Horoscopes (March 8-15) 

ARIES (March 21- April 20):

You worry too much about making ends meet. It sucks the life out of you and it makes it nearly impossible for you to connect with the flow of energy that creates abundance. Everyone's hip to the fact that joy is the key to prosperity. You could go places if you could stop thinking of pain and effort as the two primary keys to success. On other fronts, there are choices to make. Don't let your Puritan ethic lead you to believe that this has to be hard. Find a way to understand that life can be easy and everyone can win the minute we decide to let ourselves see it that way.

TAURUS (April 21 -May 20):

To really be able to deal with this you need to disengage enough to be objective to it. Nothing is ever wrong unless we make it so. You keep looking at things with the idea that something is in need of correction. It never works to judge your experience. With this in mind it might be time to start allowing yourself to be OK with whatever isn't working. And you might ask yourself, "How do you know?" Because the truth about life is that it is all good. And right now, in order to restore things to balance you've got to be able to accept everything that's going on, unconditionally.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20):

You've come a long way. Looking back over the last few years it's been like some sort of initiation. If you are willing to continue to maintain the same level of honesty that you're working with now, the next few months will reward you with more than one opportunity to get some mileage out of all the effort you've expended. Don't be afraid to develop something of your very own and don't let anyone tell you that you can't make it work. You'd be surprised what will work for you right now. Watch for signs and be open to offers of help and support.

CANCER (June 21-July 20):

The best you can do is stay in the moment. Too much of what's going on with you has to do with getting too far ahead of yourself. Any plans that are in place are always subject to change. The reason you're nuts to be projecting too far into the future is because anything can happen. Murphy's Law is the order of the day. Luckily it works both ways, so if things fall flat or fizzle out, don't be too quick to make it wrong. It could very well be that whatever comes undone opens the space for you to take some time off and get a leg up on things that truly matter to you.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 20):

You can't allow yourself to close yourself off to things. The tendency to withdraw into your ivory tower only works when you're hiding from whatever it is that makes you feel unappreciated. For many of you, there's a touch of snobbism to this that doesn't resonate at all with who you really are inside. You've got to step out a bit more and allow yourself to mingle long enough to remember that you're just like everyone else, and that it's your job to shine your light and express yourself even when others are too deaf, dumb, and blind to get the picture.

VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20):

You could make things easier if you weren't so hung up on getting everything right. So many of you function under the impression that you can fix what's broken by keeping the surface polished. Everything grows from the inside out; if anyone knows this, you do. You've got to find a way to settle up with the inner you before the outer stuff can begin to look anything like you want it to look. Others are giving you a hard time about the whole issue of getting real — and what all of this suggests is that it's time to re-center yourself and get clear that it's OK to be you.

LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20):

An old friend, or an older companion, or relative has a lot of good advice for you now. Don't let pride or convention stop you from getting back in touch. You have too much at stake to worry about how it might look if you show any sign of weakness. Those close to you can't be objective. Sometimes the only way to heal yourself is to let down your guard and allow the deeper part of you to reach out and admit that you don't have the answer. Others are more than willing to share but you need to be willing to get over yourself before they deign to let you in on their secrets.

SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20):

You've got to be careful. In going out of your way to press onward and upward you need to be sure that you're up to speed with the rate of change. In some cases, you need to know that you're with the right people — because any false move on any front will weaken your ability to proceed from a clear foundation. The security of things is an issue. For now you've got to stay put long enough to get a toe-hold on who you're with and/or what you're doing. Look at all of it and give yourself time to let the inner you be the one to tell you how far and how fast you're ready to go.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20):

Put your fears to rest. Nursing them any longer than you have to will only make things worse. The thought that you've got to bow down to the will of fate, or to anyone's will but your own has you convinced that you are powerless to do anything but cave in. If you really want this, and if it's in your highest good to have it, after a period of waiting it will be yours. Before that can happen you need to stop rewinding and repeating the same story and begin to act in a way that allows others to back off enough to see that they have nothing to gain by putting you down.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20):

Give yourself time to settle up, down, or in and give yourself enough room to stretch beyond the limits of the ordinary. If it sounds impossible, it isn't. You're entering a period where you need to find a way to balance your freedom needs, with your security issues. It won't be too hard to do once you understand that what makes you feel safe has to make you feel free, and vice versa. Check out your life and watch the ways in which you could turn what's going on right now into more of an adventure. The box has gotten too small. Stretch your limits. Draw new boundaries.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20):

What do you want out of this? It's time to get clear. The truth may be very different for you than it was a year ago, so don't use the old frame of reference to figure out where you are. At rock bottom, you've undergone some sort of process that has rearranged all of your perceptions. Hanging on to the idea that you have to make things right, or allow pride to dictate your choices and behavior keeps you from getting in touch with what your spirit needs more than anything. If there are hatchets to bury put them to rest and get on with the business of reinventing yourself.

PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20):

You can go one way or another. The less complicated you make this, the better. You've have so many decisions to make don't add to your pressure by dreaming up even more options. Before you do anything, consider the need to take care of yourself first. Don't be too quick to believe that you've got to turn yourself inside out to keep up with your life. Nothing works that way — and it seems to me that you need to step out of your traces and go far enough away from all of this to see exactly where you fit into it. From a different vantage point everything will be clear.
