Astrology of Minneapolis Bridge Collapse 2007

The astrological chart for this event features not one but two Yods, and also a square between Mars and Saturn. Mars is often active in accidents, and Saturn is structure, and by extension infrastructure such as bridges. Jupiter (retrograde) is square the nodes of the Moon, and trining the Sun – Part of Fortune conjunction.

Looking at an astrological chart of the collapse, it features Pluto within minutes of the 27degree, 43 minute ascendant in Sagittarius. It is the point of a Yod, an isosceles triangle with 150 degrees between planets on the long sides, and 60 degrees between planets on the short side. The other planets forming this Yod are Mars at 26 degrees Taurus in the fifth house, and Mercury at 24 degrees of Cancer in the seventh house.

Christmas Week, December 2007

Merry Christmas, everybody! Christmas morning this year is an at-home, private event.

Evening is right for visiting the grandparents, tho. — Many of you received a lovely fashionable scarf for Christmas. Do you know what to do with it? Go to Missus Smarty Pants at for free directions on how to use your oblong scarf to great effect! (Free webpage.)
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 – Ann Miller – Your career really gets a boost this week and all through the coming new year, woo-hoo! Discipline in your health routine will keep your batteries charged for what is sure to be a busy, demanding year. The home front on Christmas eve will probably be a snarl of short tempers and frustrations. Just pitch in with last minute tasks, and tell the spouse to let go of the rest — it’s not worth the aggravation she gives herself.

Taurus – April 20-May 20 – Fred Astaire – Artistic discipline is the keyword for the week (and for almost two years, really). If you write, get in the habit of writing something every day. If you paint, sing, play, whatever, find a good teacher or educational program and apply yourself every day. For Christmas, just having the loving mate you lucked onto is enough. Show you appreciate every minute.

Gemini – May 21-June 20 – Bill “Bojangles” Robinson – You will be so tempted to blow your gift budget and pull out credit cards in last minute shopping. Stop! Stop! You’ve spent enough, done enough, and all they want from you is your presence (not your presents). And the latest gossip, of course, which you are all too glad to dish out.

Cancer – June 21-July 22 – Rasta Thomas – Aim to get done with preparations by Christmas eve, because by that time, you will be as tired and cranky as a toddler who’s missed his nap. Spend Christmas eve counting blessings. Plan a simpler Christmas Day, let the kids help with tasks, push some family get-togethers back to the weekend when everyone has had a chance to catch their breaths.

Leo – July 23-Aug. 22 – Mata Hari – If you didn’t get what you hoped for Christmas, or if you got gift cards, you will eagerly scoop up discounted fashions on Wednesday. Only don’t run up some more credit card debt, for pete’s sake. Your health takes a turn for the better. Ailments or injuries of long standing may finally heal properly.

Virgo – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Marge Champion – Your creative urges are revived and demand expression. Try shopping for art supplies or a class this week, especially Friday. You will enjoy a year-long boom in any creative endeavor — now, this may mean having a baby, but usually it means writing a book, or getting a play produced, or painting a picture, etc. Fri. & Sat. are best days.

Libra – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Fayard Nicholas – Christmas eve day at work has folks blurting out their frustrations. Just do your part to get deadlines met before the office closes for the holiday. Seek out after Christmas bargains in art supplies for painting, photography, or music. Invest in You. Your muse settles in for a spell, so she needs to feel welcome and honored. It feels like your connection to the sacred is worked out in your medium.

Scorpio – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Savion Glover – The volume of messages picks up considerably this week. People you re-connect with, and new contacts, too, remain in touch for at least the coming year. Writing projects also start to bear fruit, with you finding a publisher and an audience. In the artistic arena, start seeking a strong teacher if are serious about learning more about your craft.

Sagittarius – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Merrill Ashley – The big hot-air balloon that carried you through 2007 is continuing on its merry way without you. So sorry, but it is back to normal for you… You’ll survive being just folks, honest. You’ll have time for renovating the home electrical system, and a new phone or computer hardware or software. A disciplined approach to work pays off.

