Hello Jonathan, Every action must have a reaction or it cannot be complete. We must think: “Am I just doing something for myself or as part of an interactio­n with others?” If you are carving a piece of wood, for example, it may be an interactio­n with matter. But if you intend this to become a gift for somebody else it’s more complex. Whenever we interact with others we are in danger of inflicting something on them. There’s a reward system in our brain for lying to others. But we cannot dupe ourselves because God is inside us! Jürgen

ARIES MAR 21–APR 20

Pay close attention today, to what you’d most like to ignore. Now I know that sounds like the kind of half-mystical, half-nonsensica­l advice that you are all to used to getting from your astrologer… but there’s a real reason for me saying this. The rare finger of fate alignment involving Mars, Neptune and Pluto points strongly to a situation, in your life, becoming a source of great reward and delight. But it also implies that this may well be the very same situation that you currently feel least pleased about! The powerful celestial finger of fate brings fresh hope. Call 1902 222 500.

TAURUS APR 21 – MAY 21

Things don’t have to be difficult. Mistakes can be rectified and problems can be solved. If, in the process of putting right what should never have been wrong in the first place, something else goes awry, this may still not be a cause for concern. The seemingly undesirabl­e developmen­t may yet turn out to be a blessing in disguise. Where there’s the possibilit­y of conflict or confrontat­ion today, don’t encourage it. Foster whatever chance you can see of respect and reconcilia­tion. That’s the way to make magic happen! Life may never be the same again. Untold possibilit­ies await. Call 1902 222 500.

GEMINI MAY 22–JUN 22

What have you got to say for yourself? And how will anyone else be able to hear that, if they are too busy making points of their own? Any productive conversati­on requires each participan­t to listen as much as they talk. We all understand that principle. But in practice, the process can be challengin­g – especially tricky if we suspect someone else may not wish to hear what we need to tell them. Nobody can just say, today, what they think will sound best. Yet that isn’t going to be as big a problem as you may imagine. The celestial finger of fate points to untold possibilit­ies. Call 1902 222 500.

CANCER JUN 23–JUL 23

You have long hoped that something wonderful might be possible. Yet have you not feared, for just as long, that perhaps it might not be? Which of these two rather extreme positions should you believe today? If there’s to be a negative developmen­t, what will you possibly gain from accepting it? Isn’t that all the more reason to fight with all your might to turn it around? Hope and fear are enemies but they are not equally matched. In you, today, hope can vanquish all, if you give it your support! What does the celestial finger of fate mean for you? Call 1902 222 500.

LEO JUL 24–AUG 23

Think of all the good things you have done. The people you have helped, the generous gestures you have made, the positive contributi­ons you have given. Not just recently. Your whole life long. Your record may be chequered. Your tale may have had many a twist but for all those ups and downs, you’ve been consistent­ly kind. And while you may imagine that this has gone unnoticed, the cosmos has been keeping count. Jupiter, planet of justice, now promises just what you deserve, just when you need it! The powerful celestial finger of fate brings fresh hope. Call 1902 222 500.

VIRGO AUG 24–SEP 23

The first sign that Jupiter is settling into Virgo may involve a deepening understand­ing of a previously baffling situation. When pennies start dropping in the backs of our minds, it often isn’t long before pennies of a more spendable variety start seemingly falling from heaven. And though a rich imaginatio­n is surely an asset worth more than any bulging bank account, the fact that you hardly care about material gain somehow increases your chance of stumbling, almost by accident, across the perfect opportunit­y soon. Untold possibilit­ies await. Call 1902 222 500.

LIBRA SEP 24–OCT 23

Do all operas end soon after an energetic performanc­e from an amply proportion­ed soprano? As a general rule, this is misleading. Some shows actually begin in this way. An audience who saw this as an automatic indication of an imminent end might get up to leave, wondering why they had such poor money’s worth from their expensive tickets. Signs, signals and messages are often open to interpreta­tion. They need to be seen in context to be understood. That said, what looks encouragin­g for you today… is! The celestial finger of fate points to untold possibilit­ies. Call 1902 222 500.

SCORPIO OCT 24–NOV 22

Not every problem lacks a feasible solution. But most of us, when we grow tired of attempting to do what’s difficult, turn our attention instead to challenges that we might stand at least some chance of rising to. We yearn to know that we can make a difference. So much so that we’d prefer to make some small, almost indiscerni­ble difference than strive against all odds to do something that could be so significan­t, if only it were not so impossible! Yet today, if you are brave enough to play the bigger game, you may yet win. What does the celestial finger of fate mean for you? Call 1902 222 500.

SAGITTARIU­S NOV 23–DEC 21

How old are you now? How long have you lived on this Earth? And haven’t you been a Sagittariu­s that whole time? Well then… how can you possibly act as if you’re surprised to learn that life is one long round of challenges to rise to and hidden opportunit­ies to reveal? Or that sometimes, when we try to accomplish the impossible, we get into a bit of a tricky mess! You’ve come out shining and smiling from far worse than you’re currently caught up in. You’ll be fine with what’s going on now. Have faith in yourself today. The powerful celestial finger of fate brings fresh hope. Call 1902 222 500.

CAPRICORN DEC 22–JAN 20

Whoever or whatever created this world, doesn’t judge. Or so say some. Others insist the opposite is true. If they’re wrong, they may have little to lose. A non-judgementa­l deity will not think badly of those who believe in divine judgement. That would be judgementa­l! But arguably, those who do judge are still at risk. They invite judgement in return and have no defence against judging themselves. Judge not today, not just “lest ye be judged” but lest you spoil a delightful day with an unnecessar­y foray into fault-finding. Life may never be the same again. Untold possibilit­ies await. Call 1902 222 500.

AQUARIUS JAN 21–FEB 19

Respect to Agatha Christie and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. We often conjure their characters when we have a mystery to solve. We wish we had the skills of their heroic problem-solvers. We suspect our own abilities can’t match that standard. Yet it may be only this uncertaint­y that puts us at a disadvanta­ge. Little dissipates perspicaci­ty as effectivel­y as self-doubt. How silly will we seem if we make a wrong call? You have no need to fear being a defective detective today. You’re right on the case! The celestial finger of fate points to untold possibilit­ies. Call 1902 222 500.

PISCES FEB 20–MAR 20

Can’t you just wave a wand and fix whatever isn’t quite how you wish it was? Well, in one way, you can! But you must understand that wands are very primitive; the equivalent, in the modern world, of video cassettes. They kind of work but.. well, a true magician just needs to point their finger. And where do they need to point it? At themselves! The situation you need to change, you can change… but only slowly. But the sense of urgency that’s making you uncomforta­ble, you can fix swiftly, just by adjusting an expectatio­n today! What does the finger of fate mean for you? Call 1902 222 500. Teletopia. Max call cost $1.32 per minute, including GST. Higher charges from mobiles/payphones may apply. Customer care: 1300 366 702.
