Heavenly Round-Up: Things are more like they are now than they've ever been. You can take advantage of this confluence of shifting energies. Start up what you'd put aside in confusion. Approach complex tasks with ''beginner's mind,'' be ready to accept what you don't know, and proceed with optimism and openness. Listen to the intuitions of your heart – your emotional radar is turned up to 11 and you'd do well to rely on it. You're moving forward so long as you include your past experiences. Change is good.

Aries: So much is happening. Some of it you chose, some of it was thrust upon you. You'll be surprised at how much you enjoy the unexpected – and the old business that comes back up with a vengeance. But that old business is the key to your future. Act early.

Taurus: You're ready to go with the flow. Everyone wants this to go easily and well, without a lot of stress. But there's a fly in the ointment, no matter how you try to cut yourself a slice of slack. Stand up tall, square your shoulders and face the issues head-on.

Gemini: It's not a picnic. It's not a walk in the park. It's not a sure thing. But you can have more effect on the outcome than you presently think. You can have what you want, just not when you want it. You can go the distance, you'll only need to commit.

Cancer: Floating on the currents of life is not giving up, giving in or chucking it over. Right now, the path of least resistance is absolutely your best choice. Use this break to reformulate your attitude and approach. Use this space to clear and freshen your heart.

Leo: On the one hand, there's that endless struggle and challenge: rewarding but draining. On the other hand, there's your need to be the one at the center and the one to whom everyone looks up. Can you have both sides of the equation? Can you bring the juice?

Virgo: Time and tide are sucking at the ankles of your soul. There's so much in flux, and so much you're glad is changing. Don't stand in the way of what's coming toward you. Build a ladder to the future, and climb it with your whole heart and thoughtful balance.

Libra: It's not you. It's not yours. But you're part of the equation, and you signed on for the full ride. If you're still of sound mind and body, then you need to own your stuff and get on with solving your problems so that you can contribute to the greater good. Be here now.

Scorpio: Destiny would be the easy way out. Quit expecting the universe to keep your daybook, and start making your own appointments with fate. You have the chops to make lemonade out of any lemons you may have on hand. Don't delay. Listen to your gut.

Sagittarius: You're elated. You're on fire. You're in the midst of a swamp, and you're lost, and you couldn't be more delighted. So get in touch with your inner compass. Pay attention to the clues embedded in nature all around you. Find your guiding star, follow it.

Capricorn: Peace and quiet are good things. But they're not for you right now. You'll be fighting the good fight whether you're onboard with the duty or not. So gird up your loins, strap on your armor and take up your weapons of choice. Bring your ''A'' game Monday.

Aquarius: It's not time to open your wallet. First you need to complete your budgetary planning. Then you need to actively pursue your goals. You'll do better at this if you enlist the aid of those around you. You can't do this alone, and it would be a mistake to try.

Pisces: You're billowing with the possibilities. Like a sail in a changing wind with the barometer falling, you've got lots to focus on all at once and all of it is critically important. So relax and open yourself to the present in order to achieve your myriad happy futures.
