SPY’S Madam Zardoz “11th Superbowl Predictions Win”

crystal-ball

Madam Zardoz does it again.

For 11 straight years, the predictions of Madam Zardoz have been spot on when it comes to her annual Super bowl predictions.

Super Bowl XLIX will go down as an instant classic. The Seattle Seahawks appeared on the cusp of a second-straight title after Jermaine Kearse’s circus catch.

That is, until an interception in the end zone ended the comeback and handed the New England Patriots their fourth Lombardi trophy.

Your final score from University of Phoenix Stadium is New England 28, Seattle 24. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is your MVP. And the team that so many love to hate sits atop the National Football League once again.

The Seahawks’ dynasty will have to wait. Turns out the Patriots weren’t finished with their own yet.

Superbowl2015

The Winner Takes It All

Madam Zardoz’s Annual Prediction of the Superbowl is often a rewarding read if you bet (gamble responsibly) on the cards. It seems more fun when the team is popular, but if the team seems rather deflated the comments towards Madam Zardoz’s predictions can and are on the crisp side. This year, she received many negative comments all directed at her slightly unpopular predictions that New England would take the trophy.

Madam Zardoz’s said, “Some of my favorite comments were “cheaters shouldn’t win” to “Tom Brady is a cry baby”, or “Brady, what a cad leaving his wife while pregnant, he will never get the Superbowl ring since he threw away his own wedding ring. Many had nasty four letter words, some even misspelled. People with narrow minds usually have broad tongues. How amusing.

Now lets talk about Seattle’s mind-boggling decision to throw the ball from the one-yard line will go down in infamy, and forever alter the NFL’s historical perception of both the Seahawks and Patriots: Did Seattle Seahawks forgot who they are. And from that momentary lapse in identity came the worst play-call in Super Bowl history and a defeat that leaves the Seahawks historically irrelevant.

On Saturdays Spy Weekend Edition the expanded Sunday paper the following story was presented.

Madam Zardoz, “Every year about this time I am bombarded by bookies and small time arm chair quarterbacks begging me to read the cards and tell them who is going to win the Superbowl.

Despite the Seattle Seahawks leading the first half of the game, I predict The New England Patriots will walk away with the coveted Super Bowl 49 trophy. My Cards read, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will be crowned MVP due to a “335 yard, 4-touchdown performance.”

It matters not whether you win or lose: what matters is whether I win or lose.

Members of the animal kingdom such as sea turtles, porcupines, donkeys and many others over the years have done a rather bang-up job of picking sports winners so why cant I.

I sometimes go to my own little world, but that’s okay, they know me there. My record over the last 11 years is 10-1, not bad if I do say so myself.

As predicted Seattle Seahawks did in fact lead first half of the game.

New England Patriots did walk away with the coveted Super Bowl 49 trophy

Tom Brady was crowned MVP due to a “328 yard, 4-touchdown performance.

It was in the cards or was it.

Some say the video game Madden also predicted the outcome. It is a crazy world.

 

Now Here Is Your Monthly Survival Guild.

See what the month of February has in store for you.

ariesThis Month’s Horoscope for Aries

A Full Moon in Leo February 3 is just what you need to get you out of whatever slump you’ve fallen into and back on the cosmic horse again, Aries. In your creative zone, the first week of February makes it a great time for you to resurrect something from your past and restart it again. A hobby, a past relationship or side job for example.
Venus in Pisces, your 12th house of past karma and self–renewal through Feb 21, adds to your want and need to clear up issues from the past. Keep in mind that with Mercury the planner out of phase in your 11th house of hopes, wishes and friendship through Feb 11, you could be reworking things out on a friendship level and trying to find balance with a friend – possibly a Leo or Aquarius.

Venus is also the planet of money and possessions. When she arrives in your sign all gussied up and ready for love and adventure she meets up with Mars your ruler and the Moon on the 20th – all in your sign and all looking for things to start up in a big way. Buy a lottery ticket on the 20th. Start something new and exciting. Be open to anything and everyone.

