Horoscope for March 24, 2014

By
From page B5 | March 24, 2014 |

Some believe people are perfect at birth and become less so by having to adapt to family life under the guidance of parents with unresolved issues. Others believe people come into this lifetime with the karma they had at the end of their previous life. Whatever your belief, the Capricorn moon suggests all can be overcome through hard work.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The day’s events include pressures that you are not used to. Take your time. Solutions spring from a relaxed frame of mind. Also, many an excellent idea has been born in a hot shower.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). As for the thing you keep trying and failing to accomplish, you’re close to a breakthrough. A winning method will be presented to you, and it’s something you can stick to. This is going to work!

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Getting yourself to focus on what you’re supposed to be doing may be difficult, especially when you have the freedom that comes with a few hours to yourself. Anyway, there’s something good that comes of veering off course.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Justice will be delivered – but you’ll wonder whether it’s really justice. You know a wrong was committed and that punishment was inevitable, but you’ll question whether it fits the crime.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). In the natural world, those who are high on the food chain usually have the best chance at survival. This order will be mimicked in the workplace, and your mind will be busy figuring out how to elevate your status.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It’s as though you found the perfect cleaning product for your mind’s eye. With every swipe of your towel, you move toward clarity, and with clarity comes a handsome reward.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you have a problem that is temporarily affecting your ability to interact the way you normally would, don’t be afraid to tell the others involved. You’ll find people to be most understanding where you are concerned.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll feel an incredibly strong bond with someone without an apparent reason why. Your limited interaction with this person shouldn’t warrant such a fervent connection, and yet you feel the way you do.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It’s likely that the idea of handling your responsibilities before allowing yourself any fun won’t appeal to you one bit. But if you stick to the rules, you’ll be proud of yourself when the day is done.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Tranquility can only be achieved in the now moment. A memory of tranquility is only a hollow reminder, and hopes for tranquility are inherently laced with unrest.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). As marathoners know, it takes careful conservation of personal energy to run a long, slow race. The first step toward your success is realizing that this indeed is a long race, and there won’t be a prize within the first few miles.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’re in a more powerful position than you think. Don’t obligate yourself by accepting help too soon. There’s a good chance you can work this out on your own.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 24). Life calls, you answer – and this is the start of an adventure. April brings new friends and updates to your image, too. May will focus on your idea of fun, which will develop in interesting ways. Plug a financial drain in June, and you’ll continue to earn more and more through September. There’s a proposal in November. Cancer and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 24, 38, 9 and 5.

MOLEOMANCY SPECIAL: See the archives for information on birthmarks and moles anywhere on the body above the knees. Continuing on down the body…

Knees: In some religions, pilgrims and disciples are asked to crawl to a holy place. Soldiers are knighted on their knees. A man proposes marriage on bended knee. Kneeling in prayer or to take the sacrament is a concept that stretches across multiple religions. In general, knees have to do with status and mobility. In many cultures, to bend a knee to another person is to signal respect and deference. One lowers oneself quite literally to show humility and to indicate the conscious decision to allow the other person to take a higher status.

Left Knee: A birthmark here indicates many years of service in hopes of earning the right to a degree, position, rank, award, membership or other position of status. Success in this endeavor is highly likely.

Right Knee: This mark indicates a person more likely to create his or her own system and be the ruler of it. Service still will occur, but as in the case of an entrepreneur who owns a company, instead of working under a boss, the work must be done to appease many “bosses” who are in fact customers and clients.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: His role as Sheldon Cooper of “The Big Bang Theory” has earned him many awards, including two Emmys, but Jim Parsons isn’t likely to let such things go to his head. Empathetic Pisces planets and his lucky Jupiter in Aquarius suggest that Parsons is most driven by the prospect that others will be helped by his work, whether by laughter or by leveraging his celebrity to make a difference.
