SUNDAY, SEPT. 20
By HOLIDAY MATHIS
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 20). You’ll break a karmic chain and favorably alter the future for generations. This is not done in one crucial moment but rather through small daily decisions that cement a way of being. A strange trade opens financial resources to you. The relationship sector is positively ripe with sweetness, love and laughter. Leo and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 33, 7, 14 and 1.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). At the root of a predicament is a motive. To understand how the predicament came to be, you must understand the motive. Today, the answers will defy logic. Today, the answers will be hidden in a heart.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Hesitation, reticence, dread, anxiety — these are all messages sent from one part of yourself to another. Listen and heed the call. It will help you steer away from the rocks and into deeper waters and calmer situations.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Who is in control? If you know this, you will begin to know how best to work the situation and possibly turn it to your advantage. If you misunderstand this, the consequences will teach you where you went wrong.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Love doesn’t solve every problem. For instance, you can’t eat it, nor can you rely on it to make two lives jive together in perfect sync. Love is a crucial ingredient in the recipe, but it’s not the only ingredient.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The one who makes the first move is always more vulnerable — to rejection, judgment, errors and more. That’s what makes the first move a power move. The advantages are commensurate with the risk.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll be the mouthpiece for the group, but first you’ll be its ears. You’ll gather the info and then present it, putting minds at ease and settling expectations into just the snug spot where they’re most likely to be met.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Saying “we should get together” almost never winds up as a plan. It’s almost as though people who say it don’t want to actually see one another. You’ll have luck extending a specific invitation.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’re in a position to give exactly what was asked for, and it’s a good thing because, in this matter, close will not be good enough. Before you deliver, check and double-check your work.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). People close to you know which of your buttons to push and how hard. You have the power to rewire the inner circuitry however you like. They’ll get pressed, and what happens next is up to you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ve received so many unexpected benefits from an endeavor that what you were originally trying to accomplish doesn’t even seem that important anymore. Still … it’s time to get back to it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Some people seem like they want to be in a relationship, but what they really want to be is served. When you stop providing what’s being explicitly or implicitly asked of you, what happens?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Circumstances remain the same, but their significance to you changes. Because of this, you’ll process your environment differently and experience a deep sense of calm.
MONDAY, SEPT. 21

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 21). Some things in your life have taken longer than you thought they would, and this solar return brings a succession of events and rewards that have been a long time coming. Your chance at a position comes up in October, and there’s another key turning point in January that will secure it further. Capricorn and Cancer adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 40, 31, 37 and 17.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). In foreign environments, exercise the highest judgment. It will be better to err on the side of caution and restraint, especially when it comes to showing respect.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Perhaps you can’t help those impulsive or habitual moves, but the ones you have to think about — think about them a little longer. Watch; study; and contemplate. There is no need for impulsive action.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll think about things deeply, broadly, wildly. But are you overthinking it? You’ll know by how you feel. If things just keep getting more interesting to you, ride the bright streak. If thoughts make you anxious, jump off.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). So much has changed, and you can’t always choose whom to do things with. Being with your preferred company is a luxury. Today, you’ll be just as comfortable alone as you are with others.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Do not hesitate to follow your intuitive leaning, as it’s helping you be first to the party, an early adopter of technology and ideas, or just generally head of the line.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You, like all the other humans, have a limited amount of emotional energy to expend, and you want to place it purposefully where it will mean something. It’s a waste to get angry with television, traffic or other daily minutia.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Maybe you don’t want to create an uncomfortable situation, but if you were to do that anyway, you could handle it. And then, at least everyone’s feelings would be out in the open.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’re so good at appreciating and accepting people from different walks of life. One reason you find it easier than most is that you’re sincerely curious, and your desire to learn opens your heart.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your work is not you. It’s something you do. Even your body is not you. It’s something you live inside. You grow in power as you identify less with these things and more with who you really are inside.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll get good information, the type that compels you to keep an open mind because you sense that even though you don’t prefer what you hear, understanding it will change you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Everyone needs some degree of validation and attention. There are those who need so much of it, though, that you’ll be inclined to hold back. The more you hold back, the more they’ll need it — a vicious cycle.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Today’s problem is like a tangled necklace pulled from the jewelry box. As you try to pick it apart, you can’t help but wonder how things got this way just sitting under a lid. It’s amazing what happens in hiding places.
