I think it’s possible that the northern west coast of North America (Washington State to the Alaska panhandle, and B.C.’S coast) will shift from a northern rainforest to a more California-like Mediterranean climate: drier, warmer. …

Remember I predicted (about 2009, 2010?) that we would see many sinkholes? It seems the news is studded with reports of another one every few months. This phenomenon should last until about 2024. It comes from Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto rules hell, the underworld, and Capricorn is an earth sign – ergo, earth sinking….

Luck shakes handsome Destiny’s hand, but she embraces Fate enthusiastically, and their children cover the hills and valleys. (Which, when you contemplate it, is a form of destiny.)…

(I love the lawn-haired suburbs, children blowing across them like leaves of autumn, flowers of spring, their green lawns spread luxuriant and female, beautiful lawn bellies holding houses in protective love….)

I sort of know what the self, myself, is. But what’s beneath? What does the self cover? To journey down there, into the subconscious, even lower, into the unconscious, must be an adventure worthy of Jason and the Argonauts, or Pat Boone exploring the centre of the earth. It’s – the realm beneath the self – a land that must be human, but it is strange, supra-human,  and, I believe, is tied in with destiny, with the hidden engines of our individual existences. The rewards, the jewels of knowledge and experience, must be immense. Meditation takes us part way, and sleep, perhaps to another neighbourhood; drugs, too. But these all meet an unseen, perhaps even un-sensed barrier.  Perhaps, when we feel an unexpected nudge or sudden breeze of insight, or an angel’s wing lifts the mind’s curtains in a sweet summer moment, perhaps this is the region below the self waving to us, saying “Hi!”…

Okay, that stupid “5 second rule” – you know, the bit that says if you pick up a dropped spoon/knife/fork fast enough, no germs will have  crawled on it, so you can use it without washing. Often, its couched as a question: how many seconds…? The truth is, it doesn’t take any time for germs to crawl onto a dropped spoon, because the germs don’t crawl at all. They’re suspended in some solid or liquid mass, known scientifically as “dirt.” As soon as your spoon hits this mass, this medium, some of the liquid or solid sticks to your spoon. This bit of dirt transfers millions of bugs to your spoon as soon as it’s touched….


 Aries.svgARIES   March 21-April 19

The weeks ahead bring far travel, higher learning, intellectual pursuits, cultural venues and social rituals, a mellow mood and a search for understanding – and love. Sunday’s romantic, but confusion seems to outweigh everything. (The problem might be that the one you’re attracted to is thinking “sex, major changes, secrets, big stakes financially” rather than “romance.” It’s hard to romance someone who has their eyes on a different goal. But take heart – this “inattention” by him/her is only temporary – gone by late week.) Tackle chores Monday/Tuesday – you’ll succeed! Relationships fill Wednesday afternoon to Friday – throw your arms open in welcome to someone Wednesday night, but step gingerly Thursday/Friday. Life’s depths, secrets surge to the surface Saturday – invest, make changes, seek intimacy with someone sweet and friendly.


 taurus weekly forecastTAURUS   April 20-May 20

The month ahead emphasizes depths, secrecy, lust, large finances, and health – and possible lifestyle changes. Your intuition will be high and  accurate, so follow it rather than “bare logic.” Your subconscious bursts to the surface: you’ll dream more, remember things from murkier times. Rest all day Sunday: nap in the sunshine, hug kids, be with family. Romance, pleasure and beauty call Monday/Tuesday – you could be surprised at how receptive someone is to your wooing. (Good mate potential with someone you meet Monday night; good lover potential with someone met Tuesday afternoon. If both the same person, good!) Tackle chores Wednesday afternoon to Friday. All succeeds Wed.; be careful, pre-think actions Thursday; stick to routine chores Friday. Relationships (the most valuable thing for you in 2013) arise Friday night through Saturday – charge forth, seek union, friendship, contract, etc.


