Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - STYLE - HOL­I­DAY MATHIS

Happy birth­day. The thing you find out about in a back­ward sort of way is some­thing to­tally fan­tas­tic to go for­ward with. Your hori­zons will broaden as you ded­i­cate your­self to a repet­i­tive process in Septem­ber.

Af­ter much work, Novem­ber brings fi­nan­cial spike you’re wait­ing for.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You are fight­ing a nag­ging feel­ing that you should be do­ing some­thing more im­por­tant with your life. That feel­ing is not a lie. If you ac­cept it in­stead of fight it, you’ll get onto some­thing more worth­while.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Much will be said and not meant. More will be meant and not said. If you’re not feel­ing your way through the re­la­tion­ship, you’ll get lost pretty quickly. Close your eyes. Cover your ears. Lis­ten with your heart.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21): Whether you’re re­ally in con­trol of your sit­u­a­tion could be de­bated from here to eter­nity, but that would rob you of the chance to ex­pe­ri­ence (maybe even en­joy) what’s go­ing on re­gard­less of your level of con­trol over it.

CAN­CER (June 22-July 22): Dis­trac­tion is the death of mean­ing. Don’t fill the hours with amuse­ment, be­cause it will only rob you of the chance to find your real pur­pose in the sit­u­a­tion. Dig deeper.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Most days you fol­low the rules, but some­times you feel big­ger than so­ci­ety — like you can do your thing without get­ting boxed in by other peo­ple’s ex­pec­ta­tions. For the rest of this week you may swing from one ex­treme to an­other.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The pas­sive ap­proach would work if you were on a raft float­ing down a river with its own agenda. But you’re not. You’re stand­ing on the path that splits into many pos­si­ble di­rec­tions, and you have to de­cide which way to walk.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Peo­ple tend to ad­mire the dif­fer­ent tal­ents of those who ex­cel in fields for­eign to them and tend to have grudges against those who ex­cel in their own fields, re­gard­ing them as com­peti­tors. Don’t waste time on jeal­ousy. Learn the tricks.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Why is your stom­ach so wise? It is un­en­cum­bered by thought. It just knows. Your stom­ach pro­cesses life in terms of “use” and “waste.” Turn your dif­fi­cult ques­tions to your stom­ach, and ac­cept its sim­ple yes-or-no an­swer.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The be­liever is usu­ally hap­pier than the doubter, prov­ing that wis­dom and hap­pi­ness of­ten have very lit­tle to do with each other. But there’s a peace that comes with wis­dom, and that should count for some­thing to­day.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Be­ware of the life equiv­a­lent of soda pop and candy. You need real sus­te­nance. Seek nu­tri­tive ex­pe­ri­ences. Avoid things that are filled to the brim and yet still un­ful­fill­ing.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Who might you be now if you’d taken that turn you missed back there? Well, the op­tion is com­ing up again. Take it, and you’ll know a dif­fer­ent ver­sion of your­self soon enough.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): As for this real life story you’re liv­ing, there’s a lot of ex­po­si­tion to get through to­day. One bor­ing chap­ter doesn’t dis­count the value of the whole ad­ven­ture.
