- Featured Partners
Heavenly Round-Up: Don’t take your eye off the ball for a second. Everything is in a new kind of flux — chaos will resolve itself into perfection and it will be a miracle, of sorts. Give yourself credit for the giving you’ve been doing, but remember to rededicate yourself to those aspects of service that have come to mean the most to you. Now and again, there’s a good time to be impulsive and to act on that impulse. Now is that time.
Aries: You want what you want, and impulse control is at an all time low. Set yourself some intervening goals to prolong your anticipation of the inevitable victory. Refrain from retreating to your tent until it’s show time. There’s an answer buried in the dream you have on Sunday.
Taurus: Usually, you’re the last one to promote an innovation. But the time has come for you to take a stand for what you know will work better. You’ll lose some popularity, and you might even lose some sleep. But you’ll have fought the good fight, and you’ll like the outcome.
Gemini: The workplace is rank with seasonal shifts. It’s high tide and the raft is leaky, but you’re not going to be left behind. Test the wind, make your shirt into a sail and let your intuition guide you into the illumination promised by the sea of the collective unconscious.
Cancer: Are you vacillating senselessly? Or could this be a hyper-sensitive response to forces so subtle that they’re barely detectable at bodhisattva-grade levels of awareness? Trust your gut and whatever gives your viscera peace. If your soma is for you, who can be against you?
Leo: While there’s no scarcity of the resources in question, you’re having the devil’s own time resisting the urge to hoard and ration the commodity at hand. What is that about? You’re deserving — and so is everybody else. Release your leaden grip on the situation. Stand aside.
Virgo: This isn’t the partnership you were expecting. This isn’t the arrangement you felt would be fair. This is instead a revelation of a much broader vista, stretching away into the future with shining promise. Will you continue to cavil at your change of fortune? Reflect.
Libra: Use the limitations of the haiku form to give your heart the freedom to express itself. Use the limitations of your living situation to give your soul the freedom to find comfort where ever it may reside. Use your ability to strategize to find infinite potential solutions.
Scorpio: Is it vanity to reflect on your hard-earned triumphs? Is it hubris to admire your clever management of all that creative force? Is it time to get off that bed of laurels on which you’ve been resting and get on with the next stage in your ever-so fascinating life? Move it.
Sagittarius: When you’re hot, you’re hot. You’ve got ideas that are as well-grounded as they are innovative and do-able. Celebrate your gift. Share it with others. Get it down in writing. Run it by those wiser heads in your coterie. There’s no time like the present for doing it all.
Capricorn: You’re luckier than you can know. As ever, time will show you the harvest of this investment of your energy and focus. If you could put a structure to what you’re enjoying, you could bottle and sell it, no question. Take a page from the family album, and pioneer.
Aquarius: You’re gearing up to find an infinite number of possible ways to extend your resources. This could be huge. But as with Hamlet, the readiness is all. Don’t delay—or you’ll find that justice can only be got with the sword. Bring turmoil, but bring it with serenity.
Pisces: You’re going fishing with a lot of line. Whatever comes up from that deep a place won’t be what you expect by the time it reaches the surface. Have your inner eye ready to record the strange and wonderful specimen of variations on a natural theme. Remain open.
Heavenly Round-Up: You said the magic words and threw the beans over your shoulder. Now they’re sprouting: Large as life and twice as natural, they’re growing at hyper-tropical speed. Will you wait for the harvest, or climb along with the beanstalk? There’s something better than a singing harp at the end of this fairytale, but right action is sometimes counterintuitive. The end of the week presents an obstacle as insurmountable as it is illusory — try for a fresh perspective.
Aries: You’ve got your ears to the ground and you’re ready to track your chosen quarry to the ends of the earth if necessary. Could you present a warmer front to convince your prey of your harmless sincerity? Catch and release can be as stimulating as other forms of the sport.
Taurus: You went with the flow, and find yourself in uncharted rapids complicated by a wind shear. Ground yourself and take stock of your situation. You may find useful assistance that others before you abandoned. Tap your inner MacGyver to make the most of what you have.
Gemini: Sometimes it’s all about persistence. Sometimes it’s all about knowing when to feint in order to set up a dazzling attack. Sometimes it’s all about rolling with the changes and holding onto one’s center whilst leaving oneself vulnerable to shifts on multiple axes. Think.
