Planet Power: Nov. 21 - 27, 2013

Happy Thanksgiving. Let’s be nice to each other and cultivate warm thoughts. You are what you think…
—MOJOPOPlanetPower.com

i SAGITTARIUS (11.21-12.20) Welcome into the sign of the prophet, prophecy and all tall tales; wild and divine. Tell/write me what’s on your mind, and why it’s so hard to find. It’ll be a short story, right? Gotcha! Sagittarius also rules humor, wit and composition. You LOVE telling ($elling?) stories — and if you tell ’em well enough (to $ell ’em) and long enough, they’ll sometimes seem true for/to you, too. Ask O.J. Simpson. Your ruler, Jupiter — which also rules freedom — is retrograding conjunct O.J.’s Sun. Maybe he’ll be sprung by next spring, when Jupiter moves direct… Sometimes what you make up can happen. It’s called prophecy if it works, compo$ition/entertainment if it $ells, and humor if it doesn’t. Ask Sagittarian Mark Twain.

j CAPRICORN (12.21-1.18) Admit it! (If not to me, at least to yourself.) You’ve never been sooooo horny! (Yes, I’ve been thinkin’ ’bout’cha too.) You’ve got another HOT(!) 2 months to g(l)o(w) through, and then we enter the sign of the unexpected! Making love is either an athletic event (like here in the Midwest…“Go BIG RED”!) or an opportunity to be at one and touch the cosmos. Take your pick. There must be another way to show your love for a woman…and when I figure it out, I’ll text ya!

k AQUARIUS (1.19-2.17) Do they get the “READER” at the asylum? Just checking… (Carrie Olsen, make a note.) You’ve got ’til mid-December, when your ruler, the planet Uranus… (Yes, I know that’s a BIG joke at “the home,” just as it was when I was visiting. What got me, though, was that since nobody was wearing any uniforms, you had to watch carefully to see who left at 5:00 p.m. and who stayed on.) Oh, well…cigarette break!

l PISCES (2.18-3.19) Ahhhh…the know-it-alls of the zodiac — the sign of universal consciousness! “My god’s BIGGER than yooouuur god!” Can I get an “amen”? I’d suggest that you read Sagittarius, et al., but then any know-it-all worthy of their inherent superiority complex would do that anyway; with an eye (of course) to hunting for and ferreting out any “mistakes” to test and prove their editorial acumen. How does this lowly MOJO know… You can lead a Pisces to water, but you can’t make ’em think… 

a ARIES (3.20-4.18)  Work on it for these next 2 weeks, ’til Mars moves on past Virgo into Libra the zebra — where it’s all black or white, day or night, and wrong or right. And then, look at yourself from another’s (lover’s?) point of view; from across the pew, the room, the office, the people you meet and greet on the street, your hometown and/or your favorite bar, to/and find out who and what you are.

b TAURUS (4.19-5.19) Last week (on the 15th at 3:30 p.m., Omax time) your economic status regenerated/improved, as your ruler Venus conjuncted Pluto (which means “the rich one”) in pragmatic, economically-oriented Capricorn. Perhaps a “good-looking” Capricorn/Scorpio has solved all your economic woe — but how far will it go? How does/will the MOJO know that Chri$tma$ i$ due/going to throw you a curve or two? It’ll take ’til February to straighten it out and give you a chance to batter up romance. Take a swing and hit the ball by the preseason, the 1st week in March.

c GEMINI (5.20-6.19) Two more little weeks (of Mercury in Scorpio ’til December 5th) to study the mysteries of life and death, sex and regeneration…and then off you go (with the one you love? Who were you thinking of?) on your next little “vacation,” as your ruler Mercury moves into your opposite sign ’til Christmas Day and you discover the price you have to pay for your lover’s “gifts,” and how they make you have to say/play at being someone else — so’s you can’t really be yourself. As I tell my children, they’re all trouble, but some of them are worth it.

d CANCER (6.20-7.21) If food is your answer — and it is — then this is your week! Let’s see how much you/we can eat… Maybe it’s not food you/we truly seek? We’ll know when next we speak. It’s not really the food. It’s not even about nourishment or energy. It’s excitement! It’s what turns you on in the loooong run. Trust me. I had bulimia before they had a name for it, to go along with my bleeding ulcer at 6. What we are/were seeking is/was security, and the only security that lasts is spiritual security… 

e LEO (7.22-8.21) Kings: Sunday’s Full Moon square signals a/your day off. Your reputation is in the process of suffering, and there’s really nothing you can do about it ’til the bearer of the bad news and the teller of tales bails and starts to lobby for a new hobby. I’d suggest that you gobble all day and meditate as you vegetate before the (TV) “Church of the NFL,” and let all “them dirty, rotten liars” rot in hell. Queens: Cook for the schnook and pretend you’re interested. 

f VIRGO (8.22-9.21) Please read Gemini. It’ll all be true for you, too. In addition (just for you!), the Moon moves into Virgo at dawn on Moonday. But your REAL day is Tuesday! There are glorious aspects to the Moon in Virgo ’til dawn on Wednesday! Use ’em before you lose ’em!

g LIBRA (9.22-10.21) Please read Taurus. With you, it’$ working out a$ involving (expense$ regarding?) your home center — your 4th Hou$e.

h SCORPIO (10.22-11.20) Nobody cares about life and/or death anymore, or what you feel to be real, or the depth of your ocean of emotion, or the (im)possibilities of your — or their — emotion/devotion, or the love of enchantment and/or the mysteries and/or the lessons/morals of their/our histories. When the days shortened 2 Moons ago, we humans are/were left with the analogy/meditation/metaphor that our days are also shortening. To compensate, we artificially engender good vibes and will from the holiday season; from Thanksgiving through Christmas, which marks the return of the “Son”/Sun, and is the realm/month/transit of “opti-mystic” Sagittarius. Let’s party ’til the Taureans come home!
