Horoscope Weekly: Mar. 7 – 13
By Samantha Perkins
Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19) – Monday is a great day for new ideas and activities, and as the week continues, count on your ambition and enthusiasm to drive you forward with those new ideas. Just don’t get too preoccupied with how your actions might be taken by others. Instead, you should focus on getting things done. Thursday and Friday are still great days for action and advancement, but your focus may shift from yourself to giving and receiving help from others. Over the weekend, you can help yourself by helping others. Maybe try volunteering somewhere with friends or family.
Taurus (Apr 20-May 20) – You may have a hard time trusting others at the beginning of the week, and maybe you should pay attention to that. Risks taken right now probably won’t pay off, and you should be watching out for your own priorities. On Tuesday and Wednesday, make plans with others. You’ll be energized from socializing, and you’ll learn a lot from your friends. Take the end of the school week to forge ahead with your own plans, but this weekend, don’t go solo. You’ll have a much better time hanging out with your friends than sitting in your room watching Netflix.
Gemini (May 21-Jun 21) – On Monday, you’ll get the most done, and have the most fun, if you’re accomplishing tasks with a partner. However, alliances may become troubled as the week continues. This weekend, focus on yourself and your creativity. Are you a good artist? A good musician? Maybe an awesome dancer? Take the weekend to cultivate those talents.
Cancer (Jun 22-Jul 22) – You deserve to do something for yourself on Monday! You’ve been so busy with others lately that a little R&R is well-deserved. Some quiet time is especially appealing. In fact, that introverted manner will continue well into the week. You’ll want to work things out on your own, rather than ask others for help. This weekend, your introverted behavior will subside somewhat, and you’ll desire to hang out with your closest friends. Go out to eat with them, or have a sleepover.
Leo (Jul 23-Aug 22) – Romance is on the rise on Monday. You’re full of fire and flirtatiousness as the week begins. Add in a burst of high energy, and people will be falling at your feet. Your confidence and charisma will continue at full capacity, giving you the drive to get what you want (as long as you’re willing to help others get what they want, too). Towards the end of the week, look out for potential conflicts. Your ego may get the better of you right now, and thinking too highly of yourself would only get you into more trouble.
Virgo (Aug 23-Sept 22) – Obligations and obstacles seem to be getting in your way at the beginning of the week, and you’ll just need to go with the flow. If you do, the week will improve from there. All your hard work and planning will finally feel like it’s paying off. Over the weekend, slow down a bit. Sleep in later than usual, take a walk, or laze around with some friends.
Libra (Sept 23-Oct 22) – At the beginning of the week, your communication skills will be exceptional. Use this time to explore big ideas and let others know what you’re really thinking. As the week continues, you may feel the depressing pressure of old problems, but don’t give into this bad mood. You’re too good-natured to indulge in whining. At the end of the week, you may feel like it’s time to take on something new. This weekend, look for beauty in life’s little things, and share that perspective with someone else. Perhaps you should go for a nature walk. You never know what beautiful things you may find!
Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21) – Your week begins with an overdue surge of impulsiveness, although you should try to avoid taking unreasonable risks. Later in the week, talk to an authority figure about getting something you want (perhaps spending a class period outside in the nice weather?). It’s likely they’ll concede to your request. At the end of the school week, peace at home could be disrupted by unexpected outbursts from someone. Keep a cool head and try to find creative ways to solve the conflict. Over the weekend, do something that will put you back in touch with your younger self. Climb a tree, go to a playground, or build a fort with a friend.
Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21) – At the beginning of the week, all your best qualities are doubled. Your playfulness, optimism, and good-natured charm are causing people to swarm around you. You may find yourself feeling a little more conservative as the week continues, however. The end of the school week is a great time to try new things and meet new people. This weekend, you may find you accomplish a lot by staying at home.
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19) – At the beginning of the week, you’ll find that anything is possible with a little perseverance. Throughout the week, your proficiency for planning continues to save the day, and people will be impressed and amazed by all that you’re able to accomplish. Towards the end of the week, you may feel like you want to switch things up a bit; don’t be afraid to be spontaneous. This weekend, work on getting closer to your friends. Have good conversations and learn more about them.
Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18) – You’ll do your best work, and have the most fun, if you can connect with others who want the same things you do at the beginning of the week. You may start to feel a little worn down as the week goes on, but a big boost of energy and inspiration may hit you at the end of the week. This weekend, put yourself first for once. Do things for you, because it’s been a while since you’ve been able to focus on yourself.
Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20) – Fortune seems to favor you as the week begins, provided you’re smart and attentive about how you use this streak of good luck. Just be sure to think before you speak. As the week continues, people may look to you to be a leader. You shouldn’t have a problem picking the proper path to follow. Towards the end of the week, you’ll have the urge to help out just about everyone you meet — and you just might pull it off. Remember, sometimes all you have to do is point people in the right direction. This weekend, indulge yourself.
