March 8 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: March 8
The Year Ahead
Forecast for March 2010 to March 2011
If You Were Born Today, March 8: You are hard working, responsible, and ambitious, and perhaps a perfectionist in the work you do, but also very personable. Your friends are especially important to you. Although you love companionship and make an amazing friend and partner, you do need time to recharge your emotional batteries, as you easily soak up the moods of those around you, which can be draining at times. Famous people born today: Freddie Prinze Jr., Aidan Quinn, Lynn Redgrave, Kathy Ireland.
Your Birthday Year Forecast: When a Quarter Moon occurs in your Return chart, as it does this year, you are at some sort of a turning point in your life, in terms of personal growth. Events that occur this year act as catalysts that get you in touch with some important issues in your emotional life. Your emotions run high, and mood swings or identity crises are possible. There may be some kind of conflict in your life arising from a great urge to do something different. The year ahead promises to be a busy, dynamic, and significant period in your life.
Jupiter transits your Sun this year, bringing more awareness of moral issues and long-term goals, as well as a stronger than usual desire to improve and learn this year. Optimism and confidence are with you, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve this year. You are more sociable and might meet especially helpful people during this period. Travel opportunities are more likely. Your broader perspective on matters this year keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses and strains.
With Venus conjunct Uranus and trine Mars, whirlwind changes in your love life and/or financial state are likely this year. It may be that you experience sudden changes or breakups with a friend or lover. However, the chance of a sudden new friendship is just as likely. At the root of this is a stronger taste for the unusual. What is familiar is less exciting to you than what is new and different. If a relationship seems to threaten your sense of freedom, you may have an easy time separating from it. Some fireworks in both your social and financial lives are to be expected. Pleasant sexual tension and healthy and friendly competitiveness is likely this year. Your magnetic appeal is very strong this year! Creative projects should fare well. Venus also widely opposes Saturn, however, and you might find that you encounter roadblocks that encourage you to slow down and change your plans before moving forward. Some of you will be struggling with letting go of the tried and true and embracing the new. You are reminded of responsibilities, which can sometimes feel like burdens, and this tug of war can lead to some indecisiveness.
Mars harmonizes with Saturn around the the time of your birthday this year, helping to ground you. Much can be accomplished this year, especially if you move ahead methodically. Work is solid this year, and you can see results from your efforts, or at least foresee success down the road. This gives you a sense of responsibility and a feeling of directedness and purposefulness. Traditional methods work, and thoroughness brings rewards. Practice or refining a technique is favored this year. The approach that seems to work best with this aspect is a step-by-step one, with modest ambitions and the appreciation of slow but steady progress.
Mercury conjuncts Jupiter and sextiles Pluto around the time of your birthday this year. You may gain some eye-opening new insights into your life during this period in your life. You are looking for something big and worthwhile to sink your teeth into, and you are likely to find it! Mental stimulation is essential to you this year. You can be especially persuasive and convincing in your communications, whether written or oral, and your perceptions are especially acute. You are inclined to do a lot of “digging”, researching, analyzing, investigating, and getting to the bottom of things. Increased psychological awareness of yourself and others can benefit you greatly, and employing strategy in your decision making is easier than usual this year. Relationships with younger people may be especially rewarding and meaningful.
Saturn is square Pluto in your Solar Return chart. This suggests a need for you to come to terms with your own powers of authority and your effectiveness. Power struggles, frustration, and manipulation are possible themes this year. You may desire change, but feel blocked by others or by circumstances. Alternatively, you may be attempting to resist change that is inevitable. Persistence will pay off in the end, and the need to adjust your expectations becomes obvious.
With Jupiter sextile Pluto, initiatives involving business, the law, and commerce are likely to improve for you this year due to increased personal influence, faith, and insight.
Personal confidence and hopefulness run high this year. Work is solid and brings slow but steady rewards. Even so, you are especially imaginative and creative, and channeling this energy into something productive can bring rewards. You benefit from practice and formal studies this year, if possible. Romantic relationships are likely to be changeful and exciting this year, and your personal magnetism runs high. It’s easy to find mental stimulation and to apply yourself to projects that you find absorbing.
