TAU­RUS (April 21–May 21)

When I was a child, my mum read me a book called Av­o­cado Baby. I loved the story. It was about a tod­dler who gets so strong from eat­ing av­o­ca­dos that he’s able to fight off bur­glars. But I still hated av­o­ca­dos. Now, as an adult, I love them. Our tastes change as we age. And there are things that we may still think we dis­like purely be­cause we haven’t tried them in a while. This week, give some­thing on of­fer a sec­ond chance. Anx­ious? Call to hear your un­miss­able in-depth fore­cast: 1900 957 223.

GEMINI (May 22–Jun 22)

Back when the Tower of Pisa didn’t have such a pro­nounced tilt, Galileo used to drop things from the top to see how long it took them to fall. As your ruler leaves its shadow, and a New Moon ar­rives in your sign, you fear that life is now ask­ing you to let go of some­thing big. Ac­tu­ally, this will prove no harder than it is to let go of some­thing small. In­sights are avail­able to you this week. Find out more. Call 1900 957 223.

CANCER ( Jun 23–Jul 23)

We all have peo­ple who tug on our heart­strings. And some of them do more than just tug. Yet there’s a big dif­fer­ence be­tween be­ing needed and feel­ing used. Where in your life is some­one tak­ing you for granted? Don’t they re­alise that by try­ing to con­trol you, they risk los­ing your loy­alty? This week, it’s time to ex­er­cise your power. If you need some in­spi­ra­tion, this is your week. Call 1900 957 223.

LEO ( Jul 24–Aug 23)

You’ve made brave choices lately. And, with the com­ing New Moon, you will be making more. To an ex­tent, you’ve been led to these de­ci­sions by cir­cum­stance. But you could have chick­ened out or slipped into an eas­ier role. Or ac­cepted a com­pro­mise that might have left you very com­pro­mised in­deed. In­stead, you’ve done what you felt was right. It will yet prove right. There are in­sights in store for you. Call 1900 957 223.

VIRGO (Aug 24–Sep 23)

Life wants to teach you some­thing. Some­times, when you’re crit­i­cal, you can cre­ate the wrong im­pres­sion. And some­times, when we truly want the best for some­one, we end up hurt­ing them when all we wanted was to help. It’s im­por­tant to en­sure your mo­tives are un­der­stood now. Don’t ob­fus­cate the

depth of your feel­ings. Your kind­ness will al­low you to wield in­flu­ence del­i­cately. This week can bring the suc­cess you de­serve. Call 1900 957 223.

LIBRA (Sep 24–Oct 23)

We hang on to things we ought to let go; we let go of things we ought to keep. The “let­ting go” bit isn’t such a prob­lem. It’s the “hang­ing on” bit we must be wary of – es­pe­cially cling­ing too tightly to anger, sus­pi­cion or dis­ap­point­ment. As Venus links to Pluto, don’t ask whether some­one de­serves to be for­given. Ask whether you de­serve the pain of keep­ing a bad feel­ing alive. There is ex­cite­ment in the stars for you this week. Call 1900 957 223.

SCORPIO (Oct 24–Nov 22)

Car­rots and sticks: the means by which we gov­ern unruly beasts. A com­bi­na­tion of both of­ten works best. Yet it’s worth re­mem­ber­ing that peo­ple aren’t beasts of bur­den, and that to get the best from them we need to be in­vested in com­mon goals. This week, look for an emo­tional con­nec­tion and you’ll get ev­ery­one pulling to­gether in the right di­rec­tion. Un­cer­tain? Call to hear your un­miss­able in-depth fore­cast: 1900 957 223.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23–Dec 21)

When you feel at your best, who are you? And what about when you are at your worst, who are you then? You’re still the same per­son. Do you some­how de­serve to be loved and ap­pre­ci­ated more when you’re in one state than when you’re in another? The New Moon can help peo­ple see the very best in you. Help that to hap­pen by think­ing the very best of your­self. Call if you are look­ing to make some pos­i­tive changes: 1900 957 223.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22–Jan 20)

Rose-tinted glasses can be dan­ger­ous. Why? Be­cause red is of­ten as­so­ci­ated with dan­ger and when our vi­sion is fil­tered through a pink­ish hue, red be­comes more dif­fi­cult to pick out. It’s pos­si­ble that some­thing from the past is so dis­tract­ing that you’re not see­ing right in front of you. No need to fear, as this week brings a great op­por­tu­nity to re­gain con­trol. Just look through a clear lens. There are rev­e­la­tions and in­sights in store for you. Call 1900 957 223.

AQUARIUS ( Jan 21–Feb 19)

Where pre­cisely is this fa­mous “box” we are all sup­posed to think out­side of? Busi­ness gu­rus love find­ing com­pli­cated phrases to de­scribe some­thing simple. But, in essence, they are right. We need to be more cre­ative and al­low our­selves to en­vis­age a bet­ter, brighter fu­ture. The New Moon can help you to start tak­ing the kind of ac­tion that’s most likely to bring this about. In­sights are avail­able to you this week. Call 1900 957 223.

PISCES (Feb 20–Mar 20)

Mark Twain once said, “His­tory doesn’t re­peat it­self, but it of­ten rhymes.” This week, while there’s plenty of “new” about, a part of you feels as if it recog­nises what you’re en­coun­ter­ing. Don’t worry, I’m not con­demn­ing you to re­peat old mis­takes. You’re start­ing along a path be­cause you know how to tra­verse it. What seems un­fath­omable will prove to be re­as­sur­ingly fa­mil­iar. You can work magic in your world this week. Find out how. Call 1900 957 223.

ARIES (Mar 21–Apr 20)

It’s not un­com­mon to see peo­ple in Ja­pan wear­ing med­i­cal masks. It may ap­pear as though they’re ner­vous about breath­ing in germs, but it’s very likely they’ve picked up a virus and are keen not to pass it on to oth­ers. As Venus in your sign links with Pluto this week, you may want to be care­ful that a gen­er­ous ges­ture isn’t mis­in­ter­preted as self­ish­ness. In­sights are avail­able to you this week. Call 1900 957 223.

1. Ven­ti­late. When you tell oth­ers what you’re go­ing through, you let in light.

2. See set­backs as “dis­as­ter­tu­ni­ties”. Look for ways to trade out, and move on.

3. Choose peo­ple who make you laugh. When I met my hus­band, for the first time in my life I heard my own laugh.
