Daily Horoscope | March 12th 2014
Today, you want to go with the flow, but your inner voice gives you reason to keep your guard up. Your instincts are spot-on, Aries, so do a little digging. The current circumstances don’t warrant pushing the panic button, but there is an element that could use some tweaking. Catching it early is key to prevent it from snowballing into a real (and messy) situation. Speak up now even if it doesn’t win you any popularity contests. Later down the road, people will be grateful for your foresight.
You can’t hurry love, Taurus. Under today’s stars you could be anxious to advance a relationship into a serious status. Walk before you run. Trust doesn’t happen overnight, so tap on the brakes and let things evolve naturally. In time, you’ll know one way or the other if this person can go the distance with you. That said, now is a good time to learn more about your amour’s ambitions for the future. Should you have aspirations to retire to an organic family farm, but this person wants to hunker down in a bustling cosmopolitan hotspot, you’ll need to strike a compromise or leave this one in the friend zone.
Rules and restrictions rile up your rebellious streak today, Gemini. While you’re compelled to stir the pot, you don’t need to lead a full-on revolution to get the excitement you crave. Ask questions with a philosophical bent to get people thinking outside of the box. Gentle persuasion works best under today’s stars. Hitting them over the head with the answers, however, or using shock tactics could cause people to dig in their heels. Easy does it.
Inner beauty is what makes the outside package sparkle and shine. Today’s Mercury-Saturn square could throw you a curveball and ignite an unlikely attraction. Yesterday, you didn’t look twice at you-know-who, but today, you can’t get enough of that raw magnetism and the synergistic conversation. Keep the sizzling vibes alive, and boldly make a dinner date for tonight. Also, use this energy to uncover more of your own complexities. Physical beauty may be skin deep, but Cancers certainly aren’t.
Projection alert! Someone could misdirect mommy or daddy issues onto you, Leo. Keep your wits about you so can recognize when people’s emotional curve balls are everything about their own issues and nothing to do with you. In other words, keep your superwoman cape in the closet—this issue is NOT yours to fix. Your generous spirit may find it difficult to walk away, so feel free to lend an ear, a sympathetic hug, or give a pep talk. Just don’t get sucked into a blame game—especially if it paints you as the guilty one!
Hold your fire! While you’re justified in being upset at the sparse level of support others have provided lately, refrain from launching a diatribe outlining every sin committed against you. Blowing up will only keep people at arm’s length, and is that what you really want? Even if they’ve let you down, everyone deserves a second (or third) chance. Encourage dialogue and nurture a warm connection, and others will do as you please… and with pleasure! You know what they say about catching flies, Virgo.
With fashionista Venus as your ruling planet, you wear your style on your sleeve—literally. Today, shop around for vintage pieces that with an intriguing history. Whether it’s a set of Depression glass dessert plates, handmade lace slips, or broken in cowboy boots, a treasure hunt provides the perfect stress-busting diversion today. It’s a funny thing, Libra, when you take your mind off the situation that’s vexing you the right answer flows right in. When it comes to romance, take a serious second look at that person who’s loyal and loving instead of those prospects best saved for fly-by-night flings.
Remember your roots, Scorpio. When it comes to must-have qualities in a friend, loyalty ranks high on your list, and most of the time you have no trouble reciprocating. Under today’s stars though, an exciting new group could captivate you, causing you to put your tried-and-true crew on the backburner. We’re not saying that your old amigos should be included in all your escapades, but they deserve the courtesy of being informed about changes to upcoming plans. Avoid last-minute cancellations, except if it means missing out on a life-changing opportunity.
Spreading yourself too thin, Sagittarius? Curious Mercury in your third house of community triggers your impatient streak when it comes to launching a fresh project or advancing a fledgling friendship. Hit the pause button, and assess how much time you really have at your disposal. Do you have any loose ends to tie up? Are your bonds with your closest friends stable? Taking on something (or someone) new could pile one too many things on your plate, so don’t rush into additional responsibilities. Time management is key to tending to both the old and the new.
When it comes to shared resources or responsibilities, is everything fair and square? Today’s cosmos shine a light on any inequities, and encourage you to aim for equilibrium. If people are dragging their feet, ask them to pull their weight. If it’s a case of not being able to contribute financially, be creative in drumming up ways they can help out, from working the barter system to sharing their special skills. Have YOU been doing your fair share, Capricorn? If you’re lacking the oomph to meet your obligations, pause your membership or even cut ties. You don’t want others to label you irresponsible, do you, Cap?
Careful: clashes with authority figures are likely under today’s stars. A dominant personality, probably a man, may get under your skin in a major way. It won’t take much for this button-pusher to get you hot under the collar. Saying anything in this agitated state could launch an out-and-out war. Time out, Aquarius. Instead of going head to head, retreat to your separate corners. Don’t underestimate the power of giving yourself a breather. It will allow you to cool down enough so that your next interaction will actually be respectful and productive.
Needy Nancy alert! Today’s Mercury-Saturn square calls for clear boundaries, something your sensitive sign struggles to set. But a demanding person is becoming a serious energy suck, and it’s up to you to put a stop to it. This doesn’t mean you should be cruel, but swooping in for the save only creates a dependency that harms both of you in the long run. Instead, give a morale-boosting pep talk, or direct them towards resources they can access independently. If your energy levels drop when you’re with this person, it’s a sign you’re going over and above the call of duty. P.S. Don’t forget about all the support that surrounds you—all you have to do is ask!
