Fourth Week August 2007
A lot of people are under pressure this week. Try to act like you are all in the same boat – you are! Cut each other some slack. Use personal leave time if you have to. And remind yourselves to count the blessings you do have rather than the ones you don’t. Hug the kids, spouse and the dog.
Aries – March 20-April 19 – Ann Miller – The latter part of the week is terrific. You throw your energy into the task at hand, everyone loves you, movie night is loads of fun, and you just feel so darn lucky to be alive. Eating in appeals more than going out, unless you have the option of visiting Mom. She’s always the best cook, right? Beg for her secret recipes while she’s cooking your favorites. (Even if you tinker with them later.)
Taurus – April 20-May 20 – Helen Tamiris – The last Full Moon of the summer seems like a good excuse to have one more pool party. You still have briquettes and margarita mix, so pay back the invites you’ve accepted all summer with one big gathering. The gambling spirit grabs everyone, but not necessarily the luck, so here’s what to do: Host a casino night with play money only, and let everyone win something.
Gemini – May 21-June 20 – Isadora Duncan – You may feel like you’re outrunning a boulder in an Indiana Jones movie. It’s a time for rolling with the punches and protecting yourself. Don’t make instant decisions right now because you need time to think things over. The weekend looks good for talking things over with a buddy or family member. Find someone to remind you of the values you were brought up with.
Cancer – June 21-July 22 – Gower Champion – Service organizations appreciate your energies this week., even if you only pour the coffee. Your executive skills come to the fore – you never did like sitting on your hands when there was so much to be done. I see you making internet connections or running an online forum or swap meet.
Leo – July 23-Aug. 22 – Leonide Massine – This is such a decisive time for you – you will either break through to the heights or to the pits. The breaks come to those who are ready. Many Leos have been training and working very hard for their big break, so here’s to you and congratulations.
Virgo – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Lola Falana – It’s time for Virgos to make a decision about how to adapt to the changes in the air. Seek to be proactive and maintain control of the situation. Gather the best information you can from advisors and the web, sift and analyze. You may be forced to reinvent yourself (again!) but hey, that’s what multi-talented people do.
Libra – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Ben Vereen – You’re the Boss Mama this week. Your goddess power surges up from who knows where… maybe that last latte had a secret ingredient, who knows? I highly recommend making a goddess mask as a creative exercise. (A terrific free site at spiralgoddess.com has a self-test and how to make goddess masks.)
Scorpio – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Eleanor Powell – You’re more concerned with insurance for the kids before school starts than anything else. But once they are in classes, you give yourself permission to have your own playtime. Finally, a chance to visit a gallery or sign up for instructions at the craft store. The cat can play while the mice are away…;)
Sagittarius – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Hermes Pan – A marketing wiz can be a great help to you now in promoting your company or service. Perhaps an electronic newsletter needs revamping, or the email addresses updated. Seeks bids for new content or web designers.
Capricorn – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – George Balanchine – Even stay-at-home Capricorn moms run their homes like a corporation. They run a very tight ship, and everything is planned out to the smallest detail. Ask them how they do it, and take a page from their book, so to speak.
Aquarius – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Ruth St. Denis – The beginning of the week is a good time of month to incubate dreams. Refer to dreams.ca for instructions on how to tap into this subconscious level of creativity, knowledge, and problem solving. Your brain has other ways of solving problems than with cold logic.
Pisces – Feb. 18-March 19 – Marius Petipa – A somber mood on Monday night yields to the excitement of new plans and new insights on Tuesday. Try not to burn yourself out on the first day of the rest of your life…Your mind leaps tall concepts in a single bound this week. This is a great time for quickly grasping new material but not for detailed work. Make outlines, and either triple-check your figures or work with a detail-minded partner.
