Heavenly Round-Up: They do it with smoke and mirrors -- or that's what you hope to prove with all your extra efforts searching for the man behind the curtain you're supposed to be ignoring. What if these are real, if miniature, miracles? What if there is a safe and easy way out that anyone could use? What if all you had to do was open yourself to the myriad possibilities vectoring off into infinity all around you? It might be easier than you can suppose to achieve your heart's desire.

Aries: Look, and look well, but don't touch. There's some trouble associated with the matter, though it's no end fascinating and requires that your bravery be in abstaining and your courage in preventing others from doing the same stupid thing. Let a game give you direction.

Taurus: It's not the end of the world, but you can't understand how everything was simple right up to the point that it got hopelessly complicated. You have the patience to undo that which ought not to have been done. The question is, do you have the time? Wear periwinkle.

Gemini: You could go on forever, and will at the least provocation. Somehow, you know that you're in the rightŚeven though you haven't figured out how to prove it conclusively. If you decide to go for the compromise, you might be surprised at the augmentation of your status.

Cancer: Nothing's easy, though you were sure you were promised smooth sailing. But there's no weather witch who can control your interior climateŚnot even yourself. Give yourself to a hurricane season within. Live to find the assessing eye. Live to see what the storm brings.

Leo: You're walking tall, but you're not sure that anyone can see you from those odd vantage points. You're not losing an audience; you're gaining a fresh perspective on solitude. It comes in handy, because there isn't much more of that scarce commodity coming up for a while.

Virgo: What would you see if you lifted your eyes from the precarious load you're pushing in front of you everywhere that you go? What would happen if you abandoned the intent and went for the immeasurable freedoms just beyond the line of the horizon? Break for it Monday.

Libra: If you're all that sensible, you'll just keep your mouth shut and let the chips fall where they may. If you're all that smart, you'll leave it to others to figure out what happened whilst you stay productive and well out of the center of the fray. If not, batten down the hatches.

Scorpio: It's one of those time and tide things: you can't control it and you'll just have to wait for the favorable conditions your enterprise requires from the start. Since you're cooling your heels, exhibit some of that famous compassion and ease the suffering of those around you.

Sagittarius: It's more fun than you'd expected. It's more fun than you'll ever admit to anyone but your pillow. It's the kind of project that only a fiend like yourself can truly appreciate. Give your best and you'll have the satisfaction of watching success bloom before Christmas.

Capricorn: You can look both ways before you cross, but you might also shift your vantage point so that you can see oncoming on at least two of the three possible axes in play. If not, then let go of caution and go with streaming hair and eyes fully on the lap of intuition.

Aquarius: You're going to have to sing for this version of supper. You agreed to play, and now you're being held to playing by rules that others know better than you do yourself. It's not easy being the puppet instead of the puppet master. Don't run off with any jack asses.

Pisces: Find the good and you'll be the one leading the charge. It's not your usual position, but sometimes the natural order needs shaking up in order to reveal it's continual evolution and it's endless array of options. Share your optimism and give as good as you get on Friday.
