Hold on to your pocketbooks, and freeze your credit cards in a block of ice. Venus slips into luxury-loving Taurus, turning our attention to all of the beauty (and branding) around us. True, the most amazingly gorgeous things cannot be bought, a fact that you'll do well to remind yourself of over the course of this transit, which lasts until April 3.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You feel emotion deeply and with a consuming passion. Let it out. Internalizing all of this intensity isn't good for you. Go where you can safely express yourself to the fullest extent.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If everyone would replace things they move and stay where they belong, a lot of confusion and accidents could be avoided. Everyone won't. But some will, especially if you do your part. Many will follow you now.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You'll love the way people around you seem to be working just for you. Really, it's because your needs are in alignment with what others want most to give.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Make sure your whole team is on the same page. When everyone is working together, you'll turn out a result that's a source of both pride and revenue.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You'll be sorting out many opinions that differ from your own. You'll stand your ground, but you'll also give in now and then for the sake of smooth relationships with others.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Whatever games and battles you take on now, you're likely to win. So before you take on the fight, make sure it's something that would benefit you in the long run. Think it through to the end.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your delightful balance of freewheeling spontaneity and disciplined organization will attract opportunities for friendship and new business. People feel they can trust you and also have some fun.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your talents are strong, especially the ones that are hard to explain. Work that makes you use your powerful intuition to extract knowledge that is in some manner hidden will be the most satisfying to you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You are loyal and ferociously committed to doing all you can for those lucky enough to have won your devotion. Your high level of personal responsibility will be understood for the beautiful gift it is.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Life will bring a bit of surprise and chaos to liven things up. It will take extra effort to set things straight again, but you'll feel better when your surroundings are neat and orderly.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You get along with others because you "get it." Your individuality remains intact, but you also realize that you are equal to and in some ways united with everyone else around you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your incredibly laid-back mood is pleasant this morning, though you'll find the afternoon shift of gears equally pleasant. Suddenly, you want something new that requires you to develop more structure in your activities.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 5). This month brings movement in the area of romance and business partnerships. When you meet people, you'll have a sense about how well you can get along and where to take the relationship. In June, there's a chance to establish yourself as an expert. Loved ones support and forward your interests in July. Leo and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 2, 12, 30 and 14.
COSMIC CONFIDENCE: In the age of Facebook and YouTube, there are more opportunities than ever before to project yourself in a public forum. 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?
VIRGO: Whether you are dressing for an occasion, arranging your office, planning a dinner or organizing your online profile, you approach the task with thought and a high level of attention. Always looking for ways to improve yourself, you try to stay aware of how others might perceive what you're doing. You figure out what's appropriate, and then you home in on the details until you have a result that is not only right for the situation, but is also original and well thought out.
You must be careful not to let your hyper-vigilance lead you to burn out or opt out of potentially expanding opportunities. Not everything requires such a high level of attention — or maybe it does, and you just don't have the time. That doesn't mean you have to skip the endeavor altogether. The truly confident have to accept that sometimes you give what you can give, and that's good enough.
