Monica Carbajal and son Angel, 8, are one of more than 250 families served annually by the Quantum House, which provides affordable lodging and support for families with children with a serious medical condition. “Without this house it’s impossible to receive treatment,” says Monica who, along with her son, is staying at the house for the fifth time.

HOME SWEET HOME

More than 250 families with hospitalized children benefit from the affordable room-and-board of Quantum House every year. By AMY WOODS Palms West Monthly

WEST PALM BEACH — Eight-year-old Angel Carbajal is all smiles – twisting and turning a custom wheelchair around every corner of the well-appointed kitchen in the Quantum House. Angel’s mom, Monica Carbajal, breathes a sigh of relief, knowing the boy with the birth defect can forget about doctors, hospitals and surgeries – at least for a little bit – while he enjoys the family-friendly amenities at his temporary home on the campus of St. Mary’s Medical Center. She and her son came to the Quantum House from their southern California residence at the beginning of April so the medical team could perform another surgery to lengthen Angel’s right leg. It’s their fifth trip to West Palm Beach. “I like that there’s a little playground outside,” Angel said. “There’s golf outside.” The Quantum House offers much more, comforting parents from all over the state, country and world who bring their ailing children to the Palm Beach Children’s Hospital for treatment. “This is, like, awesome,” Monica Carbajal said. “The kids do so much better here. They see other kids. It’s hard to explain. It is like being home.” But the true value is the affordability to families that may not otherwise have a place to live while their children receive medical care here. “For me, without this house, he wouldn’t have had any surgeries,” Monica Carbajal said. Her last visit to the Quantum House – in 2009 – exceeded four months. “There’s no way I can pay $100 a day for four

The Quantum House provides lodging, emotional support, meals, laundry facilities, transportation, emergency financial assistance, children’s activities and more to families with children with serious medical conditions.

months and a half,” she said. The nonprofit facility offers lodging, meals and other basic needs for a daily fee of $35. Each room has a king- and twin-size bed and private bathroom. Shared space includes a family room with a sofa and a big-screen television, a laundry room equipped with detergent and dryer sheets and a business center with office supplies and wireless Internet. “What we do here is really not rocket science,” SEE QUANTUM HOUSE / PAGE 15

Lawyers from the Palm Beach County Bar Association are ready to staff the phones during the popular Dial-A-Lawyer program April 28-30. The program opens up lines of communication between local residents and those who practice law. Between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., anyone with a legal question can call to obtain facts, guidance and information – all for free. “We hope the phones are ringing all day,” said Kirsten Herndon, chairwoman of Law Week, which runs through May 2. “I think there are always citizens in need of assistance, and oftentimes, they don’t know how to access that help.” Lawyers will not give advice on specific cases. “I know there are a lot of residents who have questions about foreclosures,” Herndon said. A total of 45 lawyers will work 1½-hour volunteer shifts during the three days. The number to call is (561) 687-2800. “I believe it’s important to give residents access to information and provide them with direction and for us lawyers to give back to the community that we practice in,” Herndon said. Law Week also includes an educational component. Lawyers will serve as guest speakers in elementary, middle and high schools to explain how the legal system works. They also will play the role of judge in classroom mock trials. “I really like the opportunity to work with the students and the younger people and really let them experience my profession and what we do,” Herndon said. “So for me, that’s very rewarding.” 

