Scholastic seeds planted for Wildflower growth GREG NESTEROFF Advertiser Reporter

Nelson’s Wildflower School is poised for expansion here and elsewhere, although trustees want many potential issues addressed first. The Kootenay Lake board of education heard last week that the alternative school with multiage classes has a “rapidly growing and longstanding” waiting list of over 150 names, and there’s interest in bringing the concept to Creston, Salmo, and Kaslo. Superintendent Jeff Jones presented a twoyear proposal to grow the program, while canvassing trustees on what other information they need before approving it. He explained Wildflower began as a private program in a church basement and became part of the school district in 2003, based in Central School. This year it was

granted school status and presently has 87 students in four classes. Wildflower has a philosophy of “continuous progress,” rather than grade levels, Jones said. Each class is made up of students ages six to 11,

and ideally one teacher works with the same group over a number of years, creating an attachment between them. Parents are also directly involved in developing educational programming, and provide home-

schooling on Fridays. Jones said the proposal would add another class in Nelson next year and one in Creston. Meetings would also be held in Salmo and Kaslo to determine the viability of adding classes in those

communities for 201314, and interest would later be gauged in the Slocan Valley. Jones identified a series of challenges to overcome, including sharing resources over multiple sites, providing administrative support, and building a cohesive staff. However, he felt technology may help them meet those hurdles, and recognized each site would take on its own personality depending on the community’s needs. Jones said another important consideration is that Wildflower’s pupilteacher ratio is lower than in other schools, raising concerns of equity. Trustees responded with a long list of questions. Art Field worried the district will encounter similar problems as with the French immersion program in Nelson, where demand far exceeds available seats.

“Who gets in and who is left?” he asked. “I assume Wildflower will get the best kids. It could ruin a number of schools. Be prepared to face a lot of difficulties — you’ll have parents on your backs for sure. We’ve got to be very careful about privileges these kids have.” Field said he was concerned Wildflower represented a departure from the public school system, and questioned the homeschooling component. Barb Lindsay echoed Field’s comments, although she said she believes in everything the school does and in multiage programs. Lenora Trenaman also worried entry criteria will become an issue while Bob Wright asked for data on Wildflower’s student outcomes compared to other schools. The board will consider the proposal on December 13.

Alpine attractions, film and otherwise, appeal to Rossland festival goers ARNE PETRYSHEN Advertiser Reporter

The Rossland Mountain Film Festival brought people to the mountain city to take in the newest crop of ski, snowboard and mountain climbing films. Films, however, weren’t the only attractions, as there were also some workshops and talks. Notably, East Kootenay mountain climbers and authors, Pat and Baiba Morrow talked about their experiences in the Purcells,

Himalayas and other mountainous regions. Their talk focussed on the importance of pristine places in nature and the trend of these places to be developed. They stressed that in their travels they had seen the stress that comes to places like Mount Everest and small cut-off communities when an influx of backpackers and travellers come. This they called industrial tourism. They touched on the clashes between this type of tourism

and the spiritual and sacred places that are being harmed by it. A lot of the places have been untouched and now are seeing drastic changes as they change to a touristoriented society. Pat used the Sherpas of Everest as an example, saying that back in the 80s when he climbed Everest the Sherpas were goat-herders trying to earn extra money by leading mountaineers into their sacred mountains.

Fruit of the vine finds favour in taste trials CASSANDRA CHIN Advertiser Reporter

Amidst the swirling glasses of wine and people chattering, the 20th annual wine tasting event in Grand Forks was a success. Hosted in Gallery 2 in Grand Forks, there were 11 wineries and two specialties: a brewery and spirits this year. Dawsha Hunt, one of the organizers, said the wine tasting is a fundraiser for the Grand Forks Art Gallery Society. “We’re pretty pleased that we’re able to keep it going that long,” she said. “It

started off very lowkey and small to be quite a monster.” Along with the 11 wineries and two specialties were other treats as well. “We also prepare many treats and sweets (for the event), which we’re quite well known for,” said Hunt. All the wines are local B.C. products, explained Hunt. “We’ve thought in the past to go to some international products and we may go that way in the future, but for 20 years it’s been all B.C. products,” she continued. Brenda Silkie, a first time attendee from

Brenda Silkie of Skimmerhorn Winery was “delighted” to take part. Cassandra Chin photo

Skimmerhorn Winery and Vineyard, was delighted to be there.

“What everyone says about the event is true,” said Silkie.

