The Scott brothers are going to be renovating 20 homes and they said they would love for some of those to be right here in their hometown. “We have a huge following in Maple Ridge from growing up there,” said Drew, who grew up with his parents and brothers on a five-acre horse farm on the edge of Golden Ears Provincial Park. “The horse trail ran right through our property,” he added. They grew up destined to be stars. “When we turned seven my dad said ‘Happy Birthday boys! Get a job,’ said Drew. “One of the first things we did on

the entertainment side was being clowns for the Maple Ridge parks and rec, and that really helped with our creative side,” he explained. “I thought it was great growing up in Maple Ridge, because we are close to the city, there’s that buzz of the big city, but it’s a close-knit community and encouraged us to explore all of our passions, which include entertainment, and of course, real estate,” explained Drew. The brothers graduated from

Drew and Jonathan Scott are in town casting for their two Canadian reality shows – Property Brothers and Buying & Selling with the Property Brothers. The identical twins dressed up as clowns for Maple Ridge parks and rec. when they were in elementary school (inset above).

Thomas Haney Secondary in the mid 90s. And things exploded from there. “I direct and Jonathan is an illusionist and we didn’t want to be starving artists so we thought as we were just coming out of high school this real estate thing could be a great way to make some money to fund our creative endeavors,” he said. They enrolled as full-time students in University of Calgary (both on fullride scholarships), and bought their first house with a $250 down payment, next to the university. It was a $200,000 home. “Back in those days Drew would actually do some of the work with me, he would do the flooring and stuff like that,” chimed in Jonathan. “Yup, back then, I actually got my hands dirty,” added Drew. After graduation Jonathan went on to Las Vegas and Drew moved back to B.C. Drew was approached for My Dream Home. The network originally wanted a malefemale host combo, but when they heard Drew had a brother who does the same thing, they changed their tune. My Dream Home became Property Brothers. Five years later they are celebrities with three hit TV shows on two networks. Casting is happening right now for both Property Brothers and Buying & Selling with the Property Brothers. In Property Brothers, Drew is a real estate expert who scouts neglected homes and negotiates the purchases, and Jonathan is a licensed contractor who gets his hands dirty in the renovation process. “In Property Brothers we are helping people find their dream home through a fixer-upper. So we will take something that looks really run down and turn it into a beautiful custom renovated property for the homeowners. “In Buying and Selling we are helping people who need to sell their house to move on to their next place... so we are there to maximize the potential of their current home, and to sell at top dollar and move on to the next place,” said Drew. They help homeowners take the next step up the property ladder. Asked why they are so popular, the answer from both of them: “We take the job seriously, but not ourselves.” To apply for one of the reality shows visit facebook.com/PropertyBrothers.

He voted against his party, he challenged his leader, and he often annoyed his municipal counterparts. After two terms as the member of the legislative assembly for Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows, Michael Sather will not run again, after making his mark as a strong defender of the environment and farmland, and a politician who has learned to stand up to his own party, the B.C. New Democratic Party. Sather is always pushing the edge and challenging authority – including challenging the NDP from within, said Craig Speirs, long-time friend and fellow party insider. Sather was first elected as the MLA for Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows in 2005, beating the incumbent Ken Stewart. Stewart ran against him again in 2009 and lost by just 274 votes.

Swan protects egg-less nest

Two swans have taken up residence on North Alouette River. by Sylver McLaren On a sunny Saturday afternoon Rick Hammer, the commodore for the Pitt Meadows Paddling Club, took a boat trip down the North Alouette River looking for a couple of resident swans. “Last year there was an issue when the public would paddle down there and get attacked by the male swan,” Hammer explained. This time the male swan flew directly towards the outboard and tried to hit the edges with his wing. “He exhibited anxiety even though they were not protecting an egg,” said Hammer, adding that he found a five-foot diameter nest on a low dock between Harris Road and the Pitt River, west of the paddling club.

Rick Hammer, (right), the commodore for the Pitt Meadows Paddling Club, warns people about getting too close to the two white swans that have taken up residence in the North Alouette River. He said he hasn’t seen them in a couple weeks and suggested that they may have found a less intrusive area to nest.

