Heavenly Round-Up: It's a funny thing -- what we wish for. It's funnier when those wishes are granted. It's funniest of all to watch folks actually live with their dreams and desires over the long term. Laugh at yourself before you settle in to laugh at the foibles of others. There's a clownish energy running wild in the world, and we're all much, much more amusing than we can know. Let your dignity ride shotgun and give your sense of humor and cosmic perspective a shot at the driver's seat. Who knows?

Aries: All that chaos generated by the collision of your competing ideals is great for airing out the hope chest of your expectations, but it raises a lot of dust and questions. If you long for calm resolution, you may have a wait in front of you. Take up Zen archery for tranquility.

Taurus: You're on a roll now that you've got the lay of the land. There's a rhythm after which you've been chasing, now it's almost within reach. Persist in your quest for right inner timing. You could have your cake and eat it too if you have the patience. Go shopping with standards.

Gemini: You could just wiggle your nose and make a wish, and it might even come true. Or you could it talk it out for the umpteenth time with the last pair of ears in your cohort still willing to listen. Or you could hold still, hold yourself accountable and hold out for happiness.

Cancer: Since when did you want a high-maintenance partnership. Or rather, since when weren't you the high-maintenance one? Tricky isn't it? Taking turns happens. You needn't be cheerful, but no extra points are awarded for creative dourness in the line of duty. Reflect.

Leo: It's still all in the details, those pesky ever-shifting details. Once you've delegated away the lion's share of the fussy work, you'll be able to use your considerable imagination to focus in on a new way to see these old issues. You might even cop a fair-sized Eureka for your time.

Virgo: Are they just cowardly? Or could they be seeing you in a new light? You've got the respect of all concerned, no question. And you're on top of your game, this minute. You're still not perfect, and you still can't let go of it. But remember to bask in the adulation anyway.

Libra: Your concerns are not imaginary. But they've become developed to the point that they're starting to look like paranoia. So relax a little and take the time to educate yourself in some method of defense that meets the criteria of your issues. Get support from a Pisces.

Scorpio: Are you in disgrace? Or are you only running on empty? What would constitute a means of refueling your soul? Do you need a quick get away? Do you need a quick makeover? Do you need a quick course in perspective, compassion and relaxation? Get to work.

Sagittarius: The suspense is not killing you. Play by the rules, don't be late, dot your 'i's and cross your 't's and everything will be hunky-dory. Stop waiting for the other shoe to drop. It's all over but the shouting, and it's just not about you anymore. Take a deep breath and exhale.

Capricorn: Your momentum seems to be grinding to a halt. You're afraid to get close enough to see what the source of the problem is. But it won't get better or go away by being ignored. Get into the mess and give it your best overhaul. You'll know the truth. Will it set you free?

Aquarius: Heads up, there's a sea change with your name on it. Something is changing at a nearly imperceptible rate and its effect on your future will be profound. Kudos to those who spot the shift and are proactive enough to catch the wave and ride it all the way in. Go on.

Pisces: As weird as it all is, at least you have interesting company. As alien as you sometimes feel, you're not alone on this one. You may wonder at your sudden choices. You may wonder where those options suddenly came from. You may wonder where your keys are. It's okay.
