George clooney mars in leo
We are no April Fools this month especially with the march of planets through strong constellations of Aries and Taurus. Know where you are and where you are going. When in doubt, pretend like you know what you are doing and no one will question you.  With age comes wisdom!

ARIES   (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Even if money is a pressing concern, it squeezes you a little less now. That is because your charisma seems to generate the generosity of benefactors. Milk it for all its worth, Aries, and invest the spillage into soild and well researched portfolios. You never know when you will need that  extra fiscal oomph.... and exactly how much oomph you will really need.

TAURUS   (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Move with the big movers and shakers , Taurus. You need to find new herds to join and new pastures in which to roam. Not only can you spread your influence, your ample, generous personality can command any crowd. Use it for good and not for petty and selfish purposes. Next month you may need to rely on the kindness of strangers and then what?.

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
The scuttle is that Geminis are the ones to know. They have powers of persuasion and are a link to everything that is good. Is that true? No matter what you think and feel, you can glide on the wings of great press and unforeseen lucky graces. Go with the flow and allow yourself to be wined and dined. All too soon you will be back to grabbing anything you can get.

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Pals are working for your benefit so allow them some space and freedom to do what they want and need to do for you. In fact, use this time to expand your social circle beyond your clique. Join new organizations and social groups. You seem to have what it takes to take on anything and anyone. There is someone in particular who has big plans for you. How big is big?

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Even though you feel like a rat in the middle of a big treadmill, there is a payoff at the finish line. Leos think that all their hard efforts have been ignored and are unappreciated by others but that is wrong. They know what you can do. In fact there may be some additional responsibilities added to your to do list. Oh goody. But where is the fame and the glory? Next month....

VIRGO   (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
You are an international sensation now. Immerse yourself with anything regarding the internet and social media or do it the old fashioned way and just travel. Find any excuse for a vacation. It has pallative benefits. Virgos yearn to expand their borders. Don’t sit and wait for something to happen. Go for a land grab and manifest your destiny.

LIBRA   (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
You charmer you. Not only do you ooze sexuality, you can maximize every deep encounter to your personal benefit. Lovers are powerful figures who enhance your life. Legal issues resolve to your benefit based partially on your charm. Even mundane projects become epicenters of creativity and opportunity. May this month last forever for you.

SCORPIO   (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Relationships improve dramatically now and not a moment too soon. Scorpios who are looking for a special someone can find them... if they get out there and look. Those currently in a partnership find that romantic delightful moments increase exponentially. Don’t waste this time on dredging up the past. Look to the future .. and any lovely present that you can offer.

SAGITTARIUS   (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Sagittarians seem to have more pep and energy this week. Maybe that is because you have found new ways to get rid of all your excess “stuff” whether that means little jobs, tasks, clutter or  issues, that drains your energy reserves. Good, because you will soon have other, more enticing things to take up your time and excess energies. No names please!

CAPRICORN   (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
You are feeling pretty lucky now. But if you have the choice of being lucky in cards or lucky in love, choose love. Gambling may seem easy but it has little long term impact. Love on the other hand, goes from light to heavy as the month progresses. Capricorns with a penchant for drama can ramp up their creativity. Body painting with food is a thought.

AQUARIUS   (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
It feels so cozy at home it may be hard for you to get out and mosie around town. But try to find time for both cocooning and gadflying about. It might be a good time to plan for some extensive home renovations or even a festive basheroo or two. For those Aquarians with family issues, tackle them now. You are especially diplomatic .. for a change.

PISCES   (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Even a stray thought can take on monumental proportions. So nurture any idea, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem. You have a wonderful way of expressing yourself and hold boundless enthusiasm that is contagious. Remember: Little acorns grow into big oaks and tiny sparks of genius can light the world. Yes, even you Pisces.

 


Lucky Numbers for the Week of March 30, 2012

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 wealth.

Here are the lucky numbers for the week of March30-April 5, 2012:

16, 17, 24, 29, 40, 56, 61, 65

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


Seven Most Mystifying Fortune Cookie Sayings

 

Mystifying-fortune-cookie-sayings

Elizabeth from BestOnlineColleges has sent me a funny and engaging article on the 7 Most Mystifying Fortune Cookie Sayings. I have has a few strange fortunes in my day but none as strange as these. Enjoy!

 

Originally made by hand using chopsticks, fortune cookies have become more than just dessert. From early fortunes that feature biblical sayings or aphorisms from Confucious and Lao Tzu, to witty and absurd sayings, fortune cookies have been customized to include everything from weddings to birthday theme parties. Fortunes now also include "lucky" lottery numbers, jokes, hackneyed advice and fun quirky statements that we like to add "in bed" to at the end. The ones that are cryptic and outrageous are especially a pleasant surprise at the end of a meal. Here, we present you the seven most mystifying fortune cookie sayings of all time.

 

 

 

 

  1. If a turtle doesn't have a shell, is it naked or homeless?

    This saying may initially make you think "what?!" But on second thought, it's a question worth pondering. Let's just hope the turtle always keeps its shell. Poor thing.

  2. You are about to be met by a force of nature. May the force be with you.

    Is this an omen followed by some reassurance? Possibly a Star Wars reference too? One thing's for sure, this fortune is mysterious and we can't help but wonder just what the "force of nature" could possibly be.

