Seeing Stars - Your Roller Derby Horoscope
Seeing Stars - Your Roller Derby Horoscope By Ivana Crushyu
For the month of November 2012
ARIES (March 21 to April 19)
This month is fantastic for forming new partnerships. Cooperation is in the air. Maybe you’ll find a great training partner, or perhaps you suddenly start to truck and trailer block like a champ.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20)
Something you do leads to praise from a person you respect. As a consequence, you’ll spend the rest of the month feeling great about yourself. Confidence gives you a better boost than clean bearings (although, you should clean your bearings, too).
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20)
Romance, romance, Twin. It’s there for you in the first half of the month. Enjoy yourself, but be circumspect: That is to say, if you MUST date your leaguemates, keep it nice.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22)
The first half of the month is all about home base. You might miss practice to paint, clean or entertain family. Watch your patience in the second half of the month. Ever-increasing responsibilities make you surly and accident-prone.
LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22)
Hunker down until the 20th, at which time you’ll get a pass until the end of the year. Hooray! It’s like the inside line just opens when you skate up to the pack.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)
You like jammer-on-jammer action, but not so much when you’re the jammer being … jammed. Take it all in stride. Sometimes you’re the one laying a hit and skating away. Try to focus on that when you’re picking yourself up off the floor this month.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)
You’re all about bright, original ideas and the execution of those ideas. Problem is, you want it done right now, and you’re going to have to be patient. In derby as in life, timing is everything – that is, if you want the hit to matter.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
Self-image and how to perfect yours are the subjects on your mind, dear Scorpio. This is your time to consider how you, your teammates and your fans see you. Make adjustments so you like all the views of you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)
You are concerned with fund-raising this month. It’s great to skate, but somebody has to pay for that practice rink. Reconsider revenue streams that looked like too much work a few months ago.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
You’re restless. It’s understandable. Burn it off. Take a cross-fit class or put your energy into speed-skating. Something. Don’t let excess energy turn you into a flake or a grouch.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)
Reach out to those on your contacts list that you might not have heard from in a while. Go skate a practice with the local league when you travel. Someone with whom you have tenuous ties has something to teach you.
PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20)
You know how to avoid second-guesses? Do your research and avoid being reactionary. When you break a rule, the real penalty isn’t the time you spend in the box, it’s that people who were counting on you have to play without you. Think about the ripples you create.
BORN IN NOVEMBER:
Q:Who is the cutie with the frizzy hair that sold beer, but hung out in the dj booth for the RHPS event?
Q:I've been having the hardest time finding elbow pads to actually be snug around my elbows. Would it be looked down upon if I sewed on a longer strip of velcro to my elbow pads so that my pads will actually be snug?
Not at all!
