Weekly horoscopes: March 4 - March 10

Mar 4, 2013 at 4:20 p.m. ET

Not all guilty secrets are based on wrongdoing. Sometimes they stem from actions not taken or from a desire to avoid hurting anyone’s feelings. Keep in mind that good intentions can pave the way to hellish situations and that what a loved one needs from you is understanding; not a lecture. Would you really have done things all that differently if you were in this person’s shoes? Food for thought on Wednesday when the Moon occults Pluto.


ARIES (March 20-April 18)

You may not be out of the woods debt-wise, but at least you can see the forest for the trees. Continue working with that financial plan in play and you should be in the clear by Sept. 20. Meanwhile, you may be seized by a wave of regret for a recent decision on Wednesday. Don’t make something that wasn’t easy harder. What’s done is done — move on.


TAURUS (April 19-May 19)

Curb that impulse to a make a scene and to have it out on Wednesday. Restraint is the order of the day — especially when dealing with ex-spouses, button-pushing adolescents, and scheming supervisors. Your patience will pay off on Friday when an opponent inadvertently plays into your hands by giving you the information you need to turn the tables in your favor.


GEMINI (May 20-June 19)

An embattled situation grows quiet and this won’t sit easily with you. Has your nemesis really moved on to easier prey? Or is this a ruse aimed at getting you to come out of hiding? Believe it or not, it looks as if your strategy of evasion has worked and you have exhausted this person’s resources. This could result in a litigious suit being dropped or talk of a settlement on March 8.


CANCER (June 20-July 21)

You have no idea where things are going and that’s OK, because everything will fall into line on March 11 when Mars, the action planet, begins its translation of light at the top of your horoscope. This will green-light all of your hopes and dreams and ambitions. Meanwhile, refrain from doing something provocative just for the sake of being provocative. You want to harness the energies at play and not be overrun by them.


LEO (July 22-Aug. 21)

You are in the final stages of wrapping up a contentious financial matter and/or family dispute, so don’t let yourself get sidetracked. If anything, you can expect a fresh round of complaints, problems, and demands on Monday and Wednesday. These are the desperate actions of people who know that they have already lost, so just keep doing what you are doing and things will be settled in your favor on March 19.


VIRGO (Aug. 22-Sept. 21)

You thought the door was closed, but you may find your heart softening instead. It’s surprising considering how far along you are with your exit strategy. Sometimes we don’t know how much we value someone until we stand at the point of no return. Friday would be a good day to remember the message of Pisces, which is that forgiveness isn’t a sign of weakness, intolerance is. This is one time when a second thought leads to a second chance that’s worth taking.


LIBRA (Sept. 22-Oct. 21)

Perhaps you should stop saying no to an opportunity that keeps presenting itself. It’s because there was no guarantee that things would work out that you kept turning it down. You didn’t want to get your hopes up only to be disappointed. However you will also never know what could be if you don’t try. Go ahead and take the plunge on the 9th.


SCORPIO (Oct. 22-Nov. 20)

Your love of old things leads to a remarkable discovery this week. Maybe it’s an antique hidden in a corner of the attic, a piece of information tucked between the footnotes, or taking an old talent of yours off the shelf and brushing it up a bit. It only goes to show that what’s old is renewed again when Saturn in Scorpio sextiles Pluto in Capricorn.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20)

You will face two moral dilemmas this week. On Monday you will have to decide if the truth will set a friend free or just make her miserable. And on Saturday you will have to decide if taking the fall for someone else is worth the tumble. Let your conscience be your guide (as it should be in all things) and you can’t go wrong.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 18)

You were born under Saturn, the planet of time. Things take twice as long to come together and twice as long to fall apart. This gives you plenty of time to consider the consequences of your actions in both the before and the after. It also bestows the gift of hindsight, as you’ll see on Friday when a rare Saturn/Pluto sextile reveals the hidden merits of something you assumed was an exercise in futility.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 19-Feb. 17)

It’s true that when a door closes then a window will open — as long as you don’t slam that door shut. You may not like how things are concluding between you and another party, but where does it say that you have to part on bad terms? Re-invoke the same good spirit that was there when you got together. It’s not as hard as you think.


PISCES (Feb. 18-March 19)

You’re going to feel like you can have your cake and eat it too with so many planets in your sign this week. This sounds like a good thing until you realize that it could be the recipe to disaster — or at least a bad bout of indigestion. Take the time to really identify what matters most to you on the 6th and 7th and you can enjoy dessert with no regrets.
