Strike set for Monday Eighty-seven per cent of B.C. teachers voted in favour of action BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER

health officer. “The booster shot is especially important for those who have or expect to have close contact with infants and young children. The vaccine that most people get when they are children only offers protection for four to 10 years, so there are many adults without adequate coverage.” An outbreak in Hope in December was initially thought to be well-contained, but cases have since cropped up in Chilliwack, Harrison/Agassiz and in other Fraser Health communities. In all, there have been 140 suspected

New Westminster teachers will join their counterparts across the province Monday for a full-scale teachers’ strike. Eighty-seven per cent of B.C. teachers have voted yes to escalate the current job action. Of 32,209 ballots cast, 27,946 voted in favour. The strike will last three days. “It’s a very strong statement by teachers that they are angry, really infuriated about Bill 22, the attempt to strip the contract, the attempt to continue to strip class size and composition,” said New Westminster Teachers’ Union president Grant Osborne. “Bill 22 is a very clear sign of the government’s disrespect of teachers and public education, and they’ve stated that very loudly and in large number.” The Labour Relations Board is allowing the union to stage a full walkout one day per week, following the initial three-day strike. The Liberal government’s legislation – Bill 22, now under debate in the legislature – will make any strike by teachers illegal. “Most people are characterizing the bill as a ‘measured, thoughtful, balanced and constructive’ approach to a dispute that has been going on for almost a year with little chance of a resolution,” Education Minister George

Whooping cough warning Adults who have regular contact with young children are advised to get vaccine BY CHRISTINA MYERS REPORTER cmyers@royalcityrecord.com

As cases of whooping cough pop up throughout the Fraser Health region, medical authorities here are now expanding their adult vaccination recommendations beyond the original outbreak zone in Hope and Chilliwack.

This week, the health authority announced it’s encouraging all adults and youth in the region who are in regular contact with young children to get the free vaccination from their doctor or participating pharmacies. The recommendation includes pregnant women and their partners. The health region runs from Boston Bar to Burnaby, including New Westminster, Coquitlam, Delta, Surrey, Langley, Maple Ridge and Abbotsford, covering more than 1.6 million people. “The best protection against whooping cough is to get vaccinated,” said Dr. Paul Van Buynder, the region’s chief medical

Strike: ‘We all have to do our part,’ parent says ◗ continued from page 1

Abbott said in a press release. “If you look at the history of the relationship between the teachers’ union and the government in this province, you’ll soon realize that in almost 20 years of provincewide bargaining, the BCTF has only successfully concluded one negotiated agreement. You will also realize that Bill 22 is a measured and appropriate response to the current situation. “I am disappointed by the initial comments coming from the teachers’ union. In the most frustrating example – the union has been asking for mediation. Now, they are rejecting the idea simply because the mediator is required to strike a genuine balance in the discussions by looking at what both parties want so we can put the needs of students first.” Osborne said the mediator is an appointed mediator, not one that has been agreed to by both parties. “The terms of reference for the mediator are extremely narrow and guided by the government’s attempt to strip elements of our collective agreement,” said Osborne. “Also what little protections there were under Bill 33 for class size and composition have also evaporated through Bill 22.” Osborne called Bill 22 “a significant step back” in resolving the year-long contract dispute. “I think what we’ve seen shown by the government is a lack of respect for teachers and a lack of respect for public education,” he said. “The lack of respect for teaching has been shown in how they govern themselves at the bargaining table, and the lack of respect for public education has been shown in the chronic underfunding. Three-and-a-half billion dollars over 10 years has been taken out of education by this government over 10 years.” Teachers feel they deserve a salary

Teachers raise concerns about May Day Preparation takes away learning time for other students, say Tweedsmuir teachers

BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER

nhope@royalcityrecord.com

Teachers at Lord Tweedsmuir Elementary say teaching May Day dances is taking up too much learning time for students who aren’t involved in the annual community event. As a result, they want the school district to bring in substitute teachers to show grades 3 and 4 students the festive dances so other students don’t lose out

on 16 hours of instruction. “We do not believe the challenges we face are unique to our school, but, of course, we are not in a position to speak for others,” said a letter sent to the school district and signed by 13 Tweedsmuir teachers. Teachers with multi-grade classrooms have a difficult time keeping all of their students engaged while teaching the dances to the students who actually need to learn it, said the letter. They wrote that it was difficult to prepare for a substitute teacher to take over their class while they taught the dances. The teachers also wrote that they feel “bad” about missing out on valuable instruction time with non-danc-

the cost of substitute teachers. Meanwhile there are rumblings that teachers at other schools aren’t pleased with the spring celebration, which has been held in New Westminster for 142 years. In a recent parent advisory council consultation at Lord Kelvin Elementary, the majority of teachers noted that they considered May Day a low priority for the parent advisory council spending. One teacher’s comment was: “When will this end?” said a write-up trustee Lisa Graham brought to the board on Tuesday night. Another May Day concern is the high absenteeism rate of Grade 6 and 7 students on the ◗May Day Page 5

District pays down deficit BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER

nhope@royalcityrecord.com

The school district managed to craft a budget that allows it to pay off a half-a-million dollar deficit. Trustees passed the 2011/12 budget, which included a $2,014,000 revenue increase compared to an earlier budget for the year. The district had additional operating expenses of $1,492,707, including the cost of extra teachers. There is a remaining surplus of $521,237, which will go toward a deficit left over from the previous school year. One area boosted in the budget was the amount the district allocates to pay for substitute teachers.

When the budget was presented at Tuesday’s school board meeting, board chair James Janzen asked district administrators if other school districts are seeing an increase in the cost of substitute teachers. “Have you talked to colleagues in other districts?” Janzen asked Bob Tamblyn, the district’s director of human resources. “It’s a guess as to why, however it’s increasing,” Tamblyn told him. The district also increased $100,000 to pay for “management of issues requiring legal and other external professional assistance.” “One of the things we’ve done the last couple of years, we’ve cut back drastically on the amount of legal

costs,” board of education vice-chair Michael Ewen told The Record. “Most of them (are) personnel-related. … In a year of collective bargaining, there are often times you need to check something out with the lawyer.” The district benefited from a December announcement that the Ministry of Education would provide further funding for full-time students. The district received $649,000 in holdback funding (money the Ministry of Education retains for potential enrolment increases throughout the year). The district is also estimating that it will receive an additional $150,000 (on top of $200,000) from its business company, which runs a school in China. www.twitter.com/nikimhope

May Day: high rate of absenteeism for students day of the event. “On May Day, there were some fairly substantial spikes in absenteeism on that particular day. May Day is not a non-instructional day. It is an instruction day,” said Woudzia. “I know one of the issues has been for the older students, where their main involvement has been the relays at the end of the event, and three of the last four May Days we’ve had rain, so we haven’t proceeded with the relays for

safety reasons. It’s been an issue that the students really don’t have an area of involvement, so that’s been a contributing factor. That’s one aspect of it we can’t control.” In her notice of motion write-up, Graham noted that at a recent Tweedsmuir parent council meeting, parents were told that the school had scheduled a field trip for grades 6 and 7 students on May Day. Calls to Tweedsmuir to confirm this hadn’t been returned at press time. All of the controversy

has Graham – who cherishes May Day and believes it is worthwhile to learning outcomes – calling for the board to consider a motion

to hear public feedback. Graham’s motion is expected to come before the board at its next meeting on Tuesday, April 3.

