INSIDE: New kidney dialysis centre opens P3
Jennifer Gauthier/THE RECORD
On target: The Beedie Development Group is set to begin construction of the ﬁrst phase of an industrial warehouse development on the Queensborough site that was once home to the Interfor mill. After the mill closed in 2007, Port Metro Vancouver bought the property and entered into a development agreement with the Beedie Development Group. The ﬁrst warehouse is set to open this summer.

A new industrial development in Queensborough is targeting its first tenant for the summer of 2013. In 2008, Port Metro Vancouver bought the former International Forest Products site at 501 Boyd St., following the mill’s closure a year earlier. Tom Corsie, Port Metro Vancouver’s vice president of real estate, said Port Metro Vancouver entered into a development agreement with the Beedie Development Group to develop a light industrial warehouse distribution facility
at the Queensborough site. “They are a tenant,” Corsie said. “The tenant in this case is also building the buildings.” According to Corsie, the site has its “first customer”, which is Damco, a member of the A.P. Moller-Maersk Group. He said Damco will provide a distribution facility for Target Canada on 11 acres of the site. Noting that Target is preparing to launch its Canadian operations, Corsie said construction is set to get underway at the site in the near future. Pre-loading has already taken place at the riverfront site. “We are really, really pleased with how things are going on that site,” he said. Corsie said Port Metro Vancouver has been working with the Beedie Development Group and come up with a variety of concepts for the site.

“I am very confident this site will be built out within five years,” he said. Todd Yuen, vice president of industrial development with the Beedie Development Group, couldn’t confirm Damco’s specific tenant, noting the company could provide space for any number of tenants in the building. “Construction is due to start almost imminently,” he said of the building that will be almost 50,000 square feet and completed this summer. Yuen said Phase 2 of the development is a proposal for a freestanding building of about 300,000 square feet. He said the Beedie Development Group has had “excellent” feedback on the site, which is centrally located and situated on major transportation networks. If everything goes according to plan, the second building on the site will be

built in the fall of 2014. A lengthy preloading process is anticipated for the third phase. According to Port Metro Vancouver’s website, the Beedie Development Group submitted an application to Port Metro Vancouver to develop a light industrial warehouse distribution facility at the site. While the Beedie Development Group typically has freehold ownership of its properties, Yuen said it embarked on this land lease arrangement with Port Metro Vancouver because of the size and massing of the site. “You don’t see opportunities like that,” he said. As part of the project, Beedie Development Group has commissioned a

NEW KIDNEY CARE AND DIALYSIS CENTRE OPENS IN NEW WESTMINSTER
Out of the hospital and into the mall A
s the number of people with kidney disease in British Columbia continues to climb every year, the need for education, support, and dialysis climbs as well. The newly-opened Royal City Centre Kidney Care Centre in New Westminster is the first location in the Fraser Health region that combines both kidney care and dialysis services in a single location. The first patient to get dialysis treatment at the centre last month was Daphne Harris. The local resident has been on dialysis for the past 15 months, after her kidneys started failing about three years ago. MARELLE REID She started her treatment at Royal Columbian Hospital but is now able to access the new clinic closer to home. “It’s wonderful for me because I just live across the street, so I just walk,” she said. “It’s really made a big difference.” Harris visits the centre three days a week, for four hours at a time, to have her blood filtered because her kidneys can no longer perform this vital function. She is on a waiting list for a kidney transplant but at 78, unless she gets an organ through a live donor, her chances are not as good as they would be if she were younger. Her expected wait time for a transplant is about eight years. Sitting in a padded reclining chair, she and a row of other patients have access to individual TVs. They can also read or sleep while their blood is being filtered. Being on dialysis usually means being unable to travel because of the necessity of being close to a dialysis treatment centre. It’s a huge life change, but Harris said she feels better since she started dialysis. “These machines do wonderful things,” she said. There are about 100 regular kidney care patients at the centre who learn how to manage their health and receive support from the nurse, dietician, social worker, doctor and others on staff. At full capacity, the dialysis section will be able to accommodate up to 24 patients at a time The kidneys perform several important functions, including balancing the body’s acid-alkaline level, maintaining a set volume of fluid, keeping electrolytes in balance, helping to absorb vitamin D, stimulating a hormone that helps produce red blood cells and filtering toxins from the blood. There are several causes of kidney failure, including injury and infection.
ON MY BEAT
Risk factors include having high blood pressure or diabetes, said renal nurse Gary Lacroix, who noted there are also many people who can go years without any symptoms of kidney disease until they become seriously ill. “Four out of 10 patients we have are here because they had high blood pressure and didn’t deal with it,” he said. The most important steps for keeping kidneys healthy are to eat a diet low in salt and potassium, and to exercise and avoid stress, he noted. The average age of dialysis patients is 63, though some may be younger due to kidney injury or infection at an earlier age. There are 700 hemodialysis patients and 2,500 kidney care patients in the Fraser Health region, and the number of hemodialysis patients grows by about three per cent every year. Terry Satchwill, manager of the kidney care centre, said it’s good for patients to have access to both services in the same place for continuity of care. “It’s really good if the staff get a good idea of the patient journey because these patients stay with us,” she said. “They come to us in moderate to severe renal failure and really can stay with us right up to the end of their lives.” Most patients prefer the community centre to a hospital setting because it is less busy and has a less clinical atmo-

