HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY
Happy birthday. Your creativity knows no bounds this year and a never-ending well of innovation is available for tapping. And since your heart is full of compassion, you’ll often apply your talent solving the troubles of those around you. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Of all the things in life to be wasted, time is most precious. You’ll spend yours especially well and enjoy the lovely mood that comes with knowing you are making the most of every moment. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): There are hard-to influence people standing between you and what you want. Go in with a strategy, but be ready to change your plan and rely on your instinct. GEMINI (May 21-June 21): How well do your short-term aims align with the big picture? If they are off by a lot, motivation and morale will suffer. If they are off by a little, it will feel like there’s friction holding you back. Take the time for a reset, and tinker until you get the plan right. CANCER (June 22-July 22): When your work requires you to exercise your strengths and use your talents, it will not be drudgery.You will find joy in the task, and so will those around you because your energy is contagious. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): In attempting to make things feel right, you’ll make them look right, too. So while you weren’t going for “magazine lovely”, that will be the result of your efforts to harmonize emotional and aesthetic elements of your environment. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’ll assert a quiet, persistent and ego-less influence. It’s more important to you to see a project move forward or help a person in their development than it is to get your way or forward your name. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): When others do not recognize the specialness of your contributions, you’ll consider yourself lucky. This freedom to experiment without worrying about meeting anyone’s expectation is a gift! SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Ambition is a demanding boss. Balance your drive with self-care, including such things as rest, silliness and time with friends, doing nothing in particular. This is the sustainable approach that will prevent burnout. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t worry about starting things off on the right foot. Just use whichever foot naturally juts out to keep you from falling. All progress will be like walking — tilt, catch yourself, repeat. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): While you do have innate talent for reading people, no one is perpetually or universally adept at human interaction. It’s called “social skill” because it can be learned. Smoothness takes time and practice. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’ll receive undivided attention with a focus on the things you most want to be seen and most crave acknowledgement for. You’ll love connection with someone who cares about the same things as you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A wish went unmet and now you don’t want it nearly as much. Chasing led you to the place you are now, and all the appeal of this thing belongs in the past. You’re headed toward a future with much more to offer you.
