Full forcast: at SF chronicle website

STARCAST:  Quick! Light a candle, say an affirmation, a prayer or a mantra.  Mars has begun a fateful tango with Saturn in Libra.  If you've worked hard and paid your dues, this week marks the  beginning of the good karma for which you've been waiting.  If not . . . 


LEO (July 22-Aug, 21)

Jupiter remains ensconced in your hormone house for the rest of the year. Oh! The possibilities. You are so ready for new excitement, perhaps even X-rated, 2009 was so quiet. Loans look good for you, too; perhaps you'll refinance. An inheritance can come to you now, maybe even a bonus. Make a decision on Aug. 9 and expect to see results in November. Other more intimate problems should unkink themselves around that time too.

Leo, celebrate yourselves--you're prime for it!

LEO (July 22-Aug. 21) Theater Evening. Dahling, what could be more superbly divine! After a stunning performance at SF's Curran or Geary, divas will be ready for their close ups at the ultra inn across the street. Hotel Diva is super ala gorgeous and soooo Leo. When the play's the thing, dining divas will think: Location! Location! Location! They can't miss with the Cortez, located just across the street from both theaters. Excellent dinners are served by a staff dedicated to getting their patrons to the show on time. GO: Hotel Diva, 44 Geary, San Franciso (800) 553-1900, Cortez, 550 Geary. (415) 292-6360. Open nightly from 5:30 to 10:30 p.m.

Are The Stars Out Tonight? Ask Minerva

Minerva column: at SF chronicle website

     When Stan Arnold, the San Francisco Chronicle's late great feature editor, asked me to do a Sunday bewitching.jpgastrology column, I was nonplussed.      What did I know about astrology?   Just my sign, (Scorpio), that was it.   Still I wanted a Chron affiliation, had pitched them a number of ideas that went nowhere.   Maybe this was a foot in the door opportunity.    "Shall we use your name?" Stan asked, realizing that he had me.     "No!"   I'd overheard conversations at parties, things like "four planets in the first house" or "Mars ascendant."   It was an exotic, unknown world. What if someone asked me a question?   


To avoid making a fool of myself, I'd keep my identity a secret while studying the stars.  Witty Minerva, a no-nonsense goddess, would be my standard bearer.    Minerva's a deity who calls the shots as she sees them.  An astrologer has to do that too, I soon learned.   There's nothing airy-fairy about this science.  


     Hiding behind Minerva's shield, I learned astrology as I wrote it and was often surprised to see people pouring over the Sunday pink.   "Minerva says this."   Minerva says that."   That was me they were talking about!


     It was several years before I gained the confidence to reveal myself, but here I am!


     Do I believe in it?

     You bet.   Astrology is merely finger pointing at reality.   Get with the program.   Stargazers have been doing it for thousands of years.
