The power of words: Andreas Chen and Helen Shi, both second-year students at Simon Fraser University, with a poster that was part of an awareness campaign they conducted at SFU’s Burnaby campus.
Speaking out against the R-word Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
Three Simon Fraser University students are leading a campaign to stop people from using the term “retarded” in a derogatory way. “It’s really hurtful to a lot of individuals, even if it’s not meant to be directed to someone who has a developmental disability,” said SFU business student Helen Shi. “They could know friends or family members who have Down syndrome or any other disability.” Shi and two others put up posters at the Burnaby campus, discouraging people from using the word. They also convinced about 60 to 70 people to sign a pledge not to use it. “We think it worked,” Shi said. “We got quite a few people to sign it, and we were e the Hom us in E Prize e e S PN 1 201

pretty successful, and we raised awareness about the issue.” Shi said they encountered many people who admitted to using the R-word regularly, but now that they know the hurtful connotation it can have, they’ll think twice before using it. The students’ efforts were part of an annual charity awareness campaign led by SFU’s student marketing association. This year’s benefactor was Burnaby’s Down Syndrome Research Foundation, a non-profit that runs programs for people with developmental disabilities. Executive director Dawn McKenna said “retarded” is a medical term that has almost become slang for saying someone is slow. When people say “that’s so retarded,” they

are referring to a group of people with cognitive deficits. “It’s just hurtful when people who have cognitive deficits hear the word. Their feelings are hurt. They are quite aware of what the word means, whether it’s directed at them or used in a sentence. Many of them have been bullied in their lives and been called those names,” she said. McKenna hopes more awareness on what the term means will change people’s choice of words. “There’s a whole dictionary of words that can be used. Why not broaden your vocabulary?” For more on the Down Syndrome Research Foundation, go to www.dsrf.org. www.twitter.com/JenniferMoreau
Benedict Bernabe Tomajin, 24, of Burnaby was charged Wednesday with one count of second-degree murder after the fatal stabbing of his 45-yearold mother, Josie Tomajin, on Monday. The incident rocked the quiet residential neighbourhood. Neo Wu, who lives a couple doors down from the victim’s home, told The Province about what she saw on Monday night. “It’s very horrible,” she said. “The woman was on the ground bleeding. There was blood everywhere. People are very upset about seeing this.” The incident occurred in the 6700 block of Elwell Street just before 6:30 p.m. on Monday. Josie Tomajin, who lived in the 6800 block of Elwell Street, died at the hospital several hours later. Police investigators cordoned off the area and, after talking to several witnesses, arrested the woman’s 24-year-old son, Benedict Bernabe Tomajin. Tomajin has been remanded in custody after appearing in Vancouver Provincial Court on Wednesday. His next court appearance is set for Aug. 17. “This homicide appears to be the direct result of a domestic Murder Page 4

It’s a program Heather Wilson wishes she’d had available to her 15 years ago. Wilson is a senior firefighter with the Burnaby Fire Department. Along with other female firefighters in the Lower Mainland, she organized a three-day mentorship program for girls between 15 and 18 who might be interested in a firefighting career. Camp Ignite ran from Aug. 5 to 7, primarily at the Vancouver Fire Rescue Training Centre in Vancouver, but with forays into North Vancouver. The program had 17 participants, mostly from the Lower Mainland, with one girl coming from Penticton to get a taste of what firefighting and, almost as importantly, women mentoring women, was all about. “For me, this is super cool,” said Wilson, one of seven women in the Burnaby Fire Department. “We know that firefighting is seen as a traditionally male-oriented job, but we want to show young women that it’s a job and a career they can do as well. … The young women will get a chance to see what the job entails, and we’ll have a lot of fun as well.” The fun included a hike up the Grouse Grind, going up a climbing wall and learning search and rescue techniques. Other skills taught during the camp include 6

working with fire extinguishers and fire hoses, working with ropes and knots and CPR training. Burnaby twins Tessa and Jessica Davies were two of the participants, and they seem tailor-made for the program. Jessica, 17, is 64 minutes younger than Tessa. While the two normally attend Burnaby Mountain Secondary, Jessica spent the last six months at Cariboo Hill doing a specialized automotive program. “I was so excited when I heard about this,” said Jessica. “My goal after I graduate is to join the military, but I’m also interested in firefighting. If this works out, then firefighting is something I would definitely look at.” Jessica loves the physical aspect of firefighting, and she’s not scared of much. “Doing all these cool things is so exciting,” she said. “And being able to do it with my sister is pretty cool too.” Tessa was recommended for the program before Jessica, as her Burnaby Mountain physical education teacher told her about it. When the sisters talked, Jessica got recommended at Cariboo Hill, and the two both made the grade. It’s a natural step for Tessa because she has her goals set already. “I want to be a police officer or a firefighter,” said Tessa. “My goal is to help people, and these are the two jobs where I think I can help people the most.” The identical twins have an easy rapport on the day before they went off to Camp Ignite. Jessica says the easy way to tell them apart is she has an eyebrow

