Any idea how many stars there are in the heav­ens? Or par­ti­cles of sand in the desert? Or strands of grass in your gar­den? Ev­ery­where we look, there’s proof of the in­fi­nite. But, we turn our heads away, pre­fer­ring, in­stead, to nour­ish the com­fort­ing myth of our own eter­nity. Of course, noth­ing lasts for­ever. Luck­ily, that also ap­plies to the spe­cific worry or con­cern that’s cur­rently plagu­ing you. Although it’s im­por­tant to take the is­sues you’re cur­rently fac­ing se­ri­ously, don’t let them con­sume you. What re­ally mat­ters is the big­ger pic­ture. The plan­ets are align­ing in pow­er­ful po­si­tions. Max­imise their ef­fect. Call 1900 957 223. We’re build­ing up to­wards the his­toric mo­ment when Uranus, the in­no­va­tive change-maker, moves signs. But, if that’s the head­liner, there are some good qual­ity sup­port acts to keep us en­ter­tained. The sun’s op­po­si­tion with Jupiter and its har­mo­nious link to Pluto should warm up the crowd, while the align­ment Venus makes with Nep­tune and Mer­cury and Pluto’s square off will add some drama. So, though the week prom­ises artis­tic per­for­mances and ad­ven­tur­ous cre­ativ­ity, this ce­les­tial fes­ti­val is only just get­ting started!

Aries Mar21-Apr20

A cru­cial de­ci­sion is di­vid­ing your loy­al­ties. You feel torn be­tween both sides, confused and con­flicted. More im­por­tantly, you don’t feel able to ar­tic­u­late your con­cerns. Since you un­der­stand the need for clar­ity and are wor­ried about dither­ing, you’re fak­ing con­fi­dence. The prob­lem is that oth­ers look to you for guid­ance. If you’re not care­ful, you’ll end up in a never-end­ing spi­ral of copied re­sponses. Some­one needs to be­gin by ac­knowl­edg­ing – and ar­tic­u­lat­ing – a shared dilemma. Be con­fi­dent enough to make the first move. The plan­ets are align­ing in pow­er­ful po­si­tions. Max­imise their ef­fect. Call 1900 957 223.

Taurus Apr21- May21

Why do we stick to the same well-trod­den path? Is it be­cause it al­ways leads us in the di­rec­tion we want to go? Or just that we fear what might hap­pen if we were to sud­denly strike out in a dif­fer­ent di­rec­tion? There’s some­thing com­fort­ing about do­ing the things we al­ways do. But, there’s some­thing sti­fling, too. You’re yearn­ing for new ex­pe­ri­ences and broader hori­zons. As the sun op­poses your tra­di­tional ruler Jupiter (the zo­diac’s very own In­di­ana Jones), there has never been a bet­ter time to start that ad­ven­ture. The plan­ets are align­ing in pow­er­ful po­si­tions. Max­imise their ef­fect. Call 1900 957 223.

Gemini May22-Jun22 Can­cer Jun23-Jul23

Have you ever felt guilty for some­thing you didn’t do? A strongly made ac­cu­sa­tion can have that ef­fect. We all know that feel­ing of shift­ing in our seats, not know­ing where to look when a teacher is al­leg­ing bad be­hav­iour. And it’s a ter­ri­ble thing to be wrongly ac­cused… we can eas­ily find our­selves think­ing we did some­thing that we didn’t do. Maybe we just for­got that we did it. Other peo­ple may be treat­ing you as if you’ve done some­thing that you haven’t done. This week, though, your in­no­cence will shine through. The plan­ets are align­ing in pow­er­ful po­si­tions. Max­imise their ef­fect. Call 1900 957 223.

Leo Jul24-Aug23

Er­ror-prone peo­ple are of­ten the most sen­si­ble. That might sound para­dox­i­cal, but those of us who are well-versed in the art of mis­take-mak­ing grow to be adept crit­i­cal thinkers. We in­ter­ro­gate our own ideas in an at­tempt to pro­tect against fail­ing. We plan for dis­as­ter, rather than suc­cess. If some­thing goes wrong, we know how to fix it. A brain­box, on the other hand, would be flum­moxed and floun­der. Your best course of ac­tion this week? Your ruler’s align­ments en­cour­age con­fi­dence, but not over­con­fi­dence. The plan­ets are align­ing in pow­er­ful po­si­tions. Max­imise their ef­fect. Call 1900 957 223.

