March 29-April 2, 2012

Heavenly Round-Up: There’s so much that might happen if the fates take a hand. There’s so much that could turn around if the timing is just right. There’s so much that would blossom if only a little nurturing were applied. Will you find your way to rise to the challenge? There’s plenty of environmental noise serving as a distraction, and there are a lot of folks acting in an even more disruptive manner. Will you continue to function as all around you descend into whining? Stay strong.

Aries: You’re ready to charge full steam ahead. Great. Keep your eye on the tiller and not the cutie you’re with. Keep a steady hand on the rudder and mind the business before you. Once you’re out of the tricky launching stage, you’ll have a steady wind behind you.

Taurus: It’s not getting going that has your tail in a twist. It’s controlling the rate at which you progress while simultaneously holding onto the myriad details. Now would be a good time to call in the cavalry. Now would be a good time to start delegating with élan.

Gemini: You could walk the talk until your shoes fell from your feet. This would deepen the convictions of some, but will it open the eyes of the opposition? Not until you gather the necessary critical mass and determine how and when to use the force (for good).

Cancer: You’ve seen more than most folks can even imagine. You’ve traveled in your mind, even if you haven’t logged the actual mileage. Have respect for the breadth of your own experiences. Don’t hold back in offering support, opinions and guidance. You’re a contender!

Leo: We live in interesting, if volatile, times. We have an obligation to act in the world with intention and courage. We sometimes even have to get our hands dirty if we want to shift the existing foundations of perception. Call an Aries for useful advice.

Virgo: You’re on a roll. And someone asked for the works with that. Hold tight, it’s about to get crowded in your neck of the woods. Carve out time for relaxation. Save space to create serenity. Make a commitment to keeping your energy up: rest, vitamins, meditation.

Libra: Certainly, others in your line of work have handled similar situations very differently. Absolutely, you have a choice as to how you respond. Finally, you have an ethical obligation to your own soul, which precludes any external interference. Play hard on Friday.

Scorpio: Once you’ve been through the furnace, will you find you’ve become hardened and shiny? Will you find you’ve become charred and bitter? Will you find you’ve become polished and impervious? All these and more are on the table. Use GPS to find the high road.

Sagittarius: Sense and sensitivity frame the discussion. You may find you’ll do better shifting from one perspective to the next. You may find you’re more successful taking one side and holding it. Now it’s important to stay flexible, fluid and ready to adapt.

Capricorn: Everything’s coming up roses and daffodils. But you can still see the menace lurking in the future. Will you put on your sunglasses and complain about the light levels? Will you leave your sweater at home and find yourself chilly? Prepare and frame a welcome.

Aquarius: It’s time. It’s time to play your trump card. It’s time to bring your best offer. It’s time to go flat out and spend your reserves down to nothing. If you’ve got a deus ex machina, now would be the time to release the ready resolution and unsnarl the Gordian knot.

Pisces: Efficiency serves a purpose. So does wool gathering. The trick is knowing when to apply which mode. Give yourself a pep talk. Give yourself a moment to collect yourself. Give yourself flowers and a lovely evening out. Then get on with doing the right thing!


March 22-28, 2012

Heavenly Round-Up: Use your imagination. Plant the seeds of your future in the garden of the present. You’ll need to tend your seeds to see them flourish and become productive. Pay attention to the requirements of your dreams for air, water and light. You yourself are the earth in which these seeds are imbedded. You provide the sustenance and structure that makes your aspirations real. Remember to focus continually on the physical world while tending to the intuitive in order to make the most of both parallel realities. Dance.

Aries: You are your own worst enemy. You are your own greatest resource. You are the alpha and omega of authorities on becoming your most authentic self. With this much excitement all around you, plan a quiet spring getaway. Look for spa options and comfy napping.

Taurus: You come into your own this weekend. You don’t mind being the center of attention when the attention is positive and you’re also proud of the reason. Celebrate your new beginnings with fitting jollity and joy. It took real spine to get you where you are today. Release.

Gemini: Once around the block and you’re almost dizzy. It’s amazing how burning the candle at both ends can catch right up with you. You’re cruising for a bout of spring fever if you don’t throttle back. Think about taking your vitamins, getting your sleep and managing stress.

Cancer: Here at the cusp of the season you’re in a reflective mode. You want the best for yourself, but you’re not at all certain what that means anymore. Your ironclad go-to resources have been melting away like early spring snowfall. Take a personal inventory. Count everything!

Leo: You’ve been here before. Or else you have dreadful déjà vu. All right, you can skip orientation since you know your way around. Will you fall into old patterns in this familiar environment? Will you take the time to improve your weaknesses, capitalize on your strengths?

Virgo: There’s a rhythm to the world. There’s a pace to your growth. When the two coincide, you get more bang for your buck than just about anyone. You’re in that zone. You can see the climacterics leading up to this point. You can see their best-case outcomes. Leave early.

Libra: Don’t dismiss what you haven’t had time to investigate. You can’t trust the gossip this time around, even considering the source. So buckle down and put the time aside to inform yourself using your own research. Find corroborating evidence before you act.

Scorpio: Time and tide are merely the earthiest forms of destiny. There are others. Some are invisible, driven by emotion and vision. You are much afflicted with these. And you are much torn by your unending duties to the ”real” world. Don’t eliminate. Instead, split your time.

Sagittarius: If it were any more fun, it definitely wouldn’t be legal. Is that why you feel so guilty when you’re being so productive? Quit beating yourself up. You choose to enjoy the life you handed yourself. Others have the option, whether they recognize it or not!

Capricorn: You can if you want to. No, really. But you’ll have to want to a great deal. Now, start making lists. And start figuring out what your ”must haves” are and where you’re open to compromise. If you don’t have a fallback position prepared, you’re courting chaos.

Aquarius: It might not be seemly to feel such delight at the discomfort of those who tormented you (unwittingly or not). You’re not repentant, and you don’t owe an apology anywhere since you’re also able to maintain legendary discretion. Loose lips sink ships!

Pisces: Don’t believe everything you read. Don’t believe everything you hear. Do believe in the power of your active imagination. Do go for what makes the most difference to you, whether others see the utility of your choices or not. You’re on the right track this time.