Our View

All charged up

Local municipal authorities are moving ahead on offering places for electric vehicles to stop and charge up. Along with provincial initiatives, we’re going from a dearth of charging stations to a sudden abundance, something that can only be good for those already driving – or considering buying – all-electric cars. An interesting point for those who don’t have electric cars is the price: the electricity will be free at some stations, and available at cost at others. If it cost the same amount to fill an electric car’s batteries as it does to fuel a Scan this conventional car at a page with gas pump, we’d be up in arms about it. But as it turns out, the dollar value is nominal. It’s estimated that an electric re-fuelling will use about $2 worth of electricity. Even with the shortened range of electric vehicles compared to conventional, that’s a pittance. Providing a place where vehicles can get a relatively quick topping-up of their batteries is a good service that will start to reduce emissions that are not only causing global warming, but are damaging to human health. In the contentious arguing over climate change, it is often forgotten that air pollution, including that from cars, is still linked to lung cancer and asthma. Welcome as they are, the vehicle charging services will be successful enough that more people will start buying electric cars, and that will get the private sector more involved. We’ll really know the electric vehicle movement is up and running when gas stations, coffee shops, or burger joints start installing their own electric chargers out front. When there are private options, where you can get an electric boost with a latte or a side of fries, that’s when municipal stations should either retire their charging stations, or start charging for the power. When you can make money off it, you know it’s here to stay. – M.C.

Pitt Meadows

Volunteer asks critics to unite

Dear Editor, I wish to address the opinion, questions, criticism, insults, and challenge expressed by a previous writer [A lot of good changes in Pitt Meadows, Feb. 19 Letters, TIMES]. I was informed no insurance could be claimed for a stolen office chair. Three freedom-of-information requests later revealed the City was wrong – $3,333.32 tax dollars recovered. Why did an insurance business owner/mayor and a hundred-thousand-dollar-salary staff member not know this? Letters explaining how our taxes are spent, mismanaged, and wasted, putting residents millions in debt, are informative. He calls others “bleating whiners,” then tell others to delete their personal insults. He encourages support of councils and staff. Not a problem – but not greedy incompetents with personal or political agendas who forget taxpayers, their employer. Re: meaningful community contributions, will these qualify? He is a 25-year resident, I 60 years.

Along with many others, I have volunteered time, money, equipment, and labour over 37 years for 2,000 children, 600 young adults, and seniors. I’ve initiated, organized, or participated in the Terry Fox Run, Canada Day, Pitch-In, Pitt Meadows Day, and parades, swimming, and school events. I helped organize seniors Christmas dinners 13 years, Harris Road brick building excavation, promote construction of Davie Jones school, and a BMX park area. I have contacted federal MP re an ARDSA grant. I’ve been a president and member of a Pitt Meadows ratepayers group, sat on Maple Ridge Hospital, health, and library boards, and can add more, if required. Can the writer of that Feb. 19 letter please tell us his meaningful community contributions? Then get in touch. Together with other concerned residents, maybe we can make Pitt Meadows a better, less expensive place to live. Ken Joyner, Pitt Meadows

Where Am ‘i’?

Angel saving heritage buildings

Dear Editor, I read with interest that Dave Bazett found it disgusting that the Bank of Montreal on Maple Crescent was featured in your “Where Am ‘i’?” contest, and that his reason was because it is currently owned by one of the Hells Angels [‘i’ found disgusting, Mar. 14 Letters, TIMES].

What you’re telling us on Facebook

Local schools are short of money. Any suggestions on how to fix the problem? “First things first. Why are they short of money?” – Claus Andrup “Well, I assume this means extras are being cut to make up for it. And this is why I’m seriously considering home schooling my kids, so their education isn’t dependent on the dollar.” – Katie Clunn

Share your views. Like us on Facebook at: www.facebook.com/MapleRidgePittMeadowsTimes

Instead on dwelling on the fact it is owned by one of them, he should dwell on the fact that it was originally built in 1911, and burned in the big fire in 1916, and does have historical value for that reason. It was originally the Bank of Hamilton and the centre of the commerical area of Hammond. In case Mr. Bazett doesn’t know, there are many buildings owned by the Hells Angels in the Lower Mainland, and the reason this one and the old phone office, as well as another one in Hammond, are owned by the same person is because he was concerned they not be torn down, as developers were trying to buy them, to tear them down and build condos in their place. Although I don’t agree with what a lot of the Hells Angels do, I applaud the man who did what he thought he had to do to save some of the heritage of Hammond. If he hadn’t done it, there would no heritage buildings left in Hammond at all . I think people should look at this building in that light, and as far as I’m concerned, we should have more people like him who are concerned with saving our heritage.

