Survivors’ Secretariat honouring children who passed away at Mush Hole

The Six Nations Survivors’ Secretariat is honouring the children of the former Mohawk Institute Residential School with what’s being called the “Memorial 96 display” currently installed at their office in Ohsweken.

The display consists of two hearts arranged on the lawn, with the smaller heart representing the children who have been identified.

The larger heart signifies the children who remain to be found.

The individual feathers which create the display represent the 96 children who are known to have died while attending the Mohawk Institute Indian Residential School in Brantford.

The Secretariat has been able to confirm the 96 child deaths through archival records found in both public and private repositories over the past two years.

The Survivors’ Secretariat is a Survivor-led initiative established in 2021. The Secretariat coordinates protocols and processes associated with the death investiga-

tion of the children who attended the institute and facilitates the gathering of community and Survivor statements as they work to document and share the truth about what happened at the Mohawk Institute during its 140plus years of operation.

The Secretariat has identified more than two dozen collections held in archives and repositories in Canada and England.

“The truths contained within the documents of the harsh and unfair treatment of children are still being uncovered,” the Secretariat said in a press

release. “Many collections have protections in place which slow or prevent Indigenous organizations from accessing documents about themselves. The Secretariat continues to navigate the colonial structures of the institutions holding records relevant to the Mohawk Institute.”

To date the Secretariat has collected, reviewed and organized over 20,000 relevant documents recording over 4,600 students and documenting 96 deaths. The Secretariat said it anticipates these numbers will

continue to grow as more documents are obtained, reviewed, and catalogued.

The Secretariat is asking people to support Survivors this September to uncover, document, and share the truth about the legacy of Indian Residential Schools in Canada.

Some ways the Secretariat is suggesting Canadians take part in Truth and Reconciliation events being held across the province and country this week are:

-read and discuss literature about Indian

Residential Schools

-watch and discuss movies about Indian Residential Schools

-wear orange to show your support this September

-donate to a Survivors organization -support the inclusion of residential school legacy in Canadian education

The Survivors’ Secretariat is inviting people to stop by their office Sept. 18 to 29 to pick up a free Every Child Matters item, while supplies last.

Controversy over one of the candidates has already begun, with at least a few community members expressing concern on social media about councillor candidate Amos Key Jr.

15 'potential' gravesites found

to create a world that is just, inclusive and rooted in compassion.''

The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation

found is consistent with the accounts of school survivors.


First Nation elder Sandra Johnson says the discovery of 15 potential graves near the site of a former residential school has ``uncovered long-buried wounds.''

Johnson spoke Tuesday at the release of an investigation into unmarked graves and the deaths of children who attended the former Chooutla Residential School in Carcross, south of Whitehorse.

Johnson, who is an elder adviser for the Yukon Residential Schools

Missing Children working group, acknowledged others around the territory will also be struggling.

``Know that you are loved, valued and cherished. We stand with you in solidarity, committed to walking the path of healing alongside you,'' she said.

``May the spirit of our ancestors guide us and may the resilience of your communities inspire us all

Memorial Register lists 20 children as dying at the school, which operated from 1903 to 1969, but researchers said on Tuesday that their work found at least 33 students who either died at the school, in hospital after being injured at school, or while they were involved in school-related activities.

The discovery is the latest in a series of potential graves found around Canada's residential schools.

On Thursday, the Sto:lo First Nation said it discovered at least 158 deaths at three residential schools and a hospital, dating back to 1863. Most of those deaths were from tuberculosis or other disease.

Brian Whiting, with the B.C.-based company GeoScan, which performed the ground-penetrating radar search, said ``more invasive'' work would be required to confirm if the sites in question are graves.

He said what they

Whiting said GeoScan searched more than 37,000 square metres of land and all 15 potential sites were found within 58 square metres of each other.

Nicole Marion, with the research group Know History Inc., says their work began in January of 2022 and included 4,500 archival documents.

