Astrology – December 01-07, 2010

December 1-7, 2010 Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Certain male lizards claim piles of rock as their territories—the most dominant lizards have the biggest best mounds of precious, heat-soaking stone. They also have the most females—but these aren’t drawn to their dominant behavior, striking physiques, or winning personalities so much as their primo real estate. Give […]

Sign Language Astrology 11/03/10

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Being in business with someone you don’t think is on the up and up is never fun. However, we frequently end up in situations where we must interact with people we know don’t have our best interests in mind, like banks, insurance companies, and the like. Financially, it’s very difficult to […]

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) When you were younger, you played games to test your own strength, much like the way baby animals playfully enact versions of the activities they’ll require for survival and success later in life, like hunting, chasing, and fighting. At some point, though, part of becoming a mature, compassionate and conscious Scorpio […]

Sign Language Astrology 10/20/10

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) The news today had a story about seven major cities that are in imminent danger of sinking, including Bangkok, New Orleans and New York.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Sure, you could bake a traditional apple pie, but these particular guests would probably be more excited if, when they cut into that innocuous crust, they discovered bacon and pecans, or avocado and kiwi—something surprising and just as delicious, if not more so. Thinking outside the box isn’t your specialty, I […]

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Some things don’t respond well to extra pressure, like sleep. Sometimes the more urgent it is that you get some rest, the less likely it’ll actually happen. You end up watching the clock all night, desperately tired, thinking, “Ugh, I have to get up in five hours…. Four hours…three hours!” Of […]

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Imagine scientists invented a cheap way to lock humans into the age of their choice, but once you picked how old you wanted to be, it was irreversible. While most of us would probably be more or less happy with our new ages, some people would regret their decisions, wish they’d […]

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) We’re taught the old cliché, “if at first you don’t succeed, try and try again.” It’s actually not a bad philosophy, most of the time; few truly valuable goals can be achieved without persistence and determination. However, sometimes it’s preferable to realize that you won’t be able to accomplish something and […]

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) It’s funny when little kids think they’re getting away with something, because they have no subtlety or craftiness whatsoever. Everything they’re up to is completely obvious to any adult observer. In some ways, you Virgos never outgrow this. Although of course you’ve developed more social skills and can lie effectively when […]

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Fighting is an art form. I’m not talking about fencing or Sumo wrestling, but rather simply the ability to conclusively resolve conflicts in a graceful way. This isn’t something that comes naturally to you Virgos. Although you’re not as likely to run from disagreeements as, say, a gentle Pisces, you still […]