sphere, with new interior design focused on nature and wellness, she noted. Though she must spend 12 hours each week at the centre, Harris said she has accepted this schedule and likes to take advantage of the time to read and
do some shopping at Royal City Centre after her treatments. “If you have to be on (dialysis), you have to have the right attitude,” she said.

Arts council looks to enhance streets
said. Coun. Jonathan Cote, who recently wrote a report on reviving New Westminster’s main streets as part of an urban studies project at university, said it’s a “really interesting idea” that warrants consideration. He said empty storefronts are one of the more negative detriments to any main street area. Carswell said the proposal aims to make New Westminster’s streetscape more vibrant using art. “The essence of this is really to dress up that store space,” he said. Coun. Chuck Puchmayr served council with a notice of motion that the City of New Westminster support the storefront initiative that would place art work in the windows of temporarily vacant store fronts and help organizers identify the owners. Council will consider the notice of motion at its Feb. 18 meeting. email@example.com
Vacant commercial spaces could be used for displays or arts-based events BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
The Arts Council of New Westminster is exploring ways of enhancing the streetscape in the Royal City. Rick Carswell, president of the arts council, said the group is exploring the concept of filling vacant commercial spaces with art, either static displays or events based around artwork. “We haven’t really fleshed it out,” he recently told city council, “The concept is there.” Carswell said the initiative could potentially require the city’s support because permits may be required to use the space. “We think it’s an excellent project,” he

