Horoscopes by Holiday

By: Holiday Mathis

A swollen Capricorn lunar luminary careens toward tomorrow's eclipse. This is a mogul's moon bringing luck for all kinds of business, but especially the kind geared to strengthen bonds at home. And given the lunar opposition to Venus, it's likely that practical solutions are exactly the answer to certain emotional needs.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). When the negative outweighs the positive, don't let it slide. Keep track. It will help you decide if, when and how to make a change. One day's tally won't be a sizeable enough sample to work from, but it's a start.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If you know what people want, it's easy to please them. But pleasing people isn't the same as helping them. In order to truly help, you have to go beyond what people want and give them instead what they need.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It's not what you do so much as how you do it that matters today — well, every day really. But you'll notice this more with the current emotional fluidity you're experiencing.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You'll need to be somewhat stern with yourself as you keep yourself on track with projections and goals. Put a hard shell around you to deflect the word "no" and keep on going until you get to "yes."

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your acoustic environment can add or subtract quite a few points from the score that is your overall quality of life. It's worth spending energy on, whether in acts of soundproofing, building playlists or other sorts of audio-soothing.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your plans will be expedited just as soon as you get that piece of training you've been missing. Ask around because the perfect teacher is only one connection away.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Bonds that were built in times of difficulty and trouble will get tested under happier circumstances. They'll probably prove strong, but you might be surprised how tricky it is to relate in a lighter atmosphere.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'll notice how your whole demeanor and energy improves when you get around that attentive person who listens and laughs with you. This sort of high-quality interaction doesn't need to be such a rarity.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You said you'd do it, and you will. True, today it's still undone. Take a step or two, though, and you'll create momentum enough to make quick work of this project.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It's like you're a different person when you signed up to do a thing than you are when it's time to actually deliver. Regardless, you'll be glad for your commitments and all you must do today to keep them.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your heart will suggest your next move to you, booming its impractical request without regard to the sort of details that will have to come together to make it happen. After all, that's someone else's department.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Relationships exist in a state of flux. Any move made by any involved will change the balance. In order to stabilize, and let the relationship find its natural equilibrium, both have to settle in for a minute, making no new moves at all.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 15). Your cosmic birthday present will be an always welcome one — money from out of the blue that you can use to accomplish any number of things, including enjoying loved ones in a new setting, helping a friend and/or investing in your business or education. Extremely lucky meetings happen in August and November. Aries and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 49, 2, 18, 44 and 8.

OPPOSITION MADNESS: This is the part where the sign-by-sign series on intuition is interrupted by a cosmic public service announcement regarding the prevalence of oppositions in this week's astral lineup. First, it's the sun and Pluto, followed by Venus and Saturn, the moon and Mars, and later Venus and Pluto.

An opposition happens when two luminaries are 180 mathematical degrees apart from one another on an astrological chart. Astrologers believe that the opposition is perhaps the most powerful astrological aspect after the conjunction. Think of two children on a see-saw. They're as far apart from each other as they can possibly be, and yet they share a common center. Planets in opposition have contradictory agendas, yet there is still the possibility of finding balance in the middle. We on Earth may experience conflict and confusing push-pull feelings during oppositions. Opposites do attract, though sometimes one needs to call in a mediator to settle disputes. Remember that even as we oppose one another, we are using each other as a balance. Without this configuration, no one would get to rise or fall, so there would be no ride. Vive la difference!

CELEBRITY PROFILES: As the founder and CEO of Thrive Global, co-founder of The Huffington Post and author of 15 books Arianna Huffington is known for having strong opinions and sharing them widely. Huffington's birth chart is unusual as her sun, moon, Mercury and Uranus are all nestled in Cancer, suggesting a highly intuitive, soulful and nurturing personality. Venus in Gemini brings the sharp wit and sociability.
