Astrological Overview: Last Year/This Year (Myrna Lamb)


In this, my first column for 2002, I offer each of you a brief overview of the coming year and my annual piece of astrological advice. Especially after September 11, when so many innocent people lost their lives, it is all the more important to RESOLVE to get more out of life.

Astrology is a moralistic system. It asks that you use your gifts, talents and positive qualities to handle life's challenges. When the stars seem to be conspiring against you, whether youčre faced with illness, work or relationship conflicts, these gifts inherent to your sun sign, help you to deal with problems.

Within you as an Aries, you have courage, persistence and generosity. As a Taurus, you have patience, practicality and gentleness. As a Gemini, you have flexibility, intuition and curiosity. As a Cancer, you have strength, kindliness and warmth.

Within you as a Leo, you have dignity, responsibility and enthusiasm. As a Virgo, you have common sense, industriousness and modesty. As a Libra, you have sensitivity, refinement and charm. As a Scorpio, you have passion, creativity and resourcefulness.

Within you as a Sagittarius, you have optimism, open-mindedness, and bravery. As a Capricorn, you have reliability, determination and self discipline. As an Aquarius, you have idealism, humanitarianism and loyalty. As a Pisces, you have empathy, introspection and imagination.

RESOLVE to accept personal responsibility rather than to blame others. Knowing another person's sun sign, and the negative traits therein, is not an excuse to blame the other. Rather, knowing those traits in yourself is a way of understanding how you contribute to a problem. Look to yourself in an effort to improve your friendships and family ties. Aries, you can be headstrong, selfish and jealous. Taurus, you can be obstinate, lazy and materialistic. Gemini, you can be changeable, nervous and superficial. Cancer you can be moody, domineering and self-pitying.

Leo you can be intolerant, conceited and patronizing. Virgo you can be fussy, nit-picking and a worrier. Libra you can be self-indulgent, gullible and restless. Scorpio you can be jealous, vindictive and stubborn.

Sagittarius you can be tactless, edgy and irresponsible. Capricorn you can be inflexible, pessimistic and manipulative. Aquarius you can be contrary, erratic and rebellious. Pisces you can be indecisive, discontented and weak.
