January 2019 Horoscopes

Important Dates:  New Year’s Day, January 1; Solar Eclipse, January 5; and Martin Luther King Day, January 21.

New Year Energy

It’s a New Year, ready for new opportunities, new adventures, new beginnings, new jobs, new relationships, new goals, dreams and aspirations.  Have you really thought about what you would like to change in your life during this new year?  Will you take that trip you have always dreamed about?  Will you finally try to start a home-based business and get rid of your fear of leaving corporate?  Are you ready to look for love and not be afraid of getting hurt?

Life is about experiences and lessons.  How can you learn the lessons you are supposed to if you stay in your little safe corner always living the same day over and never taking a chance or making a change?  Be spontaneous.  Meet new people!  Join clubs that interest you and get to know more people with like mind and interests. Expand your horizons.  Learn more about a philosophy, religion or metaphysics.  Expand your mind.  Read that book you’ve always wanted to (I’m finally reading Pride and Prejudice after seeing all the movie productions of it and it’s fun to see what the original story was.)  Deal with issues you’ve ignored that may be haunting you or keeping you from moving forward.  Go after that new job or career.  Be a positive force in the universe and more positive opportunities and dreams will be attracted to you and become a reality.  Be strong even if life has thrown you some curves.  We can all be what we want to be and do what we want to do – the issue is that we need to believe in ourselves and have confidence in our choices.  Start the new year with confidence and purpose.  Have the year you deserve.  Make it a reality!

Every January, I like to remind my horoscope readers that I have adjusted the dates for each sign to reflex the actual 2019 sun signs dates. You will always remain the same sign in which you were born.

ARIES – March 20 – April 19

Many unexpected changes and new beginnings are coming your way.  Old ways of doing things are now a thing of the past.  You are looking for a new direction or doing things differently.  A change in personal style or a makeover may be in store for you as you seem to be disappointed in the status quo.  New good luck and opportunities come into your life; however, if you don’t grab them, they will disappear and will never return again.  Be sure to look over the opportunity even if you are not sure that you want it.  Opportunities will be presented to you for your best interest so it would be good if you at least look into it before making your decision.   You may have new ideas on how to work smarter and not harder, so this is the time to put your ideas into action so you have more time to spend with family or on your own interests.  Home life may be a bit confusing, but once you decide to finish projects, have the family to pitch in to help and follow a plan, your home turn into the comfortable place you’ve always wanted.

TAURUS – April 20 – May 20

You are trying to get many projects done, but seem to be getting a bit frustrated that there just isn’t enough time to complete everything.  Partnerships can be a bit strained, but with patience and persistence, you can change anything that you are not happy with within the relationship.  It is imperative that both of you communicate with each other and discuss what is on your mind.  Your career is going in a very good direction.  There are many possibilities for a promotion or change of job for more money, if you are looking for something new.  It also seems as if this is a time where you are playing the role of everyone’s mother by giving advice, opinions, making decisions for others and generally just by being there as a shoulder to cry on.  This is a compassionate thing to do; however, your energy seems to be going to others while your energy field is being drained more and more as the days go by.  So, be careful not to let your immune system be compromised.  You must rest, take care of yourself and let others take care of their own lives for awhile.

GEMINI – May 21 – June 20

Money still continues to be a worry, but with determination and persistence, you will be able to pay your bills and get those special projects around the house done in a timely manner.  You may have to put some of the more expensive projects on hold for now, but not for long.  Depression or sadness may take hold of you from time to time as you review your last year and realize that you hadn’t accomplished all that you wanted to.  Giving more attention to your needs would be a big help in attaining your goals.  Your energy is scattered all over the place, so start prioritizing your life.  You may be wondering where you will be a year from now.  Creative budgeting and common sense get you through the month just fine. 

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

Family and home are very important.  Life may be blown out of proportion so just go with the flow on many things.  Don’t get too upset before you know the outcome of certain situations.  Many things will take you by surprise, but don’t worry, they will be good surprises!  A conflict in home life will keep you overwhelmed and stressed, so ask for help, put things on the back burner and just do what absolutely has to get done at the moment so you can handle any issue that needs to be taken care of.  You are thinking about so many different areas of your life that you would like to enhance or change, but Cancerians are not the easiest sign to accept change.  You need to figure out exactly what it is you want out of your job, your family, your career and your life in general before those things can be given to you.

LEO – July 22 – August 22
Children will be your main focus now, so be sure to prepare interesting and creative projects for them to learn from as well as gain a brand-new skill.  Romantic love takes a giant leap forward and you are really ready for this after the last year you have had.  Be open to new relationships and just know that someone special is coming your way.  If married or involved, your relationship seems to be going in a much better direction once there is a bit of compromise or mutual understanding about your future together.  Friendships can be confusing and you may even find out that one of your trusted friends have betrayed you in some way.  It is up to you whether or not to forgive your friend, but be sure this was not just a misunderstanding or mistake.

VIRGO – August 23 – September 22
Health, diet and exercise are being activated now; however, health concerns may be real.  If you are not feeling well or are worried about something that just doesn’t feel right in your body, a quick trip to the doctor will help you decide on your next course of action.  Rest is very important for you now since it doesn’t look as if you ever quit.  You keep doing more and more and your leisure time seems to be less frequent, if you have any at all.  Metaphysics or esoteric teachings may be of interest.  A class or two may be in your future to learn a particular modality or a new topic in general.  You want to learn something new and seem to be moving into the spiritual realm.  Many changes are coming for you and if they are planned, they will be wonderful.  If you let the universe run your life then you are never really prepared for what will manifest for you.  Finish other projects before starting new ones. 

LIBRA – September 23 – October 22

Personal and business relationships (as well as situations dealing with the law or court in some way) are the main focus now.  Your activities keep you busy, and if you look into your health issues just a little bit more, you will do well.  You go back and forth on many decisions which really need to be made.  Always listen to the first thought that comes into your mind about a particular issue and just accept that as a Divine answer to your question.  Not deciding is not a decision.  Seeing both sides to a situation is amazing but not if it keeps you confused and overwhelmed.  Your procrastination is at an all time high and if you keep procrastinating, you will attract more negative energy to you and who needs that?

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21
Emotions can be very tricky this month, especially if it includes your partner.  You may seem overly jealous or possessive but a logical talk with your partner will put your mind to rest.  You are overthinking.  Keeping life in perspective has never been hard for you to do; however, you may feel as if too many things are just not going as planned.  You are getting more comfortable with your life, especially if you’ve recently made a major move in your career or home.  Finishing those long-forgotten projects or things that have bothered you (because you haven’t had the time to complete them) will help you feel a sense of stability and security.  You need to organize your life, get rid of things that mean nothing to you and only keep those things that are essential to your well being and happiness.  De-cluttering or organizing your life and home will also bring in good luck and more positive opportunities that will be in your best interest.

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

Creativity, long distance travel and education are activated now.  You are interested in so many areas of life and what you can and can’t do.  Don’t limit yourself in any way.  Get out there and make a difference in your life and the life of others.  Money issues need to be clarified and dealt with so that you will no longer worry about your financial future.  Update financial records, wills, and tax records so that everything will be at hand if needed.  Spirituality, artistic ability and metaphysics become important now as you want to learn everything that you can about the subjects you have an interest in.  This is a great time to paint, start a new project, read and think about what it is you want to accomplish in the near future.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19
There will be a lot of activity at work so be prepared to work hard and get a little bit more organized.  You may also start thinking of getting the next certification for your business so you can proceed to bigger and better things.  There is so much going on within your head.  Your energy levels are strong and yet you just seem to be standing still.  Don’t over think your decisions.  Once you’ve made them stick with them or just fix the error you’ve made and move on!  Change is on the horizon as well as thinking about so many different areas of life that you wish could be changed or that never happened.  Some reciprocal energy is required now for your good mental and physical health.

AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 17

Friends are the highlight of the month.  Some members of the opposite sex may want to be more than friends, but you are very specific when it comes to choosing a romantic partner.  Friends may want to set you up on a blind date.  Go, it’s just a date and you may meet the woman/man of your dreams.  Make sure you are living in reality before you make any important changes.  Resting, reading or exercising will help you get back into great physical shape or state of mind.  Relieve stress and make some alone time for yourself and then Magic will mysteriously appear all around you, if you look for it.  Nature is helping you connect with those who have passed on and you feel it.  It’s an amazing time for you to meet a new partner and you may even get serious with one or two.

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

Mysterious and unusual circumstances follow you no matter where you go.  What else is new?  Many secrets seem to be around you now, but they are not too important anyway, so you should not be concerned.  Just ignore the negative energy and you will be just fine.  A few hospital tests or visiting someone in the hospital may be at hand.  Uncovering your passion for reading, learning, creativity and artist pursuits will help calm you down and clarify the things that have been bothering you.  Spirituality is always a fine way of getting back to the things you believe in. Teaching or taking a class or two will help you attain the confidence you need to move forward in a very positive way.  The year is like a rose starting to blossom a little each day.

December 2018 Horoscopes

Important dates:  December 7th, Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day; the 21st, The Winter Solstice/Sun enters Capricorn; the 25th, Christmas; and the 26th, Kwanzaa.

