The Advocate HOROSCOPE


Aries (March 21st-April 20th): Your mind should be sharp and well-focused this week. Take advantage of this energy and study anything you have been putting off. Now is a great time to learn new skills that will better your career opportunities in the long run.


Taurus (April 21st-May 20th): This Friday’s new moon falls in your health sector. The time for change is now in regards to diet and exercise. Don’t set unrealistic goals for yourself though, instead start making small changes and doing more research to better educate yourself.


Gemini (May 21st-June 20th): This weekend is all about showing off what you have learned through experience Gemini. Any problems you have been experiencing at home or work are likely to be issues you have experienced before. How did you deal with it back then? Repeat that solution.


Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd): Right now the planets are encouraging you to clear the air in your relationship. Anything that seems to be getting avoided in communication should be put on the table. Speak up and talk about your plans. There is a good chance you are both on the same page, and just didn’t know how to start the conversation.


Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd): The new moon on Friday will have you feeling motivated for self-improvement. Not necessarily the kind of self-improvement you may normally think of like diet and exercise. Instead the planets are encouraging you to love yourself more. Connect with your roots and true self this weekend by taking part in an activity you have loved your whole life.


Virgo (August 23rd-September 22rd): Green with envy this week Virgo? Keep on a happy face and think before you speak. The energy right now may have you feeling a bit sorry for yourself (so unlike you!) Be careful of accidently sounding dismissive or uninterested when someone you love is excited to share news with you.


Libra (September 23th-October 22rd): The new moon this week may cause some old emotional baggage to come up. Did you really let it all go when you thought you did Libra? Don’t suppress these feelings, but face them dead on. Let yourself feel it all, and then let it go completely.


Scorpio (October 23rd-November 22nd): Keep thinking positive this week Scorpio. The power of your mind to manifest everything you want is at an all time high. Venus, the planet of love, is in your sign and this will give you that little extra sparkle you need to attract your desires. Enjoy it while it lasts!


Sagittarius (November 23rd-December 21st): Be careful with your word choices this weekend when you see a good friend. Your intentions are good but may be easily misread. Review conversations after they happen and clarify when you can- a few corrections are all you’ll need to prevent problems.


Capricorn (December22nd- January 19th): The new moon this week will influence your relationship greatly. Has there been something bugging you for quite some time but now you are ready to snap? Communicate calmly and your partner will respond well. As annoyed as you are, this is going to be cleared up very soon.


Aquarius (January 20th- February 19th): This week may bring some suppressed emotions up to surface in regards to work. If you have been disappointed by a coworker or even your boss for some time now- it may be time to plan a resolution. Nothing will happen if you do nothing.


Pisces (February 20th- March 20th): Your work and social life are going to be very busy for these next couple weeks. Prepare for that this weekend and catch up on small things such as laundry, banking, and cleaning you have put off. Expect many invites these next couple of weekends, and possibly a raise at work!

Oven Baked Pancakes


Cut into 16 servings

  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoon Canola oil
  • 1-cup skim milk
  • 1-cup seltzer or sparkling water
  • 1 ½ cups whole-wheat pastry flour
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2-tablespoon baking powder
  • 1-tablespoon sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine first 4 ingredients and set aside.  In another bowl combine the remaining ingredients.  Add the liquid mixture to the flour until just mixed.

Line a jelly roll-baking sheet with parchment paper. Pour the pancake batter and spread evenly. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 15 minutes or toothpick comes out dry.

Remove from oven, cool and cut into 16 equal portions.

Each portion is the same as serving from the grains food group.

Idea: Freeze pancakes in a container with wax paper in between. Pancakes can be reheated in microwave, toaster or counter top. This makes a great on the go mini meal -  just add a 6 oz. container of plain yogurt and some fruit, or 8 oz of skim milk