10 Ways to Save Money When Buying a New Home WEST PALM BEACH – Although most homes for sale are re-sales, one out of four home buyers purchase a new home. Which is better: existing or new? The right answer, of course, is up to you. Both resales and new homes offer advantages. Existing homes are less expensive on average, and are generally closer to, and enjoy the warmth and surroundings of established neighborhoods often with mature landscaping. New homes, on the other hand, offer innovative use of space, greater energy efficiency and choices of options and upgrades. Everything is new and modern. Most people consider both new and existing homes before they

decide to purchase. A new, special insider report entitled “New Homes – 10 Tips to Save You Time and Money” has just been released which identifies 10 invaluable tips to save you time and money when purchasing a brand new home. Also revealed are little-known buyer advantages that most builders may not tell you. To discover more about what you should be aware of before you visit your first model home call for a free report today. To hear a brief recorded message about how to order your free copy of this report, call 1-800887-4742 and enter 3121 when prompted. You can call anytime, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

In Brief Wellington High School chorus heads to the Big Apple

Look out Lincoln Center – singers from Wellington High School will take the stage May 10 for the invitation-only “The Distinguished Concerts Singers International: A Choir of Distinction.” The chorus will perform in the New York City premiere of Rosephanye Powell’s “The Cry of Jeremiah.” Chorus director Bradford Chase said the group was tapped because of its high quality and dedication to musical excellence. The students will participate in two days of rehearsals and clinics leading up to the main event. They will be accompanied by the Distinguished Concerts Orchestra, led by Maestro William Powell.

The middle school students presented creative visual “earth-saving” projects, including topics on recycling, endangered animals, alternative forms of energy and the effects of pollution. The various presentations and activities aimed to convey the message that it’s our world and our turn to take care of it.

From March 31 through April 4, students from The King’s Academy exemplified the school’s year-long “Fearless” theme by boxing nearly 10,000 pounds of produce, sorting 34,000 pounds of donated food and packing 1,632 backpacks with edibles. Seventh- and eighth-graders spent their Spring Service Week helping CROS Ministries at Hatton Farms in Canal Point, where they gleaned corn, and at Bedner’s Farm in Jupiter where they picked peppers. High-schoolers volunteered for Feeding America at the Treasure Coast Food Bank. “It felt good to know that we were helping others in need in our community,” freshman Wylee Mutz said. Added school chaplain Gary Butler: “We believe that academics and spiritual development are richly enhanced by the hands-on practicality of service.”

NICE AND EASY by Ernie Zimmerman I ez@palmswestmonthly.com

This Memorial Day let us honor the real superheroes And let’s plan to attend at least one of the many events in our surrounding communities which honors our departed heroes. At the end of May – May 26 to be exact – a very important holiday for this country will take place. It pains me to say that most folks will only see this day as a great excuse to enjoy a threeday weekend. No doubt, it will be a popular weekend to take part in all sorts of family events such as going to the beach, taking a three-day road trip to Disney World or Universal Studios, or maybe just drive down to Miami to take in a Marlins game. It’s not that I see anything

wrong in doing any of these things – in fact, I’ll most likely be doing some of those things myself. But to me, Memorial Day is the day we honor all of those brave men and women who gave it all so we can enjoy the freedom that so many of us unfortunately just take for granted. If it wasn’t for these generations of brave folks, we would not be living the lifestyles we do today. Most likely, we would not have the freedom to hold elections on the local, state and

national levels. Instead, we may have had a government similar to what currently exists in countries such as Syria and North Korea. Whenever I drive down State Road 7 and pass the South Florida National Cemetery in Lake Worth, I salute it. The folks buried in this place are my heroes and they should be your heroes as well. Talk about superheroes – these folks are the real superheroes. Also, about once a week or so, I pay a visit to a couple of them to tell them how much I

respect what they did for our country. I guess being brought up in a family where my father and all six of my uncles were World War II vets has something to do with the way I feel. Of course, I’m sure being a Vietnam vet myself also adds to my feelings on how I feel about veterans. All of my fathers friends served in World War II. In those days everyone served. No one burned draft cards or ran off to Canada. They all served their country. I was brought up hearing all of these great men talking about their experiences in World War II. (Unfortunately, I was also exposed to all of their second-hand smoke.) When the first Volkswagen Bug showed up in my neighborhood, all of these World War II veterans went crazy. They couldn’t understand how anyone who lived through the horrors of World War II could buy that car. And I still feel that way. My wife wanted a Camry for a very long time, however, since it’s a Japanese car, she couldn’t buy it until after her father and my father died. To this day, my mother will not ride in my wife’s Japanese car. She’ll only ride in my American-made Mustang rag top. And yes, even at 97 she loves to ride with the top down. On Memorial day almost

