HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY MATHIS (083013)
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 30). You’ll enjoy a degree of fame this year. You may have to cope with people whose interests are opposed to your own, but this is part of what makes you stand out favorably in September. October shows you successfully representing your talent and the talent of others. December and May will be your biggest financial months. Aries and Libra people adore you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Important decisions are on the docket. You’re not interested in the choice that seems like the best one to everyone around. You want the solution that actually is the best because it’s the right fit for you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You could do it alone, but that would be stealing someone’s chance to help you. Giving you their help will raise their self-esteem, skill level and commitment to your relationship.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Consider that the person who is less than friendly toward you may be under an enormous amount of pressure. Lead the way with your love, compassion and patience.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You may feel torn by your need to keep things moving and a desire to be nice. Consider issuing a gracious invitation for someone to join you on your way to another destination.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When you make people laugh, you create such a positive feeling for all involved you want to repeat it over and over. Alas, the laws of comedy dictate that it’s only really funny the first time.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You have an unobtrusive way of getting information. Your best lead will answer the question that starts out: Do you know anyone who might have some ideas about…?
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20). Your cosmic gift of the day is poise. Your actions will be graceful; your gestures, well received. You could really take advantage of this by taking a social risk or going dancing.
ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19). You can get approximately the same hamburger on three out of four corners of the main thoroughfare. In cases where the differences are minimal, you’ll find it so hard to choose you’re likely not to choose anything at all.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Don’t take anything too personally now. Instead, focus on what needs to change to get a desired result. This is likely to start with a resolution to think positively and take the action steps to support those thoughts.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You have an advantage in competitive environments because you don’t do what the other competitors are doing. You remember or discover your own strengths and lead with those.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Unfortunately, many people are self-involved and myopic. That’s why when you meet a like-minded curious and observant type, as you will today, it’s important to make the effort to befriend that person.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The person who is making everyone laugh may be doing so intentionally for the financial benefit. As one Greek tragedian said, “It is a profitable thing, if one is wise, to seem foolish.”—Aeschylus
