He started to explain himself, but he stumbled. Then he realized, to a liar the truth is always complex….

Many readers have emailed to ask when I will have the “Luck Forecasts” for summer 2013 to summer 2014 posted in the “Platforms” section. I’m sorry for the delay. Trouble is, I can’t discern how to put anything there. When I learn, I’ll do it….

The planet Pluto circles the zodiac in about 247 years (it varies by 3 years). When Christ began his teachings, Pluto had just entered the sign Scorpio. When Columbus sailed in 1492, Pluto had just entered the sign Scorpio. When Pluto entered Scorpio in the early 1700’s, the Industrial Revolution arose, and the concept of modern democratic nationhood was born (courtesy of J.J. Rousseau) – and the American and French revolutions followed. When Pluto entered Scorpio in 1983/84, the USSR fell apart, re-arranging the Euro-Asian continent, and AIDS arrived. The Battle of Hastings, the break-up of the Roman Empire, Genghis Khan, these coincided with Pluto entering Scorpio.

These world-changing events occurred when Pluto entered Scorpio. But the plot thickens: a chart drawn for the exact time/date Pluto enters Scorpio, also describes the 250 years to follow. For example, the 1700’s (1732? – memory escapes me) Pluto-into-Scorpio chart is filled with squares – an indication of conflict. Two world wars followed. The 1983 Pluto entry chart shows a massive amount of planets in Scorpio, and on one side of the chart. No squares. So the 250 years to follow will be stable, with perhaps one huge cataclysm if the stability becomes stagnation. Police states, repression, puzzling diseases, huge advances in medicine and research and high tech – these are Scorpio things, and we see them all around us already.

There’s more, but I’ll get to that in future columns.


Aries.svgARIES   March 21-April 19

Start nothing new before November 10. The weeks ahead feature secrets, mysteries, sexual desires, subconscious promptings, occultism, large financial situations, lifestyle choices and changes, critical health diagnoses, commitments and consequences. (Especially November 2 and 3.) During the “retro” (to Nov. 10) shy away from choices, commitments and promises. Work is hard and yet invigorating – stick to routine or simple chores until the 10th. Your home will be welcoming, upbeat, a respite from work. Sunday/Monday are romantic, inventive, risk-reward-prone and pleasure-prone (though pre-noon’s a bust: home, chores interfere). Tackle chores Tuesday/Wednesday – you’ll succeed best with  a big, neglected task. Relationships confront you with opposition, rebellion Thursday, perhaps a need to change your bond – or even your career. But things flow better Friday – agreement’s elusive, but talk and understanding grow.


taurus weekly forecastTAURUS   April 20-May 20

One of your favorite things arises over the weeks ahead: relationships. But if you begin  a brand new love or business link before November 10, it will very likely turn in circles of indecision until it expires. If you’re with someone now, stay with. An “ex” could re-appear now or next week – if you regret parting, then meld again. It might be even better this time around. Whatever happens, your sexual and romantic (and communications) skills are at a peak – don’t waste them. Remember, though, others hold the aces, the essential power, so follow  their lead. Listen to advice, even seek it. Some of you will wed as a result of this October/November’s events. (November 2 and 3 might show this.) Meanwhile, Sunday/Monday feature home, family, property, security – in these, don’t oppose your partner around noon (PDT). Monday night to Wednesday highlight romance, beauty, pleasure, a gambler’s instinct – charge ahead! Chores, health, Thursday/Friday.


Gemini.svgGEMINI   May 21-June 20

The weeks ahead emphasize work, health, dependants and service people, repairs and  machinery, especially November 2 and 3. Start NOTHING new, especially in these zones, before November 10. Don’t buy new equipment or  tools. Instead, tackle those chores you’ve ignored for months. (There are at least two.) You home continues to be friction-prone, but also “optimism-prone” – a good argument could clear the air for light and love. Also, you can “bleed off” this fractious energy with repairs, cleaning, etc. (Don’t use a strong cleanser you haven’t used before.) Relationships remain sweet. If you ask someone to marry you he/she will probably say no, but you’ll gain a lot of good will. Sunday/Monday highlight errands, communications, siblings and casual friends. Your heart turns toward home Tuesday/Wednesday, and despite what I’ve said about friction, all looks smooth, happy! Romantic notions fill Thursday (difficult) and Friday (okay). A core “disconnection” exists between friendship and sex – choose wisely.


