Horoscopes by Holiday

The cosmic aspects put a twist in love's drink. We might be surprised who captures our attention. Even someone who lived in a different time and/or location can attract the romantic imagination. Sure, the bond is one of ideology, but when you think about it, that's as valid as many real-time relationships. Kinship begins with the idea of a person, and in many relationships, that's also where it ends.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Delays don't have to cause upset. There's no need to rush or push because the delay may very well be the big opportunity of the day. This is where you get other work done, have profound thoughts or meet people.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Mastery of one skill will carry over to another realm. It doesn't mean you will automatically understand without having to learn, but you'll definitely have an advantage and quickly skip to the fun parts.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There are some things worth giving up easily. If you know you're going to give them up anyway, why fight it? Do it early and with grace. Do it with a smile, and then turn and walk like it's your job to make them wonder in your wake.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Preconceived notions are the riches of a know-it-all. They see knowledge as a currency, when it's usually better used as a tool or even as an obstacle to overcome. Having zero knowledge makes it easier to see what is.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Seek support from many resources. Go wide in your search for comfort and joy. To rely solely on any one relationship, ritual or activity for solace all but guarantees the opposite. Your challenges are complex and so should your support systems be.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The very circumstance that used to irritate you will no longer phase you at all. It's not only a sign of maturity and emotional progress; it's also an indication that you're on to bigger and more fulfilling challenges.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You learn by doing, and so it is with the people you'll teach today. It will take too long to explain the action, but people will catch on quick if you demonstrate and then give them the wheel and a little assistance.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It's funny because the thing you spend the most time on isn't what's giving you the biggest result. The source of your joy and good fortune will be something you do for only a few moments. Does noticing this make you want to do some restructuring?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Denial can be part of the learning process. It is normal to reject information until you're ready for it or until it is presented in the right dosage for you. Onslaughts of information can be floods that gather quickly and move dangerously.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your best mindset for today's challenge will be open. Ask questions and remain flexible instead of straining the evidence through the stringent confines of belief. Intolerance constricts; acceptance invites vitality.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). One of the wonderful things about having made mistakes in your life is that you have increased compassion for the messiness of others. You're also a resource for guidance, though you're also wise enough not to offer it until asked.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). People sense the way you view them. As you see their talents and admire the best in them, of course they want to be around you. Some will come to depend on you for an ego boost and the position this puts you in is not so bad at all!

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 18). You'll accomplish what you set out to do but in such record time that you'll have to set higher goals just to amuse yourself. Investments invigorate your creativity, giving you more options and connections. More highlights: raising extraordinary cuteness, checking off two adventures and a surprise delivery that will be part of your world for years to come. Aries and Aquarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 10, 3, 13 and 41.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: When the dust settled on a recent Hollywood bidding war, Netflix won a deal for a new series co-created and starring the mega-talented Taurus Tina Fey. With sun, Mercury and Saturn all in the steadfast sign of the bull, the first female head writer at "Saturday Night Live" can be counted on to seize multiple opportunities at once and see them all through to hilarious effect.
