Horoscopes for March 12, 2014

By
From page B5 | March 12, 2014 |

The events of the day won’t feel epic or life changing, and yet there will be fun pops of interest as the Leo moon plays cosmic street performer to Neptune, Venus, Uranus and Pluto. Each planet has a different reaction to the entertainment, and we will follow suit, laughing, crying or applauding the day’s drama.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Everyone needs some degree of certainty about life, and you usually need less than others. That’s why it’s hard for you to understand why someone close to you seems to long for you to behave predictably.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The reason people sometimes tease those they like in a special way is because it is easier to elicit irritation than affection. The one who pays attention, even if that attention is annoying, is crushing on you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You can tell quite a bit about people by the way they put themselves together, but it’s nothing compared to what you learn when you hear them speak. As your sign mate Ben Jonson said, “Speak that I may see thee.”

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Looking back on this day, the obvious best part will be the inspired folly you endeavor with a friend. So when someone says, “Want to come along?” join in the fun.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Passion is a flash pot – surprising, surging bright and disappearing just as quickly as it came. Bonded, committed love takes longer to catch on, and it burns longer, too.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’d rather quietly observe today than express yourself. You’re not trying to exercise great self-control or to weave a mystery, for that matter, but that’s the effect as you focus on studying others.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When you can’t seem to figure out how to get what you want in the moment, it won’t be smart to stick around and try different tactics. Instead, remove yourself, get some perspective and come back.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You know more now than you give yourself credit for. You’ve learned the most from the hard situations you’ve been in, though some of that learning still needs to be claimed. Own your experience.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll have your choice of friends and allies. If you choose someone with a strong work ethic, you’ll build something together. If you choose someone with a strong pleasure ethic, you’ll enjoy life together.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You are not afraid of making mistakes and prefer to make your own. That is why you can hold back from offering advice when people so obviously need it but won’t ask for it and likely would only be annoyed by it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). In order to be creative – and you will need to be creative in order to solve today’s problems – the two sides of your brain must work together. Read out loud to get the hemispheres communicating.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You get the feeling that you are being given a choice in what you do, but that the choice is one of default. You want to shake whatever controls are on you. Good news: You will only be manipulated insofar as you permit it.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. In the next seven weeks, you’ll beautify your home surroundings and get organized. You’ll be ready for the demands of May, which are all positive opportunities to increase the flow of love and money through your realm. Much good comes of focusing on what you love most and excluding all that distracts you from that. Capricorn and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 22, 14, 9 and 1.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: In response to a question about the meaning of birthmarks, the reading continues . . .

”Seven of (my moles) are small dark moles.”

Moleomancy, also called moleosophy, is a divination technique based on types and placements of birthmarks. While not as popular as astrology, palmistry, tarot reading and the like, moleosophy has nonetheless been practiced in many different cultures throughout the ages. In some of those philosophies, moles are considered marks of karma or scars from a past life. For instance, one who had a past life as a warrior who was injured or killed by a sword to the abdomen might, in this life, have a birthmark over the place of injury. If the injury was sustained in an act of nobility, the mark is a kind of badge of courage. If the injury was a result of victimization, the mark represents a wound that is to be healed, forgiven or perhaps avenged.

It is commonly believed that the more prominent birthmarks represent more significant karma, as well as secret powers, talents and spiritual resources.

As for your seven small dark moles, much depends on placement. More on this tomorrow.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Dynamic Pisces diva Liza Minnelli is one of the many stars of “And the Oscar Goes To . . . ,” a documentary about the history of the Academy Awards. This Hollywood and Broadway legend applies the high energy of her Mercury and Venus in powerhouse Aries to the task of maintaining an ambitious and constant concert and appearance schedule.
