Have you heard of paint by numbers? Like, who hasn’t, right? When you were little you probably painted many a masterpiece with all the 5 colors that came with that masterpiece. Regardless of whether you recreated a classic Van Gogh or just painted a barn with a really great selection of livestock – you are an ARTIST! In a similar way, we are going to take your astrological sign and show you what’s best to do in Barrie based on your horoscope. We are creating the box for you to work within…..let’s get started!
I SAW THE SIGNS
Aries: Speak up! Why are you keeping your thoughts to yourself?
Sometimes we learn by watching others do what we can’t. (Watching your parent drive, downhill skiing.) Most probably you watched others do those things before you ever gave it a go. So maybe this is something that would interest you. Author Waubgeshig Rice is going to be at Barrie Public Library on Sept 28th. He’s going to read from his new novel, Moon of the Crusted Snow. Go have a listen and maybe it will help you find your inner voice.
Taurus: A celebration is in order! You will receive the news you have been waiting for!
Gemini: Today is your superhero day! Tap into your compassion and stand up in defense of opinions you don’t agree with.
Cancer: You need a plan. It would be beneficial for you to away from copycats. It’s time to take an entire week to yourself and just do things that make YOU happy.
Arrggghhh. Copycats. You know exactly who we are talking about. Oh we know, we know that it’s the sincerest form of flattery but STOP already, right? Here’s what we’ve done – we’ve made a plan of great fun stuff to do next week. Check it OUT and see what happens when you discover new sides of yourself that you didn’t know existed.
AND IT OPENED MY EYES
Leo: If you have a flexible schedule right now, it’s time to put together some goals for the coming weeks.
We are going to suggest a Netflix show that might actually work really well with you. Sometimes its not always about what you can go outside and do, but what you can accomplish on the inside. Watch “Tidying up with Marie Kondo”. No, really. Even if the only take away is how to properly fold tshirts in a drawer, you’ll thank us.
Virgo: You are not alone. It would do you a world of good to remind yourself how lucky you are to know the people you know.
A relaxing, carefree night out with friends is what is in order. The Common Good Café and Social House has some great Friday evening entertainment that would be the perfect backdrop for sharing in the love and familiarity of good friends. Not too long ago, Barrie Uncovered did a spotlight on the Common Good’s Head Chef – KEVIN. Give it a read and impress your friends with how much you know!
Libra: This is the beginning of a new phase for you. Look out for new, surprising possibilities.
Oh we can sum this one up well. The Rocky Horror Picture Show! Go do something completely different and surprise yourself! Dress up, dance and sing along with a crowd at the screening of Rocky Horror Picture show. Happening October 31,st – get your tickets!
Virgo: Today is your superhero day! Tap into your compassion and stand up in defense of opinions you don’t agree with.
Who is more opinionated than comedians, right? Why not go have some laughs and heck, if you don’t agree with a comedian, why not check out an amateur night and take the stage yourself? Fionn MacCool’s has Jamieson Donnel this Sunday.
Scorpio: Do not focus on what may be a stagnant social life – focus on close friends and family. Let them know that you really care.
Spend that extra time with family and friends and perhaps have an in-depth conversation about Barrie living and Barrie Life. We’ve already got your talking points ready for you. Take a read HERE.
YEP, I SAW THE SIGNS
Sagittarius: It’s time you let your creativity ROAR! Your mind has been wandering lately and you need to find something to focus on.
Yeah, are you feeling that same vibe? Here’s the plan – go to Creative Café and do something different. They’ve got pottery, painting, glass art…..they’ve got it all. Time moves quickly when you are focused, so schedule yourself at least 2 hours. No appointments necessary, just walk in. If pottery and art aren’t what you are thinking, check out these alternatives HERE.
Capricorn: You have got to keep your hands to yourself today. Don’t ask for help, and don’t ask others to share resources. Work on good fences and boundaries today.
Here’s something that you may have not tried before – Meditation. Check out the Jampa Ling Kadampa Centre on Dunlop. Meditating is a great way to keep your hands to yourself!
Aquarius: You were made to stand out today, so stop trying to fit in. Go your own way and don’t look back!
Here’s an idea. A night out to yourself to have fun, let go and laugh until you bust. Check out this event happening at Ferndale Banquet Hall. Dress up, stand out and have FUN! Check out this link to get tickets to see Greg Morton from America’s Got Talent.
Pisces: Stay busy trying to make your environment better. Clean and Organize! Try to get things done before the late afternoon when your energy level drops.
Once you’ve gotten those things done, check out what’s going on in Barrie this weekend HERE. You’ll have lots to choose from and with the added stress of chores all done, you will have the BEST time!
Chika Boom Pow! (that’s our new catch phrase!)
There you have it, yet ANOTHER astrological Tour of Barrie specially designed for YOU! Have fun and we’ll see you soon!
