Cruisin’ the Cosmos – week of March 10 2011


Opportunity’s “pop-in” personality means you won’t get a friendly phone call beforehand nor will you be able to pencil in an appointment at a time convenient for you. You’ll only hear it a-knockin’ from outta the blue. Don’t worry about your privacy and don’t think too long about openin’ the door — by the time you make that decision the opportunity may not be there anymore.


A change in your fortunes this week doesn’t mean you can indulge yourself and impulsively pursue every desire or whim you might have. You’re well aware of what you really want and gettin’ it’ll still require a whole lotta work. Be your own best friend and use your new resources to accomplish that end.


Bein’ born under Venus you have a particular air of pleasantness in your personality. Use this peachy-keenness when things pile up against you rather than relyin’ on the pointy things atop your head. Show grace under pressure or risk gettin’ pushed into doin’ somethin’ hasty that seems like it would be but really ain’t very tasty!


Your celestial supervisor Mercury will start goin’ backwards at the end of the month so enjoy feelin’ like less of a freak the next few weeks. Since this coming conflict could cause you considerable calamity stick to your work for a fortnight before things just ain’t quite right.


When events run afoul before the weekend don’t forget to remind yourself failure ain’t necessarily the end. You’re jugglin’ lots in your life and just ’cause you dropped one ball it don’t mean the whole show’s over. Just you wait crabcakes — in a couple weeks you’ll be rollin’ in clover.

LEO (JULY 23 – AUG. 22)

With the moon in your sign early next week you’ll have the strength of will needed to wrestle with your foes. Those who want to cut you out or expand into your territory will be comin’ outta the woodwork and there’s no way you’re gonna grant ’em their wishes right? Send those bugs scurryin’ back where they belong — into the night.

VIRGO (AUG. 23 – SEPT. 22)

It takes tons of strength to stoically stand your ground when every moron around tries to mess with your business. But when their meddlin’ becomes so much you can barely move a muscle it no longer suffices to simply make a stand you must begin to tussle. The time has come to kick some bum.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23 – OCT. 22)

It seems you’ve been strollin’ down easy street so long you’re startin’ to go a li’l soft on us. Well now’s a good time to put a hold on your hedonistic side and harden up some. There’s a battle loomin’ on your horizon so the goal of gettin’ fit for a fight is what you oughtta keep your eyes on.

SCORPIO (OCT. 23 – NOV. 21)

Anything you find causin’ you pain this week is something you can make work for you. How? You can control the pain by controllin’ yourself. Whether it’s mental emotional or physical in nature you play a part in it and can change your thinkin’ patterns to avoid or manage it. Learnin’ how to do so’ll mean the pain won’t worsen and you’ll also end up a much stronger person.


You’ve been blessed with long-term vision but sometimes when you’ve been workin’ towards something for so long and you ain’t seen squat you get sick of stickin’ it out. Don’t worry it’s not all in vain since boredom is only a temporary pain. Keep at it and you will be rewarded!


Your analytical mind deftly dissects anything dished out to you and you’re able to differentiate between the parts that are productive and unproductive. You may have a sharp eye but sometimes even you can’t see the simple fact that if you can’t beat ’em you might as well join ’em in their act.

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20 – FEB. 18)

When the world gets to be a bit much like this weekend you sometimes start to seek out distractions from your daily life. Don’t do it this time. Dabblin’ in diversions will only detour you down a dusty dirt road of difficulty when you oughtta be easy ridin’ on your asphalt all the way to your destiny.
