Showoff Moon Cantaloupe and pumpkin seeds look an awful lot alike, but come harvest time it’s pretty easy to tell the difference. While the Leo moon inspires posturing, posing and showing off, remember that the early stage of an endeavor is no time to psych yourself out by comparing yourself to others. More development is […]

Fire-Sign Spirit The fiery combination of Sagittarius solar and Leo lunar influences will infuse the atmosphere with high energy, intensity and the spirit of expansion.

Full Moon Pre-Show Mercury and Saturn align to bring luck to this day before the full moon in Gemini. This alignment suggests that we think as far outside of our comfort zones as possible.

Sagittarius Sun Agenda The Scorpio sun was a constant reminder that in the blink of an eye, everything can change. The Sagittarius sun flips the idea by visiting new topics and insisting that change happens because we seek out what’s novel and crave all things fresh. The Sagittarius sun will be your guide to starting […]

Expectation Moon People get antsy when they want too much or promise too much. The good news is that the dynamic can be avoided even as the Pisces moon stirs things up with Saturn.

Horoscope, Wednesday, November 18, 2015

Truth, Mercury, Cats In light of yesterday’s conjunction of the sun and communication planet Mercury, much that wanted to go unsaid probably had to go “said” instead. Once the cats get let out of the bag, they want to eat. Expect plenty of gossip to feed hungry, curious minds. Remember that just because there is […]

Union Mine loses tough one

Capricorn Moon Maybe it doesn’t feel like you’ve worked hard, but if you’ve worked consistently for hundreds of days, that counts! Steady determination may be the hardest of work of all. Showing up time after time is the kind of work that will pay off under the Capricorn moon. Whatever you’ve done, give yourself credit […]

Please resign, Mr. Meyers

For the sake of our students, parents and El Dorado County’s educational system it’s time for Jeremy Meyers to resign his elected position as Superintendent of Schools. The news of Mr. Meyers’ first driving under the influence of alcohol arrest on June 9 came as a shock. Last week’s second DUI arrest simply stunned us. How could the person […]

Frauds among heroes

EDITOR: John Poimiroo’s Nov. 9 California Rambling column is timely and right on the mark. I have lived in Placerville for more than 25 years and during that time I have come across people who falsely claimed past membership in special operations military units, falsely claimed military POW status and falsely claimed military awards for […]
