Lucky Numbers for the Week of March 31, 2017

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 March 31-April 6, 2017:

1, 14, 23, 29, 31, 53, 65, 69

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 March 29, 2017

LovescopesPushing on the world may take extra effort now as your emotions can lead you to over-reactions in certain situations. Take a calculated risk but also expect a few boo hoo moments.

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Aries are great conversationalists now. But be careful of saying too much, too loudly. Even your whisperings seem to be broadcast globally. Just when you thought the microphone was off someone turned up the volume. When in doubt, sing!

TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Taureans now have to reassess how much they can reasonably spend, save and share whatever they have of any value. Be careful - Finances have snafus. Whatever you desire, suddenly the price goes up and fogs your better fiscal sense. Save it now.

GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Geminis find themselves awash in the social swim. Pack your swimsuit (or maybe not....) and get ready to dive in. But before this tidal wave reaches your shore, know that anything you say can and will be held against you. I guess you can only hope!

CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Cancers ache to donate, volunteer or otherwise give back to the community. Good! Give back and you shall receive. But don’t advertise or brag about your charitable efforts. Nobody wants to hear about it. They all want to see you in action. Get busy.

LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Let the good times roll. Leos are surrounded by pals who demand every bit of your attention now. Well, it sounds good in theory but you may find that there is too much frenzy. Solitude and quiet contemplation will seem like a slice of heaven.

VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Senior management will sit up and take notice of you, Gemini ... whether you want it or not! Put on your best face. This is the time to show them how it’s done with style. But I would lose those pinstripped pink leather mini shorts for the time being.

LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Expand your horizons. Libras are only limited by their time and finances. Whatever you do and wherever you decide to go, check and doublecheck your itinerary. The fates will have a way of sending your luggage to Podunk when you meant Paris.

SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Intense and sexy Scorpios may have a taste for the extreme now.And you are encouraged to take your sexual fever one degree higher. But before you heat your oven, remember to be choosey. Only one torrid love affair at a time, please. Oh drat!

SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Even single and independent Sagittarians will be tempted to settle down and domesticate this week. But before you say “I do” understand that settling down may require more compromises than you expect. Then get ready for happiness and bliss.

CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Capricorns find that work can be very fulfilling now. But the tasks may pile on faster and higher as you accept more projects. Yikes! Try your best to manage your priorities and shoulder your responsibilities. But just how much can you really handle?

AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Eat, drink and be very merry Aquarius. You boogie your way through the week. But be sure not to overdo the intoxicants. You may find yourself being carried off the dance floor in your cellophane shorts and lampshade hat. Ah, but what a statement!

PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Pisces get verbal support for their home projects from a variety of generous helpers. But will they be there when you really need them? You can make your surroundings a center of conviviality eventually. But be prepared to do more on your own.

Mercury Retrograde for April and May 2017

Mercury retrograde2Here is a fascinating appraisal of the upcoming Mercury Retrograde for this April and May 2017 by eminent astrologer Felissa Rose:

Mercury Retrograde

Beginning on Sunday, April 9 at 7:17 pm EDT the planet Mercury goes retrograde at 4 degrees 47 minutes of Taurus.  It turns direct on Weds May 3 at 12:34 pm EDT in 24 degrees 17 minutes of Aries.

Many people including those not really focused on astrology are familiar with Mercury being retrograde. They know that things, particularly mechanical, often go on the blink during this period, things that used to work perfectly suddenly develop a challenge to their previous operational state. So, some repairs might be necessary but if possible avoid purchasing anything mechanical as the object is likely to either be defective or have a flaw that you weren’t aware of.   During a Mercury retrograde my telephone answering machine came undone and I had to purchase a new one.   It worked well for quite a while but there was no way to turn off the voices of the people leaving a message when they called.   Unfortunately, it had to be positioned near the phone hookup in the dining living room area, so when we sat down for a meal everyone there could hear the person who called.  

If you’re having medical procedures or surgery while Mercury is retrograde that doesn’t have to be done right away. It’s best to put it off, as there tends to be more mistakes during. Avoid dental and physical checkups as well.   Things are more likely to be either missed or diagnosed incorrectly.

Mercury rules contracts and paper work, over the years I have seen mess-ups with both those things when signed or completed while Mercury was retrograde.  Signing on the dotted line before or after the retrograde would be a better idea.

