No sitting on photocopiers, Gemini

By Rob Brezsny

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Five years ago, I began making daily bike rides all over creation, through neighborhoods and wild spaces alike. Early on, I realized I'd regularly have to deal with loose dogs running toward me with the intent to bite. For protection, I armed myself with pepper spray and yummy treats. In all that time, I'm happy to report, I've squirted just one dog in the face. On the other hand, I've doled out hundreds of dollars' worth of canine snacks. Here's how this relates to your imminent future, Aries: When a beastly influence shows up, you may think you should bring out your equivalent of pepper spray. But I bet that offering treats will serve you better.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Many critics consider Maurice Ravel (1875-1937) to be one of the 20th century's best composers. He is most famous for "Bolero," an orchestral piece that was originally written as the accompaniment for a ballet. The stimulus that served as Ravel's major inspiration for "Bolero" was a visit to a cacophonous steel mill. He's your role model for the coming week, Taurus. I foresee you drawing creative excitement from events that are rife with noise and commotion. May your messy encounters lead you to produce great work, interesting surprises, or both.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This week I highly recommend that you NOT sit on a photocopier to create images of your buttocks. For reasons too complex to go into here, doing so would put you out of alignment with the cosmic flow. However, now is an excellent time for you to make other strong statements that involve your backside, at least metaphorically. For instance, you will attract fate's favors whenever you get your ass in gear to get to the bottom of things. Luck will also flow your way in direct proportion to how earnestly and rigorously you kick your own butt.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Some studies report that drinking moderate amounts of alcohol regularly is good for your heart. Other research says that's not true at all. Similarly, the frequent use of cell phones either raises the risk for brain cancer or it doesn't; prayer done on behalf of sick people either helps them or it doesn't. Different scientists have come to opposite conclusions on both issues. In fact, contradictory opinions about a wide range of health concerns are now routine. That's just one of several good reasons why you should tune out experts as you tune into your own body, Cancerian. Go in quest of insights about how to promote your physical well-being by trusting your still, small inner voice, not loud, confident authorities.
