Rockie Horoscope 24

If you know your ascendant, read it too.GENERAL FORECAST: Aspiring to reach a higher ground, to break a box office record, to consume more green beer than is humanly possible, to look for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow are all legitimate challenges generated by the Jupiter-Neptune square underlying, or, if you will, undermining, the St. Paddy's Day weekend. How far can you go? How huge is the deception being perpetrated? Maintain an enthusiastic party attitude and the lucky Venus-Jupiter sextile on Saturday will deliver a sizeable reward. A picky Virgo moon might make you more discerning than usual, but full moon madness can't be contained, especially when it falls on western astrology's New Year's Eve, the last day of winter/first day of Spring. The moon reaches fullness Sunday at 8:44 p.m. PST, the sun enters Aries at 11:35. To mark the spring equinox, see if your egg can stand up straight.ARIES (March 20-April 19) Keep on keeping on. You have until the 22nd to stir up enough passion to follow through on what you started. It's not that you'll turn lazy once your Mars ruler leaves Aries for sensuous Taurus. Instead, you'll become more aware of which activities are the most profitable (both economically and esteem-wise) and which are hardly worth the effort. Putting your energy to its best use, especially since you'll have a lot of strength and determination after the sun enters your sign Sunday night, could be the single most important lesson you'll learn during the year of the Great Planetary Pileup in Taurus.TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Because April Bulls are especially fortunate this weekend, try doing something that's fun and a little risky that can capitalize on your good luck and looser attitude. Since the Virgo-Pisces full moon makes us all more sensitive to human foibles, the folks you attract might seem obsessed with their own specialities, but if you're willing to pay attention to details, you'll eventually benefit from this meeting. However, that might take another month or two. In the meantime, an infusion of energy after Mars enters Taurus on the 22nd.GEMINI (May 21-June 20)Don't push it. Your Mercury ruler is moving forward, but it's at a very slow pace. This week Mercury makes no contact of consequence except for an opposition to the Virgo moon the night of the 17th, around the time you start seeing little green men; hopefully they're merely leprechauns, not aliens. Being excruciatingly aware of your surroundings and the vibes everybody is emitting can make this full moon weekend especially rough on the nerves. Ignore the sexual tension between your partner and an artistic, compassionate client if you can; it could be your paranoia acting up.CANCER (June 21-July 22)The arrival of spring coincides with the mutable (as in moveable) Virgo-Pisces full moon, so if you're feeling antsy and have to go somewhere, anywhere at all, that's your justification. Adapting to a new set of circumstances is what mutable moons are about, but because the Moon Child's mood can change so quickly, you probably should take an experimental approach to what happens. Try an assortment of options before deciding on one. Just don't stir up the emotional soup and make your lover more jealous than usual. That'll be too easy.LEO (July 23-August 22)The last thing you need right now are people urging you to go the extra mile or to accompany them as they go over the top. This weekend enthusiastic Jupiter urges you to enjoy an extravagant entertainment to celebrate your sun ruler's last days in the old astrological year. The start of spring, no doubt, will heighten your spirit of adventure, so what's holding you back? Old reliable Saturn at the top of your chart, making work and family responsibilities a drag. A few more months and this, too, shall pass.VIRGO (August 23-September 22)The Virgo full moon this weekend can put you in the spotlight or under the microscope. It all depends on how confident you've been feeling since your Mercury ruler turned direct on the 14th, and how much attention you can handle without getting pissy. More often than not, and more than the other signs, Virgos prefer privacy to publicity. But with a preponderance of planets in the "other people" sector of your chart, it won't be easy to pull off your Garbo (another Virgo) imitation. Come next Wednesday, you vill (sic) be left alone.LIBRA (September 23-October 22)Happy and lucky, and carefree, to boot. Unfortunately these moods don't last for long, but while your Venus ruler and magnanimous Jupiter are in harmony this weekend, you'll have a wonderful time, win if and when you have to and make beautiful music, or whatever you create, together. Once Aries kicks in, the daily routine becomes more interesting, as do the people you attract. Some Librans will take an aggressive approach to diet and health, determined to whip themselves into shape now that spring is here; most won't.SCORPIO (October 23-November 21)Romancing the blarney stone pretty much sums up the St. Patrick's Day weekend for Scorpions searching for someone to love. You're in such a party-player mode, it'll be hard to keep track of your attempts at conquest or the tall tales you'll come up with to get what you want. For some reason, perhaps because we're in the last days of Pisces, all will be forgiven, at least until next Wednesday. That's when loving Venus and your passionate Pluto co-ruler get embroiled in a painful confrontation stemming, no doubt, from the sporting life you're leading.SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21)That ineffable something urging you to spread your wings wider, soar a bit higher and show that you have sufficient faith can get you in trouble. While delusional Neptune squares your expansive Jupiter ruler, you could use a safe haven, a sanctuary that doesn't cost a bundle. Otherwise, you'll put your money where your mouth is, even if what you're spouting isn't what you currently believe. This square aspect is great for spinning yarns, proselytizing and prophesizing, but the discerning Virgo full moon won't let you live a lie. Way too nerve-wracking.CAPRICORN (December 22-January 20)Cardinal signs like yours respond to the solstices and equinoxes like none of the others, so if you feel yourself being sucked into the events and emotions surrounding you this weekend, succumb. It's pointless to put up any resistance; nothing I see will harm you. Actually, you could profit on Saturday from friendly financial aspects; buy lots of lottery tickets or something luxurious for the house that'll appreciate in value. This full moon highlights your education and travel axis. Planning a trip during Virgo?AQUARIUS (January 21-February 18)You're not usually so involved in mergers and acquisitions, but �tis the season for Aquarius to reap what must have been sown quite a while ago. Ever since Mercury went retrograde last month, we've lost our collective memory, and although the Messenger turned direct on the 14th, it is barely moving forward. If you don't feel you're at your brilliant best yet, that's the reason. Not much is scheduled for this week, so if you have the time -- chances are you'll have the inclination -- do your taxes and other financial reckonings.PISCES (February 19-March 19)Go out with a blast this holiday weekend, celebrate the end of Pisces and the cycle of the seasons. And let the Virgo-Pisces full moon illuminate the nooks and crannies of your vast soulfulness. You'll have more than enough of the necessary wherewithal thanks to popular Venus in your sign pulling in prosperous Jupiter-types. In fact, too much of the good life could make someone (a controlling Scorpio?) jealous enough to create a scene in the middle of the week. Maybe all that illumination isn't such a good idea; who needs another scandal?Curious about the future?
