Horoscopes by Holiday

Happy birthday (Apr. 15): It's a year of uncanny financial luck. You'll also find new applications for your talent. It's good news because you don't have to change up your scene entirely to get a fresh take on life. Someone finds you magnificently mysterious, then sweetly familiar and every stage of the relationship will be a joy.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): To join a group is to agree, on some level, to become like its members. Group dynamics can have huge influence, sometimes more than an individual's internal process. Learn as much as you can about a group before the first meeting.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Usually the positive forces need amplification, but that doesn't mean shadows don't have their place. Those who live totally in the light cannot see a thing. The darkness gives the contrast needed to define and distinguish the world.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21): Even though no one is the same person at all times, you prefer to be around personalities that cover a predictable range. You'll enjoy the safe comfort of people whose tone consistently harmonizes with your own.

CANCER (June 22-July 22): Though love is work, it somehow gives you energy. And though love takes time, it somehow gives you time too because the moments become memorable and spacious, allowing you to live lifetimes inside a few hours.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Straight talk, challenge and provocation are on tap in the happy hour of life today, but if that's not what you're in the mood for, you can always opt to stay home and drink water. Both options have their merits.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Since no one wins every battle, you're wise to only focus on the ones you really care about. Because with those, even if you lose, you have the pride of knowing you fought the good fight.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): The best interactions are a dance. In a dance, neither party causes the other to move, but when one person moves, countermovement is intuitive.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): You'll bring your sweet optimism generously and appropriately, but not indiscriminately. You've seen too much to greet every scene with wide eyes. Some scenes warrant scrutiny. Others require just a glance to see the red flags unfurl.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): It can be complicated mixing your family with larger social circles. If you give friends and acquaintances too much attention, those close to you can feel undervalued. Make sure your inner circle gets special perks.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You think about what you want, and reverse engineer things to create the effect. Mostly you'll be successful, and when you're not it's fun too. As much as you try to guide and cue people, their unpredictable responses will keep things interesting.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You'll gladly take on the responsibilities you can deliver upon, but if you're not sure you can do a good job, it's better to politely decline. If you go in with disclaimers, there's too much left open to interpretation, or, more likely, misinterpretation. Keep it clean and simple today.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Like film noir, there's something cool and mysterious about today. You'll flirt, but it's barely detectable. The conversation is nuanced, and the opportunities hidden deep enough to keep you guessing about the plot.

VENUS HOLDS A MIRROR: Venus and Saturn are at odds, and the moon brings the light of vulnerability to the scene. Every flaw has its upside. To be willing to work on a problem is admirable, but it's not the route. Don't overlook the benefits inside a limitation, which you may as well optimize while the problem is still yours. Also, consider that some flaws are better embraced than conquered, better featured than hidden.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: A number of sequels are coming up for Seth Rogen, including "Kung Fu Panda 4," "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem" and "Mufasa: The Lion King". Rogen was born when the Sun, Mercury and Jupiter were all in daring Aries, so it's no surprise that the risk-taking director, writer and movie star was once a teen stand-up comedian who dropped out of high school to make his Hollywood dreams come true.
