On view at Gallery Porta 34 in Gustavia through April 4 is a special ceramic tile created by artist
VWronique VanderNoot, for the 2008 edition of the Bucket.


























he 13th edition of the Saint Barth
Bucket takes place this weekend-
March 28-30-with another flotilla
of fabulous sailboats, from the smallest,
Wild Horses at 76', to the 163' Perseus,
one of the four Perini Navi yachts in the
race. By mid-week, the mega-motor-
yachts usually anchored at the main docks
in Gustavia had ceded their berths to the
fleet of 29 sailboats taking part in this
year's Bucket, which kicked off with the
captains' briefing at 5pm on Thursday.
Later that day, a welcome cocktail was
held for the owners and participants of the
Bucket.

Around The Island
On Friday
All of the boats were ready to go by
9 'i .m i on Friday, as they headed to the
starting line for first race in the waters off
Corossol for an around-the-island regatta
in a counter-clockwise direction. The
staggered starts began at 11am with all


boats expected back to the dock before
5pm. On Saturday, March 29, the second
race follows an Olympic triangular course
around the little islands to the north of
Saint Barth. The final race on Sunday,
March 30, is a clockwise tour around the
island. The starts are staggered based on
the handicaps given to the boats, the
heaviest-therefore the slowest-go first;
the fastest ones go last.
As far as the weather is concerned, the
website Wind Guru predicts winds from
the East-Northeast at 25 to 30 knots over
the three days of the race with swells
from the North expected to create waves
up to nine feet on Friday, with seas a little
calmer on Saturday and Sunday.
Thanks to the hard work of race organiz-
ers Melanie Smith, Hank Halsted, Tim
Laughridge, and Ian Craddock, in collab-
oration with the Saint Barth Yacht Club,
the Collectivity of Saint-Barth, and the
Port of Gustavia, this event has become
one of the top nautical events of the year
in Saint Barth.


A Charitable Regatta
Every year the organizers donate between 3,000 TICKET
and 7,000 euros to the Saint Barth Yacht Club to
help the development of sailing in Saint TheSt. Ba
Barthdlemy. This year, they will also make a will auctio
donation to the SNSM rescue station, whose this Satur
new boat will provide safety services during the St. Barths
Bucket. In collaboration with other partners, tion will ta

"...We could as
well be in Paris, A
New York, or
London, but we
prefer to be
here!" After
more than
thirty years tra-
velling all around Asia, and the
world, Jean-Pierre Hennequet has
opened his second "GalerieAsie"
in Gustavia, St-Barths, at the back
of the harbour. His first one was
opened on Paris'left bank in the
mid-seventies, after he visited
China as early as 1972.
In Galerie Asie, some visitors feel


p


like being in a
Museum, disco-
vering a very
personal and
eclectic choice,
ranging from
Papua New
Guinea to
Tibetan religious pieces. Jean-
Pierre also shows an impressive
selection of Khmer sand-stone
sculptures, and many smaller
objects from almost every single
asian country. As well as a few truly
exceptional "Museum pieces",
including some from...Africa!

SECURITY NOTICE
O For all Bucket spectators in boats: It is a
wonderful and rare opportunity to be able to
follow the progress of the Bucket fleet in your
own boat However, please be aware that
these giant sailboats move at great speeds
and their capacity to maneuver quickly in
case of emergency during the regatta is extre-
mely limited- that is to say, virtually impossi-
ble! Also, please be careful not get caught in
their wake, do not pass in front of them, and
be sure to leave a maximum of space for
them to move freely. Do not put yourself in a
dangerous position, for your own safety as
well as those in the regatta.
O Notice to the captains of all boats on moo-
rings: During the weekend of the Saint Barth
Bucket, March 28- 30, for security reasons,
you are requested not to move your boat
between 9am-llam and 2pm-5pm.