every town and village in our area will host some sort of event for our departed heroes. I hope you attend at least one of these events. I will be marching in the Wellington Parade. If you see me, please say hello. After the parade I will be going to the cemetery to pay my respects. If you know a vet or see a guy or gal in uniform, please go over to them and say, “Thanks for your service.” You will not be sorry and you will make that vet feel very good. This I know from experience, because when I came home from Vietnam no one said “thank you” to me. Not that I needed any thanks, but it sure would have been nice if people said those four words to me and my buddies. So, to all the veterans out there, and especially my fellow Vietnam vets, thanks for your service and welcome back to the world. Ernie Zimmerman, a retired New York City police officer and Vietnam veteran, walks at least three miles a day and takes life nice and easy in Wellington, where he and his wife Sharon have lived for more than 28 years.

SUMMER CAMP FUN! Summertime is fast approaching and it’s never too early to start thinking about matching your child’s interests to just the right camp.

Fortunately, with the wide array of camp choices out there, there’s a camp available for every interest. Throughout Palm Beach County there are camps for

every kid – the artistic, the science-mind, the indoorsy as well as the sports fanatic. If you can’t decide on just one, try choosing a few for a summer smorgasboard sure to give them lots to write about on that “What I Did on Summer Vacation” paper.

$5 million campaign to raise money for expansion on track QUANTUM HOUSE / FROM PAGE 1

Quantum House Executive Director Robi Jurney said. “It’s simple. They need a place to sleep and they need a place to eat.” A sign at the front entrance reads, ”Everything in Quantum House has been donated including the place where you are standing.” Guest rooms are filled with furniture donated by The Breakers following the luxury hotel’s remodeling project in 2011. Toiletries are donated by supporters who collect them from motels while on vacation. One woman knits afghans for children to snuggle with at the hospital. From cleaning supplies to paper products to hammers and nails, Quantum House has everything a regular home needs due to the generosity of others. “The lids on our Tupperware don’t match – just like your house,” Jurney said. The playground sits next to a butterfly garden maintained every Friday morning by volunteers. The playroom has an activity every day, including a weekly visit by one of the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society’s animals. Volunteers deliver vegetables that a “Chef of the Day” cooks along with a hot nutritious meal seven nights a week. “For 35 bucks, the place has got to be a fleabag, right?” Jurney joked. “We think this place should be as beautiful a place that it can be. This is the safe zone.” More than 250 families with hospitalized children benefit from the affordable room and board annually. Another 250 have to be turned away because of lack of space. Quantum House’s 10 rooms met the demand when the building opened in 2001, but no longer can keep up with

patient growth at the pediatric hospital. The organization has embarked on a $5 million capital campaign to expand the house by 20,000 square feet and add 20 rooms. “We just don’t have enough room,” Jurney said. “That’s why we’re calling the campaign ‘Welcome Home.’ We want more people to come home.” About 30 percent of the funds for “Welcome Home” have been raised thanks to the work of local philanthropist Cathy Flagg, campaign chairwoman. “I have absolutely no doubt that we will be ready to go by the end of the summer,” said Flagg, whose belief in lessening the burden on families with ill children dates back 26 years, when 2-year-old daughter Maggie was rushed to St. Mary’s Medical Center after a febrile seizure. “I was terrified,” Flagg said. “I didn’t know what to think.” She was fortunate: Maggie went home after three days. “If it had been something more serious, and we had been there longer, I can see where Quantum would be such a blessing for so many people,” Flagg said. “I just think it’s so important that we provide that service.” The campaign will receive another boost May 18 during the Butch Smith Poker Classic at the Palm Beach Kennel Club. The annual tournament, which raises funds for organizations including Quantum House, is organized by a group of firefighters. “The reason we give to the Quantum House is because they give to others,” event coordinator Sam Eaton said. “This is a special place.” 