Ferry terminal

Optional potential

Dear Editor, A lot of us boating and fishing enthusiasts in the Maple Ridge area were told that TransLink owns the river road Albion Ferry Terminal. We were wondering if it is possible to turn this property into a boat launch and parking area, possibly with more parking. We think this property could be converted to a Rocky Point-style marine Letters area and to the Editor boat launch. At present, we only have three options for launching larger (20-foot-plus) pleasure and fishing boats into the Fraser River. One is in Mission – too far away. Haney Marine launch is too small, and affected by low tides. The third, Pitt Meadows Marina, is on Pitt River, again too far, and launching is limited by tide. A city the size of Maple Ridge should not be outdone by the likes of Mission and Pitt Meadows. We don’t mind paying to launch our boats from a safe facility, and we think we deserve one. Another plus may be increased visits and spending from local area tourism. Don’t forget that this area is home to year-round freshwater and saltwater fishing. G. Cole, Maple Ridge

Dear Editor, I wonder who will die first, as a result of the foolish closure of the Kitsilano coast guard base. Will it be a Liberal, a Conservative, or a New Democrat? Will it be a tourist from another country? It doesn’t matter who it is or what their political beliefs are, they will have been someone’s son, daughter, mother, or father. The person(s) responsible for closing this base should be held accountable. That includes the MPs and ministers who had the ability to speak up but chose not to. Sean Orcutt, Maple Ridge

The Social Chicks

S

by Lori Graham

omething we know for sure from our workshops is that participants love walking away with little nuggets of information. We’ve had lots passed on to us, and now it’s time to pay it forward. • Secure your profile names – when you’re just starting out, it’s sometimes overwhelming just to set up one social media profile. But you’ll thank yourself later when all of your social media profiles have the same URL. For instance, our website address is www.thesocialchicks.ca, our Facebook address is www.facebook.com/thesocialchicks and our Twitter address is www. twitter.com/thesocialchicks. Why is this important? It simply makes it easier for marketing and recall purposes. A really easy way to find out what name is available for the various digital profiles is by typing your preferred name into a handy little tool called www.namechk.com • Provide value – in our workshops we often talk about the 80/20 rule. Eighty per cent of your social media posts should focus on value and 20 per cent of your posts can focus on promotion. When we say value, we’re talking about asking questions, providing information, and networking – all of this helps to build your online community. To play it safe, you may even want to consider 90/10 instead of 80/20. • Give credit and props – it’s the expected social media etiquette. When you share posts and pictures, let people know where it came from. Building relationships in business is all about people getting to know, like, and trust you. You won’t be doing yourself any favours if you’re taking credit for other people’s great work. And, when you see something you love on a social media profile, give props.

• Share (with care!) – when you’re sharing a link, make sure you click on the link to track it back to its source before you share it. Even if it’s from someone that you trust. Links can get messed up, and the last thing you want is your post linking to an inappropriate source. • Be real – make sure you’re the same person online as you are offline. If we’ve only met you online via your Facebook page and then have the opportunity to meet you at a face-to-face networking event, we want to be expanding this relationship with the same person. Don’t be a faker! • Be responsive – we love our smartphones and encourage anyone getting into social media for business purposes to set up notifications on their smartphone. When someone posts a question or comment to your Facebook page, you will want to be able to see what they post and determine if it requires an immediate response or can wait until you’re back in your office. • Be social – this probably sounds like a silly tip, but being social is often overlooked. Don’t fall into the trap of pushing out content without engaging with your fans and followers. It’s called “social” media for a reason. Have fun with it. • Listen and never stop listening – last tip and one of the most important. It’s important to find out where the conversations are taking place online about your brand, your industry, your partners, your clients, and your competition. Why? Because having this information is what will make you a social media rock star! Have questions? Send them to thesocialchicks@gmail.com. The Social Chicks offer their free social media information sessions with the Chamber of Commerce Serving Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows (www. ridgemeadowschamber.com) on the last Thursday of every month from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Our next workshop focuses on Twitter. Contact the chamber at 604-463-3366 to register.

