Baby survives crash in dad’s runaway car Sedan smacks SUV ROCHELLE BAKER RBaker@abbotsfordtimes.com

A

n Abbotsford baby is lucky to be alive – and uninjured – after crashing in a runaway car last weekend. According to police, a father strapped his 10-month-old son into a car seat before starting his vehicle at a home in east Abbotsford Sunday morning. However, the father left the car running, with the infant in the car, while he dashed into the house to retrieve some sunglasses. “When he comes back out, he sees his Japanese sedan has rolled down the driveway, across two lanes of traffic and slammed into a legally parked Toyota SUV across the street,” said Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald. A n A P D First reported @ patrol officer abbotsfordtimes.com happened to be passing the scene as people, including the worried father, clustered around the two crumpled cars at 10:45 a.m., said MacDonald. Luckily, the baby who was properly strapped into his car seat, didn’t appear to be injured despite significant damage to the two vehicles, said MacDonald. Though the child wasn’t sent to hospital, it’s expected he’ll be going for a check-up with his family doctor. “The parent felt awful, obviously,” said MacDonald, adding the circumstances could have been much worse. “I’m sure the parents are quite relieved the baby wasn’t injured, but can you imagine if a vehicle had been travelling along that road?” asked MacDonald. “We could have had a T-bone crash, and a T-bone would have been nasty for that child.” What’s more, leaving an infant in a running car with keys in the ignition is an invitation for both car and child to be abducted by a thief, he said. “Road safety starts in your driveway,” said MacDonald. The police officer on scene issued the father a violation ticket.

he BC Nurses’ Union is worried about children’s medical care after a move to convert pediatric beds for adult use at Abbotsford Regional Hospital. Fraser Health is using eight pediatric day care surgery beds to help absorb emergency room congestion, but stresses the change is temporary. Linda Pipe, BCNU Fraser Valley chair, said it’s not safe for kids to be housed with adults, and children may be forced to wait longer

BC Nurses’ Union isn’t happy ARH is handing children’s beds over to adults in the ER ward or be transferred to hospitals in distant communities. “You’ve got adults mixed with children and it’s not SCAN TO always appropriate they are in the same place,” said Pipe. “They have to have guidelines for the types of patients they can admit, but sometimes you don’t know certain things about

patients.” ARH is home to the only pediatrics department in the Fraser East region, and cutting back available beds SEE VIDEO might force the transfer of child patients to other hospitals, said Pipe. “Somebody from Hope may have to go to Surrey. It’s already a hardship for them to come to

Abbotsford.” Nurses are also worried children will have to wait longer to be admitted, and there will be fewer beds to isolate children who might be suffering communicable diseases, such as respiratory illnesses or viruses, she added. David Portesi, Fraser Health interim executive director of pediatric care, said the beds in the ARH unit are under utilized and can be safely converted for adult patients to ease congestion. see BEDS, page A4

– JEAN KONDA-WITTE/TIMES

Linda Pipe, BC Nurses’ Union Fraser Valley chair, said it’s not safe for kids to be housed with adults at Abbotsford Regional Hospital. Nurses held a rally outside the Abbotsford hospital on B.C. Family Day, Feb. 11, to protest the loss of pediatric beds at the facility.

world of possibilities has just opened up for W.J. Mouat’s Sebastian Muermann. The 17-year-old student body president and one of the school’s character council leaders is the first student in Mouat’s 40-year history to win the prestigious Loran Award, valued at $80,000. The Canadian Merit Scholarship Foundation grants the scholarship to talented young Canadians on the basis of character, service and leadership potential. In addition to four years of funding for undergraduate studies at a Canadian university, a comprehensive enrichment program is included. Muermann could hardly contain himself when he was chosen as one of the 30 Canadian students to receive the award. “I got the good news phone call and I was very crazy hearing somebody say you’ve got the Loran scholarship,” he said. “I really did not think of myself as somebody who wins awards or gets that phone call, so it was very cool.” Muermann – who speaks German and French and is leaning towards studies in international business and political science – is well aware of the opportunities the scholarship presents. “It means peace of mind for my Grade 12 year and it opens up a lot more doors,” he said. “I’m kind of in a unique spot and I have to make tough decisions, but it will be rewarding and I’m looking