Virgo Aug24-Sep23

A friend who was a fash­ion writer once mis­tak­enly wrote that the lat­est de­sign trend was for ‘tiger spots’. It made us laugh – but now, who knows? With the se­crets of DNA de­coded and cloning tech­niques ad­vanc­ing, per­haps one day we’ll have a spotty tiger and a stripy leop­ard. Un­for­tu­nately, though, these sci­en­tific break­throughs do noth­ing to im­prove our un­der­stand­ing of other hu­mans. If you want to change some­one’s at­ti­tude, there’s no serum avail­able – just the old-fash­ioned method of gen­tle per­sua­sion. You can do it! The plan­ets are align­ing in pow­er­ful po­si­tions. Max­imise their ef­fect. Call 1900 957 223.

Libra Sep24- Oct23

Don’t panic! The asy­lum hasn’t been taken over by the in­mates – they’re much too sen­si­ble for that. They’re the ones smart enough to point out that this world of ours is topsy-turvy, back-to-front, un­just and un­re­li­able. That takes courage. The rest of us, on the other hand, are still in­sist­ing on pur­pose. We’re con­vinced there’s a grand plan out there. We find com­fort in telling our­selves that ev­ery­thing hap­pens for a rea­son – and well it might. But, noth­ing is quite as it seems this week. Don’t take any­thing at face value. The plan­ets are align­ing in pow­er­ful po­si­tions. Max­imise their ef­fect. Call 1900 957 223.

Scorpio Oct24- Nov22

Aches and pains aren’t some­thing we’re used to tol­er­at­ing. We take our­selves to the doc­tors or the phar­macy and sort it out. We trawl through web­site after web­site, analysing symp­toms and pos­si­ble cures un­til we’re sure what’s wrong and how to fix it. So why, when we’re in in­tense emo­tional pain, do we shrug it off, brush it un­der the car­pet and pre­tend it’ll go away? We as­sume that strug­gling in si­lence is our only choice. But, there’s a sec­ond op­tion. Make a de­ci­sive change. You’re be­ing of­fered an op­por­tu­nity – take it. The plan­ets are align­ing in pow­er­ful po­si­tions. Max­imise their ef­fect. Call 1900 957 223.

Sagittarius Nov23- Dec21

When you have a packed “To Do” list, it’s easy to get side­tracked in do­ing the sim­plest jobs first. But, usu­ally, it’s much more ef­fec­tive to pri­ori­tise and fo­cus on the tough­est job first. Time-man­age­ment gu­rus re­fer to this as do­ing the “worst first”. With so much as­tro­log­i­cal ac­tion this week, you’ll need all your re­solve to keep fo­cused and avoid get­ting side-tracked. Don’t be afraid to tackle a task you’ve been dread­ing; it will be eas­ier than you think. Don’t spread your­self too thin else­where. The re­wards will be huge. The plan­ets are align­ing in pow­er­ful po­si­tions. Max­imise their ef­fect. Call 1900 957 223.

Capricorn Dec22-Jan20

In some ways, the past is all we have. What is per­son­al­ity if not the sum to­tal of our ex­pe­ri­ences and the nar­ra­tive that binds to­gether the story of our lives? Ex­cept, we’re more than that. We’re just as much what we do now and what we work to­wards as what we’ve achieved. This week, don’t let an old way of think­ing sab­o­tage your chance to ex­plore new hori­zons. You can grow into a role you might pre­vi­ously have thought was be­yond your abil­i­ties. It’s not! Frankly, not much is. Act with pur­pose and you’ll see what I mean. The plan­ets are align­ing in pow­er­ful po­si­tions. Max­imise their ef­fect. Call 1900 957 223.

Aquarius Jan21- Feb19

Ev­ery­where we look, there’s ev­i­dence of cre­ative minds that have been given the free­dom to pur­sue their in­spi­ra­tion and to man­i­fest their goals. Too of­ten, we dis­miss our own ideas as un­re­al­is­tic flights of fancy. But, they could be no­tions that can be de­vel­oped to make a real dif­fer­ence to many lives. As Mer­cury makes a tense an­gle with Pluto this week while pre­par­ing to con­verge with your ruler, don’t let doubt keep you from ex­plor­ing your most pre­cious de­signs. You have an idea that re­ally could be trans­for­ma­tive. The plan­ets are align­ing in pow­er­ful po­si­tions. Max­imise their ef­fect. Call 1900 957 223.

Pisces Feb20- Mar20

It’s not per­fect. It’s not even ideal. But, surely it’s worth a shot? A step in the right di­rec­tion is bet­ter than sit­ting stub­bornly on the ground. A lot bet­ter, in fact! Have a go. Dis­cover what’s out there. Though it ap­pears as if an un­de­sir­able ob­sta­cle stands be­tween you and your dream, the uni­verse has seen fit to in­ter­vene. The goal­posts are in sight. Sum­mon your strength; you will be shocked by what you man­age to score. As Venus and Nep­tune align, don’t let past ex­pe­ri­ences stop you from achiev­ing your dream. The plan­ets are align­ing in pow­er­ful po­si­tions. Max­imise their ef­fect. Call 1900 957 223.