Bar ordered demolished A fire damaged property on 224th Street is beyond repair. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Maple Ridge council has ordered the former Don Cherry’s Sports Bar and Grill to be demolished. The District’s bylaw officer, Liz Holitzki, told council that the property at 224th Street and 116th Avenue, is so damaged that it should be demolished. The bar was earlier the the Gourmet Hideaway but about three years ago opened as the first Don Cherry’s franchise in western Canada. However, the building went up in flames in late August 2011. At the time, the restaurant had been closed for some time. The building has been inspected by the manager of inspections and by the fire department. According to a District report to council, the building has deteriorated structurally beyond the point that it could be occupied. Combustible material was found within the

rains, brawn, and beauty. That is what a 26-year-old Pitt Meadows Secondary graduate and kinesiology degree holder has. Kyla Liva has been fitness training for 10 years – three of them at her own Optimum Training Studio. by Sylver McLaren Liva will take three of her clients – Jessica Postma, Alana Severinski, and Tiffany Garrigus – to the Western Canadian Fitness Competition in Kelowna. If they’re able to raise enough money for the travel, accommodations, and entry fees, the three women will put their training to the test in May and compete. “We’ve known each other for 10 years, but this is the first time that I have trained them,” said Liva. “Posing is a huge part of this. No one will look twice until you go BAM,” she said while striking a sexy pose. They will don their bikinis for a car wash fundraiser on Saturday, April 27 at Kirmac Collision at the corner of Dewdney Trunk Road and 228th Street from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Cars will be $10 and trucks, vans, and SUVs will be $15.

Disneyland definitely is the one of the greatest places on earth, if you can believe the stories two Maple Ridge kids are telling. The siblings spent seven days in California – including a visit to this giant amusement park, as well as California Adventure Park and Universal Studios – with their parents Norm and Sheryl Jones (yes, the Sheryl Jones who is an advertising representative with The TIMES). The kids were there with the rest of their clan to celebrate their grandparents’ 50th wedding anniversary. Eight-year-old Jake (above) insisted on posing with Goofy when having his picture taken with a copy of his hometown newspaper, The TIMES, while his younger sister Christina, age five, preferred to have her picture taken with Minnie Mouse.

Kidney and two hearts appreciated Philip Hertslet’s body has been put through the spin cycle on several occasions, but he’s still with us, thanks to the sacrifices of complete strangers. The 62-year-old Pitt Meadows resident, whose health forced him to retire from his job as a tour bus driver, has had two heart transplants – the most recent in November 2011 – and a kidney transplant, all in the past 23 years. Hertslet, who admitted lifestyle choices such as smoking and drinking when he was younger hurt his health, is grateful for the organ donors who have kept him alive. “It’s just unbelievable,” Hertslet said. “Every day you wake up and say, ‘Whoa.’ A new day, still awake, and as far as the thankfulness to the organ donors, there’s no words to express how grateful we are.” Hertslet’s health issues started in the summer of 1986. His first heart attack lasted 12 hours. He spent 10 days in Surrey Memorial Hospital. Three months passed before he was allowed to return to work. In January 1990, he spent three months in Vancouver General Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit, waiting for an available heart. That March he had a heart transplant, then spent six months at the GF Strong Rehabilitation Centre. “I was in an electric wheelchair for a while because I wasn’t strong enough to propel a normal one,” Hertslet recalled. The surgery was so lengthy it affected Hertslet’s kidneys, forcing a year of dialysis treatments. “They warned me about that ahead of time,” Hertslet said, “that there was a possibility that your kidneys might fail. Generally they come back. Well, mine didn’t.” He moved to a basement suite next door to his sister in Winfield, B.C., so she could be nearby. There, he got back on his feet, hiking in the mountains and leaving his old lifestyle behind him. In April of 1991, he had a kidney transplant, and by 1993 he was healthy enough to return to work. A few years later, however, he lifted a suitcase the wrong way, and suffered a herniated disc in his back: “That basically retired me. My back just

Philip Hertslet, 62, of Pitt Meadows has had two hearts and a kidney transplanted since 1990. Troy Landreville/TIMES

C y WATER MAIN FLUSHING

The City of Pitt Meadows Public Works Department will be flushing water mains throughout the municipality for approximately twelve weeks beginning March 4, 2013. During this time there may be a temporary drop in water pressure or a noticeable discolouration in tap water. To correct problems with milky water, open the cold tap slightly to bleed air from the water lines. If you experience problems with dirty water, turn on an outside tap and let it run until the water clears. The City thanks residents for their patience during this routine maintenance of the water mains. If there are any questions or concerns please call 604-465-2434.

