Heavenly Round-Up: You want to charge forward without hesitation. But first, you have to make sure you're properly accessorized. You want to work through the obstacle and get it off your plate; but you're distracted by the bird singing outside your window. You want to call it a day; but first you have the last million things on your do-list. This is the way of the world at present. But you're good enough, you're smart enough and, gosh darn it, people like you. They really like you.

Aries: The secret is to concentrate on what you want to make you feel like the most-est, whilst simultaneously looking after the details with fanatical rigor. Is it fun? Only in the sense that you get a chance to see how much you can do with what you've got. Go there.

Taurus: You're the one they turn to when it gets scarily overwhelming. You're the rock to which they cling when they're at the end of their rope. You're the voice of common sense when all about you are imitating headless chickens. How do you get yours? Ask early.

Gemini: You're not lazy: you're differently productive. You're not scatterbrained, you're in extreme multi-tasking mode. You're not disorganized, you're using natural attrition tactics to figure out what to do next. It can be so, if you'll only apply yourself thoroughly.

Cancer: You are home now. Look around you. What works? What needs doing? What needs fixing? What needs a heavy reorg? You get to choose. Apply this series of questions to your inner development as well as your external world. You'll have news on Sunday.

Leo: This could be your time to shine. If only you weren't so run down. If only you weren't plagued by bad dreams. If only you could get your head back around the bigness of the Big Picture. You can't see the forest for the trees anymore. Take a long, deep breath.

Virgo: It isn't up to you, but you'll find yourself with lots to do and say, nonetheless. It isn't in your face, but that won't stop you from being helpful. It isn't your usual methodology, but suddenly you're up for anything. Keep that free spirit while solving new problems.

Libra: You need to stop looking over your shoulder. You need to forget about second guessing yourself. You need to find someone who can give you a really good, consistent haircut. Really. So get with the brand, new program and let the rubber meet the road.

Scorpio: If you were a small, necessary item, how would you be found? If you were a flower of surpassing medicinal value, where would you grow? If you were the most valuable asset in a diversified portfolio, what would your growth potential be? Reconsider.

Sagittarius: When you wish upon a star, you're putting your desires into concrete form. When you poor-mouth the guy across the hall from you, you're digging yourself a pit full of bad karma. When you realize the vital necessity of understanding this, you'll wise up.

Capricorn: You're in the mood for love: the love of a good fight. You're in the path of danger: the danger of finding out who you really are and what it would take to get you all the way there. You're in peak form: the form of being ready for liberation into a new self.

Aquarius: If you ruled the world and could make all the choices for everyone, would you be benevolent—or would you quickly become power crazed? It's hard to know what might happen if absolutes came true. Usually they don't, but this might be an exception to the rule.

Pisces: OK. You have what it takes. You know where to go. You're ready for action. So let the little things go and settle in for the ride of a lifetime. You may not comprehend all that has to be left behind to get where you're going, but the first cut should be deep.
