You can e-mail him at [email protected] TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Is happiness mostly just an absence of pain? If so, I bet you’ve been pretty content lately. But what if a more enchanting and exciting kind of bliss were available? Would you have the courage to go after it? Could you summon the chutzpah and the zeal and the visionary confidence to head out in the direction of a new frontier of joy? I completely understand if you feel shy about asking for more. You might worry that to do so would be greedy, or put you at risk of losing what you have already scored. But I feel it’s my duty to cheer you on. The potential rewards looming just over the hump are magnificent. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): I’ve got some medicine for you to try, Gemini. It’s advice from the writer Thomas Merton. “To allow oneself to be carried away by a multitude of conflicting concerns,” he wrote, “to surrender to too many demands, to commit oneself to too many projects, to want to help everyone in everything, is to succumb to the violence of our times.” It’s always a good idea to heed that warning, of course. But it’s especially crucial for you right now. The best healing work you can do is to shield your attention from the din of the outside world and tune in reverently to the glimmers of the inside world. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): No false advertising this week, Scorpio. Don’t pretend to be a purebred if you’re actually a mutt, and don’t act like you know it all when you really don’t. For that matter, you shouldn’t portray yourself as an unambitious amateur if you’re actually an aggressive pro, and you should avoid giving the impression that you want very little when in fact you’re a burning churning throb of longing. I realize it may be tempting to believe that a bit of creative deceit would serve a holy cause, but it won’t. As much as you possibly can, make outer appearances reflect inner truths. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In Christian lore, the serpent is the bad guy that’s the cause of all humanity’s problems. He coaxes Adam and Eve to disobey God, which gets them expelled from Paradise. But in Hindu and Buddhist mythology, there are snake gods that sometimes do good deeds and perform epic services. They’re called Nagas. In one Hindu myth, a Naga prince carries the world on his head. And in a Buddhist tale, the Naga king uses his seven heads to give the Buddha shelter from a storm just after the great one has achieved enlightenment. In regards to your immediate future, Sagittarius, I foresee you having a relationship to the serpent power that’s more like the Hindu and Buddhist version than the Christian. Expect vitality, fertility, and healing. CANCER (June 21-July 22): I dreamed you were a magnanimous taskmaster nudging the people you care about to treat themselves with more conscientious tenderness. You were pestering them to raise their expectations and hew to higher standards of excellence. Your persistence was admirable! You coaxed them to waste less time and make long-range educational plans and express themselves with more confidence and precision. You encouraged them to give themselves a gift now and then and take regular walks by bodies of water. They were suspicious of your efforts to make them feel good, at least in the early going. But eventually they gave in and let you help them. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In Lewis Carroll’s book Through the Looking Glass, the Red Queen tells Alice that she is an expert at believing in impossible things. She brags that there was one morning when she managed to embrace six improbable ideas before she even ate breakfast. I encourage you to experiment with this approach, Capricorn. Have fun entertaining all sorts of crazy notions and unruly fantasies. Please note that I am not urging you to actually put those beliefs into action. The point is to give your imagination a good work-out. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): In the spirit of Sesame Street, I’m happy to announce that this week is brought to you by the letter T, the number 2, and the color blue. Here are some of the “T” words you should put extra emphasis on: togetherness, trade-offs, tact, timeliness, tapestry, testability, thoroughness, teamwork, and Themis (goddess of order and justice). To bolster your mastery of the number 2, meditate on interdependence, balance, and collaboration. As for blue, remember that its presence tends to bring stability and depth. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): I’m not necessarily advising you to become best friends with the dark side of your psyche. I’m merely requesting that the two of you cultivate a more open connection. The fact of the matter is that if you can keep a dialogue going with this shadowy character, it’s far less likely to trip you up or kick your ass at inopportune moments. In time you might even come to think of its chaos as being more invigorating than disorienting. You may regard it as a worthy adversary and even an interesting teacher. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In the creation myths of Easter Island’s native inhabitants, the god who made humanity was named Makemake. He was also their fertility deity. Today the name Makemake also belongs to a dwarf planet that was discovered beyond the orbit of Neptune in 2005. It’s currently traveling through the sign of Virgo. I regard it as being the heavenly body that best symbolizes your own destiny in the coming months. In the spirit of the original Makemake, you will have the potential to be a powerful maker. In a sense you could even be the architect and founder of your own new world. Here’s a suggestion: Look up the word “creator” in a thesaurus, write the words you find there on the back of your business card, and keep the card in a special place until May 2013. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You need more magic in your life, Pisces. You’re suffering from a lack of sublimely irrational adventures and eccentrically miraculous epiphanies and inexplicably delightful interventions. At the same time, I think it’s important that the magic you attract into your life is not pure fluff. It needs some grit. It’s got to have a kick that keeps you honest. That’s why I suggest that you consider getting the process started by baking some unicorn poop cookies. They’re sparkly, enchanting, rainbow-colored sweets, but with an edge. Ingredients include sparkle gel, disco dust, star sprinkles -- and a distinctly roguish attitude. Recipe is here: tinyurl.com/UnicornPoopCookies.

