Horoscopes for March 1, 2014

By
From page B5 | March 01, 2014 |

It’s the new moon in Pisces, which usually is a time to strike up the band and dance toward a dream. But with Mars going retrograde on the same day (and Saturn following suit tomorrow), it’s as though the marching band is wearing lead boots. Don’t let that dampen your spirit. The music still plays even if you happen to be dancing in place.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You are likely to treat anyone and everyone as though they were your sweet beloved favorite. This is a charismatic tone to be sure, and you’ll attract followers along your way.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It may feel that much is riding on one particular relationship, and this is not a good position to be in for anyone involved. The pressure is palpable. Try to diversify if you can.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll succeed if your results are consistent. In order to get consistent results, you will have to create systems that ensure them. Get help. Start with a proven method.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). What you’re doing is important and worthy of qualified help. Even if you think they will handle it appropriately, don’t pass an aspect of a project on to someone if that person doesn’t have a proven track record.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Maybe you’re not in the mood for storytelling, but you will have to let people know a little more about you if you want them to relate to you properly and appropriately.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You find it easy to carry on a conversation now, and your social prospects continue to open up. New friends will be air signs, meaning Gemini, Libra or Aquarius.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Pressure comes in unpredictable spurts. There’s an easy way to handle your stress level, though. Practice the first three things you’ll do when the pressure is on, and you’ll always be ready.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You have a strong need for variety, and so tasks that are too structured will not appeal to you. It will be better for you to say “no” fast than to say “maybe” and waffle.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Perfection is not an acceptable standard to set for yourself. You will rise much more quickly to the level you wish to achieve if you strive for consistent improvement instead.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). People want you to do well, and they are rooting for you to succeed. When you believe at a deep level that this is true, you will perform to the very best of your ability.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). No one is born harshly self-critical. It’s a learned response to the world, and if you can learn it, then you can unlearn it. Do what you can to sweeten the tone you use when you talk to yourself.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It’s no wonder your popularity keeps growing. You have a captivating way of expressing yourself even if the information you’re sharing is as simple as the weather.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You deserve pleasure as much as anyone else, so give yourself permission to live the life you’d be happy to see your loved ones living. In March, you’ll dust off your hands and declare, “Mission accomplished!” A lively stretch for your personal life begins in April. Something you wish for a loved one will happen in May. Libra and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 24, 1, 28, 34 and 17.

MARS RETROGRADE: Already annoyed at having to adjust to the polite societal expectations of the Libran realm, Mars, the warrior planet of the zodiac, stages his own rebellion, traveling backward through the territory he just bumbled through. He’s not happy in this part of the sky, and now he gets to review the specifics of what irks him about it. If you listen very closely, you may be able to hear him grumbling about why relationships are impossible, how it’s pointless to try to please people when everyone wants something different and how love is endless frustration. Of course, you don’t have to agree with him, but it will be mighty tempting to chime in on some of his more valid gripes.

The retrograde will last until May 19. We can turn this span into an extraordinarily positive moment for relationships by being open to the truth in our troubles. Yes, often people have to work to get along. If love is to be a graceful dance, the steps have to be learned. We don’t always feel like putting in the effort it takes, but it’s the mature thing to do.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Justin Bieber, the pop star who soared through his teens on platinum records, is entering his 20s with an arrest record. The year ahead will be a pivotal time in the life and career of this Pisces born under three artistic Pisces planets. His Scorpio moon adds the spice. Scorpio moon people like surprises and are constantly surprising themselves, too.
