For the week of Mar 3rd - Mar 9th: You are creative, inventive, and highly charged up about a new assignment. You’re actually happy and thrilled about a work related matter. And, actually, without this work situation, you’re wouldn’t have met the person you’re about to marry or have already married. Good fortune, good people, and for those of you celebrating FAT TUESDAY, your good luck seems to rub off on them, and vice versa. On Wednesday (Ash Wednesday) you may have a smoky smear on your forehead, but will be dressed impeccably, thanks to Jupiter going direct, making you the discreet, privacy-loving, polished principessa. This week strongly urges you to have sophisticated nail, hair, and makeup. Leave cute designer nails for some other time. It just doesn’t work this week. You need to look like Wonder Woman, competent, committed, and ready to work however many hours are needed to accomplish a goal. The 8th is a day to celebrate, because Mercury FINALLY comes out of its storm phase. You really feel the difference on Saturday and Sunday. Of course, Sunday does have one big difference, starting at 2 am EST: that’s when Daylight Saving Time begins, and all your clocks and watches need to be moved an hour ahead of where it is now. Grrrr…. Weekly touchstones: Mandarin Citrine, “Cracked” White Quartz.

For the week of Mar 3rd - Mar 9th: I love competition and the thrill of the hunt, but rarely raise my voice, mellifluous as it is, while negotiating a deal, debating a contender, or talking others into seeing things my client’s way. I put people at ease. They trust and like me. Going in, they assume that all in my profession are evil, lying snakes in the grass. But I change their minds. I am extremely well prepared, respected among my friends and colleagues (many who become my clients) and never, ever lie. In fact, one of my most useful tools is proving that a certain troublemaker has been lying for ages, and have the newspaper and magazine interviews to prove it. I also include the TV interviews with the scoundrel that he/she is fabulist. With a little provocation, I can put this fool in front of others (slanted one way – far away from him or her) and ask if he/she ever thought that so-and-so was a liar, a big spender, or a cheat. Depending on the people in the audience, he’ll say anything to suit their needs. That’s when I pause, and ask him to repeat that once more because “I missed part of it.” So he/she does. While he/she is preaching away all credibility, I’m getting the computer (big screen) ready for what he said on several national news shows. And of course, it’s the dead opposite of what he said to these good and honorable people. I rest my case. Weekly touchstones: Alexandrite, Red Jade.

For the week of Mar 3rd - Mar 9th: People ask for my help when they’re behind the 8-ball and their brains have turned to mush. I save the day, time after time. I can multi-task with a smile on my face and make a routine into something creative, fun, and make the end result turn out better than any one before me. My excellence, however, has gotten me into a jam. I’d like a quiet day with no one bugging me or pestering me I’d like to relax, maybe take a nap because my mind goes into overdrive in the middle of the night. Whether it’s my spouse’s snoring or “the barking dog” that seems to follow us everywhere we live, I don’t sleep that well. This week, I need to say no with conviction, like I mean it and there are no other options except to ask someone else to take that job. I have a huge family event that means a lot more to me than a fundraiser that is well-intentioned but always attended by the same women with the same hairdresser, very similar couture and must have had Terrence McKee or Ana Molinari apply their spray-on tan and makeup. They look great, but the money raised for hungry children is a fraction of what each woman spent on her grooming, appearance and expensive couture gown. I’ve grown tired of it all and want to do something meaningful with my life. I could be a wedding planner. That has all kinds of nonsense associated with it, but I know all the right people who can make sure the bride and bridal party all look gorgeous but not overdone. Just delightfully picture perfect. And I can arrange the right place to put up relatives flying in from the hinterlands, make sure they have maps and phone numbers for restaurants and appoint someone to be the chauffeur. I do so well on my first assignment that word gets out that I’m the ONLY wedding planner to consult. Oh – I always make sure that the bride receives a complimentary full body massage, facial, mani/pedi and a leave on hair treatment that is removed the following day by the hairdresser. My friends are my best allies for getting the word out. I work very hard, am paid very well, and my spouse is so proud of me. Weekly touchstones: Red-Violet Rubellite, Yellow Diamond.

For the week of Mar 3rd - Mar 9th: I love to take care of others, be the one that makes them smile or giggle, and assuage their fears. I am a human comforter, and I’d be a wonderful nurse or doctor or therapist because I really do care. Doctors as so busy and have so little time to spend with each patient that nurses often fill in the blanks, call in the reports and recite the meds to the pharmacy inside the hospital. Nurses are the hands on people that see and clean up the bedwetters and other incontinent patients, and they are remarkably kind. This would be both heartbreaking, and tremendously rewarding for you. You WANT to help others. It would be difficult to watch a favorite patient of yours die. It’s very difficult to deal with sick babies who don’t make it. But aside from the sad times, nurses are the essential workers in every hospital. Without them, patients would feel abandoned and wouldn’t get the help they need. Consider nursing whether you’re male or female, because you are a natural at healing and caring. Weekly touchstones: Lavender Jade, Pink Quartz.

