Horoscope for 17th Mar

48

ARIES: You may feel circumstances are pushing you in a way you don’t want to go. But this is really a time for facing the bottom line and getting organised. You may have to backtrack and unpick mistakes. Definitely a time to push frivolity away and focus on duty. If you try to be over enthusiastic or too optimistic, you’ll end up having to come down to earth with a bump. If you stay with your feet on the floor, you should have fewer problems.
TAURUS: Relationships with certain people may not be that good since there are critical influences around which tend to show up flaws and inadequacies. But if you get pushed into a more self-disciplined mode, you will feel grateful at the end of the day because you create things that are more substantial. You are taking your responsibilities very seriously, but don’t get too obsessed with thoroughness. Maybe it isn’t the right time to take life lightly but you can also make it more difficult for yourself than need be.
GEMINIThe Sun is at a rather awkward aspect to Saturn, which could cause some delays, even some gloom and discouragement. Saturn often feels unlucky, because it doesn’t sort of bring results easily. But it does have a positive benefit in that it stops you, makes you think more realistically. You will be practical, more down-to-earth, really focused on the essentials. You can be a real stickler for fairness and justice at the moment. It stems from your strong concerns about creating a better society.
CANCER:Not everything is possible in life. Sometimes it is just a question of patience waiting till the tide turns and sometimes it is just about facing up to limitations, to what you can’t change. If you can accept one particular situation now as it is, then you will find it easier to handle. Develop a sense of humour and lighten up. You are seeing the flaws and the disasters and forgetting to see the benefits around you. Don’t nit pick so much.
LEO:It’s not a day to expect huge amounts of generosity or support from other people. You may have to work more on your own. Instead of getting into a gripe and a groan, see where you can use the time wisely to achieve more. Focus on narrow tasks that require attention to detail. You want to be in charge even in your love life at the moment, which may push away those you want to be close. Try to be less rigid or formal.
VIRGO:If you have concerns that are bearing down on you, making you feel you’re not doing as well as you want, give yourself a shake. Be sensible and admit if something isn’t working. You are taking family responsibilities very seriously at the moment. But maybe you feel you are not getting enough nurturing yourself. You tend to retreat into yourself, putting up defensive barriers, which will protect you but it will also cut you off from the warmth you want.
LIBRA:Try not to get too resentful if other people are holding you back. You often achieve a great deal more if you go slower. Out of what may initially seem to be setbacks can come something more useful. Flying ahead at top speed, cutting corners, can end you up going round in circles. You pride yourself at the moment about seeing life as it is. But remember that being realistic is not always about simply looking for all the flaws and inadequacies.
SCORPIO:If you feel that your life is trickier than other people’s at the moment, that probably isn’t true. They may just be hiding things better. Accept the pressures now as a way of holding you back in order to focus. If you concentrate you will find the answer. You are working conscientiously to make and keep what you earn. You know you will not be content unless your financial affairs are in order. You are quite rightly earning a reputation for reliability and common sense.
SAGITTARIUS:When something needs to be fixed, there’s no time like the present. Get cracking, push yourself over your resistance and then you will glow with satisfaction at the result. You are approaching other people on first meeting with a great deal of caution and reserve now. You probably don’t waste words. Others may find you a touch chilly and rather mistrustful but if they stick around long enough they will find you a loyal friend who warms up on knowing.
CAPRICORN:There will be a few restrictions about, or setbacks, even losses. There’s a risk that you may feel a bit low, discouraged perhaps. The best tactic is to face up to your duty and be conscientious. What is happening may seem negative, even unlucky, but it needn’t necessarily be bad. You just have to get into hard-working gear. You can’t duck and dive and leave all the chores to someone else. You are aware of a lessening of certain old ambitions.scop-icon-5
AQUARIUS:Don’t sit behind a brick wall and feel sorry for yourself. That will just make things worse. You have to break out of the vicious circle and find a way of bridging the gap. You like to think of yourself as a responsible member of your community and really want to put a good deal of effort into helpful schemes. Maybe you need to draw closer to like minded people so that you can all pool your energy and enthusiasm in some constructive way.

PISCES:There are rather wet blanket influences around, so this is clearly not the time to be flinging yourself unreservedly into parties and or passionate clinches. Just don’t get that weighed-down feeling. Be resourceful, get a grip, tackle whatever muddles or projects you have been pushing onto the back burner. You know that shortcuts will not work for you now. You have learned that recently through hard experience. What you sow is what you truly will reap. Your success, when it comes, will be built on solid preparation.
