Gas-Card Sun The Virgo sun is like a gas card handed from doting parents to children in college. It's assistance. It's fuel. It will help out.

FOR RELEASE: SATURDAY, MARCH 3, 2012
The sun and Mars in opposition brings an exciting tension between what we believe and what we're willing to do about it. This might be the perfect opportunity to rectify situations where you've been talking the talk but not walking the walk. It could be just the wake-up call necessary to bring ideology and action into a powerful alignment.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). In order to solve a puzzle, you have to have access to all of the pieces. You won't realize what's missing until the assembly is under way. Don't wait. Put things together, and you'll figure out what more is needed soon enough.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). According to one urban dictionary, a "noob" is a name for someone who is bad at something because they are new to it; whereas, a "nub" lacks skill in spite of having plenty of experience. You'll need patience for both types today.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Think about what the initial trigger was that put a chain of events in motion. The observations of an objective party could help. Avoid the mistake of focusing on the result and not the cause of a problem.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your drive is commendable, and it's what attracts successful people to your side. However, be careful not to let a hungry ambition blind you to everything else that's going on around you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your intuition is so strong that you could be inspired to make a choice without bothering to put the matter through a decision-making process. And your selection will be better than anything you could have labored over.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Remember Rip Van Winkle? He took a 20-year nap through the American Revolution and woke up to a changed world. You, on the other hand, are determined to stay wide awake and catch every detail.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You're game to try new things. Whether or not you'll like them isn't the point. The point is that you'll know more for trying. You'll be in just the mood to say "yes" and see what happens.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You want to be more important in someone's world. The strong water-sign influences overhead put you in touch with subtle emotional signals and help you find a way into the heart of another.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Take on a "hopeless" issue. It's clear that what you already know isn't enough to facilitate a breakthrough. You'll access different knowledge and discover the key.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You're ready to get a better grip on finances.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Over-thinking is the enemy of fun. Designate a certain period of time (afternoon is best) to let loose and go bouncing around for a while. You could reach gleeful heights.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your energy will be strongest on your birthday and during the three days on either side it. Take extra care of yourself the two weeks before your birthday when your energy is muted. Get more sleep, and eat better then, too.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 3). You'll be a peacemaker and a healer because you respect opinions and beliefs that are different from your own. The harmony between your spiritual and physical life will help you ride the flow of life without too much stress. Psychic and emotional connections lead to moves and lifestyle upgrades in May. Cancer and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 22, 28 and 15.
COSMIC CONFIDENCE: In the age of Facebook and YouTube, there are more opportunities than ever before to project yourself in a public forum. Whether in interpersonal dealings or in presenting yourself to the world at large, your astrological sign offers unique insight to help you gain the confident edge that will make others take notice and give you the right kind of attention. So what's your cosmic advantage?
LEO: Because you are the sign of showmanship, excitement, creativity and entertainment, people naturally assume that you don't suffer from the same fears — such as stage fright and social anxiety — that so many find debilitating. In fact, very often, Leos have severe anxiety related to performing, interviewing and the like. The difference is that they are inexplicably driven to the spotlight anyway, like a moth to the flame. Yours is definitely a case of "feel the fear and do it anyway."
When you're afraid, the way to feel confident is by pretending. You can assume a role like a child playing make believe, trying on the words, actions and emotions to see how you might be able to make them fit. Working from the outside in can be quite effective for you. In other words, putting on the clothes, hair and makeup can be an effective way of easing you into the role.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Coldplay frontman Chris Martin is a creative Pisces born when the moon and Saturn were in Leo, the sign of the entertainer. Venus in Aries puts the warrior energy into the realm of beauty, music and romance. He'll fight for his art and to keep love alive. Mars in Aquarius shows that musical expression and innovation will be a compelling and lifelong focus.
