Heavenly Round Up: It's not the temperature, so it must be the time. There's something different. It's all around you. It's in the air you breathe. It's there when you go to church, when you watch TV. It surrounds and interpenetrates everything. This profound, yet delicate shift promises a chance for all to become more aware of the resources in use, of the energy expended so we can go about our daily business. Choose your mode of operation with an eye to its sustainability. Choose your ambitions likewise.

Aries: No, that's not what you really look like. That was an unflattering angle and an awkward position. You might, however, want to keep in mind that such of view of your person and your persona is possible. Flatter yourself with something in rose. Or something cloisonné.

Taurus: Give yourself two thumbs up for being more adjustable than anyone had imagined. Give yourself a pat on the back for being able to meet the challenge and make the cut whilst holding on to your integrity. Give yourself a moment to catch your breath before it gets hard.

Gemini: Watch your step. The ground is shifting under you, and all around you the landscape is morphing to meet those permutations. It's like moving in to the fun house. Don't believe everything those mirrors tell you about yourself. Some of it's true, some is a distortion. Write.

Cancer: Definitions can bring out the minute flaws that others may have glossed over in their desire to get on with getting on. It will take your not-inconsiderable managing skills to make certain that all are on the firm ground required before proceeding. Take a break on Tuesday.

Leo: Let the chips fall where they may, this time. If you don't seem hyper-controlling about this mess, you'll win long-term sieges with what seems like a flick of the wrist. You can afford a little noblesse oblige. You're still ahead and the bogeyman isn't gaining on you. Wear gold.

Virgo: Is morphology destiny? Sounds like an abstract question, purely theoretical--right? Well, there's a time for theory to become praxis. You'll be face to face with some of the many implications of that simple query. Get with the program and think through your answer.

Libra: Simplicity might be the key. What would simplification mean? Would you stop multi-tasking? Would you cut back? Would you get more sleep? Would you eat more digestible foods? Would you only wear fabrics that were comfortable and flattering? Define your terms.

Scorpio: You oughtn't to be in such a hurry. Psych! Really, get the lead out. Get on the ball. Get with the program. Get a fire lit under you. Get it in gear. Get set to represent. If not now, when? If not you, whom? Present intentions inscribe this emerging long-cycle. Start early.

Sagittarius: You have seen the enemy, and it is your own money habits and current financial conditions that are most hampering your achievement of your best of all possible selves. Can you ditch it all and dash away precipitously? Should you? Can you work it out rationally? Plot.

Capricorn: You didn't used to wonder about your original face before your parents were born, or other obscure koans. You got on with making good enough in a world of trial. Now is the time to infuse your philosophy and daily life with joy -- all joy all the time. Wear more yellow.

Aquarius: Hide behind your title. Hide behind your affable, yet reserved demeanor. Hide behind your ability to rationalize your way into and out of any possible scenario. But there's a new sheriff in town and a number of current practices and tolerated behaviors won't be.

Pisces: Look deeply into the still waters of your heart. Listen there, and you will find that a deeper, more solemn note has been struck. It reverberates like a brass gong across a still monastery garden. Your vision becomes richer as that sound reaches within and transforms.
