Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - STYLE - HOL­I­DAY MATHIS

Happy birth­day. Your loved ones come to know more of you, and in­deed, you grow in new ways, so there is more to know. To be un­der­stood and cel­e­brated for your unique­ness is a com­fort and a thrill. Septem­ber and Fe­bru­ary are your luck­i­est fi­nan­cial months.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Some­times you’re charged with be­ing a cog in the wheel, and other times your job is to hold the han­dle­bars, steer and bal­ance. Both jobs can have their ad­van­tages and dis­ad­van­tages, so which­ever it is, em­brace it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Our minds are so sub­jec­tive that the idea of re­al­ity can be a squir­rely one. If you ig­nore it and it doesn’t go away, it’s prob­a­bly re­al­ity. That’s good news. Re­al­ity can be much more easily dealt with than non­re­al­ity.

GEM­INI (May 21-June 21): Just as the Ro­man hero Ulysses found a way to re­sist the song of the sirens, you will find a way to re­sist the temp­ta­tions on the side­lines to­day. Ulysses had help from his crew, and so will you if you call on yours.

CAN­CER (June 22-July 22): Any­one can con­nect all of the wrong things and come to some pretty dis­mal con­clu­sions. You’ll con­nect the shin­ing dots of right­ness, and the con­clu­sion that nat­u­rally fol­lows will be bright and wel­com­ing.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): To be self­less and re­main calm is the aim of peo­ple ev­ery­where; but then one day (to­day) you’re sim­ply not in the mood. Rage on.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Part of you will en­gage; the other part watches. Which is real? You’re the sky, not the weather. The clouds may dec­o­rate or men­ace, but don’t be both­ered; clouds pass. You’re the con­stant.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Any path you com­mit to will get you there. So the bet­ter ques­tion isn’t, “Which one will get me there?” It’s, “Which path might I com­mit to with plea­sure?”

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Soli­tude has a tran­scen­dent power, and so does unity. Too much of ei­ther state is di­min­ish­ing, though. Your bal­ance of so­cial time and alone time may need some tweak­ing.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You can’t think your way to peace, be­cause think­ing doesn’t bring peace. Peace ex­ists be­tween the thoughts, also around them. Mu­sic will be an easy and in­ter­est­ing way to or­ga­nize men­tal clut­ter.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If you feel you have to in­flate your con­fi­dence or brag or oth­er­wise stuff your “re­sume,” the sit­u­a­tion is al­ready doomed. Go where the love is in­stead. Who you are isn’t what you have, own or do. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Peo­ple will say that “some­thing has to be done,” but does it? If noth­ing is done, what then? If you put it to the test and “some­thing” still “has to be done,” then you’re the one to do it. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): There’s the un­know­able, and then there’s the not-worth-know­ing, and both may seem to be un­wor­thy of the chase. How­ever, pur­su­ing the first cat­e­gory will bring many rev­e­la­tions.
