Heavenly Round-Up: Contrast and confusion are the name of the game. Feeling ultra-grounded wars with feeling like you're in a deep rut. The limitless possibilities are hemmed in by the vague sensation you're imagining the whole thing. You want to follow your dreams wherever they lead, but do you really want to walk through quicksand? Take time as you choose a careful, yet carefree path. Examine the evidence and go with your gut. Learn the essentials, and toss them aside when it's time to express yourself to the world.

Aries: Spinning like a dreidel, you're not taking bets on which side will be showing when you stop. Are you feeling lucky? Listen to your intuition. Trust your instincts. Go with what your lowest chakras tell you is the ''right'' answer. You may already be a winner.

Taurus: It's not the end of the world. The end of the world would take less time, and be more spectacular. This is the end of an era. But it's a personal era. This is also the beginning of a period of acceptance and accomplishment. Will you invest early and often?

Gemini: Torn? Again? You love to have more choices than you know what to do with. You've got 'em in spades. Now it's time to sort through your many, many options. Consider your hopes. Consider the facts. Consider the desired outcomes. Be considerate.

Cancer: Sense battles sensitivity. You want to be grounded, collected and firm. You find yourself adrift, scattered and ready to cave. What's up with that? Maybe you're not the hard-ass you've believed yourself to be. Maybe you catch more flies with honey.

Leo: The tempo is slow, deliberate and almost unbearably extended into the main body of the work. Have you got what it takes to let time take time? Is there much to be gained by rushing? Go back through the details and go over the fine print. Call on Tuesday.

Virgo: You're bothered by the little things. You're annoyed by the least interruption. You're on edge and you're not afraid to let the world know it. Do you need a little break? Would you profit from some real downtime? Are you past due for a personal day? Reflect.

Libra: You wanted to go the distance. Instead you fell, and fell short. Can you pick yourself back up and get on with the business of getting on? Will you stand instead and mourn your less-than-perfect performance thus far? Don't be a drip. Be a trendsetter instead.

Scorpio: You've got the chops. You've got the props. You've got the urge to go farther and get more done than you ever have before. If you could only get organized. If you could only get focused. If you could only get up a little earlier. Set your alarm Sunday.

Sagittarius: Simplicity is often overrated by those who don't like multitasking. All the same, you might wish to throttle back and take a minute to review the advantages of doing fewer things at once, and doing all of them with more satisfaction. Reduce caffeine intake.

Capricorn: Constancy is a strong point with you. But lately, you have the overwhelming urge to turn your back on your life – after setting the whole mess on fire. Take a deep breath. Take a step back. Take advice from someone less in the fray. You'll know Friday.

Aquarius: Dissatisfaction with reality has been a constant in your life for as long as you care to remember. Would it help if you changed your goals? Would it be easier if you shifted your frame of reference? Would it make a difference if you listened more?

Pisces: You're still the one. You're the tops. You're the alpha and the omega of being you. Don't allow others to run your show out of laziness or uncertainty. Now more than ever, you're able to get in touch with your authenticity and let your life speak through action.
