ARIES   (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Anything creative or just plain fun has the capability to get totally out of control. Everything is spiky, scrappy and full of electric energy just waiting to be exploited. Those Aries who think they will be in for a quiet and contemplative time will be roused, rambled, rode, hogtied and branded. Hmm. Maybe that is your ultimate plan...?

TAURUS   (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Any home project that you have had on your planning board can now be set into motion. But be warned, Taurus, these simple projects are not what they appear to be. Nothing is simple, as you will find out. Everything will be big, bigger, biggest until it become totally over blown. Hold off on anything that demands a strict time deadline. All other stuff can run amok.

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
You think you are charming and compelling but check yourself out in the mirror as you deliver your personal pitch. Suddenly you see that you are much more effusive, dramatic and wild than you need to be. Will you still be able to talk your way into anything? Probably but that “anything” could be on the mouth of volcano. Ready, set, jump, Gemini!

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
There are no cheap thrills this week but that shouldn’t worry you, Cancer. In fact you have been carefully planning this spending spree for a while. So take the first step but keep a watchful eye on the bottom line. There is no sense wasting your money. But an occasional splurge is always a happy event. And spoiling a certain you-know-who is always worth it.

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
If you are meeting and greeting, you are able to make an interesting and impressive first impression now, Leo. But it could mean that you come on too strong and bowl over folks, overwhelming those who do not know you well. You could come off a bit pushy, overly dramatic and excessive. Of course nothing succeeds like excess... Hmm.

VIRGO   (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
There is so much going on behind the scenes that it can spill over onto the stage of your life. Are you prepared to have all of your secrets bared? If so then go for it and show it off, Virgo. If there are still a few things you would like to be kept secret, try to manage your press as best as you can. Everyone loves to know a few secrets. Try to keep it at a very few.

LIBRA   (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Your social life takes on a crazy whirlwind life of its own now. That is not a bad thing - your calendar fills up with all sorts of fun and interesting things to do and you have never felt so popular. But at the end of the day, you will want to form strong connections and friendships. Quality, not quantity is the secret to success, Libra. Are you ready to choose?

SCORPIO   (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Even if you feel like your professional path is on course, there may be things that happen now that will cause you to reassess or change direction. Take everything in stride, Scorpio. Any executive slights are temporary, even if it seems monumental. Keep your eye on the ultimate prize, the enormous pay check and eventual early retirement.

SAGITTARIUS   (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Any travel plans should be carefully reviewed lest it winds up as a big goose chase. Sagittarians who yearn to expand their horizons may see so much expansion that they get a headache. Take everything in stride and enjoy whatever crazy experiences the cosmos sets for you now. Who knows where you will eventually wind up? Or wash up?

CAPRICORN   (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Sexy Capricorns have energy to burn. But where will you burn it up? Channel your enthusiasm and oomph into more productive, possible long term relationships and not just for a quick singe. Connections that you make now could change the direction of your life and endear you to powerful people. Will you use your new found influence for good or evil?

AQUARIUS   (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Are partners giving  you what you need in a relationship? If so, celebrate and give them lots of attention and affection. Ramp it up. If not, use this time to re-connect, communicate and implement positive changes with significant others. Those Aquarians seeking new love can find it in the most unusual places with the most unusual people. And that is not so unusual for you!

PISCES   (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Any drudgery or routine task that you undertake now will go smoothly and will almost seem like fun. (I said “almost”...) You will never be as focused and efficient as you are now. So there is no need to procrastinate any longer, Pisces. Tackle that pile of things to-do and prepare for a cathartic spring cleaning. And think of how shiny your summer will be!



Lucky Numbers for the Week of February 27, 2015

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 February 27-March 5, 2015:

1, 2, 4, 18, 34, 40, 46, 70

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


LoveScope for the Week of February 25, 2015

ARIES   (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Put on your turban and peer into your crystal ball. It is now time to foretell your love life for the next few weeks. Look for qualities that mesh with your needs and desires and make a wish. Who do you see peeking out through the fog, Aries? Boo!

TAURUS   (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Friends try all sorts of maneuvers to get you to meet a certain someone. There will be furtive invitations and mysterious events designed to catch you unaware and at your natural self. Will you take the bait Taurus? Sure why not!

