Geelong Advertiser - - LIFESTYLE - with HOL­I­DAY MATHIS

ARIES Though gen­er­a­tions be­fore you did things a cer­tain way and the prin­ci­ples they used to get through life are still rel­e­vant to­day, mod­ern prob­lems re­quire you to build on that foun­da­tion. You’ll ac­quire new tools.

TAURUS The best way to pre­dict what hap­pens is the same as al­ways: Make it hap­pen. To­day’s work may be rushed, but it’s still re­mark­able and gen­er­ous if not as pol­ished as it might have been had you more time.

GEMINI The an­ti­dote to self­ish­ness is pub­lic­ity. Most would avoid the shame of be­ing called out for putting one’s own in­ter­ests be­fore the in­ter­ests of loved ones or their group – un­less self­ish­ness is the cul­tural norm.

CAN­CER Is any crea­ture built for em­pa­thy? It could be ar­gued that em­pa­thy plays against in­di­vid­ual sur­vival in­stincts. It’s not the first in­stinct of hu­mankind, yet it’s def­i­nitely re­quired for the sur­vival of our species.

LEO Don’t wait un­til life forces you to sprint. Just sprint to en­er­gise things. No one can sprint for the whole of the race, but a good marathon run­ner builds the oc­ca­sional sprint into the over-all plan.

VIRGO You’re go­ing to do the brave thing – not be­cause you have less to lose (if you had noth­ing to lose, it wouldn’t be brave) but, as you re­alise more than the oth­ers, be­cause your ac­tion is what’s sorely needed.

LIBRA The sit­u­a­tion will trig­ger your com­pet­i­tive in­stincts. Sud­denly, it will be im­por­tant to dress, talk and move like a win­ner. Much of this will come nat­u­rally to you, although some de­gree of study may also be in­volved.

SCORPIO You won’t be sat­is­fied with just any re­sult. You want your work to be art­ful and use­ful, or you’d rather not turn it in at all. The thing is, you’re not the best judge of this to­day. Just turn it in.

SAGITTARIUS The omens warn against sell­ing your fu­ture for to­day’s quick fix, and yet fix­ing some­thing quickly doesn’t al­ways spell trou­ble in the fu­ture. So ex­am­ine your op­tions from a long-term per­spec­tive.

CAPRI­CORN In gen­eral, your life is eas­ier when you make fewer prom­ises. How­ever, ev­ery­thing you do sets up an ex­pec­ta­tion. The prom­ises are im­plicit. And every one you keep builds trust that you’ll keep them, too.

AQUAR­IUS How you imag­ine your­self will de­fine your po­si­tion. What one per­son con­sid­ers a po­si­tion of weak­ness an­other may con­sider a po­si­tion of strength.

PISCES As you climb the moun­tain to get a bet­ter view you make your­self more con­spic­u­ous to those be­low. You should be aware that the beauty and knowl­edge you seek will make you more in­flu­en­tial.
