ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
You career may be due for a massive change or adjustment as your carefully planned professional path suddenly shifts. But don’t panic, Aries. Sometimes the fates deliver just what you need most, even if it requires greater patience and balance on your part. You may ultimately be happily surprised at the direction your life takes when you go with the flow.

TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Expect a shocking revelation to cross your path that will not only shake up your world view but also catapult you into international fame ... or something like that. Taureans like their comfortable space but the fates now conspire to launch you into another orbit. Will you rub elbows with exotic celebrities? Will you hob nob with global glitterati? Just wait and see!

GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Geminis can be forgiven if they mistake a friendly signal for a more passionate one. You think that things are on an even keel but your love boat can tip. Keep a sense of humor as your platonic and intimate relationships get mixed up. Who knows what can happen when the excitement builds in intensity and passion. Will you get caught with your pants down? Uh oh!

CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Trying to balance your career obligations with those of partner’s can result in a big to do. Stress can build. Everyone wants something big and time consuming from you and it may get totally out of hand. Cancers can tip the scales if they try too hard to please everyone. My advice is to only please yourself. Others wills imply have to adjust.

LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Get your priorities in order, Leo. Then forget the whole thing as priorities shift and take on a wacky life of their own. You may decide to escape from all of your responsibilities and explore new vistas and make new discoveries. Some things that you will discover will be surprising. But that is what happens when you take a calculated risk. No risk, no reward.

VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Fun will have a way of getting totally out of hand before you realize it. Virgos are invited to all of the hot parties and big events. It may be too much all at the same time. But that is what will make your life so exciting, extra romantic and completely creative. Go with the cosmic flow and see where you wash up on shore. Will it be a sand bar?

LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
This seems like the right time to make some big domestic decisions. But any decision you make could be in store for a change or a reappraisal. Consider what you really want in a relationship. Libra. Then toss it out the window because the fates have other plans for you. Ever hear about a liberal Democrat marrying a conservative Republican? Just wait!

SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
You will try to be very clear in your instructions at work. But be prepared for no one really understanding or listening to you. Chalk it up to the stars, Scorpio, and give your bossing around a rest. It will be better for you to de-stress and relax at work if you can. Let others do their thing and you do yours. Ultimately it will all come together. I think.

SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
As much as you love having a good time, check your budget to see if your partying ways are affordable to you now. Everyone wants you in their corner. Sagittarians are known for their generosity but at some point you have to view the bottom line. Things will have a way of getting totally out of hand. Maybe that is how you really like it??

CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
You will find yourself in the center of all of the attention now, Capricorn. This can feel great or make you feel a bit uncomfortable. The main thing is that you have an escape sanctuary when you can rest, meditate and recharge. But your home life may be more excitable than you would like right now. What to do? Go with it all and see where life leads. Maybe to nirvana.

AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
As much as you would like to keep a secret, there will be many chances for you to accidentally spill the beans. So forgive yourself in advance for any indiscretions and try to forget anything that you cannot share. You might also not be as eloquent as you would like to be. Aquarians can speak from the heart. But beware of giving others heartburn.

PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
You feel very popular now but be a bit wary about lending or spending with friends. Your money could evaporate faster than you think as the festivities rev up and everyone joins in. Pals mean well but they can get you totally caught up in the moment (and the expense) of fun. Join in but try not to boss the course of events. You will wind up with the bill.

Lucky Numbers for the Week of December 29, 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 December 29-January 4, 2017:

6, 9, 11, 20, 26, 50, 53, 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


A New Age Interpretation of Christmas

MagiHere is my annual Christmas musing about the three wise men of the Christmas recounting. Wise men in those days were the astrologers. So it was the configuration of the planets and the astrologers who interpreted them that set things in motion and spread the events to the world.

The original interpretation was that there would be a momentous moment that would change the world as evidenced by the positioning of the stars. The Magi - the three wise men (astrologers?) followed a star to the city of Bethlehem. Whether or not you believe in Christianity, you would have to admit that the events predicted by the Magi did change the world.

