Heavenly Round-Up: Welcome to the shooting match which is your life. Take aim at your objectives, align your spine with your desires and put your back into it. You've got the necessary coordination to hit what you're shooting for, but you'll have to concentrate. You're in the thick of your reward phase, again. Appreciate what comes your way—and remember you made a conscious choice somewhere back down the line to bring you to the current moment. Enjoy the moment, but keep your eyes open and on the prize.

Aries: Look hard. Measure twice in order to cut once. Pay attention to the instructions as provided, and read them all the way through before you get started—this step could save you a bucket of time and resources both. Work your metabolic responses on Monday.

Taurus: Is it you? Is it something you were supposed to have done? Is it nobody's business but your own at the end of the day? Really, you need to relax. You need to get out more. You need to begin planning your next big vacation. Maybe you need a home makeover!

Gemini: Wearing your concern on your sleeve is comforting to no one but yourself. Contain your angst and contain your temper and you'll find you get more communicated and more completed than you'd dared to think possible. Ask two more people than you want for best results.

Cancer: Walking the talk not only gets on your nerves, it gives you blisters and makes your corns act up. OK. Is it time to get shoes better suited to the tasks at hand? And what shape will those symbolic shoes take when they manifest in your daily life? Feel out the answer early.

Leo: Timing is everything. Timing, and delegation. Timing, delegation and concentration. Timing, delegation, concentration and planning. You get the idea. You're going to have to form a team. You're going to have to multi-task. You're going to have to innovate. Get going.

Virgo: There's a symphony playing in your head. There's a forest growing in your heart. There's a new complexity in the air and it's got you reeling with the possibilities. Are you down with the consequences? Are you up for change? Build an existence outside the box.

Libra: You've been squeezed like a grape. You've been interrogated like a criminal. You've been flayed and laid on the coals like a saint of old or a steak du jour. You've been up the road and down the road, but you haven't reached out. Now it's time to go to your network. Call Sunday.

Scorpio: Send up a flare to let yourself know where you've gotten to. You're taking all the right steps, but you're not moving very quickly. Try to set realistic goals and make better use of the time (which is at hand). Create community with sincerity, not so much the charisma!

Sagittarius: A lot of the old tricks just won't work anymore. It's time to own up to your shortcomings and find short-term fixes and long-term strategies to get your ball rolling again. You've been hibernating. Now you need to wake up and forage for all you're worth. Stretch.

Capricorn: Time and tide have been riding you like a bronco-buster at round-up. Can you turn the tables and make your obstacles into opportunities? You have the technology and the access and the resources. Do you have the necessary will? Are you ready to be happy yet?

Aquarius: Look behind the door. Look under the bed. Look at the back of the closet. You've left your self-respect somewhere, and it wasn't at that crazy club downtown, either. If you want to take the risk of looking yourself in the eye, you'll be surprised by what you see.

Pisces: Desire wages with rage in a surprising twist on an old theme. You had no idea you could feel so conflicted without your head popping clean off your shoulders. Yet here you stand, and you're in a fairly viable, if more vulnerable, state. Listen to the Taurus.
