Horoscopes for Feb. 28, 2013

By
From page A9 | February 28, 2013 |

In Greek mythology, the inspiration for literature, art and science came from the goddesses of inspiration — nine sisters born from sacred springs, each with particular gifts to bestow upon the lucky mortal of her choosing. The current position of Venus and Neptune suggests that the muses are standing by, eager to get your call.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). When someone you were thinking about calls you, it’s an affirmation of your psychic powers. Put them to even better use by envisioning an improved version of your personal life.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Instead of talking to a few people in depth, connect briefly with many. There is something valuable to be gained from skimming the surface and covering a lot of social ground.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your retrograde guiding planet may lead you back to the scene of a mistake, giving you the rare do-over opportunity. You don’t have to do it right; just do it different from the way you did it the last time.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re not trying to win someone over. Rather, you just want to express yourself completely. Anyway, small gestures will soon be forgotten. You’ll have to be bold to make a difference.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Ideally, you’d have someone else around to sing your praises, but this is not always possible. Better to do some confident self-promotion than to modestly let an opportunity slip by.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). When you really like someone, you will think of ways to be of help. You’ll present a few this afternoon. Your aim is not to be paid, but to build the relationship and your value.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It does you no good to have projects on the back burner if you don’t remember to turn on the heat. Once you do, you’ll be surprised at how many will be happily fed from that low-key little dish.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Unlike the inexperienced people you may find yourself among today, you don’t mind getting a negative answer. That’s where your natural salesmanship and the responses you’ve taken care to prepare kick in.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re the bright one with all the crazy notions today, which is a very good person to be. Money can’t buy ideas. Ideas come first, and the money can’t help but follow.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The world reads you like a poem today; your emotions seem compressed into brief bursts of language. Everyone knows how you feel and responds.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ve heard many warnings in your lifetime and know better than to give all equal credence. There are those around you who have cried “wolf” too many times to be taken seriously.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Beauty relies on freshness. It’s never the same twice. That’s why beauty must be searched for and can’t be hoarded, though it’s fun to try. You’ll take pleasure today in collecting pretty sights.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. The giving extends throughout the year as you continually deliver, even when you have not been asked, what you know will be needed, wanted and perhaps appreciated. It is your deepest joy to give in this way. Unusual bonds are forged in March and June. Someone makes good on a debt to you in August. Cancer and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 22, 48, 7 and 19.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I’m a Sagittarius, and my co-workers don’t like me. I learned this when I read an email that was accidentally forwarded to me that included some snarky comments about me. When I confronted the sender of the email, my boss called a meeting of a few of the people involved. They apologized and I accepted, but I’m seriously thinking about trying to find another job. They think I’m pushy, bossy, selfish and loud. I think they are just intimidated because I have ideas and I’m not afraid to make things happen. What do you think?”

In many settings, your fire-sign boldness and passion are an advantage, but your ability to work in a group is also an essential part of your package, professional and otherwise. So before you start applying elsewhere, see whether you can’t take this upset as a challenge to gain some political savvy. Regardless of your co-worker’s motives or how far off base they may be, this is the perfect excuse to work on interpersonal skills that will serve you well beyond this situation. Start with some soul searching. Is there a grain of truth here, a behavior you could adopt or one you might curb? If you can turn this scene around, you’ll be invincible!

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Jason Aldean made tractors romantic in his hit song “Big Green Tractor,” his third No. 1 hit on the country charts. This Pisces chart topper was born when Mercury and Mars were in musical Aquarius and the moon was in the down-home sign of Cancer. Cancer moon people are known for their love of domestic life, as well as their patriotism.
