Mars, Uranus and Pluto Rumblings
Troublemakers Mars and Uranus meet up. Throw a Pluto square into the mix, and it’s time to take precautions. Inspect your tools to make sure they are in good working order. Get up to date with car, house and health maintenance. Check your motives before you leave the house. Doing things for the right reasons keeps you in the clear.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). How will you lull someone into your world? Good news! Right now, you don’t even have to try. The planets are on your side, so just show up and make your offer.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). By tracking what happened before, you’ll make a good guess as to what’s coming next. You’re excellent at detecting patterns and will use this skill to your advantage.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You like complicated people because they have an interesting point of view and usually add a spark of beauty, intellect or humor to your world. You also know better than to get too close.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You may feel that what’s required of you is unfair. But the fact is that you are asked to do more because you are capable of more. Others see greatness in you, and they want to develop it.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The requests that are made of you may initially seem difficult to fulfill, but instead of protesting or waffling, you’ll show your confidence by just saying yes. You’ll figure it out as you go.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your live-and-let-live policy is interrupted by someone who really does seem to need your insight and help. Tread carefully here. An egoless assist could make a huge difference in the life of another.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The difference between a pro and an amateur is that the pro won’t use as many words. Excuses, explanations and complaints aren’t a part of the pro’s repertoire.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Nothing good will come of forceful tools, attitudes and ways. A warm, soft style will help you stay connected to the people and things that make you feel safe.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Some people think that cheerful, relatable small talk is not intelligent. They’re wrong. We’re all affected by the weather, and talking about it might be the smartest way to build rapport.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Most of us want to avoid high-maintenance people and situations. If you want help, make it easy for others to get involved in what you’re doing. If a task is too involved, it won’t get done.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If you find yourself thinking that you can do it later, that’s called flinching. Flinching causes people to drop the ball. Use the moment in front of you. Assume you won’t get another chance.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your creativity may get in the way of the logical statement you are trying to make. Let it interfere. There is a deep and trustworthy intelligence in your imagination.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 22). Dance when you’re asked, sing along, and when in doubt, say yes. Responses like these will hold you in good stead, as the year produces many spur-of-the-moment opportunities that are not to be missed. April and May bring new business and financial betterment. Your focus on one relationship makes June special. Aquarius and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 17, 35, 48, 20 and 11.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Generic moves won’t work. You’ll win a heart with an interaction that is personal and specific. TAURUS: You’ll find something you love about another person, and that gives you a reason for wanting to escalate the relationship. GEMINI: If all the barriers to love don’t come down, this is probably better for the relationship. It gives you something to work toward together. CANCER: You do get nervous about certain aspects of a relationship. But when the moment of truth comes, you’ll be calm and unruffled. LEO: Don’t argue about what’s true. Hear opinions, and listen for opportunities to agree. VIRGO: If the plan is shaky, this only works to your advantage. You’ll have more fun when things don’t go as expected. LIBRA: Your taste is amazing. Others may not share it, but they learn from it. SCORPIO: Because there’s nothing you desperately need from another person, you’ll be able to stay in the moment. SAGITTARIUS: Whatever you do, don’t yell. Love drifts on sweet, soft tones. CAPRICORN: A relationship will help you gain access to places you wouldn’t see otherwise. AQUARIUS: You’ll be in the mood to take the pressure off of yourself and follow another person’s lead. PISCES: Fitness pursuits turn up the dial on your happiness.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Stars vary in color because each one is made up of a unique combination of elements. Their flames change according to the elements they are burning. Leo and Aries are two fire signs flaming in different colors this weekend. Leo will smolder in mellow blues and greens, while Aries, feeding from the attention of Venus, will burn in pinks and reds. For this pair, love will be hot but luckily not all-consuming.
