PhePhe on Astrology
Today’s Horoscope: Thursday, March 19, 2009
Pisces February 19 – March 20
You may need to use your imagination. Today’s one of those lazy days where even the most mundane task will have you cringing. You may be less energetic than normal. It can probably be attributed to lack of sleep, but if it continues, you should make a concerted effort to eat right and exercise more.
Try: understanding your kids better
Aries March 21 – April 19
Be aware of rumors in the workplace. Your best option is to talk with people to get a feel for what is and is not true. In this manner you can strengthen your position and give your bosses the impression that you are the hardest worker in the office. If that doesn’t work, trying focusing on someone less fortunate than you and you’ll soon realize that your life isn’t so bad after all.
Try: improving your conversational skills
Taurus April 20 – May 20
You can either go for stability and security or you can allow your ego to get in the way. Conflict isn’t something that you like, but today you may experience a couple of moments where you just want to tear your hair out. Don’t, because tonight someone may very well erase all the tension that you’ve been carrying around.
Try: setting up a budget
Gemini May 21 – June 21
Life is all about change nowadays. Regardless of how you institute that change, you have to make a concerted effort at expanding your mental horizons. No idea is too crazy to consider – take London, which now uses cardboard cops to patrol public spaces. Sounds weird, but it’s working. You want to share your feelings with everyone around you, but understand that many people feel put off when you dominate the conversation. You should spend equal time listening as well as talking.
Try: shopping in a thrift store
Cancer June 22 – July 22
When people hear the words, “If you see something, say something,” most immediately assume it means anything involved with terrorism. However, that’s not the case for you. You may find yourself on the other end of the phone reporting domestic violence, child abuse or even just a suspicious character. Follow your conscience and don’t let fear stop you from doing what is right.
Try: learning a new sport
Leo July 23 – August 22
Dressing for success is something that you love to do. Since you enjoy being a pioneer of new trends, you want to check out the latest trend, which is nothing more than a sleeping bag with arms and feet – except this one is worn during cold weather. The need is there; otherwise, the items wouldn’t be selling faster than hotcakes. You may find yourself hanging out with some coworkers today for lunch. Take a moment to join in and you may learn some shocking secrets.
Try: riding a train
Virgo August 23 – September 22
Today will have you switching from worrywart to confident detailer, so break out your calendar and make note of the fact that Prince will be performing on the Late Show with David Letterman. You may feel the pressure to rush through a decision today. Unfortunately, the words rush and you are rarely used together in the same sentence. However, a relationship will either thrive or end based on a decision that you make today, so hurry before the other party gives up and moves on.
Try: cooking a romantic meal
Libra September 23 – October 22
Because it takes you longer than most to make up your mind, people think you are aloof. It’s just that you don’t like offending anyone. That’s too bad because constructive criticism goes a long way, especially when it can help someone else. Take Simon Cowell – the media vilifies him for his brutal honesty, but his method works. The sweeter moments sound great, but their insincerity just can’t light up a room. Today if you do nothing else try to be honest instead of diplomatic.
Try: making a gingerbread house
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
Sometimes it’s hard not to look a gift horse in the mouth – especially when you feel that you are right. Jay Leno has promised Detroit a free concert for the unemployed. Well, Councilwoman Martha Reeves believes he should change the location from a small suburb outside of the city to the city itself. Keep your opinions to yourself today; there’s no need to rock a boat just because you want to shine. Even if you are 100 percent right, it can backfire and somehow come back on you.
Try: learning how to swim
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
With the appearance of extra money, you are probably thinking of taking a small trip. Traveling may be something that you and yours could use to rekindle a lost romance or even keep the fires burning. Now is the time to go! Many companies are offering trips for 75 percent off the usual price. You may want to take along a book today and catch up on your reading.
Try: figuring out what you need
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
A nice salary increase or bonus is possible today. You may want to consider investing your money with a company with values that mirror your own. That’s hard to find these days, but it’s not impossible.
Try: eating something different
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
Things may feel topsy-turvy in your life at this moment, because Venus is in retrograde. The good news is you took the safe path when it came to your career choices, but you are starting to feel reckless and just a little bit bored with the same old, same old. You could do the unthinkable and join the 5.1 million people drawing unemployment, or you could just wait out the day. The hurdles that are in your way can be moved.
