Venus Cuts Her Hair

When the ultra-feminine sign of Venus enters the battlefield of Aries, she does what many heroines before her have done. Joining the ranks of Joan of Arc, G.I. Jane and Britney Spears, Venus cuts her hair. In the weeks to come, a tougher sense of beauty will emerge. Any love worth having will be a love worth fighting for — and fight we will.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Let your natural state overtake you. If your body feels relaxed and comfortable and free, there’s nothing more you need to do for physical health at the moment.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You may feel the warmth of love inside you, though that is useless to the object of your affection unless you also express the feeling with your actions. Love is a verb.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Today brings lessons about enjoying the ordinary. Chores are pleasant exercises. Errands are a chance to connect with the people in your neighborhood who help the community run smoothly.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your magnanimous actions will surprise those around you because they are not the norm for the situation, though they should be. Keep it up, and you’ll start a trend.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll find the strategies that work for you by mentally trying things on to see what feels right. One size does not fit all, and one method does not work for everyone. Do it your way.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Sometimes, in order to inject a sense of purpose into your routine, you have to remind yourself that what you’re doing is important. People depend on you. Your energy and efforts make a difference.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The levity of spring will surround you wherever you go. It’s almost as though you’re the one making the trees bud and the birds sing. There are highlights to this day that will stay with you forever.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Maybe time will prove that you indulged in unreasonable fantasies today. But it is better to have expectations and live up to them than to have doubts and live down to them.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If your mojo seems to have slipped out the back when you weren’t looking, no worries. You’ll get it back today after you take a nice, long, unstructured, carefree break.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll feel more in control if you record what’s going on with you now. Take a picture of what you’re doing, write down an idea, or chronicle your day in some other interesting way.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You are a riddle. Just by being who you are and doing what comes naturally, you give others the idea that they must figure you out. Of course, they won’t be able to — at least not today.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll put yourself out there. Start with a sure thing. Try to get helpful, warm, loving people to lend you a hand. This is no day to try to win over the difficult, prickly ones.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 21). Don’t worry so much about whether you’re doing the right thing. If you’re doing it for the right reason, all will work out brilliantly. Common sense is your greatest asset in the weeks to come. Follow it to make money in April and to complete a quest in May. Romantic notions are fulfilled in June. You’ll get closure on an old wound, too. Leo and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 12, 34, 39 and 15

VENUS IN ARIES: In her goddess form, Venus is the very essence of feminine allure. She has flowing hair and perfumed zephyrs. She walks on petals and doesn’t move to open her own door; that would be manly, and besides, she never has to. That’s not to say she couldn’t manage if the need arose. She can open doors, move mountains and turn worlds inside out if she wants to. What could make her want to?

The call of Aries, that’s what. This part of the sky is a battleground. All who enter should bear arms and be ready to fight. This is no time to feign weakness or let others do your bidding for you. Beauty will be a struggle. We will have to strategize to find truth. And love is worth fighting for.

From now until April 15, relationships will challenge you to decide what has value and to determine the price. Sometimes we will have to make the sacrifice first in order to understand what things cost. The true value of a relationship will be determined by the lengths to which you are willing to go to make it good or save it.

“Heartache to heartache we stand/No promises, no demands/Love is a battlefield.” — Pat Benatar

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Though she is well known for her work in comedies such as “Election” and “Legally Blonde,” versatile Aries Reese Witherspoon is equally convincing in more serious fare, as she’ll prove again in her starring role in the crime drama “Devil’s Knot.” Her natal sun, moon and Mars in Aries indicates a fiery, passionate intensity of spirit. Witherspoon’s Mercury and Saturn are in artistic Pisces.
