Horoscopes by Holiday
Once the flower opens completely, it immediately begins moving to the next phase. The petals wither; the fruit forms; the fruit falls. Knowing this, there is no reason to rush to the new stage. Let life unfold for you slowly. The sun is about to change stations. There won't be a day exactly like this. Savor each part of the cycle.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). The hand you were dealt is but one of many factors that are influencing the game, some of which you can control, most of which you can't. So you'll dive into all that's within your control and play daringly.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There are reasons to root for the underdog, choose the road less traveled or quest for impossible outcomes. Sometimes those reasons are good enough, but today not so much. Take on the battle you know you can win.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If you don't feel like making an effort to reach out, fit in, deliver the goods, etc., well, that's telling you something, too. Maybe this situation is no longer for you, if it ever was.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You don't have to be merciless about getting your way. But if you're going to be relentless at anything, be relentlessly charming. Why force anyone's hand when you can cast a spell on it instead?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). That kindly baby sitter called time, which is supposed to keep everything from happening all at once, does not seem to be doing her job. It's like she's checked into her phone and suddenly it's a free-for-all.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). As is usually the case, much can be accomplished through hard work and continuous improvement. It does take a long time, and it's not the most exciting way, but it's the best way.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There's always a way to look at life that is cause for alarm. And there's always another way of finding the sweetness and charm in it. You do the latter, and you're so attractive because of this that you won't know whom to choose.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You were uncertain, and now you're an expert. You were new in the group, and now you're a leader. You were filled with nervous anticipation, and now it's old hat.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There are those who will go out of the way to tell you what you didn't ask to know. They're not to be believed, and in fact the truth is probably the opposite of what they say. Of course you know this. It's not your first rodeo.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Question traditional gender roles and other aspects of life in which you could be automatically playing out the script. There's a danger in slavishly following the way things have always been done.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Pay attention to what the others don't understand and subsequently ignore or cast off. With your creativity you can easily make something glorious out of the items, jobs and relationships that others can't value.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You keep putting your feelers into the situation and coming out with the same information: You're here because it worked once. But don't be afraid to reach out and explore other situations that could work even better.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 21). You're onto something totally inspired. Just remember that "almost there" isn't "there." Keep going until you reach the goal, even if it takes the entire solar return. Your loved ones will build their lives on the rock of your steadfast care and attention. Because people trust you, you'll be promoted and well-paid. Capricorn and Aquarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 27, 31, 28, 50 and 11.
TURN THE DOWNSIDE OF YOUR SIGN INTO AN ASSET: Each sign has strengths and weaknesses, and often they are the very same qualities. Jupiter-ruled SAGITTARIUS is the sign of expansion and luck. It's also the sign of indulgence. If you believe that you can't have too much of a good thing, you haven't experienced the kind of excess that Sagittarius is naturally drawn to. This sign cringes at the word "moderation." While others seem to be able to exercise portion control at the banquet of life, Sagittarius doesn't have an "off" switch. Sagittarius can make the most of the tendency by focusing on things that are truly beneficial. If you're going to have too much of something, it may as well be friends, love, music and happiness!
As the sign related to public standing and career, CAPRICORN is always conscious of power — who has it, who doesn't and why. The study of power can be a bit of a preoccupation for Capricorn, who is eager to learn how different groups and organizations are run and what it takes to rise through the ranks. Capricorn can turn this preoccupation into money by noting the needs and wants of a group and finding a way to serve them at the right price.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Kim Kardashian — who exhibits many of the qualities her sign is famous for, including a honed aesthetic sense and a love of design — has a long history of donating her earnings to charitable causes. The Pisces moonchild been known to consistently donate 10 percent of her wealth to those in need. Mercury and Uranus in Scorpio adds an air of mystery plus a dash of sizzle to everything she gets into.
