Begin to bloom like never before. Remember that wishes made to stars can come true as long as you are willing to work for what you wish for.
Don't let this chance pass you by. Every single day brings you another chance to do the right thing. You only live this life once so you might as well try your hardest to get it right the first time. Wear green on Wednesday.
Learn to let go. Don't let it all be for nothing. Something good can come of this. Eat more veggies.
Love takes work, but also should provide a refuge from life's tribulations. Keep your head up but don't look down your nose at others just because their POV might be different from you.
Be sympathetic to the feelings of others. You have done a good job and you will be rewarded. You should eat more fish. Drinking lemon wedges and water is great for your skin.
Have you ever considered learning a martial art? You need physical activity to bring you balance. Remember when you used to spin in a circle until you fell down? Just remember that feeling throughout the week. Consider saving for a trip to Italy.
Inside all of us is a wild thing, but especially inside of you! If you haven't seen Where the Wild Things are, make plans to see it with that person you are wild about. You really need more exercise this week to stay balanced. Eat apples.
What would you do if no one was watching you? Remember that other people's standards don't matter. What do you think of what you do? If you honestly think you are doing your best, then keep at it. If you know you could try harder, do it! If you something you are doing is wrong, stop doing it! Sounds simple enough, but sometimes we need reminders.
Perhaps you should go see a therapist and really really be honest. You aren't perfect. You know there are things you could improve. You owe it to yourself to work on healing and improving. Spend more time in the fresh air.
If you could pick three people to paint portraits of who would they be? Would you pick people you admire or people you don't like to be the subject of your portraits? If you feel inspired by hate, you really need to look in the mirror and try to be more positive. Remember that the opposite of love is indifference. Remember that you should work on yourself.
Let music provide an escape for you. Red wine is much better for you than white. Drink green tea with lemon in the afternoon is better than coffee. Donate or volunteer at a local animal rescue place.

TO THE VIRGINS, TO MAKE MUCH OF TIME.
by Robert Herrick
GATHER ye rosebuds while ye may,
Old time is still a-flying :
And this same flower that smiles to-day
To-morrow will be dying.
The glorious lamp of heaven, the sun,
The higher he's a-getting,
The sooner will his race be run,
And nearer he's to setting.
That age is best which is the first,
When youth and blood are warmer ;
But being spent, the worse, and worst
Times still succeed the former.
Then be not coy, but use your time,
And while ye may go marry :
For having lost but once your prime
You may for ever tarry.

Note: The shortest month is ending and we found ourselves in the Year of the Tiger. I decided to give everyone a quote from a Beatles song this month. I'm not even the biggest Beatles fan but their lyrics have a certain quality that fits with the whisper of the stars this week. Regular fortunes will return next week.
song: ACROSS THE UNIVERSE
"Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup,
They slither while they pass, they slip away across the universe.
Pools of sorrow waves of joy are drifting through my opened mind,
Possessing and caressing me. "
"Well, if you don't want my peaches
honey please don't shake my tree
If you don't want any of those peaches
honey, please don't mess around my tree ."
song: DO YOU WANT TO KNOW A SECRET?
"You'll never know how much I really love you,
You'll never know how much I really care,
Listen, do you want to know a secret,
Do you promise not to tell, Whoa . . . . .
Closer let me whisper in your ear,
Say the words you long to hear,
I'm in love with you, oo . . . . . "
"I can show you that when it starts to rain,
Everything's the same,
I can show you, I can show you.
Rain, I don't mind,
Shine, the weather's fine.
Can you hear me that when it rains and shines,
It's just a state of mind,
Can you hear me, can you hear me?"
song: THREE COOL CATS
"Three cool chicks
are walking down the street
swinging their hips,
splitting up a bag of potatoe chips
I think cool cats really did flip.
Three cool chicks
Three cool chicks."
"Well I woke up this morning,
Lucille was not inside.
I asked her friends about her,
but all their lips were tight.
please come back where you belong."
song: IN SPITE OF ALL THE DANGER
"In spite of all the danger,
in spite of all that may be
I'll do anything for you,
anything you want me to,
if you'll be true to me. "
song: GETTING BETTER
"I've got to admit it's getting better
It's a little better all the time
I have to admit it's getting better
It's getting better since you've been mine. "
song: ALL THINGS MUST PASS
"All things must pass
none of life's strings can last.
So I must be on my way
and face another day."
song: LITTLE QUEENIE
"Meanwhile I was thinking
She's in the mood, no need to break it
I got a chance, I ought to take it
If she'll dance, we can make it
Come on Queenie, let's shake it
Go go go little Queenie
Go go go little Queenie
I said: go go go little Queenie"
song: LADY MADONNA
"Friday night arrives without a suitcase
Sunday morning creeping like nun
Monday's child has learned to tie his bootlace.
See how they'll run. "
song: PIGGIESHave you seen the little piggies crawling in the dirt?
"And for all the little piggies life is getting worse,
Always having dirt to play around in.
Have you seen the bigger piggies in their starched white shirts?
You will find the bigger piggies stirring up the dirt,
Always have clean shirts to play around in. "

