Our shrewd star­man Os­car Cainer shines a light on the mys­ter­ies of the cos­mos

NT News - - NEWS - os­car cainer WWW.CAINER.COM

Hi Os­car, Can you ex­plain what the as­tro­log­i­cal houses are for? Yours, Dun­can (Gem­ini) ... Hi Dun­can, As­trol­ogy fo­cuses on the planet (what’s hap­pen­ing), the sign (how it’s hap­pen­ing) and the house (where it oc­curs). The houses are cre­ated by di­vid­ing the sky into twelve sec­tions, de­pend­ing on the po­si­tion of the hori­zon when you were born. If you don’t know the time, it’s more com­pli­cated. I of­ten use “So­lar Houses” which takes the sun sign as House 1. So sun-Gem­i­nis, for ex­am­ple, have Scor­pio as their 6th So­lar House.

ARIES MAR 21–APR 20

Yes­ter­day, Venus (planet of love and money), con­verged with Jupiter (growth and wealth), in the part of the sky as­so­ci­ated with your fi­nan­cial man­age­ment. So we talked about emo­tional in­vest­ments. But, two plus two rarely equals four in as­trol­ogy. It’s never that sim­ple. There’s al­ways room for in­ter­pre­ta­tion. So, I’m in­ter­pret­ing this mo­ment as one where the cos­mos urges you to have faith in some­thing (or some­one) – de­spite their un­known quan­ti­ties. It’s up to you to learn more.

TAURUS APR 21 – MAY 21

Some folk never feel the need to flaunt them­selves at the ex­pense of oth­ers. They’re con­fi­dent in their abil­i­ties, so don’t seek ap­proval. It’s the peo­ple who spend their time pa­tro­n­is­ingly cor­rect­ing us who should arouse our sus­pi­cions. Don’t be too im­pressed, or in­tim­i­dated to­day. Any­one who seeks to build them selves up by putting oth­ers down, isn’t worth los­ing time over. Look out for peo­ple who en­cour­age oth­ers, with­out sac­ri­fic­ing their own sense of self­worth. They can help you to­day. Treat your­self to some valu­able in­sight and price­less in­for­ma­tion. Call 1902 222 500.

GEM­INI MAY 22–JUN 22

A well-honed plan is like a good in­sur­ance pol­icy; it pro­tects you against po­ten­tial risk. It’s al­ways worth hav­ing one of these – af­ter all, there are al­ways un­fore­see­able in­ci­dents wait­ing round the cor­ner. But, when­ever we plan a project, we fo­cus on re­duc­ing the num­ber of things that can go wrong, rather than fac­tor­ing in po­ten­tial strokes of luck. We hope for the best, but plan for the worst. If you start hop­ing, as well as plan­ning to­day, your plans could go awry in a de­light­ful way.

CAN­CER JUN 23–JUL 23

Ac­cord­ing to the Chi­nese sys­tem of Feng Shui, re­ar­rang­ing your home not only makes it feel dif­fer­ent, it fun­da­men­tally re­orders your life. It’s to do with the flow of pos­i­tive and neg­a­tive en­ergy. By plac­ing se­lected ob­jects in cer­tain places, you can ac­cen­tu­ate feel­ings of wealth, love and hap­pi­ness. But, equally, putting the TV in the wrong room, or a sofa at a dis­pleas­ing an­gle can cause un­rest. Just mov­ing a ta­ble might not solve your cur­rent prob­lem. But the so­lu­tion is un­der your nose! Treat your­self to some valu­able in­sight and price­less in­for­ma­tion. Call 1902 222 500.

LEO JUL 24–AUG 23

Ac­cord­ing to the old say­ing, you should never look a gift horse in the mouth. The ap­pro­pri­ate ac­tion would be to thank the horse and al­low it to con­tinue on its way. It would cer­tainly be ter­ri­bly ill-man­nered to take a look in that horse’s mouth, or ques­tion the value of the gift. But sup­pose you want to say thank you, and de­cline the of­fer­ing? Do you need to ac­cept a gift you don’t need? You don’t have to ac­cept what­ever’s be­ing of­fered to you to­day. A “no thank you” will do just fine.

