HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY MATHIS (090117)
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 1). The love coming into your life will grow and grow. You’ll sail the uncharted territory and make your own map in October. In November, choices that seem monumental are actually as silly as worrying about choosing which side of the bread to butter. Not knowing makes it exciting. Dive in: It’s delicious either way. Sagittarius and Pisces adore you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Some things are beautiful because they fit so perfectly into a well-defined niche. Other things are beautiful because they are so difficult to explain or define. The latter kind brings today’s wonderment.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The human fight-or-flight response only works with outside stimuli. No human can run fast enough to get away from his or her inner life. Fighting with it is futile, too. An accepting, gentle conversation will do much good, though.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Nothing is interesting until someone is interested in it. When you pay attention and hook into what fascinates you, you’ll make the subject more appealing to others. Your curiosity is, in essence, a public service.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Relax. Let the stressful thoughts float by without grabbing hold of them. There’s a lot running through your head that you can safely dismiss, if only because you’ve already thought it before. What’s new and important will stand out.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). People show appreciation in the way they know how. Often, it’s not in the timeliest or politest way, but we’re not all coming from the same teaching in that regard. Let it go and accept kindness however it comes.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). They’re seeking the same thing that you are: love, peace and connection. Of course, a fair exchange of goods, services and money would be nice, too. You just might get it all.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20). When you get a whiff of something that reminds you of the past, this can trigger an incommensurable emotional response in you that’s not an accurate representation of what’s actually going on.
ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19). Many situations are ambiguous. It’s the way we interpret them that gives them context and meaning. To take a neutral situation and turn it into something negative is to needlessly drain a little joy from your life. Let in the light.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20). When working harder doesn’t solve it, stop. You don’t want to exhaust your energy in the wrong direction. Also, there’s no need to prove you’re the hardest worker. Anyway, you’re more into getting results. So ask for advice.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Contraction is the natural reaction to the cold or hardness of either external or internal circumstances–a narrowing of focus and life. Now what will you do to counter it?
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You know a lot on the subject at hand and will be asked for your opinion. You’ll be slow to weigh in, though, ever aware that there are always new insights. Peers will respect your humility.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When you’re really “on” (as you’ll find you will frequently be over the next three weeks) your stories will be like theme park rides taking people out of the atmosphere into a new world before returning them safely back to the car park.