Play it safe over summer. Summer season is in full swing, with great weather, summer vacations, and outdoor entertaining the order of the day. But spending more time outdoors using backyard barbeques and having pool parties can leave you and your home vulnerable to damage and liability. Before you fire up the BBQ or jump in for a cool down, remember these safety precautions to keep your family, friends, and home safe.

New storage space for museum Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter
The City of Burnaby has finally found an ideal spot for storing the Burnaby Village Museum’s equipment and odds and ends. While the museum’s artifacts are stored in the environmentally controlled space in the lower level of its administration building, extra space is necessary for equipment and signage, according to Dave Ellenwood, director of parks, recreation and cultural services. This equipment, and other mis-
cellaneous supplies, doesn’t need a climate-controlled environment, he said, just dry storage space. Up until now, the equipment has been stored at a city-owned warehouse at 6857 Royal Oak Ave. But last year that land was rezoned for commercial redevelopment, according to a report from Ellenwood. Because there isn’t a lot of industrial space for sale or lease in Burnaby, the report stated, it was a challenge finding an ideal and affordable spot for the museum’s extras. However, there is space available at the parks department’s warehouse
at 8059 Texaco Dr., and the collection will be moved there. That warehouse is being re-roofed, and the collection will be moved after that, Ellenwood said. The move should take place in September or October, according to the report, and upgrading the warehouse is expected to cost $66,870. City council approved funding of up to $74,890 from the capital reserves, for the entire project at a recent council meeting. The project cost was included in the city’s 2011 budget. www.twitter.com/janayafe

The words provide a context to its speakers, but it also helps shape the the speaker’s beliefs and motivation. perceptions of that world. It’s for this reason that the old Words have meanings that go “they’re just words” excuse is such an beyond a simple definition to add con-
invalid one. There’s no such thing as “just” when it comes to the words we use. Words have power – and far too often, that power is the ability to hurt, demean or control others. We give kudos to the students in our front-page story who are working with the Down Syndrome Research Foundation to get people to think about the way the word “retarded” is used. “That’s so retarded” (just like its sister-
phrase “That’s so gay”) seems to easily slip off the tongues of kids and adults alike. It’s simply not OK – at any age – for such phrases to be used as negative, derogatory expressions. When we use these words in this way, we’re allowing our perception of the world to be framed by them. Use your words carefully, consider their meaning and power, and see the world without prejudice.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Dix should keep quiet on money Dear Editor:
If I were Adrian Dix, one of the last topics I would talk about was how good the NDP’s management of the economy was when they were in power the last time. When they came in office they inherited an economy that was the leading provincial economy in Canada, and by the time they had left office, B.C. was at the bottom of the pack, and that is a record of economic and financial management that can only be described as abominable. He also pointed out how B.C.’s economy grew more during 10-year periods, comparing NDP and Liberal governments, failing to mention, of course,