Feb 20 & 21 could bring with it some serious fireworks. Mars in your sign is often out of control as you will feel like the Gladiator or a character in Game of Thrones at times. If you desire something or someone, you will be hell bent on getting them on it. What if they don’t want to be caught or it’s not the right fit for you after all??

Your days to shine: 6, 8, 19 & 26

Your dull days: 1, 5, 21 & 23

Friends: Leo & Aquarius

Frenemies: Cancer & Scorpio

Lust after: Leos

 

taurusThis Month’s Horoscope for Taurus

Until February 20, your ruler Venus will tiptoe through romantic and dreamy Pisces. In Pisces your ruler is exalted – meaning she is the happiest she can possibly be. So despite Mercury being out of phase through Feb 11, you will feel happy, content and if you’re single, you will get many chances to be romanced and do some romancing yourself!
Your ruler Venus, rules both money and love matters and once she enters impetuous Aries on Feb 20, your solar 12th house of secrets, she will inspire you to spend up big! Most likely on things you don’t need and really don’t want but that grab your eye and you’re unable to take your eye away! A gift perhaps for yourself that you feel you’re entitled to? But can you afford it? Make sure you keep all receipts and are able to return the item if you know in your heart when you buy it that you can’t afford it.

And don’t sign anything that’s legally binding or financially binding this month. Or at least hold out until mid–Feb when Mercury has moved direct. In your 10th house of career and ambition, Mercury retrograde is not a good thing! If you don’t think you should send an email – no matter how carefully worded it might be – DON’T send it!

geminiThis Month’s Horoscope for Gemini

You’re irresistible and totally impossible to refuse early in the month, with a Full Moon shining on your 3rd house of communications and conversations, Geminis. And while you’ve always been quite the talker, you’ll be especially charming now and absolutely impossible to say “no” to and mean it. Your mission this month is to use this gift to bring magic into someone’s life. Maybe make someone a promise and keep it – even going overboard with it twins.
If you’re thinking of investing Gemini’s, look to February 8 to get the cosmic ball rolling. Venus the ruler of money matters will activate Pluto in your solar 8th house of joint resources and investments, making this the perfect time to invest and be bold and adventurous with your investment ideas. It’s also a terrific time to get in good with an authority figure or mentor type. There’s absolutely no shame in asking for help or advice about an investment this month – or ever.

A pack of Aries planets will storm the borders of your 11th house of friendship and group affiliations between February 19 and 22, and suddenly your social schedule will be on fire. It might be that a new friend has entered your life and wants to introduce you around to their circle of friends or that you’re looking for some new acquaintances this month. If you put it out into the Universe that this is what you want and need, you will get it twins.

This Month’s Horoscope for Cancer

A New Moon in highly unpredictable and independent Aquarius, February 18, asks that you take a long hard look at how you’ve been dividing domestic expenses Cancerians. If you’re carrying most of the weight, there’s no shame in asking for help, especially from someone who clearly owes it to you. You do a lot for others and sometimes it’s obvious that others aren’t as prepared to help you when you need it. This is your time to work out just how much you will extend yourself in the future if you can’t get the help you need now.
Until February 20, Venus the goddess of love and beauty will be in ultra–sensitive Pisces, a water sign cousin of yours. In your spiritual zone, February is the month when you have more compassion than ever for those near and dear to you, and also those people you might not even know. Now is the perfect time to get involved in a charity or good cause. You have patience and understanding too, so if someone comes to you with a problem (or several problems), you will have no problems fixing them.

Some of you might be tempted to quit your easy yet boring job and strike out on your own. Between February 19 – 22 you will feel the need to be your own boss or work from home or work part time. It’s never a good idea for you to do anything rash. You tend to bring your emotions with you when making big decisions and with Mars the planet of rash moves taking up residence in your career and ambition zone through April 1.

leoThis Month’s Horoscope for Leo

The Full Moon in your sign February 3 urges you to be true to yourself above all else. What’s weighing on your body, mind and soul? What are your truths? If you need to make some physical changes, now is the time to do so. Take a critical and long hard look at yourself and decide what you like and what you don’t like. Then map out a plan that includes ending any and all bad habits and creating a new lifestyle.
For the 2nd month in a row, a New Moon occurs in your opposite sign of Aquarius, your one on one relationship zone. This is going to urge you to make some serious changes, not just within your own personal relationships, but also with regard to the way you present yourself to others when you first meet. They say ’never judge a book by its cover’ but they also say ’first impressions are very important’…so this month, if you feel as if people aren’t understanding you or ’getting you’, tone it down abit and work out how you can reach through and make things click.

