Your weekly stars.
PISCES (Feb 20–Mar 20)
If you let someone see how vulnerable you are, will this be perceived as weakness or strength? The answer depends on how much you reveal. Sensitivity is most attractive when shown in the briefest of glimpses. We don’t like to see someone falling to pieces, but it’s intriguing to discover that behind an air of strength lies a softness. Strong people aren’t afraid to open up. They know their strength runs deep. Find security in your sensitivity. Your light-shedding four-minute forecast is ready. Call 1900 957 223.
ARIES (Mar 21–Apr 20)
If you’ve been feeling less enthusiastic about life recently, that’s understandable. You’ve had a lot on your mind. And, with your ruler having just vacated your sign, it’s only natural that the spring in your step might have lost a little of its bounce. But here comes the equinox. It will put the “boing” back in your pogo stick and allow you to clear any obstacles with ease. Your hope-giving four-minute forecast is ready. Call 1900 957 223.
TAURUS (Apr 21–May 21)
You weren’t placed on this earth to suffer. Nobody said when you were born: “This person will never enjoy success, unless they put their nose to the grindstone and wear their fingers to the bone.” You are entitled to happiness. Your ruler Venus may be retrograde, but whatever seems hard now, you’ll find a way to make easier. It just requires more imagination. Your heart-warming four-minute forecast is ready. Call 1900 957 223.
GEMINI (May 22–Jun 22)
Whoever espoused the notion of “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” didn’t have sadomasochistic friends. Actually, it comes from Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount. So if I value my wellbeing, I ought to be careful what I say! And so should you this week. Some dramatic revelations are likely to occur, so surround yourself with people who love you. Your worry-quashing fourminute forecast is ready. Call 1900 957 223.
CANCER ( Jun 23–Jul 23)
My uncle Jonathan and I once discussed why the olive branch became a symbol of peace. Olives have a challenging taste, he mused. Even when salted and pickled, you either love them or hate them. I suggested that perhaps we hope peace, like the olive, can be easily preserved. Peace can seem hard to attain and even
trickier to sustain. But, as Mercury and the Sun move towards conjunctions with Venus, it’s a good place to start. Your fourminute forecast is ready. Call 1900 957 223.
LEO ( Jul 24–Aug 23)
They’re flamboyant and, at times, ridiculous, but I love the band Queen. When they come on the radio, their music is instantly recognisable and utterly memorable. So are you. And, like Queen, you have a tendency to be a little OTT at times. But you’re gifted, creative and exciting, too. The equinox brings the chance to turn the volume up. Just do it in an appropriate manner. Your fourminute forecast is ready. Call 1900 957 223.
VIRGO (Aug 24–Sep 23)
What use is a map to a traveller who doesn’t have a clear destination? Well, at least it shows them their options. It may help them to formulate a plan of some kind. As your ruler conjuncts retrograde Venus, you may be questioning your sense of direction. Yet the information you need to make a clear, wise decision is closer than you think. It’s the equinox! Your heart-warming four-minute forecast is ready. Call 1900 957 223.
LIBRA (Sep 24–Oct 23)
“I just can’t get you outta my head; Boy, your lovin’ is all I think about,” sang Kylie. There are times, especially during intense relationships, when such focus can border on obsession. What, or who, is occupying your thoughts to an almost unhealthy degree? Here comes the chance to move on, shift focus and break free. Once your eyes have adjusted, you’ll see wonderful sights waiting to be explored. Your fourminute forecast is ready. Call 1900 957 223.
SCORPIO (Oct 24–Nov 22)
“Ever since I was a young boy, I’ve played the silver ball,” sang The Who. Yet my own son will probably only ever know a computer-simulated pinball. He’s unlikely to experience the pleasure of nudging a machine so that it responds to his movements. You may think you face a situation that can just as easily go well or badly, but, since the result depends on your focus, you have the skills to hit a high score. Your light-shedding fourminute forecast is ready. Call 1900 957 223.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23–Dec 21)
My cat’s latest craze is to jump in the bath. Not a full bath, but leaping into an empty tub and just scrabbling around. There are some animal behaviours that we find difficult to anthropomorphise. Some of your ideas are hard for others to appreciate; your ways of thinking are so different they fail to translate. If you want to start a revolution, first find a common cause. Your four-minute forecast is ready. Call 1900 957 223.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22–Jan 20)
Astrologers watch a lot of sunsets and sunrises. It often seems like a great dimmer switch is being gently applied to the sky. Much the same can be said about the light of hope in the human heart. We rarely switch from negative to positive in an instant. As Mercury extends its influence, you may wish to hurry the transformation that Pluto can lead you through. Don’t worry, it will happen. Your heart-warming fourminute forecast is ready. Call 1900 957 223.
AQUARIUS ( Jan 21–Feb 19)
Helen of Troy is described as “the face that launched a thousand ships” because she was supposedly so beautiful that, rather than accept he’d lost her, her husband King Menelaus led his fleet on a 10-year quest to get her back. It’s not your face, but your words and ideas that can set events in motion on what feels like a similar scale. The time is coming to make your voice heard. Your worry-quashing forecast is ready. Call 1900 957 223.
