Horoscopes by Holiday

By: Holiday Mathis

Getting a message across will be of the upmost importance. If you communicate thoroughly, explain carefully and clearly state what's implied, those who wouldn't have understood otherwise will get it while those who understood all too well will get bored. The social Gemini moon suggests: Read the room. Cater the message to the audience.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're ready to let old things go — mostly having to do with unwanted possessions. But some stale emotional content will go, too, as though such things are invisibly tethered to the physical items, and maybe they are.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Though following another person's path will teach you the way, eventually you'll either take it over and claim it as your own or venture off, claiming a new path. Ultimately, you're most powerful when it's your path.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your parents have defined you in a certain way. Your friends have in another way. Even your pet defines you as "disperser of food and treats." The only definition that matters? Your own. Let it grow and change. Keep tweaking it.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). People will go very far to give off the appearance of control, especially if they actually do not have as much of it as they would like. Someone is trying a little too hard. Now why do you think that is?

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). This day is tinged in drama that may include tantrums and general bad behavior, the likes of which would be easy to categorically reject, though there's also wisdom to be gained if you look a little further into cause and motivation.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It may seem like a few errands eat up the whole day. Furthermore, this doesn't fit the image you have of how you'd prefer to spend your hours today.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There's one area in which you're really quite stuck. It's time to get creative about the problem. Start by tackling a smaller part of the issue and shrinking your standard for what counts as progress.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You can do the thing alone but it's going to take you so long and be so arduous that by the time you finish, your attitude will have soured. So include people. Enlist help.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Everyone's got their own insecurities, fears, secrets... whatever it is, you're definitely not the first, last or only person to deal with it. You might not be in the mood to share, but to do so would cut your suffering in half.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You think you know what you're good at, but put it to the test anyway. You might be surprised how things have shifted since you last looked. The more accurate you can be in your assessment, the faster you'll learn.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You may not want the extra pressure of being the leader, but if you don't share your vision and ideas, everyone will suffer, most of all you. Don't hoard your talents.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Everyone in the group has a different role. You feel that someone isn't pulling a fair share of the weight, and this may be true, but all do not have to be contributing the same amount for this to work extremely well.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 17). The fun of taking part in interesting and beautiful projects kicks off a glamorous period of time. Then, just when you start to wonder if anyone is seeing the real you, you'll get an opportunity to put function over form and prove what you're all about with the difference you make in the world. April brings a windfall. Leo and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 1, 14, 40, 33 and 20.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "An astrologer told me that when I was born, Venus was retrograde. That explains why my love life is so backward! I seem to have the worst timing with relationships, always wanting someone when they have no interest in me or are dating someone else. Then what usually happens is that things will turn around and by the time they do, I'm the one who is no longer interested. Will my love karma ever change? I'm an Aquarius."

Well, you're in luck. Venus goes retrograde March 6 through April 17, which will be your perfect opportunity to improve your love life. Consider that this issue of timing might just be an ingenious plan you've created for yourself in order to stay gloriously unattached. Admit it, sometimes the idea of love is enormously appealing to you while the actuality of getting into a relationship is by comparison messy, uncomfortable, risky and disruptive. To change your love karma, you must agree to face your fear and give up staying in control of your feelings in favor of going along for the journey of love. A Scorpio, Cancer or Pisces might be the perfect partner in this romantic experiment!

CELEBRITY PROFILES: The highly accomplished lawyer, scholar and wife of the 44th president of the United States describes herself first and foremost as Malia and Sasha's mom. Former first lady Michelle Obama was born when the Sun and Mercury were in the highly traditional sign of Capricorn. Her natal moon, Mars and Saturn are in Aquarius, the sign of philanthropy, humanitarianism, technology and the future.
