Stargazer 

For week of January 31-February 6, 2002

For All Signs We continue with the strong Aquarian theme symbolized in our skies at this time. Aquarius, the Waterbearer, is a sign of humanitarian idealism and fair treatment for everyone. The position of planets in the solar system at any given time is the source of information for an astrologer's sign forecasts. It is also true that the zodiacal arrangement on any given day becomes the natal horoscope for anyone who is born. Children born in February before the 18th, and particularly those born before the 11th, have a lengthy chain of planets in Aquarius. The humanitarian drive will likely be imprinted in their lifelong psychological design.

Aries Mars, your ruling planet, continues to travel in your sign through February. Mars is the ancient god of war. "He" represents the part of us that knows what we want and pursues the desired objective. "He" is not willing to back down from a skirmish and can give us the will to speak about what is on our minds. This energy often gives us the desire to tackle projects that require physical strength.

Taurus Aspects favor career, social life and romance at this time. There may be good news concerning partner's resources, job benefits, insurance payoffs, or other resources from public coffers. Career life and reputation is given a small boost and offers encouragement. You likely will be discussing what is on your mind more than usual at this time, and you can be very persuasive.

Gemini Give attention to word choice and tone of voice in relationships. Significant others may be more sensitive than usual right now and misunderstandings could develop. While Mercury is retrograding, the theme of "going back" continues to be prominent. You may be reworking projects and situations you thought were finished a long time ago.

Cancer You have a stronger than usual desire to reach out and connect with others on an intimate level at this time. Your frame of mind is generous, open, and giving. This is a good time to request favors if you need them, and to grant them to others in return. Leave the credit cards at home if you need to save money. You may be a tad impulsive this week.

Leo This is a good week to communicate with friends, clients, and loved ones. The subject matter may drift to the past and it is possible that previous hurts will be brought into the light of day and healed. You are in a playful and creative frame of mind. You can generate a useful product out of what might have appeared to be old junk.

Virgo Your knack for tact and diplomacy will serve you well this week. Old issues may surface once again among family members or coworkers, and your ability to smooth troubled waters is invaluable. Those with children may need to reinforce previously taught lessons. Your temptation is to backtrack on decisions concerning lovers and/or children. This may not be such a good idea.

Libra Love life is favorable and self-renewing at this time. Those with children will have the opportunity to improve those relationships and to exchange wisdom in positive ways. You can take any negative thought or circumstance and turn it around at this time by altering how you think and communicate about it. Give this magical trick a try.

Scorpio You may be continuing to work on a personal or financial project that began in December. You probably didn't expect it to take this long, but Mercury has gone retrograde in the meantime and altered the situation enough to require more tinkering. Meanwhile, you have favorable aspects concerning relationships to family and significant others. Your attention may also be drawn to beautifying your environment.

Sagittarius Double-check all details that have to do with calculations. You may be asked to track down and organize records of previous expenses this week. There are favorable aspects for communications, education, and local errands. You are tempted to spend more than you know is wise. Window shopping is not recommended if you need to save money.

Capricorn Mercury retrogrades back into your sign this week. This suggests you will be rethinking plans, conversations, or decisions that you thought were already settled. You may feel the need to ask for extra time while you reevaluate, which is perfectly OK. This is a good period to reorganize files and clean up paperwork.

Aquarius Mechanical and electrical objects may be cantankerous at this time, but most problems are solvable. You have the opportunity to make improvements in challenging relationships. Charm, empathy, and a winning smile are on your side. Don't hesitate to make use of them. Career and reputation are given a small boost during this period.

Pisces One or more persons are helping you from behind the scenes, even if you are unaware. Your frame of mind is positive, maybe even jubilant. You are feeling a bit self-indulgent, so if you are on a post-holiday diet, avoid the situations that would tempt you. Aspects concerning love, social life and romance are favorable.

  • 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)