Life goes on and people, speak, write and do business while Mercury is retrograde.  Expect delays and hassles,  we’re here to learn and this is a favorable time to reflect on what’s going on now and what happened before.  It’s a time to go over your goals and thoughts, interestingly many writers were born with Mercury retrograde.   They share their insights, perceptions and ideas with the written word… Those born while Mercury was retrograde feel comfortable going over what’s happening and what happened, and deciding whether to share it with others.

Whether you were born while Mercury was retrograde or not, use this period to think about your present and future.  Reflect on your life and take action when Mercury is no longer retrograde.  As spiritual teacher Adi Da Samaraj wrote, “Relax.  Nothing is under control.”

During 2017 Mercury, will also be retrograde from August 13 to September 5, and December 2 to 22nd.

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
The nice thing about being in the center of attention is that all eyes are upon you. But being in the center of attention can also be a challenge. You now have a rare opportunity to make an impactful first impression with an extremely powerful and influential person. How impactful is up to you, of course. Will you insist on wearing those plastic wrap peekaboos, Aries?

TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
If you decide to spend your time volunteering for a great cause (and you should...), do so closer to home. Adventure and some unexpected mishaps are unleashed on Taureans who wander too far from the core. Sometimes this is not a bad thing, but during this particular time an intriguing stranger may be a little too intriguing. When in doubt, seek familiar faces.

GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Geminis are naturally people oriented. Now, friendships may be temporarily ramped up to a fevered pitch. It may be that some people feel the need to guide you along the “right” path. Did I say “guide”? I meant push. This power struggle may result in a complete reassessment of the relationship. If you need to make some changes, make them now.

CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Your career path might have had its ups and downs and now you can expect more activity than normal around the office. Cancers are put to the professional test and emerge swimmingly well after the stormy waters settle. Your innate good sense helps you distinguish the fishy from the really foul. Follow your dreams no matter what; the rewards won’t be far behind.

LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Start your steamroller, Leo, and flatten any and all obstacles this week. Blaze new trails and build new structures for all to admire. But before you rev up your motors and start tearing up the landscape, check to see if there are any buried landmines and sinkholes. You don’t want to get your treads in a knot. Or maybe that adds to the excitement?

VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
An affair of the heart may come with a bout of heartburn. You are open for anything and are apt to turn up the intensity in any intimate foray. Where is your common sense? I think you know yourself, Virgo, but also try to know others even better now. Don’t get carried away by just another pretty face and have to face yourself in the mirror the morning after.

LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
This week brings lucky and expansive experiences in your personal relationships. While you may not always see eye to eye, compromise will bring its benefits with you-know-who for the time being. But you instinctively know that you will find a way to get what you need and want. Libras are charmers when they put their mind to it. Put your mind to it.

SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
How does anarchy spread at work? I guess it depends how much you allow your serfs to have free reign over your kingdom. Absent or distracted Scorpios find themselves quashing a rebellion. Develop a diplomatic agenda especially as the weeks continue. The more you push now means just that much more you will have to re-negotiate later.

SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Fun runs amok now. And you are roaring and ready for all the action. The temptation will be to bite more than you can chew but more than a mouthful is wasted. Don’t tackle anything (or anyone) gigantic now, Sagittarius. Just try to relax, lie back and allow yourself some time to recharge your creative spark. Meantime, avoid light sockets.

CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Capricorns find themselves surrounded by distant relatives now which can lead to honest talks and possible reconciliations You will also strive to find more balance in your home surroundings. So plan a big move or renovation or just move some furniture around. Anything that looks different will be refreshing and rejuvenating. Okay, add a pool.

AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Aquarians try to be diplomatic and charming but it may be hard to achieve with any finesse. What you think and say seem to occur simultaneously with powerful impact. Things will never be the same and maybe that is a good thing. Speak up and fight for your beliefs and be prepared to step on a few toes to get your point across. But watch where you point. Ouch!

PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Pisces are advised to hold on tight to their wallets for the next few weeks. You might overspend and empty the contents of your pot of gold. Money conjures its own magical power but you must decide if that power is used for good or for evil. Also, don’t brag about your finances. It may attract all sorts of shills, shysters and scroungers. Hey, wanna buy a bridge?
