Heavenly Round-Up: Feeling all hung up and conflicted? Not able to settle in to those horns on the dilemma? You may feel more enervated than chilled out, but you could get there from here. For one thing, the conflict is both external and transient. For another thing, it’s largely composed of a common semantic misunderstanding. Pull your fingers out of your ears and you’ll hear what I’m saying a little more clearly. You should dance on Friday, and clean as you go through the weekend. Wear gold for fortune.
Aries: If you look over your shoulder everywhere you go, you’re going to tumble down the very rabbit hole you’d been hoping to avoid, Alice! Now is the time to cut through the noise of your habits and preconceptions. Give meditation a chance. You might like the still, small voice.
Taurus: Once upon a time, you were plagued with impossible tasks and worse deadlines. Nowadays, you continue to act as though you’re still under that sentence. Close your eyes. Count to 10. Promise yourself you’ll look with a fresh perspective at everything around you. Ask twice.
Gemini: Don’t believe everything you hear – not even when it’s about you. You’ll be the subject of gossip, and you may even be the cause and provoker of its run. Still, you know the truth and it will set you free whenever you’re ready to drop those chains and go about your business.
Cancer: Exercise is more than a state of mind. You need to balance the desires of your body with the limitations of time and available resources. You’d do well to take more factors into consideration rather than fewer as you approach your final decision. Sleep in Sunday.
Leo: Don’t take the ball and run with it this time. You want to pitch that sucker across the field to someone better situated to position the play optimally. Really. This isn’t your limelight, not this one time. Otherwise, take time to bask in the sun and build up your immune system.
Virgo: With or without you, the ship is setting sail. You don’t have to be on it, but you do have to have a good reason for refusing the adventure. Cleanse yourself of regret and recriminations with a self-indulgent spa day. If you do so at home, keep the mudpack out of the drains.
Libra: You’ve been to the mountaintop, and it was windy. You’ve been to the depths, and they were cold. You’ve been to the well so often you’ve worn a path, but your thirst wasn’t quenched. Is it time to make a change? Is it time to recalibrate and make a new beginning?
Scorpio: Was it anybody’s fault, or are you just hanging on to your excuses? Was it worth the hassle, or would you play it differently if you had that time to do over? Don’t brood over these questions, mull them over and get them out of your system once and for all. Wear dark red.
Sagittarius: You’re not really a bank. With the way people are borrowing your energy, you ought to give a thought to what you’d like back as interest when the time comes. You can’t keep on draining yourself forever. Even you have limits. Supplement with vitamins and extra yoga.
Capricorn: There’s a hole in your life. You’ve had it for a while. You’ve ignored it for a while. You’ve even tried hiding it. Could you make friends with the hole? Could you find out what it wants? Could you negotiate for some possible price? Could you reconcile the impossible? Try Monday.
Aquarius: If it were easy, you wouldn’t want it anyway. This has always been true. Instead, you prefer what comes naturally at a great cost. Now is a good time to take an internal survey and see what kind of progress you’re making. Reason through the results carefully.
Pisces: You are as you are, and that’s all you are. Yet there’s still more to you than meets the eye. Is it time to take root and grow more deeply into your current life? Is it time to take flight and find a fresh means of bringing yourself whole into the future? Reflect generously.
Heavenly Round-Up: You’re looking at integrating what you’ve already learned with what you hope to accomplish if you can only survive the next big pile of business coming down the pike at full tilt. You’ll find your good intentions run headlong into obstacles, which look larger from a distance than they are up close. Shelve your dread and deal with your demons – one at a time. Don’t cave in to outside pressures. You need to get going, but you’d do well if you did so at your own pace.
Aries: This is the time, and this is the place. You’re charged up, ready to meet new people and try fresh activities. Would you consider taking a deep breath and finishing all the little projects you already have in play before you ride off to your next adventure? Meditate.
Taurus: You can’t do it anymore, and you’re not satisfied. This much is true. Still, you may find you have a different perspective if you can talk out your concerns and your choices with a trusted crony. Don’t be hasty in your efforts to clear a path to your preferred life.
Gemini: You’re talking and you can’t be discreet. You’re talking, even in your sleep. You’re talking and you’re not even making a lot of sense. Do you have the time and space to drop back and calm down? Do you have the focus to reflect and observe? Take a yoga class.
Cancer: You’re not as far along as you’d hoped you could be. You’re not as engaged in the process as you’d anticipated. You’re even burnt out and becoming a little bitter. You have justice on your side, but you’d get a lot further if you could also employ mercy Sunday.