Capricorn – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – George Balanchine – You get a real boost of expansive good cheer this Christmas. Just about everyone sends you sincere best wishes. Even if 2009 brings challenges, a guardian angel spreads protective wings around you. On the creative front, formal classes in something like painting or even landscaping can light a fuse. Painting or photographing still lifes provides endless material for experimentation.

Aquarius – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Mikhail Baryshnikov – You are often generous to a fault, and this year is no exception. Rest assured, you are appreciated and darn near irreplaceable. The week may start off with an upset stomach, so take special care not to overdo on spicy or unfamiliar foods. Don’t plan anything for Thursday morning, you may be on a sugar high from holiday sweets or drinks.

Pisces – Feb. 18-March 19 – Marius Petipa – You probably gave yourself way too much to do this week, right? Now you’re tearing your hair out as usual trying to keep up. Hold on now, just take 15 minutes per task or per room. If you don’t have 15 minutes, take 10 minutes. Or even just TWO. It will get done, just jump in where you are, and set some small chores for the kids so they feel like they are a real part of the family, too.

Fourth Week November 2007

The real challenge is balancing what you WANT with what you NEED. Those who are tempted to buy everything they WANT will surely face a mountain of debt in January. Instead, think about sharing what you know. Offer to trade lessons in computer skills for lessons in knitting or horseback riding. Or trade what you have made, like jams or wine, for help balancing your books. Simplicity and sharing are going to be big keywords this Christmas.
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 – Ann Miller – Your money house is active, very active. It’s like you are now harvesting all your efforts made over the past several months, and converting it all into cash. An example is if you spent the summer producing something that’s popular around the holidays, so now your inventory is flying off the shelf. I think you will do well, and donating a unit to the fundraiser auction just gives you more visibility.

Taurus – April 20-May 20 – Helen Tamiris – You find a moment to spend on yourself, and it will be time & money well spent. A new hairdo makes you look more polished. Even better is a new health routine that makes you feel beautiful both inside and out. Learning to tap or bellying up to the barre do wonders for you. In the parenting department, sometimes you have to be the meanie and tell the kids ‘no.’ You have to be the grownup and limit their sweets. Best gift option: lessons that increase their competency and confidence.

Gemini – May 21-June 20 – Isadora Duncan – Your artwork becomes more beautiful to look at – maybe your palette shifts toward art tints. This will bring compliments at your next showing. You also enjoy holiday times with the children, especially. Activities like making cookies together to attending mini-concerts to going caroling is fun, since you’re still a kid a heart, anyway. Chaperoning a class visit to carol for the seniors at a nursing home brings a rare joy.

Cancer – June 21-July 22 -Rasta Thomas – Mon. & Tues. are your best days this month. You feel good but probably a bit lazy. A burst of energy in the early am Tues. soon fizzles out, tho, and you would be better off checking with others before running off on a tangent. Midday Tues. is good for messages and a chat over brunch with a best friend. Working with the food bank or church on holiday projects gives you a bigger outlet for your talents. You’re a natural organizer and you have a big, big heart.

Leo – July 23-Aug. 22 – Mata Hari – The 28th and 29th are great days for you. You get some time in the spotlight, and feel a touch of glamour being in the public eye. Maybe you act as a spokesperson for the tour and drum up a bit of good press. Just make sure you have some note cards with the pertinent facts so you don’t mis-speak, and give credit to others in the cast, too. PS – Old grudges fade away in the onrush of holiday feeling — Leo is magnanimous, so giving of yourself is a snap for you.

Virgo – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Lola Falana – The Spirit of the season is very personal and very sacred, whether you are allied with a formal church or not. Making the world a better place is a year-round task for you, and more power to you. You ‘do up’ your home in a big way this year, and I get this vibe that you have a guest, too. Your home has an international flavor – maybe you’re even hosting a foreign exchange student. How exciting it is to share traditions!

Libra – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Arthur Duncan – Concentrate on creative pursuits this week. Your muse speaks very clearly, altho to be sure, it doesn’t send any postcards. But spend your time in the studio, take your camera or easel everywhere, and keep your artist’s eye peeled for moments in time. You may meet a financial advisor this week, too. Check out credentials and references, of course, and insist on someone who believes in diversified investments – not all in one fund.

