The Dragon’s Secret, by Holiday Mathis

Must read

Most of the 12 animals featured in the Chinese Zodiac exist prominently in the world. Admittedly, there are fewer oxen then rats, fewer tigers than rabbits, though all run wild somewhere in the world, but one. Caught between worlds, in pages, screens and dreams, the dragon’s scales shimmer with the pure potential of our projections. Happy New Year. What do you want it to be?

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll have success, but you’re not one to rest on the latest hit. You take it as a sign to challenge yourself further. You’ll keep trying until you’re out of your element, because the misses teach you what you need.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re always seeking inner balance and alignment with the best within you. Today is one of those days when you’ll find it by doing less. Take a rest from the quest and let your natural inclinations lead you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Some of the day features a solo mission. Those who have journeyed before you have marked the trail to show you the features, alert you to the dangers, and remind you that you never really journey alone.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). If you try to cover all the bases and work every angle, you’ll exhaust your energy. Instead, do what you want. Prioritize and listen to your appetite. Your intentions are loving — act on them and you won’t go wrong.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There’s a restlessness to pay attention to and an instinct to regroup. Even if you haven’t planned it yet, you’re about to go somewhere new. Expect reactions from those who don’t want to see you leave.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). When people are late, it makes people question if they ever wanted to show up in the first place. You don’t want to seed such doubt and insecurity, and for this reason and more you’ll take extra measures to be prompt.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There’s no one like you. So there’s no need to wonder if others on the scene are having the same experience or thoughts as you, because of course they aren’t. Embrace your unique set of talents. You’ll find unity through diversity.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). People come to you with vague requests and meandering conversation, but you’ll read what’s underneath it all. They want you to help them feel seen. You will do so in a way that’s a win for all.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You will create wonderful things. They won’t be designed from your wishes and they won’t emerge fully formed from an ingenious plan. Instead, your creation will be born of trial and error and attempts to solve the problems of the day.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You cannot always feel the influence of those who have guided you in life. Those teachings you have internalized will not be experienced as an external force. In a moment of swift action, you’ll embody a teaching.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You haven’t been able to act on some of your good ideas, but stay positive and think about the opportunities you have been able to capitalize on. Here comes another bout of terrific luck. You’ll finally get more time to explore.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Setting off before you’re really ready puts you at a disadvantage. Don’t take the cake out of the oven until it’s baked. The ideas need to be tested, so be patient. Take the time to relate and listen to people. There’s nothing you need to hurry for.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 10). Your beautiful heart will radiate, attracting people who need your gifts as well as those who complement, enhance and value them. More highlights: Mountains of evidence of your good choices paying off and a new hobby will bring you sanctuary that fortifies you. Cancer and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 33, 29, 51 and 9.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: In the upcoming “DreamQuil,” Elizabeth Banks plays a woman whose robot clone assumes her identity.
