Stargazer 

For week of November 1-7, 2001

For All Signs I have written about the opposition of Saturn and Pluto in our zodiac in recent months. This is the symbol of forced change which began in late May, became exact in August, is now exact a second time and has one more pass in May. Tension between these two planets has been prominent at some dramatic moments in our history: at the onset of WWI, early in the Great Depression, near the onset of WWII, and during the escalation of the Vietnam war. It has also been prominent during other periods in which war was a major feature in the news, but the US was not directly involved. The polarity between Saturn and Pluto seems also to correspond with periods of major stress in the world economy. We cannot predict "war" simply because this aspect is present in the sky and also in the human psyche. But it does seem to represent tension of an extreme degree. See more on this subject next week.

Aries You are in an unusually idealistic frame of mind and may be prone to take risks based upon your beliefs. Sometimes this type of thinking can create a pot of gold. Even so, do consider the facts at hand. If your personal intuition says, "Go," then do it. But now is not the time to follow the dream of another.

Taurus The misfortunes of others may result in small benefits for you at this time. Your willingness to work and your problem solving ideas are met with appreciation right now. Though you are concerned about your financial picture, much of it is beyond your control at this time. Pay off bills and reduce debt if possible.

Gemini You are troubled and your health may be affected. It is all too easy to find fault in this frame of mind, but it may be best at this point to keep your thoughts to yourself. Try journaling, or talk things over with a trusted friend in order to deal with your feelings. It is likely that things look darker than they really are. Allow some time to pass before you take action.

Cancer You can see the handwriting on the wall. Your means of making a living is pressured for change during this period. This is a very good time to look deeply within yourself and consult your spirit about the direction that this change should take. Fortuitous encounters are likely during the week. Make note of new contacts, whether personal or business.

Leo You may be preoccupied with concern over aging family members, or those in poor health. There is little you can do about these things, except offer your support and encouragement. Stay in touch with your spiritual self. Your "guardian angel" is in control at this time.

Virgo Issues concerning family members and/or property are arriving at crucial points of decision. Aging persons or material objects are breaking down and in need of repair. You may not be any too happy with your work situation either. These are trying times and they will continue for a few months, but they will not go on forever. Every issue does not have to be solved at once. Pace yourself.

Libra This is a week of communications deluxe, from email to telephone calls, to contracts and agreements. News from a distance, concerning educational interests, travel, legal concerns, and/or siblings may bring cause for concern. You may be asked to work for little or no pay in order to promote a good cause. Do it. The "pay" will come later.

Scorpio Your financial picture is tight and there is no getting around it right now. That is uncomfortable enough, but the inner critic may be making things worse for you with its criticism of yourself or others for this situation. Obsessing wastes valuable energy that is better utilized to solve problems. Don't point fingers in any direction.

Sagittarius A significant relationship is at a point of crisis during this period. The issue is power. Who has it and who does not? You may choose to let the relationship go, but if you want to keep it, then a change in perspective and approach is required. Communications are in danger of breaking down this week. Maybe it is better to play cool and easy until the storm is over.

Capricorn This is a troubled period for you, without a doubt. Business is slow and you may be dealing with health problems as well. The global economy is out of your control, of course. But it could be possible to improve your income by making minor changes in your contacts or your presentation of your product. This will last a few months, but it won't be forever.

Aquarius There are people and things in your life that you have been maintaining, basically alone, for quite sometime now. At this point you are presented with yet one more challenge. It is time to consider whether you have slid into codependence. Perhaps you would be better off if you set up some self-protective boundaries. This may preserve relationships without the massive cost to your energy.

Pisces Tension that you have been carrying just below the surface of your awareness may erupt suddenly this week. Those with addictive tendencies should be aware of the temptation to escape from consciousness during this period. Instead of submerging that adrenaline, put it to work and tackle a project. Take special care of health now. Allergies may be a temporary plague.

  • 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)
