Week of October 10, 2008

The less we hear from you rams, the better. You've got your work cut out for you. For maximum effectiveness/productivity, eliminate time spent engaging in the private business of others. Instead, fix all your love and attention upon your craftsmanship, whistling with joy while you work.

Aries of the Week: Linda Goodman

Let's start by facing the job before you... Mental preparation is key at times like this. Oh,but bulls before you start zoning in, you should know that this is a different type of labor than what you're used to. It requires less knuckling down, for example, and more clowning around.

Taurus of the Week: The Ramone's first self-titled album

All you need is a miracle, twins. Luckily, there's one on the way, dressed to the nines, singing your prasises to the high heavens and chanting your success loud enough for all the world to hear. Fling open your door and greet your loving comrade. Salute him/her with what respect they do you.

Gemini of the Week: "Star Wars"

My dear friend/doctor and three year student of chinese medicine reminded me this week that the best ninjas are the flexible ones. The ones who avoid trouble are the ones who remain supple. To be most "loose" then, sacrifice all but the essential. This keeps you light on your feet, making quick and fluid moves much easier to execute.

Cancer of the Week: Oliver Sacks

Don't stop believing, lions. Not NOW, of all the times in the world. Keep your head up. And whatever you do, don't surrender your passions, but do give in to the wilderness in you. Allow your untamed heart to lead you forth.

Leo of the Week: Del the Funky Homosapien

The road is filled with extra twists and turns this week, virg. My best advice is to take them all. You are focused enough to handle the divets. Mingle with the swirl. To endure the risk and grasp it's lesson is your victory.

Virgo of the Week: The Price is Right

It's the ideal time to recalibrate, regroup, and regain status. For best results, give out where there is excess, and take in where there is need. Take your time to investigate, but when in doubt trust and blindly obey your GUT!!!!!

Libra of the Week: U2

Timing is of the essence scorpio. Striking at any other moment but the right one is only a waste of your precious resource. Gather your patience and engage this week in the most ancient form of meditation--Focus only on one object at a time. This will help you to stay present in real-life situations, which is vital to experiencing the magic.

Scorpio of the Week: Toni Colette

Refrain from the urge to persecute, even if/when it's justified. Instead look more deeply into the words/actions of others. This is not recommended merely for the sake of your own personal peace-which is a natural result of this work, but also for the purpose of knowing how to handle a situation BEST, i.e. transforming it completely.

Sagitarius of the Week: Alyssa Milano

Goats, you are called this week to do what all great masters and mentors eventually must. Stand back. Release your students, with total trust in what they may accomplish on their own, maintaining faith that they have what knowledge they need. This is the only way they (and you) will ever know if they can do it on their own.

Capricorn of the Week: Joey McIntyre

Settle in water bearer. You're about to begin your hermit stage. That doesn't necessarily mean being an anti-social, btw. It just means doing what you please when you please. Doing so in fact leads you right to others of like mind, spirit, and imagination. You will therefore simultaneously be as alone as you are togehter.

Aquarius of the Week: The New Yorker

Take care of yourselves, fish, in whatever ways that requires this week. Look to no one/thing else to complete this task. First review your needs. Then-practice putting them FIRST, the more excruciating, (initially) the better.

Pisces of the Week: the first flight of the Concorde
