EDITOR’S NOTE

Turning the blahs away

More outrage needed here’s an irony in knowing that public broadcasting matters to every Canadian — and especially every journalist — no matter how often you tune in, says CBC star Jo-Ann Roberts; it holds governments accountable, keeps citiDANIELLE zens informed and challenges POPE private media organizations to news@ an industry standard. mondaymag.com But while a growing number of young Canadians are giving up radios for iPods and TVs for MacBooks, the CBC has remained part of the country’s national identity for over 75 years. And despite annihilating funding cuts, that “public good� is exactly what Roberts, host of local CBC Radio show All Points West, will be talking about as UVic’s 2013 Harvey S. Southam guest lecturer in journalism and non-fiction. Roberts, with 35 years experience in radio, print and television, is UVic’s sixth Southam Lecturer and, in addition to teaching an advanced journalism class this semester, Roberts will be giving her open talk “Public broadcasting for the public good� on Wed., Jan. 30, 7:30pm at UVic’s Human Social Development building (Room 240). The event is free, and open to the community. “When you consider that 83 per cent of the media is owned privately, and mainly by three big corporations, that necessitates the need for public broadcasting,� Roberts says. “I worry not that government will get rid of the CBC, but that it will simply underfund it. That makes the CBC just what most governments would rather have — a lapdog, instead of a watchdog.� Last spring, the federal government announced severe cuts to CBC’s funding, equalling a loss of $115 million over three years. Though the cuts have devastated the corporation, Roberts says CBC is still setting a standard, for better or worse — as the CBC shrinks, so, in turn, do private media outlets. “We need to see Canadians take more responsibility for what they want,� she says. “Governments will listen, but you have to make yourselves heard ... sometimes we do need a little more outrage.�

CALLING ALL PASSENGERS Attention Victorians and West Shorians: only one day left to have your say in a passenger ferry that may be coming your way. The WestShore Chamber of Commerce (WSCC) is asking commuters to give feedback on a proposal that is examining the feasibility of a passenger commuter ferry connecting the West Shore with Victoria Harbour. While the WSCC began looking at the possibility last fall, the group is hoping to hear from the public by Jan. 25 through a brief survey. “This passenger ferry could really impact the lives of people who commute back and forth between the West Shore and downtown Victoria,� says Dan Spinner, WSCC CEO. “It is crucial to hear from people who might use the ferry as it could cut down their commute times, as well as reduce the amount of traffic congestion and vehicle emissions that occur in the ‘Colwood Crawl’.�

DANIELLE POPE

Jo-Ann Roberts would like to see Canadians “a little more outraged� about the need for public broadcasting.

WHO DOESN’T LOVE EATING OUT? Victorians still have another month to wait until our city kicks off the dining frenzy better known as “Dine Around & Stay in Town� from Feb. 21 to March 10. But for those impatient foodies willing to hop a ferry, Vancouver kicked off its sister festival this last weekend with “Dine Out Vancouver� tempting Islanders over from Jan. 18 to Feb. 3. The festival, now in its 11th year, is a city-wide celebration of eating out — approximately 240 restaurants and 24 hotels will partake in the event this year, with 68,000 patrons visiting Vancouver’s showcase in 2012. “This is a very local movement, but it’s also an attrative getaway for people living on the Island — we’re really not that far away,� says Lucas Pavan, festival coordinator for Dine Out Vancouver. “This is a great chance to experience the quality of influences in such a multicultural, culinary city.� While Victoria’s growing event will turn 10 this year and promises to offer 60 participating downtown restaurants and 21 hotels, Vancouver’s version still holds the title of Canada’s largest restaurant festival, and allows diners to sample menus all for a prix fixe cost (price points are $18, $28 and $38 per person). Dine Out also features special hotel room rates and packages, plus a full menu of unique foodthemed events, seminars and activities. Learn more or snag tickets in advance at dineoutvancouver.com.

t’s about this time of year when one’s New Year resolutions tend to have worn so thin that breakage, if it hasn’t already happened, is a foregone conclusion. The mornings are dark, the evenings are dark, and our motivation remains snuggled in bed with the cats (who were smart enough to secure a free and comfortable ride through life) while our physical bodies are trudging off to work. GRANT And, believe it or not, there is actually a scientiďŹ c McKENZIE explanation for this. Well, kinda. Cliff Arnal, a former professor at Cardiff University in the UK, has developed editor@ a formula that calculates the saddest and most depressmondaymag.com ing day of the year. In 2013, that day was Monday, Jan. 21. So if you’re reading this, congratulations, you survived. According to Arnal, Monday was the perfect storm of everything rotten in post-Christmas blahs: weather, motivation, debt worry, etc. To get us out of this funk, Monday talked to author Gabrielle Bernstein (who is a guest speaker at the upcoming Victoria Yoga Conference) about manifesting your own miracles. You can read her interview on Page 7.

