Heavenly Round-Up: Suddenly the stupidity reaches critical mass and pops like a zit whose time is at hand. This is both a good thing and a bad thing. Now you're all out of anticipation. Excuses dissolve and obstacles melt away like rainbows when the sky clears. You're stuck with moving forward. You're forced to leave emergency preparedness and actually spring into action. There's a trick or two still up your sleeve. Don't hesitate to go there. Eat your Wheaties, take your vitamins and get plenty of sleep.

Aries: You're good enough, you're smart enough and, gosh darn it, people like you, too. So see if you can lose that chip on the shoulder. If not, you'll be next in line for the chiropractor. You could get in the mood by crossing things off your list, whether they're naughty or nice.

Taurus: You generally prefer to hunker down against the fierce elements, but you don't have that luxury at present. Pace yourself as you rise to the occasion and forge through to a clearer future. You're easily distracted when you dislike the task at hand. Use trickery.

Gemini: It's not as easy as you make it look and that might be part of the problem. Would you consider making it seem more difficult than it is? Would you consider doing less with more attention to detail and therefore greater satisfaction? Would your spirit be willing?

Cancer: Even with your hands behind your back, you may be able to break hearts with a single word or glance. Understand the power of your charm and try to use your gifts for the greater good. You can't remember the last time you were so free and unfettered.

Leo: Didn't you wish for exactly this? Now that your dream has come true it may be too late to edit out those factors leading to the unintended consequences you've been experiencing lately. You've been finding it hard to reach out lately. Take time to connect with your old posse.

Virgo: You're not bad; you're not even drawn that way. But there's something of a witch hunt in the air and you might be on the short list for inquisitional attentions. Will you attempt to conform? Will you stand for your beliefs and damn the consequences? Will you find the middle path?

Libra: You don't have to feel singled out. You don't have to think you're isolated. You don't have to get all agitated. You have to reach out. You have to use your words. You have to cling to the familiar, while at the same time stretch toward the future with both hands.

Scorpio: If it were easy you wouldn't be interested. If it were cut and dried you wouldn't stay engaged. If it were quick it wouldn't be worth the energy. So quit your bellyaching and get on with finding out how to solve the labyrinth. Take a ball of thread and a fresh commitment.

Sagittarius: You can't help being vain. You can't help landing on your feet. You can't help knowing what's going to happen about a split second before it does. You could go even further with what you've put together. Or you could stick around and do a really bang-up job of work.

Capricorn: You weren't the first, but you might be the last. You weren't the eldest, but you might be the most capable. You weren't the quickest, but you might have the stamina to stay the course. Given all that, where are your second thoughts now? Whom do you trust to help?

Aquarius: You are as you were made and you like what you like when you like it. It's pleasant when all the world agrees, but you share with Rhett Butler the magnificent ability not to give a damn. So proceed at your own pace toward that which you deem worthy. Enjoy the view.

Pisces: Caught between the devil and the deep blue sea, you often choose to go swimming. If you go down, you'll be in your element; and you've always wanted pearls for eyes in any case. Bring an inflatable with you this time out. You'll be able to relax and learn more thereby.
