Week of Feb. 29-March 6, 2012
This Week: Dave’s Doggie Den, 107 St. Louis, Rockford, is having an open house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., March 10. John Sawle from Doctors Choice will be talking about Dog Nutrition at 11 a.m. His talk will cover hot spots, scratching, ear infections, health problems, etc. Refreshments and giveaways will also be included. I will be there for sure.
The full moon in Virgo March 8 can create a sense of self-doubt or anger in others. Take it easy. An early warning for you: Mercury goes retrograde again March 12 and remains in this state until April 4. You know the drill. Be cautious with travel and communications, and allow yourself plenty of time to get from point A to point B. Unusual acts and strange occurrences will be evident this week. Keep your head low. Try not to feed into fear or challenge another who is not emotionally balanced. The cosmos could send someone like this off their rocker.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — You may need to open the door a bit for a loved one or friend. Lately, those around you could accuse you of acting like Cancer, the crab. In other words, you’ve been in your shell way too long. It’s safe to come out now. Friday, all eyes are on you. Finances begin to improve at this time.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — A family gathering could start a new foundation of love and expression. We all get overwhelmed with daily tasks and activities, and the time keeps rolling by. Precious moments are few and far between, and life is very short. A healing energy surrounds your home and family at this time. Take advantage of this aspect.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — An answer to a prayer arrives with career shortly. Upgrades with financial gain allow you to feel relieved and refreshed. You’re coming into an extremely busy time. Make sure you’re taking time out to rest and regroup. An unexpected loss may leave a friend or loved one spinning. Offer your love and support.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — What exactly are your fears with romantic connections? Why would you punish yourself and close yourself off when those around you want to see you happy? With love comes a tremendous amount of responsibility; however, the payoff is gold.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — You may be experiencing some regret regarding a recent decision. However, you need to get your feet wet first with this before you run in the other direction. Once you see the doors are opening, there is no reason not to walk right through them. Romance becomes a focus this week as well. Passion begins to kick up a notch or two.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Romance is not necessarily a substitute for all of the responsibilities you’ve had on your plate recently. However, it is a start anyway. If you can allow someone else to let you feel good or respect you, then it becomes easier to respect yourself. There is no more room for self-punishment in your life — delete it!
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Spring is in the air, and business begins to flourish. You have the “eye” for the perfect fit in your work environment, and others are recognizing your gifts. Unexpected public acclaim or recognition arrives at this time. Put your best foot forward, and dress for success. All eyes are on you this week.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — You’re tying up loose ends, and you’re able to enjoy some “free time” shortly. Take some time away to regroup and heal your overworked mind and body. You don’t have to alienate yourself to keep in check. You can balance your priorities, time and energy with ease now.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — This is a fabulous time to launch a creative project that has been sitting on the back burner for way too long. The ability Sags have to not put all of their eggs in one basket will be emphasized at this time. Many ways exist to creatively expand your finances, so take some risks and accept the payoffs now.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — If you feel a bit isolated, you may need to put yourself out there a little more. Some of those around you may be shutting down a bit to regroup. Try not to take any of this behavior too personally. Meantime, this allows you to explore new relationships and activities. Your personal life is getting ready to expand. Keep an open mind and an open heart.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Romance is arriving with more clarity. Now, all you have to do is keep your emotions open and honest. Don’t be afraid to wear your heart on your sleeve. You may be surprised that another finds you equally attractive and valuable. Expansion with career is evident. Take advantage of these options.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — You may be surprised when you receive a long-distance call or letter from someone from your past. This is a great time to emotionally catch up and get the scoop surrounding those you care about. Upsetting news may also arrive regarding the health of another. Keep in touch, and offer emotional support. The outcome may be better than initially diagnosed.
