HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY MATHIS (020119)
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 1). Dare to make happiness a priority. People will mirror your happy state. Because they feel happier around you, you’ll get better results, sweeter deals, more pleasing relationships and the satisfaction of knowing you made people’s time here better. March shows you in a new position, and you’ll be boosted again in May. Leo and Gemini adore you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). To be someone’s soft place to land is a beautiful role. You’ve needed that in your own life, when it wasn’t there or when it was. You know the difference, and so you’re happy to provide.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20). Sometimes it takes laser focus to progress, and other times, like today, it just takes moving forward in the same direction all the others around you are going, like you’re one fish in the school.
ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19). Don’t always take the safe path. It’s not scenic nor more direct, and really not smoother. The redeeming thing about that path is that it’s known. So take the unknown and less traveled path.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20). You like a person because of how they laugh, sound, look, smell, reason and more. But if one of those things is off, it can impede the progress of the relationship.
SCORPI0 If you feel you know everything about a person, you’ll be uninterested in them until something happens to shake it up, reminding that you can never know everything about a person.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Don’t mind being a servant (everyone is in one way or another) but you want to make your own terms for your servitude, and this you should do. Spell them out. Write them down. Understand your rights and responsibilities.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Make a move to show you know your own value. You are one of a kind. As you honor your unique character, the world will seem to cater to your sensitivities and proclivities.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Critiques are not personal and shouldn’t be taken as such. The proverbial red marks on your essay are signals that there’s room for improvement. Take the note; get better. Before you know it, you’ll be a master.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Doors open and close quickly today. Drink more water. It will keep your brain sharp and ready to jump through the opportunities as they open up, without hesitation.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When one person in the couple is happy, the other is, too. That’s love. Compassion takes it one step further — to be happy because another human is happy, perhaps a human you don’t even know. That’s great love.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Noisy, superfluous thoughts could easily distract you from what’s useful and important if you weren’t so vigilant. Ways to mentally quiet down include meditation and exercise.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The new currents will be strong as riptides. How does one keep from getting caught up in something as powerful as that? Don’t fight it in a polarized way. That’s futile. How can you move sideways?