Leo: You have a crossroads before you, and if you could depersonalize the options, you might have a better shot at making the best of all possible decisions. Try to stand outside yourself. Try to become neutral. If you were a bird, what kind of bird would you be?
Virgo: Will you walk the same road because it’s what you’re used to? Will you follow the herd because you don’t have a better idea? Will you let yourself be swept along by the current of your own life? Or would you be better served by making real choices? Reflect.
Libra: Now, more than ever, you find yourself wondering if your life would be completely different if you’d chosen the other way that time. In your darkest moods, you wonder if it would have been different at all. Cheer up, you have some fresh alternatives in play.
Scorpio: Before you begin sitting shivah for your hopes, you may want to check and see that they’re really, really dead. In fact, you’d be wise to assume they aren’t and proceed from there. You’re enough in love with the drama to be in danger of losing the reality.
Sagittarius: When was the last time you were happy as a clam? Don’t worry, you’re not likely to be so joyous just this minute. But you do have the choice of clearing the way to make future happiness an ongoing truth. Don’t give up. Get better and get on with life.
Capricorn: You’re under the gun, and the damned burden weighs a ton. While you didn’t know what the effort would entail when you got started, you’re neither naive nor a fraidy-cat. So gird up your spiritual loins and get back on that horse. Enjoy the view from up there.
Aquarius: You’re not the only one who’s been frustrated by the recent shift. You’re not the only one who’s found life to be a chore lately. You’re not the only one to look in the mirror and wish to see another life reflected. Change starts today. Change starts with you.
Pisces: Go for it. The times are weird, and they’re not getting less so anytime soon. If you’ve wanted to head out the distance on that crazy limb of the tree, this is definitely the time to go the distance there. You’ll find you have better company by Friday night. Enjoy!
Heavenly Round-Up: When your dreams are the best part of your life, does this mean your waking life is unsatisfactory, or does it mean you have such a rich inner life your ”real” life can’t compete? Try to close the gap between what you most want and how you now live. You can’t aim too high, if you’re going to shoot so far—it’s a point of trajectory and arc. Ignore the nay-sayers and get on with becoming the best of all possible yous. Wear purple for significance.
Aries: You are as you were, but there’s still a thing which has shifted, even changed irrevocably. What will you do with your newfound self? Where will you showcase your awesome talents and amazing abilities? Who will appreciate you to the top of your bent?
Taurus: You wake in a sweat. Yeah, it’s hot out. But really, it might have been that last fragment of your dream floating across the boundaries between waking and sleeping. Break down the walls holding back your unconscious. Let your life speak in tongues.
Gemini: You’re a rocket. An angel. An immortal being born of fire and desire. If you were (and you are), how would you employ your nearly superhuman powers? What causes would work toward? What population would save for preference? Really? Get busy!
Cancer: You’re walking the walk. You’re walking the line. You’re walking the razor’s edge, even. And you’re walking tall. It’s good to be right. It’s great to be certain. What would you find if you went back and examined the facts of the matter? Feel your way forward.
Leo: Once upon a destiny, you found yourself in uncharted regions of fire and shadow. Will you cower in the darkness, cool but trapped? Will you bravely face the flames and risk getting scorched by your actions? There are no easy answers, but there is a way through.
Virgo: You’ve been in a rut. You’ve been the victim of your own reality. You’ve been defining yourself using an outdated paradigm. Is this the best you can do for yourself? Would it be worth the effort to shed the shell you’ve outgrown and make a new one? Choose!
Libra: The constant beating of your heart is like the waves upon the shore. There’s an underlying message in the very rhythms of nature—even the nature inside you. Find that rhythm and follow the thread of the message to a place deep within your heart.
Scorpio: Persistence and consistency are virtues. Sometimes, they’re chains which end by holding you back. Will you let go of your commitment to the path on which you’ve set yourself. If you lift your eyes, you may find you have a different perspective.
Sagittarius: You have the world in the palm of your hand. But it’s not what you want. You have the answers to the questions which plague the philosophers, but you don’t care. You have more than enough of what it takes. Man up and make the most of your situation!
Capricorn: Look with new eyes at your existing condition of existence. You have some inventorying to do. You have some valuing to undertake. You have some cost-benefit analyses to complete. You may be surprised at what you find when your homework’s done.
Aquarius: It’s not for you, the whole spinning universe. At least, not you alone. Take the time to recognize all the different people, places and things which are necessary to make your perceptions as round as the Earth. Find a way to include a broad point of view.
Pisces: You’ll be tempted to sleep in. You’ll be tempted to go to bed early. You’ll be tempted to nap at your desk. Anything to keep the soft-focus happiness in the forefront, and all other concerns to the rear. Face reality, and you’ll find you’re readier than ever.