Where am ‘i’? The ‘i’ from The TIMES sign is “missing” and we’re asking readers to tell us where it is each week in these photos. It will pop up in different locations around the community. Like us on Facebook (facebook.com/ MapleRidgePittMeadows Times) and tell us where this picture was taken, and you could win. Anyone who answers on Facebook before 9 a.m. Monday is automatically entered to win the weekly or grand prize draws. Have fun. Most people recognized that last week’s picture was taken at a park, but some were stumped as to which park. The right answer was Harris Road Park in Pitt Meadows, and the i was in the bleachers. Congratulations to the winner Jaime Libby Waddell who identified the correct place.

Special to The TIMES

It is a wide, wondrous world we live in, full of fascinating cultures, foods, by Chris Conroy religions, languages, art and Chris Conroy is a librarian countless exciting possibilwith the Maple Ridge Library ities, and your library is a great place to start exploring. The Maple Ridge Japanese Language School will join the library on Saturday, April 6, 2 p.m., to celebrate the blooming of beautiful cherry trees across the Lower Mainland and across Japan. Cherry Blossom Festival activities like basic origami and calligraphy lessons are planned for the whole family, and everyone can enjoy a cup of green tea, sample Japanese snacks and rejoice in the arrival of spring! If multicultural talk puts you in the mood for travel, your library is the place for up-to-date travel guides and histories, documentaries on DVD, and travel magazines, both in print format and on your computer or tablet through our new magazine database, Zinio. Also online, Global Road Warrior offers current information on countries from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, covering travel, communication and cultural issues useful for travellers, students, and business. If you prefer to do all your travelling from the comfort of your armchair, the library carries non-fiction from the most popular travel writers, and fiction that goes everywhere from the streets of Cairo and the museums of Paris to the Kalahari and the Maritimes. The Fraser Valley Regional Library (FVRL) system also carries an impressive collection of foreign films, many of which have been part of Maple Ridge Library’s ongoing world film series. The program is on holiday to make room for our current series of documentaries on health, but will return early in the fall. Search our online catalogue to view and request films from all of FVRL’s 24 libraries. Finally, language learning is just a mouse click away, with FVRL’s Mango Languages, a fun and innovative online resource that combines everyday conversation skill development with memory building strategies. The program teaches many foreign languages, including Japanese, Russian, Mandarin, French, and Spanish and also includes English lessons for non-English speakers in languages like Polish, Korean, Arabic, Mandarin, and Cantonese. Other language-learning resources include bilingual dictionaries and a range of books, eBooks, and CDs, and you will also find a large multilingual collection across FVRL’s libraries. To discover your wider world, visit the library or connect with us online.

Streep’s Thatcher puts finish on Golden Ears series Britain’s only female prime minister is the subject of a film being shown at The ACT on Monday.

Get tickets with

Meryl Streep stars as the Iron Lady, Margaret Thatcher, in a film that will be shown at The ACT on March 25.

3-19040 Lougheed Highway, Pitt Meadows 604-760-1265 REVIVAL RALLY WITH DARREN STOTT → March 22, 7pm & 23, 10:30am GOOD FRIDAY NIGHT SERVICE → March 29, 8pm ( ) EASTER SUNDAY COMMUNION CELEBRATION → March 31, 8:30 & 11:30am ( ) & 2pm (English) www.soojungchurch.org www.vancouverrevivalcentre.org

The Golden Ears Movie Series ends its season with a film about the controversial Margaret Thatcher. The Iron Lady (2011, UK) reunites director Phyllida Lloyd (Mamma Mia!) with actress Meryl Streep in an intimate portrait of British political icon Thatcher, the first and thus far only female Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Written by award-winning screenwriter Abi Morgan, the film offers a look at the life of the political powerhouse, her rise to leadership,

and the price she paid. Arguably one of the 20th century’s most famous and influential women, Thatcher came from nowhere to smash through barriers of gender and class to make her mark in a male dominated world. Unconventional in every sense, her voice, her attire, and her gender made her the unlikeliest of candidates to represent a nation. After marrying Denis Thatcher (Jim Broadbent) and retraining as a barrister, Thatcher reinvented herself, and with the help of political strategist Gordon Reece, contrived a posh upgrade to her former accent. A determined woman, Thatcher softened her voice significantly to sound less impertinent, subsequently helping her to get elected into office – and stay elected.

