I have long be­lieved this world is be­com­ing safer and saner. I still see this, de­spite the Paris tragedy. Count­less mil­lions want only to live in peace. To give that peace a chance, we should try to want noth­ing but good, even for those who want noth­ing b

ARIES Mar 21—Apr 20 WHY are we re­quired to act like grown-ups? Can’t we be al­lowed to act like the kids who, deep down in­side, we surely still are? What’s all this pres­sure to pay bills, ful­fil du­ties, ac­cept re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and make tricky de­ci­sions? Why can’t we be left to play un­der the kitchen ta­ble while some­one else takes care of all that stuff? Some­one, it seems, thinks that it is nec­es­sary for you to dis­play an adult at­ti­tude this week. You may not feel es­pe­cially in­spired to do this, but you are quite ca­pa­ble — as you will soon prove. Just four min­utes on the phone to me could change your life.

TAU­RUS Apr 21—May 21 PER­HAPS you doubt your own abil­ity. Maybe you ques­tion whether you are en­ti­tled to wield a par­tic­u­lar type of power. Even so, you are in a stronger po­si­tion than you think and are about to be the ben­e­fi­ciary of ad­van­ta­geous cir­cum­stances. Th­ese will en­sure that, whether by accident or de­sign, luck or skill, you have wound up in the right place at the right time and are about to find your­self nat­u­rally un­der­stand­ing how (and when) to do just the right thing. Trust what your in­stincts are start­ing to tell you. Just four min­utes on the phone to me could change your life. Call your lat­est week-ahead forecast: 0906 751 5602.

GEM­INI May 22 — June 22 LIFE on Earth is not al­ways as easy as we wish. Nor, though, is it al­ways as dif­fi­cult as we fear. There are, it’s true, times when things fall hap­pily into place for some folk and times, too, when oth­ers seem to be strug­gling against more than is fair. But ex­pe­ri­ences at ei­ther end of that spec­trum are rare. Most of us are some­where in the mid­dle. It’s only our imag­i­na­tion that per­suades us we are drift­ing to­wards one ex­treme or an­other. This week brings real­ism and re­as­sur­ance. Just four min­utes on the phone to me could change your life. Call your lat­est weekahead forecast: 0906 751 5603.

CAN­CER June 23—July 23 WE OF­TEN ob­serve that ‘some things are sent to try us’. If so, doesn’t it fol­low that there must be ‘other things’ that are sent to as­sist and in­spire us? It stands to rea­son, doesn’t it? We can’t ex­pect only sources of stress and strain to be sent our way. The same chan­nels that de­liver th­ese must surely also bring more de­sir­able devel­op­ments. This week’s most im­por­tant ques­tion is sim­ply: ‘What hap­pier pack­ages are also likely to be sent your way this week?’ You’ll like the an­swer you even­tu­ally get. Just four min­utes on the phone to me could change your life. Call your lat­est weekahead forecast: 0906 751 5604. AS

