Horoscopes: Saturday, March 4, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Problems get solved today by devoting full attention in a creative way. An intense focus without any new ideas won't work. New ideas without intense focus won't work. Apply both.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Seek out those who are accepting, unthreatened by your talents and assets, undaunted by your shortcomings.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If you let your thoughts wander today, there's a tendency to brood. It's human nature. Counteract it with a busy day of distractions and delights.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You'll benefit from thinking of the "self" you show the world as a verb instead of a noun - as a manner of assembling the attributes and opinions handed to you early on.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Some of the humans you'll interact with today are so sensitive to emotion and tone that you may wish you were interacting with a robot who responds to commands without emotional baggage.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Trying to hide what you're feeling will lead to energy blockages that inhibit your performance. However you're feeling, it's right. Let energy flow so it can either dissipate or activate your intention.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). We live in a world of symbols, very few of which stand for what they actually are. Your thought into what things symbolize will help today's interactions.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The tests of patience that will do the most to expand your consciousness and mature your soul. To breathe, relax and be reasonable when the tension is high - this is evolution.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). As you move quickly through a problem, the rest may seem to lag behind. There's much to be gained from honoring the pacing of others. Observe and learn instead of distracting yourself away from the business at hand.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Can there be thoughts without a thinker? Some say it's possible, even optimal. And though they condemn the ego, you can bet there's much in yours that would be missed were you to join the ranks of the enlightened today.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You'll project yourself rather cleverly and be well accepted. If you also happen to be having fun with this, and are not too concerned about what others are thinking, you're winning all around.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). More art than science, history is colored by the values and beliefs of the teller. What you believe about the past will direct the future. Be open to hearing more.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 4). New reserves of determination open in you. You stop looking for opportunities and start creating them. Going on the premise that conditions will never be perfect, you'll push forward and build major success through your efforts. Next month seals a deal. May through July are the most social and romantic too. Gemini and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 28, 6, 40 and 17.
