Phunk Phenomenon promotes positives of Hip-Hop dance

cores of family and friends, known as “Ella’s Army,” recently attended the dedication ceremony of a playground that was built in memory of Ella O’Donnell, a 10-year-old student at South Memorial Elementary School who passed away late last year from a brain tumor. After losing Ella, students and faculty responded by constructing the Ella Jade O’Donnell South Memorial-Passos Avante Playground, complete with elephants and ladybugs, two of Ella’s favorite things.

Divided into age-appropriate sections, the playground is designed for children in preschool through fifth grade. Joanne Pantapas, a member of South Memorial’s Playground Committee, said that in addition to all-new equipment, the playground features a memorial patio and a bronze statue of a ballerina. Pantapas credited Mayor Edward Bettencourt with garnering $70,000 from the Community Preservation Act to help fund the $150,000 project. “The mayor supported us

or the past 15 years, Reia Briggs-Connor and her husband Rick have been teaching students as young as three years old the art of hip hop dance. In addition to dancing hiphop since she was three years old herself, Briggs-Connor also spent three years as a cheerlead-

er for the New England Patriots. In 2002, she and Rick opened their first Phunk Phenomenon studio at 1760 Revere Beach Parkway in Everett. The opening of their Peabody studio, located at 201 Andover St., followed in 2012. Some of the classes offered include Baby Hip Hop and Breaking, Advanced Breaking and

Tricking, Ballet and Contemporary Dance as well as Salsa. Briggs-Connor said that on Aug. 5, she and six groups of dancers between the ages of six and 30 will be travelling to Phoenix for 11 days for this year’s International Hip-Hop Competition.

Daniel Pimenta, a Peabody firefighter of 27 years, was out for a bike ride last Sunday afternoon when he was struck head-on by a Jeep on Hale Street in Beverly. Pimenta, 53, who was off-duty at the time, was rushed seven miles to Beverly Hospital where he was later pronounced dead, according to the Beverly Fire Department. Beverly Police reported that

the driver of the Jeep was Paul Fiore, 69, of Beverly. “It is with heavy hearts and deepest sadness that we announce the passing of active duty Firefighter Dan Pimenta who was struck while riding his bike in Beverly,” said representatives from Peabody Firefighters Local 925 in a written statement. “Dan was an avid rider and champion supporter for the National MS Society.

Breakaway sets new tone for local music scene Musical vet Brian Maes anchors open mic Music Hall

Breakaway owner Joe Crowley (center) is shown with Boston rock legend Barry Goudreau and talented musician Brian Maes.

By James Mitchell


or the last couple of decades, the local music scene has literally hit a wall. It just doesn’t exist unless you want to hit a club in the Financial District to see nationally ranked bands you’ve never heard of opening for an international act on Commonwealth Avenue to 350 people. For the Baby Boomers and Gen-Xers who’ve grown up and moved to the North Shore and miss the bygone days of The Channel, The Rat, or Bunratty’s, their time has finally made its comeback at Breakaway on Newbury Street in Danvers. The former Tavern on the Green just south of Rte. 62 features a restaurant, function rooms and a 350-person capacity Music Hall with a brand-new sound system, air-conditioning and a very large parking lot to boot. Breakaway owner Joe Crowley has pulled out all the stops, including adding a serious music schedule with open mic on Tues-