Co-starring Ray Liotta, Richard Jenkins, and James Gandolfini.

Reilly provides the voice for a video-game villain who tires of being a bad guy and sets out on a quest that throws an entire video arcade into chaos. This occasionally-inspired animation lark includes the voices of Sarah Silverman and Jane Lynch. ★★★ STORIES WE TELL -(Sun., Jan. 27: 3:00, 7:00, 9:10 & Mon.-Thurs., Jan. 28-31: 7:00, 9:10) The latest from actor-turned-director Sarah Polley is an intriguing and much-lauded documentary that explores the repercussions throughout her family when Polley discovers that her "dad" is not her biological father. Polley's effort to uncover the truth is documented via extensive interviews with family members and friends. I'm not sure this is much more than an intellectualized home movie but it is rarely less than fascinating.

STREET SMARTS What is your definition of a miracle?

KIERAN REPORT

Myths plague raw log export dilemma n their ongoing effort to differentiate Premier Christy Clark, the jobs diva, from NDP leader Adrian Dix, the jobs killer, the Liberals have primed the pump for BRIAN a renewed coastal KIERAN resource battle over bkieran@ raw log exports. mondaymag.com The launch pad for this made-forelections gambit was this month’s Truck Loggers Association bun toss where Forests Minister Steve Thomson announced increased harvesting activity on the coast through the auction of an additional 500,000 cubic metres by BC Timber Sales. Always keen to straddle the fence with both ears on the ground and aware that most coastal voters are upset with the level of raw log exports, the government also announced a 20-per-cent fee increase for raw logs based on the difference between the domestic and export prices of timber. The Liberals launched the review of the province’s log export policies in July 2011. In the previous year more logs had been shipped to China from B.C.

I

than in all of the preceding two decades. However, when you burrow down into this complex issue it becomes apparent that Thomson’s pre-election fixes barely rise to the level of tinkering. Like many coastal residents, I have fallen prey to the myth that there is a direct correlation between the volume of logs exported and sawmill jobs lost. This is a myth abetted by the New Democrats, who will significantly curtail log exports if elected, and by their union brothers and sisters and their ENGO partners (environmental non-governmental organizations). As complex as this issue is, I have seen glimmers of clarity in a 2006 government study conducted by former Forestry Deputy Minister Don Wright and Cobble Hill-based forester Bill Dumont. For reasons that do not escape me this report had been archived while the Liberals embarked on the new review that set the stage for this month’s cosmetics. Simply put, the Wright/Dumont report calls for bold sectoral reforms that challenge the appetite of the Liberals — and the NDP for that matter — to embrace arduous policy reform. In the study “Generating More Wealth from British Columbia’s Timber: A Review of British Columbia’s Log Export Policies” the two experts stated: “Log exports are primarily a symptom, not a cause, of

Anything that seems unattainable, but turns out to be so.

the economic problems facing the coast industry. The pressure to export logs and the level of log exports, have historically risen and fallen with the fortunes of the coast forest industry. “The distinction between log exports as a symptom rather than a cause is an important one. A mistaken diagnosis of log exports as the cause of the industry’s problems would lead to prescriptions that are unhelpful, if not outright damaging.” The key issue in the Coast Forest Region is the economics of processing hemlock and balsam. A very large share of that inventory is uneconomic to harvest under current conditions, the experts said. “Unless some way is found to make the hemlock and balsam resource more valuable, it is inevitable that the Annual Allowable Cut will be reduced significantly and harvesting activity in large parts of the coast and northern transition zone will cease.” Wright and Dumont called for the reestablishment of a globally competitive coast manufacturing sector that includes establishing a level playing field with competitors in the U.S. Pacific Northwest. Had the government embarked on such an ambitious strategy in December 2006 when the study was submitted, we might not be having such an acrimonious and flawed debate today about raw logs. Who am I kidding? M

CITY WATCHDOG

IAN MCCALL, Victoria

It’s time to exorcise our street demons or most of us, walking the streets of The Capital is far from a politically significant experience. However, woven into our city’s fabric and reflected on its streets is a history that is anything but neutral. We walk down Begbie Street without thinking of Matthew Begbie’s penchant for sentencing indigenous people to hang, or his role SIMON in the smallpox epidemic that decimated NATTRASS peoples across the province.

