Heavenly Round-Up: What's the right thing to do when the old structures stop holding up and there's no strategy devised to replace them? What's the right process for navigating the demands of daily living amid the heart's longings and the mind's ideals? What will the final accounting for your performance reveal, all detours included? You're capable of using the foundation data to fertilize arrays of responsive tactics. You're ready to evaluate both baby and bathwater to get the most from your future.

Aries: It walks, talks and migrates like a duck -- but it might be a teal all the same. Let your preconceptions languish alone while you use Beginner's Mind to see through the artifice and polish to the heart of the matter. Get ready to fall for change.

Taurus: The weight of the world has been on your shoulders. You've structured every minute to make the most of your time and commitments. Now you're seeing the necessities float away like spent petals from a blossoming plum. Make a new path.

Gemini: It doesn't have to be your baby, but you like the idea of being smart enough and good enough that you could do this your way. If that's the route you choose, you may need some special equipment to get you from here to there. Shop wisely.

Cancer: Is it time? Are you ready to take the plunge? Were there other factors you waited on? Open your heart to the sensations of reassessment at the most fundamental levels. You can't run from the past, but you might be able to integrate it. Go there.

Leo: It's not your fault you're not on top of your game. It's not your fault you've been under the weather. It's not your fault everything takes longer than anyone can imagine. Even so, you're in the driver's seat and it's still your turn to pick up the pieces.

Virgo: You've been under interesting pressure. It's like what olives go through to become extra virgin, cold-pressed superstars. It's not too late to change your mind about what you want to harvest from your soul, and what you'd like to make of that product.

Libra: Have your dreams been pointing out your shortcomings? Have your ideals been reshaped by gravity and time? Have you wondered if you're ever going to get out from under the rock you're pushing uphill? There's a solution within reach. Reframe.

Scorpio: Destiny wears many faces. Yours speaks to others with a message of resolve and determination. You can do what needs doing, and you can make it contagious. Stop looking for the future in the eyes of others. Start using the mirror to give yourself hope.

Sagittarius: You don't have to cancel what you want. Dreams deferred may taste all the sweeter for having to be laid down -- think vintage Porto. This is no excuse for lollygagging or repining. Work harder to prepare for the good times to come. Wear wool.

Capricorn: You're in the spotlight, even though that's not your preference. You're the go-to person, though you'd rather hide in a tree. You're the ultimate authority while you question the very nature of the hierarchy. It can be reconciled, with diligence and warmth.

Aquarius: You ought to be focused and productive. You wish you had the big picture more firmly in hand. You desire only the best practices in every part of your day. But you're compromising and gerrymandering and trying too hard. Take a deep breath.

Pisces: It's the nature of the beast to pick on the pointless and to direct attention to what lies in the past. It's up to you to go forward with light and hope and joy in the face of minor dissatisfaction and myriad complaints about the laws of thermodynamics in application.