Fabulous Perini Navi Yachts


In The Saint Barth Bucket


Anyone watching the
Saint Barth Bucket
will be sure to
notice the presence of the
fabulous yachts built by
Perini Navi, one of the
sponsors of the 2008 Saint
Barth Bucket. This year
there are four extraordi-
nary Perini Navi yachts in
the fleet, ranging from the
148' Helios and 152'
Antara to the 154'
Andromeda and Perseus at
163'. The owner of each of
these yachts will be aboard
for the Bucket races.

Perini Navi was established
in the early 1980s with the
aim of creating large, com-
fortable sailing yachts,


capable of being handled
by a single person. Today,
the revolutionary control
systems, designed and
developed by Fabio Perini
and his team, represent the
state-of-the-art in sailing
t hl .'.1n-i. v, and have
become a worldwide stan-
dard in the shipbuilding
industry. Currently, Perini
Navi is the leading ship-
yard in the world to design,
develop, and build its own
sailing yachts. Perini Navi
USA was established in
Newport, Rhode Island,
dedicated to brokerage and
charter services for Perini
Navi yachts

Barth Bucket was 1997,
and I think we have only
skipped one year since. My
first "Bucket" was the 1992
Nantucket Bucket," says
Bruce Brakenhoff, general
manager of Perini Navi
USA, who was born into
the yachting world: "My
father is a yacht broker. He
was one of the two princi-
pals of Bartram & Braken-
hoff, Inc. so I sort of just
slid into the business as I
grew up," he says. "I have
been very lucky to work
for Perini Navi: our boats,
our people, our owners and
our crew are the very best."
When asked if he likes one
boat the best, Brakenhoff
replied: "I don't have a
favorite Perini, I love them
all for their own special
reasons."
In terms of racing, Braken-
hoff notes: "We try and
attend the Newport Bucket,
the SuperYacht Cup, the
Shipyard Cup, and of
course The Perini Navi


Cup. This all depends on
our owners wanting to par-
ticipate too, and to date we
have been very lucky as we
have been able to partici-
pate in lots of regattas." He
also points out that while
Fabio Perini hasn't yet
attended a Saint Barth
Bucket, Mrs. Perini and
their daughter Gulia are
both .illcin;"g for the third
consecutive year in 2008.

"I think the owners, crew,
and participants love the
combination of the cama-
raderie and "competitive"
racing as well as having the
opportunity to be a part of
such an incredible gather-
ing of extraordinary boats
and people," Brakenhoff
notes about the Bucket.
"Saint Barth has great
scenery, lovely weather,
and extremely friendly
locals."

The Bucket History


he first Bucket
regatta was
organized in
Nantucket in August,
1986 by Roger Janes,
Captain of "Volodor",
John Clyde Smith,
Captain of "Man-
dalay" and Peter
Goldstein, owner-Cap-
tain of the yacht "Fly-
ing Goose". After an
evening that evolved
into a copious Mount
Gay Rum debate, the
stage was set for brag-
ging rights. Seven
yachts sailed the first
Nantucket Bucket, a
fifteen mile course in
Nantucket Sound that
was handicapped by
staggered starting
times. Recollections
are vague as to exactly
which yacht won, but

records clearly indicate that
no yacht finished worse than
seventh. A popular event
since the first sailing, the
Nantucket Bucket Regatta
expanded over the years,
along with the size of yachts
in the fleet.
Between 1986 and 2001, the
Nantucket Bucket flourished,
becoming a premier Mega
Yacht regatta that invites
owners and crews of the
world's largest sailing yachts
to sail to peak performance in
a safe venue, in the spirit of
wholesome competition. The
concept of the staggered start,
where each yacht is assigned
its own starting time, creates a
great safety net in allowing
the starting area to be clear for
maneuvering.
FIRST ST BARTHS
BUCKET IN 1995
The first St. Barths Bucket
was launched in 1995, organ-
ized and supported by Cap-
tain Timothy Laughridge and
Isam Kabbani, owner of
"Sariyah", Captain Mike
Fireband, team "Gleam" and
Captain Ian Craddock, team
"Mandalay". In the spirit of
Bucket tradition, all owners,
captains and crews enjoyed
cocktails and canapes while
the starting positions for the
following day's race were
negotiated. Each night a dif-
ferent vessel vied for the
right to host a cocktail party
for all participants. Rumor
has it that this may have
ii, !lli,.iitl the race commit-
tee's decision for the vessel's
starting time the next day ...
FROM NANTUCKET
TO NEWPORT
Following the announcement
that 2001 was to be the last
Nantucket Bucket, the
founders passed the torch to
the present Bucket Race
Committee: Hank Halsted,
Ian Craddock and Timothy
Laughridge. The summer


