Horoscopes by Holiday

By Holiday Mathis

The world is full of unfinished business. There's no shortage of it. No one needs more. There's a new moon coming to start a fresh cycle. Special luck goes to the finishers, the graduates and the deal closers. Forget about the fine brushwork. It doesn't have to be good; it just has to be finished.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Push on with the herculean effort. You'll go faster and you'll finish stronger if you allow things to be stupendously imperfect, at least for now. You can always go back later and clean it up.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Stand behind your decisions. There is no room for doubt, no reason to change things up, no need to quickly come up with something new. Hold your head up high, and deliver what you created.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You're the power in your life. No one is going to charge your battery; you have to do it yourself. One thing, though: Avoid the charging station that worked last time. Diversify. Spread out. Find one in a different part of town.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Partnerships will need to be hashed out verbally. Stay on track, especially if you have a less-than-pleasant history with someone. Don't let the issue switch from the original subject to one of personal rivalry.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). One study suggests that a typical college student will pull two all-nighters per school year, resulting in better academic performance for only a meager fraction of students. As for you, early-to-bed will bring no regrets.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). In the past you developed this whole style of coping that worked so well you're still using a lot of it today. The question is: Is this still necessary, or does it unreasonably limit you?

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Sometimes you give compliments because you're nice and you like to make people feel good. Today you're a little more calculating, though, and your compliments are aimed at getting someone to lower his or her defenses.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If you have to talk about your problem, do it in personal terms, describing how it affects your life and expressing all of the feelings that come up around it. There's strength in honest vulnerability.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). As you get older you care less and less about being liked. However, there's nothing to gain from behaving in an unlikeable fashion. Today, the more they like you, the better your position will be.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There's a tall order with your name on it. With the right attitude you'll finish the job before Friday. Avoid negative thinkers, and rewire your own thought processes. Relentless optimism is called for.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). What you're trying to do is no small feat. This is going to take time and persistence. Today will be majorly productive if you put your critical mind aside.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The difference between dishing the dirt and mudslinging is only a few drops of water. This is an excellent time to stay away from gossip altogether. The thrills are cheap, and the damage is costly.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 31). Fun and happiness are more important than you've been making them lately. A positive attitude is the key to keeping your stress levels low and your sprits high through this entire solar year. Next month you'll have something everyone needs, and you'll be paid very well for this. July and October bring love in abundance. Libra and Cancer adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 15, 39, 44 and 18.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "I am going through some major, overwhelming changes. My husband relocated to another state for work, and I will give my two-week notice shortly. I just feel that I am not going to find work where my husband is. I was born April 10, 1975. What do you see happening?"

As Uranus leans on your natal Neptune, the events of your life upset your previous ideas about your ideal reality. The vision you once had no longer seems to apply — or excite you, for that matter. How do you change the vision without giving up on your dreams? The answer is to relax and focus on what is going right at any given moment. With four luminaries in Aries, the sign of beginners' luck, you needn't fear change. It's very positive for you to move every few years and you'll usually find that such a move invigorates every aspect of your life. Your Venus in stable Taurus says that when you're in uncharted territory, your love relationship will be your rock. You can't go wrong making your love relationship your priority. I believe that you will find work, and it will be even better and more enriching in many ways than the work you're doing now.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Brooke Shields has been in the limelight practically her whole life. A preponderance of Gemini energy in her chart (sun, moon, Venus and Jupiter) shows that she's versatile and willing to change with the times, which is probably how she was able to bridge the gap between child star to household name. Look for Shields in the upcoming drama "Daisy Winters."
