Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - STYLE - HOL­I­DAY MATHIS

Happy birth­day. You don’t have all the hard re­sources you need to bring your plan to life, but with moxie and de­ter­mi­na­tion you’ll make it hap­pen any­way. Your sup­port­ers are im­por­tant but not key. This year is about you reach­ing down to the depths of your soul to re­lease your true power. Jack­pot time: Oc­to­ber and May.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): The old adage says lov­ing does not re­quire thought, only emo­tion. And yet the thoughts align as if a magic com­bi­na­tion to open the safe that holds those emo­tions. Click, click, and it’s open. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Cheap thrills are still thrilling. Mean­ing­ful, last­ing re­wards are bet­ter — though not as acutely felt — as they lay into the foun­da­tion of who you are and be­come a given to your char­ac­ter.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21): The ex­tremes of thought aren’t help­ful now, es­pe­cially when they’re taken to a neg­a­tive place. All is not lost. All is never lost when there’s a fu­ture. Count the bless­ings and avoid those who are too fo­cused on prob­lems.

CAN­CER (June 22-July 22): Learn­ing is a process. You may see the les­son of­ten be­fore it clicks in. If you don’t un­der­stand right away, don’t give up. Keep com­ing at the puz­zle from dif­fer­ent di­rec­tions and in dif­fer­ent hours. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): If you don’t know what enough is, how will you know if you have enough? And when you do know what enough is, you pretty much al­ways have it. So much of this ex­is­tence falls into the cat­e­gory of “ex­tra.”

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your feel­ings are valid and im­por­tant, al­though some­times only to you. The oth­ers might pre­fer you to be al­ways con­tent, and you tend to put on that face for them. Note the dif­fer­ence be­tween car­ing and care­tak­ing.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Those who freely of­fer ad­vice without be­ing asked are ac­tu­ally im­pos­ing. As a sign of honor and re­spect, hold back on telling oth­ers what to do un­less it’s asked di­rectly of you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): With your in­tu­itive and em­pa­thetic gifts it is some­times dif­fi­cult to separate your feel­ings from the feel­ings of oth­ers. Do not try to leech any­one’s pain (or joy, for that mat­ter): Feel only your own. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): To be craved is flat­ter­ing; to be needed is val­i­dat­ing. It’s bet­ter, how­ever, just to be loved. Healthy re­la­tion­ships are built on equal­ity, in­ti­macy and bal­ance.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Putting your wishes aside is easy for you. It is much harder for you to con­sider your own in­ter­ests and hob­bies be­fore you agree to other peo­ple’s plans, but that’s what the day calls for.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Other peo­ple could com­pli­ment you from here to to­mor­row, but that doesn’t change how you see your­self. Your stan­dards are high and now you’ll work hard to meet them.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Many of your life rit­u­als are not your own but have been handed down by so­ci­ety, re­li­gion, fam­ily and friends. It’s the rit­u­als that you cre­ate or per­son­al­ize that will bring mean­ing and sig­nif­i­cance to your life.
