Heavenly Round-Up: Is this a new beginning on old foundations? A reckoning for a bill you thought you'd already settled? A magical opportunity to receive what you've prayed for, with no ifs or ands or buts? It's all of these and more. There's a chance to look at your energy levels. Retrace your steps to find where you were playing to your strengths and where you let bravado cover your tracks. You have time to do this right, even if it isn't the first time anymore.

Aries: You want to be jolly, but instead you're roaring like a caged lion. You want to be generous, but you don't have any more to give. You want to be nice, but naughty is always so much more gratifying. Let your urges show you how to be warm and genuine both.

Taurus: You've been looking for a long time now. Suddenly, you make the breakthrough of your dreams. Only the matter points to having to work backward to get to where you can make the most of the developments. Patience is your best ally. A merry heart is your armor.

Gemini: Were you really trying your hardest? Or did you just put on a good show? It's time to pay the piper, and you've led everyone a merry dance so far. Will you empty your pockets to make good, or will you flim-flam someone else into footing the bill? Ask twice.

Cancer: You've been convinced of an essential error for sometime now. It can't be avoided forever. You have to face the music and deal with the fallout. But you have the skills you need to walk in through the front door and make good on your assertions. Call Saturday.

Leo: You fell for this one before. Now you have to pick yourself up and get on with making reality work for you without the magic bullet. You know what needs to be done, and as soon as you're feeling more the thing you'll jump right on it. Don't put it off past this Sunday.

Virgo: It's not your fault. You weren't there to make the decision. You weren't the one who propounded the theory. You weren't the one with the grand vision. But you're on clean-up detail nonetheless. Get out your broom and don't forget to whistle while you work.

Libra: These are the times that try one's soul. But they will also fill the darned thing to the brim with wonderful memories and sentimental enjoyment, if you can stop playing the Grinch long enough to look around. Focus on what is working and going right. Let the rest be.

Scorpio: It's not a necessity, but you're still willing to pay for it body and soul. Isn't it interesting when you come down with one of your obsessions? How will you get everyone else to buy in? How will you make the cost balance with the experience? Whom do you trust now?

Sagittarius: It's an ill wind that blows no good. And you may have the cobwebs and dust swept from your perspective in order that you bring your whole self to the table to do some real business. Are you good for your assertions? Can you convince anyone else? Jump.

Capricorn: You don't mind the larger workload. You don't mind the confusion of integrating the systems. You don't mind the collateral commitment. But you're getting darned tired of being taken for granted. You are not a garden gnome. You are a lively, loving participant!

Aquarius: It's floating up in the air, but you've spotted the balloon and you're taking bead on this potential rise in your future expectations. Don't let the thrill of the challenge distract you from the necessary minutiae of daily life. You have too much on your plate already.

Pisces: You didn't start it, but you hope no one cares if you stay and watch to see how it all turns out. You're more than ready to pitch in if anyone asks, but you feel shy about getting underfoot. Don't wait. You're wanted. They just can't figure out how to ask properly.
