Kaiser needs to improve follow-up care for mental-health patients BY ANDY WEISSKOFF

I

’m a psychotherapist who until recently worked with adults in the psychiatry department at Kaiser Permanente in Santa Rosa. I’ve been there over seven years. I recently turned in my resignation because I can no longer do the work I do best—eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy for people with severe trauma—effectively and safely. There’s simply not enough time for the patients. But as I’m leaving, I’m trying to improve the system for the multitudes of mentally ill clients still to come through Kaiser’s doors. Kaiser is the number one mental-illness care provider in California. Therapists are to mental healthcare what primary care physicians are to the rest of healthcare. Yet the average wait time between therapist visits in Santa Rosa is currently five weeks. In other Kaiser mental-health clinics, the waits are even worse. I became a steward for the National Union of Healthcare Workers a scant three months ago, with the intent of joining the ongoing campaign to provide better basic care to our clients. The union has been doggedly addressing the deficiencies in our system for the three years since they were voted in as our union. In 2012, they were successful at triggering an investigation by the Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC), the state’s regulatory agency that oversees HMO behavior. In June 2013, the DMHC fined Kaiser $4 million for failing to provide timely initial access to services. To avoid future fines, Kaiser transferred resources from follow-up care to initial care. Therapists started seeing people more quickly for their first visit, but subsequent visits got pushed further and further away. The clients had better access, true, but not to care. Kaiser is still attempting to beat the original $4 million fine. The case, a face-off between the DMHC and Kaiser, is set to go to court in Oakland in mid-May. People with mental illness deserve more than a timely first visit. If the laws are unclear about the basic services Kaiser needs to provide its members, it’s time to clarify the laws. Andy Weisskoff lives in Sebastopol. His blog, 90daystochange.com chronicles his efforts at improving managed mental healthcare from the inside out. Open Mic is a weekly feature in the ‘Bohemian.’ We welcome your contribution. To have your topical essay of 350 words considered for publication, write openmic@bohemian.com.

The New Petalumans

I am one of those newly minted Petalumans (or, as I call myself, a Petaluwoman) who can’t say enough good things about my adopted town (“Flourishing Transplants,” March 12). I moved here from Marin in January after I was blindsided by a divorce. Still in recovery mode, just found the perfect support group, which meets on Kentucky Street once a week for two months—within walking distance. Never in my life have I felt as if I fit in so well to a town as I do here. I’m a bit eccentric; so is the town. I appreciate its sweetness—the other night, a neighbor asked me to come into his yard to look at identical twin baby hummingbirds in their teeny, tiny nest. I adore its friendliness, since I’m a Midwesterner; Marin was not that friendly. People talk to me for a few minutes and then say, “I’m glad you’re here.” I love all the interesting activities, and the fact that there are lots of other East Coast people, which is what I was originally.

LINDA JAY Petaluma

Petaluma had suburbs; now a bunch of people are moving from the big city looking at what has always been an awesome little town and seeing it as simply a suburb of their big city. And seriously, not gentrifying? As people flee the high prices of San Francisco and Marin, they drive up rents here. Petalumans are moving to Santa Rosa because they are being priced out. Money from Marin and San Francisco has been buying up real estate for profit. Petaluma Hotel, where all the poor people lived, has been gentrified. I came to a sweet, affordable town a

decade ago, hoping someday to be able to buy a home and live my life here. Now what I see is gentrification and strip malls popping up everywhere. And as a single parent, I have watched my dream of being able to afford my own home here fly out the window.

SARAH Via online

Petaluma pretends to be part of Marin County already. Homes selling for $1.5 million in San Francisco cannot be compared to the barns being sold for $500,000 (as you put it, one-third the cost) in Petaluma. So do you think the people working at the new Target store can afford these houses? Absolutely not. How is the public transportation system in Petaluma? Any buses across town every 20 minutes? Or does the community only cater to people with cars and SUVs? What companies have moved there that are not part of the monoculture strip malls and restaurant chains? People with money cannot afford to live in the Bay Area, so they are migrating to the North Bay where they can price out those who have been here all this time? Might want to reconsider that G-word qualification.

