Horoscope for the week of Mar 20, 2005
By Michael O'Connor

Tip of the Week:

Spring is officially here. I could have said technically because Spring Equinox is traditionally March 21 but this year the Sun enters Aries in the Tropical Zodiac on March 20, at 4:34 am Pacific Time. The Zero degrees Aries Point or Vernal Equinox point is very powerful both literally and symbolically. This is the day that sacred sights and chambers are activated by direct sun light. It is also symbolic of the waxing half moon and, of course the season of spring. Western Astrology pays great tribute to this sacred annual event; it is the foundation of the "Tropical Zodiac". This Astrology recognizes the powerful relationship between Sun, Earth and Moon. Call it real solar time. While Western and Eastern Astrology – Vedic - agree on the twelve constellations of the Zodiac, Vedic and other eastern systems of Astrology pay closer attention to the Precession of the Equinoxes. This is reason for the "Sidereal Zodiac". The Precession is a 26,000 year cycle caused by a wobble in the Earth's spin on its axis causing a gradual shift that in turn makes the constellations appear to slip backward. To date the count is about 23 degrees behind the zero degree Aries Point alignment. There is much to say about the difference of the two systems and both have great merit and do work. Yet, the Sun is a great authority in our actual daily lives and the distant stars in the constellations are significant yet secondary. The Sun is the closest celestial expression of divine power as it is the giver and creator of our physical life. Glory Be - to our Sun! Happy Spring everyone.

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)

Spring is your time of the year! That Mercury turned retrograde on March 19 (3/19 – 4/12) is a sign of some unexpected surprises over the next few weeks at least and throughout the year to some extent, if it is retrograde when you have your birthday. This influence inclines towards proving oneself. Poor judgment and impulsive thinking are the culprits to avoid. Exercise patience with your sense of progress and scope of knowledge. You're beautiful just the way you are!

Taurus (Apr 21 – May 20)

Do you feel the pull to lay low for awhile? There are some indications that you do. This urge may clash with another side of you that feels bold, revolutionary and determined to shake things up. Ideally, you are on the verge of valuable self realizations and perhaps even artistic expressions of one kind or another. An 'all for one and one for all' attitude will see you through. Give your brain a rest and let inspirations rise from your heart.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)

Realizations about who you are and what you truly need and want are emerging in your mind. In some respects, you are unpredictable than ever these days. The classic contradiction is that you want both deep communion and plenty of freedom simultaneously – a loner yet needing social stimulation. Staying balanced and sensible with your thoughts and choices will require extra effort while Mercury is retrograde. Go for personal reform!

Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 21)

Authentic self-expression continues as a central theme. You are in a good position to forge ahead and taking the lead to set a new pace for yourself and others. Trusting what you already know is important now. There will be time to acquire new knowledge but this is not exactly it. Gaining new skills from hands on experience will probably prove much more satisfying and effective. Draw upon existing resources and creative expressions.

Leo (Jul 22 – Aug 22)

An exuberant and expansive mood is rising for you. A passion for people is about take a new twist. You want love, affection and romance and may break rules to get it if it is not readily available. A sudden yearning for adventure, travel and exotic culture is also a source of excitement. With Mercury retrograde, however, there is some caution in the air and it may not be wise to just throw it to the wind. How will you maintain your center as the temperature rises?

Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 21)

You are in a process of shedding old skins. These may be physical, mental or emotional or all of the above. Remembering that as a spiritual being you are more than these aspects of your personality will help. Your spirit is the Self that watches without judgment, fear or reaction. Rather, this witness is present in the moment and observing life with passive interest, curiously and, most importantly, faithful assurance that it exists beyond the personality. Take an experimental approach.

Libra (Sep 22 – Oct 21)

Improving the quality of your offering in some fashion continues. However, this week the momentum shifts to a much more engaging approach. With Mercury retrograde, be patient with your ability to share your new ideas. Perhaps you need to more fully digest them and proceed with what is more familiar for now. You will meet a more receptive audience in a month. For now, make contacts and set dates for that optimal time.

Scorpio (Oct 22 – Nov 21)

Wow, who substituted the gas for rocket fuel? Something is igniting in and/or around you. Interestingly, this includes a dreamy, imaginative and inspired creative desire to express. Revolutionary action of some kind is very likely. Exotic, exciting and colourful music comes to mind to match the mood. Acting independently and/or assertively to realize dreams is part of the plot. Trust your own flow now and invite but don't expect others to understand or engage.

Sagittarius (Nov 21 – Dec 20)

You are in a revolutionary mood. You are ready to take a creative lead demonstrate the creative leadership that runs in your veins. The funny thing is that you tend to take life too seriously, on one hand, and not seriously enough, on the other. The time has come to make some important choices and to at least get ready to take more deliberate action. Whatever is happening in your life, consider that you created it somehow. So, continue to co-create it now!

Capricorn (Dec 21 – Jan 19)

The warrior within has just sounded a battle cry. You are eager now to break on through to the other side. In certain respects, your perspectives and approach may be radical and excessive. However, you recognize that there is not very much sand left in the top portion of the hour glass. Balancing the contradictory desires to advance and to retreat requires creative consideration. This is a good time to begin one of those dream projects.

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)

Spring is here and you are in the mood to spring into action. Mars just entered your sign a few days ago and now the Sun is in Aries. This signifies an active period for you. Expect to take some unexpected initiatives over the next several weeks. Fortunately this phase includes a good measure of energy and enthusiasm. While it may be a good idea to sign important documents after Mercury goes direct, this is a good time to set intentions and take initiative.

Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

The time has come to assert a more dynamic momentum and to express a more confident style. While outer measures are important, it is at least as important to work inwardly. This includes identifying and clearing limiting beliefs. It is increasingly possible to do so thanks to the advances in psychology, yet most people continue to live according to limiting beliefs and self-concepts. Do some investigation to make changes inside and out!