It’s why the name Solyndra is probably not lost on you. (“Legitimate rape” has probably entered your lexicon, too, but that’s for other reasons.) I was startled to hear that as governor of Blame Jakarta traffic jams Massachusetts, Mitt Romney actually visiton subsidized fuel. ed and lauded a state-based solar plant that then went bankrupt, taking more than $6 million in state funds with it. Back then, the moderate version of Romney promoted a green energy fund as a “major economic springboard.” In fact, Lowell’s Konarka Technologies closed down its solar operations June 1, the very day after Romney had made a big noise Half shuttered page vertical: 4.915i x 10.5i standing in front of Solyndra’s gates in California. Now Worldwatch Institute is doing us all a favor by pointing out that the world subsidized renewable energy by $66 billion in 2010. Sure, that’s a lot of money. But in the same year it provided $775 billion to ease the path of fossil fuels. And it’s likely to be $1 trillion in 2012. We pay for all that subsidized gasoline and diesel. The National Academy of Sciences estimates that fossil fuel subsidies “cost the U.S. $120 billion in pollution and related health costs every year.” Political seasons don’t encourage much use of subtlety. Basic points — Obama wastes taxpayer dollars on green energy, ballooning the deficit — are hammered through. Now I’m not saying that investing $500 million in Solyndra was a good idea, but the solar industry tanked for complicated reasons, including Chinese industries churning out cheap panels, which were mainly exported here and to Europe. It doesn’t fit in a soundbite. Fossil fuel subsidies are nearly invisible, what Alex Ochs of Worldwatch calls “hidden costs, or externalities.” They affect us big-time, though. “Local pollutants from the burning of fossil fuels kill thousands in the U.S. alone each year,” Ochs said. “And society makes them cheaper to continue down their destructive path.” Now this is interesting. No less an authority than the International Energy Agency (IEA), says that if we phased out fossil fuel subsidies by 2020, global oil consumption would go down nearly four percent that year alone. So we can reduce foreign oil dependency, something we say we all want, by not spending money. The same reduction would cut emissions of carbon dioxide, the major climate gas, by 4.7 percent in 2020 (and 5.8 percent in 2035). I don’t hear Obama making a campaign plank out of eliminating fossil fuel subsidies, but if he framed it property he might pick up some votes. The New Haven Advocate Fossil fuels will receive $1 trillion in subsidies this year mentally ill, he sought advice from psychologist Carl Jung. After a few sessions with her, Jung told her father that she was schizophrenic. How did he know? A telltale sign was her obsessive tendency to make puns, many of which were quite clever. Joyce reported that he, too, enjoyed the art of punning. “You are a deep-sea diver,” Jung replied. “She is drowning.” I’m going to apply a comparable distinction to you, Libra. These days you may sometimes worry that you’re in over your head in the bottomless abyss. But I’m here to tell you that in all the important ways, you’re like a deep-sea diver. (The Joyce-Jung story comes from Edward Hoagland’s Learning to Eat Soup.) August 30, 2012 A Campaign Issue? ARIES (March 21-April 19): I’m afraid your vibes are slightly out of tune. Can you do something about that, please? Meanwhile, your invisible friend could really use a Tarot reading, and your houseplants would benefit from a dose of Mozart. Plus -- and I hope I’m not being too forward here -- your charmingly cluttered spots are spiraling into chaotic sprawl, and your slight tendency to overreact is threatening to devolve into a major proclivity. As for that rather shabby emotional baggage of yours: Would you consider hauling it to the dump? In conclusion, my dear Ram, you’re due for a few adjustments. 27 By Jim Motavalli By Rob Brezsny User: pmorlock Time: 08-28-2012 13:35 Product: NMTabloid PubDate: 08-30-2012 Zone: NMM Edition: NewHaven Page: Advocate_28 Color: K OLYMPIC TRIVIA ACROSS 28 August 30, 2012 www.ct.com/newhavenadvocate 1 Starbuck’s boss 5 Salute with pomp 9 2008 Olympic tennis champ 14 Snack on 19 Torch song topic 20 Taj Mahal town 21 Green spa brand 22 As prompted 23 Olympians leading the opening procession 25 Country never in the Olympics 27 Relay’s last runner 28 Pound or bang 30 Stirs up 31 Lawyer’s concluding words 34 Trojan War hero 35 Jumper’s muscle 36 Igniter of the Olympic torch 40 1900-1920 Olympic event 44 Ulysses star Milo 45 __-de-boeuf (oval windows) 46 Sign in again 47 Charlemagne’s realm (abbr.) 48 Avril follower 49 Nary a 51 Mounted 52 Far from drab 53 Pub quaff 55 Foul callers 56 Venue for 9 Across 57 Wild thing 58 Sawer of logs 60 Olympians only since 1900 63 Operatic melody 65 Poetic “before” 66 Took a look at 67 74 78 79 80 82 83 84 85 87 88 89 90 91 93 95 97 98 99 100 103 105 109 111 114 115 116 117 118 119 120 121 BOSTON GLOBE CROSSWORD PUZZLE DOWN Ancient Olympic event Cricket-loving region Ready to go Cards, et al.
