Horoscopes by Holiday

Mars in Cancer is a transformation. The warrior energy moves into a sophisticated and emotionally complex realm. Cancer is the sign of mothers and maternal nurturing which sometimes includes gentle but crafty manipulations in the name of keeping domestic life rolling peacefully along. What's good for the household or community will be good for the individual.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There's a strong temptation to obtain things, most of them unnecessary. Everything you own comes with the responsibility of keeping. Maintenance and storage are a real concern. Pause to consider this before you buy.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). People ask for your advice but what they really want is your company and your approval. You figure out what they want to do and then advise them to do it. You're exactly the support system they were looking for.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). James Bond wasn't born cool, rather he's a highly trained agent whose mastered strategies for dealing with whatever life throws at him. Think of Bond today as you welcome opportunities to develop coping strategies.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). It's as easy to be useful as it is to be wasteful. You'll lean into choices that conserve your resources. You'll make sure the action you execute has a reaction that serves your purposes.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A responsibility becomes burdensome. You may wonder why you agreed to this, but you don't have to the next time around. For now, you'll keep your word. Later, you'll keep your options open.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You'd rather see how things really are. An ugly truth made to look pretty is just disturbing. Better to be upfront than to try and put on a good front. "Lilies that fester smell far worse than weeds." — Shakespeare

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Believe in your vision. Don't let your inner critic get in the way. You and your critic are like a long-married couple who has found a way to work together in spite of differences.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Don't wait until you have the money, just pretend like you already have it. When it comes down to it, your life won't be all that different because of a few thousand dollars. Decide to feel rich and act in kind.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You'll be the new person. Introduce yourself. The others probably feel just as awkward as you, or at least remember when they did. Tonight: When you don't get what you want, you get what you need and that's even better.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Something changes for the better. Your optimistic plans come together. You know yourself and what you need to do. You've never been so on track with your mission.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You've kept a tight rein on your feelings and now you can afford to let loose. In fact, it's the healthiest move at this point. Relaxation improves perspective. You'll be even funnier than usual tonight.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Keep moving in the direction of your idols. You're becoming increasingly like the ones you so admire. You'll soon achieve a symbol of success beyond what you thought possible and with greatly personal significance.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 25). Welcome to your year of fans. You'll attract and have fun with people who greatly admire you. You'll be given great leeway to express yourself and you'll be imitated and paid for this too. More highlights: a renovation, a change in your working style and an adventure with four friends. Leo and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 2, 29, 4, 48 and 16.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Last year, Sarah Jessica Parker made her mark once again in the Halloween film canon with Disney's "Hocus Pocus 2." Parker and husband Matthew Broderick experience the magic of a solar return that's but a few days apart. The sun-crossed pair share three children and a love affair that's spanned almost three decades. And though her fashion may be ever-forward, Parker's natal Capricorn moon tells the story of a traditionalist.
