Peo­ple use the ex­pres­sion “liv­ing the dream”. But if any­one is liv­ing my dream, they’d be try­ing to ex­plain to their old his­tory teacher why they’ve turned up at school wear­ing noth­ing much, and cov­ered in baked beans. As the Fin­ger of Fate points to the Sun, we’ll start to see cre­ative ways to man­i­fest am­bi­tious goals. Most of us have a fan­tas­ti­cal imag­i­nary world in which we live our ideal lives. Over the com­ing days at least some of these fan­tasies can en­ter the world of re­al­ity. Dream big to­day.

ARIES MAR 21–APR 20

It’s right and proper to con­sider your friends as as­sets. They are (or should be) peo­ple who you’re proud to have in your life. Gen­er­ally, since they are loyal folk, you don’t mind shar­ing them; in fact their value in­creases as they in­ter­act with your other as­sets. Who would want to keep their “special peo­ple” sep­a­rate from one an­other? Yet, one of the key re­la­tion­ships in your world has be­come over-com­pli­cated. When the cos­mic Fin­ger of Fate brings you an op­por­tu­nity to sim­plify it, ev­ery­one will ben­e­fit. The Fin­ger of Fate can trans­form your world. Call 1300 017 319

TAU­RUS APR 21 – MAY 21

What is it about cer­tain flavours that puts you off them? What makes you turn your nose up, and push your plate away? Once we’ve con­cluded that we don’t get on with some­thing, wild horses can’t change our minds. Well… it takes some­thing world al­ter­ing in or­der to con­vince us to drop long-held con­vic­tions. If some­one’s heart is set against some­thing, try not to re­spond with frus­tra­tion to­day. Com­pas­sion and em­pa­thy will be far more fruit­ful tools. And you have these qual­i­ties in abun­dance. The Fin­ger of Fate brings transforma­tion. Call 1300 017 319

GEMINI MAY 22–JUN 22

There’s no doubt that the truth can some­times be painful… but so can a trip to the den­tist. And there are some things that just have to be done – they do us good, even though they’re not par­tic­u­larly en­joy­able. Of course, we need to watch out for a sense of masochism; it can be easy to slip into a way of be­ing in which we sub­ject our­selves to all sorts of un­pleas­ant things be­cause we think they might “do us good”. You’re fac­ing some­thing that needs to be faced. It will do you no harm. The Fin­ger of Fate brings pow­er­ful pos­i­tive change. Call 1300 017 319

CANCER JUN 23–JUL 23

When the per­fect answer’s right in front of some­one, what would pos­sess them to turn it down? Well, per­haps it’s not quite per­fect. Or it comes at too high a price…or maybe too much would be lost in a com­pro­mise. Or, for the time be­ing at least, it suits them bet­ter to leave things as they are. Sta­sis is not al­ways a bad thing. Though a sit­u­a­tion might not be mov­ing as quickly as you’d like, it’s not go­ing wrong. Take to­day as an op­por­tu­nity to re­group and re­gather your pre­cious en­ergy. Let the Fin­ger of Fate guide you to your dream fu­ture. Call 1300 017 319

LEO JUL 24–AUG 23

The lyrics to an old song spring to mind: “If you want the things you love, you must have show­ers”. Sung by some of the great­est singers; from Bil­lie Hol­i­day to Frank Si­na­tra, their per­for­mances have gone down in his­tory be­cause they put their heart and soul into ex­press­ing the sen­ti­ments of the song. To­day, as the Fin­ger of Fate fo­cuses on your ruler, the Sun, it’s worth putting your heart and soul into a project you care about. You won’t be­lieve what you could achieve. How will the Fin­ger of Fate trans­form your life?