WINTER HOLIDAY TIPS

Have holiday lights on if it is appropriate to your holiday. Nothing brings guests better than a light display during the holidays. Put lights on timers so that you don’t have to be home to have your lights come on. This also lets others think you are home when you may be off holiday shopping or visiting family, friends or neighbors. (As an aside, I also have motion lights on my house to cover the whole yard, driveway and front walkway for the same reason).

If you are a baker, bake all the great cookies and breads you usually do for the holidays. Nothing invites family, friends and neighbors in general to come into your home more than freshly baked items with those wonderful aromas filling your home and seeping through your doors or windows. Do you need to bake so many cookies? How many can we eat? After the holidays, I get to throw a good deal of them out to my squirrels which live on my property and they say thank you.

Have all of your shopping and wrapping done early. You can buy presents all year long and wait until after Thanksgiving for larger items or items that you want to make sure you can return.

Decorate the house at different times. You can put up the tree one night and then put up window and yard decorations over the next few days. Be sure the children are home, so that they can assist in making your home look beautiful for the holidays. Even though I’m sure they’ll complain at having to work and do something as lame as put up Christmas or holiday decorations, it will be good to show the children that these holidays are for families and families work together.

Write holiday cards when you have a few spare minutes throughout the fall. Many people put names and addresses on computer labels and I must admit I did that for many years. I have learned that they are very impersonal and it’s just like you are saying that you wanted to get that chore out of the way as quickly as possible and had no regard for the person it was being sent to. I hand write all my envelopes and messages inside each card rather than writing a longer typed Christmas-gram. It’s more personal and it’s very rare, so your card will stand out. I have received many comments on my original notes and how refreshing they were.

When getting ready to have a holiday party at your home, here are some tips: clean the house one day, set up the tables and cooking/serving dishes and glasses you will need another day (pop them in the dishwasher if they haven’t been used since the last big holiday), do the food shopping and preparing what you can ahead of time and on the day of the party, you can relax, get ready in a stress-free environment and have fun! Clean up can be done tomorrow or after your guests have gone. Some people actually pitch in and clean up as they go. If this is all right with you, by all means, accept the help. You’ve worked hard!

Or throw a load of dishes and glasses in the dishwasher, go to bed and rest so you can face the mess ahead of you in the light of day with a strong cup of coffee or tea in your hand!

Do simple things to help your party run smoother. Prepare the coffee ahead of time so that when it is time for your guests to have coffee (or tea), all you have to do is plug the pot in.

Put your milk pitcher in the refrigerator filled with cold water so it will be kept colder for a longer period of time after serving.

Make sure your table linens are clean. Check them at least a week before your party and clean what needs to be washed or sent to the dry cleaners.

Have holiday music playing in the background but be sure it is calming music and not blaring to disturb your guests. The idea is to let everyone enjoy themselves which includes chatting to one another to catch up on their lives with soft music playing in the background so you can hear one another.

Be careful about mistletoe. Many guests are shy so if they do not kiss the person they find under it, you may kid them about it once, but then let it go.

If this is a pot luck dinner, prepare a menu so you can tell everyone what they could bring to your home. If it’s not a pot luck dinner but others ask what they may bring, you can always suggest gourmet dips, crackers, breads, wine, sparkling apple cider, eggnog, a bottle of liquor or any dessert a dessert of their choice. Tell them how many guests you are expecting.

You do not need to put out every holiday decoration you have. As the children leave the nest, you can put up a modest yet tasteful display of decorations. The holidays are for us to relax and enjoy the season, not stress over all the decorations, where to move the furniture until after the holidays and rush out to buy the biggest live Christmas tree you can find. I find live trees dangerous, messy (I found pine needles the next July stuck in my rug and eventually my feet!). They need constant water and they seem to dry up quickly. Be careful.

Is an artificial tree out of the question? There are so many kinds of artificial trees that are pre-lit (a gift from Heaven) and in so many shapes and sizes, do we really have to spend a lot of money year after year and have yet another beautiful part of nature being cut down, destroyed and then burned when they are not sold? An artificial tree can be purchased after the holidays for very reasonable prices and they look good for at least ten years if cared for properly.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Unexpected expenditures can eat up your finances quickly.  Be sure to try to buy what you need and not what you want.  Do not be too generous during the holidays this year as you usually are. Spending money for the holidays is just the beginning.  You will have fun, enjoy holiday celebrations and won’t think twice about spending more than planned on a gift for a loved one.  Your generosity of spirit is magnetic and extends to your friends who will expect an extra special gift.  You may over spend on those you love.  Career opportunities are plentiful and you are probably considering changing jobs or parts of your job that will bring you more attention, more income or where you will use your intellect.  Things are getting boring. Your attention is not on work at this time, but in planning all the wonderful shopping, parties, travel and fun you hope to have during this month.  Your practical side comes into play where you realize you need more rest and must limit your help to others who are always taking advantage of your kind nature.  All in all, you are on the go, having fun, and connecting with friends and family who love your company.

TAURUS – April 18 – May 19

Communication is important now.  Are you writing a book or being more creative during this time? If not, this will bring you much peace and happiness, so give it a try.  Holiday travel seems important; however, make sure your travel plans are solid before venturing to your holiday destinations.  Family conflicts may arise and seem unimportant to you, but the issues are important to others.  Be tactful with your partner since much energy seems to want to make you “right” or in control of every situation.  If you keep a cool head and compromise where appropriate, things should run quite smoothly. Don’t get into a battle of wits with your family and friends since this is the season of forgiveness and peace of mind, body and spirit.  Change is good even though you may not feel it at the present time.  If you find yourself in unexpected circumstances, just know that you are being guided on a different path.  You may not wish to travel on this path; however, it would be in your best interest to at least look at the wonderful changes around you and the opportunities it will bring for future happiness, prosperity and good health.

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

Home life tends to get somewhat stressful as you try to plan the perfect holiday party.  This is a time for communication with family and let them know what you expect from them from the holidays and what you expect them to do to help you arrange a beautiful family gathering.  Balance issues between your work load in your career and the responsibilities of your family weigh you down.  Why can’t you delegate?  Is it up to you to handle everything?  Miscommunication is prevalent this month so be clear about your intent or what you are asking others to do for you.  Repeat things so that you are on the same page as well.  Are you working too much so that you are not avail Compromise is needed to avoid arguments with your partner or loved ones since you just don’t have much time to think things through properly and make an informed decision.  You also get annoyed when people question where your time is spent and that you may be able to organize your life better.  You do more than most of the other signs and you would like to be acknowledged for that, but just be happy that you are able to run your life the way you want to or else, you just pick up and find happiness elsewhere.   

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

Love life and family seems to bring you much happiness and joy, even though you are handling too much of the responsibility. Be open to new relationships or trying to make your current ones better. New beginnings in the home, perhaps redecorating or some much needed repair projects, help you focus on your goals for the future.  You may be starting over or feel as if you need the changes that are being thrust upon you.  Make buying presents a special family occasion.  Even though you may feel that change is unsettling, it will be a positive experience, so give it a chance.  A good time to take care of any health issues so they won’t get worse.  Differences of traditions and philosophies of life will be tested and you may be persuaded to look at things from different perspectives.  Even though you may want to stay home this holiday season, be a bit flexible if your partner wants to travel to visit family.  Staying home means you have to cook and entertain; however, it also makes you feel comfortable to be in your own home to do whatever you want to.  Using your intellect to make decisions rather than emotional ones will help you choose the better option. 

LEO – July 22 – August 22

Partnerships may not be as stable as you would like.  Take time to find out what is bothering your personal/business partner.  It will be worth it in the end. It is important for you to entertain your family and friends, but be mindful of your health.  Take enough time for yourself and let others give you a hand in the kitchen or with the preparations.  This is a good time to rejuvenate, relax and do whatever you feel is important for yourself and your happiness.  It is a time to help others get more organized and as usual, you help others with their challenges and issues and are always going the extra mile.  This is also a time where you will take on the responsibility of a family issue.  Do the best you can to help those family members compromise; however, don’t beat yourself up if it does not go the way you feel it should.  You have done your best and sometimes things just have to work themselves out.    Arguing is probable if you let yourself get caught up in the politics of an issue.  Be aware of the explosive energy surrounding you and do your best to diffuse all negative situations.  

VIRGO – August 23 – September 21

Unusual circumstances may make you realize that things may not be as you originally thought.  Double check what people say to you and get everything in writing.  This is not a great time to trust acquaintances. Holidays are always stressful, so if you are more relaxed and plan well in advance, your holidays will run quite smoothly.  Getting your list and checking it twice is a great way for a Virgo to start their holiday shopping.  Know what you want to spend and then comparison shop so you get the best price for the item, as if you wouldn’t do that anyway! Try not to take life so seriously now as it is supposed to be fun.  If there are any issues that you do not agree with, let them go for now and deal with them after the holidays.  Situations with personal and business partnerships may be confusing and upsetting at times, so be prepared to stand your ground and give your frank opinion in a tactful manner.  Career may be changing in many ways and it would be helpful for you to know in which direction you would like to proceed.  Do you want your own home-based business?  If so, go for it now as the energy around you is positive and open to so many wonderful possibilities to accomplish your future goals and dreams.  