VIRGO AUG 24–SEP 23

Life’s too short to spend time do­ing things we don’t like do­ing. So, why then, are our days filled with do­ing things that we “have” to do? And, by whose judge­ment do we de­fine life’s short­ness? Ac­tu­ally, our time here on Earth is too short to take ad­vice from any­one who’s judg­ing our ac­tions and de­ci­sions. And, too short too, to take any­thing, too earnestly. If you can free your­self from some­one else’s ideas of what you should be do­ing, your time to­day can be well spent. Treat your­self to some valu­able in­sight and price­less in­for­ma­tion. Call 1902 222 500.

LI­BRA SEP 24–OCT 23

It’s easy to turn a small mat­ter into some­thing crit­i­cal. Or triv­i­alise a sit­u­a­tion that de­serves more of our at­ten­tion. What really counts is just do­ing “enough” to make a dif­fer­ence. It in­volves the art of find­ing a bal­ance be­tween do­ing too much and too lit­tle – and find­ing this crit­i­cal point of equi­lib­rium takes prac­tice. The first in­di­ca­tion that you’ve found it is when things start to go well. It may well be that your cur­rent dilemma will take less en­ergy to solve than you think. Go gently to­day.

SCOR­PIO OCT 24–NOV 22

Yes­ter­day, Venus’ kind­ness con­verged with Jupiter’s gen­eros­ity, for the first time in your sign, for 11 years. We call folk with these char­ac­ter­is­tics ”big-hearted”. But, since car­di­ol­o­gists con­sider an en­larged heart to be a wor­ry­ing con­di­tion, does the cos­mic cli­mate rep­re­sent a threat to your psy­cho­log­i­cal health? Will be­ing big-hearted leave you vul­ner­a­ble? With your ruler also linked to Saturn, you’re any­thing but a soft tar­get. No one’s in­vul­ner­a­ble, but you can love with con­fi­dence now. Treat your­self to some valu­able in­sight and price­less in­for­ma­tion. Call 1902 222 500.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS NOV 23–DEC 21

Just be­cause we can’t see the threads that bind us t o the peo­ple we love, we func­tion as if we are all unique. But imag­ine if those threads bound us with com­plete strangers too. Sup­pose noth­ing hap­pens in iso­la­tion, and that ev­ery­thing we do has an ef­fect on the world. Fol­low­ing your ruler’s link to Venus, you can pull on some of the strings with ease to­day. If you just trust in their ex­is­tence, there are fas­ci­nat­ing con­nec­tions just wait­ing to be dis­cov­ered, ex­plored and en­joyed. Want to dis­cover some price­less in­for­ma­tion about this week? Call 1902 222 500.

CAPRI­CORN DEC 22–JAN 20

We’re ad­vised not to worry about what other peo­ple think of us. But it’s easy ad­vice to give when be­ing thought of as “dif­fer­ent” in­volves an el­e­ment of risk. And, in this com­pet­i­tive, fast-paced world that we in­habit, it can be much eas­ier to nav­i­gate a stress-free path with friends by your side, and an abil­ity to gar­ner en­thu­si­asm rather than an­tag­o­nism. If a po­ten­tial prob­lem presents to­day, it would be wiser to re­sist be­ing drawn into the de­bate. Your kind­ness will be the most help­ful at­tribute you can of­fer. Treat your­self to some valu­able in­sight and price­less in­for­ma­tion. Call 1902 222 500.

AQUAR­IUS JAN 21–FEB 19

“Just a spoon­ful of sugar helps the medicine go down” is a line from Mary Pop­pins. It’s an en­dur­ingly catchy lyric – but it holds lit­tle in­tel­lec­tual weight. I doubt many peo­ple have stud­ied the words and ag­o­nised over their mean­ing. I even thought twice about us­ing them in your fore­cast – in case you thought I might be in­sult­ing your in­tel­li­gence! Yet, they un­der­line the point that needs to be ex­pressed. To­day, some­thing sweet can over­rule your crit­i­cal fac­ul­ties, in a most de­light­ful way. Want to dis­cover some price­less in­for­ma­tion about this week? Call 1902 222 500.

PISCES FEB 20–MAR 20

You’re known for your sen­si­tiv­ity. What other peo­ple shrug off, you take to heart, and worry over. You have a keen sense of how oth­ers feel about you, and want their judge­ment to be fair. Some­times, the best way to pro­tect your­self from com­ments is to hide away. But this is not an op­tion to­day. You need to hear what some­one’s think­ing, and you need to re­spond. The cos­mos is pro­vid­ing you with sup­port. And the re­spect and un­der­stand­ing you’ll gain make the risk worth tak­ing. Treat your­self to some valu­able in­sight and price­less in­for­ma­tion. Call 1902 222 500.