venue was shifted in 2002, to
Newport, RI, by the New-
port Shipyard.
The St. Barths Bucket has
evolved into a stellar event as
well, with fully 29 yachts in
attendance for the 2008 event.
Indeed, the St. Barths Bucket
has become a celebration for
the entire Island, from the
Capitainerie to the St. Barths
Yacht Club to the Mayor's
office; we have benefited
from their full participation.
As the Bucket Regattas have
evolved, the organizers have
kept a tight focus on main-
taining the original, non-
commercial flavor of the
event. Although the cost of
producing a regatta of this
magnitude is not insubstan-
tial, those costs have been
controlled and subsidized by
direct owner contributions
and their hosting parties
themselves, for their compe-
tition. The yachting industry
has been generous in putting
forward sponsorship for the
event. As such, the Bucket
maintains the feel of an event
put on by owners, and by the
businesses that are supported
by those owners and their
yachts. The Bucket Regattas
have had additional support
from a number of firms from
outside the marine industry
as well, but all in keeping
with the low key, non-com-
mercial flavor of the event.
The reason for the success of
the Bucket Regattas is that
they are primarily about hav-
ing fun aboard the most spec-
tacular sailing yachts ever
launched, in the nicest cruis-
ing areas in the world. The
Bucket provides a safe venue
in which these yachts can sail
to peak performance, with
equal focus on winning the
race and winning the party.

Three "Cats" From Saint Barth in Rolex Cup Regatta


following the
Heineken Regatta in
early March, three
18' catamarans will race in
the colors of Saint Barth
during the International
Rolex Regatta, which is cel-
ebrating its 35th anniversary
in St. Thomas on March 28-
30, the same weekend as the
St Barth Bucket. The win-
ner of each class-there are
a total of seven-receives
Rolex watches. As of Mon-
day, four days before the
first race, 79 boats were set
to participate in the Rolex,
including the three from
Saint Barth. Two are Nacra
"cats" Naccra Steph,
with St6phane Geoffroy at
the helm with Ronan as
crew, and Nacr6 Saint
Barth, with Jeff L6d6e and
Vincent Jordi aboard (They
hope to win the Beach Cats


category). The third Saint
Barth entry is a Cirrus F18,
Ness, with skipper Thierry
Lhinares and crewmember
Anabella De Jesus Silva.
They all flew to St. Thomas
on Wednesday, March 26 to



&A Akaw


get their boats ready for the
first race on Friday. In order
to take part in this regatta,
the three "cats" were sent
by sea container a week
ago, sponsored by Tropical
Shipping. Four of the six
sailors have already taken
part in this regatta on sever-
al occasions, but it is the
first time they have taken
three boats: "Before, we
raced on Prindle," explains
Geoffroy. "But the other
competitors from the
French and Dutch West
Indies decided to race from
now on with 18-footers in
order to avoid ratings and
really race the same boats."
Team Saint Barth hopes that
the Rolex Regatta will
allow them to race against
the American counterparts
they rarely have occasion to
see, and to meet the top
names on the circuit, such
as Puerto Rican Enrique
Figueroa, who at 44
remains one of the leaders
in the field.
After the Rolex, the three
teams will race again in the
le trio Captain Oliver's
Carib Beer Regatta on May
19, followed by the Quiksil-
ver SXM Challenge from


June 20-23, 2008. These
two events take place in St
Martin, with the first ,. iii;
sail from Oyster Pond and
the second, at Orient Bay, is
also open to windsurfers
and kites surfers. In 2009,
they hope to be on the start-
ing line during the
Schoelcher nautical week in
Martinique, but have sworn
not to go back to the
Heineken Regatta, which
did not leave them with
positive memories: "The
buoys were invisibles. It
was extremely dangerous,"
say the sailors, who were
also obliged to navigate
between the bigger boats.



