Find your sign, engage your mind. For 1/4/21 and for amusement…seriously.
Aquarius – Don’t just practice singing into the mic under the lights, make sure you prepare for all the trials and crazy details involved with touring in a van with the faint smell of vomit and fast food. Get yourself together because you’ll need all your emotions in line so that you don’t find yourself screaming at the top of your lungs to a bandmate, rather than at the stadium crowd. If you stay the course and stay out of trouble, you will achieve that Rolling Stone interview.
Pisces – Today is not the day to argue with the tour manager or haggle over prices. Just focus on songwriting or practicing.
Aries – You’ve been putting together your dream album or a big project. Not to let the cat out of the bag, but it’s even better than you think it is. Just make sure to dot your i’s and cross your t’s and check all the dBs. At the same time, don’t worry about small things.
Taurus – You’re feeling about as down as it gets, but don’t don Goth clothes and despair in earnest. Just do something for you: engage in colors, good food, and sensory experiences and you’ll be glowing in no time. Don’t vent to others, just take this one on yourself.
Gemini – It seems like a really big deal right now that the bassist changed the note in the bridge from B to Bb minor but it really isn’t. It still sounds fine. Stop all the nitpicking with the sidemen and just be your glorious self. Don’t argue, it could lead to people storming off the bandstand.
Cancer – Just because you didn’t make an audition recently or someone didn’t take your incredible idea seriously, don’t fret my pet. There could be some bigger reason for this, like a new offer than you couldn’t have taken had this recent one come through. Keep trucking.
Leo – It’s time to clean up your practice space, violin case, car, folder of songs that is bursting like an exploding box of kleenex, whatever—just straighten it out. You’ll be glad. Whatever your goal is, get down to it and do not pass go.
Virgo – Everyone is looking at you when the show doesn’t work. Somehow you forgot to advance the details of the gig and everyone went to wrong addresses. You accidentally hired three drummers. You forgot the 9V battery. But I digress. If the world is coming down on you, keep your chin up. You DID make sure the venue had food for the band.
Libra – You’re feeling held back when your ultimate vision of being airlifted to your gig at the Superbowl halftime show and arriving in a giant glowing bubble shooting fireworks is getting stomped down by the Universe. However, take a good listen. The gods just want you to keep at least one foot on the ground, maybe two. Take this a step at a time. You will get there.
Scorpio – Yes you forgot to add the cymbal crash at the end of the show and the conductor looked at you and your eyes got as big as timpani. But don’t worry. Shows come and go. You’ll get ’em next time, and you’ll have the mallet for the giant bass drum. Take heed that you’ll get another go at this. Practice some paradiddles.
Saggittarius – Listen to a song that pulls on your heart strings. Look at all your projects objectively. You may feel that time is limited, but there’s plenty of measures left.
Capricorn – If you feel like running to the record store with wings and buying every obscure vinyl on the recent obsession of your choice, or driving two hours to practice in a giant cement warehouse for the acoustics, just hold on. Your energy will be better spent on hearth and home. Look inside and work on the musical concepts that need to be nurtured. You’ve got a lot of great energy today– use it wisely my friend.
