Your personal Pandoras Box of secrets flies open this week. You see things that you might have missed before and also have a gut feeling as to the best way to maneuver through any obstacles. Rams with something to hide find that there is, in fact, nothing to hide. Free yourself of anything that holds you back and keeps you down. Unless that is your “thing”. Ahem.

TAURUS   (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Open yourself up to new possibilities and friendships. Bulls find that as they navigate their world this week, they are drawn into brand new social spheres. Expect to be in contact with some strange and unique folks who can be very valuable to you in a variety of interesting ways. How interesting, of course, is up to you. How creative can you be...?

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
You move and shake with the best of them. So why not shake and bake all the way up to the top of the corporate food chain? Ambitious Twins are unstoppable. Yet, as unstoppable as you are, you won’t make your mark by steamrolling the competition. You have the ability to glide inperceptably by and ahead of the crowd. Be a fist in a velvet glove and start petting.

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
As much as you enjoy hunkering down at home, this could be an opportune time to get out and see the world. Your curiosity is piqued, Crab. Expand your horizons. See who and what is waiting for you on the other side of the world... or even across town. Mischief is on your personal agenda as is luxurious relaxation. Can you wind up combining the two? Let’s just see....

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Lions are in for a roaring good time this week and this is partially due to your insatiable lusty appetite. What a nice change of pace! Roam the plains. See who you can impress and then press. For those who travel in a pair, find ways to sparkle up your love life. A bedroom decorated in a jungle motif is one way. But a bathtub full of whipped cream might be even better.

Who loves you baby? You can afford to be very choosy because you have that certain something that drives others wild. Let’s count them and file them according to your preferences. Virgos seem overly romantic and mushy this week. And this is not a bad thing. Showing a little vulnerability will draw lovers to you like flies. Become a Venus flytrap....

Any detailed task seems to go much easier now. And that is because you have a gut feeling as to what will and will not succeed and can balance your time accordingly. You easily can choose those projects that have the greatest chance of easy completion. So do what you have to do and then rest on your laurels. Or is it to tell Laurel to get you a beer? I forget....

Scorps feel inspired and particularly creative. Let loose and have fun this week. And remember that fun can take on many forms. Maybe it will involve tossing a festive party. Or maybe you will discover a fun way to start your taxes. Whatever turns you on, jump into it with gusto. Too too soon you will need to get back to the nitty gritty job. Fleck it with sparkles today.

Turn your efforts to improving your home life. If your surroundings have become drab and boring, it is possible to spice it up or even make it into a relaxing refuge of mellowness. It is up to you. Of course it is always easier to make changes when you have a helping hand. Hiring a bevy of pool nymphs to help scrub your tub is not a bad way to start.

Whatever you say this week, say it with a wisp of drama. Caps can be dry orators but now you are able to turn up the mysterious charm and woo the masses. Whoo hoo! Don’t waste this opportunity complaining about the usual stuff. Use it to pave the way for your future success and create stepping stone advantages. Just be careful where you step. Oops.

A fool and their money are soon parted. This week, money takes on a different hazy hue. You think it buys happiness and may go on an emotional spending binge. My advice is to hold on to your dough and wait to see if you really, really need to buy anything “special” at all. Does the object of your desire retain its specialness at the end of the week? If so then jump in.

You are in  your prime. Not only do you have oodles of charisma, you can also situate yourself in the center of the most important circles. The spotlight is on you and adoring crowds gravitate to your personal heat. So now what do you do? Harness your power of persuasion and start to implement your grand plans. The sky is the limit, Pisces. Strap in and zoom.

Lucky Numbers for the Week of February 18, 2011

Lottery ads tell us you only need a dollar and a dream. But I think 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 wealth.

Here are the lucky numbers for the week of February 18-24, 2011:

17, 23, 25, 39, 42, 47, 50, 76

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

Welcome the Astrology Sun Sign of Pisces

Susan boyle On February 20, 2011 the Sun enters the zodiac sign of Pisces the Fish and welcomes a 29 day period of hidden aspects of our life, where we feel both liberated spiritually and where we might be a bit under the influence of illusion or even delusion.

Our creativity is sparked as is our intuition. It is a time for outreach and going wiht your gut. Pisces are among the most spiritual folks in the zodiac and are often the ones most engaged in charity work, community building, religious training and even the psychic sciences. 

(Susan Boyle has Sun in Pisces)

Pisces are incredibly sensitive and seem to have a sixth sense about things. Because they can be all knowing and seeing they can be prone to depression and mood swings. But generally, they are happy, soulful and artistic with a sense of playfulness that can lead to naive optimism and romance. They can be trustung - almost too trusting and willl have to learn to be strong and learn to say "no" more often.

They love to love and can hand their heart out to those who may not deserve it. But they are also resiliant and fall in love time and time again ... until they find the right partner and can settle down in their love nest. Spoil them because they will certainly spoil you.

Pisces love the water and may live near water, have a fishtank in their home or just take loads of luxurious baths, complete with mood music, candles and maybe even some incense. They are attuned to the moods of others so if you have your eye on a particular Pisces, be sure that you throw off some mellow vides and good loving thoughts.


