Weekly horoscope (March 14-20)

Mercury turns direct this week



Pisces The Fish (Feb. 18-March 19): Jupiter will bring improvements to your domestic life. This may manifest in a new home or other property, such as a car. It especially favors home decorating or expansion projects. Opportunities to improve and augment family relationships will be presented.

For All Signs: Mercury turns direct this week, on the afternoon of March 17, after a particularly problematic retrograde period. Normally, the phenomenon represents communication and paperwork snarls, shifts in schedules and confusing messages. However, this episode of the retrograde has also suggested emotional difficulties as well: old and painful history, challenges to self esteem and issues we'd thought were laid to rest. Though not pleasant, the result of reworking these things is ultimately healing.

Other than Mercury changing directions, there are few aspects to discuss. So I am re-running a column on Jupiter, which will continue to travel through Gemini until late June 2013.

Aries: Opportunities for travel will continue. Relationships with siblings, roommates and/or neighbors are more rewarding and your overall daily attitude becomes more optimistic. Pay attention to communication (written or oral). Educational opportunities expand. You may become a teacher in your field.

Taurus: You likely have improvements in income or other personal resources, but optimistic attitudes concerning money could lead you to overextend. Your sense of self-esteem is increased as you demonstrate what you have learned in recent years.

Gemini: Jupiter in your sign will lighten any load, renew your sense of optimism and re-inforce your self-esteem. Cooperation from others will be more available, especially if you make your requests in person. The spiritual dimension of your life will improve and travel or education becomes more prominent.

Cancer: Any effort toward becoming more acquainted with the deeper parts of yourself will be well-rewarded. Positive results can be achieved through psychotherapy, meditation, hypnosis and/or prayer. Assistance will come through unexpected sources.

Leo: Effort invested in organizational or group social causes will be returned in bounty. Networking with friends and acquaintances may play an active role toward helping you attain personal goals in life. Relationships with other people's children improve.

Virgo: Any reasonable effort in the areas of career or social status should meet with favorable results during the next few months. There may be additional travel, or educational/teaching opportunities. Relationships to superiors will be more supportive. Opportunities develop to improve relationships with the family.

Libra: Jupiter augurs improvements and good fortune through legal or ethical issues, the Internet, higher education, teaching, publishing and long distance travel. Events of the next year will broaden your perspective on all of life and expand your sense of connection.

Scorpio: Gain comes through areas of shared financial resources. These may include compensation from insurance or other group holdings, increases in partner's income, sale of property, gains through inheritance or gifts, increase in the value of stocks, bonds or other mutually held property, or tax benefits. Intimate life is on the upswing.

Sagittarius: The next few months bring improvements in all your most intimate relationships. This may be the year to get married or develop a beneficial business partnership. The period is favorable for attracting positive assistance through professional consultants, e.g., doctors, counselors, etc.

Capricorn: Jupiter will increase physical vitality, heal anomalies and offer improvements in work conditions. Relationships to co-workers will be enhanced and equipment may be updated. This is the time to look for a better job (or it may find you).

Aquarius: The time has come to relax and let yourself remember how to play. All types of creative work will be enhanced. Give yourself permission to explore new possibilities in creative self-expression.
