This week, as we ap­proach the last full moon be­fore the sol­stice, Nep­tune changes di­rec­tion and Venus com­pletes an op­po­si­tion to Saturn. This speaks of a need to re­view old pri­or­i­ties and per­haps put some of our more far-fetched fan­tasies on the back burner while we deal with press­ing prac­ti­cal mat­ters. But it also says some­thing about the un­ex­pected plea­sure to be found in deal­ing with what might have once been a re­gret­table chore or an un­avoid­able obli­ga­tion. Real magic is now best found through ac­cept­ing what you might once have felt tempted to re­ject.

ARIES MAR 21–APR 20

Love hurts. So does the truth. Should we then avoid both at all costs? You are be­gin­ning to won­der if you have gone too far. You now find yourself in a dif­fi­cult po­si­tion. To main­tain the in­tegrity of all that you have re­cently said, you have to go in one di­rec­tion. So, to main­tain a sense of peace, ease and tran­quil­lity, do you have to go in an­other di­rec­tion? Of course not. You sim­ply have to stay where you are and keep up the pre­tence. It seems like such a tempt­ing op­tion. But you should fin­ish what you have started. Call me if you are look­ing to make some pos­i­tive changes: 1902 222 500.

TAU­RUS APR 21 – MAY 21

We live in a “free so­ci­ety”. We be­lieve that, as far as pos­si­ble, we should be at lib­erty to do as we please. True free­dom, though, in­cludes the free­dom to choose not to be free. Some­times we feel more com­fort­able when our op­tions are limited by cir­cum­stance or obli­ga­tion. You are won­der­ing how much you now need to be tied by tra­di­tion. The an­swer is: as much (or as lit­tle) as you want to be. If you seek hap­pi­ness in your emo­tional life now, you must al­low yourself to feel free to be led by your heart. There’s great news if you are look­ing for in­spi­ra­tion and hope. Call 1902 222 500.

GEM­INI MAY 22–JUN 22

If, in your emo­tional life, you’re not get­ting the an­swers that you need per­haps you need to try ask­ing some dif­fer­ent ques­tions. Be­gin by phras­ing more po­lite, diplo­matic in­quiries, just in case a harsh ap­proach is putting some­one on the de­fen­sive. If that gets you nowhere, make those ques­tions more awk­ward, blunt and leading. You’ve got a pow­er­ful, in­stinc­tive idea of what’s go­ing on – but it is not yet be­ing sup­ported with much ev­i­dence. That’s not be­cause the ev­i­dence doesn’t ex­ist. Try to be more trust­ing. Find in­spi­ra­tion to make the changes you need in your life. Call 1902 222 500.

CANCER JUN 23–JUL 23

Many people seem to think that life is all about get­ting what you want. If you can de­velop the art of re­tain­ing your ob­jec­tive and ma­nip­u­lat­ing the uni­verse so that it ful­fils your de­sire, then you are en­ti­tled to con­sider yourself suc­cess­ful. Or so they say. Well, ac­tu­ally, they don’t say it very much but they think it, and we all know that they think it – and we think it too. But surely, in your emo­tional life now, in­fin­itely more im­por­tant than be­ing able to get what you want, is the abil­ity to know what you truly want. Soon, you will know that. You can make change hap­pen. Call 1902 222 500.

LEO JUL 24–AUG 23

How do we put bar­ri­ers and ob­sta­cles be­tween our­selves and hap­pi­ness? By de­cid­ing that there is some­thing we need and that if we do not have it, we can­not pos­si­bly feel okay. Or by de­cid­ing that it is in­ap­pro­pri­ate to ex­pe­ri­ence a warm feel­ing, when there is so much around us to feel ag­gra­vated by. We make rods for our own backs, balls and chains for our an­kles. Yet even while we are cre­at­ing these, we are con­vinced that some­one else has brought them into be­ing. Give yourself per­mis­sion to feel okay. This week can bring the suc­cess you de­serve into your life. Call 1902 222 500.

