Horoscopes March 11, 2008

Why is the wise sun in Pisces the celestial savior? The fishes have always been associated with deliverance, recovery and healing — with a caveat. We must dive into the sea of emotion to find our salvation. As the sun transits through the fishes, by facing the shadows of our emotions, we can escape any peril caused by the outside world.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You tell people how to see you, and they choose you based on the message you subliminally send. You now make the subconscious conscious in order to empower yourself.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your dream of success is real. It exists. It's just waiting for you to join it. Keep trying to find the right entrance. Push on all the doors until you find the one that yields easily to your touch.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Whatever seems complicated doesn't have to be. All that's necessary is a little distance from the problem so you can see the simple truth. Friendship and love follow simple rules. You get what you put into it.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). If you don't have the abilities you think you need, don't beat yourself up. Relax. You're terrific at being a beginner, open to learning the way children do — duplicating actions without over-thinking things.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are able to convey your thoughts clearly. Even if the words aren't right, the emotion says it all. Your willingness to communicate even when you feel awkward will create more love in your life.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 11). Your birthday gift from the stars is an extra dose of fun and adventure spread throughout your year. This month, you'll be buying tickets and making plans for an exciting summer. New channels of work open up in April. Seven important changes transform your routine in the fall. Family depends on you in September. Libra and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 32, 14, 28 and 36.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You can expect to be seized by a fierce case of deja vu. But this is the last time you'll visit the situation in quite this way. A flash of insight into your own behavior will break a pattern for good.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Hidden feelings are aired, and someone is bound to surprise you. If you feel the same, congratulations. If not, an honest discussion will restore the balance and bring agreement.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Courage and creativity are the two most attractive qualities you can cultivate. Unlike beauty and cash, courage and creativity can build, instead of fade, over time.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Daunting prospects ahead produce a strong reaction from you — maybe even a tantrum worthyof a 3 year old. Parent your inner child by giving yourself a little time out.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Give your all, but don't give more than your all. When you overdo, you deplete your resources and work against yourself. Instead, just do your best. Your best is enough.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You are known for your vivid imagination, which you use to both solve problems, and create them. Either way, you fascinate the people around you, and they delight in the quandaries or solutions you weave.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You deserve to have what you want — not approximately but exactly. Be as specific as possible, and stand back in amazement at how precisely the universe was listening to you.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Pisces Sharon Stone's desire to take on emotionally dynamic roles, dramatically different from past ones, may be attributed to the planet of awakening, Uranus, hovering over her Pisces sun. Her new choices showcase the smartly defiant and oft inappropriately spunky spirit she's channeling. I bet those who know Sharon intimately have observed her interests change with her evolving identity.
