Heavenly Round-Up: It's not the heat, it's the generally conductive atmosphere brought on by so much moisture. That's some of what's going on, of course. But wait! There's more! There's also an obstacle course for the egos involved. And the judging panel may not be issuing flak jackets to spectators. Think about choosing to be a participant. Since you can't be a by-stander, you may as well be in for a pound and not just a penny. Make your wishes known, clearly. Wear your heart on your sleeve.

Aries: Hindsight offers many advantages. But you've never been one to brood about what's past -- right? Okay, maybe you haven't had the easiest time letting go of some of those Pyrrhic victories at the Waterloo of your soul. Could now be the time to release and move on? Maybe.

Taurus: Persisting in the face of so many difficulties might be noble. It might also be bull-headed in the extreme. Give yourself the benefit of the doubt, and allow yourself to back away slowly from this latest mega-commitment. You can if you want, but you don't have to.

Gemini: You've seen it all, or so you thought until just recently. You're now almost ready to be amazed, let alone entertained. All the world can be your Vegas, but you'll have to morph your way into an attitude and ethos you can live with if you're going to be such a player.

Cancer: Once upon a time you were going to live happily ever after. But the princess turned into a witch and when you kissed him, the prince became a frog. That's okay. They'll get back to their original form as soon as you can remember the magic word. What a fun challenge!

Leo: It isn't about you, but you can't seem to get out of the way of the juggernaut headed in your direction. Funny how the wrong thing can highlight the right one so poignantly, isn't it? Give yourself permission to succeed, and give others the support they need to do the same.

Virgo: It's idyllic, but not peerless, in its perfection. Will you settle for a quick fix? Will you hold out for the perfect solution? Will you search endlessly through the world for one honest person? Set better boundaries at work to get more from your life at home. Ask a Capricorn.

Libra: Time plods on inexorably. It's amazing how something so regular can appear to be in total flux. Get in touch with your impatience. Acknowledge it. Then move on and move out. You have things to do and worlds to conquer and save. Don't wait too long for the ideal.

Scorpio: You've been there and done that. Now that you're retired and writing your memoirs, is there anything else you'd like to add to your pile of experiences before you lose your tone and your nerve? Make a choice you can live with and get on to the next important thing.

Sagittarius: Why can't it be simple? Are you cursed with a life of intensity and complexity? Is it a gift, but one you've failed to recognize? Can you be certain either way? Take the rough with the smooth, but focus on those things you can do--and don't delay. There's a timer!

Capricorn: Names may never hurt you, but it could take a lot of mental defensiveness to keep you in an intact position. You can do this. You can get through this. You can overcome, and you can look good doing it. And you can make any number of people eat their words to boot.

Aquarius: You used to believe in the best of all possible worlds. You used to trust in friendly aliens. Now you sleep with your orgone deflector on, and use your mirrored spectacles to see around corners. Precautions are all good. You'd need fewer if you could focus on your fears.

Pisces: Temptation wears a lot of disguises. You've made a few vows and even more field observations. You have a good idea of what to avoid and how. Will you be able to enlist the aid of your nearest and dearest to support you as you get through this difficult time intact?