VIRGO AUG 24–SEP 23 A sit­u­a­tion is “less than ideal”. What’s so bad about that? This is Planet Earth, where things have been messy ever since that un­for­tu­nate in­ci­dent with the ap­ple and the ser­pent. It doesn’t mat­ter where you go or what you do, there will al­ways be a piece miss­ing from the jig­saw. A per­fect par­adise may ex­ist else­where in this in­fi­nite cos­mos but here on this big blue ball of rock, if you want to feel good about what’s hap­pen­ing in your emo­tional life, you’ve only got one op­tion. You must learn to love re­al­ity, warts and all. There are in­sights and rev­e­la­tions in store for you. Call 1902 222 500.

LI­BRA SEP 24–OCT 23

In In­dia, clas­si­cal mu­si­cians are trained to hear and re­spect si­lence. The first thing you do, when you play a note, is recog­nise the “space” that you are now fill­ing with the sound of your in­stru­ment. This weekend, it may be good to ap­ply this idea. Look at how things are, not at how you’d like them to be. Tem­per your com­ments, shape your re­marks so that they sit as well as pos­si­ble with the views that are al­ready be­ing ex­pressed. First, get the at­ten­tion of your au­di­ence. Then get them dancing to your tune. You can work magic in your world this week. Call 1902 222 500.

SCOR­PIO OCT 24–NOV 22

Af­ter re­cent emo­tional up­heaval, you want to slow down, calm down, re­cover your poise, re­store your equi­lib­rium and re­turn to a state of el­e­gant in­dif­fer­ence. For now, that’s not an op­tion. You’ve just got to keep run­ning around, hon­our­ing prom­ises, at­tain­ing ob­jec­tives and at­tempt­ing to beat the clock. That’s par­tic­u­larly un­wise. Even if you can man­age to beat the clock for a while, sooner or later the clock will beat you. It’s just a mat­ter of time. And time, in truth, does not mat­ter as much as you now fear it does. You can al­ter what you want and make it work. Call 1902 222 500.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS NOV 23–DEC 21

Look out, there’s a small in­sect on the floor just be­hind you. Let’s ig­nore it shall we, while we have your fore­cast. No, re­ally, do turn back round and keep read­ing. You can’t see it be­cause it has just crawled out of sight. Any­way, it is ir­rel­e­vant. It is not go­ing to bite you. It can­not harm you, so let us think no more of it. We have a zo­diac pre­dic­tion to get on with. Okay. Your emo­tional life is go­ing to be – oh look, there it is again. I think, by now, that I have made my point. Be care­ful about what you al­low yourself to fo­cus on. There is fun in the stars for you this week. Call 1902 222 500.

CAPRI­CORN DEC 22–JAN 20

You don’t want to up­set some­one. Nor, in tread­ing too lightly around their sen­si­tiv­i­ties and mak­ing too many sac­ri­fices on their be­half, do you want to up­set yourself. Life’s great bal­anc­ing act poses us all a spe­cial chal­lenge here. Where and why are you set­tling for less than you should? Are you be­ing no­ble or ner­vous? Yes, I know who I’m speak­ing to. You are brave. Fa­mously brave. But there is still a sug­ges­tion that some­where in your life now, you are be­ing led by fear in­stead of in­spi­ra­tion. Change that around. If you need some in­spi­ra­tion, this is the week for you. Call 1902 222 500.

AQUAR­IUS JAN 21–FEB 19

How can you tell when you have fallen un­der a spell? You can’t. The mo­ment you recog­nise the in­flu­ence you are un­der, you are no longer un­der its in­flu­ence – or at least, not to any­where near the same ex­tent. It is now as if you are fi­nally start­ing to see through an il­lu­sion. The world will soon start to look rather dra­mat­i­cally dif­fer­ent. There’s no dan­ger of go­ing back to how things were and no need to worry about how they got to be that way. It’s just im­por­tant now to wake up and em­brace a new re­al­ity in your emo­tional life. You can work magic in your world this week. Call 1902 222 500.

PISCES FEB 20–MAR 20 Vanilla. Choco­late. Straw­berry. Are these the only flavours? Are there no other temptation­s for our taste buds? Why then, do so many of us stick to tried and tested op­tions? What’s wrong with be­ing more ad­ven­tur­ous? Some ex­pe­ri­ences take a bit of get­ting used to, but that only makes them all the more plea­sur­able. You are now deal­ing with some­thing that looks as if it could pose a prob­lem. Learn to like what­ever is now chal­leng­ing you. It could yet bring sat­is­fac­tion. In­sights are avail­able to you this week. Call 1902 222 500.