IN MY OPINION

Happy to send Cons packing

Dear Editor:

Re: No chance for Libs in Royal City, Letters to the editor, The Record, Feb. 15, by Paul Forseth. When Paul Forseth states that “some NDP vote might come my way, considering how the NDP leadership rudely cast aside Dawn Black as part of the ousted Carole James group,” there is no doubt in my mind that I fit into that description perfectly, in terms of my feelings towards how Dawn Black has been treated. As a supporter and friend of Dawn Black, I will honestly and publicly attest to the fact that I have not been happy with how the party has treated her as MLA for New Westminster. She stepped into the interim leadership role after the “coup” and showed everyone what the true meaning of political leadership is. And her reward for this, in my opinion,

was being “left hung out to dry” by the provincial leadership over the rush to “nominate” a candidate before a potential 2011 provincial election. Back when our illustrious Premier Christy Clark, upon assuming the leadership of the B.C. Liberals, was playing “will I call an election, won’t I call an election” like a school girl plucking petals from a daisy. Back when it would have been absolute political suicide for Clark to call an election, given the polling numbers then, and the split of the hard right-hand side of the political spectrum in B.C. By my words, you can see that I am not a contented, happy, centre-lefty. To say that I and others like myself would abandon our political actuations and our care and concern for the people of New Westminster, as well as the province, by voting for one of two parties whose ◗Liberals Page 7

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Liberals taking a hard right?

◗ continued from page 6

policies and ideas I have been so vocally opposed to, is wrong. I may not agree with the hierarchy of the NDP and its handling of a few key issues and situations, but that is not enough for me to “sell out” my morals and principles. I do not hold my ideals as cheaply or conveniently as others who engage in floor crossing or political hopscotch do. Which brings me to David Brett’s letter, Thanks for nothing, printed on Feb. 22. David Brett has written numerous letters to the editor, extolling the virtues of the B.C. Liberals and their platforms, policies and positions under both Gordon Campbell and Christy Clark. It’s refreshing to see Mr. Brett finally acknowledge just where on the political spectrum the B.C. Liberals stand when he talks with such admiration and glowing adulation of the far right-wing of the political spectrum when he states “Think about it. Our prime minister is from Alberta, and we have Reform to thank for that. Let’s not spoil the legacy of Reform in this province.” With the recent budget put forth by Finance Minister Kevin Falcon, reminding everyone of the infamous restraint era of the early to mid-1980s, Socred governments, as well as Christy Clark’s choice of a new chief of staff, Ken Boessenkool, former strategist and senior policy analyst to Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper, there can be no doubt that there is very little “liberal” left in the B.C. Liberals. I suppose that this has now devolved into a fight for the right. Being a moderate centre-left person, politically, I cannot say that I don’t derive a sense of delight in this dilemma for the “right” side of the political spectrum. I do not share the political beliefs of either David Brett or Paul Forseth. However, should Mr. Brett’s prediction come true of “vast forests of for-sale signs and armadas of Albertabound U-Hauls all emblazoned with one clear message: ‘Thanks John Cummins. Thanks for nothing,’” Mr. Brett, his political allies and supporters may require some assistance in joining in on this after the 2013 provincial election results come in. I am most willing and able to assist them in packing and being on their way. Dave Lundy, New Westminster

This letter is to Mayor Wayne Wright, whom I voted for every year since he became mayor. This is in regards to the announcement that city residents face a 2.5 per cent tax increase. This tax increase is totally unnecessary if Mayor Wright used some intestinal fortitude and stated that there will be no further salary increases or wage increases annually for city staff members or city workers. They are not justified, and there should be a rollback of salaries or a huge layoff. I believe city workers are well-compensated for having long coffee breaks and long lunch hours. It’s time to work eight hours for eight hours’ pay and delete the card game playing. (City finance director) Gary Holowatiuk can start the ball rolling by asking for a salary rollback, as his is now closing in on $200,000 per annum. Taxes have increased on my property every year since 1948. Roll them back, Mayor Wright, and while you’re at it, sir, reduce your own annual stipend and the council members from six to two. As stated above, intestinal fortitude, sir. James Wark, New Westminster

No twin pipeline, thanks Dear Editor:

The sustainable alternative to the proposed Enbridge pipeline is not twinning the Trans Mountain pipeline and increasing tanker traffic in Burrard Inlet. With decentralized energy systems, we no longer need to pay the greatest part of the cost (economic, ecological and ethical) of centralized energy: transmission and distribution. On-site solar, wind and geothermal systems, added to energy-efficient buildings and technologies, can supply all sectors: industrial, commercial and residential. Added to the electricity grid, renewables stabilize it, reduce risk of rolling blackouts, and add energy when the owners have what they need. With renewable energy available at every location – including home charging for your electric car – we can save oil for lubrication and leave tar in the ground. A pipeline and more tar sands would cost trillions of shareholder and taxpayer dollars. Investing these in efficiency and renewables instead can supply on-site heat and electricity across the country, while creating countless jobs and industries in every local economy.

Vaccine: Pertussis spreads ◗ continued from page 1

or confirmed cases, but health officer Dr. Elizabeth Brodkin told The Record recently that the true number of cases is likely far greater, as some cases go undiagnosed or unreported. “The true number is probably about three times that,” she told The Record in early February, when the number of cases totalled about 100. Whooping cough, or pertussis, is a highly contagious disease that causes severe coughing that may last for months. It can be potentially fatal for young children and babies; more than half of infants under a year who contract whooping cough will be hospitalized, and, of those, a small percentage can die. The disease spreads easily through the air when an infected person coughs, sneezes or even laughs. Symptoms appear about seven to 14 days after infection, looking initially like a cold with runny rose, low fever

and mild cough, but the cough will continue to worsen, becoming so bad that it can lead to vomiting. The Fraser Health Authority is also encouraging parents to ensure their children are fully immunized and is asking health-care professionals to be on the watch for cases of whooping cough as early diagnosis and treatment can help limit the spread of the disease. Free vaccine is available through doctors’ offices and participating pharmacies for adults and youth who haven’t had a whooping cough booster in the past five years and who are in regular contact with young children. A list of immunizing pharmacies can be found at www.fraserhealth.ca/ whoopingcough. To check a child’s immunization records and make an appointment for childhood immunizations, contact a local health unit for an appointment. www.twitter.com/ChristinaMyersA

Local man faces firearms charges in Surrey death BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER alau@royalcityrecord.com

A 19-year-old New Westminster man is facing firearms-related charges and a 21year-old Surrey man has been charged with first-degree murder after a Sunday night Surrey shooting that resulted in the death of a 31-year-old Surrey man. On Sunday night, just after 10:30 p.m, Surrey resident Kacey Rogers was fatally shot in his home in the 14000 block of Grosvenor Road in Surrey. According to an Integrated Homicide Investigation Team press release, Rogers was not known to police and appeared to be the victim of a targeted attack. Investigators worked around the clock on the case and arrested two men on Tuesday. Joshua Martinez, 19, of New Westminster has been charged with firearms-related offences and is due to make his first court

appearance on March 2. Russell Bidesi, 21, of Surrey has now been charged with first-degree murder and made his first court appearance on Thursday. “We are very pleased to be in a position to make this announcement, only a few days after Kacey’s (death),” IHIT Cpl. Adam MacIntosh said in a press release. “Although charges have been laid, this investigation remains in its early stages, will remain active and continue to progress.” He added that investigators continue to explore any possible gang association. If anyone has information regarding this homicide, they are asked to contact the IHIT tipline by calling 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or by email at ihittipline@rcmp-grc.gc.ca or if they wish to remain anonymous, they can call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or go to www.solvecrime.ca. www.twitter.com/AlfieLau

City invites premier to visit

New Westminster city council is inviting provincial officials to visit the Royal City to discuss a number of pressing issues. On Monday, city council approved a motion by Coun. Bill Harper to invite Premier Christy Clark, NDP leader Adrian Dix and Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom to New Westminster. Topics to be addressed include funding for the Royal Columbian Hospital expansion, construction of new schools and replacement of the Pattullo Bridge. Harper said Lekstrom previously told

city officials he would visit the city, so staff is working to set up a meeting in New Westminster to look at the Pattullo Bridge issue. The city is also looking for some answers about the status of construction of three new schools in New Westminster. As for Royal Columbian Hospital, the city wants to know more about an ongoing provincial review of expansion and renovation plans designed to address space shortages. www.twitter.com/TheresaMcManus

