Horoscopes by Holiday

Happy birthday. You'll do the seemingly impossible and win hearts along the way. You'll be modest but powerful, knowledgeable but open minded, and generous though you can't seem to give anything away without new rewards being heaped on you. More highlights: legendary adventures, family additions and a property acquisition.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Those seeking your friendship must realize that treating you well is vital. Your attention is earned by those who go beyond the standard. You knock yourself out for your people and will thrive among the equally generous.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): They say "no news is good news," though there's really no such thing as "no news." Silence only means the news is someone else's. You will involve yourself in lively circles of action and relevant, interesting communication.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21): Something's amiss. Like a detective with a magnifying glass, you'll search for the clues. Then you'll put together a theory, solve the mystery and consider the next steps so justice can be done.

CANCER (June 22-July 22): Even when the wind isn't blowing in your preferred direction, you're still the master of your ship. This will be a roundabout route, but when you finally reach your destination, you'll be better for it.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): To listen to someone's needs and explain what you need too is the sort of effective communication that opens up so many avenues.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You seek greater acceptance of yourself and a better understanding of your internal world. Though you can't always change your mindset at will, you're working on it and are more self-directed than before.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Doing your best for yourself helps everyone. Raising one person always affects others, and you're the one you can most profoundly influence.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Your power is not the sort where you snap your fingers and command the universe to do your bidding. Yours is the power to connect with people's hearts.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You'll be considered for a role that's an excellent opportunity. Though it's a natural fit, you will still benefit from making an effort, and perhaps seeking guidance as to how to best present yourself. Preparation will determine success.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You haven't always been honored and supported, but this has not made you jaded. If anything, you're more compassionate than those who don't know any better. You respond to others as you would have loved to have been responded to.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Even experiences you do not enjoy can be used to strengthen your work. Identify a misunderstanding. Hold it up to the light. Once you see things for what they are, solutions are obvious.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Constructive criticism is wonderful because without it you'd be stuck at the same level for far longer than you care to stay. You're eager to learn and develop, so you accept feedback with grace and gratitude.