Held in Saint Barth from
1992 until hurricane Luis
took place in 1995, the
CataCup, (a race for cata-
marans as the name indi-
cates) could rise from its
ashes. That is the hope for
the 18' team from Saint
Barth who plans to work
on the project once they
are back from St.
Thomas. Stay tuned to
the Weekly for more
information.

High Seas In The Caribbean

More Bark Than Bite


he boardwalk in Gus-
tavia broke in a few
places. The concrete
boat slip in Corossol split in
two. The deck at Nikki
Beach was in splinters. A
fishing boat overturned in
the port. That's the worst of
the damage caused by high
waves that battered the coast
of Saint Barth from Tuesday,


island's beaches, the North-
ern Islands were placed on a
red alert from Tuesday
evening through Friday
morning. During this period,
swimming and all other nau-
tical activities were suspend-
ed. The Port of Gustavia and
the commercial port in Pub-
lic were closed as well, from
Wednesday noon until Satur-


de Mer, which was lifted up
and broken at several points.
In Public, the campers who
didn't abandon their tradi-
tional Easter campsite were
able to resist the waves. But
it wasn't easy: first thing
Wednesday morning they
spent a few hours digging a
breakwater to hold back the
water. They were obliged to
reinforce the breakwater dur-
ing the night of Wednesday
to Thursday, at the height of
it all, and use plywood as to
reinforce the sand. In Fla-
mands, the waves "ate" the
sand and the beach pretty
much disappeared, but
should return soon, while
more sand was deposited at
the Petite Anse. In Saint-
Jean, the restaurant, La
Plage, found itself ankle-
deep in water but overall the
waves brought more sand to
this part of the beach, which
is currently wider than
before. This is not the case


on the eastern side of the
bay. As of Tuesday evening,
the beach near Nikki Beach
had disappeared. The deck
at the restaurant was dam-
aged and as of this week the
level of the sand is extreme-
ly low. In Lorient, the sea
was very rough, with strong
currents making it very dan-
gerous. Two imprudent
swimmers ignored the warn-
ings not to go into the water
and almost lost their lives
(see opposite page).
That was the story for the
most exposed shorelines...
yet the waves caused joy for
the surfers-even though
some were disappointed that
the swells were not stronger
still-with the best surfers
taking advantage of the big
waves at Kawabonga (the
Ninja cry used as the name
of one of the surf spots at
Grand Fond) and the others
hanging ten at Toiny.


March 18 through Saturday,
March 22. This was an unex-
pected phenomenon-in
terms of the calendar-as
swells like this usually
develop from November
through February, and in
terms of force-with waves
averaging 18 feet, and the
height of the biggest waves
topping 21 feet at approxi-
mately 3:00am during the
night of Wednesday to
Thursday, according to the
wave meter at the Grande
Vigie in Guadeloupe. The
cause was a large storm off
of the North American coast,
rare for this time of year.

Two Days
On Red Alert
Due to the strong swells dur-
ing Easter week when the
local population camps out
in large numbers on the
14


day morning. As a result, all
ferry service was interrupted
for a few days. And the
desalination plant stopped
production as of late morn-
ing on Wednesday. Produc-
tion started again on Satur-
day, once the waters had
calmed down.

