HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY MATHIS (081117)
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 11). You work hard, and you’re consistent. Because of your determined and predictable efforts, you’ll win a major prize. When you meet someone new in November, it will feel like a reunion. Together you’ll quickly accomplish important things. New accounts and big deals will sweeten your leisure in 2018. Sagittarius and Libra adore you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It’s what always happens: You love someone, and they change. You want to change, so, hey, try it on yourself! Love yourself as you are and then watch as you quickly blossom into the next iteration.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The absence of judgment is a nice thing to claim or strive for, but it’s not realistic to believe you’re not going to make assessments all through the conversations if not the relationship. You judge. But you judge mostly kindly.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). “Look on the bright side,” they say, and yet that side only applies to around half of the total day, give or take, depending on the time of year. To know a place is to know it in the light and also in the dark.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You love a person more than the distance that’s between you, regardless of what’s causing that distance. It might be time or place or age or lifestyle. When love can’t bridge it, more love can.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Because you’re the pioneer of the zodiac, when there is a great deal of certainty and knowledge about the path, it won’t be your first choice. Lost and Adventure are best mates; one seldom travels without the other.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Forgive yourself for the mistakes that led you to this perfect here and now. How do you know it’s perfect? Because it is the current reality, and there is nothing else that falls into the category of “current reality.”
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). What happens between people can be confusing, but don’t worry; your heart will translate events and ideas into its native language, the language of love. Tears and laughter are both in the heart’s lexicon.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20). The one who wants to know what goes on in your head is (perhaps subconsciously) planning to be around you more in the future, and it therefore behooves that person to understand you.
ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19). Despite the fact that the astrological phrase associated with your sign is ”I am,” you sometimes forget the “who” of you. When it happens today it will be because you’re in transition, and it’s too soon to tell the outcome.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20). You have many people who want to be with you through the entire story and won’t bail in the scary parts or during the slow exposition. These loyal types won’t require you to always be the strong hero, by the way.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Couples who have been together for a long while sometimes get irritated by every little thing the other person does. Everything can’t be wrong, though. All relationships will benefit from a little more space and time away.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). The blue crayon is the one most reach for to color the sky, and yet the sky is more often other colors. Your eyes will be open to a reality that is different from the agreed upon depiction of it.
