PhePhe on Astrology
Today’s Horoscope: Monday, February 9th
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
Josh Holloway has been quoted as saying that while he appreciates the fame and wealth that being a bad boy on Lost has brought him; he wouldn’t wish the sex symbol status on anybody. It goes without saying Aquarius that the one thing you never crave is being in the spotlight. Like Josh, you wouldn’t mind the trappings of fame but could care less about the effect you have on others. Today you may want to avoid any verbal conflict in the work environment if you intend to keep the trust level. Try: crepes and nutella
Pisces February 19 – March 20
In past years One Tree Hill star James Lafferty has organized an annual game of hoops, with proceeds going to children’s charities. This year the game will be called off because of rude, aggressive, and downright creepy fan behavior. This is a major problem with Pisces, normally you want to help others and are the first to volunteer for anything charity related but today you feel out sorts. It’s time to demand that respect be given to you. Shout it from the mountaintop if you have too but don’t let another hour pass with demanding that your feeling be taken into account.
Try: making a sandwich for lunch
Aries March 21 – April 19
The thought to ponder for today is why did the anti-fur movement vandalize Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? Personally you would never deface property; you prefer to work towards change within the system rather than as a renegade outside the system. Today you will find that your interest takes the form of an argument rather than action. It’s all good because you love arguing for the “underdog.” Defend your position and move on rather than belabor the point.
Try: watching a classic on television
Taurus April 20 – May 20
Former pop star Jessica Simpson performed ‘live’ at a chili cookoff in Florida and the media took her to task for gaining weight. Any emotionally sensitive person (you) would know better than to take anyone to task for something as trivial as a weight gain when that woman clearly looks so darn happy. You will experience a Jessica moment — rack it up to insensitive people who have nothing better than to try to ruin your day. Just keep saying to your self, “I am beautiful.” You’ll make it through.
Try: beef patties and coco bread
Gemini May 21 – June 21
Home Depot plans to close 41 stores and lay off over 7000 workers. Starbucks recently announced store closings as well as major layoffs. Could it be that both of these stores grew too fast or it that they never stopped to learn from past mistakes? Whatever the case, today you will get to experience first hand what it means to learn a lesson the hard way. You’ve heard the saying “bought sense is better than taught sense” — today you may find yourself touching that stove over and over even though you have been warned that’s it’s hot.
Try: snow sledding
Cancer June 22- July 22
You notice the silence that precedes every storm but you needn’t worry because today will be peaceful and filled with good Zen. In a lot of ways you will find that promoting yourself and what you stand for easier today. (Think: Zac Efron flashing the peace sign as he and Vanessa Hudgens land in Japan to promote High School Musical: 3) Perhaps the audience is more receptive now that they know you are vulnerable. Keep up the good work — knows you just might get around to shedding that extra layer of skin.
Try: a game of chess
Leo July 23 – August 22
Slash claims his realtors lied him to in 2006 when he and his wife purchased what they thought was a party pad. Recently a judge ruled that his case could move forward. That little scenario plays into that old adage that what you see isn’t always what you get. It’s important to not only read the fine print on documents today but to spend an extra moment looking at any purchases that you make. This is a good time to move forward on creative projects.
Try: having tea instead of coffee
Virgo August 23 -September 22
Rod Blagojevich skipped out on his impeachment hearing and embarked on a major media tour instead. Talk about burying your head in the sand and not facing reality head on. In your case, you may not be in over your head like Blagojevich but you will need to find refuge from the superficiality that is surrounding you. Rather than spend your time in bad company, pretend that you have sudden plans.
Try: eating corn nuts
Libra September 23- October 22
Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart recently celebrated their 8-year anniversary. Those eight years speak volumes considering the Hollywood set switches partners faster than lightening. This is a good day for relationships especially with the increase in your confidence levels. The day will have you feeling warm and fuzzy inside. Take that feeling and share it — reach out and hug someone.
Try: drinking pomegranate juice
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
The ashes of the Star Trek creator and his first lady (Gene and Majel Barrett Roddenberry) will be shot into space in about a year and a half, according to the memorial spaceflight company Celestis Inc. You rarely, if ever, keep score — believing that if you just let life take you where it goes things will work out the way they should. Similar to the Roddenberrys you have never allowed the world to limit what you can or can not do. Yes, sometimes your views are a little unorthodox but no one will ever accuse of you of being a hypocrite.
Try: checking out Lil Wayne’s new rock song
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
It’s refreshing to hear that Drew Barrymore has taken her self off the dating circuit, since breaking up with Justin Long last summer. That’s right Sag, this is the week to keep yourself on track. All those promises that you made to yourself need to be kept. You will experience some financial difficulties today but nothing that need worry you for long. After all today is just 24 hours. Expect some gains in the financial arena soon.
Try: reading two chapters of a classic
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
Take your lead from TV cop Mariska Hargitay, who is “back at work” on the set of Law & Order: SVU, after suffering from a partially collapsed lung. The sooner you get back in the saddle the sooner you will see a slight improvement in that pissy mood of yours. You can expect a higher than normal level of social success today as well as new avenues opening up in your life (career and relationship). Take heed and keep your thoughts to yourself today.
Try: calling an old friend
