Horoscopes for March 10, 2014

By
From page A7 | March 10, 2014 |

Mercury in Aquarius lines up to square Saturn in Scorpio, an aspect that will bust open news, spill secrets and cause a change in our choice of technology, friendship and communal activities. The tendency will be to over-think things, and it might help to ask, “What would be even easier and less involved?” Happiness is keeping it simple.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Someone near you has a secret, and that secret is, “I hurt.” It is, perhaps, the most universal secret there is. As you are feeling relatively good, you’re in the perfect position to help the situation.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Health and responsibility come before all else for you, and your life flows beautifully from these two values. There also will be time for fun, love, sharing and reveling in what most appeals to you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are not the cause of negative events, but you can still do something about them. Even if all you do is hold a hopeful, cheerful space inside yourself, you will be doing a lot.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Once you do the top important tasks on your list, you’ll feel gloriously free to use the day as you wish. Your best day happens when you tackle your list early on and get it out of the way.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Business is like a game. The equipment needed to move ahead will be as mental as it is physical. Use your knowledge of psychology to predict your opponent’s next move and counter it before it happens.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). An important event is coming up, and you’re not quite prepared for it yet. In order to be appropriately outfitted, you’ll need to do some shopping. Note that shopping isn’t always buying.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Just as you cannot cut well with a dull knife, you cannot work well if your skills are rusty. Take the time to sharpen them. Perhaps you won’t be paid for this immediately, but it will pay off in the end.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You cannot make another person happy, but you can provide an environment that welcomes happiness, and this you do expertly. Your efforts to serve those around you will be successful.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You will have a beautiful day as long as you know your boundaries, honor them and steer clear of those who are likely to ignore them and intrude. Love from a safe distance is still love.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Create positive images involving you being the person you want to be, living the life you want to live. It works for you now. As you sleep tonight, your brain will assimilate the messaging, moving you in that direction.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Much boils down to how you perceive the causes and consequences of events. Your resolve to see the pluses and advantages in each situation determines the win.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll be thinking about the distant future: where you’d like to live, the kinds of people you’ll know and how you will spend your time. There’s magic in the act of narrowing down your options.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. This year features stellar and varied companionship representing love in its many forms. You’ll step up your self-care and fitness commitment next month and enjoy a healthier perspective in April. A relationship that needs healing will turn around in May. Negotiate for better wages in June. Sagittarius and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 2, 11, 24 and 17.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I have birth marks in various places on my body. Seven of them are small dark moles. One on my left shoulder is called a cavernous hemangioma. It used to be large when I was an infant, and now it’s barely detectable. I also have what’s called a salmon patch on the back of my neck and head. My mother says I had a Mongolian spot on my buttocks when I was an infant, but I’ve grown out of that. My mother has one or two moles, and my father has none. Do you think it’s some kind of sign that I was born with so many skin irregularities?”

I do. Then again, I think everything is a sign. But you and I are not alone in suspecting that birthmarks have some kind of cosmic meaning. Divination by birthmarks, a.k.a. moleomancy, has been practiced by many different cultures through the ages. Here’s my reading:

The hemangioma on your left shoulder is the imprint of angels who finger-tapped you before your birth. This is a blessing that comes in the form of knowing what you want to do with your life at an early age. You have an ear for your calling. More on this tomorrow!

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Revlon cosmetic brand Almay recently named Carrie Underwood a brand ambassador and the fresh face exemplifying the brand’s positive beauty message. The accomplished and yet still relatable country music superstar was born when the sun and Mercury were in Pisces, indicating there is a strong intuitive guidance within her. Venus and Mars in Aries brings endless energy.