Time Has Come I attended Steve Martinot’s talk (“Imagine No Prisons,” March 5). I was able to go only because my (very hard to obtain) visit with my son at San Quentin didn’t happen due to him being sent to the Central Valley. We can absolutely keep the public safe while not subjecting people who are accused or convicted of crimes to cruel and unusual punishment. Many citizens support prevention and treatment of addiction and mental illness over punishment. Concepts

Good Worm, Bad Worm Regarding where the earthworms have gone (“Rhapsodies & Rants,” March 12), I want to bring attention to the recent article in the Natural Resources Defense Council Journal titled “The Worm Has Turned” at www.onearth.org. The article discusses how nonnative worms are actually responsible for destroying forest topsoil.

The League of California Cities and the California Police Chiefs Association have come out in support of SB 1262, introduced last month by State Sen. Lou Correa that would regulate medical marijuana in the state. This marks a significant shift in the groups’ stance since just last year, when the two groups helped kill at least four similar bills in legislation. But in August last year the U.S. Department of Justice said it would not enforce federal laws in cases of medical marijuana, and a recent poll by the Public Policy Institute of California shows 60 percent of likely voters in the state support legalization.

GOT YOUR BACK Efren Carrillo, right, walks away from a court appearance in his peeking case last year. He denies trying to

influence media coverage of his legal woes.

n owner of the Press Democrat appears to have influenced coverage of at least one major story in Santa Rosa’s daily paper of record.

A series of text messages between Doug Bosco and Efren Carrillo from October and November of 2013 indicate that Bosco, a former U.S. Congressman

and co-owner of the Press Democrat—and a supporter of embattled 5th District Sonoma County Supervisor Carrillo— has pushed for coverage of a flashpoint issue in Santa Rosa: the death of Andy Lopez, who was shot and killed by a Sonoma County Sheriff’s deputy while carrying a toy AK-47 last October. The messages obtained by the Bohemian reveal a spirit of friendship that exists between the

men. But they also raise questions about whether Bosco has tried to sway coverage at the PD as it relates Carrillo’s arrest on July 13, 2013. A top editor at the paper flatly rejects any suggestion that Bosco has attempted to exert influence over coverage of the arrest.

The Digital Trail On Oct. 24, 2013, Bosco texted Carrillo, “Do you know the ) 19

“We could . . . not ignore that the political landscape on this issue was shifting,” say the groups in a press release from Feb. 21. “Our two organizations independently came to realize that although we remain strongly opposed to marijuana use, it is increasingly likely that in the near future some statewide regulatory structure for medical marijuana could be enacted.” While that’s not exactly a cry to “legalize it,” it’s the first pro-marijuana stance by either group. SB 1262 would require in-person doctor evaluations and automatically audits doctors who recommend over 100 patients per year for medical marijuana use. It would also assign the Department of Public Health the task of ensuring that all marijuana sold at dispensaries is pesticide-free, and that proper security measures are in place at dispensaries throughout the state. It also upholds local governments’ authority to permit or disallow dispensaries in their jurisdiction. A ballot measure is expected in 2016 that would expand legalization and regulate the industry.—Nicolas Grizzle

The Bohemian started as The Paper in 1978.

Carrillo ( 16

The Paper Trail Efren Carrillo was arrested in the early morning hours of July 13, 2013, after a woman twice called 911 about an intruder on her property.

Schreeder on Feb. 27, seeking access to the 911 tape or transcripts. The city of Santa Rosa delayed its response beyond the 10-day statutory limit set by the California Public Records Act, citing a need, it wrote, for further “consultation with another department or agency that has a substantial interest in the response to this request.” On March 12, the Bohemian’s request for the 911 tape was denied. Administrative secretary Carrie Behler wrote that the 911 tape or transcript of the tape was exempt under a section of the law that says investigative records can be exempted from public review. At issue is whether an incident that occurred eight months ago is still under “investigation.” The Washington, D.C.– based nonprofit Freedom Forum, which advocates on transparency issues through its First Amendment Center, notes in a roundup of state laws relating to public disclosure of 911 calls that, in California, those calls “fall under the California Public Records Act, which makes all records available to the public through request.” The Bohemian, in its request for the 911 tape, noted that the law says “any reasonably segregable portion of a record shall be available for inspection by any person requesting the record after deletion of the portions that are exempted by law.” Behler said the decision to withhold the contents of the 911 tape from public review was made by her “in consultation with” Rhonda M. McKinnon, technical services division manager with the Santa Rosa Police Department.

