Today’s Horoscope: Friday, March 6, 2009
Pisces February 19 – March 20
Thanks in part to the stimulus bill, Americans should start seeking about $65 more per month in their paychecks. It’s too bad that the money isn’t already in your pocket, because you have more people to please than ever before. Instead of trying to be all things to all people, you are going to have to pick and choose whom you can help. Don’t feel bad if you have to say no – the word is being used a lot more in these trying times.

Aries March 21 – April 19
It seems that no matter what Michelle Obama wears, someone else wants to wear that same piece. Thanks to Beamon, her jeweler, Target will be carrying an entire line of the first lady’s replicas. You can take note that some of the things that you own are being coveted by others. Rather than continue to steal the show, you may want to consider offering advice on how others can dress for success.
Try: savoring a cup of tea
Taurus April 20 – May 20
If some of your affairs aren’t in order, today is the day to address them. You may want to consider updating your will and making certain that in case of emergencies everything will run smoothly. Of course you could head to Shapiro’s legal Web site (he defended O.J. Simpson) and for a small fee have your legal papers drawn up and sent to you via e-mail or snail mail. Give yourself a deadline for getting everything sorted out.
Try: mixing seltzer water with juice to create a healthy soda
Gemini May 21 – June 21
It appears that no matter how many times you’ve apologized for a past transgression, no one wants to let you forget it. You may feel that your life is similar to Jane Fonda’s (think: Hanoi Jane, the anti-war protester) who was greeted outside a Broadway theater by a group Vietnam Veterans protesters. You can’t let things get you down – if you apologized and the apology was accepted then keep moving toward your future and allow the aggrieved party to stay in the past.
Try: vacuuming your house
Cancer June 22 – July 22
Facing the truth is harder for some than for others. Take the recent attack of a Connecticut woman by a pet chimp, which has the country rushing to change the federal law on purchasing primates. We all know that if something’s wild by nature, nothing can change it. Today, you won’t need much encouragement to realize when you should walk away. That’s the beauty of being a crab – you can always withdraw into your own shell when things get bad for you. Just remember that the truth does, in fact, set you free.
Try: making s’mores for dessert tonight
Leo July 23 – August 22
Today, while you are holding that pity party for one, you might want to consider that there are people worse off than you. It’s been reported across the country that people are holding off on health care to pay rent, and the shame of it is that health care should be a given. Go ahead and have yourself a good cry – there’s nothing wrong with that, but set a time limit on how long you plan to suffer and stick with it. Nothing is worse for a lion than to show weakness.
Try: having your eyes tested
Virgo August 23 – September 22
Happy endings are in store for you today. Just like TV star Jane Goody (who has weeks left to live), you can expect to experience a moment of pure joy. Romance takes a front seat while your career will be placed on the back burner. Don’t fret, it’s just one day of joy, and tomorrow you can get back to the grind and work double the amount of hours you normally put in.
Try: personalizing your own M&M’s
Libra September 23 – October 22
The last bag of candy sold before Woolworth’s closed its doors was sold on eBay for $21,000. Talk about having a sweet tooth. Today, you may experience intense cravings to return to a bad habit, but if you use your willpower, you may be able to stave them off. Remember that you are in control and also the reasons why you stopped indulging. If you can put off the cravings, you will have triumphed.
Try: a game of Monopoly
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
After eight years, Chandra Levy’s killer may be charged with her death, which ruined a California congressman’s career after it was disclosed that he had been having an affair with her. Today, you can expect the unsolvable to be solved and things to be put to rest. Don’t be surprised, however, if you find yourself apologizing for accusing the wrong person.
Try: making a snow angel
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
With more and more athletes becoming national embarrassments, it’s a wonder that anyone would believe that there could still be some honest ones left. Take heed, today there will be questions coming at you from your supervisors. Address the issues as briefly as possible and only answer those questions that need answering.
Try: eating soybeans
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
With all of Michael Jackson’s legal/financial woes, you would think the king of pop would be ready to retire. But recent reports say that Jackson is in talks with concert promoters to perform up to 30 live shows next year, netting him a cool $215 million. Not bad, considering his eccentric behavior in recent years. Questions may arise today on whether or not you can make things work out again. Take heart – if Michael can do it, you can do it even better.
Try: making a hot toddy tonight
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
Today, nothing will surprise you, not even the $1,000 cocktail being served by the Hudson Library Bar in New York or the 11-year-old Pennsylvania boy who killed his father’s pregnant fiancée. You may experience issues with someone who will most likely drive you to drink today. Rather than getting upset, just tell the person that you aren’t in the mood for antics. Expect a gift this evening.
Try: eating more oranges
