First Week August 2007
You’ve pounded your sore blistered feet for months or years, taking lessons, going from one teacher to the next, and now you see a glimmer at the end of the tunnel. It may not be the bright lights of Broadway, yet. But it’s something that, if you continue to apply yourself to it, will reward your diligence — and the rewards will be abundant. Tell yourself, “Something better is coming, and I am ready now.”
Readers can follow not only their Sun sign horoscope but also the sign of their Ascendant for further clues to how your week will develop.
Aries – March 20-April 19 – Sergei Diaghilev – The mid-week blahs never materialize because all of sudden people find you charming and worthwhile. Friends call you out of the blue to come for drinks or a barbecue. Be a good sport and turn out for some quality time. You’re not known for sensitivity but bring something to share.
Taurus – April 20-May 20 – Fred Astaire – The project hits snags at the week’s start because of uncoordinated efforts. Two horses cannot pull a cart if they pull in different directions. How about setting an appt. for Thursday to clarify the goals you have in common? Words flow much more easily then.
Gemini – May 21-June 20 – Bill “Bojangles” Robinson – Monday nt. sees you picking up all the balls that dropped during the day. By mid-week you’re juggling them like a pro and have more energy. See Virgo, as you two could find that a creative partnership opens new avenues of expression. You’re both good at adapting to others. No, it won’t be smooth as glass. But friction creates sparks, and sparks create warmth and light.
Cancer – June 21-July 22 – Bob Fosse – It’s nice to actually get something done now that the phone isn’t announcing a crisis every hour. Thursday you decide to show your love with IM’s and something from the oven. Friday can be your lucky day as happy accidents brighten your outlook. Those serendipitous meetings or chance remarks put you on the trail of a wonderful idea. Check out that new website, too.
Leo – July 23-Aug. 22 – Mata Hari – Leos everywhere get closer to the spotlight Monday. A project looks as if it couldn’t be worth your time, but it will surprise you down the road. From Wednesday on, the week gets better and better. You’re asked for your opinion. You find the right words at the right time, and they reach receptive ears for once. Saturday you are full of energy to tackle anything.
Virgo – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Agnes deMille – Monday your professor or consultant sounds exasperated with you. Deflect the heat and catch the light. Tuesday you and a Gemini set off sparks, creative and otherwise. If the two parties can harness the energy, audiences will find it fascinating. Friday is good for donating your services to a charitable organization or other shared effort.
Libra – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Fayard Nicholas – Remember the dream sequence in “Oklahoma”? You may not be Agnes deMille but you could find some inspiration in a dream later this week. Dreams could solve that technical snag you’ve been puzzling over for weeks. For info on dream incubation and instructions, go to dreams.ca.
Scorpio – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Savion Glover – Get caught up on details while you have the chance. Mid-week our creativity is used in adjusting, rewriting, redecorating and all those re- words. You luck onto something early Friday, and your eagle eye knows exactly what kind of luck you stumbled onto. Maybe it’s that rare coin in your change when buying yourself a latte.
Sagittarius – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Sammy Davis, Jr. – Pause to think deeply this week about the value of higher education, as you might decide to re-enroll in school or change majors. Where can you make a difference? That answer can pull you through many all-nighters preparing for a new career or calling.
Capricorn – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Alvin Ailey – That party or trip to the ballpark scheduled for Sunday just won’t go smoothly. Friends will pout and sulk and we know how you hate that sort of thing. Neutralize things by drawing lots, or even better, reschedule for Friday.
Aquarius – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Mikhail Baryshnikov – You, too, may feel sparks fly early in the week with a very pleasant contact. Don’t bother arguing over money on Tuesday; that won’t get you anywhere at all. A mid-week movie with friends is just the thing to recharge your creative juices. You’re pumped up through Friday. Where do those ideas come from?
Pisces – Feb. 18-March 19 – Cyd Charisse – You feel the pressure early in the week to make a deadline. Doesn‘t matter if it‘s impossible to meet. You dug yourself into that hole, and now you’re facing overtime to catch up. Please repeat after me, I can do anything for fifteen minutes — and break down your task into un-intimidating chunks. You can even squeeze in time to read your old love letters over tea.
