Dont we realise that life often does that all by itself? Why add fuel to the fire? Some people believe that if the cosmos sees that theyre struggling already, it will take pity on them and refrain from putting any more problems in their path. Yet thats not how the universe works. The Jupiter-Neptune link brings a chance to take things off your loaded plate. If a shortcut presents itself today, take it. Even if you dont usually call your in-depth prediction, SCORPIO OCT 24NOV 22 Some situations are so intense that they eclipse everything. If you found yourself facing a grisly bear, your work problems would go flying out the window. The same can be said of pain.

Thats when we can see that our lives have real meaning. As Jupiter and Neptune link today, youre able to understand something that has been baffling you. As you continue to seek the truth, the answer you need will appear. Fulfil your dreams. Let the stars reveal your desires. AQUARIUS JAN 21FEB 19 Is there a particular topic thats close to your heart that you cant help but feel passionate about? So much so that as soon as anyone mentions it, you cant stop yourself from expressing your thoughts? While your enthusiasm is admirable, it becomes problematic when it takes over so that your time is no longer your own. The JupiterNeptune link offers a chance to stand back. You dont need to feel so vulnerable. You dont have to take someone elses problems on board any more. Take full advantage of the inspiring cosmic climate. Find solutions. LEO JUL 24AUG 23 It wasnt long ago that people aspired to be seen as respectable citizens. This involved minding their manners and being aware of good etiquette so that they were seen to be proper. How things have changed. Nowadays, were so relaxed and open-minded that theres no such thing as normal. Yet, when we cant tell what average is, how can we strive to be above it? Fortunately, as Jupiter and Neptune link today, you dont need to compare yourself to anyone. Just be true to you. Be ready for the powerful changes as the planets positively combine. ARIES MAR 21APR 20 When something looks and sounds and feels good, its got to be good, right? I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there are things that hit the above criteria, yet we indulge in them at a price. Donuts and pizzas spring to mind. Some people are happy only when theyre doing something they shouldnt do, and some folk get pleasure from painful experiences. So its hard to conclude that something that looks fine is fine. Yet, as Jupiter and Neptune link today, thats whats going on for you. Youve got lots to look forward to. Find hope and inspiration. LIBRA SEP 24OCT 23 I found my son watching Michael Jacksons video for Thriller the other day. He was mesmerised by the jerky, zombified movements and the dancing corpses. No wonder people consider zombies to be the scariest of all supernatural beings. They represent us, emptied of our consciousness and humanity. They reflect a human tendency to go through life without being awake to whats really going on. The Jupiter-Neptune link brings a wonderful awakening today. You can let go of a fear. How can you benefit from this weeks powerful astrological outlook? CANCER JUN 23JUL 23 When we need something big to change, the best thing to do is to change something. Anything. Even a tiny change can do the trick. It doesnt even need to be something in the physical realm; it can be a change of approach, a different expectation, an altered perspective. As Jupiter and Neptune link, you can resolve not to look at life in the same way youve been looking at it. Before you know it, the solutions will start to appear. You can start making a different future today. In a week of cosmic creativity, transform your life. CAPRICORN DEC 22JAN 20 With strains of flu hitting the headlines, its easy to get caught up in the pervasive anxiety. Yet its important to remember that even some of those who are in close contact with it are okay. The same is true for less physical malaises that seem to spread from person to person. When were feeling strong and looking after our mental wellbeing, pessimism passes us by. The Jupiter-Neptune link brings you a boost which will protect you from negativity today. Prepare to be inspired. You can use the celestial energy to create positive change. GEMINI MAY 22JUN 22 I dont suppose you happen to have the keys to the planet? If it starts slowing down, well need you to get into the engine room, put your foot on the accelerator and get it back up to speed again. What do you mean you dont know what Im talking about? Youre in charge, arent you? Whether you admit it or not, youre in a powerful position. Youve got control of a situation that could change yours and other peoples lives. As your ruler links with Neptune, you can make a deal-making decision. Capture the energy of the positively star-filled skies. SAGITTARIUS NOV 23DEC 21 Having a vivid imagination can be a mixed blessing. Its both a gift and a curse an exciting realm where dreams can be tried on for size and a black hole which we can disappear into. It depends on how you use it. Whats occupying yours today? An inspirational possibility? Or a debilitating fear? Our minds are just as capable of convincing us of negative illusions as positive ones. So, if youre going to believe anything today, make it positive. With the Jupiter-Neptune link, it might become a reality. In a week of exceptional cosmic activity, you can transform your world. VIRGO AUG 24SEP 23 When does a tiny detail become a defining component? What if Botticelli had chosen to paint Venus standing on a sandy beach rather that on a giant scallop shell? Suppose Beethoven had decided to write about sunrise rather than moonlightwhat would have happened to the Moonlight Sonata? As Jupiter links with Neptune, it highlights a detail that youve been concerned about. Youve been torturing yourself about whether something is important or not. Perspective is on its way. Take full advantage of the inspiring cosmic climate. PISCES FEB 20MAR 20 oscar cainer www.CAiNER.COM CALL 1300 017 319 Teletopia. Max call cost $1.32 per minute, including GST.