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Keep discussion going continued from page 6
not helpful. For that reason, I have invited some opponents and proponents of the policy to my home to sit and eat and talk together, in the hope of reducing the tendency to make people into “others” not worthy of any hearing that MacLellan observes. I plan to do more. The public use of name-calling is a very alarming aspect of this. The routine use of various “-phobe” terms is one form of name-calling through logic-circumventing, “ad hominem” personal attack. To disagree about God or sex or anything is not necessarily indicative of fear or a phobia – a mental illness. And why do we think its fine to display disdain for those who do suffer from phobias anyway? In short, the “-phobe” terms are the equivalent to “that’s so gay,” “lame,” “bastard,” “loser,” “fatty,” “four eyes” and all the other terms of nonendearment. Most commentators have focused – or fixated – on the homosexual/gay/lesbian aspect of policy 5.45. However, the policy is not solely concerned with these. The policy is also intended to inculcate acceptance
of sex-related orientations, relationships, and conduct that are explicitly intentionally undefined: “queer” and “+”. Those who endorse 5.45 and seek common ground could help by addressing some issues. Can anyone clarify what conduct is included under “queer” and “+”? Are there any sex-related orientations, relationships, or conduct that should not be positively portrayed in schools to kids from kindergarten to Grade 12 (as 5.45 requires)? And, if there are any limits, on what principles should they be based? For example, some Christian denominations hold that commitment and human love are the basis of sexual ethics. Thus, they support same-sex sex but only within exclusive, committed, twoperson, non-degrading, loving relationships. But they find considerable common ground with others who reject “hookups,” promiscuity, polygamy, infidelity, bestiality, child-adult, incest, group sex, porn, coercion, S&M, exhibitionism, prostitution, etc. In short: Do you draw any line? If so, where and why? Hoping that this helps get the discussion past the polarization. H. Ward, Burnaby
Pesticides: Ban is a good idea continued from page 6
toxic corn-gluten-based weed inhibitor – had a 400 per cent increase in sales and manufacturing in the ban’s first six months. Product demand was so great the company had to move to larger premises. Other Ontario firms said they viewed the new legislation as an opportunity for business growth and new hiring. And business expansion also occurred when pesticides were banned by municipalities. For example, in the five years following passage of a pesticide bylaw in Halifax, the number of landscaping and lawn care businesses in that city grew by 53 per cent, according to Statistics Canada. Finally, this legislation is a winner with the public. Polling done in Ontario in 2007 by the national research firm Oracle found 71 per cent of residents supported a provincial prohibition on lawn and garden pesticides. Polling done the following year
found support for pesticide restrictions at 72 per cent. But what about B.C.? Polling done in the province by Innovative Research Group and released in February, 2011 found support for a phase-out of “cosmetic” or non-essential pesticides was over 70 per cent. The research also found 72 per cent of British Columbians believe these pesticides pose a threat to the environment and nearly 70 per cent believe they threaten children. Perhaps most significantly, the study found support for the phase-out does not differ between rural and urban areas. The message for government couldn’t be clearer: No matter where they live in the province, the vast majority of British Columbians want an end to toxic lawn products. Good for human health, beneficial to the environment, a boost to business: these are some of the reasons our most
respected health organizations – including the Canadian Cancer Society, the Learning Disabilities Association, the Lung Association and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation – support a provincewide prohibition on non-essential pesticides. We would suggest B.C. model its ban on Ontario’s excellent Cosmetic Pesticides Ban Act but go one step further: In addition to lawns and gardens, extend the restrictions to golf courses. We would urge British Columbians to email the premier (premier@gov. bc.ca) today with one simple message: This summer give us the protection from pesticides already enjoyed by millions of other Canadians. Gideon Forman is executive director of the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment and Dr. Warren Bell is past founding president of the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment.

Firefighting: Camp gives teenage girls a taste of a career continued from page 3
when Jessica tries to say Tessa is a little smarter in academics, Tessa won’t have any of that, saying her twin is as smart as she is. The past six months were interesting for the twins because Jessica was making new friends and acquaintances at Cariboo Hill. “Not many people there knew I had a twin,” she said. The two will be reunited at Mountain next year for their final year of high school. Wilson gets a first-hand look at how
competitive the two girls can be. When Wilson asks the two to roll up hoses side-by-side, the innocuous activity suddenly turns into a contest. Jessica nips her sister at the finish, with Tessa saying she went slower to make sure she did the job right. Looking on with admiration is Wilson and her boss, new Burnaby Fire Chief Shaun Redmond. “This is a very good program,” said Redmond. “This is a way of exposing potential candidates at an earlier age to the opportunities that exist here. … We want more women to consider firefighting as a
career, and even if the girls discover this isn’t what they want to do, they will tell their friends how informative and useful a camp like this was.” Redmond said it was easy to get behind Wilson and the Camp Ignite idea because he could see the buy-in from other neighbouring departments. “Seeing so many women expressing an interest in this, both from a mentoring side and from the participants, is exciting to see. … We are seeing strong female firefighters showing potential new recruits how exciting and great this job can be.” For Wilson, firefighting and mentor-
ship is something she takes pride in. “This camp isn’t just about recruiting girls in to this career,” she said. “We want to promote self-esteem and provide positive female role models for them. “I know that when I applied to become a firefighter, there wasn’t much for me to go on,” she said. “I would’ve loved to have tried something like this. … Now that I’ve done this job for 15 years, I can say this job is amazing. It’s an amazing career, and I want more young women to get into this career.” www.twitter.com/AlfieLau

