“Do as I say, not as I do” best en­cap­su­lates my par­ent­ing style. Thus, my son is con­vinced that broc­coli comes with most meals. If he only knew how I avoid it when not on “Daddy duty”! As newly Pis­cean Mer­cury links with Saturn to­day, it un­der­lines the im­por­tance of keep­ing prom­ises. But, there’s still enough free­dom to ex­plore and be in­no­va­tive in our ex­pres­sion of our in­di­vid­ual ways of deal­ing with “the truth”. If we stick to the spirit of agree­ments, we can find imag­i­na­tive ways to make them work.

ARIES MAR 21–APR 20 As we move to­wards Valen­tine’s Day and your ruler Mars’ change of signs, the im­pos­si­ble may well be­come pos­si­ble. So to­day, why not try be­liev­ing in how things “could be”? Be­lief is pow­er­ful. It can make a huge dif­fer­ence to how we ap­proach chal­leng­ing sit­u­a­tions. It could be all you need in or­der to turn a dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tion into a suc­cess. Doubt and de­spair are just neg­a­tive be­liefs that serve only to close doors on op­por­tu­ni­ties. Real pos­i­tive de­vel­op­ments are pos­si­ble, as long as you believe in them now. Roses are red, violets are blue, for a ro­mance pre­dic­tion just for you, call 1902 222 500.

TAURUS APR 21 – MAY 21 PR gu­rus spend bil­lions per­suad­ing us that we ab­so­lutely must have what­ever prod­uct they hap­pen to be sell­ing on that par­tic­u­lar day. No mat­ter if we can get it cheaper, or in a bet­ter qual­ity else­where. It’s the brand we’re pay­ing for – the pres­tige, the sta­tus, the rep­u­ta­tion. With silly things like that, it’s up to us if we want to cave in to the pres­sure. What’s less okay, is when we take on opin­ions and per­spec­tives sim­ply be­cause we’ve been told to. Pay at­ten­tion to how you see the world to­day. Roses are red, violets are blue, for a ro­mance pre­dic­tion just for you, call 1902 222 500.

GEMINI MAY 22–JUN 22 Re­cently, things have moved very quickly in­deed. The uni­verse has en­sured that you’ve fixed, con­cluded, re­solved and com­part­men­talised as much as pos­si­ble be­fore the time comes to con­sol­i­date. Where you see an op­por­tu­nity to make al­liances, draw con­clu­sions or strike a deal, take it. Don’t worry about be­ing greedy. You’ve got an in­ter­est­ing jour­ney ahead and, whilst the des­ti­na­tion will make it worth­while, you need to be fully stocked be­fore you be­gin. Ev­ery­thing you need is wing­ing its way to you. Roses are red, violets are blue, for a ro­mance pre­dic­tion just for you, call 1902 222 500.

CAN­CER JUN 23–JUL 23 Some folk think of them­selves as in­fal­li­ble. Un­able to cope with the idea of fail­ure, they blame oth­ers when things don’t go to plan and fail to learn from the ex­pe­ri­ence. Other peo­ple swing to the op­po­site ex­treme and be­rate them­selves for mi­nor, un­avoid­able lapses of judg­ment. Even though you did your best, you seem to be giv­ing your­self a hard time about a re­cent sit­u­a­tion that hasn’t worked as you’d hoped. Take to­day’s chance to move on. Roses are red, violets are blue, for a ro­mance pre­dic­tion just for you, call 1902 222 500.

LEO JUL 24–AUG 23 The ex­pres­sion “Na­ture ab­hors a vac­uum” goes back to An­cient Greece and the philoso­pher Aris­to­tle. In many ways, things haven’t changed a lot since then. Ev­ery space on planet Earth is filled with some­thing. Ev­ery need will (even­tu­ally) be met. It’s just that things don’t al­ways hap­pen when we want them to. And we want the ab­sences re­placed by some­thing NOW! But, the right kind of noth­ing is worth more than the wrong kind of some­thing. Clear a space, then wait to see what fills it. Roses are red, violets are blue, for a ro­mance pre­dic­tion just for you, call 1902 222 500.

VIRGO AUG 24–SEP 23 The rea­son that peo­ple are drawn to talk­ing to you is be­cause you lis­ten. You prob­a­bly don’t even know that you do it be­cause it’s such a nat­u­ral skill. But, lis­ten­ing leads to em­pa­thy and gives you the in­sight to care­fully ask things that other peo­ple dare not ar­tic­u­late. In the build up to Valen­tine’s Day, as Mer­cury set­tles into your op­po­site sign, you’ll at­tract peo­ple who value the unique con­tri­bu­tion you make. Con­serve your en­ergy and give it to those who ap­pre­ci­ate you. Roses are red, violets are blue, for a ro­mance pre­dic­tion just for you, call 1902 222 500.

