The Washington Times Daily - - LIFE - HOL­I­DAY MATHIS

TO­DAY’S BIRTH­DAY (Dec. 27). This year rep­re­sents a clear “be­fore-and-af­ter” sce­nario. Your year will be the bass note of the chord of your life. In the fu­ture, you’ll re­ver­ber­ate against it, res­onate with the mem­o­ries, spec­u­late on the im­plied tra­jec­to­ries. Love is the fo­cus of the first quar­ter. Busi­ness is the fo­cus of the next. When in doubt, go with less. Leo and Taurus adore you. Your lucky num­bers are: 1, 3, 28, 44 and 6.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Like a pair of vin­tage shoes that per­fectly com­pletes an ensem­ble, your past makes the you-of-the-mo­ment more in­ter­est­ing, au­then­tic and com­fort­ably worn-in.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There are com­pro­mises to be made, and you won’t be a lesser per­son for mak­ing them, much to the con­trary: You’ll be more of a per­son. More em­pa­thetic, wise, ex­pe­ri­enced — and wealth­ier, too.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re a unique in­di­vid­ual. The more you re­al­ize your quirks, fig­ure out your pref­er­ences and honor your dis­likes, too, the hap­pier you’ll be. The thing to do is to stop seek­ing so­ci­etal re­wards and re­place them with per­sonal re­wards.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Take pride in your progress. Maybe you still don’t know what you want, but you know what you don’t want, and that’s even more im­por­tant at this point. You’ll use this in­for­ma­tion to make a new plan.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The ob­vi­ous route is too easy for you. Be­sides, peo­ple are start­ing to ex­pect you to do some­thing dif­fer­ent. Also, you’ll prob­a­bly find that the main road is blocked. Ev­ery­thing is aligned to get you to take the road less trav­eled.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’re so re­laxed to­day that you’re prac­ti­cally un­ex­citable, which makes you a rock for your loved ones. That doesn’t mean you lack en­thu­si­asm. It just means that you ad­min­is­ter it in mea­sured doses.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There’s a thrill in be­ing a be­gin­ner — start­ing at the very bot­tom and work­ing your way through each stage. Use the dis­tinct ad­van­tages of the start­ing line. It is a place where ev­ery­thing is still pos­si­ble.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You don’t have to be in an elite group to feel spe­cial. You pur­posely dis­tance your­self from in­volve­ment in cliques who en­joy judg­ing oth­ers from a “su­pe­rior” po­si­tion.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You don’t seek trou­ble. But if it cul­mi­nates like storm clouds above your head, you won’t run from it, ei­ther. Ad­ver­sity, when faced head-on, is pre­cisely what will make you strong.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). De­con­struct a sit­u­a­tion to un­der­stand it bet­ter. Cause prob­lems on pur­pose to test your skill at fix­ing them. Like a child learn­ing the world, you are nat­u­rally in­clined to ex­per­i­ment.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re in charge of you. Oth­ers might be bossy to­day, be­cause you’ve at­tracted peo­ple want to be a part of your next move. Get dis­tance from the crowd. Let your next move be all you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Here’s one thing cer­tain about your fu­ture: You can and will rise to the oc­ca­sion. Part of the rea­son is that you’re prac­tic­ing for it: You are prac­tic­ing for it, aren’t you? If not, this is a fine time to start.
