"Winged Fury": Victoria Beckham
Volume IV, issue no. 10 of The Weekly Wonder
February 11 – February 17, 2008
Well my little winter crocuses, here in LA we’re already feeling the early effects of spring. Yes! Paris may get the fashions before we do, but we get the warm air, and this week that matches up perfectly with the Sun and Mars making a trine on Thursday. Whether you’re enjoying the warming effects of an early spring or just suffering from cabin fever somewhere in the frozen Midwest, this week you will definitely be chomping at the bit to break free of any cold hard ground you’ve been buried beneath for far too long. With the Sun moving away from a tight conjunction to Neptune and into a conjunction with the North Node this week our desires have a very strong hold on us and we may be guilty of seeing what we really want to instead of what’s actually happening, however, so be alert, Dear Ones! Be vigilant! Do you really need that fancy new iPhone or three-day margarita binge? This week is a good one for breaking new ground and getting aligned with your higher powers, so don’t squander your obsessive compulsiveness on new purchases or drugs and alcohol that only make you feel successful! Those most affected are fire and air signs born between the fourteenth and the eighteenth of the month, like Aries Victoria Beckham, born on April 17, 1974 and Gemini Courtney Cox, born on June 15, 1964. But read on, Little Starlings, there’s loads more future to scry into!
The Stars that You Are
Weekly Horoscopes: Remember to read for the sign on your ascendant too!
You’re at the apex of a strong formation between the Sun and Mars this week, Aries, so if your hat has a string, I suggest you tie it, as you may have trouble hanging onto it this week. Especially when you insist on dragging everyone you know to Magic Mountain! A word to the wise: when a five year old throws up on Dumbo it’s pretty contained, but when an adult spits up three Long-Island Ice Teas on Batman the results can be disastrous! With the Sun moving between Neptune and the North Node you’ve got your pulse on something powerful, the only question is; are you riding it or is it riding you?
Taurus, you’ve got an itch you’d really like to scratch right now, and you just may have to. If it involves going off your diet maybe you shouldn’t, but if it involves watching a Project Runway marathon and getting so inspired you redesign the little black dress using dental floss and paper towels thereby winning a contract with Vivienne Westwood, well, what could possibly be the harm in watching 24 hours of television straight? As Andy Warhol once said, “when I got my first television, I stopped caring so much about having personal relationships.” What on earth could go wrong if you watch a little TV?
I vividly remember a scene from a holocaust movie on TV in the eighties. There was a long line of people marching out of a European town with all their possessions in bags and jewels sewn into the linings of their coats. At some point, this suitcase a woman was carrying that she’d fought bitterly with her brother over just became too heavy. She came to a stop and without even looking at it, just let it fall to the side of the road and kept moving. You’ve got to let go of something this week, Gemini, and you may not want to, but it’s a question of priority. Do what that woman in that film did and don’t look back.
On ABC’S new show Eli Stone the title character is surrounded by strong women with extreme opinions. Although he’s a prophet and God is talking to him through George Michael, (it could happen!) George Michael doesn’t start singing until one of the women in his life gives him the cue. He must be a Cancer, Cancer, ‘cause strange things are afoot these days and you’ve got some powerful woman translating for you. With Mercury retrograde the trick is understanding what she’s REALLY telling you, so listen carefully, ‘cause by April you’ll see she was right all along. Remember! You gotta have Faith!
The Fire-bellied Toad allegedly owes its bright orange underbelly to “aposematic coloration,” which is nature’s way of warning predators that their prey is toxic and dangerous to eat. Leo, this week that fire in your belly could be good for you but not so great for everyone else. Of course, that’s only if they plan on getting in your way! Otherwise, you’ll be nice as pie. But one way or another, you WILL get your way this week. So if there’s anything you’ve been avoiding stop it immediately. Thursday no one can say no to you, and if they do, just engage your Unkenreflex and show ‘em your belly!
Wonder Woman had a magic lasso, her creator also created the lie detector and James Bond was forever facing truth serum in the hands of his enemies. I don’t know what you’ll be using to get the truth of the situation at hand, Virgo, but you owe it to yourself to try. With Mars squaring your sign and the Sun and North Node inconjunct your sign this is no time to get lazy! But with Venus trining your sign you might really want to. Just remember what happened to Dorothy, Scarecrow the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion in the poppy field! This week you owe it to yourself to stay alert and pay attention.
The Rolling Stones said it best: “You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find you get what you need.” This week, Libra, you’ve got some powerful aspects softening you up and getting you right where they want you just in time for the lunar eclipse next week. It’s time to focus on what you want and what you need and get clear about what those things actually are and even whether something you thought you wanted is actually something you need or vice versa. It’s a funny ol’ thing, but the two things are not the same thing and the thing is you’re about to find that out.
Dude. I just had one of those lucky google searches where what I found was way cooler than what I was looking for. I punched in “cartoon character who hates” and got back “Does God hate anyone?” (Answer: Yes! Sinners!) To “Everyone Hates Us,” the “us” in question being people who support Harry Potter’s love of Ginnie. My favorite by far was a blogger’s diatribe against the character “Anthony" in the cartoon strip For Better or For Worse. Now, no one’s as good at loving to hate as you are Scorpio, and this week is as good as any and better than most to put it to good use. Go on, get your hate on!
The new ads for America’s Top Model feature Tyra Banks in a dominatrix costume with a riding crop center-stage surrounded by a ton of languishing and Very Naughty models. Now, I don’t know if you’re Tyra or one of the models, Sag, but this week someone’s been bad and needs to be punished! With the Sun and the nodal axis sextiling your sign, it’s likely you’ve not got a very solid perspective on all this, so you might want to get a second opinion before you go swinging that crop around. On second thought, maybe not. Tyra is hard enough to forget, we don’t need to add a centaur with a riding crop!
Climbing a mountain takes time and careful preparation, and the reward of reaching the summit is foreshadowed by many things along the way. The view may be fantastic at the top, but what keeps us going is that we know we’re getting closer every time we stop to catch our breath and simply look around. This week, Cappy, it’s time to do just that. From planning the trip to undergoing the necessary training and getting the right tools you’ve worked hard to get here. The climb may not be over, but pause for a moment and take it in anyway. You’ve come a long way and the view is already pretty amazing.
I’ve already got into one fairly serious disagreement with a friend over this year’s election. And we’re both registered to the same party! What on earth is going to happen to the country once the primaries are over? But I don’t need to tell you all this, Aquarius. You’ve probably been in more debates this past week than any of the other signs put together. Be forewarned: by the general election you won’t have the Sun with the North node in your sign anymore. Better make the most of your pig-headedness while you can! We’ll pretty much sign your petitions just to get you to shut up! Go on! Make us!
Ice fishing has been going on for maybe thousands of years. It requires either furs or Gore-tex and if you’re from the Midwest, an SUV, some pals, and a six-pack or two. You’ve got to make a hole in the ice, drop a line, and then sit still for quite some time in freezing weather. It’s not for everyone, but I should imagine catching a fish after some time passes might seem pretty miraculous. Pisces, you’ve been frozen in motion over an issue with someone or something but this week there’s a crack in the ice. Drop your line and fish! Show that fish six feet of ice won’t keep you from breakfast, lunch, and dinner!
Till next week, that's it for me, Marvelous Readers! Be Safe, Courteous, and Happy!
Remember! You Have a Future!!!!!!
