Horoscopes 2–23–17


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18): Trying to change someone’s behavior will be an exercise in futility. Either accept he or she for who they are or end the relationship. If you discover a loved one has been harming others through his or her words and deeds, it would be best to distance yourself from the situation. Lucky number: 503.

PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20): Mechanical breakdowns could trigger a temper tantrum. Be prepared for a sudden change in direction. You’ll move past this setback much quicker if you’re not consumed by rage. Entertain the notion that this breakdown is a blessing in disguise. Lucky number: 278.

ARIES (March 21 to April 20): Trying to suppress your creative side will cause great unhappiness. Although it is admirable you have such a strong work ethic, that doesn’t mean you should spend all your energy on your career. Take this opportunity to carve out a time for artistic pursuits. Just make the time to do it. Lucky number: 576

TAURUS (April 21 to May 20): Spending time with loved ones restores your faith in humanity. You’ve always been interested in current events. Watching the news makes you wonder if you’re the only one with common sense. This feeling of despair will vanish when you reconnect with people you admire and respect. Lucky number: 604.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20): Jealousy will rear its ugly head in a close relationship. Your best friend may feel threatened by a new relationship. Do your best to make your feelings clear. If you’re not believable, there is serious work to be done. It’s not fair to be put on the defensive all the time. Lucky number: 748.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22): Household chores demand your attention. Spend more money than usual on repairs, replacements and redecoration. You’re a highly ambitious person who needs a tranquil haven. Coming home to a quiet, comfortable and restful place will revive your spirits. Lucky number: 312.

LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22): Stay away from sensitive topics like religion and politics. Nothing will be gained from such arguments, but quite a few relationships may be broken by them. If you have strong feelings about a particular issue, keep them to yourself. Write about them in your diary or express them through an art project. Lucky number: 972.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22): You have been given a certain measure of power. Don’t let it go to your head. Although you have the ability to make an adversary’s life difficult, it doesn’t mean you should do so. It’s better to win over the public by using your authority to help others. Lucky number: 265.

LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22): Watch what you post on social media. It could be easily misconstrued as being vicious or insensitive. You’ve always been considerate of others. A sincere statement may be read as sarcasm. If you want to give someone support or express concern for their welfare, have a genuine conversation. Lucky number: 496.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21): Restoring balance to a close relationship should be your top priority. If you’re not spending enough time with loved one, it’s time to rearrange your schedules. Failing to connect on a regular basis will drive you further and further apart. That’s not a risk you should be willing to take. Lucky number: 087.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21): A headstrong attitude will turn potential allies into sworn enemies. Focus on working as part of a team instead of barking out orders. You have a specific vision, but few people agree with it. Instead of writing off critics as stupid, carefully review his or her objections. Address their concerns point by point. Lucky number: 384.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19): Getting involved in secret agendas will be cause for regret. If someone asks to confide in you, gently turn them away. You’ve worked hard to win a reputation for being a straightforward, honest person. Acting as someone’s confessor will undermine your reliability. Lucky number: 931.
