Horoscopes: Thursday, March 16, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Today is for thinking ahead. Begin the process now (while you're upstream from the destination) so that you'll have what you need when you need it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Paradoxically, humility is among the least-popular virtues, but those who adopt, understand, and live it are among the most-popular people. It takes confidence to be humble.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your work, process, role may be different from your colleague's or loved one's position, yet you both struggle with the same obstacles. There's a way to work together for mutual benefit.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). When everybody tends to his or her own business, news is scarce. If the helpless are being harmed, step in. Otherwise, few instances require intervention.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Investigations aren't just for solving crimes. Explore positive things too, especially the qualities and habits that might lead you to attaining your goals.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There are some unhealthy situations in the world, and some of them you have to deal with regularly. Don't let it stop you. It's up to you to make a change and go where you can grow.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). As for that person with whom you can't seem to sync: This is nothing personal. What's going on is that you're not hearing the same music. Don't try to impress, but search for common ground.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Some are offended by the colloquialism "whatever" - almost categorizing it as a curse word. At the very least, it represents disrespect and faux apathy, two things against your nature.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You can't do it all in one day, or even think of it all in one day. But you can keep a list. There's something lucky about committing plans to writing.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Knowledge alone won't make you any more effective than knowing the fundamentals of a dance will make you a dancer. This is why you practice.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). People who take responsibility for their actions once are likely to do so again. The reverse is also true. You'll make an important decision, and an accurate character assessment will be key.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). "Duty first" is your guiding principle. Furthermore, you'll put your own agenda aside to do what your friend needs. Just don't leave yourself out entirely. What you do for your own enjoyment makes the world better, too.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 16). You'll flip the script on your inner world this year, seeing yourself as humbler and yet more powerful, and richer yet with less to contend with. April brings an exciting venture complete with big responsibilities that will be a joy to keep. May and July bring the chance to learn about your loved ones in new places. Sagittarius and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 1, 7, 13, 22, and 48.
