Heavenly Round-Up: The season is beginning to catch up to itself. The first frantic rush to git 'er done is drawing to a close. Now comes the long, constant haul between here and there. The groove has been established and must be maintained to be meaningful. The beat carries us along its coursing rhythm towards our distant goals. Hold fast to your purpose. Develop patience along with discipline. This is a time of diligent productivity. Eschew resting on your laurels, and you'll see fabulous yield. Dance carefully.

Aries: You are your own best advertisement. You are your own best reporter. You are your own best P.R. So why aren't you further along with your stated goals? Why are you choosing to hesitate? And why do you feel this giant pause is to your advantage? Discuss with a Taurus.

Taurus: You're ready to level up. You're ready to go the distance. You're ready to take the small step which is the giant leap when seen in perspective. But have you really done all the background work? Have you chosen with full deliberation? Have you thought it through?

Gemini: You are no longer as you once were. This is both good and bad alike. You've lost some spontaneity. You've gained some depth of comprehension. Your newfound maturity brings the gift of tenacity with it. Your lost innocence allows you to play on a wider field.

Cancer: Go step by step. Take it one day, one hour, one minute at a time. You don't have to be cruel to be kind. The world is on your side. If you could reach out to your community, you might be surprised at the in-pouring of help, hope and general good wishes.

Leo: You're torn. You love doing what you do. You're good at your work. You're vocationally engaged. It's so much more than what others seem to have. But you have another obligation. You have a mutually exclusive option in front of you, and you badly want it. Dream.

Virgo: You can't stop looking around. Everything is so much more than you'd allowed yourself to hope. You're full of the joy of the season. You're full of the desire of the times. You want more for yourself, and for those around you. Get ready to get your hands really dirty.

Libra: If you could make it easier on others (or yourself), you would totally dodge the oncoming bullet. But this is a test of will, endurance and ultimately your own belief in yourself. You can make the dream come true. It might not be at a low-ball price. Don't haggle too long.

Scorpio: Is this the relationship you want? Is it the one you'd hoped for? Is it the apotheosis of your aspirations? If it isn't, you may want to get the heck out of Dodge at about warp speed. If this is indeed your dream come true, you need to hang on and pray hard.

Sagittarius: You want what you want, when you want it. But your body is running the show this minute, and it says you'll have to hold your water whilst you clean and clear through years of over-indulgence. Have you got the strength of spirit to bring yourself to wellness?

Capricorn: You're on a roll. You've gotten farther than you could have projected given the inputs. And yet, you have so much farther you need to go before you're even half way there. So gird up your loins, tighten the buckle on your belt, and get ready to make it so!

Aquarius: You're a blast when you allow yourself to let your hair down. Could you choose to relax just a little this one time? It's been a while, and you may need a reminder of your better self and a fresher interpretation of your duties and obligations. Go out with a Libra.

Pisces: Patience will only take you so far. After that, it begins to look like laissez-faire apathy in sheep's clothing. Don't let anyone assume you're not fully invested in the desirable outcome. Don't let anyone assume you're indifferent to any of the possible outcomes.