Duelling divas take to the stage in comedy

The Vagabond Players are cooking up some laughs for their next production. The theatre group is offering up The Kitchen Witches, a comedy by Caroline Smith, from March 15 to April 14 at the Bernie Legge Theatre. Jacqollyne Keath directs Deborah Tom and Cindy Peterson Good as two duelling divas, Isobel Lomax and Dolly Biddle.

THE RECORD

They’re the hostesses of a cable cooking show who have hated each other for more than 30 years – ever since Larry Biddle dated one and married the other. “When circumstances result in the ladies appearing together in the same cooking show, the insults are flying harder than the food,” a press release says. Dolly’s TV producer son, Stephen

Biddle (played by Ryan Johnson), tries – without success – to keep the ladies on track, while Rob the camera guy (played by Howard Dai) is a teenager who works to keep Stephen focused. Costumes are by Patricia McClean, and set design is by Craig Premack. The Bernie Legge Theatre is in Queen’s Park.

Shows run Thursday to Saturday at 8 p.m., with Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. Tickets are $15 regular, or $13 for seniors and students, with two-for-one previews on March 15 and 16. For reservations, call 604-521-0412 or email reservations@vagabondplayers.ca. For information, check out www. vagabondplayers.ca.

Country legends come to life in new tribute show

Two country legends are coming to life on the Massey Theatre stage on March 15. Country Legends: Patsy Cline and Johnny Cash is onstage at the theatre at 7:30 p.m., featuring David James and the Big River band in a Cash tribute and Sara-Jeanne Hosie in a tribute to Cline. James will recreate such hits as Folsom Prison Blues, Ring of Fire, Hey Porter, Rock Island Line, Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down, A Boy Named Sue, Man in Black and Walk the Line. Interwoven with Cash’s most famous songs will be a multimedia presentation including video and some never-before-seen photos of Cash and June Carter Cash from the archives of Jonathan Holiff – the son of Saul Holiff, Cash’s manager. The audience will also be treated to a sneak

peek at My Father and the Man in Black, a documentary about the often tumultuous relationship between Cash and Saul Holiff. “This will certainly be a show not to missed by any true fan of Johnny Cash,” said Tina Coldwell, manager of David James and the Big River band, in an email. Not to be outdone, Cline fans will also enjoy a top-notch performer in the person of Hosie, who performed to critical and audience acclaim in A Closer Walk With Patsy Cline in shows throughout B.C. She’ll take on classics such as Faded Love, I Fall to Pieces and the iconic Sweet Dreams. Tickets are $38.50, available at 604-521-5050 or through www.masseytheatre.com. www.twitter.com/juliemaclellan

Terri does a Bosu squat working on her balance and leg strength.

Hi and welcome back to “Trim Down With Terri” a 10 week training program at Dynamic Health and Fitness where I (Luke Ramnath) will be putting Terri Rodger through her paces twice a week to help her reach her health and fitness goals. At the start of our first session I checked Terri’s weight which is now down to 161 lbs totalling a loss of 6 lbs since we began training. I then took her through part of the original strength test we did, measuring her back and leg strength. To measure her back strength I had Terri do a seated row (back exercise) of which she managed to do whopping 73 repetitions, when we first started she did a respectable 43. For her leg strength I had Terri do Swiss ball dumbbell squats and she did 60 repetitions which is a 50% increase in her overall leg strength as she managed 30 originally. Now that we’re into week 8 I took some time to review Terri’s original 3 programs. Firstly I checked that her form is correct so she doesn’t injure herself and to make sure the exercises are effective. Secondly I added weight to her exercises, this is to ensure she is still challenged and to help increase her overall strength. Lastly I added time to any cardio intervals which

will prove to be more intense and aid her aerobic capacity. To start our second session I put Terri on the treadmill and did some interval training with her, this combines bursts of high intensity running with periods of low intensity jogging to help boost her metabolism and supercharge her workout. We did 10 minutes of intervals with a low to high ratio of 1.30 to 1.00 minutes. Following this I took Terri through a circuit I designed for her involving 1 exercise followed directly by another working her muscles from head to toe. I utilised some great exercises like Swiss ball planks, step up’s with dumbbell shoulder press and cable squat rows.

