ARIES   (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Your career takes off. And this is something that you have been working on for while. Can you control the direction or your ascent? It will be hard to control the fates as what you and the powers-that-be do will be unpredictable based on emotional reactions. But that is part of the fun and excitement. Keep telling yourself that, Aries.

TAURUS   (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
You need to get out of your usual routine, Taurus. And what better way than to pack up your stuff and travel. If you have the time and the money, a last minute trip could be beneficial and with unexpected rewards. If you need to stay close to the home fires, heat up and expand your horizons through study, exotic food, film or folks. Get hot.

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Love is complicated and especially so now. Maybe its because you treat your amours like a smorgasbord and have piled too much on your current plate. You are a charmer and attract many admirers. It is not too late to change or temper your diet, Gemini. Keep your sweet tooth and nibble appropriately. Just don’t serve Christmas fruitcake.

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Relationships can heat up and melt the snow. So nurture and treasure your partner and find creative ways to celebrate the season together. Cancers who are currently seeking a special someone will have their choice of possibilities. But you have to get out and look. Don’t sit by the fireplace and wait for Santa to stuff one in your stocking.

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
There will be a temptation to put all your energies into your job now, working hard and long into the night. But don’t.  Try to find the balance between the demands of the job and the joys of celebration Take time out for a festive office party or, even better, an out-of-office party. All work and no play makes Leo lions frazzled felines.

VIRGO   (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Virgos are the toasts of the town and the party meisters of the moment. Savor every event and brand it with your own personal charm. Eat, drink and be very merry. Too too soon you will have to refocus your attentions on the bottom line and find ways to fund your assorted fun times. In the meantime, find a well endowed benefactor to cushion you.

LIBRA   (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Gather family members around the hearth Libra. Find ways to reach out to even distant relatives to join in. There may be some out of control emotional encounters but that just adds to the memories as the year progresses. But avoid any home improvements at this time. You think you like the walls red and green but just wait until the spring when the light changes.

SCORPIO   (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Do you have a pithy opinion to share? Hold off for a few weeks, Scorpio. You never know how your words will be received and the impact it will have on unintended recipients. Plan your strategies instead and see how you can quietly implement your personal goals unobtrusively, craftily and ultimately successfully. Vie for the element of surprise rather than front page news.

SAGITTARIUS   (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
As carefully as you may plan your finances, the next few weeks  could bring a change in circumstance where you invest with your  heart rather than your head. Quick and easy money is not what it appears to be, Sagittarius. So tuck into your current nest egg and sit on it for a while. Celebrate the holiday frugally. Sip the champagne but don’t bathe in it. 

CAPRICORN   (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
How many parties can you attend this holiday season? Try for as many as possible to meet, greet and sweep folks off their feet. Capricorns are primed to advance their agendas, set long postponed projects into motion and reap the rewards of all their hard work. Emotions can also run high. Will you lose your heart under the mistletoe? You can only hope.

AQUARIUS   (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
A secret admirer could become obsessed with you. So be on your toes Aquarius, and don’t give your heart just anyone. And yet, the excitement and mystery of an enfatuation could make this holiday month one to remember. You can also become more involved in charitable efforts. You know it is better to give than to receive. At least that is what they say.

PISCES   (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Plan a few festive get togethers and join some new clubs or groups. See how you can expand your social circle into a huge revolving globe. Pisces will meet many new and interesting folks who can be important and helpful to you through the next year. So take the lead, get more involved and showcase your immense talents. Deck the halls.


Lucky Numbers for the Week of November 29, 2013

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 November 29-December 5, 2013:

12, 28, 30, 47, 70, 74, 77, 79

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

Psychic Sylvia Browne Dies at Age 77

Sylvia Browne was a well known psychic who even helped police track crimes. According to the announcement on her website:

World renowned spiritual teacher, psychic icon, author, and lecturer Sylvia Browne passed away at on Wednesday, November 20, 2013 at Good Samaritan Hospital in San Jose, CA. Born October 19, 1936, Browne was 77 years old.

For nearly six decades, Sylvia Browne dedicated her life to helping others as a spiritual guide through private readings, past-life regressions and prayer groups that spanned the globe. Having been called upon to assist individuals, families, and law enforcement agencies across the U.S. and Canada on criminal investigations, she worked tirelessly as an advocate for justice, receiving several commendations for the positive impact her contributions provided.