“It’s well attended and I’m delighted to be here.” Both floors of Gallery 2 were decked out in decorations and hosted many wineries and local food producers. “We decorate this place from top to bottom in holiday finery, including a 15-foot tree so it’s kind of our kick off to the season,” stated Hunt. “It’s a chance for people to get really swanked up, we have tuxedos and ball gowns, but it’s also okay to be casual.” This is the largest fundraiser that the Art Gallery Society hosts.

MP seeks to give Conscientious Objectors the right to stop paying for war

Ottawa, ON – Alex Atamanenko, MP (BC Southern Interior), introduced a Private Members Bill in the House of Commons today that would give conscientious objectors an official sanction to spend their taxes on nonviolent alternatives to war. Bill C-363, would allow

Canadians, who object to paying taxes for military purposes on conscientious or religious grounds, to divert an amount equal to the military portion of their income tax to a special account that could only be allocated to nonmilitary peace-building purposes. “Having the ability to

Alex Atamanenko File photo

register with Canada Revenue as a conscientious objector to war and direct some of your tax money directly towards promoting peace in the world lies at the very heart of what democracy is all about,” stated the BC MP. “For those who believe we are all responsible for our nation’s military actions

and role in the world, this right is fundamental.” A particular tenet of the bill is that regulations would be developed in consultation with Conscience Canada Inc., Mennonite Church Canada, Mennonite Central Committee of Canada and the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in

Canada. I am honoured to have the opportunity to continue the work begun by my retired NDP colleague Bill Siksay, who authored the original bill. Thanks to Anna Kirkpatrick and Conscience Canada for the valuable input they provided to strengthen Bill C-363.

Historical Commerce Slocan glass products have a lasting appeal Advertiser Reporter

Part of a series on Kootenaiana sold on eBay Two more soda water bottles from the Slocan Bottling Works of Kaslo sold last week, for $160 and $179 US, respectively. The Lower Mainland seller listed the two Hutchstyle, aqua-coloured soda bottles separately. Both were embossed “Slocan Bottling Works/Charles J. Kapps/Kaslo B.C.� while one also had “CLUB� on the back. One bottle drew three bids, and the other, four. Although the bottles are not especially scarce, they are still highly desirable. Last July, a rare variant with three spelling mistakes, embossed “CHOPPEL & KOPPS / CASLO BC� sold for $866. Six other bottles from the same plant have sold on eBay since 2001, fetching $43 to $251 each. The bottles date to the 1890s. Charles Kapps had a bottling works on D Avenue in Kaslo, and then moved to 5th Street a few years later, in the back of the present Langham Cultural Centre. He took on William Chappell as a partner in 1896, but this only lasted about a year. Kapps left Kaslo for Vancouver, then Bellingham, and Spokane, where he had several valuable real estate holdings and

a stake in the Deep Wonder mine in Idaho. • Among the more noteworthy postcard sales of the last month, a lovely coloured view of the now-

drowned town of Arrowhead in winter went for $112.50. What’s curious about this card is that the mountains in the distance have been airbrushed out

and replaced with water. The card was mailed from Nanaimo to Thorpe, Ont. and bears the message: “This is where Str. Rossland landed. From here we took a sleeper and did not change again until we reached Vancouver. Suppose you have heard about your new niece. Blake and I were at Seattle one day last week. It seems lonesome since he has gone away. Gretta.â€? Another interesting card was one of Kootenay Lake that sold for $55. It’s postmarked 1902, making it one of the earliest known picture postcards of the West Kootenay. It was produced by the BC Prints and Engraving Co. of Vancouver and sent from Seattle to Glasgow. The sender wrote the following verse: “Everybody’s well, Feeling ‘out of sight,’ When mail-day draweth near, Don’t forget to write.â€? • An old souvenir pitcher with an illustration of Doukhobor women pulling a plough went for $20.50, which was a bargain. According to the seller in Buffalo, New York, it was made in Germany. The depicted scene was based on what occurred on the Prairies in the late 19th and early 20th century. Young men worked away from the colonies, so women did the farm work — including hitching themselves to the ploughs where they lacked horses.

