Welcome March this week which they say comes in like a lion and out like a lamb. Since Venus retrogrades in Aries, making us emotionally rambunctious, I say hold onto your hats! Or is your heads...??

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
You make a very strong first impression now. Is that what you had in mind, Aries? For those who want to knock folks off their feet, you will do it easily. For those who may prefer a more subtle approach, tread carefully and watch what you say and how you say it. You can inspire strong emotions. Just which emotions are totally up to you...
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
If you have a mysterious admirer, let them stay in the background for a few more weeks. Taureans anxious to reveal secrets may find them far more emotional than they first thought. Stay in your dreamy nirvana and meditate on mellow vibes. There will be plenty of time to open up your Pandora’s Box of wild excitement and you want to be well rested.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Friends may have your best interests at heart but you may not believe them. Your heart says otherwise! Geminis sometimes are in love with love. But right now you are apt to shower your affections on less-than-deserving amours. Don’t go overboard until you ask the advice of a pal. They say love is blind but a second pari of eyes can help you avoid an accident.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Do what you need to do to advance your career but don’t get overly emotional if things take longer than you expect. Cancers might find that those in power have other priorities and any attempt to push your agenda now will cause pushback. Don’t despair - go with the political flow and bide your time. You will gain the advantage soon enough. Heh, heh.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Leos with dreams of faraway romance may have to wait for the spring before an exotic love life heats up. But if you have itchy paws that want to wander the world, don’t postpone your travel plans. Go and see the world through objective, logical eyes. You can formulate your plans and use all of your experiences for future conquests. Anyone we know??
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Even your sexiest moves may miss the mark now, Virgo. Maybe it is because you are overly emotional. There seems to be a lot riding on a particular romance. My advice - playing a little hard to get will spark the passions of some very sexy prospects. Once you get them where you want them, what then? Be sure to plan ahead, just in case!
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Partners demand more of your attention and may get upset when you don’t give it to them. So be sure that you tread carefully in any important relationship, Libra. Don’t let your mind wander or your attention be diverted at pivotal times. Being present, even if you don’t totally agree, will make a difference. You can always kiss and make up.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Are you finding all of the little things in your life building up to a stressful breaking point, Scorpio? If so, this is a great time to learn to place all these things in context. Don’t sweat the small stuff. All stress will pass without any major effort on your part. So pull back, meditate and divert your attention to more pleasant activities. Stamp collecting, anyone?
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Fun may not be all that it is cracked up to be now, Sagittarius. In fact, anything frivolous might turn out to be more work than you thought. Parties may become a bore or too frenzied to enjoy. Romance may require lots of work. Artistic pursuits may involve much more effort, energy, stress or worry. Well, they say that genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Any home redecorating plans should be postponed for a few weeks. Any large family gatherings should be scheduled elsewhere. Why? Because your directions may be misunderstood or the beauty of the project may change as it gets underway. Relax in your current surroundings with the happy knowledge that eventually, things will improve. But not right now, Capricorn.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
While you think you are being crystal clear and even elegant in your verbal requests, you may not be. In fact your requests may produce the opposite results. Aquarians with loud opinions are advised to keep things to themselves for a little longer. Let your magnificent personality shine through without saying a word. But, oh, those roaming hands!
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Even if you really think that something is a big bargain and there is no time to lose, let your dream purchase slide. Things are not what they seem and gold can turn to dross before your eyes. Pisces with a yen to spend should spend their time instead. Wasting time, at least for the next few weeks, is much better than squandering your hard earned cash.