ernment tax or royalty revenue to service the province’s prodigious debt and help pay for government operations and services. It leaves us scratching our heads, wondering why the fuss with fancy names. And while the premier’s projections of $100 billion in natural gas revenue and “tens of thousands” of jobs over the next 30 years have us all gasping in amazement, that needs to be tempered with a realization that 30 years is a long, long time, particularly in the light of an energy economy with a volatility that has
been almost as amazing as the hopes for giant natural gas windfalls. The premier’s apparent reliance on that natural gas revenue was disappointing, even for a pre-election throne speech. There didn’t seem to be much else, other than a few vague promises about legislation to help children and abused seniors. It didn’t offer much hope for those hit by B.C.’s relatively poor job-creation performance. Indeed, a promise for more realistic government advertising on that score would have been welcome. It was all mostly just gas.
Looking back on school milestones IN MY OPINION MEGAN BOBETSIS
igh school has been a roller-coaster ride of exhilarating highs, and rock-bottom lows. It’s been the beginning of self-discovery and the end of childhood. Everything is new and unexplored during the first year of high school. The hallways seem huge, and top lockers are almost out of reach. You stick to your elementary school friends as you all struggle to find the home ec classroom. People are getting shiny slide-out keyboard phones and pretending to text when they’re bored. Your parents ask you how school is everyday, and eventually you can reassure them that you’ve found your way in this big fish pond. Grade 9 begins with a sense of recognition. You remember where you used to eat lunch, and the girl who was in your socials class last year now sits beside you in english. You begin to branch out and meet new friends, and also meet new boys, and for me one of them became my first boyfriend. I remember how nervous I was when he said he wanted to kiss
me. I had no idea what to do! But it turned out OK, and I remember it was snowing that day. Grade 9 was also a time when MSN was all the rage. It was so much cooler than email. Until one day my boyfriend dumped me … on MSN. It wasn’t so cool anymore. I thought it was the end of my life as I cried into my pillow. I remember my dad patting me on the head saying, “Oh Megan, this is only the beginning.” And boy was he right. Grade 10 and 11 blurred together in a chaotic jumble. School academics became harder, and I got my first tutor for math 10. But people began to care less about school work and more about popularity. All that mattered was who you hung out with and how many Facebook friends you had. We started going to parties and caring more and more about impressing boys. Nobody wanted to talk about the new 90210 episode but instead our very own drama and gossip we had at our school. Grade 11 was an introduction to freedom. We were given more variety and choice in what classes we took at school, and parents began to extend curfews. But with all this freedom, it was also a time of decisions. You had to decide if it was a good idea to sneak out at night to hang out with the older boys (I decided against it), or to help
Pool will keep them coming back
Re: City ponders future for aging pool, The Record, Feb. 1. Regrettably, this feedback is a bit late, but I thought I would send it anyway, regarding the possible impact on the Canada Games Pool after the Burnaby facility is opened. First, let me say I have been going to Canada Games consistently since 1979, when I first moved to the Lower Mainland. I will also say that I have gone to almost every other facility throughout the Lower Mainland because Canada Games Pool closes for maintenance. Also I am on the road a lot so I travel with my bathing suit just in case I don’t make it back home I can stop off at any facility anywhere for my workout. I am very thankful for that abundance. ◗Graduation Page 7
Each facility has it good points but, as mentioned in the article, Canada Games Pool is unique. Second, I am confident that Canada Games Pool has nothing to be concerned about, because I believe the same “alarm” went out when Eileen Dailly was scheduled to be opened. Third, Canada Games Pool is unique in that it does one thing and one thing only and does it exceptionally well, head and shoulders above everyone else. That one thing is to provide a clean, highly organized facility where people come to exercise. It has been my personal experience that when any facility tries to be everything to everyone some things suffer and that is usually the “fitness” offering. I have watched Canada Games Pool grow without losing excellent service delivery, and despite its ◗Pool Page 7

heavy usage, this facility is consistently clean. I never have to be concerned about bringing slippers to the centre. The length swim area is always available, which seems to be seldom the case with other facilities; therefore it does not matter if the pool is 25 or 50 metres long. If the length swimming is compromised then it is not very effective. Like everything, Canada Games Pool will need major repairs at some point and we will go to other facilities while that is happening, as we do now, but I am confident we will return. During these maintence closures I have gone to other facilities and I have often overheard people say, “I can’t wait until Canada Games Pool opens again.” Like all new things, certainly we will check out the Burnaby facility, but I think we will always come home to Canada Games Pool.

Darcy will be a leader
Re: Support Clark in leading B.C., Letters to the Editor, The Record, Feb. 8. I agree with Ms. Waters that British Columbians deserve strong women leaders and that women’s contributions to our society need to be better recognized and respected. However, I disagree that Premier Christy Clark is the best choice for B.C.
premier just because she is a woman. It is more important that our leaders enact policies that benefit all British Columbians rather than that these policy decisions are made by women. For instance, when Clark served as Minister of Education, she instigated policies that forced school boards to cut their budgets and blocked teachers from negotiating class size and composition leading to larger classes, less personalized instruction and a general neglect of students with special needs. As premier, she continues to frustrate teachers’ constitutional right to bargain for their own working conditions and class sizes. Our children deserve more personalized education – not less – and they have been hurt by Premier Clark’s policies around education. In contrast, NDP opposition leader Adrian Dix understands that in the modern economy it is more important than ever to have a well-educated and trained workforce, and he supports investment in both K-12 and post-secondary education in order to strengthen education in British Columbia. Additionally, New Westminster need look no further than Judy Darcy, NDP candidate for New Westminster in the May 2013 provincial election, for a strong leader. Ms. Darcy has a long and proven progressive record of leadership in the health and education sectors and will work to strengthen these sectors even further as an MLA.

