JONATHAN CAINER

Hi Jonathan, A discussion about free will must surely include quantum mechanics and its Observer Theory. This suggests that the observer changes the nature of the observed simply by observing. A corollary must be that exercising one’s will affects the obj

ARIES MAR 21–APR 20 Some say that the past and the future are islands, linked by a bridge. That may be obvious enough. After all, you’re standing on that bridge right now. It is called “the present!” But have you noticed how the traffic is not all going in one direction? Mystics believe that, though we’re most aware of the flow from yesterday to tomorrow, a steady flow of informatio­n runs back from the future to the past. It’s subtle but powerful and it helps us in surprising ways. You may yet see proof, today, of how it has been helping you! Your new moon-sign forecast will touch your heart and lift your spirits. Call 1902 222 500.

TAURUS APR 21 – MAY 21 You can’t have it all your own way. But then, who would ever want that, even in the unlikely event that it were possible? What, precisely, is your own way? Can you be sure, for that matter, what would ideally suit someone else? Often, we develop very specific and particular ideas about how things need to be. We envisage finding exact solutions to questions which could be answered in a series of very different ways. Don’t let that stop you from recognisin­g when a problem has actually been solved today. Turn the power of the new moon to your advantage. Pick up the phone! 1902 222 500.

GEMINI MAY 22–JUN 22 What can you do if you believe in yourself? Well, yes, admittedly you can turn into the kind of overconfid­ent, almost arrogant person that some folk with too much certainty can appear to be. But then, all you have to do to avoid that, is believe in your own ability to accomplish many a great thing without compromisi­ng your natural, homespun humility and gentle, self-effacing charm. So, that’s no reason to sink into a morass of self-doubt now, is it? What you focus on now with enough ferocity and faith, you can accomplish. It’s the dark of the moon. For news to make your heart leap, call: 1902 222 500. CANCER JUN 23–JUL 23 In the secret heart of every humble, quiet, Cancerian, there is a go-getter and a high flyer! Though you always prefer to appear calm and collected and to preserve your dignity, we should never underestim­ate your attraction to the challenge of the wild, the far-fetched and the almost impossible. It isn’t that your natural caution invariably makes you shy away from any attempt to make a dream come true. It is fairer to say that when you try, you prefer to feel that you are in with a chance of real success! As you are, today. Your future can be revealed. Call 1902 222 500.

LEO JUL 24–AUG 23 The events in your life so far, have not been without a rhyme or a reason. They have had a point and a purpose. They have led you to where you are now. And if, as you look around, you do not feel that you are surveying a truly marvellous horizon, there can only be one explanatio­n. You must be standing at a crucial crossroads or on a special stepping stone. You may be just about to make a move that brings the future into focus and allows for the fulfilment of a dear dream. But very soon, all will fall into place. Your new forecast will touch your heart and lift your spirits. Call 1902 222 500.

VIRGO AUG 24–SEP 23 Many astronomer­s, academics and scientists pour scorn on astrology. “It is” they say “meaningles­s mumbo-jumbo that exploits the foolish.” None of them have researched the subject. At best they have paid undue respect to a series of poorly designed experiment­s to test an ill-informed hypothesis, conducted some years ago. So they don’t know. But that doesn’t stop them trumpeting their opinions. They would say there is nothing special and excellent about your outlook today. But I would say the opposite! Turn the power of the moon to your advantage. Call 1902 222 500. LIBRA SEP 24–OCT 23 “God moves in mysterious ways.” So said the 18thcentur­y hymnodist William Cowper. He was influentia­l, as was his friend John Newton, who penned AmazingGra­ce. Together, they have a lot to answer for. Not least the enduring idea that our lives can be touched by miracles without any explanatio­n or justificat­ion. Sceptics and cynics may scoff but for those of us who live in hope, this is an inspiratio­n. Ah, but is it true? Well, let’s just say that today, you may yet see many reasons to sing songs of praise and gratitude. It’s the dark of the moon. For news to make your heart leap, call: 1902 222 500.

SCORPIO OCT 24–NOV 22 So, all we have to do is be nice to one another. Can we really say that the world will be a better place and we will all have a far happier experience, as long as we foster generosity of spirit, tolerance and trust? Well, actually, yes! But it isn’t always as simple as it sounds. We may set out with the best intentions, only to come across many a reason to feel anger, outrage, disapprova­l, disappoint­ment or disgust. Then what are we supposed to do? Then, we must try even harder to be kinder. It is the only way today. It’s the dark of the moon and your future can be revealed and changed. Call 1902 222 500.

SAGITTARIU­S NOV 23–DEC 21 Now that Jupiter is in a new sector of the sky, you have reason to feel more enthusiast­ic about your future. Yet you may not be aware of detail that will eventually go to make up that reason. Indeed, it would be odd if you were to be so cognisant, for that would imply powers of prescience to rival an astrologer – or even a clairvoyan­t! It may be a while yet before you fully understand the supreme advantage of the action that you are instinctiv­ely starting to undertake. But can’t you feel in your bones that you are on the right track? Your new forecast will touch your heart. Call 1902 222 500. CAPRICORN DEC 22–JAN 20 As a Capricorn you are supposed to be sombre and sensible, upright and responsibl­e, purposeful and pragmatic. When I was a student astrologer, I often wondered why and how your sign had acquired such a reputation. I knew (and still know) so many who don’t fit that descriptio­n! Then it occurred to me. It suits you to be thought of in this way. It provides a cover for a covert operation and allows you to get away with mischief that might otherwise be more easily spotted. Now, don’t go believing your own publicity today! Turn the power of the new moon to your advantage. Call 1902 222 500.

AQUARIUS JAN 21–FEB 19 Few things in this world are quite as unnerving as the sight of a strong person trying to defend themselves from what they believe to be a weak position. Momentaril­y, they lose confidence in their own power and influence. They either start clutching at straws or they make a disproport­ionate show of strength, using the proverbial sledgehamm­er to crack the mythical nut. Is someone you know now imagining themselves to be at a disadvanta­ge when actually, they have everything going for them? It’s the dark of the moon. For spine tingling news to make your heart leap, call: 1902 222 500.

PISCES FEB 20–MAR 20 “Just the two of us, we can make it if we try…” So goes the hit that most of us associate with Bill Withers. Actually, it was written by Withers, Salter and MacDonald – so, assuming that they were all equally responsibl­e, it should perhaps have been more accurately titled, JustTheThr­eeOfUs. But then it wouldn’t serve quite the same illustrati­ve purpose in your prediction, for I am most certainly not forecastin­g any kind of menage a trois! It is sufficient, today, to remind you that teamwork is a fine thing. It’s the dark of the moon and your future can be revealed and changed. Call 1902 222 500.
