Horoscopes: Monday, March 27, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You can't control how many times people acknowledge and accept you, but you certainly can control how many times you smile and acknowledge other people. That will tip the balance.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Sometimes, you need to speak your thoughts to know what you are thinking. It will help you to be around that friend who actually listens, too.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). To air things out is a very literal thing for you today. What's unwanted can be carried away by the wind. You'll change the energy of a relationship by conversing in the open air outdoors.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). This problem that keeps coming up is not so much insurmountable as it is persistent. Like a gnat, it can be handled with an swat - in this case, with the application of a specific tactic.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The absurd trivialities of life will annoy you if you let them. One way to avoid annoyance is to find something much bigger and so immersive that your perspective disallows petty provocations.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It's rare that a person intrigues and relaxes you at the same time, and you might be fascinated to know that you have the same effect, which makes for a rather irresistible attraction.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). What was once a vast and wondrous experience is now reduced to a segment of information in your mind. You condensed it to "good" or "bad" so it would fit neatly. Now it's time to unpack that bag, and see what's really in there.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Exploration happens best by accident. As you wander, trust that something of enduring value is out there for you to find. There's no map, only a faithful sense that you're getting closer.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). A small gesture will get you through the obstacle to the place you want to be. As philanthropist W. Clement Stone said: "Big doors swing on little hinges."

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You won't have to look long for beauty. The ordinary, everyday landscape will reward you for looking up. Unfortunately, many will be too mesmerized by glowing screens to raise their heads.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You'll be able to see what's available to you only through unwanting eyes. As soon as you want something from the situation, your vision becomes limited.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When you come to the impasse (and you will at least three times today), turn and walk in the direction of fresh air. The bright idea you need will be riding a zephyr. Let it hit you in the face.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 27). Because you are open to new experiences, you'll be a different person by your next birthday. Romance and friendship will accompany you in the months to come. In June, you'll want independence and adventure. You'll win and lose money, and in the process, you'll figure out how to win more often. Taurus and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 9, 30, 21, and 4.
