Today’s Horoscope: Thursday, March 5, 2009
Pisces February 19 – March 20
Tiger Woods is back in the game – the golfing game, as if you didn’t know. With the weekend coming up, you may want to consider planning something fun with friends. For weeks you’ve all talked about getting together but haven’t found the time to really do it. Rather than put it off one more time, go ahead and make the plans and then send out the invites.
Try: having a bacon, egg, lettuce and tomato sandwich
Aries March 21 – April 19
You can expect your partner to offer you constructive criticism. Your first response may be to go on the defense, but if you take what was said and match it up with who you really are, you may come to the conclusion that there is something to be said for your ready-aim-fire attitude. It’s not necessary to change completely, but you do need to think about making some adjustments.
Try: talking to yourself
Taurus April 20 – May 20
If you are having trouble deciding if these are the best of times or the worst, then perhaps you should just decide that today is the best of times. Even the Obama girls are finding that life in the White House can be the best of times: Meeting kings and queens, celebrities and athletes can be exciting. Today’s a great day to clean around the house while you mindlessly allow your problems to sort themselves out.
Try: taking pictures of nature
Gemini May 21 – June 21
You are about to discover the secret formula for your existence (think: Lance Niekro finally going back to baseball). If you’ve ever wondered why you are who you are and what experiences shaped you, then hold on to your seat. All your questions will be answered. Expect a deep memory to guide you through your moment of introspection.
Try: reading a bestseller
Cancer June 22 – July 22
In your quest to get what everyone else is getting, you continue to forget to look around at what others are offering. Take Disney, for example, with the lowest attendance in years, they are offering a seven-night stay for the price of four. And it is not just Disney who is offering great deals right now – everyone is, from your local retailer to the booksellers on the corner. All you have to do is stop looking straight ahead and use those sidestepping skills that all crabs have.
Try: not making your bed
Leo July 23 – August 22
You think you’ve seen all the ways that artists can create, and then another artist comes out with something that makes you wonder why you never thought of that. Your mission for today is to examine your life and the paths that you take and see the beauty that is available for you daily. As you examine your life today, look for ways that you can continue staying ahead of the pack.
Try: believing in something
Virgo August 23 – September 22
Jean Chatzky’s new book, The Difference, asserts that prosperity is a habit. Sounds a little like spiritual fluff, but if it can help pull you through this recession, then that’s what you should do – make prosperity a habit. It’s pointless to spend all your time talking about savings when you are still spending as if this were last year and jobs were plentiful. Make some compromises with yourself; if you can’t pay cash today, then don’t make the purchase.
Try: saying something if you see something
Libra September 23 – October 22
Even you must accept that not everything is under your control. Take Tracy Morgan, who left his apartment only to return and find out that a busted light bulb in his fish tank started a fire. You have to admit that sometimes you take the control issue a little bit too far and that it can cause problems. Today, allow yourself to surrender to someone else’s control, even it means keeping your mouth shut when you know the right answer.
Try: substituting white flour with whole wheat flour
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
Someone has been holding back on the good news (think: Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen, who got engaged in December and just now broke the news). Of course, your friend or family member wanted to keep it secret, but today all bets are off. On a personal level, you are feeling overwhelmed with the daily affairs you have to manage. Perhaps the good news will offer you a few moments of relief from the stress.
Try: reading the labels before you purchase food
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
Follow your passion today, even if it sounds a bit wacky. You may just develop such a calling for your passion that you quit your day job and take to the roads like Jeff Deck and Benjamin Herson, founders of the Typo Eradication Advancement League, who spend their time on the road correcting signs across America. Nothing beats going to sleep with a smile on your face.
Try: butter and pickles
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
Expect your emotional home life to continue in the same vein as yesterday. As long as you continue to shirk your personal responsibilities, nothing will go right for you. Yes, it’s true that karma has a way of keeping you chained down until you acknowledge the lesson learned. Take recent child-support delinquents – many of them found that when they started paying off their debts, their health improved as well. Just goes to show that turmoil creates disease in your life.
Try: measuring your IQ
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
You may see the loving side of a friend today, someone you thought would never show any kindness toward anyone. It will come as a surprise! Just remember that everyone has a little bit of both inside them (the good and the bad), and if your friend is willing to show you the good, then maybe things are looking up. Perhaps they will take a cue from Debra Naismith, a Texas rancher who rescues horses used in the production of Premarin (a drug that relieves symptoms of menopause).
Try: using olive oil to moisturize your chapped hands
