Heavenly Round Up: Change is coming. It’s coming from unexpected angles. It’s coming from unforeseen developments. It’s coming from application, strategic reasoning, discerning pressure and lust for success. Go with the zeitgeist. Go with the flow. Buck the trend and go with the intuitive solution. You already have the necessary tools, but you’ll have to take the time to recognize them. Like Dorothy’s ruby slippers, the answer is closer than you realize. Ask your cronies to provide insight, input and intelligence. Face Sunday with a smile.

Aries: You can conquer any task. You can obliterate any obstacle. You can overcome any opposition. But what can you do when the fifth column activity is coming from within you? Free yourself of the inner criticism endlessly repeating inside you. Freshen your outlook on Tuesday.

Taurus: Your get up and go may have got up and went; but that was then and this is now. Put an end to the free pass you handed yourself at the beginning of the summer. There’s so much you can do and take advantage of if you will only be bothered to learn. Re-fuel.

Gemini: Now is the time to leap into the fray. Now is the time to take sides. Now is the time to act the great partisan and stand up to be counted. You were built for the conflict to come, and you can make a name for yourself if you can only find a position to which you can commit.

Cancer: Destiny and fate are easy words. They take the burden off the individual and put it on the ineffable. If you would like to have more say-so, more control, then you’ll have to take the wheel and provide more concrete direction to the effort at hand. Use the left and the right.

Leo: This is the cloud that will reveal sparkling daylight. This is the fog that will lift on a perfect morning. This is the gloom that will clear with a fresh breeze. Get lots of rest, take your vitamins and exercise, reconnect with your social circle. Take advantage of the times.

Virgo: Nowhere is it written that you’ve been doomed to mediocrity. Nowhere is it stated that you can’t have any fun. Nowhere is it decreed that you don’t get to do what you like as you wish. So stop thinking of reasons to hold yourself back and start thinking of what to do now.

Libra: You’re talking and you can’t shut up. It’s not a bad thing. It’s just a fact. Try to focus and filter the stream of words flowing through you. Try to channel your urge to communicate. Try to finish the sentence you start and all will go well for you. Wear blue for good luck.

Scorpio: You’re no better than you ought to be; and you don’t aspire to a different moral status. You’re ambitious; but you haven’t given a shape to your desires. You’re fired up; however you haven’t determined a direction. Sit down and work out the details. You’ll go far.

Sagittarius: Once upon a time, you dreamed you could fly. Once upon a time, you dreamed you would live happily ever after. Once upon a time, you dreamed you found a cache of treasure. Now make your dreams come true using imagination and hard, hard work.

Capricorn: You’ve been plodding along, trying to understand when your expectations and reality parted ways to leave you with the sense of not being on the right track, headed in the right direction, with the right motivation. Stop and recalibrate your sense of self. Be thorough.

Aquarius: It’s not you. It’s the world. But you might be the butterfly in the Amazon who brings on the wet season in the Ganges' river valley. Consequently, you may wish to target your behaviors in such a way that they promote the changes you want and the attitudes necessary.

Pisces: It’s good to want. It’s good to envision. It’s good to feel the world ebbing and flowing around you like the ocean on the sands of the beach. It’s good to participate in the process. Will you be a pebble on the shore? A fish in the tidal pool? The wave itself? Reflect.