day nights hosted by one of the region’s most talented musicians, Brian Maes. Maes hasn’t been resting on his musical laurels as of late, taking the lead singer duties for Barry Goudreau’s (yes, that Barry Goudreau of the mega-70’s arena rock band Boston) new band, Engine Room. Coming off the band’s CD release night at the Lynn Auditorium last month, Maes and Crowley sat down with the Advocate for an interview prior to the band’s special show to a packed Music Hall at Breakaway late last month. “It’s the first record Barry has done since the [Brad] Delp-Goudreau record 10 years ago,” said Maes. “It’s exciting since it’s the first time he released an original record in quite some time.” Maes and Goudreau have spent the last few years playing with car czar Ernie Boch, Jr.’s band, Ernie & The Automatics; and prior to that, with RTZ (Return To Zero) featuring Brad Delp with bassist Tim Archibald; and before that, with Orion The Hunter touring as the opening act for Aerosmith. Maes would later tour with former J. Geils lead singer Peter Wolf in his band, The House Party Five. Maes and Goudreau would join another former Boston bandmate, Sib Habashian, on Ernie & The Automatics until the band broke up in 2011. Goudreau called his former front man and told him he was sick of sitting idle and wanted Maes and Archibald on his new record. The pair cowrote the music and lyrics for the self-titled album Engine Room. “It felt so good – the creative flow was amazing – we wrote the album in one night,” said Maes. “Barry really gets to stretch out musically and brings back that sound that people expect from him; that finesse, that touch that was heard on the first two Boston albums.”

Fortune, a local band that rocked the Boston area in the 80’s and 90’s and now packs Breakaway, covers many of Boston’s hits with perfection that Goudreau took notice of on a recent stop at Breakaway. Goudreau took the stage, lending his famous guitar chops much to the delight of Boston fans in the audience. “Playing with someone who at one time was in the biggest band in the world is cool,” said Maes. “To put things into perspective; this guy sold out the [Houston] Astrodome.” Crowley said he can’t believe the response to bands like Fortune, Country music fave Jimmy Allen, dance cover bands like Wildfire and – coming on Sat., August 12 – local punk legends The Slushpuppies. In the first three months of Breakaway’s opening, 50’s crooner Ricky Nelson’s twin sons appeared after a local gig with Ernie Boch, and the place went crazy, offering Crowley a good sign that his new music setting has potential. “I love the entertainment side of this business,” said Crowley, who owns Pisa Pizza, a wellknown restaurant in Malden. His signature pizza is on the Breakaway menu. “We want to keep taking it up another notch – keep growing musically,” he said, referring to a diverse schedule of acts from former Boston area bands to national acts. Maes and Crowley formed an alliance and created an open mic night on Tuesdays allowing local musicians to play alongside some prominent musical veterans. Crowley recalled the first time he contemplated booking bands – when he discovered that some of the bands, along with their fans, were banned by the previ-

ous owners, and no new bands would call him back for months to play at the club due to its past reputation. But the musical gods would smile on Crowley when, through a friend, he met Maes and the rest is history. “We had a conversation about doing an open mic, and I promised I would commit to it and build on it,� he said. “Tuesdays are an off night but you invest in it and it’s been awesome ever since.� Crowley said Maes’s musical friendships have brought in talent from all over the region to jam on what is usually a quiet weekday night. Crowley said in another year he wants to completely change the room and keep adding to the venue. “I want to be serious about the entertainment – every week quality live music. Some of the stuff we’re doing now separates us from being just a restaurant that features bands,� he said, like young bands with a following looking for a place to jump-start their careers, be noticed and create a following. Crowley will be looking for top regional Boston favorites to play in the upcoming weeks, such as The Fools, The Stompers, or 43 Church Street, a group of talented young guns from ages 13 to 22 playing original hits around the Boston area. Given the work ethic and talent between the business owner and the musical veteran, Breakaway looks like the music scene is indeed making a comeback – just north of Boston – and that’s a good thing considering the traffic.

Governor Baker ďŹ les sales tax holiday legislation Speaker DeLeo voices opposition, cites budget shortfall OSTON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Governor Charlie Baker filed legislation on Wednesday designating August 19-20, 2017, as Massachusettsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sales tax holiday weekend to renew a tax-free weekend that generally occurs every year in the Commonwealth. The legislation would suspend the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 6.25% retail sales tax for the weekend on purchases of goods costing $2,500 or less, which will provide a welcome relief to consumers and bolster sales at businesses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The sales tax holiday gives


