Kids make up a third of food bank clients

Monthly food hampers, fresh produce, and extras are available to low-income citizens. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Food Banks Canada released its annual HungerCount Report this week and it found 882,000 people across the country using food banks. Three thousand of those people are from Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, 1,000 of which are children. But Joanne Olson, executive director of Friends In Need Food Bank, said she thinks there are more

people, especially seniors, in the community who would qualify for a monthly food hamper. “I think there are a lot more people eligible,” Olson said. Currently, her organization gives out 700 hampers of food every month. Food bank clients can also come in weekly for fresh fruit and vegetables, buns and bread, and other extras. The cutoff income level for a single person to get a monthly hamper is about $1,400, for two people, $2,000, three, $2,400, four, $2,700, five, $3,100, and six, $3,400. With Christmas season around the corner, Olson is worried about scammers, and she pointed out Friends In Need Food Bank does not solicit

door-to-door for food or cash donations, except if it’s a special event, for example, students collecting food for We Scare Hunger, or the Mormon Church that collects food before Thanksgiving Day. Any community initiatives affiliated with their organization are posted online, Olson said. “If it’s us, it’s on the website,” Olson said, referring to www.friendsneedfood.com. Friends In Need Food Bank focuses on two events around Christmas where they collect food and cash: the Maple Ridge Christmas Parade, which is on Dec. 1 this year; and the CPR Holiday Train, which will be at the Port Haney Station on Tuesday, Dec. 18 at 7:45 p.m.

Participants must enter their poems online at www.mrtimes.com, go to “More Ways to Connect,” and click on “send us your letters, photos, video.” Fill in your name, email, and phone number, then insert a copy of your poem.

Say Good Night to Sleepless Nights Introducing

We Make the World’s Best Mattress

Today, many people prefer a memory foam mattress for its pressure-relieving comfort, ability to conform and adapt to each person’s body, and outstanding motion isolation. Even so, traditional memory foam technology hasn’t changed much since it was invented more than 40 years ago. While it can provide great comfort to many, others find that memory foam mattresses can sleep too hot, sink in too deeply or make it hard to adjust sleep positions in the night. Isn’t it about time that someone reinvented memory foam? Introducing the new iComfort Sleep System by Serta, featuring our Cool Action™ Gel Memory Foam - the world’s first memory foam infused with the support and cooling touch of Serta’s MicroSupport™ gel. This revolutionary new memory foam is designed to deliver superior pressure relief and more targeted support while sleeping cooler than ordinary memory foam. Plus, it is antimicrobial and dust mite resistant to help protect your mattress from potential allergens.

Ghost Ridge escapes flooding

Albion Fairgrounds is under a foot of water and crews are looking into the cause. by Sylver McLaren smclaren@mrtimes.com

Hundreds of partygoers took in the fireworks finale and surprise flash mob at Ghost Ridge Haunted House Tuesday night. Little did they know that a few hours later the Albion Fairgrounds would be under a foot of water.

THEY’LL LOVE THE TASTE, YOU’LL LOVE THE VALUE!

“The District found a beaver dam and brought in an excavator to remove it,” said Tom Cameron, president of the agricultural association. “They did it and now the water is dropping rapidly,” he added. “The dam was found about 500 metres from the fairgrounds on the Wynnyks’ property.” Ray Arsenault, son-in-law of Country Fest manager Lorraine Bates, was on his way to work Wednesday morning and spotted the flood and called the District’s electricians.

“Apparently the department of fisheries has a floodgate down there too and it was open and the water should be running away,” explained Cameron. District spokesperson Fred Armstrong said crews examined the pumps and found them to be in working order. “Spencer Creek runs through the fairgrounds and the pumps located at Tamarak and Lougheed Highway pump the water into the Kanaka water system,” explained Armstrong. “The pump system is working fine, so the crews [went] into

the wildlife area to determine if there are any beaver dams or other debris causing the water to back up,” he said. Bates noticed that Spencer Creek in Albion was higher than usual on Tuesday, but chalked it up to rain. However, not everyone was upset about the flooding. Brigit Sparrow and her two dogs Bree and Gina were playing in the water. As was Sandra Burghill’s dog Bruin. “It’s an off-leash water park,” joked Cameron.

