Week of: Mar. 11 – 17
“Beware of the Ides of March!”
in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar Act 1, scene 2
Aries [3/23-4/20]: The good news is that negative influence of Venus goes rolling out of your sign this week. That means you can stop with the war-like actions because these actions will result in nothing. What does it mean? You don’t have to worry about running over anyone with your boat. No more small arms fire to take out pesky Wave Cycle Ski Do things. Most important: don’t run over any of these guys either because that would get you in trouble. Nope, you’ll notice that they tend to leave you alone by the end of the week. Safe boating is THE operative word this week.
Taurus [4/21-5/22]: Perhaps you’ve been listening when I’ve been talking about this idea of putting off glory and reward and buckling down for a little self sacrifice. Then again, maybe not. In any case,. you will find that the idea of delayed gratification comes swimming to the surface again this week. While it’s a great idea on paper, you might have some problems with the actual implementation of the concept. It works like this: do something good right now and expect to get reward in about, well, it looks as if it is going to be a very long wait on the reward. You have been warned.
Gemini [5/23-6/21]: Take a deep breathe, my good Gemini. The brown stuff is about to be rather unevenly distributed because it is going to hit the fan. Sorry about that. Just consider this a fair warning. The problem is that you have certain feelings of wanting the most out of your domestic arrangement. In plain English, you probably want to get married and settle down. While that’s a great idea, this over-powering domestic feeling will pass in a week. Don’t do anything foolish right now — it’s not time for it quite yet. Your hour in the sun is coming soon, though, and I promise that.
Cancer [6/22-7/22]: The good news is that the romance department is working better than ever before. That’s the good news. The unfortunate downside to romance being so good right now is that awful stuff called work. Sorry about that, but just remember, I merely report what the stars say, not the way it has to be. To make matters worse with work, you will probably try to expand beyond any reasonable limits this week. Try and remember where you are and keep your goals within reach.
Leo [7/23-8/23]: One way I consistently describe Leo the Lion is as a creature who like to roar. That’s the nice part, too. The Leo Lion should be a doing a lot of roaring this week, too, because there is some interesting stuff being conjured up in the relationship department. There are also some repressed energies which must find a way out (hence the roar analogy). Well, Mr. Know-It-All Astrologer Dude, what’s this mean? Look for some exciting and noisy changes this week for Lions. Relationships, especially romantic ones, are in the spotlight. Don’t be surprised if the Mighty Lion turns cuddly.
Virgo [8/24-9/23]: Dear, sweet, obessive – compulsive Virgo, what a week you’ve got coming up! You’re about to wrap up some work-related projects which feel like the projects themselves are long overdue. Then, there’s this romantic element which keeps nagging at the back or your mind, or maybe it’s your answering machine that keeps getting the annoying tone, but you know that’s all about. It’s that relationship thing. He or she is back in your life right now, and the problem with the OTHER PERSON is that he or she is not as neat as you are. Drive them crazy, doing something out of character–don’t clean this week. Then watch the fun!
Libra [9/24-10/23]: Well, more than any other sign, this week feels like a it’s a relationship week for you. A couple of big indicators, astrologically speaking, is Venus striking a pose opposite you, Chiron and his pesky demeanor is riding on top of you , and the ever-present Lunar Node, is making life a little more difficult. What all of these astrological pointers mean is that you are examining how you relate to people in new and constantly changing light. This is more than romance, too, because you spend all day relating to people. Even your chance encounters are under scrutiny at this time.
Scorpio [10/24-11/23]: The week starts out really rough for you arachnid archetypes. There is nothing I can do to make that any better, either. That’s the bad news. Like any good Scorpio, you need the bad news first. The good news is that the Moon moves into your tropical sign by the end of the week, and that brings a certain pensive moodiness quality to you. And, better yet, you begin to feel a lot better. Much better. The world is not your enemy anymore. For one, brief, shining day day, you will be a happy camper. Don’t let it go to your head.
Sagittarius [11/24-12/21]: I guess that now is as good a time as any to let you know about a few things that might be going on for the next few years: changing world view. That’s your world view which is destined to reach a sharp and abrupt turn around. Used to a be a Yellow Dog Democrat? Watch you vote Republican in the next year. Well, maybe the change won’t be that severe, but you get the idea. You do have some drastic changes coming along, however, since you are a good Sage, you will take this changes in stride, so to speak. Be careful with your paramour this week because you don’t want to needlessly alienate any of your friends right now.
Capricorn [12/22-1/20]: Money. Dreams. Fantasies. Do you remember which piece of American Fiction has a character who like to pile all of her money on the bed so she can roll around in it? It’s not a pretty scene, but there you have it. Anyway, the two problem areas which you need to address this week are 1] making money, and 2] not dreaming about how you will spend that money. Too much. Don’t spend too much time dreaming. Reality took flight from you a little while ago, and now you are all revved up with no where to go. Just be patient and pretend that you will soon be counting your dollars.
Aquarius [1/21-2/18]: The good news is the wedding and all its attendant problems is over. The bad news is that the honeymoon is over this week, too, as Venus and her gentle ways leaves your sign. Now that the honeymoon is over, it’s like you are going to wake up one morning this week, look your partner in the eye, and think, “My God, what have I done?” I tell you what, I’ll give a bonus point and chart to any Aquarius who can tell me what song I was thinking of…. It’s time to get back to work, down to the nuts and bolts of this relationship if you don’t decide on a quick annulment, time to make it all work.
Pisces [2/19-3/22]: Oh dear, often maligned, but always good-natured Pisces: the good news is that the the party is almost over. The bad news is that the elements of the heavens are conspiring to throw you a party like one that you have never had before, a chance to say good bye to old Mr. Saturn, but the heavens want to make sure you remember his trip through Pisces, so…. get ready for the invigorating Mars/Sun/Saturn threesome tango. It will be fun.