consumers a much needed break and supports business across the Commonwealth for our hardworking retailers,â&#x20AC;? said Governor Baker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We look forward to working with the Legislature to make this important weekend possible so the Commonwealth can shop local and make purchases tax-free.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;A tax-free weekend provides consumers with a great opportunity to support local businesses while saving money,â&#x20AC;? said Lt. Governor Karyn Polito. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This weekend will es-

pecially help out parents who are looking to make back-toschool purchases, and I look forward to working with our partners in the Legislature to see this legislation passed.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The sales tax holiday weekend suppor ts both Main Street and consumers in the Commonwealth, while also boosting economic activity in our cities and towns,â&#x20AC;? said Administration and Finance Secretary Kristen Lepore. In a statement from House Speaker Rep. Robert A. DeLeo, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes little sense for

the Governor to file this legislation now when there are several similar bills already in committee. Each year our hope is to hold a sales tax holiday to give our hardworking citizens and local businesses a boost, which is why the House votes consistently in favor of the sales tax holiday whenever revenues allow. This year, the Commonwealth experienced unpredicted revenue shortfalls and accordingly, the Legislature had to make significant budget cuts to programs and

services. In doing so, however, we protected and prioritized the most critical services and programs. We also maintained our support for local cities and towns. These choices ultimately benefit local businesses, all of which require a strong local economy and infrastructure to thrive in the long-term. In addition, we will continue to work with local retailers to support federal action on creating a level playing field for internet and brick-andmortar businesses alike. â&#x20AC;?

Peabody team notches 4th seed in North Shore League playoffs By Greg Phipps


oncluding their regular season with a close 6-5 victory over the Newburyport Nor’Easters on Sunday at Twi Field in Danvers, the Peabody Champions notched the fourth seed in the North Shore Baseball League post-season. Led by player-manager Mike Giardi, the Champions finished 15-9 and in fourth, six points behind the first-place Swampscott Sox (18-6). Peabody is set to face off against the fifth-place North Shore Phillies (14-9-1) in the opening round of the playoffs this week. In Sunday’s win over the Nor’Easters, lefty starter David Hoar struck out 11 hitters but also walked eight. He gave up just five hits and was able to battle

PHUNK PHENOMENON | FROM PAGE 1 “It’s the Olympics of hip-hop dance,” she said, adding that they have participated in the competition in prior years. Emphasizing the positive aspects of hip-hop, Briggs-Connor said Phunk Phenomenon aims to dispel the negative stigma that is often associated with this style of street dancing. Briggs-Connor also said that she and Rick established HipHop for Hope after learning that their son, Jared, who was two at the time, had been diagnosed with a rare genetic disease called Sanfilippo Syndrome. Briggs-Connor said not many people are aware of the disease and those who have heard of it assume that it is some form of Autism. “It’s worse than Autism,” she said. However, Hip-Hop for Hope continually strives to make an impact. “All the dancers are philanthropists,” said Briggs-Connor. “I decided to use what we had as a tool, we always make it a point to talk about the disease.” Briggs-Connor said anyone who walks into Phunk Phenomenon will find that it does not share many parallels with conventional dance studios. “It’s not as structured as the traditional dance studio,” she said, adding that her students are free to come to class wearing sneakers and sweatpants. “The type of dancing we do is realty energetic, it’s aggressive.”

PHUNKY FRESH: Two members of the Phunk Phenomenon dance crew are shown warming up before practice on Tuesday at the Peabody studio at 201R Andover Street.

In addition, Phunk Phenomenon is the home of Lil Phunk, the official Junior Dance Team for the Boston Celtics. Established in 2004, Lil Phunk has done performances for KISS 108, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Puma, Disney and Hasbro Toys. In addition, the Lilphunk Boyz were ranked number one in the world at the Hip-Hop International World Championships in 2009. In 2010, the Lilphunk Boyz were ranked first in the country while the Lilphunk Girlz were ranked third in the coun-

try at the Hip-Hop International Championships. For additional information, Phunk Phenomenon can be reached at The studio will also be hosting a sign-up session on Aug. 20 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for anyone who would like to be a part of Hip-Hop for Hope.

