October 22, 2007
Thursday is such a hot-button day. Innocent phrases can be blown way out of proportion, especially in the early morn. Meditate on the feeling of harmony before retiring Wednesday, so as to get the day off on the right foot. If a rift occurs, and you really want to get together again, try the forty day affirmation. Simply say this every day to yourself three times, for 40 day straight: “I’m sorry for everything I’ve done to you. Thank you for everything you’ve done for me.” Focus on the bond you had between you two. Do not call or write. A shift will occur.
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 – Serge Lifar – Your best days this month are midweek. But check to make sure you have your instructions clear before starting a Wed. project, or you could wind up starting over. Thursday is much better, in fact you may be up during the wee hours sketching out the details of a project. You get the thumbs up or down that afternoon. Someone at work cries on your shoulder — be nice because he or she just might introduce you to the love of your life.
Taurus – April 20-May 20 – Shirley MacLaine – Many late hours are spent on your project; you finally know how you’re going to finish that outline and so you push ahead. Make time for a neighborhood sport or spa pick-me-up. A special dinner Thursday or Friday is favored, provided you can tear yourself away from your sudden popularity. A challenge succumbs to your charm early Friday, or to your personal attention at a luncheon.
Gemini – May 21-June 20 – Bill “Bojangles” Robinson – Start planning the holidays now to avoid getting loaded down with debt that you will still be paying off in 2008. Hide your credit card from yourself. Negotiate a pull-names-from-a-hat gift exchange instead of shopping for the whole clan. Part of your problem could be house repairs eating your paycheck; try trading services or listing requests on freecycle or at work. An avocation can become a career with key backing by certain women in your life.
Cancer – June 21-July 22 – Twyla Tharp – Burning up some calories at the gym keeps you in a good mood. Keeping to a schedule helps you chip away at a big job – this could be a writing project. Write a part for yourself — you know what you do best, so go do it. It worked for Sylvester Stallone! Mysteries of one kind or another are always an audience draw.
Leo – July 23-Aug. 22 – Leonide Massine – An unexpected money gift falls into your lap. Could be a modest lottery win, could be a gift or loan from Mom. It’s difficult choosing from the offers tossed your way. One good one involves film or music and will put you in the public eye. Another involves playing a biography – possibly you know the writer – and this is a good one, too.
Virgo – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Mitzi Gaynor – You have had the benefit of a partnership for some time. But now you want to take the training wheels off, so to speak, and try riding on your own power. Step out on your own, visit customers without the team leader, etc. It isn’t as easy as it looked, right? Show some appreciation for all the help you’ve been extended. Many of us are frustrated and under a strain, and a Sunday getaway to a quiet place in the country would do everyone a lot of good.
Libra – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Arthur Duncan – More email than you know what to do with is clogging your in-box. Set up some filters to weed out the spam, and possibly you could use some part-time help to handle mail. Check online for management tips and tools, because your schedule is filling up with speaking dates. Organization is key. Spend some downtime catching up on films you missed, or attend a film festival. Work the plots into your speaking notes to illustrate your points.
Scorpio – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Savion Glover – The week brings a chance to get to the bottom of someone’s half-hearted cooperation. Invite him or her over for dinner; an informal setting may help you both to speak more frankly. Also you get a boost in energies for the next month. Writing projects are favored especially if you start Tues. pm. Reserve that time to start, edit, or pitch your project. Add a grain of salt to any compliments received, but do take to heart any helpful criticism.
Sagittarius – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Hermes Pan – You like excess, but it could be your downfall if you let it affect your health. Visit a nutritionist or health food store for tips on keeping up your energy. Don’t wait for a wake-up call. Eat at home before going to the flicks so you are not tempted by the concession stand. You recharge your batteries at the pool or lake; swimming and canoeing amid the fall color sounds great.
Capricorn – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Debbie Allen – What you need comes your way this fall, altho you have to go out and get it. Try listing wants on the internet or swapping books in online clubs. Enjoy Friday’s Super Moon (a Full Moon at closest approach to Earth) by touching base with harvest festivals, spending quality time with a spouse, or making Chinese moon cakes.

Aquarius – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Mikhail Baryshnikov – Bettering the world by bringing more tolerance and benevolent altruism is a worthy subject for a full moon meditation. Then go out and find some petitions to sign and circulate. Democracy is not a spectator sport. Offer to moderate or write questions for a local political debate.
Pisces – Feb. 18-March 19 – Rudolf Nureyev – Kicking over the traces is not a real good idea for you. Try to imagine yourself walking a mile in the other’s shoes each day until the urge to leave dissipates. The week is best for solitary hikes and drives to the country, sitting by waterfalls and painting still lifes (probably with a lot of angry reds and oranges). Learning to be your own best friend is a lifetime project. Visiting Mom or Mom-in-law can give you lots of insights.