‘Thank you for ensuring the PD covered the memorial set up for Andy Lopez!’

Carrillo & ‘PD’ Respond

The Bohemian sent a set of questions via email to Press

Democrat editorial director Paul Gullixson concerning Bosco’s guarantee of coverage of the Lopez fund—“I can get plenty of publicity through the PD”—and its coverage of the ongoing Carrillo case. In his response, Gullixson did not address the Lopez fund coverage in the newspaper and says the Bohemian was “fishing for something that doesn’t exist.” “I’ve had no conversations with Doug Bosco about what happened with Efren Carrillo, and he has made no effort to contact me about our editorials or to exert influence one way or the other,” writes Gullixson. Gullixson adds: “Furthermore, I make no apologies for the editorial positions we have taken and the columns I have written about the Carrillo case. I don’t think a reasonable person would look at the totality of the coverage and conclude that we have somehow been soft on the supervisor. If anything, we’ve been taken to task by a number of people in the community, through letters to the editor and in phone calls, for being too hard on the guy and for not letting the matter drop. “But those have been in the minority. Most readers have been supportive of our coverage and the editorial positions we have taken, including our demands for disclosure in the police report, 911 tapes, etc., and our concern that this matter not end with a plea bargain and a blackout of information.” The Bohemian asked Gullixson if the PD had ever put in public records request for the 911 tapes or the police report: “I would just say that we have repeatedly stated our desire to access the police report, 911 transcripts, etc., and our belief that there’s a prevailing public interest in disclosure of this information.” In an email, Carrillo answered “no” and “no” to questions posed to him about whether he had asked for Bosco’s assistance to help influence the paper’s reporting on his arrest, or whether Bosco had made any assurances to him that he would do so. Bosco did not respond to two phone messages seeking his input for this story.

Lopez family? I would like to help them in any way I can, including financial. What a terrible tragedy all the way around.” Carrillo responded a few minutes later: “I was just at the vigil tonight, hundreds of supporters, dozens of TV stations, etc. I was left alone as I blended in the crowd. . . . I’m meeting the family tomorrow morning at their request, thanks for your offer. They are likely to seek legal help. . . . I’ll let you know— thanks for your compassion.” Bosco responded shortly thereafter, “Okay, they are likely to need some financial help with this.” On Oct. 30, Bosco sent another text to Carrillo: “Hi Efren. I feel sick every time I see Andy Lopez’ parents next to that coffin. Should we start a fund at First Community Bank that people can contribute to in support of the family? I can get plenty of publicity through the PD for it and of course will contribute myself.” A news story appeared in the Nov. 7, 2013, Press Democrat that announced a memorial fund had been set up to cover Lopez’s burial costs. That night, Carrillo texted Bosco, “Thank you for ensuring the PD covered the memorial set up for Andy Lopez!” The issue at hand is not whether a fund for the grieving family of Andy Lopez should have been set up (although one can imagine the ensuing outrage in Santa Rosa’s large Latino community, had Bosco’s sympathies instead rested with the officer in the shooting and the newspaper had written a news story announcing the establishment of a legal defense fund for him). Regardless of the well-intentioned and empathic push to set up a fund to cover funeral costs in a tragic incident, the question remains whether or not Bosco is using his power as co-owner of the Press Democrat to influence coverage of issues of concern to him.

Carrillo was arrested while wearing nothing but underwear and a pair of socks, and was reportedly intoxicated at the time of the arrest. He immediately entered a rehab program after getting out of the county lockup and has returned to his job as county supervisor, despite calls for his resignation. The Press Democrat has reported on the original incident and each of the five court delays in his trial for a misdemeanor peeking charge, but has not called for Carrillo’s resignation in its editorials. The paper has also reported that it has been unable to gain access to either the 911 calls or the police report from the July 2013 incident, yet there has been no reported story or editorial on the Carrillo case that says the paper has filed a public-records request for that information. The paper’s latest editorial on the subject, published Feb. 27, again noted that it had been denied access to the 911 tapes and police report, and said that the information should be released after the Carrillo incident has been adjudicated. “Santa Rosa’s interim police chief Hank Schreeder declined this newspaper’s latest request for the 911 tapes, citing the ongoing prosecution,” the PD wrote. “But given that, there should be no obstacle to releasing these documents, including the police report, after the case is resolved.” At that point, Carrillo will have had his day in court and would not be subject to any actionable questions about the criminal charges that were lodged related to the incident. On Feb. 6, Carrillo was appointed to the Sonoma Clean Power Board. Bosco emailed him to congratulate him on the selection. On Feb. 7, Carrillo texted him back, “Doug, thank you for your email and support!” The Bohemian put in a public records request with Chief