Our View

Use the Force… right here! With the shocking news this week that George Lucas has sold Industrial Light and Magic, and the rights to make more Star Wars movies, to Disney, we see an opportunity. Disney has already announced it will produce at least three more thrilling tales of Jedi knights and space battles. We suggest an excellent location for those films: right in our backyard. Need to film speeder bike chases, wookie villages, or ewok celebrations? We have some pretty big forests just north of our downtown areas. Need a dank underground lair infested with monsters, gangsters, and bounty hunters? B.C. has numerous old mining sites and natural caverns. Buildings seething with totalitarian menace, suitable HQs for jackbooted Imperial thugs? Have you seen our government offices? Reefs? Check. Edenic farm country? Check. Raging rapids? Scorching deserts? Vast, snow-capped mountains and seemingly endless icefields? Check, check, and double-check. Of course, if Disney prefers to use CGI and film everything in front of greenscreens, we also have plenty of warehouses. And we can build more. There is plenty of industrial land available, right in our own neighbouhood – along with filming tax credits. This part of the Lower Mainland has long been used as a backdrop for science fiction and fantasy TV, from Battlestar Galactica to the X-files, from Supernatural to Fringe. But we have yet to welcome a big budget, world-famous science fiction film franchise. Thanks to Peter Jackson, New Zealand has become synonymous with Middle Earth. What kind of a boost would it be for B.C.’s tourism industry to be known as the location of Yavin IV, Bespin, or Mos Eisley. C’mon, B.C. government, get on the phone with the House of Mouse, and use the Force! – M.C.

International trade

Urgent call to stop China deal

Dear Editor, As soon as this week, Prime Minister Stephen Harper could commit Canada to the most sweeping trade deal in a generation, and this comes without a single debate or vote. Are you aware that, if the Canada-China FIPA passes, it will pave the way for China’s massive companies to spend billions buying out Canada’s natural resource companies? What is Harper doing to us? Under this new deal, China’s companies can sue Canadian governments, federal, provincial or municipal, in secret tribunals outside the Canadian court system, if those governments do anything that would limit the company’s profits in Canada. One example that could arise very quickly is, if this deal passes and the Enbridge pipeline does not go through due to mounting opposition from Canadians, China could launch a lawsuit against our country. This trade deal would tie our hands for 31 years, making it possible for China’s companies to challenge Canadian laws that create jobs, protect our environment, and build healthy communities with billion-dol-

lar lawsuits that would cost us, the taxpayers, dearly. Canada has already spent hundreds of millions on penalties from lawsuits launched under The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and currently, Belgium is facing a $3 billion suit from one of China’s companies because of a similar foreign investor agreement. Why would Harper lock us into this secretive and extreme deal? The answer can only be short-term gains for long-term pain! Harper is selling us out, and Canadians better pull their heads out of the sand, but quick. If you have never spoken up about your right to protect our county, as a Canadian, now is the time. This is urgent – don’t wait. Canadians and Chinese alike have a right to have a say in the decisions that will shape our lives. Contact your your provincial and federal government leaders to voice your opinion. Make sure everyone knows what is going on so we have a chance to stop this in its tracks. Dana Lacroix, Maple Ridge

Pitt Meadows

Save money on council’s salaries

Dear Editor, The question asked in the beginning of the article concerning Pitt Meadows taxes [page A4, October 23] can easily be answered. Why not start keeping taxes down by cutting the annual increase to the salaries of the mayor and council members, not to mention those additional payments that are some sort of reward for bothering to attend meetings? [Petition targets

City taxes, Oct. 23, TIMES] It must be nice to be able to set your own salary, annual increases, and get paid “extra” just for doing your job, and all with no input or control by those who must pay them. In her remarks following her election as mayor last November, Ms. Walters spoke of being responsive to the residents. This proverbial smoke has quickly vanished.

Appreciation

Young pathfinders supported

Dear Editor, On behalf of Pathfinder Youth Centre Society’s Working Together Maple Ridge 7-1 program, we would like to thank you for your support with our free Children’s Summer Carnival. This year’s carnival was held on Sept. 9 at Memorial Peace Park and was a huge success. We had another incredible turnout this year of more than 400 children and their accompanying parents. The success of our carnival is largely based on the thoughtful contributions from organizations like yours. We appreciate your community spirit and continued support. A special “thank you” to all of our donors, volunteers, and to our community partners who attended our event this year, enhancing our carnival experience and overall, funfilled atmosphere. Our donors are so numerous this year that we cannot mention all of them in this letter. Alana Jackson and Ruth Lee, Pathfinder Youth Centre Society [Note: A fuller version of this letter, and a full list of donors is at www.mrtimes.com, click on Letters.]

