Third Week August 2007

August 14, 2007 at 1:26 pm

This Tuesday the 21st is the best day in a long time to start a routine for getting fit and losing weight. And why? Because you will keep at it. You’ll actually enjoy lifting those weights and pushing yourself to achieve more each. Your most creative fall project can be your own silhouette. Start out keeping within your capacity, though; you don’t want to pull muscles the first week of a regimen. Not a good week for taking big gambles in Vegas.

Aries – March 20-April 19 – Joel Grey – Arians (and Aries Ascendant) usually aren’t couch potatoes but even you can benefit from a new and simpler approach to diet and fitness. Is the 5-element plan for you? You get along with your elders this week, and Thursday is ideal for spending time with an old pro who can show you a few tricks of the trade.

Taurus – April 20-May 20 – Shirley MacLaine – Face it, you’re basically lazy, and a shorter exercise routine, done more frequently, may be the right approach for you. Dust off the free weights and push yourself off the sofa — You may get in a contest  with your Significant Other over who can be the “biggest loser.” Guess who wins?

Gemini – May 21-June 20 – Isadora Duncan – Risk taking looks awfully tempting this week and next, but hedge your bets. Make sure that physical risks, too, are carefully planned. You tune in to the big picture Friday, but the detail eludes you. Make a rough sketch to fill in later.

Cancer – June 21-July 22 – Leslie Caron – The kids aren’t quite ready to think about going back to school, and you’re in charge of finding one more expedition before they do go back. How about visiting a sculpture garden, and then making their own versions in the back yard? Take pictures of the finished projects for the album and MySpace pages.

Leo – July 23-Aug. 22 – Mata Hari – Tuesday could bring an honor or award — (or a summons if you‘ve been hanging out with the wrong crowd!). Your dogged work the past two years has finally gotten you some recognition. Try to be magnanimous and give credit to all the unsung contributors behind the scenes.

Virgo – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Thierry Sirou – The 19th starts a three week phase when your mental acumen is particularly sharp. Thursday and Friday are very good for team efforts (see Capricorn). Your mutual respect produces stellar results on a joint project. Saturday is difficult as you start out like a house afire and then problems develop. Don’t let your frustrations spill out into arguments and blame. Step back for perspective.

Libra – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Juliet Prowse – A helping hand, or maybe a bunch of little hands, arrives on the scene for chores big and small. Treat them afterwards for a job well done. The weekend is great for a spa or sports getaway.  You always did like couples tennis or golf.

Scorpio – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 –  Savion Glover – Monday is a challenge day, but hey, you know how to rise to a challenge. Scorpio rising people are also due for some professional recognition early in the week. It turns out you know just the person your friend should talk to about a project. Introduce them to each other.

Sagittarius – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – June Taylor – You have so much mental and physical energy this week that you could overextend yourself. Double-check your preparations when taking risks. Be like Evel Knievel if planning stunts – he did thorough vector analysis before going near his motorcycle. And it isn’t a favorable time for casino gambles, either.

Capricorn – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Debbie Allen – Monday’s a pretty good day for you, as you tap into your own goddess energy for answers to team conflicts. (A terrific free site at spiral has a self-test and how to make goddess masks.) You get along splendidly with others late in the week, especially with Virgo. You two are often teammates when any “heavy lifting” has to be done, and once again you pair up on projects.

Aquarius – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Ruth St. Denis – Your energy levels begin to reach normal levels – could it be that lake vacation did the trick? You enjoy watching or teaching children dance. Make time for jumping rope and other childhood games — or just watching the kids play; feel the weight slide off your shoulders as they recharge your battery.

Pisces – Feb. 18-March 19 – Tommy Tune – Tuesday is when your rescheduled deadline arrives, and you’ll have to produce another rabbit out of a hat. Some people always think you’re fuzzy-headed, and late in the week you give them a little more fuel for that belief. Make a note in your PDA about your big insight to yourself; just wait for the pesky details to come to you later. On the 24th your SO and women friends have their own discussion with you squashed in the middle; bow out gracefully and give them space.

A special thanks to Spiral Goddess Grove for permission to mention the site and quote the “Bless This Day” prayer:
May this day be blessed with gifts

Lessons, understanding and friends

May my energy be a gift to all I meet
Let me be centered, healing and open

May I face the day with courage
kindness, insight and compassion
May my spirit and body, honor this day

A gift to my lovely readers —

As a special gift to my readers I thought you might enjoy some background music. A terrific writer and geek found these archived radio recordings of the Beatles for a Swedish radio show way back when. He cleaned them up a bit and edited them, and here they are. Five songs in cool condition. So turn up the volume alright already.