Scorpio – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Savion Glover – Your own voice comes through the static loud and clear, now that you’ve finally figured out who you are. People start to look to you for common-sense leadership in the use of pooled resources (like insurance, mutual funds, etc.). In the creative field you find real enjoyment in box office, management or broker roles. Maybe you can negotiate common ground in union disputes so everyone can have a great theatre season this fall.

Sagittarius – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Hermes Pan – You feel caught between personal needs and the desire to share resources with charitable or arts organizations. You can do both, you know. Collect for the local arts drive, get your company to buy a block of ballet tickets. Your home is the best place for family get-togethers this week. Kick back and relax, let the kids decorate cookies while you sip cocoa ‘round the fireplace.

Capricorn – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – George Balanchine – You decide to send all your Christmas greetings electronically this year. The e-cards get better every year, and trees are spared. Or send the family newsletter as an email this year, complete with smileys. You’re working hard and maybe even got a raise, but you scratch your head over where the money’s going. Try to find an advisor to find the leaks in the budget. Your hobby could grow into a second income, so go ahead and get all the knowledge you need to do it right.

Aquarius – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Ruth St. Denis – Follow your intuition. Socialize at large events, draw out the wallflowers, compliment those you feel need a bit of encouragement. Your conviction that everyone has something to contribute really needs to be heard among those who think that the elite know best. Do watch out for your health, and don’t eat when angry. Some foods could be irritating your system; try eliminating prepared foods in favor of fresh.

Pisces – Feb. 18-March 19 – Marius Petipa – Brush up on the terms ‘phishing’ and ‘pharming.’ Step away from the computer this holiday shopping season. You are too tempted to get it all done in one weekend and don’t realize that someone is stealing your info. I myself was tempted by a popup that had copied my bank’s logo and everything. Be the smart one this year, make your own presents using your own unique talents and a few supplies from the craft store. And you ARE very talented.

First Week November 2007

Actually the first two weeks of the month are a good time to get some Christmas shopping out of the way early. Not that you splurge on big-ticket items like ski trips or anything like that. But it is possible for savvy shoppers to snap up discounted goods now and stash them away. I think the public will find it hard to find the energy to do holiday activities in December, whether due to an early flu bug – the uncertainty of the times – gas prices and fuel surcharges – but people will not want to dash all over town. That means more shopping online, and exchanging non-material gifts like personal service ‘coupons.’ Think about offering relatives lessons in something you do well.
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 – Buddy Ebsen – Pick your words carefully Monday if dealing with powerful entities – there is a chance to win them over but only if you do not alienate them first. Tuesday you find a congenial coworker or professional colleague – you two will have lots to talk about. You may be busier than ever in spokesperson duties.

Taurus – April 20-May 20 – Martha Graham – Food safety and children’s health issues are on your menu. You may be in the public eye as a spokesperson or interviewee. Be prepared, scout around on the internet for the story behind the story. In the creative area, formal training is favored now. You also tend to prefer classic works over new ones, so check around for repertory theatre schedules.

Gemini – May 21-June 20 – Isadora Duncan – Your expressive communications skills are highly polished this fall, especially if you deal with partnership issues in an artistic pursuit. Writing, speaking, and consulting should all be on your schedule, whether you are in the social services or in the creative writing field. A bit of social advocacy is called for, too. Guard your health and eat only organic, locally grown foods.

Cancer – June 21-July 22 – Gower Champion – Try to get your fall decorating done and finalize deals before mid-month. You especially will not feel like hosting the upcoming holiday feasts — tell your kids that it is their turn, and plan to put up your feet this once. Offer your secret family recipes now so that they can recreate the same favorite foods. 

Leo – July 23-Aug. 22 – Leonide Massine – Around the 4th you are feeling strong and ready to tackle big jobs. You’re awfully tempted to dip into the contingency fund for art materials or new performance space. If this is a renovation, the grand reopening will bring raves.

Virgo – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Agnes deMille – You arrive at work Monday with an energy high from the weekend. Messages can force you to reschedule your week, so make sure your backup plans are in order. Thursday is better than Tuesday for scheduling a conference with your mortgage lender. Those with careers in the creative arts will find what they need in terms of a concrete services, such as lighting services. Make sure the equipment is confirmed before signing a contract.