Browne’s certainty in the existence of reincarnation remained a central theme in her philosophy and she believed it held the key to understanding life, though never imposing her values upon anyone. Often, she had been quoted as saying, "Take with you what you want and leave the rest behind."

A best-selling author, Browne published over 50 works throughout her life with 22 appearing on the New York Times Bestsellers List. She was also a frequent guest on radio and television shows including Larry King Live and The Montel Williams Show, where Browne’s appearances quickly became a popular weekly highlight among regular viewers for over 17 years.

But - According to the Huffington Post, Browne's predictions were not always accurate. As I always recommend, take all professed psychics and channelers with a grain of salt. Sometimes they offer you some clarity but no one can predict with certainty.

ARIES   (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
This is a perfect time for Aries to expand their knowledge and improve their brainpower through coursework and possible travel. You retain what you now learn and can out it to good use. Get a charge by surrounding yourself with new stimuli. (No names please!) Any legal entanglements untangle now. Show your briefs and rest your case. Uh, is it time for a recess?

TAURUS   (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Hot Taureans raise the general temperature and can get the audience sweating. You gain confidence and know how to package yourself beautifully. This aptitude almost guarantees that you will get the lover of your dreams. But don’t sit home and phone it in. For best results, you have to go out and shop in person. Squeeze, smell and pluck the best of the bunch.

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
All sorts of relationships are highlighted now. Geminis have a tendency to get caught up in various work and personal contretemps while ignoring those close to them who can help. Don’t take partners for granted; this is the time to show them that you care. Looking for love? The opportunity to meet someone special is at hand. Keep your eyes open 

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
You need to take some unexpected actions especially at work. Cancers may find themselves eating at their desk, slowly putting on the pounds and working longer and longer hours in their drudgery. Boo hoo! Time for a change! Prioritize and delegate to get your desk cleared and body up and buffed. I know you can do it, you ultimately sexy thing, you.

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Let the music and festivities begin this week. It’s time to get down and party hearty, Leo. Show your inhibitions and restrictions the exit door. Know though that as much as you enjoy a good time, this can also be a time of unparalleled creativity and artistic output. And that is much more productive. Make a decision. Do I smell a masterpiece ... or is it just stale beer?

VIRGO   (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Forget about putting off your home improvements any longer Virgo. You have just run out of excuses. Overwhelming urges to spruce up your surroundings and make it more in tune with the true you cannot be ignored. Everything from furniture to family will have to fall into place... or else. You’ve nothing to lose but your macrame plant holders and pink flannel ottoman.

LIBRA   (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Inspirational ideas run rampant and so should you. Libras see the landscape clearly and seem to know exactly what to say now to get events rolling in the right direction. Roll on; we are coming into a major professional life cycle for you and this is the time to advance your cause. Frame your arguments, line up your pins and bowl them down. Spare nothing.

SCORPIO   (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Scorpios begin to reassess their personal values vis a vis their financial status. You may find that all that glitters is not gold... or maybe it is? Chart your monetary course in the framework of your deeply personal needs. If that means splurging on a hot little import, so be it. If it means socking it into an already bulging endowment, who am I to disagree?

SAGITTARIUS   (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
You are in your glory this week. Sagittarians can make their dreams come true as all eyes turn their way. This is a fertile time of year for you so give it the best shot you’ve got. Begin new things, meet new folks and harness new energies. It’s also time for a little personal sprucing up. Polish those arrows. You want to make a pointedly great first impression.

CAPRICORN   (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Capricorns can go with the cosmic flow. Your mind expands and is open and clear. You can feel intuitive and spiritually cleansed. (Or maybe its the wine?) Rub your crystal ball and see what you can divine. Then, relax and reduce stress through yoga or meditation. I’ve heard that posing naked in the window maximizes feng shui... or something along those lines.

AQUARIUS   (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Fans come out of the woodwork. You are the center of attention and have to learn to parcel out your time judiciously to keep up with increasing demand. Don’t be shy. Aquarians must not waste time plugging holes in the same old circles. Explore beyond and make it memorable. How memorable is the question. Will you remember it all in the morning haze...?

PISCES   (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
All Pisces have the tenacity to go the distance in their careers now. Good thing too; You may have begun to feel like it was time for a monumental change. Excellent transitions are possible but great advances can also be garnered right where you are currently working. Pick and choose, my choosy friend. You deserve the best, even if you don’t always think you do.