PLAYGROUND | FROM PAGE 1 with the project from start to finish,” she said. Pantapas described Ella as being “smart and sassy.” “Even as sick as she was, she was always smiling and laughing,” said Pantapas. “She came to school every day she was able, and when she could no longer go out at recess she spent her time reading to the preschoolers.” Julie Butt, who was also a member of the Playground Committee, said it is unusual to be able to build an entire playground within six months. However, she said time was of the essence, particularly for those students who will be moving on to Higgins Middle School in the fall. “The kids needed closure,” said Butt. In addition, Butt said Ella did not falter despite enduring multiple rounds of chemotherapy. “The kid never missed a day of school,” she said. In Ella’s memory, Butt said, for $100 residents can have a 4 x 8-inch brick engraved on the memorial patio. School Committee Member Thomas Rossignoll said he is impressed with the number of residents who came out for the July 26 dedication. “I for one was overjoyed by the outpouring of support for a family that has endured such a tragedy,” he said. “It goes to show the character of our great city; the entire community rallied together to do something spectacular in honor of a great kid that was taken from us way too soon.” Everett Mayor Carlo DeMaria was also on hand to support Ella’s father, Dennis, an Everett police officer. The City of Everett donated a bench for the playground. “Both the Everett and Peabody communities came together to show their love and support for a courageous young girl and her amazing family,” said School Committee Member Joseph Amico. “Ella touched a lot of people in her short time; she and her family will never be forgotten.” After discovering the tumor

in January 2016, Ella’s doctors were tasked with delivering a prognosis to Dennis and Erin O’Donnell that no parent ever wants to hear: Even with chemotherapy, it would be impossible to remove the tumor. Ella’s courageous battle against cancer ended 11 months later – one month before her 11th birthday. Bettencourt, who attended South Memorial as a child, said

the playground will hold Ella’s memory for generations to come. “As mayor, I have never felt so much Peabody Pride as I have watching our community come together following Ella’s passing,” he said in a written statement. “Together, we were inspired to build this playground – a place where children and families can enjoy being together as much as Ella enjoyed being together with her family and friends. Together we gathered to dedicate it in Ella’s loving memory.” Bettencourt also spoke about how Ella became a beacon of inspiration for those around her. “[She was] a young girl whose love of her family, friends, teachers and the South School seemed to know no bounds,” he said. “Ella’s spirit has touched so many of us in so many ways. It continues to have a remarkable impact on our community – as one needs to look no further than this beautiful new playground.”

irtually no one wants to bequeath and devise assets to their children only to subsequently find out that those hard-earned assets are later to be lost in a divorce. One way to deal with this possibility is to leave these assets to your children via a trust. A properly drafted trust is more about providing children flexibility and protection with the hope of not creating unmanageable limitations. Most people look to set up a trust that ends at some particular point in time, typically when a parent feels the child will be mature enough to handle money. In many cases, one third of the trust estate is distributed at age 25, another third at age 30 and a final third at age 35. Others prefer one half at age 30 and the remaining trust assets at age 35. Typically, upon the death of both parents, a child who is old enough and mature enough will be named a successor trustee to carry out the terms of the trust. If the child has not reached a certain age and a certain level of maturity, the parents will often appoint a third party trustee to

administer the terms of the trust and to make distributions on behalf of the child such as for health expenses, educational expenses, housing expenses, etc. Parents are often concerned that if assets are distributed directly to children upon death, any one of the children could subsequently get divorced only to see those inherited assets become part of a divorce proceeding. Leaving assets to children via a trust does have the benefit of “spendthrift” provisions designed to provide better protection to the children in the event of an ongoing divorce proceeding or prior to such a proceeding when things aren’t going so well in the marriage. Consequently, depending on the particular family and all of its dynamics, a family trust could be drafted to last longer, long after a child reaches the age of say 35. This is another reason why in some situations, naming a third party trustee might be better than naming a child as trustee. If the child has discretion to make distributions to

