Do opposites really attract? And why do romantic comedies rely on the story convention of two characters who can't stand each other except for the fact that they are actually in love? The complications of love will be highlighted now as lady Venus opposes disciplined Saturn. Nothing about love makes sense.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Any daily activity can be a path to peace, as long as you are mindful as you do it. Your attention to experiences will involve all of your senses as you completely join with the moments of your life.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will have moments in which you rise above the chatter of your mind and act without thinking. You'll be at one with your nature and with the nature of the world, and it feels good to be back in the flow.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You can't "try" to be more spontaneous any more than you can "seriously" work on your sense of humor. You'll be aware of similarly futile efforts, and you'll give them up.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). People have a right to change their minds, but there's a wrong way to do this and a right way. You could be dealing with some flaky people today — or maybe it's just that no one taught them the right way.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your breath anchors you to life. Being aware of your breathing — the depth of it, when you hold your breath, what makes you exhale — will make you aware of your life
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your understanding will broaden, and suddenly you may question certain things you took for granted — for instance, your freedom. How free are you really, and how could you be freer?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It will be lucky for you to address any concerns you have about your self-image or body. You're likely to either nip a problem in the bud or make easy, inexpensive improvements.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Just because you make something doesn't mean people will buy it. And the same goes for your opinions. However, today the odds are in your favor. Play them and cash in.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You don't require that your loved ones stand by your side at all times, but you like to know they would if you wanted them to. You might create a false alarm situation just to make sure.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You'll be in "watch and learn" mode, preferring to hang back and watch how people interact, solve problems and go about their daily business. You'll absorb a week's worth of experience in one day.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You attract highly compatible individuals, people who harmonize with you in many ways and on multiple levels. The inspiration will coax your soul into singing its sweet song.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are an expression of divine energy even though you sometimes feel like a complete mess. Really, you need to stop being so hard on yourself. Focus on what's going right.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 4). There will be many marvelous opportunities to understand your social needs and tendencies. The mastery of interpersonal dynamics will augment your fortunes. Keep circulating even when you're not sure you want to make the effort. Finances perk up in April. New relationships enter the scene in June. Your work also changes in June. Aries and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 19, 2, 22, 1 and 16.
FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: Venus is a vixen this week. On Sunday, she opposes Saturn, challenging the rules of love and insisting there aren't any. But Saturn is having none of this "all's fair in love and war" approach. And perhaps it really works best in movies and romance novels. In reality, most people like to stick to certain rules of conduct, especially when it comes to relationships. So resist acting impulsively. Feel the passion, and then think it through.
On Monday, Venus scoots into Taurus, rekindling a love affair with aesthetics. Objects of beauty will seem even more irresistible, and over the next month, we'll be impressed by craftsmanship, artistry and quality. If you don't have many luxuries in your life, you may begin to feel that it's about time you spoiled yourself a little.
The moon grows more robust each day until the full moon in Virgo on Thursday, March 8. This wholesome lunar influence brings attention to the activities that bring about improvements in fitness, stamina and wellness. But it doesn't stop there. Emotional and spiritual health matter the most. When you're happy, you'll do what it takes to be healthy and strong. So make yourself happy!
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Disney star Sterling Knight cracks up the tween set with his comedic talents on the sketch comedy series "So Random." But he has a serious side, too, which will be highlighted in the soon-to-be-released film "Transit." The Pisces actor has a strong chart for career longevity. His sun and Venus in Pisces indicates endless emotional wells from which to draw. Three planets in stable Capricorn indicates a truly remarkable business acumen.
