Horoscopes by Holiday

To turn from pain is violence. A lot of people choose not to see the pain, as though that makes the violence not count, but it still counts anyway. Some can't help but see the pain, however invisible or covered up it may be. Perhaps there's nothing to be done for the pain, but awareness alone brings a degree of peace under the Aquarius moon.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Who is on your side? Not that people have to be on your side for you to get something out of interacting with them. But if they do happen to be on Team You, you're going to feel much more comfortable and free around them.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Lying opens the door to doubt. It makes it hard to believe or to be believed. There's a small and tempting lie hanging over you — maybe it seems like the kinder choice — but if you can avoid it, do.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Improvement is the goal. If improvement is always the goal, eventually you'll hit the heights. But if you make the heights the goal, every small win will be diminished by the cruelty that is comparison.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). For the sake of being orderly, you may have to cut something out. You may have to lose a lot of something, actually, but the remaining part should be much easier to manage.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The simplicity of your approach will be disarming to those dealing with massive complexities. And as they pause to observe, perhaps in wonderment or maybe just to chuckle to themselves, you'll make your next brilliant move.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Strongly consider putting your thoughts into written form, especially in a letter to someone you appreciate. Everything about the written expression will be thoughtfully received, maybe even cherished.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you can keep to the topics and activities that contribute to your health and stay on purpose, this is no small thing. Reward it. You might be surprised how few people can do this.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Every family has its own kind of delicate balance to strike, and today you're throwing weight in this corner or the other just to keep things afloat. Don't wear yourself out over it. Give others a chance to contribute.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your family balance may be upset, but this is very positive. It's what had to happen to strengthen the bonds. Tonight, you're open-minded. You may even be willing to travel beyond reality as you know it.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Do you have people around you who believe in you even more than you believe in yourself? Because that's a gift. Treasure them, and let them know about that, too!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Today's luck springs from appreciating where you come from, partly because you're now experienced enough to understand the pressures and freedoms of adulthood and the difficulties involved in raising another human.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). In the wizarding world, you say your spell, wave your wand, and it's done. In the physical world, there's so much more breath and flesh to involve in it. Maybe that's better. Work will feel good to you today.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 24). It's not that you want a total change, but a few key refinements on your wish list will be granted in the next three months, and this will up your entire game. January is the start of a new level of self-love and acceptance. March brings a change of scenery, and June is all about building up your loved ones. Gemini and Capricorn adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 44, 5, 16, 21 and 37.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: The other person's intentions delight you, whether or not they land right. This is love. TAURUS: All you're doing is finding out what's a good match and what isn't. Take nothing personally. GEMINI: Your desires might not match up perfectly, but there's a resonance that makes things very interesting. CANCER: As you get deeper and deeper into your interest, you get more and more attractive. LEO: You're not sure if someone is telling the whole truth. The question becomes: "How much does it really matter?" VIRGO: The way to have the greatest possible control over your surroundings and the people in them is to be alone. LIBRA: If your victory makes the other person happy, you know the other person is really for you. SCORPIO: Your presence will be requested. You earned this. SAGITTARIUS: If it's too predictable or controlled, it won't be a magical night. Leave openings for things to happen that enhance the story. CAPRICORN: Youth has its own kind of non-reality. You'll be an objective witness to this. AQUARIUS: The right connection comes with a dose of detachment — just the level necessary to enjoy the situation without completely buying into it. PISCES: The approval of a parent will somehow affect your love life.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Aquarius and Sagittarius are the couple to watch, with the lighthearted, silly fun they bring to the social sector this weekend. These two don't need to have much in common on the surface to hit it off. Between the open-minded friendliness of Aquarius and the adventurous flame that burns in Sagittarius, these two create commonalities in real-time in their shared journey.