Several planets come together in impulsive Aries from February 19 – 22 – one of them being Venus the goddess of love and relationships who is also in charge of money and possessions. In this sign, and in cahoots with passionate Mars the planet that doesn’t take “no” for an answer, you could be heading towards making some purchases that might be fun for a short time until the bills start rolling in. Your days to shine: 4, 7, 19 & 25 Your dull days: 5, 20, 21 & 23 Friends: Sags & Librans Frenemies: Pisces & Taurus Lust after: Aries

virgoThis Month’s Horoscope for Virgo

Up until February 11, Mercury the planet of communication and clear thinking remains out of phase in your 6th house of hard work, health and well–being. You could find that no matter what you do to make things work, lose weight or simply feel better physically and mentally, it doesn’t work. However, as long as you keep trying new things, you will eventually find your niche. The New Moon in Aquarius on Feb 18 is smack bang on target in your 6th house and really forces you to look for new and improved ways to ’work smart, not hard’ and get the benefits out of it without continually getting in your own way.
And with Venus in Pisces your opposite sign and relationship zone through February 21, making new friends and acquaintances is easier than ever. You could meet new people at your gym or while working out and at last you finally have a work out partner! Or at work, someone new in your department is just the breath of fresh air you need and you finally have someone to eat lunch with or hang out with after work. While it might sound a little immature, it’s amazing how having someone ’on your side’ in the workplace is a real boost. A word of caution however – No gossiping!

Avoid shopping between Feb 19 & 22 when a pack of planets in impulsive Aries and your solar 8th house of joint resources will make it all too easy for you to sign up for a payment plan on a large item that you really can’t afford. Try to pay cash or don’t buy it at all. Your days to shine: 2, 7, 24 & 26 Your dull days: 5, 19, 22 & 23 Friends: Capricorns & Scorpios Frenemies: Leos & Sags Lust after: Pisces

libraThis Month’s Horoscope for Libra

February 3 the Full Moon occurs in fiery Leo, your 11th house of hopes, dreams, wishes and friendship. Who is in and who is out for you? Mercury is out of phase in your fun zone through Feb 11, so those friends who are more frenemy than friend are definitely on the ’out list’. You are the sign of relationships and keeping the lifeline flowing between you and others but sometimes Venus, Mars and the emotional Moon invade your solar 7th house of one–to–one relationships this month. They will all come together in Aries, your opposite sign from Feb 19–22 – and these planets are not mucking around! They will absolutely demand that you assert yourself. You’re used to smiling and keeping the peace, but every now and again, even you get to vent and say what’s on your mind! Vent away this month! Aquarians are your best sign to vent to btw – they totally get your need to have your say and to have some space as well. The new Moon Feb 18 in your solar 5th house of playmates and relationships with children plants a seed on a new beginning, urging you to get up close and personal in someone’s life. Enjoy the closeness. It could be that you become much more involved as an Aunt or Uncle or StepMum or StepDad for example. Your days to shine: 3, 11, 19 & 24 Your dull days: 6, 20, 21 & 23 Friends: Sags & Aquarius Frenemies: Cancer & Virgos Lust after: Aquarius

scorpioThis Month’s Horoscope for Scorpio

Now that Saturn has moved on and you are feeling as if the reins are finally being taken off and you are able to push forward with your ideas and dreams, you are probably done with being the honorary authority figure wherever you go. Fortunately, Saturn has moved on, so you’ll finally be able to relax and enjoy yourself (once Mercury the planet of clear thinking and planning moves on Feb 11 of course).
Let’s talk about the pack of red–hot to trot planets in Aries, the planet your co–ruler Mars is in charge of. In your 6th house of hard work and health and well–being the Moon, Mars and Venus join forces February 20/21 – so if you have been thinking about joining a gym or exercise group, this is the time to do so. Things could also get heated at work. Your mission is to sit tight, let things work themselves out, let the chips fall where they may and not do anything crazy or impulsive which you could later regret.