Think positive thoughts. The universe is coming together to keep you safe. Look inside yourself for strength. Do the right thing. Make travel plans with someone you love. Happy Year of the Tiger!!!!!!
Don't let a third party influence how you view someone you love. You have always known that you belong together and that is still true. Maybe they took so long to come around because they didn't want to get hurt AND they wanted to be really sure first so they didn't really hurt you either. Be sweet. Be forgiving. BE YOU!!!!!!!
Don't sell yourself short. Be fair. Keep the faith. Remain vigilant. Yet never settle for someone who doesn't appreciate you or get you. You deserve someone who is crazy about you even if you are crazy sometimes. You have made much progress in the Year of the Ox and you will make great strides in the Year of the Tiger. Consider the more obscure art forms such as designs in cappuccino froth.
Have you ever felt like you might be doing something just for the sake of being mean? Instead of pointing the finger, ask yourself what really motivates this behavior. If you are insecure, work on yourself instead of wasting energy gossiping and tearing down others. You know you really do have a good heart. Don't wear shoes that hurt your feet. Combine fashion and comfort.
Get out your old Get Up Kids cd or that old Ja Rule or Lauren Hill. You'll be surprised at how well some old favorites fit with stuff going on now. Be flexible and generous. Take pictures of the clouds this week.
You can't get no satisfaction? Try counting your blessings. Try counting the stars. Try counting the kisses that have really been exceptional. If you haven't had enough of these kisses, get out there...
How many times will you go through this? Work on breaking bad habits. Find inventive ways to make extra money and donate half of that extra money. Every one should have jeans and black boots in their closet, but not too many pairs of each!!!! Simplify your wardrobe. Keep everything in line with your personal style.
Things will work out for the best in the end. Work on things with the one you love. Be brave. Be honest. Be active. If you haven't researched the Chinese Zodiac you should do that this week. You can learn a lot from basic Feng Shui principles as well. Watch a movie that seems out of the realm of your usual interest. You might discover a new interest in this way.
Stay active this week. Remember that love is UNconditional. If you put conditions on someone than you don't love them. And if someone puts conditions on you they don't love you. Over half of all people give in to temptation. Don't you strive to be above average? Happy Year of the Tiger!!!!!
Give your mom some flowers this week if you can afford it. Visit a thrift store this week. Even if you don't buy anything it could be fun. Two wrongs don't make a right. You are less crazy than you think. Practice self-control.
Love takes work. The infatuation wears off in all relationships. Just because you are no longer infatuated doesn't mean you are no longer in love. Be positive. Find an unusual place to make out. Spend more time in the sun. Avoid adultery. Avoid foods with too much sugar.
Stay focused. Take walks this week. Have you donated to help Haiti yet? Get on that. Go to a cozy diner for late night pie this week.

card: KNIGHT OF WANDS
You will make real progress this weekend in your biz. This card indicates fast moving deals and positive decisions. Action!
card: PAGE OF WANDS
This card indicates that urgent matters will need your attention this weekend. There will be much communication, but you need to asses if the Page is all talk with little actual follow up. Resist acting without thinking. Consider the details.
card: FIVE OF SWORDS
You battle hard this weekend for an unattainable goal. It is more brave to walk away. Love should come on its own. If you have to chase it it isn't love.
You will get a second chance this weekend. You can make peace. You can succeed.
card: THREE OF WANDS
This weekend is great time to start something new: new art or a change in heart maybe? As a bit more cash comes your way, you can use it to pursue your creative goals.
card: TEN OF PENTACLES
Great things are in store for your finances this weekend. Don't let family members interfere with your desires.
card: THE MOON
This weekend you will doubt your position with a certain person and you will need to use your intuition as a guide. Everything moves in a different way in moonlight. Examine this relationship beyond just the surface. Look at your longings that don't surface at the light of day. A risk is involved that could take you away from familiar surroundings, you'll have to make this choice on your own.
card: QUEEN OF PENTACLES
You will use your blessings well this weekend.
card: ACE OF CUPS
The ace symbolizes femininity, the yin. You might fall in love this weekend. You also might give birth to a masterpiece.
card: FOUR OF CUPS
Beneath the surface you feel dissatisfaction coming in. Don't give in to petty problems. Every relationship has an ebb and flow like the oceans. Ride the tide. Appreciate the emotional investment in your partnership and rekindle the romance. Otherwise boredom could become unhappiness. Remember that keeping romance alive takes effort. It is worth it.
This weekend brings resolution, balance and fairness. Agreements will be reached to your advantage, provided you have acted with due fairness in the past.
card: KING OF SWORDS
You have much ambition this weekend and that is a good thing. Don't let an attention to detail derail you. Pressure yourself to do your absolute best.