NDP calls on premier to fight homophobia Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
B.C.’s New Democrats are calling on Premier Christy Clark to fight homophobia and transphobia in British Columbia schools in the midst of an ongoing controversy over the Burnaby school board’s new anti-homophobia policy. “The premier has been touting an anti-bullying agenda but has yet to take action to protect victims of bullying across this province,” said VancouverKensington MLA Mable Elmore. “When the Burnaby school board was under attack for standing up to homophobia in their schools, Christy Clark passed it off as a ‘local issue’ and missed an opportunity to take some leadership with a provincewide policy.” Elmore pointed out that 13 of 60 school districts in B.C. have policies protecting students from homophobia and transphobia. “That’s unacceptable,”
said Elmore. “It shouldn’t matter where a child lives, who they are or who their parents are – they should feel safe at school.” Spencer Chandra Herbert, Vancouver-West End MLA, called for safe schools for LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender/transsexual, queer) youth, and for transgender British Columbians to be explicitly protected in our Human Rights Code. According to a report from Egale Canada, an LGBT human rights organization, almost 64 per cent of LGBTQ students reported that they feel unsafe at school. Parents’ Voice, the ad hoc group opposed to the
Burnaby school board’s anti-homophobia policy, drew up a petition and gathered roughly 5,000 signatures. The group described the petition as putting “Premier Christy Clark and the B.C. government on notice that discrimination against children and violation of parental and religious rights and freedoms will not be tolerated in B.C. – even if it is camouflaged as an ‘anti-bullying’ measure.” Parents’ Voice presented Clark with the petition, but she declined to step into the fray. Clark was not available for comment prior to deadline.

Biking for a cure to end FOP Local girl afflicted by rare genetic disease that locks people in a ‘second skeleton’ Jennifer Moreau staff reporter
At first glance, six-year-old Miranda Munro may seem rather ordinary. She watches cartoons and argues with her mom about the volume, while negotiating the procurement of two chocolate bars. She has a mechanical hamster named Princess Buttercup, and she likes swimming and playing on the computer. Her family lives in a shady housing complex in Burnaby’s Forest Grove area, and few would guess this little girl is one in two million. When Miranda was born, she seemed perfectly normal, except for one thing: her big toes were turned inward. “If there is no “None of the treatment or cure doctors knew for this thing, by what to make of it,” says her mom the time she is Karen. Then, when a young adult, Miranda was one she’ll be locked and a half, she fell in a second and hit her head, and her face was skeleton from so swollen that head to toe.” her eyes were shut. Miranda KAREN MUNRO would suffer Mother more swelling, sometimes from bumps and at other times for no apparent reason. There were blood tests, but nothing conclusive. Miranda would get more swollen bumps, apparently for no reason. It wasn’t till Miranda was two years and three months old that a geneticist finally figured it out – fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva, or FOP for short. It’s a genetic disease so rare, only one in two million are affected, and most doctors wouldn’t know it if they saw it.
Jennifer Moreau/burnaby now
Geared up: Miranda Munro has fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva, a rare genetic disease that affects one in two million people. Her family is organizing a fundraising bike ride to help in the search for a cure. FOP flare-ups or physical trauma can turn muscles, tendons and ligaments to bone. Miranda’s swelling was because fragments of bone were forming beneath her skin. As the disease progresses, the body becomes trapped in a skeleton. There is no known treatment or cure, and surgery tends to make things worse. Karen was horrified to learn her daughter had FOP. “It sounded like something out of a science fiction film. If there is no treatment or cure for this thing, by the time she is a young adult, she’ll be locked in a second skeleton from head to toe.” FOP is sometimes referred to as Stone Man Syndrome, and its sufferers are called living statues. There’s no other known disease like it, where one organ system turns into another. There are an estimated 3,000 cases worldwide, but only 700 have been
confirmed. For Miranda, FOP restricts her mobility. Her back is rigid, and her shoulders are almost completely locked. Her right elbow is stuck in an L-shape, and her left is also partially locked. People with FOP can live till their 80s, but the median life expectancy is 41. Karen says her daughter doesn’t realize what she’s up against. “I don’t think she really grasps that it’s a progressive thing that’s going to limit her mobility more,” she says. “We try to explain things to her in an age-appropriate way.” FOP is also one of those “orphan diseases” that afflicts so few that there’s not a whole lot of research or hunt for a cure. It’s is caused by a mutated gene FOP Page 13

Telltale sign: People born with FOP often have toes that turn inwards, like Miranda’s shown here.

