HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY MATHIS (112913)
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 29). The next four weeks are sociable, and you’ll sample life. Imagination is stirred in January. You’ll come up with inventive solutions for everything –relationships to transportation to daily life. You’ll win a case or contest in March. Give all you can to the one who needs it in April. Leo and Pisces people adore you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It is vigilant to guess at the motives of others, but take a break from this, as it’s likely a waste of time. If you want to know why a person is acting in a certain way, just ask.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When someone makes the same mistake repeatedly, it might not be a mistake at all. It could be a personality style that you are better off to accept and expect.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Whether it’s for work or fun, getting into motion is the hardest part. After that, you’re home free. The feeling that you are moving forward is motivation enough to bring you to the end.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20). You have to spell things out for some people. Expecting them to know how to act or pick up on your social cues will set you up for disappointment. Sure, it’s more work, but it just happens that way sometimes.
ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19). You can be gentle when you need to be, and you need to be now. A certain person will run unless you are unrelentingly kind and reassuring. This person, who can’t take even the smallest amount of criticism, will run unless you are kind and reassuring.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20). The way your family members act doesn’t have to be a reflection on you. Let people be the way they are, and try not to get involved unless it seems truly necessary. You’ll make your own impressions.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The reward for taking a risk won’t be the prize at the end—that is likely to be made of plastic and require regular dusting. The real reward is the feeling that you’ve truly achieved something.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s important to react to what happens in a timely and proportionate manner. The “proportionate” part is important. You’ll get very little accomplished by overreacting to the events around you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll feel like stealing away to recharge. If you can manage it, you should. Spending time alone teaches you to be there for yourself. It is in your power to make yourself feel safe.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It’s the same scene, but some of the people involved will remember it with pleasure, and some will remember it with pain. With some sensitivity, you can tip the balance toward pleasure for someone on the fence.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Expose yourself repeatedly to the thing that makes you uncomfortable, and you’ll find that it loses power over you. You’ll become comfortable whether or not you want to be.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll be drawn to situations in which you have no idea what is expected of you. Most people avoid that kind of thing, but you get a charge from the unknown.