W.J. Mouat’s Sebastian Muermann, 17, has landed the prestigious $80,000 Loran Award for post-secondary studies forward to it.” The Mouat student underwent a rigorous selection process that involved various application essays and days of panel interviews in Vancouver and Toronto. Meeting the other nominees was rewarding in itself, said Muermann. “All the nominees were these giving, kind, generous amazing people,” he said. “It just showed you Canada’s best resource is our youth.” A straight-A student and an athlete, Muermann had to detail his commitment to community service and leadership to the Loran selection

panels. In addition to his duties as student body president, he is a member of Mouat’s character council, which works on character development within the school. Plus, he’s on the Abbotsford Youth Council and teen advisory group for the Fraser Valley Regional Library. The lanky teen, who stands sixfeet, 11-inches tall, also plays centre on the Mouat Hawks basketball team and is a member of the school swim team. On weekends, when his schedule allows, he volunteers at the Menno Home for the elderly.

Needless to say, Muermann’s calendar is packed. “It’s a bit hectic but I enjoy it,” he said. “What motivates me is the drive I have, I guess, to push myself and find things that are fulfilling to me.” Muermann suspects he was selected for the award because of his willingness to stretch his boundaries. “I guess that made me appealing as a candidate,” he said. “I’m willing to try everything because that’s what it’s all about, especially in high school. “To try something new, and hope it works out.”

As such, the Fire Chiefs Association of British Columbia (FCABC) supports the federal government’s move to shift medical marijuana production out of residential homes and into a licensed commercial environment that will allow for the inspection and auditing of producers to ensure they meet all the regulatory requirements, said Beer.

FHA: children won’t be denied care BEDS, from page A1 Twelve children’s beds, which generally have an occupancy rate of 85 per cent, remain available along with six overflow beds for pediatric patients, said Portesi. Physical alterations to the “flex space” won’t allow access to the pediatric unit from the adult area, which can be switched back to children’s beds if the demand is there, he said. No adult patients will be accommodated at the expense of children, said Portesi. “We will not turn children away or cancel or delay surgeries to grant adults beds. Those are firm principles we work with,” he said. However, given the construction

costs involved Pipe is doubtful Fraser Health will return the beds to the pediatrics unit and the health authority is simply creating one problem to solve another. “We proposed other [cheaper] alternatives to Fraser Health. They say it’s a temporary move and not an issue, but it is an issue when you’re working in it, and kids deserve better.” Portesi said he understands the nurses’ concerns stem from a commitment to their young patients but suggests that their fears may ease as the plan goes forward. “At the end of the day if we can show them we can maintain our capacity for our pediatric patients . . . I suspect their fears will be allayed over time.”

Trust fund for victim’s children

ROCHELLE BAKER RBaker@abbotsfordtimes.com

F

riends and family have set up a trust fund for the two children of an Abbotsford woman who was murdered last week. Leanne Friesen, 40, was found by Abbotsford Police dead in her home with gunshot wounds on Feb. 6. Her estranged husband, Jeffrey Friesen, was arrested on scene and is charged with second-degree murder. Relatives and friends are looking to make provisions for the victim’s son, 11, and daughter, 12. Friesen didn’t have life insur-

ance and her husband has emptied her accounts and RRSP savings, according to her family. The trust fund will be used to keep the children’s lives as normal as possible and look after them in the future, said Leanne’s longtime friend, Michelle Boyd. “They’ve lost their mother and, really, their father,” she said. Kevin Mack, the victim’s younger brother, said the children are safe with family and coping well for the moment. “They are doing good right now,” said Mack. “They understand what’s going on, but it hasn’t yet come full circle for them. It’s going to be a

progression over time.” Family members want to ensure Leanne’s son can continue playing hockey and her daughter can still pursue her music and dance, said Mack. The fund will help mitigate in a small way the “tragic injustice” they’ve suffered, he said. “It’s not going to change what happened to them, but hopefully make their future a little better.” ■ Contributions to the trust fund can be made through any Envision credit union branch to account number 6793277 at the Envision Abbotsford Village Branch, 2090 Sumas Way.

