Heavenly Round-Up: There’s a brooding quality in the air. This is the calm before the other shoe drops, on both the micro and meta levels. You have lots of lost ground to recover. You have lots of fencing to mend. You have lots of fast talking and tap dancing to do to make good on all that might have been. Have you got the positional chops necessary to respond to reality? Are you committed to anything beyond getting your pound of flesh?
Aries: Watch out for the devil you know…. It would be all too easy to take this one for granted one too many times. Hold on to your lucky foot, hoof or sneaker. The game is afoot and you have what it takes to put together the string of clues and find the sneaky solution.
Taurus: You’re as stubborn as you want to be, but you have all good reason. Some processes can’t be hurried to anyone’s advantage. Let go of false deadlines. Ignore outside pressures. You’ll make the right choice in the stately array before you—but you won’t do it this week.
Gemini: You’re loaded for bear and raring to go. The weather works in your favor — consider it a solid returned from the Ineffable. Keep your karmic records sparkling fresh with kindnesses sprinkled like Baco-Bits across the broader texture of the salad of your days. Wear patterns.
Cancer: You’d be more likely to believe your eyes if things would only happen in a palette you could contextualize. It’s like waking up in color when you lay down in black and white. Don’t surrender, Dorothy. Your ruby slippers are good for more than styling. Find your inner use.
Leo: You and the lilies of the field could compete for how appealing, and how otherwise not really employed in the matters most at hand. Feeling like tits on a bull? Use your awareness of duality, redundancy and superfluity to deepen your compassion for your loved ones.
Virgo: You’ve got a map, water, a compass and good sense. You’ll do better than merely survive this round: you’re going to take your capabilities right to the top of their expression. This is timing, hard work and innovation all coming into ineluctable confluence right now.
Libra: Dance like you mean it: it might be the most important thing you do all year. There’s a rhythm in the universe, and if you can catch it you’ve got a wave under you that you could ride for years to come. Focus on the long view, but keep the foreground details in mind.
Scorpio: Seeing is sometimes believing. Sometimes it’s a challenge to explore, research and question. There’s so much we want to have be true that we know better than to go with the inputs of our sensory receptors. At the same time, remember what you see is what you get.
Sagittarius: You know the way from here to eternity. You’ve had some inkling of the journey etched in your central cortex for eons. Now you’re ready to take the first step. Now you’re on the brink of going farther with your potential than you’ve ever been before. Bring a binky.
Capricorn: You’ve walked on the wild side. You’ve raged like a lion in the desert. You’ve announced your presence with authority. With the whole world groveling at your usually more modest feet, what do you plan to do with all that power? Bring the force into balance.
Aquarius: Look, but do touch as well. It’s time for you to use a broader spectrum of your inborn tools to get the most information possible. Once you’ve built your data base, you’ll find you’re sitting in the catbird seat. Walk the talk like an old school cowboy on Saturday night.
Pisces: You’re back from an inner odyssey stretching from there to back again. You’ve seen the sights, and hope that you can download the images—since everything’s fuzzy in your memory. Send out for wisdom, but add a grain of salt to anything delivered promptly. Reflect.
Heavenly Round-Up: Is it forgiveness? Absolution? A fresh start? Whatever you call it, you’re in a position to reposition yourself. Now that you’ve won a chance to make good, what are you going to do? You can stay where you are, or you can venture forth: your absolute, unshakable faith in your protectedness will see you through the fires of hell and back again, if need be. Watch that you don’t tap your inner dramatist too deeply. It might just be a picnic.
Aries: You’re walking the walk, at long last (again?). You’re standing tall for what you believe in and you’re not looking for community approbation. You’re counting on the still, small voice within to let you know whether you’re on the right track or not. Use your inner ear to hear.
Taurus: It’s like a dance, but it’s the dance of life. You have the natural rhythm to catch on, catch up and join in. But it might be a lot of work, and you’ve been feeling overworked for a while now. Is it possible that toiling in your own field is more appealing than you knew?
Gemini: Have your savings been matching your targets? It might be time to get with the program and get on with building that lay-away future you’ve been promising yourself for ever so long. Gather information, consult experts, ask cronies, and go with your gut anyway.
Cancer: It’s no tip-toe through the tulips, but you want your home life to take on that idyllic sheen so characteristic of Golden Ages. Are you frustrated with the obstructions others create on your way to Shangri La? Are they the necessary shadows of your dreams?
Leo: It might be disappointing for you to discover that there’s a prize inside for everyone. You like feeling special. You like being singled out for the glory and approbation. You even deserve it. But there’s a reward out there for everyone. Share the joy in the greater good.