Cancer: You’re possessed with a desire to live in the chosen ideal. You’re aware of your limitations, and perhaps overly sensitive to the financial exposure to which you’ve committed yourself. You’ve been lucky thus far. Will second guessing make the situation better or worse.
Leo: If you’d known it would be this difficult, you might not have stepped up to the plate so readily. If you’d known it would be this demanding, you might have started taking your vitamins sooner. If you knew how rewarding it will be, you would never look back. Reconsider.
Virgo: You get to choose how you phase in and out of indispensability. You’re the captain of your soul and the master of your fate. And others are waiting to see what you’ll decide. How will your garden grow? What will you plant and when? Are butterflies still free? Remember.
Libra: It’s a symphony of light and sound and color. You’re entranced by your own revelation. You’re dazzled by your vision. Where will you find the support team you need to make your dream come true? What enticements will you employ to gain the good-will of those you need.
Scorpio: A simple propensity for the dramatic can take on implications way past those to which even you are inured. Monitor your actions and words carefully. Weigh your responses soberly and keep the long-range in view, no matter how trivial the transaction. Wear red.
Sagittarius: You’ve walked the walk until your feet were bleeding. And that was after talking the talk until your jaw seized up. You’ve set the best example you know how. And yet you’ve got so much farther to go if you’re going to get where you’re going in time to enjoy it. Rev up.
Capricorn: It’s piffle if it’s unsubstantiated. Only when you’re presented with proof do you have to give it your serious attention. Structure your time carefully, there’re little hillocks and hiccups strewn through this cycle and any molehill could become a mountain if left unchecked.
Aquarius: You’ve heard the whispers. You’ve read the reports. You’ve been ready for this long while to act, and yet the time has not arrived. Delay a little longer, to your own advantage in the long run. Call on the old cronies to give you the moral support to hold back. Re-evaluate.
Pisces: Your dreams take on a fevered tinge. Your hopes become accelerated in this new climate of activity and manifestation. Let your aspirations walk the earth. It’s worth the risk you’ll take to get that close to your heart’s desire. Only the brave deserve the fair. Confer.
Heavenly Round-Up: It’s not the road to nowhere, but it’s definitely the scenic route. Don’t believe the locals who say you can’t get there from here. In fact, you can’t get there any other way. You’re in for a bumpy ride, but the journey is a goal in its own right. If you don’t recognize the ethical plateau you will have scaled before the weekend is over, you’ll know it when you finally catch sight of the breathtaking view. Look closely.
Aries: It may not be a good time to sign contracts, but this is an excellent part of the annual cycle for reviewing and revisiting various issues in your dead-letter pile. There’s a lot you might circle back to consider. The treasures are as varied as they are unexpected. Return.
Taurus: Sometimes the commencement of a fresh start can look horribly like one more step down the same tired path. Seeds planted in the darkness, and germinated in the depths of winter may take longer to sprout, but their sturdier for their fierce beginnings. Discriminate.
Gemini: You have the hope of a new perspective and wider access to data in order to resolve the nasty conundrum that’s been nagging you. Give yourself props for getting as far as you have with as little help as there’s been. The missing piece will manifest in a dream.
Cancer: It isn’t the riches of the earth that call to you. It’s the stability of security born of long-range planning. Yet man plans and God laughs, as the old saw runs. The sanctuary you seek can only be found within. Are you brave enough to risk that internal audit? Descend.
Leo: If you meet yourself coming and going, be sure to be encouraging — you’re all as busy as that. You’re more than willing to do what needs to be done to cement this new partnership you’re forming. Yet you’re concerned about outcomes to the point of distraction. Refocus.
Virgo: It isn’t who you know, but what you’re willing to do that counts this time around. You don’t have to lower your standards, but you may want to enlist the assistance of others in the same boat. Once you’re less isolated, you’ll be better able to troubleshoot. Call early Friday.
Libra: You’re infused with ideas that haven’t yet taken their final form. But you’re charged up and ready to go with the first likely concept that sticks to the wall when thrown. Do yourself a favor and do a little more homework before rushing willy-nilly to freedom. Wear blue Monday.
