Heavenly Round-Up: You could tune in to the sense of structure that’s been welling up in your life. You could resolve to be more productive, focused and ready to make the most of your advantages. You could be all that you can be, if that’s what you want. If you’re unready to actualize all your potential, then you may as well cut loose, get down-and-dirty and forget consequences while reveling in circumstances. Let yourself be grounded in the moment.
Aries: What’s at the top of your agenda? Heck, what does your top ten look like? You’ve got a window of opportunity here. There’s little you can’t do, and less that you won’t if you can get yourself up on the right side of the bed. Take the initiative: it’s your turn to come up aces.
Taurus: Is it what you believe, or what you would like to make come true? Be your own best fairy godmother. You control the lines of supply to your own fulfillment. An army of one still travels on its stomach. Feed yourself to maximize your sense of health and well-being.
Gemini: In the dark? A single candle beats the heck out of stubbing your toe. Focus on one problem at a time, and the solutions will flow like Jell-o shots — they get easier and more fun as you go along. Eschew distractions and procrastination techniques — you’ll have what you need.
Cancer: You can grow the relationship you’ve got. It will take planning, patience and a kind of devotion born only from certainty. You can have all that and more, and the fulfillment you so richly deserve, but you have to give as good as you get — or better. Trust your judgment.
Leo: You’re determined to see things done right this time. You’re ready to make your day-to-day optimal. You’re going to need that support. You’re entitled to it. You’re laying the ground work for a future worth having built. Give it your best and you’ll find that Monday dawns clear
Virgo: What have you got to lose? You’ve been without that which sustains you for way too long. Release that inner sense of poverty and you’ll immediately be less deprived. Imagine the form you wish to create, then chip away all that’s extraneous. Toot your own horn loudly.
Libra: Is it time? How will you know if all you hear are the broken voices of the past shouting down the years into your inner ear? All that baggage has to go into storage if you’re going to be effective in your next phase of development. You don’t have to be so serious on Saturday.
Scorpio: Life rolls on like a river. You’re more sustained by the connections made in your youth than you can properly assess. Give yourself the space to be a beginner at your newest enterprise. You’ll develop skillful execution; the learning curve is more forgiving than you are.
Sagittarius: What are you planning? You’ve got a lot of irons in the fire, but are there too many for any one of them to get hot enough to make it through the forging process? Can you begin to thin down the herd and locate the grace to commit yourself? Decide after Tuesday.
Capricorn: How far can you go and still come back? How much can you take on without crumpling under the strain? Must it always be about the endurance for you? Not really, but you’re the only one who can cut yourself the slack you need but don’t believe in. Take it easy.
Aquarius: Your dreams call you to become the architect of your own immediate future. Are you ready to take on the edifice of your soul? You can renovate, build on the old foundations, extend into new wings of capability and participation. Or you can just let it stand and age as is.
Pisces: There’s a dance of obligation before you. You’re not a free person yet. But the bond is light, and the debt is voluntary. Pay your social circle out in full with interest. The weekend brings the hard proof you’ve waited on. Get ready to make your move with no reservations.
Heavenly Round-Up: Feeling like the long, dark tea-time of the soul? The early autumn blues got you counting angels dancing on the head of a pin? Sometimes god is in the details; sometimes the devil makes you do it. Learn to tell the difference this cycle and save yourself some trouble down the road. Don’t jump to conclusions about a two-faced acquaintance over the weekend. You didn’t hear the beginning or the end, only the middle. Save your judgment for Paris.
Aries: If you walk the talk, will you be able to chew gum at the same time? Don’t let the urge for authenticity tie you up in multi-tasking knots. If you were meant to be a juggler, you’d work at the circus. Strategize time use, call in favors, let your fingers do the walking. Recline.
Taurus: Make demands. Make demands of your heart to give the best you can to the partner you have. Make demands of your soul to release your creative drive in ways both productive and satisfying. Make demands of your adrenal gland, so that you can take risks and cat naps.
Gemini: Will you let yourself be grounded by that tired old rap? It’s not your trip; you don’t have to go there. Equally, you’ll have to be scrupulous in your conduct if you want to keep your reputation intact whilst you dodge the crap that’s hitting the fan on Monday. Tap dance.