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

Spending money for beautiful things is a constant in your life; however, it may be time to ask your partner if he or she agrees with your gift choices.  Ask for his or her opinions of gifts for the family and your closest friends.  Consulting a partner on financial choices or where you spend the family riches will allow you to spend more freely.  Much good energy is around you so plan what steps you would like to take to accomplish some dreams and goals.  Your personality shifts to being more self-confident with less issues regarding insecurities and anxieties.  This is the time for you to accomplish what needs to be done.  Career, travel and spiritual pursuits all seem to become important at the same time so be prepared to be scattered and yet, you will be having the time of your life exploring all the possibilities around you.    

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

You are interested in getting a makeover or buying new clothes that may be a new fashion style.  You are updating your look and it does make others notice you a bit more. Traveling may be tricky so it would be best for you to double check your plans as it seems that there may be a minor glitch that hinders you in some your way. This does not mean that you should not travel, but it seems to be a time where extra planning and alternative plans will keep everyone calm and in control of their holidays!  Running around at the last minute to get your shopping done can be exhausting task, so use the web to order some on line gifts, if you feel that’s appropriate.  You just need some down time, relaxation time, and family time for your own enjoyment and well-being.  You would like to plan things in advance and that’s a wonderful idea, but be flexible enough to know that all plans do not turn out exactly as we hope.  Unexpected outcomes many times are better than our original plans.  Go with the flow.  Have a wonderful time.  

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

You want to learn a lot of things – you enjoy knowledge.  Classes, lectures or seminars may be popping up over the next few months that would be beneficial to you in some way.  There may also be some training classes that you need to take for your job. Get up and go to holiday parties, friends’ get-togethers or that holiday getaway with a loved one even though he or she may not want to leave home.  Try to be a little more sensitive with a loved one’s feelings as it seems you may be somewhat tactless or thoughtless to his or her needs.  This may be because you are so caught up in the whirlwind around you, or the holiday season, that you don’t have time for petty nonsense.  You may be on different wavelengths so try to find common ground.  Home life may be a bit too hectic for your taste and you may try to go out or not deal with specific issues.  They will not go away, so deal with them directly.  A good outcome will result from any effort you put into making positive changes in work, formal education, long distance travel and finances, so start thinking about which areas of life you would like to change and start making a few small changes throughout the season. 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

Networking becomes effortless as you meet many more people through new clubs, memberships and organizations. New friends and associations help propel your career through this holiday season.  Be careful not to let your personal and business lives conflict with each other as it won’t be worth the time and trouble.  Deal with each area of life separately and complete any unfinished projects or endeavors.  Being organized for the upcoming year will help you get a jump on your goals.  Lists will help you with this organization and will help you focus on your priority issues.  Go out and have some fun.  You can’t be all business or too serious now since this is the time to be happy and jolly!  Accept holiday party invitations and do some of the entertaining yourself.  You will feel very relaxed and others will appreciate your thoughtfulness. 

AQUARIUS – January 19 – February 17

Many changes that you needed in your life for a while are now starting to occur. Be certain about your goals and go after them. Your creative and artistic abilities are amplified during this festive season so don’t be afraid to show off your abilities to family and friends.  Spirituality is more important as you unfold the meaning of your traditional beliefs.  This is a good time to think about what you want to do in the future, perhaps in a creative field or perhaps to take creative classes you never had the time to take in the past.  What a wonderful time for you to look into new cultures and traditions. You may wish to kick back and unwind during the holidays and not have the traditional holiday meals or parties with your family.  You may wish to keep a day for yourself where you could organize your home, entertain other family members or friends or just relax and watch the blinking lights on the Christmas tree or other holiday decorations.  Energy abounds and you wish to accomplish so much.  You can do anything you need to do at this time, but limit yourself to a few tasks per day so you can re-energize and continue on the fast track that you have been living on for the last year.

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

You have lots to do, but you may feel as if you would rather just watch TV, read or do things around the house.  You may be procrastinating a bit around the holidays.  Do one thing each day, so that when the holidays are here, you will be ready to celebrate!  Loved ones would be adaptable enough when unexpected circumstances change your plans at the last minute.  These changes may be better than your original plans.  If circumstances seem confusing or dramatic, this is the best time to take that energy and turn it into a positive result.  Things go very well, then fall apart, so it’s best that you just deal with situations as they happen rather than projecting the best or worst scenario for them. The negativity around you is disappearing and you need to reinforce the positive energy that you know is protecting and guiding you to do the right thing.  Love issues may be a tender spot, so understand what the issue is and then do something to resolve it.  Using your mental agility will help you to optimistically deal with any concerns that come your way.  Career issues may be pushed to the foreground and some very important decisions about your future will need to be made.  Be sure you have all the facts before jumping to conclusions that may be incorrect.  Now is the time to make appropriate adjustments to goals.

November 2018 Horoscopes

Important dates: November 1, All Saints’ Day; and the 22nd, Thanksgiving.

Autumn Energies

Autumn is a time of the year which represents balance and enlightenment.  It gives us the power to look back over the spring and summer to see if we had fulfilled our goals, dreams, aspirations and desires.  It makes us realize that procrastination is a negative force in the universe, a blocking of life force energy, (chi), that will not allow us to go happily in to our futures.  We need to be persistent in our goals and must create, journey and explore our universe to find our true happiness and discover what boundless accomplishments we could bestow upon the world. It is a selfless time to contemplate, meditate and dream of your futures. It gives us that much needed pause to slow down and start prioritizing our lives so that we can make it the best we can with the most positive results for all involved.

The Autumnal Equinox is also about celebrating what you have accomplished and reveling in those positive accomplishments.  It is a magnificent time to think of others and realize how lucky we truly are to have journeyed far into ourselves with understanding, truth and compassion.  This makes us realize that any charitable gesture or action can make a difference in someone’s life no matter how small and the feeling of sharing, giving, exchanging and bartering your gifts with others will always make you feel blessed and humble as you help your fellow human beings in this third dimensional plane.

When the leaves start to fall, it is as though the universe has given in to the rationalization that all things must eventually die and be reborn in due course. It is the never-ending cycle or circle of life that we have become accustomed to.  It is life as we know it. This is our second chance to make things right, to find that balance within us and to live life the way we had always intended…with peace, love, harmony, joy, good health and an abundance in all things.  Happy Autumn to all!

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Family discussions about the holidays and other matters keep you on your toes.  You thought a lot of this craziness was behind you; however, you have a little bit more to go.  Deal with issues as they happen and don’t respond as you always do.  The calmer you remain, the calmer the situation will be.  This is a great time to get things settled with siblings and family members in general.  If having the holidays at your home, be prepared ahead of time and don’t let others tell you what you should have or who you should invite.  It is time to set some boundaries. Emotions on everyone’s side seem to be blown out of proportion. Finances may be too confusing now to make a final decision on what needs to be done, but start the process going.  You are thinking in the right direction. Make the month work. 

TAURUS – April 18 – May 19

Family life seems to improve.  You are getting your way about holiday plans and are deciding whether or not to have the Thanksgiving dinner at your home.  If not practical, you may be deciding what you need to make for the occasion and take it to another family members’ home.  For a holiday season, you tend to be a bit under the weather or somewhat depressed.  Maybe it’s the holidays, but it seems as if you need to get things decided in your life and you may even have to move on with or dismiss plans that you have already made.  Career gets crazy and you feel as if you are overburdened with stress and continuous questions from people who could not possibly know what you are going through.  Keep a level head and be your same logical self and things will fall into place in no time at all.

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

Your creativity and artistic abilities are proven over and over again.  You get into so many different areas of expertise that you sometimes even amaze yourself.  Asking what you could make or bring to a family gathering will be very much appreciated, but if you are too busy, stopping at a gourmet bakery or fruit shop will keep you in good graces.  Love issues may be stirring and you may have to make some difficult decisions about your romantic future.  Deciding on plans to either go for further education, classes and training or perhaps wanting to save for a wonderful vacation next year may keep off balance. Being too sensitive now will not help you decide what you need to do to be happy.  Handle your concerns with intellect and logic and you will make perfect decisions. 

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

Partnerships are going well.  Different viewpoints need to be considered and a compromise that will benefit both of you would be best. Even though you may be invited out or having a special get together at your home for the holidays, make sure you have plenty of alone time to spend with the one you love.  You may need some special time together to get over any disagreements or things that have not been settled. Career is going well and there may even be some interesting changes that you will be quite surprised with.  This is a good time to stand up for yourself and let others know that you now have boundaries which they may not cross.  The days of you being the giver seem to be coming to an end.  You may now have to learn your lesson of receiving from others.

LEO – July 22 – August 22

Try to get things done in a timely manner.  People are depending upon you.  Money issues can be dealt with properly and easily if you just realize that some habits may have to change.  You can be the most delightful host/hostess when you want to be, so put on that smile, make the best dinner you could possibly make and if there are any negative people at your gathering, ignore them for the sake of the holiday.   There’s always one to bring everyone else down, but it is not going to happen to you this year.  You are prepared, you feel energized and ready for anything.  Keep the peace within the family and especially keep an eye on your partner.  (S)he may feel neglected so make an extra effort to make him/her feel special and loved.  Compliment him/her on everything they have done to contribute to a great holiday. 

