The birds, daffodils and stars are all trying to tell us something: It’s sprung, people! The sun’s rays touch Aries, the day and night are of equal length, and the new season is officially upon us.
A Light exists in Spring
Not present on the Year
At any other period —
When March is scarcely here…
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Friendships need a sense of pacing. If you reveal too much about yourself too soon, the mystery is spoiled. So you’ll build anticipation instead, making it a pleasure to get to know you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Take the pressure off of yourself. The situation at hand isn’t as crucial as others are making it seem. Whether you get it right or wrong, you’ll have an adventure.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll be privy to information you do not understand. This is just the opportunity you wanted: a chance to learn and grow. Your talent for cracking codes will be put to use, too.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Etiquette matters to you. You have your own rules and preferences for personal interaction, and what you learn from talking with others today will inspire you to add to that list.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You like to be entertained, but lately it seems like your truth is definitely stranger than the bits of fiction you see on television or read about. Could it be time to write your story?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll hear what people think whether or not you want to. Before agreeing or disagreeing with anyone’s opinions, see whether you can sense the feeing behind them. Emotional attunement will lead you somewhere lucky.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You want to make life easier for others, but when it comes to your pocketbook, it’s dangerous to be too laid back. Sales people who make you feel bad for asking questions aren’t doing the job right. Walk.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When one thing changes in your work flow, everything else has to adjust, as well. If you have wide margins of error, the adjustments will be minimal. So make it easy on yourself, and build in those wide margins!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Conversation may heat up, and this may be the sign of a healthy relationship. People who feel free to express how they really feel have the potential to bond deeply.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). If you get the feeling that what you’re saying isn’t landing properly, give it time. Perhaps your thought-provoking remarks do not yield meaning as readily as you think, but others will catch on eventually.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Not all breaks with reality are delusional or psychotic. The flight of fancy you take today will be so high-minded that you could accidentally create the better world you will later inhabit.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When things happen easily, as they will now that Mercury and others are flying straight through your part of the sky, you can’t help but think that you’re on the right track.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 20). Sincere and relentless effort over the next four weeks ensures that a fond birthday wish will come true. Utilize your connections to move through a problem, and you’ll turn it into a May moneymaker. Family depends on your cheerleading. Community projects that come together in September will be part of your legacy. Pisces and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 14, 39, 15 and 27.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I’m an Aries artist. It seems like the world is trying to crush the art out of me. I hate my office job. I’m only 21, and I spend most of my time trying to make a living so I can feed, clothe and shelter myself. Why does life have to make it so hard for me to do what I was born to do? I get so frustrated and angry. Is the universe against me? When will I get a break? — Angry Aries Artist”
Your fiery intensity and Aries impatience may be getting in the way of your perspective. As an artist, you must know how crucial a thing like perspective can be. Pull back for the long shot. It’s challenging for any young person to build an independent life, and building a life in art is a bonus challenge. But you’re doing it. You’ve covered the basics, and now it’s time to establish artistic habits that will hold you in good stead in the long slog ahead. Start by fitting in two sacred hours a day for your art. You’ll be amazed at what you can do in 10 to 14 hours a week. The sun crossing into your sign will put a fire in your belly, and you’ll feel lighter, too.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Aries actor Matthew Broderick lends his perennially boyish charms to the upcoming film “Skum Rocks!” The film chronicles the unbelievable true story of an ‘80s rock band that rose to popularity without the help of musical talent. Born under a Libra moon, Broderick is a lover of harmony both in music and in relationships. Mercury and Mars in Pisces are ideal aspects for the acting life.