Police find marijuana grower way over limit ROCHELLE BAKER RBaker@abbotsfordtimes.com

A

bbotsford Police trimmed a medical marijuana grow operation by 260 plants on Tuesday night. APD officers executed a raid at a house in northwest Abbotsford at 6:30 p.m., said Const. Ian MacDonald. Despite getting a green light for the warrant after contacting Health Canada twice, police found the owner had a permit to grow medicinal marijuana – but only for 35 plants, said MacDonald. Overproduction at the busted grow and a fire earlier the same day at another medicinal marijuana production site

illustrates the concerns police and fire departments have around uninspected, licensed marijuana growers, he said. “At the end of the day, what safeguards are in place to ensure once the licence is granted that the safety codes are being met, or the requirements listed in licence are being adhered to?” he asked. The licensed grower was raising eight times the number of plants he was permitted, said MacDonald, adding that abusing licences to overproduce marijuana is not uncommon and the excess often finds its way into the illegal market. “It’s being resold or redistributed through gangs or organized crime,

or independently being doled out to friends,” he said. Previous drug convictions don’t prevent growers from obtaining licences from Health Canada, MacDonald noted. “We’ve had people convicted of trafficking and importation get licences. The only consideration is whether the person applying has a medical issue requiring marijuana.” ■ To address the criminal and safety concerns around the current licensing system, the federal government has – FILE/TIMES promised changes that will shift pot production out of residential homes by Police are concerned licensed marijuana grow-ops often produce product for the illegal market similar to clandestine grows (above).

Regardless of whether a weapon used by a suspect is real or not, the fear experienced by the robbery victims is still extreme, said MacDonald. “When you see someone masked up and brandishing a firearm you are assuming it’s real,” he said. “For the victims of these robberies, it’s a high stress situation that leaves a lasting negative impression.”

From typed pages to the Internet W

arning: If you are easily nauseated by stories that begin with, “Years ago, when I first started out in this business. . . ” you’ll want to keep your barfbag handy. Consider yourself warned. Years ago, when I first started out in this business, there were newspapers still using lead type. I was lucky enough to land my first job at a desk equipped with an electric typewriter, but at least one of my senior colleagues – partly out of preference, but also because there weren’t enough electrics to go around – was still banging away at a sturdy, black, manual Underwood. To conserve paper, we typed our stories on the blank backs of press releases that came in the mail, were left at the counter, or were dropped through the mailslot in the front door. (It was purely a cost-saving measure: “recycle” was an uncommon word, and “environmentalist,” if it was even coined yet, was rarer still.) Stories were double-spaced, with extra-wide margins to leave room for second-thought, penciled-in changes and/or editors’ marks. Contrary to popularly distributed beliefs, there were (and are) no “drafts.” Community reporters, unlike their much higherpaid cousins at the dailies and nationals, were expected to bang out the story and get on with the next one. A reporter was expected to

BOB GROENEVELD

Odd thoughts formulate the story in his head (there were still relatively few “her” heads – journalism was still “a man’s job”) on the drive between the assignment and the office, and then “pour it out” onto the page. You gave the story a cursory look and corrected any typos you could find – maybe even shifted a phrase or sentence – in the margins and handed it to the editor. There was little that could be more embarrassing than to find, after your story appeared in print, that the editor had had to make significant changes, except maybe finding your “first draft” back on your desk with “Rewrite!!!” blue-penciled over it – indeed, if that happened, it was a signal that you might be in the wrong line of work. If you did your job reasonably well, the editor glanced at your stories and added headlines before sending them to the back shop, where they were laboriously retyped by professional typesetters. I never got to see the leadtype process in real-life – the Langley Advance (yup, I’m still here) had moved past that about

a year or two before I arrived. My stories came out of the typesetters’ machines on ticker-tape that another machine turned into galleys of type on photographic paper. The galleys went to proofreaders who marked typos, improper punctuation, and obvious misspellings in the margins. Corrections went through the whole typesetting process again, and then were pasted, line-byline, on top of the errant bits. Then the galleys were snipped into strips by compositors who pasted them onto “flats.” Headlines were pasted on later, as were black-and-white photos (colour was a luxury afforded only for the annual Christmas editions, and required more than a month of preparation). The flats went to the press in big cardboard boxes – which if jostled too much, resulted in some of the pasted pieces falling off the page, with sometimes hilarious (and occasionally disastrous) results on the newsstand. This bit of nostalgia came oozing out of the nether corners of my brain while I was thumbing through last Thursday’s edition of the Advance, my iPhone and Layar turning each of those pages into an extension of an Internet, which I hadn’t even imagined as I sat down in front of my first electric typewriter. ■ Bob Groeneveld is the editor of our sister paper, the Langley Advance.