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
If your big desire is to make it to the top of the corporate heap, this might be the week that you can do it - or at least see a clearer path. You gain charisma as you gain power, Gemini, and can become a love magnet. Are you a positive force?

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Romance will come to you from a far off place this week so be prepared to reach globally for connection. If you are already in a relationship, this week could bring romantic travel or something spicy and hot to your door. Do I smell steamy crab?

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
You are roaring and randy this week, Leo. What will you do with all of this sexy oomph? Embrace the energy and enjoy every minute. Don’t sit home and get all caged in. Try to prowl your local hotspots to spot your quarry. Grrr.

VIRGO   (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Do you feel like you are in the right relationship Virgo? If so  increase the mystical connection between the two of you now. But it is also assessment time. If your gut is telling you to make a big move, you may want to do so.

LIBRA   (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Even little day to day tasks will be more enjoyable this week. And that is because you have a special helper. Chores can be more fun and even a bit silly romantic. They say four hands are better than two. Of course six is even better...

SCORPIO   (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
There will be more intimate tete a tetes this week but even secretive Scorpios will find dramatic ways to make their intentions known. Be creative in expressing yourself and see if you can attract an appreciative audience of one.

SAGITTARIUS   (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Do you have a kissing cousin who wants to get into y our act? Share the attention now with one of your many admirers, Sagittarius, and see where it can lead. Plan some evenings at home with a select guest list. Very select.

CAPRICORN   (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Speak the words of love and someone special will hear you and respond. Capricorns are very eloquent now. They speak from their heart and can be very emotional. You are too delicious to resist. Please don’t cause any heartburn later on.

AQUARIUS   (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Aquarians may have tight budgets but that will not dissuade them from splurging on special loved ones. Enjoy the week in all of its excess but remember that eventually the bill will come due. Then what? Find a well endowed benefactor!

PISCES   (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
You shine this week and are the apples of many eyes. You have lots of personal charisma and can attract anyone you decide you want to attract. What will you do with all of this adoration, Pisces? Bottle  it and save some of it for a rainy day.

Mindfulness Opera - Arguably Not For Everyone

I happen to like opera. And I happen to like yoga. But putting them together, for me,,is like sprinkling chocolate chips on your cheeseburger. Separately - they are great. Mixed together? Maybe not so great.

But if you are much more experimental than I, check out the first ever ‘Mindfulness Opera’ which features  4 Hours of Silence, Meditation and Yoga. Here are the details from yogadork.com :

Silent music to your ears? The Gods of yoga and opera have joined together for a match made in “an inner journey of mindfulness, with periods of meditation, rest, communal eating and a gentle yoga session” heaven.

As part of the four-hour long performance (note: that’s really long, even for an opera) audience members will be required to stay absolutely silent while mezzo-soprano Lore Lixenberg accompanied by seven musicians play around with the relationship between sound and silence.

The interactive show is called Lost in Thought, and it’s part of the London Barbican’s recently announced Fall 2015 programming aimed at challenging traditional boundaries with “ground breaking cross-arts collaborations.” We’ll say.

Lost in Thought is a Buddhism-inspired “inner journey of mindfulness” with the concept and music by composer Rolf Hind. It’s based on “the classic structure of an extended meditation,” a spokesman for the Barbican said. Hind is also involved in the research of mindfulness meditation and its relationship to the performing arts at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

“Exploring the points of contact between sound and silence in music and meditation, Lost in Thought will be an immersive musical performance in which the boundaries evaporate between performer and audience, between time and experience,” said Hind.

Ohh. Sounds beautiful and surreal. (Side thought #1: Is this what neo-arts-loving-intellectual fancy hippies are into now? Side thought #2: is marijuana legal in London?)

Mindfulness, meditation and a meal at the opera. Actually, that sounds like a great preparation for a four-hour nap! Oh, we kid. It’s certainly an interesting high-art concept, and while tickets will probably be out of our price range (besides the whole flight to London thing), we’re pretty sure we’d pay to see the lady and gentleman opera-goers experience this sort of hands-on event. After all of the meditation, yoga, listening to opera and eating vegan food, audience members will then have to clean their own dishes in a “communal performance,” which we imagine will be exceedingly difficult and fabulously entertaining with all of those white gloves everyone will be wearing.*

*We assume everyone in London still wears white gloves to the opera and sticks their pinky fingers out when sipping tea. Don’t ruin our dream.

