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.
