Our errors prove were learning new skills and pushing the boundaries of what we know. They show that were innovatively supplanting old ideas with new ones. Even if we choose to follow a seemingly safer path, its still a sign that were learning from our experience, so were likely to be more effective. Youre in possession of new information. Mercurys change of signs means youre able to put it to good use. View your challenges in a new light and overcome them. SCORPIO OCT 24NOV 22 Sometimes, the difference between winning and losing comes down to the finest of margins. Just think, for example, about a project youve recently been involved with. You poured energy into it, did as much as you could possibly do, yet somehow it didnt quite work out as youd hoped. Should you see that as an unmitigated disaster? A sign that you should pack up for good? Or are you able, instead, to appreciate the value of what youve achieved? Dont be afraid to put yourself out there again. View your challenges in a new light and overcome them. TAURUS APR 21 MAY 21 I was reading about someone who was so worried about a spate of burglaries that they spent a fortune installing a state-of-the-art alarm system, complete with hidden cameras and motion sensors. The only problem? They were so concerned about protecting the actual alarm system that they spent even more money installing more security. You know the point Im trying to make. Try not to fall into a similar trap today. Taking precautions might be necessary, but theres a point where you need to trust. View your challenges in a new light and overcome them. AQUARIUS JAN 21FEB 19 Even when youre feeling doubtful about something, you can be reassuring. If youre afraid, you can offer protection to someone whos feeling more fearful. When youre thirsty, you can offer a drink to a fellow thirsty person. When youre poor, you can be generous with your time. Although this advice may appear to contradict common sense, being willing to fly in the face of convention changes our attitude and improves our wellbeing. Theres no need to let a problem get the better of you today. View your challenges in a new light and overcome them. LEO JUL 24AUG 23 We cant always trust what we see. Great magicians have built their careers on the fact that we tend to see what we think we should see rather than whats actually happening. So does this mean that we should mistrust whats going on before our very eyes? It depends on what were being shown and who is showing it. Mercurys change of signs indicates that youre being taken on a journey towards the truth. As long as you keep an eye open for unconscious bias, youll like what you discover. What does your heart really desire and can you achieve it? ARIES MAR 21APR 20 All over the world, people are employed doing things for others that they might not always do for themselves. Chefs cook for those who are too busy; dry cleaners launder; cleaners tidy houses; personal assistants manage peoples diaries. For those who are fortunate enough to be able to employ others to perform these tasks, their moral duty is to develop other skills that will be useful to the rest of society. Dont be tempted to delegate today. An upcoming mission is yours and yours alone. What does your heart really desire and can you achieve it? LIBRA SEP 24OCT 23 Its easy to brood over our mistakes. We do this because we think we might learn something new or because we think we should have done things differently. Yet we often overlook the greatest of our errors and close our minds to the decisions that we think are mistakes but which have brought us to where we are. As you now go through the rackety, lurching motions of a process, dont write anything off as failure. Things are unfolding exactly as they should. What does your heart really desire and can you achieve it? CANCER JUN 23JUL 23 Its reassuring to believe that theres a clear distinction between good and evil. Thats why we so enjoy stories about battles between heroes and villains. Not only do we like to think that pure goodness exists, but we want it on our side. Yet even evil sees itself as being good, and most things in our lives exist between the two extremes. Today, as Mercury settles into a new celestial home, it brings the opportunity to recategorise a difficult problem. Something tricky is turning out to be beneficial. What does your heart really desire and can you achieve it? CAPRICORN DEC 22JAN 20 No one obliges you to be reasonable. You dont have to be fair or act justly. There are plenty of folk who consider themselves immune from having to consider such social etiquette; they seem to get away with being utterly selfish and acting purely for their own self-interest. Yet you dont do the right thing because you feel its what you should do. You do it because it makes you feel good. As your ruler changes signs today, you can be confident that your noble plan is a good one. Will the dream youre chasing come true? Find out. GEMINI MAY 22JUN 22 Although there are times when you can be forthright and direct, there are others when you feel vague and noncommittal. There are some things that you dont like talking about and some situations that youre very uncomfortable in. Recently, youve found yourself repeatedly being stretched out of your comfort zone no wonder you want to get back to safe territory as soon as possible. As Mercury changes signs, it enables you to set something wrong back onto the right track. Relief is here. Will the dream youre chasing come true? Find out. SAGITTARIUS NOV 23DEC 21 The story of Pinocchio is over 150 years old. The original tale delighted the bambini of Italy; Disneys retelling brought joy to a generation of children affected by WWII and, since then, its been translated and adapted for kids all over the world. Of course, the main story remains unchanged: Pinocchios nose grows whenever he lies. In the real world, its not so easy to know whether people are telling the truth or not. Luckily for you, whatever you say will be taken at face value today. Will the dream youre chasing come true? Find out. VIRGO AUG 24SEP 23 Its easy to assume that the billionaire sitting in their mansion is better off than someone whos unsure about where theyre going to find a bed for the night. Yet just suppose that the wealthy person is about to receive devastating news while the poor person is about to find a winning lottery ticket? While you might think its safe to assume that a problem is impossible to solve because a crucial element is missing, Mercurys change of sign indicates that an opportunity is arising. Dont miss it. Will the dream youre chasing come true? Find out. PISCES FEB 20MAR 20 oscar cainer www.CAiNER.COM CALL 1300 017 319 Teletopia. Max call cost $1.32 per minute, including GST.
