Your Weekly Horoscopes Are Here: March 8 – March 15

See what the stars have in store
If you celebrate your birthday this week:
   
Your Year Ahead
 
Occasionally, we’re all given the chance for professional triumph and this year it’s your turn.  Now that you’re better focused, you’ll increasingly resent anyone meddling with your self-directed fate.  Others are about to learn just how single-minded and demanding you can be – so different from your usual Piscean passivity.  You now pursue goals with an intensity that defies opposition.  What happens around your birthday only strengthens your determination.  With thought processes clear and precise, you should make a dazzling and lasting impression on others.  
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
Best Day:  Sunday 10th
 
There are times when you can count on others and times when you have to go it alone.  For now, focus on going solo.  This will turn a few heads, and you may probably encounter both support and envy.  You also find out who your true friends are.  As some may not prove trustworthy caution is advised, particularly in financial matters.
 
Taurus (April 21 – May 20)
Best Day:  Friday 8th
 
This week Mercury quietens down your social life, bringing a time for reflection.  The upside: your compassion increases.  The downside is it could be easy to play martyr, so unless the help you offer is unconditional, do nothing.  If a current relationship doesn’t satisfy, a more clandestine arrangement may seem tempting.  If so, handle with care.
 
Gemini (May 21 – June 21)
Best Day:  Monday 11th
 
Seems plenty of the population are at odds with each other just now. Some are overbearing, while others are hiding their heads in the sand.  Best advice: no one wants an uninvited opinion, even if it is good advice. This week’s Mercury retrograde brings unexpected upheavals.  Upsets, surprises, disruptions – anything’s possible.
 
Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
Best Day:  Saturday 9th
 
This week you may want to take your cue from retrograde Mercury to correct mistakes and reconcile differences.  You may want to resume studies or meet up with old friends.  Professionally, decide what truly drives you.  Freedom of thought and performance are essential.  If you’re still dissatisfied in a few weeks time, start circulating your resume.  
 
Leo (July 23 – August 23)
Best Day:  Sunday 10th
 
A backward moving Mercury isn’t pushing the work ethic right now.  It feels more inclined to book you in for pampering.  It seems you’ve found the release button on responsibility.  You’re freer to enjoy more time with loved ones.  Sort the aims that are worth pursuing from those that aren’t.  You might also enjoy throwing around ideas with like-minded souls.
 
Virgo (August 24 – September 22)
Best Day:  Wednesday 13th
 
At times, love may seem elusive but not everyone can meet your high expectations. Put someone on a high pedestal, and they’ll eventually fall.  At work, allow time to rest before launching into another major project.  At home, don’t worry too much if the generation gap feels like a chasm.  Disputes can be resolved with a mature approach.  Yours, probably.  
 
Libra (September 23 – October 23)
Best Day:  Thursday 14th
 
Every now and then we have complications we don’t really want to deal with, and more recently Librans have developed a knack of dropping them in the “too hard” basket. It’d be nice if life’s troubles simply slipped away, but chances are they won’t.  So perhaps it’s time to fall back into a routine and finish what you’ve started.  
 
Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)
Best Day:  Monday 11th
 
It’s said that timing is everything.  Being in the right place at the right time is often how we’re blessed with opportunities – especially when time is on our side.  Patient, unhurried individuals can wait for their desired outcomes. This week asks for that tenacity. With perseverance and a loving heart, all challenges can be overcome – your way.  
 
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)
Best Day:  Sunday 10th
 
Life can sometimes seem frustrating, especially when circumstances feel beyond your control.  Now is a time for quiet contemplation rather than hard work – grab a holiday if you can.  If relationships are an issue, trust that you’re not the one at fault.  You may need to give a partner or friend time to get themselves sorted.  
 
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20
Best Day: Thursday 14th
 
Cast off all your worries, Capricorn. Work, career and family have all been in a process of transformation – and it’s been a struggle.  Thankfully, any heavy feelings start to lighten.  This should help ease your overwrought mind. A thought-provoking Mercury offers fresh solutions to old problems.  Your life is up for restructure in the best possible way.
 
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
Best Day:  Monday 11th
 
This week’s task: reflection and correction.  This isn’t the time to push on blindly, especially as important decisions need to be made.  For many, this points to relationships that have fallen out of step.  If you love nest is feeling a tad tepid, reignite the embers or talk problems through – thoughtfully and truthfully.
 
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Best Day:  Saturday 9th
 
Few Pisceans are loners. Without the company of friends and family, life would seem empty.  So why would you suddenly take all this for granted?  There’s no denying that you should enjoy your triumphs, but be sure to share the rewards. Everyone around you has helped you to achieve your current success.  Bind those friendships tight.
