Astrologer Oscar Cainer lays out your weekly horoscope for the week of Saturday March 6th, to Friday March 12th, 2021.
We live on a spinning ball of molten rock which orbits the Sun at an astonishing speed, creating gravity to keep us all from falling off! Yet we see our lives as being stable and we imagine we know all there is to know about where we’re going and what we’re doing. It isn’t easy to keep this extraordinary situation in mind when we’re dealing with our day-to-day lives. But we should never forget that existence is a miracle. This week, the coming New Moon brings one or two of those your way.
Things don’t always work out as we want them to. We often end up having to deal with the repercussions of unexpected events. They happen, even when we’re locked-down, socially-restricted, and living less adventurous lives than normal. That’s not to say that your week will be full of reasons to think on your feet, but you should be alert to an issue that comes out of the blue and has significant implications. Something surprisingly good has the potential to turn part of your life around this week.
Although people who win arguments think they come out on top, real winners know better than to waste their time point scoring. They understand the power that comes from compromise; it creates a sense of unity. Logic might beat down the doors of intellectual resistance, but it doesn’t win friends or encourage harmony. This week, the ‘Dark of the Moon’ brings a time of thoughtful reflection. Rather than focusing on proving a point, if you seek reasons to cooperate, you’ll find them.

Some people think you’re overly sensitive. Yet while it’s true that you can easily be hurt, this is a sign of your insightful and perceptive qualities. You look beyond the obvious. You sometimes find hidden problems and identify opportunities that might not be quite so obvious to anyone else. This Dark of the Moon week, your ability to see the significance in something subtle but crucial works in your favour. It gives you a real advantage. Pay close attention to your feelings; and then trust them.
There are certain aspects of your life that seem to be out of your control. It’s as if they have a will of their own. When encountering this kind of energy, you have a choice; you can either respect it or resent it. What you can’t do is change it. Or, at least, not at the speed you’d like. You’re a Leo; you know that what some people call ‘impossible’ is just ‘difficult’. So what will you eventually be able to do about the situation you face? This week, if you just do as much as you can, you’ll see progress.
You’re under no obligation to live through the repetition of a familiar drama. Even though you might feel as if you’re going around in circles, if you look carefully, you’ll see that you’re not passing the points that you’d expect to see. When we think we’re just going round and round, we make ourselves feel dizzy; then we can’t be sure where we are! If you take advantage of the reflective time brought by the Dark of the Moon, you can straighten out a few key facts and make significant advances.
Imagine you’ve got a container full of liquid, but you need to have more than the pot contains. Now, suppose the contents are a concentrate? Then, you’d be able to add water (which you have in abundance) and easily make the volume you require. There’s no reason to shy away from a situation just because it looks as if it’s going to be challenging this week. The dark of the Moon brings innovative ways to find solutions. With a creative mindset, you can find ways to solve a difficulty with ease.
Even though few of us have the ability to read people’s minds, we all have psychic powers. How can both of the above be true? Well, we’re all born with such sensitivity that we construct defence mechanisms to protect ourselves. One of their side-effects is that we tend to gloss over subtle signs and signals. We decide that it’s hard enough dealing with our own feelings without feeling what others feel. This week, if you ‘pick up’ a message from the ethers, you can really help someone.
It’s frustrating when you can’t do what you want to do. You’ve had enough of feeling exasperated and thwarted at every turn. If it feels as if someone (or something) is working against you, a change of attitude will help. There’s a chance that you’ve struggled to understand a sensitive situation because you’re not treating it with enough respect. The cosmos encourages you to seek insight from someone wise. An infuriating situation can metamorphose into something inspiring.
There’s an inspiring biblical story about David and Goliath. It describes how someone little can stand up to (and beat) someone gigantic. If only it were so easy in real life! Yet, although it might not be obvious to you, someone in your world views you as being immensely powerful, and it’s having an effect on your relationship. If you take advantage of the celestial insight that’s on offer this week, you’ll be able to set their perspective right and have them as a friend rather than a foe.
You go out of your way not to let people down and would rather be thought of as unhelpful from the start of a project than disappoint someone because you can’t keep your commitments. The problem is that you’ve got so much on your plate that it’s impossible to weigh up all the options. With the Dark of the Moon bringing extra insight, it’s okay to be impulsive. You have the experience to assess any challenges; and will be able to effectively prioritise. Trust! You know what you’re doing.
Just because something’s big doesn’t make it more important. Size isn’t everything. Sometimes the biggest changes don’t have much impact on our lives; little things have far more influence. The issue you face concerns working out what size of challenge you’re dealing with. You’re wondering whether it’s still appropriate to instigate a decision you reached some time ago. Is it still relevant? Rather than tying yourself in complicated knots this week, trust your boldest impulse.