VIRGO – August 23 – September 21

Many new positive changes will affect you and your partner. Money issues may really start to annoy the both of you.  Money is being spent on things that both of you have not agreed on.  Some compromise and good conversation are all that is needed to deflate the possible explosion of emotion.  If money is tight during the holidays, you can always ask family and friends to bring a side dish or dessert (as well as their favorite drink) to your holiday dinner.  Many people do this, so join the club so you do not have to get stressed out.  This is a great time to make your ideas and plans known on the job.  Your creativity and innovative ideas will help get you that promotion or more responsibility for more money that you’ve been dreaming of.  Finally, you may be able to get an assistant or temp help to move things forward in a positive manner on the job or in your home.  You need to rest and take care of yourself. 

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

You seem to be very sensitive now and may cry at the drop of a hat.  You need to gain your composure and handle the responsibilities and obligations you were meant to.  The holidays should actually make you feel more confident about your life; getting into the spirit with decorations and gift giving will be an absolute joy for you.  Many emotions seem to be blown out of proportion and it’s almost as if you just don’t know what you want.  Partnerships confuse you and you just need to be more self-confident and gather up your inner strength and courage to make important decisions.  Do not procrastinate too long on important decisions because some of the opportunities will pass you by.  Traveling for the holidays is a possibility if you can find the money and decide on where you would like to go.  Visiting family and/or friends is always a safe bet around the holidays.  It will be a more reasonable alternative to higher priced vacations and you should be with people who love you. 

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

There is much intense energy going on in your life especially in career.  Good opportunities are on their way and there may even be a raise or promotion in the near future.  If having any festivities at your home, be sure to do a little each day so that you are not overwhelmed at home.  You need to clean the house one day, prepare food on the next day and then cook everything on the third.  You will be so organized that you will amaze others with your organizational skills.  In this way, you may also join your guests because everything will be ready ahead of time.  New opportunities abound.  There seems to be an abundance of good luck and interesting decisions that will lead you into new beginnings and new ventures.  Be open to change.  Take appropriate risks and be optimistic about your future.  Everything is waiting there for you, so just grab those opportunities and get on the right path quickly.

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

It would be a good idea to invite friends to your home for the holidays.  Even if you are fortunate enough to have family and friends around you, not everyone does, so count your blessings. Friendships will be very important now, so be prepared to know who is or is not your friend.  When new people come into your life that seem as if they want to be your new best friend, be very careful about telling them many secrets.  Deception, secrets and talking behind your back (gossip from jealousy or envy) is very probable.  Stand up for yourself and don’t pretend you don’t know it exists.  If you don’t stand up for yourself, it just gets worse.  Finances need a tweak here and there.  Saving more can help you long term.  Just buy what you need and not what you want at this time.  Many are escaping to the south for the winter, so if this is you – have a great time and don’t forget your sunscreen. 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

There seems to be a total change in the way you perceive things; you also want to change what you are not happy with.  Your personal style, wardrobe and perhaps even holiday decorations or traditions are all equally on the chopping block.  When you say it has to go, then it has to go!  You would like new excitement and adventure.  Caps want to looker younger, thinner, and healthier and so you start many new regiments of a healthier you from exercising to eating better.  You are also trying to be calmer and may even want to study meditation or learn how to contact your angels for whatever blessings you need in your life.  Be very careful not to make everything change at once, which will be your inclination.  Slow changes are best so you and everyone around you can acclimate to them.  As far as the holidays, it depends on what you want to do now.  It seems like a small intimate dinner for Thanksgiving is on the agenda.  You are getting tired of too many people around you, especially those who are always needy and asking you for favors.  

AQUARIUS – January 19 – February 17

You are so good with money and you are doing even more in budgeting what you have and trying to get the most of your funds.  The holidays are going to be a bit more frugal this year (as with most people), but you are going to shop at sales, auctions, flea markets and thrift stores and will do very well.  If having the Thanksgiving holiday at your home, be decisive and ask others to bring the things you will need to make your generosity go a little bit further.  A bottle of liquor or appetizers are always a nice way for others to participate in the holiday.  Aquarians also have many decisions to make about home life and partners in their lives, such as, “Do I need a partner now?” and “Are the partners I’m with (or dating) right for me?  Will they make my life complete?”  Questions about changing your job may arise as well since you may not be too happy at your current position.  Do you want to start your own home-based business?  Many decisions need to be made so you can move forward without any interruption in your routine.  You need to leave the stress behind.

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

Your finances seem to be going in a much better direction if you don’t do something ridiculous like gamble or play the lottery.  Keep extra funds in a bank so you can save to have whatever it is you need.  This is not the time to buy anything that you want now and you can get those items by just putting them on your Christmas list.  If Thanksgiving is at your home, why not make it fun by having an early afternoon buffet lunch and then having finger foods later in the day with coffee and desserts.  This type of set up will keep the pressure off of you and will allow others to mingle and chat with one another.  You may want to learn many different religions or metaphysical subjects or just may want to take new classes that will help you on a spiritual level.  Important papers should be looked over and changed if needed.  Be prepared for anything that may come your way.  Be organized, in control and try to get more grounded and your month will be wonderful!

September 2018 Horoscopes

Important Dates:  September 3, Labor Day; 9th, Grandparents’ Day; 10th, Rosh Hashanah begins; the 21st, the International Day of Peace and the 24th, Sukkoth begins.

Save Our Planet and Put Money in Your Pocket

I have been trying for some time to help the planet in my own way, and I will share some of the things you can do to help our planet.  Some suggestions are:

Don’t run the tap water while you are brushing your teeth and doing the dishes.

Turn off the TV or lights when you go into another room for any length of time.  As my father used to say to my mother when we were young, “What is this, a light house?”  Save energy when possible.

Set air conditioning at 73-74 degrees if it is a programmable unit, otherwise you can always just turn it to medium.

Keep heat at 68 degrees or lower in the winter.  A sweater goes a long way to keeping one warm.

Clean out your freezer and refrigerator.  Eat leftovers or at least know what you have so that you don’t duplicate your purchase and may have to throw away more food.

Use cloth napkins on your table and let your family use their napkin all day before tossing them into the wash.  You are doing laundry anyway, so just toss them into the washing machine when needed.  Don’t do the laundry unless you have a full load of clothes.

Plant trees around your yard for the natural way to cool down your home during the hot summer months.

If you are having a BBQ or party in your home, think of using your regular dishes and silverware which can be washed and reused.  Most of us have several sets of dishes so it can be fun to mix and match dinnerware.  The dishwasher is an efficient way of cleaning your dishes afterwards and again, you’ve saved the planet. Buy biodegradable plates and utensils instead of disposable ones for any BBQ or event if you must use them.

When having a picnic, BBQ or get together, ask your guests to bring a bottle of wine, side dish or dessert to offset the cost of the party.  You will also have time to enjoy your guests because you don’t have to worry about the dessert and coffee coming out at the right time, etc.

You can buy used furniture at auctions, the Salvation Army, a garage sale or off of the web.  Much furniture is in very good condition and is a fraction of the cost and it keeps you from buying new.

Buy two-year old cars.  New cars lose 20% of their value just driving off of the lot.  You can get a good car for less money and a new car did not have to be produced just for you.

Use reusable containers instead of aluminum foil or plastic wrap.

If you are buying new appliances, get the efficient energy savings rated ones.

Have your home checked for window, door or attic leaks.  If your home is not air tight, you are throwing your heating and air conditioning dollars away every hour of the day and night.

Get low flow shower heads and/or chlorine filters for your shower head.  Apparently, we are absorbing 100 times of chlorine into our skin in an average 10-minute shower just as if we were drinking 100 glasses of tap water.  That’s pretty unsettling.

Use old maps as wrapping paper. (I was recently at a baby shower and the person having the shower asked that no presents be wrapped to save on paper.  A card was attached to each gift!)  Reuse gift bags and save wrapping paper from another gift, if possible.  Use recycled paper for your gifts.  Gift cards are a handy gift so that your gift recipient can get exactly what (s)he needs and there’s no wrapping!

Refill plastic water bottles with filtered water, iced or green tea, Crystal Light or anything else you like to drink.  You can reuse these bottles many times before throwing them in the recycle bin.

Print on the back side of used paper if you can or use the paper for scrap.  Save a tree and save money by not having to buy as much new paper for your home printer.

Bring a ceramic mug into work (probably the cost of one purchased coffee) with you so you don’t have to use paper or Styrofoam cups.  Encourage other employees to do the same.  Stop using plastic straws with beverages.

Instead of buying $4 lattes, bring your own travel mug to work with homebrewed coffee or tea.  You are saving money and the use of paper cups.

The Kindle has saved many trees from being torn down or you can borrow books from a library.

Magazines can be passed around to friends.  The impact on trees would be extraordinary and you will save some money in the meantime.  I also leave them at doctors’ offices so others can read them too.

Support local farmers in season!  It may be a little more expensive, but you can trust your veggies and fruits aren’t GMOs and are fresh.

Use reusable shopping bags instead of paper or plastic.  Many have them in their car trunks but never get them into the stores. Store them in the back seat so you will easily see them for any shopping visits.

Plan a circular route to all of the places you need to go so that you don’t waste gasoline (prices are ridiculous) or time.

Use a compost pile in your yard rather than throwing out food into the garbage which gets piled into dump sites.  You will have helped the planet and will be starting to have some pretty good soil for your own plants and trees.  Up here in the Poconos, the groups of deer who visit the property have a good variety of fruits and veggies, as well as their outer skins, that they love to eat.  They just about eat anything.

