Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - STYLE - HOL­I­DAY MATHIS

Happy birth­day. To sum the world up in a word: magic. The spell is in this bit of knowl­edge: Most prob­lems are caused in­side the re­la­tion­ship with the self — a re­la­tion­ship that will be healed, nur­tured and well-tended this so­lar re­turn. With great dar­ing and car­ing, you’ll help your­self be­come the hero of your own story.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You’re build­ing a fortress of love around you now. Love can­not im­mu­nize you against all fu­ture sad­ness and emo­tional pain, but it will def­i­nitely make it much eas­ier to bear.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ve plenty around you who, like dogs, love you un­con­di­tion­ally and are ex­cited to see you. It’s the cat-like peo­ple who are fea­tured to­day, though. They might ig­nore you un­til they’re sud­denly in the mood for at­ten­tion.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21): If you were a flower you wouldn’t be a rose with pro­tec­tive thorns to keep peo­ple from hastily pluck­ing you up. You’d be a wild­flower that grows where it wants. Be­ing picked or not picked isn’t the point for a wild­flower.

CAN­CER (June 22-July 22): It’s hard to do things just for your own self-im­prove­ment. There­fore, you don’t call it “fun.” It cer­tainly isn’t self­ish, as no one self­ishly causes his or her own dis­com­fort. Do things just for you any­way, if only as an ex­er­cise to prove that you can.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): There’s no shame in leav­ing the party at 9:30 p.m. Once you’ve done what you set out to do, found what you were look­ing for and got­ten what you came for, there’s no rea­son to stay.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Some en­deav­ors are like the car­ni­val that comes to town to de­light you then takes its mu­sic and roller coast­ers to the next lo­ca­tion. So what? Play the games; lose some money; ride the rides. It’s more fun than stay­ing home.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): To give your heart to an­other when you feel the im­pulse to do so is usu­ally the right choice. That doesn’t mean it will work out. No one is guar­an­teed joy. But re­gard­less of what hap­pens next, you’ll be bet­ter for it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): You so freely give your love to ev­ery­one who needs it. What about you? You need it, too, pos­si­bly more ur­gently than any­one else around you to­day. Turn it in­ward.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Do you won­der why the cold peo­ple seem to grav­i­tate to you? It’s be­cause you’re fire and they sense they’ll be able to warm up around you. They’re right about that to­day.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Any at­tempt to con­trol es­sen­tially un­con­trol­lable forces will fall some­where be­tween laugh­able and fu­tile. Dis­turb­ing el­e­ments are part of the land­scape of life. The trick is to go around them, pay­ing as lit­tle at­ten­tion as pos­si­ble.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The bleak even­tu­ally gives way to sparkling in­ter­ests — or does it cre­ate them? It will be your rest­less­ness along with your en­thu­si­asm that give mean­ing and color to your work and re­la­tion­ships.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): The dam­age we do over the course of a re­la­tion­ship or a job can’t al­ways be put right again, but when it’s beyond re­pair we can still rebuild from scratch. The im­por­tant thing is to have a hope­ful at­ti­tude.
