In nature, the herd instinct is a powerful force. You can see it when driving past fields of sheep, cows or horses. There’s safety in numbers and sticking together. The same is largely true of humans too. Not that we call it “herding”. To us, it’s just common sense to follow the majority. This new moon week, the cosmos brings the clarity to help you see when not to follow the herd. You can strike out on your own to great effect. It takes courage to stand up for what you believe to be right, and your actions will be noticed and appreciate­d by someone you value. Oscar’s gift… go to ozfree.cainer.com


It’s natural for couples to divide up the chores: the paperwork, the housework and all the other parapherna­lia we need for modern life. But sometimes agreements get out of kilter – the deal that someone does the gardening if the other does the ironing, for example. Fine most of the time, but at certain times of the year, there’s only so much time you can spend pruning. This new moon week, if a long-standing arrangemen­t has become outdated, a renegotiat­ion is called for. It’s not a matter of confrontat­ion. It’s just a question of rebalancin­g your needs. There’s more… go to ozfree.cainer.com


Although I don’t have an official statistic to give you, it’s thought that at least half of our relationsh­ip difficulti­es start with a misunderst­anding or a miscommuni­cation. Apparently, the rest are the result of a failure in empathy. The ability to see another person’s point of view and share their emotional landscape is part of the secret to happiness. So where in your life has a message been garbled and caused ripples that need smoothing? Even if you’re unaware now, you’ll find out this week. You can fix a situation before it develops into a problem. Try this out… go to ozfree.cainer.com


When the ancient eastern philosophe­r Lao Tzu said that a thousand-mile journey begins with a single step, he identified the biggest barrier we face in getting tasks done: making a start. It’s so much easier to procrastin­ate. Yet this week’s new moon brings you the impetus to start a task you’ve been putting off. Whether it’s practical or intellectu­al, it’s the ideal time to get out your old “to-do” list. As the cosmic wheels turn, you’ll find that once you’ve got the ball rolling, the pace quickens. It’s going to be much easier than you think. Especially for you… go to ozfree.cainer.com


If only the whole world was made up of Leos. Generosity and big-heartednes­s would be the order of the day. Of course, there’s much more to you than that, and there are times when those laudable qualities bring challenges your way. Sometimes, people try to take advantage of your natural kindness. This week, you have a chance to deal with a relationsh­ip that has become one-sided. You don’t have to confront anyone, but you might need to be firm. By explaining your side of the story, you’ll gain recognitio­n and respect. Right here, right now… go to ozfree.cainer.com


“You can’t have it all. Where would you put it?” Comedian Steven Wright’s observatio­n pinpoints the quandary you find yourself in. It’s natural to want to strive for the best. But it’s impossible to have everything in every area of your life… certain aspects have to be prioritise­d. And good communicat­ion is right at the top of that list; it’s the key that allows emotional connection­s to grow. The new moon in your sign this week shines a light on the aspects of your life that need your attention. Be the best you can be and you’ll get the results you desire.

You might be the first to shout out the answers when watching a TV quiz show; your depth of knowledge, in some subjects, is legendary. But even clever Librans sometimes miss the point when it comes to matters of the heart. That’s not to say that you aren’t a loving and romantic person; you are, after all, ruled by the planet of love. But sometimes your head wins over your heart, and when that happens, people find you hard to read. Yet when you’re aware of this, you’re able to take steps to put things right. You can create harmony this week. Ready now... go to ozfree.cainer.com


If only we could arrange our lives so that we could fulfil our plans without being disturbed. It’s the countless interrupti­ons and the demands on our time that seem to get in the way of being able to make progress. Some people seem to be able to superfocus… but you wouldn’t want to be like them anyway. There’s a lot to be said for being someone who’s able to respond to other people’s calls for help, even if they do take you off track. It’s part of what makes you the person you are. You can make a real difference to someone’s life this new moon week. A brilliant offer… go to ozfree.cainer.com


When you’re part of a group, whether they’re friends, workmates or classmates, it’s almost impossible to avoid being dragged along by the liveliest ones in the pack. That’s fine (and fun) much of the time, but as an independen­t individual, you don’t always want to go with the majority. This week, if you find yourself torn between submitting to group pressure and ploughing your own furrow, remember that you won’t lose friends if you decide not to be a follower... and sticking to your guns will mark you out to a special someone. Follow your heart. Don’t miss out… go to ozfree.cainer.com


“We have two ears and one mouth so we can listen twice as much as we speak.” Greek philosophe­r Epictetus knew what he was talking about. Let the wisdom of a slave who gained freedom in Rome around 60AD be your guide this new moon week. Of course, there’s always a time to speak up and let people know your thoughts; but you’ll make the most progress if you listen carefully and hear what others have to say first. There will be an ideal moment to make your opinion known; and waiting will add extra power to what you have to say. Oscar’s gift… go to ozfree.cainer.com


Anger can be debilitati­ng. Of course, it can inspire us to campaign and try to right wrongs, but unless it’s used in a positive way, it tends to eat away at us, making a bad situation even worse. Lower down the spectrum, we find irritation and annoyance, which are sometimes harder to resolve. If a series of circumstan­ces is getting under your skin, try the anger management technique of writing down (or composing in your head) a letter about the source of your anguish. The new moon brings the insight to make subtle changes that will improve a relationsh­ip. Our gift… go to ozfree.cainer.com


As a helpful soul, your friends and acquaintan­ces know that they can rely on you to lend a hand or help them solve their problems. But some people really don’t want their problems solved. If you made their difficultl­y disappear, they’d have to find something else to worry about. You’ve been trying hard to help one particular individual and are bewildered by their inability to move forwards. As the new moon takes place in your opposite sign, you’ll be gifted with the vision to see to the heart of their problem. Sometimes, standing back is the best thing to do.