Impact On The Island
The Port of Gustavia was
especially exposed to the
swells that came into the
harbor, with high waves
flooding the road near the
new dock in front of
Presqu'ile. The strength of
the waves was strong
enough to move two cars
and knock over a planter. In
spite of the assault of the
waves, the net result wasn't
so bad. This was not the case
for the boardwalk that runs
parallel to the Rue du Bord


Two MEN SAVED
FROM DROWNING IN LORIENT


More scared than anything
else, two men were saved
from drowning while swim-
ming off the coast of Lorient.
They owe their good fortune
to those who helped them:
two fishermen in the first
case and a surfer in the sec-
ond instance. The two men,
one 43 and the other 81,
ignored the prohibition of all
nautical activities that was in
effect between Tuesday and
Saturday morning due to
strong swells from the North
generated by a large storm
2500 kilometers north of the
Antilles. The 43 year-old
man required aid at approxi-
mately 12:30pm last Friday.
Used to swimming in Lori-
ent, he dove in as usual dur-
ing his lunch break. But a
strong current pulled him


more than 300 meters from
the coast, according to wit-
nesses who called for help.
While awaiting the arrival of
the firemen, Jocelyn, a fish-
erman from Lorient, and his
cousin Rene, provided assis-
tance. They got their fishing
boat from its mooring and
braved the unusually high
waves to reach the hapless
swimmer.
The second incident took
place close to 4:30pm the
same day. The 81 year-old
man went into the ocean in
spite of the bad weather con-
ditions. This time, a surfer
provided the rescue.
Both of these incidents could
have been avoided if the two
swimmers involved had
respected the instructions not
to go into the water!

Christian Lacroix, who cel-
ebrated his 20th anniver-
sary in the world of high
fashion, designed the
Haute Couture Evian bottle
in the shape of an ice
queen. He gave it the sil-
hl! 'uill of a princess, creat-
ing a sort of snow fairy
dressed in couture with /
a crown of flowers, a
crystal bottle for her dress,
and a crystal shawl.
The bottle can be seen in
St. Barth from March 31-
April 27. It will go to the
winner in the month of
May after the auctioneer
confirms the highest bid-
der. The Manapany will
have the bottle from March
31-April 6, then the Sereno


from April 7-13, Le Toiny
from April 14-20, and finally
Nikki Beach restaurant in St.
Jean until April 27.

Thirty-six Swedes were
welcomed to Saint Barth on
Tuesday by Nils Dufau, a
territorial council member
who also represents
ASBAS, the Saint Barth-
Sweden Friendship Associa-
tion. With an average age of
60, these visitors came to
Saint Barth with Leif
Hubertsson and his compa-
ny, Caribbean Picture and
Travel, which has organized
trips to Saint Barth during


Easter vacation for the past
21 years. During a cocktail
reception, Dufau briefly
recapped the history of
Saint Barth6lemy during its
Swedish area, and explained
the island's recent political
evolution. Next Friday the
group will head to Saint
Martin for the second part
of its Caribbean vacation,
with a week's stay punctuat-
ed by two days trips-to
Saba and Anguilla.

following shows by
Terry O'Neill and
Richard Prince, the
Eden Rock hotel recently
hosted a show by the well-
known New York painter
Will Cotton. After a three-
week residency at the hotel
over looking Saint Jean bay,
the artist has gone back to
New York but the work he
did in Saint Barth can seen
at Jane's Gallery for a few
more days. Known
for his sumptuous
paintings brim- .
ming with candy,
chocolate, and oth-
er sugary treats, as
well as landscapes
with nude women,
Will Cotton did
not change his
style for his show
in Saint Barth.
With names such
as Ribbon Candy
and Candy Palm,
the nine oils-on-
paper presented at
Jane's Gallery are
an invitation into a
world of volup-
tuous confections.
For the artist, this residency
also allowed him the oppor-
tunity to expand his style:
"While at the Eden Rock I
had the chance to try out
some techniques and ideas
I'd been thinking about for
some time. All the pieces I
made there are essentially
oil sketches on paper, sev-
eral of them in full color,


which was a new experi-
ment for me. I continued
working on the theme of
adornment with four new
pictures of models in vari-
ous kinds of sweet hats," he
says. "As a lot of the work I


make refers to specific
landscapes, I went to St.
Barth hoping to be inspired
by the local terrain. What I
found was that more than
anything else, I kept look-
ing up at the sky, and con-
sequently I wound up mak-
ing a study of clouds as
dollops of whipped cream.
I also became intrigued
with the Eden aspect of
palm trees and made


