Your weekly stars.

CAN­CER (June 23–July 23)

Mars leaves your sign this week with a bang. And just as the Sun joins it in Leo next week­end, the New Moon is close enough to be con­sid­ered con­junct to the fiery planet. You may be tired of the emo­tional ex­tremes you’re ex­pe­ri­enc­ing, but soon the Cos­mos will let you take your foot off the ac­cel­er­a­tor and en­joy the scenery. It just needs one more burst of en­ergy. Then you can start your next, less chal­leng­ing jour­ney. For your lat­est in­spir­ing guide to the week ahead, call 1900 957 223.

LEO ( Jul 24–Aug 23)

When I was a kid, Jim Car­rey’s The Mask was my favourite film. It was about an an­cient mask which gave su­per­pow­ers. At the film’s cli­max, the hero de­fused an ex­plo­sive sit­u­a­tion by swal­low­ing a bomb and declar­ing, “That’s a spicy meat­ball!” A sit­u­a­tion is about to get hot­ter. It’ll take strength to swal­low your pride. But you don’t need a mask to be a hero. The sky is pos­i­tively charged with as­tro­log­i­cal prom­ise. Call 1900 957 223.

VIRGO (Aug 24–Sep 23)

Of­ten, when you’ve al­most reached your goal, it can be tempt­ing to slow down. But while it’s im­por­tant to en­joy the jour­ney, com­pla­cency is never help­ful. “Al­most” isn’t good enough – es­pe­cially when you have the tools you need to achieve what you want. Don’t panic if you feel like ev­ery­thing you’ve worked for seems to be slip­ping away. You’re about to be re­as­sured. If you need some in­spi­ra­tion, this is your week. Call 1900 957 223.

LIBRA (Sep 24–Oct 23)

We’re taught as chil­dren to dis­tin­guish be­tween things: blue, not red; good, not bad. But as adults, this leads us to make com­par­isons: am I more or less suc­cess­ful than that per­son? Hap­pier? Sad­der? It be­comes an un­healthy way of think­ing. If you can free your­self from re­stric­tive com­par­isons this week, you will be sur­prised at what you dis­cover. The plan­ets say that won­der­ful changes are pos­si­ble. Call 1900 957 223.

SCORPIO (Oct 24–Nov 22)

It’s tempt­ing to race through life with a check­list. Un­less we’ve achieved that, seen this and beaten some­one else to that, are we even liv­ing? But in the scrab­ble to be the most suc­cess­ful, the pur­pose of life slips away. Life is not a com­pe­ti­tion. The only win­ners are those con­fi­dent enough to be who they are,

and who fol­low hap­pi­ness wher­ever it leads them. You’re strong enough to do this. There is ex­cite­ment in the stars for you this week. Call 1900 957 223.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23–Dec 21)

Some peo­ple are born wor­ri­ers. They’ll fret about ev­ery­thing – from big things right down to what they’re hav­ing for din­ner. It’s easy to be baf­fled by their ca­pac­ity to over­think. But wor­ry­ing is ac­cu­mu­la­tive. Your con­cerns have been build­ing up. Eval­u­ate whether you need to ex­pend so much ef­fort think­ing things through now. It’s likely that you don’t. You can al­ter what you want and make it work for you. Call 1900 957 223.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22–Jan 20)

We all know wind-up mer­chants, the folk who press and poke us just to get a re­ac­tion. Although it’s not easy, the best way to deal with these peo­ple is to ig­nore them. To do so, though, takes in­ner strength, re­silience and brav­ery. Luck­ily you have all these qual­i­ties in spades. Use them and you’ll soon be able to watch your trou­bles fly away. You can work magic in your world this week. Call to find out how: 1900 957 223.

AQUARIUS ( Jan 21–Feb 19)

The late, great Rik May­all played Lord Flash­heart in the sit­com Black­ad­der. He’d crash through ceil­ings, win hearts, and steal scenes. It could be that some­one’s mak­ing a sim­i­lar im­pres­sion on you. De­spite your­self, you’ll be swept up in a mo­ment, brim­ming with pas­sion. But you’re known for your clar­ity. Let this be en­hanced by, rather than aban­doned for, emo­tions. There’s great news if you are look­ing for in­spi­ra­tion. Call 1900 957 223.

PISCES (Feb 20–Mar 20)

Ap­pear­ances are of­ten de­cep­tive. How many times has a per­son, a sit­u­a­tion or an of­fer turned out to be ex­actly what it said on the tin? Don’t take things at face value. Even when they seem straight­for­ward, the weight of­ten lies in the nu­ance and de­tail. An ap­par­ent threat in your emo­tional life is one such ex­am­ple this week. Don’t be blind to the of­fer of rec­on­cil­i­a­tion it con­ceals. There are in­sights and rev­e­la­tions in store for you. Call 1900 957 223.

ARIES (Mar 21–Apr 20)

Hind­sight is a won­der­ful thing. We’ve all made de­ci­sions that would have been eas­ier if we had only known what we know now. But you learn from ev­ery chap­ter of your life. What’s gone be­fore has made you who you are. You can’t change the past, but you can change the present. So stop look­ing back­wards and turn your at­ten­tion to now! You can work magic in your world this week. Call to find out how: 1900 957 223.

TAURUS (Apr 21–May 21)

Is it a strength to think with our heads more than with our hearts? Is it ra­tio­nal? Not only is our heart the seat of our emo­tions – of love, friend­ship, and gen­eros­ity – but it’s also the home of the in­sights and per­cep­tions that have kept us alive, for thou­sands of years. All I’m try­ing to say is that if some­thing has been nag­ging away at you re­cently, you might just do well to heed what it’s say­ing. You can find in­spi­ra­tion and make change hap­pen. Call 1900 957 223.

GEMINI (May 22–Jun 22)

We all know our time on Earth is lim­ited, and that the world will go on spin­ning long af­ter we’re gone. Yet, deep down, we be­lieve in our in­de­struc­tibil­ity. Eter­nal life, though, is only avail­able to the deities and gods of our myths and faiths. Re­cently you’ve been feel­ing that you have al­most God-like pow­ers. Per­haps, this week, you do. Use them well. Call if you are look­ing to make some pos­i­tive changes: 1900 957 223.
