Starry Luck O' the Irish

Holiday Mathis on

Since a cash win or a big career break doesn't always bring fulfillment, it can't be considered categorically lucky. Virtues such as gratitude are a much surer bet, and Saint Patrick would agree. The sun and Mercury align in Pisces, emphasizing the spiritual aspects of good fortune, and glowing up the unsung virtues that tend to make a person luckier on the levels that matter.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Maybe being lazy is good after all. There's a way to handle today's problem that's more useful to others and less work for you. It's not difficult to find once you stop assuming that hard work is always the way.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You really try to put yourself in another person's shoes and see the world from there. This is an act of respect that will smooth your interactions, build your relationships and bless your future.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your self-esteem will waver, but don't let that knock you off your game. Even though you find yourself among people doing similar things, do not forget that your spiritual essence is unique and beautiful in a way that no one else's could ever be.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). When you open your eyes to the day, it can come rushing in like a cold wave or it can just as easily roll out before you, resplendent. It's not your schedule or responsibilities but how you feel about them that makes the difference.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Accept uncertainty and let go of control. Life is unpredictable, and there are times when trying to steer is counterproductive. Let the wheel turn. Don't fight it. You'll pick it back up at the conclusion of the spin.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). In this game, if you think you're winning, you're winning, mostly because it's your game. Have a little talk to yourself about the rules. Imagine the most supportive and creative Mary Poppins type was on your side. What would she allow?

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). "Are you with me or are you against me?" they will ask. It would be better for you if you didn't have to draw so stark a line. To blur into the gray areas would be more comfortable and truer. If anyone can do this, you can.


SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'll give generously and then be a little surprised at what they still need from you. Time to lay a boundary. You'll diplomatically begin with common ground and positivity and move gently to less comfortable realms.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The rule of gratitude is not to evaluate what you have by comparing it to what others have or what there is to have or what you didn't get. Gratitude is being thankful you have a thing, as compared to not having it at all.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Is there a problem? There could be, but why build a case for it if there's not tons of evidence to support the premise? To worry needlessly robs you of precious enjoyment of life.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You appreciate support, but you don't depend on it. There's something in the idea of a solo journey that challenges your mind now. You want to know who you are, and what you can do. You will find out.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Sometimes felicity is a bluebird landing on your shoulder. But happiness will be a build-it-yourself kit today. You have all the elements, though assembly is not included. It will be there because you put it there.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 17). Welcome to your year of angelic audacity. You'll have the sort of gumption you don't have to work up. It will just come to you in the moment you need it. The outcome of these bursts may bring you bounty, but none so rich as the knowledge that you are connected to the churning of the world. Returned with interest: your generosity, affection and attention. Education brings a financial boost. Scorpio and Aries adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 14, 20, 5, 19 and 30.
