The Washington Times Daily - - LIFE - HOL­I­DAY MATHIS

TO­DAY’S BIRTH­DAY (Aug. 10). Re­la­tion­ships smooth out. In the months to come you’ll ed­u­cate your­self and get a han­dle on chang­ing what both­ers you. In 2018 it’s about build­ing some­thing new in its place. A men­tor will help you make a plan and ex­e­cute it. A dream will spring to life in March. Ro­man­tic get­aways hap­pen in May. New fam­ily comes in June. Gemini and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky num­bers are: 9, 17, 8, 33 and 41.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). When you want a com­par­i­son, you tend to com­pare your­self with your­self, which is a much bet­ter habit than us­ing any­one else as a bench­mark. The trou­ble is, even for you, you’re a hard act to fol­low.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re men­tally ver­sa­tile and will use your mind as you would any num­ber of tools. Your mind can be a cal­cu­la­tor, a map, a sleuth, a trans­la­tor, a puz­zle solver, a flash­light — and a sleep­ing pill if need be. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Here’s an idea that might seem rad­i­cal: What if your ac­tions best rep­re­sented your own needs, feel­ings and val­ues in­stead of those of your loved one? Bring your at­ten­tion back to your­self and an in­ter­nal lo­cus of con­trol.

CAN­CER (June 22-July 22). Good for­tune starts with how you treat peo­ple, which, it turns out, is also the be­gin­ning and end re­sult. How you treat peo­ple is the whole story! For you it’s not al­ways about serv­ing and pleas­ing, but it is al­ways about re­spect­ing.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The im­pulse to do some­thing sneaky is not just about the thrill of your quick­en­ing pulse or the adrenaline rush that comes with the risk of be­ing caught. The im­pulse is also a sign of needs un­met in the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Peo­ple say that it’s not about the cards you’re dealt — that it’s how you play them that mat­ters. Of course that’s silly. Good cards win, and play­ing bad ones re­quires bluff­ing. To­day’s game will be tricky. You’ll pre­vail.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Life can be strange and com­pli­cated, es­pe­cially when love’s in­volved. The ro­man­tic shades of love bring out the most ex­treme ex­am­ples of this, which may cause you to won­der whether that kind of love is worth the trou­ble.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll be zip­ping along to­day, mov­ing in spite of your re­straints or maybe even be­cause of them. The lim­its do have a way of fo­cus­ing your power in one di­rec­tion. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). In the past you felt it best to con­cede your power to an­other. It made the sit­u­a­tion eas­ier, and at that mo­ment it seemed like the right thing to do. That mo­ment is passed. It is now time to take your power back.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Much ac­tiv­ity will cen­ter on pos­ses­sions. You’ll treat pos­ses­sions as liv­ing things, with re­spect for their pur­pose, at­ten­tion to their main­te­nance and stor­age that hon­ors their aes­thetic value.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Be­fore you leave the house, get cen­tered on what you want. This will pre­vent you from need­less wan­der­ing. See, you’ll be lucky to­day. Hearts and doors will open to you. With so few bor­ders, the lim­its must come from within.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). This will be a so­cia­ble day in which your re­la­tion­ships run har­mo­niously. If there’s the least bit of ten­sion it will serve as a spicy touch for the ul­ti­mate en­hance­ment of the tie.
