Horoscope

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Today’s event is no spectator sport. Don’t sit in the stands; you’re the main attraction. As for how you’ll command this audience: You are fascinating enough, just by being yourself.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). In some arenas, the negatives don’t even come close to outweighing the positives. So why are there so many people who have opted in? It’s a matter of ego, really. Don’t let the popularity fool you. Steer clear.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). To admit that you have judged another person too harshly in the past is an indicator of spiritual largess. It takes superior character to realize when your character has been less than superior.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You can guess all the livelong day, but you won’t really know how much you’ll enjoy doing something until you’ve tried it.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You have something unique to add to the situation. Because of this, you’ll carve your own niche. People will help you take your notions and hunches from conception to execution. How gratifying!

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Creativity is often about solving problems that other people don’t see. Because of this, you’ll tinker and toil in solitude for some of the day, but you won’t be lonely, as this will be extremely engrossing work.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The magician isn’t making up the trick in the moment. She’s been practicing for months, maybe years, to be able to pull it off in the seconds when it matters. The same goes for your performance today.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Don’t lose heart if you’re not winning in the early stages of the game. Stay engaged. Keep your eye on increased performance over time and eventually you’ll be brilliant.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Love has a way of surprising you, but you can’t count on these found moments of romance to carry a relationship. Create a space for love to thrive instead of expecting it to crop up in the cracks of your frenetic schedule.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). People can say “business is business,” but what most businesses do, ultimately, is help people with the things that personally matter to them. In your book, it’s never “just business.”

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Every area of your life affects every other area. This is why when you spend time instilling a sense of structure, rhythm and purpose in one area, other areas will benefit, too.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). To be a physical being is to be limited. Gravity is among our most prevalent oppressors, yet humans have found ways to defy it. Philosophical question of the day: Is the illusion of freedom better than the knowledge of oppression?

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 15). This is a year of bringing it all together. You’ve borrowed the best of what you liked in others, and now you’re assimilating the qualities in a superhuman way. Next month brings new financial channels, and May features adoring eyes on you. Style upgrades will affect your professional life. Aquarius and Leo promote you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 45, 3, 28 and 41.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: ”I’m a Virgo whose self-esteem is really low, and I’m depressed. My husband works all of the time. I’m a virtual assistant by day and I take care of our school-aged son in the afternoon and evenings. All the housework, bill paying, etc., falls on me, and I don’t think I do a very good job of it. I love my husband, and I know he’s doing his best so we can keep our heads above water financially. But it doesn’t change how tired, hopeless and lonely I feel most of the time. What can I do to get through this strange time?”

Virgos are among the finest caretakers of the zodiac, though they sometimes forget to take care of themselves first. They often take on too much, with too high an expectation, and succeed at it nonetheless — but at what cost? It is particularly challenging for Virgo mothers to make their own needs a priority. But if you’re not loving life, you’re not setting a good example for your son, either. Bottom line: You need to make yourself happy every day, as a rule. So make a list of what you love and what makes you smile and gives you pleasure, and do something on it every single day, no exceptions.
