Here comes/goes Mercury retrograde until Dec. 30. Simply put, anything started after Dec. 30 has a better chance of succeeding than anything initiated before. Communication is a key to joint human endeavors and during such times as these clear, succinct communication often appears questionable or lacking. Vacation until 2011 to better enjoy your upcoming New Year. Tell them it’s your Astrologer’s advice. There are no mistakes. Peace & Love Shall Conquer All. — SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.21) Hold yer horses, Pardner. You’ve got a month and a half until you (should) make your move. Sit back and see yer pardners are playin’ you? They think you’re dreamin’ (and you are). Find out who’s really playin’ on yer side. Remember, after 50 you’ve only got time for the people on yer side. It’s never too early to tighten up, that’s what the first 49 are for. You’ll know everything after these next six moons, by next June 15’s total lunar eclipse in yer sign, Pardner. CAPRICORN (12.22-1.20) Hold on, hold up, hold over, hold ’em. You don’t have to play. You don’t have to answer the phone. They want the real you anyway and you’re just not there. The deck is being shuffled and you’ll be dealt some great cards Jan. 19-24. There are some BIG HANDS out there looking for a home? Please, take the next three weeks off to meditate before the same three weeks fake you out. Trust me. Wait for the WINNERS. AQUARIUS (1.21-2.19) You’ll have to wait until Spring to hear the robins sing. Until then meditate. The Straight will use lessons of music, harmony and diplomacy to relate. The Wild will sponsor their fantastic, imaginative invention with unusual/usual intention. What and how BIG can you dream? Yours is the sign of making dreams into being. Prove it this coming Spring. First you must dream. PISCES (2.20-3.20) You have until April before you enter your own dreamworld of oblivion, your Ocean of Emotion, your dance of transcendence. Like Shiva and Kali you’ll find two roads to oblivion and they both end up at the same place where time (Saturn) means nothing and space (Jupiter) is just a memory of what used to be. See me, hear me, feel me, be me — whoever that happens, this short lifetime, to be. GOD is a verb. ARIES (3.21-4.20) Moonday, Dec. 13 goes BOOM in the afternoon! First the Moon conjuncts the unusual, eccentric and bizarre planet Uranus, then retrograde Mercury conjuncts Pluto, then Mercury conjuncts Mars followed by Mars conjunct Pluto. There’s got to be a Scorpio in the woodpile? It’s business (Capricorn), BIG busine$$ (Pluto) in the future (mid January). Make sure it’s for the “good of the people” as your ruler Mars, pulls into the sign of altruism (Aquarius) from then until the end of February. TAURUS (4.21-5.20) Your new philosophy is set for rebirth the first week in January. Can you admit (at least to yourself) who you really are? You must love yourself first, but not too much? But how can you love yourself too much if love is eternal and limitless? Confused? Maybe there are several types of love? And what, may I ask, supersedes love? Read the last word of this article below. A Scorpio or a review from some sexxxy ex-ie removes the hexie that affects thee! POOF! You’re cured. The spell is broken. The MOJO has spoken … GEMINI (5.21-6.21) It’s your turn to walk us through this coming confusion. Take a toehold on some old gold for an economic infusion. Bought and/or sold, the key will be a regenerating Scorpion for thee, and the ho$t $hould prove to be a timeworn Capricorn? Do your homework and trust no one, not even yourself. Mistakes abound! The Fool Killer’s coming … CANCER (6.22-7.22) June Cancers search for answers. Let the world spin on its own for a spin or two. Time to talk across the table with the BIG MONEY, if you’re able. (Your ideas, their cake? If you don’t ask … ?) Who comes to mind? Give it a month to mature (key word) and quit complaining all the time. How does the MOJO know, Joe? LEO (7.23-8.22) Thirteen years ago you experienced some unusual opposition? Maybe psychological? Maybe your Dad? An Aquarius or somehow strange person entered your world in or around February 1997? Hey, that’s right after I joined The Reader , and there’s no one StarrrrrRRRRanger than me? You’re in your element, but Mercury is retrograde conjunct Pluto, Mars and the North Node in early Capricorn exciting your theoretical 6th House of work and health. Give it three weeks in those areas then make your move. VIRGO (8.23-9.22) Please read Gemini. You’ll remember who you are in a week. No, I mean who you REALLY are, beyond this lifetime. When you read Planet Power next week you’ll know of what I speak. We have all been here (or someplace like it?) before. Your turn to remember. You’ll have a while to sort through the images. I’ll coax you back, Kimosabe. Maybe that was before your time? LIBRA (9.23-10.22) Please read Taurus, of “chorus.” They’re the lips and you’re the hips. They provide the vocal melody and your dance-motivated rhythm defines the possibility of harmony. We’re transiting Sagittarius, the sign of the Composer. Time to start some new art from the heart? “Let Venus Come Between Us.” That’s my song for Libra on ZODIAC. Now, I showed you mine … SCORPIO (10.23-11.22) So sad you didn’t make it to the printed page last week. Were you scared? Loyal fans who checked the website were able to align their fears through the efforts of Planet Power ’s lovely dear Web Mistress, Star. Also through her efforts, we can more fully inform the Astrologically curious with 20,000 or so tidbits of Cosmic Debris for the year ahead, expanded beyond The Reader ’s format. We’ll have it for you (Inshallah) in the Jan. 6 issue. Until then let’s strive for COMPLETION.
