   WEEK OF Oct 17 tp 24, 2014

is now posted for your review

   and for today by Flo Higgins

  TUESDAY,  OCTOBER 21, 2014

IF ANYTHING GETS IN YOUR WAY TODAY you better look around and find out what you are doing that might need  some work. After all the Moon is in Libra making no heavy aspects to any planet.

The Moon in Libra is often good for romatic relationships and  so today might be a good time to look at your relationships, see if they meet your standards and then think about doing something to correct them. Not today but after Saturday when Mercury is once again direct.

Now if you are a Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini or Virgo y ou might want to be just a little careful since you might be feeling the anger Mars sometimes brings. After all Mars is in Sagittarius. That means the above signs could be challenged.

Of course there is a New Moon in Scorpio and a Solar Eclipse on Thursday and some of us react to the New Moon vibes just as we react to the Full Moon. So today if you are upset and life goes wrong you could say it is the New Moon causing the emotional nonsense.

Then Mercury goes direct on Saturday, but that should only bring a smile, not a problem. Also Mars is in its final days of Sagittarius. This could cause a problem or two for Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemin i and Virgo.

So for most people today should be OK, without too much misery or pain. It certainly can be a divine Libra Moon day.


Mpst 17 year olds are hanging out at school, with boys their own age, but if you are part of the KARDASHIAN  REALITY TV CLUB you would be touring Eruope with your 24 year old boyfriend.

So naturally the youngest of the club, KYLIE JENNER, a Leo born on August 10, 1997 is reportedly seen in London, Paris, Italy and then in Greece with TYGA, who is a Scorpio born on November 19, 1989.

The couple is reportedly touring since TYGA, a singer will be in concert in Greece. In the meantimedaddy BRUCE JENNER is telling TYGA to watch out since he is protective of his youngest child, KYLIE.

CHARLIE SHEEN, a Virgo is some generous guy. Seems is engagement to porn star BRETT ROSSI has ended and CHARLIE has let her keep the $100,000 engagement ring, plus all the gifts he gave her during their time together.

Although JENEL PARRISH  and VAL CHMERKOVSKIY  of   "Dancing with the Stars" are a couple, they almost lost their role in DWTS last night.

Intead it was Actor JONATHAN BENNETT,  who was dumped from the show. His score was the lowest and so off he went.

The other two with sad faces when they almost received the good bye message even tho they are a romance.  They  may now be super couple in their minds, but in viewers and the judges minds they better improve or they will be gone. 

They are fire and water. JANEL is the sexy sign of Scorpio born on October 30, 1988 and VAL,  the fire sign born on March 24, 1986.\

It might be time to spend more time rehearsing and less time in love or they will be yesterday's news.

In the meantime V AL'S brother MAKS is still seeing his former DWTS partner MERYL DAVIS of Olympic fame and he is reportedly in love. Seems to me they are both Capricorns. Makes a great pair of power people. 

LADY GAGA, an Aries just bought a $24 Million compound including a mansion in California. This is her first west coast home. It includes all the posh stuff the rich must have, like swimming pools, plenty of bedrooms and baths , bowling alley, swimming pools and whatever.

The razzle dazzle of the stories told by KESHA  and her Mother are mind blowing concerning the actions of Dr. Luke, who was KESHA'S show business producer, mentor or whatever  . KESHA is a Pisces born on March 1, 1987. She was born on the same day as JUSTIN BIEBER,  only seven years earlIer.

Dr. Luke was born in 1973, but the date is unavailable. Maybe he is a secret Scorpio. Anyway he has been charged with all kinds of terrible activities by KESHA, who is also trying to get out of her contract with Dr. Luke.

Kr.Luke has produced and written songs with most top rock and roll, rap stars in business today. He has worked with KELLY CLARKSON, MILEY CYRUS, KATY PERRY and the list just goes on and on. Then he has won all kinds of music awards, plus his songs and productions have been hit after hits. Dr. Luke grew up in New York City and was born LUKASZ SABESTIAN GOTTWALD.

RICKI LAKE, born on September 21,1968 is devastated. Seems her second marriage, which is merely two years old , to CHRISTIAN EVANS, a Gemini born on June 13, 1981 has come to a close.

