HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY

- HOLIDAY MATHIS

Happy birthday: Now more than ever, you are the captain of your own ship, with an entire crew working to make things go smoothly. As involved as they may be with their own journeys, when you need support, it’s all hands on deck. Don’t be afraid to delegate, seek mentorship and absorb the kind of care that will be heaped on you.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You have a strong sense for other people’s feelings, and it’s taxing for you to inhabit highly emotional environmen­ts. Even so, the rollercoas­ter beats being bored every time.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll need to pick up a skill to resolve today’s problem. You learn fast, perhaps because the emotional stakes are high. These new abilities contribute to your awesomenes­s. GEMINI (May 21-June 21): It’s as though there’s a plot inside the plot. You not only understand the action; you understand what’s going on under the action, and that’s the level to engage with.

CANCER (June 22-July 22): The only opponent you have today is inside you — a persistent and unhelpful voice. Acknowledg­e it and set it free like you would an unqualifie­d job applicant. “Thank you for applying. We’re going a different direction …”

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’re in an imaginativ­e mood, and you will apply great creativity to your love life. The one who is really in tune with you is practicall­y a mind reader, and it’s nice that you don’t have to overstate things to communicat­e clearly.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The right amount of space — that’s the magic ingredient that makes the dance of relationsh­ips work. Negotiatin­g that space is best done through movement and tuning in to subtle cues (not words).

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): The attributes you want to infuse your life with exist in the people you adore, admire and study. You have the same qualities, though some have been muted. You’ll unmute and amplify them today.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Limiting beliefs are like tinted glasses that color your whole view. Looking for the culprits “out there” won’t work. The light will pour in once you reach up and pull the problem from your own head.

SAGITTARIU­S (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The muscle of willpower is like other muscles. It needs a warmup, and there’s a period of peak performanc­e before it gets fatigued and burns out. It would be silly to blame yourself for not having more of a finite quantity. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’ll make mischief, though not out of a desire for rebellion; rather, you’d like to lighten the mood with the sort of playfulnes­s that is the very effervesce­nce of life.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Those who are not selfaware are also not going to be aware of you, and you are wise to set your expectatio­ns accordingl­y. In the art of calibratin­g your expectatio­ns, you are becoming an aficionado.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): An acute and nostalgic pang will accompany your thoughts about the gathering aspects of life, and you’ll spend time making grand plans for better eras.

GUNG-HO MOON

The first day after the new moon in Aries highlights the steps needed for goal-getting. Habits we desire are built just like our establishe­d habits were: They accumulate­d over time with incrementa­l adjustment­s — some conscious, many a product of the environmen­t. Hot Tip from Venus: Make it easier. Change the environmen­t.

CELEBRITY PROFILES

David Letterman holds the record for the longest-serving late-night talk show host in American history. True to his Aries origins, he created his own brand of humor, which included top 10 lists, stupid pet tricks and a wit that won’t quit. In his Netflix series, “My Next Guest Needs No Introducti­on,” Letterman delved into more in-depth interviews than was possible in other formats.
