HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY MATHIS (051019)
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 10). You show up to handle things. Or you just show up, and then life gives you new things to handle. Because you’re bold and public about being ready for anything, you’ll quickly find the people and jobs most suited to you. The words that best characterize this solar return are: industrious, collective and fulfilling. Gemini and Aquarius adore you.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20). There are days to meander, thus increasing your chances for inspiration, felicity and novelty, and days when meandering will disproportionate increase your desire to stay the course (today).
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When you get too caught up in small details that don’t matter, it will set off alarms in your head that say you might be playing too small. Pay attention to bigger things and the alarms subside.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s said that when one door closes other opens. Since 90 percent of the doors you walk through will be opened or closed by your own hand on the knob, don’t wait around for any of that nonsense.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You don’t always do things for the money. In fact, for you to get involved, there have to be at least two other good reasons beyond the financial. If the proposed line of action will lead to a better story, you’re likely to take it.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). On some level, it’s good to be among people who make you feel uncomfortable. In that environment, you’ll learn very fast and in ways that couldn’t be duplicated in any other setting.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Many minds on the problem make excellent solutions more likely. If the others are thinking big, try thinking small. If they are thinking fantastical, think practical.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Doing what’s fair and doing what’s correct are often the same action. Not always. Today shows you an instance where following the rules and the “correct” way is actually biased and unfair.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Even though wishing can’t make it so, much that is so began with a wish. Spend time with people who follow through and you’ll be inspired to do the same.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). While it may feel momentarily great to be the smartest person in the room, it’s a sign that you’re in the wrong room. Go where you can learn something from the others. You’ll thrive in environments that challenge you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There’s so much that can be solved with proper sleep that it could be a major waste to apply any other fix before the right amount of rest and relaxation has been achieved.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20). Honesty is an expensive emotional investment. You have to be rich in integrity to be honest, and have deep pockets of courage, too, because it’s risky to tell people what they might not want to hear.
ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19). You can see the flaws, but only a spoilsport would be quick to point them out. You hang back, cool and observant. Some people are still having fun trying to believe, and what’s the harm in that?