himself or herself upon the death of both parents, then a probate judge in a divorce proceeding might order the child to make such a distribution representing that child’s share of the parent’s estate, thereby bringing those assets into the divorce proceeding. Trusts can often be classified based upon their distribution provisions as being either support trusts or discretionary trusts. Each state varies in its interpretation of the trust terms. Discretionary trusts will tend to protect children in the event of a future divorce and the potential alimony and child support issues inherent in such a proceeding. A support trust may very well cause a problem for a child because the court may require the trustee to make a distribution from the trust in order to satisfy what the court believes to be a “support” obligation of the child, whether it be in the form of alimony or child support. Consequently, a pure “discretionary” trust would seem to offer the most protection

in these situations with a third party trustee serving as opposed to a child (particularly the child that would most likely be the one to be involved in such a proceeding based upon facts and circumstances known to the parents at the time of the trust creation). A traditional “support” trust might not always be the way to go, as including language in such a trust that states that the child’s “standard of living” is to be maintained, might somehow lead

a court to interpret that language as equating to an obligation on the part of a trustee to make a distribution to a child in order to satisfy an alimony or child support obligation. This is in contrast to simply providing income or principal to the child in order that the child have sufficient assets in order to be able to pay for his or her own food, shelter, medical expenses, etc. In our litigious society, we all have to be very concerned with lawsuits originating from any source and the more protection contained in a trust (some may argue) the better, even at the expense of limiting children’s access to the trust assets for which the parents funded into trust for their benefit. In any event, it is important to make informed decisions. What’s right for one family is not necessarily right for another family. Different circumstances, beliefs and ideologies will surely result in different choices for each family. And in the end there are never any guarantees.

e have all heard that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day” and studies suggest there is truth to that claim. Making breakfast a priority every morning is well worth the effort. And it’s simpler than you think. While we sleep the body uses its stored energy as it goes into a fasting state. Breakfast is our chance to replenish nutrients after a night’s sleep and kick start the metabolism (metabolism refers to all the chemical processes by which nutrients are used to support life). National Health And Nutrition Surveys have identified specific nutrients many of us do not get enough of: vitamin A, D, E and C, as well as folate, calcium, magnesium, fiber and potassium. A breakfast consisting of wholesome food can help us get more of these vital nutrients. Breakfast does not need to be eaten immediately after arising. The ideal time to consume breakfast is up to two hours after waking. Take five to ten minutes in the morning and enjoy a healthy breakfast and be ready for the day ahead. If time is tight, take breakfast on the road, or prepare it the night before. Pick up a healthy option low on fat, sugar and salt if eating outside the home. Choosing nutrient rich foods is key.

Tips for choosing healthy options: An adequate breakfast should be made from at least three food groups. Fruits, vegetables, grains, proteins and dairy all have their place at the breakfast table as long as they are from healthy food sources. Here are some examples.

gies, made the night before - Overnight oatmeal – combine all ingredients in a slow cooker and plug in right before going to bed and wake up to hearty warm oatmeal - Poached egg and English muffin sandwich with avocado, made the night before. A nutrient rich breakfast

Poached egg on English muffin with avocado and hearty oatmeal with apples are just two ideas of breakfast meals that can be prepared ahead to give your day a nutritious edge.

- a bowl of low sugar cereal (not more that 6 g per serving) with milk and sprinkled with dried fruits and nuts. - English muffin with chunky peanut butter - Two egg omelet with veg-

gives your body and your day a healthy edge by supplying nutrients for staying healthy and energy to get the most from your day’s work. Wake up to breakfast and energize your day.

Dear Savvy Senior, I’m worried about my 72-year-old mother who has been taking the opioid medication Vicodin for her hip and back pain for more than a year. I fear she’s becoming addicted to the drug but I don’t know what to do. Concerned Daughter Dear Concerned, The opioid epidemic is a national problem that is hitting people of all ages, including millions of older Americans. Here’s what you should know and do to help your mother.

