HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY MATHIS (042712)
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Apr. 27).You’ll break big goals down into small chunks and get to work in May. June puts a new person in your life, and you’ll be creatively inspired because of this influence. August is your chance to trade up on a big-ticket item. With great emotional maturity, you’ll lead the way for loved ones in September. Virgo and Pisces people adore you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You are finding a new sense of identity apart from your family role. You accept that your family did their best for you, and this is what allows you to accept yourself.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When your sign mate Walt Whitman wrote that there “will never be any more perfection than there is now,” he wasn’t talking about the “now” that happened back then. He was talking about the “now” in which you are reading this.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Righteousness doesn’t solve anything and instead promotes a sense of inequality and division. That’s why you’ll focus on yourself and on doing what it takes to make your life better, regardless of the wrongdoings of others.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll be playing a social game of sorts. Some will take it far more seriously than you do, and this gives you an advantage. You’ll rise above the situation and form a strategy instead of reacting to the play-by-play.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll be brimming with cool, novel ideas for creating fun times with your loved ones. Of course, until you try them out, you can’t tell just how cool they are. Follow through, and bring a camera.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Like a silk cloth dropped from a monument, life reveals itself to you with a degree of pomp and circumstance. You’ll enjoy the way events will be framed in a certain context with accompanying rituals.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You recognize the sound of a soul’s cry, and it won’t be heard with your ears but with your heart. You’ll be in tune with the way others are feeling, and you’ll be a healer when those feelings are raw.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Usually, your actions are motivated by many different factors at once. What you do today will be motivated by a sense of duty, your own aesthetic enthusiasm and the chance for political gain.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). If you know what it’s like to love a certain person and not have that love returned, then you may also understand that it is just the kind of loss from which great art springs. You’ll turn past pain into something beautiful.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re a true friend and stellar partner, which you prove with today’s approach to relationships. Loan your strength to another instead of using it as a weapon of control.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20). Plan your day intelligently in the hope less time will be wasted in mindless activities and useless chatter. Forethought works brilliantly keeping you moving along your path.
ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19). Today brings a surprise and the thrill of experiencing what you couldn’t have anticipated. You are always finding new ways to unwind. Tonight, your favorite music will transport your mind to a beautiful place.