Cancer: If you could choose when to turn the worm, would you know that optimal moment from every other? Let fate do its own work. All you have to do is survive and become in an environment that’s neither static nor ineluctable. Call ’em like you see ’em on Tuesday.
Leo: You get opportunities like this infrequently enough that you should consider it seriously. It could change everything, but you’ve been looking for something to fulfill you differently. For this shot at the brass ring, you’ll want to stay clear-eyed and focused. Maintain poise.
Virgo: It all comes down to you, and the mood in which you’re caught. You might promise to be good, but your biochemistry writes its own rules when you’re not 100 percent attentive. Ask not what your body can do for you; ask what you can do for your body. Clear?
Libra: If time were like a snail’s shell, sealed into discreet eras, would we be more or less likely to suffer dÃ©ja vu, and what would that mean for the human creative process? Sometimes only the extremes of hypothetical situations release your inner visions. Recalibrate.
Scorpio: Give yourself permission to count on others to close the gap between reality and desire. Give yourself permission to let perfection fall away in favor of ethical expediency. Give yourself permission to lighten up and enjoy yourself with a Virgo. Give permission to quit.
Sagittarius: If at first you don’t succeed, you don’t have to repeat the initial mistake until you give up in disgust. Use that much vaunted flexibility to find an unorthodox solution, a new inroad, a separate fix. You can call on the power of your flakiest Piscean crony: it can work.
Capricorn: They may not know you deep down, but how long has it been since you poked around in the corners of your own soul anyway? Take a risk and get to know yourself all over again, from the inside out. You may be surprised at who you’ve grown to be. Share with Aries.
Aquarius: If you could do anything you wanted, would you care if others got a little trampled in the process? Of course you would. And though you don’t have full-spectrum latitude, you do have the right ethical matter in place to see that the little guy doesn’t get squished. Play.
Pisces: You’re entranced by the forest. The individual trees contribute so much, but the overall value is beyond description. When you get back from your reverie, you’ll want to find a way to apply it to your home life, ASAP. Make sure that the sum is greater than the parts.
Heavenly Round-Up: You’re gathering the information that’s matured under your peripatetic attentions. You’re wondering whether you suffer from data overload, or if you’ll someday find a use for all those ones and zeroes. You’re on the brink of diving across the information super-highway in order to find a place more personal, and more personalized, than you’ve ever known before. Can you use the lessons of the week prior to set the compass by which you might sail to your happily-ever after?
Aries: If you could see as far as you can envision, you’d be watching your own back. Reel in the fantasies. It’s time to find where the brass tacks are, and decide if they need replacing, or just ditching altogether. You’ll change your mind when you least expect it. Go with the soul.
Taurus: Have you ever found yourself dreaming that you were awake, only to then awaken? There’s a call to higher consciousness for you that might have that self-same effect. Can you prepare yourself to be startled with reality, or would that spoil the surprise. Reassess Monday.
Gemini: If you weren’t limited by your mortal frame, you could merge with the forever and be more than anyone before. In the meantime, you have to live in the shell you’ve got. You may as well decorate and decide on a theme, or even a color scheme. Go with what’s intense.
Cancer: Where there’s smoke there’s fire. That’s okay, you like marshmallows. If you’re in a smoky situation, it will go well for you if you adopt an optimistic construction on the activities and characters of all concerned. Your innocence might be contagious. Go for a walk.
Leo: You can’t help but count on your friends when you’re as much at sea as you are. What can they do for you that you feel comfortable asking? What debts will you incur to see your desires made manifest? What personal capital will you use to act as collateral? Stay alert.
Virgo: If it were simple, your work would not engage you. If you knew it all, you’d move on to something more challenging. If you could find your heart to be one-dimensional, you wouldn’t have those questions about fate and love — nor appreciate the necessary answers.
Libra: If you could only walk the talk with as much assurance as you feel when your lips are moving. It’s easy to get distracted searching for the middle ground. Is there a place and a time for extremes? Is this it? Your spirit yearns for a different kind of fulfillment. Write a book.