Cancer.svgCANCER   June 21-July 22

An old flame might reappear. (You could hear something about this late Monday through Wednesday.) The weeks ahead emphasize romance, creativity, risk-taking, beauty, self-expression, pleasure, and developing children’s talents. But in all these, only the old or ongoing can succeed – don’t start major new projects nor relationships. (Don’t begin rewriting or revising a former painting – pitfalls exist.) Your career, now to early December, fills with emails, talks, travel, much hustle-bustle, but little solid progress. Then, December to July 2014, you will need to construct a new or more solid foundation under the tower of your ambitions. Study this matter now to December, so you’ll be prepared. This week features a disagreement over your ambitions/career (probably with a partner or loved one) – actually, there is verbal agreement, but a late-week sudden event or glitch shows the looming need for this “new foundation” in business, career, etc. Fall in love Saturday!


Leo icon, Luck ForecastLEO   July 23-Aug. 22

Remember, start nothing new before November 10. The weeks ahead emphasize home, property, family, security, gardening/agri, food/nutrition, soul, and hibernation. (Take frequent naps – “power naps.”) A former rental, home purchase or furniture suite you coveted before might become available once again. (But don’t pursue any brand new rental or purchase.) A long-absent child might return. Much money flows swiftly to you, until December – bank it, watch credit/debts. Be “foundational” rather than ambitious. Your energy and charisma remain high Sunday/Monday: use it, Sunday, to solve problems, to cross “to do’s” off your list. Handle money, shop (routine things, groceries) and sell items Tuesday/Wednesday. Thursday or Friday’s communication(s) or travel(s) might alert you to a problem, a conflict, between your work, duties, health on one side, and your ideas, intellectual yearnings, or love on the other side – or a simple computer crash  or driving accident. Take care. (Obamacare’s computer glitches came from this.) Home, sleep, Saturday!


Virgo.svgVIRGO   Aug. 23-Sept. 22

Start nothing new before November 10, Virgo. Meanwhile, guard against mistakes in emails, calls, travel, paperwork and scheduling details. Before going on errands, make a list. Your sexual magnetism, determination and all-round “courage” remain high to early December. But the weeks ahead promote fairly superficial relationships. This might result in a casual affair, one that could leave you indecisive about continuing it. If this is an old bond, former love, or former unfulfilled desire, go ahead. The same applies to investments and financial manoeuvres: if they are the rebirth of a past event or notion, go ahead. But commit to no brand new investments. A problem brews all week in these zones (sex and finances). If you just choose, pick romance over sex. Lie low, rest Sunday/Monday. Your energy and charisma surge Tuesday/Wednesday. Handle money issues Thursday/Friday. A trip, visit, Saturday.


Libra.svgLIBRA   Sept. 23-Oct. 22

Start nothing new before November 10, Libra. The weeks ahead emphasize earnings, money, possessions, buying and selling. Deal with ongoing or past demands/opportunities. Pay and collect outstanding bills. A sensual attraction might morph into a casual affair, but this person (or anyone new) will not make a good long-term mate if you begin the affair before December 7. (Until then, also, you might find that your present amour, or your mate, is not as impressed with you as usual. Just let this slide – times change.) Communications remain affectionate, travel pleasant – good time to make points with siblings. Sunday/Monday accent hopes, wishes, flirtation, popularity – happiness! Retreat, lie low midweek. You can make headway with government/administrative duties. Your energy and charisma soar Thursday/Friday – use it to handle, cope with, a long-term conflict between relationship and security. (E.g., the most fascinating potential partner might bring domestic upheaval.)