Libra – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Michael Smuin – On Tuesday afternoon, resist the urge to rush through something just to finish by 5 pm, because you will probably have to backtrack. How come there’s never enough time to do it right, but always enough time to do it over? Wednesday is better, when you get a vote of confidence. From Thursday to Dec. 4, your graceful beauty gets a boost. Don’t be surprised by compliments for a new hairdo or even that fave old sweater.

Scorpio – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Savion Glover – Wed. is a very creative and expressive day if working with electronic or broadcast media. Fri.- Sat. are your best days this month, and most things go thru without interference or interruptions. An organization  may give you a little pat on the back Thursday evening. Friday is very active and productive. Saturday I think the lazy mood will strike, and you can easily sit on your patio or boat and soak up some rays.

Sagittarius – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Alexander Godunov – Sat. evening thru Mon. the 12th are your best days of the month. Sat.- favors pleasure outings with friends, possibly at a gallery or concert. I really hope you don’t spend the whole Sunday on work you’ve brought home. That evening, you are ready for a real change of pace – the more unusual a suggestion is, the more you’ll like it. Monday afternoon, you introduce a friend to a neighbor who have synergistic ideas; something big is sure to come of it.

Capricorn – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Alvin Ailey – Some shrewd advice may come from a lawyer or advocate who is a sibling or neighbor. Be willing to use this person as a sounding board regarding workplace issues. Some decisions are best delayed – Really! Tensions with a partner will ease if you give yourself a chance to talk things out. You look into having a home studio, or a rented loft, that you can use for sculpting or teaching.

Aquarius – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Ruth St. Denis – Money luck for you this week, possibly thru some consulting work you’re doing. Friday is especially favored. Your career’s about to catch the wind, even if the boss does think you’re a bit unusual. If you have any nagging muscle pains, etc., you could find an effective treatment already. Look into hydrotherapy, swimming, or any form of exercise that doesn’t stress your joints.

Pisces – Feb. 18-March 19 – Tommy Tune – An advocate can give you some eye-opening advice this month. Your spouse’s free advice is ignored, but if the same words come from a professional, you are all ears. This advice is something you really need to take to heart, and believe me, it will pay off big if you get your act together. An accidental discovery leads you to experiment with warmer colors. That look may not be right for a current project, but make notes for future reference.

Halloween, October 2007

Halloween is perfect astrologically for getting in touch with the inner wisdom. This can mean developing your psychic abilities or just meditating. Just do it, indeed! If you can, light a white candle or incense first, or just whisper a prayer of protection, then ask your spirit guides to point out the right path. (A spirit guide can be Jesus, a saint or your beloved grandmother.) Meditation and journaling are good ways to pay attention to quiet, stray thoughts that may be your shy guide trying to get a word in edgewise. Those in Eastern time zones may find the hour before their regular working day to be most effective. Some good recent books are “Intuition Made Easy” and “Suddenly Psychic: A Skeptic’s Journey.” Another good read is ‘The Complete A to Z’ online free at At About, you can find simple experiments to practice your ESP, at Check out this website and click on How to Channel, then read the essay on Channeling Spirit Guides.
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 – Ann Miller – You love costume parties and masks so please find some local event to attend. Your significant other fascinates you with a most unusual costume at a most unusual event. Do you have something on the calendar re a guild or fraternity party? Do go, and have a blast. Sorry I can’t suggest a costume, because you have your own unique inspiration this year.

Taurus – April 20-May 20 – Audrey Hepburn – A foreign film or a touring hit show is more appealing to you on Halloween than a party. The party scene will seem so dull to you in comparison, and you know you will eat way too much candy. You get your dose of partying earlier at a company event, and that provides enough laughs for the week. But if hubby insists you go to a party, try impersonating a Hollywood love goddess, like J Lo, Pamela, or Garbo.

Gemini – May 21-June 20 – Henry LeTang – It’s no fun just sitting alone in your room…and besides, at parties there’s lots of people to talk to. You can tell the same story five times in a night and make it sound different each time. And I think you can talk one of those listeners into taking you out for dinner another night. Need costume ideas? Probably a reporter or talk-show host. Use a microphone or notepad as props, a press card in your hatband. Impersonate Oprah or Cronkite.

