Horoscopes by Holiday

The way it goes with seeds is they are completely absorbed in the process of becoming. There is nothing left of the seed once the plant is fully formed. It's almost as though the seed was one lifetime and the plant is an entirely different one. This Earth Day, the Taurus sun and Uranus in Taurus favor our becoming. Trust the process.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). With a deadline drawing near, you'll have a choice. You can do it very well. You can do it on time. Or you can do it within the budget. Choose two. Only two are possible.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). What's clear about today is that the issues of society are your issues, too. You almost feel your connectedness to the human race as a heavy responsibility, and perhaps that's exactly right.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Quiet confidence is attractive. Arrogance is repellent. There's a line to walk, and you walk it like a tightrope artist. Your genuine care for others will be like the long pole you use for balance.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You can't always make what you want to do and what you end up doing match. But today you can, and so, you should. It will be an important cornerstone win that you can build on.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If the needle of time could be set back to the beginning of the record, it would play the same song. So there is no need or use for longing, regret or wishing things were any other way than they are right now.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Achilles had his heel. Sampson had his haircut. And you have your own version of a small vulnerability that has a disproportionately huge impact on your strength. Protect yourself accordingly.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You'll do something that makes perfect sense to you. Some of the others won't understand. How could they? Without anything close to your experiences to draw from, puzzlement is natural. Believe in yourself. No need to explain.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Resisting peer pressure isn't just hard; sometimes it can be downright unnatural. Humans are hard-wired to stick together! That's why it's so important to be around people with similar values who do the things you admire.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Love brings out the best in you. It makes you more creative, happier and more energetic. When you have to be strong for someone else, you'll realize just how strong you really are.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You don't always have the luxury of choosing what style you'll receive your life in. Some things only come one way. The rarer a thing is, the fewer your options. Luckily, if you don't like them, you'll just do without.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). How many times can you read the same book, see the same movie or hear the same song before you're sick of it? Yet there are works you can return to again and again — soul nutrition that you never tire of.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You will be uplifted by the camaraderie of people doing what you like to do. Whether it's business, sport or art matters little. If you like it and they like it, you'll all be lifted when you do it together.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 22). Your cosmic birthday gift is an answer. This is what will solve a big problem that prevents a hundred small ones. It's also what will pave the way for you to advance other goals you haven't been able to think about (or have yet to conceive) because you've been so busy running around trying to solve a hundred little problems. Aquarius and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 2, 27, 30 and 11.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "I subscribe to a service that alerts to me to astrological changes that will affect my life. I received a letter in the mail that stated my luck would change on March 10, and my husband got very sick after that. He is in jail, but he was taken to a hospital. Now he is doing better and back in jail. This service wants me to send more money for alerts next year. I want to know what will happen, but I'm afraid, too, especially since I can't do anything about it. What should I do? I'm a superstitious Scorpio."

Take back your power. Instead of waiting to find out what will happen and reacting, decide what you want to happen and get to work. Each sign has a superpower. Scorpio's is transformation. And though you cannot change your husband, his health or the penal system, you can work on yourself and your own life. What improvements can you make to yourself and your part of the world? You may decide to seek guidance from external sources, but don't rely on them more than your internal compass. You are abler, wiser and more magical than you know. Trust yourself.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Those born under the sign of the bull are renowned for their stubborn streaks, but this quality also translates into tenacity, nonconformity and iconoclastic style. Actor Jack Nicholson is a perfect example, known for taking on the world exclusively on his own terms. "I'm not good with being told," Nicholson admitted, like a classic Taurus. "I just immediately start resisting the situation."