Biathlete in the zone at Games

BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

Louisa Tsang was a big winner in biathlon at the B.C. Winter Games in Vernon last weekend. The 16-year-old New Westminster Secondary student won the senior girls’ indvidual event, while placing runner-up in both the sprint and super sprint. Recently, Tsang, a petty officer first class sea cadet with Fraser Corps in New Westminster, also won the provincial six-kilometre individual biathlon competition. She also took gold at the B.C. Cup races in Kelowna prior to the Games. Tsang’s first appearance at the Winter Games in 2010 was unique in that competitors had to run the course because of a lack of snow. Tsang learned the skills of biathlon from her father and proved a natural when she began in the sport at the age of 12. She won the zone competition in her first-ever race. “I didn’t do cross-country (skiing) before. My only sport was downhill skiing when I was little,” said Tsang. “It’s just my dad. He was my coach when I was younger,” said Tsang. “I find this sport motivates me to go farther in life

Evan Enriquez picked up a bronze at under-50kg. Luka Cuperlovic, Mitsuki Ikejo, Billy Trengrove, Smazov and Enriquez shared a team bronze medal. Burnaby athletes also won four medals in archery.

Renting or buying, we’ve got what you’re looking for.

Call 604-365-4244

Cancer June21-July22:Yourmellow,understanding mood continues. Relationships are changing (20082023). This month is an excellent time to figure out why – why they’ve changed, what you can do, the meaning of it all. Your vision and thoughts are broader and more acute than usual. You’ll be surprised/ gratified by the nuggets of affection and optimism you uncover. (That’s partly because, now to April 3, your popularity rises.) Chase money – carefully – Sunday eve to Tuesday. Travel, talk, messages fill midweek: say heartfelt, loving things. Settle into home Friday/ Saturday. Finish, don’t start, projects. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The mysteries continue. But you’ll solve a lot of them Sunday eve to Tuesday, when your energy and alertness return. (Passivity promotes mystery; action solves it.) And Tuesday night to Thursday, when money luck (combined with action) can reveal the forces and currents underlying many aspects of your life, and reveal a profitable, satisfying road ahead. Take action! But stop Thursday; sit back, relax, have a coffee and communicate Friday/ Saturday. All week, start nothing that will demand further (supportive) efforts after this week. E.g., buy stocks, don’t start a business. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Relationships dominate all month, but this week the aces fall in your lap. Take advantage of your position, luck and strength, especially Wednesday – but keep in mind the need to please another, to co-operate and work as a team. Strictly avoid starting any new projects before April 4; finish instead. (A period of slowdowns, mistakes and indecision technically begin March 12.) You’re hopeful Sunday morning, but to little avail. Retreat this p.m. through Tuesday eve: meditate, finish chores, rest. Your energy and charisma surge midweek. Examine money (buy nothing) Friday/Saturday.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Tackle chores. Protect health; eat and dress sensibly. Though March is always a month of drudgery for you, it will be lightened this time by a relationship. A friend could be all talk, or physically intimate – the former is a lot safer. (You aren’t really in a good mating phase before June, not in an excellent one until September – before this, sex is great, but not a basis for life-mating.) Your popularity and optimism rise Sunday eve to Tuesday – be happy! But retreat to rest, contemplate and exercise charity midweek. Your energy and charisma rise Friday on. Start nothing new, big. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: You’re on a wee winning streak – take risks, be adventurous. But don’t start any large projects (ones that will demand your participation later in March). Sunday morning’s mellow but not successful – leave love for the moment. Be ambitious Sunday eve to Tuesday pre-dawn – the path is smooth. An ally will either fight you or promote you. Wishes come true Tuesday night to Thursday: optimism, social delights and entertainment arrive. A love interest could climax, become an affair. But retreat, rest and contemplate Friday/Saturday. Plan nothing big, start nothing big this week. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The accent lies on home, family, property, security, retirement, gardening, nutrition, stomach and soul. Diving into any of these will give you a feeling of satisfaction – but finish rather than begin projects, in these or any zones. A romantic glance, a friendly but rushed conversation, could spark an affectionate interlude, but any relationship begun now will inherit indecision. (And an old flame might return later in March, complicating everything.) These are just a “stirring” – soon, April onward (into 2013) a serious sweet bond will arise. Good career luck midweek.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Continue to rest, lie low. Contemplate: how have you come here, and where are you going? It’s a little too early to make plans, as many factors, and your own certainty, will “show up missing” over the next few weeks – significant revisions will arise in April. Complete projects and duties now, rather than starting anything new. What seems a dull Sunday might transform, this night or Tuesday, into romance or a pleasure foray. Your money luck improves over the next four weeks. Tackle growing chores midweek. Relationships have a strong message for you Thursday night onward. Taurus April 20-May 20: You’ve felt a bit put-upon, that luck wasn’t on your side, these last few weeks. That changes, Monday onward. Your gracefulness and subtle magnetism return; your popularity surges upward, puzzlement will dissolve. Still, don’t start new projects or new romances before April. You often judge yourself by your possessions. That will cause you much wondering and bemusement in May/June – but these months of indecision will be only part of a longer phase of good money/possessions luck, from April to July, which in turn kicks off a hugely lucky year of money, lasting to mid-2013.) Gemini May 21-June 20: The accent continues on ambition, reputation, mingling with “big shots” – considering your poor luck of the last few years, take a defensive rather than daring stance here. Strictly avoid starting ambitious new projects before April 4. (A slowdown starts soon, technically March 12. This will bring back a former hope, or “light lover” – but that’s next week onward.) You’ve been more gregarious the last few weeks: now, through March, socializing mingles with “quiet joys.” BTW, those years of bad luck end in June; bad karma ends in late August. Then a year of splendid fortune begins.

March 4 - 10, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Travel, communicate, perform errands, do paperwork – do these quickly, now, as a major slow-down hits this area next week, which will leave you “out of the loop,” planning-wise and data-wise, to April 4. (Speaking of planning, make none now; wait until April, after the situation has changed.) Life’s depths, sexual urges and financial actions fill Sunday eve to Tuesday. A mellow, wise mood flows Tuesday night to Thursday: dive into culture, international affairs, intellectual pursuits, and love. Luck accompanies you Sunday eve to Thursday, so act. A romantic mood creeps in. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Chase money – but don’t start any large projects (especially in monetary, friendship or communication zones) before April 4. Your home becomes a more affectionate place in March. You’ll be talking, mailing, travelling all month, too, but make your major contacts now, not later. Schedule meetings for April, not March. Relationships bless you Sunday eve to Tuesday: a property question might arise. Delve into intimacy, big finance, research or health problems Tuesday night to Thursday – you might make a major, lucky investment. Wisdom, but not much luck, Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your energy, charisma and clout ride a peak wave – but the results of your actions might not be what you want, if you begin projects now (or anytime before April 4). Finish things, instead. You might meet a splendid friend soon (around March 13, but it could occur anytime March 5 onward). Tackle chores, protect your health, Sunday eve to Tuesday. Tuesday night to Thursday brings great relationships, exciting meetings and new opportunities (but remember my advice about new projects). (You’ll see these people again mid-next week.) Take care with money, intimacy Friday/Saturday. timstephens@shaw.ca