The mayor, with the support of certain other council members, earlier proposed a blanket four per cent increase in property taxes for each of the next three years, long before the annual budgets had even been prepared. She has repeatedly said a zero-increase in taxes is “unrealistic,” obviously before any attempt to curtail unnecessary (to the residents, if not council) expenses was considered. This is not indicative of someone who understands and can practice sound fiscal management. We should be able to expect our elected officials to manage our money – and it is our money they are throwing around –with more responsibility. Every individual on a fixed income knows that you have to make sometimes tough choices to remain within your budget. Ms. Walters and her Council supporters are perhaps not used to fixed incomes, and thus when they come to elected office they have little if any regard for other people’s money. This is certainly how they are behaving. Byron Hosking, Pitt Meadows

Bullies murdering girl’s memories

Dear Editor, I (like many other people around the world) am writing about beautiful Amanda Todd’s suicide due to the various forms of bullying. I find it appalling, disgusting, and truly sad that anonymous, cowardly bullying continues even after her death. Sometimes words and/or photographs can hurt more than physical and/or sexual assaults. Most often, the body will physically, given enough time, heal itself. But cruel,

mean, spiteful, degrading, shameful, heartless words permeate the mind and remain there, like in Amanda’s case, for an infinite period of time. I believe the bullies, in life, murdered Amanda, and in death, murdered her memory. Ultimately, in Amanda’s case, the pen is mightier than the sword. I am imploring the bullies to let Amanda rest in peace. Linda Meyer, Maple Ridge

Music

Busking pays for violin

A young musician will play fiddle tunes this Friday at a fundraiser.

WORRIED YOUR NEW MORTGAGE COULD PUSH THE IMPORTANT THINGS OUT OF YOUR LIFE?

by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Emmalene van Meel is very grateful to the many people who donated spare change to her at the Haney Farmers Market over the years as she fiddled – it has helped her finally buy a full-sized violin. The Whonnock resident will be part of the lineup this Friday evening at Burnett Fellowship Church where a fundraiser, the Benefit Celtic Concert, is being held to raise money for this year’s Santa Claus Parade and Christmas in the Park events on Dec. 1. At the age of eight, Emmalene discovered fiddling and since then that has been her main musical genre. She plays with the North Shore Celtic Ensemble and studies at the Langley Community Music School. Emmalene, now 15, has been performing for years, making her big-stage debut at the closing ceremonies of the BC Disability Games in Maple Ridge in 2009. “I’ve been doing it for so long, I don’t find it very nerve-racking any more,” she said. “I love to perform because I like to connect with the audience,” she explained, adding that she enjoys the feeling of sharing her music with an audience, and “it feels nice when they like your music.” Emmalene started going to the Haney Farmers Market about four years ago, and at that time, she was collecting donations toward her trip to Scotland

GULP!

Maria Rantanen/TIMES

A Whonnock teen will be performing at Friday’s Celtic concert to benefit the Maple Ridge Christmas Parade Society. with the North Shore Celtic Ensemble’s senior fiddling group. Later, her focus was on saving up for a full-sized violin, and she estimates her fiddling at the market helped pay for about half of her new instrument. After playing fiddle music for several years, and performing extensively – much of it Canadian fiddling, which is a combination of Quebecois, Scottish, and French fiddling – Emmalene is leaning more toward classical violin, learning Bach and Mozart. She plans to study music when she goes on to postsecondary, with her goal to be a music performer. Emmalene said she thinks the concert on Friday, where she’ll be on stage with fellow North Shore Celtic Ensemble fiddler Jessie Kazemir, will be a “blast.” The Benefit Celtic

Concert takes place from 8 to 10 p.m. at Burnett Fellowship Church, 20639 123rd Ave. In addition to the Emmalene’s performance with Jessie Kezemir, the concert lineup includes Tam and Shelley Gordy of the Navvies, Lydia Querengesser with the Young Peoples Opera Society of B.C., and Brian Nash of the Welsh Men’s Choir. Senior accompanist for the evening is Lillian Cumberbirch from the Wilson Seniors Centre Honey Combs, and emcee for the evening is Cristin Bostrom. The concert’s musical director is Nigel Tucker. Tickets for the Friday, Nov. 2 concert can be purchased at the door for $10, with all proceeds going to pay for the free December parade. For information, go to www.mapleridgechristmas.ca.