Taking a lead role in the campaign is Kevin Paul, a member of the WSÃ, NEC nation who has dedicated much of his life to studying the language and history attached to this region. For Paul, new street signs are not the end of this story. “I think there’s a need to start digging into the original history of this place, and these things give that opportunity.” For Paul, learning our history is one of the first steps toward healing the divide between indigenous and settler communities. “Entire lives have begun and ended in other people’s territories without ever knowing the history of the place. History didn’t start when Europeans landed here, it started a long time before that — it’s still going on for me.” We remember in painful detail the colonist’s side of history. We remember the names of crew members on the HMS Sutlej, its tours of the Pacific, the details of its construction; we forget the hundreds of innocent people who died at the hands of its crew.

Miracle Minded SPEAKER CHALLENGES VICTORIANS TO CLEANSE THEIR FEAR

n 2005, Gabrielle Bernstein reached her turning point. She was running a public relations business out of New York City — hardly a bottom-end gig — but she had bottomed out in her life. For all her “successes” in work and relationships, she was unhappy, unfulfilled and didn’t know what she wasn’t doing right. “I realized there had to be a better way to perceive things,” Bernstein tells Monday. “And that’s when I really began a very steadfast spiritual practice … that’s when I made a shift.” Bernstein is now a New York Times bestselling author, world speaker and has been hailed as the new spiritual role model for 30-somethings. She also believes in miracles. “Miracles are simply these tiny shifts in perception, when we take fear and see it DANIELLE POPE from a loving perspective,” she says. “They’re nothing news@mondaymag.com major, they’re just subtle adjustments, but they change your whole life.” Bernstein will be bringing her brand of enlightenment to the kickoff of the first-ever Victoria Yoga Conference on Feb. 1, 6pm, at the Victoria Conference Centre. The event was forged this year to feed a growing hunger in the community for greater authenticity and meaning — two things Bernstein has become an expert on in the last eight years of her practice. And through the simple act of “willingness,” Bernstein says anyone can find the same. “It’s a lot more simple than we make it seem,” Bernstein said recently on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday. “Just be willing, and books will literally fall off the shelf in front of you. The second you say ‘I am willing,’ what you need will be given.” The trick then, Bernstein says, is to pay attention to the assignments — don’t pretend like nothing happened when that book fell off the shelf — and, show up for the assignment. “Sometimes when we are waking up to spirituality, that’s when it seems like everything is falling apart. And those are the moments we work. Those are not the moments when we drink, or go back to the addiction. Those are the moments we get to work,” she told Oprah. “Everything comes up so it can be healed.” In her own effort to heal and help others do the same, Bernstein has just released her newest book, May Cause Miracles: a 40-day guidebook of subtle shifts for radical change and unlimited happiness. The book encourages readers to make tiny moves that will confront their fears and investigate the root causes in order to adjust all aspects of life: relationships, body image, finance and more. Bernstein’s spunky voice is targeting her core audience — “young professional women working long hours in cubicles for small compensation, suffering from a lack of life/work balance and searching for something more” — yet the book has hit the New York Times bestseller list for two weeks straight, and

