Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - STYLE - HOL­I­DAY MATHIS

Happy birth­day. You’ll cul­ti­vate beau­ti­ful sur­round­ings, start­ing with the peo­ple you hang out with. You’ll grow your in­ter­nal re­sources through ed­u­ca­tion and per­sonal de­vel­op­ment and your ex­ter­nal re­sources mul­ti­ply, too.

Au­gust brings ex­cit­ing pos­si­bil­i­ties to your love life. In­creased com­fort and se­cu­rity will be the hall­marks of 2018.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your most use­ful tool of the day will be an easy so­cial de­meanor and a de­sire to help peo­ple. It bears men­tion­ing that help­ing peo­ple can be tricky. Some­times you help them best by not help­ing.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Logic dic­tates that the best choice is an ed­u­cated one made af­ter care­ful ex­am­i­na­tion of the op­tions. Life will prove to you oth­er­wise. Dumb luck can prove bril­liant. A whim or inkling can lead you some­where as­tound­ing.

GEM­INI (May 21-June 21): You know what it’s like to land in the sweet, gooey cen­ter of your joy. You also know what it’s like to drift out from that, which isn’t all bad. There’s clar­ity in the drift. To­day, you’ll ap­pre­ci­ate all sides of it.

CANCER (June 22-July 22): You were not meant for a zom­bie mind­set — you’re too alive for that. It’s bet­ter to do noth­ing than to fill your hours with hol­low dis­trac­tion. Mean­ing­less things cause you to for­get who you are.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): In­fat­u­a­tion is an ex­hil­a­rat­ing, ad­dict­ing drug that pro­duces an of­ten lovely and very tem­po­rary false re­al­ity. To min­i­mize the side ef­fects, de­pend on a grounded and un­af­fected friend as a guide.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Gen­uine com­pli­ments will have you buzzing with the de­li­cious charge that of­ten ac­com­pa­nies so­cial ac­cep­tance. Phony com­pli­ments will do the same. The only dif­fer­ence be­tween the two is the in­tent of your com­pli­men­tor.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Try­ing to do too much to­day will lead to stress­ful feel­ings of in­ad­e­quacy. Cut your list in half. You’ll get the same amount ac­com­plished but you’ll feel ter­rific about it in­stead.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): An am­bi­tious mood can be the en­emy of re­al­is­tic goals, but go with how you’re feel­ing any­way. You’re ma­ture enough to the find equilib­rium be­tween big dreams and real life.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): One way to max­i­mize your con­tacts is to serve them as well as you can and use them only to the ex­tent that you can very eas­ily re­pay. Peo­ple who lean too hard on their net­work may find it is not as ro­bust as they thought.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): It is your quest to con­stantly grow and im­prove. But grow­ing things do not al­ways ap­pear to be get­ting taller or larger. Rest and re­cov­ery is an es­sen­tial part of the growth process.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Good in­for­ma­tion will lead you to make ar­range­ments that ben­e­fit all. The best tips will ini­tially seem friv­o­lous or even use­less. That’s your ge­nius. You think play­fully.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You are mod­est and ac­com­mo­dat­ing, but it won’t fool the wise. Smart peo­ple sense your grav­i­tas and will think of you as an equal.
