NYT Strands Hints and Answers for March 25, 2024

Starting, I randomly spotted BULL at the top right, and it turned out to be a theme word. It did not help me understand the theme though. A few non-theme words later, I spotted GOAT at the bottom right as the next theme word. This revealed to me what today’s theme might be, but I was wrong.

After going through a bunch of non-theme words, I reluctantly took a hint and got the word TWINS at the bottom right. Next to it, I spotted ARCHER and knew the Spangram was vertical today, which I then started looking for and instantly found. With ASTROLOGY in the bag, it was easy to find the remaining words in order – SCORPION, VIRGIN, and SCALES.

The “sign” in today’s theme hint referred to astrological signs. I just couldn’t guess that from BULL and GOAT.

So, that was my journey with Strands today. What about you? Did you end today’s Strands without using a single hint, unlike me? Let me know in the comments down below!
