Horoscopes: Thursday, March 2, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You often expect yourself to have immediate answers. No one else is expecting this of you, though. And besides, there's something beautiful in the space between knowing and not knowing.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When we're experiencing something for the first time, the passing seconds feel much slower. This magic loophole is why you can gain more time in your day by adding novelty.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There is a tantalizing sense of wonder that accompanies the day's events. It centers on a mystery that shows signs it might reveal itself.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Creativity is no longer solely the prerogative of supreme beings or the privileged elite. You'll prove this with your endeavors of the day.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Great machines have been built, and greater ones will be built, by way of human craft and appetite. But if you can fulfill your needs without a machine, the natural way will be better today.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your favorite part of a job is the part you can easily accomplish and readily share to typically excellent reviews. Save that for last. Success hinges on your willingness to tackle the hard part first.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). A sense of urgency may accompany your more challenging tasks. Try to see this as a timed game instead of a ticking bomb and you're likely to enjoy speedy accomplishment without stress.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A lack of routine will keep you from reaching personal goals. Consider making a weekly appointment aimed at certain results. It will build big things quickly.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There's a deal to be struck, but with whom? Before you start the negotiations, get a general sense of the distance between your bottom line and theirs. It's hard to get on the same page if you're not in the same book.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It requires more effort, but you take great pleasure in getting things right. Go over your work again and again until you stop catching the mistakes.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The basics are crucial. Don't skip what's essential. Getting enough sleep and proper nutrition will lay the groundwork for a stellar day in which the bad vibes bounce off of you and the good ones linger luxuriously.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Today will feature lively discussion. Take part, but don't take it too seriously. Leave your ego out of it, and prepare for differences of opinion that are rather extreme. Thinking and sharing keeps complacency at bay.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 2). A financial win right at the start of this solar return will set the tone. You used to believe that if you wanted something done well, you had to do it yourself, but what happens in April will change that. You'll be an integral part of a talented community. A detour in May will be an opportunity to experience fresh excitement. Taurus and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 30, 22, 29 and 16.