Visitors to the Golden Ears Cheesecrafters first anniversary party on Oct. 21 had the chance to find out when the Mobile Dairy Classroom Experience visited with two dairy cows and a calf. “The Mobile Dairy Classroom Experience is a fantastic program that educates the public on how milk gets from the cow to the family in a fun, interactive way,” said Pitt Meadows dairy farmer Joe Bachmann. The Mobile Dairy Classroom Experience is raising awareness this fall about B.C.’s dairy industry around the province. “As British Columbia’s population becomes increasingly urban, it

He explained that the Mobile Dairy Classroom Experience was designed to “literally bring the farm to people across the province.” This program will take you on a walk through a dairy farm and show you exactly how milk gets from the farm to your kitchen. The displays are filled with facts and information about dairy cows, and milk, as well as offers fun, interactive challenges. At select events during the fall, the public will

have the opportunity to “milk” a life-sized fibreglass dairy cow named Delilah. The experience is in a fifth wheel trailer that has been modified to fit a milking jar and a milking machine, with room to transport two cows and one calf. During demonstrations, a presenter describes the process of producing milk, talks about the dairy industry, and engages the audience in a discussion about milk, while a facilitator demonstrates the milking process.

A scientist has made her way from Maple Ridge to a land of beetle discoveries in Alberta. by Bob Groeneveld bgroeneveld@mrtimes.com

Charlene Wood has always been interested in nature – but it was a professor at Simon Fraser University who got her hooked on bugs. Dr. Gerhard Gries’s “very animated and entertaining lectures with many examples of insect behaviour” inspired her, and soon she got a research position in his lab. Next stop was John Spence’s lab at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, where she earned her master’s degree with her work on beetles that live in dead aspen wood in northwestern Alberta. That work also led to her discovery of seven beetle species new to science – and another 47 beetle species not previously known to occur in Alberta.

y name is Ania Glowacka and I am a BCRPA certified Personal Trainer and Sports Nutritionist from In The Zone Fitness in the heart of Pitt Meadows. This week we have started a 10 week fitness challenge with Ralph DeAdder. Ralph is an advertising consultant for the Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows Times newspaper and a very busy father of two. If he’s not hard at work with the news paper, he can be found at various sporting events each week with his children. Though time does not come in abundance for Ralph, he decided that it was finally time to take his health into his own hands and complete my 10 week fitness challenge. Having high cholesterol levels, and limited exercise history, Ralph knew that the sooner he start the better and found the challenge the perfect motivation to do so. We began with the task of Ralph compiling a food journal for the week to assess his current eating habits. From there we discussed his specific fitness goals. Ralph’s primary concern was his cholesterol levels and the need to lower them. His second goal was weight loss, wanting to lose approximately 15lbs taking his current weight

of 190lbs to 175lbs. His third and last goal was to increase his overall energy level for all the demands of his everyday life as he was finding that towards the end of the day and week he had been feeling more and more drained. From there, we began a fitness test determining Ralph’s initial fitness level and any muscular or postural imbalances that he may have. From all the information gathered I was able to report that there were no major issues or concerns that needed to be addressed prior to starting our regular fitness routine, meaning that Ralph was able to start right away on his fitness journey. We determined that Ralph would train three times a week and we were able to start our first week off with basic machine-based weight exercises and cardio interval training to build basic strength and cardio endurance. With a strong sense of enthusiasm, Ralph went through each session determined to get through each exercise with proper form and purpose. A great start to our first week. Please join us again next week for the next instalment of Ralph’s progress through week two!

