Taurus The Bull: (April 20 - May 19)

This is not an easy week for the Bulls. Temptations are all around you and threaten to pull you back from good decisions that you have already made. This is weakness territory. Don't put yourself in circumstances that make it more difficult to stay with your chosen path.

For All Signs: World events are challenging during these months. Most of us are deeply concerned about the economy, and the welfare of this country, along with the world at large. The general unrest and worry is "written in the stars." Even so, there is a warm light in the window of the starry night. It is in the sign of Aquarius, out of the fray, and offers comfort from anxiety. We can each make a choice to give more attention to the good than to insanity.

Aries: Your attention shifts to matters concerning children, play, romance and recreation for the next few weeks. You will likely be the one to initiate activities on these fronts. If you want to initiate a new start in the world of romance, the time frame to take a step forward is May-June.

Gemini: You have a desire to celebrate. The temptation to overspend is strong. Consider what would be fun and interesting that doesn't require a big outlay of cash. Activities concerning education, publishing, the law, and travel have positive aspects. You are talkative and in an exploring frame of mind.

Cancer: Mars, planet of initiative and "war," is departing your sign this week. Your driving energy will go with it and you may breathe a sigh of relief. Meanwhile someone or an issue from the past may re-enter your consciousness. Beware that the situation may tempt you to spend money or go overboard and then regret it.

Leo: Energies concerning career are positive. Whatever you are doing in that arena is in the flow of things. Others will cooperate and support your objectives. Stay conscious in the department of partnership and significant others. You might trip someone's trigger and create an unpleasant experience.

Virgo: Over the next six weeks life will work more smoothly if you let yourself be led by the "signs," circumstances, and people around you. It is not a time to attack in anger or initiate new ideas, but to respond to what comes your way. Pay heed to episodes of hesitation and stop long enough to think more carefully.

Libra: You will be tempted to create more debt or to make promises that you cannot fulfill because you want to keep the peace. Feelings of guilt may be draining your energy. If you can do something about it, then do it. If you cannot, move on and learn from the error.

Scorpio: During the months of May and June your attention will be drawn to career and life direction. Activity in the outer world picks up speed. Authorities and others may be challenging, so have your ducks in a row if you take initiatives. Use this time to improve your "product" or your presentation.

Sagittarius: Your mood is expansive and optimistic this week. It is one of those "good luck" times that occasionally happen to the Archers. You have a grasp of the big picture and could use this energy to promote your projects and gain support. Or ... you could simply kick back and enjoy the good feelings.

Capricorn: Between now and the end of June old issues may surface in any relationship. This time frame is an exercise in truth telling and open discussions of what you know. If you sense that someone, whether you or the other, is not forthright, do your best to create an environment of trust.

Aquarius: Give attention to the lead paragraph. It is highly probable that you are thinking about the spiritual, in whatever way you perceive it, during this period. You are likely pondering what you can do in today's world to help create a better environment. The humanitarian in you is being "called."

Pisces: Beware the temptation to feel sorry for yourself this week. If you want attention, then ask for it. Don't make the mistake of sulking because someone cannot read your mind. Your imagination is vivid and may be dark right now. Recognize that the scenario playing in your head is probably not the accurate truth.

  • 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)