Every wild animal has its own unique set of challenges. On top of finding food, a place to sleep, a mate, and staying away from predators, bats in eastern North America are currently facing a new and devastating epidemic that is quickly moving west. White Nose Syndrome (WNS) is a condition caused by a fungus that affects bats by growing on their wings, muzzles and bodies during hibernation. The fungus causes bats to wake up from hibernation which quickly depletes precious energy reserves that they need to survive the full winter. If this happens, bats soon starve and freeze to death. In this way, WNS has indirectly killed entire hibernacula of bats in infected caves. For those not killed, WNS causes wing scarring that affects their flight and handicaps them from feeding and migrating. White Nose Syndrome is caused by a cold loving fungus that was first discovered in a cave in New York State in 2006. It is believed the fungus originated in Europe and was transported into the U.S. Since then, it has spread throughout the states into the Midwest, killing over 1 million bats, with 100 per cent mortality in some infected caves. In 2010, WNS was found in Ontario and Quebec and is expected to show up in Manitoba any day. The poorly un-

Jenny Wallace, left, and Sarissa Pause

derstood fungal pathogen is believed to be moved from cave to cave by migrating bats. Once hibernacula are infected, those bats that survive can spread it to the unaffected when they return to spring roost sites. To lose our bats would mean a considerable loss of biodiversity. Bats play an incredibly important role in pest control, consuming up to 600 insects in an hour or three times their body weight in a single night! Bats also make up an important food source for owls, snakes and raccoons and are also important pollinators for many native plants. Losing such an important pest predator and pollinator would have serious, wide reaching ecological impacts. Currently, the white nose fungus is found east of Manitoba, but moving west. If WNS makes it across the Rockies, all bats that hibernate in caves or mines in B.C. would be at risk. Fourteen of B.C.’s sixteen bat species hibernate in the province and are therefore threatened.

As far as is known, the spread of this virus is mostly from bat to bat contact and currently there isn’t much we can do about that. It is believed, however, that spores can also be moved between caves by humans exploring caves. To minimize the chance of human-caused spread across the Rockies, people who have been in bat habitat in Eastern North America (caves, abandoned mines, even attics) should take precautions not to bring any potentially contaminated clothing, footwear, or equipment into similar locations in the west. Cavers should be especially careful. A single spore caught up in the dirt on someone’s boot from an infected area has the potential to wipe out huge numbers of our B.C. bats. Please don’t let that boot be your own!

Lorna Marshall (Aitkin) passed away November 21, 2011 peacefully with friends & family at her side. Born June 21,1957 in Carlton Place, Ontario to parents Lorne and Leita Aitkin. Lorna is survived by her husband and closest buddy Jay, and numerous cousins and friends. Lorna had a career in the hotel industry before joining Selkirk College in Nelson B.C. in 1990. She took an 8 month program in resort and hotel management and transformed it into a 2 year University transfer program. Her love was teaching. Every September she eagerly waited to see the new cohort of students arrive. She became attached to many of her students and enjoyed watching them progress through their careers. She particularly enjoyed visiting the graduates in their place of employment to see their success. Lorna loved living in the Kootenays and enjoyed many outdoor activities, Kayaking, golfing, cycling and skiing. Lorna lived with cancer for 6 years. During that time she sat on the board of the Canadian Breast Cancer Network. Through that connection she has several articles published and had the opportunity to work with giving a survivors perspective on the potential impact of research grant proposals. Lorna always said “if you are going to get cancer, Nelson is the place to do it”. Not only are numerous complementary / alternative treatments available but her health team were “the best” she could ever want. Although she had to travel to Kelowna, Vancouver and frequently Trail, her team in Nelson went above and beyond to look after her. It wasn’t just her cancer team, Dr. Malpass, Dr. Boyd, Dr. Sawyer, Cheryl, Annette and Juanita, but so many other services. The lab technicians, ER, Xray, the booking staff, the receptionists, pharmacy, the 3rd floor personnel all tried to make things as easy and comfortable as possible for her. Thank you’s go to her family and her friends and her “adopted daughters” for being there for her and Jay. “My work here is done, now it’s time to rest” In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to: Kootenay Lake Hospital Foundation - www.klhf.org, Nelson SPCA - www.spca.bc.ca/branches/nelson, The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation - www.cbcf.org

