missed you Mad Men

Yes Joanie everyone’s staring at you.  You know you’re not exactly at your fighting weight.

Try me. I should not be allowed to drink at work functions, or at all honestly. 

You don’t get to have this.  Go sit over there.  All you get to do is watch.

March 2012 Horoscopes

Pisces

Happy Birthday little fishies!  I have a special fondness for you.  Pisces usher in the last painful days of winter.  The time of Pisces ends with the vernal equinox and the dawn of spring.  Expect to walk a path that follows the trajectory of your sign in March.  A period of darkness comes before the light shines.  These dark days feel interminable.  Find a few highlights to look forward to this month, like a festival or concert.  Now more than ever you are focused on the future and what it has in store for you.  Continue to craft your destiny.  Fortify your current ideals and discard the flimsy, unsubstantiated leanings of the past.  Pisces must persevere to thrive.  Rewards are sure to follow.

Aries 

Over the past few months, circumstances and energy funneled to place Aries in a leadership position.  From this vortex you feel good, and this boost has increased productivity and ultimately heightened your desire for success.  Keep your ego and character in check.  Success and integrity are not mutually exclusive – quite the contrary.  Continue to take the lead, make mindful decisions, and gain esteem through your efforts.

Taurus

Bulls find themselves paired with Libras this month in a situation where you work together.  Even though you can be hard to get along with, Libras typically aren’t, so this may be the beginning of a beautiful working relationship between the two of you.  A less literal interpretation of the stars means Taurus must find balance in March, particularly in the areas of daily life, health and environment.  Taurus feels the full Moon this month and it inspires a change in dreams, hopes, and goals.  Even though you are not always a fan of change, soldier forward.

Gemini

In March, Geminis must speak their truth.  What do you need?  What do you want?  What do you know is true?  Share your wisdom and unapologetically state your point of view.  Rather than turning folks off, you will ease their insecurities.  Gemini’s natural problem-solving skills come in handy for those who receive the benefit of your company this month.  Share your bounty of intelligence.  Be especially careful not to overlook anyone.

Cancer

Crabs experience an influx of creativity in March and for several months after.  Working with family enhances and supports this surge.  Over the last month, outside influences have caused a shift.  Life has demanded that you recalibrate and reprioritize.  Cope with these new demands by preparing and maintaining a balanced and beautiful home.

Leo

In March, Leos ponder an investment, possibly in real estate.  Could this be the means to ensuring your future?  Could this opportunity free you to pursue your creative interests while securing lasting wealth?  Evaluate the deal carefully.  It may feel well outside your comfort zone.  Long-buried family secrets shake up trauma at home.  Maintain your guard and steer the family towards the clear.

Virgo

March brings a mess of chaos to Virgo’s life over the next month.  If you have heeded the advice provided over the last few months, your careful handling of financial resources is about to save your ass.  Good looking out.  Expect an unforeseen overabundance, extra cash in the drawer, an extra deposit, something of that nature.  This extra is a result of a secret, a secret that should be kept hidden.  Proceed carefully and with complete discretion.  Plan a trip to visit far-flung family for later this summer.

Libra

Libras may just have to swallow their pride and ask for help this month.  Some require financial need, others need emotional support.  Friends and family make themselves available, just be sure to lean on someone you trust.  As you receive gifts from once source, find a way to pay it forward to someone else in your life that desperately needs an upgrade.  Through your Librian influence you make people, things, and places more attractive and valuable.  Don’t let technological glitches twist your panties.

Scorpio

One of your worst qualities Scorpio is that you suck at taking criticism.  Like right now, you are bristling at that tiny disparagement.  When you overcome the kryptonite power of other people’s judgments, you will ascend to your highest self.  This month will be an excellent test.  A barrage of opinions will come your way like a season of harsh and unrelenting winds whipping at your face.  Scorpios hear every opposing opinion as a challenge.  Keep big picture plans to yourself.  Check in on old friends, and clean up any messes you’ve left behind.  Resolving past conflicts with integrity paves the path for a pure and clean future.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius experiences an unusual sense of self-limitation this month.  Usually free and confident, a cloud of self-doubt settles over Sags in March.  Are you hyper-focused on your own personal problems?  If you find yourself stuck in a negative mind-loop, hop the wheel and flee the scene.  Get sucked into all that noise and March will slip through your fingers as you piss it away wallowing.  Replace hateful thoughts with prayers and meditation.  Think about someone or something other than yourself.

Capricorn

After last month’s bitter disappointment, Caps take their dashed hopes and find new friends and expand their social circle.  A fascination with a new hobby or interests helps bring a new community into the mix.  This is an exciting opportunity to begin anew.  Amidst all these new social connections, don’t fail your current friends.  Relationship garden beds need tending; don’t let yours overrun with weeds.

Aquarius

Quite a bit of shine comes your way this month Aquarius.  Can you receive the glory with grace, or will you seek refuge from the glare of the spotlight?  Influential people take interest in you.  This is an opportunity for you to leave a major impression.  Enjoy honor and praise, and contemplate the possibility of professional advancement.  Whether plugged into the machine or making your way more independently, in March apply tactics for growth and personal satisfaction.

Portlandia

Portlandia, the newish sketch show from Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen, strikes right at the heart of the Nirvana generation’s collective ennui.  My affection for this super clever show continues to grow even though I got a late start out of some misplaced sense of loyalty to Elisabeth MossDon’t miss “The Dream of The 90′s,” a nostalgic musical tribute to the most memorable qualities of last decade of the 20th century.  Portland, where “All the hot girls wear glasses.”

Enjoy a hilarious skewer of arbitrary cutesy animal placement on fashion and housewares in “Put a Bird on It.”

Portlandia.  Do investigate.  Don’t let the collective ambivalence about Fred Armisen’s short-lived marriage to our little Peggy Olson keep you from the funny.