She said they've submitted access to information requests for more than 100 files and received partial access to 70.

``Partial access means that we have been provided with a copy of the files that we have requested, but all identifying personal information for students, children and staff have been removed,'' she said.

Marion said of the 1,300 children taken to the school from Yukon, Alaska and British Columbia, they only know the names of 900 and the home locations for about 730 of them.

Indigenous dark fiction anthology sends chills up spines

Never Whistle at Night, an original anthology of 26 dark stories by Indigenous authors dares to ask the question: “Are you ready to be unsettled?”

The collection is a celebration of Indigenous peoples’ survival and imagination in all the things an ill-advised whistle might summon. Many Indigenous people believe that one should never whistle at night. This belief takes many forms, but what all these legends hold in common is the certainty that whistling at night can cause evil spirits to appear — and even follow you home.

Never Whistle at Night was edited by Shane Hawk and Theodore C. Van Alst Junior. Authors include Cherie Dimaline, Darcie Little Badger, Nick Medina, Waubgeshig Rice, and Rebecca Roanhorse. Introduced and contextualized by Stephen Graham Jones. Genres include sci-fi, fantasy, horror and crime.

“Can you draw power from the spirit of a story? If the 26 tales in the essential Never Whistle at Night anthology are any indication, the answer is an emphatic yes,” said Clay McLeod Chapman, author of Ghost Eaters, in an online review. "The title itself provides its own warning, but I'll go one step further: never read this collection of spine-chilling stories alone at night. You just might not make it to morning.”

Labelled a bold, clever and sublimely sinister collection on thriftbooks. com, these wholly original and shiver-inducing tales introduce readers to ghosts, curses, hauntings, monstrous creatures, complex family legacies, desperate deeds, and chilling acts of revenge.

The belief of not whistling at night without experiencing sinister consequences takes many forms: for instance, Hawaiians believe it summons the Hukai'po, the spirits of ancient warriors, and Mexicans

say it calls Lechuza, a witch that can transform into an owl. In northern Manitoba, it is said that if misbehaving children whistle at the Northern Lights, aka the aurora borealis, they will be taken up inside the spectacle and become one with them.

Hawk (Cheyenne and Arapaho) is an emerging dark fiction writer. His debut was Anoka: A Collection of Indigenous Horror, which was followed by a splatterpunk Western novella, Untamable Creatures, and a story within the Indigenous comic anthology, A Howl: A Comics Collection of Wolves, Werewolves, and Rougarou.

Van Alst Junior (Lakota and Anishinaabe) is the author of the novel Sacred Smokes, winner of the Tillie Olsen Award for Creative Writing, and Sacred City. His Pushcart-nominated fiction has been published in Southwest Review, Unnerving Magazine, Red Earth Review,

National Day for Truth & Reconciliation

September 30, 2023

TWO ROW TIMES September 27th, 2023 5 SIX NATIONS SIX NATIONSThis message is brought to you by the Six Nations Police Service
We honour our ancestors by continuing to learn and practice our teachings and our culture, and to share those teachings amongst each other, with our nonindigenous colleagues, friends and families.

Shopping for something to wear on Orange Shirt Day?

Here's what you need to know

founder of online marketplace ShopFirstNations.

Every dollar spent on an orange T-shirt for Truth and Reconciliation Day should be a conscious effort to uplift an Indigenous business or community, experts say.

Shopping for orange T-shirts from Indigenous businesses is a tangible step toward economic reconciliation, said Rob Schulz,

For anyone unsure how to find those businesses, here are some tips for finding an orange shirt ahead of Sept. 30.

Shop Indigenous Pledging to purchase items from Indigenous vendors not only supports their business, it serves the whole community.

Indigenous businesses bring resources back into their communities, said

Jacob Crane, the Indigenous entrepreneurship program manager at United College in Waterloo, Ont.