Finance Christmas: Garland, Gifts and “Plastic!” SUBMITTED

Christmas is just around the corner and already the stores are bustling, all decked out with the latest gizmos and gadgets of the holiday season. Like most consumers, you’re looking forward to the festive celebrations but deep down you’re probably feeling a bit overwhelmed thinking about the financial stress of it all. Many Canadians feel obligated to whip out the “plastic” as they cannot bear to disappoint their loved ones – especially at Christmas. There are many reasons why we charge so much on so many cards. It’s convenient for one. They’re instantly accepted at 650,000 outlets in Canada and millions more around the world. No need to carry around large amounts of cash. Some credit cards also come with insurance benefits or reward points good for free travel or other discounts. And if we pay off the full amount within the grace period (except for cash advances), we aren’t even charged any interest. Why paying the minimum can mean paying the maximum The big banks’ prime lending rate may be low, but the usual rates that most standard credit cards charge are much higher. Many cards charge 17.5 to 19.9

per cent on overdue balances. Department store or gasoline company cards are even worse. Count on paying 24 to 28.8 per cent a year on outstanding balances there. Many allow minimum monthly payments of as little as $10 or two percent of the amount owed. Let’s assume you owe $10,000 on a credit card that carries an 18 per cent interest rate. Let’s also assume you want to take them up on their minimum monthly payment terms of three per cent of the outstanding balance (or $10, whichever is greater). Enter the variables and you’ll see that simply paying the minimum will mean that it will take you 272 months to pay off the debt – that’s almost 23 years! You’ll also pay almost $9,800 in interest and this assumes you charge nothing more on that card during that 23-year period. So how do I get around those high rates? The easiest way is to pay off your balance in full each month. If you can’t do that, you can try transferring that debt to something that costs less to service. A personal line of credit for most Canadians can be arranged at their local financial institution, often at single-digit rates. Secured lines of credit, like home equity loans, are the cheapest.

Payday loans For those who can’t get a credit card, or those who have a poor credit history that limits access to other forms of credit, payday loans are the lenders of last resort, except for loansharks They are also the most expensive. I heard of a case where a woman borrowed $520 and she kept rolling over her loan every two weeks for more than two years because she was never able to repay the original loan. Each rollover cost her $130 in fees and interest. By the time she was able to come up with the full amount owing (some 30 months later), she had paid more than $8,000 in fees and interest. Unbelievable! Do yourself a favour this Christmas, tap it cool on the spending – especially if money is tight. Don’t get yourself into a predicament you will regret. Look for bargains, pay cash whenever possible and most importantly, keep it meaningful and simple. Sometimes the best gifts come from the heart – not the department store shelf. Have a good one, folks. Debbie Pereversoff CFP CPCA is a financial planner with Assante Financial Management Ltd. and her company, The Affolter Financial Group Inc., in Castlegar.

Trail Briefs Library programs curtailed by referendum vote

Collections and programming at the Trail and District Public Library will suffer after a decision by Area B residents on Saturday not to enter into library service with the city, says the chair of the library board. Barbara Gibson said the biggest impact of the ‘No’ vote is the library will not be able to add to the collections as planned, and adult and children programming won’t be expanded as was proposed. Last year the Trail library extended borrowing privileges to Area B residents for 2011 and over 200 people signed up for a card. But the regional district area gave $20,000 to the library for the service in order to gauge the level of interest in the service. With 200 being more than the number that voted against adding in the service to the tax list, just how the referendum question was defeated — with a 178 to 39 vote — was unclear, said Gibson. “The results were a tad surprising,” she said. “But it’s a democracy and that’s how it works. If people do not want to pay for library service through their taxes, then they are non residents

and they have to pay the money individually.” Bus hours increase come spring Bus riders will be rejoicing come this spring when Kootenay Boundary Transit System makes its schedule more flexible for Greater Trail residents making their way home after work. An additional 2,400 hours will be added to the local transit system to accommodate a run leaving downtown after 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and a late-night run Fridays after 9 p.m. The extended hours are made possible because BC Transit pays 42 per cent of the cost associated with the increase, according to outgoing Trail councillor Fred Romano. “It’s not every year that they say we have these hours available,” said Romano, who sits on the regional committee. Beyond the funds received from BC Transit, the local transit system will cover the approximate $135,000 remaining to afford the schedule changes. But Romano said this amount could be cut into thirds if demand meets supply and savings are made elsewhere.

