Burnaby girl assaulted Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter
A 15-year-old girl was sexually assaulted in her apartment building near Metrotown SkyTrain station on Tuesday at about 3 p.m. She was walking home with a friend when a man followed them into their apartment building, waiting until the victim was alone to grab her in what police described as a sexual manner. The man then fled. The girl was not physically hurt by the incident. Burnaby RCMP have issued a description of the suspect. He is approximately 20 years old, possibly Asian and has facial acne. He is between 5-9 and 5-11. He has a slim to medium build. He did not speak
with an accent. The man had a crooked front left tooth. He wore black clothing and worn-out white sneakers with the letter N on the sides. Burnaby RCMP, in a press release, is reminding parents to teach their children how to handle an encounter with a stranger. Children should be aware of their surroundings, report suspicious activity or people to the police, have a plan on what to do, and trust their instincts about a situation. They should not worry about being polite. If you have information about this suspect or crime, please contact Const. Alvin Ng at 604-294-7922. email@example.com

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR FHA shortchanging seniors’ care
Re: Seniors’ care homes get more funding, Burnaby NOW, June 19 We read with interest the article about seven Burnaby seniors’ care homes getting additional funding from Fraser Health. It is ironic to read about getting additional funding as the New Vista Care Home has not yet received final confirmation on our budget from Fraser Health. In a meeting with Fraser Health on June 10, representatives of New Vista received a “funding model template” that included a proposed funding line item indicating “net additional dollars” at

$71,007 for the 2010/11 year. In reality, the proposed funding from Fraser Health for New Vista represents about a $200,000 shortfall for the real cost of our operations. In addition, Fraser Health’s proposal for funding care for our residents at New Vista does not address inflation, salary increases for licensed practical nurses, nor does it address the costs to provide longterm disability benefits for our employees, as we are contractually obligated to pay. In fact, the long-term disability costs for our employees at New Vista have increased significantly from $200,000 in 2003, to over $800,000 in 2010, an amount which Fraser Health has only partially funded. The cumulative shortfall year over

Bring democracy back
Re: Burnaby MLA targeted on HST ‘hit list,’ Burnaby NOW, June 26 Liberal MLA Richard Lee still maintains that even though the majority of his constituents are against the HST he will support the tax. Following this logic, what is the point of voting at all? Every B.C. Liberal MLA, with the possible exception of recently resigned Minister Lekstrom, is essentially saying that democracy is too important to be left to citizens. The B.C. Liberals’ contempt for public opinion boils down an elitist belief that they know what is good for the public even if they have to jam it down our throats. I think Canadians are tired of topdown government enacting their agenda
no matter what the public thinks. I think it is time we brought democracy back to Canadian politics, and a good way to start is to listen to the people. If we are wrong about the HST so be it. At least we should have the choice, rather than an elitist government telling us that what is good for business is good for B.C. Murray Martin, Burnaby
MLA not representing voters Dear Editor:
Re: Burnaby North MLA targeted on HST ‘hit list’, Burnaby NOW, June 26. Low-income families will see an average tax reduction of $411, but there is no mention of the expected increase in overall purchases for the same family. Mr. Lee’s position of doing the right thing for the province while ignoring the will of a significant percentage of his constituency is a prime example of everything that is wrong with this current government. Mr. Lee was not elected to make decisions based on his personal opinion, he was elected to represent the voters of North Burnaby. I voted for a representative in parliament, not a self-appointed parent. Do the right thing, Mr. Lee, and respect the will of your voters. You seem to forget who is paying your wages. Michael Luchuk, Burnaby
HST: Good for B.C’s future continued from page 6
reduce the future debt we would pass on to our children and support increased funding to both health care and education. We asked ourselves if the HST would strengthen the province’s economy as we move through the global economic downturn. Would the HST allow our industries and small businesses to better compete internationally and within Canada? Would it create jobs? Would it give business the ability to pay higher wages and lower prices? Study after study confirmed the HST would do all those things. World-renowned economist Jack Mintz from the University of Calgary found that moving to an HST will create more than 110,000 jobs, attract more than $11 billion in new investment, increase wages and lower prices. Those working in small
business, forestry, mining, energy, agriculture, retail, transportation and construction will realize immediate and direct benefits. For the rest of us, the stronger economy will mean more job opportunities, stronger communities and more revenues to support critical public services. The HST, combined with our other tax reductions, will soon make British Columbia one of the most attractive places to invest and do business anywhere in the world. I know many people feel like they are paying more and getting less. That’s why over the last nine years our government has acted to leave more of people’s hard-earned wages in their pockets. We’ve cut income taxes by at least 37 per cent for individuals since 2001, and British Columbians now pay the lowest personal income taxes in the coun-
try if you earn less than $118,000. The after-tax size of an average British Columbian’s paycheque today is considerably higher than it was in 2001. An individual earning $50,000 a year pays $2,012 less in provincial income taxes today. That’s more than $2,000 for individuals to save or spend as they choose. Cutting taxes has helped our economy stay strong enough that we’ve been able to make record investments into health care and education. The HST has not been good short-term politics. But in the end, everyone has to decide whether they are going to do what is right or what is easy. I believe the HST is the right thing for our province’s economy and for our children’s future. Change today will make us stronger tomorrow. Gordon Campbell is the premier of B.C.

