March Madness: The results are in

Hello my Astrological Aspirers,

March is almost (but not quite) through, so it’s time for a little analysis and backtracking in order to figure out whether or not the month’s predictions were close to correct. According to the predictions on March 7 I was supposed to spice up the ol’ daily routine with a little spontaneity. My friend Anne drove from Dallas to a friend’s ranch and on the way she stopped through San Antonio. She called, so I left campus and met her at Mi Tierra and was able to meet all of her friends, which was great. I guess in a way that was spontaneous—though there were no shocking reactions provoked. On the tenth I was finally given the time to write my two essays due the next day, so I feverishly began those and pulled an all nighter, though I’m not sure if that would be called starting a new project the right way. As to the spurring on of unconventional ideas and events, there may have been a few—quite enjoyable—but no more than usual, as my life is usually plagued/blessed with unusual events. Oh, and I suppose I did experience some feelings of restlessness. However, they were pretty well taken care of when my friend Jenna and I went on a road trip to Nashville for spring break.

On to Taurus and love for March. According to the predictions I was supposed to feel like retreating from relationships and keeping away from those complicated messes altogether. However, seeing that that is how I usually feel, I don’t see how relevant that prediction was, except that it was correct.

As for my career, I was on Spring Break, doing no work of any kind for the dates allotted by the horoscope. While some of the moods felt were spot on, I really don’t see how a lot of the stuff about careers in this series of predictions was applicable to me Margaret Browne.

All in all though, March was extremely busy and extremely fun. I've had an awesome time during my sorority's orientation and although it's made doing homework a little more stressful, it's been worth it. And spring break was wondrous, driving to Nashville and going to Graceland were so fun and spending so much time with my best friend Jenna was amazing. If I really thought about it (which I am, of course, really thinking about it) I could make a number of events or feelings that occurred throughout the month of March apply to the scenarios posed by the horoscope. I could twist anything into fitting with the design, so here’s the message followers: horoscopes can be fun, but don’t take them too seriously. Especially pay no heed if you’re using them to make important decisions. While I really enjoy a good horoscope, usually predictions are a little useless; I prefer personality trait analysis and the like. I feel like that is much more indicative of a person’s nature and what will happen to them. As to whether or not their personality is determined by the stars, I don’t really know. But I have to say, I’m not so sure that I care anymore. I feel that I just might have outgrown my astrology phase.

Here is my beloved friendle Courtney as she sits next to me in study hall. Even though March has been tiring, it was also a frivolous delight. So I guess the end of March finds me now exhausted, but content.

March Madness: and I'm not talking about basketball

Hello my darling followers,

Today I decided to give us a brief change of pace. Usually I discuss horoscopes and astrology more in a general way: discussing personality traits and compatibility. Most of us, however, are more familiar with horoscopes in relation to those daily or monthly predictions for our lives found in teenybopper magazines and cheesy newspapers. So this entry we will be looking at the predictions for Taurus for March. I found these predictions on AOL horoscopes, written by Rick Levine and Jeff Jawer whom according to AOL are well-established and oh so professional. If you would like to look up your own horoscope go to http://horoscopes.aol.com/astrology/astro-forecast.

This March for me, Mademoiselle Taurus:

Your passion is aroused in unexpected ways this month, starting with your ruling planet, Venus, entering independent Aries on March 7 to spice up your social life with spontaneous actions that could provoke shocking reactions. The spirit of risk taking is reinforced when assertive Mars turns direct on March 10 after a twelve-week retrograde cycle that's been keeping you bottled up emotionally and energetically -- this direct turn enables you to get new projects up and running. This uncharacteristic restlessness is fed by the New Moon in Pisces and your 11th House of Groups on March 15: its close conjunction with mentally-active Mercury and electrifying Uranus presents fast-moving surprises with friends or colleagues that spur unconventional ideas and events.

Taurus Love Horoscope for March When You Least Expect It Love planet Venus, ruler of your sign, is moving into your 12th House of Privacy on March 7, which is good for advancing your personal life in quiet, out of the way places. You might also feel like retreating from the complexities of relationships all together, or you could have a harder time getting attention. It's best not to force something at this time -- with this transit it's more likely you'll find connections when you're not trying. Venus hits a rough patch from March 8 to 12 as she faces hard aspects with Saturn and Pluto. These tough planets require focus and intensity to deal with a difficult person or a down mood. Act carefully -- the impact of what you do now could be lasting. The bright light at the end of the tunnel comes when Venus enters your sign on March 31, promising easier times ahead.

Taurus Career Horoscope for March Learning to Adapt Your sweet ruling planet Venus dives into your 12th House of Secrecy from March 7 to March 31, making it more difficult to get attention or earn recognition for your work. The New Moon in your 11th House of Groups on March 15 could shake up a team or bring some radical changes. Mental Mercury's conjunction with inventive Uranus during this New Moon could create even more chaos on the job, yet it's also a chance to take a fresh look at how to work with others. The Sun fires into energetic Aries on March 20, which will put more wind in almost everyone's sails. Moving and thinking faster is likely to become a requirement, but take some time to get away from it all, if you can, to get a broader view of your professional life.

This month has started out as being extremely hectic full of activities and homework galore. However, I feel relatively content and peaceful, although a little bit overtired. So thus far, I’m not seeing a lot of evidence for these predictions. For the remainder of this month, I will be keeping track of my moods, activities, and other such things as I make my way through March. For my next entry, I will give an analysis on how accurate these predictions were, but also on how these predictions affected my outlook for the month. Because we all know astronomy as a well-established and scientific field of study, I’m sure we can expect the most accurate of results. In case you missed it that was the slightest bit of sarcasm.

Your Amateur Astrologer and Horoscope Half-wit,

Margaret Browne

Here I am as you know me now, before March has had a chance to throttle me. We'll see what I look like after all of these predictions have taken their toll.
