Cruisin’ the Cosmos – week of Oct 11 – 17

LIBRA (Sept. 23 — Oct. 22)

When you’re susceptible to others’ influence you can end up doin’ things that make you wanna wince. Why bring this up now? Well ’cause the start of the week is a darn good time to sit down and define the difference between what’s “theirs” and what’s “mine.” Forget what other folks say or do figure out what’s right for you!

SCORPIO (Oct. 23 — Nov. 21)

It looks like you’re gonna win so don’t let ’em suck you in emotionally or you’ll get in the way of your own victory. It’s like usin’ kung fu or any other martial art — think with the body not the mind or the heart. If you let ’em upset you it’s a safe bet you’ll leave yourself open and they’ll be able to get you!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 — Dec. 21)

Your arrows and bow ain’t just a weapon y’know. In case you forgot Cupid uses them too — a lot. Makes you think don’t it? In one person’s hand it can be used to kill while in another’s it spreads life’s greatest thrill. If you get what you give then where do you stand and what are you givin’ with that bow in your hand?

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 — Jan. 19)

If you’re feelin’ bummed ’cause of what you’ve lost take time to tally the actual cost. When the calculations are done you’ll see it’s actually great — you just rid yourself of a load o’ dead weight. You shouldn’t be sad you oughtta smile ’cause now that you’re lighter you’re totally mobile!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 — Feb. 18)

Lovin’ humanity’s fine and wantin’ to help it’s even finer but you don’t serve fine French cuisine in a greasy-spoon diner. Givin’ ’em such deluxe food and wine would be settin’ pearls down before swine. Sometimes the best way to attain harmony is to just let things be even if you don’t necessarily agree!

PISCES (Feb. 19 — March 20)

Folks may say Pisces are pushovers ’cause they’re the passive type but don’t believe the hype. Think of all the fish there be in the rivers and seas known for their meanness and brutality like the barracuda shark and piranha. Well you can be nasty as them if you wanna and if anyone messes with you they’re a goner!

ARIES (March 21 — April 19)

When you’re not happy with the price you command remember the law of supply and demand. As long as there’s lots of somethin’ goin’ around the price never really gets off the ground. Next week to increase the value of your shares you’ve gotta purposefully make yourself scarce!

TAURUS (April 20 — May 20)

Even in the bottom of a well 20-feet deep and three-feet wide there’s always a way to look on the bright side. No matter how low you may presently be you should expect an upswing pretty quickly. In fact you’ve got hope-on-a-rope danglin’ right in front of your face so grab onto it and climb up outta this place!

GEMINI (May 21 — June 20)

In business affairs you’ve hopefully learned that thinkin’ with your heart not your head can get you burned. This week it’s especially true about two people who are dealin’ with you. Beliefs are one thing but blind faith is the worst. That’s why the old-timers say trust in God but tie your horse up first!

CANCER (June 21 — July 22)

If you’re lookin’ for strength the best place to start is with the endless supply of love in your heart. In fact your heart’s so full of love there’s no need for you to push and shove. No matter how things may change or what temptations you face if you use all of your heart you’ll move through it with grace!

LEO (July 23 — Aug. 22)

Forget good/bad and right/wrong ’cause here in the jungle they don’t belong. If you need to eat you go kill some prey ’cause hey that’s the lion way. Your quarry’ll call you “bad” and “a sinner” but that’s ’cause they’re gonna be had for dinner. You’re a lion. You can’t survive by the rules of some upright hairless monkey fools!

VIRGO (Aug. 23 — Sept. 22)

There’s nothin’ you love better that a friendly battle of wits but this weekend be careful how hard your blows hit. You’re stronger than you think. The problem with sparrin’ is that when you’re winnin’ it’s a gas and you start to enjoy kickin’ their ass. Before you go too far remember there’s no prize for winnin’ it’s just a spar!
