Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, March 16th
This is a power-packed day as the seventh and final Uranus-Pluto square rocks the world. This transit began in 2012 and its ramifications will reverberate for years to come. However, we may underplay our cosmic hand as clever Mercury squares off with hard-nosed Saturn. Fateful energies are at play as Venus forms a pair of otherworldly septiles. And the Moon’s shift into futuristic Aquarius at 6:13 am EDT prevents us from lingering in the past.
(Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Frustration arises as your most ingenious ideas meet the stone cold reality of unchangeable circumstances today. However, facing insurmountable resistance might not be enough to stop you from trying to get your way anyhow. The lesson you need to learn now is critical, even if you don’t want to hear it. Your point of view isn’t the only one that matters. Be open to the feedback you receive and incorporate other people’s perspectives into your own. Being brilliant is easy if you take the time to listen.
(Apr 20 – May 20)
A communication problem comes back to haunt you today, especially if it escalates into a major disagreement. In fact, this could be such a drawn-out power struggle that you might need to retreat to gather your thoughts. You won’t likely find a quick solution, but your dogged persistence may win your opponent over in the end. The right amount of stubbornness can be just what the doctor ordered. But you must know when to call it quits if you really want to move forward.
(May 21 – Jun 20)
Your life takes a definite turn for the better, but not until you first face a problem or two that might take the wind out of your sails. You may not normally be so serious, but you’re not likely to be happy-go-lucky when you’re struggling with obstacles that you have set in your own path. Stick to the facts today without assuming the worst. But be willing to step into unexplored areas on the map to gain the most from this tumultuous cosmic storm.
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
Being satisfied with your current circumstances might endow you with a somewhat lazy attitude early in the day. Nevertheless, a little restlessness could be a strong motivational factor by the afternoon. Even if you don’t think you’re ready to embark on an adventure to the unknown, at least you can be the one who stirs up a bit of excitement at home. Anything that catalyzes a larger shift helps you gain a renewed passion for life.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
You may feel as if your life is separated into two opposite parts today. The first piece of the puzzle can be rather serious as you deal with a difficult situation at work. Others might see you as a stick-in-the-mud now, but you’re not ready to surrender your position, however unpopular. Luckily, the other part comes into play if you maintain your integrity and pass this test of character with flying colors. The joy in your personal life is more than enough of a reward for your extraordinary efforts.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
The real world impinges upon your fantasy life today, forcing you to rein in your imagination. However, cerebral Mercury won’t leave you alone with your thoughts, making it twice as hard to follow your heart. Your inner voice judges nearly everything you think now, making it difficult to let your mind roam. But you might feel stuck, even when you try to stay on track. Ironically, accepting your own limitations empowers you to break free from the current restraints. Fly, baby, fly.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Steer clear of any friends who tell you what to do today because they can end up costing you valuable time and energy if you listen to them and ignore your own common sense. It’s not that others are purposely misleading you; it’s just that they don’t understand your scheduling constraints. Your previous commitments are more extensive than anyone else realizes and how you manage your day has wider ramifications than the present moment. Set the tone for the future by establishing practical boundaries and adhering to them no matter what temptations you encounter.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Although it seems as if your choices are limited today, you can still make the most of the present moment if you’re willing to adjust your expectations as you go along. But you may be in a weird mood because you don’t know whether you can trust your own instincts now. In theory, it’s safer to rely on the facts until your intensity settles back down. However, in practice, you might not be able to wait. Make a list of all your options along with the pros and cons of each before making any drastic moves you regret.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
There are so many creative ideas you want to pursue these days, it’s nearly impossible to contain your exuberance. Unfortunately, you can’t follow every road just because it might lead to another rainbow. Rather than attempting to fit everything into your tight schedule, be flexible about what you include. Although you can’t control all the variables at play, conserving your energy today increases your chances for long-term success. Powerful cosmic dynamics are at work now, so willingly go with the flow instead of fighting it.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Thankfully, you won’t have to spend the day playing catch-up if you’ve been doing your job all along like a responsible Capricorn. Instead, you can finish your obligations pretty quickly today and then have the chance to dive into something new. However, you might not feel free to do exactly what you want. If an emotional issue surfaces with a family member now, take the time to resolve it thoroughly before moving on. A closer connection is possible if your intentions are pure and your conscience is clear.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
When friends and peers expect you to do something in particular, you often rebel. You prefer doing things your own way in your own time. However, you may not have an opportunity to choose today. You can work yourself into a state of frustration by resisting other people’s demands. Nevertheless, it’s much easier to just do what you should so you’re free later to do whatever you wish. A little cooperation goes a long way toward cultivating an atmosphere of mutual respect and trust.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
It’s time to take your work to the next level, no matter how much you have already accomplished. Unfortunately, you can’t just wish your way up the ladder of success. You must be persistent while demonstrating your competence. But if you do encounter an insurmountable problem, just view it as a sign that you must make a fundamental change to your current strategy before proceeding further. It’s much more effective to have your ducks in a row prior to attempting to manifest your dreams.