I

is ranked the number-two bestseller at Amazon.ca in the categories of self-help and religion and spirituality. While Bernstein makes inner peace look almost too easy, she’s quick to disagree. “I’ll be straight up with you: choosing loving thoughts over fearful delusions was a tough transition at first,” she writes in the preface of her newest book. “It seems easy — who doesn’t want to trade in fear for love? But giving up fear is like giving up sugar: they’re both sneaky ingredients that hide out in almost everything.” The 33-year-old New York native wasn’t always so sublime. Bernstein struggled with overeating and anxiety through her early years, then morphed into a “party girl” who realized at 25 that “fabulous shoes and the club scene were not enough.” Bernstein devoted herself to any spiritual book she could get her hands on, and gave up her publicist job for one of life coaching and public speaking. Soon after, she penned her first two bestselling books, Spirit Junkie and Add More ~Ing to Your Life. Next, Bernstein says she is aiming to become a Kundalini yoga teacher, since yoga is what she considers to be one of the best forms of self-care. “I once was not a very happy girl. I was looking for happiness in all the wrong places. I was afraid to wake up in the morning, I was afraid to start another day. Luckily for me, I had an inner voice that continuously said there has to be a better way. Unconsciously, I was asking for a miracle.” Bernstein’s miracle came, little by little. Her dedication helped her understand and slowly let go of her addictions to romance, drugs, work and food and start replacing them with forgiveness rather than resentment. In her newest 40-day guidebook, she speaks of the importance of restructuring the brain — while 40 days has mythical and biblical significance, science has shown 40 days is also the time it takes the brain to form neural pathways: one of the reasons habits are so challenging to break. For a real “fear-cleanse,” Bernstein used her own experience to break each of the six weeks into digestible daily assignments of spiritual progress. “Fear is what holds us back from everything. It keeps us small and weak, and it takes away our power,” she says. “Though fear is not something to get rid of either. We just have to learn how to experience it differently. For a lot of people, fear runs the show. But if we learn how to look at that fear with love and compassion, we take our control back.” How can people know when they are in need of a fear cleanse? Bernstein says when you come to a point in your life when you realize: “this isn’t working.”

PROVIDED

Gabrielle Bernstein believes miracles are attainable for all.

“We get in our own way, and so often it’s our belief systems that hold us back: ‘How dare I ask for that raise,’ or ‘How dare I think I’m as good as that person.’ Sometimes, we’re afraid to be great ... But however we got there, these beliefs run so deep that we don’t always know we are thinking them,” she says. Bernstein is a big promoter of the idea of “unlimited happiness.” While she says many people believe you can’t be happy all the time, she, personally, disagrees. “Being happy doesn’t mean you don’t have bad experiences — it means you know how to handle those experiences with grace, and you intuitively know how to work through anything,” she says. “Yes, you can have what it is you desire. The key is to change your mindset. When we change how we think about something, things begin to change.” M

AND HOW ABOUT DESSERT WITH A LITTLE MATCHA KICK?

DRINKUP By Pam Grant

S

o, it’s been a few weeks since those New Year’s resolutions, the most popular of which is typically a solemn vow to get in better shape. I’m betting that is a far more successful idea in Australia where it’s summer on Jan. 1. Who wants to go for a walk in this weather, let alone make a commitment to do it every single day? MATCHA - GREEN TEA Salads with steamed fish? You must be joking. This is the season for which comfort food was invented. Still, many of us overindulge in any number of gustatory and alcoholic diversions in the month of December, making January as good a time as any to start undoing the damage this causes. One simple thing you can do is buy a bag of matcha tea and add it to your daily routine. Available in specialty tea shops, Asian grocery stores and the occasional deli, Matcha is powdered green tea the colour of pistachios. Originally imported from China by Zen monks and used in formal tea ceremonies in Japan, it is currently being guzzled by North Americans as well. Why? The antioxidant properties are significant. Oxidation is a normal chemical process for the human body, but when it is disrupted by things like stress, tobacco, alcohol, lack of sleep and more, the development of free radicals (the molecular equivalent of junk mail) results in the potential to damage every cell in your body. This can lead to the onset of things you don’t want like diabetes and coronary disease. Antioxidants are believed to significantly slow or prevent the oxidative process and may also improve your immune system, thereby lowering your risk of infection and cancer. Anti-aging benefits, elevated moods, increased energy and metabolism, lower LDL cholesterol, lower blood pressure and more have also been attributed to Matcha. No wonder the Zen priest and Matcha fan, Eisai, began his revered tea book with the sentence: “Tea is the ultimate mental and medical remedy and has the ability to make one’s life more full and complete.” Though a diet rich in whole grains, nuts, fresh fruits and vegetables can supply all the antioxidants your body needs, we can all use a little boost from time to time. You’ve probably heard that green tea is better for you than coffee, but that doesn’t mean you have to switch. Just add an espresso-sized cup to your daily routine — a 1/4 tsp of this bright green powder is the equivalent of more than a dozen cups of green tea, which is handy if you don’t care for the taste. Plus, it has 70 times the anti-oxidants found in oranges, nine times the beta-carotene that spinach offers, vitamins A,B, C, E and K and various minerals. You can cook with it too — ice cream, cakes, mochi and more — but for optimum benefits, stick with the beverage. M

