  • Mar. 21, 2018 1:30 a.m.

IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: This year you are unusually creative and dynamic. Others seem to identify with your self-expression. You might feel as if you are unstoppable. Remember that everyone has limits. If you are single, you will attract many different types of people.

You certainly will have your choice of potential suitors. If you are attached, the two of you join together to maximize your efforts. You have a lot in common. A fellow PISCES loves hanging out.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Embrace your Irish side today, or at least pretend to be Irish. You might want to play the role of the recluse. Be smart and honor your needs. Opt to lie low for a few hours; you’ll emerge feeling energized and ready to visit with others. Tonight: Be present in the moment.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Make an effort to connect with a friend at a distance with whom you are able to be more forthright. You have been wanting to have a conversation with this person.

Why not now? You could feel as if the effort was well worth it. Tonight: Do what you want, and you’ll be happy.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Focus on doing what is right rather than what you think will work. Don’t do something just to please a frustrating associate. This person will sense that your actions aren’t authentic anyway. Use caution if you do not want a volatile situation. Tonight: Let the party go on.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

You might think that a friend is off-base with his or her request. You will be in a position to see the results of proceeding as this person has suggested. Make your points clearly. Touch base with a loved one in order to get appropriate feedback. Tonight: Flow with the moment.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

You have an idea that you would like to implement. Present this concept to several associates who tend to think outside the box. Though you might not love their suggestions, their questions will prompt you to fine-tune your idea. Tonight: Try something new and unusual.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Defer to a partner, and let him or her call the shots this St. Patrick’s Day. You might feel put off that your desires are made secondary, but in the long run, everything will work out. Be less reactive, and don’t assume that you know the whole story. Tonight: Remain easygoing.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Fortunately, you know how to get along with the majority of people. However, a sense of irritation could be building.

The problem is that you are likely to personalize what goes on, when really it has nothing to do with you. Others are spirited. Tonight: Defer to a close loved one.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You might be at a point where you no longer can hold back. You want to let events unfurl as they may. Speak your mind, but understand that the other party involved is likely to do the same. Refuse to take any harsh comments personally. Tonight: Let go of disagreements.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You could be exhausted by the nature of a demanding situation. Rest assured that this problem is about to resolve itself. Don’t forget to join friends for some St. Patrick’s Day cheer. Your sense of fun emerges during a meeting or get-together. Tonight: Add some naughtiness.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You’ll want to relax and get together with friends. Someone might come along with an even better way to celebrate St. Paddy’s Day. You will have the opportunity to pitch in and help this person. A friend needs to share some news. Listen well. Tonight: Your popularity soars!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You have a lot on your mind. Bring friends together for some St. Patrick’s Day fun. Some people might want to head to an Irish-themed party. You will be delighted by what takes place. As the day continues, others get into the swing of the day. Tonight: Stay on the same page.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

You could be in a rush to achieve certain goals and clear out appointments. You have the ability to squeeze a lot into a very short amount of time. The more time you have to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day today, the happier you will be. Tonight: Expect be out until the wee hours.
