Cancer, you may feel tense with the activity around you

Horoscopes for March 22

  • Mar. 28, 2018 1:30 a.m.

IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: This year you are full of energy, and experience your life in a new light. You will focus on your communication with friends and loved ones. You even might sign up for a workshop on how to communicate effectively. If you are single, the person you choose to relate to now might not be so appealing in a year. Stay open to others, and try not to commit for a while. If you are attached, the two of you seem to enjoy each other even more. You will see a change in how the two of you relate. GEMINI often pops in and out of your life.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

You could be more in tune with what is going on than you realize. Return calls, schedule meetings and push forward any matters involving communication. Later in the day, misunderstandings might dominate. Take a step back from the chaos. Tonight: Lie low.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You can be possessive. If you find this tendency emerging, try to figure out what triggers it. Going within yourself usually works, as you can root out the cause.

In the next few weeks, be careful, as misunderstandings run rampant. Tonight: Do something that makes you smile.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Speak your mind. Your words will help clear up a problem. Your ruling planet, Mercury, goes retrograde today. Expect some misunderstandings. A blast from the past easily could appear. You might meet someone with whom you have a karmic tie. Tonight: All smiles.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

You might feel tense with all the activity around you. Be more direct in how you discuss a problem, but don’t hit anyone below the belt. A change within your community or at work could cause some stress. Try not to internalize any tension. Tonight: Make sure you go to the gym.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

You are flying high. Matters involving long-term goals will be tossed into the limelight. You might want to reflect on what you have taken for granted. You have changed, so your desires could have changed as well. Make an adjustment, if need be. Tonight: Out with friends.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You are in the limelight, and others appreciate your efforts. However, finding a point of agreement could be challenging. You might find the process long and tedious. Push this matter aside for a while, as your ruling planet, Mercury, goes backward. Tonight: Let go of problems.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

The more reflective you are, the more likely you will be to find out why others are being secretive. Say little, and listen a lot. Check out all the information that is being shared before taking action; otherwise, a problem could occur. Tonight: A change of plans is a good thing.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Keep your day and plans intact. Don’t be surprised if you need to make a last-minute adjustment. Be as clear with a loved one as possible, especially when discussing your relationship. Avoid a misunderstanding. Tonight: Respond with sensitivity to a request.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You are full of energy, but try not to direct it toward a grumpy associate or roommate. You inadvertently might set off a quarrel, which won’t be easy to resolve. Be smart and distance yourself.

You’ll discover how creative you can be around a loved one. Tonight: Do your thing, but be sensitive to a partner.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You might not have the answers you seek, but you do have information. Take time to make some calls for yourself, even if just to schedule a routine checkup. You might be concerned about a health-related issue; know that you will handle it. Tonight: Happiest at home.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You hear good news that you might want to share. Know that you are heading in the right direction. Both attached and single Aquarians could find relating to loved ones stressful in the next few weeks. Don’t worry, this is just a phase. Tonight: Allow your inner child to emerge.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your sense of direction will help push a project forward. Listen carefully to what those you are working with have to say. Remain open to the possibility of change. Refuse to stand on ceremony if you experience a misunderstanding. Tonight: Cozy up at home with a good book.
