Heavenly Round Up: It’s a party! It’s a revolution! It’s a drive to reform life as we know it! It’s all that and more — it’s your daily existence. The pace is fast and furious. The message is ”adapt or fall behind.” The outcome is so uncertain as to be precarious. Your application to the matter at hand could be the tiny pebble that precipitates an avalanche. Your concern for the final product could be the mental push necessary to make the whole thing fly. You have the chops — show them off.
Aries: Everything can change in the blink of an eye. Everything can be completely different from here on out. Everything can still surprise you and show up with a bow on your doorstep and you may not even recognize what you’ve wished for in its delivered form. Recalibrate.
Taurus: Time and tide tug at you like toddlers needing an adult diversion. Will you heed the hint and take more of yourself to task for not being in the flow of the ineffable? It’s a subtle mental shift that changes everything it regards on the physical plane. Test drive it on Monday.
Gemini: You’re as scattered and overwhelmed as ever by the impending holiday season. And the rush has started early this year. Take a deep breath. Take several. Practice breathing, yoga, mediation, anything you can get your hands on to calm your innards down. Leave early.
Cancer: Is it time to walk the talk? Is it time to lead by example? Is it time to put up or shut up? Are these artificial deadlines you’ve imposed on yourself so that you can get the job done and get on to the next important, life-altering emotional cycle? Keep up the useful deception.
Leo: You’re trapped in a prism of love, focusing and diffusing all that it encounters in a wildly unexpected way. Can you find your way out of this fun-house of romance? Do you want to? Even under the best of circumstances, it’s good to have an exit strategy. Bring your partner.
Virgo: It’s not just you. There’s something a little squirrelly in the works, and it’s causing all kinds of anomalous behavior — both in inanimate objects and people too. This condition isn’t permanent, and the outcomes will surprise you with the benefits they shower around you.
Libra: You could rest on your laurels, but really, there’s so much you could be doing to turn that positive influence into a veritable river of good vibrations. Use the force, Luke! You’ll have them eating out of your hands in no time, and you’ll do it without fuss or trouble.
Scorpio: Don’t count on the kindness of strangers this cycle. You’ll meet all types. Some will be able to give you what you need to move on, some won’t want to, and some just won’t have the juice. Reach out where you can. Try not to over focus on your present quest.
Sagittarius: You didn’t know where you’d end up when you got started. You’ve been brave and noble and filled with all the best virtues. And you’re running out of steam. If you need to be badly behaved, take yourself off to the farthest corner of your awareness. Keep it secret.
Capricorn: Pounce on those stray loose ends with your inner kitten. It’s time you identified what’s preventing your ultimate progress and time you chose to do something about it or just to move on. You know what the pros and cons are; you’ve already made the list. Reconsider.
Aquarius: You’re as good as gold, and as sincere as a girl scout. You’ve got the motive and the means. Are you still not working on a campaign? It could be your own, you know. You’re more than ready to serve your community in ways that will deepen your understanding, love.
Pisces: What’s that you hear from afar? Is it the sound of your employment situation shifting with the global climate? In this time of apt metaphors, look around to see how their reality manifests in your daily life. You’ve survived too much to have to move only in straight lines.
Heavenly Round Up: You have options to go with your issues. You have choices to round out your dilemmas. You have ethical consciousness to guide you when you’d rather be playing on the X-Box. Stay alive to the requirements of being a participant in the game of life. Hold yourself answerable for the quality of commitment you bring to the table this cycle. You’ll make interesting decisions, they’ll have long-ranging effects, and you’ll be more of a person for choosing the road you’re on.
Aries: You could still have been a contender. It’s not over ’til it’s over, and it’s definitely not over yet. Learn your lessons to the top of your bent. Give one hundred and ten percent. Let your dedication overcome petty objections. Let your light shine far and wide. Wear steel.
Taurus: It’s not a short trip from where you are to where you want to be, but you’ve got the chops to set the pace and see the finish on a timeline that leaves you feeling satisfied. Don’t allow yourself to be pressured by the itchy. You’ll be there at the right time and condition.
Gemini: All that you’ve seen and all that you’ve survived so far may not prepare you for what comes next. Your life is taking on depth and richness of texture that were unimaginable only a short time ago. So dive into the colors, flavors and conditions of all that is before you.
Cancer: You’re over focused on one or two inconsequentials in order not to have to take into account the big picture. Bring your focus up and out. Do yourself a favor and spend some time getting to know the relevant topographies. It’s simpler and more complex than imagined.
Leo: Sitting still has the great advantage of being easy on the hair and the skeletal system. At the same time, you’re hard to differentiate from the art around you when you’re that static. Choose to act. Choose to make a difference. Choose to stand up and be counted Wednesday.
