Horoscopes: Thursday, March 23, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The spirit of adventure is alive in you. You'll raise eyebrows and get attention from people who wish they had the guts to take on life the way you do today.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You don't get to choose family, colleagues or neighbors. When you can be friends with someone you didn't choose, it feels like the universe is on your side.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You'll make something interesting happen socially, something no one was expecting. Because of you, the other person feels empowered to take a risk.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). If one person is calling all of the shots, no matter how brilliant this person may be, the situation will not be as stable as a scene with a few diverse leaders who can balance one another.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There is magic in your writing. You can really use it today in a number of possible directions. Writing things down can make them more real, easier to let go of or harder to forget.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You can't be completely known, because you're not one definitive way. Different environments and people pull out new sides of you. Today it will feel like you're deciding who to be with every little choice you make.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). No one likes to be criticized, but right now you really want to know you've been seen, that others are trying to understand what you do. If they have a critical opinion, it will ultimately inform and help you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The events you'll deal in today may only be important to the players involved. Outsiders wouldn't understand. There's a good feeling attached to knowing you are on the inside.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There will be a great level of complexity to your dealings. There will be rules to follow, stated and unspoken. The more sensitive you are to the latter kind, the less you'll have to abide by the former kind.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You may not be in the mood to "be yourself" today, and if you want to be someone else for a while instead, you'll find a way to do this playfully and ethically.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Destroying someone's illusions is just as damaging as destroying personal property. To respect a person is to respect the mythology that the person lives within.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There's pleasure in work and work in pleasure. Right now it will be easier for you to extract the joy from difficult endeavors than it will for you to take the difficulty out of joyful endeavors.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 23). It's not enough to know. This year you'll act on what you know and greatly benefit from this, too. Sometimes it's better to live through it than think through it. Love will surprise and change you in April. May is for reconnecting relationships and healing family karma. August brings a financial breakthrough. Gemini and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 2, 14, 33, 38 and 27.