Cancer – June 21-July 22 – Rasta Thomas – Tues-Wed are your best days this month. Your child’s teacher may be well-meaning in discouraging your child (or you!) from a life in the arts, but you will have to set him or her straight as diplomatically as possible. Seek better sources of guidance at the college’s information desk. For Halloween, I suggest the queens of history as a theme. Marie Antoinette with her neck ringed in red. Cleopatra with a rubber snake on her arm.

Leo – July 23-Aug. 22 – Mata Hari – Halloween lets you be a kid again. The whole family has fun together. Don’t ask me whether to go out or stay in, because your spirit makes anything great fun this week. November feels like it gets off to a good start for you, Leo. Just eat lightly Friday at lunch because otherwise you will be nodding off. A piece of news or a package finally comes thru late in the day. It is something that the whole family will be glad to hear. Costume: movie star of course.

Virgo – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Gene Kelly – You are not too sure about all this begging for treats and dashing around in costumes. It seems far too excessive to you, and you have to force yourself to accept a small orange-frosted cupcake. You might be one of those who actually looks back to the ancient sacred traditions this year. Honor the lares and penates at the family altar, and burn candles for the dead. Try chanting, drumming, communing with the Universal Mind. Costume? A Greek goddess.

Libra – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Juliet Prowse – Many Librans feel that fall is their favorite time of year. Painting and photography are favored this week as you try to catch the last autumn harvest scenes. For Halloween, you favor a hearth fire. Maybe the cauldron holds a real fish boil outdoors instead of eye of newt. You can tell guests that the potatoes are eyeballs and the carrots are troll toes. Costume idea: fish or mermaid, maybe Ariel with legs.

Scorpio – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Eleanor Powell – Ooh, your favorite holiday is this week. You can dress up as yourself, Queen of the Night. Or maybe as Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. You want it all — A) the spectacular bonfire in the neighborhood (don‘t forget the marshmallows), B) the terrific party (by the pool if possible), with lots of games and laughs, and if we can get a couple people together for a C) séance or a spoon-bending orgy, oh would that be cool. This could be the best Halloween ever.

Sagittarius – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Sammy Davis, Jr. – You’re in such a sociable mood Monday in the line for coffee that you hardly get to work on time. The life of the party is supposed to wait till Halloween for the fun and games to start, but you’re warming up the crowd early. Make sure the boss doesn’t catch you spinning a story at the water cooler. Any costume that lets you wear red is OK with you, you devil you.

Capricorn – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – George Balanchine – When you get the psychic flashes, they’re usually about which stock to buy or sell. No silly messages from the beyond for you, you want the inside scoop. As for Halloween, you have two equally appealing plans. Plan A is the local pub crawl till the witching hour. Plan B is camping out with a real fire, telling ghost stories and watching your Significant Other moon-dance. If you’re forced to attend a costume event, the outdoorsman is probably You. A wood-chopper or maybe Red Green, complete with suspenders.

Aquarius – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Gregory Hines – After this week, we will call you Oracle. You ran through all the lessons online. You can’t wait to tell people what card they chose. You’ll have ordered the business cards already. Play Karnac the Magnificent at your party, or any of the 800-number psychics — complete with crystal ball.

Pisces – Feb. 18-March 19 – Marius Petipa – Actually, you are not much for play this week, and you don‘t feel like being in public place this Halloween. I see you spending the holiday holed up at work. Possibly you work in a bar or other business that depends on revelers, and so this is just another work day for you. That’s OK, someone has to pour the beers and keep the tone light and fluffy. Costume ideas: political figures? Nixon is a classic; try to master the hunched shoulders.

Third Week September 2007

The months ahead finds lots of us obsessing on the idea of perfection. “Oh, I had things so perfect (or so close to perfect) and then X had to happen.” What we will find is that perfection is an illusion, along with happiness or success. We thought that the word described a condition, rather than a process. Spin the kaleidoscope and see how each view is just as perfect as the next. So is our life — each month or year is totally perfect in the sense that it brings us closer to our best self. Free instructions on taking digital photos of a kaleidoscope at
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 – You hate to admit you may have bitten off more than you can chew this month. The demands on your time and energies are pretty severe, but you decide to just dig in and hang tough for now. Don’t ignore your needs for petty things like food now and then, or a few hours’ sleep. You’ll get a lot more done in the end. Also private counsel with a legal rep can prove very helpful.