Virgo: You’ve seen it all, and you’re not surprised by much these days. And yet, here comes something out of left field, and it’s headed straight for the wall. What are you going to do? Stay light on your feet. Keep your eyes on the ball. Listen for cues from the crowds. Go wild.
Libra: You could go as far as you’ve dreamed. You could see the vision made life. You could sleep in if you lose your other motivators. It may be time to review that which drives you, and see if it’s still current. If it is, dust it off and shine it over. If not, find a new reason to be.
Scorpio: It’s not like you can be surprised. So why are you standing there with your mouth hanging open? It’s late in the season for catching flies. Pick up your teeth and get on with creating a life to go with the wholly unexpected. How simple it can be to switch gears!
Sagittarius: It’s as big as it was, but not getting any bigger — thank goodness. You’re ready to take on the challenge and prove yourself more than equal to the accomplishment. You’ve got a good support team and enough information. What are you waiting for? Christmas is near.
Capricorn: Is it hype if it all turns out to be true and now? Is it all for show if it’s about the work, dedication and commitment for change? Is it easier to write it all off, since then you don’t have to get involved? Give meaningfully and you’ll see that there’s more to receive.
Aquarius: You could still be all that and a bag of chips. You’ve got what you came for, and you’re in no-wise ready to be pushed out the door. So hunker down for a long siege. Use your experience to make the time more useful, valuable and otherwise productive. Sing.
Pisces: Why can’t you have what you want, as you want it, on the timeline that best meets your perceived needs? Why can’t it be simple, for once? Because you’re better at waiting, knowing and understanding the limits of the ineffable. Use your perceptions to see the truth.
Heavenly Round Up: Is it darkest before the dawn? You’ll have a chance to see this principle in action all weekend, if you keep your senses alert and your heart clear. The seeds of unexpected things are being planted now. Use your superior grasp of intentional living to be sure that you’re on the path you’ll want to be treading lo these many moons. It’s not easy to go forward at this point, but it’s certainly less trouble than trying to go backwards. Use emotional gauges for rational changes and irrational risks.
Aries: You’ll want to be in touch with your inner-warrior for this round of living. But this is the calm, eastern version, not the rowdy western one. Meditate deeply, focus profoundly, act swiftly — but with due consideration. You’ll know the right choice when you see it. Don’t delay.
Taurus: You feel more than pretty on the inside, you feel confused. You’re doing all the right things. You’re saying the right things. But you’re not getting the play to which you have be-come accustomed. Let Nature take her course, however slow and meandering. Wear blue.
Gemini: It’s not a disaster if the actual outcome is all to the good. Treat the whole incident like a scene from a screwball comedy. Just keep your chin up, your gaze level and your heart pure of wicked purpose. Once you’re juggling these, you’ll find it easier to stay out of trouble.
Cancer: Decisions, decisions. Is it all about the decisions, or is it about the attitude you bring to making them? This pitch is yours to call, but there may be quite a bit riding on the out-come. Do yourself a favor and talk to an expert you trust. There are other answers altogether.
Leo: You can still change your mind. You can still phone home for a bail-out, if that’s what you would prefer. You could stand tall and take what you’ve got coming to you. It won’t take as long as you think, nor be as painful. Let go of the tired loop of negative reinforcement.
Virgo: Where else would you go, and what would you do there? It’s perfectly reasonable to want to get the heck out of Dodge from time to time, but it would behoove you to have a pretty good plan. There’s still lots right in front of you that’s better than salvageable. Look.
Libra: You’re as pretty as you want to be, but that and four bucks gets you a cup of coffee on the corner. What else can you bring to the table? Have you got good negotiating skills? Are you hot at research? Do you care about interpersonals? Diversify your personal portfolio soon.
Scorpio: It’s not a bird, a plane, or even a superhero. It’s your life hurtling towards you at inconceivable velocity. Don’t panic, it’s meant to find you and make of you all that you can be. Brace yourself, and open yourself at the same time. You’ll be surprised at the results.
Sagittarius: Look around. You’ll see the landscape of your heart has changed radically. You’ll see your inner life has taken on a tone and richness unfamiliar to you, even a year ago. Since this is what you want, throw yourself in with wholehearted abandon. There are more prizes.
Capricorn: Questions of community have been occupying a chunk of your conscious time out of their usual proportions. Is it time to get intentional? Is it time to get inclusive? Exclusive? You might do well to bounce some of your propositions off those sounding boards concerned.
Aquarius: It’s a matter of seeing with the inner eye, and recognizing what you’re viewing through that unusual filter. It could manifest as one of those things at the work place that start small and get heavy fast. Don’t panic. You did the best you could with what you had.
Pisces: Heaven can help you, but you don’t actually have to go to the top to get your issue resolved. If you can’t find your own allotment of common sense, you’ll have to borrow that of someone you trust. Get to the heart of the matter, and rest there before making a decision.