For the week of Mar 3rd - Mar 9th: Get real comfortable with COMPROMISE. Think about that. There have been times when you lost a bidding war because you were so convinced the other side would cave that you refused to compromise. They won. You had to start looking for someone/something new. Being stubborn in business doesn’t work. And it keeps you stuck. You won’t push forward and refuse to listen other others’ suggestions, shutting them down with, “I know a lot more about this business than you do, so I don’t need or want your advice.” One down, and word gets around, “Don’t even suggest anything to so-and-so. She hates advice!” So think about it. You not living the way you’d envisioned. Things are tough and you blame others for your misery. It’s time to own it. These are YOUR feelings and opinions, and knocking down people like bowling pins will never upgrade any business any where in the world. Rethink the way you work with others. Are you stubborn and assume there’s only one way? Do you argue or debate someone interviewing you for a job? Can you see the self-defeating process this is? Most Leos are singing a happy tune and doing extremely well in their careers. Some are control freaks, but the successful ones are smart enough to negotiate with an open mind. Just consider changing the way you deal with people. This one element separates the successful from the impoverished or angry. Weekly touchstones: Black Tourmaline, Lazulite.

For the week of Mar 3rd - Mar 9th: Although Mardi Gras (alias: Fat Tuesday – even the drinks are fattening) is distracting for most of your cohorts, you keep your wit where it belongs: in the deepest recesses of your imaginative, yet pragmatic mind. So you’re ahead of the slow moving, gettin’ drunker and fatter as they pillage over sweaty blobs on the sidewalks and in hotel lobbies. If you’re not from NoLa, this belching legion of gas bags (*Caution: do not light matches near a gas bag!) are utterly disgusting. But it’s opportunity time for you, genius that you are. While they’re twitching, getting sick and scratching their horrific nether regions, you’re interviewing to be the next VIP with a trusted group of teetotalers that view you with dignity and respect. They don’t allow your stunning appearance to distract them from your sales records with other companies, your skillful way to organize groups that get action for smart, important causes, and your enjoyment of pointing out where the smallest hairpin misspelling or arguable mistake is. Your new employers have needed someone like YOU: a lovely, bright, light that brightens up the room in an instant for ages. Now, they’ve got YOU! Sign a deal memo binding them to hire you on March 8th. That gives you plenty of time to move, get a different apartment, and make school arrangements for your kids, if you have some. It also allows one big party to celebrate your brilliant and desirable new job. Congratulations for a well-deserved job! Weekly Touchstones: Indigo Blue Sapphire, White Diamond.

For the week of Mar 3rd - Mar 9th: You have all the qualifications a boss or decision maker is look for. There is nothing powerful enough to separate you from the job you’ve drooled over for years, wishin’ and hopin’, dreamin’ and schemin’ – except for one thing. You don’t think enough about yourself. You don’t think you’ve earned such recognition and don’t believe in yourself. Therein lies the problem. Your lack of self-confidence is palpable. People feel and sense it. There is no makeup or wardrobe that can disguise or change your thought patterns. This is your project. Look, lovely Libra: you are a sponge that soaks up everything within shooting distance – and you have a magnifique memory, both short and long term. Think LONG TERM. Think about your children, their hopes for the future, their luck, and uncanny timing. Do you foresee a bright and brilliant future for your tykes? And now the hardest part: If your parents have outlived their own parents, and are fit and full of life, they’ve invested money, thought, and time, planning for long term care and how they wish to die. Uncomfortable subject to ponder or discuss – but you MUST discuss it. You need to do what they want you to work with the hospice group and tell them that mom and dad cannot and refuse to continue living without their freedom. Because they are so accomplished and have legal rights on the design, and a bag bigger than Santa’s of rights, regulations, and content, family members will inherit the business when they die and are free to move homebase anywhere they choose. Multiple locations are likely. Everything is up to date, just like your mom and dad and you feel very cheer, visit the homebase office and sit everyone down for a two minute announcement and several hours if partying, all well deserved. You let them know that their jobs are safe and the best sales people will toting more money in their wallets as soon as the next payday. And let them know that you are opening other branches and ask for their suggestions. You will make your parents, so smart and wonderful, VERY PROUD of you. And yes, once they’ve passed away, frequent visits (from their spirits) are likely! Weekly touchstones: Emerald, Fancy Pink Sapphire.

