Your daily horoscope

  • By Holiday Mathis

As civilized and well mannered as you may be, the fact remains that if you are reading this, you're probably that soft, warm-blooded, highly adaptable and sharply instinctive animal called "human." The wild Sagittarius sun and the intense Scorpio moon machinate with unexpectedly emotional results. Chalk it up to human nature.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). When plans snag, you might wonder whether your intuition is off. It's not. Believe it or not, the snag is for the best. Eventually, all will work out in an unexpected and fortuitous way.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You don't need to measure up to anyone else's standards, only your own. It will be good luck to listen to the person who is, for some reason, often ignored.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If there's a better way to make money, you're likely to notice it today. That person performing a task you find fascinating is doing the thing that you could be doing and being paid well for it, too! Investigate.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Those ideas about wrong and right may look good on paper, but they play out in such nuanced and complicated ways that in the end the moral stance doesn't settle so neatly.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Start the conversation. Whether or not things take off, you'll be glad you took the initiative, if only for the education of it. Saying interesting things isn't necessary. The point is just to get the other person talking. It's about rapport.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). In recent days, your heart song has been a hummable, pleasant melody. Today it has operatic force. The affection you feel is a gift, whether or not you choose to do anything about it.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). People will communicate to you messages that you already knew but maybe weren't supposed to. Regardless of how good of an actor you are, your kindness will not allow you to deflate anyone's ego.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You're inclined to share freely all that you've learned, but first consider where your parents are coming from. Some people aren't ready for your knowledge, and it will be wasted on them.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Make a resolution for yourself and stick to it. This will be good practice for New Year's. Even if you stick to it for only a day, you'll be building your "stick to it" muscles.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The older folks will do the "these kids today" talk, and the younger ones will feel annoyed, but not as annoyed as a middle group who realize that the minute they say "these kids today," they are not among them.


18). It's been said that just because you own a hammer doesn't mean you can build a house. However, you're a lot closer to being able to build one than the person who doesn't own a hammer. Have faith and get more tools.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Most people don't like to feel controlled, and the strong-willed creative types absolutely hate it. Anyone trying to impose a view or a timeline on you will automatically go on your "watch list."

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 18). Are you ready to be adored? Your January makeover puts stars in someone's eyes. If friends take paths you don't understand, your independence will be empowering. In February, buy and sell what's needed to make a better living. May brings family events and important new connections. Cancer and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 5, 44, 16 and 32.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "My boyfriend is a Pisces, and I'm a Scorpio. Are these signs a good match? I want to know whether I'll get married again. Thank you."

Yes! Pisces and Scorpio are both water signs, which indicates deep emotions, soulfulness, empathy and a profound need and ability to connect with others. Where these two can miss is in dealing practically in real-world problems. You can't live on love alone. Make friends and advisers out of earth signs who can keep you two grounded and on track. Earth signs are Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.

"When I'm with co-workers or talking to the boss, I get super-nervous. Either I shake, drop things or lose my train of thought. Will I ever get better? (6/30/49)"

With so many Cancer influences in your chart, you're hyperaware of your surroundings and the moods of others. Uranus conjunct with your sun makes you somewhat of an eccentric thinker, and therefore your solutions on the job are brilliant — just not the norm. Being afraid you won't fit in could be the main problem. Learn to celebrate your uniqueness, and this problem goes away. A career coach, counselor, hypnotist or improvisation class will help.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Australian pop star Sia Furler has become an international hit-factory with her own chart toppers and songs she penned for Beyonce, Rihanna, David Guetta and more. Famously private, Furler has been known to cast others in her videos and perform with her back to the audience. The Sagittarian powerhouse singer has Venus and Uranus in private Scorpio.