hose who persist in pining for the penny need to put it all in perspective. It’s simply not worth the bother. The penny’s worth has diminished so dramatically over the years, it’s practically worthless by historic measures. If you (or more likely, your grandfather or great grandfather) had put a penny in a drawer in 1914 and you took it out today, it would now buy one 20th of what it would have bought had it been spent, instead being squirrelled away. (That’s of course, discounting the interest of collectors who would undoubtedly pay you a fair penny for that 1914 penny, especially if it’s in good condition and not too badly nicked or worn – a perfect penny of that date could net you nearly $100.) In other words, even that dime in your pocket today is worth about a half what a penny was worth at the start of First World War. Today’s dollar has the real-time value of a 1914 nickel. Indeed, the penny has become even less than worthless. For some time now, the Royal Canadian Mint has pointed out, it has been costing about 1.6 cents to mint a penny. That means every 50-cent roll of pennies has been costing taxpayers 30 cents more than they’re worth to put into circulation. So let’s no longer pine for the penny, shall we? It’s gotten long past its bestbefore date. In fact, perhaps it’s time to nix the nickel, too. Just move the decimal over one place, and the dime can be our new penny – still worth only half what a perfectly sensible and useful penny was only a handful of decades ago. The loonie consequently becomes the new dime, and the ten-spot could be minted as a new silver dollar (actually, more likely made of nickel or some other, cheaper composite metal). Our money would once again be worth every penny.

Bad habits drive him around the bend

Editor, the Times:

The long list of driver distractions is simply a written-verbal list of “please select one of the following options” to end one’s days. Using handheld devices, texting, applying makeup, running yellow or red lights, not stopping for pedestrians in crosswalks etc. are so common that thousands of drivers and innocent crash victims are hospitalized each year. Abbotsford is supposedly a religious based community. Yet one can guarantee the driver in the vehicle beside you, paused at a red traffic light, head bent reverently low, is not engaged in silent prayer. Odds predict you perhaps texting one final farewell message before crossing over in a sudden and violent crash somewhere down

the road: Coroner’s report – distracted driving. Fifteen minutes of ‘motoriety’ on the six o’clock news, years of grief for those left behind. Another non-listed distraction and pet peeve is the brain-dead practice of motoring around town with a dog jumping excitedly on the lap of a driver. As a supporter of the SPCA, my sympathy lies entirely with the injured animal should an accident occur. My initial response would be to give the dog CPR first and let the owner wait his or her turn. Another almost epidemic practice is to operate a vehicle in pre-dawn and after dusk without any tail lights displayed. With various climate conditions experienced on the West Coast, thousands of these

Good on Gerda for taking a stand Editor, the Times:

Thanks are due to Gerda Peachey for her stalwart defence of scientific evidence and common sense (‘Cash comes from those who work hard’, Times, Feb. 7). Her valiant defense of the best interests of drug users is self-evident, as is the defence of the establishment appointees of the Fraser Health Authority for their jobs. Let’s face it – no addicts, no need of the Fraser Health Authority’s socalled “experts” in dealing with addicts. “Just keep ‘em hooked, and we’re

But, just suggest that we deny a hit to an addict, and we’re accused of not being “informed” or “compassionate” to those who are looking for another “hit”. Thank you again, Gerda Peachey, for your real concern for the well-being of unfortunate addicts, and to those of us who entirely agree with you but, like you, are denied a voice and ridiculed for our genuine loving concern for them.

