So often in life, its strong, powerful women working in the shadows who are the driving force of our greatest, most fundamental changes. Sadly, they often dont get the credit they deserve. So, as Pluto, representing hidden power, links to the bold interaction of the sun and Mercury, nows the time to shine a light on the achievements of women in the world. They deserve to be celebrated far more than they are. As your rulers passage through your sign draws to a close, you may be dreading the idea that you may, in the words of Austin Powers, begin to lose your mojo. But you dont need to fear this moment. Actually, it can be a positive experience. A period of relative calm will do you some good. And relative is the key word. Youre not going to be stopped in your tracks. You dont even need to lose momentum. The trick is to be able to transfer the energy within you, to the world around you. Then, you can sit back and enjoy the ride! Whats happening to you? And why? Your forecast has the answers: Call 1902 222 500. ARIES MAR 21APR 20 Theres little worse than watching a comedy show when the comic fails to get any laughs. In the trade, comedians call it dying perhaps because it sucks the life from everyone involved! As a veteran of many an Edinburgh Fringe, I know that seeing a bad show often leaves more of an impression than seeing a slick pro successfully going through the motions. Even the best comedians have been through this process whilst honing their schtick. Be thankful for the difficulties youve faced. Theyre revealing your way to the top. Whats happening to you? And why? Your forecast has the answers: Call 1902 222 500. GEMINI MAY 22JUN 22 You can choose what you watch on TV. And if theres nothing good, you can download a movie or stream a TV series. But you cant pick up a remote control and adjust tomorrows weather. The sky will bring whatever it intends to bring, no matter how hard we try to manipulate its agenda. When faced with a climate that we cant control, all we can do is alter our attitude towards it and react accordingly. Mercury and the sun both link to your ruler Pluto now. If youre similarly fluid now, youll enjoy lifes gripping storyline. How can you get what you need? Your forecast has the answers: Call 1902 222 500. SCORPIO OCT 24NOV 22 On Friday, when Mars arrives in your sign, youll begin to notice how long its been since you felt so motivated, determined, and potentially powerful. There may be obstacles in your way but theyll pose little resistance as long as theyre difficulties created by other people. Whether your opponents and adversaries are acting consciously or not, you can triumph but not if you trip yourself up by becoming too hasty, harsh or heartless. With your ruler retrograde, nows the time to consider the transformation you can soon begin. How can you get what you need? Your forecast has the answers: Call 1902 222 500. TAURUS APR 21 MAY 21 I know what I want and I know how to get it, I want to destroy, passers-by! sang the punk band The Sex Pistols. We dont need to shove safety pins through our noses in order to identify with this kind of anger. Even Librans, famed for tolerance, arent immune to a raging temper, especially when they feel that life is being unfair. Where is your passion at risk of turning to venom? Dont let it become a dividing line between yourself and others. Youll soon see how to direct this energy into mutually beneficial endeavours. Whats happening to you? And why? Your forecast has the answers: Call 1902 222 500. LIBRA SEP 24OCT 23 Do you remember me talking about the past in yesterdays forecast? What about the day before? Theyre hard to forget. Not because Im a particularly memorable writer, or an epiphany-inducing fount of life-changing wisdom. Its just that, since your minds somewhat preoccupied with the past, recent events are hanging around your consciousness like my cat when hes decided that its lunchtime. But this is one attention-demanding nuisance that you dont have to feed. Put those troubles out of the back door and relax. Whats happening to you? And why? Your forecast has the answers: Call 1902 222 500. SAGITTARIUS NOV 23DEC 21 Teachers know that if they want their students to retain information, they must make their lessons at least a little entertaining. Diplomats know that when they have an unwelcome message to deliver, it will be received better if its prefaced and followed by a compliment or a concession. Mary Poppins summed it up best when she sang, A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down. As Mercury links with Pluto today, whether youre administering or receiving a form of medicine, do all you can do to make it palatable. How can you get what you need? Your forecast has the answers: Call 1902 222 500. CANCER JUN 23JUL 23 I have, as you may have noticed lately, been gently but pointedly suggesting that you have the capacity to behave with great grace and dignity. You can set an example. You can buck a trend. You dont have to descend to someone elses level, or reduce your standards until they comply with the lowest common denominator. You can be mildly heroic, and subtly saintly, sweetly altruistic. The sun has just been conjunct your ruler. It suggests that youll put yourself at no disadvantage by doing that today, and may yet make a great gain. How can you get what you need? Your forecast has the answers: Call 1902 222 500. VIRGO AUG 24SEP 23 Yesterday, I talked about the weird world I grew up in. Astrology has been the family business for as long as I can remember. With a background like mine, could I have done anything else? Perhaps theres an alternative universe where I work in an office, and dont spend my nights star-gazing, and my days figuring out what it all means! But I know how lucky I am. Theres no point in regretting the things we cant change and the past is one of those. Remember that you have more to be thankful for, than be frustrated about. Whats happening to you? And why? Your forecast has the answers: Call 1902 222 500. AQUARIUS JAN 21FEB 19 Mars is about to change signs. This affects each zodiac sign differently. For you, it focuses on ambition your motivation is about to get a shot in the arm. Motivation is one thing, and achieving your aims is another! For the impatient, this may spell a moment of frustration. But Im sure nobody ever accused you of such a vice! Nor could they dare suggest that youre difficult when you fail to get what you want. So, for no reason at all, Ill suggest that you temper your enthusiasm with commitment! Surge forwards, but steadily so. Whats happening to you? And why? Call 1902 222 500. LEO JUL 24AUG 23 Whatever we do, someone will criticise us. This isnt my prediction for you today; its just a general observation. Heres something else you can say to pretty much anyone at any time. Today is the first day of the rest of your life. 2017s great T-square is focused on your sign. And it will keep providing opportunities for you to arrive at bright new beginnings. But you may also keep encountering reasons to doubt. Its up to you to choose which of these mind-sets dominate. Mercury today both encourages and enables the former. How can you get what you need? Call 1902 222 500. CAPRICORN DEC 22JAN 20 Imagine if your best friend was also your worst enemy. Tricky. Especially if you were never quite sure which aspect of this individual you were likely to encounter from one moment to the next. Now, lets stop here for a moment. I think I know what youre thinking. You dont have to imagine it; its something youve experienced from time to time. Indeed, you have. That person is you! But as Mercury links encouragingly to Pluto, the good news is that you now have power over which side of yourself you show to yourself! How can you get what you need?
