Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - STYLE - HOL­I­DAY MATHIS

Happy birth­day. Your friendly na­ture pays off in the way of for­tu­nate op­por­tu­ni­ties that oc­cur be­cause you dared to break the ice with a stranger. There’s also a trea­sure in the form of some­one who ac­knowl­edges you often, un­der­stands you usu­ally and is a faith­ful com­pan­ion.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): In cer­tain sit­u­a­tions it can be quite risky to say what you think and share your be­liefs. But you have ideals you hold dear — things you’ll stand for and fall for. To­day you’re will­ing to take that risk.

TAU­RUS (April 20-May 20): You don’t have to in­vent your whole game. Bor­row some of it, too. Other peo­ple’s knowl­edge (es­pe­cially on the top­ics of courtship, com­mu­ni­ca­tion and busi­ness) will help you di­rect your re­la­tion­ships suc­cess­fully.

GEM­INI (May 21-June 21): Start where you are. This is not the same (and a mil­lion times more ef­fec­tive) as

think­ing from where you are. Think­ing is good, but you need to make the start of­fi­cial with an ac­tion.

CAN­CER (June 22-July 22): The last thing you want to be is that per­son who just doesn’t feel com­plete with­out hav­ing all of the at­ten­tion on him or her. If you have some­thing to say, you’ll say it.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You are the land­lord of your own head. Don’t let oth­ers rent space there if they aren’t go­ing to be good tenants. In other words, your in­flu­ences need to pay up.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): There will be no un­der­stand­ing (nor will there be progress) with­out the ben­e­fit of mul­ti­ple per­spec­tives. The break­through will be in­duced by zoom­ing way, way in then zoom­ing way, way out. LI­BRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Is the si­lence half empty or half full? Prob­a­bly it’s much more than half full. In fact, the si­lence will over­flow with mean­ing and an­swers if you’re will­ing to let it stretch out, un­bro­ken, for a long while.

SCOR­PIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): St. Am­brose said, “No one heals him­self by wound­ing an­other.” Of course, this was be­fore or­gan do­na­tion was a viable med­i­cal tech­nol­ogy. To­day a small sacri­fice will be made for the heal­ing of all in­volved.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Lan­guage makes things hap­pen quickly. With­out the right words, to­day’s task will be dif­fi­cult to pull off. But if you know the right thing to say at the right time, it will be a snap.

CAPRI­CORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Would you rather be suc­cess­ful or pop­u­lar? Un­for­tu­nately, you’ll have to choose just one to­day, be­cause the road to suc­cess will take so much fo­cus there will be lit­tle time left for the so­cial swirl.

AQUAR­IUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’re far too busy to grieve for what you don’t have. You love and en­joy what you have. The more you use and ap­pre­ci­ate it, the bet­ter things get for you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): On a spir­i­tual level, mis­takes rep­re­sent tu­ition paid. Just as it is in school, a paid tu­ition is only the min­i­mum needed for en­try. It’s up to the stu­dent to learn the les­son.
