Man and woman in love

Playing with fire

You will need to be careful this week when Venus enters Aries on March 21. Venus is anything but harmonious when she's traveling through this zodiac sign. In fact, Venus in Aries can be trouble. She's famous for introducing hot guys that aren't your husband, setting up love triangles that never quite work out, and for bringing together star-crossed lovers who might have been happier never meeting in the first place. You'll be playing with fire as long as Venus is in Aries (lasts through April 15), so make sure you don't get burned.


ARIES (March 20-April 18)

You will not be in your right mind this week, and what you think about that all depends on how things pan out with a paramour on Friday. You have a lot of Uranian energy coursing through your horoscope and it will be pushing you to follow your passion. Be true to who you are and what you feel and you can't go wrong.


TAURUS (April 19-May 19)

The more you try to hold on to someone, the more this person will try to shake free. It's not a great thing to be going through, but that's how Uranus in Aries works. It's very rebellious and very independent. The trick to getting through this is to give your lover or spouse plenty of space. It won't be easy to do, but you'll be glad you did by month's end.


GEMINI (May 20-June 19)

It looks like someone you were about to write off will be getting interesting again on Wednesday. You don't like it when people show their cards too early, so you'll enjoy the mystery that this unexpected complication introduces. Hopefully this will flush out sides of this person you suspected were there all along. If not, then there will be another love interest to take his place in May.


CANCER (June 20-July 21)

You need to know if your lover believes in you. You're undergoing one of the most transformative periods of your life and you don't want to be held back by someone who doesn't get you. It's OK if he doesn't get you intellectually, but if it's something where he continues to be critical and/or condescending, then you will have to leave him behind. Your life is calling and you can't be burdened with a naysayer.


LEO (July 22-Aug. 21)

The next two weeks are pivotal to the future of your relationship. The spike in fiery energy will make or break everything. If you can't keep your hands off him, then you know he's the right one for you. If you're still telling yourself that he looks good on paper but you're not sure, then it's back to the drawing board. Surprise developments on Friday could turn all of this around.


VIRGO (Aug. 22-Sept. 21)

Whoever said that Virgos were the prudes of the zodiac clearly never dated one. Just because you're not easy doesn't mean that you can't have fun. In any case, you'll be debunking many of the myths that have cropped up around your sign over the next four weeks. And even you may be surprised by what you're willing to do for love on March 22.


LIBRA (Sept. 22-Oct. 21)

Why is it that you're attracting the attention of everyone but the person you're in love with? This is what happens when Venus, your planetary ruler, is traveling through the opposite sign of Aries. Everything is reversed — like your reflection in a mirror. Instead of feeling frustrated, you might try flirting with some of these guys. It would certainly pique the interest of that fellow you're crushing on. He might even do something about it on Friday.


SCORPIO (Oct. 22-Nov. 20)

You don't like it when men wear their hearts on their sleeves. It's a funny thing, but it makes sense when you're born under Scorpio, the zodiac sign of obsession/compulsion. You will always want what you can't have because that's what keeps your romantic interest and the erotic fires burning. However, erotic can turn into neurotic if you're not careful. If you want your unavailable man to become more available, then stop changing the subject whenever he wants to bare his soul.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20)

Have things gone too far? That's what you'll be asking yourself on March 19 when you see that your "ex" is going to match you snub for snub. Your agreement was a temporary break, but now it's starting to take on a life of its own. If that's OK, then leave it alone. If not? Then it wouldn't be the worst idea to tell him that you want him back on the 22nd.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 18)

Get ready for another week of wondering what you are turning into. You knew that you were tightly wound (you're a Capricorn after all), but you didn't know that you were that tightly wound. Call it rebellion, liberation or a mid-life crisis, but it looks like there's a part of you that's intent on being wild and crazy. And it's OK. Everyone needs some time to get the ya-yas out and yours will last until April 20.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 19-Feb. 17)

Do you know what a frenemy is? It's someone who sits on the fence between buddy and rival. She's in your corner when you're feeling broken-hearted and the first one to make a play for your boyfriend when you start dating again. Now that you're starting to get the right kind of attention from the right kind of guys, you will want to watch her like a hawk. Especially on the 21st when Venus enters competitive Aries.


PISCES (Feb. 18-March 19)

You can expect a lot of drama on Wednesday and Friday. There will be no containing it, so you're better off just letting things play out on their own. Like a runaway horse, you want to let it keep running until it comes to a complete stop — which will be after the 28th. At this point cooler heads will prevail and you can expect to approach matters reasonably.
