Im thinking of selling my flat should I wait? Fiona. Hi Fiona, Jonathan always said that rather than being about frustration, delay and impaired communication, Mercury retrograde is (or should be) concerned with renegotiation, arbitration, realisation and inspiration. Id add that the moon has a strong bearing on our sense of home, so as Mercury turned direct last week, its probably safe to start house hunting. In one specific area of your world, the ante is being upped and the stakes are being raised just as the chips are coming in. Fortunately, youre multi-talented and able to cope with exciting challenges at the same time as you deal with practicalities. Youre able to surf the seas of opportunity while keeping your nets primed to catch any metaphorical fish. Today, if you find yourself balancing on a really big wave, just remember that you know what to do. Stay balanced and youll enjoy the ride. Theres excitement in the skies in a week of celestial action. Call 1902 222 500. ARIES MAR 21APR 20 In order to be successful we need to be courageous. There are times when we have to decide that it doesnt matter if something goes wrong. Its possible to care too much. Even if it feels as if youre walking on thin ice, theres a danger that by taking so much consideration about each step you take, that youre spending longer than you need in one particular spot; making yourself more vulnerable. Today, you need to trust that something is going to work out right. Because it is. Maximise your luck as the planets make creative alignments. Call 1902 222 500. GEMINI MAY 22JUN 22 Some people love to tell us that we cant get something for nothing. They repeat the idea like a mantra, saying it to anyone and everyone, obviously with no expectation of receiving anything in return for their wisdom. Yet even their choice to repeat this old saying is something, which theyre giving away for nothing; which just goes to show that they dont know what theyre talking about. You dont need to be suspicious of something that seems to be given away freely today. Make the most of this weeks astrological opportunities. Call 1902 222 500. SCORPIO OCT 24NOV 22 Its all very well dreaming of what youd do if the situation were different but its nowhere near as helpful as considering what you should do in this scenario. Before we can interact with an imaginary future, we must first conquer the here and now. The key to tomorrows triumphs lies in the plans we deal with today. So, reach for the stars. Be ambitious. Be canny. Be resolute. Tick boxes. Solve problems. Put the world to rights. And, even when you think youve missed your chance, try just once more. Make the most of this weeks astrological opportunities. Call 1902 222 500. TAURUS APR 21 MAY 21 Some celebrities have a magnetism and charisma that can light up a room. But theres no need to restrict this ability to the people we see in magazines and movies; even in our day-to-day lives we encounter such magic. We all know someone whose very presence seems to bring out the best in everyone. Would it come as any surprise if I told you that, to many people, you are just such an individual? Theres no need to hide behind modesty today not when it brings the recognition you deserve. Theres excitement in the skies in a week of celestial action. Call 1902 222 500. LIBRA SEP 24OCT 23 Like politicians, people who sell cars have our best interests at heart. They generously toil away, in slavish pursuit of our greatest needs. They have the ability to magic the perfect car out of thin air and its ours all for the very reasonable price of blah, blah, blah. Um. Well, perhaps not. Keep an eye out, today, for altruistic announcements that, in reality, only serve the speakers purpose. Whatever you do, dont let your desire for a perfect solution lead you the wrong way up the garden path. Maximise your luck as the planets make creative alignments. Call 1902 222 500. SAGITTARIUS NOV 23DEC 21 A recent event has helped to revive your enthusiasm and sense of hope. Youve been surprised by the arrival of an inspiring possibility and are even beginning to believe in the possibility of more magic becoming available. Theres a good chance that youre right to hope for more. Even though not everything will work quite the way you want it to, youll be able to build on the foundations of your success and grow justifiably more hopeful about what lies round the next corner of your life. Theres excitement in the skies in a week of celestial action. Call 1902 222 500. CANCER JUN 23JUL 23 Every single one of us has a closet containing a skeleton or two. Some people are very good at securely bolting the door so that they almost manage to forget the secrets that lurk in their past. Other folk seem to have glass-fronted closets, on which they shine bright lights, so that the bones are lit up for everyone to see. You dont need to shine a light on anything from your past that doesnt benefit you. But, it might be wise to check to see if youre hiding something that needs looking at. Maximise your luck as the planets make creative alignments. Call 1902 222 500. VIRGO AUG 24SEP 23 Have you used every app on your phone? Every programme on your computer? Every setting on your tumble drier? Technology is evolving at a pace that far outstrips the capacity of the average user. Most of us simply respond by learning vaguely how to do the basics and by sticking to a tried and tested formula. Youll need more than that today, though. In order to cope with a new challenge, you need to step into uncharted territory. Fortunately, you have absolutely nothing to fear. Make the most of this weeks astrological opportunities. Call 1902 222 500. AQUARIUS JAN 21FEB 19 People sometimes swear that they will take their secrets to the grave; that theyll go to the ends of the earth to hide what needs to be hidden and theyll do a good job of it, too. Other folk are less resolute. Theyre not so good at keeping things to themselves and in moments of weakness, they drop hints and reveal clues. If you feel as if youre reading between the lines today, its because someone else has enabled you to do so. If you lay the groundwork, a truth will be revealed. Make the most of this weeks astrological opportunities. Call 1902 222 500. LEO JUL 24AUG 23 It feels as if something needs to happen. Tension is mounting and pressure is building unless a change occurs, there could be an eruption. It might be easy for a casual onlooker to think that all is well and that whats going to happen will work out okay, but when youre in the thick of it, you need to take steps to ensure that any fallout will be controllable. Today, you can take action that will create a satisfying safety net. Bear in mind too, that the sense of urgency is less dramatic than it seems. Theres excitement in the skies in a week of celestial action. Call 1902 222 500. CAPRICORN DEC 22JAN 20 Even though they tell us not to push our luck, sometimes theres no other choice. After all, you cant just wait around until luck decides to push you who knows how long that would take? Despite the warnings of neer-do-wells, luck likes to be pushed and, at the right moment, just a slight touch is enough to get it moving in the right direction. This is such a time for you. Unless youre ready to set off on a big new adventure, all you need to do is to gently nudge luck today. Then enjoy the ride. Maximise your luck as the planets make creative alignments. 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.
