HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY
Happy birthday. This solar return shows you alert, active, responsible and capable — a state of mind that attracts work and friends. September refreshes your home environment. Family presents you with a challenge in November, and you’ll enjoy the mission. There’s a prime investment opportunity in January.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): You can control many things about your present that will lead to gains later. However, the future is still out of your (and everyone’s) control. Accepting this with grace will free up a lot of psychic energy.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): When you get away from the crowd to spend concentrated time alone, real work will happen — the kind that makes you richer in material and immaterial ways.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21): Pay attention to the expectations society places on the people in a relationship. Does it vary from role to role? Is it equal? Is it fair? This will matter increasingly over time. There may be something to nip in the bud.
CANCER (June 22-July 22): Even in inanimate things and concepts, mutual freedom is important. When you don’t feel the need to own what you love, what you love will seem to pull more weight in the arrangement, working harder to earn your attention.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The situation that once made you feel terribly flawed was ultimately your best teacher and could be credited for your current soaring approval rating. You worked hard to improve, and you’re more attractive because of it.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your soul is strengthened through work and through taking on more responsibility. You’ll go out and find the circumstances that are conducive to what you’d like to accomplish next.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): You can stop people from treating you differently than you want to be treated, and it’s pretty simple, too. Be aware of what you’re allowing. You have more options than you exercise.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): You’ve got plenty of hustle, and people around you see it. They respect your mind and want the privilege of your loyalty. You’ll be an example for the less experienced.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Avoid the prognosticators, be they skeptical or optimistic. You won’t know if it was a good idea or a bad idea until it’s an executed idea. The only way forward is to go.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You can avoid the things that trigger your frustration and you can change your environment, but ultimately the best way to stop yourself from getting angry is not to give in to it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You never know which relationships are going to benefit you the most. Not all friendships will help you advance your interests, but they will all contribute to your well-being. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Learned, intelligent, creative people can believe the most ridiculous things. It is therefore better to let yourself be influenced by handpicked ideas than by people.