TWO WORLDS: INDIGENOUS MEDIA AND PERFORMANCE FESTIVAL kookum Sound System promises to take you on a unique, danceable journey through First Nations culture this weekend, making its Victoria debut with two shows at two local venues. The four-member audio-visual collective will be in Victoria to take part in Two Worlds: Indigenous Media and Performance Festival at the Royal BC Museum Jan. 26 and 27. The festival celebrates the meeting of tradition and technology through the works of First Nations artists. Fronted by singer Csetkwe (Meaghan Fortier), Skookum Sound System has a team of DJs/producers (Deano [Dean Hunt] and Impossible Nothing), accompanied by video artist Amphibian 14 (Braken Hanuse Corlett) presenting a “Skookum� light show that projects images of beautiful First Nations artwork on the walls of their performance spaces. Skookum Sound System was birthed when DJ Deano was asked to spin at the inaugural Vancouver Indigenous Media Arts Festival. He approached the other members suggesting they appear together. That was almost two years ago and the System is enthusiastically looking forward to a schedule that will see it perform around B.C. this year and lead workshops with youth on how to create and record electronic music. Working with youth is something Dean never thought of doing until they were asked. He says he is looking forward to the opportunity and hopes to inspire First Nations youth in a positive way. If you listen carefully, you may recognize the sounds of nature expertly dropped on a track — a raven, an eagle or even crickets add to the finished product. It is when creating music that DJ Deano feels the influence of his

ancestors the most — almost as if they are giving him a nod of approval. His DJ mixes are a blend of contemporary mainstream music complementing traditional aboriginal voices and drums. These soundscapes, he says, can start off with “a little trip hop, peppered with some big bass then amped up to a dance sound.� Chris O’Connor, the schools and family team leader at the Royal BC Museum, sees the festival as an opportunity to “highlight the vibrancy of The First Peoples Gallery at the RBCM and of contemporary First Nations culture in B.C. The First Peoples Gallery is a large component of the RBCM and this is part of a new and exciting approach to that gallery space.� The festival kicks off Fri., Jan. 25 at Logan’s Pub (1821 Cook) with performances by actor and bluesman Gary Farmer (New Mexico), Skookum Sound System, and accoustic rock with Jasper (Six Nations, Ont.). 9pm. $12 at the door. Throughout the afternoon of Sat., Jan. 26, MediaNet and the Royal BC Museum team up to present a film festival featuring seven video works by Canadian Indigenous artists screening in the First Nations Gallery from 1-5pm (free with admission). The main event features dance, spoken word, music and video projection with Victoria’s poet laureate Janet Marie Rogers, Peter Morin, Bracken Hanuse Corlett (Skookum Sound System) and Robyn Kruger. $20.15 (members), $22.40 (non-members) at royalbcmuseum.bc.ca.

IMAX pulls on the hip waders FILM FEST EXPLORES THE GREAT LAKES, SHARKS AND MORE By Robert Moyes arts@mondaymag.com

he Great Lakes and their 10,000 miles of coastline comprise 20 per cent of the world’s fresh water and are one of the Earth’s most important ecosystems. And with so much natural and human history attached to this unique area it was inevitable that IMAX would pull on its hip waders and go exploring. The resulting Mysteries of the Great Lakes combines spectacular wildlife and underwater photography with CGI geological reenactments to tell a fascinating tale 160 million years in the making. The main storyline focuses on a marine biologist who has devoted the last 20 years to studying the sturgeon. Once the dominant species in the Lakes, these massive, dinosaur-era fish are now nearly extinct and the biologist is part of an elaborate program to save them. That effort is movingly contrasted with archival footage that details our sad history of polluting these immense inland seas with shocking quantities of industrial poisons. Alongside affecting portraits of nesting eagles, and rare footage of the woodland caribou who populated the remote Slate Islands by swimming there a century ago, Mysteries also shows human interaction with the Great Lakes. Aside from providing drinking water for millions of people, the Lakes generate immense amounts of electricity and also serve as an invaluable commercial shipping conduit (referred to by some mariners as “Highway H2O”). Narrated by Gordon Pinsent and featuring music by Gordon Lightfoot, Mysteries is a fascinating and touching reminder of nature’s greatness . . . and its vulnerability.