SFU’s teaching and learning centre nabbed a Leo award for C to C: Chinese Canadian Stories of
Migration. The film, by Jordan Paterson, features 20 interviews exploring how the Head Tax and Exclusion Act affected Chinese immigrants between 1923 and 1947. Paterson worked with SUCCESS, a settlement services group, to create a learning guide and website where people can upload their stories of migration. There’s also a historical
timeline, where people can view more than 60 video interviews. “This project … connected us to many communities committed to social change in Canada and China,” Paterson said. “These stories will now reach today’s youth and the community at large. It was a real privilege.” The annual Leo awards Here & Now Page 13

medicine there spends about $1.5 million a year to fund work by FOP researchers, who discovered the genetic mutation that causes the disease in 2006. Now, Karen is hoping for a drug to treat it. That’s why the Munros are organizing a fundraising bike ride on Aug. 20 in Port Moody. About 10 family members and friends are participating, and Miranda will be riding a modified bike that makes it easier for her to cycle. Karen hopes to raise $5,000 and get more people across Canada involved. The money will go to the Canadian FOP Network, a non-profit group dedicated to promoting awareness of the disease and support for a cure. But again, because of the rarity of FOP, the Munros are pretty much it when it comes to the organization’s B.C. chapter. Karen also blogs weekly about FOP. (Go to www.friendswithfop.com.) To donate, go to www. CanadaHelps.org, click on Giving Pages and type in Karen Munro to find her fundraising page. Still, Miranda’s future is somewhat uncertain. “If they don’t come up with a medication, I just want her to be happy,” Karen says.

