ARIES   (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)

There may be something about relationships that has seemed a little askew. But now, Aries, you bring all of your most important connections closer to a new understanding and calm. Enjoy the company of others and see how you can achieve nirvana by just being part of someone else’s life. No one is an island unto themselves.

TAURUS (APRIL 21-MAY 21)

Taureans who might have been feeling less than peppy may begin to feel fitter and more energetic. Maybe that is because you are mastering the art of health and wellness. Stress reduction is very important and your ability to harness your strength and maximize your efforts produces positive results. Focus and achieve.

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)

Any enjoyable pastime brings added benefits for you, Gemini. See how expansive you can be with your extra-curricular activities. Expand your knowledge base, plan a few parties and delve into the arts in a big way.  You might even try a bit of low risk gambling. But I would rather recommend ramping up the romance and festivities.

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)

Family gatherings bring unexpected harmony and relaxation. Cancers focus more on their home life and how they can make their overall surroundings more comfortable and harmonious in every aspect. Maybe that means a reunion. Maybe that means a renovation. The most important thing is to feel good where you’re living.

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)

Leos give out a big roar and get others to listen. You have found the magic solution to making your ideas heard and felt. So share your carefully crafted opinions and try to bring peace and harmony into not only your social sector, your neighborhood but also the world. Accept feedback and have that factor into your ideas too.

VIRGO   (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)

If finances have been tricky and unpredictable, now is the time to hyper focus on what you can do to bring your money situation into greater balance. Virgos are able to find the right advisor for their fiscal needs and can start to really build a solid foundation for the future. Anything is possible if you weigh all of the angles.

LIBRA   (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)

You are in the center of the social universe, Libra. Anything you do can draw an appreciative crowd. So prepare yourself to get involved, meet new people and generally make yourself well known. Any projects that you have been working on can now be launched. There are people who can help you along the way. Find them.

SCORPIO   (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)

There are happy things going on behind-the-scenes for you, Scorpio. Guardian angels are at the ready. What this means is that you can effect positive world change and change the course of events by doing good deeds and find commonality between two very different groups. Send good charitable karma out into the world.

SAGITTARIUS   (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)

Friends and acquaintances get closer to you more than ever, Sagittarius. That is because you now focus on social activities, group outreach and deeper platonic connection. Your mere presence brings greater harmony and happiness to others. Do what you do best and bring others into your orbit. You are a magnetic force.

CAPRICORN   (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)

Whatever you want to achieve in your career you can achieve, Capricorn. Not only have you been carefully cultivating those with influence and authority, you’ve also done the hard work to bring your efforts to their attention. If you still have a bit more to do in this area, do it now. You are especially charming. Make it work for you.

AQUARIUS   (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)

Explore the world, Aquarius. Your ability to make any travel experience extra special is on high energy. There will be those who just want to travel with you and feel your happy, positive presence. So expand your horizons and bring greater balance into your life while also bringing more harmony into the world. You will refresh.

PISCES   (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)

Pisces feel an extra need to connect on a deeper level with a certain special someone. See who makes you feel special and who provides you with the love you need and deserve. Then make sure that they know how you feel about them. One-to-one connections can be transportive and greatly fulfilling now more than ever.

Lottery ads tell us you only need a dollar and a dream. But it is also helpful to have a list of lucky numbers to help spur the good fortune ... or fortunes. So with that in mind, here are some lucky numbers that can be used in any helpful way. I gazed into a pool of water, Nostradamus-like, and contemplated the cosmos. Then I mixed the tarot cards and allowed the spirits to guide me to the cards that represent the lucky numbers for this week. Nothing is guaranteed but who knows ....?

I choose eight numbers because 8 is the number of of wealth.

Here are the lucky numbers for the week of Sept 23-29, 2022:

There are many ways to delve into your own consciousness to find luck and intuition. Try reading Dream Power/Improve Your Luck (Super Strength Series) and see if your dreams give you any clues and premonitions. Here's a guide to the best books available this month


UFO Festival

I just found out about this annual UFO festival in Exeter, New Hampshire on September 3 and 4. Maybe next year?

PlanetsNorman Muscarello was hitchhiking back from his girlfriend’s house near Exeter, New Hampshire in the early morning of September 3, 1965, when he saw pulsating lights in the sky. The US Navy enlistee froze in his tracks beside the Dining family farm on rural Route 150 as the lights hovered overhead, disappeared, then returned in throbbing red bursts. “There was absolutely no sound, other than the fact that I heard horses in Dinings’ field raising holy hell, kicking the barn. Crickets just seemed to quit,” he recalled in a 1980 interview. Petrified, Muscarello ran across the street and hid. A few minutes later, the lights zoomed away, leaving the 18-year-old alone on the road.