  3. What came first? The chicken or the egg?

    More than an age-long causality dilemma, this metaphor has found its way onto fortune cookies to confuse us. No one can really answer the question, so it seems the metaphor could be related to prioritizing what comes first in our lives (long shot).

  4. Your present question marks are going to succeed.

    Any fortune that highlights succeeding in anything makes us feel good, so this one is a mysteriously good-feeling fortune, settling our present worries, whatever they may be.

  5. The fog of today conceals the darkness of your future.

    This fortune sounds more like a misfortune: what exactly is the darkness of the future? Perhaps this fortune cookie is foreshadowing something bad to come. Either way, the ominous message makes us a bit weary.

  6. Keep your goals away from the trolls.

    There are many "trolls" in life, but generally it can be a label for any kind of sabotage, which should be avoided at all costs. This fortune reminds us to be cautious who we share our goals with, as negative people can tell us a million reasons why we shouldn't pursue our dreams, while positive people will get us excited and motivated to reach our greatest potential.

  7. I know your dirty little secret.

    Nothing is more eerie than that feeling our dirtiest secrets are being revealed, even more so when we don't know who knows, or how much they know. This fortune seems more like a warning and borderline evil because it leaves us with so many questions.


Horoscope for the Week of March 26, 2012

Alec baldwin
The Sun enters Aries and conjuncts Uranus this week. We are pushed into a vortex of energy, pluck and confidence. Mix it up and not a moment too soon! Ready for fireworks? Keep on poking those hot embers, honey.

ARIES   (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Expect considerable commotion occurring in anything new and public this week. While some of the faint of heart may prefer to remain on the sidelines, Aries with greater courage may venture into unchartered territory and create an unintentional social stir. You’ll have ‘em talking for weeks, so give ‘em something meaty to talk about. Or is it to tweet about?

TAURUS   (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
If you get your wires crossed, take a long deep breath and try again. Taureans have cloudy crystal balls this week and should let others do the divining. As long as others are in charge of the excitement, why not use this time to explore relaxation techniques like meditation, yoga or even hypnosis? Clear your mind and prepare for battle next week. Ommm.

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Geminis can generate excitement in any crowd this week. So get involved in as many group activities as you can handle. Some friends may get a little too nosy for you. If you tire of being scrutinized and second guessed, find a few fresh faces to impress. And soon the old crowd sniffs up new business elsewhere and moves out of yours. Better steer clear of garlic.

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Cancers can face a changing professional landscape as the sands shift. While the fates could create a few potholes in your superhighway of success this week, these are temporary. Your temptation is to act or react, but just hang tight along with the crowd and wait. This corporate situation will soon downsize and you’ll be in a good position to capitalize on all of it.  Heh heh.

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Leos have itchy paws and want to expand their outreach but surprises are in store. There may be something - a cash situation, a schedule snafu or a legal entanglement - that needs to be addressed first. Step back and survey the landscape. A nip here and a tuck there and you are all set. By next week you will be raring to get up and go, go, go.  Uh, go where?

VIRGO   (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
All dressed up and waiting for the doorbell to ring? Don’t sit around and pout. Take it to the streets and see who passes by.  Virgos may yearn to scratch a low down dirty itch but may find there is no suitable scratcher available. Wiggle around until next week when your urges can be unleashed in all their hot and heavy fury. Or something like that.

LIBRA   (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Partnerships may hit a small nit picky snag this week. Libras may feel romantic and supportive but the feeling may not be mutual (or vice versa). Keep your sunny side up as your commitment is tested. Remember that Rome wasn’t built in a day so don’t expect quick fixes. Of course a few quickies here and there may not be such a bad idea....

SCORPIO   (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
You’ve been trotting down a primrose path at work for quite a while, Scorpio. Now be prepared to step on a few flowers as your nerve takes control. A new demand here or there could have consequences though so be persistent but don’t be pushy or threatening.  On the bright side, if you’re angling for new employment, this could clear the way.

SAGITTARIUS   (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
When is enough, enough? Hard to tell. Fun has a way of getting totally crazy and out of hand this week so perhaps it’s best to stow the stash and settle into a easy chair while the raucous party rocks on in the next apartment. Sagittarians are like bulls set loose in a china shop. You break, you buy so don’t forget to bring your credit card and your knee pads.

CAPRICORN   (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
If your home surrounding isn’t all it should be, it’s fine to begin to explore new options. But don’t rush into anything major or final just yet. Capricorns are awash in great decorating ideas but sometimes the best ideas on Monday are no nos by Friday. Sure, crushed red velveteen bucket loveseats make a statement, but do you really want to be quoted?

AQUARIUS   (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
The sages say that a picture is worth a thousand words. Heed their advice and let fingers to the talking rather than flapping your jaw. Aquarians become a little too expressive for their own good this week, saying things they would normally chew on for a while and swallow. The secret is not to bite off more than you can handle. Maybe you can go on a word diet?

PISCES   (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Somewhere along the line, a bear has trampled on your carefully constructed financial portfolio. Don’t panic, Pisces; this is just a fleeting fiscal sting. Before you panic and sell short, chalk the rollercoaster up to market fluctuations and bide your time. You’ll be the master of both the bulls and bears by next week at this time. So pack your whips, pardner.
