Your Horoscopes for Tuesday, March 31st
We’re determined to maintain some semblance of normalcy after Mars shifts from impulsive Aries to sensible Taurus midday. We get another blast of practicality when the Moon enters earthy Virgo at 2:12 pm EDT. Nevertheless, it’s still nearly impossible to keep our feet on the ground because energetic Mars forms otherworldly aspects with philosophical Jupiter and surreal Neptune. Ultimately, we float into imaginative realms no matter what we do.
(Mar 21 – Apr 19)
It’s odd, but you can’t decide whether everything is going along as it should or if something weird is happening that’s pulling your day off track. You might be afraid that you’re not as in control as you wish today, even if you’re making progress on the most important projects. Perhaps you would be more satisfied if everything was turned upside down, but it feels as if some sort of cosmic superglue is keeping the status quo from coming apart at the seams. Don’t worry so much about things you can’t change; it’s time to accept that the universe has different plans for you.
(Apr 20 – May 20)
You may experience such a strong boost of energy today that your confidence soars to new heights. However, your enthusiasm isn’t about unrealistic expectations based on pie-in-the-sky fantasies. You actually try to pin your hopes on the facts as you see them. Nevertheless, something is out of kilter and you might be surprised by a sudden shift in the cosmic weather. Instead of running around trying to figure out what you missed, gracefully integrate the changes as quickly as possible. Just like a colorful chameleon, adaptability works in your favor.
(May 21 – Jun 20)
You are not overly concerned with reaching your goals today because you realize how arbitrary time can be. After all, there is always tomorrow. Your feelings are more important to you now than your production, regardless of what anyone expects. Unfortunately, you can’t completely separate yourself from the judgments of others who are sharing your space. Even if you believe that your reactions are strictly your business, living with people in close vicinity requires sacrifice and compromise on an ongoing basis. No man is an island.
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
Although your career aspirations are still meaningful, you’re dreaming about your future in less concrete terms now. Ironically, you might believe that your goals are built upon sensible expectations, even if they’re not. However, all the substantiating facts in the world aren’t enough to pull you back to earth today. Don’t fight the natural rhythm of the cosmos. Give yourself permission to follow the currents wherever they carry you for the sake of the experience.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
You might wish you could kick back and let everyone continue on without you today. But you know that others are judging you by what you accomplish so you have a difficult time of relinquishing your real world obligations. Make heart-centered choices; whatever you do now, it’s crucial to positively reinforce your self-esteem. It’s not helpful to decide upon a course of action based upon your assumptions about the reactions of anyone else. Your success is best measured by the level of your personal satisfaction and the pride you take in your work.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You are happiest today when you are actively pursuing your future. Unfortunately, there are a few unexpected bends in the road, and you may be confused about reaching your ultimate destination if you’re pulled too far off course. Nevertheless, your task is to hold steady on your current path now, even if you feel like you’ve lost the plot to your story. Whether or not you can see through the fog, your light shines brightly for those close to you. It only takes one candle to light up the dark.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
It doesn’t really matter how long a particular friendship has already lasted; you are ready to emotionally shift gears today. Taking things to the next level sounds like a lovely idea now that assertive Mars enters your strange and intimate 8th House of Deep Feelings. But the trick is to move slowly and remain open to the rhythms of the heart. There is no need to rush what should unfold naturally. Honesty and trust are essential ingredients for your happiness.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Someone’s agenda crosses paths with yours today and you’re not willing to just walk away from an unresolved confrontation. The best possible course to take is one of direct communication and unflagging honesty. However, your passionate emotions might not blend well with the theme of practicality called for by four planets in earth signs. Forget about settling your differences or proving your point now. Instead listen to the other person’s ideas and simply acknowledge his or her position. Awareness leads to mutual respect and, hopefully, your peace of mind.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You may lose steam this afternoon but running out of energy might not be as bad as it sounds. Instead of just powering your way over any obstacles you encounter, you have to take a longer view if you want to reach the finish line. This philosophical perspective requires you to cultivate a special skill to a new level of competence. Luckily, you are likely to gain tools now that will benefit you for the rest of your life, regardless of the progress you make on your goals today. Life is a marathon, not a sprint.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Your center of gravity is strong enough today to withstand a cyclone. You are determined to reach your destination and nothing will obstruct your forward progress. Nevertheless, you still may have to deal with more than you bargained for because what you see is not necessarily what you get. Life plays tricks on you now, even if you think you’re prepared for any type of emergency. Take stock of all your options and be ready for the mind games that can haunt you when reality is bent out of shape.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You would like to push beyond your regular patterns of communication but might not know the best way to get started. You tend to be more effective when working in pure conceptual realms, but have trouble escaping from a more pragmatic view over the next few weeks. Don’t assume you have all the answers just because you’ve amassed a lot of information. Sometimes the most useful solutions come from the emptiness that’s between the noisy facts and figures. Dancing with the unknown leads to your success.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Life can feel like a struggle if others demand more precision and detail than you have to offer today. You wish you could remain floating around in your dream world, yet you realize that there is work to do and it won’t just happen on its own. However, it may seem as if your extra efforts are for naught if you aren’t making much headway on any one project. Nevertheless, it’s a big mistake to judge your success by rational analysis now. The most significant progress eludes measurement, so save your assumptions and conclusions for another day. Let your imagination run the show.