 


Horoscope for the Week of February 23, 2015

Bruce willisWe feel a  bit more romantic and intuitive this week as the Sun enters Pisces. Will we send out our good vibes into the general cosmos or bottle it up to use later? Oh, let’s spread our cheer while it runs freely! Whoo hoo!

(Bruce Willis has Sun in Pisces)

ARIES   (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Be ready to give a hand to those in need, Aries. The more you give, the more you will eventually get. This energy goes beyond merely writing a check to a worthy charity or cause. It requires physical action and hands on intervention. Make a discernable difference in any community effort with real sweat equity. You may even find someone with equity to sweat with.

TAURUS   (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Taureans benefit from extending their outreach this week. You find that you can connect and understand the views of many different members and stratas of society. Create a sense of community and see how much power you can generate. Who knows where this can all lead? Have you ever thought of running for political office? You might be too honest....

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
The week highlights interactions with those of a higher authority and greater power. Sway the power elite, Gemini, and mold the corporate structure to make it more relevant and less threatening. A new lucrative path opens up and proves successful. Who knows? After the storm, you may find yourself on top of the heap and calling the shots. Assume the position!

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Cancers can tackle a global issue or travel to a new, exotic destination now. Your voice is carried to the far reaches of the earth so make yourself heard loud and clear. Who knows what peaceful solutions you can discover? You are the now the humanitarian of the zodiac. Hurry before you are tempted to revert back to old self-interested projects.

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Use this week to illuminate the dark corners of your soul and clean out any psychological debris that holds you back from success. Once you release your burdens, you are suddenly freed up for some fun. It all rolls out over the next few weeks so make some progress and savor the full intensity. Show ‘em what you’re made of, Leo ... and I don’t mean 98% water.

VIRGO   (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Virgos are advised to review and revise their one-on-one relationships this week. Are you getting what you need from others? Do you feel cherished? Connection, compromise and understanding are the keystones of successful partnership. Be mellow and don’t boss the course. Preemptive royalty is no longer in fashion. Strive to create a true democracy.

LIBRA   (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
You can run but you can’t hide, Libra. Life is abuzz with labor intensive activities. It’s a great time to finish off a languishing nasty task. Not only are you especially energetic, you are also interested in creating something useful. Put your efforts to work either on the job or in a personal pet project. There is work to be done and you are the one to do it. Oh goodie.

SCORPIO   (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Creativity and abundance are yours for the taking. Scorpios can use this time to put a new twist on the old theme of personal vs public enrichment. Auctioning off vast art collections for charity is a good example of the possibilities, but even us common-folk in our thrift store jeans can do our bit. Simply use your imagination and put out the mellow vibes.

SAGITTARIUS   (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
You are now more appreciative of the delights of home. There is no need to take on the world in the global arena this week. Put aside all external static and enjoy the quiet surroundings of your  palace. There are those Sagittarians who ache for the media glare, but if you take the time to recharge your batteries now, you can brightly light the world later.

CAPRICORN   (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
You speak from the heart and can emotionally attach any message to a series of actions. All Capricorns are fairly compelling speakers now. It is said that actions speak louder than words but you now have talents in all ways and by all means. Melt all hard hearts and expand your outreach. Do you go with the carrot or the big stick? Oh surprise us!

AQUARIUS   (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Having all the money in the world does not guarantee happiness  or fulfillment. It doesn’t even guarantee personal freedom. This week requires accountability and balance in the lives of Aquarians. Put your money and possessions to better use than merely defining your place in high society. The bottom line is  that enrichment begins deep in the soul, not in the wallet. Darn.

PISCES   (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Pisces are placed in the epicenter of the social storm. All eyes are on you. Take a peek in the mirror and review your “look” to note how the world sees you. Everything you do and say has greater impact. If you feel that you don’t measure up, don’t panic. Displaying a few vulnerabilities can be ennobling ... and maybe a bit manipulative. But then you know that.