Taurus – April 20-May 20 – Audrey Hepburn – A tremendously energizing period for Taurus rising, especially, this month. Lots of creative ideas early in the week; keeping a schedule or log helps you keep track of them before inspiration is lost. Just be careful about running up debt, especially for insurance. Don’t buy more than you need. Am tempted to suggest hiding the credit cards from yourself, but your feet are too firmly on the ground to get carried away, aren’t they?

Gemini – May 21-June 20 – Henry LeTang – Focusing your energies may feel strange to you, accustomed as you are to juggling ten things at once. But remember that trick with a magnifying lens igniting a fire? No, I don’t mean for you to go out setting fires! I’m saying that you could leave us all in the dust if you concentrated on just one (OK maybe two) things this week.

Cancer – June 21-July 22 – Bob Fosse – Financial pressures finally ease off, and cash flow looks much better. The money’s more fun, too, because it comes from something that means more to you than just a job. If I have any caution for you at all, it is to avoid spending it as fast as you make it, and also any excesses that may affect your health. Double-check that you don’t pay for something the insurance should cover.

Leo – July 23-Aug. 22 – Leonide Massine – Monday pm is good for effectively communicating your values or esthetic sense. Make your presentations that day, and go all out with multi-media and samples. Friday late is awful for budgeting or anything too practical, as you will always rationalize any excuse to go over budget. Don’t fall in love with a color scheme for example, till you run it by the costume designer or set decorator. A wealth of options present themselves, and you hate having to pick just one.

Virgo – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Gene Kelly – Monday finds you untypically digging in your heels on a point of contention. Please, step back for a moment. Are you arguing just to be right or to better serve the customer? Do a quick engine search to see if there is some info tidbit you’ve all overlooked, which changes everything. Try to see the forest rather than the trees. Also don’t get suckered into thinking losing some weight will make you perfect.
Libra – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Arthur Duncan – Monday pm is good for shopping the sales, especially for beauty supplies. Tuesday be cautious in accepting anyone’s word for something; verify thru independent checking and avoid wishful thinking. On the other hand, it is a day better spent in musical or creative pursuits. Artistic success comes this week in vibrant performance in any medium.

Scorpio – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Eleanor Powell – Scorpio rising, especially, enjoys playing with electronic or other unusual sounds and materials this week. Try to find sample sizes of paints, for example, to experiment with. You are also tempted to ruin the budget this month, so it is best to send others to shop with your list. Otherwise you’ll buy six when you only needed one!

Sagittarius – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Hermes Pan – The week is one long tussle, but you’ll find that the more you learn about the issues, the better you’re able to adapt to new realities. Otherwise your competition will use you for mopping floors! Darwin said those who survived were not the strongest or smartest, just the most adaptable. So make like a chameleon and adapt.

Capricorn – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Moira Shearer – The staff looks to you to keep a cool head, especially later in the week. You may deal with signing off on new office guidelines, which means delivering bad news to some. They’ll get over it if they see that the new rules are applied fairly. A harmonious duet gets the weekend off to a harmonious start with your spouse or other partner.

Aquarius – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Gregory Hines – Those struggling to maintain their energy levels and avoid injuries may benefit from gentle disciplines like yoga or tai chi. A strong teacher can give you a lifetime skill that is a lifeline to you. Daily practice, like the raindrops wearing down a stone, produce unbelievable results.

Pisces – Feb. 18-March 19 – Cyd Charisse – Stop the world, you want to get off! You’re not used to so much tug-of-war with you as the rope. After hours becomes your favorite time of day, because you are quite good at leaving the job behind. Your partner or significant other inherits the reins, and all in all, I think you prefer it that way.