Sell stuff you don’t want on eBay, Craigslist or have a garage sale.  You will be getting a few dollars for your unwanted stuff and may be helping someone else get a perfectly good used item that (s)he would have otherwise had to purchase new.

Buy reusable or recycled products.

Buy bulk items which reduce wasteful packaging.

Reuse boxes or cartons to ship your own items.

Car pool to work, a party or an event to save on gasoline.  Public transportation is also a great way of getting home safety if you have had too much to drink at a party.

Bring in a lunch from home to save you money.  Even if you only spend $5 a day on lunch and $3 a day on coffee, that’s $8 a day, $40 per week, $160 per month or $1820 a year (probably the price of a great vacation!).

If you have leftovers you won’t eat this week, freeze them for another time so you may use them when you don’t have time to cook because of an appointment or event.

Visit local state parks which are usually free and close to home.

Take walks with your loved ones or walk a pet for exercise and entertainment.

Use windshield wiper fluid to clean indoor windows and mirrors.  This is a big savings over Windex and being this was formulated for outdoor use, it gets rid of dirt and grime easily.

Use newspapers to clean the windows and mirrors.  They clean better and you are not wasting paper towels.  Or buy the KAYWOS cloth available at www.kaywos.com.  You just wet it, clean a mirror, window, car windows, the car, a glass table, etc., and you do not have to dry it.  Then rinse and dry for the next use.  No harmful chemicals will be used in your home.

Buy recycled paper products such as bath tissue and paper towels, if possible.

Less than 20% of all plastic bottles are recycled.  Many are thrown into the ocean and can last for several hundred years before breaking down harming marine life.  That should make us rethink the use of plastic in our lifetimes.

Set up a paperless bill paying system with your bank or your creditor’s website.  You don’t have to pay postage, use an envelope and waste time writing a check!

I hope you can use some of these helpful hints to save our planet and keep some money in your pocket at the same time!

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Good luck seems to finally be following you around so get out and do what you want to be doing instead of only always handling your responsibilities.  You need to flourish and grow.  You should try to work on your own self cultivation and interests.  Do you have time for yourself?  When was the last time you tried your hand at one of your hobbies?  Are you stressed and unfulfilled?  Handle one or two major responsibilities each day but leave time for you to learn, be nurtured and accumulate knowledge.  What a great time to have some fun and let go of your overpowering responsibilities and obligations.  Romantic relationships are fun and you should try to get away to interesting and secluded destinations for a mini vacation.  Try to lighten up and chill a little.  Your hectic life style is not healthy. Be resourceful with your money as you seem to want to spend it like it’s going out of style.  Buy new clothes to replace outdated fashions, but you may not need as much as you think you do.  Feeling carefree and as if life is finally giving you the small break deserve to get your life back on track, makes you feel refreshed, relaxed and ready for more challenges. 

TAURUS – April 18 – May 19

Partnership issues and relationships are of key importance now.  New beginnings, good communication and new adventures seem to be before you, so nurture the energy while it is here.  You are endeavoring to go into so many wonderful directions and receive splendid opportunities to help push you to a bright future.  You are strong (and yet a bit insecure) about taking these big steps, but you can do it.  Life is interesting, especially with your romantic partner.  Many new wonderful opportunities are being presented to you regarding business and personal partnerships; however, there is much going on to confuse the situation as well.  You need to decide what you need from a relationship and then choose whether or not your current partner helps you meet those goals.  Some challenges appear in school or your career. Perhaps thinking of changing your viewpoint on issues would help you understand things that have eluded you. Be positive about changes in your life and go with the flow since change is inevitable and it might as well be in your best interest. 

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

Dealing with many issues regarding business and personal partnerships can be confusing and exhausting.  Miscommunication and a loss of wonderful opportunities are possible if you don’t get on the right track. There is just too much to do, but because you are overwhelmed and not as organized as you normally are, many opportunities will pass you by.  You wish you had more time to do the mundane tasks in life like clean the house, pay the bills, do the grocery shopping, etc. and yet you are glad that your creative juices are flowing and that you are handling your artistic and spiritual sides.  Getting your important papers in order seems to be on your mind, so just do it and get on with your life.  Organization, prioritizing and securing your life seems to help you understand what you need to positively proceed in to your future.  Hard work, study, social events and volunteer work help you network and get your name out there a lot quicker than staying home and doing accomplishing little around the house or with home projects.  Things have been crazy lately, but they will calm down soon.  Handle the many little jobs you need to get done so you can clear your mind of the clutter. You should take a new class in jewelry making, painting, poetry, writing, etc., to get those creative juices flowing again.  

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

Finances are your main concern, yet again.  Things are going in a positive direction for you, but you need to make some hard decisions about your money and possessions.  How important are they to you?  Is your family more important?  You may find out that money and possessions aren’t the only things you need in this lifetime.  Moon children are trying to make a very secure future for their loved ones, but they do get sidetracked easily so keep on your path and go to the future and find wonderful rewards. Long distance travel, higher education (including training classes, lectures, seminars, workshops, etc.) will benefit you on your job or in getting a better job.  Focus on the many great opportunities that are around you so you can grab them and make them a reality. Dealing with financial issues would also help you to focus on your future goals.  Changes in home life seem positive, so don’t be afraid to go with the flow now as you are in control of your destiny (even if you don’t believe it!).  Compromise should be your family’s mantra this month.  Be smart and let others do the talking.  Your job is to listen and acknowledge others.

LEO – July 22 – August 22

This is a great time to make a plan of action about your direction in life.  Taking control of your situations would help you move in that direction.  Even when situations do not go your way, your determination and persistence make anything possible.  Travel, higher education and your philosophies of life will aide you to get to your desired goal.  Stop thinking on such a grand scale and take care of the small stuff first so that the larger stuff can take care of itself. Learning how to react in all situations helps you feel more confident and as if you can take on the world.  Your tolerance levels are improving and you realize that not everyone can be exactly like you or have your unbelievably high standards. Start celebrating the differences around you rather than relying on consistency.  Romance is also in the air.  If already attached, it seems that you will most likely have a change of heart and want to change things about the relationship or change the relationship itself! If not attached, you will finally want to commit to the one you love. Try to show the ones you love how much you really care about them by showing them affection and attention.  

VIRGO – August 23 – September 21

Career issues seem to be moving in a different direction and they seem very positive!  You feel more in control of your life and its direction as you start to see the accomplishments and kudos that others are giving you for your contributions.  Even though you may be somewhat pessimistic about some areas of life, your spirit will lift as things you’ve wanted start coming to you.  Career seems to be the most important issue around you this month.  You use your intellect and logic to get to your goals, but you may also find yourself expressing yourself much too much. You may be totally misunderstood now so choose your words carefully. Expansion and promotions are on the horizon and if you play the game.  It will be much easier for your company to finally recognize what you do for them.  If self-employed, this is an excellent time to expand and try new markets as success is in the air. Scattered energy, intellectual abilities, a zest for life and work push you to so many positive avenues.  Be open to opportunities so that when opportunity knocks, you can open the door. 

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

Friendships may change or will be strained by an event or situation that you are not comfortable with.  Talk things out or you may lose someone close to you or someone whom you depend upon.  You may also be handling many situations for others as well, so get your life in order before helping those you love.  You want action, change and to keep going in a positive direction so join groups, travel, have fun and meet new people.  You shine this month, so be prepared for adventure.  Networking is an important tool to help you accomplish your goals.  More friends come into your life and you seem to make very important partnerships with them.  Joining associations and volunteer organizations will help you achieve some of your goals.  Start visualizing which hopes, dreams and wishes you would like to manifest and start promoting them as a positive thought each day.  Don’t handle too many obligations and responsibilities as you usually do.  Balance is the key to a happier life. This is a great time to let others pay you back for all the kindnesses you have given them throughout the years.  Smile and just say thank you to those who wish to help and you will be surprised at how easy it will be to accomplish everything. 

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

It seems as if many situations are unfolding and you are trying to sort through them all.  Prioritize your list so that you deal with only the most important issues now.  You can always do the small stuff later.  Changing your appearance, going for a makeover, taking a class to learn something new and deciding what you truly want out of life is before you.  Choose wisely. Much good luck and positive energy seems to favor you, so do the impossible.  You want to accomplish so much, but your scattered energy and varied obligations keep you from fulfilling your dreams.  Creativity and illusion play an important role in relationships, so see reality for what it is.  Partnerships need to be re-examined and steps taken to fix all the issues that are making you annoyed.  Be patient and tolerant now as others are trying to live up to your expectations; however, sometimes you expect too much from others.  They will appreciate the kind words.  Accept help from others.  Focus on your future results so that you attract the energy that you need to accomplish your goals. 