Online phenomenon provides fodder for musical Playwrights showcase “humanity pressed against the glass” in a play about Craigslist. With more than 700 local sites in 70 countries, and more than 20 billion page views and 50 million new ads posted monthly, Craigslist has become a treasured online place where anyone can share their needs, wants, and offerings. This online phenomenon has been turned into a play, Do You Want What I Have Got? A Craiglist Cantata, to be presented at The ACT on Saturday, Nov. 3. Do You Want What I Have Got? is an 80-minute song cycle of quick-witted and heartfelt spoken text and song. Personal ads, set to music, with irregular hats for cats, mounted lobsters, auto-

ALLIANCE

graphed copies of the Bible: this new work from composer Veda Hille and Bill Richardson, both based in Vancouver, explores what humanity has to offer and turns it into comic musical fare. Hille describes Craiglist as “the mass of humanity pressed against the glass,” offering a forum that is simultaneously anonymous and incredibly public. Who wouldn’t want a broken time machine, for free? Come and take a look at the vagaries and intimacies of the Internet. The musical features the songs 300 Stuffed Penguins, Chilli Eating Buddy, Decapitated Dolls, and more. Do You Want What I Have Got? A Craigslist Cantata takes place Saturday, Nov. 3 at 8 p.m. at The ACT. Tickets are on sale at The ACT Ticket Centre, by calling 604-476-2787 or by going to www. theactmapleridge.org

It begins with early casting contests in the 1800s and ends with debunking the myth that double-handed rods are best for long casts. He said one need only look at the distance of 243 feet, that Steve Rajeff achieved with his single-hand rod, for testament enough that it is technique, not rod length that makes the cast. • More online: www.mrtimes.com, click on “Sports”

The City of Pitt Meadows is developing a pedestrian and cycling master plan. At the Oct. 23 council-in-committee meeting Hailey Steiger and Andreas Rohl of Urban Systems gave a progress report of the master plan thus far. (Rohl is the bicycle director in Copenhagen, Denmark and took a one-year sabbatical to Vancouver.) The fifth and final phase of the plan is to submit to council the findings from the research done the past six months. The report

Ike de Boer, City of Pitt Meadows engineering service coordinator, looked at a report on the Pedestrian and Cycling Master Plan. will include strategies, costs, and short-, medium-, and long-term goals, for walking and cycling infrastructure. Since May, the City has hosted

public events, distributed surveys, and had discussions with various groups to learn about and understand the issues around cycling. “Most people are satisfied with

what Pitt Meadows is doing. The biggest concern is safety,” said Ike de Boer, City of Pitt Meadows engineering service co-ordinator. “Recently when we were redoing Kennedy Road we added an off-road pathway, which is paved,” said de Boer. Pitt Meadows has an extensive network of trails, paths, sidewalks, and bike lanes. However, about 85 per cent of Pitt Meadows residents use a car to get to work, while only four per cent walk or bike to work. Another initiative taken by the City requires builders to provide bike parking when a new development is constructed within the community. “In the end, what we are trying to do is make it more attractive, more safe, and create a complete multi-modal system for all users,” he added.

International competition

Frankfurt opened eyes for aspiring young dancers

Kiana Serr and Darby Steeves returned from the IDO world dance championships with medals.

Serr estimated she was able to be a tourist for “one day and a couple more hours.”

Silver lining for Steeves

by Troy Landreville tlandreville@mrtimes.com

A trip to Frankfurt, Germany early last month bore fruit, in the form of hardware, for Kiana Serr, Darby Steeves, and their Canadian national teammates. Canadian dancers, including the two local 16 year olds, were in fine form at the IDO World Dance Championships. Put on by the International Dance Organization, the competition saw dancers from across the world perform in jazz, modern, and ballet. Canada was split into two teams: B.C. and Ontario. Serr, who attends Grade 11 at Maple Ridge Secondary, was a member of the B.C. senior ballet teams that won gold in large group (Allegro in Two Parts) and small group (Breathe). B.C. defeated Germany in large group and beat out a handful of other teams, including Ontario, in the small group competition. Meanwhile, Serr, Steeves, and the B.C. large group jazz team came away with a silver medal for its performance of Run Boy Run. Overseeing the B.C. dancers were choreographers Danielle Gardner (So You Think You Can Dance Canada) and Danielle and Josh Beamish (MOVE: the Company). Serr’s mom Kirsten said B.C.’s showing in the ballet World Cup event showed the quality of dance in the Lower Mainland. “In the ballet competition, anything Team B.C. entered, they took gold in,” Kirsten said. “It says a lot about ballet in British Columbia. You look at the list of countries and it’s just astonishing. It didn’t matter which category, if it was a solo, a duo, a group… whatever it was, Team B.C. in ballet took gold.” #4 DARIAN DURANT

