Horoscopes By Holiday

On this planet of standard gravity, to rise above a thing isn’t so easy. It usually involves a climb, or a ride on something high-powered or lighter than the air. The sun bursting into creative Leo would like to suggest the vehicle of imagination as an option. Send your mind high above you into the realm of visions and the rest of you will follow.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Just when you think you understand exactly who you are, you surprise yourself. It’s an opportunity to look to your deeper motivations and love yourself even more. Nothing needs fixing, only understanding.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ve seen it, lived it, paid the cost and yet you’re still learning the lesson: Wanting is risk. The ramp of expectation either leads to happiness or a fall. Keep making adjustments.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). This is an excellent time to remember that people have different rules. Just because someone is your friend doesn’t mean you automatically know what you should expect from the relationship.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). New responsibilities will be laid at your feet. Just remember that you always have the option to say no, even when you’re dealing with friends and family.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The same symbols that mean so much to one person may be completely devoid of significance to another, to the point that the object isn’t even recognized as a symbol at all. Go forward with respect and you should be fine.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Happiness is when you can’t tell the difference between work and play. Those certain people who consistently bring buoyancy to your mood and point of view will help in this regard.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Whether you, ignore, deny, numb, express or embrace it, you have your relentless yearning for love to thank for some of your greatest accomplishments. The constant craving has you moving ever forward.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). As a member of the natural world, one of the instincts that comes with the package is an instinct for recognizing when things are ripe. So don’t overthink it. If the opportunity seems sweet and ready, pluck it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your mood impacts the moods of others. Making yourself happy helps all. And because making other people smile is part of your happiness equation, everyone wins several times over today.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Honesty gives relationships the best chance at success. It is much easier to be honest early on than it is to sort through the expectations that build up the longer people know one another.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There are experts all around ready to give advice at the slightest provocation. It’s still more fun to figure it out on your own though. Try that way first, and you’ll delight yourself with creativity you weren’t expecting.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Things improve up to a point, and after that they degenerate. This is the natural order. You’ll enjoy working on a project, bringing it as far as it can go, and then gracefully moving on.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 22). This trip around the sun features you running with a panoply of characters who bring out the best in you, some of them by virtue of support, friendship and love, others through a sense of competition or even direct opposition. You’ll relish the confidence born of becoming a stronger and richer person. Virgo and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 18, 22, 28, 1 and 49.