This week Passport Canada will be requiring that applications for children under 16 years of age be accompanied by further proof of parentage documentation. Effective Dec. 1, parents or legal guardians must provide with their child’s passport application a detailed government birth certificate, naming both parents, or an order of adoption naming the adoptive parents. Certain other requirements may also apply. All legal documents that refer to custody, the mobility of, or access to the child must be provided. If a divorce has been granted, a copy of the divorce judgment or order must also be provided. If a

“It is now about five years since the new passport regulations were introduced.” A. Atamanenko separation agreement exists, it must also be provided with the application. “I want to remind constituents of this so there are no last minute surprises and they will have time to apply for new birth certificates listing both parents, should they currently not have such a certificate,” said Alex Atamanenko, MP for BC Southern Interior. There are some exceptions. If a passport has previously been issued to the child in his or her name, it is still valid or expired

for less than one year, and it is included in the new application, this will be acceptable. “It is now about five years since the new passport regulations started to be introduced, and my offices are seeing an increase in applicants who are renewing their fiveyear passports,” said Atamanenko. Anyone with questions or concerns about increased fees, and the implementation of this new higher-security electronic passport, can visit Passport Canada’s website page and provide feedback to the government at: http://www.ppt.gc.ca/ articles/20111110. aspx?lang=eng There are also three other offices that people can visit: Kelowna: Passport Canada issuing office:

For nearly 100 years the 4-H Clubs of Canada have played a vital roll in bringing national attention to the benefits of supporting local agriculture and what that it does for our communities. There are about 26,000 youth that participate in 4-H Clubs across our country. The Province of British Columbia is host to clubs that focus on topics like: Field Crops, Honey Bees, Leathercraft, Small Engine, Poultry, Beef, Horses and many more. The 4-H Provincial Council, in partnership with the BC Ministry of Agriculture and Lands, provides many programs and services for these clubs. They organize events and learning opportunities from: understanding the ALR to animal husbandry, from farm and food safety, to invasive plants, to communications, and even seminars in Ottawa. Here in the Kootenay-Boundary there are several 4-H Clubs – in Cranbrook, Creston, Nelson, Trail/ Castlegar, Grand Forks and Rock Creek. The Kootenay Cinch and Saddle 4-H Club (Horse) is primarily located in the Trail and Castlegar area and will be celebrating its 12th year in 2012. Since their beginning they have been active members of the equestrian community and have been seen riding in local parades, performing drill team formations at riding club anniversaries and canvasing neighbourhoods for donations to the Children’s Wish Foundation. In addition to these activities they organize several events throughout the year including: Equestrian Youth Camps,

Fun Clinics, Horse First Aid Classes and Equestrian Massage Workshops. Not only are they active locally: they travel, with and without their horses, to various equestrian events on an annual basis. Rock Creek is host to the Regional Livestock Judging Competition where members test their knowledge of livestock confirmation. The Okanagan Stock Show, held in Armstrong, is one of the year’s most anticipated events. Members from all over the Provincial interior come together for nearly a week and partake in equestrian education and skill building challenges. This year the club also attended the Mane Event in Chilliwack, a three-day extravaganza of equestrian learning. Tekki BrownHryniw, one of the club’s leaders and a teacher at South Slocan’s Mount Sentinel School states, “This club is a wonderful way for youth to come together around horses. They gain equestrian skills and develop valuable leadership qualities that they can apply to many other areas of their lives. We always welcome new members interested in joining the club.”

This meant they were more in touch with the land around them. Now a lot of the Sherpas are professional guides. “When I was up on Everest in 82, on the first Canadian expedition, we were the only team climbing the mountain, we had to clear our own route through the notorious Khumbu Icefield and the rest of the mountain,” he said. “In the process we developed a strong bond with our Sherpas and porters.” He said that’s when his focus changed from being on the act of climbing to more of a focus on the cultures of the people around the mountains. Now, he said, there are hundreds of climbers fighting to use the fixed ropes that run now run from base camp to the summit. They also talked about the downfalls to building the Jumbo Resort and highlighted it with a recently released video by the Ktunaxa Nation outlining their stance on the drawnout proposal. “The biggest downside is that we’ve focused so much of our stk#1560 energy on this big impending fiasco all Regular these years,” Baiba said. $ 31,395 “When in fact there’s a backlog of other issues that need our attention.” She noted that things like a vital salt-lick for goats being damaged by mudboggers as well as other development “Take It issues putting pressure ToThe on the wildlife.

