Heavenly Round-Up: Is it Fate? Necessity? Something you ate? You're all fired up, but there's something in the atmosphere you just can't digest. How can you interact differently with your environment such that you find yourself nurtured and supported? How can you inspire yourself and others to be the best of all possible, reasonable, rational souls? What will you plant in this season of fecundation to make yourself happy at harvest time? You'll have to be a lot more intentional than the lilies of the field.

Aries: Hold your water, and your ire. It's easier to be irritated than it is to unpick the problem and go through the tedium of creating a viable solution. It's easier to reject the imperfect than it is to temper and polish work in progress. Recreate the dream.

Taurus: When you first arrived, you were ready to put your whole self into it. Now you're ready to throw up your hands and walk away -- in a dignified manner, of course. But the easy way out doesn't change anything. Choose to be powerful. Choose to act.

Gemini: If you could do more, you would. Not because it needs doing especially; but because you need to be distracted. What are you avoiding? What information are you drowning out? What is creating so much angst and discomfort? Reassess and face the music with certainty.

Cancer: It does indeed walk, quack and feel like a duck. But you don't have to take anybody's word for that. Hands-on will take you farther and with less circling back to confirm the known. You receive unexpected news concerning investments. Don't put all your eggs in one basket.

Leo: Hands down, you're still the contender. If you want, you might grow a second, auxiliary spine--since there's going to be more boat-rocking and hullaballoo on account of your insistence than you've anticipated. This is a season of storms and shifts. Embrace it.

Virgo: It's not your fault. It's not your problem. It's not going on your permanent record. But you're still the best hope for a ready solution and a determined approach to getting the job done. Will you pitch in? Will you turn your back? What does your gut tell you?

Libra: You've gone to the well and back, again and again. You vowed to stop carrying water for the unworthy, but you haven't stuck by that inner promise. Was the lure of the ideal so strong? Was your desire for reason so compelling? Give it another go.

Scorpio: Since you've dug yourself such a nice, firm rut, you might think of making it serve a different purpose. You could grow things in it, after you augment the soil. You could consider it the side of a foundation for a new direction. But will you be so brave?

Sagittarius: If you listen closely, you can hear the world shifting inexorably and eternally away from what has gone before. That's okay with you. You weren't all that sold on the old version of reality. But since the manifest is what you make of it, what will you make?

Capricorn: Destiny, obligation, desire and compulsion weave a strong web. You're practical to the nth degree, but can you resist the lure of the tried and true? ''Better the devil you know'' is safe, but it's not a best practice point of view. Reconsider your options Sunday.

Aquarius: Here's a conundrum coming at you. But that's just peachy; it's one in a string both behind and before you. These koans of daily life help you develop perspective and compassion. Let the puzzle of reality both enhance and broaden your mind.

Pisces: It's all hands on deck. Look, but do touch. Get in the dirt and roll for all you're worth. You've kept a dainty, discreet distance for long enough. Now it's time to go for what you know until you're immersed in everything. Reality? You're soaking in it! Decamp.
