Heavenly Round-Up: There's a price to be paid, and it's as inexorable as time, tide and taxes. Was it worth the tab you ran up on the Karmic debt meter? Was it worth the second mortgage on your soul? Was it worth the cost to your ethics and integrity? Given how late it is for buyer's remorse, you may have to find how to live with your choices and the expenditure of energy they've represented ever since. There's a silver lining in knowing what you're paying for.

Aries: Test your understanding before leaping into the fray, weapons drawn and wildly brandished as your blood-curdling battle cry rings out. You'll want to be 100 percent certain who you're defending/attacking and, if possible, what happens after. Wear gold to shine Friday.

Taurus: Welcome to the long, dark teatime of the soul. Funny how just when it's getting lighter outside, your interior vista becomes darker and more prone to shadow and contrast. Make note of the chiaroscuro within and all around you. There's a lesson in perspective for you.

Gemini: You couldn't resist and now you're wondering what the impact will be when the word gets around. People like you, they really do. But they also want to trust you and to rely on you and to make you a part of their long-term equation of camaraderie. How can you help?

Cancer: You'd known since the beginning that it might come to this. You let yourself forget the worst-case scenario for a little while. And then the possibilities came crashing down on you like an emotional tsunami. Hang onto your deeply rooted faith in happy endings and sing.

Leo: Yes, it really can take as long as that. Yes, it seems to be taking at least twice as long as you'd expected, even though you'll find you're still on schedule if you go back and check your notes. Yes, things will work themselves out. Time is more on your side than force.

Virgo: You're on edge and you're certain you have good reason. Even so, you might be more productive if you allowed yourself to relax and kick back in your attitude if not your work load. Find a way to take the low-vibe road to get from where you are to where you want to be.

Libra: You've seen more than you'd expected. You've learned more than you knew. You've been there and back again and you're still not done -- not by a long shot. So buckle down and find your rhythm and call in a few favors and the process will proceed from there.

Scorpio: It isn't a matter of blame, or a matter of bailiwick, or a matter of authority. But there's still a problem and there're still turf issues and there's still responsibility. So step up to the plate and let yourself shine as you take on the beast and go the distance.

Sagittarius: Like Hamlet, you have bad dreams. Like Macbeth, you fear your creditors. Like Romeo, your timing is off. But you have something they don't: a positive outlook and winning disposition. You'll be called on to act the bigger person, but you have the chops and game alike.

Capricorn: Stop pointing the finger. It came from within and that's all there is to it. Stop hiding your head. It won't get better with added ignorance. Stop planning your retreat. It will follow you like the Furies if you try to skip out. Stand your ground. Stand proud and tall.

Aquarius: If you go all the way there, how do you plan to get back? How will you cover if you're delayed? How will you square it with your budget and your conscience? It's tempting, but so is trying to eat your weight in chocolate in one sitting. It isn't a good idea. Rethink!

Pisces: You've walked the line. You've toed the line. You've drawn the line. You've dared others, and yourself, to cross the line. What else can you do with this useful, proto-geometric element? It's time to find the function in the form and to maximize your outcomes with best inputs.
