IF MARCH 9 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: During the next 4-6 weeks you sparkle, you shine and rock with the best of them. You may be more popular than usual or simply more willing to let your hair down and demonstrate your more progressive ideas in the real world. People may find you more attractive and fascinating, so this is a good time to make new friends or try out new age ideas, perhaps by studying astrology, religion, or yoga. By the end of May, you'll be ready to make major improvements in your life as you shed old and outworn obligations. Self-discipline will be necessary throughout the summer as you work diligently to live up to high expectations and worthy ideals.
