July 13 -- July 19, 2005

The Crab (June 21 -- July 21)

Because you are moon ruled, the image of woman issue described in the lead paragraph will play a prominent role now. Overall, this is a dramatic week of highs and lows. Give attention to what your mind is doing. Concentrated thoughts can become manifest in our lives.

For All Signs There are two main planetary symbols of the feminine, the Moon and Venus. The Moon represents woman as a mother, or caretaker. Venus is the symbol of the woman as a sensual being. This week neither of these symbols are in a happy position, suggesting turmoil about our inner and outer understanding of the feminine. In the western culture we have severed the two images so drastically that women are more or less forced to choose one of the two models to follow. The planet earth is mother as caretaker to the globe, so it is possible there will be newsworthy discussion of environmental issues.

Aries This is a time in which you feel strong and confidant. Look at the big picture of your life and decide if you need to make changes. It is also a favorable time to be working toward social change in the world around you. Love, romance, travel and education have positive aspects.

Taurus Old anger may surface now within an intimate relationship. Issues of sharing, intimacy and/or sex serve as triggers. One of you may feel misused and will express it through veiled hostility. Discuss the issue in an established relationship. Run for your life if this is someone new.

Gemini This is a week of contrasts. Your love life has an intensity with a hint of compulsion and your ability to evaluate a new relationship may be skewed. Suppressed anger could express itself in dark ways. Put the issue on the table find a way to talk gently through it.

Leo The month prior to one's birthday is a relatively sober time. Some may be mildly to moderately fatigued. The libidinal energy is lower during this month and it is harder to maintain a positive attitude. Mars is on your side this week and offers solace through a lover or a child.

Virgo Energies continue to suggest that your plans are changing over and over. Sometimes it is for reasons that are favorable, i.e., an unexpected encounter with an old friend or acquaintance. This is a good week to make short-term plans with partners, whether business or personal.

Libra You are up for a good time this week. You are no doubt spending money and loving it. But, you must be careful of what you say and how you say it. Sometimes the Libran gets overexcited and forgets to use tact. When you blurt out commentary without thinking, others always notice.

Scorpio Issues of intimacy and sharing are prominent this week. This could be within a close relationship or one that is loosely bound, such as that with a corporation. It appears you have something to gain, but the price exacted may be more than you wish to pay. Watch for costs which may be subtle.

Sagittarius You are feeling strong physically and emotionally. This enhances your natural charisma into something almost magical. Be aware that you are particularly vulnerable to those who flatter you now. Avoid the temptation to generate relationship strictly for the sake of your ego.

Capricorn This is a period when it seems that social connections and contracts just don't work out as you hoped or expected. It could be that at the deepest level, you really aren't quite ready for those connections to occur. Perhaps you are conflicted and haven't yet acknowledged it.

Aquarius You and a personal or corporate partner may be unable to complete an agreement. It appears that you are on the losing side of this conflict. Make an effort to keep the discussion respectful and on the table. It is possible one of you will have a bright idea that brings resolution.

Pisces The week is split into two moods. Through the weekend fun, play and perhaps travel are suggested. Then you return to the hard reality of the regular workday world. The difficulties you encounter on re-entry should teach you something about how you organize your life. Are changes needed?

  • On Saturday, Oct. 21, hundreds gathered at Camp North End on Statesville Avenue for Charlotte's first black alternative music festival. We captured some of the bands in action on stage, but mostly we surveyed the grounds as fans, families, vendors and more lounged around the sprawling, colorful Camp North End site. It was a great day of music, food, fun, and sweet, autumn sunshine. (Photos by Mark Kemp)
