For the week of August 14-20, 2002

For All Signs Cosmic conditions for the next six months are especially favorable for integrating new systems with whatever has been the norm or traditional. We may do this on multiple levels: political, economic, social, or personal. It is a good period to inaugurate improved solutions for a better future. The time favors ordered, disciplined, and gradual transition, rather than overthrow or rebellion.AriesA relationship or new agreement, begun in May, now comes to a minor turning point. You may have some thoughts about going back to where you started, but at this time the situation calls for making an adjustment and moving forward. You can reevaluate in October-November. Within the last two weeks you began a new project related to self-improvement and/or your job.

TaurusYou may be tempted to overindulge this week, so if you are on a self-improvement program, concentrate on sticking with it. Give yourself a break in another area so you won't feel abused. Your imagination and creativity are strong and you may be drawn to participate in the arts or music in some way.

Gemini Relationships among family members may be strained this week. There are elements of obsessive thinking and criticism involved. Be intentional about keeping an open mind and don't insist on a black and white answer. It is possible someone is doing this to you, but you can resist falling into that trap. You have the right to retain your identity while maintaining the relationship with dignity.

Cancer Your good judgment is in one place while your heart is in another. It could be highly distracting. Concentrate while driving or handling tools. If possible, don't force a decision just now. You might benefit by writing a note to yourself from the voice of logic and contrast it with a separate letter that speaks for the soul so you can gain a bit of clarity.

Leo Aspects this week are a mixed bag. On one hand, your mind is set upon taking care of responsibilities. On the other, you may be thoroughly bored with routine and need to break loose and do something totally out of the ordinary. Even if you are not aware of this, your significant other is, and may introduce an element of surprise into the situation.

Virgo There is a conflict between home and career concerns and it appears that you are the one who needs to find the fair compromise. Think carefully about what is truly important to you now, at this time in your life. Don't allow old habits or rules from the past to make your decision.

Libra Venus is in your sign and will be traveling "with you" through September 6. Her presence gives you an air of poise and people will simply like how you look. Often when Venus is prominent we become more interested in personal appearance, art forms, and romance. We have a greater need and desire to be with others, or they with us.

Scorpio Concentrate on keeping an open mind this week. You or another may be trying to press an issue or convince one another of a particular point of view. The real underlying issue is a question of who has the power. It is not necessary to play this game.

Sagittarius Archers can sometimes be strongly opinionated. You occasionally confuse what you think with who you are. There are those who will disagree with you this week. Just don't let it become a battle to the death. Your identity is not at stake. You may not like what is happening, but you can choose a more opportune time to argue the point.

Capricorn Give attention to the lead paragraph because it particularly applies to you and will be a factor underlying all the details of your life for several months. After a very long period of difficulty and transition, you are beginning to see some possible options rather than miles of solid brick walls.

Aquarius This is a great week for a vacation. You are bored with the routine and need some R&R, preferably near the water. Aspects favor travel, the law, and communications with those from a distance. Your intuition is particularly strong at this time and dreams may be especially meaningful.

Pisces You likely will enjoy a gift or favor this week from someone who loves you. Aspects encourage romance, intimate conversations, and benefits through sharing resources with others. You will particularly enjoy whatever is artistic or musical. If you must watch the budget, leave the credit cards at home, because you are feeling self-indulgent.

  • 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)
