Horoscopes for March 4, 2014

By
From page B5 | March 03, 2014 |

Mark Twain said, “An American has not seen the United States until he has seen Mardi Gras in New Orleans.” The appetite-driven Taurus moon is a perfect match for this Fat Tuesday’s parades, beads, picnics, music, dancing, floats, king cakes and costumes of purple, green and gold.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re not trying merely to get ahead of the ball; you want to win the whole game! It’s a lot more work than you were expecting, but your energy is high today, so go for it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You appreciate it when people are friendly and helpful, but not to the extent that you have to wonder whether they’re up to something. You’re quietly on guard, alert to all of the possible ways things could go wrong.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Appearances will make a bigger than usual difference in the outcome of events. Dress to be respected, not to get attention. You’ll use your physical appearance to add constructively to the social and professional milieu.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You may wander far, and you’ll find what you’re looking for as you explore beyond your usual daily routines. Your comfortable state of mind makes you at home wherever you go.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Of course everyone treats their favorite people with special care, and life is easier for you when you are one of those special people. Because you’re so easygoing, people enjoy being nice to you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The things that rattle your nerves are not the same things that jangle the next person. Seek out people who can handle what bothers you, and do the same for them, and today’s problems will have a happy outcome.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll have your choice of paths and will be drawn to the one with the most potential for romance and mystery. This won’t include anything very funny or too practical, at least not today.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your psychic sense is strong, and you can tell almost immediately whether or not a situation is going to work. The key is in bailing as soon as possible when you get that “not” feeling, even if you have to take a minor loss.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll be the recipient of good fortune and surprise bonuses, but you’ll also pay a pretty penny for the services you receive. So in the end, everything shakes out fair and square.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You have a valuable talent you’re not using. Maybe you don’t even know what it is. It’s like you’re walking around with a diamond in your pocket that you forgot about or didn’t know was there.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). People like being nice to you, so let them. Practice being a gracious receiver. It may be more difficult than it sounds, because you prefer to be in the position of giving. But receiving well is also a kind of gift.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are just trying to solve a problem and go on your merry way, but people are apt to confuse things by giving you too much information. Avoid this dynamic by asking people for the short version of the story.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Your attention is a kind of warmth that people want to snuggle up to. Give loved ones the best of your focus, and you’ll have a happy year. In the next seven weeks, you’ll complete a special project. May livens up your personal life. You’ll be developing a talent through June, which leads to heart connections. Capricorn and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 19, 4, 22, 7 and 15.

RETROGRADE ACTIVITES: Until Jupiter changes direction on the 6th, the skies will be ruled by three retrograde luminaries. As discussed yesterday, scrapbooking and letter writing are activities favored under these skies, and here are more ideas for taking advantage of the current retrograde.

• Bucket-listing. If you’ve never made a list of things you’d like to do before you die, the introspective energy of backward-flying Mars, Saturn and Jupiter makes this a perfect time to do so. Some will find the thought of a bucket list to be morbid, but how much more morbid would it be to come to the end of life full of regret for all that was left undone? Just as list-making helps people keep their lives organized, bucket-listing helps to organize a life around key ideas we have as to what makes up a life well lived.

• Cataloging a collection. Forward-moving planets are better for adding to a collection, but as most collectors know, there is more to collecting than the thrill of the find. The best collections are rich in context. The pause of a retrograde cycle allows for deeper appreciation of what you have. Labeling items, chronicling the relevant facts and history, and finding the best presentation style are all favored activities.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Victoria’s Secret angel Erin Heatherton has bridged the career gap between model and actress with roles in the movie “Grown Ups 2″ and the television series “The League.” There’s more to come for this Pisces born with three planets in ambitious, business-minded Capricorn. With Mars and Jupiter in the fiscally oriented Taurus, Heatherton has the natal chart of a mogul.
