Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - STYLE - BY HOL­I­DAY HOL­I­DAY MATHIS

Happy birth­day. The world will have ideas, but ul­ti­mately you will de­cide who you want to be and you’ll do it big­ger than ever. If it’s fame you seek, you’ll have it by next month.

Try things out in Septem­ber; en­ter­tain thoughts with­out ac­cept­ing them. Ex­cit­ing devel­op­ments in love will hap­pen in 2018 as you move to make your heart hap­pier.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t be swayed by im­ma­ture and petty de­mands, or you’ll train the world to pester you un­til you even­tu­ally cave to its re­quests. Pa­tiently stand firm, not­ing that “this too shall pass.”

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): When you stop and won­der, “How did I get here?” a look in the di­rec­tion of your her­itage may an­swer a few ques­tions. At the in­ter­sec­tion of frus­tra­tion and com­pas­sion, you just might find self-ac­cep­tance.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21): In the mir­rored world of the mind, ev­ery­thing de­pends on how bright the room is. Keep the lights on and stay aware of the mir­ror’s ten­dency to­ward il­lu­sion. The way you ex­pe­ri­ence things may not be how they re­ally are.

CAN­CER (June 22-July 22): You’ve lost some­thing, and ev­ery­one you meet has also lost some­thing along the way. One good thing about it is that hearts tend to com­mu­ni­cate qui­etly through a shared sense of long­ing. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): For mo­ments you will feel like a bun­dle of nerves in­stead of a brain send­ing out mes­sages — more jel­ly­fish than mam­mal. Go with

it. Things don’t need to be in­tel­lec­tu­al­ized in or­der to work.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Af­ter the strug­gle, the hard work, the early morn­ings, the sac­ri­fices, the in­vest­ment — that’s when the re­sults will start to show. If the re­sults come be­fore those things, they aren’t to be trusted.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Be­lieve it or not, it’s im­por­tant to feel bored from time to time and to ride that bore­dom into the deeper lev­els of your soul. This is where the cre­ativ­ity and depth are.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): You’ll live out the day like a game of truth or dare. No one is forc­ing you, but you feel pulled to­ward the ad­ven­tur­ous choices, the ones that prove your fear­less­ness and test your hon­esty.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Strug­gles can make a per­son hum­ble. Sur­mount­ing them can make a per­son mighty. It’s a rare oc­cur­rence, but you’ll get a taste of both sides of it in one day.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If you ig­nore the bad be­hav­ior of oth­ers, you won’t have to ad­dress it, for­give it or avenge it. The way it’s go­ing for you to­day, chances are good that what you ig­nore will go away for­ever.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The past is done but not for­got­ten. The fu­ture will come, or it won’t, but it’s not some­thing to worry about now. You’re get­ting bet­ter and bet­ter at fill­ing out the present mo­ment.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): It doesn’t feel like it in the mo­ment, but even­tu­ally the kind of work you’re do­ing to­day will make you stronger and more com­plete. Dig in and get ready to mud­dle through a lot of repet­i­tive te­dium.