As a country Canada won 16 gold medals, double that of the next best finishers, Poland and Slovenia, who came away with eight golds apiece. Serr described the experience as “really cool.” “It felt really good,” she said. “It felt amazing. I wasn’t that nervous because I couldn’t believe it, quite yet. You know that feeling where you’re kind of not sure this is actually happening? But I normally don’t get nervous for stage. It’s not really who I am.” Serr embraced the opportunity to meet other dancers from B.C. Prior to Frankfurt, she performed with two of her future teammates in Ballet BC/ Alberta’s productions of The Nutcracker and enjoyed their friendship as a result. With the other dancers in her group,

Serr had seen them at competitions over the years, but hadn’t made their acquaintance until joining the team. Serr and three other members of Tri-City Dance Centre in Coquitlam danced for Canada’s senior team in Frankfurt. “It was neat to meet all the other girls,” Serr said. “It was really nice to finally meet some of these people and work in a team setting. You don’t get an opportunity like that.” Serr didn’t have a lot of time for sightseeing. She danced throughout the first day and spent most of the second day at the theatre, supported her chaperone’s daughter who was performing. She managed to squeeze a couple hours of seeing the city on the third day but by the fourth day, she was back at the theatre.

Steeves said her learning experience in Frankfurt was invaluable. “I thought I knew so much about dance before this, but it just opened my eyes to so many more opportunities,” said Steeves, a Grade 12 student at Thomas Haney Secondary. “It really renewed my passion for dance.” For the B.C. dancers, the colloquialism “strength in numbers” held true. “In numbers, we had many more [than Ontario],” Steeves said. “Their formation had the minimal number. In certain categories like jazz, we had more numbers and we had what they [the judges] were looking for, I think.” Steeves is accustomed to dancing as part of a large group. “At the beginning, it was kind of weird because I didn’t know anybody but we warmed up to each other pretty quick,” Steeves said. Heading into the competition, B.C.’s jazz dancers had a mind-set about how they would fare. “I would say we achieved our goals,” Steeves said. The provincial jazz team performed Run Boy Run in the medal round. The three-minute dance was an interpretation of a nightmare belonging to the group’s lone male dancer, Alfonso Banzon. Steeves was also part of Canada’s modern dance team that ended up eighth, just out of qualifying. Steeves had plenty of time for sightseeing. She performed Oct. 6 and 7, but prior to then, had a fair amount of down time. “Most of the time I watched [the competition] because I love to support my team, but my mom [Maureen] and I took the train into Frankfurt twice and saw a lot,” Steeves said. “I was very happy with what we saw.”

Need help with your Home Renovation?

Cancer June 21-July 22: Romance, adventure, creativity, beauty, pleasure, sports and games fill the weeks ahead. Not this week, but the next two, could bring an old flame. Judge whether this is worth taking up again. What were the original problems? Your energy and charisma ride high Sunday – but don’t start any important new relationships (old flames excluded) or projects before Nov. 26. Chase money, buy and sell Monday to Wednesday – but don’t buy big or expensive things. Travel, communications lure you late week (Thursday best). Be patient: answers can take a long time. Home, family Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Lie low, rest and think Sunday. Your energy and charisma bounce back Monday to Wednesday. You attract admiration and ride a wee winning streak these three days. (It would be stronger if this month were not so domestic and “ending-oriented.” Still, it’s probably enough to put you over the top – or rescue you. Obama’s a Leo.) Still, until Nov. 26, it’s not a good idea to begin anything significant, buy anything important, nor initiate a relationship. An old love affair or a favourite child might return – it’s good, but short. Chase money late week: but buy nothing important. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Start/buy/love nothing new before Nov. 26. Until then, you’re not seeing all elements of a situation or project. This leads to minor delays or mistakes with ongoing ventures, but proves deadly to new ones, if started during this interval. Do old or ongoing things only, especially in home and career zones. You might revisit an old haunt. Sunday’s useless but fun – enjoy! Retreat, lie low Monday to Wednesday. Re-examine all planned action: any flaws? Your energy and charisma surge upward late week. A career-money plum awaits your pluck! Buy NOTHING significant Saturday.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The accent lies on depths, mysteries, lifestyle changes, sexual urges, large finances, partnership finances, and commitment. It’s an all-or-nothing time. New relationships (formed in the last year) either grow deeper, or break apart. Your subconscious rises to the surface, letting you understand or glimpse your motives, true desires, even your destiny. Start nothing new before Nov. 26. An old flame might “appear” in the ten days ahead; after that, a former lust object or financial or lifestyle idea might return. If good then, good again. Romance colours MondayWednesday. Taurus April 20-May 20: The general accent lies on relationships, opportunities and challenges, cooperation and disunity, allies and enemies. Relocation might appeal. However, do not start anything important, especially in these areas, before Nov. 26. Until then, a relationship from the past might re-appear and grow important, presenting you with a choice. Safest approach: don’t make any decisions before late November. Sunday’s for superficial things. Focus on home, security and property Monday to Wednesday (but don’t buy anything). Romance, creativity visit late week. Chores, Saturday: be safe. Gemini May 21-June 20: Start nothing new before Nov. 26. An opportunity (and/or relationship) from the past might re-appear in the days ahead, but by next week the things returning are chores. You might have to redo something at your place of employment, or fill in at a former position. Watch schedules and supplies: disruptions and delays are likely, so plan well ahead, and have a back-up arrangement. Buy nothing Sunday. (It would prove useless.) Travel, communicate Monday-Wednesday. Be home, attend to family, property, security late week. Romance, Saturday? (Better in evening, night.)