It’s official – you’re paying the HST Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter
All through the province, plenty of people were stirring on the eve of the HST. Protests of the harmonized sales tax continued right up until the 11th
hour. On Wednesday at 8:30 a.m., the day before the new tax replacing the goods and services and the provincial sales taxes was brought in, politicians and protesters gathered at Kingsway and Willingdon Avenue to speak out against the tax. Raj Chouhan, NDP MLA for
Burnaby-Edmonds, was on hand, as were many other New Democrats, including B.C. NDP leader Carole James. The protest was a last effort to express discontent before the new tax came in, Chouhan said.

HST: ‘People are not forgiving’ continued from page 9
“People are still angry and expressing disgust and betrayal (about the tax),” he said. “People are not forgiving.” The campaign against the HST has been going on for about a year, and still people are upset, he added. The HST combined the GST with a seven per cent provincial tax rate, setting the combined tax rate at 12 per cent. The provincial sales tax was eliminated in advance of the new tax.

The HST applies to most goods and services previously subject only to the five per cent GST. The amount of political action to stop the tax, including an anti-HST petition that had been signed by at least 15 per cent of voters in each B.C. riding by the time it was submitted on June 30, has been unprecedented in this province, Chouhan said. “We have never seen anything like this in the past.”

Exhibition highlights Fertig
Children sing for hope C
Lovers of art still have a chance to see the work of George Fertig in an ongoing exhibition at Burnaby Art Gallery. The exhibition runs until July 11. A press release describes Fertig as “an artist’s artist whose rare oil paintings are esteemed by those who delight in the inner realities of life.” Born in Alberta in 1915, he started out in photography at age 20 and started oil painting at age 24. He lived in Vancouver and Burnaby from 1941 until his death in 1983, and, through the 1950s and ’60s, became known as the “Moon Man” when he painted large and powerful archetypal images. His later oils were small still lives describes as “meditations on eternity, unity and light.” His paintings now are found almost exclusively in private collections, so the chance to catch this exhibition – chronicling his work from the early days to the recent past – is notable. The gallery is open Tuesdays to Fridays from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. See www.burnabyartgallery.ca or call 604-297-4422 for more.

hildren from Uganda and Kenya are bringing their Journey of Hope to Burnaby on Sunday night. The African Children’s Choir is in the midst of its 35th tour through North America and will be performing at the Cliff Avenue United Church on July 4 at 7 p.m. The concert is free, but a free-will offering will be taken. Donations will go towards providing education, care and emergency relief for more than 7,000 children in Uganda, Kenya, South Africa, Rwanda, Nigeria and Ghana. The choir’s relief and development projects provide education, food, shelter and medical assistance to orphans and other children in Africa, according to the group’s website. The concert is a combination of children’s and gospel songs, and traditional African songs and dances. The choir has been raising awareness and funds for African children for 25 years, according to the church’s promotional flyer. The church is at 1600 Cliff Ave.
New take on a classic
The Young People’s Opera Society of B.C has reworked a classic fairy tale into a modern cautionary tale. Hansel and Grrretel is an upto-date version of Engelbert Humperdinck’s classic opera Hänsel und Gretel. Two street kids – Hansel, played by Julia Fox of Burnaby, and Grrretel, Dodi Barillec of Surrey – flee parental abuse and are preyed upon in Anytown by a drug dealer, who replaces the witch in the original story. The mother is played by Jennifer Moran, who is also from Burnaby, as are the technical director, Stephen Rusch, and set and prop designer Clayton Flagg. The production will be staged at the Surrey Arts Centre until July 4. Tickets start at $10 and are available from the box office at 604-5015566. For more information, go to www.youngpeoplesopera.com.

