Horoscope, Sunday, March 2, 2014

Retrogrades and Relationships Saturn joins Mars in a backward dance, adding new insight to the warrior’s study of relationships and how they ebb and flow to reflect the needs of both people at different times of life. If you’re in it for the long haul, accepting change is part of the deal. But it may […]

March pending home sales improve but overall pace leveling

National Association of Realtors WASHINGTON, D.C. — Pending home sales increased in March and remain above year-ago levels, but contract activity in recent months shows only modest movement, according to the National Association of Realtors. The Pending Home Sales Index, a forward-looking indicator based on contract signings, rose 1.5 percent to 105.7 in March from a downwardly […]

Best of 2012: Individual Performance

Keaton Subjeck — The annual boys CIF State Wrestling Championships is without question the most difficult, grueling and challenging event a prep athlete faces. Simply gualifying is a big accomplishment but to come away with one of eight awarded medals is huge. The Oak Ridge 160-pound junior did just that last March at Fresno’s Rabobank Arena when […]

Horoscope, Monday, December 31, 2012

Goodbye, 2012 The Leo moon is the perfect lighting scheme for an unforgettable New Year’s Eve. She highlights creativity and fun. She brings focus to the most entertaining aspects of the night and unites the crowd in cheer and song. This is, after all, the year that many believed would never come. Be safe, well […]

Sports scene: Dec. 27, 2012

Reunion A reunion is being planned for former runners from El Dorado High who ran under coach Jim Myers during the 1970s, 80s and 90s. The reunion will be at the Forester Pub & Grill in Camino on Dec. 29 at 4 p.m. for former runners, wifes/husbands, significant others and family members. Contacts are Dan […]

Horoscope, Sunday, December 30, 2012

Lights, Camera, Leo Moon The Leo moon is a playful diva, working out exactly what she has to do to steal the spotlight. Those who know that they are entertaining will find this to be a hospitable time to weave their magic, mesmerize a group and win audience approval. We all need a little fun […]

Horoscope, Saturday, December 29, 2012

Name That Feeling Feelings are hard to accurately pin down with a name or description, especially because they not only happen in the moment in which they are triggered, but continue happening as they resonate and evolve with every recollection. The Cancer moon lingers in a void-of-course phase inspiring a murky recounting and reinterpretation of […]

Horoscope, Friday, December 28, 2012

Don’t Feel Sorry for Her English Romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley consoled the moon “wandering companionless” through the sky, asking: “Art thou pale for weariness/Of climbing heaven and gazing on the earth?” No need for concern now, as the full moon is robust with emotion in her home of Cancer and quite content on her […]

Horoscope, Thursday, December 27, 2012

Saturn Cleans Up Christmas Aftermath If you didn’t get all that you wanted for Christmas and you just can’t shake the longing that goes with that unfulfilled desire, you’re not so bad off. Yearning makes the mind obsidian-sharp. The relationship between Saturn and Pluto brings an opportunity to steel your discipline and clarify your goals. […]

Horoscope, Wednesday, December 26, 2012

Boxing Day Stars A sextile of Saturn and Pluto brings home the major themes of this Boxing Day, a day when bosses serve employees and when those who have give to those who have not. Though the standards of living have vastly improved since the Middle Ages when this tradition started, the needy are still […]

Horoscope, Tuesday, December 25, 2012

Cosmic Christmas Forecast “Peace on Earth, good will toward men” may be a Christmas ideal, but it’s an attainable one. The harmony you create inside yourself will count toward the effort and spread to loved ones and out into the world. Mars enters Aquarius, driving philanthropic efforts and encouraging us to take personal responsibility for […]

Horoscope, Monday, December 24, 2012

Mars Leaves Capricorn Though one hates to get too caught up in the commercial aspects of this time of year, they are difficult to ignore, as Jupiter and Uranus draw interest to the economic sector. Mars heading for Aquarius urges us to be generous in every way that we can; money may be the least […]

Horoscope, Sunday, December 23, 2012

Walk It Off Under the Taurus Moon According to some statisticians, an average person living to the age of 80 will walk around 110,000 miles in a lifetime. Because Earth’s circumference at the equator is 24,901.55 miles, that’s the equivalent of walking several times around the globe. Under the determined Capricorn sun and with the […]

Horoscope, Saturday, December 22, 2012

Capricorn Sun Challenge Yesterday’s solstice rang in a new season. Now the Capricorn sun issues a challenge: Can you keep old business separate from new business? Think of yourself as a doctor who must be careful not to spread germs from one patient to the next. The doctor uses the ritual of hand-washing to accomplish […]

