Forecasts for week beginning March 24, 2012.

By Jonathan Cainer

We have seen a lot of auspicious omens in March. Further positive alignments await us in coming months. So we really should keep this week’s tense climate in perspective. Though Mars and Uranus form an antagonistic angle, we need not expect big dramas or sudden showdowns – just events and situations that look, at first, as if they might be about to lead to such developments. We might also expect problems that appear impossible, no matter how hard we try to solve them The key word here is ‘appear.’ The key to success, this week, is a calm, trusting mind!

ARIES (March 21 – April 20)
We love super heroes. We buy comics, watch TV shows and flock to the movies to see these characters using their special skills. We wish that we could fly too – or see through walls, or project balls of flame from our fingertips. Yet, often in those films there comes a moment when the hero is restricted. They cannot use their gift. They must act as ordinary mortals do. You can relate to that this week. When the going gets tough, there is a trick that you usually employ. You can’t do that now… but you can still do something else!

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21)
What does the call of destiny sound like? People who believe they have heard it rarely describe it as trumpets sounding. Instead they talk of a feeling in their heart – a prompt from within. They also describe a magnetic pull towards an idea or a course of action. You have been hearing such a call for a while now. Are you heeding it or resisting it? Change can be scary but this call is definitely inviting you make a wise choice and a bold move. Allow yourself to respond to it. A courageous choice on your part now could improve everything.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 22)
Sometimes we see a police car outside our house and we think, ‘Have they come for me? What have I done?’ We know that we are innocent but a wave of guilt and fear washes over us. Are you now looking at a situation in your life and wondering whether you have somehow caused it to come about? Are you at fault? Are you to blame? Is there something you must apologise or atone for? Perhaps there is. After all, none of us are perfect. But even so, you do not deserve to be accused or abused this week. Walk tall and all will be fine.

CANCER (June 23 – July 23)
Some people think that dreams have no relationship to the events of our waking life. Others read real meaning into the images they see while asleep. They feel they are a key to self-empowerment. If we can only understand what’s going on inside us, we can be clearer about what we want. This could make it much easier for us to fulfil our true potential. You are beginning to realise how a hope you once dismissed as unrealistic could prove feasible. This thought is both inspiring and intimidating. But you must trust your dreams.

LEO (July 24 – August 23)
Nothing lasts forever but some situations drag on for an awfully long time. We tend to assume they will never change. Yet the moment we adopt this attitude, we lose some of our ability to make a difference. That’s fine if we are happy with what we’ve got. But if we really would like to find freedom or success, we should never tell ourselves that this is unattainable. Don’t allow yourself to feel so disillusioned that you miss a real opportunity this week. It exists. Recognise it, seize it and you will start to shape a fine new future.

VIRGO (August 24 – September 23)
Most great ideas turn out to be easier in theory than they are in practice. You are now dealing with the practical consequences of an ambitious plan. Mercury, the ruler of your sign, is retrograde. This week it slips back into a sector of the sky that it left some while ago, causing you to reconsider a goal, a hope or an idea. You keep wondering why you ever made a commitment that is now proving so hard to uphold. You just need to adjust to the reality and pace yourself accordingly. You can yet make great progress.

LIBRA (September 24 – October 23)
You are sensitive. You are also extremely wise. This explains why your life is full of so many anomalies. Your emotions pull you in one direction whilst your intellect takes you in another. And your intuition? Well, sometimes, it cannot guide you as well as you might wish because it is too busy helping you to compensate for the side-effects of your own uncertainties. Yet your intuition wants to do much more for you now. It is trying to nudge you towards a solution that could yet put your head and your heart in harmony.

SCORPIO (October 24 – November 22)
What do you owe? Where do your obligations and responsibilities lie? To whom are you answerable? What will happen if you do not honour a promise? Sorry to start your forecast with so many questions but these are all concerns that are now floating through your mind. You are noble and honourable. You don’t want to let anyone down, even if they do not deserve such loyalty from you. Something has to give. Don’t let false pride get in the way of a truly viable solution. You are entitled to renegotiate an old arrangement.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23 – December 21)
With just one statement, you can start an argument. That argument can soon become a battle. That battle can easily give rise to a war. You can do this. I can do it. We all can. That’s why we need to be so careful about what we say and to who we say it. Why fight for what you want this week when, if you use different language and employ some sensitivity, you can get what you want anyway? You can inspire great generosity. Be subtle, tactful and charming and you can yet manage to make an irritating problem vanish.

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 20)
Mercury’s sharp link to Saturn suggests that this week you find yourself trying to perform a delicate balancing act. You need (or feel you need) to be in two places at once. Your loyalties are torn. Your responsibilities appear mutually incompatible. You are facing the kind of challenge that might daunt many a mortal. Fortunately, you are made of sterner stuff. You can cope with this. Indeed, you can turn it to your advantage. Stop trying to make everything all right for everyone all the time. Just look at what matters most and put your focus there.

AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 19)
Every night, in our sleep, we analyse the events of the day. Even if we do not understand our dreams they help us to file away our thoughts and experiences. If, in that process, we come across a memory that sits uncomfortably or a situation that does not satisfy us, our sleeping mind tries to convey this discomfort to our waking mind. It usually takes the form of a dream that we cannot forget. You need, this week, to interpret a message from the deepest part of yourself. Once it makes sense, so will everything else.

PISCES (February 20 – March 20)
Time is rather like the ocean. We are rather like little boats, cast adrift on those great waves. We have no option other than to go with the flow. No matter how many sails we put up or engines we fire up, we cannot go in another direction. Nor can we speed up our progress. What choice do we have? One. One very big important choice. We can choose whether to feel okay about a situation we can’t change or whether to resent it. Acceptance is the key to greater buoyancy and smoother sailing in your life this week.
