Anyone born this week is officially a Pisces, but they are born on the cusp of Pisces and Aries.


This combination of the water sign, Pisces, and the fire sign, Aries, is totally contradictory.


Pisces people are soft-spoken and sensitive, while Aries is an outspoken, devil-may-care personality.


So this week’s Pisces birthday person is sometimes confused about his real persona and comes off this way to others.


But once the Pisces gets the combination clear, this water sign persona is a rich combination of fire and water. In other words, if the fire sign gets out of control, the Pisces can put a damper on it and life calms down and success comes.


The Pisces personality can take over now and you have a sensitive, outgoing, warm and loving friend. This friend will say it like it is but, because they can do it with a Pisces touch, most people can accept it and love what is said.


People born this week: Kat Von D, March 8, 1982; Mathew Gray Gubler, March 9, 1980; Carrie Underwood, March 10, 1983; Lawrence Welk, March 11, 1903; Mitt Romney, March 12, 1947; Neil Sedaka, March 13, 1934; Albert Einstein, March 14, 1879; and Eva Longoria, March 15, 1975.

There is a new moon on Monday, March 11, but wait until Mercury goes direct at 4 p.m. on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17. As you hold off starting anything new while Mercury is retro, know that timing events has a great impact on the final results.


Aries (March 21 to April 20) You can expect some life-changing events to start to happen within weeks. The activity may be a tiny situation at first, but you can be sure it will bring some eye-opening moments into your consciousness. Be wise and don’t ignore anything happening now.

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) You may want to simmer down your strong opinions this week. Saying exactly what you think may backfire on you within weeks. Be supportive of your pals, but avoid giving advice. This is no time to put your two cents into anyone else’s problems.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) It is time to use discipline and accomplish exactly what you set out to do this week. The only thing to avoid is starting something new since it won’t work well until after March 17. You might as well save your time and energy. A new friend will impact your life for the good.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) A new relationship could be in minor trouble but, if you are able to demonstrate patience, it could turn out to be an important part of your future. Avoid letting the opinion of others influence you right now. You are one smart individual and can map your own agenda.

Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) Mars joins Uranus in Aries this week. This will put you in a perfect spot for good things to happen. So slow down until March 17 and then you can take advantage of the good energy headed your way. Just remember don’t burn all your bridges until later in the month.

Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) As life continues to change, don’t get lost in the happenings. It is time to trust your own power by getting the right people to help you. By standing your ground and knowing you are right you will win the first battle. No matter how things look try and smile.

Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) Don’t be pushy now because it is totally out of character for you. Be pleasant and know one of the new folks you are meeting will become a long lost BFF. Your life is about to open up and new opportunities are coming your way. Happy times are headed your way. Don’t get too busy to see them.

Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) You have a few obligations that need to be completed. Work at making the time to complete what is started and don’t let anything or anyone get in your way. Then by the end of the month you can start a new project and expect your biggest real success.

Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) As the ideas for a major project continue to pour forth from you, don’t share too much. You need to avoid negative feelings because they could create future burdens. The best way to move forward with your relationships is remain calm and silent. May be hard to do, but it will pay off.

Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) If you continue to say little and mind your own business, you will make it through the latest upheaval in your life. Watch the top players wheel and deal and then try to do the opposite. You are more secure and smarter than they are. So just watch and be ready to pick up the pieces.

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) You have an awesome proposal lined up, but it is not time yet. Try being as patient as possible. If you slow down and get really serious, the plans you have will blossom and provide you the challenge and income you really want.

Pisces (Feb. 21 to March 20) There has been plenty of opportunity headed in your direction, but take it slow and decide what it is you really want to do. The activity around you can sometimes be overwhelming. But, if you just play it cool, you will be the winner and select the right path.