For example, each of our students has a focus teacher,” Jim Russell, a teacher, said. “The focus teacher is the person who meets with them on a regular basis, talks about academics as well as maybe what’s happening outside of school, whether that be a job search, whether that be

Ministry of Education curriculum, and students take all of the required courses for their high school diploma. The school also offers a year-round calendar. The school’s annual graduation is always an emotional and interesting event, Russell said, particularly for students who didn’t ever expect to make it to graduation. Russell estimates that about 65 per cent come from out of district. For more information, visit the New Westminster school district’s website at http://district.sd40.bc.ca.

transportation study of the traffic impacts of the development. Corsie said it’s not anticipated that the site will generate any traffic problems. “It’s a heavy industrial zone,” he said. “This is more of a light industrial use.” Bev Grieve, the City of New Westminster’s manager of planning, said Port Metro Vancouver isn’t required to get development permits from the city for the project, but consults with the city regarding off-site works and infrastructure matters. “It’s federal jurisdiction,” Grieve said. “We are in discussions regarding things such as access.”
In 2008, Port Metro Vancouver officials stated the site was an important part of its strategy to acquire an additional 1,092 hectares of industrial land over the next 25 years. The property sold for $30.1 million. Corsie said Port Metro Vancouver was able to purchase the site for a “very attractive” price because of the economics of the time and the mill’s financial situation. He said the site had some “positive attributes,” including being 50 acres in size, located on the river and in an area served by railroads, centrally located in the region and a reasonable distance from the port authority’s four container terminals.

LIONS CLUB HOLDS FREE FORUM
What is it like to lose your eyesight? BY MARELLE REID REPORTER email@example.com
The New Westminster Lions Club, in partnership with the Century House Association, is hosting a free forum on blindness this month for sighted people to get an idea of what it’s like to live without vision. “It’s about telling people that blindness is not a tragedy, that it’s merely an expression of that diverse spectrum of humanity,” said Louisa Lundy, event coordinator and secretary of the New Westminster Lions Club. “It’s intended to teach the sighted how to live in this world with the blind and be helpful, as opposed to being a hindrance. It’s also intended, for the blind and low vision, to put under one single roof all the services and technologies and adaptations that will make their life in the sighted world easier.” The Seeing Things Differently, Living With Low Vision forum will feature information booths, presentations and activities, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Feb. 23 at Century House in New Westminster. A lineup of speakers from the Canadian Institute for the Blind, the Vancouver General Hospital eye centre, Blind Beginnings, Apple and other organizations will offer information and give demonstrations on apps and software available for those with low vision. Shawn Marsolais, founder of Blind Beginnings, who competed in the 2004 Paralympic Games and works as a part-
time reporter for Accessible Media, will give a talk on etiquette for the sighted around those who are blind. Her talk will offer a Ms. Manners style “top 10 faux pas” mistakes most commonly made by sighted people. Sighted attendees will also get a chance to find out what it’s like to be blind through interactive activities like a “sighting challenge,” wearing blindfolds while trying to button up a shirt, lace their shoes, pour water and perform other basic tasks. Everyone, whether sighted or visually impaired, is welcome to attend the event, which Lundy says will be the largest of its kind ever held in the Lower Mainland. “There’s been a lot of effort and love put into this,” she said. “This is not about the Lions; this is not even about the low vision people at Century House, it’s really about a community coming together to help others because we can.” After visiting a forum for the blind and deaf, hosted by the Lions Club in Maple Ridge last year, Lundy decided it would be a good idea to put on a similar event in the Royal City. “New Westminster’s a hub,” she said. “It’s so easily accessible by disabled people that it just seemed the perfect fit.” In B.C., there are 135,000 people living with vision loss, according to the Canadian National Institute for the Blind. The forum will be held at Century House, (Douglas and Fir rooms) at 620 Eighth St. in New Westminster Admission is free.