Also, the Magi brought Frankincense and Myrrh which are religious aromatherapy essences. Frankincense represents Christianity and Myrrh represents Judiasm. It all connects....

Merry Christmas to all!


Horoscope for the Week of December 25, 2017

Elvis presleyThe brilliant Sun wends it way into practical Capricorn, joining Pluto and Saturn and, later this week, Venus. We can become more serious, cautious and maybe even a bit, ahem, frugal. I say that it is fine to water the eggnog but don’t scrimp on the gifts.

(Elvis Presley had Sun in Capricorn)

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Don’t be surprised if you begin to feel like you are working hard but enjoying it less. Work seems to pile higher and higher. But be cheerful Aries. The work you do now will make you more practical and ultimately much more successful. Hopefully those warm thoughts will be enough to make you feel better as you nurse your coffee at your desk.

TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Taureans embark on global endeavors that bring them status, money and a confidence boost. You have the opportunity to make huge strides in the world arena. Don’t sit at home and wait for Santa to arrive. Make your mark on the world stage and meet new, exotic people who will help you in your ascent. Pack the mistletoe. You never know...

GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Even Geminis need a little cuddle now and then. This week brings you more than just a warm handshake or a simple sit down on Santa’s lap. You are sexy and willing to pour your special oil where needed. This winds up working well for you in the long term. You have your choice of New Years dates. Will it result in more new years resolutions?

CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Cancers yearn for the perfect relationship and can craft a great one now. Those currently in a relationship smooth out the rough edges. Those seeking connection feel a spark as they move through the social circuit. See how your special someone reacts. If the feeling is mutual, find ways to lift the happiness and reduce the stress. Get creative...

LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
You have a lot on your holiday plate. So much so we should begin to call it a platter. How much can you handle and still keep up the high quality? Give yourself a short break, Leo, and see if you can prioritize and possibly delegate. Once you focus, there is nothing you can’t achieve. No matter how lofty, silly or impossible it may first appear.

VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Virgos become the life of the party and the sooner the better! Put on your holiday hat, grab some ornaments and dance with the crowd. Not only do you have fun despite yourself, you increase your energy level, possibly plug into a little romance and increase your overall luck. Turn that frown into a smile. Folks will wonder what you are really up to.

LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Find unique and delightful ways to entertain at home now. Libras have a flair for creating the ultimate holiday celebration and can do so with ease. Gather kindred souls together and create a warm and conducive atmosphere. There is plenty of time to travel far and wide early next year. For now, hang your tinsel and prepare for Santa.

SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
You can now easily focus on any next steps in your life. Change is afoot so don’t trip out of the starting gate. The most important thing to remember is that careful planning is essential. Scorpios have a few things on their mind and are ready to voice their opinion. And why not? You are on the mark and ready to make a point. Tell it to the elves!

SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Have you been naughty or nice? Have you been a splurger or a saver? Sagittarians may find that the temptation to amass the perfect (expensive) gifts may become too great. You want to stuff your stockings to the brim. But Santa has other plans. There are many ways to enjoy your time that needn’t cost a fortune. Please let me know when you think of some.

CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
First impressions are lasting impressions now. Circumstances conspire to make you the center of attention. Make good use of your time in the center stage. Capricorns find that they can launch new projects as well as meet, greet and charm anyone they decide to razzle dazzle. So don’t sit home and wait for a knock on the door. Venture forth ... with a few gifts.

AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Aquarians have tricks up their sleeves and good thing too. Things were getting too routine and boring. It’s time to spike the eggnog. Use your intuition and see if you can discern the motivations of others. In solving some behind the scene plots, you will be able to avoid those folks who are trying to undermine you. Be cool, calm, collected and successful.

PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Think of ways to gather friends together. Opportunities abound for a variety of pleasurable but platonic pastimes. Consider joining some new clubs or dancing in some new holiday parties. The folks you meet now spark your imagination and can benefit you in the future. Pisces are people who need people. In this circumstance you can never get too needy.
