How high up your agenda are hap­pi­ness and suc­cess? What about com­fort and con­tent­ment? The an­swers may seem ob­vi­ous, yet re­cently you have been fo­cus­ing on some­thing en­tirely dif­fer­ent. It’s true you’re deal­ing with a prob­lem­atic sit­u­a­tion that can­not be ig­nored. But there’s a sug­ges­tion you could be giv­ing it too much at­ten­tion. Could a past ex­pe­ri­ence be un­der­min­ing your choices? You can change that this week. Do your­self a favour! Treat your­self. For ex­cit­ing news, call 1900 957 223. and leave space for a few more with mid-morn­ing cof­fee. You’d rather have is­sues to deal with than be faced with the space to pon­der your past. As long as you don’t put too much on your plate this week, you can eas­ily di­gest any dif­fi­cul­ties and en­joy your­self in the process. You can find in­spi­ra­tion and make change hap­pen! Call 1900 957 223.

CAN­CER Don’t think things are go­ing to carry on as they are. If you’re do­ing your best to stop a change from hap­pen­ing, you’re bet­ter off sav­ing your en­ergy. What’s tak­ing place has a rhythm of its own. If the thought of be­ing pow­er­less is mak­ing you anx­ious, find the courage to re­lax. All you have to do is take the helm and gen­tly guide a process that has im­pe­tus of its own. If you need some in­spi­ra­tion, this is your week! Call 1900 957 223.

LEO You’ve got so many peo­ple mak­ing de­mands on you, no won­der you’re feel­ing swamped. Re­mem­ber that valu­able re­la­tion­ships aren’t based on self-sac­ri­fice. You ab­so­lutely have the right to ask of other peo­ple what they ask of you. If you stick at only what you do, you’ll be very glad you’ve hon­oured your com­mit­ments. You’re do­ing well, de­spite chal­leng­ing cir­cum­stances. There is ex­cite­ment in the stars for you this week. Call 1900 957 223.

VIRGO Your in­ner as­pi­ra­tions are com­ing to the fore­front of your mind. So how does it feel to be dream­ing about chas­ing pies in the sky? Surely you know bet­ter. Isn’t it time you got back to be­ing prac­ti­cal? But if you don’t dream, how can a dream ever come true? You’re set­ting a process in mo­tion lead­ing you to­wards a longheld de­sire. Don’t be dis­tracted! Find in­spi­ra­tion to make the changes you need in your life. Call 1900 957 223.

Ac­cord­ing to the most re­cent Mel­bourne Live Mu­sic Cen­sus, Mel­bourne has more mu­sic venues per capita than any other city in the world. Be­ing stuck for where to go when you’re spoilt for choice is a happy co­nun­drum, but you can be­gin by nar­row­ing it down to these stand­outs.


Base­ment Discs record store, be­low Block Place in the city, plays host to an eclec­tic ar­ray of late-week lunchtime gigs. Some big names have played tiny shows in front of these shelves of vinyl, in­clud­ing Billy Bragg and Michelle Shocked.


In Brunswick’s in­dus­trial back­streets, Ru­bix Ware­house is a hot­bed of mu­sic, cre­ativ­ity and colour, lit by neon and cov­ered with mu­rals. Ca­ter­ing for ev­ery­thing from indie al­bum launches to DJ par­ties, this is one of Mel­bourne’s most sought-af­ter ex­clu­sive venues. FOR THOSE ABOUT TO ROCK

Rock’n’roll ain’t noise pol­lu­tion, es­pe­cially at Cherry Bar on AC/DC Lane (off Flin­ders Lane). Pop­u­lar with vis­it­ing bands, nearly ev­ery night of the week here, you can get your­self a loud and proud fix of rock and blues.


If your life is a cabaret, or mu­si­cal com­edy is more your scene, then The But­ter­fly Club is for you. It’s a muchloved lit­tle city the­atre and bar with de­light­fully kitsch decor, and is where both Tim Minchin and Ed­die Per­fect be­gan their glit­ter­ing ca­reers.


Fancy belt­ing out a tune? Head to War­bur­ton Lane for a late snifter at Mur­mur Pi­ano Bar. We can’t guar­an­tee John at the bar will get you your drinks for free, but when the whole place joins in on your song re­quest, there’s no place you’ll rather be.
