Welcome to the summer season, initiated by the sign of the universal mother, Cancer the Crab. Cancers are of the most sensitive of signs. The key phrase for the sign is “I hold onto.” That’s what the BIG CLAWS are for. Grudges, money, (in)security, a love that’s already met its quota and should’a been gone a long time ago. How does the MOJO know?

CANCER (6.22-7.22)  Please read the intro for any clues. You’re at least a week away. Early next Friday morning, on July 1st, is the New Moon/Solar Eclipse in your sign. ’Til then, it’s time to clean up the pad! After that, it’s your house, it’s clean and it’s your turn to take over the scene. Lights! Cameras! Action! Photos help the good times last for and from the past. The two merge, as we have to remember, all the way to and from September. You(’ll) know what I mean…


LEO (7.23-8.22)  Time to hide within your pride. You’ve got a month, a week and a day before things start to go your way. You’re in the perfect situation to mess up and become your own worst enemy — once again! If I was you and you were me, and we both were free, I’d take a vacation without a destination. Send a postcard to your mom.


VIRGO (8.23-9.22)  Speaking of (Virgo) moms; I mentioned last week that this week we’d speak of my conversations from the “other side” with my mom. I held her ashes for the first time during Scorpio, in front of my favorite pomegranate tree, as she said to me, “You are guided, my son.” And then she said to me, “When death is nothing, nothing is nothing. Finally, we are free.”


LIBRA (9.23-10.22)  You’ve got 2 lovers. Don’t show this to your significant others, and then they’ll know for sure that you’ve been steppin’ in manure. Time for you to learn; not from what you know, but from what you don’t know… Ask a Scorpio. Here comes one now…


SCORPIO (10.23-11.22)  Ahhhhh… You’re back in your element; hot, humid funk. Don’t get too crabby with us, though. Both Martian and Plutonian Scorpios have oppositions screwing and brewing. Time to take a break. Some Sun, some water, a little break for/from/with Neptune’s daughter. That’s your Dr. MOJO’s orders. Rx VP. How esoteric…


SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.21)  Starting now, you’re going to initiate a financial/economic plan to get you through July and August. Then, you’ll find out you’re right back where you started from (right here!) and recapitulate ’til Christmas. Time for you to deck the halls and avoid the Christmas rush?


CAPRICORN (12.22-1.20)  Momentum and music. Balance and love. The eagle and the dove. You give love — you get love. You don’t, you won’t. Your odds are 50/50. Your shake-up, shape-up or ship out day is next Tuesday, the 28th, as the Sun opposes Pluto in your sign. Regenerate or die and hide on the 30th. Your partners have all the power. Be wise and use love as your secret weapon/tool.


AQUARIUS (1.21-2.19)  Nobody cares for awhile, as you try on your new persona. Friends change, come and go, and you’re left to run the whole show. Face it. That’s what a rebirth entails. I can hear you now; “What about the rebirth entrails?” Always there for the shock value. Perhaps a career in TV? Who knows? Study your face in the mirror and see what you’re becoming, clearer; then see what you can be…


PISCES (2.20-3.20)  How about a/the new dream? Were you hiding behind a/your dream? Clever camouflage of the night. Things aren’t quite right and what they used to seem…if you know what I mean? You will, if you ride the tides ’til September’s Ides. I smell seafood on Friday night, the 1st, with some fine wine to slake your thirst.


ARIES (3.21-4.20)  Dinner at home. No need to roam. But why the longing to be/feel free? (Mars in Gemini, maybe?) My guess is that you’ll know more or less during the first week of August. There are 2 choices, Kwai Chang: the good and the pleasant. Da da daaah, di da da da da aa aa. Da daaah dah da da a a, Da da da ahhhhhh…


TAURUS (4.21-5.20)  Two voices. Two choices, ’til the 4th of July! That’s why! It’s your weekend ’til Tuesday in the a.m.! Have fun!


GEMINI (5.21-6.21)  Please read Aries. There’s a cooking, culinary idea out there with your name on it, looking for you and trying to make you rich. See you on TV?