VIRGO AUG 24–SEP 23

It’s a sen­si­ble idea to pe­ri­od­i­cally make sure that your fire alarms are work­ing. But sup­pose you de­cide to change the bat­ter­ies at the ex­act mo­ment that a tea towel catches fire out of your sight? Might it be bet­ter to wait; to know that you’re cov­ered for to­day, but that you might not be cov­ered to­mor­row? It’s not easy know­ing when to take that kind of risk. As you weigh up a com­pa­ra­ble set of cir­cum­stances, know that there’s no right answer. Lis­ten to your in­tu­ition, and go with that. Let the power of the Fin­ger of Fate in­spire you. Call 1300 017 319

LIBRA SEP 24–OCT 23

Our prob­lems pro­vide us with a sense of pur­pose. When we’ve got some­thing chal­leng­ing to deal with, we have to fo­cus our minds and di­rect our en­ergy to­wards re­solv­ing it. As long as we feel rel­a­tively con­fi­dent in our abil­ity to rise to the chal­lenge, we en­joy work­ing our way through dif­fi­cul­ties. When some­one tells us that we’re no longer needed, we might even feel a de­gree of dis­ap­point­ment. The Fin­ger of Fate in­di­cates you’re en­ti­tled to feel free from an obli­ga­tion. En­joy the change. The Fin­ger of Fate can trans­form your world. Call 1300 017 319

SCORPIO OCT 24–NOV 22

For ev­ery un­de­ni­able truth there’s some­one who be­lieves the com­plete op­po­site. For ev­ery ar­gu­ment there’s a counter-ar­gu­ment. Al­though “ab­so­lutes” pro­vide us with re­as­sur­ing bound­aries, they’re also sources of mis­un­der­stand­ing and dis­agree­ment. Don’t for­get the power of the words, “I don’t know” to­day. Not only is there no shame in say­ing them, the courage and wis­dom you show will open doors of en­light­en­ment. Be­ing hon­est about your knowl­edge will ex­pand your hori­zons. The Fin­ger of Fate brings transforma­tion. Call 1300 017 319

SAGITTARIU­S NOV 23–DEC 21

Peo­ple say “there’s no such thing as bad weather’… it’s just that we some­times choose to wear the wrong clothes for the cli­mate we find our­selves deal­ing with. Yes, there’s an el­e­ment of truth to this state­ment, yet it’s rare that we con­sciously de­cide to clothe our­selves in un­suit­able gear. We usu­ally lis­ten to the fore­casts and dress ap­pro­pri­ately. As your as­tro­log­i­cal fore­caster to­day, my ad­vice is to dig out your coat of per­se­ver­ance. You’ll be able to make much head­way if you do. The Fin­ger of Fate brings pow­er­ful pos­i­tive change. Call 1300 017 319

CAPRICORN DEC 22–JAN 20

Which rules can af­ford to bend a lit­tle be­fore they break? Where might you be able to cut a lit­tle cor­ner, to­day? I’m not sug­gest­ing you do any­thing too rad­i­cal – I’m aware that I’m talk­ing to a strait-laced Capricorn. Or, at least, to a Capricorn who likes to project that im­age. Yet, at this point in your life, your sense of re­spon­si­bil­ity is so well recog­nised and ap­pre­ci­ated that no one’s pay­ing any at­ten­tion to your ac­tions them­selves. Don’t push the boat out too far... but a lit­tle won’t do any harm. Let the Fin­ger of Fate guide you to your dream fu­ture. Call 1300 017 319

AQUARIUS JAN 21–FEB 19

It’s hard to ar­gue with a sat­nav. Once it knows where you’re headed, it works out what it thinks is the best route. Then, un­less you’re ruth­less about not fol­low­ing its ad­vice, the me­chan­i­cal voice is so in­sis­tent that we end up do­ing what it tells us to do. At this rate it won’t be long be­fore we’re just serv­ing the com­mands of in­tel­li­gent ro­bots. Is that re­ally true? It would be easy to dis­miss ad­vice you’re be­ing of­fered to­day. But if you fol­low it, it will take you to ex­actly where you need to be. How will the Fin­ger of Fate trans­form your life? Call 1300 017 319
