Heavenly Round-Up: If you're cranky and you know it, clap your hands! Okay, it's out in the open and even if you admit it, the sky doesn't fall. Now it's time to go to the other end of the spectrum and start looking for your long, lost happy thought. Remember what there was to bring you joy, order and purpose? It's still there, though it may have undergone a sea change at the bottom of the toy box where you left it for so long. Trust your instincts on Saturday.

Aries: Are you caught between the devil and the deep blue sea? You're a strong swimmer - or you were and could be again. Don't give in to the worst case scenario: The situation isn't pretty, but you have choices if you're brave enough to go there. Work intelligently.

Taurus: You have more options than you're comfortable admitting. You have more resources than you can remember. You have more support than you know. With all that in play, this could be a good time to make your big move. Count your chickens before they hatch.

Gemini: Wherever you go, there you are. And you'll still have all your baggage with you if you don't get busy thinning down the herd. This is the perfect time to decide what you can pink slip from your pile of semi-processed emotional material. Call to confirm Monday.

Cancer: You have the technology in place. You have a long-term vision and a short-term plan. Have you got the motivation to go forward- Have you got the chutzpah to invite your nearest and dearest to join you in the next big thing on your horizon? Think inclusively.

Leo: You're still a contender. There are still more complications than a four-door comedy in the third act. There are still more surprises around the bend. There are still more factors in play than you can shake a stick at. Intelligent responses take you farther down the path.

Virgo: If it were already perfect, what would be the point in getting involved? You're the best person for the job because you can find the ideal in the midst of chaos and know how to turn your perception to the best advantage for all concerned. Give yourself a present Sunday.

Libra: You knew it would be a bear when you got started. You're beginning to see that the issues may be more obstinate than you'd guessed. Will you give up and walk away? Will you bite the bullet and stay to deal with the whole shebang? You know more than you think.

Scorpio: It's not a contest. You don't have to prove that this is the best of times, or the worst of times. You only have to do the best you can with what you have. Maybe you are at a low point, but maybe you also have more capabilities than you've been willing to tap.

Sagittarius: What's the first thing you can remember about the situation you're in right now- Did it start with a bang, or a whimper? It could end either way as well. And you're not as close to done as you might have been imagining. Ask an Aquarius for perspective.

Capricorn: It's not your fault. You didn't start it. But you're still on the detail to make it good and right. You still feel an obligation to put things away now that everybody's done with them. You still want a tidy, if not happy, ending. What will you wear on Saturday-

Aquarius: You can look back in anger or regret. You can wonder about the road less traveled. You can reminisce if that's all you've got left. But you could consider pulling your socks up and getting on with making the most of the rest of this challenging cycle.

Pisces: When did it get so constrictive? When did it begin to feel more like confinement and less like a warm enclosure? When did you realize you were trapped more than you were sheltered? You can change your conditions in a heartbeat. Do you want your freedom?
