HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY MATHIS (102717)
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 27). You’ve the savvy to turn a small amount into a hefty sum. This isn’t about gambling; it’s about intelligent investing. Neatness and organization solve a problem. Those you live with and near will get the benefit of your considerable skill in creating beautiful environments. Adventure calls in November and May. Sagittarius and Capricorn adore you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your deft handling of a delicate matter will earn you the trust and respect of the kind of intelligent, sensitive people who recognize the value of social skills such as yours.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ve come to the bridge. As you make your way across, appreciate all that went into building this shortcut that joins all the places you want to go. This appreciation may keep you from burning the bridge later.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The impossibilities may be, upon second thought, quite possible after all. In fact, there’s a whole range of things that might occur were any one of the elements involved to be changed or subtracted.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Sit quietly, processing your thoughts until you feel that you can accept what’s going on in your life. You might not get to that point, but you will make progress. Anyway, there is no greater success than coming to terms with now.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20). People who are just trying to help often don’t know how best to do it. Friends might overstep boundaries. Your tact will go a long way. If there’s a choice between taking issue with something and letting it go, do the latter.
ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19). Ailments of the soul require the healing balm of faith. As it is with all balms, the healing isn’t really in the ointment. The balm creates a condition in which the body can put itself back together.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20). Good news is fun to deliver. You’ll be tempted to leave the bad news for someone else to tell, or maybe if you ignore it, it will somehow go away. Hey, it’s actually worked before.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Being good can be hard. Draining. It is possible that you actually feel weary from constantly doing the right thing. Maybe there’s such a thing as being too good. Anyway, you don’t need to do wrong. Rest and do nothing instead.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your encouragement will boost the morale of your group. Your role as cheerleader is crucial, because all those little extra things you do — the efforts you make that you don’t have to make — create cohesion. You’re the glue.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There’s a powerful, driving beat behind your love — a rhythm that moves everything forward. Just be careful not to overpower anyone with your energy, because that would be counterproductive to your desire.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Expectations are so tricky. Often people really will rise to the guidelines that expectations impose. But right now, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by what occurs when you loosen up in your expectations of a loved one.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The technology will fail, glitch and even seem to mock you today, but this is all a test of your patience, and ultimately very easily solved. These issues make you extra appreciative of the devices that serve you daily.