ARNOLD SAID HE’D BE BACK ecently terminated as both governor and husband, Arnold Schwarzenegger is back in front of the cameras doing what he does best: grinding his vowels with a teutonic growl and blowing holes in bad guys. Welcome to The Last Stand, a western-style shootem-up where Arnie plays Ray Owens, the past-his-prime sheriff of Summerton Junction, a pokey town on the Arizona-Mexico border. Although he used to be an elite drug-squad cop in L.A., for years Ray has done nothing more than hand out parking tickets. Suddenly, he finds himself in the path of Gabriel Cortez, the murderous boss of a Mexican drug cartel who has just escaped custody in Las Vegas and is barreling towards Summerton at 200 miles an hour with plans to hightail it across the border to freedom. It’s a classic setup and the movie shuttles smoothly among several subplots, including the federal agents trying to recapture Cortez, a gang of heavily-armed hirelings sneaking

R

around the outskirts of Summerton and building an “assault bridge” that will help Cortez breach the narrow canyon that marks the border, and the small crew of inexperienced deputies huddled behind Ray and worrying how nasty it will get. Although Arnie takes a stand, the movie itself doesn’t: the tone shifts like Jell-O in an earthquake, with the somber acknowledgement of the death of a young deputy quickly followed by Yee-ha! antics and jokey violence. Even the direction by Korean action stylist Jee-woon Kim wobbles, ranging from slick and inventive car chases to badly orchestrated gun battles. And the scene where the FBI boss (Forest Whitaker) finally meets the sheriff he so patronizingly underestimated is a fizzle. Still, gruff old Arnie, nicely aged and weathered, has enough gravitas to make this a ride worth taking. M

HOROSCOPE > JANUARY 27 - FEBRUARY 2, 2013

Life is like a 10 speed bicycle – most of us have gears we never use

A

ll Signs: People who know a little about astrology are often afraid of the energy of Mars. Yes, it is aggressive but, essentially, Mars is just energy. Mars is like a hammer that can be used to hurt someone or build a house, just energy. Think of how much work a person can do when Mars is along on the job. This week Mars moves into Pisces for the first time since March 2011. (Almost two years.) This means that for the next six weeks, we will all feel a supercharged energy in different parts of our lives. Read on to find out where you will get your smack of high-voltage. As Charles Schultz once said, “Life is like a 10 speed bicycle – most of us have gears we never use.”

about everything (including sex). It will also make you much more assertive about claiming your rights, especially regarding shared property, inheritances and anything you own jointly with others. When you consider that this energy hasn’t been available to you for about two years, you might get a better idea of how strong it’s going to be. This is also why conflicts with others about shared property are likely. It’s also why you might be considerably friendlier with your main squeeze. (“Tonight I’ll be the maid.”)

GEORGIA NICOLS

ARIES MARCH 21-APRIL 19 It’s a popular time hanging out with creative types, as well as younger people. And during this time, fiery Mars is “hiding” in your chart. Verrrry interesting. Mars is your ruler and Mars is aggressive, even militant. If Mars is hiding in your chart, it’s stirring up something within you that is subconscious. Whatever you do now might be undermined by strange behaviour patterns that come out of nowhere. (“Whaaaat?”) Actually, this is an opportunity to observe those little self-defeating acts that plague us all. You don’t have to confront others; you have to confront yourself. “On guard! Who goes there?” (“It is I, your subconscious, the trickster!”) TAURUS APRIL 20-MAY 20 Although you’re high viz., fiery Mars now compels you to define your goals and decide how to go after them. It’s forward thinking, i.e. what do you do today for the dream you want to achieve tomorrow? It urges you to embrace teamwork, but this will be tricky. Why? Mars is strongly associated with your ego, which means you want the credit for everything you do. But this is not always easy when you lend your efforts to a group. Teamwork is about getting things done together and not analyzing how much each person is helping. Physical activities with others, especially competitive, will be personally gratifying. In the next six weeks, you will best achieve your goals by working with others. GEMINI MAY 21-JUNE 20 It’s been two years since Mars was at the top of your chart. Feels good, doesn’t it? Mars likes to ride high because Mars is an ambitious planet, which is why it arouses your ambition. You will easily take the initiative and work independently to achieve what you want. If you are coming on strong with parents, bosses and authority figures, they’ll feel threatened. (This could also create conflict with co-workers.) Just do your own thing unless something important is at stake. One of the things you want to do is travel and explore opportunities in publishing, the media, medicine, the law and higher education because you want to expand your world. CANCER JUNE 21-JULY 22 In the next six weeks, fiery Mars will stimulate your desire for creative, intellectual work. You’ll love discussing profound subjects. You might meet a teacher who influences you or you might embrace a new way of looking at life. You might also defend your beliefs. (Be careful about coercing others into agreeing with you.) A fun expression of this Mars energy will be increased travel and a chance to learn something new and different. You might also pursue opportunities in publishing, the media, medicine and the law. If you have a chance to study a language or ethnic cooking or learn about a foreign country, you’ll love it.

