Mercury is antagonizing Jupiter at the moment, but perhaps he should give the heroic planet a break. After all, the gassy giant may very well be saving the rest of the planets from disaster right this moment. The massive magnetic pull of Jupiter regularly absorbs the large asteroids that would otherwise surely collide calamitously with us.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Can you feel it? Your time is coming. Right now it may seem that the spotlight is taking its sweet time getting around to you, but take advantage of the extra moments. You still have some work to do to prepare.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). What good is it to have powerful allies if you never call on them to support you? While it would be wasteful to ask for more help than you need, at least touch base to keep the relationships current.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll make mistakes, but don’t give up. It’s the little flubs that make a process seem more real. Also, this gives you an excuse to connect with others. Your shared story is more interesting because of it.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re in just the mood to shun the false sense of security that comes from trying to anticipate and control the action. Embrace the fresh and free feeling of one who is living on the edge.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Success isn’t the same thing as financial profitability. Many confuse the two and make the classic mistake of thinking that the trappings of success are actually success itself. That kind of thinking is a trap.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Just like your body, your heart is vulnerable to occasional bumps and bruises. When it hurts, say so — and encourage others to do the same. The attempt to conceal pain makes it more acute.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You use your senses to take in the moment and your higher mind to assimilate the information into a useful context. For various reasons, some people around you can’t do this for themselves. Help them.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You may find yourself feeling uncomfortable with the basic tenets of society in your neck of the woods — for instance, maybe you don’t want to dress like the others. Consider that you might be better suited to a different environment.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You find complaining not only useless, but also really annoying. Make it a policy not to mention unacceptable circumstances unless you also offer a solution.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You admire people who are not reliant on the favorable opinions of others. You are such a person! Even though you like being praised, you’ll act out of a sense of responsibility to represent what you believe.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Just because you don’t make a big deal about being on a spiritual path doesn’t mean you’re not on one. Living your life the best way you know how is a journey of the spirit.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Are you happily moving from one task to another because you enjoy the stimulation of change? Or are you restlessly wandering because you haven’t found your way? Only you know the truth.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 8). You will invest some of that strong faith that is your Piscean birthright back into your own being. Honoring yourself in this way makes you more able to generously give to others. You accept a great responsibility, and your financial realm expands through May and June. A creative blossoming happens in July. Capricorn and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 50, 2, 14, 5 and 18.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: A systematic approach to romance will only suck all the fun out of it. Let yourself be free and whimsical. TAURUS: You’ll thrive in the company of quality people. Like attracts like! GEMINI: What you used to vaguely want, you now will go after like your life depends on it. CANCER: You can’t tell exactly what others are thinking about you, but you do know that you’re enjoying all the smiles. LEO: You have an advantage that you’re not playing. Work it! VIRGO: You shouldn’t have to make a huge effort to get attention. If you are, that’s a sign that you’re trying to get it from the wrong person. LIBRA: Something you believed about yourself will turn out to be untrue. This sets you free. SCORPIO: You’ll be a beacon of good manners in a discourteous world. Your polite charms will catch someone’s interest. SAGITTARIUS: The longer you go without seeking or needing someone’s approval, the more attractive you become to that person. CAPRICORN: Many more could be slipping by you while you stop to dream about one who got away. Wake up! AQUARIUS: Someone is falling in love with your voice. PISCES: You have that magic quality best described as “It.”
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: The Aquarius moon nuzzles close to the prevalent Pisces energy in the sky, kindling new interest between these zodiac neighbors. Though they may be compatible on many levels, there’s a creative connection between these two that shouldn’t be ignored. Approaching romance as an art form will ensure a happy relationship.