Virgo: How is it that you know these things ahead of time? It’s not a disaster like a tsunami; but it’s the sort of thing you’ll be glad later you had an inkling of. Until you get that certain call, you’ll have to go around playing Clark Kent to the hilt. Form a Superhero support group
Libra: You’re hearing all kinds of things in the ventilation systems. Don’t assume you’re going all Heathcliff. It might just be that you’re aware of subtle contacts with adjoining realities. Expand your definitions of the real and the possible. It’s not too late. Think.
Scorpio: Situational ethics call for you to appear to be on your best behavior. Your inclination is to raise unholy Hell. There are no right or wrong answers, only outcomes based on your choices. Allow chaos to change you in small ways, and you may not need to change in large.
Sagittarius: Don’t take that long walk, it’s a shorter pier than you can tell in all this mist of unreason and fog of preconception. Is it you that brought this on yourself? Is it the essential injustice of everything? No, it sure isn’t. In fact, this has win-win written all over it. Find.
Capricorn: You don’t need for it to be simple, clean and direct. It would certainly help, but you’re not so unrealistic as to suppose that there could be no other possible means of egress. You’ll do what you have to do, and be glad you’ve got the focus and the determination for it.
Aquarius: Call in favors. Call on your crew. It’s time to rally the gang and get everybody to buy in for all they’re worth. Be generous in your care of the persons of others, and there’s nothing you can’t ask of them that they wouldn’t give willingly. Consider all that charisma.
Pisces: You wouldn’t have guessed that this is how it would look when you got there. You wouldn’t have felt that you’d adapt so well and so smoothly. If every transition were this easy, you’d never stay put in your life path’s trajectory. Celebrate the earliest victories.
Heavenly Round-Up: Is it hot enough for you? No, not the external climate — the nature of the weather on your insides. You’ve been called to account, admitted your errors and you’re ready to get over it and get on with it. Will you get that chance? Will you have the richly deserved opportunity that represents a major break-through? Maybe. And maybe not. Maybe you’ll need to be ready to climb in through the window if the door isn’t still open. Wear crepe-soled shoes.
Aries: It’s not exactly what you thought they were talking about, but in a sense this is the Summer of Love. Once you get over the anomie endemic to your preconceptions, you might relax and enjoy all the sights and sounds of this rare occurrence. Call that crony on Sunday.
Taurus: You’ve carried water up the road and down the road to make sure that everything would be copasetic by now. Happily, you’ll be delighted to find that there was a source of running water over the ridge the whole time. Don’t regret your effort: You’ve got muscles.
Gemini: Something’s definitely fishy. You can’t lay your finger on it, and you can only see it from the corner of your eye if you’re focused on something else entirely. Let it be. It’s partly your active imagination. Partly it’s true. If you sit tight, you’ll know which is which Monday.
Cancer: You want to take that big step. You’re ready for the transition. Are you sure that your suit is airtight? Are you sure that you’ve got enough oxygen? What if you could breathe in what you think of as a vacuum? Is it worth taking the risk to find out? Go to the beach.
Leo: You’re torn between your Utopian vision and the gritty truth of the real-time version. Life isn’t usually as glorious as we like to paint it in the never-never. And some of the time, it’s our own fault for not doing a deep background check, or letting others do the grunt work.
Virgo: Your dreams are growing like the beanstalk in that fairytale. Will you dare to climb the possibilities to their best-case-scenario? You have the skills, even if you don’t have the belief system you’ll require to support you past your base camp to that castle in the air. Use rope.
Libra: You could have been a contender, and still are. Can you admit that you’re still in it, even if you don’t like how the odds have shifted? Your get-up-and-go is right where you left it. If you’d put it away properly, you wouldn’t be searching for your motivation every time.
Scorpio: Blessed are the peacemakers, but not if they should get themselves caught in the crossfire. You might be part of the rescue team going in to help out a buddy who’s way over-extended. Don’t forget that you’re not immune to the hazard: you’re only fresh for the fight.
Sagittarius: Is this the wrong time to let persistence be your watchword? Is this the right time to throw up your hands and walk away with your dignity intact, even if you’re life is more than a little frayed by the experience? Is it time to refocus and see the pony in the manure?
Capricorn: You’re not asking the impossible — it’s just going to be very, very difficult. But you’ve got the chops. And you may have the timing if you can hold off on your big push for another little while. Let the penny drop before you let the games begin. Learn more Friday.
Aquarius: You’re conflicted, but that’s not news. What’s news is that you see what your own contribution to the snarl-up may be. Once you can include yourself amongst the culpable, there’s every chance that you’ll find a solution that works well for everyone involved. Think.
Pisces: Is it a walk down memory lane, or is it dÃ©ja vu all over again? Get your Yogi Berra on and make with the bon mots for your own edification and the enlightenment of others. You might be surprised at what you already know, if you can allow yourself to admit it. Sweep.