Summer theatre aimed at kids Janaya Fuller-Evans
The heroic quest for colour and imagination is the primary story in this year’s Burnaby Summer Theatre production, Chroma. Chroma, a world of colour, is under attack by The Shade, who consumes all the colours and keeps them in his well of darkness. Superheroes Dasos and Neela must free the colours, and learn something important in the process. The play was created in the same manner as the comedy TV show Curb Your Enthusiasm, according to director Shawn Sorenson, with a synopsis written and the performers creating each scene on their feet using improvisational techniques. The small cast – all students of Langara College’s Studio 58 theatre program – has created a piece that deals with classic
themes such as good versus evil, as well as gender discrepancies and violence in classic superhero story lines. Sorensen has his early childhood education licence and has worked in daycare settings in the past. So he had a unique understanding of creating a work specifically for children. When working in child care, Sorensen noticed that superhero play was discouraged because violence was unacceptable in that setting, but many of his friends at Studio 58 discussed the superheroes of their childhood with enthusiasm. So he decided to create a play that would allow children to connect with superheroes, without the gratuitous violence, he says. “We took a respectful approach,” Sorensen says. “I wanted to bring superhero play back in a way that was controlled, safe and silly.”
Photo contributed/burnaby now
Colour bind: Colourful superheroes Dasos and Neela team up to battle The Shade in the new production Chroma. To that end, any mild violence in the piece is more Three Stooges than Batman. The cast specifically decided against hits to the face and went with comedic fighting scenarios
instead. “I wanted it to be edge of your seat exciting,” Sorensen explained, adding he wanted the performance to be safe for Theatre Page 14
A14 • Saturday, July 3, 2010 • Burnaby NOW
Theatre: Play runs through summer Neela gets equal play in the piece as Dasos. Noronha, Rose, and producer Ky Scott are all going into their fourth year in the acting program at Studio 58. Freeland is graduating this year, and Sorensen is in the production program. Studio 58 has been working with the Burnaby Arts Council to run the theatre for about 20 years, according to Scott. This is her first time producing, as she is primarily an actor, Scott says. She does have minor roles in the production but couldn’t take on much as the job of producer is quite intensive. “I’ve never had this level of responsibility before,” she says.

young children while pushing boundaries around the taboo of superhero violence. “I’m attracted to people (in the industry) who challenge the art form,” he says. The fight scenes utilize the choreography experience of leading man Dustin Freeland, who plays Dasos, one of two superheroes battling The Shade, played by Alex Rose, to return colour to the world of Chroma. “I’m the buffoon,” Freeland says, laughing. All three primary characters, including leading woman Neela, played by Adele Noronha, were based on a one-word description. Dasos is courage, The Shade is power, and Neela is wisdom. The cast focused on making Neela as equal to Dasos as possible, to correct the frequent portrayal of women as weaker entities in superhero or action stories. Noronha grew up playing superhero games with her brothers, she says, and always had to sit behind a rock, as either someone to be rescued or a villain to be vanquished. She worked with Sorensen to ensure that

MOTORING Distracted while driving? Is B.C.’s ban on cellphone use and driving working? How many B.C. drivers made a resolution this past New Year’s to comply with the new distracted driving law? And how many are sticking to their plans? Six months after the introduction of the new law prohibiting B.C. drivers from using a handheld phone to talk or text while driving, the B.C. Automobile Association (BCAA) is conducting an online survey to find out how drivers have changed their ways – or not. BCAA’s distracted driving survey is open to all B.C. drivers and is available on the homepage at www.bcaa.com. The five-minute anonymous survey asks drivers how the new law has affected their driving behaviour, what they observe other drivers doing, how effectively the
new law is being publicized and enforced, and what kinds of distracting behaviours – besides cellphone use – concern them most. “There appeared to be strong compliance right after the introduction of the new cellphone restrictions, but it’s not uncommon today to see or hear of people sneaking a call or glancing at a text while driving,” says BCAA spokesperson Trace Acres. “The results of our distracted driving survey will be shared with government and law enforcement agencies to help them understand the impact of the law and adjust their publicity and enforcement strategies, if necessary.” In an April 2010 member survey, BCAA members ranked “road safety” as their number 1 driving concern. The issue of driver distractions was BCAA members’ third most pressing safety concern, behind speeding and intersection infractions. In a survey
specifically about cellphone use conducted by BCAA during the summer of 2009, 90 per cent of the 7,300 respondents were in support of cellphone restrictions. BCAA is the largest organization of its kind in B.C., with more than 100 years of experience and gross annual sales of nearly $400 million from its membership, insurance and travel businesses. A BCAA membership can be found in the wallets of 790,000 British Columbians and in one in four B.C. households. For the past two years, BCAA has received the highest score in Canada for home insurance customer satisfaction in a J.D. Power and Associates study. To learn more about BCAA’s products, services and member advocacy, visit www.bcaa.com. For more information on the BCAA Traffic Safety Foundation visit www. tsf-bcaa.com. email@example.com