Know where the money goes

Experts say it is important to understand who benefits. Does the purchase price of the item goes back to the artist, vendor or community rather than the company who owns a chain store? Indigenous businesses usually make that information clear, said

Carol Anne Hilton, CEO of the Indigenous economic advisory group Indigenomics Institute.

Support verified groups

Look for Indigenous vendors that pledge to donate the proceeds from sales of orange T-shirts to groups that raise awareness about the residential school survivors such as the Orange Shirt Society _ which also lists official retailers on its website _ or Indian Residential School Survivors'


Take an extra step to research

A simple internet search or stopping to ask the right questions can help you spot a counterfeit item passing for Indigenous art. While most Indigenous products, including orange T-shirts, come with a label, customers should feel encouraged to ask the business owners about the products, sourcing of materials and traditions involved in mak-

ing the item.

Find online businesses

Growing online marketplaces for Indigenous art and products are helping connect rural vendors with urban markets. Spend some more time checking the sites offering authentic Indigenous work and T-shirts, and don't forget to ask questions about where it is coming from and where the dollar is going.

Knowing where your money is going proves crucial for real support

TORONTO — Jaymie

Campbell has been running her beading and quilling business for over five years. It's a money-making venture but for her, it is about more than income.

``It's so much about cultural reclamation and expression,'' said Campbell, the owner of White Otter Design Co. in British Columbia.

``A really unique thing about Indigenous businesses is that so many of us are grounded in the community even when we're confined within capitalism,'' said Campbell, who is from Curve Lake First Nation in Ontario, about 170 kilometres northeast of Toronto.

Campbell's handmade jewelry business reflects the Anishnaabe culture she grew up in. It offers a way to educate non-Indigenous audiences on things such as the material she uses, how it is procured and the importance of traditions and teachings reflected in her work.

Customers should be

aware of where their money is going, and how it is supporting Indigenous communities or businesses, said Carol Anne Hilton, CEO of Indigenomics Institute, a consultancy that offers business services designed with an Indigenous lens.

She said transparency in how money is supporting an Indigenous community is missing when shopping with larger stores.

``Contribution, support and visibility are all important aspects in a purchase.''

Shopping for local Indigenous goodsnot only helps the business owner but by extension, the whole community, said Jacob Crane, the Indigenous entrepreneurship program manager at United College, a University of Waterloo affiliate.

``It has a huge impact,'' he said. ``If I see my friend succeeding in a business, I (may) want to start a business because people are finally buying Indigenous items.''

Crane said a lot of Indigenous entrepreneurs are anxious about starting a business because they don't get enough support in areas that can range from

funding to mentorship.

``They (Indigenous entrepreneurs) don't want to open a business because they're scared that nobody will shop there.''

A success story could change that, he said. To have a model of an Indigenous company, ``it influences a lot of people.''

Besides the financial support and investments, Crane said Indigenous curriculum and tools for business literacy play a strong role in supporting Indigenous small businesses in their entrepreneurial endeavours.

He added customers could also pledge to shop for Indigenous-made items and understanding the history and policies that have affected Indigenous communities would eventually break down systematic barriers _ and support local businesses.

Crane said it starts with asking the right questions, such as: ``Why are things the way they are in Canada? And how do we move away from excluding certain demographics?''

Rob Schulz, founder of the online marketplace ShopFirstNations, said

shopping for local Indigenous items is one of the tangible steps toward economic reconciliation.

``As we think of National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, people often think about what the government is doing,'' said Schulz, whose online platform hosts at least 150 Indigenous businesses.

``But as a consumer, choosing to buy an Indigenous (item) is a tangible step you can take.''

Those hoping to support Indigenous communities for Orange Shirt Day on Sept. 30 could shop with vendors pledging the proceeds back to the Orange Shirt Society or other groups supporting Indian residential school survivors, Schulz said.

For those shopping online, many local Indigenous vendors have started to find themselves a spot in the digital world, gradually closing the long-persisting online gap.

