Heavenly Round-Up: It's hard to remain uncritical when you can't see the forest for the trees. Yes, God is in the details. But wouldn't it be fun to see how they all connect and make up for each other's deficiencies? More fun than picking at nits, at least. Relax. Take a long, scented bath whilst thumbing through your favorite tunes. Have another cup of green tea. Eat fruit fresh from the orchard. It's difficult to be picky with sun-warmed juices running down your chin.

Aries: You could over-simplify and go charging off over the hill. But you might have done better to reconnoiter and establish the strength and firepower of whatever it is you have to fight next. Is immediate action more important than strategic planning? Wear red Saturday.

Taurus: Quit fussing. Your hair looks great. Your clothes are well-coordinated. Your manners are all that they should be for this. You're prepared enough and charming enough and it will all work out. But you might relax a bit so that your personal charisma does the heavy lifting.

Gemini: You're standing tall in your boots and you're not afraid of what comes next-so long as you're not hooked up to a lie detector, that story will work like gangbusters. If you need to dose up your confidence, use your words to convey your worries. Your cronies will fix you.

Cancer: This isn't the beginning of the end; this is the end of the beginning. You understand your available resources and how to make the best use of them. You've grasped the lay of the land. You could use a focus to maximize your productivity. Could you take a night class?

Leo: Stand and deliver. You've got the goods and they're not getting any fresher. Put out or shut up was never truer than now. But you have to decide to get fully involved and fully committed to make this work. Can you set aside your doubts and pride to get to clear here?

Virgo: Walking the talk will take you further than you'd ever imagined. Setting a good example might make you a bed of laurels upon which you could rest for an eternity. But the temptation to give in and hand out the rough side of your tongue is strong. Use the force.

Libra: Seemly or not, the world is as it is. There's not much room for Mr. Nice Guy to coast in this paradigmatic struggle. You'll have to pick a side and play to win. Happily, your charm is near its biorhythmic peak all week long. You can have it if you can give it warm fuzzies. Go.

Scorpio: Is it a dance? Is it the circling of two warriors in hand-to-hand combat? Is it a prelude to sex? Aren't most things for you? Maybe, and maybe not. You'll shape your dreams of peace with the help of your community. You'll find fulfillment in the last place you look.

Sagittarius: Constant vigilance is the price of freedom. It may be a price you'd pay. It may be that you don't like the strings attached. But what alternatives have you still got? Inventory. Be thorough. Itemize strengths and weaknesses. Do the best you can with what you have.

Capricorn: It's like fiction, but it's real. It's like a dream, but you're awake. It's like a wish, but it comes from hard work and application. You have a five-year plan. You have the technology to get your inner tractor all geared up to put you on the road to prosperity. Paint.

Aquarius: Are you as innocent as the bird on a telephone wire? Are you as prescient as the baby in its stroller? Are you good for the out-of-the-ordinary and the wholly reframed perspective you will need to adapt to get from now to then? You could be with a little help.

Pisces: Peace on earth begins at home. You can go 60 percent of the way to the middle, but you could go further. Would you become resentful if you did? Would you be a doormat if you did? What are the options? Consider your ties and your freedoms as you make a decision.
