ARIES   (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Do we smell someone cooking? Aries are hot hot hot. You are keen to share the love and may not know when enough is enough. So this is a problem? Probably not but before you singe your best assets, be discerning and slow moving. The choices that you make today will live with you through the end of the year. Or maybe it will just seem that way.

TAURUS   (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Relationships hit a high note this week. What is it about that certain someone that encourages you to overlook some glaring faults? While this too shall pass, don’t think about tomorrow and just enjoy it for what it is worth now. For those Taureans who are on the prowl for a catch, this is a great time to hunt and peck.... with the emphasis on the latter.

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
There is great fun to be had all through the week. Geminis should not let the grass grow under their feet and should get out and enjoy while the good times roll. Before you know it you will find yourself in the center of the action. Think of what you can do. Think of what can be done to you. By November you will still be coming off that high. Splat.

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Plan to spend more time on homebase. You may be inspired to move, improve or totally renovate to make your abode especially comfortable. At the same time the fates can bring family and other friendly folks to your door in droves. Cancers become home entertainers extraordinaire. The more the merrier and I see a very merry bunch. A bunch of what?

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
If there is something thrilling to be said, you can be sure that Leos will say it. Your eloquence is in top form. You are bursting with good ideas and the desire to implement them. So why sit around waiting for others to take the cue? Resolve to get your name in front of the movers and shakers. March forth even though it is October.

VIRGO   (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
They say that all that glitters is not gold but what do they know?  Gold and the delightful items it can buy are pretty enticing now. You are ready to do anything and everything to get as much loot as you can. Splurge and spoil yourself ... and a few select others now, Virgo. However, you will need to cash in a few favors next month when your loot is all looted. 

LIBRA   (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
It’s been a ton of fun but now prepare to hand over the mantle of popularity for a while and use the next weeks to quietly capitalize on what you have accomplished thus far. Libras should not mistake the glory for the gain - not you and not now. Enjoy the accolades but also demand the compensation. Make it pay off big time and spread the wealth as you grab it.

SCORPIO   (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Listen carefully. You will receive carefully coded messages that can no longer be ignored. Don’t second guess yourself, Scorpio. You gain self confidence and lose that old baggage that you’ve been schlepping around. Things fall into place. You know exactly what the expectations are and how to maximize your efforts. You have what it takes so take take take.

SAGITTARIUS   (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
There is nothing that you can’t accomplish this week. A light is turned on in every dark corner. Every mystery is unraveled (much to your personal delight) and all your secret admirers make their plans known. You have your pick and one will not be enough. Sagittarians are in there element for the next few weeks. Is it animal, vegetable or mineral?

CAPRICORN   (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Seek new friendships now. Even shy Capricorns manage to step into the limelight and greet the world with a flourish. Good. You have been feeling confined. Spend some time exploring new terrain, new social circles and new organizations. There is something about the roar of the crowd that gets your juices going. Don’t drip, unless requested to.

AQUARIUS   (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Feeling a bit under-appreciated in your career? You will be pleased to know that your professional stock rises this week. ‘Bout time! Aquarians can capture the corporate limelight and get a bit of press for their efforts. Once they hear the news, senior staff finds a very nice way to reward  you. But be sure to take it in cash rather than trade.

PISCES   (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
There is nothing tying you down (unless you like it that way). Pisces are itching to travel and explore vast new terrains. Don’t put it off. There is someone or something waiting for you on the other side of the world. If money and time are tight find ways of expanding your sphere of influence with cheaper alternatives. Cybersurf if you can’t surf in person.



Lucky Numbers for the Week of October 19, 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 October 19-25, 2012:

2, 14, 33, 47, 49, 56, 69, 71

 

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

Superfruit Pitaya

PitayaI am interested in healthy eating and drinking but I am not sure I would like Pitaya which apparantly tastes like a combination of strawberries (yum) and wheatgrass (not so yum). But it is a superfruit and these babies are supposed to b e extra healthy for you.

The pitaya (also called Dragon Fruit because of its appearance - not its taste) is "a softball-sized fruit that grows from cacti on the side of an active volcano in southwest Nicaragua." Its adherents say it has phytoalbumin which can "prevent the formation of cancer-causing free radicals." According to Business Week, this fruit cannot enter the US unless it is pulped and frozen because of fruit flies. (A source of protein I might add....)

The super-premium juice business that says it is "focused on healthy, exotic nectars," is now a multibillon-dollar industry, populated by" Coca-Cola's Odwalla, PepsiCo's Naked, and the 750-plus outlet smoothie bar Jamba Juice. And in 2011, Starbucks paid $30 million for Evolution Fresh, a cold-pressed juice company

At the heart of this industry is a heated race for new and ever more health-promoting ingredients," ranging from celery and kale to "superfruits" like mangosteens, pitaya, acai and, of course, pomegranate. However, Jeffrey Blumberg of the US Department of Agriculture says "superfruit" has "no scientific or regulatory definition," adding that just about any kind of fruit is "super" in some way. 