Getting his chance to play Tom Berridge sports editor
Burnaby’s Malcolm Freeman is in some elite company. The Moscrop Panthers high school football player was one of just three running backs named to B.C.’s provincial team for the 2010 Football Canada Cup at Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia July 10 to 17. Freeman, who played with Moscrop in the Tier II varsity division, joins AAA varsity provincial offensive player of the year Stephen Spagnuolo of Burnaby on the 40-player B.C. roster. Spagnuolo led the province, rushing for 2,537 yards and 32 touchdowns with the Notre Dame Jugglers last year. Also earning a spot in the B.C. backfield was AA Mt. Douglas running back Terrell Davis. At times, Freeman had felt invisible playing in the often overlooked Tier II league that does not keep up-to-date statistics. “I felt like no one ever gave us a look,” he said. “I considered myself good, but I never thought of myself in that level.” The 6-0, 200-pound running back had a seasonbest 300-plus yards rushing and four touchdowns in a victory over Westsyde last season. But he made the best of
an opportunity at the recent Senior Bowl, earning MVP running back honours at the Spring Break camp. Freeman is hoping to get a season of junior football with the Big Kahuna Rams before playing next season at the collegiate level in the United States. “He’s a hard-working kid and has started doing what is necessary. He’s gotten a bit faster and leaner. His biggest concern is getting into a (junior) program where he can play,” Moscrop head coach Craig Bymoen said. Two other Jugglers made the elite provincial squad, wide receiver Anthony Belmonte and provincial team offensive lineman Roberto Perizzolo. AAA linebacker Casey Chin of New Westminster was also named to the provincial Canada Cup team. The Canada Cup will pit the top under-18 football players from B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario East and West, Quebec and Nova Scotia in a week-long showcase that culminates in a championship final on July 17. The national competition began as a four-team under-19 event with B.C. Alberta, Manitoba and Quebec taking part in Calgary in 1993. B.C. has not taken part at the Canada Cup since 2000 in Winnipeg.

Burnaby South Rebels guard Ater Degal and post Nick Irvine were recently named to the under-17 boys’ provincial team by Basketbal B.C. The boys will ready themselves for the Candian championships to be held in Winnipeg Aug. 2 through 7, with three upcoming competitions including the Western Canada Showcase in Langley July 12 to 14. Guard Bafeh Sheriff of Burnaby Mountain made the u-15 boys’ red provincial team. In girls’ basketball, forward Lexie Der of St. Thomas More Collegiate and guard Alisha Roberts of York House were both selected to the u-17 provincial team. The girls’ team will play three tournaments in the United States in preparation for the national championships in Toronto in August. New Westminster Secondary School guard Ariana Sider was named to the girls’ u-16 team. Guard Pavneet Brar of South and centre Kamila Wojciechowski of STM were also named to the u15 red squad.
Soccer Canadians add depth to premier side Tom Berridge sports editor
The BGSC Canadian FC are loading up for a second season in the premier division of the Metro Women’s Soccer League. The Canadians received a commitment from six new players for the upcoming season, including graduated Simon Fraser University netminder Cassie Newbrook of New Westminster. Joining Newbrook are midfielders Lauren Lachlan and Amy Thorogood, central defender Jessica Fleming and strikers Sarah Boulton and Kristen Vanderpauw. Newbrook was the Clan’s starting goalkeeper for her four seasons with the varsity team. She was named to NAIA Association of Independent Institutions all-
conference first team last season. Newbrook started in 15 of 17 games last season for the varsity Clan, posting a stingy 0.82 goals against average in the independent conference. The four-year Clan starter will share the goalkeeping duties with Ariel Anderson, who grew into one of the top keepers in the women’s Metro league. “Adding another all-star keeper in Cassie gives us amazing depth to our goalkeeper situation,” said Burnaby coach Matt Holbrook. “Having both keepers push each other and train together will be a great thing for our team.” The acquisition of Newbrook, Lachlan, Boulton and Fleming brings the total number of former SFU varsity players to 10.

