Today, we enter the final leg in the 12-year Chinese astrological cycle: the earth Year of the Pig. Although Im no expert, it seems that this noble animal represents wealth and affluence. Given that Jupiter, the planet of abundance, also takes 12 years to traverse the zodiac and return to full power in Sagittarius (as is now the case), there are wonderful parallels to be drawn with the astrology Im more familiar with. So, I wish all readers a New Year as happy as a pig in earth! If youre wondering what size of risk you should be preparing to take, its worth taking a moment to consider all your options. When youre dealing with the roulette wheel of fortune, youd be well-advised to make a moderate move. But, in the long run, youll be far better off focusing your energy on a certainty. Trust in your judgment rather than your luck. Youre in receipt of information, yet you need to check its reliability before you act upon it. Then, you can take a courageous step forward. Be ready for the magic on offer to you this month. Call 1902 222 500. ARIES MAR 21APR 20 Before da Vinci put his brush to the canvas, the enigmatic smile of the Mona Lisa existed only in the realms of his imagination. Similarly, a young Mozart sat down at a keyboard and composed music that has created an emotional response across the centuries. Thats how a single idea can influence the world. The new moon brings an opportunity that could easily be overlooked in the machinations of your busy life. Dont make the mistake of underestimating the value of your thoughts and imaginings today. Be ready for the magic on offer to you this month. Call 1902 222 500. GEMINI MAY 22JUN 22 As we move further into the future, we become increasingly adept at enshrining the past. Whilst our predecessors made do with paintings and books to jog their memories, we have an abundance of technological time preservatives: photos, videos and sound-recordings at our fingertips, ready to remind us of how things used to be. That can make moving on trickier. The new moon suggests its time draw a line under something youre holding on to. Today holds too much potential to miss. Theres great news in your prediction for the next few weeks. Call 1902 222 500. SCORPIO OCT 24NOV 22 Whats the meaning of life? Surely were just random blips in an otherwise bleak and meaningless universe? Well, lets see if youre still feeling that way by the end of the week. I rather suspect that youre about to be reminded of just how wonderful this world can be. Life is a blessing, a miracle granted by a force that is beyond our understanding. Whenever we give our attention to the inevitable petty issues, we seem to be consumed by them. But, if you look for joy today, youll find it by the bucketload. Theres great news in your prediction for the next few weeks. Call 1902 222 500. TAURUS APR 21 MAY 21 All any of us can ever do is our best. Hmm thats not quite true, because, if that were all we could do, wed all do our best all the time. The problem is that were also quite capable of doing our worst. And, what makes life even more tricky, is that sometimes we think were doing our best, but were doing our worst. How is this information going to change your day? You just need to bear in mind that, even when youre completely certain about something, its important to leave some room for doubt. Be ready for the magic on offer to you this month. Call 1902 222 500. LIBRA SEP 24OCT 23 Some folk dont like sleeping in the dark. They feel unsafe if they cant see whats going on, and prefer to leave a light on. Yet, sometimes, we have no choice but to face uncertainty. There will always be things we dont know, and its impossible to keep our eye on everything. It can take a long time (even a lifetime) to learn to accept, trust and relax. The new moon seems to be shining a light on something that you can feel even though it remains invisible. Patience is key. All is about to be revealed. Be ready for the magic on offer to you this month. Call 1902 222 500. SAGITTARIUS NOV 23DEC 21 If everything is preordained, why do we bother wasting so much time making decisions? Why do we use up emotional reserves dealing with stress? If its not going to change anything, surely wed be better off expending our energy on more enjoyable pursuits? But, everything does matter. Nothing is set in stone. The implications of the choices you make today will ripple through your life and be felt years from now. Thus, the power to fill your world with happiness is in your hands today. Theres great news in your prediction for the next few weeks. Call 1902 222 500. CANCER JUN 23JUL 23 When everything starts to go our way, we get an irresistible urge to celebrate. Although that might be normal, its not always sensible. The energy we expend could, after all, be put to more effective use. And, lets not forget that success and failure are two halves of the same whole. The same people who fixate on winning over-fixate on the opposite. With so much potential, its important to bear this in mind today. With equilibrium as your goal, you can enjoy whatever the world brings your way. Theres great news in your prediction for the next few weeks. Call 1902 222 500. VIRGO AUG 24SEP 23 Sometimes, when you catch yourself thinking profound thoughts, you feel silly. Life on planet Earth isnt geared up to supporting contemplative ideas and philosophies. You dont see adverts along the high street for discounted evening classes on the meaning of life. Our favourite, action-packed, dramatic characters dont pause for moments of quiet reflection. For the most part, we seem happy to go along with the frothiness of life. Be glad as the new moon in your sign obliges you to face a reality. Be ready for the magic on offer to you this month. Call 1902 222 500. AQUARIUS JAN 21FEB 19 This prediction is for some other Leo. You should be well what exactly should you be doing? And why are you just assuming that someone elses needs are more important than yours? Its as if your usual self-confidence has been undermined and you doubt your right to the respect you deserve. No wonder youre feeling uncomfortable. No wonder that a problem you thought youd solved is looming scarily. Yet, all is fine in your world. Take a deep breath your sense of proportion is on the return. Be ready for the magic on offer to you this month. Call 1902 222 500. LEO JUL 24AUG 23 Youre more used to giving advice than taking it. Sometimes, that makes you a hero; other times, rather the opposite. Occasionally, youve even been known to do both simultaneously! Today, though, you have no idea how to handle a scenario. Youre full of doubt youre second-guessing and questioning yourself. Yet, though you might not have the answer, youve got something much more important: the right questions. Keep asking those, and your powers of discrimination will lead you to the solution. Theres great news in your prediction for the next few weeks. Call 1902 222 500. CAPRICORN DEC 22JAN 20 No!

The new one, with the upper case letters and the punctuation marks that youve noted down. Oh, youve forgotten where youve written it. Have you looked properly? You cant just give up. Whats that? Youve no idea where it is. Okay, on this occasion Ill believe that its you. Just make sure you dont let anyone boss you around today. Theres great news in your prediction for the next few weeks.
