Horoscopes by Holiday

Consider the oddball in your life. You probably have more than one. And if the oddball is you, consider adding a few more to the pack, as these disrupters of the status quo are good in groups right now. There's a lunar alliance with Pluto, and the Aquarian vibes are flowing free-spirited like they do.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you're not excited about what's on your plate, don't change your attitude; change what's on the plate. Your attitude will follow. Today brings a chance to speak up. If you don't ask, you don't get.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Reward is ahead. Not just a pat on the back but real fulfillment, the kind that sneaks into your soul and carves out a place to rest awhile, and maybe even stay forever.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Relationships shift with every move and influence. You'll steer the ship to your own benefit, and when you do this, others will benefit as well. Show your work! The more accessible you are, the more money you'll make.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Don't rush into something just because it's convenient. Minimal research will show better options. Maximum research will confuse things. Be strategic and to the point, limiting your inquiry process to a few hours.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Friendliness brings opportunity. You're friendly all the time. You never stop smiling at people, introducing yourself, being generous with the compliments and the quest for common ground. You enjoy this, so it's not really an effort but it's attitude that will pay off.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Ambition can block your view. What you're seeing is everything you want to be true. That's different from everything that is true, but it doesn't make it the wrong focus. Fantasy worlds are a gift. They teach us what to aim for when we touch back to reality.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Of all the justice that can be served — and there is a huge variety of tones this can come in — the most profound justice is poetic. The humor and specificity of certain details falling into a scene will be rich indeed.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When you put yourself out there, it takes a second to figure out just how to position yourself. You have specific needs and roles to fill, but you're not in the least bit selfish about it. You want to help others, too. Relax and inquire.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You see a solution that will work for you, but others have their own ideas. Don't try to push any particular idea about things. Everyone will come to their own conclusion, and they will magically coincide and work to the advantage of all.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). People process things differently. It will be baffling, but that doesn't mean things are in any way off. This is one of those times when wrong is so right, you couldn't have planned it any better.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You're not in a competition, and yet there are people who will gladly play your cards for you if you leave them on the table. So don't. Keep your cards close to the vest and play them like only you can.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). What's being traded is a currency other than money. It's something difficult to account for, but in the end, it will be very clear what it bought. And aren't you the perfect person to understand such a nuanced exchange!

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 24). This trip around the sun is like stepping into a time machine to younger days. There's a freshness to relationships and a sense of wonder reminiscent of childhood. More highlights: Travel combines with the most exciting events you've seen yet. You'll spiff up your domestic scene, level up your habits and zip up deals that markedly improve your financial picture. Scorpio and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 15, 21, 4 and 16.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Mindy Kaling is a writer on the highly anticipated "Legally Blonde 3" featuring Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Coolidge.

Cancer is the sign associated with mothers, and Kaling's maternal instinct begins with her child and extends to her charity work for children around the world.
