HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY MATHIS (042619)
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 26). You had a hard time starting out and this gave you more grit. Now you’l put that to use on a challenge that, at times, will feel like it was custom made for you. Everyone gets to see you at your best, though you hardly notice because you’re so into the game. Additions to both your support system and your family tree are in store. Pisces and Leo adore you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You could try to hide your feelings, but it’s hard and it also won’t work. Loved ones are too perceptive. The best way is to find a path to feeling more positively about the scene. Frame it differently.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your resources may seem precious and rare to you right now, but there’s actually a lot more of this coming to you. So, while you wouldn’t want to waste, neither should you obsess. You will be further blessed.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Those who are down on their luck will be given pity. However, what’s better to give is respect and a firm belief that there are deeper wells of strength to draw on. You’ll find other ways to help as well.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may feel you’re recovering from something, but don’t know from what. If part of you needs extra care, who are you to stand in the way of that? Go easy.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It’s easy to avoid drama if you you’re not interested. You look the other way, don’t engage, change the subject or just drive on by. Those who can’t seem to ignore drama may be secretly in love with it.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You don’t have to worry about how you’re going to get to the end of this project. What matters is how you’re going to get to the end of the next 10 minutes of it, and then the 10 minutes after that. Keep chugging.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Directionless people can either waste your time, or help you. For them to help you, you’ll have to be a strong leader who imparts, with your vision and influence, a shared goal.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have more work to do than the people around you. How annoying! If you even start thinking about how unfair it is, you’re sunk. You’ll be better off for accomplishing these things, that’s the truth. Keep going.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Of course, you want to do things for the people you love and for those you find attractive and interesting. But you really grow your heart by contributing to people who don’t meet those criteria.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Interesting competition gets you energized — or paralyzed. But if that happens, you can get over it quickly. Resolve not to be jealous. Realize that you bring something different. Then just do you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20). It’s hard to get emotional needs met when you don’t know what they are. There’s nothing shameful about not knowing. Learning the language of emotion is a skill developed over time. The first step is to get curious about it.
ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr.19). A person invests in a dream item, cares for it, shows it off, and decades later it’s at a garage sale for a few bucks. History is heartless. At least you appreciate it. And someone will appreciate and bond with you over that.
