Weekly stars by Holiday Mathis
This week’s birthdays: You have a strong ability to put your mind over your mood, and this habit keeps you on a winning path. Often your mood will be good, but you realize it needs to be even better in order to take on all you’ve signed up for and do it well. So you become an expert at pepping yourself up to high levels of enthusiasm. There is plenty to be excited about over the next 10 weeks as relationships grow closer and big decisions are made. Your financial picture defies the economy in January.
March 21-April 19
Be aware of nuances, and listen carefully to what people are trying to tell you. Important information could come across in such a tedious manner that you have to pay extra close attention to catch it. Devote your spare moments to making a loved one feel valued. This energy expense comes back to treat you later.
April 20-May 20
Life feels good to you when you take it slow. You don’t interrupt people while their talking, you’re gracious in traffic, and wherever possible you pull back and let others go ahead of you. Not everyone will offer you the same courtesy, but you can be sure that your example makes an impact this season.
May 21 - June 21
Since the rest of the world seems to be moving at a much slower pace than you, it’s prime time to practice waiting patiently. Make a game of it. See how long you can smile kindly at the ones who take forever to do the simplest things. Be gracious. It’s more important than being interesting or funny or attractive.
June 22-July 22
There is so much you need to do for your nearest and dearest (including yourself) that you’re hesitant to involve yourself in the needs of those further from your heart. However, it’s the connections you make outside your usual realm that will be the most meaningful now. You’ll make a profound difference.
July 23 - August 22
Early in the week it’s easy to get discouraged. Huge goals seem unattainable and large obstacles seem insurmountable. However, as the week goes on you find ways to turn your inner strength into outer power. Since you are only as big as you think you are, think of yourself as being super-strong and capable of miracles.
August 23-September 22
There’s something in your personality that people can’t help but fall in love with. You make them want to assist you in whatever way you require. It’s a useful talent this week because you need to have a team in place in order for your plan to work. Thursday, your timing is exquisite and you are lucky in love, too.
September 23 - October 23
Experience has taught you well. You recognize the pattern this week will take, so you’re prepared with all you need to do your work well and enjoy the company of others. From this position you can relax and enjoy the events you have planned, which will be gratifying for all.
October 24 - November 21
Relationships are a dance, and you are an expert dancer. You know how far to exert yourself and when to refrain. You know what to reveal and how to build a mystery. You can risk being more open this week without worrying that others will take you for granted. Be confident in your powers of attraction.
November 22 - December 21
Though you could make your point and motivate others to follow and agree with you, you may decide on a softer approach now. You are more interested in what others have to say than you are eager to push your own agenda. You can see the pleasure and profit that is to be had by playing it low-key.
December 22 - January 19
Your social savvy is put to the test and succeeds. You bring people together in laughter and good will. You understand who you are dealing with and do not confuse your needs for theirs. Through self-sacrifice you gain access to all you want. However, the joy you derive from seeing others happy is enough for you.
January 20 - February 18
You’re always thinking about those who have less than you. You’ll decide that whatever you were striving for is far less important than your contribution to those around you. A friend in crisis requires special handling on Saturday. What you do in the name of love will bring great, though not immediate, reward.
February 19 - March 20
You make ambitious plans because the right people are around to help you pull it all off. Know when to pull back and do nothing. Others need downtime as much as you do and will appreciate your stellar sense of rhythm. A coincidence that happens Friday or Saturday represents a rare opportunity. Snag it!