Biskane, an online platform connecting remote Indigenous artists to retailers and shoppers, has built a custom verification process for hosting authentic Indigenous artists and vendors,

helping them earn for what they create.

``People do want to support the authentic experience,'' said Chad Solomon, founder of ``But where do you find that in the online space, with different people coming out with fraudulent experiences?''

Solomon said Biskane was built with the idea of restoring trust within markets and connecting products from rural areas with mainstream, urban cities where people are willing to support authentic products.

``We're looking to build trust so that money actually goes to authenticated artists who need it,'' said Solomon, who is also an Indigenous children's books author. ``So many of our committee members are talented, but getting opportunities to get the top dollar for your art is not always the easiest.''

Solomon, who launched the platform in December, said Biskane _ which means ``to light the fire'' in Aanishinaabe _ not only provides authentic artists with an online space but helps with a tax reporting system

for Indigenous business owners who were unable to get sales tax deductions based on their status card.

For customers doubting their Indigenous item's authenticity, Crane suggested a simple five-minute internet search could help confirm whether the purchase is authentic or not. An Indigenous-made item would generally say where it was made on the artist or company's website.

Most Indigenous business owners are also communicative, so customers should feel encouraged to ask them about the products and sourcing of material.

Schulz agrees. He said people visiting Indigenous markets _ an ideal place to interact with vendors _ could learn about the culture as well as the product.

``If you feel uncomfortable buying a piece of clothing and don't know if you can wear it or not as a non-Indigenous person, just ask questions,'' he said.

``Engage with the entrepreneurs,'' Schulz said.

``Because you're not only learning but also helping them build their business.''

Ways to participate in National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

September 30 marks the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation each year. The day honours the children who never returned home and Survivors of residential schools, as well as their families and communities.

The contributions of Indigenous people in Canada can be celebrated in many different ways. Here are several ways to appreciate and respect Indigenous culture from modern music and museums to literature as we remember the meaning behind the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.

Listen to music: Listen to music by Indigenous artists at home or while travelling. This is one way

Indigenous supports to guide your student journey

A strong circle of support leads to student success. The Indigenous Student Services team at Mohawk College provides:

• Cultural events and programming

• Indigenous peer tutoring

• Coaches and student success supports

for individuals to connect with their own cultures, or for those outside of them to enjoy these creative works. Musician Tom Jackson, who is Métis, entertained audiences across Canada at festivals and coffee houses in the 1960s and 1970s and used his music as a platform for social activism.

Learn and grow: Visit a nearby museum or take a virtual tour of museums devoted to Indigenous culture. The Canadian Museum of History offers a First Peoples Hall that celebrates the creativity and endurance of Indigenous people through displays of thousands of historical and contemporary objects.

Read a book: Delve into the pages of a book written by an Indigenous author. Tom Highway is Cree and worked as a so-

cial worker in Indigenous communities. He began his writing career as a playwright, but also authored novels, children’s books and songs. His works speak bluntly about the tragedies endured by Indigenous peoples.

Purchase handmade decor: Many Indigenous artists make livings selling their wares. These pieces can bring beauty and touches of culture to homes and workplaces.

Dine on good food: Seek out Indigenous restaurants to enjoy new cuisine. Bison long has been a significant resource for Indigenous peoples in northern Canada. Enjoying bison burgers or a hearty bison stew can be a treat. Also try bannock, a biscuit-type bread that is a speciality of Indigenous cooks throughout North America.

Judge finds province has duty to consult First Nations on minerals



VANCOUVER — A British Columbia Supreme Court judge has given the province 18 months to fix its mineral rights system after a court challenge by First Nations who claimed they were owed a duty to consult under the Constitution.

The court's ruling released Tuesday says the B.C. government claimed in court that the system did not ``create adverse impacts'' great enough to

trigger a constitutionally mandated duty to consult First Nations.

The nation's original court petition not only sought to change the system, but also wanted the court to quash specific mineral claims granted on territory where it asserts Aboriginal rights and title, which was rejected.

