Mercury has made t wo challenging angles. Yesterday, it linked to Jupiter; today it aligns with Pluto. It suggests the need to come to terms with an issue that has proved hard to understand. Today, with Mercury at home in Virgo, it’s like having the instincts and intellect of Jessica Fletcher, Sherlock Holmes and Inspector Clouseau, all rolled into one. Our powers of deduction are strong. And, with Jupiter’s keen sense of exploration, and urge for wisdom, a certain conundrum won’t remain a mystery for long. Now where’s my magnifying glass…

How do you know that something’s a great work of art? One definition might be that you can return to it again and again, and keep finding something new. You may have a painting that never ceases to inspire, a poem that you go back to, or a piece of music that transports you to a dif ferent plane. Returning to problems or fears, though, only strengthens their hold on you. Don’t dwell too long on a trick y situation - not when there’s so much excitement to be had this weekend. Discover why August has so many opportunities. Call 1900 959 005.

When we’re tied to a place, a person or a situation for any length of time, we become comfortable. We experience a sensation of loss when we’re turned loose. This means that sometimes, even if we aren’t particularly happy with our circumstances, we hesitate to leave them behind. Venus, in your sign, has moved from opposing restrictive Saturn, to being encouraged by breakaway Uranus. Though your new- found freedom may feel daunting, it’s there for the taking. Your in- depth forecast for the whole of August can really help. Call 1900 959 005.

Imagine a future where telepathy is commonplace. I’ve witnessed many instances of people communicating using their minds alone, and predict that as human beings progress, more of us will be able to harness our psychic abilities. This will bring great benefits – and challenges too. Would people be arrested just for their ideas? How would we protect our innermost feelings from prying eyes? Such problems are for another day. Today, no one can read your mind. You can relax. Don’t miss your inspiring in- depth forecast for August. Call 1900 959 005.

There’s a common notion that you get back what you give out. But is that really true? Most of the time, there seems to be no rhyme or reason to the gif t s bestowed on some people, and the tragedies on others. Where is the justice? Are we simply playthings for the gods? Though we may never know the answer, what we do know, is that the Universe has faith in you right now. You might not have seen the evidence yet, but it’s there, working behind the scenes. Believe in it! August is a powerful month for you. Find out more. Call 1900 959 005.

You’re not short of bright ideas, but you’re not always sure that you have the momentum to see them through. And, what’s the point of pursuing fruitless endeavours? Yet you, and your fruit bowl, have less to worry about than you might imagine. Think of the spiky durian fruit who’s smell has led to it being banned in hotels and airports. Some brave soul must have taken a bite and realised it s flesh tasted delicious. As Venus links to Uranus this weekend, everything will be well… just peachy! August brings great potential for change.

We’ve talked recently about you having a dif ficult message to get across. You’ve reached a turning point that’s not easy to navigate. But that’s not bad news.
