HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY MATHIS (110317)
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 3). You’ll do it by yourself, for yourself, over the next six weeks — with amazing results, due to your habit of breaking things down into small steps. Plans will change to accommodate someone who needs you. Ultimately, it’s a lifestyle improvement! In 2018 riches come from teamwork and community spirit. Capricorn and Leo adore you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The sands of time don’t stop for drama, and neither should you. Take a quick scan to assess what’s relevant to you then move on. Avoid gossip. It’s good to satisfy curiosity unless that curiosity is of the morbid variety.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). “Sky above, earth below, fire within” — this creed has served you well, though you really could use a water sign influence to balance it all out. Today you’ll get just that.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’re not sure if the project is finished, the job has ended, or the relationship is played out. Make no move. Wait to see what else comes up. Punctuate this with a semicolon instead of a period, because there’s probably more.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A relationship is changing again. You’ve already been strangers, friends, enemies, friends again and more. And now you are back to being a little unsure of what the other person will do. Keep up your guard as you find out.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20). You definitely won’t master the whole project in a day or even a month. Anyway, big thinking can be overwhelming and can bog you down now. Focus on being the master of this hour, then the next and the next.
ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19). Of course you’re interested in what affects your needs and goals. If you can’t figure out what’s in it for you, naturally you’ll lose interest. Knowing this is how things work, you’ll craft something irresistible for you and yours.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20). You’ll lead with your generosity of spirit, though you still must act out of self-interest in many matters, as it would be irresponsible not to. Self-care is a duty and a public service.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ve undergone so many incarnations in your lifetime already, and you’re about to add another to the story. Follow your curiosity wherever it may lead. If you’re not sure if you should ask, ask anyway.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Maybe you started late, or maybe you don’t come from the same place as the others. Whatever makes you different, lean into that. You’ll succeed without having to hide anything.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It’s futile to fight against the waves of change. They are so powerful, and you’ll only exhaust yourself. Stay relaxed, and provide no resistance. Eventually, out of the turmoil, you’ll start moving steadily in a direction that makes sense.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There’s no time to waste on hating the experiences that led you here. That will cause you to fall back. Instead, affirm: Here you are, shaped by what happened and also by what might happen. Fall forward.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Each stage of your life seems to demand you to be a little different from who you were. And now you’re busy figuring out what stays and what goes for the new version.
