ASTROLOGYBy: Holiday Mathis
Sun conjunct Venus in Aries brings us face to face with our beliefs about love. If we think we are only entitled to a sliver of life’s wedding cake, then that mentality shows up big time in our closest relationships now. Dare to want more, to ask for more and to accept more. Mercury retrograde is nearby causing mischief, and this is no smooth ride!
ARIES (March 21-April 19). There is no limit to what you’ll do for the love of a friend. (OK, there are a lot of limits, to be honest. Still, you’re willing to be mildly uncomfortable if it makes the other person happy.)
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You may think that you and a certain loved one understand each other so well that you don’t need words. But you do need words. So speak up and be very clear.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The mood is cheery this morning, but the barrage of demands that comes afterward makes it challenging to stay positive. By evening, you could use a spiritual uplift. Invite that sunny person over tonight.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Become a vigilant observer of your own thoughts. When you’re right in the thick of the scene, you might have a flash of powerful insight about the actions you took to create this complicated drama.
LEO (July 23-August 22). Don’t be fooled by an overnight success story. Someone may be trying to get your money by playing on your ambition. Remember: Wishing for success is quick work. But success is a slow-ripening fruit.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 1). You’re open to new experiences and as a result will be a different person by your next birthday. Love and friendship accompany you through the summer. A key relationship gets serious. Travel with loved ones and have a blast in July. You’ll win and lose money, and in the process figure out how to win more often! Love signs are Pisces and Libra. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 53, 49, 37 and 35.
VIRGO (August 23-September 22). There are many bold personalities around you, battling over territory. You could come out the winner in this dispute by staying under the radar. Listen actively, and you’ll be handed opportunities.
LIBRA (September 23-October 23). You’re still on the lookout for that beloved person who will double your joy and divide your grief. Here’s a hint: It’s someone in your world now, only you’ve never seen him or her in that light before.
SCORPIO (October 24-November 21). It feels like your time is managing you and not the other way around. To gain mastery over your schedule and your environment, you’ll have to say “no” to some pretty persuasive people!
SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21). You have important information to impart and deserve undivided attention. Tell that to family members and they might just laugh. You’ll have to use your charm to coerce them into respecting you!
CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19). You’re internally confident and outwardly focused. What more could your colleagues want from you? That’s why the tough jobs fall on your desk. Consider hiring help so you can focus on the tasks that only you can do well.
AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18). It’s hard to be serious, but there are remedies to improve your concentration. Just ask Aries. Changes in your intellectual approach will affect your personal life, too. Detach from that which you cannot control.
PISCES (February 19-March 20). If you’re still wondering which person you’ll end up with, take a look in the mirror. That familiar face was there from the start and will be there in the end. Does he or she deserve to be treated with the most care?
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I’m an Aries born April 9, 1960. I haven’t had a relationship in 16 years. What’s up with that? Am I, and others like me, destined to walk the Earth alone? So many of us do. What should I be doing instead of waiting for Mr. Right who will probably never come?”
On walking the Earth alone: You’re not alone. As far as what you should be doing instead of waiting for Mr. Right: Look at all of the connections you have established in this lifetime and all of the ways you are connected to your fellow beings. Write about this in a journal. Celebrate and be grateful for those relationships, even though they don’t fit your description of romantic love. When you recognize and give energy to the ways in which you are willing to be connected to others, you will start to broaden your capacity to connect. Make a daily practice of celebrating your connection to your fellow human, and within a few lunar cycles I predict you will have attracted more love, in its various forms, to your life.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Celine Dion is a fiery Aries performer with her Sun, Moon and Saturn in Aries. Her chart reveals a risk-taking, high energy personality that burns the candle at both ends. This year, a stroke of marketing genius could cause her to align with an unlikely product, boosting sales and setting a new business precedent. During a hiatus from her Vegas show late this spring, she’ll make her press-worthy move.
