If Your Birthday Is March 16

Hockey player Jannik Hansen (1986) shares your birthday. You are practical, realistic, and yet, highly imaginative. It’s important for you to hold to your beliefs. You are generally a fortunate person. This year something you’ve been involved with for about nine years will end or diminish to make room for something new. Take it easy and learn to serve others. This is a good year to travel.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Doubts and worry might grip you and affect your relationship with a female acquaintance. Don’t fall victim to the paralysis of the negative! This is a powerful year for you because both Saturn and Jupiter are in your fellow Fire signs. Huah!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today you might have difficulties with an older or more experienced friend, or someone in a group. Furthermore, these difficulties might be public in the eyes of people in authority — parents, bosses, teachers and VIPs. Just be aware of this. Be courteous.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is not an ideal day to ask for permission or approval from authority figures because their response will likely be, “Talk to the hand.” Plus you would rather travel, explore adventure and have a chance to learn something new and exciting.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today you might encounter obstacles with travel or discussions about politics, religion and race. Issues related to publishing, the media, higher education, medicine and the law might also be stalled in the water. All this will improve in a few days.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Something related to shared property, taxes and debt might discourage you. You might be concerned about events that affect your finances and assets, or this could be because of a conversation with someone older who worries you. Remember: You are protected this year.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Mercury is opposite your sign at odds with stern Saturn. This means conversations with people who are older, more experienced, or in a position of authority are discouraging. Hey — this is just a temporary dark cloud on your horizon.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Your best bet is to focus on routine, mental work that requires steady slogging. Someone older might make things more difficult for you. Don’t worry. Just get the job done because you have the stamina and patience to do this.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Children might be an increased burden or responsibility. Someone older might put a crimp in your social plans, or perhaps, you find out that social plans are more costly or difficult for some reason. Good day to work out in a gym or practice sports.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

An older family member might rain on your parade. Or perhaps plans to renovate your home are discouraging because of financial costs. Don’t let this get you down because this is a temporary glitch, albeit a real one. The cavalry is on its way.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You can accomplish a lot because you have mental focus, patience and endurance. Knowing this, why not tackle routine work you have been avoiding? Roll up your sleeves and get stuff done. Don’t be crippled by worry or negative thinking.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Something connected with your job, earnings or cash flow might disappoint you. Quite likely, someone older, more experienced or in a position of authority is uncooperative. Or worse! (Gulp.) If at first you don’t succeed, hide all evidence that you ever tried.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Expect difficulties with others, especially people who are older or in a position of authority, or perhaps someone who is more experienced. It seems that whatever you suggest is shot down. Instead, use this energy to do mental work that requires attention to detail.
