Holiday Mathis

Like a blink, a thought can be involuntary or voluntary. You can decide what to think. The thoughts of the world will still drift like clouds through the sky of your mind while you willfully pay attention to your own agenda. Another way, encouraged by a trine of the sun and Neptune, is to picture the future and let thoughts fall in line with that vision.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 10). No one works harder or produces more than you. Your work ethic has been a source of pride and luck. This year, it’s changing. You’ll still deliver consistently, but tremendously excellent fortune befalls you as you focus on the feelings you generate and what you create, and as you make sure you’re doing what matters. Gemini and Capricorn adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 25, 3, 33, 48 and 1.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Pushing all the right buttons may make the thing go, but life is about more than effectiveness. The wins will happen beyond the bounds of the mechanical. Personality doesn’t just count; it overshadows the rest.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When you’re used to having a person’s full attention, it’s a little jarring to suddenly have to share it. Of course you understand that others have a life outside of knowing you, but there are times when the realization is more jarring.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Don’t settle for whatever mood befalls the environment. Take charge. Set the emotional temperature. You know how to do this. Sometimes you just forget to command that talent.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Doing the same thing repeatedly can make you masterful, but it’s a process. Dips happen. In the lows it may seem that the role has lost its luster. Reinvigorate. Seek inspiration. Or just take a break.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Just when you think you’ve seen it all, you’ll be delighted by what falls into your field of vision. This happens more to you than to others because you’re paying such close attention.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). This thing going on in your life right now is really precious, but it’s not announcing itself as such. If it were condensed in a movie scene, it would happen in one beautiful, breathtaking moment.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Though the cosmic backdrop is complicated, so are you, and something felicitous is likely to form out of the unique chemistry of this day. You’ll magnetize a new friend.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Discomfort is a requirement of growth. When a pursuit is extremely attractive, the discomfort is less noticeable. You move through it unthinkingly as the goal draws you ever nearer.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Financial debts are the easiest kind to figure out. It’s the emotional and karmic tabulations that can seem like impossible math to solve. It’s about to get a whole lot easier on you, though. A debt will be forgiven.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When you love someone, you figure out ways to help, support and maybe, once in a while, dazzle that person. The last effort takes the sort of planning that is favored for you today.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ve an interest that could be retired. Were you to decide to go in this direction, a clutter of material possessions would go, too. Paring down will liberate new energy.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Even the simplest action is executed through a multistep process. Instinct kicks in first, uncontrollably so. Next is thought. Some thoughts are also uncontrollable, but most can be managed when you assert yourself.
