Heavenly Round-Up: You're sluggish and out of sorts. You're wondering why the weather (inside and out) can't make up its mind and just be. You're trapped in the middle of things, a long way from your comfort zone. You're torn between the big picture and its demands on your moral conduct and personal ethics on the one hand, and your itty-bitty concerns about the day-to-day running of the life you've chosen and about which you can't help but feel ambivalent. It's nobody's fault. It's not insurmountable. Try!

Aries: Don't reach out on impulse just now. There are strings attached to just about everything, and someone's pulling your chain to boot. Rather than sulking, you might reassess and pick a more fortunate direction from which to make your attempt. Watch the clouds.

Taurus: You don't have to be popular. You don't have to be understood. You don't have to be fast. You only have to be determined to get from where you are now to where you want to be. You'll find you have the motivation once you refocus on your objectives. Ask Virgo.

Gemini: It's not the first time. It won't be the last time. You're caught in the middle again, but you're not the target this time -- and you can take your pleasures where you find them. Depend on your friends to see you through the tight times, and you won't mind the hassle so much.

Cancer: What you do next may show your mettle to the world. You're in a corner, and it's not (for once) a situation entirely of your own making. Choose to take the high road, and you'll set an example to go down in the books. Think of your legacy before you act on Friday.

Leo: Was it something you ate? Was it that dream you had the other night? Was it a conversation overheard at work? All of a sudden, you're filled with divine discontent, just when you're meant to be more present and accounted for than you've ever been. Meditate for clarity.

Virgo: It isn't your fault or problem more than anyone else's, but you've been designated the problem solver here. Can you tap your circle of resources to get some help? Can you focus your own skills to make the most of your time? Can you step back and let others do, for once?

Libra: Call on your allies. It's time to get the program back up and running. It's time to make your mark on the world. At least it's time to begin your preparations to get from here to there. How long did it take Hannibal to collect all those elephants? You have lots to do on Sunday.

Scorpio: You'll sleep when this is over. You'll catch up on your leisure time once the busy season has passed. You'll sort out the confusion once you've repositioned yourself to take advantage of the fabulous situation you created for yourself, all by yourself. Celebrate with Pisces.

Sagittarius: So you want to sleep in? How is that different than usual? Have you had your iron levels checked? Are you managing your adaptogens? Have you been getting enough exercise? Your spring fever is here and now for a specific reason. Consult your dreams to learn.

Capricorn: Don't let the general lassitude slow you down. Don't let the ball roll away from you when it's in your possession. Don't give in to the general air of doubt and confusion. You have the skills most in demand at present. You're the right person at the right time. Call.

Aquarius: Looking solves some problems. Thinking solves some problems. Talking solves some problems. Doing would make the whole mess go away entirely. Can you motivate others to follow where you would lead? Can you let the pressure do some of the work for you?

Pisces: You want to jump right in, but you're a little shy. You want to sing out, but you don't know if you can carry the tune. You want to make yourself useful, but you're not convinced of your capabilities. Release your doubts. Eschew your fears. Liberate your inadequacies.
