Bray People - - MIND GAMES - By Car­los O’Con­nor

Tau­rus April 21 – May 21

There is some­thing that you are dy­ing to ask some­one. You have con­sid­ered get­ting some­one else to ap­proach them. You have con­sid­ered writ­ing. Per­haps a phone call would be the way for­ward? Stop pon­der­ing and just come out and ask them. Not only will it be good for your blood pres­sure but it will also take a weight from your mind. By the week­end you should have some­thing else to oc­cupy your thoughts.

Virgo Au­gust 24 – Septem­ber 23

When you start talk­ing to other peo­ple this week about your con­cerns and hopes, most likely they will share them. Why not get to­gether to make a bet­ter case for change? Some­one who has been a bit of a thorn in your side is hav­ing prob­lems of their own. Will they take their eye off the ball? Most likely. What you need is a bit more se­cu­rity. Any­thing this week that of­fers you the chance of that needs in­ves­ti­gat­ing.

Capricorn De­cem­ber 20 – Jan­uary 20

Whilst wait­ing for some­thing won­der­ful to hap­pen, do all that you can to make sure that it does. Just sitting around is not much of an op­tion. Any­way it’s bor­ing! Get­ting to­gether with a friend or rel­a­tive mid­week gives you a fresh out­look on an old prob­lem. Bring­ing a sense of the ridicu­lous to this re­ally helps to get it into per­spec­tive. Who wants to be a grouch? Not you!

Gemini May 22 – June 21

I want you to be sure that you fully ap­pre­ci­ate your tal­ents. Please sit down and make a list. Don’t for­get to in­clude the small mat­ter of your kind­ness, con­sid­er­a­tion and com­pas­sion. Now you can maybe see why some­one is so fond of you? There is no mys­tery but, if you don’t let them into your life, they could give up. This week we should go back to ba­sics and ask, ‘What re­ally pleases me in my life?’ Hold onto it!

Libra Septem­ber 24 – Oc­to­ber 23

When you look around you it can seem that other peo­ple have all the luck. It has been a long win­ter. It has also been a long time since you counted your bless­ings. When do­ing so this week look to the friend­ships that can be made stronger by more reg­u­lar con­tact. It is in your in­ter­ac­tions with oth­ers that the mo­ments of most hap­pi­ness come to you, not to be for­got­ten.

Aquarius Jan­uary 21 - Fe­bru­ary 19

Things are nat­u­rally chang­ing around you. Some­thing that you have taken for granted may no longer be an op­tion. That may be very an­noy­ing but try to see it as an op­por­tu­nity to change your attitude. A bet­ter way may be found in a new friend or new tech­nol­ogy. Wel­come the chance to make life eas­ier and more sat­is­fy­ing, even if it does mean read­ing a few books.

Cancer June 22 – July 23

Some dis­rup­tions to this week can be an­noy­ing but try to see the funny side. It some­times seems that when we are most con­fi­dent about some­thing, that’s when it goes wrong. Well, it isn’t ac­tu­ally wrong and you don’t need to fix it. Just be a bit more flex­i­ble and don’t ex­pect per­fec­tion. Go to that quiet place where you feel se­cure and think it through. En­cour­age some­one with spe­cial knowl­edge to help out.

Scorpio Oc­to­ber 24 – Novem­ber 22

Be­fore you rush ahead with a plan this week, con­sider what is the best ap­proach. The eas­i­est way is not nec­es­sar­ily the only or best way for­ward. Life is a bit of a game of chess some­times. Mak­ing the wrong move can set you back. Some­one wants you to tell them ev­ery­thing but you don’t have to. An air of mys­tery can be both at­trac­tive and in­trigu­ing. You want to be both, don’t you?

Pisces Fe­bru­ary 20 - March 20

Take care this week when deal­ing with a sen­si­tive soul or by mid­week you could re­ally have put your foot in it. Any ex­changes, par­tic­u­larly with strangers, should be con­sid­ered. When mak­ing ar­range­ments for the week­end, be sure that a loved one has given you the right mes­sage. Are you sup­posed to read be­tween the lines? Ad­mit if you are un­sure rather than risk it.

Leo July 24 – Au­gust 23

So, you have done the spring clean­ing? Cleared out the garage? Thrown out that old suit­case? Where do we go from here? Well, maybe it is time to let go of some old clut­ter in your mem­ory that is al­ways pop­ping up and up­set­ting you. Like a com­puter mem­ory, you can just wipe things out. Don’t try too hard, just let it hap­pen. The week­end brings a happy mem­ory to start fill­ing in those blanks, so en­joy it.

Sagittarius Novem­ber 23 – De­cem­ber 21

You are al­most there. A lit­tle bit more ef­fort and the prospects can change dra­mat­i­cally. Maybe you are tired of flog­ging what you see as a dead horse. Keep your cash in your pocket but give more of your time. What have you to lose? Plan to be in a good place at the week­end where it is pos­si­ble to com­pletely re­lax. By then you will need some at­ten­tion and pam­per­ing.


March 21 – April 20

In a week full of en­ergy and inspiration, some­thing seems to be hold­ing you back. If you are want­ing to im­press some­one it could be the risk of fail­ure that is on your mind. For­get it. This is a time to just be your­self and en­joy what­ever comes along. Deep down there is a strong feel­ing of con­tent­ment with your life. Why change it for any­one? Per­haps you need to think past the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion and start plan­ning your next ad­ven­ture.