f you have a book that is 113 years overdue,” sighs the Librarian, holding up the ancient book that was secretly left in the overnight return slot, “You go to the counter!” In Glen Berger’s metaphysical one-person mystery Underneath the Lintel, that 113-year-old book soon launches the Librarian on a globe-hopping journey of discovery. Initially, the Librarian (played with baffled, escalating wonder and rising emotion by John Shillington) hopes to collect a whopping fine, sending a letter to the only address available—in China. When the Librarian discovers that the recipient, known only as A., also left a decrepit London laundry ticket (for a pair of trousers) in the returned book, he sets off for England in hopes of

tracking down more details about the presumed-dead Mr. A. And that’s when things get weird. Related as a rambling lecture titled “An Impressive Presentation of Lovely Evidences,” the Librarian’s shaggy-doggish story covers as much philosophical ground as the Librarian logs miles. Is A. some sort of a time traveler? A ghost? Or just a very old guy who leaves a lot of stuff behind? The truth—or at least the truth that the Librarian finally settles upon—is nothing short of earthshaking, and calls into question the randomness of fate, the nature of God and the defiant resilience of the human spirit. Directed by John Craven, the entire story is related from the stage of a second-rate auditorium. It’s all the Librarian can afford. As he produces one piece of evidence after another—each with a little numbered tag on a string—they are hung from a clothesline stretched across the stage. It’s one of many nice touches Craven brings to the proceedings, though the final half of the show—when the energy of the story really begins to pick up—has a few too many distracting musical cues. Did the Librarian really give someone a list of songs to play at specific moments in his lecture? Not likely. Such moments break the magic spell of the play rather than add to them. Thankfully, there is so much magic and bittersweet beauty in the script, and Shillington’s performance—a little rushed at first, but settling down later when he begins to allow himself to occasionally pause and react to the story he’s relating—is nothing short of captivating. Underneath the Lintel, like the mysterious Mr. A—and the Librarian who discovers his secret—is much bigger, and much more important, than it first appears. Rating (out of 5): ++++ ‘Underneath the Lintel’ runs Thursday– Sunday, March 14–March 30 at Main Stage West. 104 N. Main St., Sebastopol. Thursday–Saturday at 8:00pm. 5pm matinees on Saturday and Sunday. $15–$25. 707.823.0177

THERE’S A PLACE IN FRANCE Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan jet to the City of Lights to

rekindle love’s flame in ‘Le Week-End.’

Voyage en Douce ‘Le Week-End’ makes the most of its cast and Paris setting BY RICHARD VON BUSACK

S

eeking a more avantgarde crowd than the usual middle-aged angst movie, Le Week-End’s references to the revolutionary Antonio Gramsci and the dance sequence in Godard’s Bande à Part flatter us, expecting we’ll get it. The Paris street locations, more high than low, set the right mood in what is an older person’s version of work from the Richard Linklater/Julie Delpy axis.

Director Roger Michell (Notting Hill, Venus) follows married couple Meg (Lindsay Duncan) and Nick (Jim Broadbent), taking the Chunnel to celebrate their wedding anniversary in Paris. Meg is a spiky, handsome lady with excellent French. She’s the envy and despair of her husband, a philosophy professor facing ultimate futility at the end of his career. They’re at the stage in marriage where they’re

both best friends and worst nemeses. We get a suggestion of their power dynamic in one particular scene where Nick begs for something he wants from her on all fours—perhaps they’ve been playing this game for decades. Scottish actress Duncan here looks more like Joni Mitchell than Joni Mitchell does, seasoned and glowing with an aura of severity. (Duncan should be in line for any work Judi Dench isn’t getting.) The question of the film is whether sentiment will keep Meg attached to her flailing, needy husband. It gets worse when Nick’s failure is contrasted with the mad success of his old school chum (Jeff Goldblum), a fountain of nighembarrassing American compliments, with a wife half his age and a tremendous view of the Place de la Concord from his window. It’s a delight to have Goldblum back lately, but I waited for the payoff—a hint of the spite that comes from failure. ‘Le Week-End’ opens Friday at the Smith Rafael Center, 1118 Fourth St., San Rafael. 415.454.1222.

