Cruisin’ the Cosmos – week of Jan 31 2008

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

The cow never knew the use of its tail till the butcher cut it off and you don’t always know you’re squanderin’ somethin’ until you’ve already run out of it. That’s OK though. Just look at it all as part of your cosmic education and now that you’re a little smarter you won’t be so prone to wastin’!

PISCES (Feb. 19 – March 20)

Economically speakin’ it’s the time of the year when folks start trimmin’ the fat so it’d be a good idea if that fat ain’t where you’re at. This week you wanna be seen as a lean mean well-oiled machine. If you don’t go outta your way to be of good use you just might find you’ve cooked your own goose!

ARIES (March 21 – April 19)

This weekend you’ll be tempted to throw in the towel and live life like a lazy vowel. Maybe “ ooo” or “ aaa” or even “ iii” would be the way you’d pass time by. Hard consonants however you shouldn’t shirk ’cause without them words won’t work. If you don’t wanna do somethin’ ’cause it’s too tough that on its own ain’t reason enough!

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

For someone who sure likes their stability you get bored pretty dang easily. That’s why before you go lookin’ elsewhere for greener grass you better take care ’n’ cover your ass. Don’t let your earthly desires get you too hot or when you jump the fence you might lose all you’ve got!

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)

This week don’t strike up any deals sign any papers or schmooze with big wheels. Mercury’s movin’ in a backwards motion and while it is you won’t have a clear notion where to go so stay right where you are and you’ll get just as far. Until mid-February that’s what you can expect ’cause that’s when ol’ Merc is goin’ direct!

CANCER (June 21 – July 22)

The Court of Karma is reviewin’ your case and they’re gonna be doin’ it at their own pace. There ain’t nothin’ you can do to speed up the process without gettin’ yourself into a big mess. Keep your schemes on hold ’cause if you just let events naturally unfold you’ll reach the rainbow’s end and the pot o’ gold!

LEO (July 23 – Aug. 22)

This week is gonna be a lot like droppin’ your soul off at the karmic cleaners. If you pay the extra cost they do all the work and the dirt comes out in the wash. If you go through the rinse cycle without puttin’ up a fight at the end of the week your soul’ll be sparklin’ white and like the ads say brighter than bright!

VIRGO (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

If you have the courage to face this period of change you’ll have a say in how things get rearranged. However if you choose to be a victim of circumstance it’ll be like Yosemite Sam firin’ at your feet ’n’ yellin’ at you to dance. This week the choice you’ll be makin’ll determine the direction of the new path you’ll be takin’!

LIBRA (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

This week as the cosmic personification of the scales of justice it’s your responsibility — nay your duty — to mete out said justice mercilessly. Let all liars cheats and thieves cower in your presence! Let those who treasure truth and love rejoice! Let you be the instrument to show ’em the results of their choice!

SCORPIO (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

This week you’ll see that none of your schemes’ll set you free. No siree you can stack ’em on each other like a house of cards but they’ll fall over eventually if you breathe too hard. You need help to pull off the escape you have planned and you’ll get it when you’ve got no cards up your sleeve and you’re showin’ your hand!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

Game theory says you need to maximize your gains and minimize your losses ’cause it ain’t enough to rely on lucky coin tosses. So far you’ve had chance on your side all along but you need some insurance in case things go wrong. If you play the short-term pain for long-term gain sooner than you think you’ll win this game!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

If you look at it like you’re writin’ the story of your life this chapter’s chock-full of trouble and strife. Now if you want a bestseller after all that heart-rendin’ you’ve gotta come up with a happy endin’. You’re the writer you’ve paid your dues now you get to choose how to close this episode and start the next one anew!
