FOR  WEEK OF AUG.29 to Sept. 5

 and for today by Flo Higgins


MUST ADMIT THE PREDICTIONS OF YESTERDAY hit me right on target, hook line and sinker. Sparks were flying and life went on. Amazing how quickly even an Astrologer can get caught up in the nonsense Mars can bring.

AS FOR TODAY the Moon in Scorpio will be Void of Course from 11:40 A.M. until 1:17 P.M. when it goes into Sagittarius and the vibes of life will relax.

 So expect little from the A.M. hours and you won't be disappointed. The day will start with the Moon square Venus. Not a good space for relationships. 

Just before the Moon goes VOC at 11:40 A.M. it will make a minor aspect for good to Mercury. But it would be wise to wait until  the afternoon when the Moon is in Sagittarius to have a talk. So if you have even a minimum of self control stay away from big talks in the A.M.

Otherwise the day is rewarding and tonight the dancing could be divine. So hang in there. Also remember Full Moon is in one week. The week before is always emotional no matter who you are.


Certainly my laugh of the day was the story that DONALD STERLING, the former owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, an NBA team and his wife SHELLY celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary  together poolside in Newport.

DONALD is a Taurus born on April 26, 1933, plus he is worth $190 Billion. So guess if you have that much money you can call your wife any kind of names and she will come back and celebrate the marriage.

To add to the mirth of the situation the couple is still separated and estranged. How sophisciated can they be.

Maybe money does not buy happiness, but it sure let's you do exactly what you want when you want to do it.

Don't believe me find JUSTIN BIEBER, a Pisces and ask him if it isn't true.He will certainly say yes.

LIBRA folks need a partner and NICK CANNON is a Libra born on October 8, 1980. He has a new girlfriend, JASMINE /SANDERS, who is 20 years younger than his wife MARIAH CAREY, who is the mother of his two children.

According to RADAR On Line, NICK, the charming host of "America's Got Talent" he has been paying the rent on his new girl friend's apartment for some time. JASMINE is new to the entertainment world and is trying to make a name for herself.

And his new 23 year old girlfriend has even taken to posing in the exact poses MARIAH graced her latest albums with. And it seems MARIAH , who has been jealous of her husband had every right to be worried.

And then we have the couple's three year old twins. It's sad.

If you ever think political connections are not important, think again. CHELSEA CLINTON, and we all know who she is just quit a $600,000 job she has held since 2011 as a NBC special news reporter.

She is a Pisces born on February 27, 1980 and she had no journalism experience what so ever when she landed  the cushy job. There was plenty of shock when people found out what her salary was.

And guess where the daughter of the former president will work. She will be at the Clinton Foundation. Probably at the same salary. She and her husband are expecting their first child and there you are. Another true story of how the other half lives. Don't remember seeing any of her work on NBC. Even NBC admitted she hadn't produced many big stories.

It came as no surprise when KARINA SMIRNOFF a Capricorn born on January 2, 1978, a professional dancer on "Dancing with the Stars," voiced some ethical concern.

KARINA has questioned the possible conflict of interest and the ethics of having JULIANN HOUGH judging her brother DEREK,  during the upcoming   DWTS season.

jULIANN was recently named a judge and says she is extremely fair. Maybe DWTS officials feel viewers will tune into the show to see if JULIANN is fair.

But some do feel it will be tough judging your own brother's work.

SCORPIO KENDALL JENNER, born on November 1, 1995 is joining the ranks of Madonna, Adele, Cher who use only their first names professionally.

So 18 year old KENDALL will be known in the modeling world and then in the world only by her first name.

Don't you sometimes wonder how JENNY MC CARTHY,  an intense Scorpio gets so much negative press. Here she was  marrying her true love, DONNIE WALHBERG, a Leo, in New York   yesterday and we read the brother and mother of the groom wasn't there.

Seems MARK WALHBERG and his wife don't really like JENNY and DONNIE'S mother doesn't fly. MARK said for publication that it was his daughter's birthday yesterday and he had to stay for the party.Sounds good, but missing your brother's wedding.

JENNY was born on November 1, 1972 and DONNIE on August 17, 1978. Even this partnership is faced with challenge. Two fixed signs together is wild. And DONNIE will have Saturn squre  his Sun by the end of the year and into 2015.

Fhe latest information available at midnight today about JOAN RIVERS tells us to keep her in our prayers. Seems, JOAN, who is a Gemini born on June 8, 1933 is in serious condition after a cardiac incident on Thursday morning.

They are now telling us JOAN is in a medical coma and within the next 24 hours a decision on the next step to be taken medically will be made.

Her daughter MELISSA arrived at Mt. Sinai Hospital late Thursday with her son COOPER. She has been at JOAN'S bedside since. MELISSA was born on the cusp of Capricorn and Aquarius on January 20, 1968.

 Another Gemini TONY STEWART born on May 28, 1971 will be back on the NASCAR competion this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway. But before going back TONY issued a sincere apology to KEVIN WARD JR'S family. Plus the NASCAR has changed its rules . Race car drivers are not allowed to get out of their cars after an accident unless the car is on fire or about to blow.

He has  not been in a NASCAR race since he was involved in the fatal sprint car crash that killed KEVIN JR. during a race in New York state.

The accident, which happened when WARD got out of his car and was in the raceway when hit by STEWART. The event is still under investigation  

They pulled it off. A complete family wedding and no one really knew about it until yesterday. BRAD PITT and ANGELINA JOLIE got married in their Chateau in France  last Saturday and it did not hit the internet until yesterday.

Their children were involved and close friends and family. They finally made it legal after plenty of children and almost 10 years together.  The couple went back to work almost immediately, BRAD, a Sagittarius went off to England and ANGELINA, a Gemini was in Italy working on a new film, which she wrote and will direct.

New book to be released on September 30 "The News Soceity" by SHEILA WELLER should be on your list of must read books. WELLER is a New York Times best selling author and holds top writing roles at "Glamour" and "Vanity Fair" so needless to say she knows her way around.

The latest book  tells the inside story of two Capricorn women, KATIE COURIC and DIANE SAWYER and their need for power and control of the news room. Seems there was no love lost between the two news women and the author tells all.

COURIC was not renewed for her afternoon talk show and SAWYER left her ABC "World News" post just two days ago born on December 22, 1945 , SAWYER is 68 years old.
