March 8 Horoscope

Being a Pisces born on March 8th, you are well known for your intuition, sensitivity and self-sacrificing nature. Your intuition helps to guide you through all aspects of life, but especially social situations. While others struggle to pick up on emotional cues, your ability to read a person's feelings can be considered nearly psychic. These sensitive qualities have earned you many friends, but it is your selfless nature that makes you truly special. Your friends and family can recall numerous times when you put their needs far above your own.

Water is your sign's paired element and as a Pisces, you have the only mutable connection with the element. In many ways, your elemental influence allows your personality to take on the fluid and adaptable qualities of free-flowing water. This may help to explain why you are such an effective communicator. As is the case with all waters signs, your connection to the element allows you to gain understanding from the deep, rocky seas of emotion. The continued embrace of water's positive qualities will allow your compassion to grow and develop. If water's influence had one negative quality, it would be bouts of moodiness.

Neptune is the Pisces' ruling planet, but as you were born in the second Decan, or part, of the sign, you also receive a dose of the Moon's mysterious power. Neptune is the planet of refinement and subsequently, influences your compassion, vision and inspiration. In the same light, it is the Moon, the planet of reaction, that links to your sensitive, nurturing and intuitive qualities. More so than any of the other Pisces Decans, your combination of planetary powers makes you emotional and sensitive. You have always experienced emotions strongly and at times, you are just as effected by the emotions of others. While your tendency to take on the burdens of others is a testament to your compassion, it can become detrimental if you do not make an effort to address your own needs. Never lose your kind-hearted nature or your ability to see the best in people, as this is one of your greatest strengths.

Although there is no easy way to select a career, you are lucky enough to have natural abilities that can translate to success in numerous fields. Your compassion may take you into people-based careers, such as teaching, counseling or therapy. Similarly, your gifts for communication and honesty would be a welcome addition to the world of business, commerce or public relations. Your sensitivity may lead you to a career in artistic expression, much like Kat Von D, who was also born on March 8th. If the world of entertainment is alluring, you may take a chance at success in media or television, which was the path of James Van Der Beek, another of your celebrity birthday twins.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is famous revivalist conducting his spectacular performance in a huge tent. Embrace the benefits and excitement of displays of skill. You may be surprised to see how a performance can revitalize your own spirit.