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: You might feel ambitious Sunday, but your efforts would be wasted – relax. Now to Nov. 26, do not launch any new enterprises, whether in business,practical or family affairs,or love. They would tend to run in circles and never “finish.” Old ventures, circumstances might re-appear in the next three weeks, especially in intellectual, learning, travel or governmental zones. If these are obligations, handle them. If opportunities, examine once, then grab ‘em. A former money opening might return next week or the next. Social delights arrive Monday-Tuesday. Retreat, contemplate late week. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Your energy, charisma and pizzazz ride a wave of joy to late month – enjoy it! But don’t start new projects of any kind, especially in financial, sexual and social spheres. Stick to the on-going, or reprise past, abandoned projects – these can succeed. Your heightened magnetism might attract someone from your past, particularly next week. Watch for mistakes, check your bank account, repeat instructions or phone numbers. You’re ambitious Monday-Wednesday: but remember, nothing new. Social joys, popularity, light romance and delicious optimism visit you late week. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Lie low, rest and contemplate. Your energy reserves are low. Take care of your “nest” (and nest egg). DON’T start new projects or relationships before Nov. 26. Past contacts and ongoing obligations/work roles are best. A former relationship could appear – good, all things being equal, before Nov. 14; not so good for love, good for therapy and confessions Nov. 14 onward. Someone could make your heart rise happily late week. Research or rest Sunday. Your intellect awakens Monday to Wednesday. Ambitions, authorities figure prominently Thursday/Friday: behave!

Nov. 4 - 10, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Wishes can come true over the next three weeks – old wishes. At least one or two joys from the past will appear – a former light, fun romance, a past group of friends, a formerly planned then abandoned social, convention or political event, a former bright plan. You’re happy! But DO NOT start new projects or relationships, especially in these zones before Nov. 26. Relax, worship Sunday. Mysteries, financial and sexual urges appear MondayWednesday. DO NOT commit. Travel, intellectual and legal areas are highlighted late week. Saturday’s ambitious: night time’s best. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Your career, ambitions, status and reputation are highlighted this month. (You seldom care about reputation because you’re usually innocent of bad motives.) A former career role might return. In all areas, avoid starting new projects, plans or relationships before Nov. 26. Instead, stick with ongoing situations, and protect these from mistakes, misunderstandings, missed meetings or supply shortages. A former friend might return briefly, to point the way. Exciting meetings, relationships fill early week (not Sunday). Mysteries and sexual, financial urges visit late week. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your dreams, plans and intellect turn backward into the land of revision this week to Nov. 26 – start nothing important before that date. Instead, address missing factors, read and research, and stick with ongoing projects and relationships – or reprise past situations and links. Sunday’s sweet, romantic, pleasurable, but with little result. Tackle routine chores Monday to Wednesday. Your relationships, good and difficult, fill Thursday/Friday (Thursday better). An investmentproperty deal, or sexy-security attraction, lights up mid-to-late week. timstephens@shaw.ca