Scorpio.svgSCORPIO   Oct. 23-Nov. 21

Your energy and charisma float high, Scorpio! Get things done – but remember, start nothing new. So tackle old chores, contact former bosses and VIPs, lovers and friends. Revive former projects – if they still contain a success potential. Your money picture remains good, for one week. If you want to revisit a monetary agreement, tweak it perhaps, now is the time. All week, a crisis (perhaps only a crisis of choice) builds to a climax, between work and health on one hand, and friends, travel, communications on the other. Give the last group (friends, etc.) priority, for it’s through these that the future will come. Be ambitious Sunday/Monday: impress higher-ups without proposing any new projects. Happiness, flirtation, hopes, wishes, entertainment and popularity bless you midweek. But retreat, rest, contemplate Thursday/Friday. Saturday, you’re the star!


Sagittarius.svgSAGITTARIUS   Nov. 22-Dec. 21

Retreat from the bustling crowd, Sage. Spend a few weeks contemplating, resting. Protect your health and reputation; be charitable; deal with government agencies, institutions and your own “head office.” (A neglected chore needs doing here – tax return, application, etc.) This is usually a good period for planning, but not this time. Instead, research, examine, study, and sift through the past for nuggets of insight. Don’t start any major projects or relationships before November 10. Others continue to notice your physical and social charms. (Last week for this.) Far travel, social/cultural rituals, higher education, profound thoughts and relationships, truth itself, visit you Sunday/Monday. (Best Sunday night, for love.) Be ambitious (within reason) midweek – all’s well, bosses and judges favour you. Thursday/Friday bring joy, social delights, wish fulfillment, and problems. A money-versus-love conflict reaches a peak. It’s been around for a few years. Retreat, lie low Saturday.


Capricorn.svgCAPRICORN   Dec. 22-Jan. 19

The weeks ahead are filled with hope and optimism, popularity and social joys, entertainment, group gatherings, perhaps political action. But DON’T start new projects or relationships, nor even lay plans, before November 10. Instead, stick with faithful associates and welcome past friends (even past lovers, one of whom might contact you). Strictly avoid legal hassles (right up to December 7, but especially to Nov. 10). You might face a domestic upheaval this week (late week) perhaps over money disagreements, or diverging views on the future. This problem has been building for several years. You might only experience a computer glitch, or electric problems in the home. Sunday/Monday bring secrets, research, deep, semi-conscious desires and insights (Sunday night best for meditating, research, intimacy). Gentle love, understanding fill Tuesday/Wednesday.  Be cautious in ambition, career, reputation zones Thursday/Friday. Friends, Saturday.


Aquarius.svgAQUARIUS   Jan. 20-Feb. 18

The weeks ahead emphasize ambitions, business standing and career – but don’t start any new projects in these (or any) zone before November 10. Protect your position and ongoing ventures by double-checking, preparing a “cushion” of extra supplies, “doubling up” on available personnel, etc. A former boss or career role might return briefly – don’t sign away your future here if in doubt. All told, your career outlook, though slow, is good, smooth, “supported.” Relationships face you Sunday/Monday. (Sunday night best for love.) Now to early December, your sexual magnetism (and interest) simmer – especially Tuesday/Wednesday. Your financial side, also to early December, needs caution against impulsive action. Gentle love, wisdom, far travel, learning, law and cultural contacts visit you Thursday/Friday – but things ain’t easy, especially Thursday. Avoid gossip. A (government?) authority might not like your “answer.”


Pisces.svgPISCES   Feb. 19-March 20

Bosses and authorities still love you, Pisces, for one more week – take advantage. But DON’T start any new projects, nor approach a VIP you’ve never met before. Instead, continue with ongoing projects, or drag one up from the past. The general accent is not ambitious, but lies on intellect, travel, cultural venues, social rites, publishing and education. These proceed well, but here, too, start nothing new before November 10. An old flame might appear, perhaps Tuesday/Wednesday, or Saturday. All week, a problem that’s several years long reaches one of its climaxes – it pits your money, possessions or earnings against your friendships, future goals or a light, flirtatious romance. Side with friends, goals, romance, as these can grow more profound, can change your life in splendid ways through 2024. Tackle chores Sunday/Monday. Relationships midweek. Intimacy or “big finances” Thursday/Friday – careful! Love, Saturday.
