Whitsunday Times - - CHILL - with Patsy Ben­nett Au­thor of Astrol­ogy: Se­crets of the Moon @ pat­sy­ben­net­tas­trol­ for read­ings as­tro­


There is as much po­ten­tial for a won­der­ful week as there is for a stress­ful and chal­leng­ing time. The se­cret lies in how you nav­i­gate the chal­lenges. Satur­day's New Moon sug­gests that a more in­clu­sive and nur­tur­ing ap­proach to do­mes­tic and prop­erty-re­lated mat­ters will work well. And the se­cret to this suc­cess lies in hon­ing your com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills: less fire, more dy­namism.


Get set to in­fuse your life with more of what – and who – you want in it. It’s time to in­dulge your­self a lit­tle in all the lux­u­ries and treats and favourite ac­tiv­i­ties life has on offer. A re­fresh­ing re­la­tion­ship with a group or an or­gan­i­sa­tion could sig­nal stim­u­lat­ing times ahead. Be ready to im­ple­ment changes you’d like to see in your daily life. Ro­mance could blos­som too.


A fair go, an equal out­come, the chance to speak the truth, are all as­pects of the week that will en­cour­age you to speak up. En­sure you ap­proach dis­cus­sions care­fully as op­posed to tact­lessly, or you could cre­ate the op­po­site of your de­sired out­come: waves of con­flict. Satur­day’s New Moon sug­gests a fresh ap­proach to some­one close could in­clude more nur­tu­rance and sup­port.


Satur­day’s New Moon may ask that you find ways to strengthen your con­vic­tions and your be­lief in your own abil­ity to suc­ceed. There may be mat­ters to do with nur­tur­ing – and es­pe­cially self-nur­tur­ing - that arise dur­ing this time, as cir­cum­stances may ask that you boost your self-es­teem and well­be­ing. And, when you do, you could take a dream closer to re­al­ity. Avoid gam­bling.


If you've been plan­ning to launch your­self into a fresh arena, or to broaden your hori­zons in some way, this is the week to do it, as a nur­tur­ing as­pect in your ca­reer and sta­tus sec­tor should sup­port your plans. What’s more, you should find that peo­ple you must agree with should be more amenable. Avoid: push­ing for re­sults and con­flict, es­pe­cially to­wards Fri­day.


Satur­day’s New Moon will be in your op­po­site sign, sug­gest­ing your re­la­tion­ships will be in the spot­light, and could blos­som. How­ever, your daily rou­tine, work or health mat­ters will take the fo­cus. If you’re lucky enough to be on hol­i­day, this prom­ises to be ideal, and if you’re work­ing, you may ex­pe­ri­ence a fi­nan­cial or ego boost. Avoid con­flict to­wards Fri­day.


Satur­day’s New Moon in sen­si­tive and nur­tur­ing Cancer sig­ni­fies a fresh chap­ter in a key re­la­tion­ship, and one where your abil­i­ties to nur­ture oth­ers and your­self hold the key to suc­cess, es­pe­cially do­mes­ti­cally and in con­nec­tion with prop­erty or fam­ily. Mean­while, a project or joint ven­ture could take great leaps for­ward this week, so en­sure you make the in­ten­tion to suc­ceed.


You’re adept at find­ing peace and har­mony in the least likely ar­eas, and if any­one can cre­ate a peace­ful mood, it’s you. This week, you’ll en­joy pro­vid­ing this in­flu­ence at home and with peo­ple you col­lab­o­rate and share du­ties with. A change of cir­cum­stance could be ideal, too, bring­ing a lit­tle breath of fresh air into your daily rou­tine. Be imag­i­na­tive, but stick with calm, too.


Your fam­ily and the ideas of nur­tur­ing and cre­ativ­ity will all ap­peal this week; per­haps you will spend more time with fam­ily or with some­one you love. A cre­ative, writ­ten or imag­i­na­tive work of art may kick-start a more cre­ative phase, and the more you de­velop your abil­i­ties, the more tal­ent and abil­ity you’ll dis­cover. A pos­i­tive de­vel­op­ment at home should please you.


Satur­day’s Cancer New Moon re­ally does seal the deal on a fresh chap­ter in your life. For many Crabs, this will in­volve a fresh ap­pre­ci­a­tion of your work and/or daily rou­tine and, for some, the chance to deepen your com­mit­ment to your own self-heal­ing, in­de­pen­dence and help­ful­ness to oth­ers. A part­ner­ship or joint ven­ture, busi­ness or per­sonal, could flour­ish, as could ro­mance.


This week, a fresh ap­proach to the ar­eas you share in life, such as your joint fi­nances at home and your in­vest­ments, for ex­am­ple, will ben­e­fit from a re­view. How could you be a lit­tle more sup­port­ive of some­one? How could shared projects be more mu­tu­ally en­hanc­ing? Luck­ily, this is an ex­cel­lent week for dis­cus­sions. But you must avoid ar­gu­ments to­wards Fri­day.


If do­mes­tic im­prove­ment, in the shape of DIY or im­proved dy­nam­ics at home, ap­peals to you, this is the week to get some­thing started. Satur­day’s New Moon will help you to cre­ate a more sup­port­ive at­mos­phere at home; ideal for win­ter co­coon­ing. If you’re in­ter­ested in spir­i­tual de­vel­op­ment, this is also an ideal time to de­velop your be­liefs. Avoid con­flict to­wards Fri­day.
