HOROSCOPES BY HOLIDAY MATHIS (080919)
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 9). What if someone were interested enough in you and what you were doing to listen for hours, invest lots of money and be generally enthralled with your nearness? Well, you’ll get plenty of that sort of attention over the next 12 months, even though you’ll be too seriously fascinated by your work to revel in such things. Aries and Aquarius adore you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You know exactly who your role model is. This certain someone would be flattered by your admiration, though you don’t need to actually have an interaction to reap the benefits of this dynamic.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). While it’’s sometimes better to decide how you’d like to feel and then cultivate that feeling, today it’s better to keep it simple with a few tangible and measureable goals.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You learn from every interaction. Some lessons improve your mood, and others dampen it. The change in feeling you experience is just proof that the lesson took hold.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Take on the job that no one wants to do. You’ll make a mistake, and it will be inconvenient and uncomfortable, but there will be no regret, because the experience is invaluable.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll think deeply into matters, and this will stretch over the course of many days. You assume that everyone is like you, but it’s not true. Many aren’t paying such close attention. All the more reason why you should.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). New people are interested in you. Don’t let them get confused by too much information. Share your story thoughtfully with one continuous narrative that fits the past into the present.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Why do you idolize a certain someone? Often the role models we choose aren’t really the actual person but what the person represents. Through curiosity about these ideas and ideals, you’ll learn something about yourself.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20). Not celebrating your success would be a mistake. The small wins especially need acknowledgment. These daily tasks are the lifeblood of your hopes and dreams. They count, and they need to be treated that way.
ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19). You’ve been through trying times, and this isn’t one of them. This is a “doing” time. Strike “try” from the vocabulary. You already know the right action. Take it.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20). You’ll nurture a strong connection by simply showing up to the events that mean something to your loved ones. They will be buoyed and encouraged by your presence.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are kind to people you don’t know, which is in keeping with your character. You’re even kinder to people you know but don’t like, which is your character’s strengthening and toning exercise.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). In the lessons of life, people may skip around learning different things at different stages, but there really is no skipping ahead. So don’t be jealous when you notice someone is at a stage that’s foreign to you. All in good time.