Tom Hardy stars as Ivan Locke in the drama thriller, “Locke.”

Tom Hardy drives ‘Locke,’ in every way By JOCELYN NOVECK The Associated Press

There are plenty of minimalist films out there. And then there’s the tiny sub-genre of the truly, ultra-minimalist films: One character. In one place. Think “Buried,” in which Ryan Reynolds spent 94 minutes stuck in a coffin, with a waning cellphone. Or “All is Lost,” in which Robert Redford spent 106 minutes adrift on a stricken sailboat, with waning options. And now there’s “Locke,” in which Tom Hardy spends 85 minutes in his car, just driving south on a British motorway, toward London. His life isn’t in danger – well, not in the literal sense. And the Bluetooth is working just fine. The only thing waning is, quite simply, his carefully constructed existence. In the course of one car ride, it’s all falling apart. It sounds almost trite to say that a film like this lives or dies on its central performance (other actors appear here, but only by telephone.) Trite, but true. And luckily, Hardy is compelling enough here to drive – forgive the pun – the action. That’s not to say “Locke” will work for everyone. Hardy’s performance as an upstanding, tightly controlled family man trying to right a terrible mistake is admirably restrained, in a situation when overacting must have been a constant temptation. But it’s precisely this strength of the film, written and directed by Steven Knight, that makes it heavy lifting for the viewer. It demands a lot of patience – especially when it really sinks in that this car, and

Hardy’s face, will be everything you see. And it demands a willingness to absorb countless details on the fascinating subject of concrete pouring. Yes, concrete pouring. Did you know the difference between C6 concrete and C5? By the end of this film, you will. Ivan Locke (Hardy), you see, is a construction foreman, and early the next morning, he’s due to supervise a huge project – the concrete pour at the site of a new skyscraper. This is, in fact, the largest concrete pour to happen in Europe, outside of military or nuclear sites, as we keep being reminded in phone calls of escalating desperation with Locke’s boss and an underling. Why are these calls desperate? Because on the eve of the biggest day of his career, Locke has left it all and started driving to London. Nine months earlier, on a business trip, he wound up with a bottle of wine and a lonely woman. Now, she is giving birth, all alone, and though he barely knows her, he feels he has no choice but to join her. “I’m going to do the right thing,” he says, in a line that becomes a mantra. The dialogue takes place almost entirely in phone calls, and the most effective of these

Locke

are between Locke and his wife (an excellent Ruth Wilson), who gets the shocking news as she’s preparing a family evening watching football on the telly. “Hi love. I got sausages,” she tells Locke happily when he first calls. Soon, she’s vomiting in the bathroom. Locke insists this is the only time he’s ever transgressed in all their years together. “The difference between never and once is the difference between good and bad,” she tells him. The dialogue here feels raw and real. By contrast, things get unnecessarily maudlin when Locke starts speaking aloud to his dead father. It’s as if Knight, who’s penned an otherwise excellent screenplay, lost his nerve and felt compelled to add another layer of drama. Really, it’s enough to watch Hardy’s Locke, neatly clad in a proper sweater and checked dress shirt, as the enormity of his predicament sinks in. The problem is, doing the right thing by Bethan, the woman about to give birth, means doing the wrong thing to his family and his co-workers. He’s always been able to figure everything out. But this time, there may be no answer. And that motorway exit for London is coming soon.