Dual Visions of photo art & abstract

JEAN KONDA-WITTE JKonda-Witte@abbotsfordtimes.com

D

ual Visions is a new Kariton Gallery show featuring photo art and abstract acrylic paintings by local artists Phil Dyer and Nasser Ghaderi. Dyer’s contribution includes digitally-manipulated images of water drops, all of which were taken at his kitchen counter using coloured art paper under and behind a water dish. The rest of his collection consists of two series: the ‘dual wave series’, depicting the flowing lines of a wave as it breaks on shore, and the ‘umbrella series’, featuring images that are indicative of water but do not actually include it. “It’s more art than documentary photography,” said Dyer, admitting he’s trying to be more creative. “When you’re deliberately creating something that has been manipulated, it’s an expression of the artist.” Photography has been Dyer’s hobby for more than 25 years. He embraced digital photography in 2005, which allowed him to expand his creativity. Over the years, he’s developed a minimalist approach whereby he often isolates a small part of a scene to capture what is important to him. Exploratory artist Ghaderi creates his abstract paintings by throwing, splashing, drizzling, dripping and swirling acrylic paint on canvas,

abstaining from using conventional tools and techniques. He escapes point of view by focusing on process and experimentation instead of plotting a final product. Ghaderi says his art is twofold. “I [do] not suggest any ideas, any judgment. It allows the viewer to make up their own story,” he said. “This way of thinking focuses on the process; try to not have a plot, you just go with it, just do it until it

finds its own form. “That is the only way to achieve the first part.” His paintings invite viewers to actively create their own meanings, turning the viewer into the

creator. “I provide enough freedom for you to have you own say.” Ghaderi has been booked for more than 30 exhibits since 2012, the majority being solo shows. He was one of 75 artists chosen out of 3,000 whose work will exhib-

My Chevy was far beyond clean! If I had “before” and “after” pictures to compare the two conditions of the Chevy, it would be obvious that the professionals in the Detailing Department spent a considerable amount of time and effort. Their workmanship is truly remarkable. ~ M.D.

We had our Tahoe in for service today. Ryan Siemens made sure everything requested was taken care of including calling us with a time that the vehicle was available for pick up. Always a pleasure to work with Ryan. Just to let you know, we love the car! We don’t drive very much so I don’t think we need any work done yet - you are a very nice salesman Leland! ~ Maja B.

MSS wrestlers from left, Shalaya Valenzuela, Satvir Bhullar, Jaedyn Reisig and Alexia Seal all came home with gold medals from the Port Alberni Invitational Wrestling Tournament.

The little team that could JEAN KONDA-WITTE

JKonda-Witte@abbotsfordtimes.com

F

ielding a fledgling wrestling team in its second year, Mission Secondary took seven of its wrestlers to the 30th annual Port Alberni Invitational tournament Feb. 7-9 and came home with four gold medals. “I was ecstatic when our two schoolgirls earned a plaque for third place, with two gold medals,” said coach Jared Derksen. Two Grade 8 girls, Alexia Seal and Shalaya Valenzuela, had dominant performances, both winning gold and a plaque for third place team in the schoolgirl division. Grade 10 wrestler Satvir Bhullar earned a pin in his gold medal match while first year Grade 7 wrestler Jaedyn Reisig pinned all of his opponents, and earned a gold medal in a pool of eight wrestlers. “Individually, I’m very

proud of what the wrestlers have accomplished,” added the coach. Derksen started the wrestling program as MSS about five years ago, but then moved it to elementary schools for three years before coming back to Mission Secondary last year. “Many teams, like Port Alberni’s or Abbotsford’s have 30-50 wrestlers.We can’t compete with teams for overall points, because it’s based on sheer numbers,” said Derksen, who’s hoping to build the Roadrunners program in the years to come. The entire Mission Secondary team did outstanding, with a win-loss record of over 70 per cent he added. One disappointment was for Grade 9 first-year wrestler Meghan Belhumeur, who did not make it to the final round – she broke her collarbone in her second match, after winning her first match with a second-round pin.

