Anyone born this week is an Aries. People born under this sign are outspoken and are ready, willing and able to express an opinion on any given subject at any time.
An Aries is seldom shy, since they are born leaders and never like to take a back seat to anyone. This fire sign is aggressive, assertive and seldom, if ever, a follower. Aries people will tell you the truth as they see it and are not known for their diplomacy. They get along best with other fire signs, Leo and Sagittarius.
They seldom stop to think before they blurt out what they think. They tend to act and then think, which often gets them in trouble. They sometimes have problems dealing with water sign people, Cancer, Pisces and Scorpio because water signs tend to be extremely sensitive.
Life in the fast lane is what makes an Aries tick. Aries like action, if there is no action they move on.
People born this week: Eileen Heckert, March 29, 1919; Mark Consuelos, March 30. 1971; Herb Alpert, March 31, 1935; Susan Boyle, April 1, 1961; Marvin Gaye, April 2, 1939; Eddie Murphy, April 3, 1961; Heath Ledger, April 4, 1979; Gregory Peck, April 5, 1916; Merle Haggard, April 6, 1937.
Mercury is now direct and on Friday there is a full moon in Libra. So if you have projects waiting to start try Saturday from 2:45 to 7 p.m. This is the best day and time this week for new starts.
Tim Tebow, the new Jets quarterback in waiting, is a Leo born on August 14, 1987, and if you think there is a Leo alive who takes a back seat to anyone, ever, you are wrong. Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez is a Scorpio, born on November 11, 1986. There is a chance these two fixed sign players will get along, but don’t put much money on it. The two will be great news copy in the coming season.
Aries (March 21 to April 20) After last week’s intensity you may not want to deal with the emotions of others. So find yourself a secret hideaway and enjoy the silence for a few minutes. Uranus, now in Aries, always brings upset and causes some changes. The less upset, the better the change will be. Relationships will not suffer.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20) You may think of yourself as easy going and relaxed, but most people feel your rigid attitudes and love you for it. Making adjustments now will help all your relationships, including your love life. If you allow some adjustments your life will glow.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) If you are thinking seriously of settling down you should run like the wind. This is no time to settle for anything less than what you really, really want. Just because life looks challenging now does not mean it will always be this way. Stay calm and let others do the same. It will work in you favor.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) It is time for a change of pace. Your life has been packed with tension for some time and it is time to relax. If you can travel or just take a short vacation away from the work environment it would be good for you and your pals. A new friend could also become serious if you want. Otherwise look out.
Leo (July 21 to August 20) Don’t risk your present security by listening to nonsense. Slow down and know you are headed for a good time in a matter of weeks. Let go of the negative that some people seem to push at you, but you are in control of your life and you know how it should run. You must be the star.
Virgo (August 21 to September 20) With Mars in Virgo until July you can expect the crazy activity of the past couple of weeks to continue. The lesson here is to learn to stabilize your emotions and don’t let anything or anyone create havoc in your life. Remember you have been thru the worst of times before. Expect the return of an old love.
Libra (September 21 to October 20) With Saturn in Libra you need to keep yourself in top form and watch for some new relationships to spark up your life. A new friend could help you but not for a long time, so don’t give up the past pals. You can accomplish anything you set your heart on. Success is all around you, so grab it and run fast.
Scorpio (October 21 to November 20) Understand you are unstoppable now. If you keep this in mind you will win any game you decide to play. Your lack of trust should pay off big now since no one will be able to pull the wool over your eyes. Be smart and expect to meet some new love interests. What you do after is up to you. Just go slow or suffer.
Sagittarius (November 21 to December 20) There could be a few emotional scenes around you this week, but don’t get caught up in them or you will be one sorry soul. If you feel some anger run around the block and let it go. A good old friend could be back in your life, but don’t take it seriously or there will be some pain.
Capricorn (December 21 to January 20) Stay out of your own way by minding your business. There is no need to get involved in issues that have nothing to do with making more money. Understand you are approaching business in a new mood and that will make the sparks fly and the cash register ring.
Aquarius (January 21 to February 20) Although you could be offering some fine advice to a good friend you must know that some people are not ready for your opinions, so learn to keep some things to yourself. Look for a potential soul mate to cross your path and cheer you up very soon. It just may not last forever, but it is worth the effort to get involved.
Pisces (February 21 to March 20) Avoid getting involved in a complex emotional issue with a friend. It would be best to say nothing and hope for the best, rather than give an opinion. This should be an easy experience for you, since you don’t like getting involved anyway. Just hold the hand and let life happen.
