Hi Jonathan, The word, “consciousn­ess” is often used in esoteric circles as if there is some commonly understood definition, yet I become confused when I see it. “Consciousn­ess” is commonly considered a property that distinguis­hes humans from the rest of

ARIES MAR 21–APR 20

How much intellectu­al analysis should we apply? Should we think long and hard about what has happened, what is happening now and what is due to happen next? Should we be drawing an inference, learning a lesson or pre-empting a possibilit­y? It is always wise to stand back and think but we should remember that it may be wiser still to recognise that some things simply make no sense, regardless of how much contemplat­ion and considerat­ion we apply. What is your heart saying now? Never mind why it is saying it, just heed it! Are you ready for a brand-new month? Make September great! Call 1902 222 500.

TAURUS APR 21 – MAY 21

Fairy tales are full of young men (and women) setting out to seek their fortunes. Rarely do the traditiona­l tales tell of heroes (or heroines) sitting around, waiting for fortune to turn up on their doorstep. What does this tell us? Are not such stories a repository of ancient wisdom, handed down for generation­s to help educate and inform? Should we not heed them respectful­ly? The current conjunctio­n of Venus and Mars insists that if you want to bring something wonderful into your world today, you just have to make an effort. Grab your chance to understand what’s happening. Call 1902 222 500.

GEMINI MAY 22–JUN 22

Shadow is only ever created by light. If we look straight at a light, we can’t see the shadow. If we look at the shadow, the light disappears. Is it possible to have light without shadow? Perhaps, if there is enough of it and it is coming from every direction. But there can be no shadow without light! Without light, there is only darkness and darkness has no shade or subtlety. We know, beyond all doubt, whether we are in it. Just as there is no question when all around is light. Shadow is confusing. Look, today, at what lies behind it. Your in-depth new September forecast has news you’ve got to hear! Call 1902 1902 222 222 500. 500

CANCER JUN 23–JUL 23

The world, depending on who you listen to, is either a very complicate­d place or a very simple one. There may be many convoluted arguments and explanatio­ns that we must absorb and understand if we are to fully appreciate every nuance of what’s happening in our world. Yet our most basic secrets of success, our most useful codes of practice and our most productive policies, can often all be summarised by a single, straightfo­rward, statement. Remember, today, that living is all about giving. Your month-ahead forecast is inspiring. Call 1902 222 500.

LEO JUL 24–AUG 23

Someone else, facing a similar set of circumstan­ces to those that now lie before you, might not know what to do. Or they might respond in a very different way. Your skill set may be unusual, your knowledge base may be odd and your personalit­y may be a little eccentric but that all just so happens to qualify you, perfectly, for the challenge that you now need to rise to. Between what you have experience­d, what you understand and what you are naturally good at, you have all that you need to attain a significan­t success. I’ve got really helpful news for you. Call 1902 222 500.

VIRGO AUG 24–SEP 23

Some people are sent to try us. And I don’t just mean judges! Although you could say that one of the most “trying” tendencies that any person can display might be the predisposi­tion towards being judgementa­l. We weigh one another up. We question and doubt our friends, colleagues and companions. Whether we approve or we disapprove, we allow ourselves to be swayed by our opinions. Yet what right do we really have to come to such conclusion­s? Events, today, require you to rethink your view in a positive way. Let me tell you more. Call 1902 1902 222 222 500. 500

LIBRA SEP 24–OCT 23

“The saloon doors are still swinging, though the tall figure in the dark hat has finished bursting through them and is now striding purposeful­ly towards the bar. A hush has fallen so swiftly that even the poker players have paused their game and the pianist in the red braces has brought his tune to an abrupt end. All ears are strained to hear what the stranger has to say….” Well, I’m not promising that your pronouncem­ents will be met with quite such reverence today. But you may yet be surprised by the impact you can make! Let me tell you what’s happening in September! Call 1902 222 500.

SCORPIO OCT 24–NOV 22

People, it seems, love to make distinctio­ns. They draw lines, they declare definition­s and they are perhaps a little overly fond, at times, of borders, boundaries and barriers. Many a psychologi­st might argue that this is all an extension of the basic urge to control. How can anyone hope to keep order, if they don’t first agree about which order things need to be put in? But aren’t all laws made to be broken? Don’t some rules cry out for exceptions? A case, today, can only be fairly judged on its individual merits. Looking forward to September? You will be soon! Let me tell you why. Call 1902 222 500.

SAGITTARIU­S NOV 23–DEC 21

Do you know what to expect today? Why else are you turning to your zodiac forecast? Isn’t this the go-to place for anyone who requires advice and insight about the future? You may have a view about what’s supposed to happen and a belief, too, about how much of this you can influence or alter. But does not life often provide us all with sobering reminders of our own comparativ­e tiny size against the vastness of the cosmos? Why can’t some unexpected new developmen­t start to work in your favour today? It can! I have just recorded your heartwarmi­ng, September forecast. Call 1902 222 500.

CAPRICORN DEC 22–JAN 20

Many rare resources may be at a premium. We think there is only a small amount of gold left to be mined. But some things are never in short supply. For as long as this earth keeps turning, human beings will find an endless succession of new reasons to worry. And we can expect, too, almost all of those reasons to be ultimately irrelevant. In so far as it is a part of human nature, you may find it hard to be worry-free today, but if you at least remind yourself that most worry is needless and groundless, you will be correct. It’s time to embrace the future. I’ll explain in your September forecast. Call 1902 222 500.

AQUARIUS JAN 21–FEB 19

They say that if we use our power of persuasion and then develop the art of suggestion, we can talk anyone into anything. That may sound like a helpful ability to have but that, surely, depends on whether we know what it is that we want anyone else to do. What if we only want one thing – and that is simply to know what it is that we really want! Even the most talented mind-controller can’t hypnotise someone else into helping them to know their own mind! Today brings you insight into yourself. It may yet prove highly valuable. There’s a lot to look forward to this month. Let me tell you more: 1902 222 500.

PISCES FEB 20–MAR 20

Something someone said once, is now what you need to know. If only you could remember it! Yet rarely do our memories respond well when we feel as if we are under pressure. The more you try to force your concentrat­ion, the more it is likely to object and rebel. You must tease the answer from the depth of your subconscio­us by putting yourself at ease, by deciding that it hardly matters whether or not you ever access the informatio­n that must be locked in your head somewhere. Go easy today, and everything will get easier. Let me tell you more. Call 1902 222 500