Feb 23 a square between the Sun and Saturn will make you worry about making ends meet. This may seem like a daunting task at first but if you look at your money situation clearly, budget well and move money around on your credit cards, you will definitely work things out and have just enough to sneak over the line. Your days to shine: 7, 18, 25 & 26 Your dull days: 6, 20, 22 & 23 Friends: Pisces & Taurus Frenemies: Gemini & Leo Lust after: Virgos saggitarius

This Month’s Horoscope for Sagittarius

Planetary activity in Aries is just what the cosmic doctor ordered for you this month. Once Mercury moves direct Feb 11, all bets are off! You and Aries are the dare devils and thrill seekers of the zodiac and for those of you looking for fun and adventure, look no further than a Ram.
Mars moves into Aries, your 5th house of romance, self–fulfillment and fun Feb 19 and just a few days later, Venus and the Moon joins Mars in the same part of your chart. This creates the possibility for many things – including passion, lust, love and meeting someone you consider to be a soul mate potential. The thing is you should be careful with your zippy one liners and particular Sag brand of humour. You often say things that you think are harmless but other people take them to heart. There’s one thing to be funny, but another thing to be funny at the expense of someone else.

This Month’s Horoscope for Aquarius

Where the planets are at in February………
Sun in Aquarius through February 19, then moves into Pisces

Full Moon in Leo Feb 3 New Moon in Aquarius Feb 18 Mercury retrograde in Aquarius through Feb 11, then in Aquarius through March 14 Venus in Pisces through February 21 then in Aries from Feb 21 – March 18 Mars in Pisces through Feb 20 then in Aries through April 1 Jupiter retrograde in Leo through mid–April Uranus in Aries Neptune in Pisces Aquarius (January 21 – February 19) By February 20 several planets will have made their way through adrenaline junkie Aries – your 3rd house of busy activities, communication and neighbours. This pack is nothing if not game for just about any adventure, so challenge yourself. Return to school, or sign up with a whole new peer group. Take a chance on something exciting. Wherever Venus goes, money is sure to become important. She’ll spend most of the month in intuitive Pisces and your 2nd house of personal finances, so you’ll be able to smell a fraud a mile away. If your heart is engaged, however, you might want to ignore the warning signs. After February 20, be sure you and you alone are in charge of your hard–earned money. The New Moon will arrive February 18 in your sign, urging you to trash everything that just isn’t working and start over. It might be a friendship, job, or relationship that’s reached its expiration date. No matter what you choose to toss out, rest assured that its absence will make room for more positive experiences. Avoid February 21 when tempers could heat up at the speed of a flash fire. Planets in Aries (Aries being ruled by Mars) the planet of passion means that some of your communications could become haywire.

This Month’s Horoscope for Pisces

February 1st Venus the planet of love in your sign (where she is exalted and the happiest she can possibly be) collides with dreamy Neptune and makes it the stuff that love at first sight is made of. If you feel it, don’t let it slip away. Get that number Pisces. In fact, with Venus in your sign through Feb 21, this is going to be one of the best times of 2015 to meet someone worth meeting.
There will be a whole lot of planets moving through your solar 2nd house of personal finances and money matters this month. And since they’ll all be wearing impulsive Aries, you’ll probably spend a bit more than you’d planned on. Refuse to be an impulse shopper and don’t let anyone talk you into an extended warranty if you know you don’t need it.

Between February 19 & 21, several planets in red–hot Aries will storm the borders of your solar 2nd house of values. Now, those of you who are extremely assertive, you might need to take a stand for what you hold dear, whether it’s a person, an animal, or an ideal. Be prepared for a bit of a battle. The Sun will take off into your sign February 18, Pisces, which means your birthday is fast approaching – always a good time – but also that you’re due to shine in February. The Sun in your sign brings with it a time for you to make plans for the coming year and prepare for your New Moon March 20 – a Total Solar Eclipse. Which also happens to be International Astrology Day.