Gemini.svgGEMINI   May 21-June 20

Ah, at last, the drudgery is over. The weeks ahead bring fresh air, new horizons, opportunities and relationships. You’ll need to be diplomatic, co-operative, and willing to jump on another’s bandwagon rather than clinging stubbornly to your own. An investment partnership will yield good results. If you work for someone, they will be feeling flush – means you could get a pay raise if you just keep knocking on the boss’s door. (This trend lasts to March/14.) You’re restless, talkative Sunday, but perceptions are screwy, and nothing of substance results. Read the paper instead.  Your home, family, security and property become important Monday to Wednesday – all is smooth, workable here – plunge into repairs, decorating, gardening, kids’ concerns, etc. Your home continues to be a place of friction and hope for two more weeks. Romance, pleasure, beauty call you Wednesday night (splendid!) Thursday (bumpy ride) and Friday (little result). Work, health Saturday.


Cancer.svgCANCER   June 21-July 22

A month of work, a wee bit of boredom, of health concerns and duties toward your kids, pets – these lie ahead. Protect your health: dress and eat sensibly, sleep regularly. Despite the work tone, life will contain lots of other adventures. A beautiful relationship streak promises new attractions (though you might also end a love link). Many messages, calls and trips keep you busy – these relate either to your career, your parents, or your own parenting. To top it all off, you remain lucky – especially in work zones. You want to shop Sunday, but stick to routine items (e.g., groceries). Wanderlust, calls, errands fill Monday/Tuesday – meet a good friend, or make a new one. Home, family, property, security are lucky, happy Wed. night, threatened Thurs. morn, lucky later; and meet “nil results” Fri. Friday night, and Saturday, bring romance, beauty, peace and pleasure – and a lucky career opening!


Leo icon, Luck ForecastLEO   July 23-Aug. 22

A month of romance, love, charming children, beauty, pleasure, speculative success, sports and games has just begun. You’ll ride a winning streak! Though for the year past and the three months ahead, you’re luckier at home than in career, much of the “career doldrums” (or worse) is lifting now. Until March, co-workers favour you with affectionate friendship. But the real focus lies on romance, et al for now. You attract attention Sunday: problem is, there’s nothing huge worth doing. Chase money, buy/sell, seek new clients, ask for a pay raise Monday/Tuesday – all lights are green! (You’re earning/receiving a lot of money this month (to December 7) but will lose it if you don’t clamp down on spending.) Errands, trips, calls, paperwork, casual friends Wednesday eve/night (lucky) Thursday (challenging: be nice) and Friday (missed connections). Be home, sink into sweet rest, Friday night, Saturday.


Virgo.svgVIRGO   Aug. 23-Sept. 22

The emphasis lies on home, security, parent/kid relationships, retirement plans, rest and recuperation, gardening, mother nature, food, kitchen, stomach and soul. Weather permitting, this would be a great time to go camping, skiing, or sunny-beaching. Your magnetism continues to simmer (two more weeks) and your romantic sector is luckily lit until March. Singles could start an affair while on vacation, or “across the back fence” (i.e., near home). Lie low, rest Sunday. Your energy, charisma and effectiveness surge back Monday to midday Wednesday – start something important (in the home, security, et al spheres listed above). Luck is with you, and everyone co-operates! Chase money, buy/sell, seek new clients Wednesday pm, but protect all these areas Thursday, and let them simmer Friday. Trips, errands, siblings, casual friends, messages and calls fill Friday night, Saturday.


Libra.svgLIBRA   Sept. 23-Oct. 22

The weeks ahead will make you very busy, but the stakes are not high, so be active and relaxed. Errands, calls, visits, travel, paperwork, emails will fill the days. You won’t be lonely if single, for two reasons: 1) your home remains sweet, a happy retreat; and 2) you’ll frequently interact with friends, siblings and acquaintances – but don’t look for romantic prospects here. That’s okay. By December 7 you will enter 7 months of increasingly profound relationships, and by July 2014, a crowd of light romantic prospects will surround you – for a year. So opt for mere friendship this week. You’re popular, optimistic Sunday. Retreat, rest, contemplate and plan Monday/Tuesday (excellent plans!). Your energy and charisma rise Wednesday pm (lucky!) Thursday (be diplomatic, cautious) and Friday (few results). Start something meaningful later Wednesday. Chase money, buy/sell, seek clients Saturday – say Yes to an exciting meeting.


