Heavenly Round-Up: Time is a river upon which we float. Keep this metaphor in mind should you decide to swim upstream to take care of something now behind you. There's a lot of energy involved in fixing the past. Is it the best use of your resources, or could you move forward remembering that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure? On Monday you should have a firmer idea of the ground upon which you wish to stand. A closed mouth gathers no foot. Don't forget!

Aries: You're in it for what you can bring out alive and is able to assist you in your own endeavors. Go on letting people believe you're as altruistic as all that. It won't hurt your reputation to have this on the books. You'll do better by dressing up for the event rather than down.

Taurus: It's been building a long time. You're ready for your close-up. You're ready to stand up and be counted. You're ready to speak your piece and you're no longer afraid of the potential fallout. The courage of your convictions is beautiful. You'll be rewarded Friday.

Gemini: It's time to open the floodgates and let all the small fry through with the big fish upon whom you've had your eye lo these many moons. You'll be bringing home the fat catch -- and you'll be applauded as the mighty hunter you really are. Wear a nice pattern.

Cancer: You're not bored; you're overwhelmed. You're not moribund; you're trapped. You're not foolish; you're afraid. You'll find all manner of inaccurately ascribed motives dropped on you in the cycle to come. Keep your eyes open and your mouth shut. Silence is plausible.

Leo: It's a lot to think about. It's a lot to put up with. It's a lot to bear. But you have a strong back for the journey ahead and you're not afraid to make the hard decisions and wrest satisfaction from getting the job done, however slow a process that may be. Enjoy.

Virgo: There's quite a bit to do. You're the one upon whom the brunt of it has landed. Is it your perennial competence? Is it your aura of bustling goodwill? Is it your experience with difficult matters such as this has evolved into? All that and your winning smile.

Libra: Don't look down if you're afraid of heights. You stretched yourself and you've reached the top of your ambitions in the field. You had no idea it would be this kind of a process. You had no idea it would take the time it has. You had no idea you would succeed.

Scorpio: You're in it to win it, as always. But you're going to have to focus. You're going to have to call in a mess of favors. You're going to have to tap your network and everyone else's to get from here to where you really want to be. Use the force on Saturday.

Sagittarius: Sometimes looking over your shoulder is the worst thing you can do. Sometimes it's the smartest. Into which category have you fallen? Your graceful clumsiness might even compensate for the stumble at that crucial moment. Rely on your allies and cronies to tell you.

Capricorn: You're the one with the most to gain. You're the one with everything on the line. You're the one who will stick with it through thick and thin to get from here all the way to there. Don't allow yourself to be distracted by naysayers. They don't have a clue.

Aquarius: You have seen the future and it has a funny shape. Funny as in peculiar is the size of it. Since it wasn't what you expected, you have choices. You can walk away and throw your hands up. You can stick it out and see if you like surprises. Think hard.

Pisces: There's a mystery wrapped in an enigma stuffed inside a deep-fried taco shell, or something. It will be a delightfully lighthearted solution to a matter you'd thought was deep and thorny. There are great surprises around most of the corners this week. Allow them!
