THERE IS NO-ONE more sensitive and creative than someone born this week. Pisces is poetic, psychic and certainly compassionate.  Because they have an intuitive or subconscious understanding of people, they often react to the pain and suffering of others so deeply they also feel the pain.

This may be one reason that anyone born this week needs time alone and they need to meditate.  And because a Pisces is extremely creative, the time they spend in solitude offers them a chance to develop their deeply held skills.

If the Pisces is not able to withdraw from the negative that sometimes surrounds us, they can develop a need for artificial ways to release their stress.This water sign is ruled by Neptune, which offers the opportunity to be extremely creative and artistic or a creature addicted to a make-believe world, known as substance abuse. So the creative energy of a Pisces would be well channeled into the arts, rather than any place else.

People born this week: Ron Howard, March 1, 1954; Jon Bon Jovi, March 2, 1962; Jessica Biel, March 3, 1982; Chaz Bono, March 4, 1969; Eva Mendes, March 5, 1974; Tom Arnold, March 6, 1959; Willard Scott, March 7, 1934; Freddie Prinze Jr., March 8, 1976.

Meryl Streep, who won her second Oscar for Best Actress on Sunday night during the 84th Academy Awards, is a Cancer born on June 22, 1949. She won a previous Oscar for her Supporting Actress role in The Deer Hunter. She is a far cry from many of the movie stars of today. She hasn’t been in rehab and her four children seem to stay out of the negative limelight. Ditto her husband, to whom she has been married since 1978.

Another young man in the limelight today is Jeremy Lin, who is shining on the Knicks basketball courts. Jeremy is the first Asian American to make it to the NBA. He is a Harvard graduate who was born on August 23, 1988. That makes him a Virgo, and they are always known to love their jobs.

Aries (March 21 to April 20) You just can’t stop life from happening now, so why try? If you are feeling the need to create some noise it might be smart to spend a little time alone. You just need a different view of what you want your life to be like now. Change is just around the corner, so make a plan.

The Many Arts Of Atlantic Highlands

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Perhaps you have been living in the wonderful world of make believe. If so, it might be wise to take a breather and find yourself in the midst of the turmoil you created. This is no time to stir up trouble. Try looking the other way by ignoring the nonsense and you will end up in a better situation.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) If you must make a decision, make it now  — otherwise wait until-mid April. After all, Mercury, your ruling planet, goes retrograde on March 12 and that is no time for you to consider making any important decisions as it will lead to making a wrong move. So slow down and think before you make a move.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) You may not like getting no for an answer, but it will happen this week. Try accepting the fact that you are not in control 100 percent of the time and you will feel better. Just know that your final goal is to be patient and learn to take things as the come along.

Leo (July 21 to August 20) Right now, the only person who can cause you trouble is you. The way you see situations will determine how you handle them. So try for a kindness week and stay away from anger and jealous games. You will be much better off when the week is over if you handle it that way.

Virgo (August 21 to September 20) An idea you have been carrying around with you is about to bud. Once you let it happen, you will love the results. Don’t stand in your own way because you will not get the best results if you do. Be good to yourself and let some new folks into your life.

Libra (September 21 to October 20) You may have a few challenges right now but if you avoid the drama and do what you do best, which is the social, you will end up the winner. There is no reason you should put your neck on the block for someone who does not appreciate you. Don’t do it.

Exhibit Uses History To Fight Against Hate

Scorpio (October 21 to November 20) This week there is not a Scorpio alive who is not looking for some answers. Your answer should be mind your own business and offer no advice to anyone. You are in no way responsible for anyone else’s decisions, so mind your own business. The end result will be that you reach your goal.

Sagittarius (November 21 to December 20) With Mars in Virgo, life should be moving along at a rapid pace. To keep the energy positive and you on the high road, it might be comfortable to ignore some old friends. Just look the other way this week and life will cool down. You can expect romance to also enter your life.

Capricorn (December 21 to January 20) Turn up the heat on your own goals this week or forget about the race. There is no way you are going to win the game unless you put more effort into it. An old friend could be plenty of help. So without telling too much, let him join your team. There is plenty of money at stake, so be careful.

Aquarius (January 21 to February 20) Your efforts to get things done are gracious and should bring you the success you want. Just go slowly and understand there is no need to hurry and force any issues. Let your higher power guide you and you won’t go wrong. A good friend could serve as a catalyst in the journey.

Pisces (February 21 to March 20) Life will take on a special dreamy glow if you let go now. This is a great time to help others find their way and in doing so you will definitely help yourself. This is the magic of Neptune in Pisces. Life can turn around and start to really look golden. Let it happen by relaxing.