But why have to have it pulped? Why not grow it yourself? Amazon offers this Pitaya/Strawberry Pear - 3" Pot plant and 20 WHITE DRAGON FRUIT (Pitaya / Pitahaya / Strawberry Pear) Hylocereus Undatus Cactus Seeds

But as for me, I think I will stick to strawberries and blueberries.


Horoscope for the Week of October 15, 2012

Julia robertsWhen is too much, too too much? Possibly when dreamy Venus in Virgo  squares energetic Mars in Sagittarius. Minor tremors become earthquakes,  quiet interludes become basheroos and carefully concealed secrets go viral. So prepare to be jousted, rousted and thrown for a cosmic loop. Enjoy the ride.

(Julia Roberts has Venus in Virgo )

ARIES   (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
A simple excursion may evolve into an out of control adventure this week. Aries often brace for excitement. Oh be careful of what you wish right now! Plan all grand voyages carefully, sailor. The seas could suddenly become turgid and overturn your craft. Let’s hope there will be some helpful mates to give you a hand and pull you up.

TAURUS   (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Taureans are ready to take the sexual plunge but may jump in over their heads now. You are in love with love and give your heart to all comers. Try to be discerning and move in new social circles for your hunt. It would be a shame to ruin a perfectly good friendship by taking it on the wrong course. Love is in the air this week but it sort of smells like broccoli.

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Relationship issues are blown out of proportion now. There are many more demands on your time. Geminis may institute a zero tolerance policy and demand change but hold off. Try instead to exert some patience with partners and would-be partners. It would be a shame to spend the upcoming party season sipping champagne with your cat. Hmmm, or is it??

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Cancers find themselves buried under a load of paperwork on the job this week. And no matter how fast you work, you will find it difficult to keep up with the increasing demands of the marketplace. Before you give up and let things fall through the cracks, learn to prioritize, strategize and delegate. Escaping the humdrum is futile anyway right now.

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Party hound Leos think that they can go the distance but    now you must put that thought to the acid test. It’s possible that in the spirit of the moment, you will imbibe that one drink too many and spend the next day hunkering down and avoiding loud noises. Instead of feeling your age the day after, I suggest that you behave your age the night before. Good luck.

VIRGO   (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
This week highlights family affairs. Virgos are hankering to blow things out of proportion. Dramatics aside, there is nothing to be gained by pushing the familial hot button now. Instead of storming the scene, take a breath and draw your line in the sand a couple of months from now. In the meantime, think only happy thoughts, and avoid sourpusses.

LIBRA   (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Diplomacy may escape you this week as you may say the exact wrong thing at the wrong time. This can be very uncomfortable for you but you can still do it in a charming manner. Libras are best advised to keep their more revolutionary thoughts to themselves for the time being and tone their “must say” messages for a general audience. When in doubt, just smile.

SCORPIO   (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
This may seem like an opportune time to hit it big or lose it big in the financial arena. You are tempted to go for the big buckaroos without doing the necessary fact checking. Pyramid schemes seem like sure things. Yeah, right. It will be the truly wise Scorpio who realizes that all that glitters is not gold. In fact, it may not even be metal. Bite it to be sure...

SAGITTARIUS   (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Stand back and give the wild one some space when Sagittarians let loose this week. This exuberant out of control energy encourages you to boss the course in social situations. If folks don’t do things your way, tough! You are as subtle as a jack hammer and about as pleasant. Be careful of dominating others, unless, of course others prefer it that way...

CAPRICORN   (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Everything you have tried to hide in the past is exposed this week. As things begin to float to the surface Capricorns are encouraged and ready to tell it like it is. It feels quite cathartic to dump your cosmic garbage on the highway but be careful of throwing out too much; There is sure to be something (or someone) worth keeping if you take time to separate the real trash from all the posturing.

AQUARIUS   (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Compadres demand more of your attention and personal resources this week. Give till it hurts Aquarius - A generous favor to a friend in need will not be forgotten. Of course there may be some friends who become bottomless pits of need and greed. In that case, draw the line and cut the ties of dependency quickly. They may even thank you....errrr.... one day.

PISCES   (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Just when you thought your career was cruising on course, a strong gust of wind blows your roadmap out the window. And yet, surprises are good for the soul and lead you to new, different opportunities. Dust yourself off and try try again. Once you get your juices going, you catapult to new heights. Don’t bump your head on the glass ceiling, Pisces.