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

This is an opportune time to budget for the things you truly need.  Your wants can come at another time.  You get obsessive about saving for a particular project or item and you will do all you can to make it happen in a relatively short period of time.  Traveling, running around like a chicken without your head and spending money seem to be your issues for this month.  Being the soft-hearted person that you are, you want to help others but this may be the time to concentrate on your partner and yourself.  Sensitivity is high and change is in the air.  Career or company differences may force you to leave your current position for a new and better one where you will be praised for your opinions, hard work and intellect.  After dealing with so many recent changes and challenges, it will be nice to be able to sit back and relax.  Love life is blooming; however, it just doesn’t seem that your partner and you get too much time together due to varied obligations and responsibilities.  Spend quality time together, if possible. 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

Family issues seem to be your main concern.  Deal with the outstanding problems and do whatever you can to make peace easily.  Things will settle down and you will feel as if you’ve accomplished much.  Sibling issues may arise again; however, if you do not have siblings, then it may be issues with those you feel are as close to you as a sibling would be. Family related issues need to be dealt with quickly so that everyone can be at ease with each other, friendly and peaceful.  Short distance travel is activated, so go for that long weekend trip and take a friend or family member.  A lovely drive to the shore or up to the mountains will rejuvenate you!  You really need some quiet time for contemplation or meditation since you have had too many issues on your mind; you also need a good night’s rest.  If additional training or schooling is required (for a new career or self-employment position), this is a great time to start looking into courses for your advancement.  Whatever you do to enhance your career is very positive. 

AQUARIUS – January 19 – February 17

It is time to chill and get some relaxation and enjoyment out of life.  You are handling so much lately that you barely have time to sit down to watch TV or read the paper.  Your obligations are many, your responsibilities take up your leisure, but with you handling so much, you will be surprised at how quickly things will finally fall into place.  There are many unusual circumstances around your family and close friends that you may want to handle.  Creativity is enhanced now, so don’t let it pass you by.  Take an adult education course in something creative or that would help you use your imagination and innovative abilities.  Journaling your thoughts or a dream journal are fun hobbies.  Your mind is so preoccupied with so many things to do that you don’t seem to be setting any time aside for yourself.  Taking care of others is a wonderful gift to them; however, it would be a special gift to yourself if you thought of how to make your life a little less frantic and overwhelming by concentrating on your needs.  Handling family issues is overpowering, but you seem to have the coolest head in the family and your stability is very much appreciated.

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

There may be changes in romantic relationships or you are looking for love in all the wrong places!  Be open to having friends or family set up blind dates as they only have your best interest at heart.  Be open to meeting those who you may feel do not meet your criteria as you may be surprised.  So many things seem to overwhelm you now, but you are going into better times with fantastic opportunities just ahead of you.  School or training is fun but should be used to help move you forward and not just as an escape.  Moving from your current residence, or if that is not an option, redecorating your home to make it seem totally different will make you feel as if you have accomplished the impossible – making your home feel the way it should, safe and secure, beautiful and new.  Things may be intense from time to time, but once you make your mind up to go into a certain direction, you will be free to just go and accomplish everything that is important to you.

August 2018 Horoscopes

Important Dates:  Solar Eclipse on August 11, and Women’s Equality Day on the 26th.

Book Cases in Feng Shui

Many of us have large bookcases filled with hard and soft cover books that we have read many years ago or with the ones we hope to read in the future.  Have you thought about donating your “read” books to your local library or your children’s school’s library?   Once you have read a book (and sometimes you may read it twice, it becomes a dust collector and another bit of clutter.

Once your “must have” or “must keep” books are in your book case, try a little variety.  Lay some down horizontally and others in the vertical position.  This will balance the yin/yang energy in the room.  Horizontal books bring in quiet and laid-back energies (yin), while vertical books bring in active and energetic energies (yang).  Keep many of your children’s books in the horizontal position in their room or the energy may be too scattered to allow your child a good night’s sleep. You may also wish to put various colored book covers on your cherished items — these colors should be appropriate to the area of the gua in which the book case(s) are located.

If your book case is filled with old magazines, donate them to a nursing home or doctor’s office OR give them to friends who may not be able to afford a subscription to the magazines you currently order.  An easy way of de-cluttering is to throw them out as soon as you’ve read them or just cut out the articles of interest and put them in a folder so you can read them in a doctor’s office or while waiting for your car to be serviced, etc.

Nowadays many of us have a Kindle so the need for piles of books is no longer a necessity when you may carry many thousands of books in your hand.

This is just another example of decluttering your home a step at a time to find the positive opportunities and voluntary simplicity that we all long to have in our lives.  Happy Feng Shui.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Dealing with romantic partner issues seems like an excellent way to clear the path for a positive future together.  Handling limitations, responsibilities and obligations work in your best interest since you are using your intelligence (and not emotions) to talk things through and compromise in many areas.  Your friends will back you up with any decision you make. Be ready to be on the go as this seems to be a time where you are ready to leave the hum-drum past behind and are ready for new adventures and lots of fun. It would be nice to invite friends and family members to join you so you can get to know them better.  You have carefully stayed away from those who could help you in so many ways, and it seems like time to accept their helpful hints and suggestions to get you back on the right track. 

TAURUS – April 18 – May 19

You seem to be dealing with so many financial decisions. Should you spend or should you save?  Should you move or stay where you are? Do you really want to take that risk?  There seems to be so many unexpected expenditures in the near future that it would seem wise to hold off on unnecessary spending. Save, put money away for a rainy day and figure out your next move.  Arguments, disagreements and difficult decisions make you a bit angry and confused over issues with your romantic partner. Friends and family would love to help, but you seem to be too secretive now and are not sharing your feelings easily as you don’t trust too many people in your life with your emotions.  Getting others involved in your confusion will not help you make the much- needed decisions for the best of all involved.  You need to talk to someone about your concerns, perhaps even a professional to get an unbiased look at your situation and options.  

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

Travel is indicated if you are willing and financially able; if not, you can have smaller day trips to local parks or events that are free or very reasonable. You need to organize the rest of the year and figure out in which direction you should go. Expanding your business is always a good idea.  There seems to be a contradiction of purpose which forces you to swing back and forth from the work you are trying to pursue to your personal growth; you are not exactly sure how to balance these energies.  My advice is to give “your all” at work and in your personal life. Yes, we do get tired, but if you schedule theater, movies, dinners, lectures, or special event, etc., to fit into your busy life with your closest friends and family, (or a specific date night with your romantic partner), you will start to mellow out and things will become much easier for you to handle. You will look forward to this relaxing time. Be a little more tolerant of your significant other or business partners.  You seem to be uptight or annoyed about many things and you wouldn’t want to take out your frustration on those closest to you. 

CANCER –  June 21 – July 21

Your personal magnetism attracts many special people into your life which may be long term relationships of both friends and partners. Relationships improve, however, be careful not to spend too much time at work and spend quality time with those important to you. You seem to have things under control now and are planning your future with optimism and hopefulness. Your finances seem to continue to be prosperous as you may get involved in other business ventures (including part time or a home-based business) and you seem to be on the right track.  Everything you touch now turns to gold, so go for it!  You are being blessed to expand and grow in many positive directions.  Even though you may start to tackle things that seem unorthodox or unconventional, be persistent and get through the tasks without hesitation.  Procrastination will make things worse!  Many new opportunities will be given to you so if you know what you want, it will be easier to grab the opportunity once it is presented to you.  

LEO –  July 22 – August 22

You may be thinking in an exceptionally creative or innovative mode now and may be bringing that energy to your romantic life, so just enjoy. There is so much positive energy around you to help you get out, explore, move on, have fun and be in the moment, especially if there are summer time activities around you that you wish to participate in. Don’t over think things now as everything will work out for the best in a very short period of time.  Long distance travel seems favored, so why not take a long-needed vacation.  Even though there may be some delays or paper related mix-ups, it does seem to bring you the fun and relaxation you need.  It is important for you to get out of the house to have fun with your friends and to mingle with those who are in your business, charities and peer associations or groups.  You have much energy around you, but you seem to need a cosmic kick in the pants to get moving in the right direction.    

VIRGO –  August 23 – September 21

Don’t make snap decisions, but once you’ve decided on a course of action, stay with your plan.  Changes in work also seem to be imminent.  Have you decided which road or path you will take?  This seems like a good time to talk things over at work and home with those important to you so that you are clearly understood.  Your messages just do not seem to be getting through properly.  Money may be of concern now, however, you seem to be blessed and will be able to do well once you set your mind on your goals and objectives. You seem very sensitive and are confused about your romantic relationship.  You may want to try to have a meaningful communication with your romantic significant to deal with issues you may have.  Home life may seem somewhat unstable, so do whatever you can to make it secure again.  If changes are inevitable, at least you can calmly discuss things and decide what is in both of your best interest before reacting to circumstances around you without a plan. 

LIBRA –  September 22 – October 22

Much activity seems to push you into many directions that you never thought possible.  If you truly do not want to help others at this time, why are you doing it? This seems to be a good time for you to take care of yourself, your family and your desires and not think about anyone else who wants you to change. Be wary of deception in a relationship and make sure you can verify whatever he or she is telling you, so that you won’t be hurt in the future.  You are just too trusting of everyone, but you must remember that not everyone is as honest and truthful as you, so you would be best not to take everyone at their word without question.  Foreign travel, higher education or lectures and classes seem to help you grow in so many ways.  You are a sponge for information now so should use the energy around you to make the most of it.  Thinking in a confused, depressed or anxious manner will not get you the results you want or need, so use your intelligence and logic to deal with those who play on your emotions or want you to do things his or her way.  Be strong and stand up for yourself. 

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

There seems to be more money coming in to your future; however, you may have to decide what to do with it, whom to repay, or how to invest it to make it grow properly.  This is a time to chill as you have been handling much too many responsibilities lately and would just like everyone to leave you alone; however, that is not going to happen.  Why not go to a movie or sporting event with your significant other or close friend?  Make time for yourself as this will be the only thing that will help you attain your optimistic attitude once again.  Responsibilities seem to play an important role with close friends and family members.  Talk things over, discuss alternatives and then make your decisions about your next step.  Your helping attitude is a wonderful gift to others, but now it would be good for you to give the gift of fun, relaxation, and happiness to yourself. 

