Your Daily Horoscope for Friday, March 16
March 21- April 19
Do you want total freedom or careful conservation? Whether it applies to your work, a creative project, or a relationship, this is a question that pokes at you as you move through your life. In fact, expect to be downright torn over it. If you possibly can, spend time near open water to make your decision. It may sound crazy, but connecting with the elements can really help clear your head and show you what's in your heart.
April 20-May 20
May 21-June 21
Personal sacrifice will look like a public act today. You might be submitting to what society or the marketplace demands, or perhaps you're going out on a limb to show off. Who benefits from this quiet surrender or daredevil act of bravado? It depends on who's watching and listening to the splash, and who's downstream from the ripples. If you gain from giving something away, it's more of an exchange. Be satisfied, whatever happens. As long as you do your best, satisfaction can be its own reward.
June 22-July 22
Today, there's no need to be aggressive or to put your back into anything. Even the mildest, most passive effort is sure to yield brilliant results. You're a doting parent to your new creation -- you've tuned in to your heart, and you're receiving a very special transmission. Still, don't become complacent. You'll still have to turn all these beautiful, extrasensory perceptions into something concrete and practical. And you might have to try harder next time to achieve the same results.
July 23-August 22
Sometimes you don't know exactly what you want -- you just know things feel off, and there's something in your life in need of a major fix. This could be one of those times. You're making audacious demands on anyone and everyone around you, and you don't care if who can understand your motives. You figure it's better to ask for forgiveness than permission. Still, don't be surprised if your behavior irritates everyone else. Pay attention, because their responses will tell you about changes you need to make within yourself.
August 23-September 22
You're used to doing things the hard way, aren't you? At least, you're used to taking a detailed approach to any problem, project, or need, no matter whose it might be. That's a large part of why your friends love you -- you pay such focused, even fussy attention to every one of their feelings and desires. But Virgo, your strategy might be a bit labor-intensive. Try applying your fertile imagination and your famously objective mindset to your life today. You'll find it's a lot easier and more effective.
September 23-October 22
It's wonderful that you always have others' feelings and needs in mind, but at the moment, you're being far too lenient, Libra. Others find you malleable, and you're all too easy to manipulate. They might even sculpt you into a brand-new shape if you don't develop a backbone and a healthy level of suspicion. That's not to say everyone deserves the stink eye. But don't assume anyone has your best intentions in mind. If it feels like someone's trying to take advantage, they probably are.
October 23 – November 22
Today is perfect for retreating from the world and making big plans for later. Find a warm, discreet cave -- it can be one in your mind or, if you're lucky, a real-life retreat -- and withdraw. Take a pen, because you'll want your notes later, when logic returns. For now, Scorpio, your ideas and emotions are purely subjective, and that's good. You can develop your goals and lay out plans for the future. For intuitive, expressive types like you, this is pure fun. You're likely to entertain other people, too.
November 23-December 20
December 21-January 19
January 20-February 18
You've always appreciated shock value -- it's great for jostling people out of comfortable perspectives and challenging them to look at the world differently. But at the moment, you're viewing the world in a new way yourself, and you're not in the mood to be jostled. Instead, you want to take it easy and lose yourself in your imagination. If you have a lot on your plate, don't worry -- this won't be wasted time. Your fantasies could give way to some solid strokes of genius that will help you complete an existing project or launch a new one soon.
February 19-March 20
Your distant ideal may look a lot closer today. Even if it's just a mirage, a trick of the light or wishful thinking, take your inspiration from this episode. Mix visionary love and clear-eyed practicality as you pull together the resources that will get you through this time. Stay excited. It could improve your chances for getting closer to where you belong. You might attract romance or money with this attitude. And if you want to settle for something you find along the way, that's good, too. You can set and break your own rules.
