Heavenly Round-Up: Who're you trying to kid? Sometimes you must tear it down to build it up. Sometimes you must go back to the beginning and start again to finish. Sometimes you must tell the truth differently to share reality accurately. Be as straightforward as you can. Identify your deepest wishes and desires; be honest with yourself about the path from here to there. Don't be afraid of the spiral path to your goals -- it's the shape DNA takes for a reason. Rethink strategy Saturday.

Aries: You could, if you had the means to get your stuff together promptly. Too bad you're not feeling well. Too bad you're not feeling motivated. Too bad you're not feeling flush. Would it be worth it if the situation were different? Can you change it significantly?

Taurus: Time and tide may not be on your side in the short term. But you're in it for the long haul, and you can afford to pace yourself. No, it's not the most convenient option. Yet it's the way that is still open. Be as patient as your reputation and reap rewards.

Gemini: If it were up to you, you wouldn't have to get out of bed until all the fuss was over. If it were up to you, you wouldn't have to make a decision until you could predict outcomes. If it were up to you, you would have a built-in trapdoor. Hang the curtain, get behind it.

Cancer: There are problems like the Hydra: Cut off one head and others grow in its place. Find the alternative method of reducing friction and opposition. Can you co-opt the difficulty with your considerable charm? Can you use sympathy? Can you afford not to? Reposition.

Leo: Where there's a will, there's a way. But the way may not start off in the direction you'd planned on going. Have you got the imagination to see your path unfold along a different trajectory? Have you got the belief in yourself to allow the environment to participate?

Virgo: You couldn't be more bored with pushing the same damn rock up the hill, again and again. You couldn't be more tired with facing down the same limitations and objections to your reasonable solution. Couldn't you be more flexible? Ready to reevaluate and direct?

Libra: There's a time and a place for everything. You're running behind and the re-organization has left you adrift in the world of things you can't find. Still, this may be a chance for you to see with fresh eyes all that there is and all that may come to be. Look closely.

Scorpio: Why are you all fed up when you feel so hungry for the intangibles? Why are you so rigid when you demand fluidity? Why are you ready to hit the warpath to enforce the peace? Your oxymorons are gaining on you. Let outside logic flow in and reshape the dialectic.

Sagittarius: Don't believe the hype. Don't propagate the nonsense. Don't be a part of the problem. Instead, find the means to build yourself a safe perspective from which to pick up the various pieces of your existence and forge them into a meaningful whole. Be patient.

Capricorn: You were the captain of your ship and the master of your soul. Now you're anxious and adrift. Accept that things are not going as planned. Accept that you don't control the universe. Accept that alternatives may be the better part of valor. Push!

Aquarius: You've been in this circumstance before. You've borne the brunt of attention in times of difficulty and not only survived, but made a name for yourself as someone who can come up with the goods when the chips are down. Think outside the box once again.

Pisces: Whether it's what you wanted to be learning, or whether it's where you would have chosen to be, you have this one life and the shape of it is as it is. Work within the limits of physical time and space to find the infinite well of potential within you. Call on a Taurus.