Bodacious Bottlerock Welcome to Bottlerock, 1999! On Friday, the Napa music festival announced the lineup for its second annual concert, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s full of â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;00s nostalgia acts. Weezer, LL Cool J, Outkast, Third Eye Blind, Barenaked Ladies, Smash Mouth. Although Smash Mouth played at the Sonoma-Marin Fair three times in the past eight years, big-time headliners like the Cure and Eric Church didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, and probably wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any time in the near future. Want more â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s? Blues Traveler. De La Soul. Spin Doctors. Gin Blossoms. Camper Van Beethoven. Rumored, but not confirmed, are the Mighty Morphinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Power Rangers (featuring Zordon), the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and a special 45-minute hologram set by that dancing baby from Ally McBeal. All in all, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an exciting lineup, if for no other reason than to see what all these bands look and sound like today, 15 years after their prime. And local groups will be performing as well: Trebuchet,Moonalice, the Incubators, the Graveyard Boots, Cosmos Percussion Orchestra, Grass Child, the Bell Boys, the Sorry Lot, the Deadlies, Irontom, Breakaway Patriot, Major Power & the Lo-fi Symphony and Kingsborough. Also included are hip indie acts like Robert Delong, Empires and Deerhunter. Spread out over three days, this will make for an interesting concert. Bottlerock takes place May 30â&#x20AC;&#x201C; June 1 at the Napa Valley Expo Center. 575 Third St., Napa. $129â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$3,000. www. bottlerocknapavalley.com.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Nicolas Grizzle

For the week of March 19

ARIES (March 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;April 19) â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you plant seeds in the garden, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dig them up every day to see if they have sprouted yet,â&#x20AC;? says Buddhist nun Thubten Chodron. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You simply water them and clear away the weeds; you know that the seeds will grow in time.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sound advice for you, Aries. You are almost ready to plant the metaphorical seeds that you will be cultivating in the coming months. Having faith should be a key element in your plans for them. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to ďŹ nd a way to shut down any tendencies you might have to be an impatient control freak. Your job is simply to give your seeds a good start and provide them with the persistent follow-up care they will need. TAURUS (April 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;May 20)

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank you, disillusionment,â&#x20AC;? says Alanis Morissette in her song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank U.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank you, frailty,â&#x20AC;? she continues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank you, nothingness. Thank you, silence.â&#x20AC;? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love to hear you express that kind of gratitude in the coming days, Taurus. Please understand that I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think you will be experiencing a lot of disillusionment, frailty, nothingness and silence. Not at all. What I do suspect is that you will be able to see, more clearly than ever before, how you have been helped and blessed by those states in the past. You will understand how creatively they motivated you to build strength, resourcefulness, willpower and inner beauty.

GEMINI (May 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;June 20) I bet your support system will soon be abuzz with ďŹ zzy mojo and good mischief. Your web of contacts is about to get deeper and feistier and prettier. Pounce, Gemini, pounce! Summon extra clarity and zest as you communicate your vision of what you want. Drum up alluring tricks to attract new allies and inspire your existing allies to assist you better. If all goes as I expect it to, business and pleasure will synergize better than they have in a long time. You will boost your ambitions by socializing, and you will sweeten your social life by plying your ambitions. CANCER (June 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;July 22)

During her 98 years on the planet, Barbara Cartland wrote 723 romance novels that together sold a billion copies. What was the secret of her success? Born under the sign of Cancer the Crab, she knew how productive she could be if she was comfortable. Many of her work sessions took place while she reclined on her favorite couch covered with a white fur rug, her feet warmed with a hot water bottle. As her two dogs kept her company, she dictated her stories to her secretary. I hope her formula for success inspires you to expand and reďŹ ne your own personal formulaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and then apply it with zeal during the next eight weeks. What is the exact nature of the comforts that will best nourish your creativity?

