Rockie Weekly Horoscope March 30-April 5
Expect more than the usual nuttiness on All Fools' Day as Mercury meets up with wild and weird Uranus in Pisces. Monday's full moon in lovable Libra has to contend with the chilly reception Venus, the ruler of Libra, gets from stoical Saturn. Good for sculptors working in stone. Wednesday's challenge concerns buying into someone else's fantasy while nebulous Neptune and Venus square. Good for makeup artists and musicians. Although lucky Jupiter turns retrograde next Thursday, the flip shouldn't impact what promises to be an especially fortunate Easter weekend.
Aries: Mar. 20 - Apr. 19
There might be a holier-than-thou vibe to Easter week this year because, as of Good Friday, your Mars ruler will be in Pisces, the sign of the Fish. Don't dismiss the urge to sacrifice something precious, yourself included, for a higher purpose; and don't worry that this desire will become permanent. On May 15th, Mars comes home to Aries and assumes its usual headstrong stance. Meanwhile, be sure to take advantage of the favors headed your way as the sun in Aries favors, and is favored in return, by prosperous Jupiter and constructive Saturn.
Taurus: Apr. 20 - May 20
You simply have to be your own seriously attractive, semi- sweet self; not a problem while Venus, your lovable ruling planet remains in your sign. What might be more difficult is to let the people who are prominent in your life at the moment do their thing. This includes the wise-ass associate, a philanthropic advisor and either dear old Dad or the Momma you occasionally would like to throw from a train. They, or folks like them, are the chief characters in the rewarding grand fire trine taking place this month.
Gemini: May 21 - Jun. 20
Like your Taurus neighbor, Twins may have to step away from center stage and give the supporting players in your current drama their turn in the spotlight. With "know it all" Jupiter in your Sag marriage house, your partners will insist on having their say, but a neighbor or elderly relative could also advance the plot line. We won't even mention your boss or a business associate who's demanding more attention. Your willingness to settle for less than prime time ends when your Mercury ruler leaves pious Pisces on the 10th.
Cancer: Jun. 21 - Jul. 22
For a change, the Libra full moon on the 2nd was not an eclipse, so we trust that the Moon Child will be able to deal with your domestic scene without interruption or interference. Pay attention instead to the high-spirited and highly effective grand fire trine between the Aries sun in your career midheaven, expansive Jupiter in your work zone and stabilizing Saturn in your house of money matters. This is about as adventurous, yet constructive a combination of planetary forces as you've encountered in many years.
Leo: Jul. 23 - Aug. 22
If you're not already sitting on top of the world, you should be planning your ascent. While your sun ruler is in Aries, the courageous fire sign governing your house of foreign travel, you're psyched to have a memorable physical or spiritual adventure. Add a heavy dose of enthusiasm from Jupiter in your house of recreation and risk, and you might be willing to ignore the warning signs you're getting from prudent Saturn in Leo. A grand fire trine composed of the major planets suggests that you're about to receive a huge reward. What for?
Virgo: Aug. 23 - Sep. 22
So much for arguing with the dry cleaners. Once assertive Mars enters Pisces on the 6th, you'll prefer to fight with your partners and they in turn with you. This much passion could lead to a more interesting sex life than you've experienced since the last time the planet of testosterone was in your house of significant others two years ago. This interlude lasts only until mid-May, so don't be shy. Because your Mercury ruler ends its sojourn in Pisces on the 10th, initiate meaningful discussions with your allies ASAP.
Libra: Sep. 23 - Oct. 22
That sense of emotional fulfillment that flows from a Libra full moon might not be felt because, at the same time, your Venus ruler had to deal with a challenging square from Saturn, the planet of limitations and loss. Keep your wallet close and your credit card receipts closer. Also double check the advice you're getting from Neptunian-type dreamers and schemers. While they may be spot on regarding aesthetic values and artistic technique, for the time being you're liable to believe any sweet nothing whispered in your ear.
Scorpio: Oct. 23 - Nov. 21
Cashing in? Lucky Jupiter in your Sag house of assets and values is poised to produce a major reward for work well done. Plus, since Saturn in your Leo midheaven is involved, a person of stature in your chosen field seems to like you well enough to put some money where their mouth is. Adding to the possible potential for profit, the Aries sun is currently illuminating your house of co-workers and worthy causes. Put these three major forces together and there's a better than average chance your trifecta ticket will pay off.
Sagittarius: Nov. 22 - Dec. 21
It can't be said often enough. Your growth-oriented Jupiter ruler will continue to offer a cornucopia of benefits while it transits Sagittarius this year. Add a favorable connection to persistent Saturn in Leo, the sign of show biz, and you could be in clover far longer than anyone anticipates. An extra advantage for Easter week: the adventurous Aries sun in your house of recreation, romance and risk forms the third leg of the rewarding grand fire trine. Along with your not-so-cockeyed optimism, bona fide good luck.
Capricorn: Dec. 22 - Jan. 20
Overcome the feeling that while Venus is testing your Saturn ruler, your love life sucks, and you'll come out of this week a far better and much luckier Goat. But first you have to trust that protective Jupiter is acting as your guardian angel, and that the independent Aries sun, rather than irritating you with its "devil-may-care" approach, is actually lightening your load at home. You may also achieve a creative solution to an on-going financial matter during this rare, but oh so rewarding, grand fire sign trine.
Aquarius: Jan. 21 - Feb. 18
Fascination or fraudulence? Only because impressionable Neptune in your sign is currently the object of Venus' many charms are you being cautioned. If the goddess is simply offering decorating advice, that's all well and good. But if she is demanding that you spend way too much money, then you'd better wait another week until her influence is on the wane. Since this is a good time for partnership matters, concentrate instead on keeping those lines of communication open and above board so that significant progress can be made.
Pisces: Feb. 19 - Mar. 19
If you're aware that Jupiter (your ancient ruling planet) is turning retrograde in your career midheaven on the 5th, you won't be as disappointed if what you expected to happen doesn't. Nevertheless, strong, favorable vibes are flowing from the jolly giant at the top, to consistently constructive Saturn in your workaday world and the Aries sun in your money house. Might they constitute a golden parachute? Further clarification once Mercury finally leaves Pisces, where it's been hanging out since Groundhog Day.
