Heavenly Round-Up: There's a time and place for everything; this is probably neither. You're impatient to get it all going. You're ready to jump in with both feet. You're hopping around like you can't hold your water. But this isn't your best window of opportunity. Instead of focusing on your own needs and improvements, keep an eye on what you can do for others. This is the season of giving, and your generosity will be repaid in full with interest – have no fear on that count!

Aries: Walk tall and hold your head up. You've been representing in the best of all possible arenas. Since you're temporarily afflicted with virtuous conduct, you may as well make the most of it. Choose where you give carefully. Pay attention to what will help the most.

Taurus: You're confused by the speed at which things are going (some too fast, others too slow). You dislike being confused. This may lead to less than useful knee-jerk reactions on your part. Take a deep breath, clear your head, and sing when the stress begins to build up.

Gemini: You may not have to see the forest, since you're up close and personal with all of those trees. Resist all the well-meaning advice; they would have to walk a mile in your moccasins to know what really works. Shop early for the gifts you wish to give. Return late.

Cancer: You're as conscientious as you are contentious. This makes for long ethical exchanges where short pleasantries may have done the job just as well. Release, relax and re-evaluate. You may find you're not in as dire a condition as you'd been imagining. Ask Libra.

Leo: Not only is it not your fault, there was nothing you could have done to change the outcome – even if you'd had advance warning. So let go of your fretting and stewing. Rather than seeking the perfect solution, look for the most viable approach. You'll go far Sunday.

Virgo: Is this long cycle drawing to a close for you? Are you getting over getting through this last rough patch? Can you plot your course into a brand new you? Of course you can. You've got good enough rhythm. If you don't want to dance, you could jump rope instead.

Libra: It's a morass, no question. You're in a pickle, and you don't know how you got there. Don't let this one sit. Procrastination has often been your friend, but not this cycle. Extricate yourself and get on with achieving forward motion while you can. Call on Friday.

Scorpio: You wouldn't do a thing differently if you could go back and start over. Which just goes to prove how amazingly stubborn you really are! Fine, be that way. But bend over backward to make things right in the here and now. Your insight will serve you well.

Sagittarius: You're in a hole you built yourself. You can see the top, but you're not sure how to get out of how you got in. You could seek assistance. You could come clean. You could continue to cover up, but that really isn't in your best interests in the long run.

Capricorn: You're the captain of time and tide alike. You're rolling through your ''do'' lists like someone's paying you to ''git 'er done.'' You're as precise as you can stand to be under the circumstances. So why do you feel so becalmed by anomie? Find an honest answer soon.

Aquarius: Once upon a time you were perfect. You strove for perfection. You recognized it when you saw it around you. Now you're beset by flaws and faced with uncontained cock-ups. It's not how you want your life to be. What would you give to make it all work again?

Pisces: You've long been the queen of all you survey. You've long held court from the catbird seat. Your flexibility has played in your favor. Notice all the past tense work going on? It's time to reshape, reform and recommit to what really matters. Reinvent yourself.
