Planet Power

Take care of the details until Oct. 1. Then you can prove worthy of the beauty and harmony you ascribe to. Lasting beauty and harmony require correct foundation. Breathe deep the autumn “air” of beauty, Libra. A lot of people are in love right now, have you noticed? Keep your eyes open and hopin’. Peace & Love Shall Conquer All. There are no mistakes. — VIRGO (8.23-9.22) Start something for a partner that peaks in a week. Make it BIG (Jupiter). Make it unusual (the planet Uranus). Make it blue. Shift power from yourself onto others, your brothers, sisters and lovers, for this next Full Moon on the Pisces/Aries cusp, Thursday, Sept. 23. Mercury is direct in early Virgo.…

Woo-hoo! Made it through. Congrats. Meanwhile, back in Astrological mythology, Leo (the “mane” patriarchal symbol of our Sun) and Virgo (the sign of Mother Nature) marry, and Libra (ruling loving relationships) is born. Time (Saturn) for love (Libra). What or who is up to you. Attempt to finalize/realize in one week, when next we speak. Next week we’ll speak of what (or who?) comes after love? Until then, I love you. Peace and love shall conquer all. There are no mistakes. — LIBRA (9.23-10.22) How are the “beautiful people?” Happy Fall, you all! Boom! Money, love and/or sex, NOT necessarily in that order! Venus and Mars are still conjunct in Scorpio until mid October when Mars moves on and…

Please read Libra everyone. This starts a very special week from Oct. 1 until the New Cazimi Moon in Libra, Oct. 7. Magique is afoot, my friend. Transcend, transcend, transcend … Art, balance, design, aesthetics, relationships and love itself will be the key for your harmony. What, may I ask, could possibly transcend love itself? I’ll offer my resolve next week, Inshallah, when once again we speak. All this from the best-dressed barefoot man you know, MOJOPO. — LIBRA (9.23-10.22) BOOM starts the week! This is what you’ve been waiting for. Thus starts what’s meant to be for the next two years. The Sun is conjunct Saturn (which is exalted or most powerful in Libra) at seven degrees Libra…

This weekend the streets are oozing with lubrication. “In a Circle of Magique, in a Circle-round the Sun, in a circle of Love while the sun and moon are One / With the planet of Love ascending, forever rising to it’s Zenith / In a circle never ending, let Venus come between us / Let Venus … Let Venus … come between us.” That’s the Libra tune on the Zodiac album, which will be available soon for $13. Pre-order at — LIBRA (9.23-10.22) Create as much harmony as you charmingly can. In two short weeks, some redheaded fire-breathing, dynamic, dramatic, daring dragon is due to blaze across your sky.

The Jump

Growing up in a tiny town with one cracked asphalt court that had an actual chain-link “net,” tennis was one game that wasn’t on my sports radar. Basketball, soccer, football, hockey, hurling, lacrosse, Gaelic football, horse racing, rugby, field hockey, golf, I’ve seen all of those played professionally, but never tennis. That’ll change Dec. 3, when Omaha native Andy Roddick and tennis legend Pete Sampras hit the Qwest Center for Rock-n-Racquets. The charity event — $2 from each ticket sold will be donated to ConAgra’s “Shine the Light on Hunger” program — returns to Omaha after a stop here in 2007. Rock-n-Racquets, founded in 2002, has never made a return trip to a city it has already visited. Omaha’s growing…

Messin’ With Texas

Once upon a time (actually, not all that long ago), the Nebraska football team enjoyed such respect. Season after season, the Cornhuskers were in the national title conversation. They’re back in that conversation following a 48-13 victory at Kansas State, televised nationally last Thursday night by ESPN, and coupled with South Carolina’s 35-21 Saturday upset of Alabama; the latter was the defending national champion and ranked No. 1 in both major polls. Nebraska moved up to No. 5 in this week’s Associated Press media poll and No. 4 in the coaches’ poll, where it even received two first place votes. The last time the Cornhuskers were ranked as high as fourth was prior to the 2002 Rose Bowl game against…
