Horoscopes: Friday, March16, 2018

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It may seem radical to think about what's in it for you first and then decide if giving makes sense. Many people operate like this every day. It's best for today.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Traveling takes planning. It's the plans you make long before you really must that will be the most economical. Do it now. It will help you ramp up the excitement over the months to come.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You never want someone you love to feel alone. Life gets busy today and there will be a lot competing for your attention, but nothing will be more important than the ones you love.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). When you and your partner are on the same side facing the problem together, it will seem small against your joint effort. But if you approach it separately, it will seem insurmountable.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The small dog goes ballistic when a larger dog walks by. This is insecurity in action. Feeling vulnerable can cause a loss of grace. One must be strong to be gentle.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Perhaps those who travel in a pack will be an intimidating group force, but each gives something up to have this kind of impact. Would it be worth it to you? You could be more effective as a lone wolf.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Natural phenomena can seem somehow otherworldly and miraculous. You're providing such a phenomenon today. Be careful how you wield your power.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'll do your best for the people around you, and you can do no better than that. Don't push too hard, but don't relax. Love and encourage yourself without getting too comfortable.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You need color and fun in your world. It's energizing. When you lose your sense of humor, you've passed the point of productive work. Take a break. It will help you keep going.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Self-generated restraint is honorable. You'll be credited for this sort of grace. They don't have to know why you developed it - i.e., you'd rather limit yourself than be limited by others.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Avoid gambling or speculating with your money today, as the current astral lineup could have you feeling as though you can't go wrong. Tomorrow will bring a more accurate picture of risk.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The bottom line is that you need to get to a top line. There's a larger spiritual and creative picture that governs your life, and you'll get a better vantage on this as you sail up and up through your imagination and intuition.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 16). The travel will give you a lucky start. Then you'll begin with your team. Whether assembled by design or the product of organic convergence, the result will be the same - working and succeeding at a common purpose. You'll love and internalize some of what you learn for your super solo jaunt in July. Cancer and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 30, 2, 22 and 14.
