Heavenly Round-Up: When in the course of human events it becomes necessary to separate facts from fantasies, don't be too quick to discard the bathwater when you collect the baby. Those fantasies contain the seeds of a reality you want and would work to achieve. Will you take the dare and ingest the oracular wonders of your own imagination? That's not even legal in some states. Rely on your intuition to create answers from the scraps of questions littered around you. Develop a fresh strategy Friday. Don't act alone.

Aries: Patience is not your strong suit. It's hardly in your working vocabulary. All the same, there's a dish of biding-your-time before you, and few functional alternatives. Use your rich inner life to plot the relevant tactics you'll want when you're up and out again.

Taurus: If wishes were horses, your stable would break zoning laws. Do you find yourself far from your desires? Do you perceive a widening gap between what you want and where you're going? Are you ready to throw on the emergency brake and work this through?

Gemini: You're distracted by the details. You're bothered by the fine print. You're annoyed with the everlasting last straws falling all around you. If you took a minute to reorganize, streamline and fine-tune, you might discover the capacity needed to git 'er done.

Cancer: Take off the sackcloth and ashes. You can mourn, but what you're grieving was never really there in the first place. Is that the best your infinitely compassionate heart can do? Let yourself off the hook, and you'll come alive with a future of which you'd never dreamed.

Leo: You're still under enormous pressure, but you've developed the strength to manage the burden. You still have a resource shortfall, but you can see light at the end of that tunnel. You're still waiting for the other shoe to drop, but you're not afraid to greet the day.

Virgo: How will you go forward if you're not done with the past? You have a lot of material you'd put by to be dealt with at a more convenient time. Is now the time? If not now, when? If not you, who? Work through your karmic backlog with an open mind. Wear stripes.

Libra: What would it be worth to you to be able to quickly pull yourself from the mire and routine and live as free as bird on the wing? There's a trade-off. Your connectivity with and involvement in community would be drastically reduced. You have a fresh choice here.

Scorpio: Pensive much? Now would be a great time for action. Now would be a great time for initiative. Now would be a great time for tireless dynamism. Make sure you're in top form for the labors to come. Get plenty of sleep, water, vitamins and exercise. Dream deeply.

Sagittarius: There's a time and a place for profundity. Sometimes you can't resist, but try to curb your tongue in any case. It's easier to wish you'd said something than wish you could unsay something. Hold your horses until the dust clears and you have a real objective.

Capricorn: Contained within the structure you created for yourself, a sort of exoskeleton, you're wondering if it's time to molt. You've been growing and becoming and your former shape has shifted. Weigh the risks and rewards before committing to a new course of action.

Aquarius: Once again, you yearn for simplicity as you battle the two-headed ogre of ignorance and entropy. You're walking the talk until your ankles swell and your mouth is dry. Could you drop back and take five to regroup, relax and refresh yourself before remounting?

Pisces: Seemliness is next to invisibility. Sometimes you have to kick up a fuss to get others to see you properly. Don't be afraid to be bright, loud and highly tactile. Don't shy away from speaking your mind, writing the truth and creating to tolerance. Ask Capricorn.