LOVE LIVES (no matter what)

Golden Ears United Church Pitt Meadows United Church

Playing a well-known public figure in an age when audio and video recordings exist is a formidable challenge, but Streep nails it. While there was some controversy about casting an American as a British Prime Minister, Streep is known for her ability to imitate foreign and domestic accents. Her performance as the former prime minister and unlikely heroine triumphing against the odds scored her the best actress Oscar at the 84th Academy Awards. The Iron Lady, presented by the Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows Arts Council, will be shown at The ACT, 11944 Haney Pl., on March 25, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale by calling 604-476-2787, by going to www. theactmapleridge.org, or by going to The ACT ticket centre in person.

On the Fly by Jeff Weltz

A fly fishing instructor and outdoor writer, Jeff has fished the area since the early 1970s. Contact him at fishingnewsman@gmail.com

Vanity offends The oldest tradition in sport fishing is competition. Competition dates back to our hunter-gather ancestors, when the best fisherman not only had more fish than he and his family could eat, his skill also earned him a respected position as one of the chief providers for his tribe. A problem with competition arises when human vanity enters the picture and a respected position moves from being viewed as an honour to that of a personal possession. • More online: www.mrtimes.com, click on “Sports”

He spent the next three years in Kamloops before splitting the 2007/08 season with the Blazers and Regina Pats. Bartley finished his major junior career with the Pats, scoring 15 goals and 46 points to go with 97 minutes in penalties in 2008/09. Over the next three years he was a hockey gypsy, suiting up for the AHL’s Providence Bruins (10 games in 2008/09), the Utah Grizzlies of the East Coast league (21 contests in 2009/10), back to the AHL with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers (eight games in 2009/10) off to Sweden in 2010/11, suiting up for 52 contests with Rogle BK, then making his home in Milwaukee for the full 2011/12 season and most of the 2012/13 campaign. All the while, Bartley never lost sight of his ultimate goal. “Growing up I always thrived to be better and not just settle for doing well,” Bartley said. “It’s been a bumpy path to the NHL but success isn’t a straight line up. It’s been a wild ride but things have really came together for me in the past couple years.” artley isn’t the only former RMMHA player on the Preds’ roster. Right winger Brandon Yip has played 24 games for Nashville this year, scoring two goals and four assists. Asked which Predator has helped him the most, Bartley answered, “I couldn’t nail it down to one specific guy exactly.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness hit a peak now to late April. Recent delays and “decision benders” are over, so march ahead, start important projects, pursue love, tackle chores that formerly intimidated you. Show your strength! Sunday/Monday are for work, health concerns, and aiding dependents. Relationships might build to a cruel peak Tuesday p.m. – former resentment breaks the surface. NOT a good day to challenge authority. Feelings and loyalties are still a jumble Wednesday morning, so step lightly. Secrets, sex, large finances Thursday night to Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: You face a month of relative solitude and rest, Taurus. Retreat, study options, form plans, deal with commercial agents, government agencies, head office, charities and institutions. Sunday to Tuesday float a romantic atmosphere around you, but it might not bring success. (Sunday night’s your best shot.) A secret, a wound (emotional, mental, etc.) or a conflict with the law could rise to an uncomfortable level Tuesday. Avoid a fight. A philosophical attitude conquers violence. Tackle chores midweek. Thursday eve to Saturday brings relationships, challenges and opportunities. Gemini May 21-June 20: Wishes come true. Expand, seek. Your popularity rises. Optimism, entertainment, light romance and plain fun fill your days – better in April than March. Quietly sink into domestic chores, family love, real estate, etc., Sunday to Tuesday. Midweek lays a transparent cloak of beauty over everything. But it’s an odd interval. First, sex and friendship conflict Tuesday, might spark a cruel fight. Then Wednesday holds mixed luck in love and creativity. Then Thursday brings a spectacular series of exciting meetings – but they go nowhere! (They might, later.) Work, health Friday/Saturday.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Be ambitious during the weeks ahead, Cancer. It won’t be easy this week, as you might have to gain the co-operation of another whose natural inclination is to dominate your goals, or demand a say in what those goals are. You can get this person (or agency) onside by showing how your ambitions will increase their security. Travel, errands, communications, paperwork and details fill Sunday to Tuesday afternoon. Bed realistic in legal or travel matters. Home and family fill midweek. Careful Tuesday: avoid fights. Thursday eve to Saturday bring romance, beauty and pleasure. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: A wise, mellow mood flows over you now and for the weeks ahead. You’ll succeed in far travel, legal matters, higher education, cultural venues, intellectual projects, broadcasting and media, and love. You could taste fame. These good things will encounter interference from work or health demands now through March 31. This conflict could cause an angry reaction Tuesday: be diplomatic. Do the work now, but keep the joy of your hopes and plans in your heart. Chase money Sunday to Tuesday. Midweek’s talkative, bright, happy! To home (and success there) Thursday eve to Saturday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The weeks ahead hold mysteries, subconscious urges, sexual desire, significant financial actions (investment, debt reduction) potential lifestyle changes, commitment, and the need for research or health diagnosis. These are more significant than in most March/Aprils, as your actions now can strongly affect the next two years. However, the rest of March erects barriers to these very things. Good, for the barriers/problems highlight what needs to be done. Watch Tuesday for such a problem: contain any anger over it. Your energy, charisma shine Sunday to Tuesday. Chase money midweek.

