Outside with Charlie: Going wild

Our area is either bordered by or very close to several national forests. The El Dorado, Tahoe, Stanislaus and Humbolt-Toiyabe are all within easy reach and there’s more to do and see out there than is possible to see in one lifetime.

Narcissism in the Fire-Sign Sky As for the people who seem to be in love with themselves, there’s something oddly attractive about them at first. If you accidentally become enamored, you’re not to be blamed as long as the fiery Sagittarius moon and the Leo sun rule the sky. Just know that it’s hard to […]

Mercury Follows the Sun Yesterday the sun left Cancer, the sign of home in general, to cross the threshold of Leo, the home of the sun specifically. This started an energizing shift, and Mercury continues the trend, sending communication power to the lionhearted part of the sky. People will be prone to exaggeration in the […]

For example, it’s up to the underlings to get along with the boss. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Do you have vacation time coming to you? Take it. Take all […]


ARIES (March 21-April 19). It hurts you that you do not possess the magic wand to make your wish happen today, but don’t worry. You will accomplish through perseverance what you couldn’t make happen through power. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The spirit of play is awakening inside you. There are certain people who bring it […]


ARIES (March 21-April 19). Just because a thing is healthy, beautiful and helpful doesn’t mean you like it. And the fact that you can like a thing and still find it ugly is further proof that you don’t have control over what you like. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Enlarge your circle. You’re a walking, talking […]


ARIES (March 21-April 19). Those who are trying to go “under the radar” don’t always get quiet or hide. Sometimes they talk — a lot. “Talking much about oneself can also be a means to conceal oneself.” — Friedrich Nietzsche TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Decisions by committee rarely lead to the best outcome. When it’s […]
