HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY MATHIS (083112)
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 31). You’re motivated not only to make a living, but to make a difference. This drive to do good in the world guides key decisions through the end of the year. January brings aesthetic changes to your domestic environment. Those you teach celebrate you in March. You’ll have extra money in December and May. Pisces and Sagittarius people adore you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Luckily, knowing who you are and what you want to do with your life is not a prerequisite for operating successfully. Because you’re uncertain, you’re also open-minded. More options will become available to you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Functional surroundings could send the wrong message. You suddenly care about being seen as powerful. The power position includes something luxurious in your surroundings.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your emphasis on self-discipline borders on the superstitious, mostly because you realize the stellar impact supportive habits have on your destiny.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll take an unexpected journey. Where you wind up looks almost nothing like the image you started out with in your mind, and yet there are some striking similarities.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You won’t leave anything to chance. Even your accidents are planned out. These strategic actions are adding up to a pretty exciting future.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Inflexible goals impede new possibilities, and you don’t want to limit your options that way. Stay open to where life leads. When you go to bed tonight, you’ll feel good about the way you grew through the day.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20). Time is an equalizer: Everyone gets the same amount in a day. You plot your hours carefully now, realizing there are barely enough for all you want to accomplish.
ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19). As the artist of your destiny, you won’t be using the usual brushes and paints. You’ll be more conceptual, making a lovely pattern by arranging disparate pieces.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20). If you have to work really hard at being happy, the effort pretty much guarantees an unsuccessful result. Instead, accept where you are and explore it. Honesty brings contentment.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Avoid hopping on board for coaching, information products, business systems, new and improved methods, transformational treatments and the like. Today, chances are, you just don’t need it.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your success occurs for a simple reason: You do what you say you’re going to do. You are a powerful person because your word is gold, especially to yourself.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When you are as open-minded as you are, something that could be called a failure may also be called a success. Both terms are equally accurate descriptions.