Candy-', on paper
several versions of the trees
as they might appear in
Candy Land".
Will Cotton is represented
by Mary Boone Gallery in
New York, and has exhibit-
ed -lii.',lugh.ul the United
States and Europe. His
work is currently included
in the exhibition "Voyage A
Giverny," on view at the
Musee Marmottan Monet,
Paris.

Mia Fonssagrives-Solow' s Jewellery

At Swedish Design Centre in Saint Barth


ia Fonssagrives-
Solow has joined
the collection of
contemporary Swedish
designers whose work is on
display at the Swedish
Design Centre of Saint
Barth in Saint Jean
(www.swedishdesigncen-
tre.com). Launched by
Nils and Susanna Pass-
burg, the Swedish Design
Centre offers an innovative
and unique collection of
contemporary and modern
classic objects and acces-
sories of Swedish design,
heritage, and origin.

Mia Fonssagrives-Solow's
link to Sweden is through
her mother, Lisa Fon-
ssagrives, who was born in


Udevalla on the
west coast of
Sweden, and con-
sidered the
world's first top
model (she mar-
ried famous pho-
tographers Fer-
nand Fonssagrives
and Irving Penn).
The lines of Mia's
work reflect the
timeless simplici-
ty of Swedish
design while
asymmetric
shapes add a mod-
ern flair to some
of the pieces. "We
have just one part
of her collection,

ver necklaces,

bracelets and earrings that
are like the pieces of a
puzzle pulled apart," says
Susanna. "The interesting
thing about Mia is that she
has taken the formula of
some of the great Scandi-
navian designers such as
Georg Jensen and Sigurd
Person and translated it
into something new and
quite different."
In the 1960s Mia Fon-
ssagrives-Solow was in the
fashion business in Paris
and when she returned to
the United States, she
became a sculptor, making
larger-than-life-size ani-
mals and large sculptures
too big to fit in most art
galleries. In 1984 she
began making smaller ver-
sions of her work as jewel-
ry and recreated her ani-
mal shapes including
walking cats, swinging
monkeys, butterflies with
folded wings, lions' heads,
and standing meerkats
(African mongooses). Her
24


overall collection includes
gold and silver pins, pen-
dants, earrings, cuffs,
charm bracelets and charm
necklaces. Her work has
been seen from Palm
Beach to The Hamptons,
and she is included in the
National Jewelry Insti-
tute's 2008 Designer
Showcase, which will be
seen in various US cities
-i!!ii ugiI .ul the year.
"We also have some of her
more eclectic pieces,"
adds Susanna. "One is a
very wide cuff bracelet in
solid copper, covered with
gold. Then she created the
pattern of Sagittarius with
small gems like the stars in
the constellation." Another
bracelet is also a cuff, this
time an elephant. "Mia
also does these exotic ani-
mals," Susanna notes. "At
first it looks like a modern
design but then you see the
sculpted movement of the
ears and trunk of the ele-
phant. It's really very
beautiful."