Horoscope, Friday, December 21, 2012

Mighty Fine Solstice! “Merry” goes with “Christmas,” “happy” goes with “New Year” and “good” goes with “night.” After extensive surveying, the astrological consensus decided that “mighty fine” is a near perfect match for “solstice.” And of course, by “extensive surveying” I mean I asked myself. And also a cat. So, let us be the first […]

Horoscope, Thursday, December 20, 2012

End of Season Wrap-Up It may feel like you’re already there, but the solstice tomorrow is the official start of winter. On this the last day of the season, say goodbye to the adventures, pleasures, hardships and happenings of the past year. The passionate Sagittarius sun and the invigorated Aries moon will help you imagine […]

Horoscope, Wednesday, December 19, 2012

Venus Favors Risk By definition, extenuating circumstances are uncommon enough to warrant a special pardon or reduced punishment. If someone needs such a pardon regularly, the problem is perhaps the extenuator and not the circumstance. Venus trine to Uranus favors taking a risk. Note that taking a risk is not the same thing as taking […]

Horoscope, Tuesday, December 18, 2012

Prophetic Dreaming Under the Pisces Moon Day and night will have completely different tones as the moon goes from Aquarius to Pisces. Social efforts and encounters by daylight will provide fodder for an introspective night of mysterious and insightful dreaming. So keep paper and pen by the bedside, and before you go to sleep, affirm […]

Horoscope, Monday, December 17, 2012

Mercury Opposes Jupiter The opposition of Mercury and Jupiter highlights differences of opinion, contractual disagreements and alternative viewpoints on singular issues. Most people would agree that there is more than one way to skin a cat, though hardly anyone knows why such a thing would need to happen in the first place. ARIES (March 21-April […]

Horoscope, Sunday, December 16, 2012

Moon Inspires Philanthropy Under the Sagittarius sun and the Aquarius moon, we think of those whose needs are more basic, urgent or pronounced than our own. As one 19th-century Sagittarian journalist and abolitionist suggested, “Never respect men merely for their riches, but rather for their philanthropy; we do not value the sun for its height, […]

Horoscope, Saturday, December 15, 2012

Venus Favors the Exotic Venus does a cha-cha-cha into Sagittarius, inspiring a fascination with the spice of distant lands. And though it seems improbable to crave something you’d never tasted in the first place, such cravings will become a regular occurrence between now and Jan. 8, 2013. Expectation and imagination mingle to create exotic appetites. […]

Horoscope, Friday, December 14, 2012

Moon Waxes Un-poetic The Capricorn Moon has nothing against poetry and song, and yet such frivolity is not a top priority. There’s so much serious work to be accomplished between now and the end of the year! Tomorrow brings a Venus transit and thus a change of heart. Diligently tend to the work that’s dear […]

Horoscope, Thursday, December 13, 2012

Follow the Adventurous New Moon There are many who would follow the beat of a different drummer if only there were such a drummer. Often the main drummer is playing so loudly that no one else can compete. The New Moon in Sagittarius offers a rest from the main action and the perfect opportunity for […]

Horoscope, Wednesday, December 12, 2012

New Moon Review No one knows for sure, but I suspect that labeling things “better” or “worse” is a uniquely human impulse. Something tells me raccoons and alligators don’t spend much thought ranking their experiences. So if the upcoming New Moon inspires you review past decisions and determine whether you are better or worse off, […]

Horoscope, Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Mercury and Neptune Show Reruns Talk is cheap when Mercury and Neptune square off and because Mercury is traveling backward, this aspect will happen yet again, coloring the action until the 13th. At least this is the last time this year for such a square. Do your research. Check references.  Ask for proof that people […]

Horoscope, Monday, December 10, 2012

Now Available: Mercurial Mind Expander Though the spherical earth theory has been alive and well for thousands of years, there are still those diehards that prefer to believe we’re all living on a more or less flat disc floating in an ocean of sky. Mercury enters the expansive realm of Sagittarius, encouraging us to keep […]

Horoscope, Sunday, December 9, 2012

Blame the Void-Of-Course Moon The void-of-course Libra Moon of the early day has a suggestion: sleep in as long as possible. Your body can probably use the extra chance to repair itself from yesterday’s wear and tear. Besides, you’ll probably be only minimally productive if you let your to-do list run you around all morning. […]

Horoscope, Saturday, December 8, 2012

Moon of Unbalanced Balance The Libra moon reminds us that grace and elegance require awareness. Represented by the balance-beam scales, an early technology for measuring gold, silver, souls and other valuables, the Libra moon suggests that balance is created with unbalance. You won’t know to add or subtract weight from the scale until you see […]