Scorpio: It’s not so much sense and sensibility as it is lack of sense and sensitivity that’s all around you. Don’t give in to the desire to control the general flow. You have other, better fish to fry, and since you can’t get them caught alone you’ll be sharing the proceeds with the help
Sagittarius: You weren’t careful what you wished for, right? That would be one way to look at the recent outcomes. You didn’t look both ways before you crossed the line dividing what had been from what will be. Don’t give in to a fear of the unfamiliar. Learn the local customs.
Capricorn: Dance with the devil much? Give in to hubris much? Oh no, not you. You’re calm and collected and practical. Take out your wild streak at home with radical cleaning, clearing and possible freshening of the dÃ©cor. When you get past the urge to splurge, shop a little.
Aquarius: Don’t you remember what it is that you had thought would make you so very happy? Because it’s with you now, though perhaps you’ve forgotten how to recognize your desired outcomes in the long interval since their inception. Give in to the impulse to joy.
Pisces: It’s nobody’s fault. Not even yours. There’s lots you could assume, or take blame for, but it’s not your cross to bear. Let it all go. Let your preconceptions rest a while. Open your self to the feeling of being engaged without being enmeshed. Shut out your inner parent.
Heavenly Round-Up: Things are not as they appear, but you can’t blame your perceptions, or even the intentions of others. This is one of those times where a sea change may do every one a world of good. Reformulate expectations, reframe contexts, redirect efforts. The shift will bring you greater scope for your potential and greater breadth of opportunity in the months to come. Once you’ve loosened up and got your face adjusted, you’ll have plenty of time to get on out there and flirt.
Aries: You’re distanced from your objective, as though you viewed it from underwater. You can let matters lie, and find yourself waking to an unexpected success, or you can fight this and bring matters to a fore in full consciousness. Both choices have merit. Check with Virgo.
Taurus: You don’t know what to expect from your community of faith, but there’s more to the picture than meets the eye. Go sleuthing at your own risk, as you’re likely to uncover all sorts of skeletons in all the wrong closets, without finding what you were looking for. Wear cotton.
Gemini: Inside your present confusion is a successful, self-directed, achievement-oriented individual, ambivalent about committing to doing and being so much more. You don’t have to go all the way there. You could dip your toes in a brave new world with a file re-organization.
Cancer: You’re walking tall. You’re following through. You’re not in full possession of all the necessary data. Don’t hold yourself accountable for what no one could help. Don’t forget to get with the program before you write off your present effort. Listen to Aquarius.
Leo: You want to share nicely. You want to make your partner happy whilst increasing your own satisfaction with life on the meta and real-time levels alike. But you may be facing a case of the fisherman’s wife who wouldn’t rest ’til she was pope. Curb your passions and ambitions
Virgo: Will you let go and give one hundred and ten percent? Yes, that’s not a real number, but it’s symbologically powerful — as you must be to gather others to your way of getting things done. Don’t hold back. Don’t ease up. Don’t drop the ball before you’re in the end zone
Libra: You’ve been there and back again, but there’s really no place like home; and you’re happy to say it. Having got things as you like them to be, would you consider taking on the effort of imagination in redesigning and upgrading so that you’re in the presence of superlatives?
Scorpio: It’s wonderful to dream of the unbounded depths which you long to share with some sensitive other. But does that figment ever take form? You might get luckier than you’re capable of recognizing, if you can only stay open to the possibilities in the most unlikely place.
Sagittarius: You’re a bit sensitive after procrastinating and blowing off so much in favor of absolutely nothing in particular. Don’t be defensive; you were incubating your next glorious, unbelievable self-transformation. But now is the time to cease delaying. Do it.
Capricorn: What you’ve heard cannot compare with the reality. Your new environment has much to teach you about relaxing your boundaries and shifting your outcomes so that they accord more gracefully with what nature has in mind. Take time to question a Pisces Friday.
Aquarius: Who do you love and what do you do with the energy that it provides? The exchange would be fairer if you were a teensy bit more expressive of your own devotion and delight. Don’t be afraid to look the fool. There’s winsomeness in innocent sincerity. Cavort.
Pisces: Don’t make up your mind. Don’t change your mind. Don’t abandon your decision. Just let things rest a little longer. There’s something alchemical fermenting in the athanor of your soul. Before it turns to vinegar and putrefaction is a window of transubstantiation of ideals.
