Your daily horoscope

  • By Holiday Mathis

You'll be heard shortly after someone wants to listen. The trick is in enticing that want. You can't force it. No one can be forced to want. There's an art to this, and Mercury gliding through Libra highlights the nuances, helping us all get a little better at noticing and inspiring the needs and wants of others.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It will feel as though you are waiting an awfully long time for what is already supposed to be yours. The sweetest rewards are often the ones that take the longest to be delivered.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). This is no time to start doing what you're told. Consider it, yes, but don't follow the directive blindly just because it seems to be coming from the top.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You will cast your vote in some way, probably with your money. Before you put in your figurative two cents (which actually costs thousands of cents), think of what you're voting against, too.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Usually your mischief is spontaneous, but tonight it will benefit you to commit some premeditated misbehavior. In a weird way, it will show that you care.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Impossibilities, quite simply, are not so. Strike that word from your vocabulary today, and instead hold your mind open to more options than the average logical Joe might consider.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your environment will only feel as comfortable as the people in it. Those shopping for a new place to live should ask about the neighbors before putting down a deposit.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Doing what you like seems like a luxury now, as there is so much expected of you. Of course, maybe all this work is keeping you out of trouble and making you more useful than you intended to be.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It will feel as though you are in a race. Keep in mind that the one who accomplishes something first often doesn't get it right. Take the time to be thorough and test out your theories before presenting them.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The thing (or person) you depend on may not be available, which will inspire you to find new solutions to the problem or, better yet, decide that it never was a problem to begin with.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Memories will be dredged up — bad ones, good ones and those that are best left uncategorized.

Nod to the past as you would a passing acquaintance — "I see you" — and then move on.

AQUARIUS (Jan.

20-Feb. 18). The mistakes show you what you need to work on. They give you direction and purpose. So don't be afraid to make a few today. Without them, life will feel rudderless.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The prize will be yours, but not magically so. You'll have to work harder for it than you wanted to, but you're better for the work. In fact, in some way the work will save you.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 2). It will be a happy year, mostly because people will teach you about what's good in you. Knowing your best qualities will lead you to show them off in a big-time showcase in the new year. November will feel like a dream world. New characters will sparkle up your life in February. There's an important legal document to sign in March. By no means should you compromise in April — ask for everything, and you'll likely get it! Aquarius and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 24, 39, 4 and 16.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "My friends seem to be able to take dating a lot less seriously than I do. They don't get so crushed with the changes. If I spend three weeks seeing a person and then it doesn't work out in the end, I'm devastated for six weeks. What do I do about my horrible heart-breaky heart? It's SO fragile, I don't know what to do." — Cancer with Intense Feelings

Maybe intellectually you realize that none of it is personal — it's either a good match or a wonky one, or it's a good one for a time. Sensing when the time is over is kind of like sensing when the party is over. Is it over? Tell that to your heart, and it will answer you with nothing but thumping. Your heart is more detached than you give it credit for.

Wait, then, is this really about your heart? The ego seems like a part of it, if only in a sneaky way. Apply even more detachment. The love equation gets remarkably simple when you take your ego out of it to bear witness to the goings-on.

The good news is that every time you experience heartbreak, your heart gets a little bit stronger. Scar tissue is tough tissue.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Happy birthday to Virgo actress, director and producer Salma Hayek, who will star in "The Prophet," an animated film based on Kahlil Gibran's beloved work. "The timeless in you is aware of life's timelessness. And knows that yesterday is but today's memory and tomorrow is today's dream." — Kahlil Gibran