LIBRA SEP 24–OCT 23 Should you take some­one at their word to­day? Or should you, rather, be cau­tious, in case the in­tu­itive alarm bells which are ring­ing prove to be warn­ings of a gen­uine is­sue? In a per­fect world, you’d do both. Don’t let your sus­pi­cions get the bet­ter of you, but keep a watch­ful eye open for the slight­est sug­ges­tion of trou­ble. The true story is that you have a rare and spe­cial chance to spend time do­ing some­thing you love to­day. Don’t let any­one or any­thing take that away from you. Roses are red, violets are blue, for a ro­mance pre­dic­tion just for you, call 1902 222 500.

SCORPIO OCT 24–NOV 22 The most ex­cit­ing films, as my son would tell you, al­ways in­volve a su­per­hero bat­tling against im­pos­si­ble odds. Mean­while, the bad­dies fo­cus all their en­ergy on pre­vent­ing the he­roes from mak­ing progress. It’s not only the di­rec­tors of child-friendly films who un­der­stand that the best end­ings are the ones in which the good even­tu­ally de­stroys the bad. Does your life repli­cate this sto­ry­line? Af­ter a long and tir­ing bat­tle, will luck even­tu­ally pre­vail? The signs are clear. Suc­cess is in sight. Roses are red, violets are blue, for a ro­mance pre­dic­tion just for you, call 1902 222 500.

SAGITTARIUS NOV 23–DEC 21 You’re ap­proach­ing a ma­jor cross­roads that de­mands a big change and a sig­nif­i­cant com­mit­ment. You’ve been turn­ing it over and over in your mind for some time now. But, wait. Haven’t you al­ready made your mind up? Hasn’t the deal been sealed? The cos­mos sug­gests that you’ve been hold­ing your fi­nal hand for some time now. There are no more an­swers to be sought af­ter. All you need do is re­alise the power of knowl­edge you hold. Once you’ve done that, a source of stress will melt away. Roses are red, violets are blue, for a ro­mance pre­dic­tion just for you, call 1902 222 500.

CAPRICORN DEC 22–JAN 20 Do you like what you see be­fore you? If the an­swer is yes, then, if you keep fo­cused on what’s ahead, you’ll find more and more to ap­pre­ci­ate. If, on the other hand, you’re not happy with what you see, it’s be­cause there’s some­thing you’re over­look­ing. It’s easy to un­der­stand why you’re hav­ing such a strong re­ac­tion to a de­vel­op­ment. Yet, you’re here for a rea­son. You haven’t made a mis­take. This is all part of a valid and valu­able process which is lead­ing to greater strength and suc­cess. Roses are red, violets are blue, for a ro­mance pre­dic­tion just for you, call 1902 222 500.

AQUARIUS JAN 21–FEB 19 Some­times, we need to step back and reeval­u­ate. Some­times, we end up do­ing what we’re do­ing just be­cause it’s what we do. We be­come so em­bed­ded in estab­lished rou­tines that it rarely en­ters our heads to ques­tion the pat­terns and pro­cesses of our daily lives. That’s fine when we find plea­sure in our ac­tions, but not so fine if they’re fail­ing to bring hap­pi­ness or joy. As we move to­wards Valen­tine’s Day, and the chance to re­di­rect your en­ergy, it’s worth con­sid­er­ing what, or whom, you’d like to in­vest in. Roses are red, violets are blue, for a ro­mance pre­dic­tion just for you, call 1902 222 500.

PISCES FEB 20–MAR 20 Some as­trologers in­clude the names of fa­mous peo­ple when they write their horo­scopes. Per­son­ally, this isn’t my style. I’ve re­alised that we don’t al­ways as­pire to be like the peo­ple with whom we share char­ac­ter­is­tics. Nor do we like it when it’s sug­gested that we have things in com­mon with folk we don’t par­tic­u­larly like. As Mer­cury set­tles into your sign, al­though some Pis­ceans have the po­ten­tial to do rather well, you can do bet­ter than that. Just en­sure you up­hold your stan­dards, rather than any­one else’s. Roses are red, violets are blue, for a ro­mance pre­dic­tion just for you, call 1902 222 500.
