HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY MATHIS (122818)
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 28). You know what you want, but what do you do to get there? Simple. Do what it takes. Through determination and tenacity, your life moves in the direction of your vision. Highlights of the solar return include: a beautiful love letter, a trip by boat and the receipt of a check of which you’ll want to take a picture. Cancer and Taurus adore you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Most people think to ask for spiritual guidance when things aren’t going well. But why not seek spiritual guidance when things are going just fine? It makes a good time even better.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Achieving more success is never the answer. Before long, expectations and desires rise in tandem. Do what it takes to be happy now. An attitude shift might be all that’s necessary.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20). We organize our lives around the meaning of things, and yet what a thing means isn’t a fixed fact. Rather, it’s either an agreement you make with yourself or one you come to with others. Just know that meanings can change.
ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19). This issue you’re dealing with will be solved with a new frame of mind. Finding the frame of mind can be as easy as finding a picture frame. You simply experiment. What looks good to you? What works for the space you have?
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20). You can tell that someone is dangling a carrot to get you to move forward in the direction of their choosing. But as long as they actually give you the carrot, and it’s a direction that’s OK with you, all will be well.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). As a leader, your role will be to make sure everyone else has a role. You’ll be in a position to check in with each person, informing and course correcting where necessary.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). The mental exercise helping you make a decision will include posing hypothetical questions, for instance: “What would someone who’s madly in love with you suggest you do in this scenario?”
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You know yourself and so it’s not necessary to ruminate over which way to go. There will be no hesitation, no waiting. It’s like you look forward to a straight road of green lights as far as the eye can see.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). As cool as it would be to wake up one morning with the capability of observing, understanding and experiencing the world on a whole different level, these things happen gradually. Awareness takes practice. You’ll get plenty today.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). While some claim free speech as their right, others regard it as a continual obligation. As for you, talking takes more energy than you think it should today, so you’ll process silently and chime in only when necessary.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You could do the job without help, but it takes longer and is harder, and not half as fun. Make sure the others know how much you appreciate being part of an excellent team.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re compassionate and you see beyond your own situation into the heart of the world. And yet, some compartmentalization is appropriate. Knowing what is and is not your problem will help you live well today.