March 24 - 30, 2013

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The weeks ahead feature relationships – some of the most significant of this decade, perhaps of your life. But the “easy road forward” in relating won’t occur until April. These last days of March erect several barriers to: co-operation, love, partnership, marriage vows, relocation, dealings with the public, and general opportunities. You can face and challenge these barriers in March (a huge one Tuesday: reject self-pride) and fight for a bond (new or old). Or you can wait until April, and then attempt to join with another, etc. (October-born? Wait for April.) Love looms. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Lots of projects and initiatives arise now through April in work and health. However, you will tend to talk against these changes this week, and you’ll be partly justified: technological upgrading and mergers or partnerships will be “still-born.” Even so, developments on the work scene are significant, affect at least the two years ahead. Diplomacy Tuesday: being overbearing will create tomorrow’s enemies. Oh, and don’t stop working! Your popularity rises, social joys come, Sunday to Tuesday. Retreat midweek: rest, think. Your energy, charisma surge Thursday night to Saturday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The weeks ahead bring romance, creative genius, pleasure, beauty, charming kids, speculative success – you’ll ride a winning streak – and a significant one, as what you create or the feelings you express can affect your life for a long time. But all these run into strong barriers in March. Be patient, wait for April’s gifts. (Otherwise, Tuesday’s refusal could trigger cruelty.) Sunday to Tuesday feature career, ambition, relations with higher-ups. Behave! Midweek brings happiness, boosts your popularity, might spark love. Retreat, rest and contemplate Friday/Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Domestic concerns fill the next few weeks, Cap. You need a sturdy launch pad for all your ambitions: a strong family, a good spouse, a “proper” neighbourhood provide such a pad. This entire area experiences some disruption from 2011 to 2018, so use the present cycle (to late April) to strengthen this domestic zone. In March, you’ll accomplish this through struggle and imposing your will (e.g., Tuesday, when a fight’s possible). In April, it will be easier, without opposition. During this 2011-2018 period, you’ll very likely buy a new home, or invest in land. Joy, late week! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Communications, short trips, casual acquaintances, paperwork, details – these fill the weeks ahead. You could experience some conflict between these and your “secret life” in the 8 days ahead. For instance, gossip reveals your little peccadillo, or loyalty to a boss prevents you from taking that trip to Coney Island. These conflicts might cause embarrassment, anger Tuesday. All will be easier next week. Sexual temptations, financial urges fill Sunday to Tuesday. Delve deep for answers (but don’t hit any nerves). Love, mellow joy, come midweek. Be ambitious Friday morning. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Chase money until late April. This interval is unusually significant, as what you accomplish, dollars you make or spend (careful!) employment you begin, etc., can affect you for years. You’re forming a template. March will fight your monetary success – the “enemy” is your group of friends, your ethics, or your own wishes for the future. April offers easy success. This week, let money take a secondary role. (Especially “cruel Tuesday” – be diplomatic.) Co-operate, seize opportunities SundayTuesday. Midweek accents secrets, lust, finances. A mellow mood comes Friday/Saturday timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808
