Cruisin’ the Cosmos – week of May 1 2008

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

It don’t matter if you ain’t winnin’ that still shouldn’t stop you from grinnin’. Knowin’ where you stand is important to you and now you have your answer. You know what to do. Don’t let a “no” cause you emotional strife ’cause you’ll soon get a “yes” if you just go on with your life!

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)

By now you should already know the score — all’s fair in love ’n’ war. Whichever the case may be now’s the time to give free rein to those urges that might seem a wee bit insane. This week you can do whatever you need to win while the light’s green ’cause this time the end justifies the means!

CANCER (June 21 – July 22)

Don’t worry about holdin’ the object of your desire tightly in your grip to prevent it from givin’ you the slip. You oughtta be more concerned about crushin’ the thing by doin’ way too much squeezin’. This week you have to go to great lengths to be gentle ’cause you may not even know your own strength!

LEO (July 23 – Aug. 22)

You may be the lord of the jungle and the king of the zodiac but try as you might you still can’t get this tough nut to crack. You’ve tried clawin’ and growlin’ and roarin’ but to no avail — in fact they seem kinda borin’ and invariably fail. Well your feline highness didja ever think of tryin’ to kill ’em with kindness?

VIRGO (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

You’ve staked your reputation on your ability to process information and make a proclamation based on your analysations. What you should worry about right now is jumpin’ to conclusions due to lack of patience. Next week cross all your i’s and dot all your t’s or folks’ll make fun of you with the greatest of ease!

LIBRA (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

You’re gonna have the beautiful blues this weekend. That’s where you start with that one colour and create a palette to paint with by squeezin’ the rest o’ the spectrum of your soul out of that nozzle till you’re done. It’s like bein’ Miles Davis’s trumpet and Picasso’s famous period rolled into one!

SCORPIO (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

This weekend when everything is hunky-dory and you’re baskin’ in your glory a little voice in your head’ll try to tell you a different story. Relax. It’s only the moon in your opposite sign bein’ a troublemaker and messin’ with your mind. Right now things are fine and as long as you’re level-headed they’ll stay that way for a long time!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

Even though your aim is keen this is the swiftest target you’ve ever seen. Looks like this time it’s gonna be harder than you thought to get what you wanted but if you’re a good Sag you’ll still be undaunted. You only need to hit it ’cause you know how to track and you can pursue your prey till it succumbs to your attack!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

Don’t let this week be a strain on your brain. Make it your priority to simply maintain. Right now if you try to start somethin’ new it’s gonna take a big toll on you. If you concentrate instead on what you’ve already got you’ll realize there ain’t room for more ’cause your plate’s already holdin’ a lot!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Sometimes it’s like you win a huge hand in a poker game have a pile of chips sittin’ in front of you get interested in what someone at another table’s sayin’ and completely forget you’re still playin’. Then you walk away leavin’ the chips where they lay and realize the next day all your money’s departed. Avoid all this by finishin’ what you started!

PISCES (Feb. 19 – March 20)

Let it be known to all Pisces that you have a licence to act like a loon from now until Friday at noon. Above all be like li’l Jack Horner — even if you’re caught in a corner you can still stick your thumb in anything that you think looks yum-yum. Hey he wasn’t a dumb guy. He knew there was a plum in that pie!

ARIES (March 21 – April 19)

Even though everything seems like it’s goin’ wrong and you feel so outta tune you can’t sing along don’t decide to forget all about doin’ the duet. The sooner you start the sooner your voice’ll get strong. Once you can escape from the claws of self-doubt you’ll soon be beltin’ all kinda tunes out!