Beautiful Signs To Mark Access To The Beaches


Ceramic signs marking
access to the six principal
beaches of Saint Barth
should be put into place by the
beginning of the summer. The
island recently voted to commis-
sion V6ronique VanderNoot,
who initiated the project, to make
the signs. She had the idea in not-
ing that the access to the beaches
was not well indicated.
V6ronique VanderNoot, an
accomplished artist who has won
the St. Barth painting competi-
tion and created the pottery stu-
dio Blue Gecko, decided to pro-
pose an artistic solution to the
problem. Each sign-measuring
24 x 36"-will be made of 15
ceramic tiles on which the artist
painted the various beaches.
"The sign is a representation of
what can be seen from the beach.
They have the island or islands
that can be seen from there as
well as an element that has sig-

for Senator Barack Obama.
It was so exciting to see
how many people turned
out and contributed to the
campaign of this remarkable
man. Thanks to all of you
for your enthusiasm and
support.

nificance for each beach. For
Lorient, I added a turtle as they
are frequently seen there. You
can also recognize a piece of the
surfers' cabin. The name of the
beach will always be in navy
blue and the other colors are
those of the water and the sand."
Once painted, the tiles will be
fired for 24 hours then mounted
in a marine wood frame that
should u. iihl.,iidi the exterior
weather conditions. The beaches
selected Saint Jean (airport side),
Lorient, Salines, Gouverneur,
Shell Beach, and Flamands.
Using the same technique,
Vdronique designs similar
ceramic signs for villas and
recently completed a large-for-
mat sign-36 x 48" for
AJOE. Under construction is
another one for the elementary
school in Colombier, which
Veronique is volunteering to
make with the students.


And thanks especially to
St Barth Weekly, both the
French and english edi-
tions, for their excellent
coverage of our fundraiser.
This indeed is not only a
beautiful island, but a gen-
erous one, as well."

ARIES (March 21- April 19) :
Concentrate on yourself or your
work. Changes in your domestic
scene are evident. Reciprocate
by offering helpful hints. Visit
friends or relatives who have
been confirmed.

TAURUS (Apr. 21- may 21): Rela-
tionships will be erratic this
week. Although up setting, chan-
ges in your domestic situation
will be favorable. Your fight for
those less fortunate is not likely
to end in sweet victory. Look
into real estate.

GEMINI (May 22-June 21) : Be
careful if a friend asks you for
advice. Based on your excite-
ment, serious-minded indivi-
duals will be more than interes-
ted in backing your ideas. You
are best to be discreet. You can
get ahead if you present your
ideas to superiors.

CANCER (June 22-July 22):
You should spend your day
trying to get things completed at
work. Strengthen your position
among your peers. Compromi-
sing could be on the agenda this
week. Don't hesitate to present
your unique ideas.

LEO (July 23-Aug 22): You will
profit from home improvement
projects and real estate deals.
Look after financial transactions
this week. Don't overspend on
luxury items. Time is money and
you must be ready to take action
in order to reach your highest
potential.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 -Sept. 23) : Nag-
ging has never been something
that you could tolerate, and it's
once again driving you into a
lonely state of affairs. Someone
you work with could try to
undermine you. Keep an eye on
your weight. Don't let anyone

take credit for a job you did.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 -Oct. 23) : You
should visit a friend or relative
who hasn't been well. Be sure to
organize events that will keep
the children busy. This will not
be the day to lend money to
friends or family. Creative
endeavors will give you somew-
hat of an outlet.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 Nov. 22) :
Don't let your jealousy be the
reason for a decaying relations-
hip. You can't do everything on
your own. You may be confused
regarding your love life. You
will upset your partner if you
have spent money on things that
aren't necessary.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 -Dec. 21):
Don't rely on others to do your
work. Be prepared for an active
but rewarding day. Be careful
while traveling. Go out shopping
this week.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22.- Jan. 20):
Include friends and family mem-
bers in your redecorating plans.
You can make amends by taking
them somewhere special.
Someone you work with may be
trying to make you look bad. Be
prepared to encounter new
friendships that will provide you
with valuable information.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 -Feb. 19) :
Social activity with friends and
relatives will be most successful.
Deep discussions may only lead
to friction. You will earn reco-
gnition for the work you are
doing. You will have a little
in. ... ...'. i i1i in usual.

PISCES (Feb. 20- March 20): You
need activity. This is a tuning
point. You're eager to learn.
Refrain from arguing with your
mate.
