Your weekly stars.
GEMINI (May 22–June 22)
My uncle Jonathan told a story about a friend who hated washing dishes. One day, he noticed her sink wasn’t overflowing as usual. He asked, “Did you get help?” She said, “No – I did it! I realised I loathed dirty dishes more than I disliked cleaning them.” With your ruler opposite Saturn, a similar approach can be applied to a problem you now face. Ask yourself which is the lesser of two evils. You might enjoy what comes out in the wash. Let the light and power of the Solstice inspire you. Call 1900 957 223.
CANCER ( Jun 23–Jul 23)
A few weeks ago, you were twiddling your thumbs. Now, with Mars in your sign, you can use them to grip tightly to the handlebar of life’s motorcycle, and break records for speed and efficiency as you get things done. You have a lot on your plate, but you can absorb and digest every last bit of it – as long as you take one step at a time. The Solstice can transform your world. Make the most of its energy. Call 1900 957 223.
LEO ( Jul 24–Aug 23)
Where’s the sentry guarding the door that you can never hope to pass through? Are you sure it’s even locked? If it is, what’s that key-shaped object on the floor? As Mercury combines with your ruler, you are now being helped to see new possibilities. They represent real chances, as long as you’re willing to take them. But stop doubting yourself. The Solstice brings powerful, positive change. For great news, call 1900 957 223.
VIRGO (Aug 24–Sep 23)
What pleases Pat may anger Alex. What makes Jo jolly may sadden Sam. It’s hard when we try to balance conflicting needs and preferences. You may be tired by your efforts to pursue peace and harmony. You deserve to be applauded for even trying to, yet you just incur criticism. Don’t give up. Someone is about to become a lot more reasonable. Capture the energy of the Solstice. Call your in-depth forecast: 1900 957 223.
LIBRA (Sep 24–Oct 23)
Nobody can do the impossible. But what about the almost impossible? Well, those things aren’t actually impossible. They may be tricky and take effort, but how do you know until you try? Don’t risk it all on a crazy scheme – and if you think it poses danger, keep well away from it. But, if the risk is small and the
reward is big, with Venus encouraged by dreamy Neptune, at least give it a shot. The power of the Solstice can be harnessed right now. Call 1900 957 223.
SCORPIO (Oct 24–Nov 22)
There are times we should give thanks for our problems. We should look at the trouble they’ve led us into, what we’ve done to get out of that trouble, and see we might never have wound up being so smart if we hadn’t at first been so dumb. Forget why a situation came about and whether it has been bad or good. This week brings the chance to see what it has to offer you. How will the Solstice transform your life? Call 1900 957 223.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23–Dec 21)
Few people deliberately spread lies; the majority of us have integrity. But we also have a strong sense of faith. When we believe something to be true, we want others to believe it as we think they will benefit from knowing what we know. Are you giving someone else’s enthusiastic assumption too much credence? You can now get to the root of the matter. Let the light and power of the Solstice inspire you. Call 1900 957 223.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22–Jan 20)
If there’s something you can’t have, maybe you don’t need it. The Solstice makes a strong suggestion you’re being well taken care of by a kindly cosmos. Not only are the planets well disposed towards you, but people are also inspired to lend a hand. Don’t underestimate your ability now to charm the birds from the trees, or find the perfect solution to a daunting difficulty. The Solstice can transform your world. Call 1900 957 223.
AQUARIUS ( Jan 21–Feb 19)
No matter how sharp our minds, they trail behind our gut reactions like tortoises following hares. And because they go so much more slowly, they have more time to mull things over. You can get into a long discussion now about the relative merits of a suggestion or idea. But passionate Mars suggests that if you really want to make progress now, don’t ignore how you feel. The Solstice brings powerful positive change to your life. For great news, call 1900 957 223.
PISCES (Feb 20–Mar 20)
This isn’t a perfect world, and it might never be, but it’s not such a bad place. And our experience of it varies according to our mood. I’m not saying, “Imagine everything is fine and it will be.” That’s a justification for living in ignorance, which rarely turns out blissful. But you really should look more favourably on something you’ve felt inclined to resent. Capture the energy of the Solstice. Call your in-depth forecast: 1900 957 223.
ARIES (Mar 21–Apr 20)
When comedy writers look for an easy gag, they get a character to say, “You won’t find me doing this ever again.” Then, in the next scene, they break their vow. So much for self-control or luck! It’s funny when we see this happening to others, less amusing when it happens to us. But, if you find yourself back where you said you’d never go again, it may be something to smile about, rather than cry over. The power of the Solstice can be harnessed right now. Call 1900 957 223.
TAURUS (Apr 21–May 21)
Even if we buy the best burglar alarm in the world, we can still have a problem. As with physical protection, so too with our emotional defence mechanisms. The more we try to protect ourselves, the more we can find ourselves becoming vulnerable. A good way to guard against unwelcome intrusion is to maintain a high level of openness. Try being trusting this week. How will the Solstice transform your life? Call 1900 957 223.
