But its the conjunction of harmonious Venus and passionate Mars that demands our attention. This event occurs every couple of years, and it always has an impact on relationships. Its one of those moments when self-assertion and co-operation can work hand in hand. Highlighted by the powerful full moon, it suggests that an important understanding can be reached. Lets hope it affects those in positions of power, as well as us. Seeing winning and losing as opposites is unhelpful. It is, though, our culturally-entrenched perspective. When the only alternative to winning is being the loser, winning becomes everything. Yet, even though great athletes lose sometimes, their place in sporting history remains intact. You want to succeed. But, if youre overwhelmingly focused on attaining first place, you risk losing sight of whats motivating you. Its time to dampen your burning desire to win, and reignite your passion. Are you ready for great news about the rest of October? Call 1902 222 500. ARIES MAR 21APR 20 Yesterday, we talked about the full moon bringing a sense of protection. But, your astrological outlook is nuanced. The full moon acts as a source of celestial assistance.

Theyre affecting the part of the sky associated with your inner, hidden strength. Dont doubt the might of your foundations today. Your indomitable energy should not be underestimated.

They might drum their fingers, clear their throats, or resort to the same phrase repeatedly. To a newcomer, these quirks can be frustrating but, over time, the people around them cease noticing altogether. Recently, someones eccentricities have been getting under your skin. Rather than making a scene, why not take a step back? Their habits may be stopping you from seeing the gifts they have to offer. Make the rest of October a magical month.

And today, she conjuncts Mars, in a part of the sky that, for Taureans, is concerned with romance, generosity and whole-heartedness. Since Mars is the planet of passion, you can expect interesting developments in matters of the heart. Your creative faculties will also flourish. So dont be afraid to try something new. Add the full moon to the mix and, although not everything will be perfect, a lot will. Make the rest of October great! For your month-ahead forecast, call 1902 222 500. TAURUS APR 21 MAY 21 Possibly the most dangerous phrase in English is: Id be happy if.... In this mindset, happiness is impossible. Only when we achieve an arbitrary set of conditions will we be satisfied. And thats ridiculous! Although astrologers look into the future, we know that what will make someone happy three months down the line, isnt always what they think it might be. All anyone knows for sure, is whats going on in the present. As Venus and Mars link today, give yourself permission to be happy. For all you really need to know about the rest of October, call 1902 222 500. LIBRA SEP 24OCT 23 When were determined, even the impossible becomes doable. Theres nothing quite like the satisfaction of hard work paying off. But, when were tempted to fight unnecessary battles that carry little hope of reward, problems arise. Whats the point in achieving a goal, if the path to success causes anguish? Thats not to say that some things arent worth fighting for. But, if you decide to invest your energy in a challenge that makes you happy, itll be far more rewarding. Are you ready for great news about the rest of October? Call 1902 222 500. SAGITTARIUS NOV 23DEC 21 Should you look before you leap, or throw caution to the wind? Sometimes, major advances happen only when a brave individual decides to take a leap in the dark and in those circumstances, theres no point in looking! That doesnt mean you should throw yourself at a challenge without consideration. But, as another proverb has it, he who hesitates is lost. You can talk yourself out of anything if you leave it long enough. So, if your gut feeling is to go for it, dont over-analyse that instinct. Make the rest of October a magical month. For important news, call 1902 222 500. CANCER JUN 23JUL 23 Theres a British sitcom character called Swiss Toni. Hes an absurd car salesman who lectures his young assistant about how to be an appealing lover (and proving himself inept at that and everything else). You have no need of a Swiss Toni in your life.

AQUARIUS JAN 21FEB 19 We are who we are nothing can change that. Except, thats not quite true. What is life, but a process of discovery?

LEO JUL 24AUG 23 The trouble with opportunity is that it always comes disguised as hard work. Thus said the American banker and author Herbert Prochnow.