Week

TIP OF THE WEEK: Remembrance Day this year is taking The last month of the year is ta here! h ere 2011 sure has been eventful and the momentum entu continues. Soon the much prophesied 2012 begins. That the Year of the Water Dragon will be getting a lot of press soon. Yet we are still in hat it encompasses th Sagittarius time, the 9th Sign of the Zodiac symbolic of completions and graduations. Last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Solar Eclipse seed is waxing towards a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on December 10th. So, the year is going out with more of a bang than a ďŹ zzle. With h Mercury currently Retrograde, navigating its tricky turns is part of the plot. Uranus hovering at 0 Aries since November 12 will remain until January 8th is the biggest general factor we are all contending with right now. 0 Aries archetypally = the rising where it w sun at dawn, 6 am and Spring Equinox. In simpler terms it indicates powerful new beginnings. The last time Uranus ofďŹ cially entered Aries 2011 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a ďŹ ne example of Astrological synchronicity. Rest as you can and tune-in; a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;new raceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is about to begin! was March 11th, 20

Michael Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor

ARIES (MAR 21 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; APR 20)

LIBRA (SEP 22 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; OCT 22)

Sometimes it is harder to see the forest for the trees or the reverse. This may be one of them leading you to achieve more tangible answers. Beyond information you want a plan of action and the tools to make it so. Yet, the plan may require a larger vision, which, in turn, requires bigger commitments. An outline of the next 3 years or 5 might sufďŹ ce.

You are beginning to grow new wings. As eager as you may be to try them out, you may feel uncertain about how to ďŹ&#x201A;y. Yet, you feel determined and are committed. Creating a new kind of beauty, comfort and/or functionality close to home is featured. As ever clearing within to experience a smother ďŹ&#x201A;ow without is the call, slowly but surely.

SCORPIO (OCT 22 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; NOV 21) TAURUS (APR 20 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; MAY 21) You are poised to expand somehow. Unless you are pregnant, an increased waist size is probably not your goal. In fact, the answer may be to downsize, consolidate and/or restructure. Some inspiration woven with practicality to design a more efďŹ cient ďŹ&#x201A;ow is on your mind. Above all, it is habitual thoughts, perceptions and behaviour patterns that may be in the way.

Life often includes changing fortunes and this theme is active now. To shift to the positive end of this you may have to address some crystallized attitudes, beliefs, perceptions and self-concepts. Being open to learning new creative skills may be just a shift of your focus, or two, away. Be willing to let go of the old, even if gradually. Take new leads; try new angles.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV 21 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; DEC 21) GEMINI (MAY 21 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; JUN 21) Some noticeable changes on relationship fronts are rolling in. Digging deep to access reserves of faith is implied. Opening yourself to new considerations regarding love, fun, play and romance will help. To co-create a brighter future may require that you initiate new connections. Reach out to new networks and clubs, especially those you can enjoy in-person.

Getting clear on your goals and ideals and actualizing them with action is the call now. All the great ideas, truths and moral/ethical standards in the world are empty without follow through. Be willing to give more and differently to situations. Realistic achievement of your goals means taking one sure step at a time. Perhaps save the leaps and bounds for spring time.

CAPRICORN (DEC 21 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; JAN 19) CANCER (JUN 21 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; JUL 22) Healing rifts, divisions, contradictions and fragmentations is the call now. Tending to these within more than with others, at least initially, is ideal. Choose to be your own best friend, consciously forgive yourself if you feel guilty or ashamed. Meditate more and do what you say and say what you do. These are some examples of how to do it.

Heeding the guidance of your inner counsel continues. The time has come to make a few reďŹ nements. This may require that you take new leads. Yet timing is of the essence and this may not be it. So, how can you improve, adjust and build conďŹ dence in the meantime? Vanquishing any doubt demons is one measure. It may be time to tuck in while the crowds are nipping out.

LEO (JUL 22 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; AUG 23)

AQUARIUS (JAN 19 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; FEB 19)

To achieve your creative goals your current challenge is to steady your focus. This is not the same as dig in your heels. Get clear on your objectives. Acknowledge fears, request feedback from others, think twice and cut once, yet follow through. The time has come to expand your position in the world. Calculated risks and investments are in order.

Some shifts and changes among friends, associates and/or at work are prompting some adjustments. New thoughts, ideas and visions of the possibilities are being activated. Taking steps and measures to feel more conďŹ dent is featured. Be willing to learn, gather new tools and do your homework now, so you are prepared for in-coming opportunities soon.

PISCES (FEB 19 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; MAR 20) VIRGO (AUG 23 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; SEP 22) Shifts and changes close to home are part of a new norm. There is reason to believe that these are very good changes. A creative cycle is implied. This may include a review & consolidation of past efforts, successes and/or completions of projects and activities that have been on the shelf. Be willing to put in the time to advance to the next level.

Changes and opportunities in you public and professional life continue to roll in. To meet them you are wise to review previous successes and tend to your professional image. The review part implies making sure that any leaks, malfunctions, conďŹ&#x201A;icts and inequities are repaired and resolved. Now is the time to prepare because the pace will quicken again soon.
