Horoscopes By Holiday
Mars and Neptune form a magic triangular window in the sky that serves as a cosmic invitation to the muses to generously grace us with inspiration and increased creative powers. Tasks that require inventive thinking will go exceptionally well. Any and all parts of life will be improved with an open-minded, imaginative approach.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You don’t have to be the cause of an event to feel that you’re the one to do something about it. If all you do is hope for the best, you will be doing more than most. Of course, you’ll take bigger action than that. It’s who you are.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You have plenty that you can leverage into plenty more. It’s all how you play it. Step back and assess where you are. Talk to outsiders about it — people who see you more objectively than you can.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When you act to please people, the opposite will happen — not always, just today. See, it’s really supposed to be your turn. So take care of your own needs, and pursue what delights you. People will like you all the more for it.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Narrow your focus. If you go too broad, people will have no idea how to relate to you, where to hook in or what to do with you. Home in on the one thing you want that people can support you in now. You’ll make friends.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There are things that should be discussed, and a lot that shouldn’t. Discretion will be the better part of diplomacy. The proverb states, ”Even a fish wouldn’t get into trouble if it kept its mouth shut.”
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Common sense isn’t always common practice. If anyone can get in there and improve the ratio of logical action to nonsense, it’s you. Bonus: You have a nice way of getting people to see it your way.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll spend time in planning mode and in living mode too. You’re doing this right. When in planning mode, you think of the long term and the distant results. But when you’re in living mode, you seize each hour like it’s the last.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A key secret to love, war and life in general: Know when to get out. Everything has its cycle. Leave the party when the going is good and you’ll have the right energy for what’s next.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Positive leaders and influences will help get your mind off of nagging issues that can’t be changed. They’ll inspire you instead to start dealing with things that can be changed: There’s so much to work with in that realm.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The more you care about others the more they care about you. Respect is the same. You’ve a healthy amount of it flowing through your world now to command and to give.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It’s as though your purpose clears a path for you. Once you know why you’re doing a thing, you can figure out how to do it much more easily. Also, you can understand, see and tolerate things better.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The quarrelsome people tend to find each other — or rather, they bring it out in each other. Avoid them altogether, because they’ll be especially difficult, and there’s no sense in messing up the perfect peace available to you today.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 28). Discuss how you feel, because that will tell people more about you than any fact you could share. Why do you want them to know? The better they know you, the better they can help you or allow you to help them. Your relationships are your gold. The connections you make will bring you your heart’s desire. Scorpio and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 22, 31, 25 and 5.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: ”My friend, who is a Leo, gave me her trust. And I betrayed her and got involved. She says she forgives me, but how am I really supposed to know if I will ever have her trust again? I am truly sorry for what I did, but she may not forgive me. I am a Libra.”
All good friendships go through rough patches. Loyalty is huge with Leo, the royal lion of the jungle, just as it would be with any leader type. And Leos are such effusive friends that when they start giving you a normal amount of attention, it seems like they don’t even like you. Though the bright affection she’s so generously heaped on you throughout your friendship has temporarily dimmed, try not to think of this as the cold shoulder. Time will put distance between events, and she’ll likely return to the jubilant kind of affection that comes naturally to her. One thing you can do, which you Libras do so well, and Leos adore, is spoil her a little. Pick up lunch, concert tickets, coffee, flowers… you’ll hasten the process of forgiving and feel better about yourself as a friend, too.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Capricorn R&B superstar John Legend started his career collaborating with chart-topping artists and soon went straight to the top himself with the No. 1 single ”All of Me.” Legend’s moon and Mercury, both in Sagittarius, show a worldly point of view and a love of travel, culture and all kinds of exploration. The lucky planet, Jupiter, is in Leo for Legend, which says that performing gives him energy and good fortune.
