OSCAR CAINER Your weekly stars.
AQUARIUS (January 21–February 19)
Change doesn’t happen just because it’s the right thing to do. We like to think our choices are determined by the rational study of the merits of a decision. But usually it’s a good story that sways hearts and rallies troops behind a cause. Remember this over the week ahead. Sometimes, belief matters more than vision. To manifest what you need to feel fulfilled, a combination of passion, candour and confidence will make the difference. I need to tell you about the coming eclipse. Call 1900 957 223.
PISCES (Feb 20–Mar 20)
When faced with difficulty, you can either let your confidence crumble or redouble your determination to find a way forward. Try not to be overly sensitive to a cause of worry. Overcome your exasperation at the circumstances that have led to a problem. The coming eclipse will help you see the most positive route you can take to the kind of future you want to enjoy. Find out how the eclipse affects you. Call 1900 957 223.
ARIES (Mar 21–Apr 20)
They say we should strike while the iron’s hot. But this is a blacksmith’s phrase. To update our terminology to cope with modern times, perhaps we should say, “Act while the hashtag is trending.” Whatever the phrasing, the advice remains the same. Something in your world is calling out for change. Don’t let the opportunity to make a difference pass you by. Feel the power of the coming eclipse. Call 1900 957 223.
TAURUS (Apr 21–May 21)
Are you fundamentally a good or bad person? Well, me too. Or at least we like to hope so. But what if we aren’t? Few “bad” people ever think of themselves as bad. Almost all the harmful actions that have ever occurred stem from those who believed that what they were doing was good. You owe it to yourself to ask, “How right is the right thing?” And, “How wrong is the wrong thing?” The coming eclipse is crucial for you. Call 1900 957 223.
GEMINI (May 22–Jun 22)
It’s easy to get caught up with what’s in front of you because, well, it’s right there, waiting for you to deal with it. But life isn’t a screen to be stared at. It’s an Oculus Rift – a virtual reality headset that reveals new dimensions depending on where you point your perspective. This week, if you find that you’re in a less pleasing
situation then, metaphorically, turn your head. There’s more to the game of life than the puzzle you’re stuck on. How will the eclipse affect you? Call 1900 957 223.
CANCER ( Jun 23–Jul 23)
First you snap your shoelace, then you miss the bus. The next thing you know, you’re having a bad day. At every turn, you expect another setback. Yet what makes a good day? Usually it involves a little more than functioning footwear and well-timed transport. As we approach the eclipse, be less sensitive to trivial tribulations and you’ll keep the bigger ones at bay. Harness the power of the eclipse. Call 1900 957 223.
LEO ( Jul 24–Aug 23)
Sometimes we need to take the plunge and take an action that turns a casual relationship into something more substantial. This doesn’t apply only to romantic involvements. Intimate relationships are critical to our wellbeing. Someone in your peripheral vision is worthy of being brought into focus. Their ideas can inspire you. Trust your instincts and listen to their advice. How will the eclipse benefit you? Call 1900 957 223.
VIRGO (Aug 24–Sep 23)
It’s one thing to differ with a companion or to argue with a politician – these things happen. Sooner or later, we all find ourselves passionately upholding a controversial view. Yet what are we to make of someone whose big point of debate isn’t with another individual, but with themselves? You’ve been in a state of almost constant quandary, but this may yet soon resolve. The eclipse has mystic power for you. Call 1900 957 223.
LIBRA (Sep 24–Oct 23)
What’s pushing you out of your comfort zone? Who or what’s upsetting the delicate balance of life’s glorious gumbo? Applying change is like seasoning with chilli. Too little, and it’s bland. Too much, and the whole dish is spoiled. But just the right amount has us returning for second helpings. This week, let someone else add their ingredients. You might like the zest they inject. How will the coming eclipse touch your life? Call 1900 957 223.
SCORPIO (Oct 24–Nov 22)
Harry Potter never decided he wanted to become a wizard. Fate thrust this role on him. Frodo wasn’t hankering for adventure when Gandalf came calling. He was just caught up in something he couldn’t get out of. Just as these literary heroes eventually triumphed, with Mars conjuncting Uranus at the eclipse, you’ll prove worthy of a challenge – even if it wasn’t one you chose. Discover the power of the eclipse. Call 1900 957 223.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23–Dec 21)
We’re told to “Get back on the horse that throws you.” Easy advice when sitting on your high horse, but harder to take when lying in the mud. Of course, we all have the equivalent of psychological steeds to mount. You have the advantage of being the sign of the centaur – your horse can offer you a helping hand to clamber on! This week, don’t let the fear of a fall stop you enjoying the ride. Life’s keen to take you on a journey. The eclipse can change your life. Call 1900 957 223.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22–Jan 20)
How hard is it to see something we don’t want to? Even if we see it, we do our best to forget it: we ignore it, deny it or mistake it for something else. With the coming eclipse, it’s important to remain open-minded. This may involve overcoming a reluctance to accept an unnerving explanation. But don’t let an unappealing impression stop you from realising an opportunity. What does the eclipse means for you? Call 1900 957 223.