Exploring history and heritage ◗P12 Top 5 for fun and activity in the city ◗P14
ON DUTY: THE PEOPLE WHO WORK BEHIND THE SCENES AT ROYAL COLUMBIAN HOSPITAL
Dietician ensures patients get meals that work for them In a special series, reporter Marelle Reid chats with the people who make RCH run. This is her first report.
ulia Chen is a registered dietician who has been working in the clinical nutrition department at RCH for the past two years. The Record caught up with Chen this week to find out what it’s like for a dietician on the wards. Can you describe your role? Basically, my role at the hospital is to identify malnutrition, optimizing the nutritional status of patients in the hospital. MARELLE REID We do that by trying to optimize what they eat here at the hospital, monitoring their clinical status … we also do nutrition support, which is if they’re not able to eat orally, we do tube feeding. We do also discharge planning in terms of education prior to discharge for long-term nutritional recommendations. So we deal with the acute setting, but also long-term discharge planning as well.
ON MY BEAT
What’s the most interesting thing about your job? I think, for me, the first thing would be just interacting with a lot of different
people - that keeps my day super interesting, the different types of personalities; even the staff here. The other side of it is that RCH is a pretty big facility for Fraser Health, and we get a lot of very sick patients, acute cases, and that, clinically, is very interesting. Something you wish you could change about your job? I enjoy working with the staff and the patients here. Everything is fantastic, but for sure, sometimes the workload can be a little bit heavy.
Jennifer Gauthier/THE RECORD
Eating right: Dietician Julia Chen helps patients at Royal Columbian Hospital ﬁgure out the best diet for healing.
Is there one myth you’d like to dispel about your job? I think when people think about dieticians just in general they think, if they’re eating a lot of candy or something around Christmastime, they think, “Oh, I can’t eat that in front of the dietician.” We enjoy our food, and for sure we enjoy our treats and stuff, but we don’t just deal with the healthy eating part of that in the hospital, we do a lot with people not eating well and malnutrition. What’s the difference between a nutritionist and a dietician? As dieticians, we are registered with the College of Dieticians here in B.C. We do have to go through a regulated program. So that involves a university
Where did you get your training? I went to UBC. We have to do about two years of undergrad science pre-requisites and we apply in the second year to get in in the third year, and it’s through the faculty of land and food systems. The program is a total of five years, including the pre-requisites.
degree, plus a year of internship, and so there are standards to make sure that we qualify and we have to be registered. So, in that sense, the public is protected when they consult a registered dietician. For a nutritionist, on the other hand, someone could just take one nutrition course and they can call themselves a nutritionist. It’s basically not regulated.
Do you wear scrubs? No, we don’t. We’re one of the few (medical) professions who don’t wear scrubs. Sometimes the nurses say, “Oh, we wish we could wear pretty clothes like you guys,” but at the same time we’re like, “Oh, we wish we could wear scrubs.” email@example.com
What did you want to be when you were a kid? I actually wanted to be a flight attendant. That was my childhood dream. I think it was … because I thought flying around was really cool and getting to visit different places. I think if I didn’t get into dietetics, I might have taken that route.

The value of heritage OUR PAST
ARCHIE & DALE MILLER
ack in the 1970s, the Heritage Canada Foundation initiated Heritage Day to recognize the importance of our heritage and to encourage people to learn about and celebrate its importance. The date established for this was the third Monday in February. This year, Feb. 18 is Heritage Day and here in B.C. you will see many events planned for Heritage Week, from Feb. 18 to 24. In New Westminster, the day and week have been marked in many different ways since their formal inception, so be sure to watch for Heritage Week programming in the city. This year’s theme is “Good Neighbours: Heritage Homes and Neighbourhoods.” As the B.C. Heritage website notes, “The theme explores the character and warmth of historic homes, and the timeless appeal of
established older neighbourhoods with vintage house styles, gardens, landscaping, trees, and boulevards.” New Westminster has a long list of officially designated heritage buildings as well as an inventory of other structures and sites that exhibit features, characteristics and specific qualities that cause them to be considered of a heritage nature. In the very early photographs of the Royal City, we can see the homes and buildings dotting the landscape and beginning to define the city’s appearance as they fill in the hillside overlooking the river. This area today is generally known as Downtown. Within a few decades, the city with its homes and other buildings had spread out within the town’s boundaries and we find clusters of structures in what we now refer to as Sapperton, the West End, Queensborough, 12th Street, Queen’s Park, Brow of the Hill, Moody Park and so on. Newer, more recent areas would include Connaught, Victory or Massey Heights, and of course others of more recent vintage. All are part of the city’s story and its
heritage. In looking at a city’s residential heritage it is always fascinating to identify the houses, that, even if they no longer exist, are still part of the community’s history. Grand, ornate houses, if that’s an appropriate term for the structures, would include those of Cunningham, Ryall, Ewen, Fisher, Hendry, Major and Edmonds – dominant buildings with intricate designs and finishes. In New Westminster we have the impressive Irving House as a focal point along with a wonderful assemblage of homes and other buildings, large and small. For a presentation on “Good Neighbours: Heritage Homes and Neighbourhoods” with lots of fascinating photographs, comments and descriptions, come out to the New Westminster Historical Society at the New Westminster Public Library on Wednesday, Feb. 20, starting at 7:30 p.m. Archie Miller and Gavin Hainsworth will provide the words and pictures for this look at this year’s heritage theme in the Royal City.

