Horoscopes: Saturday, March 11, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The perfect thing for you now is a system that allows you to operate freely within it - even break out of it - because you know it's a loose guide and not gospel.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The key to being "on" in the moment when it matters may be in being "off" before it matters. Rest and recharge today for next week's success.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You'll deal with the difficult people again, because you're often the only one in your group who can. Just remember, the loudmouths are usually trying to hide deep insecurities.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The meditator aims to master the mind by emptying it. Logically, it would seem that fewer thoughts would be easier to manage. Lose yourself in your favorite activity.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It's like you're given a key today - just one, but one is all you need. The same key will open the door to a few different opportunitie. Go with caution, testing things out along the way.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). When you think you understand but don't really, it's worse than knowing you're clueless. The latter is a path for learning, the former an invitation for mistakes.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Stick too close to the tradition, routine or plan and the result will have less life in it than the zingy unpredictability of your inspired whims. Surround yourself with people who get this.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The Zen proverb says, "The wild geese do not intend to cast their reflections. The water has no mind to receive their images." Unintended validation, beauty and grace will be part of your day.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). In all matters of life, from choosing a mate to choosing a teacher, what matters is not that it's a perfect match but that it's a good fit.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). No matter how much money a person has, there will always be options that cost more. So don't wish for wealth; wish for wisdom.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). To seek "the" truth may be a waste of the day, as there are thousands of informational bits to sort through, held together by only the most tenuous threads. Instead seek "your" truth (also difficult, but less so).

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your fortunes will be augmented when you are sweet to your family for an hour, unless you are too busy: Then your fortunes will be augmented when you are sweet to your family for two hours.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 11). You don't have to know your way; the map is in you and the map is you. Friends will inspire you to travel. Family will provide you with a moneymaking opportunity so you can do it right. Next month: Rethink; revamp; remodel. June brings a fork in the road and a big decision, but don't stress; revert back to sentence one. Aquarius and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 4, 44, 48 and 1.
