Albuquerque Journal - - PUZZLES - BY HOLIDAY

TO­DAY’S BIRTH­DAY (Aug. 31): A strong sense of pur­pose will be with you all year. Any­one can see that it would be ex­tremely dif­fi­cult to sway you from your path, most will just clear the way for your ar­rival. Artis­tic peo­ple spark your cre­ativ­ity. A stress is lifted in Novem­ber. Big money comes from cu­mu­la­tive ef­forts pay­ing off in 2018. Scor­pio and Pisces adore you. Your lucky num­bers are: 12, 1, 18, 50 and 14.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t let things grate on your nerves. Make ad­just­ments. It won’t be easy, but the al­ter­na­tive is to think the same ir­ri­tat­ing thoughts again and again. Make a move in­stead.

TAU­RUS (April 20-May 20): If you didn’t feel and re­spect the risk in­volved, it wouldn’t be ex­cit­ing. You’ll do cre­ative and ex­per­i­men­tal things be­cause you de­cide not to be ruled by your trep­i­da­tions.

GEM­INI (May 21-June 21): Am­bi­tions don’t end. As soon as you wrap your hands around one glit­ter­ing fruit another one higher on the tree will catch your eye. Am­bi­tion is not about be­ing sat­is­fied but about em­body­ing pur­suit.

CAN­CER (June 22-July 22): Some keep try­ing to bring your at­ten­tion back to a rather dis­mal tra­jec­tory, and they call that “re­al­ity.” Re­al­ity has many tra­jec­to­ries. Don’t au­to­mat­i­cally ac­cept the dark ones just be­cause they are of­fered.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): When you pray for some­one, do you pray to their god or yours? These and other spir­i­tual ques­tions are the or­der of the day, but don’t worry about com­ing up with an­swers. All the ben­e­fit is in the pon­der­ing.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’ll be mag­ne­tized by dy­namic,your work, re­ally,a won­der­fulas it sat­is­fiesonce. It’s many­good to peo­ple know at there’s some­thing in your en­deav­ors with the power to keep you com­ing back.

LI­BRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Any one part of your life doesn’t have to be the best part of your life. So when one area isn’t go­ing right, don’t worry your­self too much about it. Things will even out for you; they al­ways do.

SCOR­PIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): You are in con­trol; you’re also trapped. You have the power, but you’re not sure how to seize and use it. Ac­cept the com­plex­ity. Be gen­tle with your­self. Do what you can to in­crease the flow of good.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): What you do for your hap­pi­ness you also do for your health. Another thing you may not re­al­ize is that your ef­forts to take ex­cel­lent care of your­self are be­ing watched. By car­ing for your­self, you in­spire oth­ers to take care.

CAPRI­CORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The old­school way has to do with pri­or­i­ties and goals. Of course, if you don’t know where you’re headed, you’re not go­ing to get there. The new way has more to do with set­ting up sys­tems and rhythms that work for you.

AQUAR­IUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): There are some things about your­self that are not likely to change. When you’ve so many tal­ents and abil­i­ties, why would you waste time even wor­ry­ing about those things? Build up your strengths.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’re seek­ing in­spi­ra­tion — as much of it as you can get. You want to learn how peo­ple face ad­ver­sity and set them­selves up for suc­cess. Books lie. Peo­ple lie. Still, you’ll find enough truth to use and use well.