Scorpio.svgSCORPIO   Oct. 23-Nov. 21

The weeks ahead focus on money, possessions, memory, rote learning, and sensual attractions. Buy, sell unwanted items, ask for a pay raise, seek new clients. (Good purchases: travel tickets, cultural items or shows, educational materials, tuition, advertising, wedding gifts.) Get out and play/socialize once or twice with work buddies this week and next – starting Dec. 7, for seven months, you will need allies in work situations, so make co-worker (or same field) friends now. You might feel ambitious Sunday, but start nothing. Friends, high hopes, life’s joys, wish fulfilment and group associations fill a splendid Monday/Tuesday – you’ll be happy! Wednesday pm to Friday calls for caution, meditation, rest, and a charitable outlook. Friday night and Saturday your energy surges, charisma attracts others – start important things!


Sagittarius.svgSAGITTARIUS   Nov. 22-Dec. 21

A month of drudgery is over, Sage. Your energy shoots upward, your charisma increases over the weeks ahead. Use this time to start an important project (or two) – you will tend to succeed, to gain others’ cooperation, to get answers where before silence prevailed. Ask favours, seek interviews, seen and be seen. Your money picture continues to be lucky, rewarding – all the way to March. Use this long interval to boost your assets, or – more importantly Dec. To March – to place your earnings on a higher, permanent level. Ask for a pay raise, garner more clients, etc. Buy fashions, beauty products, status symbols, group tickets. (Avoid purchasing any machinery before March 1.) Sunday’s wise, mellow – seek God, or read a good book. Be ambitious Monday/Tuesday – a splendid run of “supportive luck” raises you up, helps you establish programs, projects. Friends, popularity, light romance, optimism about the future bless you Wednesday eve to Friday. Even if things don’t work out Thursday, you’ll remain happy. Retreat, rest Saturday.


Capricorn.svgCAPRICORN   Dec. 22-Jan. 19

A month of rest and recuperation began last Thursday. Lie low, avoid competitive situations, be charitable and spiritual. Be kind to shut-ins, catch up on neglected duties. Deal with government agencies, institutions or your own head office. Contemplate and plan – many opportunities could “answer” your plans over the next seven months. Despite your weariness and tendency to withdraw in this month ahead, you’ll remain attractive to others – expect unexpected visits, phone calls. People think you’re something special. Sunday’s for hints, clues—most of them wrong. Don’t act on anything. A wise, mellow, loving mood flows over you Monday/Tuesday – these days are excellent for far travel, intellectual pursuits, education, publishing/broadcasting, legal affairs. Be ambitious Wednesday pm (good luck) Thursday (possible disagreement with an authority or boss) and Friday (not much progress). Happiness, mild social joys, optimism visit you Friday night, Saturday.


Aquarius.svgAQUARIUS   Jan. 20-Feb. 18

A wish can come true over the month ahead, Aquarius. Your social life expands, happy new people enter (at least one know-it-all, too). Light romance can occur, though chances are a bit slim, partly because one part of you is attracted to solitude, and/or to deep, heavy, serious  intimacies – not the stuff of friendly romance. (Your big relationship time will start in July 2014.) Sunday provides relationship clues, but they’re mostly misleading. Life’s depths, secrets, lust, big finances, perhaps a health problem – these arise, luckily, Monday/Tuesday. (Health-wise, the luck lies in the diagnosis, the cure.) Your intellectual side emerges Wednesday pm to Friday – far travel, international affairs, foreign-born people, lawyers, scholars, higher education, publishing, insurance, and love are favoured Wed., problematical Thursday/Friday. Be ambitious Saturday – all weekend – you could capture the prize, praise, even a promotion.


Pisces.svgPISCES   February 19-March 20

The month ahead features ambition, career, relations with VIPs, parents, bosses and authorities. You be under pressure, but you come through with a victory if you work hard and eagerly. Your social life only gets better, this week and onward to March. If unattached, you might start a light love affair in the next 6 weeks, one that will turn unabashedly physical. Tackle routine chores Sunday. Exciting meetings, the need for diplomacy and co-operation (on your part) and tantalizing opportunities arrive Monday/Tuesday – plunge it, all’s good! Mysteries, research, subconscious urges, intuition, sexual yearnings and large finances arise Wed. pm (lucky) Thursday (bumpy) and Friday (nil result).  Envision your “best love” Wednesday night – it could come soon. Gentle love, wisdom, travel and intellectual affairs (and legalities) arise Friday night, Saturday – go forth! Saturday morning holds an open door to career and increased earnings: if you see it, step in.
