Your love horoscope for the week, commencing March 6th 2021


Astrologer Oscar Cainer lays out your weekly love horoscope for the week of Saturday, March 6th to Friday, March 12th.

We spend so much time trying to control our destinies. We labour under the impression that if we manage to do X, then Y will happen. But we’re not quite as autonomous as we like to believe. Life is full of currents; and if we choose to fight against them, they end up dragging us into places we don’t particularly want to go. Although some of what we dream of achieving is possible, some isn’t. This week, recognising when to let go will enable the pursuit of more meaningful, satisfying gains.

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but in seeing with new eyes.” French novelist Marcel Proust sums up the approach you need. You might not be seeking new lands; but there are some things that you need to see anew. We all allow our fears to grow out of proportion sometimes. And sometimes, something that appears trivial turns out to be of huge value. You may have run up against an obstacle, but the cosmos suggests it obscures an opportunity. Look again!

No matter our personal religious or spiritual beliefs, no one knows for certain what happens when we leave this world. What matters, is always the here and now. Although this doesn’t mean that we can’t plan for the future, it shouldn’t involve sacrificing the present. Living in the moment often sounds like an invitation to behave wildly or recklessly; what it really means, is that we have to wholeheartedly approach all we do. As we approach the New Moon, sincerity is the key to success.

Even if you’re unaware of it, there’s an indefinable ‘something’ about you. If it were a perfume, it would be promoted as a fragrance that bestows quick-wittedness, lively conversation and playful curiosity. It’s no wonder that social restrictions have been so tough on you and those who’ve been denied their usual contact. Now that ‘normal’ life shows signs of gently returning it would be easy for you to lose sight of your personal goals. Don’t be distracted by other folk’s needs. Give yourself the benefit of you!

We talk about the ‘fight or flight’ response – an automatic physiological reaction to a threat. It’s what protected early humans: if they couldn’t fight an enemy, at least they could run away. When we’re threatened or think we’re being threatened, the same response kicks in. Yet many of our fears are imaginary. And, when we hide away, we miss opportunities that might be passing by. As the New Moon approaches, the courage to shake off an anxiety allows you to benefit from one of these.

Astrological forecasts give indications of possibilities and suggest the best time to make decisions or take action. But those things don’t just happen. You have to play your part. If your prediction says that you might meet someone special, it will take some kind of action from you to allow it to come true. As the New Moon approaches, a rare opportunity to make a new connection – even in these socially-distanced times – presents itself. Your next move? Well, turn off the TV and get of the couch for starters!

Of all the Virgoan characteristics, patience, reliability and kindness top the list of your qualities. Boldness, daring and audacity are lower down. But this week, you may need to call on all your reserves in order to be the one who takes a risk. The coming New Moon, in your opposite sign, hints at a promise of a positive change in your emotional life. To make the most of it, you may need to make the first (socially-distanced of course) move. Be your most courageous self. The rewards will last.

‘You can’t calm the storm, so stop trying. What you can do is calm yourself. The storm will pass’. For someone who’s usually so good at seeing all sides of a situation, you’ve somehow allowed yourself to get too embroiled in an issue over which you have little control. If you take the above advice to heart, you can be the calm in the eye of the storm, perhaps even the peacemaker (if that’s what is called for). As the New Moon approaches, you can centre yourself. Someone will be impressed.

When someone turns to you for help, your natural tendency is to analyse their problem and discuss what they might do to get back on track. But it’s not always easy – especially when it calls for the person to realise that they’re part of the problem. Being a shoulder to cry on is one thing; but being an agony aunt or uncle is a different matter. ‘Being there for someone’ can mean exactly that… a presence someone can turn to. If you use your listening skills you can help someone find their way this week.

At the risk of telling you something you already know, you can’t disguise that you’re a thrill-seeker. If things are sailing along nicely you’re often the one to start rocking the boat. Mostly it works, and a good time is had by all; and when it doesn’t, rarely is any harm done. Yet this week, it would be wise to show some restraint. As we enter the Dark of the Moon, excitement, magic and thrills are on the agenda, and you won’t have to do anything more to get them started. Just enjoy.

Not everything we do is committed to our long-term memory. Our daily chores don’t stay in our minds. It’s the big stuff that sticks: passing a difficult test or meeting someone special. But even Capricorn folk can overlook significant moments. This week unearths a forgotten story that will set your memory buzzing. Something from the past is waiting to be rediscovered and it will lead to future enjoyment. In the approach to the New Moon, a spark of excitement has the power to ignite an old flame.

I know we’re just about to start the week, but you already have some idea of the highs and lows that lie in store. Yet you’re reckoning without the Dark of the Moon, that magical time when the silver orb disappears from our skies; when logical ideas, arrangements and fixed plans often get turned on their heads. You can prepare to make the most of it by being flexible and prepared to go with the flow. For the cosmos to work its magic, you need to start with a blank canvas, and have faith.

With the New Moon in your sign this week, you should be thinking of yourself as someone who’s being empowered with special abilities. The obstacles you’ve been facing are diminishing. You’re not bound by the same concerns now. In order to profit from the celestial climate, you need to be prepared to experiment with new ideas as well as reconsider old ones that haven’t worked before. Take the exciting opportunities when they arrive. You deserve to be living a joyful life.
