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

Happy birth­day. You want to be ad­mired and sup­ported, not en­vied and con­trolled. You’ll get free of op­pres­sive in­flu­ences and shine in new ways this year.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): A deal is on the ta­ble. The scope of this feels huge — like it will bring you ev­ery­thing for­ever or noth­ing ever again.

Try to calm down about it be­cause it’s not as dras­tic as it sounds. Any­way, it’s too early to de­cide.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Maybe noth­ing is any­one’s re­spon­si­bil­ity. Bick­er­ing over who should do some­thing to help is petty, ugly and weak. Your phi­los­o­phy: Those who got lucky and are do­ing OK should help those who didn’t, pe­riod.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21): Your aim to in­crease the hap­pi­ness and/or re­duce the suf­fer­ing of those around you will be ful­filled at lit­tle cost to your­self. You’ll sim­ply and nat­u­rally move to­ward the thing that feels bet­ter.

CAN­CER (June 22-July 22): As for the bad de­ci­sion back there, it’s time to for­get it. Did you re­ally have that much of a choice? Any­way, that’s how it went and there’s no ben­e­fit in think­ing fur­ther into it. What’s your plan to­day? That’s what mat­ters.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): So­cially skilled, you are punc­tual, you or­der fast and you get to the point. Mak­ing peo­ple wait is rude un­less you can’t help it, or un­less you are art­fully help­ing peo­ple an­tic­i­pate what is to come to heighten their ul­ti­mate en­joy­ment.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You have some­thing worth shar­ing, so do. Be crisp. Use as many words as you need to get the point across and no more. Be trans­par­ent. Hold noth­ing back. Make the other per­son’s un­der­stand­ing your only de­sire.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): What’s com­pli­cated isn’t smarter; what’s costlier isn’t richer. To­day’s in­ac­ces­si­ble things aren’t worth­while any­way. So don’t worry. You’re not miss­ing much by skip­ping the doors that are closed to you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Your day will be in­spired by love and guided by knowl­edge. Want­ing any­thing be­yond this is just greedy — but hey, that’s a part of be­ing hu­man. Keep your joy­ful tone and much will be ac­com­plished.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Life can’t go ac­cord­ing to plan if you have no plan. Maybe that will be a good thing to­day. There were some short­sighted as­pects to your vi­sion and that will be reme­died once you get away from it a while.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your life will be more of an in­spi­ra­tion than your words ever could be. So be­fore you set out to in­spire any­one, think about what would feel in­spir­ing to you and do that.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): There’s a chance that mean­ing in­side the main event of the day is nonex­is­tent un­til as­signed. You’d be wise not to chase it or think too hard about it. Just name it and move for­ward.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Our brains al­ready tend to build the nar­ra­tives that we pre­fer to be­lieve. What’s go­ing to hap­pen when we can take it to the next level with mem­ory im­plants? The sci­ence-fic­tion fu­ture will be to­day’s cre­ative play­ground.
