Heavenly Round-Up: The world is like an oyster: hard to get into but beguilingly enfolding once you're there. The world is like a cell phone with perfect reception -- but shouldn't some things go unsaid? The world is like an enormous street fair with something for everyone, and way too much of everything altogether. Revel in the excess. Roll in the private juiciness of the times. Stay basic, suffering babbling fools and compulsive networkers as gladly as you can. You'll either learn something or meet somebody. Or both.

Aries: Where's your pride? Where's your sense of self-worth? You have more choices than you can admit to yourself. You have more options than the trading floor in Chicago. You have a million possible exits and only one you. Stay for any reason, but know you don't have to.

Taurus: Yes, lots of little unexpected things keep draining off your energy, diverting you from your purpose and generally nitpicking you into a corner. Can you get a temporary assist? Can you call in the cavalry to John Wayne you through this rough patch? Send up a flare.

Gemini: You could go crazy from the over-stimulation, and you couldn't be more delighted by the prospect. There's so much to do, and see, and gossip about! Be careful who you share with -- not everyone hears such information innocently. Count your chickens post-nativity.

Cancer: You're all wound up, and you can't calm down. Oooo-kay. But you really owe it to yourself to take a deep breath and count your blessings. When you're done there, you might try another deep breath, and another. Fine. Now start planning for your shinier tomorrow.

Leo: It would be more fun if you didn't feel that frisson of guilt -- every, single time. Or would it? Maybe you need to reframe your point of view in order to get the most out of what's going on. It could be mere habit of perception that's holding you back now. Go with the flow Friday.

Virgo: Neither destiny nor any other determiner can hold you back. You're doing your part. You're meeting your obligations. You're staying on your scheduled track. It's the rest of the world that's ''gang agley.'' Would it not behoove you to take steps to adjust for reality? Try.

Libra: Count yourself amongst the enlightened, but don't let it go to your head. Most people are in the running for the next evolutionary step up most of the time. Now that you're placed with the elect, you could get on with making the world better for all and sundry. It's fun!

Scorpio: Let it go. Talk it out. Share more than you like to all over the place. Your network could save your soul. Trust everyone like they're your therapist. If the world doesn't have your best interests at heart, it won't matter much either way. Because it's not out to get you.

Sagittarius: You fall for it every time, and you're chagrined every time. It's not preventable; it's part of your undeniable charm. Don't expect your pride to stay intact. Don't expect others to sympathize with your loss of dignity. Enjoy an opportunity to clown around on Saturday.

Capricorn: It's not quite an actual transubstantiation, but it's nearly as good as. You'll find your deepest need is met by a means so unexpected that it might be thought of as your own, personal miracle. Improve your shot at fulfillment and pave the way with happy thoughts.

Aquarius: Demands at work absorb you now more than ever. Desire to get out and enjoy some of the seasonal amenities acts as a powerful distraction. Is there any possible compromise? Is there any solution that allows both sides of your life to function adequately?

Pisces: You've seen it all before, and it's made you jaded. But now you have a chance to show someone else the ropes. Since it's fresh for them, you might participate in their wonder and vicariously delight in their perfervid engagement. Let down your guard and your hair.
