Mars Sign Change  Mars yells, “Watch me now” as he sails into the adventurous, worldly realm of Sagittarius.

Horoscope, Thursday, September 20, 2012

It’s said that in the non-Euclidean universe, parallel lines can sometimes meet or diverge. And in real-life relationships, a straight line isn’t always the shortest distance between two people, because people are far too complicated to define with logic. As Mercury squares Pluto, use all of your faculties, including empathy, to make a connection. ARIES […]

New Moon in Gemini Did you say the wrong thing and hurt someone’s feelings? Did you accidentally give false information because you remembered it incorrectly? Did you blab when you shouldn’t have?

Saturn in Scorpio Just because you don’t know what to do (or where you are, or where to go, or who to know, or what to ask, or which way to turn) doesn’t mean you’re lost. It might mean you’re supposed to hang on tight for the moment. Saturn’s journey through Scorpio will bring to […]

Hungry Moon This Taurus moon is a hungry moon. She wakes us up, not only to the grumble in our stomach, but to the void in our self-esteem or the gnawing need in our heart. Sometimes she mistakenly thinks a shiny new possession will fix the problem. And other times she tries to fix everything […]

Outside with Charlie: Enjoy it now

Last week’s rainstorms did a pretty good job of soaking the forest and adding a bit of run-off to the rivers and streams coursing through the mountains and foothills.

Had they known then what they know now, Cris Steller and Gordon Helm confessed that they probably wouldn’t have made the career move that transformed Steller’s office into an Old West saloon.

Mercury’s Remote Control When people change the subject, it can seem random, but it’s usually for a good reason. The universe is the same.

Another drought year ahead? Survey says: Most likely

California may be looking at a fourth year of drought based on the latest snow survey conducted Jan. 29 at Phillips Station.

With sunny weather and not much snow on the ground to measure, Frank Gehrke, chief of the California Cooperative Snow Survey for the California Department of Water Resources, stuck a pole into the ground and came up largely empty.

The survey found a snow depth of 7.1 inches and a water equivalent of 2.3 inches, which is just 12 percent of the long-term average for this time of year at that particular snow course.

These results are down from measurements done Dec. 30 when there was 21.5 inches of snow on the ground with a water content of 4 percent.

“In a normal year we’d have about five feet of snow depth at this location this time of year,” said Gehrke.

Statewide, the snow water equivalent as measured by more than 100 sensors was 4 inches, or 25 percent of the historical average. That’s down from …

Venus Conjunct Neptune Romantic Venus and dreamy Neptune connect in unpredictable Pisces to mixed results.

Spirit Moon The Pisces moon enhances our experience with spiritual awareness. It’s not something that has to be talked about to be known.

Horoscope, Thursday, January 15, 2015

Notes from Mars and Saturn Mars and Saturn will highlight the difference between people who are good for you and people who aren’t. The people who are good for you bring out your best and highest.

Horoscope, Thursday, January 8, 2015

Detail Moon Most of the work will get done in a sudden wave of late afternoon productivity after the moon leaves ostentatious Leo for reasonable Virgo.
