If all the world's a stage, then Will Geer's Theatricum Botanicum must be a sliver of utopia. Nestled in the verdant canyons of Topanga, the outdoor theater run by three generations of Will Geer's immediate family members has been offering a respite from the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune for over 40 years. Their annual repertory season includes the fan-favorite "A Midsummer Night's Dream" along with another of Shakespeare's plays and staged classics as well as contemporary plays and experimental work in their 99-seat intimate stage area, all surrounded by trees, gardens and a sense of otherworldliness by its natural environs.

May heading into June will see most signs kicking back or feeling frisky. Last minute travel or invites should be accepted as we break up our routines with more frivolity. Water and Fire could be doused with alone time, while Air and Earth should embrace the company of others. This period can complement those who've been working around the clock with rest and relaxation. For signs who are trying to get their motors running, this would be an excellent oomph to start. View the next few weeks as a time to switch it up, apply what we've learned and make peace.
