Heavenly Round-Up: Is it time to separate? Time to dissolve the bonds of union and get on with individuation? Time to go into yourself and reach deep to bring up the germinating seeds of spring? If not now, when? If not you, then to whom shall this task be assigned? You owe it to yourself to try to be the all-fired, super-powered, ultra-condensed best version of you possible. Get in touch with your inner Candide and believe in the optimistic outcomes vectoring infinitely around you.

Aries: You've already tried ''not being.'' It is time to be. It is time, and the tide is all you could wish for. Take the boat of your soul out upon the waters of your conscious life and begin to fish in earnest for that which will make you complete upon its acquisition. Shop Tuesday.

Taurus: You're uncharacteristically impatient with known processes. Ought they be revamped and refined? Ought they be reconsidered and reevaluated for effectiveness? Ought you take a deep breath and determine how much irritation is coming from you?

Gemini: Are you eating the bear? Is the bear eating you? Can it be both at once? If so, your ouroborotic dining experience may qualify you for the next level of alchemical self-transformation. Hang on, you're in for a bumpy ride through the swamps of your unconscious matter.

Cancer: If you walk any more of the talk, you'll outdistance Mao's Long March. Certainly that's the feeling you get when you survey the terrain you've already covered in the name of your driving cause. Are you alone out there, or have you intentionally isolated yourself? Ask again.

Leo: It's not your ego, dummy. Really. You are acting from a highly developed sense of noblesse oblige, which has everything to do with generosity and concern for the greater good, and nothing at all to do with self-aggrandizement. Lighten up and go out Friday night.

Virgo: You've been the knight in shining armor again and again. Is all this rescuing helping, or are you hindering the potential for turning struggle into challenge for someone less able than yourself? Be honest, be fair, be consistent. This works on toddlers, dogs and you.

Libra: It's all about the pace. It's all about the timing. It's all about the eye contact. It isn't all about the fine print. It isn't all about the near-Talmudic appreciation you've developed for the nittiest, pickiest details. It isn't all about demonstrating logic instead of compassion.

Scorpio: Take a stand. Make yourself intentionally visible. While your usual modus operandi decrees stealth, indirection and anonymity, it really is time to stand up and make your voice heard, be counted. Your more complete vision of the situation is just what the doctor ordered.

Sagittarius: You're afire with ideas and inspiration. You're rejuvenated with the potential and possibilities. You're all that and then some. Whatever you do, don't overspend. Whatever else you do, don't get lost on your way to getting better informed. Seek a Pisces.

Capricorn: There's no end in sight of all there is to do. There's no relief in sight to lighten your burden. There's no telling how much longer you can go on like this. But you wouldn't walk away for all the tea in China, not when you've gotten this far. Buck up and keep on.

Aquarius: Moaning and groaning are all well and good if you're alone. But you've got people looking to you for support, let alone answers. Chin up and you'll do well to take the lead. The longer you leave things in stasis, the harder it will be to get them moving again.

Pisces: You're as good as that at what you do best. You're also awesome at any and all acts of empathy. You're in common cause with anyone trying to build up the dimensions of their soul. You could do worse than consider a career change to take advantage of your skills.