As one of the youngest averaged-aged teams in the Metro Women’s premier league, Holbrook expects the Canadians to be a provincial contender for many seasons to come. “These additions give us some great depth and balance in the squad,” added Holbrook. “These new player are probably the step we needed.

MAUREEN KAREN DOUGLAS (Harder)
June 26, 1942 – June 24, 2010 It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our mother Maureen in her 67th year. Born in Camrose, Alberta, Maureen moved to Burnaby, BC where she attended Edmonds Elementary School, Burnaby South & Central High Schools, before graduating from the Essondale School of Psychiatric Nursing. She later went on to have a successful career as a realtor in the New Westminster, Burnaby and Coquitlam areas. Maureen enjoyed an active lifestyle, as well as gardening, and treasured her time with family and friends. Maureen’s greatest joy was being grandma to her seven grandchildren, who knew her as their “Momee”. She will be remembered by all those who knew her as a hardworking, loving lady, with a wonderful smile. Maureen will be missed by her sisters, Cheryl and Judy (Richard), her three children, Christina (Randy), Angela (Paul) and Aaron (Kim), and her seven grandchildren – Brittany, Kyle, Emily, Benjamin, Makena, Summer, and Lilah. She was predeceased by her mother, Mildred, father, George, and step-mother, Grace. A heartfelt thank you is given to the staff at Buchanan Lodge, who showed Maureen great love and compassion, and to her wonderful care companions, Vikki and Christina, who brightened Maureen’s days. A celebration of life to honor Maureen will be held on Friday, July 16 at 10:30 a.m. at Buchanan Lodge, 409 Blair Avenue, New Westminster. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Maureen’s memory to The Salvation Army (www.salvtionarmy.ca).

Summer Job Search Myths – Part 2
This article continues from last week’s, when I began debunking summer job search myths. If you are unemployed or looking for new or better opportunities, read the myths below before you decide to take the summer off! Gregg Taylor MYTH #4: Even if a job opening exists in a company, hiring managers are away or won’t have time to meet with you. Some hiring managers will be working – and hiring – during the summer and you may benefit from less job competition if you are also available. MYTH #5: You have a better chance if you wait until the fall. Many companies won’t want to wait that long. For example, if they need staff in place for the upcoming fall season, they will often hire now. Also, many companies hire extra staff to cover staff holidays. Even if you are only hired for part-time or temporary hours, it’s a great opportunity to get your foot in the door and demonstrate your abilities while you fill in! That could make you the best hiring option the next time a full-time position becomes available. So take time off if you really need a good rest this summer. However, if you are currently unemployed or need a job change you shouldn’t let the myths of the summer job search stop you! Do you want to discover your career passion this summer? Call 604-681-2774 and ask about the Transitions Program, our government funded (no fee) three-week career exploration program available to anyone who is unemployed or under employed and eligible to work in Canada.