BMX Supercross cancelled Fans of BMX racing who were thrilled with last year’s Supercross World Cup at Abbotsford’s Exhibition Park will be disappointed as Cycling BC has cancelled the event which was scheduled for Sept. 6-7, 2013. “Cycling BC has forged ahead on the national and international scene in BMX over the past few years but with recent structural changes and with substantial financial difficulties, we are unable to support a BMX Supercross World Cup at this time,” Cycling BC said in a statement. The financial state, including fewer racers than expected and fewer spectators than hoped, along with recent changes at the board contributed to the decision by Cycling BC. “It’s unfortunate to not have Abbotsford on the 2013 calendar,” Johan Lindstrom, CEO of Global SX Events said in a release. “Cycling BC delivered a great event in 2012 and all participants and teams had an excellent time,” said Lindstrom. “It was certainly not the biggest race on the World Cup circuit, but the event had a lot of potential to become a classic. So hopefully we can return to B.C. in the near future.”

A22 ❘ FAITH ❘ THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2013 THE TIMES

We don’t always like God’s whales

I

have been around long enough to know that God does meet all my needs, but how He does it can be way different than what I want or even like. William Gurnall said, “Like Jonah’s whale; God sent it to ferry him to shore – underwater, with the prophet in its belly. “Even the thing we think has come to destroy us may be the very messenger God has dispatched to bring us to dry land.” Many times in this life we can be misguided in our search for solutions as we flounder, like Jonah, in deep water of trials. If we are drowning in money woes, more money may not be the solution any more than a man desiring a new wife because he doesn’t like the one he has already. Sometimes, God sends a whale. I remember the time when I met one of my whales, a cantankerous organic chemistry professor who was about a foot shorter than me. When I handed in a somewhat sloppy lab assignment, he gave it back to me with a large red zero. I told him, “Hey, I should get at least half

Safe to say He still works in mysterious ways

marks for getting it half right.” He looked at me across the top of his spectacles and said, “Son, your future boss is not going to give you half-marks. You will need to be correct and complete in your assignments and duties.” And so, on that day, I left the land of half-marks and participant badges and with sweat and tears, I heeded the professors’ advice to improve my work to his standards. God had sent me my whale and it was exactly what I needed before graduation and plunging into a career in the food industry. I have since had plenty of other whales. Now some of life’s trials are inexplicable and we won’t understand them till we see our Lord Jesus face to face. Other trials are mistakenly blamed on Satan, like the laughable church lady on Saturday Night Live. (Yet the Bible instructs us that the devil is alive and well, but I think we easily attribute too much to his doing.)

February 17 - 23, 2013

Aries March 21 - April 19: Your revels now are ended, Aries. Let go of social notions and prepare for some “sweet solitude” – a good rest, valuable contemplation and plans fill the weeks ahead. (Especially, good plans for career or dealing with authorities, which have been difficult these few years.) Sunday afternoon offers muddled directions: relax. Do errands, paperwork Monday, but avoid temper, “roughness.” Tuesday morn brings easy success, and a sweet friend. Head for home midweek, as your quietude deepens. Romantic notions and inventive ideas, creative expression, flow Friday eve and Saturday.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Mysteries end; four weeks of understanding begin. Avoid starting new projects or relationships now to March 17. The month ahead holds far travel, legal affairs, higher education, publishing, love and cultural affairs. These are great if they come from the past (e.g., an old flame, or a trip across the ocean to revisit your old neighbourhood). But new ventures in these areas are likely to fail in the long run. (For instance, this would be a disastrous time to begin a lawsuit; it would “never end.”) Rest, lie low early week. Your energy and charm surge Wednesday on. Write someone.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Start nothing new now to March 17, Libra. You’ll be busy enough with ongoing chores – and a possible big one returning from the past. (E.g., those porch stairs finally caved in; or I forgot that tax return.) The only new thing worth starting this week is a long-range intellectual application, Tuesday morning before 10:45 PST. (E.g., submitting a school or passport application, or buying travel tickets – all for events to occur after March 17. DO NOT begin a lawsuit, essay, novel, etc.) Sunday to Tuesday are mellow, loving. Be ambitious midweek. Friday eve, Saturday: social joy.

Taurus April 20-May 20: Pressures ease. Higher-ups have favoured you all month, but now they ease up on the “performance” pedal. The weeks ahead feature friends, social joys, entertainment and optimism. You’ll be happy! A former friend, flirty person, light romance, or social circle could return. A former wish or goal could beckon again, too. But soon, huge new friendships loom also. Careful Sunday: appearances are deceptive. Chase money anyway, realistically, this eve through Tuesday morning. Errands, casual friends, communications and paperwork fill Wednesday/Thursday. Home, relax, Friday eve, Saturday.

Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The weeks past brought open, honest relationships and opportunities. Monday begins a month that steers these “open” contacts into deeper, “hidden” zones. E.g., an attraction might become intimate; a business opportunity now demands commitment and funding. However, until March 17, DON’T start new ventures or relationships, especially in finances and lust. Instead, work with ongoing situations, or reprise opportunities from the past. (DON’T try to rewrite a text, score or film script.) Happiness visits (sort of) Sunday to Tuesday. Lie low midweek. You shine, Friday afternoon, Saturday!

Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Start nothing new before March 17, Scorpio – with the exception of a great investment, research project or intimate lure Tuesday morning. (Watch the “start nothing” period this day.) If someone new attracts you Tuesday morning, it can be loving and intimate very quickly. In addition, next week onward, an old flame might return – he/she offers emotional buoyancy and sexual depth, but make sure the “original problem” doesn’t still exist. Careful Sunday, appearances deceive. Wednesday/Thursday are mellow, understanding: love approaches. Be ambitious Friday eve, Saturday afternoon.

Gemini May 21-June 20: A peaceful month ends Monday; a month of ambition, tests, status concerns and prestige relations begins. Start NO new projects or relationships before March 17. Meantime, this week will slow like a car; then next week into mid-March will bring former ambitions, career contacts, bosses and roles/duties to the fore. Some of these could be lucky – but anything new will not be. Act accordingly. Despite this temporary retracing, your career is entering a huge new zone for the decade ahead. You will finally “reach” your true calling. Your energy and effectiveness soar Sunday-Tuesday.

Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: A major slowdown looms, February 23 to March 17, but we can feel the drag even earlier. So avoid starting new projects or relationships all week. A former link is almost certain to appear – could be an ex, former lover, friend, business associate, etc. Either this person represents a viable path forward for you, or there is unfinished business between you that should be wrapped up/resolved. The entire month ahead features relationships above all else – and opportunities, “renewed” horizons, relocation potentials. In these, reject the brand new. Happiness, Wednesday/Thursday!

Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The month ahead accents home, children, security, nutrition, real estate, and retirement. Though a slow-down and “backwardation” occurs in many small areas now to March 17, advising against new starts, the major themes of your life actually leap forward during the weeks ahead. An end is a beginning. Trust the feeling that your life is opening to big new horizons – it is, and the more you seek the company of others, the bigger those horizons. A former domestic or career role might return – that’s fine. Express love Tuesday morning. Good sex, finances and research Thursday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The weeks ahead bring many details, errands, light chores, communications, paperwork, travel and casual contacts. Be alert in these: double-check instructions, reports and words/grammar. Avoid big new starts until March 17 onward. You’ll be busy, but the stakes are not big, so find that “relaxed busy” level. A former friend or acquaintance might return. Tackle chores Sunday to Tuesday – a Tuesday morning task can boost your career. (Start well before 10:30 a.m. PST.) Agreement and opposition occur midweek: true love’s possible. Sex, finances, secrets Friday eve, Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The weeks ahead feature money, but don’t start new money ventures – or any new projects – before March 17. Stick with the ongoing, or situations that return from the past. You’ll collect old debts and/or face paying bills you’d forgotten about. A former sensual link could return (next week onward). So could former clients and income sources. Buy NOTHING new before mid-March (except of course gas, groceries, etc.) – lemons abound. Romance is deceptive Sunday eve, irksome Monday, and sweet Tuesday morning. Tackle chores mid-week. Evaporating opportunities Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your energy, charm, and clout rise strongly over the few weeks ahead. I didn’t include “effective,” as partners, co-operators, opportunities and plans will tend to go backwards, perhaps due to indecision. So DON’T start new projects or relationships before March 17 – stick with the ongoing, or reprise past situations. A former mate, and/or a former neighbourhood, could draw you. Take a pleasant walk down memory lane. Be domestic Sunday to Tuesday. Mid-week brings romance, creative urges, pleasure and a winning streak: you fascinate someone. Tackle jobs Friday eve, Saturday.
