Horoscopes By Holiday

Familiarity is the enemy of glamour. It’s why fashion changes each season. It’s why there’s always something coming up to replace the old phrases, songs and dances that were working just fine. Even if you’re not into glamour per se, fresh excitement in some form is still undeniably a necessity of the human spirit — so sayeth Venus in Aquarius.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Watch out for laziness in others, and be vigilant against the tendency yourself. As the ancient wisdom suggests, ”He who is lazy in his work is brother to him that destroys.”

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It’s time to travel light, both metaphorically and literally. Why carry more than is necessary? Leave past pain and future worries out of the satchel. Take only what you’ll need this hour.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Did you know that over half of college graduates don’t wind up in the field of their major? Relatedly, today you will not apply what you’ve learned in a direct and logical fashion. You’re still better for having learned it, though!

CANCER (June 22-July 22). To handle the current problem, you will need more data about it. You’ll also need a few different tools and resources. Gather information, and look for people who have already solved this or something similar.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It’s not too late. It’s never too late. If you knew with every fiber of your being that this was the truth, what would you do now? That’s the best way to spend your day.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Getting out of yourself will be the biggest challenge. One way to settle in more comfortably (which is the first step) will be to turn your focus to the environment and become curious about the people in it and all that’s going on there.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Seductive and glamorous propositions abound. Before you head further into this, find out more from trusted sources. Ignorance, like darkness, is a lack of illumination that can cause some pretty serious stumbles.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). What if you knew that trying to make something better was as absurd as trying to perfect the sea or improve upon the sunlight? Maybe this isn’t about changing so much as it’s about learning the magnificence of a thing.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Some use the term ”free spirit” as a put-down akin to ”flaky.” It’s a stance rooted in the fear that, given the entire range of choices, we’d go all wrong. Loosen the reigns on yourself today and you’ll see how untrue this is.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Love will be like talking to the moon. The light inside you will be quietly, constantly reflected. You’ll feel at once big enough to hold the vastness of space in your palm and small enough to be enveloped in it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Any harm that is done in the name of believing the wrong thing can be undone in the name of believing the right thing. Go back and examine the beliefs that led to the discontent. One or more of them is faulty. Root it out.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The message can be the most eloquent, reasonable and perfectly crafted expression in the world, but if it is pitched to a non-receptive person it’s still a communication fail.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 17). If there’s one thing that will make this solar return a sweet dream for you, it’s good timing. Don’t rush! Life only happens one moment at a time and trying to cram in too much will rob you of the delicious experience. Stick to your top wish. Prioritize and hold it sacred and you will succeed beyond your wildest imaginings. Leo and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 22, 23,14 and 38.
