Thursday’s a beautiful day to start something. On Friday, make it real. On Saturday, make it BIG. Venus enters Virgo on Sunday, at dinner. Moonday could go either way (Moon in Gemini), followed by confusion at dinner (the Sun opposite retrograde Neptune in Pisces — don’t order the fish!). It’s the last week of Leo, ’til dawn on August 23rd. Mercury moves direct in mid-Leo on Friday the 26th, at dinner. What a difference a week can/will make. Wait! There are no mistakes. Peace and love shall conquer all.


e LEO (7.23-8.22)  You’re lookin’ good(!) for one more minute. Time to reflect upon your love (of) life, and how much longer you can spend money you ain’t got on stuff you don’t need. Mercury’s retrograde in your sign, affecting August-born Leos. (Are there any other kind?) Say goodbye to Venus on Sunday the 21st, and turn your resultant art into money that you need for stuff you ain’t got. Round and round…

f VIRGO (8.23-9.22)  Who’s looking through your past? The I.R.S., your parents, your boss, your current lover’s ex? What came to mind? What will they find? Remember, it’s true that you can’t change the past, but you can “reinterpret” it. Cleanse your subconscious and it becomes a matrix for art, creativity and their guiding light, love. Listen to/as Venus beckons on August 22nd.

g LIBRA (9.23-10.22)  One more weekend in the spotlight, and then it’s down and dirty and back to business! Your ruler Venus moves into your 12th theoretical House of Virgo. Somebody’s going to find fault with your “lack of detail.” Find it now and fix it, or fix up a real cute excuse — your usual dodge?

h SCORPIO (10.23-11.22)  Your mom (or even her memory) gives you energy. Your relationship with your mother is your relationship with the universe. Have you yet learned to thank and love your universe for all these seemingly infinite possibilities? You give love — you get love. You don’t, you won’t. Guess how the MOJO knows that? The first time I held my mother’s ashes under the pomegranate tree, she said to me, “You are guided, my son.” And then she added, “When death is nothing, nothing is nothing. Finally, we are free.” Thank you, Mom.

i SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.21)  Wake up, stay up ’til midnight and face the East. Make a/your wish as bright, blue Jupiter rises in the sign of Taurus. When a planet twinkles at/for you, it’s “talking.” Listen and put what you learn (in the/an unspoken language of light frequencies) into a/the quest for a/your dream house, job or love relationship.

j CAPRICORN (12.22-1.20)  Status quo; that’s all you know. Halfway home, Jerome. I’m tellin’ you truly, Julie. Balance is/will be the key. Play some music or sing a song for me. Show me what you know/learnt and need to learn of harmony. Now, show everyone you see. Let them sing their song, and then you sing along.

k AQUARIUS (1.21-2.19)  You move back to the beginning in December. Remember now what you’ll know then, and maybe then you(’ll) win. Redo what you started to in mid-March and you can insist on a merry Christmas kiss. Class dismissed.

l PISCES (2.20-3.20)  Things are not as they seem to thee. You’re as in a dream, or seem to be. True, that’s always true with/for you. What you gonna do in 2022? Who you gonna be in 2023? That’s what your dream will be ’til Hallow Weenie…

a ARIES (3.21-4.20)  You’re halfway through your mom, your house, your depression, your recession, your guessin’ and your lesson. You’ll be done a month from now. Good time to hide out in the pad. Mars is in Cancer. Try not to eat yourself out of house and home. How does the MOJO “gnome”? (Anything for a rhyme, anytime.)

b TAURUS (4.21-5.20)   One more half-week in the pink. Then it starts to stink. Venus moves into Virgo on Sunday at dinnertime, followed by the Sun on the 23rd. The word is that manure makes good fertilizer. Time to get down and dirty. Pay attention to detail, or you fail. Good luck! Things are not as they seem…

c GEMINI (5.21-6.21)  Your reputation is at stake. Good time to prepare for some classes? Things are not as they would seem to be to thee…I mean, even less than per (un)usual. You(’ll) meet and talk to a Leo. Don’t tell ’em I said so, but they’re full of jive. That’s the buzzzzz around the beehive.

d CANCER (6.22-7.22)  Start Thursday. Put it into fertile ground on Friday. Wake up early on Saturday with a sparkling, brilliant idea and discuss it on Sunday, at dinner. You could score HEAVY via a sexxxy (are there any other kind?) Scorpio or a well-funded, loaded Capricorn, after an “unusual” lunch culminating around 13 ’til 3:00, from what I see. You’re the “house” — they’re the “entertainment.”
