And the angle it makes with Uranus today suggests a potential breakthrough in a matter thats been troubling you for a while. But, of course, change cant help but be influenced by whats come before. After all, unless theres a situation that requires changing, theres little incentive to make a fuss! Whatevers been holding you back, here comes the chance to channel your own Houdini. Who is to blame and who is without fault? You and I cant ever be sure but the cosmos knows. Why then, does it not save us the bother of holding trials and inquiries? Cant some divine power simply cause the guilty to walk around with bright red noses while the innocent float a few inches off the ground? Probably, it doesnt do this because it doesnt want to judge. Perhaps we should learn from this. We all have things we can feel proud of and things we should be at least a little ashamed of. Be careful where you point a finger today. Discover why February has so many opportunities. Call 1902 222 500. ARIES MAR 21APR 20 According to the rulebook, you havent got quite what you need right now. But the rulebook is in dire need of being rewritten. Sometimes, we have to question convention, cock a snook at tradition, and even split infinitives: to boldly go where none have gone before. Your ruler is becoming the focus of the Jupiter-Uranus opposition. This provides a justifiable reason to push an envelope, stretch a boundary and explore an alternative. It doesnt entitle you to stage a revolution, but it could well be right for you to implement a revolutionary idea. Your in-depth forecast for the whole of February can really help. Call 1902 222 500. GEMINI MAY 22JUN 22 In theory, the beating of a butterflys wing on one continent could trigger a hurricane on the other side of the world. Just imagine the damage that could be prevented if we could just track down the right butterflies. We dont know for sure that this theory is true. Its tricky to test. But its fair to say that seemingly small developments can have enormous and unexpected consequences. And, thanks to todays astrological weather, one positive change in your environment now may yet turn out to have a most marvellous, knock-on effect on your life. Inspiring times await. Call: 1902 222 500. SCORPIO OCT 24NOV 22 Once weve learned a skill, subject or trade, we can draw on this experience for ever afterwards. Its never long before we forget the effort it took to attain this knowledge. But whilst were studying, its a different story. To last the course takes diligence and dedication. As Mercury makes its link to the JupiterUranus opposition, the University of Life is preparing you for an advanced diploma. This will open many doors and bring many rewards. Hit the books, study hard and think deeply. You can yet have your lightbulb moment. There is inspiring news in your in-depth February forecast. Call 1902 222 500. TAURUS APR 21 MAY 21 Without realising it, we make choices about what we let ourselves be bothered by and to what we remain indifferent. Once we have reached such a decision, we rarely go back on it. Only in special circumstances might we conclude that we will no longer care about something that once mattered to us. But have you been expending precious energy on a matter that need not matter as much as youre letting it? Mercurys angle to Jupiter, in your sign, opposite Uranus, suggests you can move forward with a clear head and a clean slate. Four minutes on the phone can make February special. Call 1902 222 500. LIBRA SEP 24OCT 23 Dale Carnegie wrote How to Win Friends and Influence People. Sadly, he never wrote the crucial follow-up, How to Make People Go Away and Stop Paying You So Much Irritating Attention. Now, the way to achieve that may seem obvious. But it can be surprisingly hard to get a little peace and quiet in this modern, demanding world. You may feel youre being offered a lot of something flattering... but not a lot of something truly useful. Coming events will soon put that right. Mercurys movements can reveal how valuable what you have truly is. Be ready for the magic in February. Call 1902 222 500. SAGITTARIUS NOV 23DEC 21 When folk remind us of ourselves, we either tend to feel weve found a long-lost friend or encountered a lifelong enemy. Largely, this depends on whether they remind us of a trait were proud of or one we reluctantly admit to. As, over time, we change our ideas about who we are, so we re-evaluate our relationships. We may become attracted to those we once disliked, or be repelled by the folk who once charmed us. With todays events focused on your opposite sign, someone is now holding up a mirror. Try to be aware of what its really showing. Call 1902 222 500. CANCER JUN 23JUL 23 They say that life is an education. But sometimes it seems as if we are all students at the School of Hard Knocks. Therefore, we must steel ourselves to face problems. We should always be ready for and wary of trouble. Though recent events in your life have helped to confirm this view. It is also unnecessarily negative. Life can also be surprisingly sweet and joyously generous. As your ruler links to the great 2017 Jupiter-Uranus opposition, events now can help to remind you of the truth in that more positive perspective. February brings great potential for change. Call 1902 222 500. VIRGO AUG 24SEP 23 It seems that what you want is something impossible. But that is no reason to stop wanting it. Perhaps what you want seems impossible only because youve been keeping the company of people with a restricted view of the world. They may be not supporting you because their ideas are less visionary. You might feel very differently if you were instilled with qualities of enthusiasm and belief. As Mercury links to the great opposition between Jupiter and your ruler Uranus, take a practical problem into account, but look harder for a way to work around it. Call 1902 222 500. AQUARIUS JAN 21FEB 19 They say necessity is the mother of invention. Youve certainly got a need that cant be easily met in an ordinary way. But if necessity is the mother, whats the father? One answer might be desperation. Just one brief decision, reached in an intense perceived crisis can often start a slow process of significant innovation. But desperation is not the only force that can trigger this. It is also possible (and by far preferable) to act out of inspiration. As Mercury now links to the great Jupiter-Uranus opposition, allow yourself to be led by that today. Call 1902 222 500. LEO JUL 24AUG 23 Agatha Christie engaged her readers by giving clues and hints whilst scattering a few red herrings around. Only at the end, in the inevitable library scene, would her audience of would-be sleuths discover how well, or badly, they had been following the true plot. The links Mercury now makes whilst in your sign bring a decisive development in your life. A denouement. You may well be about to find out that many things are not at all as you had once thought. But thats OK, for the reality is due to prove far more suitable than the fantasy. February brings a rare opportunity for change. Call 1902 222 500. CAPRICORN DEC 22JAN 20 To envisage a possibility is not an automatic guarantee of the ability to create a possibility. To make our way successfully through life, we need a little more than a keen imagination and a capacity for wishful thinking. But its a good place to start. If you can see something in your minds eye now, you may be surprisingly near to the ability to turn this into a reality. As Mercury links to your rulers opposition with Uranus, embrace your creativity today. Its not just a means of distraction; its potentially the source of a breakthrough. Call 1902 222 500.
