Today’s horoscopes - Sunday, March 12

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There’s no joy in working for external approval. Even if you were to get the approval, the validation would be too superficial to conjure up any real satisfaction. For deeply satisfying results, do it for you.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If you’re not seeing the situation as a game, how will you play to win? Plan several moves in advance. A temporary move backward can lead to a giant leap forward.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Everyone has different tolerances. You regularly take on work that others can’t deal with, and there is also someone who would take the jobs you don’t want. All you have to do is ask.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). No one (including you) knows all of you, though many will want to know more today as the reserved mood you’re in casts a fog of mystery wherever you go.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If someone gets frustrated with you over something unimportant, it’s either not about that at all or not unimportant. Either way, you’ll meet frustration with patience, kindness and listening and defuse the whole situation.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). What you are doing must enrich people’s lives, or you won’t care to do it. The creativity and high standard of quality you bring to each endeavor will be essential to your success.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). For you, romance isn’t so much a feeling you have about another person as it is a way of life. Your affection attracts beauty, and your beauty attracts affection.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Anyone who is informing you by telling you how to feel is not informing you. This applies to matters of news, gossip, interpersonal communication, art, commerce and more.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Whether your efforts are good enough to win, to be popular, to please — this is not the point. The point is in making these efforts consistently and wholeheartedly until you finish what you started.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You will choose your best response to events from a range of possibilities. From a calm and centered place, you will have many more options than the person who is emotionally entwined in what’s going on.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). True love shouldn’t be stressful. It should relax you — make you healthier even. Love is healing. Amorous feelings have a mysterious way of adjusting your chemistry to support your immune system.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Avoid hearing or giving excuses; explanations will be equally unlucky today. On the other hand, it will be extremely lucky to acknowledge a less-than-optimal reality and describe how you’re going to make it right.
