Forecasts for week beginning February 26, 2011.
By Jonathan Cainer
By the time we reach the equinox, on March 21, the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter and Uranus will all be in Aries. By early May, the Sun will have moved into Taurus but we’ll have Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Uranus in Aries plus the Moon for a brief while too. And Saturn will be directly opposite, in Libra. We’re talking here about zodiac signs, not constellations. We’re also talking about a time of innovation. In March, you can expect to keep finding new reasons to forget limits and laws that once seemed unbreakable. And there’s more change to come.
PISCES (February 20 – March 20)
You have won a lottery just by arriving on Earth. Surely, even if you now never see another miracle, you will have reason to count yourself lucky. Yet miracles can and do happen every day. Incredible coincidences keep taking place. We just fail to notice them because we have become obsessed with narrow, petty definitions of success. We want what we want and we don’t care about anything else. But in March, it’s going to become more clear than ever before that you are more fortunate than you know. Soon, you will become more fortunate still. Be grateful, not fearful, and life will bring many rich rewards.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20)
March is due to be a very good month. Not, perhaps, for everyone. But for everyone born under the sign of Aries, at least. That’s not to say, though, that you’re going to enjoy every moment of it. There’s sometimes a big difference between something that feels good and something that does you good. Indeed, things that feel good at first can sometimes end up making us feel rather bad. You may, soon, go through an experience that’s difficult. Tense. Challenging. But it may be the only way to arrive at an outcome that’s much desired and that generates a long-lasting glow of delight, relief and inspiration.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21)
Is that a little fairy, sitting on your shoulder? Or is it a guardian angel, hovering over your head? Maybe it’s a wish-granting leprechaun, an ancient Tibetan or a spirit guide from the medicine wheel. I can’t be sure which form your cosmic protection is due to take but it’s clear that, in March, something is going to be looking after you. You are being offered support, succour and sustenance, some of which may take a decidedly unambiguous physical form. I’m not promising miracles. There may be ups as well as downs. But the ups will be real. They will last much longer and prove far more important than the downs!
GEMINI (May 22 – June 22)
Strangely, we are brought up to feel that indecision is a vice. If we experience it, it must be because we do not know our own mind. That, they say, makes us weak and easily manipulated. So is it better to be assertively wrong than apprehensively right? Of course not! As you enter March, you have many options and choices. Most though, will disappear the moment you make your mind up and charge ahead once more. Some doubts deserve to be heeded. Some mysteries are far better left unsolved than swept aside by some glib explanation. You’ll profit if you permit yourself some uncertainty this month.
CANCER (June 23 – July 23)
The old song goes, “When you’re smiling, the whole world smiles with you.” If that were literally true, as long as just one human, somewhere on Earth, was happy we would all be smiling all the time. But in essence, it’s fair comment. Contentment is contagious. Enthusiasm is infectious. When we allow ourselves to relax and feel good, we somehow draw the right people and opportunities into our lives. That’s what you will do in March. If you think this unlikely because life, right now, seems to contain so little to smile about, please be aware that rapid change for the better is possible. Indeed, it’s inevitable!
LEO (July 24 – August 23)
You’ll get a little extra help, whenever you need it most this month. It may not arrive, though, until just in the nick of time. You will have to march into battle unarmed and just trust that whenever it’s really required you will be magically, instantly issued with the appropriate weapon. Does that sound too close for comfort? Well then, do nothing. Err on the side of caution. Avoid rising to any challenge that you don’t feel fully prepared for. That’s your prerogative. Really, though, if you show a little courage and allow for some spontaneous serendipity to enter your life, you’ll find you will make the most amazing progress.
VIRGO (August 24 – September 23)
Carl Jung, the great psychologist, once coined a new word. He wanted to talk about the way in which sometimes, we need something yet we do not truly understand what it is we need. Sometimes too, that thing “turns up” in our lives at just the right moment. Its appearance acts as a wake-up call. It provides a meaningful coincidence that makes us say, “Oh yes… NOW I see.” He called all this synchronicity. Many people, though, confuse it with serendipity – or lucky chance. With serendipity, though, there’s no lesson to learn. Your outlook for March promises plenty of synchronicity. Be willing to learn and you’ll get amazing help.
LIBRA (September 24 – October 23)
How hard it is for us to admit ignorance. How much we like to feel as if we are fully in control. How our opinions give us a sense of strength. How our fixed ideas buoy up our egos. Yet how our arrogant attitudes can separate us from other people. In March, if you replace strong expressions of certainty with displays of vulnerability, if you say less and listen more, if you concede uncertainty and seek advice, you won’t be demonstrating weakness, you’ll be emanating a real inner strength based on confidence in your own candour. That will definitely make you more attractive, to people… and to opportunities too!
SCORPIO (October 24 – November 22)
Do you deserve the sweet gift that life is due to offer you in March? Have you earned yourself a rewarding opportunity and a positive experience? It’s important that you answer yes to these questions. If you’re inclined to think, for some reason, that you aren’t entitled to something positive, you may fail to see the true value of your current chance. Worse, you may view it with unnecessary suspicion and thus undermine your own ability to take full advantage of a most encouraging new development. Don’t be hard on yourself. Don’t be negative either. Just trust that what’s starting to unfold is good.
SAGITTARIUS (November 23 – December 21)
Would you like something to think about, talk about and tie yourself up in knots with? Or have you already got quite enough of that? You are not exactly short of intricate details and fiddly little factors, all of which seemingly require constant concentration. It has been some while since you last felt safe enough to relax, take your eye off the ball and just enjoy life. It may, I fear, be some while more before you can have that pleasurable experience in any quantity. In March you should at least stop feeling as if you need to be vigilant 24/7, lest you miss a crucial development. First, things will stabilise. Then, they will improve.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 20)
If you are in prison, why is there a key in your hand? If you are not trapped, why can’t you move freely in any direction you care to? Because what’s holding you back is something far more constraining than any physical imposition. You’ve got a mental block. A sense of fear or duty – or helplessness that tells you a certain option is not open to you. But why is that the case? Can’t there be a renegotiation? Of course there can. You just have to decide what you truly want to be free of… and what it is you want to free yourself for! March brings you to that moment of realisation, of choice… and of opportunity!
AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 19)
Uranus returns this month to the sector of the sky that governs ideas, inventions and innovations. It popped briefly in and out of that part of your chart last year. Now your ruler begins a visit that will last for several years. You’re about to start feeling as if you’re really getting somewhere. You’re beginning a phase which offers you a real chance to make progress, to overcome old obstacles, to reach out to new people and alter habits of a lifetime. If you’ve been thinking, for a long while, about a plan or a possibility… or even if suddenly, this month, you come up with one… run with it! It could change everything for the better.
