I think that everyone should express their most favourite poem at least once in their lives. Here is mine. Actually and honestly, it is the only poem that I know and have taken the time to memorize. If you want to know the essence of who I am then read the words of Rabindranath Tagore.

Obstinate are the trammels, but my heart aches when I try to break them.
Freedom is all I want, but to hope for it, I feel ashamed.
I am certain that priceless wealth is in thee, and that thou art my best friend,
but I have not the heart to sweep away the tinsel that fills my room.
The shroud that covers me is a shroud of dust and death;
I hate it, yet hug it in love.
My debts are large, my failures great, my shame secret and heavy; yet when I come to ask for my good, I quake in fear lest my prayer be granted.

Presently Venus is retrograding in Aries allowing you the time to revamp, refresh and beautify your existence. As an example I have Venus in Aries. Aries rules the head and face, while Venus rules the lower jaw. In the last two weeks I have had four teeth extracted, lower jaw of course. In the midst of this activity my glasses broke and now I have new teeth and new glasses and I’m smack in the middle of painting and restoring my home. Somehow and some way you should be following along the same lines. Make ready for a very lively spring season.

The time has come to put the past away and get on with the act and art of creating happiness and harmony. Yes spring is close and you may be restless as you struggle with what stays and what goes. By the way, the grass is not greener in the other side of the fence. It is the same grass and tastes no better. What I mean is that we don’t get to move on to the next thing until the karma we’re dealing with now has been worked out. This is a time in which the past may figure strongly anyway, as in a love from the past coming into the picture. It’s all good.

Life takes on certain intensity and much depends on how you handle yourself when the cards are on the table. Emotions come bubbling to the surface which is always distasteful to your average Gemini. Communications hit a glitch and a domino effect takes place especially on March 17 and 18. Honesty, patience and compassion get you through. Remember that a cut from a sword will heal in a short time but a cut from the tongue may fester for a lifetime.

While others struggle to make ends meet, opportunities just seem to come your way. You can slide by and just enjoy the times lolling on a beach in a far off exotic land. (Which isn’t a bad idea. Take your star gazer with you.) But then again, you may be wasting precious time as the stars are offering lots of opportunities for you to express your gifts and passions.

Whatever our story is or whatever our lot in life, we must remember that we signed up for it by our own thoughts and actions in the past. It not so much a time for retribution as it is for understanding our hand in the play. Life takes on a deeper meaning with much more value than in the past. The trick of the times is to “hang loose” and not freeze up with fear and apprehension. What is meant to be yours will be yours, not a penny more nor less. Romance and travel are in the picture.

Life intensifies throughout the week and it will seem like people are overly sensitive or insensitive and you will have to watch for both tendencies in yourself. March 16 to 18 tells the tale. Misunderstandings may take place along with delays and such. Patience, caution and a willingness to work things through will be needed. The rest of March and all of April carry a strong buzz of excitement, commitment, hard work and challenge.

Health and relationships are the important features for Libra. With Venus retrograding in your opposite sign Aries you may visit the past or a lover from the past shows up on the screen. Whatever it is, now is the time to redefine what you truly want out of life. March 12 and 13 are days in which the moon passes through Libra enhancing life in many ways. Find the balance and live within it.

The Moon visits Scorpio from March 13 to 15 just in time for the weekend. Although it starts with Friday the 13th. The stars are right for some good times spent with those that you love and appreciate. You will be busy as opportunity knocks in the days ahead. Business and pleasure both come your way throughout the month.

SagittariusThe last quarter square of the Moon occurs in your sign on March 18, heightening and intensifying everything. March 16 and 17 are similar. Agreements, contracts and other concerns regarding money and time come up and need to be dealt with. Slow and careful negotiations are needed. Try to see the big picture. Changes at work and home are indicated.

Home, family, your mom, education and other related issues and concerns take up the days. It is not the time to set the cornerstone of your building, but it is time to accommodate the reality that everything is changing and shifting and will continue to go that way for years to come. The problem when you reach the summit of your mountain is the journey back down. In essence it is a time of a great reassessment of all aspects of your life, which leads to a total rebirth of your spirit.

It is not how much you are worth that is important, as much as it is that you live a healthy lifestyle filled with the joy and freedom that you so desire. Drugs, sex and rock and roll won’t get you to where you need to be. Recent defeats are a blessing in disguise. They will make you stronger and will help build your character. At times even great wealth could be a hindrance rather than a blessing. The gods are in a mood to be generous with you if you get it right. Work towards the light.

You will be busy as can be as the Sun, Mercury, Mars and Uranus move through your sign bringing all kinds of activities and challenges your way. Big energy is here and must be utilized in a positive fashion. Work on your body, use caution with anything sharp and keep a healthy respect for fire. Attention behind the wheel is always important but more so throughout March and April. It is time to rewrite the script and allow the universe its say in the matter. March 16 to 18 are intense days that you should regard as important. Hampered communications, delays and such may come up.