LEO (July 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;August 22) The Google Ngram Viewer is a tool that scans millions of books to map how frequently a particular word is used over the course of time. For instance, it reveals that â&#x20AC;&#x153;impossibleâ&#x20AC;? appears only half as often in books published in the 21st century as it did in books from the year 1900. What does this mean? That fantastic and hard-to-achieve prospects are less impossible than they used to be? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know, but I can say this with conďŹ dence: If you begin fantastic and hard-to-achieve prospects sometime soon, they will be far less impossible than they used to be. VIRGO (August 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;September 22) The Tibetan mastiff is a large canine species with long golden hair. If you had never seen a lion and were told that this dog was a lion, you might be fooled. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly what a zoo in Luohe, China did. It tried to pass off a hearty specimen of a Tibetan mastiff as an African lion. Alas, a few clever zoo-goers saw through the charade when the beast started barking. Now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ask you, Virgo: Is there anything comparable going on in your environment? Are you being asked to believe that a big dog is actually a lion, or the metaphorical equivalent?

LIBRA (September 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;October 22) In T. S. Eliotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poem â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock,â&#x20AC;? the narrator seems tormented about the power of his longing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do I dare to eat a peach?â&#x20AC;? he asks. I wonder what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thinking. Is the peach too sweet, too juicy, too pleasurable for him to handle? Is he in danger of losing his self-control and dignity if he succumbs to the

temptation? Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behind his hesitation? In any case, Libra, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be like Prufrock in the coming weeks. Get your ďŹ nicky doubts out of the way as you indulge your lust for life with extra vigor and vivacity. Hear what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m saying? Refrain from agonizing about whether or not you should eat the peach. Just go ahead and eat it.

SCORPIO (October 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;November 21)

Born under the sign of Scorpio, Neil Young has been making music professionally for over 45 years. He has recorded 35 albums and is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In early 1969, three of his most famous songs popped out of his fertile imagination on the same day. He was sick with the ďŹ&#x201A;u and running a 103 degree fever when he wrote â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cowgirl in the Sand,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cinnamon Girlâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Down by the River.â&#x20AC;? I suspect you may soon experience a milder version of this mythic event, Scorpio. At a time when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not feeling your best, you could create a thing of beauty that will last a long time, or initiate a breakthrough that will send ripples far into the future.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;December 21) There should be nothing generic or normal or routine about this week, Sagittarius. If you drink beer, for example, you shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stick to your usual brew. You should track down and drink the hell out of exotic beers with brand names like Tactical Nuclear Penguin and Ninja Vs. Unicorn and Doctor Mortonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Clown Poison. And if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a lipstick user, you shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be content to use your old standard, but should instead opt for kinky types like Sapphire Glitter Bomb, Alien Moon Goddess and Cackling Black Witch. As for love, it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make sense to seek out romantic adventures youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a thousand times before. You need and deserve something like wild sacred eternal ecstasy or screaming sweaty ďŹ&#x201A;agrant bliss or blasphemously reverent waggling rapture. CAPRICORN (December 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;January 19) Actor Gary Oldman was born and raised in London. In the course of his long career he has portrayed a wide range of characters who speak English with American, German and Russian accents. He has also lived in Los Angeles for years. When he signed on to play a British intelligent agent in the 2011 ďŹ lm Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, he realized that over the years he had lost some of his native British accent. He had to take voice lessons to restore his original pronunciations. I suspect you have a metaphorically comparable project ahead of you, Capricorn. It may be time to get back to where you once belonged. AQUARIUS (January 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;February 18)

Every now and then, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re blessed with a small miracle that inspires you to see everyday things with new vision. Common objects and prosaic experiences get stripped of their habitual expectations, allowing them to become almost as enchanting to you as they were before numb familiarity set in. The beloved people you take for granted suddenly remind you of why you came to love them in the ďŹ rst place. Boring acquaintances may reveal sides of themselves that are quite entertaining. So are you ready and eager for just such an outbreak of curiosity and a surge of fun surprises? If you are, they will come. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not, they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t.

PISCES (February 19â&#x20AC;&#x201C;March 20)

Before she died, Piscean actress Elizabeth Taylor enjoyed more than 79 years of life on this gorgeous, maddening planet. But one aptitude she never acquired in all that time was the ability to cook a hard-boiled egg. Is there a pocket of ignorance in your own repertoire that rivals this lapse, Pisces? Are there any fundamental life skills that you probably should have learned by now? If so, now would be a good time to get to work on mastering them.
