Horoscope - March 01, 2017Aries (March 21-April 19)
Your daily routine will be different today - no question. Whatever you're doing is not what you usually do. This might be an unusual activity or it could be an unusual interruption - in fact, it could be anything. Be careful because this is a mildly accident-prone day as well. Keep your eyes open.Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You feel restless today. You have that feeling that you're waiting for the other shoe to drop. (And we both know that invariably it will be ugly and in the wrong size.) Part of the problem is that you are confused or perhaps disappointed with someone who is a friend or a member of a group.Gemini (May 21-June 20)
A friend will surprise you today. Alternatively, you might meet someone who is a real character. Meanwhile, relations with parents, bosses and VIPs are confusing. You might feel let down because someone does not meet your expectations. Bummer. Tread carefully.Cancer (June 21-July 22)
