New years and Free Will Astrology!

So, New Years, 06 six-sixteen P.M. eastern standard time. Ten parties to choose from. This is much more severe then the Pepsi challenge, the only loser or winner would be Coke. No possible way to cover so much urban ground in one night unless I got a flying zip-carpet. To make matters worse it is supposed to snow tonight and make the roads tricky, add drunk drivers and cops to the equation and chances of going from one place to the next fail even more. I have been invited to a couple of grand parties that will be pumping(snobby guestlists!) but whats the point to being out on New Years and not being with at least one good friend.
Lately I have been in an artmaking craze, no surprise there, see website When I am making alot of good artwork and very into my process, I sort of temporarily lose the party urge. When I am in party mode, I don't always have the good artmaking urge. It would be nice if both aspects made better bed partners. If I just made art all the time I would completely non-social and vice-versa. Anyway this is always an exciting night, kind of the World Series of Partying, I would say I am in practice but have been slumping lately. So I wish all of you reading this a happy and safe new year, whatever part of the world your in.
I am attaching the BEST astrology on the PLANET! Peace be with U, Scott.....

Grammar key: Asterisks equal *italics*

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Thai coffee salesman Prayoon Thongiorn owns
a pet crocodile. So thoroughly has he tamed the creature that he lets
sleeps in his bed with him, even resting his head on it as if it were a
I predict that you will make a comparable conquest in 2006, Aries. Some
dragonish influence that would be risky for most people to harbor will
become your ally. Congratulations in advance on both your courage and
the ingenuity you will summon to wrestle that beast into submission.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): "We live in a world with too much music,"
writes Joe Nickell at He's bothered by the fact that
everywhere he goes, there are tunes pouring from cell phones and mp3
players and TVs and radios and live bands. As far as you're concerned,
though, Nickell is utterly off-base. In 2006, you should take advantage
the profusion; you should immerse yourself in music more than you ever
have before. To do so will be instrumental in helping you accomplish
top assignment in the coming months, which is to feel deep, rich,
interesting emotions as often as possible.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Many Geminis fit the description of a class of
people that *Wired* magazine calls "yeppies," or "young experimenting
perfection seekers." Overwhelmed by a profusion of conflicting
opportunities, they are restless and insatiable. They treat life "as an
exercise in comparison shopping, refusing to commit for fear of missing
better offer." While this approach is pretty normal for your tribe, I
suspect it won't work as well in 2006 as it has for you in the past.
why I urge you to try out some very different attitudes: a tolerance
imperfection, a respect for limits, an appreciation for the value of
of mind, and a willingness to concentrate on just two or three
instead of 17.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): The coming months will not be a time for less
talk and more action, my fellow Cancerian, but for *more* talk and more
action. Here are other prescriptions to help you get the most out of
2006: Go on wilder adventures and entertain fewer superstitions.
in fewer mood swings and invest in an experience that will serve as the
best anchor you've ever had. Explore your secrets more aggressively,
keep fewer secrets. Work harder to know the difference between true
intuitions and fearful delusions. Feel less remorse and more
Cultivate wetter love and dryer humor. Commit yourself to faster
promise-keeping and slower fault-finding.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): I know people who love the feeling of family but
who don't have much contact with their parents and siblings and haven't
started their own broods. Instead, they quench their longing for an
intimate network by hooking up with a spiritual family--a tribe of
minded people who share their values. The coming months will be prime
time for you to either find a group like that or, if you already have
one, to
deepen and expand your web of connections. You don't have to sacrifice
your relations with your biological kin to do so. The more family you
the better your mental health will be.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In her book *Women Who Run With the
Wolves,* Clarissa Pinkola Estes talks a lot about fairy tales. As a
psychotherapist, she recognizes that the conditions they depict are
similar to how the deepest part of the psyche works. A central theme of
fairy tale justice, she says, is that it's always a good idea to be
kind to
people who don't seem important or beautiful or cool. Characters who
honor that principle are invariably rewarded, while those who spurn it
punished. This will be a key idea for you in 2006, Virgo. You can't
to dismiss those you consider your inferiors, nor should you demonize
less attractive aspects of your own nature. Your success will hinge on
care you take with underdogs.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): I have selected a quote by Irish playwright
Brendan Behan to serve as your motto in 2006. I suggest that you write
it out on a piece of red paper and place it in a prominent place like
bathroom mirror or computer monitor. "If you have a talent, use it in
every which way possible," said Behan. "Don't hoard it. Don't dole it
like a miser. Spend it lavishly like a millionaire intent on going

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Widely regarded as a top military historian,
Martin van Creveld has written books that have been influential in
modern theories of warfare. The U.S. Army makes his work required
reading for its officers. That's why it was so remarkable when he
described America's invasion of Iraq in 2003 as "the most foolish war
since Emperor Augustus in 9 BC sent his legions into Germany and lost
them." I urge you to regularly imitate Creveld's example in 2006,
Speak out in dramatic fashion against the follies that your expertise
you the right to critique. Drawing on your special experience and
knowledge, make rigorous evaluations of the authorities and
whose decisions affect your life.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): "Dear Rob: I'm a very analytical person,
with a doctorate in nuclear physics and a high-tech job. All my
and business savvy tell me that your astrology column is superstitious
bullshit, yet every time I've faced a crisis in the last ten years,
horoscopes have provided accurate wisdom and counsel when things
seemed darkest. On the one hand this makes no sense, and on the other
hand I don't care that it doesn't make any sense. Somehow I'm able to
draw sustenance from something whose power I don't understand or even
believe in. In any case, thank you! -Humble Sagittarian Genius." Dear
Sagittarius: In 2006, you Sagittarians will have the chance to benefit
many phenomena that fit the description you applied to my column. Open
yourself wide to mystery.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Germany and the Soviet Union failed to
sign a peace treaty after the global hostilities of the mid-20th
Technically, then, World War II never officially ended. This lack of
doesn't seem to have had any lingering repercussions, though, so I
worry about it. On the other hand, there are unresolved situations from
your past that are still causing you problems. In my astrological
2006 is an ideal time to finally wrap up all the unfinished business
has been subtly draining you. It's a perfect opportunity for the
karmic cleansing, preferably carried out with grace, gratitude, and

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In 1503, wealthy silk merchant Francesco
del Giocondo commissioned Leonardo da Vinci to paint a portrait of his
wife Lisa. But when Leonardo finished the work, now known as the "Mona
Lisa," del Giocondo was so dissatisfied with it that he refused to pay
it. It seems he didn't recognize its value. I offer this as a teaching
for you, Aquarius. Please make sure that when you get what you ask for
in 2006, you don't make the same mistake del Giocondo did. Eagerly
welcome your dream-come-true, even if it's different from what you

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): In his book *The Disappearance of the
Universe,* Gary Renard quotes the counsel of his teacher: "A jet
airliner is
always going off course, but through constant correction it arrives at
destination. So will you arrive at yours." Remember that advice
throughout 2006, Pisces. My analysis of the astrological omens suggests
that you will be frequently straying from the path of your highest
and yet that's exactly what needs to happen in order for you to reach
your highest destiny. Forced to keep making regular adjustments, you
tone and strengthen your willpower, which is essential to you achieving
the goals that really matter.
