ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
Did you know Joseph Pulitzer, founder of the Pulitzer prize, was an Aries? It’s true. Pulitzer started off as a newspaper man and then became a leading national figure in the Democratic Party. Pulitzer was elected congressman from New York and crusaded against big business and corruption. Pulitzer is also credited with keeping the Statue of Liberty in New York. All in all he was a pretty stand up guy that consistently stood on the right side of history. I think it is safe to say, Pulitzer was governed by his conscience and wanted to make the world a better place. The next couple of weeks may test your character and you may find yourself in a position where you could do some serious good in the world just like Pulitzer. Remember to be good and good things will happen. Inhale some sativa hybrids during the day and check out Kendrick Lamar’s, ‘DNA”.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
I see you twisting and turning in the wind, but I am not sure if you are going anywhere. Kinda like one of those opulent white horses bejeweled with large fake rhinestones continually spinning on a never ending merry-go-round. Don’t be one of those fake, comatose horses, blinded by the comfort of repetition and that which is familiar. Now is the time for you to break free like a black stallion leading a harem of horses through an Arabian desert. Think of the next couple of weeks as your time to choose your own destiny and breakfree from your old merry-go-round ways. Take charge and don’t be afraid to let the reins go and allow your dreams to manifest. This ain’t no dress rehearsal, carpe diem my brave bull! For a little inspiration take a view of the Sundays interpretation of ‘Wild Horses’ and inhale some Grandaddy Purple. We all need a little purple perspective from time to time.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20)
2018 has just begun and the astrological omens tell me you have been through some real serious shit and your world was turned upside down and inside out like dirty laundry spinning in a wash machine. Yet, you and yours have triumphed through this turmoil, coming out of it stronger and wiser. I see an intense and resilient synergy surrounding and protecting you. Embrace this time and use it to execute the plans floating around in your head. This is your time to put all the pieces in place and allow all the players to come together. Which brings me to your song for the week, Lennon’s, ‘Come Together’.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
You are a special breed Cancerian. I don’t like to play astrological favorites, but I gotta admit you are my favorite sign. I just can’t help but love your constant caring and how you love your family and friends. You love and you give and you try beyond heroic measure to keep the peace among all those around you. For this I will always love and admire you. I wish and hope you always remember what a blessing you are and what an amazing contribution you make to all those lucky enough to have you around. Inhale a 50/50 hybrid this week and think all things you. And, please, love you like I love you. I am hearing Sister Sledge and ‘We are Family’ for your weekly groove.
LEO (July 23- August 22)
Leo, my fierce and ferocious lion, you have been through more shit in the last three or four months than you have probably been through in your entire life. I mean really, the universe has been throwing conflict, strife, test after test for too long. How much more can one take? Not much, and the omens suggest things are a changing for you. Please do your part and let go of the need to always be on for others. Take time to realize it’s okay to be human and run at a comfortable pace. Make sure to inhale lots and lots of indica in the evening to let all that tension and worry go. Make sure to listen to lots of reggae, try some Marty Dread and Inner Circle, ‘Have you ever seen the rain’.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
In the next coming weeks I want you to be hyper aware to accentuate any positive when a negative may occur. Look for the silver lining in any cloud that may appear and see the blessing in any disaster that may hit you like a hurricane rolling in from Jamaica. Try to keep all things in perspective and don’t sweat the small stuff. Sounds trite I know, but this will get you through alot if you let it. And, inhale heavy indica strains like my fave, Grandaddy Purple, in the morning and evening and maybe at noon too. Listen and absorb Bob in all his glory.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
Conflict and confrontation have been your two best friends lately. Neither constant companion seems to want to leave your side. But, they will and they are….no more fighting and arguing. The time is ripe for you to adhere to one simple rule: Follow your heart and all things that move you. Don’t allow your enigmatic brain to interfere with what the heart wants. Allow your inner child and all his/her needs come to the surface and embrace the direction destiny is trying to take you. All will be well, don’t worry so much. Inhale indica dominant strains and release yourself from the responsibility of being you. And, please let go and do ‘The Hustle’.
SCORPIO (October 23- November 21)
Scorpio, hear me loud and clear, 2018 is your year to do what you have always wanted to do. The planetary cosmos suggest you are primed for obtaining whatever it is that means the most to you. The only requirement is you will have to work for it and discipline yourself in an unprecedented manner. All you have to do is do what you normally do just do it for yourself. Make sure to focus on what you want from your life. Meditate with some Sour Diesel and remember only you have the ability to make your life the best life ever. Take a look back at KC and the Sunshine Band for your weekly musical mantra. Disco rules.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
Do you have any idea how many times Madonna has reinvented herself with a different persona? Go ahead and try to guess? At least 25 times since she began touting her midriff in the early 1980’s. Visualize, ‘Lucky Star’ Madonna, then ‘Like a Virgin’ Madonna, who bounced to Marilyn Monroe Madonna with ‘Blonde Ambition’. I could go on, but you get the point. No matter your opinion on Madonna’s musical contributions to society, she has undoubtedly reinvented herself more times than most. I want you to embrace Madonna’s madness for reinvention and create your own new persona. Now is the time for you to shed your skin and become anew. Think about how wrong people can be and listen to your instinct. Madonna always does. Inhale lots and lots of indica to help yourself relax and be. Listen to some, yes, you got it, Madonna. She was and will always be a badass and we could all take note.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorn, the holidays and your birthday are over and it’s time to focus on the practice of aloha. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t been to the islands lately or ever for that matter. Aloha isn’t just a Hawaiian word for hello and goodbye. Aloha is a state of mind, a way of life, and it is available to all creatures inhabiting this world. One of the earliest lessons taught to Hawaiian children and the lesson I want to gift to you is below. Learn it, know it, live it.
Aloha is being a part of all, and all being a part of me. When there is pain – it is my pain. When there is joy – it is also mine. I respect all that is as part of the Creator and part of me. I will not willfully harm anyone or anything. When food is needed I will take only my need and explain why it is being taken. The earth, the sky, the sea are mine to care for, to cherish and to protect. This is Hawaiian – this is Aloha!
Drink in Aloha, inhale some indica heavy doobers and listen to Hawai’i Aloha | Song Across Hawai’i | Playing For Change Collaboration.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
The astrological omens suggest clouds are forming and the sea is storming when it comes to your love life. I am compelled to give you some unsolicited advice. Don’t ever invest too much energy in anybody who doesn’t see the human in you. And, always, gravitate towards those who make you laugh. Life is so precious and when you share time with people who have the magical ability to make you smile, you in turn shine, giving love back. It’s a beautiful thing and you have an excellent opportunity to benefit in epic proportions. So, sit back, inhale your favorite strain and watch Bobby McFerrin. Don’t let the goofiness distract you.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
I love the way you and those in your tribe prize and live for romance. I also love that Pisceans are deeply spiritual and sensitive and often see the world through rose tinted glasses. Don’t ever let anybody criticize this most integral part of your nature. For you to be without romance and neverending optimism would be like a fish to be without water. And, we all know how much fish really like and live for water. So, remember to be true to you and inhale some dominant indica doobers in the evening to relax and unwind. Also, check out this classic by Faith no More. I am pretty sure no animals were harmed during filming.
PUFF, PUFF, PASS and be kind.
