PhePhe on Astrology
Today’s Horoscope: Tuesday, March 3, 2009
Pisces February 19 – March 20
With the recession in full force and layoffs coming faster than the mind can absorb them, is there any wonder that the crime rates are rising around the nation? Just think about Nicky Hilton, who was shoved to the ground after leaving an IHOP. But there’s no need for you to worry about your safety, provided you keep your eyes open and your wallet hidden. Remember that you shouldn’t waste your energy worrying about something you can’t change.
Try: opening the window and letting some fresh air in
Aries March 21 – April 19
Your emotional well-being is at the forefront of your day. You may find yourself revealing something very personal to strangers (think: Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer of True Blood revealing to the crew that they are in a relationship) just because you are tired of holding on to the secret. Romance and flirtations are likely today, and you may find yourself surrounded by children.
Try: getting in shape for the summer
Taurus April 20 – May 20
Your mood is flying high today, and you definitely aren’t feeling obligated to do more than just relax. That’s great – take the time necessary to break free from any restrictive situations. Having always been an idea person, you will find yourself coming up with marvelous ideas that will have everyone exclaiming what a genius you are. Remember that you got to this place of great moments not because you are the fastest thinker or even super-clever, but because you won’t allow yourself to get distracted from your goals.
Try: boiling potatoes
Gemini May 21 – June 21
Six series currently on television will be returning in the fall for another season (Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, 90210, Smallville, Supernatural, America’s Next Top Model). Today you may find yourself competing for a position at work. You will triumph but only with careful thinking on your part (just keep remembering that the only reason the above shows were renewed was that the public gave them approval).
Try: replacing your computer
Cancer June 22 – July 22
After working for the New York Post for 33 years, gossip columnist Liz Smith was let go because of the paper’s economic circumstances. Today, you may be feeling as if the world is against you, but you have to remember that it’s not personal. In your case, there are negative circumstances at play at work, and you must work through them. If necessary, plead your case and allow the other side to present his or hers, and then try to come up with a solution that works for all parties. Do whatever works, to make certain that
you don’t end up like Liz Smith.
Try: organizing your cabinets
Leo July 23 – August 22
You find that most people either hate you or love you. Hopefully, you look at this in the same way as Rachael Ray, who admits that she’s okay with people both loving and hating her. Rather than focusing on the haters, keep focusing on what works. You hold the cards to your life, and the least of your problems is worrying about other people’s feelings. Perhaps you can stop pointing out others’ shortcomings and, instead, look in the mirror and acknowledge that you have a few faults. The haters just may have a reason to hate.
Try: going for a walk
Virgo August 23 – September 22
For weeks now, you have been dwelling on the past and making things more complicated than they should be. Perhaps you should take a cue from Andy Richter (who will be joining Conan O’Brien as the new announcer of the Tonight Show in June) and go back to the familiar. This is a great time to attend to details rather than worrying about the past, which can’t be changed. Patience should be your keyword today.
Try: eating more fruit
Libra September 23 – October 22
It’s hard to believe that Lil’ Wayne is a Libra man when you look at his long history of arrests (think: An alleged gun found on his tour bus in 2007). Libras are all about balance, yet you and Lil’ Wayne are finding it harder and harder to balance your lives in accordance with the stars. Today, rather than denying your intuition, you may want to tune in and follow what your mind is telling you to do. Stop being indecisive and just do what needs to be done in order to bring the balance back to your life.
Try: substituting mustard for ketchup
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
Audrina Patridge is fighting back – she posted the surveillance tape of her home being burglarized on her blog in the hopes that someone would recognize the thieves. That’s your mission for today, dear Scorpio: Rather than accept what is doled out, you must stand up and fight back. Anyone who has ever dealt with you should know that revenge is part of who you are – and that you will patiently wait for the right opportunity to pay back those who have opposed you.
Try: using a neti pot
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
When life hands you lemons, you make the sweetest lemonade. And when you are handed lemonade, you make it into sorbet. You and George Clooney could learn a lot from each other, as you both believe in causes; his latest is the situation in Darfur, and yours is getting through this period of hardship. The two of you also know that the easiest way to get your opinion heard is to take it to the top (think: Clooney skipping the Oscars to meet with the president), so the question for you is what are you waiting for?
Try: choosing a mantra
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
Creativity is the highlight of your day. Like Jade Goody, you understand that it’s imperative to get busy living (think: She’s living her final days on this earth in front of a camera) or get busy dying. Focus only on today and you will find that everything you need has been put in place for you to succeed on your spiritual journey. There’s no need to question or analyze; just accept what is before your eyes. You can do it; you are a winner.
Try: french fries and hot dogs
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
You are feeling romantic today (think: Adriana Lima and Marko Jaric marrying on Valentine’s Day), but you aren’t certain what you should do about it. Rather than just sending flowers, why not spend a moment writing a good old-fashioned letter that captures what your heart is feeling? Things will work out nicely for you tonight. Today you shouldn’t overspend; even if the price sounds right, take 24 hours to decide.
Try: getting your eyes checked