However, Justice Alan Ross found the province's Chief Gold Commissioner was ``simply wrong'' to claim that it wasn't in their

power to consult with First Nations on granting mineral rights.

The nation claimed the lack of consultation for mining rights on its lands was inconsistent with the Constitution and both the B.C. government's Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act, and the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

The provincial government, however, told the court that B.C.'s adoption

of the UN's declaration didn't actually bring it into law that could be enforced in court, but only set out the government's`` commitment to reconciliation.''

Ross says in his ruling that the case was, to his knowledge, ``the first judicial consideration of the legal effect'' of B.C.'s Declaration Act.

He found that the First Nations were not entitled to any court-granted relief under the UN declaration or B.C.'s legislation that

adopted it.

The decision says the case would likely be the ``first of many opportunities'' for the courts to consider them, adding that he expects the legislation and courts' interpretation of it would ``develop over time.''

The County of Brant joins in wearing orange to commemorate lives lost and to honour the survivors of the residential school system. County of Brant Council
In October 2021, the Gitxaala Nation filed a
petition challenging the province's online mineral tenure registry, which automatically granted mineral rights on its territory without consultation.
The Ehattesaht First Nation filed a similar petition in June 2022, and the B.C. Supreme Court heard the cases together this spring.

On September 30th, the team at St. Leonard’s Community Services will wear our orange shirts to honour those who survived residential schools, to remember all those who didn’t, and to pay our respect for their families and communities. This National Day for Truth and Reconciliation is a time to reflect on a dark chapter in Canada’s history.

It is by shedding light on those darkest passages that we learn from the past and move forward towards a brighter future. We stand in solidarity with our First Nations brothers and sisters. Because, the truth matters, reconciliation matters, and of course, every child matters.

Several First Nations from Ring of Fire region demand meeting with Premier Doug Ford


TORONTO — Leaders of several First Nations from the Ring of Fire region in northern Ontario demanded a meeting with Doug Ford at the legislature on Tuesday, saying they needed to discuss concerns over possible mining in their territories _ but the premier refused their request.

Indigenous Affairs Minister Greg Rickford offered to go in Ford's stead, but that offer was rebuffed by the First Nations.

``We refuse to meet with Rickford, we want to meet with Doug Ford directly,'' Neskantaga First Nation Chief Chris Moonias said on the front lawn of Queen's Park.

``We want him to sign this declaration of respect for the right for the First Nations to say no to mining in their homelands.'' Ford and his government

Liberal's commitment questioned



OTTAWA — Trans Mountain Corp. insisted Tuesday it is committed to ``meaningful engagement'' with Indigenous communities, after it was given the green light to move its pipeline route despite the objection of a First Nation.

The Canada Energy Regulator approved the route change Monday a week after the corporation said the original route was going to take an extra nine months and cost $86 million more to build.

The regulator has not yet issued the reasons for the decision.

The pipeline crosses the traditional territory of the Stk'emlupsemc te Secwepemc Nation, and it opposes the change. It has not yet spoken publicly about the regulator's decision.

want to mine the Ring of Fire for metals to be used as part of a vision for an end-to-end manufacturing chain for electric vehicles and the batteries that power them.

Grassy Narrows, Wapekeka, Neskantaga, Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug, and Muskrat Dam First Nations have created the Land Defence Alliance in an effort to defend their territories in the Ring of Fire.

During question period at the legislature Tuesday, New Democrat Sol Mamakwa, who represents the First Nations in his riding of Kiiwetinoong, asked Ford if he would meet with the First Nations group afterward.

Ford said he's heard positive feedback from various First Nations communities.

``I've heard from the First Nations communities and they have said there's never been a premier that's been more accessible, returning phone calls, meeting with them,'' Ford said to applause from his Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario caucus.

``Those are a different set of chiefs,'' Mamakwa shot back.

