Horoscopes by Holiday

By Holiday Mathis

As for the thoughts that are causing us pain, there are three prevalent psychological models to consider. You could root out the history of the thought. You could question the validity of the thought. Or you could determine the thought erroneous and useless then ignore it until it goes away. The Gemini moon favors the last choice.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It's said that nothing worth having comes easily. Of course that's not true. People luck into easy, worthwhile things all the time. Wise people know to appreciate such good fortune. You'll be such a person today.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If you're disappointed in the actions of those around you, just know that their perceptions are very different from yours. They are only acting on what they know. Perhaps you can educate them.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your mojo comes and your mojo goes. You can ingratiate that special charisma to stick around with you, but you can't totally control it. Be your own best friend regardless of how popular you seem to be at the minute.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You'll enjoy working on your personal style. It could mean adding new words to your lexicon, spiffing up your wardrobe or getting your domestic life running in a more organized and/or elegant way.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). One of your talents is dealing deftly with people who others find difficult. You've a way of bringing out the best in others, perhaps because you really see something to love in practically everyone.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Once you know that you're perfectly fine on your own, you can enjoy circumstances for what they truly are instead of using any pursuit or person as a means of escape.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It's time to break a certain pattern that once served you well and has since gotten stale. This most likely involves another person. The interruption will add energy to your day, peace to your night.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Today, people will take your lead about what to think about you. When you feel great about who you are and what's going down, they'll accept it without question.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The one who is flirting with you may have ulterior motives, but those reasons are likely not the only reason for the extra attention. You are, after all, fun to flirt with!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Many relationships don't start off with a lot of reciprocity. It may take a while for the mutual feelings to start flowing. One-sided interest is perfectly acceptable for a while until a solid dynamic starts to take form.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If today were a slot machine it would be coming up all sevens: only, the payout isn't in coins; it's in fortuitous connections. Seize the opportunities. This type of luck doesn't come along very often.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). One thought leads to the next and the next. It's a mental chain that you'd do well to break. No one else is bringing up your past mistakes, so you should let them go, too. Distract yourself with adventurous fun.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 29). Far-fetched dreams will come true this year. What happens over the next 10 weeks turns you into the boss or another kind of powerful figure. Use your talent for sensing people's strengths, and assign tasks accordingly. You'll like the turn your personal life takes in June. August will bless your family. Capricorn and Aquarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 19, 44, 38 and 11.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "I'm a Taurus, and I've met the man of my dreams — a Sagittarius. The only problem is, he doesn't seem as into me as I am into him. He does seem to like me, but the intensity isn't evenly matched. What should I do?"

Stay in control and self-contained. Don't gush or let him know that you've lost your heart to him. Part of love is learning who the other person is and what he needs and accepting that. A Sagittarius man requires lots of unexpected excitement from the girl of his dreams. So don't stay on one note. Taurus gals can be stubborn. Once you realize what works for you, you may try and press that button until the cows (or bulls, as the case may be) come home. But what's working will cease working if it's overdone. Change it up. Be artful. One week you're the supportive cheerleader who calls to rally him. The next week you're the mysterious goddess instead; you Greta Garbo him. Then what's next? Maybe nothing at all. Maybe something thrilling. Only you know. Keep him suspended in wonder.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Jerry Seinfeld has a well-rounded astrological chart with all elements (earth, fire, water and air) represented and balanced. But make no mistake: The king of observational humor is undeniably a Taurus. Taurus rules the material world, and many Taurus people are avid collectors. Seinfeld and fellow Taurus Jay Leno both have extensive automobile collections.
