Dear Jonathan, You recently shared a letter from a lovelorn Capricorn. I’m a Capricorn who also fell head over heels for a Sagittariu­s. He told me he loved me too. We went along together happily enough for three years until one day he said he wanted to live on the other side of the world and I wasn’t invited. I later met a Virgo. We have been happily married for 25 years. My advice? When your Sagittaria­n ex-boyfriend tells you he likes your Instagram and he sends smiley faces, he’s saying he’s your friend and that’s it.

ARIES MAR 21–APR 20 You may think that a grasp of reality, no matter how firm, can only be of limited value if the reality in question is challengin­g or disturbing. Most of us, if we ever face such circumstan­ces, wish things could be different. We may even wish so hard that we turn those wishes into dreams. Then we let ourselves just float away with those dreams. Yet to truly understand a reality, be it pleasant or unpleasant, is to gain a kind of power over it. If there is something you dislike now, you can see a way to change it. Call me if you are looking to make some positive changes: 1902 222 500.

TAURUS APR 21 – MAY 21 We all have free will. An endless supply was issued to us at birth. We weren’t even given any choice in the matter! Perhaps that’s why some of us, belatedly, struggle to redress what they inwardly, unconsciou­sly perceive as an imbalance, by striving so hard to argue that they have no free will and are thus entirely victims of various remote deities and their peculiar whims. Do you secretly fear that there is little or nothing you can do to change a particular situation today? You have far more power over it than you think. Great news if you are looking for inspiratio­n and magic. Call 1902 222 500.

GEMINI MAY 22–JUN 22 Perhaps one reason why humanity can’t turn back time is because people are so reluctant to rewrite history. When, for example, someone says something, others take them seriously. “Oh,” we say, “they said that. They must mean it. That must be their deepest and strongest opinion.” But don’t we all from time to time say things we regret or do things we wish we hadn’t done? If others didn’t have such good memories, we might move on from those a little faster! Don’t let your own memory be your enemy today. One quick call will cost less than coffee and a cake. Call 1902 222 500.

CANCER JUN 23–JUL 23 We are not supposed to put new shoes on the table. This, say the superstiti­ous, invites bad luck. But where laws of the land are subjected in courts to tests of definition, psychic assertions remain unchalleng­ed. How new do the shoes have to be? New from the factory? From the importer? The retailer? And what do we mean by a table? How about a desk or a workbench? Do you now secretly fear having to pay a price for transgress­ing some cosmic code? It just so happens that you are safe from all this today. Don’t worry about the future. Call me for some inspiring news on 1902 222 500.

LEO JUL 24–AUG 23 We generally tend to define the present by the past. Only if we are keenly ambitious and highly motivated do we see ourselves as being shaped by the future. If we are not careful, we may be limiting our own potential. For our belief about what the future may be able to bring us is in turn strongly influenced by whatever experience­s we can remember. Lately, as you have been scanning the horizon, you have started to develop some rather gloomy expectatio­ns. Coming events should replace these with happier hopes. The future is waiting for you. Call 1902 222 500.

VIRGO AUG 24–SEP 23 “The best things happen while you’re dancing.” So Irving Berlin insisted in his seminal song, and who are we to argue with such a legendary authority? We might stretch a point, extend an idea and make a traditiona­l assumption. Even those who can’t dance, can smile and relax into the rhythm of some comforting melody. Whilst this might be viewed by some as a frivolous indulgence, the fact remains that only by letting yourself be flippant today will you see the perfect way to flip fortune in your favour. There are insights and revelation­s in store for you. Call 1902 222 500.

LIBRA SEP 24–OCT 23 Eastern mystics and New Age gurus believe that there is a world within each one of us, as vast, eternal and infinite as the external physical world. Just as outer space goes endlessly on, so does inner space. By the very fact that we exist at the border of two such amazing realms, we are therefore magical beings with magical powers. As Venus has now changed direction, you are becoming extraordin­arily aware of this truth. You can yet use it to your advantage if you reach sincerely for the resource you most need. You can work magic in your world this week. Find out how by calling 1902 222 500.

SCORPIO OCT 24–NOV 22 How will you change the world? Will you invent something? Will you pioneer some important new process? Will you communicat­e an idea whose time has come? Or will you simply, silently, set a fine example? Just by inspiring others to do their best, to rise above trials and tribulatio­ns, to value human emotion and sensitivit­y more, perhaps, than political or legal principle, you can make an enormous difference. You have always been something of a law unto yourself. Today, it is somehow as if that law is being ratified. You can alter what you want and make it work for you. Call 1902 222 500.

SAGITTARIU­S NOV 23–DEC 21 Are all angelic beings on the side of right? Don’t some at least have the unenviable task of discerning the difference between good and bad, appropriat­e and inappropri­ate? Such cosmic questions can’t always be answered by following theory or pursuing principles. Some situations must be experience­d to be understood. Judgements are for the judgementa­l and the more highly evolved we get, the less important our opinions become. What you don’t know, today, is oddly almost as important as what you do. There is magic in the stars for you this week. Call me on 1902 222 500.

CAPRICORN DEC 22–JAN 20 Are you entitled to have faith in yourself? Or don’t they say that only the arrogant put themselves on a pedestal? Even if they do say such a thing, we have to ask who they are, why they say it and whether there may be exceptiona­l circumstan­ces that negate the universali­ty of such remarks. Perhaps you can’t give yourself a pat on the back because your arm won’t bend round far enough. But you deserve one, nonetheles­s. Others are now very grateful for what you have done lately. Soon you will have much to be glad of too. If you need some inspiratio­n, this is the week for you! Call 1902 222 500.

AQUARIUS JAN 21–FEB 19 Have you ever heard the phrase, “that’s good enough for jazz”? It suggests that jazz music doesn’t really need to be exactly precise. A musical question can have one of several equally acceptable answers. That is true. But the discerning ear of a true aficionado will soon distinguis­h between a masterful improvisat­ion and a few random notes. Someone else today may not see why things need to be a certain way. But you know what you know. And when things are finally right (as they will be), you will know why. The planets say that wonderful changes are possible. Call 1902 222 500.

PISCES FEB 20–MAR 20 Few and far between are this world’s self-declared pessimists. The naysayers and the doom-mongers rarely wear such titles with pride. Instead they announce themselves as “realists”, who are providing an essential correction to the overconfid­ent tone of life’s extreme optimists. Today’s big question involves wondering how seriously to take a particular prophecy of disaster. Someone seems to think that everything has the potential to go wrong. Perhaps so, but it also has the potential to work out wonderfull­y well. Insights are available to you this week. Find out more. Call 1902 222 500.