Project was a success
Burnaby NOW readers helped a group of SFU students double their goal for collecting used sports equipment for needy families. Following a front-page July 20 story on the project, our readers donated in droves. Jethro Rocillo, one of the student organizers, sent us an email about the turnout. “Thanks to the exposure, about half of our donations came from families who saw our story on the cover. In large part to the media exposure, we surpassed our goal of collecting 500 pieces of equipment and doubled it. We raised over 1,000 items and have already transported all the items to a facility for our charity to collect. It was so successful the Burnaby parks
and recreation is planning on making it an annual event.” The students organized Project Gearing Up as part of a class assignment in project management. For more on the drive, or to see photos, go to www. projectgearingup.ca.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reﬂections Aries March 21 - April 19: This is your last week of romance, so enjoy it. (If you’re married, whenever I say “romance,” you can substitute nature’s beauty, creativity, fun, love of children – the biggest romantics become the most loving parents.) Retreat, rest and contemplate Sunday to Tuesday eve – an old ﬂame might light your solitude. Your charm and energy ﬂow forth Tuesday night through Thursday. Wednesday’s tough – wait until Thursday to chase good things. (But remember, start nothing new before Aug. 26.) Chase money Friday/Saturday – luck rides with you! Avoid home friction all August. Taurus April 20-May 20: The recent sluggish pace continues. Sink into it, rest, relax, soak up nature. Shore up security, home affairs, children, gardening, etc. Your home is a haven of beauty and affection all August. A former plan, visitor (relative) or home repair, project might return –OK, but don’t start anything big (in any area, before Aug. 26). Some irritating duties or errands might draw you into more activity than you want: that’s OK, just get them done. Your popularity and optimism rise Sunday to Tuesday. But retreat, rest Tuesday eve to Thursday. Friday/Saturday, your energy surges! Gemini May 21-June 20: Be careful with money to Sept. 18. More comes in, more goes out. You could be spending lots, and not know it (e.g., until your lawyer’s bill arrives). Tell people to stop charging you. Delays, cancellations affect communications, travel, errands, schedules, appointments. Be patient. Re-visit old haunts, contact old friends, old loves. (Result: a reassuring, mild happiness.) Career/ reputation pressures rise Sunday to Tuesday – all’s ﬁne! Your hopes and popularity rise Wednesday (problems) and Thursday (sweet). Retreat, rest Friday onward. Start nothing new before Aug. 26.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Even if you’re jumping out of your pants with impatience, don’t start anything before Aug. 26. Your determination, courage and assertiveness are at a two-year peak, but there will be drive, time and luck enough to launch something Aug. 26 to Sept.18. Meanwhile, focus your energy on past or ongoing projects/ people. And, if nothing else, just bask in your slowly but widely growing popularity! Sunday to Tuesday are mellow, wise, gentle: show love. Careful Wednesday: authorities, bosses are in a black mood – Thursday’s the opposite! Friday/Saturday bring happiness! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Your energy and charm remain high, Leo. But start nothing important before Aug. 26. Your “wisdom planet” is in a place of retreat, secrets, watching and contemplating until Sept. 18 – you’ll “get it” Sunday-Tuesday. Though you’re assertive, romantic and adventurous now, your wisdom, your best conclusions, will come from those “quiet moments.” A former “friendly romance” might reappear: to little avail Tuesday/Wednesday, to great beneﬁt Thursday! But realize romance in 2011 is a diversion, not a future. Your career, your education is more fruitful, as Friday/Saturday show. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your hopes grow about a sexual or ﬁnancial situation (investment?) a research project, or a health concern. (These fail Wednesday, but Thursday blesses them.) Don’t start a new relationship or project, especially in these sexual, etc. areas, before Aug. 26 – in the three weeks following (to Sept. 18) you’ll be able to grab them with more luck and energy. Welcome and handle a former tax, government, head ofﬁce, charity, spiritual or similar contact or obligation. Your legal position is strong. Relationships please early week. Gentle love mellows you Friday/Saturday.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: A former lover or “ﬂirty friend” might return, or your thoughts bend strongly toward him/her. If you’re both free, why not? It’s pleasing, without danger. But don’t pursue it Tuesday (though you’re tempted, it signals “empty results”) nor Wednesday (strong resentment) – Thursday is perfect. If it (or any attraction) appears Friday or Saturday, then don’t fool yourself: one of you is contemplating cheating on someone. Tackle ”mutual” chores Sunday, routine chores Monday/ Tuesday. Seek co-operation, agreement Thursday, not Wednesday. Research, ﬁnances lucky Friday/ Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The accent remains on your career, status, reputation, and dealings with VIPs, authorities, bosses and parents. Strictly avoid legal hassles to Sept. 18 – don’t mix legalities and authorities (e.g., judges, police). Otherwise, higherups admire you, even want to do you a favour – help them! A former boss or career role might return. It’s harmless, and could beneﬁt you. Forget “control” – loose and ﬂexible receives. Romantic notions sweeten Sunday-Tuesday. Work and co-workers irk you Wednesday, beneﬁt and bless you Thursday – time actions. Exciting meetings Friday/Saturday! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your home’s a haven of peace and sexy attraction Sunday (even Monday/ Tuesday) – but don’t start new home-related projects (e.g., buying sheets, renting, renovations) – nor anything important in any area – before Aug. 26. An old ﬂame, former teacher or fellow traveller might pursue you – all have same sweet intent. You could be attracted to a former book or belief. No harm in love or book; these will “fall away” in two weeks. Wednesday/Thursday are romantic – Wednesday, at best, offers “crippled love.” Thursday gives sweet, smooth success. Tackle work, Friday/Saturday.
1 MONTH FREE!
August 14 - 20, 2011 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Plug away at a pile of work. Start nothing new before Aug. 26 – stick to routine chores. DO NOT buy equipment. A former ﬁnancial situation/opportunity, sexual “opening,” lifestyle opportunity, health concern or research project could return. All these are viable and blessed with mild good luck, as long as they don’t involve dishonesty or immorality (e.g., a chance to fall for that same married person again). Errands, friends and communications ﬁll Sunday to Tuesday: Sunday best. Stop, think Wednesday. Rest, improve home Thursday. Romantic notions Friday/Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: A month of meetings, opposition and opportunity continues. The most productive of these will have a link to the past. A former business associate, spouse or serious lover, might return – with a good outcome, so welcome them – unless the situation’s unethical (e.g., you or that former spouse have re-married). Work demands a lot of communication, bits and pieces, travel now to Sept. 18 – until Aug. 26, make lists, check schedules, etc. Start nothing new before that date. Shop Sunday, not Monday/Tuesday. Safety, Wednesday! Good friends, talks Thursday. Home, Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your energy and charm surge Sunday to Tuesday, and the whole period’s ﬁlled with contentment. Romance is around you also, so Sunday, especially, could trigger something sweet! (You can be effectively assertive this day.) However, don’t start any big new relationships or projects of any kind before Aug. 26. Stick with past or ongoing affairs. Work is easy, co-workers affectionate, but delays and mistakes are rife, so double-check here. Take care with money Wednesday – shopping, collecting money much luckier Thursday. Friday/ Saturday are for friends, travel, gab sessions. email@example.com • Reading: 416-686-5014
