HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY MATHIS (100518)
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 5). Most measures of joy, well-being and effort are internal. Only you know what’s worth it and what’s not. It’s your year to trust your own assessments and do what makes you happy. Highlights this solar return include an extremely satisfying vacation, a new way to enjoy your family and a metal of some kind. Cancer and Sagittarius adore you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The best way is not to compare yourself to anyone. But since that’s also a very unrealistic expectation of yourself today, then at least compare yourself to an example that is both attainable and worthy of you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). How can you make things clearer to the most amount of people with the least amount of cost, trouble or time? The answer may be in a sign. A message built for all to read saves you having to whisper to each person.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re always training people. Each interaction is a training. It never ends. Give a thought to what you’re teaching as you go about your day, specifically, how you’re teaching people to treat you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’re handling a lot of responsibility today but you also needn’t take it so seriously. Keep your perspective and your humor and you’ll stay relaxed enough to handle anything that comes up.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Set an expectation early on about what you’d like to see happen. Otherwise, no one knows quite what to do. You’ll wind up with all the frustrations of a cat-herder.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20). You’ll have the pleasure of getting to know someone through teamwork on a project. It’s the best way to learn what people are all about, and it will be a very accurate picture of what future work and play together will be like.
ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19). You are gracious and social even when you don’t feel like dealing with people. Somehow doing it anyway just puts you right in the mood, and as a direct result, good things happen for you.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20). Don’t underestimate the power of feeling liked. Even people who profess not to care if others like them or not, may really appreciate a sign of your acceptance.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Should you stick with what you know, or make a switch to the new way? That’s the juncture you’ll come to today and both paths have pros and cons. Truthful testimonials and recommendations will help you decide.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Since what you say always reflects what’s going on inside you, the easiest way to say the right thing is to be the right thing. You may need to sort through some feelings and get clarity. It will step up your conversational game.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The competitor with nothing to lose will surpass the one who has to make a strategic choice about what to risk — an important consideration in today’s proceedings.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It’s the little ways a person shows you that he or she is paying attention that will go straight to your heart and turn someone into your favorite in an instant.
