Heavenly Round Up: It's hard to believe that the days are already getting longer. It's hard to believe in the sun behind that ominous bank of clouds. It's hard to believe that the emotional fallout will eventually dissipate, leaving you stronger and more capable than ever. Go on ahead and gird up your loins. You'll be called on to put your shoulder to the grindstone and do your utmost to make those New Year's resolutions worth keeping. You have the will, the way and the support. Get going!

Aries: You've fallen behind. You're a little self-pitying. You're on the brink of a breakthrough, but you'll have to stick to it if you want to reap the benefits of all you've invested so far. Don't try to change horses in midstream; all you'll get is wet and cranky!

Taurus: You're so busy looking before you leap that you haven't taken into account how much is changing as you let time slip by. It's important to know the scenario and the footing. But it's also important to know when and how to act to make the most of the situation.

Gemini: With this new year, you might resolve to be more timely. You might resolve to be more constant. You might resolve to be more transparent. Then again, you might resolve to encourage others to mind their own business and leave you alone. Scrooge much?

Cancer: Not simple. Not easy. Not cheap. You want what you want and you're prepared to go out of your way (a long way out of your way) to get what you want. That said, you might consider other factors in the mix. What does your partner say? What about your friends?

Leo: Time and tide are pressing you in ways that would have been hard to believe even a year ago. But you're a new person, and these are new situations in new times. So bring a fresh perspective to your life adventure. Be prepared for things to get weirder and wilder both.

Virgo: You're serious as a heart attack, but that doesn't mean you don't have a great sense of humor. So why not demonstrate this faculty to others? Why not cut loose and let go and just enjoy for a few hours? No one's going to tell on you—not this time. Wear textured patterns.

Libra: You've got all the time in the world—in your fantasy life anyway. Since you don't, it behooves you to make the most of your planning and organization so that you can cram as much life into your allotted span as is humanly possible. What would you really like to do?

Scorpio: Anything worth doing is surely worth the challenge to your ingenuity, flexibility and sheer persistence. So quit whining and get on with getting on. Remember, you wouldn't want to play if the game were something anyone could win. Train harder and go farther each day.

Sagittarius: It's not a punishment. It's a call to which you must rise. It's an obstacle you must overcome. It's a karmic debt you'd rather pay than carry forward. Your choices are your own. The consequences may be unexpected, but they aren't more than you can manage.

Capricorn: You've been to the bottom of the sea looking for something precious. It might have been under your pillow the whole time, or out back in that bluebird's nest. Give yourself credit for trying so hard. Then sit down and workout how you might have done it easily.

Aquarius: Heaven helps those who help themselves, but that doesn't mean you should be waving your elbow across your neighbor's plate. Instead, help others as though they were yourself and you'll find you aren't mistaken in that assumption. Let your life speak out.

Pisces: You've dreamed of a different world for yourself. You've been there, but not when you're awake. What would it take for you to trust yourself to make these hopes real? How far out on a limb are you willing to go to be who you'd like best to be? Who will come with you?
