In Which Life is a Roller Coaster

It has been a roller coaster couple of weeks. Last week I got hit with very bad news. Then earlier this week I was given some very good news. Then last night more bad news. It is exhausting. As is the weather. It keeps dipping and rising between spring loveliness to bitter cold. Even my weight is about these same two pounds—gaining and losing the same pounds month after month since May. Everything is up then down. So today is down.
Aries Horoscope for week of February 7, 2008 "Men should be barred from holding public office for 100 years," says billionaire Ted Turner. "Men have been running the world for too long and they've made a mess of it." If women were in charge, he adds, "It would be a much more peaceful, prosperous, equitable world in a very short period of time. You'd have a huge shift away from military budgets and into education and health care." I agree with everything Turner said except when he implied that men should be prohibited from serving. That's totalitarian, the exact opposite of what I trust a feminine majority would usher in. From an astrological perspective, by the way, 2008 is prime time to move forcefully in the direction of bringing more women into power. And it so happens that Aries people of both genders are best able to lead the way. To jumpstart your ability to fulfill this potential, I urge you to take three actions in the coming week to foster female authority. Men, you may devote two of these to boosting your inner woman.


  1. We are sorry to hear things are so up and down.


  2. This too, with time, shall pass. I am holding onto the knowledge that the dust always settles and usually things are better than they were before.