SCORPIO OCT 23-NOV 21 In the next six weeks, things couldn’t be better if you play hockey. Fiery Mars will rev your sense of competition to make you want to win, win, win! If you don’t have skates in your closet, fear not because Mars will also make you want to have fun, fun, fun! The next six weeks are not about self-denial. Oh no. They’re about romance, vacations, fun social diversions, sports events, playful times with children, the arts, the theatre and amusing pleasure. The only downside is it could promote conflict with children. Try to be lighter when dealing with your kids because after all, you’re having all this fun anyway. Right?

SAGITTARIUS NOV 22- DEC 21 The fiery energy of Mars will virtually (and perhaps literally) sweep your home with increased activity and chaos. The likelihood of renovations and redecorating projects will be high because you’re on a mission. You want to transform your digs into something exciting, fresh and original. Some of this whirlwind activity could be due to visiting guests. Therefore, stock the fridge with good food and drink for the next two months. Regretfully, some of this energy could translate into conflict with family members. Well, you can either be part of the problem or part of the solution. What’s it going to be? CAPRICORN DEC 22-JAN 19 In the next few months, all your communications with others will be unusually assertive, direct and persuasive. You will mean what you say and say what you mean. (And others will have no doubt about it.) Naturally, this bodes well if you need to be an aggressive communicator. If you act, teach, market, sell or perhaps train animals, this is wonderful! But do keep in mind that you might be coming on a bit strong with everyday contacts and friends because you easily identify with your beliefs now. (Which makes it easy to go off half-cocked.) To put it mildly, you have no trouble defending your ideas. Just be gentle with the little people.

AQUARIUS JAN 20-FEB 18 Mars rules aggression, assertiveness and your muscles. It is also strongly linked with your ego. In the next two months, it will be highlighting and juicing everything to do with finances for your sign. We’re talking how you earn your money, how you spend your money and the activity of your cash flow in general. Certainly, you will work very hard to earn money, and you will work equally as hard to spend it. You will also identify strongly with whatever you own and will talk up the advantages of your particular possessions, convincing others that they should own something similar. Or if someone wants to borrow what you own, you won’t want to part with it. Get the picture? PISCES FEB 19-MARCH 20 Well, it’s all about you, dear Pisces, because Mars is now in your sign for the first time since March 2011, super-energizing you for the next two months. (Of course, you can use this infusion of energy.) To begin with, it’s an indicator there will be more activity in your life. As you work harder and make more contacts around you it generates an accelerated pace with everything. Because your physical level of energy is high, not only will you accomplish more than usual, you will assert yourself with others. Oops. Yes, if you’re insensitive, problems will ensue. But who could be more sensitive than a Pisces? That’s why there is probably no cause for concern. Consider the next few months a chance to show the world what you can really do..

LEO JULY 23-AUG 22 Mars is in a relatively hidden part of your chart (not completely hidden) where it will stir up your sexual energy and make you feel very passionate

VIRGO AUG 23-SEPT 22 When Mars moves through the 12 signs, it can be easy or tough. I’m not going to sugarcoat it: This placement of Mars is challenging because it’s opposite your sign. So what happens when a fiery warrior confronts you head on? Exactly. Your guard is up. You are distrustful and wary. Hey, you’re not exactly laid back with smiles and open arms. So yes, you can expect confrontations with friends and partners but know this — in large measure, you are generating the friction because you feel impatient with others. So if you can rein in your value judgments, and act kindly to others, and be patient and tolerant, this is not such a big deal. (Forewarned is forearmed.)

LIBRA SEPT. 23-OCT. 22 This particular visit of Mars for the next six weeks will help you because it revs up your energy to work. Suddenly, you’re gung ho to get organized at work and at home. You’ll want everything in its place and you’ll love developing organizational systems – catalogues, cupboards, or reorganizing your kitchen or your computer. You will definitely take pride in your work. And Lord knows you’ve got the energy! The only downside is you won’t be a team player. Mars always wants credit for what it does because Mars is associated with one’s ego. Best to work alone if you can. Focus on vigorous physical exercise. (Perfect time for this.) It will help you vent any pent-up energy. “Hut-two-three-four!”
