The New Indian Express - - CHENNAI - PETER VI­DAL

13th Oc­to­ber: What is space made of? Once upon a time we thought that the plan­ets moved through a mys­te­ri­ous sub­stance which we called Ether. Then we learnt that space was empty and con­sisted of noth­ing. That’s what I learnt a school! Now we think it’s made of some­thing again, only this time it’s called Dark Mat­ter. We can’t see it, smell it or touch it, but we still think it’s there!

ARIES (Mar 21 - Apr. 20)

Pro­fes­sional Ariens are favoured to­day. Or, rather, they may be un­able to stop work and re­lax! What the stars ac­tu­ally in­di­cate is that you'll be in a mind to pur­sue prac­ti­cal am­bi­tions, but that all other cir­cum­stances in your life have to agree. A dif­fi­cult bal­anc­ing act, I'm sure, but one well within your pow­ers.

TAURUS (Apr. 21 - May 21)

There's a sense that any­thing is pos­si­ble. But, you also know that, if it were, you'd never be al­lowed to get away with it. And that, I sup­pose, is a fa­mil­iar Tau­rean dilemma. Still, you can safely as­sume that the next two weeks are a bet­ter time to con­sol­i­date ev­ery­thing you've achieved so far rather than go­ing off on a new tack.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21)

There seems to be only so much you can do at the mo­ment with­out arous­ing crit­i­cism. To­day, your bright sug­ges­tions are likely to elicit the re­sponse 'so why don't you get on and do it, then?' And, at that point, you'll have to fig­ure out the prac­ti­cal de­tails or for­get the whole idea.

CAN­CER (June 22 - July 23)

Many of you will be­gin to make the break into a new, more confident phase. The next two weeks find your en­ergy build­ing up to a mild, monthly cli­max, one which favours all fresh starts and new be­gin­nings. Time to break the habits of a life­time, per­haps. Well, yes, it is, but then it's not com­pul­sory!

LEO (July 24 - Aug. 23)

You've prob­a­bly got a lot on your plate to­day. But that's only a prob­lem if you didn't ex­pect it. If you sense that your tasks and du­ties are pil­ing up, your worst re­sponse is to look the other way. Your best plan is to tackle them as they arise, with all the ef­fi­ciency and prac­ti­cal com­mon­sense at your dis­posal.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 - Sept. 23)

Your stars are rather pleas­ant, I'd say. It's all down to the Moon, re­ally, which is in a po­si­tion to of­fer emo­tional sup­port. Or, per­haps, it doesn't so much of­fer it as sig­nify the fact that peo­ple close to you, par­tic­u­larly fam­ily mem­bers, and es­pe­cially younger re­la­tions, will be pre­pared to back you!

LIBRA (Sept. 24 - Oct. 23)

There's a sense of cos­mic crunch to­day. What I mean by that is that you might not have too much choice about what you do. Or, at least, you might not have too much choice about the cir­cum­stances you're obliged to deal with. What you can do, of course, is make your nor­mal, mea­sured re­sponse.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22)

You have a rare skill: bring­ing to­gether your brightest ideas with a sense of prac­ti­cal, com­mon­sense, down-to-earth skill added to a fair de­gree of emo­tional wis­dom. That's what your Moon in­di­cates, at any rate. You'll have to de­cide which of your plans you put into ef­fect, and that's just the begin­ning!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 - Dec. 22)

Sagit­tar­i­ans di­vide into two groups to­day. There are those who are as high as kites on the one hand and those who are flat out, flaked out and worn out on the other hand. I don't think many of you will be in the mid­dle, but whichever group you fall into it's time to pre­serve your achieve­ments and con­serve your en­ergy.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 23 - Jan. 20)

The plan­ets are all chang­ing tracks and sig­nals which were once red, switch to green - and vice versa. That's why you're be­ing pre­sented with a once yearly op­por­tu­nity to change di­rec­tion, or even to put the breaks on all to­gether. You may be feel­ing a lit­tle over-emo­tional to­day, but then what a great chance that gives you to get in touch with your deeper feel­ings.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19)

The ques­tions you face could at first seem to be ut­terly triv­ial - such as whether to go out and party or stay in and be quiet. But ac­tu­ally there is a symp­tom of a more long-range ad­just­ment, one which is likely to colour your af­fairs over the next month. A busy, worth­while, pro­duc­tive month is com­ing for many of you.

PISCES (Feb. 20 - Mar 20)

Take heart from to­day's Venus and Jupiter pat­terns. These plan­ets are the per­fect pic­ture of a po­etic, soul­ful, con­tented, ro­man­tic and ide­al­is­tic day. There are the usual prac­ti­cal ne­ces­si­ties of life to cope with, so my ad­vice is to get all bur­den­some, rou­tine chores out of the way as early as pos­si­ble.