September 14, 2007 at 1:19 pm

First Week September 2007

Many of you get wake-up calls about following your true calling in life. Those who answer that call, find the doors opening up to them. And those that don’t – well, doors keep closing. We all see the headlines about outsourced jobs, and I don’t want to get negative here. But investing in yourself and plugging away at your own sideline seems like the best bet. That sideline may or may not be a paid job, but it is the thing that you do best.
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 – Buddy Ebsen – You’re always a perpetual motion machine, but you often run so far ahead of the pack you look like a solo act. Saturday you finally get some teammates. The other pieces of the puzzle begin to fall into place, and allies come around to your way of thinking. Possible teammates: one financial backer, one woman. Don’t sign contracts till everyone is sure you can all see the project through.

Taurus – April 20-May 20 – Shirley MacLaine – That thorn in the side eases off this month. You can take a short breather, then midweek the calls and letters start piling up again. One reason people like dealing with you is that you give each person your full attention and make them feel it was no trouble at all. Creativity’s your middle name; maybe a class in creative writing is in the cards now. You can describe things in vivid sense impressions that jump off the page.

Gemini – May 21-June 20 – Bill “Bojangles” Robinson – Monday night favors face time with good friend or your significant other. Short meetings are often more productive than those that drag out, so don’t monopolize your friend’s time. Just have a coffee, and bounce your ideas off each other. Tuesday is tricky: emotions can run high in the morning and self-delusion too easy in the afternoon. A good week to try dream incubation. Go to for instructions. Link is here at

Cancer – June 21-July 22 – Bob Fosse – Remember being in school and shuffling from one class to another? Look back at that schedule now and be amazed at how much material you covered just by breaking it down to one hour per day. Now try to see if there is anything you could apply that approach to. See anything? (We all do.) Wednesday looks good for making a schedule for yourself. You’re unstoppable!

Leo – July 23-Aug. 22 – Mata Hari – An accidental meeting Tuesday morning starts a creative spark. You two have much to talk about and enjoy trading ideas. It is possible the new acquaintance becomes a partner in your artistic venture. This weekend marks a turning point in your life. Journeymen in all fields get that make-or-break opportunity.

Virgo – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Mitzi Gaynor – You have long been aware of the value of moderation. This week you decide to review your habits. Read the food labels. Look for articles on recent health and nutrition studies, local classes, and more. Update those favorite but unexciting recipes with modern flavor (and less sugar). Others may ask you to share information with their group. It may be so much fun you decide to start a web page or recipe blog.

Libra – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Fayard Nicholas – The phone starts ringing off the hook again. Everyone’s asking for you this month. They want your unique touch on their hairstyle or office decor. Expect more messages, meetings and speaking engagements. Presentation is everything, and you know how to create beautiful dynamic balance.

Scorpio – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Savion Glover – Wednesday and Thursday are good for revamping your schedule so that it meshes better with everyone in the office. You can coordinate your efforts so there’s less wasted time and motion. This doesn’t mean cracking down on breaks, it just means carving up the days so that efforts are more focused on meeting loads. This may mean a quiet hour, when calls are held so the team can push to meet deadlines.

Sagittarius – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Alexander Godunov – Monday brings an urge to overdo. Sag often buys things in multiples. Now this is OK for soap and socks, but that shirt in every color? Do yourself a favor and hide the plastic from yourself. Satisfy that big-dream energy in detailing the project you have. Some stars may choose to retire or reinvent themselves in a second career. It’s that kind of a week.

Capricorn – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Alvin Ailey – Consider bringing in a consultant or attending a seminar for a fresh viewpoint. Customers don’t grow on trees, but they often grow online. Get ideas on customer care and making your webpage more user-friendly. Sometimes the way to make your job more efficient is to cater to the ten percent who provide eighty percent of your business.

Aquarius – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Mikhail Baryshnikov – The weekend is good for both dance and incorporating your ideal into your actions. Are you a robber baron or a “Zentrepreneur”? Are your employees just well-trained hired hands, or are their talents encouraged to blossom? Do you hire exactly what you need, or do you “grow your own” top producers?

Pisces – Feb. 18-March 19 – Rudolf Nureyev – Make safety first early in the week. It never hurts to start the week with an overview of those little repairs that need doing. Make it a point to have a Plan B in place in case that grant falls through, or the roof needs repairs. By the end of the year you will find yourself having to work around restrictions of one kind or another. Fortunately you are a flexible person, and like improvisation.

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.