Famous folks with Sun in Pisces are:

Cindy Crawford

Elizabeth Taylor

Jennifer Love Hewitt

Tea Leone

Nat King Cole

The Readjustment of the Zodiac, In the Name of Love

In today's New York Times there is a great love story about a man who was told by a tarot reader that his true love would be a Sagittarian. But it was not until he fell in love iwth a Capricorn that he learned something about the rotating eath axis and the zodiac. Read on and have a Happy Valentine's Day.


The Stars Realign. Do We?


THE tarot cards had long predicted that Matthew Foster was destined to fall in love with a Sagittarius. Then in 2009 he met Ben Mattson, a man he liked very much but who was a Capricorn.

“At first I thought, Oh, well, Ben is not the one I thought I was waiting for,” said Mr. Foster, 36, a playwright and theater director in Minneapolis. “But yet, we were still very compatible.”

For 15 years, he said, every tarot reader had produced the Knight of Wands, “meaning that the person I was supposed to hook up with was a Sagittarius.”

“It didn’t make too much sense,” Mr. Foster added.

Yet the fault, it seems, may not have been in him or Mr. Mattson but in the stars, or rather the alignment of the stars long used by astrologers. In December, Parke Kunkle, an astronomy professor at Minneapolis Community and Technical College, noted that the moon’s gravitational orbit had, over time, shifted the direction of Earth’s axis — meaning the North Pole was now aimed at a different part of the night sky, changing the signs of the zodiac.

Though the professor had merely reiterated basic astronomy, it was news to many people. His remarks in The Star Tribune of Minneapolis spun the zodiac like a roulette wheel. In a twinkle — and in time for Valentine’s Day — Mr. Mattson, 31, became the Sagittarius that Mr. Foster had been promised.

“Now it makes more sense,” Mr. Foster said. “Our relationship feels a lot more fated.”

Mr. Mattson, a student at Augsburg College in Minneapolis, noted that “a Sagittarius likes new beginnings.” In that spirit, he plans to move in with Mr. Foster in April. “All this changing-zodiac stuff is a nice thing to have happened to us,” he said.

Mr. Foster is happy about that. He is not happy, however, that he is now a Capricorn instead of an Aquarius. Not least because of the tattoo of the Water Bearer on his left forearm.

“Capricorns are supposed to have business acumen, but I can’t even balance my checkbook,” he said. “And as for my Aquarius tattoo, well, that’s still a bit of a problem because every day when I look at it, I feel like I’m living a lie.”

Professor Kunkle did not return telephone messages last week. (His office voice-mail greeting said it was “likely I will not return your call, but go enjoy the sky.”)

But in an interview with The Associated Press in January, he said that astronomers had known of the shift in Earth’s axis as long ago as 130 B.C., so the “new” zodiac is actually very, very old.

Old or not, many find it hard to part with a sign. Gloria Ponziano of Sarasota, Fla., who is dating a man named Doug Smith, said she would be spending Valentine’s Day with “Doug the Gemini, not Doug the Taurus,” despite what the rearranged zodiac suggests.

“Geminis love to communicate and love to please, and that’s my Doug, he loves to please me,” said Ms. Ponziano, 57, who owns a Web site, Morethanfitness.com, that focuses on mental and physical health. “A Taurus can be very inflexible, not always able to communicate well and unable to make up their mind, so Doug is certainly no Taurus.”

Asked what she and Mr. Smith, a 49-year-old Web site designer, were doing for Valentine’s Day, Ms. Ponziano hesitated for a moment. “If we’re doing something, he hasn’t told me about it yet,” she said.

Just like, say, a Taurus?

“Oh, no,” Ms. Ponziano said, laughing. “He’s a Gemini, I don’t care what the new zodiac says.”

Neither does Maria-Elena Grant, 54, an interior decorator who lives in West Milford Township, N.J., with her husband, Charlie Grant, 65, whom she knew and loved for years as a Libra. Suddenly, she found herself married to a Virgo.

“My husband is such a Libra because Libras weigh everything they say, every decision they make,” Mrs. Grant said. “Now, Charlie is a loving man, so he definitely has some Virgo in him, but he’s a Libra all the way.”

Mrs. Grant, who had always thought of herself as a Pisces, didn’t think much of her new status, either. “I’m not so happy now to find out that I’m an Aquarius,” she said. “After all of these years, it’s tough to give up your sign. Pisces are very mellow and analytical, like me, and anyone who is an Aquarius is more of a spitfire- type personality. If I wasn’t so analytical, I don’t think I would have accomplished my academic goals. I don’t think I would have earned a degree in chemistry and math, and an M.B.A.”

She paused. “Now there I go sounding like a Libra.”

Kathy Biehl, a lawyer and astrologer in Jefferson Township, N.J., said Earth’s wobbly orbit was a problem for astrologers as far back as 1,800 years ago. Some of them at the time devised a new zodiac based on the seasons and the relationship between the sun and Earth.

“This so-called new information about the Earth’s wobble has nothing to do with how Western astrology works,” Ms. Biehl said. “The Western zodiac does not use the constellations,” she insisted. “And as a result, no one’s astrological sign has changed.” But don’t tell that to Mr. Foster. “My Sagittarius was always in the cards,” he said.
