Mars embodies energy and drive, and the influence of Uranus creates dramatic change. Today, Id like you to picture your life as the start of a new season in Formula 1. Each year, drivers change teams, new race technology is developed, and standings are reset. Our engines are now being upgraded. It may take a little while to get used to the new power, but get ready to leave your old lap times in the dust. If you want the things you love, You must have showers, So when you hear it thunder, Dont run under a tree, Therell be pennies from heaven, For you and me. The lyrics of Pennies From Heaven, by Johnny Burke, encourage us to dance in a tempest and rejoice at the rainfall. This may sound like you need to batten down the hatches and prepare for todays astrological weather. But the outlook isnt bad. Often, though, we need a storm to break the tension of a balmy climate. Youve no need to fear the sound of thunder! Hear how your life could change for the better soon. Call 1902 222 500. ARIES MAR 21APR 20 The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. Its the source of all true art and science. So said Einstein. Sometimes you feel like a veritable spelunker in life a potholer keen to get to the bottom of every depth it offers. And sometimes, you uncover more than you bargain for! But thats not why it may be wiser, today, to leave a question unanswered. Consider what happens when you no longer have questions. They say knowledge is power, but ignorance is bliss. You can find the balance between the two. Your forecast could be one of the most rewarding calls you make. Call 1902 222 500. GEMINI MAY 22JUN 22 When people first run into a traffic jam, their impulse is to sit in line. They figure that things will soon get moving. After a while, their attitude changes. Any alternative road, no matter where it leads, seems preferable to sitting still. With your traditional ruler conjunct Uranus, you may be at the point where you sorely need to put yourself in a different position. The only option might not be your preferred one? Regardless of whats wrong with it, better some progress than none. Adapt, adjust and be grateful for your opportunity. Treat yourself to some information. Call your forecast: 1902 222 500. SCORPIO OCT 24NOV 22 Were all like blinkered horses. We create filters that stop us from seeing or hearing too many signs and signals. There are ideas that were not open to, options that we automatically rule out. Thats how we manage to get in and out of a supermarket without spending hours judging every competing brand on offer. And outside the supermarket? Mercurys movement today asks you to notice and consider an option you might not normally see or listen to a voice or opinion youd never normally countenance. Treat yourself to some priceless information. Call your in-depth forecast: 1902 222 500. TAURUS APR 21 MAY 21 When we talk about endless possibilities, its seen as a positive statement. But possibilities arent always positive. Of course, if theyre endless, theres every chance we can switch from an ill-chosen path to one that has brighter prospects. But this, too, contains the possibility of not being quite right. The opportunity you face is only what you make of it. You can use it to take affirmative steps in an exciting new direction. But only if youre willing to approach it with the energy required to take the advantage. Hear how your life could change for the better soon. Call 1902 222 500. LIBRA SEP 24OCT 23 I recently had window shutters installed. The fitter asked what to do with the tatty curtains the previous owner had left behind. Ill probably end up throwing them away, I responded. But in the meantime Ill keep them in the shed for the next three years! This got me thinking about your situation. What are you holding on to that you dont need any more? Is it necessary to clutter your life to remind you of times when the light wasnt as favourable? Its time to take them to lifes charity store, and enjoy your new view. Your forecast could be one of the most rewarding calls you make. Call 1902 222 500. SAGITTARIUS NOV 23DEC 21 Mars continues moving through the part of the sky that, for you, governs hard work and dedication. Its the planet of energy, and willpower. And with its recent connection to Uranus, it represents a time to commit to changes youre being encouraged to make. At the end of the week, Venus turns retrograde, helping you reassess your true feelings about a situation. But right now, life encourages you to see something through. Dont worry about where youre headed, just hold on tight and enjoy the ride! Hear how your life could change for the better soon. Call 1902 222 500. CANCER JUN 23JUL 23 Once, there was something you didnt know. Because you didnt know it, you didnt even know you didnt know it! Then, one day, you knew it. You found something out, or something was revealed to you. Now, you cant imagine what life must have been like before you got that knowledge. How did you cope? On what basis did you make your choices, and how could they possibly have been wise? I say this only because, last weekends Eclipse, conjunct your ruler, can still bring about a wonderful revelation. Your forecast could be a rewarding call. Call 1902 222 500. VIRGO AUG 24SEP 23 My favourite image from the recent protest marches was a placard that simply read Im so angry I made a sign! It summed up how many of us can feel both outraged and powerless when battling institutions. Yet few of us are truly powerless. It simply seems that way when anger and protest are the only ways we engage with issues. You may be feeling passionate about seeing change. A grand gesture may make a statement, but its commitment and creative use of resources that lie at the root of your power. Treat yourself to some priceless information. Call your in-depth forecast: 1902 222 500. AQUARIUS JAN 21FEB 19 Think Different was a 1990s slogan used by Apple. Before the iMac, iPod and iPhone revolutionised the companys fortunes, their technology wasnt so common. Many firms had compatibility issues when using Apple products. In choosing this phrase, Apple was trying to make their computers more ubiquitous. They wanted everyone to think the same, from a different perspective! Youre headstrong and unique and sometimes that gives you compatibility issues. The answer? Lead by example. Treat yourself to some information. Call your forecast: 1902 222 500. LEO JUL 24AUG 23 Many things are done in the name of progress. Yet often, they bring about little improvement. People get excited about change for the sake of change. They dont stop to think whether that change would be truly beneficial. I mention this because I want to draw a distinction between that, and the change under way in your life. The change coming has a purpose. Its not a waste of time its not taking you in the wrong direction. Commit to the process, and youll be pleasantly surprised by the transformation it brings. Hear how your life could change for the better soon. Call 1902 222 500. CAPRICORN DEC 22JAN 20 We spoke yesterday, about obfuscation. No selfrespecting seer ever uses plain language when they can sound mysterious. Its a ritual as important as the need to remain properly clothed in public. If, today, I come straight out and say, you should say yes to the financial opportunity and no to the emotional commitment, Im exposing myself (and you) to an unacceptable imposition. The best I can do is hint. I think Ive just done that! With Mercury linked to Pluto, perhaps you can read between the lines? Your forecast could be one of the most rewarding calls you make. Call 1902 222 500. PISCES FEB 20MAR 20 oscar cainer www.CAiNER.COM Teletopia. Max call cost $1.32 per minute, including GST. Higher charges from mobiles/payphones may apply.
