Heavenly Round-Up: Neither heavy, nor light. Neither full, nor empty. Neither solid, nor gaseous. Like a riddle from the old legends, you're caught trying to keep to the middle path while balancing extremes on either side. This is no bad skill to develop. Remember to stay as grounded as possible, and you'll have less difficulty achieving your aims and accomplishing your ends. If push should come to shove, you'll want to take as much time as possible to sort out your best-case scenario. Delay until Sunday.

Aries: It was definitely heavier than it appeared. It was also more rare and precious than you could tell from first glance. Additionally, it carried more meaning than you could have anticipated. Revisit the choices that brought you this far. You can still pick up where you left off.

Taurus: You're not the biggest gorilla in the movie theater, though you are awfully special. Consequently, though you can't sit anywhere you like, you could form a coalition of more discerning patrons and have something set aside preferentially. Apply this across the board.

Gemini: You would if you could, but you're not ready to commit – so you can't. Do you see that you have a choice and you've exercised it, even though your choice involved not choosing? This is a manifestation of your internal tautological dialogues. Meditate to decrease static.

Cancer: You're one of the best and the brightest. You're one of the naturally talented and skilled. You're one of the elite. But you consistently fall short of your personal benchmarks. Don't resort to cheating to make the numbers look better – you'll still know the truth.

Leo: Is it time yet? It might be. You've been patient. And you've been engaged. And you've been ready for longer than you care to know. So now might be the time. Take a deep breath and look around. You need to know as much as possible about where you are.

Virgo: You're on a roll. You've got momentum and you're not afraid to exploit it. You've got chops and you're not afraid to make them work for you. All that practice, all that study and all that consideration will start paying off this cycle. Prepare yourself for greatness.

Libra: It's not your fault, but nobody was claiming it was. It's not your problem, but you might still be the best equipped to solve it. It's not the end of the world, but you'd do well to live each day as if it really counted. Let go of your downtime in favor of having more.

Scorpio: Whether or not you wanted what you've got is almost immaterial at this point. You have what you have and now you have to figure out what you're going to do with it. This is going to be so much better than making lemonade out of lemons. Open your heart.

Sagittarius: You're on top of the world. This is more comforting if you can forget the way the world keeps turning. This mega wheel of fortune holds all the answers, all the solutions and all the prizes. Equally, it's really impartial when it comes to handing them out.

Capricorn: You've earned it. If only that were enough to keep you going and on top of your game. You've earned it, but you might never be able to get it home given your transportation constraints. Go ahead and pat yourself on the back, you really have earned it.

Aquarius: It wasn't the first time, and it won't be the last. You've aimed high and maybe didn't get all the way there. At the same time, you've increased the depth of your skill sets. You've broadened your knowledge base. You've gotten really good at tying knots to hang onto.

Pisces: Here's a beautiful time of year. Here's the time to enjoy it. And here's the fly in your ointment to make it all just the least bit grittier than you'd prefer. Will you toss out the lot due to the one, small imperfection? Will you hang on and work with the clean bits? Choose.
