The Washington Times Daily - - LIFE - HOL­I­DAY MATHIS

TO­DAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 2). This so­lar re­turn you will en­deavor to cre­ate special ex­pe­ri­ences for peo­ple and be might­ily ef­fec­tive. The next 10 weeks show you get­ting health­ier. Septem­ber’s hard work will have de­layed but am­ple pay. In 2018 you’ll hit it off with new friends like a can­dle and a match, softly, warmly il­lu­mi­nat­ing each other’s lives. Capricorn and Gemini adore you. Your lucky num­bers are: 12, 18, 33, 31 and 27.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You don’t nec­es­sar­ily want to be the leader. You don’t de­sire more power and in­flu­ence than you al­ready have. And yet, you will still model the at­ti­tudes and be­hav­iors you want to see in oth­ers. This is the heart of lead­er­ship.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Agree to deal with peo­ple as they are. More im­por­tantly, deal with your­self as you are. Per­son­al­ity traits are eas­ier to en­hance, shape or high­light than they are to shed.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Greed is bor­ing. Those who are in­ter­ested only in the sale miss the fun of the game. So while a driven per­son is more at­trac­tive to you than an idle one, a per­son who is only driven by his own self-in­ter­est is the least at­trac­tive of all.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Mak­ing a good im­pres­sion and help­ing oth­ers feel good about them­selves (and you) is se­ri­ous business. There is noth­ing ca­sual, hasty or ac­ci­den­tal in your ap­proach to this to­day. It mat­ters to you — a lot.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When you like some­thing, you im­merse your­self in it. Be­cause you take on your sub­jects of in­ter­est with gusto, you’ll be able to present a case for them that’s lively, chal­leng­ing and con­vinc­ing.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). One of the many pos­i­tive things about so­cial me­dia is that it nudges us to cel­e­brate the minu­tiae of daily life. The voice in­side that asks, “Is this worth shar­ing?” has us more aware of the mer­its in a cof­fee cup or a sand­wich.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Op­por­tu­ni­ties are gifts. To seize the op­por­tu­nity and run with it is a liv­ing, breath­ing thank-you note. Such in­ter­play will un­fold beau­ti­fully to­day and you’ll show im­pres­sive grace in the ex­change.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Of course you pre­fer pleas­ant emo­tions. Who doesn’t? You also have the courage and pa­tience to ac­cept what­ever feel­ings come up. Laugh­ter and joy are as es­sen­tial to be­ing hu­man as are frus­tra­tion and tears.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Grand ges­tures are punc­tu­a­tion marks in the sen­tence of a love story. They are not the story it­self. The small, spe­cific ges­tures that only the two of you un­der­stand bring greater proof of love than the big events.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It is dif­fi­cult to track your progress when your pur­suits are var­ied and many. Fo­cus in on one goal. What is the mea­sure­ment that will prove you’ve made it? Keep­ing record of this will help you stick to the plan and carry on.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You can’t help but be in­flu­enced by the peo­ple you spend the most time with. You’re ei­ther al­ready like them or you’ll be­come like them. Even a very slight change in your so­cial lineup will make a big dif­fer­ence.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Life is a bal­ance. Part of that bal­ance is be­ing un­bal­anced from time to time. To­day you’ll see quick progress pre­cisely be­cause you fo­cus all of your en­ergy in one di­rec­tion.