FACES & PLACES

19th Annual Family Picnic benefits Hanley Center’s prevention efforts

Peter Kostis and Ian Baker-Finch

Masters announcers a special treat to gathering at Breakers Members of the American Cancer Society’s 19th Hole Club gathered in April at The Breaker’s Ocean Golf Course practice green to hear CBS Sports’ Peter Kostis and Ian Baker-Finch share stories about their experiences covering the Masters, as well as some memorable accounts of their personal life experiences in the golf industry. Guest of Honor Kostis and Master of Ceremonies BakerFinch also offered a few putting tips and personal instruction for the more than 100 guests in attendance. The 46th annual event, presented by Addison Hines Charitable Trust, also included two putting contests, hors d’oeuvres, food stations, silent auction and a drawing for prizes. After the contests, the guests moved to the clubhouse

veranda for the presentation of the Homer H. Marshman Outstanding Community Award to Dr. Elizabeth Bowden for her continued support of the American Cancer Society and more than 14 years of service on the society’s Island of Palm Beach Board of Trustees. “We were excited to have Peter and Ian join us this year – especially the day after the Masters, as they were able to share with us first-hand information of the player’s strategies and inner thoughts from the major tournament,” said event chairman Jamie Zahringer. Kostis, a colon cancer survivor, stated how important “early detection, through regular screenings, is to saving lives,” and credits his wife for persuading him to get his screening earlier than was scheduled.

The Hanley Center Foundation’s recently held 19th Annual Family Picnic helped raise critical funds for Hanley Center’s prevention and education programs. Held under a ringside tent at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center in Wellington, the benefit offered the opportunity for families to come together for a day of activities for all ages – a key way to prevent future substance abuse, according to Family Picnic cochairman Val Perez. “We know that spending time with your children today helps you stay connected tomorrow,” said Perez. “Seventy-two percent of kids in families who don’t eat dinner together are more likely to use tobacco, alcohol and drugs. We hope the families who attended the picnic saw it as the perfect opportunity to spend a really fun day together and reinforce that family time is time well spent, all while benefiting a really important cause.” The day’s lineup of events included VIP seats for worldclass equestrian show jumping, animal encounters, crafts, a kid-themed silent auction and a family-focused luncheon, all marking the Hanley Center Foundation’s 19th year of raising funds for substance abuse prevention efforts in local schools. The Family Picnic committee was led by chairmen Lisa and Dan Thomas, with child chairmen Jack and Whitney; co-chairmen Denise Groo and Val Perez; honorary chairmen Dorothy and Sheriff Ric Bradshaw, with child honorary chairmen and grandsons, Landon Branch and

COMMUNITY ROUND-UP / WELLINGTON

Village Memorial Day parade/ceremony set for May 26 Wellington will also host free concerts and movies throughout the summer on Friday and Saturday nights at the amphitheater. By MAYOR BOB MARGOLIS Exclusive to Palms West Monthly

This month we remember the servicemen and women who died defending our freedom throughout our country’s history. Memorial Day is one of

our most solemn and important holidays – and Wellington treats it as such. Our Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony takes place on Monday, May 26th. The parade begins at 8:15 a.m. at the

municipal complex parking area and makes its way down Forest Hill Boulevard to Southshore Boulevard. At 8:30 a.m., after the parade, we’ll hold the ceremony at the Veterans Memorial. Please join

us to remember the fallen soldiers who served so valiantly over the years defending our freedom. If you know anyone who is serving or who has served, please thank them for their dedication and sacrifice. If you would like to honor a veteran by having their name and service branch added to the roll call, please contact Nicole Evangelista at (561) 791-4000, or email her at nevangelista@wellingtonfl.gov. I thank the members of our armed forces and their families, both now and past, for their sacrifices. If you can’t make it to the parade or ceremony, I ask that you too keep in mind these sacrifices. And again, if you know someone who is serving or who has served, thank them. It’s important that they know how much we honor, appreciate and respect them. When schools let out for the summer, parents often rack their brains thinking of fun, safe activities for their kids to do every day. Why not consider Wellington’s All-Day Summer Camp? The camp will run from June to the middle of August, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. Held at Village Park, the camp will offer all sorts of exciting activities – sporting events, athletics, arts and crafts, movies, games and much more! You can rest assured that