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

Major changes seem to be on the horizon for you in your personal, business, partnership and career areas, all pivotal areas of life.  It would be extremely important to mend fences or let things go and move on; finally, do whatever it is you feel you’ve always wanted to do.  This is risky; however, it seems as if you want a total change of your surroundings and people in your life. Some areas of change could be your job, moving from your comfortable home to a new location, seeking new partners (or if not married, finally find a marriage partner) and changing your appearance in some fashion.  Friends will help you through the rough spots and be available to chat with you about your concerns; they are ready to help you, so allow them to assist you as you have helped them so many times in the past.  This would be a great time to use your tactfulness as you may be tempted to say exactly what you mean and then you’ll be in trouble, AGAIN. 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

Work should be kept at the office (or wherever you are employed) and when you come home, that time belongs to your significant other and family.  More quality time seems necessary with those you love.  They will appreciate your effort and try to be more understanding when you once again become the workaholic they are so used to having in their lives.  Getting ahead is important to you, but if you delegate some of your work, you will find the time you need to make everyone happy.  Don’t be too tight with your money as you will have it when you need it and you may deprive someone close to you of a simple pleasure that a small amount of money could bring them.  Have fun and lighten up!  I know you have tons of hard work ahead of you, but if you bring more balance in to your home life and career, things seem to go in a much stronger direction. 

AQUARIUS –  January 19 – February 17

Thinking in new creative ways help you have a flair for redecorating your home or landscaping your property.  You want to surround yourself with peaceful and beautiful things and flowers seem to be the answer for now.  Why not try a small water fountain in your home, or if you can afford it, in your yard where you can relax and/or meditate to the peaceful sounds of the gently flowing water.  You need to reconnect to spirit or get back to a place where you feel unstressed and comfortable with your life the way it is.  Romantic complications or confusion still worry you.  You are trying to find a happy medium between balancing your life with work and family.  You also seem to want to do things on your own; however, there just isn’t enough time.  Make time for yourself. Your energy level is drained and you seem to be handling all of the worries, doubts, fears and concerns of not only yourself, but of everyone else who can grab a minute of your time.  You need some down time away from everyone else’s problems; you need time to unwind and take care of your own life and the issues that are on your mind.

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

Relationships do not seem to make any sense and you feel as if something has to change.  Your actions and deeds do not reflect what you really feel inside your heart and you seem to struggle to understand what it is that you want out of life.  It’s fun to be with family and friends at times, but you must try to figure out what would make you really happy. Finances seem to be one area of life that will be improving so keep saving for that special purchase as your money grows. A change in career or direction seems likely as if work is not what it used to be.  Don’t make rash decisions as if you do not weigh the consequences of your decisions, you may be disappointed in the results.  Emotions seem fragile at this time, so try to deal with issues on a more analytical level so that you won’t be easily hurt.

July 2018 Horoscopes

Important Dates:  Independence Day on July 4th, and Solar Eclipse on the 12th.

Closets in Feng Shui

First, de-clutter all of your closets and organize them.  Get rid of things you no longer like, need, want or wear. Anything that hasn’t fit in more than two years must go.  Give it friends, family, church or a charity.

Everything should immediately be taken off of the top shelf. Because the closet’s top shelf in Feng Shui represents your future, you want it filled with your business cards, resume (if you are seeking a job), marketing tools, money, happy photographs and a list of what you want for your future. Type/write wishes and cut into little strips of paper and place into a red envelope, so that when a particular item comes true, you can throw that slip of paper away.  When they are all gone, you can start another list and replace the old list on the top shelf.

Make the list as specific as possible.  For instance, “I would like a new job that is 10 miles closer to my home where I will get a $15 an hour raise (or whatever) and where I will get along with the staff and management in an industry that I will enjoy within the next six months.”

The middle of the closet or where you hang your clothes, represents your present.  Get rid of outdated garments or accessories…your ideas may be outdated and you will be overlooked for some important position, or opportunity that you were waiting for because of “something” that was outdated in your closet.

The bottom of the closet is the past; place items that you want to forget or no longer need in this area.  If you do not wish your past (ex-spouse/partner, ex-job, etc.) to follow you into the present, you should keep those items in large bins or tubs and seal them so they are safe from infecting your present.  Keep old wedding albums for relationships that didn’t work in this part of the closet so that negative energy does not interfere with your present relationships.

The bedroom closet is the most important closet in your home because it reflects the way your relationship is headed.  If you need a better direction, clean out that closet!!

These are just a few ways to help you arrange your life by organizing your past, present and future areas in all of your closets, thereby attracting positive energy to help you achieve the goals you need and desire.

The sun will go into Leo on July 22.

 

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

You have the energy, the intent and the vision to make your life fun and to get rid of anything that no longer is needed in your life.  You are energized and excited about doing so many interesting things and having new experiences this summer.  Doubts may fester in your mind about whether or not you have the right partner for you.  Business partnerships may change or you are looking for a more dynamic energy to bring in more business.  Even though things may get relatively confusing and mystifying at times, just keep your cool, do what needs to be done and you will be going in the most positive direction for you. 

TAURUS – April 18 – May 19

If things just don’t seem up to par, they will come by to lift your spirits or give you an encouraging word.  You are too busy and stressed and need some down time which they will insist upon.  When you find a spare moment, you should take a walk in your garden, neighborhood, a local state park or just go on a picnic to rejuvenate and relax.  Your emotional life is becoming more balanced every day and you are thinking in a much more home-like fashion. House hunting, home and yard projects or seeing your living arrangements with new eyes and new intention are very important. 

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

If you aren’t taking advantage of all the tools that are available for you on the web for free advertising, then look into them.  Set up a workshop or lecture in a local library to promote your business and get out in to the public’s eye.  Great time for artist pursuits as well. You have too many irons in the fire and need to focus on the most important issues, job or situation that brings in the most money, makes you the happiest or more satisfied with your life. Don’t think that things will move in a positive direction if you are not pro-active in achieving your goals.  Opportunities will not be knocking on your front door anytime soon. 

CANCER –  June 21 – July 21

You may be changing jobs, looking for a new apartment or home or trying to find out if the relationship you are in is the right one for you.  There may even be a chance that you will change careers!  This is a great time to travel, get further formal education or just attend some lectures, seminars, events, workshops or training programs from which you could get a further certification for perhaps this or another job.  Even though things just don’t seem to be making sense to you right now, things will start positively forming so you can change into a more positive direction. 

LEO –  July 22 – August 22

You must talk to those with whom there is an issue.  You need to straighten things out and be understood.  Do not let others make you feel badly about anything that you have done.  You are in the right.  Things just seem complicated now and a bit confusing, especially where your self-worth is concerned.  However, you will be doing a lot of thinking to sort things out and you will be very active now.  You will also be doing many of the things you’ve always wanted to do but perhaps never had the opportunity to do them.  Good luck is on your side now so start new projects that have been on the back burner for too long.  You are getting serious about so many things in life now, including a love, so you may be settling down sooner than you think. 

VIRGO –  August 23 – September 21

Home life is very important now so make sure you get back to basics and please stop being You are planning to revamp, refurbish or redesign your space. Make sure you are not worrying over nothing and communicate with others so that they know why you are angry with them.  Keeping things inside will not help anyone.  Be strong and take the bull by the horns and deal with whatever you have to and move in the right direction.  Much of this internal dialog just doesn’t gel with reality. You are blowing things way out of proportion.  Deal with facts and handle things as they come to get your list of things to do completed in an orderly fashion and in a timely manner.  

LIBRA –  September 22 – October 22

You have come to the realization that you want to go after things that make sense to you and not do what other people want you to do.  They seem to be growing up and are actually setting more boundaries and limitations so that they have more time to do what they need to do to satisfy their ambitions, their career and leisure. Business or personal partnerships seem to change, but in a good way. You are attracting much more positive partners and will also find time for yourself to share with family and friends in travel, activities, family parties and celebrations.  It’s a good time to make choices about your future and start moving in that direction. 

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

You want to be everything to everyone but be careful not to over extend yourself.  Your constant complicated routine of working, cleaning, taking care of everything, shopping, laundry, hobbies, nights with the family, cooking, etc. may become too much to handle if you don’t give yourself some down time.  Get help, organize, delegate and set up a time to visit friends or family for some much-needed relaxation.  Keeping yourself busy with artistic pursuits such as writing, singing, dancing, painting/drawing which will be beneficial to your inner child and will decrease your stress level.  You need to make your mind concentrate on something other than worries or responsibilities. 

