Los Angeles Times - - COMICS - By Hol­i­day Mathis Hol­i­day Mathis writes her col­umn for Cre­ators Syndicate Inc. The horoscope should be read for en­ter­tain­ment.

Aries (March 21-April 19): Should you sac­ri­fice your needs for those of an­other? Of course! But how of­ten? Sac­ri­fice should feel like a choice, not a char­ac­ter trait.

Tau­rus (April 20-May 20): As so­cial as you can be, your soli­tude is at times so sweet that no one can com­pete.

Gem­ini (May 21-June 21): The ones worth im­press­ing aren’t ex­cited by high-dol­lar items that any­one with money can ob­tain.

Can­cer (June 22-July 22): Your next great change will start with a pang of dis­sat­is­fac­tion then a judg­ment that spreads over your be­ing as a re­al­iza­tion.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Truly, when you make a de­ci­sion about how mal­leable your mood will be, you’ll have the power to stick to it. Your smile could change the day, or the day could change your smile.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The at­ti­tudes of peo­ple and the feel­ing of sit­u­a­tions will mat­ter even more than usual. In fact, in most things you en­counter to­day, the tone will trump the con­tent.

Li­bra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): The decor, the cof­fee mug, the shirt, the bracelet — they all seem to be bark­ing or­ders. You don’t need to be told how to do you.

Scor­pio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): You may con­tra­dict your­self, and that’s just part of be­ing a com­plex hu­man with broad in­ter­ests and a mind that can travel through time and span a uni­verse of ideas.

Sagit­tar­ius (Nov. 22Dec. 21): You’ll con­sider go­ing out of your way to make a fa­vor­able im­pres­sion or to please some­one. Be­fore you do, ex­am­ine your mo­tives. If it’s ap­proval you seek, you don’t need it. Capri­corn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The ob­ser­va­tions oth­ers make of you may clash with

your self-con­cept now. Fo­cus on the gra­cious­ness of oth­ers. Aquar­ius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Your re­stric­tions, real or imag­ined, are le­git­i­mate. The lat­ter is harder to break free from than the for­mer. That’s what makes to­day’s small vic­tory so im­por­tant.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Depri­va­tion is a se­vere and im­prac­ti­cal ap­proach. Many things are bet­ter reg­u­lated than re­stricted.

To­day’s birth­day (Aug. 9): It’s said that mad­ness carves its own re­al­ity. You’re not at all mad, but you’re a carver too. You’ll chip and shave away at your life un­til the mas­ter­piece emerges. A glo­ri­ous hap­pen­ing in the next three weeks will be the first of five. Your lucky num­bers are: 18, 7, 49, 31 and 6.
