American Solar Return

Holiday Mathis on

Happy 246th birthday to the United States of America, born on this day in 1776. As far as nations go, America is younger than many, between the 14-year-old Kosovo and The Republic of San Marino, which was was founded in 301 BCE. The USA was born under the sign of domesticity, patriotism and maternal energy.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The treasure hunt is on. You have the most clues, but you still need more resources to take you to the "X" that marks the spot -- perhaps plane tickets? Team with Sagittarius and Gemini for luck.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The featured endeavor is reminiscent of a school project, complete with a report, presentation, display and, for bonus points, a crowd-pleasing giveaway. It's fun work, as long as you don't wait until the last minute.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are a great balance to those who are overly concerned with their status. You see everyone as equals with different roles to play. A person who stands up and cheers serves an equally important purpose as the person being cheered on.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Solutions are subjective. There's no wrong or right, only what works or doesn't work for you. It will seem as though nothing is working, until you hear an answer that strikes a chord. Yes, it's for you. You'll try it, and, "Walla!"

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Under these stars it would be easy to forget the one or two things that will make things run smoothly. They may not be items so much as attitudes. For best results, prepare for the day by running it in your mind before you step out.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You're in the mood to let life amuse you, and you won't be disappointed. People witnessing the same scene will have interesting and varied interpretations, revealing more about how they think than about what actually happened.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There are people in your life who honor you with a quality of attention that makes your heart sing. Today you'll have some competition for that attention. You'll shine as you handle it with grace, class and maturity.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It would be easy to spend your time buying, using and maintaining material things, but what you're really after now is something that can't be seen, owned or controlled. Having it is therefore tricky, but you'll find a way.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Oh, the magnificent luck. Someone you adore feels the same about you. There's alchemy at work in this relationship, which has its own character and spirit. A special magic happens when the two of you connect.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It's impossible to bring sunshine into other people's lives without also feeling the warmth in your own. You'll pull together a harmonious group and bask in the rays of mutual acceptance and celebration.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). People take your open heart as an invitation to reveal things to you that they don't tell many others. Not only do you make people feel seen and heard but you make them feel that they are acceptable and normal.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). From tea service to spacecraft launching, there are rules for everything. You'll learn the rule first, break it second. That's the order that brings the most pleasure and, for the right rebellion, the most respect.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (July 4). The oxygen of optimism feeds the flame of your heart's desire, illuminating the way to its own fulfillment. You'll compromise for a special close relationship, and your lives entwine in interesting and supportive new configurations. More highlights: a flourishing business, a dear animal connection and a winning hand. Aries and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 20, 4, 44 and 19.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Former first family member Malia Obama has the same birthday as the country she was born in. A loyal Cancer with Venus and Mars in communicative Gemini indicates one who is fast on her feet, a quick thinker and excellent debater. Moon in Scorpio points to a rich inner life and love of solitude and privacy, yet the spotlight has irresistible magnetism for someone with a natal Mercury in Leo.
