HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY
Happy birthday. You’re not going for the trophy; you’re just going ever forward in the same direction, and the trophy is one of the inevitable takeaways.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): It’s better to let off steam little by little than to let it build and eventually blow up. The perfect partner in letting loose will come along.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): If someone off the street were to just step into your life, that person wouldn’t be sure where to start the gratitude list. But you know where to start it. Go there and be happy.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21): It will be a scenario you feel familiar with but on guard about. You’ll prepare to say no, but inexplicably, when the moment comes, all won’t go as planned.
CANCER (June 22-July 22): You don’t know your own strength. Hint: It’s about five times more effective than you expect.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Right now, what’s needed is repetition of effort. Prove your stamina. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The problem for many is that they just don’t believe in their own kernel of greatness. You’ll remedy this for someone today.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): This is not a time for leaping. Steps forward will be more than enough.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Validation can be addictive. Knowing this, when you hear the praise, keep your head. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): It’s time to narrow your focus and home in on one goal. By getting small, you will accomplish big.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Sometimes it’s right to take “no” for an answer, and other times, such as this one, you have such a strong feeling that your offering will really help all involved that it’s worth it to move past “no” with a counteroffer.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): People will not sanction the cost of what they don’t understand. Your options are to make them understand or flesh it out yourself.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ve an instinct to disclose that’s running counter to your instinct toward charm. Consider the wisdom of the French writer Voltaire when he said that the secret to being boring is to say everything.