The Incident at Exeter, as it’s now known, is the force behind the annual Exeter UFO Festival. Following a pandemic-fueled hiatus, the celebration is back for its 10th anniversary on September 3 and 4, 2022. The entire commercial district of Exeter—population 16,000, with a quaint downtown lined with historic architecture clustered along the Squamscott River—gets in on the action. The Town Hall hosts a variety of talks and other-wordly swag tables. There are costume contests, kids’ activities, and even trolley rides that transport you to the site where it all began.

What makes the Incident at Exeter such an enduring example of UFO phenomenon, Blumenthal says, is that multiple people observed it. After Muscarello reported the sighting to the police, he and two police officers, David Hunt and Eugene Bertrand Jr., returned to the scene, where they all witnessed it simultaneously. Earlier in the evening, a woman reported to Bertrand that she had been followed in her car on a nearby road by a large object in the sky with flashing red lights. Similar sightings in the region the following day have led to the Incident at Exeter becoming one of the best-documented UFO sightings in American history.


Horoscope for the Week of September 19, 2022 - Retrograde Mercury Backs into Virgo

Mercury continues to go retrograde this week backing into Virgo from Libra. Whatever you thought was settled, may not be so firm after all. Be prepared to change your plans and review all set-in-stone arrangements.

ARIES   (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)

Aries are apt to take on way too much work. What seemed easy and doable before suddenly turns into an avalanche of stuff that needs to be done right now! Ouch! Be extra careful about accepting any projects and making promises that may turn out to be hard to keep. Smile and see if you can defer things and try to just relax.

TAURUS (APRIL 21-MAY 21)

Are you experiencing creative block, Taurus? Your mind was full of fascinating thoughts and artistic impulses but it may seem that these ideas have floated into the atmosphere and evaporated. Don’t sweat it, though. You can still have fun while you wait for your muse to return. Allow others to take charge and for now, amuse you.

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)

Family get-togethers may get a little out of control, Gemini. Invitations are either not received or their responses go astray. Nothing here is dire. It is just annoying. Follow up with errant relatives and see how you can best bring everyone together. Home projects in general may take a couple of tries to get going in the right direction.

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)

Even if you think that you are being very clear in your communication, you may experience some disconnects. What can you do, Cancer, to make sure that your message gets through? My advice is to think carefully and craft your message so that it’s especially clear. Then ask for feedback. This back and forth is short lived. Be patient.

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)

Your money seems to flow freely, Leo. Errr, maybe a bit too freely. Watch your spending and be sure that you have plugged up any leaky holes in your wallet. It is okay to enjoy life and treat yourself (and others) to a bit of extravagances but you don’t want to squander your resources. Thriftiness may be your best move for now.

VIRGO   (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)

If first impressions are lasting impressions, be sure that you are totally buttoned up when you meet new people this week. Anything or anyone new needs to start from a good place and can then go forward in a successful direction. That means that your every move has impact. You can do it, Virgo. But do it very carefully.

LIBRA   (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)

Any secret that you have tried to keep under wraps may be revealed in an unexpected way, Libra. This can cause some confusion but will be good for the long term. Mysteries and back room actions have a way of tripping us up eventually anyway. So allow a bit of personal release and see how your overall well-being can improve.

SCORPIO   (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)

Whatever you are planning with friends and groups of people may change or go in an unanticipated direction. Some may not get the message and others may reply but not to you. Confusion can stir up and frustrate you, Scorpio. But there is an easy fix; Get your itinerary completed and show it to all participants …  in person if possible.

SAGITTARIUS   (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)

Any long term or professional project may go a little off course, Sagittarius. Your ability to manage the course may need a reset. But this is not the time to give up. It’s the time to quietly reassess what it is you need to do and who you need to meet to get things moving forward. Research and plan now and outreach later.

CAPRICORN   (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)

Any travel plans undergo a big change, Capricorn. Reservations switch without you knowing it. Luggage can get lost. Whatever snafus can happen, may just happen. But welcome each with a sense of adventure. You never know how interesting this upcoming vacation can become. Also maintain a sense of humor…

AQUARIUS   (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)

Your love life may become one big confusing melee, Aquarius. Your acts of adoration might not be timed perfectly. Your romantic notes may fall into unexpected hands. Keep your heart open to the possibilities but also understand that anything is possible. Sometimes this can become a funny memory.  I guess we will have to see.

PISCES   (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)

Communication is very important in relationships. Now you may find that your communication may not convey how you really feel. So keep your patience, lower the emotion and listen carefully for clues in any deep discussion with partners, Pisces. Remember that sometimes, saying nothing is the strongest message of all.