We live in a world where not even the sky is a limit. Don't forget that you have more power than you think. Try making flan or tres leches at home this week. Make a red or pink collage for your sweetie. If you don't have a sweetie make a collage for your ma. If you don't have a mom or a sweetie make a collage for your fridge. Your theme song for the week might just be "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" by the Beatles.
Donate things you haven't used in over a year. Plan an adventure for this weekend. Valentine's Day is whatever you want it to be. You could go out on a date or stay home and make soup. Leeks are healthy and good in soup. You don't need company to have fun. Remember the party is where you are! Your theme song for the week is "Me, Myself and I" by Beyonce.
Turn the other cheek. Forgive but don't forget. If you don't have a pet go to an animal rescue group to find one. Companion rabbits make great pets and plenty need homes. Fish are also great pets for pisces. So are mermaids. Give yourself a valentine mix cd. Order Thai food and find your independence while he's gone and then give em a kiss. Your theme song this week is "Sweet Jane" by the Velvet Underground.
Have you quieted the voices in your head yet? They say that nicotine reduces the hallucinations of schizophrenics. I'm not saying you should start smoking but if you are still hearing voices you might as well try something. Avoid any type of hallucogen this week, including 3-D imax. Your theme song for the week is "Valentine" by the Get Up Kids.
Do you notice that inner glow some people have? Well you have it too. Yes you. Move your body this week. Smile at strangers. Read a biography of some one you admire. Get yourself some new draws for Valentine's day. You don't need to limit your fantasies to one gender. Think of Angelina if you want to. Or Brad. Or both. Your theme song this week is "Moon River" from Breakfast at Tiffany's.
Eat more greens this week. Consider a seaweed moisturizer. Go to an art gallery with your sweetie on Sunday or paint something together. Don't forget that Chinese New Year is on V-Day this year. Research your Chinese Zodiac sign. Make a compatibility chart for you and your boo or wanna-boo. Your theme song this week is "Light My Fire" by the Doors.
Consider Aikido. Buy a treat for your favorite dog. You are down but not out. By that I mean that you are in a funk sometimes but overall you are doing well. Give someone a massage this weekend. Your theme song this week is anything by Shakira or the Supremes. Sam Cooke is good for you this week as well.
Enjoy your life to the fullest. Count your blessings and count the stars. Maybe you should get physical. Practice moderation in most things. Italian food will be romantic on Valentine's day. Celebrate Year of the Tiger! Your theme song this week is "When Doves Cry" by Prince.
Hello my friends who love to organize compulsively. Keep a food diary. Make an effort to eat only unprocessed food this week. Remember how much you loved faeries? Don't forget that. Don't take it too far, but don't forget it. Faeries are forever. Your theme song this week is the music from the "Where the Wild Things Are" movie. They are in you too!
Raw oysters will put them in the mood this V-Day. If you don't celebrate V-Day watch Foxfire. What was the real reason Winona Ryder and Johnny Depp broke up? No one knows. Love is mysterious. Don't try to figure it out. Don't fear your own shadow. Try an apple a day and miso soup. Your them song this week is "What a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong.
Love your body. You have nothing to be ashamed of. No one has a perfect body and everyone does, ya feel me? Read parts of THE STORY OF O to your honey boo this weekend. Few people can resist your charm. Play them like a violin. Slow and hard. Get in touch with your cousin. Your theme song this week is "Underneath It All" by No Doubt.

card: QUEEN OF PENTACLES
Grace will favor you this weekend. You are successful and giving. Give your closest friend a surprise gift or meal.
card: TWO OF WANDS
This card indicates a creative meeting of the minds this weekend. If you have faith in your skills you can achieve financial stability. Keep trying in love and work. Your efforts will be rewarded.
card: KNIGHT OF CUPS
This card indicates dreamy ambition. You might meet someone who talks the talk, but can they walk the walk? Remember that 50 Cent song from a few years ago "21 Questions." Don't be afraid to ask questions of someone courting you. If they can't take it, they aren't strong enough for you.
Approach conflict with poise and logic. Keep control of your emotions. Be aware of the yin and yang within you. Balance.
card: QUEEN OF SWORDS
This card indicates a witty and protective woman. You will have such a woman by your side this weekend; but remember that you never get anything for free.
card: SIX OF SWORDS
You may have an opportunity to travel. You have a lot of work left to do but you can afford to take a short break and evaluate all you have accomplished so far.
card: THE SUN
You have much to be thankful for this weekend. This card indicates joy, innocence, creativity, growth and a safe place.
card: THE FOOL
An open door offers potential but may involve risk. Look both ways before crossing the street. If a venture is worthy it will withstand your caution. This card also indicates something unexpected.
card: FIVE OF SWORDS
Your current battle brings few spoils as your goals in this matter are unattainable and unworthy. Give up this fruitless fight. Pride comes before the fall - ALWAYS. Sometimes the true brave choice is walking away.
card: PAGE OF CUPS
This card represents a youthful attitude, but it might also indicate low self image. Be supportive and reassure those you love.
card: THE DEVIL
You have a devil on one shoulder and an angel on the other, we all do. Listen to the angel this weekend. The devil's advice sounds good but in the end will leave you trapped. A relationship or job has become imprisonment instead of liberation. Protect your future. In one big leap you can free yourself.
card: NINE OF WANDS (reversed)
You may be stressed this weekend. Rest and take care of your health.
