HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY
Happy birthday. You’re so loved, but that’s not even the best part. The best part is you appreciate and fully receive the gift and pure energy of this.
You’ll acquire new tools and resources in August. You’ll be put in charge of more people, and you’ll contribute positively to the lives of others.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Holding on makes a person strong, as does letting go. It’s just a different muscle group. There is no decision to be made here, just grace to be claimed in whichever situation applies best.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): When the facts don’t match up with what you thought they’d be, this presents a challenge. Many people deal with this simply by shoring up the facts until they match their preconceptions. Watch out for that, and don’t take part in it.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21): You have qualities that come from your cellular lineage and other qualities you picked up along the way. Then there’s a part of you that can’t be claimed at the cellular or psychological level. You’ll act from that spiritual truth today.
CANCER (June 22-July 22): Actions have consequences and yet can seem to be strangely inconsequential, too. Mostly it’s a time-lapse issue. What feels like excruciating minutiae in real time will be revealed to be meaningful work in retrospect.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): If you’re going to have a dispute, be sure to define the terms of it — the more narrow the better. There’s little influence to be gained by taking people on with broadly different views, although you’ll sharpen your arguments in the process.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Time is supposed to prevent everything from happening at once, and yet it may fall down on the job today, at least in your case. Your popularity surges, which is a hard thing to keep up with. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Much will be asked of you: things you don’t want to do; things you do want to do; things that fit both categories and seem inextricably linked. Just remember, there are usually more options than the ones first presented.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): In the same way a shoe sets the tone for an outfit, there are foundational beliefs and attitudes that set the mood of this day. Just because a terrible old shoe fits doesn’t mean you should still wear it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): While you make something (a plan, a picture, a bed) you’re having an experience. Whatever the outcome may be, the experience will stand on its own merit if the endeavor is a worthy one. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): What you once thought of as work now seems more like a form of prayer. That’s not to say it’s automatically easy. Praying can have its difficulties, especially if you’re new at it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): At times the work laid before you seems absurd in a way that only you are seeing. This is made plain when you laugh and they don’t or when you tilt your head at what they unquestionably accept. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll be making room for the next generation to contribute, not because your turn is over, but because you realize the importance of staying fresh at every stage and age.