July 4 - 10
Cancer June 21-July 22: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness ride high! Pursue career, prestige or business objectives Sunday/Monday. Monday night through Wednesday, happiness, optimism, popularity, social delights and ﬂirtations visit! You might meet a “destined friend” this week or next, who could become a mate. Avoid illusion wafted by a suave, slinky or glamorous person Thursday/Friday – a talkative, nervous, or “precise” type is true blue, honest and helpful. A signiﬁcant sexual or ﬁnancial decision might be involved. Saturday has an early problem, then success, energy and great money/career ideas!
Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Be ambitious – work with a new project, idea or impulse, rather than anything that emerged over the last two weeks. (A project or goal that existed before August last year is also viable – a major interruption has hindered this goal. This obstacle is slowly ending, though it might linger to March 2011.) Talk about a career goal: a Gemini, an Aries understand. This week’s exciting, sexual, whispers of love – but remain cautious about new romances, relationships, as “marriage” is not part (or a good part) of any new link. Invest Tuesday. Bright friend, bright love Friday!
Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Relationships remain most important. Some are approaching the end of a phase, particularly those involving large money or intimacy – there will be a new phase soon. It’s like the dip in a wave. During this dip the best you’ll get is deception. So let those two matters (sex, money) take a breather – next Monday (July 12) onward, they’ll surge again, luckily! Sunday/Monday emphasize home, family, endings, peace. Monday night through Wednesday triggers romance, beauty, pleasure, creative urges. Tackle chores Thursday/Friday – success very likely. Lie low Saturday morning; seek others this p.m.
Taurus April 20-May 20: Soon – next week – you’re going to enjoy some really solid advance in love, with creative or pleasure projects, and with relationships generally. So in these speciﬁc areas, be content to maintain a holding pattern this week. In a broader view, communication, travel and friendly relationships progress in a good way this week – in fact, in one case, this might be your last chance for a while to contact someone. Do so. Lie low, rest Sunday/Monday. Your energy and charisma surge nicely Monday night through Wednesday. Chase money, or study an inventive investment, Thursday/Friday.
Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Continue to lie low, observe, plan, replenish your energy reserves. Deal with government agencies, charities, institutions and your own head ofﬁce. Sunday/Monday bring a mellow, understanding mood. Be ambitious Monday night to Wednesday — the only thing you have to avoid is a smattering of illusion or wishful thinking Wednesday p.m. (Anxiety and wishing are two sides of the same urge.) The same advice holds, more so, Thursday, when you might dream unrealistically about someone, and they about you. Otherwise, Thursday/Friday are happy, upbeat! Retreat Saturday, especially this morning.
Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: This week contains opposition and opportunity. Sunday/Monday are for chores, drudgery – get it over with. Exciting meetings arrive Monday night to Wednesday: be diplomatic, eager, refuse to ﬁght. Illusion (or anxiety) about the ﬁrmness of the ground you stand on is your only Achilles heel mid-week, especially Wednesday and Thursday. If you’re realistic about this, you can land a deal, grab an opportunity, even trip the love fantastic! Thursday/Friday steer you into depths (ﬁnances, sex, health, etc.): a Gemini or Virgo proves a great “guide” here. Saturday, wait for p.m. happiness.
Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Work, health and drudgery – these come every July, Aquarius, so just plug away. Sunday/Monday feature details, paperwork, errands, travel, communications and friendly meetings. Take a rest, or tackle home-based chores Tuesday/Wednesday. Tuesday’s ideas or urges involving investments, debt reduction, intimacy or lifestyle changes are quite workable. Romance beckons Thursday/Friday – so do pleasure, beauty, creative and gambling urges. But in these, deception lurks Thursday (you could be the deceiver) – Friday, clarity and a talkative person bring brightness! Caution Saturday morn.
Gemini May 21-June 20: Chase money, buy/sell, increase your earnings, seek a pay raise, etc. One money project – and one relationship – is winding down. (Not a big deal.) An atmosphere of friction continues in the home. If you live alone, watch your telephone voice at home. Continue to study good and workable plans/ wishes involving real estate, construction, gardening, or similar matters. Next week through early August luck enters, perhaps bringing the opportunity to step toward those goals. However, DON’T move into a new home, nor buy a family home, before July 30: you would experience much friction there.
Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your popularity remains high – but you might almost defeat it by frowning, being attracted to the secretive, the sexual over the friendly. Best approach: dig deeply and deﬁnitely into a ﬁnancial step, a lifestyle-changing project, or a bid for intimacy; but step out of this, quickly and ﬁrmly, to greet your friends, make friends, enjoy entertainment, etc. For three weeks, keep these two good, lucky sides of your life separate. Pursue the “deep” side Sunday/Monday, Tuesday night, and Saturday p.m. Sweet wisdom, gentle love Tuesday/Wednesday. Be ambitious, social, Thursday/Friday.
Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Sunday/Monday are romantic – but friction or ambition might make the dream better than the reality. Still, enjoy yourself. Tackle chores Monday night to Wednesday. It’s a good time to look for work if you’re unemployed. Exciting meetings and partnership opportunities could arise Thursday/Friday. A showy but elusive person could steer you wrong, while a precise or talkative individual will befriend you. Be careful Saturday morning: everything’s at the wrong angle. This p.m., the main trend of this week succeeds: mystery, ﬁnances, investigation, intimacy, commitment – make one!
Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Love, romance, beauty, pleasure, vacation, charming kids, creative and gambling urges all flow through you now! Married or single, you’re dealing with someone June/July (hopefully your mate!) who’s feisty, determined, who exudes sexual energy.This link will move from talkative to affectionate, nervous to sweet, soon. In business, a money-earning partnership is possible. In any case, be diplomatic but seductive. Illusion haunts your work sphere, so buy no machinery, and no employment “promises.” Chase money Sunday/ Monday. Home, rest, Thursday/Friday. Everything in the first sentence July 10! email@example.com • Reading: 416-686-5014