your children will not only be supervised, but having a great time day after day. Children ages 5 to 15 are eligible to register and the cost is $160 per week for residents. Friday and Saturday nights throughout the summer, the Wellington Amphitheater offers free concerts and movies! Each Friday night we’ll feature a different film, and on select Saturday nights a tribute band will perform. Concerts and films begin at 8 p.m. or 8:30 p.m. We also offer numerous other camps, academies, and classes for kids, teens, adults and seniors. Some of these include various sports, cheerleading, gymnastics, martial arts and fitness classes. Check out the Parks and Recreation section on wellingtonfl.gov for more information on all these offerings and more. No matter the age, Wellington will be offering some activity of interest. I look forward to seeing residents of our community have a wonderful time this summer!

Outside the Neighborhood Massachussetts home intruder turns out to be a duck

NORTH READING, Mass. — Police in Massachusetts responding to reports of an intruder in a woman’s home quickly quacked the case. A North Reading woman called police April 6 from her upstairs bedroom to report that she heard loud banging noises downstairs and feared someone had broken into her home. Officers who responded found no sign of a break-in. But during a quick search of the home, police found a sootcovered wood duck. Police say it appears the duck got in through the chimney. An officer caught the duck and released it into a nearby pond.

ing inside a claw crane machine at a Nebraska bowling alley. Lincoln police say a 24-yearold woman called April 14 because her 3-year-old son was missing from her apartment. Employees at the bowling alley across the street meanwhile called police to say a small boy was playing with stuffed animals inside the coinoperated machine. It was unclear how the boy ended up inside the claw crane machine. A representative from the vending machine company let him out and he was reunited with his mother a short time later. He was not hurt. Police say the mother was not cited because she quickly reported that her son was missing and there were no indications of neglect.

President Vladimir Putin from all of the company’s 23 locations in western New York. The company, known for its quirky ads, announced on social media in early April that effective immediately, Putin is banned from Mighty Taco for seizing Crimea from Ukraine. Mighty Taco’s posting says Putin may be ordering around Crimea, but he won’t be ordering a Super Mighty, one of the chain’s most popular menu items.

CHARLESTON, S.C. — A man who faced a $525 fine for refilling an 89-cent drink at a Veterans Affairs hospital apparently will get off with a warning. When Christopher Lewis of North Charleston, S.C., refilled his drink without paying on April 16, a federal police officer gave him a ticket. Lewis is a construction worker and says he never noticed the signs and has refilled his drink before without paying. VA spokeswoman Tonya C. Lobbestael said after reviewing what happened at the Ralph C. Johnson Center in Charleston, officials decided a warning was sufficient. Lobbestael says the cafeteria at the center has signs posted in the drink machines indicating the cost of refills. Failing to pay for the refills is considered shoplifting.

Woman moves stranger’s vehicle; key fits two cars

NEW YORK — A Brooklyn woman says her mother accidentally moved a stranger’s car with a key that fit two vehicles. Cheryl Thorpe was housesitting for her daughter, Nekisia Davis, when the mix-up occurred on April 7. Thorpe had agreed to move cars for Davis and her friends because of street cleaning regulations. She even texted them to proudly report: “All cars

moved successfully.” When they got home from vacation, Davis’ friend discovered the Honda that Thorpe had moved wasn’t hers. It took 10 days to track down the owner, who thought she’d been targeted by a professional car thief. Honda says it’s very rare for a key to fit two cars.