For the week of Mar 3rd - Mar 9th: You do better being the boss. You prefer to train people until they pass uber-inspection, than to lower your expectations and settle for “work that passed all inspections.” How totally mundane. Your work must be spectacular, practically an art form, and a David versus Goliath tale time and again. When you see that a friend of yours is in trouble, you step in, make the mess disappear, and clean up all evidence that indicated trouble happened at that location on a particular time and in a particular way. You don’t break the law. You live by the law but you have no issue when it comes to using the law to make your case airtight. Whether you’ve were one of the most heralded students in college or intuitively answered commonsense questions, you win, while others break down and whimper like- like something out of a “The Sopranoes” episode. You best days to have the best results whatever the issue are Monday from 2:16 pm EST onward, Tuesday isn’t part of this picture because it’s Mardi Gras, Wednesday all day works wonderfully for you! Thursday waves a wand moving Jupiter (in your legal sector) go direct. So what does that mean? It means you’re so ready, you’re scary. The weekend begs you to shove paperwork into your desk, lock the up the desk, lock up your office and exit like a magician on a mission. One of those missions may be to make one pest just go away for an extended period of time. He’s taken enough money from enough innocent people. On the 8th, you are done with Mercury’s post retro storm, urging you to celebrate, have fun – and most of all, don’t worry about anything! Weekly touchstones: Paraiba Tourmaline, Black Tourmaline.

For the week of Mar 3rd - Mar 9th: There are the usual assignments that you know must be completed, but additional assignments that will make extracurricular activities impossible. Brace yourself for feeling a bit like a lab rat, running as fast as possible, but getting nowhere at all. At least it seems that way. There is a method to this madness Monday brings amazing progress in a situation that you thought had been settled. Not true. There’s still work to do to polish and tie up loose ends. There are still additional bit of information about your clients or former clients. Because you live by the rule that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, this puts you in a no-win situation. Thursday is one of your most successful days. And there’s Saturday: the day that busybody Mercury finally moves out of its post-retrograde Storm. Uncork that champagne NOW!

For the week of Mar 3rd - Mar 9th: If anyone in the zodiac can keep personal and professional activities separate, it’s you as well as Scorpio. You’re even better at it than Scorpio. That is saying something! At any rate, someone you met because of a business connection of some sort really clicked, fast than a microwave can heat up last night’s coffee. And as long as you don’t want everyone yapping about this (and it always comes back to you – and you HATE it), don’t discuss your private issues with people you work with, for, or periodically. This is your life. If and when you decide that it’s time to take the next step (Saturday, March 8, 3:19 pm EST - or anytime after midnight Saturday evening), just DO IT! Sunday, the end of standard time and the morning (2 AM EST) when you “spring ahead in spring time.” Groan…. Your extraordinary love life is a whole lot more intriguing than daylight savings time. We all wait in awe and wonder…. Weekly touchstones: Pink Mordenite, White Pearl.

For the week of Mar 3rd - Mar 9th: You’re so on point on Monday especially between 2:16 pm and 10:56 pm EST. You can talk others into snapping out of their preconceived notion about a project. That’s been the stumbling block right along. They missed the part that mentions that astrology was the first form of psychology, that royal births were immediately cast and charted and discussed in depth with the King and queen. Oh, and they skipped the chapter that mentioned that the American and French Revolution occurred when Pluto was in Capricorn….just like NOW. It’s heartening to know that these alleged editors are finally reading something that is timeless, honest, and a way to map a lifetime for the very best, something in the middle of mediocrity, or downright bad to the bone. So while editors play catch up and waste time, you’re way ahead of the game, already have envisioned how you’re gonna sell this like bartender sells booze. People want booze, just like they’ll want what you’re selling: the key that open the doors to the future and beyond. Weekly touchstones: Tin-White Tellurium, Chatoyant Dark Tahitian Pearl.

For the week of Mar 3rd - Mar 9th: You take the reins, whip the horses and get the coronation coach on time – exactly on time. You take all duties very seriously and wouldn’t dare forget anything or leave any details unfinished. Yes, you can be a perfectionist, especially if others are involved. You’re less concerned about yourself than you are others. You also have a powerful friend in an influential position who has helped move this project away from the bottom and up to the top spot. That’s where it belongs. You know it, speedreader that you are, and the writers do as well. The boss knows it too. There’s just one problematic whiny voiced troublemaker that others have shut out of meetings and stopped listening to. Why? Well, for starters, she makes no sense. She bring up things she did in the past and compares them to now. What is the friggin point? Your hope is that she gets a good job at Target and goes to the other side of the country or may out of the country. You’re less inclined to gorge yourself with beignets and wine on FAT Tuesday, and more inclined to get more in touch with your spiritual side on Wednesday. Thursday is superb! Void of course Moon = no big deal! Whoopee! (At least today.) Mostly harmony reigns on Friday, and the 8th (Saturday) pushes Mercury out of the dumpster and into the fully functional zone…. At last… And you’ve earned it. Weekly touchstones: White Alabaster, Green-Yellow Anatase.
