He was deluded, and everyone supported his delusion. Imagine having the powers of those con men. Wouldnt it be great if you could tell someone something and they just believed you. This weekend, as Venus changes signs, you find yourself in a powerful position. Use it with care. Our gift to you completely free audio and video forecasts.

No one, as far as I know, saw any angelic beings when the Berlin Wall came down. Nor did our usual worries disappear. So, with all the challenges were facing, is it safe to assume optimistically that were moving on from the past towards a brighter future? As your ruler moves into a new sector of the sky you have a chance to reassess your own past. This weekend brings a positive, significant realisation. Our gift to you completely free audio and video forecasts. Go to ozfree.cainer.com TAURUS APR 21 MAY 21 Aquarians are known to be affable and easy-going. Yet these attributes are only part of the picture that makes you you. While its true that youre mellow, thats because youre good at convincing other people to see and do things your way. Youre far from being acquiescent or submissive you just understand the art of making a good compromise. This weekend, think twice if you find yourself being asked to sacrifice your ideals. Even if you end up rocking the boat, its important to stand your ground. Our gift to you completely free audio and video forecasts. Go to ozfree. cainer.com AQUARIUS JAN 21FEB 19 Theres a famous Laurel and Hardy scene in which the two gifted comics play a pair of delivery men tasked with moving a piano into a house that can only be accessed via a flight of steep stairs. Of course, everything they do creates more and more problems and gets them into even deeper trouble. While such situations are highly amusing to watch, theyre extremely frustrating when they occur in real life. This weekend, as Venus changes signs, a difficulty can be amusingly resolved.

Just the thought of being caught between a rock and a hard place is enough to make us anxious. It might help if someone who had been there and got the T-shirt, had reported back so that we knew what to expect. Things are seldom as bad as we think; and the worst is usually found in our imagination. This weekend, as your ruler links to Mercury, youll see that something that has been looming on your horizon turns out to be no trouble to deal with. Our gift to you completely free audio and video forecasts. Go to ozfree.cainer.com ARIES MAR 21APR 20 Librans are known for being fair-minded. Youre represented by the scales, and no matter the complexities involved, people rely on your ability to appraise both sides of any situation. Yet, sometimes, your determination to be fair to other folks principles means you end up being unfair to yourself. It would be easy to put everyone elses needs before your own this weekend. But, as Venus changes signs, it brings the confidence to see yourself as equally important. Honour your own wishes too. Our gift to you completely free audio and video forecasts. Go to ozfree. cainer.com LIBRA SEP 24OCT 23 The time machine is a relatively modern idea; the notion of travelling in time didnt exist in literature until H.G. Wells penned The Time Machine in 1895. Now that we have Doctor Who, Back to the Future and Busteds Year 3000, its hard to imagine that just 150 years ago, such imaginative possibilities were impossible. Yet we dont have to wait for any such invention to be able to access the limitless realms of time and space. Having an open mind this weekend brings an exciting possibility. Our gift to you completely free audio and video forecasts. Go to ozfree.cainer.com CANCER JUN 23JUL 23 You enjoy striving for true excellence. Yet, although youre steady, capable and consistent, part of you loves spontaneity. The trouble with this is that perfection sometimes calls for a degree of creative ingenuity that borders on risk. And even the smallest risky factors make it hard to deliver predictable results. So you often curb your enthusiasm. This weekend youre wondering if you really dare put your heart and soul into something. With Venus in your sign, it looks as if you have no choice.

Go to ozfree. cainer.com CAPRICORN DEC 22JAN 20 Some people talk about the ratio between taking a risk and receiving a reward as if it were a scientifically proven formula. After all, they say that fortune favours the brave. Yet, as most gamblers will testify, being reckless often leads to regrets. Its one thing to have blind faith in a situation when everything feels desperate and theres no other option available. But its not always wise to overlook a sure-fire certainty in favour of an unpredictable adventure. Be as wise as you can be this weekend. Our gift to you completely free audio and video forecasts. Go to ozfree.cainer.com GEMINI MAY 22JUN 22 Keep on keeping on is one of those sayings thats meant to encourage us when times are tough. Personally, I prefer the motto keep on truckin, which is very much what youre required to do this weekend. Yet, of course, in these challenging times when were all staying at home as much as possible, the idea of trucking anywhere doesnt feel appropriate. So how are you going to keep yourself motivated? As Mars and Mercury link, youll find an imaginative way to keep metaphorically moving. Our gift to you completely free audio and video forecasts. Go to ozfree.cainer.com SAGITTARIUS NOV 23DEC 21 The more we think about some issues, the more confusing they become. Is that because we have insufficient data? Or do we get stuck trying to navigate our way through a kind of informational excess? Although its easier said than done, you need to siphon off the specifics, dispense with the details, and bring everything back to basics this weekend. Its not easy to engage your critical faculties when youre in a rush. Yet, if you take some time out, youll find the solution you require. Our gift to you completely free audio and video forecasts. Go to ozfree.cainer.com VIRGO AUG 24SEP 23 If Mary Poppins was right and a spoonful of sugar really does help the medicine to go down, then why arent we swallowing it by the kilo? And, if taking things with a pinch of salt is such a good idea, why bother listening to the health experts? Perhaps everything in moderation is better good maxim to follow. With Venus settling into a new celestial home, it will be easy to get carried away with enthusiasm. Yet, if you use your boost of gusto with care, youll bring extra sweetness to your weekend.
