Heavenly Round-Up: You're bringing home those necessities you require to see you through the coming dark months. Don't forget to plan for your soul as well as your body whilst storing up your treasures on earth. Don't forget to plan for miraculous calamities and wondrous misfortunes. Every setback points the way to a richer victory down the road. Make yourself a part of the solution by remembering first impressions count. Let a smile be your umbrella and use the French word when you can't remember the English.

Aries: Tempers may flare over pointless matters of niggling magnitude. This does not give you carte blanche to run amok. This does not mean you have to put up with a hassle you didn't earn, either. Take slow, deep breaths and continue looking forward -- even while cleaning as you go.

Taurus: Piffle is as piffle provokes. You may find yourself doing odd things in response to odder behaviors on the part of your partner. Could you be a passive instigator in things peculiar? If you want more than bystander status, plant as you would choose to reap. Wear your patience.

Gemini: SNAFUs of FUBAR quality litter the landscape of your personal experience. Some mistakes are neither foreseeable nor preventable. Sometimes blamestorming won't fix the past -- or improve the future. An innocent pretense could get out of hand quickly. Walk the walk gently.

Cancer: If you have the will, there is a way. The way is not direct. The way is not clear. The way is not smooth. But it exists and it may well be worth every ounce of effort you expend to get the job done. Let your life continue to speak. Step forward graciously.

Leo: You could have been a contender. In fact, you still are if you're brave enough to reframe the question to accommodate your change in circumstances. This isn't the end of the world as you know it. This really is the first day of the rest of your life. Get into it.

Virgo: You have wished and wished for elusive fulfillment. You may be surprised at how near you are to your dream. First, there will be a final round of hard labor to achieve the foundation of what matters most. You have the chops. Will you apply them? Wholeheartedly?

Libra: No, it's not really your fault. You were just with it when the whole thing went to hell in a hand basket. All righty, then: Pick yourself up and get on with doing what needs to be done to rebuild and reconnect the world as you remember it. Don't delay past Monday!

Scorpio: You so wish it would be that simple. Sometimes your wishes are granted and sometimes they're just another fantasy to contemplate in the tub. You won't have time to watch which way the cat jumps, so there are bound to be surprises round every corner. Go there.

Sagittarius: You're filled with secret nostalgia. The way things were, wonderful but somehow not -- right? Hence, your present situation's shape . Admit the truth then get on with making the most with what you have. You'll beat the ups and downs of the Big Picture. Sing aloud.

Capricorn: You have understanding. Is it a predicament or an opportunity? You're ready to be the judge of that and other matters. You've already reassessed the assumptions of the basic framework. Will you tear them down to the ground and start over? Will you merely renovate?

Aquarius: You hear more than you let on. You know more than you ever share. You have a hoard, and you've been waiting for the right time to use it. Is this your lucky moment? You have that talent for reverse fortune. Take hold of your vision and run as far as you can with it.

Pisces: Poor baby. There, that probably feels a little better doesn't it? You hated that choice and now you don't have to keep on making it. You're ready for all that and more, since you've freed up your soul. That giant sucking sound isn't a vacuum, it's life returning to your heart.