LEO July 24 — Aug 23 WE al­ways turn to our zo­diac forecast in the hope of hear­ing good news, there must be a real need for that good news in our lives. If we were al­ready ben­e­fit­ing from a cav­al­cade of com­fort­ing com­mu­niques, we wouldn’t seek such mes­sages from as­trologers. Does that mean then, that when the world fi­nally be­comes a fairer, hap­pier, place there will be no fur­ther call for my pro­fes­sion? We’ll find out if it ever hap­pens. Mean­while, you need some good news and I can prom­ise plenty for you this week. Just four min­utes on the phone to me could change your life. Call your lat­est week-ahead forecast: 0906 751 5605. VIRGO Aug 24—Sep 23 PEO­PLE who for­ever look on the bright side may find a need to wear sun­glasses. But that hardly means that they would be bet­ter off peer­ing into dark­ness. Peo­ple who seek hid­den truths may be over­whelmed by the sheer amount that is wait­ing to be dis­cov­ered, yet that’s no rea­son to dwell in the realm of delu­sion and de­cep­tion. It is as if, this week, you are re­luc­tant to pursue an in­spir­ing idea lest it raises too many con­fus­ing pos­si­bil­i­ties. Fo­cus on it any­way. All will be­come com­fort­ingly clear. Just four min­utes on the phone to me could change your life. Call your lat­est weekahead forecast: 0906 751 5606. LI­BRA Sep 24 — Oct 23 IS IT fair or rea­son­able to ex­pect a good week? A de­gree of thought must be given to what we mean by the word ‘good’. Flights of fancy that cul­mi­nate in lottery wins or in the favourable com­ple­tion of pro­tracted con­flicts may be un­likely. I’m not say­ing such events sim­ply can­not tran­spire, but would you really re­quire devel­op­ments quite so dra­matic? Are there not smaller hopes and wishes which, if even partly ful­filled, would bring a smile to your face? Those pos­si­bil­i­ties, at least, look dis­tinctly fea­si­ble. Just four min­utes on the phone to me could change your life. Call your lat­est weekahead forecast: 0906 751 5607. SCOR­PIO Oct 24—Nov 22 WHO runs the world? Old folk? Or young folk? If the young are all do­ing what the old are telling them to do, let us hope that the old folk re­call the many ridicu­lous rules which they had hoped to erad­i­cate, yet which are still be­ing up­held, more through in­er­tia than in­tent. If the young folk daren’t chal­lenge th­ese and the old ones can’t even re­mem­ber that they need to be chal­lenged, how can there ever be pos­i­tive change? In your heart, you are young. And this week will yet bring you a young per­son’s vic­tory. Just four min­utes on the phone to me could change your life. Call your lat­est weekahead forecast: 0906 751 5608. SAGIT­TAR­IUS Nov 23—Dec 21 YOU want to do what’s fair. You want to do what’s right. But do you also want to do what’s re­al­is­tic? A nat­u­ral urge to pursue the path of truth and jus­tice burns in ev­ery Sagit­tar­ian heart like a torch in a sa­cred crypt. But your def­i­ni­tion of ‘re­al­is­tic’ is, well, it’s not for me to crit­i­cise you, es­pe­cially when you so of­ten sur­prise the naysay­ers. But let’s just say your def­i­ni­tion of ‘re­al­is­tic’ is sur­pris­ingly sim­i­lar to some­one else’s def­i­ni­tion of ‘un­re­al­is­tic’. You may well be proven right this week. Be sen­si­tive, even so. Just four min­utes could change your life. Call your lat­est week-ahead forecast: 0906 751 5609. CAPRI­CORN Dec 22—Jan 20 IF WE only ever do the ob­vi­ous, what’s the point in hav­ing an imag­i­na­tion? Why be glad of the spark of in­no­va­tion that lights our in­ner can­dle of cre­ativ­ity? Don’t we feel fan­tas­tic when we are ex­plor­ing new ter­ri­tory? While it can hardly be wise to re­ject any idea sim­ply be­cause it is too con­ven­tional, there is much to be said for ex­plor­ing all op­tions. This week, there is so much to be said for this it is no won­der you are hear­ing en­cour­ag­ing sug­ges­tions every­where you go. Feel free to heed th­ese. Just four min­utes on the phone to me could change your life. Call your lat­est week-ahead forecast: 0906 751 5610.

AQUAR­IUS Jan 21 — Feb 19 AQUAR­I­ANS are un­afraid of dif­fi­culty. If some­one tells you they ex­pect a plan to prove prob­lem­atic or that you had best pre­pare to face an ob­sta­cle, this hardly daunts you. You are tena­cious. Ex­pe­ri­ence has also taught you that most folk are too quick to give up. They don’t think things through. They as­sume the worst and opt, in­stead, for what­ever looks eas­i­est. You are smarter than that, and that’s why you of­ten ac­com­plish so much more. It is cer­tainly why you can ex­pect to do so well this week. Just four min­utes on the phone to me could change your life. Call your lat­est week-ahead forecast: 0906 751 5611. PISCES Feb 20 — Mar 20 SINCE 1846, as­trologers have seen the planet Nep­tune as the ruler of Pisces. Since June, this year, Nep­tune has been go­ing through one of its reg­u­lar ret­ro­grade phases. That ends this week, and, with it ends some of the ret­i­cence you have re­cently been feel­ing about a plan or project. It may, in prin­ci­ple, have made much sense to you. But you have felt un­able to fully iden­tify with the ob­jec­tive. Slowly, this week, you re­gain faith in your own fu­ture and be­gin to see many a re­as­sur­ing rea­son to ex­pect suc­cess. Just four min­utes on the phone to me could change your life. Call your lat­est weekahead forecast: 0906 751 5612.
