1. PARIS DREAM­ING 1

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Stellar - - Travel - By Ka­t­rina

In­spired by haute cou­ture, The Penin­sula Paris oc­cu­pies an en­tire block near the Arc de Tri­om­phe and the rooms are huge for the tightly packed city. It’s like step­ping back in time with ex­quis­ite de­tail­ing, such as a crys­tal leaf chan­de­lier and stonework metic­u­lously re­stored to re­flect the glory of the 1908 orig­i­nal. Fash­ion week venues are vis­ual spec­ta­cles (think Chanel at the Grand Palais or Louis Vuit­ton at the Lou­vre), but get off the beaten track and head to Le Train Bleu restau­rant, where Olivier Theyskens showed this year. The or­nate fres­coes and gilded in­te­ri­ors sit above un­aware train trav­ellers at Gare de Lyon. y Lib­erté. Set your wal­let free. There are so many com­pli­men­tary (or nearly free) things to do in Paris, such as ad­mis­sion to most mu­se­ums on the first Sun­day of the month, Paris Greeters walk­ing tours or a whiz through the city on a Vélib’, the large-scale Parisian bike-share that costs a pal­try $2.60 per day.

SAGITTARIUS Don’t you wish you could spend your days swing­ing in a ham­mock, a sea breeze blow­ing in your hair? The prob­lem is, you’d need to clone your­self first. Then one of you could do the day job while the other en­joyed the good life. Un­for­tu­nately, the like­li­hood of this be­com­ing re­al­ity is slim. This week, things will be far from quiet, but what is hap­pen­ing to you is per­fect. Your spook­ily ac­cu­rate fore­cast is ready. Call 1900 957 223.

CAPRICORN Are you well on the road to suc­cess? If not, rest as­sured that your ef­forts have not been in vain. But you don’t need to win at any cost. This week, it’s worth con­sid­er­ing the more sub­tle as­sets in your life (such as friend­ships and anx­i­ety-free liv­ing) and ad­just­ing your sights slightly. By with­draw­ing a lit­tle now, you gain a great deal in the fu­ture. Let this full moon show you the way to a hap­pier life. Call 1900 957 223.

AQUARIUS When it comes to re­la­tion­ships, you need to con­sider the pos­si­bil­ity of change. But you of­ten do that, and since you find pre­dictabil­ity un­ap­peal­ing you will be more than able to cope with the trans­for­ma­tions that take place this week. Don’t worry, these de­vel­op­ments won’t be de­struc­tive – in­stead they’ll open up the pos­si­bil­i­ties that you’ve been wait­ing for. You can al­ter what you want and make it work for you. Call 1900 957 223.

PISCES These days, tech­nol­ogy changes faster than the weather in Mel­bourne. One minute you are in pos­ses­sion of the lat­est gadget, the next you’re hold­ing a di­nosaur of a phone. Yet for many peo­ple, tech­no­log­i­cal ad­vances are ir­rel­e­vant. It’s worth re­mem­ber­ing what lit­tle im­pact pur­chases make to

hap­pi­ness. This week, you have ex­actly what you need to deal with any dilem­mas. The plan­ets say that won­der­ful changes are pos­si­ble. Call 1900 957 223.

ARIES Ma­hatma Gandhi said that a “no” ut­tered from the deep­est con­vic­tion is bet­ter than a “yes” merely ut­tered to please, or worse, to avoid trou­ble. This week, the cos­mos en­cour­ages you to trust your in­tu­ition and fol­low your heart. If you’re able to take all sides into con­sid­er­a­tion and then do what feels right and fair, you’ll be sur­prised at the progress you make. In­sights are avail­able to you this week. Find out more. Call 1900 957 223.

(MAR 21–APR 20)

TAURUS When some­one isn’t speak­ing from the heart, their words may sound right, but we in­tuit they’re not be­ing en­tirely hon­est and our guard goes up. We then be­come cau­tious about how we re­spond, and share our feel­ings less openly. You’ve spent too long feel­ing torn be­tween di­vided loy­al­ties. Com­ing next is a clear sense of pur­pose and the con­fi­dence to fol­low it. Call if you are looking to make some pos­i­tive changes: 1900 957 223.

(APR 21–MAY 21)

GEMINI As your ruler moves op­po­site your sign, it turns your at­ten­tion to­wards the an­tics of oth­ers. I don’t mean to con­jure the im­age of a nosy neigh­bour, but for ev­ery busy­body there’s some­one whose in­ter­est in oth­ers makes a valu­able con­tri­bu­tion to so­ci­ety. Al­low your­self to be in­spired by a va­ri­ety of peo­ple this week. The in­sights gained could prove ex­cit­ing. There’s great news if you are looking for in­spi­ra­tion. Call 1900 957 223.

CAN­CER Ap­pre­ci­a­tion of art is sub­jec­tive. Think of your favourite movie – some per­son some­where will have walked out of

the cin­ema be­cause they dis­liked it so much. Crit­i­cism is pow­er­ful and has far-reach­ing con­se­quences. Be aware of that this week, and if you find your­self the sub­ject of some­one’s cri­tique, don’t be de­terred. Trust your in­stincts, and do what feels right to you. In this case, you know best. You can find in­spi­ra­tion and make change hap­pen. Call 1900 957 223.

LEO The full moon is shed­ding light on a be­wil­der­ing sit­u­a­tion. You’re reach­ing a clearer un­der­stand­ing of why some­one acted the way they did, and you would ap­pre­ci­ate talk­ing it through with some­one. But can you de­pend on their judge­ment? If not, be con­fi­dent about your in­sights. The break­through you’re mak­ing is pos­i­tive and will en­able you to move on. There is ex­cite­ment in the stars for you this week. Call 1900 957 223.

( JUL 24–AUG 23)

VIRGO As your ruler changes signs this week, the blue­print that struc­tures your life is be­ing high­lighted. Mer­cury brings the chance to check on the con­struc­tion that un­der­pins and sup­ports your world. There’s a rea­son why you are where you are, and why you’ve made the de­ci­sions that you’ve made. Once you have seen this, you can de­cide where you next want to build; an up­grade is on the way. This week can bring the suc­cess you de­serve in your life. Call 1900 957 223.

(AUG 24–SEP 23)

LIBRA Each day we know roughly what the next 24 hours will hold. Even though the de­tails may sur­prise us, time trucks along on the same old track and this is not go­ing to al­ter. But when you look back at this mo­ment, you’ll re­alise some­thing sig­nif­i­cant has changed. There are im­prove­ments on the way, so watch out for a golden op­por­tu­nity. You can work magic in your world this week. Find out how. Call 1900 957 223.
