Heavenly Round-Up: Why is it that when you hold the mirror up to life, you keep focusing on that one zit and not the larger portrait of the times? Is it a flaw in your character? Is it a strength in your perceptual wardrobe? Sometimes how you frame the answer makes it valid. There is no true/false paradigm acceptable in real life. People are still wholly analog; digital sells our souls and potentials short. Open yourself to the larger possibilities whilst keeping abreast of the fine print.

Aries: You may not be feeling your best, but that's no reason to turn down the adventure time has placed before you. You may not imagine you're fully prepared, but when has that stopped you in the past? You may not know the answer, but you'd best set about finding it.

Taurus: Your superior tactile capacity rarely gives you the edge in this modern world. But here comes a chance to shine through your awareness of the tiniest details and your ability to give them the attention they deserve. Don't procrastinate, but do take your time Sunday.

Gemini: You've been running the Red Queen's race trying to stay in one place. What would it take to get ahead? Have you considered stepping off the track in order to get a better perspective on what's in play? Use your observational superiority to make new connections.

Cancer: Persistence serves you better in some cycles than in others. Intuition occasionally leads you right to your goals. Can you find a way to combine the two traits? Can you trust yourself to move in a direction which appears curved up close, but is direct from a distance?

Leo: Destiny wears a face you may not recognize this time. You know you're getting closer to what you wanted when you started. But you don't feel that you have the handle on the situation for which you'd hoped. It's not a perfect world. That's no reason to give up.

Virgo: Suddenly you have all the answers. Suddenly you're the go-to person for solutions. Suddenly you're more powerful in the vacuum of leadership than anyone could have anticipated. Don't let it go to your head. It's a distraction, an illusion, a point along a line.

Libra: Once you've understood that your dreams will stay only dreams until you person-up and set your nose to the grindstone, you're most of the way there. You can achieve anything to which you set your mind and bring your heart, but you have to go the distance.

Scorpio: You have a community and you're not afraid to use it—right? It's not an imposition, it's a new position. You've given everything you could to make others more able to become themselves. Will you deny yourself the same chance? Seek a Capricorn for counsel.

Sagittarius: It will always be the littlest things which bring you the greatest grief. You have a good eye for the big picture—and hardly any patience for the nitty-gritty nuts and bolts. Fine. Delegate what you can and distribute the rest across enough time you don't go crazy.

Capricorn: You're rested and ready, though you haven't got the tan just right. You're good to go, but you doubt your own capacity to fulfill the obligations of the dream. If you can't bring yourself to trust you might as well rely on your famous perseverance. Go the distance.

Aquarius: No, you're not the loony. The situation itself has gotten out of hand. Can you center yourself in the maelstrom of diffused command in order to bring chaos into some form of perceptible order? You could if you'd give yourself an extra minute and a few deep breaths.

Pisces: Time is on your side. The tide may not be. This constant push and pull as the universe drags at the edges of reality--stretching and refining it into the thin membrane of life as we know it--causes you some tough moments, but it tenderizes your commitments!
