Prairie dog turned a bouncing 18 today. Old enough to vote, screw, and join the army. And pop over to to Alberta Quebec and drink.  It’s also Groundhog Day of course. And Imbolc.

Ah ha, but just what other favorite Saskatchewan entity has a birthday today? The Saskatchewan Arts Board! The venerable funding agency turns 63 today. Aw.

Here is an excerpt your horoscope, you guys, first from alarmingly accurate Susan Miller over at AstrologyZone, for the month of February:

The closer your birthday falls to the new moon, February 2, the more intensely you will feel this month’s themes, and the more energized you will become.

Jupiter, the giver of gifts and luck, can’t be at the party for Aquarius, but will send his greetings to Mercury and the rest of the little happy planets by beaming his gifts of good fortune and happy news on February 4 and 5. Both those days could bring you a very lucky break, and possibly even a generous check or gift.

And from pronoia guru Rob Breszny of Free Will Astrology for the rest of the week:

The renegade spiritual sect known as the Church of the Subgenius values one treasure above all others: not salvation, not enlightenment, not holiness, but rather Slack. And what is Slack? It is a state of being in which everything flows smoothly — a frame of mind so unfettered and at ease that the entire universe just naturally cooperates with you. When you’ve got abundant reserves of Slack, you don’t strain and struggle to make desired events unfold, and you don’t crave things you don’t really need. You’re surrendered to the greater intelligence that guides your life, and it provides you with a knack for attracting only what’s truly satisfying. Happy Slack Week, Aquarius! I suspect you will have loads of that good stuff, which means your freedom to be your authentic self will be at a peak.

Slack! Money! Who could ask for more? It couldn’t go to two nicer organizations.
