In the Stars
Your Horoscope: Friday, March 19, 2010
-Margaret Santangelo and Kitty Raymond
Pisces: Feeling a little pressured? That’s to be expected: Someone is trying to wheedle, guilt-trip, or strong-arm you into falling in line with what they want. The solution is to simply step out of this person’s sphere of influence; if you keep your distance, they won’t be able to manipulate or control you.
Aries: Friday is a day of rest and renewal for you, Aries, as the vernal equinox approaches. With the coming of spring, you begin a new annual cycle feeling rejuvenated and ready to take on the world. Take stock of what you’ve learned and how you’ve grown in the past year, before your latest life adventure kicks off.
Taurus: Forget six degrees of separation—at the moment, you feel there’s a line of communication that leads directly from you to people on the other side of the world. You don’t have final say over the course of global events, but you can strive to influence them in your own small way, and that energy will snowball.
Gemini: Right now, you have a powerful message to impart, which can be transmitted through actions as well as words. The way you conduct yourself throughout the day speaks volumes to what you are trying to get across to the people around you—so dispense with any hollow gestures, and make each moment count.
Cancer: There’s a fine line between taking your significant other’s needs into consideration, and letting him call the shots. If you feel that someone you love is bossing you around, don’t stand for it. Firmly make it clear that you are your own woman and insist on receiving the same level of respect you give—or you’re outta there.
Leo: Lionesses are likely to lie low on Friday, as you gear up for Saturday’s vernal equinox, when the sun enters Aries. Your energy may be ebbing now—or even running on empty, as winter has taken its toll on your immune system as well as your spirit. But when spring officially arrives, you’ll get a major energy boost.
Virgo: Tightening your purse strings is a top priority now, but you have to let yourself have some fun. Make a list of a few key “little things” that allow you to enjoy life without breaking the bank. Indulging in these, in moderation, will help keep you from making a regrettable splurge on something that doesn’t mean as much.
Libra: It’s time to come out from under the shadow of someone who has a great deal of influence and authority in your life. That’s not to say you need to utterly reject this person’s teachings—just that you can respect his or her wisdom while forming your own opinions, some of which may be conflicting.
Scorpio: A difference of opinion could turn into a battle of wills if you let the debate rage out of control. Try to put your ego aside, and overcome the desire to declare one person the winner of the argument. A passionate conversation can be satisfying in itself, regardless of who ends up getting the last word.
Sagittarius: As spring approaches, your inner child emerges. There’s a lighthearted, playful quality to your mood now, and you have trouble sitting still long enough to take care of grown-up responsibilities. Give yourself a break and carve out time for a little frolicking—after a long winter, you deserve some purely fun “me time.”
Capricorn: It’s frustrating trying to get someone to come around to your point of view. But you’re convinced you know best and determined to talk sense into someone who can’t seem to grasp his or her own best interest. Remember, you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink.
Aquarius: Ever open your mouth to say something and realize that what comes out sounds just like something your parents would say? Right now, your point of view may be strongly influenced by an influential figure from your past. Simply recognizing this will help you find your own voice.
