The Washington Times Daily - - LIFE - HOL­I­DAY MATHIS

TO­DAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 24). This so­lar re­turn will be like a per­fect travel day — ev­ery as­pect of the jour­ney seems luck-laced and pleas­ant, in­clud­ing your ar­rival at what turns out to be a com­pletely un­in­tended des­ti­na­tion. Ro­man­tic highs: May and Oc­to­ber. Septem­ber aligns your emerg­ing tal­ents with pro­fes­sional op­por­tu­ni­ties. Sagittarius and Pisces adore you. Your lucky num­bers are: 41, 5, 29, 33 and 12.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Maybe your world­view isn’t ex­actly a pleas­ant one to­day, but it’s worth shar­ing any­way, be­cause it’s real. You couldn’t make these things up if you tried!

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re grate­ful for your mis­takes. They make you a more com­pas­sion­ate per­son, for starters. Also, be­cause you got some­thing wrong in the past, you’re able to get it very right this time around.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There are a few roles up for grabs in to­day’s sce­nario. De­cide who you want to be first. Then act. Once you cast your­self it will be hard to change roles (i.e., if you’re act­ing like some­one’s par­ent it will be hard to switch to friend mode).

CAN­CER (June 22-July 22). You treat your love (or po­ten­tial love) as an equal. This is the key to your suc­cess in re­la­tion­ships. “Equal” isn’t “same.” You re­spect dif­fer­ences and value them ap­pro­pri­ately.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your con­nec­tion to an older per­son will be a high­light of the day. You’ll be cre­atively in­spired by the tra­di­tions, man­ners and ways of do­ing things that have changed over the years.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Once you put your mind to it, you’ll be brim­ming with ideas for cre­at­ing fun times with your loved ones. This is a wor­thy men­tal ex­er­cise if ever there was one, es­pe­cially if you fol­low through on a few and bring a cam­era.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). A soul’s cry isn’t heard with the ears so much as the heart. You’ll ex­tend yours to­day as you lis­ten past what a loved one is say­ing and into the mean­ing and feel­ing of it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The rea­son you wrap a gift in­stead of just hand­ing it over naked is that thought­ful pre­sen­ta­tion and slow re­veals add ex­cite­ment and spe­cial­ness to our in­ter­ac­tions. Don’t skip the rit­ual. Add to it in­stead.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There will be many dif­fer­ent fac­tors act­ing on your de­ci­sion-mak­ing process to­day. You’ll be mo­ti­vated by a sense duty, driven by your own aes­thetic de­sires and in­trigued by the chance for po­lit­i­cal gain.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll be tempted to let lethargy win, sleep late or take a nap. The thing is, you’ll only awaken feel­ing less vi­tal. Get mov­ing in­stead. A sweat-in­duc­ing ac­tiv­ity will kick-start your en­ergy.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Ask any prac­ti­tioner of psy­chom­e­try; things don’t have to be liv­ing to have a pulse. Ob­jects have vibes. And if the en­ergy of your things (namely, hav­ing too many of them) is clut­ter­ing your mind, a purge will free you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Above all, you de­sire to of­fer the oth­ers some­thing of value. It’s why you’re care­ful not to fall into the at­ten­tion-seek­ing traps of our nar­cis­sis­tic age. Mod­esty and ser­vice are your call­ings of the day.
