Power Scopes

POWER SCOPES:  WEEK of MAY 23RD – NEW MOON IN GEMINI Dealing with the death of my sweet dog Bodhi found my horoscopes delayed- that combined with the fact that I deleted nearly 9 hours of writing work early on Tuesday morning with the stroke of one key.  Lessons learned.   Here are the scopes- … More Power Scopes
