The Washington Times Daily - - LIFE - HOL­I­DAY MATHIS

TO­DAY’S BIRTH­DAY (Dec. 15). The start of this year fea­tures your find­ing soft places to land. You de­serve some com­fort and lots of love, which you’ll soak in be­fore go­ing to the next spot. Your aim to­ward per­fect pro­fes­sion­al­ism will ex­tend to and en­hance other parts of your life. May and July fea­ture ro­mance and get­ting out of your usual rou­tine. Leo and Li­bra adore you. Your lucky num­bers are: 6, 12, 10, 45 and 20.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Among the sad­dest things imag­in­able in your book is un­ex­pressed po­ten­tial. You hate to see it in oth­ers, and it’s phys­i­cally painful when it’s stored in­side of you. So, what is keep­ing you from ex­press­ing it?

TAU­RUS (April 20-May 20). Just as food be­comes much more valu­able af­ter it’s be­ing de­nied, some val­ues only be­come strongly rel­e­vant when chal­lenged. You’ll be in­spired to fight for ideas you thought ev­ery­one shared. It turns out, ev­ery­one doesn’t.

GEM­INI (May 21-June 21).

One way some peo­ple deal with prob­lems is to be­come skill­ful at con­ceal­ing the dif­fi­culty in­volved. Stay aware of the per­son who wants you to think that all is well or much bet­ter. This per­son may re­ally need your help.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). There are those you need to ex­pe­ri­ence for a while so you can get used to the way they act. You may never un­der­stand them, but if you can pre­dict them, then you’ll be more com­fort­able and able to peace­ably co­ex­ist.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Feel­ing in con­trol of your time is a key el­e­ment of happiness. Ex­tremely prac­ti­cal steps to­ward bet­ter time man­age­ment will help you find your smile again.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Re­jec­tion im­plies pre­vi­ous ac­cep­tance. There­fore, strangers can­not truly re­ject one an­other. If it’s not a good fit, try to find this out early and move on. Put all rel­e­vant in­for­ma­tion on the ta­ble be­fore you get too in­volved.

LI­BRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Ev­ery­one needs a place to feel safe. Some are safe in small places, some in wide-open spa­ces. Peo­ple can pro­vide the emo­tional equiv­a­lent of this. You rec­og­nize when peo­ple are un­com­fort­able and try to help.

SCOR­PIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There are eti­quette rules for ev­ery­thing. You’ll lead with your deep re­spect for the oth­ers around you, and though you may not do things the tech­ni­cally proper way, you’ll gen­er­ate good feel­ings. That’s what mat­ters most.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Be­cause of your ef­forts to be a very clear and present com­mu­ni­ca­tor, you will min­i­mize mis­in­ter­pre­ta­tion and mis­un­der­stand­ing. All of your en­ergy is fo­cused on prob­lem-solv­ing.

CAPRI­CORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). At some point, you tire of try­ing to fig­ure out peo­ple’s mo­ti­va­tions. You’ll recharge in the nat­u­ral world, which has the power to calm you while ex­pect­ing noth­ing in re­turn.

AQUAR­IUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The value you as­sign your­self is just an opin­ion, and one that, like all opin­ions, is sub­ject to change. So why rate your­self at all then? Give the judge the day off, and see if you’re not a whole lot hap­pier.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Log­i­cal and eth­i­cal be­hav­ior is the bare min­i­mum for get­ting along in civ­i­lized so­ci­ety. But when it comes to mak­ing friends, so­cial ef­forts must reach much, much fur­ther into the realm of emo­tional in­tel­li­gence. Don’t worry; you’re a pro.