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

Just when you think nothing else is going to change, here comes another life altering experience. However, with these changes comes good energy and new beginnings in so many areas of life. There may be some health issues that need to be looked into, but once you take the initiative and go to the doctor or health care professional, you will be relieved to find out that your issue is not as bad as you had thought or that it can be taken care of easily. Instead of doing a lot this month, you are thinking about what you can do and how to organize your life, the activities of your family as well as vacation plans. Thinking is a wonderful thing, but action is a bit better! Perhaps getting a list together to see what you must do to prioritize your life would be useful so that you will have more leisure to spend the way you want to. 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

You are hardworking and diligent, but somehow the universe is always ready to push you into something new whether or not you are ready for the change.  Home life is interesting now and seems to conflict with what you want out of life or goes against your beliefs at this time.  Dramatic instances and upheavals may seem upsetting at the time, but in the long run, it happened to help you move forward into a new direction.  This could be a direction you never thought of, but now there is guidance to go into that new direction which will bring you many positive opportunities for your future. Good luck will find you once you feel you are going in the right direction. 

AQUARIUS –  January 19 – February 17

Thinking of the past will cause you upset and never get you to where you need to go to find a new partner or sense of peace.  Finances continue to be an issue, but with diligence and careful planning, all the concerns will be easily handled.  Budgeting is an important tool to use to get your finances back on track and to take care of all the obligations that you needed to.  Dealing with a partner’s finances or getting his/her finances back on track may also be one of your responsibilities.  You would prefer never to handle another responsibility again, but they do seem to continuously find you.  

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

Keep secrets to a minimum and don’t let others talk you into doing things that you know you should not be doing.  Life may seem to be blown out of proportion but in a good way.  You may have too many friends, too much work, too many parties to go to and just too much to do for the time you have allotted.  Organization is the key to your success now.    Your emotions are calmer than they have been in some time and you are open to new experiences and new ventures, journeys and a new direction in life.

June 2018 Horoscopes

Important Dates:  Flag Day, the 14th; Father’s Day, the 17th; and Summer Solstice, June 21st.

Making Wishes

We all make wishes.  Wishes give us hope that everything will be okay in the future and that we will be happy, prosperous, gainfully employed, and find our soul-mate.  Wishes are something to look forward to.

The differences can be the size of the wish, the intent, and the time frame you’ve added.  It is also in the way we try to manifest our wishes, some with 4”, 3-day or 7-day candles which take a great deal of time to burn before you can make your wish opposed to a birthday candle which can be out in as rapidly as ten minutes! Try to make your wish as specific as possible so the universe knows what you truly want.

So, the next time you want your wishes to come true quickly, make sure you use small birthday candles.  Remember to use the appropriate colors for your wishes, such as: red for passion, pink for love, yellow for logical endeavors, green for good health and secure finances, black to get rid of confusion and negativity, purple for a higher connection to Spirit and orange to initiate change.

I hope this little tidbit of information was useful. I have a small stock of birthday candles so when I think it’s time to make a wish, I use the appropriate colored candles and just wait for the wishes to come true!   They never fail.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Plans are taking off and your life seems to be going in the proper direction.  Your career may be changing for the better so don’t let any opportunities pass you by.  The least you can do is listen to a proposal or be open to the possibility of a new job. You are also opening up to being more expressive with your emotional energy.  You want to make new friends and have more fun, so get out there and meet new people.  You want more good times, more energy, more fun, more friends, more family get-togethers, more everything.  You are tired of being tired – you want to live a stress free fun life now and move onto the next phase of your life with gratitude, purpose and resolve.

TAURUS – April 18 – May 19

Thinking things through logically before making final decisions would be a good way to keep from making mistaken choices. This is a time to get give your future plans some serious thought.  Your activity level is busy and then not.  It seems to be like you are riding an emotional roller coaster and you just can’t get off.  You want to accomplish so much, but then procrastinate.  Then you may want to go out and conquer the world, but decide you’d rather stay in and sleep.  Education seems important now, so either you are thinking about getting more formal education for your career or future, or you are nearly over with your educational pursuits and will use this expertise to get yourself a really good position within your field.  

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

Career options may be limited, but once you decide what your heart’s desire is for a job, new opportunities will come to you.  Health issues may pop up so deal with them quickly so that any concern will be minimal.  Plan your medical appointments that have been put on the back burner for way too long.  Get your “to do” list is some kind of order.  Stop adding to your list until you finish what is currently on it.  Gems must balance their intellect and emotions now and deal with issues that are confusing to them. Finances will become more stable so don’t fret about the things you can’t pay at the moment.  Try debt consolidation or budgeting.  Rethinking your path and life is instinctual now.  You may want to brush up on many of the beliefs you have or you will start to embrace other beliefs and add them to your own.  More strength and determination are coming your way so that you can handle any issues that you need to quickly and easily.

CANCER –  June 21 – July 21

Trips and vacations seem to be on your mind although it looks as if you may need your finances in good standing for upcoming purchases so be careful about spending what you don’t have.  You may have the right attitude to make things happen quickly and effectively if you don’t change your mind once you have made the decision.  Formal education, lectures, workshops, classes and books all help you develop towards your desired goal of improving yourself and/or your career status.  Religious or philosophical belief systems may be altered or changed.  Relationships seem to be going in the right direction with a lot of fire and passion; however, don’t get into a bind by fighting over petty issues.  Compromise will help you get what you want and, in the long run, help the relationship blossom into a more harmonious bond.

LEO –  July 22 – August 22

Relationships need to be looked into to see if you are with someone who supports your goals and dreams.  If not, you have a major decision to make about your future happiness. Health seems good and if you start a good diet or exercise program, you will be in the best shape you have been in for a very long time.  Great energy and emotional stability is coming your way.  It seems you know what you want and really want to go ahead and get what you feel you deserve. Finances improve although it seems that you keep spending it as soon as you make it, so budget your money and buy only what you need at this time.  If family matters seem odd or you are confused over an issue that just doesn’t make sense, just let it go.  Don’t get involved in all of the intrigues and deception.  Accept your part in the family issue, try to resolve it and then move on. 

VIRGO –  August 23 – September 21

Friends are a major issue during this time, so keep your close ones near you, but keep an eye on the ones you are not 100% positive of as well.  Changes are on the horizon in so many areas.  You need to focus on what you want and clarify the energy or opportunities you wish to bring into your life.  Siblings will be helpful in guiding you in the right direction.  Although you just are not ready to trust others with some of your decision- making abilities, asking for assistance or opinions will be a positive step forward to trusting others.  Partnerships go well if you are comfortable in them; otherwise, you may start thinking of finding someone new and more in line with your soul’s purpose. 

LIBRA –  September 22 – October 22

If you want more self -cultivation or alone time, this time will assist you in getting what you need to survive and be happy.  It is a time for reflection, meditation, studying esoteric teachings and communing with nature.  It is a time to get back in touch with yourself.  Deal with what isn’t working and continue with the positive energy that is around you.  Hospital visits or tests seem possible, but health in general looks good.  Be aware that someone is trying to spend or use your money possibly without your knowledge.  Keep a handle on your finances so they can blossom and grow. 

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

You may feel uneasy about things going on in your life and you want to change everything now!  Take time to make your decisions as once you make them, it may be hard to change them if they haven’t turned out the way you wished.  Family issues seem to improve, but you may still have an issue or two with a sibling that needs to be resolved.  Home life in general is creative, stimulating, fun and holds a lot of bizarre energy bouncing back and forth throughout your home with affects your moods.  Disagreements with love and business partners may cause you to question why you have stayed on for so long, but all in all you will succeed in all that you do once you decide what those things are. 

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

Money is coming in and you are doing better with your financial objectives and goals. Paying obligations and responsibilities on time gives you the urge to spend more but try to resist.  So much of your life is expanding.  Things in your life are turning around, you have good luck with your personal health and within the health industry (if you need tests or procedures) and you are becoming more centered and stable as you try not to let things bother you all of the time.  Don’t get confused with going back and forth on many issues.  Once you have made a decision, it would be in your best interest to stay with that decision.  Positive changes are on the horizon in love and close personal friendships. 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

Be sure that you are really satisfied with your romantic partner.  You don’t want to be someone who does not have your same background, beliefs or integrity.  Many changes will push you in the right direction so don’t be afraid of the unknown.  Love life changes in some way.  If you were worried about breaking up, maybe this is the push you need to get out of this relationship.  If you are not in a relationship, then it would make partnership energy available to you.  You have the potential for meeting your true twin flame that will mean the world to you and your future.  Partnerships, in general, are interesting, loving and truly on an intellectual basis for now.  You may learn a lot about whatever it is you need to know.

AQUARIUS –  January 19 – February 17

Cleaning out the basement, garage and possibly the attic as well will help you get in the mood to move forward in many other areas of life.  It is a very good time for you to forget the past and move onto the future with hope in your heart.  Big changes occur in love life which would bring in someone into your life who is on your same path and falls within the parameters of what you feel an equal partner should be.  Friends and family can help you decide on your future, but the real issue is for you to make the decisions that may change your life forever.  Be sensitive to the needs of others, but do not fall back into the trap where all of your energy is outgoing and where you get nothing in return. 

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

Ask questions to things that are bothering you and make sure you are satisfied with the answers. With time, things will be made clear.  Your emotional and logical self are in a championship fight with each other, but who will win?  You are also in a much better frame of mind and have many projects you wish to complete.  There is energy around you, good health, luck and a stimulating mind that will keep many on your friendships intact.  You have good friends who are loyal and trustworthy.  Don’t be afraid to ask them for assistance, opinions or advice.  Home life is stimulated with friends, neighbors and family so make the most of this fun time around you.  You need to reconnect with those that were special to you and know that sometimes things end for a reason.  The reason is to allow you the room to start in a brand-new direction.