Last week, the First Nations group wrote to Ford to meet them outside Queen's Park. Ford shared the letter with Rickford, who offered to meet them.

No one from the government showed up outside the legislature to meet the

First Nations on Tuesday.

The First Nations leaders say they are concerned about the increasing number of mining claims on their traditional territories and want to have input on any mining or development within the region.

``If we have to stand up physically or take some physical action, then we're going to do that,'' said Chief Rudy Turtle of Grassy Narrows First Nation.

``We're going to be blockading, and he'll have to meet us face to face if it comes to that, but that's not our preference, we prefer that we sit at the table, and hopefully he's smart enough to do that.''

Rickford said the government is committed to

``building consensus and balancing the interests of the First Nations communities across that region.'' But meeting outside the legislature, in front of the media, isn't the way the government wants to do business, he said.

``Today's opportunity reflects a set of circumstances that I just don't believe are productive,'' Rickford said.

There are three proposed roads for the Ring of Fire region. One is a road that would connect Marten Falls First Nation with the provincial highway system to the south. From that road, there would be another that would go directly to the proposed mining site, known as Eagle's Nest and owned by Ring of Fire


A third road would connect Webequie First Nation to the mining site.

Those two First Nations are leading an environmental assessment on the road to the mining site and each is doing separate environmental assessments on the other roads.

Neither Marten Falls First Nation nor Webequie First Nation have agreed to anything beyond the environmental assessments.

As of January 2022, there are more than 25,000 active mining claims that are held by 15 companies and individuals, the province's Ring of Fire website says.

NLL adopts unified standings format with updated playoff structure

PHILADELPHIA — The National Lacrosse League (NLL) announced on Tuesday, September 26, that several new structural formats, most prominently a single-table, “Unified Standings,” in which teams are ranked regardless of geography, will debut with the 2023-24 season.

It is the most significant and impactful change to the NLL schedule format in League history.

In addition to the Unified Standings model, notable features of the transition include seven distinct alterations.

Scheduling will be rooted in competitive equitability and schedule parity, with each team playing every other team once, plus four additional “flex” games that preserve es-

tablished rivalries and fan interest, showcase games with impactful storylines, and highlight star player matchups.

The schedule and standings format allows the NLL to definitively showcase its continental reach as a truly North American league; for example, teams in San Diego and Vancouver competing against Toronto and New York for regular season superiority.

Every single game, every weekend, will have a playoff atmosphere and implications on the path to the Championship, while guaranteeing that the best eight teams at the end of the regular season have an opportunity to win the NLL Cup.

Each fan base in every city will have the opportunity to see every team and player visit their home arena at least once every

other year.

The “NLL March to May” playoff format will feature the regular season #1 seed vs. #8; #2 vs. #7; #3 vs. #6; and #4 vs. #5 in the Quarterfinals, with a “bracket” style advance through to the NLL Finals.

The Quarterfinal round will be single elimination. The Semi-finals and Finals will continue to be best-ofthree series.

NLL Faceoff Weekend is set for December 1-2, 2023. Buffalo will begin its defense of its 2022-23 NLL title on Saturday, Dec. 9 at Albany, then will raise its Championship banner at home on Dec. 16.

For the third consecutive year, every NLL game will be distributed on ESPN and TSN. The schedule of national broadcast games on TSN and ESPN linear networks will be announced soon.

The 18th Annual Hamilton Film Festival to screen ‘Rules of Lacrosse’ documentary


HAMILTON — The 18th Annual Hamilton Film Festival is set to take place this October 21 to 29, and this year, the festival will be screening a documentary that covers several themes of men’s lacrosse.

From its rich Indigenous history, the series will dissect forming and maintaining professional teams and their players, the college sport and numerous leagues, the wooden stick controversy, and the growing of the game internationally from its North American roots.

