Horoscope for March 12

For Monday, March 12:

This year emphasizes communication. When you sense that an interaction might be off, detach and look at what the other person might really mean. If you are attached, learn not to take everything your partner says personally. If you are single, others find you very attractive; however, getting a relationship to go beyond dating could be challenging.
