Horoscopes for March 23

  • Mar. 23, 2018 1:30 a.m.

IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: This year you want to achieve a long-term goal. You communicate with exactitude, yet others often misunderstand you. Learn to confirm key ideas exchanged, meeting places and times. Avoid getting into difficult predicaments with bosses, in-laws and others. If you are single, now through September, you might meet someone special. This person will light up your life. If you are attached, the two of you relate well and enjoy each other. You have your differences, but you learn to respect them.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Listen to what others say, and communicate back with care. Misunderstandings could occur with greater frequency. Be sensitive to others’ needs. Avoid a tense situation in your professional life, and embrace your desire to enjoy the weekend. Tonight: Keep it light and easy.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You might be overwhelmed by what is happening. A power play or a legal situation could have you on edge. Stay calm, and find someone trained to help you with this issue. Once you speak to the right person, your stress will ease. Tonight: A sudden awareness makes you smile.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Trust yourself to do whatever is necessary to get past a difficult issue that involves shared finances. You could feel as if the other party’s determination is likely to wear you down. Surprises occur around certain events. Tonight: Go with the moment, and start the weekend well.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

A friend might suggest that your moodiness attracts strong-willed people. Others seem to want to run the show. Ask yourself if this type of personality works for you. Avoid getting into a power play with a difficult person. You’ll need to have patience to win. Tonight: Say “yes.”

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Emphasis is on receiving what you want. You find people to be quite amenable, yet at some point in the day, you could be on a collision course with a partner or co-worker. Take time to schedule important checkups and meetings. Tonight: Join friends, and let your hair down.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Keep reaching out to someone you respect who could be an authority figure; a boss is a strong possibility. Messages easily might be misinterpreted. A statement meant one way comes off another way. If need be, calmly ask for clarification. Tonight: Just do not stay home.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Your curiosity comes out when meeting someone from a different culture. Be careful, as you might not realize how flirty you can be. This person might misread your gestures and words. A family member needs more of your time. Tonight: Let someone else call the shots for now.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Emphasize your priorities when having an important conversation. You put organization into a project. Know that others are grateful. Keep a conversation on an individual level. Smile, and let stress melt away. Tonight: A close friend or loved one surprises and delights you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You will be surprised by how rampant conflict seems to be around you. Try to be more open and compassionate. You might not agree, but if you can respect what you are hearing rather than be critical, you’ll make a big step. Tonight: Enjoy the people around you to the fullest.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You know more about a personal situation than you are sharing. You’ll pitch in to make the issue easier. Do not push others too hard — it won’t work for you or for them. Avoid being controlling or demanding, and the results will be better. Tonight: Spend time with a friend.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You might hit a jolt at some point in the day. You could be involved in a tense situation. The other person is into having control. Ignore this person’s power play. Go off and make plans that will delight you. You could hear some surprising news. Tonight: Be naughty and nice.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

You might not be as confident as you would like to be.

Expect a problem to arise with a family member. The issue might be new, but the contentious tone of this person is not. Seek out different ideas as to how to handle this matter. Tonight: Invite a couple of friends over.