OBITUA R IE S John E. Berra, Sr.

Finding Help for Seniors Addicted to Opioids

Of Peabody, formerly of Medford, August 1st. Be loved husband of the late Thelma P. (Church) Burke. Father of William Burke Jr. and his wife Cynthia of Sandwich, Deborah Ketola and her husband Norman of Marblehead, John J. Burke and his wife Barbara of Londonderry, NH and Karen Hill and her husband Finian of Needham. Grandfa-

ther of Caitlin, Colleen, Joshua, William, Carolina, Ryan, Kristen, Kelly, Candace, Tara, Emily and Nicole. Greatgrandfather of Joseph and Dallas. Brother of Margaret Burke Ebeneau of Little Ferry, NJ and the late Henry, Jack, Emmett and Raymond Burke, Eleanor Diaczok and Katherine Roe. William was born and raised in New Jersey. He served his country honorably as a member of the United States Navy. He moved to Medford in 1952 and became a resident of Brooksby Village in Peabody in 2004. For many years, he worked as a Letter Carrier for the United States Postal Service in Arlington. He


The Cause The main reason opioid addiction has become such a problem for people over age 50 is because over the past two decades, opioids have become a commonly prescribed (and often overprescribed) medication by doctors for all different types of pain like arthritis, cancer, neurological diseases and other illnesses that become more common in later life. Nearly one-third of all Medicare patients – almost 12 million people – were prescribed opioid painkillers by their physicians in 2015. That same year, 2.7 million Americans over age 50 abused painkillers. Taken as directed, opioids can manage pain effectively when used for a short amount of time. But with long-term use, people need to be screened and monitored because around 5 percent of those treated will develop an addiction disorder and abuse the drugs. Signs of Addiction Your mother may be addicted to opioids if she can’t stop herself from taking the drug, and her tolerance continues to go up. She may also be addicted if she keeps using opioids without her doctor’s consent, even if it’s causing her problems with her health, money, family or friends. If you think your mom’s addicted, ask her to see a doctor for an evaluation. Go to the family or prescribing physician, or find a specialist through the American Society of Addiction Medicine (see or the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry ( It’s also important to be positive and encouraging. Addiction is a medical matter, not a character flaw. Repeated use of opioids actually changes the brain. Treatments Treatment for opioid addiction is different for each person, but the main goal is to help your mom stop using the drug and avoid using it again in the future. To help her stop using the drug, her doctor can prescribe certain medicines to help relieve her withdrawal symptoms and control her cravings. These medicines include methadone (often used to treat heroin addiction), buprenorphine, and naltrexone. After detox, behavioral treatments such as individual counseling, group or family counseling, and cognitive therapy can help her learn how to manage depression, avoid the drug, deal with cravings, and heal damaged relationships. For assistance, call the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration confidential help line at 800662-4357, or see They can connect you with treatment services in your state that can help your mom. Also, if you find that your mom has a doctor who prescribes opioids in excess or without legitimate reason, you should report him or her to your state medical board, which licenses physicians.

THE PEABODY ADVOCATE - Friday, August 4, 2017

PEABODY POLICE DEPT. INCIDENTS WEDNESDAY, JULY 19 You want a McFerret with that? A resident contacted police following the discovery of a friendly and fluffy ferret near McDonald’s on Osborne Street. According to the report, the brown and white ferret appeared to be in good health and was picked up by its owner on Holten Street. Thank God, no cannibals A caller on Lynnfield Street reported three men in their 20’s rang her doorbell looking for directions. Dispatched officers located the men and discovered they were missionaries from St. John’s Church who were lost. The officers advised the trio to cease knocking on doors for the evening.

THURSDAY, JULY 20 Not a playground A caller to police reported finding a four-year-old girl in the middle of West Diane Road. A dispatched officer arrived on the scene and found the father. A report was filed with the Mass. Dept. of Social Services. When in doubt – mail an application A Russell Street caller reported to police that her neighbor’s two dogs are always off their leash and running loose on the road. The neighbor stated she tried talking to her neighbor but was rudely waived off. The caller stated she’s concerned about the dog’s safety. A warning citation, a copy of the leash law and a license application were mailed to the dog’s owner.

