This full moon in the sign of Sagittariu­s may prove exceptiona­lly powerful. The sun is currently in a kind of tight sandwich between Mercury and Mars. All three are in Gemini, with the communicat­ion planet just a little behind the sun, and Mars ahead of i

ARIES MAR 21–APR 20

None of us are perfect. Even those with the biggest egos and the highest sense of self-worth are willing to concede that there may be some small way in which they might improve themselves, if only they were to set their minds to this. Some of us imagine ourselves to be less perfect than we are. We do ourselves down when we ought to be bigging ourselves up. Humility and modesty, in small doses, are assets. But not when taken to extremes. Today, you have more reasons to believe in yourself than you think you have. Looking forward to June? You will be soon! Let me tell you why. Call 1902 222 500.

TAURUS APR 21 – MAY 21

They say there are more people alive now, than have ever lived before. Others question how they arrived at this figure but let us give it the benefit of the doubt. What might it say about heaven or “the other world” or wherever it is that we all were before we came here? Is it really such an unsatisfac­tory place to be that human existence is preferable for all its faults and frustratio­ns? Lately, you have felt unsure about how much you are truly enjoying life. You may yet soon start to feel as if you are truly glad to be here. I have just recorded your light-shedding, heartwarmi­ng, June forecast. Call 1902 222 500.

GEMINI MAY 22–JUN 22

There is another hairpin bend ahead. But why should that worry you? You got safely round the last one, didn’t you? It is never, actually, the sharpness of the corner that creates the tension and the exhilarati­on. It is the speed at which that turn is made. If taken slowly enough, it loses all of its challengin­g capacity to terrify. By analogy, you don’t have to invest as much nervous energy as you may think into the situation that you currently face. Relax and allow yourself to experience less urgency and more optimism. It’s time to embrace the future. I explain how in your June forecast. Call 1902 222 500.

CANCER JUN 23–JUL 23

There is a cause that is dear to your heart. A commitment you are keen to keep up. It seems somehow, to be more important than anything else in your life right now. That is laudable, admirable yet potentiall­y also a little shortsight­ed. If you don’t look after yourself, how can you properly look after anyone or anything else? Might the full moon now be making you overly conscious of a responsibi­lity and unnecessar­ily anxious about an obligation? You can afford to go a little easier on yourself today. There’s a lot to look forward to in June. Call 1902 222 500.

LEO JUL 24–AUG 23

“Wherever I lay my hat, that’s my home.” So goes the old Marvin Gaye song. Many have since adopted it as a philosophy that informs a lifestyle. But what if you haven’t got a hat? Or what if, as so many of us find ourselves obliged to do in this busy modern world, you have to wear several hats and keep switching between them. Does more than one hat entitle you to more than one home? The full moon is now raising questions about matters of commitment. You are making important choices now. When you hear your June forecast everything will change for the better. Call 1902 222 500.

VIRGO AUG 24–SEP 23

You are a crusader for justice today; a voice of fairness and reason in a world that seems to be populated by devotees of dogma and servants of harsh, blind, belief. You are amazed by the lack of subtlety and sensitivit­y that some people seem to be showing. You may not have endless powers of persuasion but you know you must speak up and bring at least a part of this crazy world to something more reminiscen­t of its senses. To your surprise, you are about to make more of a successful impact than you expect. I have great news for you about June. Call 1902 222 500.

LIBRA SEP 24–OCT 23

These days, risk assessment­s are all the rage. No venture can be properly planned without someone first writing a report listing how all the ways in which things could go wrong have been carefully considered. Of course, such exercises create a kind of false confidence. Either the organisers assume that they have covered all bases, and can thus relax, or they become so apprehensi­ve that their nervousnes­s invites eventual mishap. At issue today, is not “what you expect to go awry” but what you don’t expect! Grab your chance to understand what’s happening. Call 1902 222 500.

SCORPIO OCT 24–NOV 22

Mindfulnes­s is the latest fashion in the realm of spiritual self-awareness. To old-timers, like myself, this is mildly amusing. There was once a time when “the mind” was considered the enemy of any attempt to attain a state of elevated consciousn­ess. Those who sought enlightenm­ent were encouraged not to try to “control” their thoughts but rather, to rise above them. I can’t advise you in all conscience to be mindful today. But I can strongly advise you not to mind quite so much if something seems less than ideal. Your in-depth new June forecast has news you’ve got to hear! Call 1902 222 500.

SAGITTARIU­S NOV 23–DEC 21

Things could go wrong. They do sometimes, for some people. So why not for you, today? The full moon in your sign is putting you in a sensitive mood. You are keenly conscious of the many precarious­ly balanced arrangemen­ts and plans that might all start to fall apart with even just one stray gust of unfavourab­le wind. But it is one thing to be aware of a possibilit­y and another to be dealing with an absolute reality. The very fact that you are now gently keeping a wary eye out for possible trouble is, in itself, reassuranc­e. You’ll find your month-ahead forecast inspiring. Call 1902 222 500.

CAPRICORN DEC 22–JAN 20

On a dull day, when the sun breaks through cloud, nothing actually moves but it all alters under that different light. When situations seem gloomy and arrangemen­ts appear oppressive, we can soon feel as if we are inextricab­ly associated with an undesirabl­e situation. We may plan all manner of escape routes. Yet all we really need is to see what’s happening in a different light and we may decide we are perfectly happy where we already are. The full moon suggests just such a revelation for you today. In your brand new June forecast, I’ve got really helpful news for you. Call 1902 222 500.

AQUARIUS JAN 21–FEB 19

Truly clever people know that there is more to life than being clever. They understand that witticisms, no matter how rapidly phrased and deftly delivered, are only superficia­l, trivial demonstrat­ions of a mind that is alert and awake. Heartfelt remarks are rarely quite so smart and funny but they count for far more. They convey something of infinitely greater value. Today brings the opportunit­y for an honest exchange. In this, there will be neither losers nor winners, simply equals who acknowledg­e each other’s importance. The planets are on your side in June. Let me tell you more. Call 1902 222 500.

PISCES FEB 20–MAR 20

If there is resistance, it can be overcome. If there is reluctance, it can be replaced by enthusiasm. If there is resentment, it can be turned into commitment. So many of our moods are dependent upon attitudes and if we are only willing to attempt a change in the way we see a situation, we can sometimes make a magnificen­t difference. Look, today, at a situation that often seems to fill you with a strange mixture of frustratio­n and exasperati­on. What really lies at the heart of this? An obstacle which can surely be overcome. Want to hear great news? Let me tell me what’s happening in June! Call 1902 222 500.