Runaway steer spared from butcher knife MANCHESTER, Mich. — A steer that made a break for it while on the way to slaughter in North Dakota is getting settled at a Michigan farm animal sanctuary after being spared from the butcher knife. The 1,800pound steer kicked out a gate at a meat processing plant in Casselton on March 6 and wandered around town for a while, prompting a school and a child care center to keep children inside. No one was hurt and no property was damaged. SASHA Farm in Manchester, about 50 miles southwest of Detroit, agreed to get the steer, which had been called Waldo but now is known as Fargo. Sanctuary co-owner and cofounder Dorothy Davies tells The Ann Arbor News the steer now is “part of the herd and part of the family.”

went to the home of 37-yearold Evelyn Hamilton to hear her complaint that the dealer refused to return her money after she objected that the drug was substandard. Casper says she pulled the small amount of marijuana from her bra when the officer asked if she still had it. She was arrested on a charge of possession of drug paraphernalia. Hamilton said she spent $40 on “seeds and residue.” She says she called police when she got no satisfaction from the dealer’s family.

Animal shelter buried under carrot avalanche

SKOWHEGAN, Maine — A Maine animal shelter has so many carrots it doesn’t know what to do. The Somerset Humane Society in Skowhegan received the carrots in mid-March from a trucking company that wanted to get rid of them after a supermarket manager turned them away because some were bruised. The carrots were still edible and the trucking company didn’t want to waste them. Shelter Director Hattie Spaulding estimates they got three to four tons of carrots. She tells the Morning Sentinel she’s donated them to area food pantries and homeless shelters, the county jail, and offered them for 50 cents a bag to the public. Most of the dogs and cats at the shelter aren’t particularly interested in carrots, but Spaulding says a local horse owner has offered to take some.

Woman complains to police about quality of marijuana LUFKIN, Texa — Police in East Texas have arrested a woman after she called them to complain about the quality of the marijuana she had purchased from a dealer. Lufkin police Sgt. David Casper said that an officer

Aries (March 21 – April 20) You aren’t ready to break out yet. Between issues with kids and your normal routine you’re pretty much tied down. Your true passion will have to sit on the back burner until you’re done dealing with all of this. Taurus (April 21 – May 21) You’ve gotten more realistic about what’s actually possible right now. The message is clear; keep it simple and don’t overextend yourself. Too much is at stake for you to do much but try to hang on to what you have. Gemini (May 22 – June 21) You’ve managed to mix business with pleasure well enough to see that it may be worth your while to pursue new avenues of expression. As good as this looks, wait and see; it may not be time for that yet. Cancer (June 22 – July 23) Playing both ends to the middle only works for so long; sooner or later we all have to choose. Torn between two options, you’ve been trading your freedom for security long enough to know that it just

isn’t worth it. Leo (July 24 – Aug. 23) Reaping what we sow is often a bitter pill. The seeds for your current dilemma were sown a long time ago. Taking the good with the bad would be easier if you understood the extent to which you created this. Virgo (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23) If you’re unsure about things, join the club! Rather than try to micromanage what is totally beyond your control, try surrendering to the idea that all of this confusion is here to get you to rearrange your priorities. Libra (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23) None of your core beliefs seem to be working for you. This is a test, but there’s no need to freak out. Pay attention to the reality of your experience and let that teach you how to readjust your perceptions. Scorpio (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22) You can’t beat around the bush anymore. It’s time to blow the whistle. The fallout will disturb quite a few people but it won’t come down on you. Much to everyone’s surprise, the truth will set you free.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21) Between the thought that there’s not much time left and your questions about life in general, you aren’t willing to go along with the program anymore. This is huge! Be prepared; you’re about to get a life. Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20) Don’t take this personally. Sometimes people do things because it’s part of their own growth process. Whatever so-andso did, it was a favor to you. This is an opening. Get over yourself and move on. Aquarius (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19) If you’re feeling empty, take heart; nature hates a vacuum. Whatever’s missing is about to hit you like a ton of bricks. Getting exactly what you want will require impulse to reign over caution, just this once. Pisces (Feb. 20 – March 20) You’re still here. That could be considered a good thing if you didn’t seem so stuck. All the comforts of home can’t compare to what you could be doing if you weren’t so afraid to step out of character and get real.