SATURDAY, JULY 22 Sticking up for the postman An Aborn Street resident alerted Animal Control to a neighbor’s two dogs that have been chasing the mailman. According to the report, an officer spoke to the dog owner, letting him know that the dogs must be leashed or on a line when the mailman is delivering mail. Makes sense to me – and the postman.

THE ADVOCATE HOROSCOPE VA & MAMMOGRAMS The VA Women Veterans Health Program has adopted guidelines published by the American Cancer Society regarding mammograms. The guidelines apply to women at average risk for breast cancer and in adopting the guidelines the VA will now give women Veterans the choice to receive breast cancer screenings starting at age 40. In addition to adopting this recommended guideline the VA has established a breast cancer registry to provide patient-specific information about breast cancer screening, treatment and test results. At present 76% of women Veterans ages 40 to 49 who are enrolled in the VA health care system receive mammograms through the VA. Adopting this guideline is a further step by the VA in improving health care for women Veterans who comprise an ever growing part of the military. Be sure to discuss this adopted guideline with your physician. Thank you for your service.

Aries (March 21st-April 20th): You’ll be craving some downtime after a busy busy week. Rest if you can this weekend, and if you can’twatch your temper! Next week expect some communication mishaps- stay calm and clarify, and double check that all of your emails get sent. Taurus (April 21st-May 20th): Let the guilt go this weekend Taurus! Whatever it is that you are being hard on yourself for is only amplified thanks to the moon right now. Realize and recognize that these feelings are not all necessary and very much so dramatized! Next week should be a lot smoother. Gemini (May 21st-June 20th): Believing what you want can get you in trouble next week as your ruling planet Mercury gets ready to go retrograde. You’ll be feeling lazy and disconnected, but fight through it to prevent work drama! Push yourself, stay alert, and this retrograde won’t be too chaotic.  Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd): Keep your schedule as flexible as possi-

ble this month. Things are going to pop up left and rightfor work and for fun! Having blocks of time open will keep you open for all the opportunities coming your way thanks to Venus. Enjoy this energy that is so in your favor Cancer! Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd): The eclipses of this month are going to start off rocky this week and next. Insecurities may get the best of you, and you’ll be feeling extra tired. Follow your needs first, and your energy will pick back up soon! Let changes happen. Virgo (August 23rd-September 22rd): The moon will have you feeling very introverted and analytical this weekend. Review through your ideas and thoughts, as this month is great for making some big changes. Stay out of conflicts at work next week, trying to help could be read as taking as side!  L i b ra ( S e p t e m b e r 23th-October 22rd): An on going issue with family or friends could start to come to a head this week. The eclipse will be

leading to quite a bit of tension and drama, but it will all blow over. Listen, but try not to take on too much energy, you’ll need it for yourself! S co r p i o (O c t o b e r 23rd-November 22nd): Stay flexible these next couple weeks, as necessary appointments will come up that you can’t avoid. The moon’s energy will be very busy and almost overwhelming next week, but you CAN get it all done! Stay on top of your time and avoid taking on extra work for now.  Sagittarius (November 23rd-December 21st):  People will be knocking on your door with all sorts of ideas and sales pitches next week. Hear out all your friends, but let then know what is actually realistic for you! Don’t commit to anything out of sympathy. Capricorn (December22nd- January 19th): The tough energy of the eclipses at the beginning of this month will work greatly for you. Use this energy to expand your income and opportunities- only a little effort will be required! Offer advice next week when a friend is in need, try not to just fix the problem for them.  Aquarius (January 20th- February 19th): A lot of attention may be demanded of you these up coming weeks. Help with what you can, but put your foot down to emotionally draining people. Everyone is feeling whiney! Rest up next weekend as work will pick up big time soon.
