HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY MATHIS (051719)
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 17). You’ll have the power to choose where you spend most of your time and with whom; your destiny springs from these choices. The exceptional fortunes of July include an expensive ticket gifted to you. Hobbies turn into moneymakers in 2020. Devote yourself to making and marketing your reputation. Gemini and Aquarius adore you.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20). There’s something relaxing about maintenance appointments such as routine doctor or dentist visits or an automobile oil change. You’re where you’re supposed to be and the world outside just has to wait.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Every relationship has rules, though most of them are unspoken. You’ll be aware of how the rules change as you move in and out of the various concentric circles that span the realms between intimacy and distance.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). We may walk the same earthly plane, but there’s a vastly different internal reality inside each person. You’ll be extremely effective with this knowledge at the core of today’s interactions.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You don’t need people to be just like you in order to feel a kinship and affinity with them. You thrive on knowing a diverse set of people, and today will bring proof that you’re much better for the wide variety of interests.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). When the action doesn’t go to plan, you’ll quickly come up with a new one. This is better than passively riding out the direction everything seems to be falling in. There’s something to save or affect here. Believe in yourself.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you know that something is right but you don’t know why it’s right, then you’ll make the correct choice, but you won’t be able to convince others to make it, too. Find out the reasons.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Time all to yourself seems like an impractical indulgence when it should seem more like what it actually is–a choice for health and well-being. You’re happier and more loving once you’ve tended to your tranquility needs.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). “You’re going places,” said the casting director to the actor, “just not with us.” You may echo this sentiment as you meet really talented and appealing people whom you don’t quite know how to “cast” in your life yet.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Wanting to be a part of a different scene is a waste of the one you’re in. This one is good! Trust that there are plenty of opportunities to be excellent from exactly where you are.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Valuable things become even more so when they are shared, while insubstantial things are diminished when too many people get their hands on them.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20). The Irish proverb “Praise youth and it will prosper,” was a novel idea when it first came about. Culture has shifted. Many claim children are now praised to a perilous degree. You’ll dole praise judiciously and fairly.
ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19). Being a good judge of character is part talent and part skill. You’ve always had a sense about who to pursue, tolerate or avoid, though you’ve occasionally been tricked by charm or good looks. Not anymore. You’re seasoned.
