Then retrograde Mercury enters the fray. But, although Mercury and Mars meet while the red planet is still infused with these energies, Mercury stops tantalisingly short of rekindling its own grand trine. Were being given access to great inner strength. This comes with the temptation to tear down structures that seem constricting. Lets ring the changes with care. Its perfectly possible to run across hot coals without burning your feet. You just need to know the tricks to it oh, and to be able to run very fast!

Youll find more success, this weekend, by being wise rather than brave. September is a powerful month for you. Learn more: 1902 222 500. ARIES MAR 21APR 20 Some things are absolute. One plus one equals two. Thats a fact. Its one of the cornerstones of our knowledge. A million complex equations spring from that one certainty. But dont let mathematical extrapolation fool you into thinking that the process is infallible. Whenever we begin to extrapolate our beliefs or ideas, its easy to lose sight of the original concept. We can end up lost and confused, having entirely missed the point. Be wary of making false connections, this weekend. September brings potential for change. Discover more: 1902 222 500. GEMINI MAY 22JUN 22 If something stops working, theres usually a pretty simple procedure to get it going again. If the light goes out, all we need to do is change the bulb. Simple. But its only simple because we know what to do. Give us a problem with, say, the plumbing, and were convinced that the whole house will need turning upside down by a team of plumbers and itll take a week and a half. But of course it wont.

SCORPIO OCT 24NOV 22 If life is series of causes and effects, the sequences are so convoluted that its difficult to find the root of a problem.

Youre a vital player, and any move you make has tangible results. Although you feel stuck right now, the options opening up to you can create significant change. In September, planet-power can change your life. Call 1902 222 500. TAURUS APR 21 MAY 21 Knowledge might be a noble pursuit, but not all pursuits of knowledge are noble. When we seek knowledge to discern the truth about something, or to better ourselves, we are motivated by some kind of greater good. But, when we seek knowledge out of jealousy, or to get the better of someone else, then our actions are harder to justify. What youre currently trying to find out may not be for you to know. Be honest about your motivations, and if necessary, let go and move on. September brings a rare opportunity for change. Call 1902 222 500. LIBRA SEP 24OCT 23 No sooner has your great adventure begun than you find yourself on unknown and dangerous seas. Land seems a million miles away. Your life boats have capsized and theres no life-jacket. Theres no way back and this all seems like a terrible, terrible idea. But, everything happens for a reason. Dont allow a temporary bump in the road to curtail your journey. Youll get to where youre going and, when you do, youll look back on this with fondness. Hard to imagine, yes. But true. Your new four-minute forecast for September is ready. Call 1902 222 500. SAGITTARIUS NOV 23DEC 21 Theres often a strange, barely tangible connection running between the things we want and the things we dont want. One can be strangely reliant on the other. Thered be no need for a police force if crime didnt exist. Nor would we need gyms if we didnt have TVs and sofas! Friends without enemies? Good times without the bad? The connections arent always obvious, or comfortable, but theyre a crucial fact of life. Sometimes, as youre about to see, what seems wrong can be advantageous. A four-minute call can make September special: 1902 222 500. CANCER JUN 23JUL 23 Mercury is already on a sharp deceleration, and will soon come to a standstill. It feels as though a sloth might be able to overtake the ruler of your sign. You too are dragging your feet. Its as if youre approaching what appears to be an unwanted milestone.

If you shake the mud from your boots, youll be free to enjoy something fresh. Be ready for the magic on offer to you in September. Call 1902 222 500.

Its the sure fire way to success. I have inspiring news in your brand-new September forecast: 1902 222 500. AQUARIUS JAN 21FEB 19 The author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie recently said that the European stories she grew up with were preoccupied by the weather: In Nigeria, the weather wasnt often discussed. Its sunny there usually. But, is a sunny day sunnier if the weathers been miserable beforehand? Is it still defined as sunny, in a place where the sun always shines? Theres something to be said for the ephemerality of sunshine. You dont need to hold on to the warmth youre feeling; it will pass, but it will also come again. Inspiring times await you. Call your September forecast: 1902 222 500. LEO JUL 24AUG 23 Guardian angels were a favourite theme of Jonathans and have become one of mine. Yet, statistically speaking, Capricorns are less likely to believe in such beings. Perhaps its because you often feel as if youre the one having to do the guarding. But, you have to admit that every now and then, a mysterious, inexplicable force seems to be working for you. You might not see halos this weekend, but that doesnt mean you wont be looked after. Dont question the change in fortunes enjoy it! I want to tell you why September has so many opportunities: 1902 222 500. CAPRICORN DEC 22JAN 20 Imagine if humanity moved into a new era of peace and harmony. The first to feel it would be the arms dealers. Overnight their weaponry would be worthless. Next, the lawyers would see their disputes melt away, and their lucrative contracts evaporate. Too many people are invested in keeping the world at loggerheads. But things are gradually changing. You face a choice. Either continue a conflict or break away from a negative mind-set and take a positive step towards happiness. Your forecast for the whole of September can really help you: 1902 222 500. PISCES FEB 20MAR 20 oscar cainer www.CAiNER.COM Teletopia. Max call cost $1.32 per minute, including GST.