KRAWCHUK, Stanley David June 3, 1927 - February 3, 2013
Stanley David Krawchuk passed away quietly on February 3, 2013 at Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster, B.C. He was born on June 3, 1927 in Disley, Saskatchewan to William and Pauline Krawchuk. Stan was married to Lesia Krawchuk (Stadnyk) on January 25, 1958 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan; they were married 25 years. He is survived by his ﬁrst wife, Lesia and their four children. He will be sadly missed by daughter, Donna Andersen, son, Terry Korrum and wife Elizabeth, son Alan Krawchuk and daughter Jara Paul and partner Brian Sweetapple. He is lovingly and joyfully remembered by his grandson Nigel Andersen, and granddaughters, Natalie and Emily Korrum. He is fondly remembered by relatives and friends throughout Canada and relatives in the state of New Jersey. Stan grew up in Regina, Saskatchewan and graduated from Balfour Technical Collegiate in 1945. After high school he resided at the Mohyla Institute in Saskatoon while competing a Degree in Commerce at the University of Saskatchewan. He went on to study Hospital Administration at Cornell University, Ithaca, New York and began a long professional career with the Saskatchewan Government as a Hospital Administrator. For 20 years, he travelled extensively in Saskatchewan supporting the public network of hospitals throughout the province. He moved to Vancouver, British Columbia and was Administrator of North Shore Private Hospital, North Vancouver and Bevan Lodge in Abbottsford, BC. Sadly, he was predeceased by his second wife, Louise Sharon Hope who passed away on December 15, 2009 at 69 years of age; they were married 27 years. He is sadly missed by her son Don Hope and wife Karen and daughter Cathy McClellan and lovingly remembered by grandchildren Samantha, Brianna, Cypress and Douglas. Stan had a zest for life. During his high school years he was active in the gymnastics club and played the violin and mandolin in the Ukrainian Youth Orchestra. He was an avid reader and enjoyed skiing, biking, jogging and walking. Above all, his greatest joy was spending time with his grandchildren here and in Australia.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reﬂections Aries March 21 - April 19: Your revels now are ended, Aries. Let go of social notions and prepare for some “sweet solitude” – a good rest, valuable contemplation and plans ﬁll the weeks ahead. (Especially, good plans for career or dealing with authorities, which have been difﬁcult these few years.) Sunday afternoon offers muddled directions: relax. Do errands, paperwork Monday, but avoid temper, “roughness.” Tuesday morn brings easy success, and a sweet friend. Head for home midweek, as your quietude deepens. Romantic notions and inventive ideas, creative expression, ﬂow Friday eve and Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Pressures ease. Higherups have favoured you all month, but now they ease up on the “performance” pedal. The weeks ahead feature friends, social joys, entertainment and optimism. You’ll be happy! A former friend, ﬂirty person, light romance, or social circle could return. A former wish or goal could beckon again, too. But soon, huge new friendships loom also. Careful Sunday: appearances are deceptive. Chase money anyway, realistically, this eve through Tuesday morning. Errands, casual friends, communications and paperwork ﬁll Wednesday/ Thursday. Home, relax, Friday eve, Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: A peaceful month ends Monday; a month of ambition, tests, status concerns and prestige relations begins. Start NO new projects or relationships before March 17. Meantime, this week will slow like a car; then next week into mid-March will bring former ambitions, career contacts, bosses and roles/duties to the fore. Some of these could be lucky – but anything new will not be. Act accordingly. Despite this temporary retracing, your career is entering a huge new zone for the decade ahead. You will ﬁnally “reach” your true calling. Your energy and effectiveness soar Sunday-Tuesday.
Cancer June 21-July 22: Mysteries end; four weeks of understanding begin. Avoid starting new projects or relationships now to March 17. The month ahead holds far travel, legal affairs, higher education, publishing, love and cultural affairs. These are great if they come from the past (e.g., an old ﬂame, or a trip across the ocean to revisit your old neighbourhood). But new ventures in these areas are likely to fail in the long run. (For instance, this would be a disastrous time to begin a lawsuit; it would “never end.”) Rest, lie low early week. Your energy and charm surge Wednesday on. Write someone. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The weeks past brought open, honest relationships and opportunities. Monday begins a month that steers these “open” contacts into deeper, “hidden” zones. E.g., an attraction might become intimate; a business opportunity now demands commitment and funding. However, until March 17, DON’T start new ventures or relationships, especially in ﬁnances and lust. Instead, work with ongoing situations, or reprise opportunities from the past. (DON’T try to rewrite a text, score or ﬁlm script.) Happiness visits (sort of) Sunday to Tuesday. Lie low midweek. You shine, Friday afternoon, Saturday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: A major slowdown looms, February 23 to March 17, but we can feel the drag even earlier. So avoid starting new projects or relationships all week. A former link is almost certain to appear – could be an ex, former lover, friend, business associate, etc. Either this person represents a viable path forward for you, or there is unﬁnished business between you that should be wrapped up/resolved. The entire month ahead features relationships above all else – and opportunities, “renewed” horizons, relocation potentials. In these, reject the brand new. Happiness, Wednesday/Thursday!