Horoscope, Friday, December 7, 2012

Love and the Libra Moon The Libra moon points out that the obvious things you do for love are only the tip of the iceberg. As it is with icebergs, about 80 percent of the mass lies unseen below the water. In love, this percentage may include ideological adjustments, practical preparations, ego death and personal […]

Horoscope, Thursday, December 6, 2012

Virgo Moon Assembles a Production Line This will be the most productive day of the week. Even though the Sagittarius sun brings an awareness of the wide array of choices in this vast world, the Virgo moon helps us focus on only the most practical options. Ever-organized, the Virgo moon helps us stick to the […]

Horoscope, Wednesday, December 5, 2012

Here’s the Plan Motivational guru Jim Rohn said, “If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.” Boxer Mike Tyson said, “Everyone has a plan ‘till they get punched in the mouth.” To plan or not to plan? […]

Horoscope, Tuesday, December 4, 2012

Leo Moon Offers Permission for Selfishness Selfishness often gets a bad rap. People can’t function without some amount of self-service, care and awareness. Often, it’s those who refuse to give themselves necessary attention who are the most difficult to be around. The Leo moon suggests that this is the perfect time to tend to No. […]

Horoscope, Monday, December 3, 2012

What the Lion Had All Along Like the cowardly lion of “The Wizard of Oz,” the Leo moon is sometimes filled with bravado and false pride; other times, he’s tearful and shaking from fear. At his best, he embodies both sides of that coin, feeling the fear and drawing on whatever resources can be found […]

Horoscope, Sunday, December 2, 2012

Jupiter Calls It’s the moment of truth. In the poker game of the stars, Jupiter sits across from the sun with a jolly look on his face (that could be interpreted as arrogance) and casually asks everyone at the table to show their cards. But life isn’t totally like poker. In poker, the best cards […]

Horoscope, Saturday, December 1, 2012

Jupiter Pushes His Luck Who are the lucky ones? Often we assume that the people we admire are somehow happier than us, experiencing life more vividly as they lead glamorous, problem-free lives. Of course, that’s usually not true. Tomorrow’s opposition of the sun and Jupiter is already challenging your ideas about what it means to […]

Horoscope, Friday, November 30, 2012

Cancer Moon House Party How-To Don’t be surprised if you start thinking of going home and putting on your pajamas in the middle of the day. A cozy Friday in your own abode may seem massively appealing as the moon relaxes at home in Cancer. And don’t worry. If you decide that tea and television […]

Horoscope, Thursday, November 29, 2012

Post-Full Moon Haze The void-of-course Gemini moon is emotionally drained by last night’s fun and not nearly as talkative as usual. Luckily, the way Venus and Mars are arranged, words are unnecessary. Once you decide what you want, your desire will find its own language, and all will be evident in the way you move […]

Horoscope, Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Storytelling Moon The full moon in Gemini and the penumbral lunar eclipse introduce a good point. Our lives are ordered around stories. Stories are rides better than roller coasters. Stories are rocks that outlive generations. Stories are always different depending on who is doing the telling. What’s your story? ARIES (March 21-April 19). You won’t […]

Horoscope, Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Mars and Pluto Join Forces Power means different things to different creatures. To a whale, it might mean plankton; to a tree, the sun. To humans, it often means the ability to do something in a preferred way. Mars and Pluto conjoin, reminding us that when those ways are impeded, we can either struggle or […]

Horoscope, Monday, November 26, 2012

Mercury Straightens Up Sometimes you start with the facts and draw conclusions based on the evidence. But the human brain doesn’t always naturally follow this sequence. More often we skip to the conclusion and look for facts to back it up. Neither method is perfect, but the first way, which will take longer, would work […]

Horoscope, Sunday, November 25, 2012

Feeling Spendy? Blame the Taurus Moon You’ve heard what happens when a bull enters a china shop, and a bull in a department store is no better — especially with the Taurus moon casting a love spell on all credit cards. Swiping the magnetic strip is dangerous in this lunar climate, which stimulates our appetite […]

Horoscope, Saturday, November 24, 2012

Aries Moon Says Avoid the Wait The void-of-course Aries moon in tandem with Mercury retrograde in Scorpio produces a low-grade frustration for those who are waiting for something to happen. The remedy is not to wait. Go about your business as though you were not dependent on anyone or anything else. Excellent organization skills will […]

Horoscope, Friday, November 23, 2012

Mars and Uranus Call for Stress Management It’s a good thing that the person who said “there is no such thing as stressful situations, just stressful responses” remains unknown. If that person were known, he or she might suffer a retaliation today. Mars and Uranus square off, and we all get realistic. Some situations are […]