Filmed in Canada, Czech Republic, Hong Kong, Israel, Netherlands, and the United States under the leadership of director Joanne Storkan, this 124-minute documentary will be screened on Saturday October, 28th at 2 p.m., within the Ancaster Memorial Arts Centre, 357 Wilson St E, Ancaster via the Peller Hall.

Elementary 3-pitch tournament sees Oliver M. Smith students in the winning brackets TWO

OHSWEKEN — Both the Junior and Intermediate 3-Pitch tournaments for Six Nations and Mis-sissauga of the Credit elementary schools finalized this week at the Ohsweken Ball diamonds.

On Tuesday, September 19, the Junior Division teams battled it out, culminating in an “exciting” championship game that required extra innings to decide. In the end, Oliver M. Smith Elemen-tary School triumphed over I. L. Thomas Elementary School, with J. C. Hill Elementary School finishing in third.

The following week, on Tuesday, September 26, the Intermediate Division teams came together to earn supremacy. By the end of the tournament, Oliver M. Smith Elementary School finished in first over the Kawenni:io/ Gaweniyo Private School combined with the Everlasting Tree School who received second.

As the Honest Engine Films website explains: “Rules of Lacrosse” were not ripped from the pag-es of the official rule books for men’s lacrosse, but rather by observation over the past years by a screenwriter-turned-producer, who was writing a lacrosse-themed movie script that required a lot of research on the sport, much more than anticipated. After amassing files of the subject of lacrosse, an opportunity arose to produce a film about the sport! Thus, the birth of this

10-part docu-series.

This series covers the A to Z of men’s lacrosse, from its rich, Indigenous history to the present forms of men’s lacrosse, both the box and field games. This series explores several themes of men’s lacrosse: forming and maintaining professional teams and their players, the college sport and numerous leagues, the wooden stick controversy, and the growing of the game internation-ally from its North American roots.

ARIES – Mar 21/Apr 20

There is nothing wrong with a bit of self-indulgence, Aries. But you do not want to go overboard with your treats and other musthaves. Moderation is key in everything.

TAURUS – Apr 21/May 21

You have a no-nonsense bearing that immediately has people drawing close to you and trusting you, Taurus. Put that out in full force as you try to win favor on the job this week.

GEMINI – May 22/Jun 21

Gemini, don’t let your quest for excitement pull you in too many different directions right now. You need to stick to one plan for a certain amount of time and see things through.

CANCER – Jun 22/Jul 22

Everyone wants a piece of you right now, Cancer. It is equally flattering and exhausting. You’ll have to be choosy regarding where and with whom to dedicate your time.

LEO – Jul 23/Aug 23

Listen to the messages swirling around in your head right now, Leo. Your intuition has been on target so there is no reason to doubt yourself now. Keep moving forward.

VIRGO – Aug 24/Sept 22

Virgo, is a particular relationship getting too intense for you? It might be the time to ease up a bit and take a step back. Distance could provide the clarity you need.

LIBRA – Sept 23/Oct 23

Libra, you do not need to struggle if you simply call in a few favors. Reach out to your network of people and figure out how you can make things work.

SCORPIO – Oct 24/Nov 22

Scorpio, do not chase people down, simply wait for them to come to you with your natural magnetism. You don’t want to exert energy this week unnecessarily.

SAGITTARIUS – Nov 23/Dec 21

Sagittarius, rather than showing people all of your cards, hold some information close to the vest and maintain a bit of mystery. Others likely will be intrigued.

CAPRICORN – Dec 22/Jan 20

Capricorn, you may find that things are very profitable for you this week. If you are an entrepreneur, business will be solid. If you perhaps sell on the side, money will flow.

AQUARIUS – Jan 21/Feb 18

Aquarius, for quite some time you have been focusing on everyone but yourself. You have to change your ways if you can get the rest and healing that you need right now.

PISCES – Feb 19/Mar 20

There is no doubt that you’ve earned a few commendations, Pisces. But this week you need to accept congratulations without being boastful. Exhibit both humility and pride.