February 17 - 23, 2013
Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Start nothing new now to March 17, Libra. You’ll be busy enough with ongoing chores – and a possible big one returning from the past. (E.g., those porch stairs ﬁnally caved in; or I forgot that tax return.) The only new thing worth starting this week is a long-range intellectual application, Tuesday morning before 10:45 PST. (E.g., submitting a school or passport application, or buying travel tickets – all for events to occur after March 17. DO NOT begin a lawsuit, essay, novel, etc.) Sunday to Tuesday are mellow, loving. Be ambitious midweek. Friday eve, Saturday: social joy. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Start nothing new before March 17, Scorpio – with the exception of a great investment, research project or intimate lure Tuesday morning. (Watch the “start nothing” period this day.) If someone new attracts you Tuesday morning, it can be loving and intimate very quickly. In addition, next week onward, an old ﬂame might return – he/ she offers emotional buoyancy and sexual depth, but make sure the “original problem” doesn’t still exist. Careful Sunday, appearances deceive. Wednesday/Thursday are mellow, understanding: love approaches. Be ambitious Friday eve, Saturday afternoon. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The month ahead accents home, children, security, nutrition, real estate, and retirement. Though a slow-down and “backwardation” occurs in many small areas now to March 17, advising against new starts, the major themes of your life actually leap forward during the weeks ahead. An end is a beginning. Trust the feeling that your life is opening to big new horizons – it is, and the more you seek the company of others, the bigger those horizons. A former domestic or career role might return – that’s ﬁne. Express love Tuesday morning. Good sex, ﬁnances and research Thursday.
Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The weeks ahead bring many details, errands, light chores, communications, paperwork, travel and casual contacts. Be alert in these: double-check instructions, reports and words/ grammar. Avoid big new starts until March 17 onward. You’ll be busy, but the stakes are not big, so ﬁnd that “relaxed busy” level. A former friend or acquaintance might return. Tackle chores Sunday to Tuesday – a Tuesday morning task can boost your career. (Start well before 10:30 a.m. PST.) Agreement and opposition occur midweek: true love’s possible. Sex, ﬁnances, secrets Friday eve, Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The weeks ahead feature money, but don’t start new money ventures – or any new projects – before March 17. Stick with the ongoing, or situations that return from the past. You’ll collect old debts and/or face paying bills you’d forgotten about. A former sensual link could return (next week onward). So could former clients and income sources. Buy NOTHING new before midMarch (except of course gas, groceries, etc.) – lemons abound. Romance is deceptive Sunday eve, irksome Monday, and sweet Tuesday morning. Tackle chores mid-week. Evaporating opportunities Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your energy, charm, and clout rise strongly over the few weeks ahead. I didn’t include “effective,” as partners, co-operators, opportunities and plans will tend to go backwards, perhaps due to indecision. So DON’T start new projects or relationships before March 17 – stick with the ongoing, or reprise past situations. A former mate, and/or a former neighbourhood, could draw you. Take a pleasant walk down memory lane. Be domestic Sunday to Tuesday. Mid-week brings romance, creative urges, pleasure and a winning streak: you fascinate someone. Tackle jobs Friday eve, Saturday. email@example.com • Reading: 604-886-4808
