Pre-Equinox Grace

Holiday Mathis on

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.

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.

COSMIC QUESTION: "I'm a Virgo manager overseeing a team of 12 and deal most closely with two employees, a Sagittarius and an Aquarius. Whenever the Sagittarius does something wrong, I make an effort to correct and retrain. Whenever the Aquarius does something wrong, I am frustrated, wonder if he'll ever get this job right and suspect that he might have done this on purpose. I'm trying to be a good manager, and I know this is hardly fair, so why is it so difficult to treat everyone the same?"


Your desire to be fair is commendable and in keeping with your Virgo drive to nurture others and continually grow toward your own ideals. With these two employees, you would do well to accept your bias and recognize that you are participating in human instinct. When someone we like makes a mistake, it is normal for our minds to leap to a justification on their behalf. When someone we dislike makes a mistake, it is normal to leap to blame.

Once you accept that your behavior is normal, the next step is to decide that you would like to be better than normal. You've already done this by examining your own actions. More on this tomorrow ...

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Jason Derulo was somewhat of a child prodigy, having studied opera and ballet and written songs for Ditty and Danity Kane when he was still a teenager. The "Cats" star dips further into the world of acting in the upcoming bio pic "Spinning Gold" about Neil Bogart, co-founder of Casablanca Records. The Virgo was born under a fast-talking, clever Gemini moon and has Mercury and Mars in harmonious Libra.
