Heavenly Round-Up: You can't help looking ahead even as the past tugs at your shirttails. You're focused on the yet-to-be, though that which has already passed demands your full attention – and a string of time you haven't got anymore. How can you mediate between where you've been and where you want to go? How can you develop that which you hope to become in light of the baggage behind you, yet inextricably part of you? How can you not understand that the present is the key? Reflect steadily.

Aries: In the once upon a time of your own life, there's a story you've told yourself again and again. Is it time to give the story a new ending? Does it need a fresh middle? Could it do with a different beginning? You're in a position to choose. Don't delay, make your change.

Taurus: What if you had the power to control how you earned, what you liked, where you lived and whether you were happy? What if you're getting to be the last one to know that you have those capabilities? What if you gave up on struggling and went with determination?

Gemini: You still can, if you really want to. It's a thing onto which you have been holding for so long, you may not remember clearly what it looks like, or what it can really do, or why you collected it in the first place. Are you brave enough to look? Can you change your mind?

Cancer: You don't so much walk on the wild side as scuttle along the sidelines avidly observing. Can you let go of your binky long enough to find out what it would be like to shed your security and let life lead you by the hand? Dine out with an old crony on Friday to find out more.

Leo: Lift up your eyes to the hills. You will find solace in their majesty. Stare into the depths of the desert. There you will see peace in the struggle for existence. Drift into reverie as you gaze into the ocean. The message there is the timelessness of all passion and action.

Virgo: If it were easy, it wouldn't be worth your consideration. If it were simple, you wouldn't find yourself engaged in the process. If it were quick, it would be over before you had begun to internalize the meaning of the cycle. You demand more; you receive more. Rejoice.

Libra: You can't let it go. You can't put it behind you. You can't say you won't. Now you've got your ultimatums out of the way, are you ready to see what can be done? Are you ready to find out how you can grow? Are you ready to allow yourself to get out of whack to become real?

Scorpio: You're so busy not compromising that you may be leaving the good things out with the less than perfect. Is this really what you want? Is this the best you can do for yourself? You have the capability to do and become so much more. Revisit your objectives Monday.

Sagittarius: Well, there's the devil over there. And that way lays the deep blue sea. You're riding toward them, bouncing around between the disagreeable horns of a wild, half-broken dilemma. Couldn't you find yourself a more pleasant mode of transportation? Release obligation.

Capricorn: You're as good as it gets when the chips fall where they may. Don't let anyone tell you differently, it would be an insult to their understanding and your comprehension. You may have to restring the entirety of the project at hand, but you have the vision to do it.

Aquarius: You would if you could, but you're not sure you ought to allow yourself to go as far as all that. This is more laudable than it is sensible. Plug your brain back in. You won't get far without it operating at full capacity. Ask a Scorpio for the hard, cold truth.

Pisces: Whether it was what you intended or not, you're on a kind of a roll. In fact, you're gathering momentum, though it seems to be carrying you faster and faster uphill. Is this a miracle? Is this the power of individuation? You have more juice than you'd imagined.
