The Washington Times Daily - - LIFE - HOL­I­DAY MATHIS

TO­DAY’S BIRTH­DAY (Aug. 4). You don’t have all the hard re­sources you need to bring your plan to life, but with moxie and de­ter­mi­na­tion you’ll make it hap­pen any­way. Your sup­port­ers are im­por­tant but not key. This year is about you reach­ing down to the depths of your soul to re­lease your true power. Jack­pot time: Oc­to­ber and May. Gem­ini and Libra adore you. Your lucky num­bers are: 9, 39, 22, 47 and 45.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The old adage says lov­ing does not re­quire thought, only emo­tion. And yet the thoughts align like a magic com­bi­na­tion to open the safe that holds those emo­tions. Click, click, click, and it’s open.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Cheap thrills are still thrilling. Mean­ing­ful, last­ing re­wards are bet­ter, though not as acutely felt, as they lay into the foun­da­tion of who you are and be­come a given to your char­ac­ter.

GEM­INI (May 21-June 21). The ex­tremes of thought aren’t so help­ful now, es­pe­cially when they’re taken to a neg­a­tive place. All is not lost. All is never lost when there’s a fu­ture. Count the bless­ings and avoid those who are too fo­cused on prob­lems. CAN­CER (June 22-July 22). Learn­ing is a process. You may see the les­son many times be­fore it clicks in. If you don’t un­der­stand right away, don’t give up. Keep coming at the puz­zle from dif­fer­ent di­rec­tions and in dif­fer­ent hours.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you don’t know what enough is, how will you know if you have enough? And when you do know what enough is, you pretty much al­ways have it. So much of this ex­is­tence falls into the cat­e­gory of “ex­tra.”

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your feel­ings are valid and im­por­tant, though some­times only to you. The others might pre­fer you to be al­ways con­tent, and you tend to put on that face for them. Note the dif­fer­ence be­tween car­ing and care­tak­ing.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Those who freely of­fer ad­vice with­out be­ing asked are ac­tu­ally im­pos­ing. As a sign of honor and re­spect, hold back on telling others what to do un­less it’s asked di­rectly of you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). With your in­tu­itive and em­pa­thetic gifts it is some­times dif­fi­cult to sep­a­rate your feel­ings from the feel­ings of others. Do not try to leech any­one’s pain (or joy, for that mat­ter). Feel only your own.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). To be craved is flat­ter­ing; to be needed is val­i­dat­ing. It’s bet­ter, how­ever, just to be loved. Healthy re­la­tion­ships are built on equal­ity, in­ti­macy and bal­ance.

CAPRI­CORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Putting your wishes aside is easy for you. It is much harder for you to con­sider your own in­ter­ests and hob­bies be­fore you agree to other peo­ple’s plans, but that’s what the day calls for.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Other peo­ple could com­pli­ment you from here to to­mor­row, but that doesn’t change how you see your­self. Your stan­dards are high and now you’ll work hard to meet them.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Many of your life rit­u­als are not your own but have been handed down by so­ci­ety, re­li­gion, fam­ily and friends. It’s the rit­u­als that you cre­ate or per­son­al­ize that will bring mean­ing and sig­nif­i­cance to your life.
