But dont you need three points for a right angle? Deborah Hi Deborah, you do need three points for a right-angled triangle, yes. However you just need to stand and face the waxing moon tonight, then turn 90 degrees to face Venus in the sky. The aspect theyre making now is sometimes referred to as a right-angle or, more traditionally, in astrological speak its known as a square. The art to getting what you really want, starts by wanting what youve already got. Although feeling defiant and being galavanised into action can move you some way along the route to success, negative fuel is not going to propel you to a good destination. When youre motivated by negativity youre bound to arrive at a point where youre stuck in your own anger. If youre feeling unsatisfied by something today, try to find the positive hiding in it. Youll experience an immediate sense of improvement. The planets say that wonderful changes are possible. Call 1902 222 500. ARIES MAR 21APR 20 Money might make the world go round but, even though its such a vital part of our lives, we struggle to understand how to make it work best for us. It comes into our lives and then it leaves. So do all the things that it buys. When you dont have enough of it, this fact brings no comfort. Yet some things cost us just as dearly as any financial distress can ever do. If you can let go of a goal thats been costing you a lot in terms of worry, the rewarding lack of tension will be worth its weight in gold. Find the inspiration to make the changes you need in your life. Call 1902 222 500. GEMINI MAY 22JUN 22 No matter how hard we try, some things are out of our control. The weather is a good example although, come to think of it, cloud seeding is being developed as a means of inducing rain. We cant, though, predict the result of a football match or a game of chess although the world of gambling and betting has its own ways of influencing outcomes. In your life now, the things that you feel to be wayward and unpredictable are simply challenges. Theyre less out of control than you think. If you are looking to make some positive changes, call 1902 222 500. SCORPIO OCT 24NOV 22 When we dont want to do something (even if we dont consciously know it) even the smallest difficulty looks overwhelming. On the other hand, when youve set your sights on a goal, youll put up with a huge degree of hassle and bother as long as you can still work towards your objective. Today, you need to consider the challenge youre facing and decide how much it means to you. Look into your heart of hearts to find your true feelings. If you want to tackle it, you have the necessary tools. If you are looking to make some positive changes, call 1902 222 500. TAURUS APR 21 MAY 21 When other people keep shifting and changing their minds its difficult to know where you are and what you ought to be doing. Youve made a decision, and now other folk seem very keen to offer their (contradictory) advice. If I could hand you a pair of noise-cancelling headphones, I would. Thats not to say that the theories being proffered arent coming from good people who have your best interests at heart. Its just that you dont need distracting from your path today. Keep going. The planets say that wonderful changes are possible. Call 1902 222 500. LIBRA SEP 24OCT 23 Many people who hold positions of power seem to live by the maxim, never apologise, never explain. Theyve developed ways of deflecting questions so that no one ends up any the wiser. Although were used to seeing such conduct on our news programmes, its not a comfortable experience especially when were on the receiving end of such behaviour. In your world now, an honest discussion will be of great benefit. It will take some courage, but you have the information and the skills to facilitate it. Find the inspiration to make the changes you need in your life. Call 1902 222 500. SAGITTARIUS NOV 23DEC 21 The theory of homeopathy is that the weaker the dose of the medicine, the stronger its effect. Thus, when you have a little problem, you take a little amount of the remedy, and if you have a bigger problem, you take an even tinier amount. Although this concept flies in the face of traditional thinking (let alone medicine), it has many advocates. Although the idea thats being presented to you seems to defy your normal thinking processes, theres a very good chance that its a very good idea. This week can bring the success you deserve into your life. Call 1902 222 500. CANCER JUN 23JUL 23 Its true that some things are impossible. But, before you throw in the towel, its worth considering the options that are available. To you, it looks as if the other routes require so much effort that its not worth even thinking about them. Yet theres much to be gained by attempting something that feels difficult. Not doing anything wont be any easier. If you act on your urge to do something, you might find that you manage to do the impossible. You can certainly achieve more than you think. There is excitement and fun in the stars for you this week. Call 1902 222 500. VIRGO AUG 24SEP 23 Have you any idea of how much you have to be thankful for? Do you know how much luck you have on your side? The current cosmic climate indicates that you can see a familiar scenario from an enlightened perspective. This will enable you to feel much less stressed about a confusing matter thats been the cause of recent anxiety. An inspirational improvement is on your horizon. Something thats been problematic is transforming into a positive. Your hard work is paying off. You can work magic in your world this week. Find out how. Call 1902 222 500. AQUARIUS JAN 21FEB 19 Our tastes change as we grow older. Often, the things we reject out of hand as kids, turn out to become favourites. Thats because many of the best things in the world take a bit of time to get used to. Rather than breeding contempt, familiarity often brings us a secure feeling of contentment. You know what you like and what you dont. Although youre feeling wary of a certain situation and the people within it, its worth sticking alongside for a while. Therell be much to enjoy and gain from this experience. You can work magic in your world this week. Call 1902 222 500. LEO JUL 24AUG 23 Sometimes things seem fine for a while, then, suddenly, its as if our spectacles lose their rosetintedness and we see the stark reality. Thats the moment when nit-picking and fault-finding can set in. Then, innocuous sounding questions can lead to outsized misgivings. Little insecurities become sources of self-doubt, and our confidence can be undermined. Youve been forced into a situation thats making you rethink your priorities. Yet youre overlooking a real advantage. Dont lose sight of the positive. This week can bring the success you deserve into your life. Call 1902 222 500. CAPRICORN DEC 22JAN 20 When you think about all the changes youve witnessed since your arrival on the planet, its almost enough to blow you mind. The future holds just as many unimaginable transformations. In fact, one of the only certitudes in this crazy world of ours is that theres always something new ahead. Even though its hard to perceive, the situation youre facing is changing. Although you have no idea of how it is going to turn out, hold on to your sense of perspective. All is just as it needs to be. There is excitement and fun in the stars for you this week. Call 1902 222 500. PISCES FEB 20MAR 20 oscar cainer www.CAiNER.COM Teletopia.