Scorpio: If you’re better than all that, then what were you doing lowering yourself to their level? Straighten up and fly right if you want to achieve the most satisfying resolution to the brouhaha. If you’re still stuck, ask your inner family of origin for advice regarding conduct.
Sagittarius: You’re ready to begin learning the thing you feel you were always meant to know. The subject is difficult, the matter complex and the time commitment is outrageous. Isn’t it lucky that you love a really good challenge? Sink your teeth into the fine points.
Capricorn: You’re more concerned than ever about the state of your resources. You can manage what there is, but you’d like for there to be more — as a margin of safety. Brainstorm on Saturday to come up with an effective new marketing initiative. You have the technology.
Aquarius: Simplicity and a lighter schedule may be the best route to re-centering you before spring bursts open again. Make the most of your enforced physical isolation by reaching out through technology. You’ve got the right idea by the end of the weekend. Now get going.
Pisces: Go to bed early and get up late. You’ll want to have as many dreams as possible, and be ready to practice remembering them as you wake. The information you find there will take you through the rag end of winter in better and more prosperous shape than you’d imagined.
Heavenly Round-Up: What you want may be so much more unboundaried than what you get that you may not recognize the superabundance with which you’ve been gifted. Count your blessings — you’ll be overwhelmed into a state of graceful acceptance and fulfillment. Alternatively, you could simply dwell on the unmanifest perfections lacking in your life and keep struggling with the burden of unrealized ideals. Obviously, there’s comfort and delight on the moral high-ground, as well as satisfaction and challenge.
Aries: If you let your life speak for you, what tale do your actions tell? Is that story congruent with your heroic self-image? Gear up for a fresh bout of derring-do. There are dragons in the hills and something toxic festers in the deep. Gird on your armor and get down to brass tacks.
Taurus: The more you learn about your partner, the more you can learn from your partner about yourself. Respect the reflection that your other provides, and you’ll find that you can see more clearly in every venue of your life. Is it time to tidy up your legal paperwork? Ask.
Gemini: Is it destiny in sheep’s clothing? You may get caught with your pants down, but you have nothing to blush for — you’re kind of cute like that. There’s a critical mass of chaos in the workplace. It leads to conclusions as personal as they are unexpected. February Surprise?
Cancer: You love having your depths plumbed. You love being spelunked as thoroughly as a cave system. You’re more in touch with yourself when others are more in touch with you. And how will you feed that which feeds you so unstintingly? Plan to make provision.
Leo: You’re standing in the shadow of your ancestral heritage, and suddenly your view of the present and how it leads into the future is completely refocused. Don’t make your final decision based on what effect you want on others. This time, it’s all about you. Call a Scorpio.
Virgo: You’re twirling through a landscape as beautiful as it is impossible. The earthquakes only seem to shake a deeper beauty from the flora and fauna of your inner perspective. Let the chaos and dissolution have their way with your great expectations. Distill deeper meaning.
Libra: There’s a persistent dampness at home. What are you going to do about the smells and the staining? Is it a physical, or an emotional manifestation? What strategies can you adopt to remedy this recurring issue? You have more control than you know or want. Believe.
Scorpio: If the smoking gun is in your hand, will you confess or plea it out or brazen it out in macho silence? You’re caught red-handed, and you don’t care enough to produce a reaction that others can understand. Explain yourself in short words, using long pauses and a smile.
Sagittarius: Are they your fondest dreams, or your worst nightmares that you’ve been seeing lately? Isn’t it funny how they can sometimes be hard to tell apart? Don’t give yourself a bigger case of the willies than you really need. There’s a solution as elegant as it is simple.
Capricorn: Give yourself a pat on the back. You’ve been a good team player and you’re going to be recognized for your extraordinary efforts by those who count most in your estimation. Dare to think outside your box. There’re changes in the wind that bode more good than ill.
Aquarius: Speak the truth as you know it by all means. Temper your message with a grain of compassion and you’ll find that your listeners throw roses and not rocks or rotten eggs. Coat your ideals with honey, and they’ll slide down a little more easily. Give yourself a break soon.
Pisces: Blessed are they who can survey with serenity the sites of disruption both internal and external. Don’t worry, it’s not callousness. It’s a form of actively aware compassion that calls one to solutions instead of tears. Be braver than you can ever remember being.
