The Washington Times Daily - - LIFE - HOL­I­DAY MATHIS

TO­DAY’S BIRTH­DAY (June 23). You’ll thrive in many kinds of re­la­tion­ships this year. You’ll have an easy give-and­take with some. For others it’s a give and give, and this will teach you and grow your heart, too. You’ll be re­paid in July. Travel at­tracts new busi­ness in Oc­to­ber. Your de­vo­tion will in­spire a sac­ri­fice and a vic­tory in 2018. Gemini and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky num­bers are: 12, 40, 4, 9 and 16.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Stop over­think­ing. Make a move. Whether a move is wrong or right, it tells you what the next move should be. This will stop you from go­ing in cir­cles in your head and will get you go­ing on a straight line in­stead.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re be­ing mar­keted to all of the time by those who would like you to choose their prod­ucts or ser­vices. Mar­ket to your­self. It works. Sur­round your­self with sym­bols and mes­sages about what you want your­self to choose.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Fear is en­ergy that can be di­rected in a pos­i­tive way, but that’s not how it’s used very of­ten. To di­rect your fear well, keep re­mind­ing your­self of what it is you want to achieve, and breathe to­ward that aim. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Long blocks of fo­cused, un­in­ter­rupted con­cen­tra­tion are nec­es­sary to ac­com­plish any­thing worth­while. There is some­thing (or more likely some­one) pre­vent­ing you from hav­ing time to fo­cus — a sit­u­a­tion that must be reme­died.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Risk­ing re­jec­tion is no fun (even for ex­tro­verts) but it must be faced in the name of progress. Go where the op­por­tu­ni­ties are and make friends. If you don’t know where they are, go where you think they are.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). As the moun­tain cra­dles the lake, your earth-sign na­ture will hold a wa­ter-sign in­di­vid­ual very dear. These are the Pisces, Scorpio and Cancer peo­ple, and they could re­ally use some­one with your re­li­a­bil­ity.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Some­times you won­der if you’re too brave for your own good. You’ve been known to jump into the spot­light un­pre­pared, but that’s bet­ter than miss­ing out. Af­ter all, op­por­tu­ni­ties usu­ally don’t wait around un­til you’re ready for them.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The peo­ple who have the best per­spec­tive about the job will be the ones who have done it. Go to the ground level, not the top (un­less the ones at the top started at the bot­tom and have worked their way all through).

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). As it is with any­thing, what you pay at­ten­tion to loves you back. When you give at­ten­tion to your deeper feel­ings and the sub­con­scious lay­ers of your­self, too, you start feel­ing more re­sound­ingly ful­filled.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The tools used to cre­ate will be a fo­cus, but don’t be fooled; the tools do not make the cre­ation. Cre­ativ­ity is in the head and heart. Fancy, ex­pen­sive tools can ac­tu­ally work against the art.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Cus­toms mat­ter — but not re­ally. Fol­low­ing the right move­ments in the cor­rect or­der will show re­spect when you don’t yet have the other per­son’s. Once you’ve earned a place in the heart, the pro­to­col will be­come less im­por­tant.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You sense you’re be­ing flat­tered. That doesn’t mean the com­pli­ments aren’t true; it just means your flat­terer is smart enough to grease the gears. One per­son’s dis­hon­esty is another per­son’s clever nav­i­ga­tion of com­plex times.
