Astrology
FLICKR/IKHLASUL AMAL PHOTO
Jim Motavalli is the author of the book High Voltage: The Fast Track to Plug in the
Car Industry. 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.
LIBR A (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): When novelist James
Joyce began to suspect that his adult daughter Lucia was

O
ne of the story lines this mean
election season is that the Obama
Administration dumps billions on
alternative fuel and electric vehicle/battery
companies, which then go bankrupt. 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

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

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.