Word is she threw him out of the condo and he went to stay with his former girl friend. Now that would devastate anyone. VICKI has long been in show business and is the mother of two sons from her first marriage.

Her Hollywood home is on the market for $9.7 Million. The official announcment of the pending divorce is expected today.

Bachelorette DESIREE HARTSOCK, an Aries born on April 8, 1986 received a big surprise yesterday when ABC announced there would be no TV wedding. Why? She is too boring.

Imagine a boring Aries. Anyway she is sset to marry CHRIS SIEGFRIED, her true love she found on the Bachelorette. Re[prts say DESIREE was upset and disappointed. But let's face it unless you are a routing , tooting character in these times you are considered a bore. 

   AMANDA BYNES might be having a problem adjusting to the confinement of her latest rehab experience , after all she is an Aries and has her natal Moon in Capricorn and that would do it.Plenty of stress starting at birth.

The Sun and Moon are both in challenging aspect to her natal Neptune. Amanda was born on April 3, 1986 and with a strong Neptune would will have a problem dealing with mystical, magical reality. And that is certainly a problem facing AMANDA, her reality.

                       WEEK AHEAD  Oct, 17 to 24, 2014

Aries (March 21 to April 20) If life is not looking better it would be wise to reflect on the changes you want to make. An old relationship could be putting a drain on your emotions and could need some serious reflection. With Mars about to move into aspect to your Sun start thinking change because it is coming.


   Taurus (April 21 to May 20) You may feel that letting go is hard to do, but unless you make a move shortly, the move will be made for you. And know now that unless you control the adjusmtns you won’t like them. So the answer is make plans for a move. And keep smiling all the way to the bank.


  Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Going back and trying to pick up the pieces of a broken friendship is impossible and certainly unproductive. So use the wisdom you have picked up on your journey and ignore the mishaps of some old pals.There is no sense trying to hold on the a dead horse. Give yourself a deadline and then let go and move on.


 Cancer (June 21 to July 20) Don’t let anyone else’s family issues make you feel trapped in a friendship. You need your space free of drama so you can get your work done. Since you are such a great caregiver you sometimes get yourself involved in issues that are out of your territory. It is best to just listen and let it be.


  Leo (July 21 to August 20) There seems to be one challenge after another in your life. You often think when one door closes another opens and there is always a problem to be solved. The latest situation you are faced with should keep you busy for weeks. It could be time to  turn off your phone and rest for a while. But since you can’t The warning is watch out..


 Virgo (August 20 to September 21) When there is one crisis after another it is difficult to maintain your usual poise, but keep trying. A good pal could offer some sound advice concerning your latest love. It might be smart to consider the manner it was given and go from there. /Avoid making a move until the 25th of the month.


Libra (September 20 to October 21) It does not take long to straighten out some of the upside down situations that are now in your life. You have been the target of some people who don’t really deserve your tender loving care. So cut your losses as gently as possible and think about moving on to another friendship. It will be wiser to back down immediately than wait until the limb breaks And you are hurt.    


 Scorpio (October 21 to November 20) As your life begins to expand you will find it is necessary to cut down on the surplus around you. In doing so you will feel free of some of the cumbersome demands you put on yourself which you no longer need. In making the cut back you will happier than ever. So start taking inventory today.  


 Sagittarius (November 21 to December 20)  There are few Sagittarians who have not felt the wrath of Mars during the past five weeks. Finding fault is often traced back to the tension Mars forces on humans. So deal with the tension in a mild mannered way and say little or nothing in anger.  Delay decisions until  the 25th when Mars leaves Sagittarius.


Capricorn December 21 to January 20) As you continue to eye even higher career goals be aware that others are watching you with some discomfort. It is obvious to everyone that you are on your way. It is time to remember confident people are very generous and kind. As you move forward know what goes around comes around. Act accordingly.


Aquarius (January 21 to February 20)   The minor changes you have been dealing with will pay off shortly. So get ready to edpress yourself in new ways and also deal with new people moving into your life. If you want them to stay be encouraging and offer to help. Plus you need to prepare for new ideas from pals.


 Pisces (February 21 to March 20) With Neptune riding high in Pisces it is wise to cling to your goals and ignore negative people. Otherwise you could get caught up in a Neptune trap. An old friend continues to be interested but smart people would leave it completely alone. An old friend could help with your latest venture which will be a success.
