This is problematic, because you trust your judgment and usually favour your own ideas over other peoples. In fact, you dont really like your opinions being challenged. And although you can see how this change might benefit them, youre struggling to see how it will positively affect your life. Yet, as Venus and Uranus link, an innovative idea is worth listening to. Be as open-hearted and open-minded as you can be. You might find yourself heading in an unexpected and positive new direction. Go to ozfree.cainer.com SCORPIO OCT 24NOV 22 This special weekly forecast focuses on love and relationships. But sometimes, its impossible to separate these areas of life from work, money and luck. This week, as your ruler, Venus, forms a harmonious angle with Uranus, such interconnectedness will be impossible to ignore. In your practical life, expect productive innovation. In your romantic life, the cosmos highlights sensuality. Thats quite a combination of energy. Whats more, success in either sphere boosts success in the other. Be ready to take advantage of the surprises that lie ahead. Free audio and video forecasts. Go to ozfree.cainer.com TAURUS APR 21 MAY 21 Under normal circumstances, when your traditional ruler, Saturn, opposes the sun, you might expect a gentle warning about not falling prey to self-doubt. So whats different this week? Well, shortly after the aforementioned event, your modern ruler, Uranus, forms a helpful link with Venus and offers an antidote to any stress. But theres more to it than that. You can expect a healthy burst of sensitivity too. As your creative qualities are highlighted, you can easily deal with any relationship issues (romantic or not) and bring a spark of delight into your world. Go to ozfree.cainer.com AQUARIUS JAN 21FEB 19 The cosmos has a gift for you this week. Its something of a surprise. As your ruler, the sun, lines up to oppose Saturn (the great cosmic teacher), you might normally expect to find yourself feeling slightly on edge. But the surprise will easily outweigh any awkwardness. Here comes the clarity youve been missing. That ability to prioritise is extremely valuable. As you recalibrate your expectations, youll discover the determination and faith youve been missing. This is the week when your next step becomes crystal clear. Free audio and video forecasts. Go to ozfree.cainer.com LEO JUL 24AUG 23 Although you face a challenging situation, youre not as powerless as you think. You might appear to be facing an obstacle, yet appearances can be deceptive. Theres a lot you can do. You can start by pulling a few strings and calling in a favour or two. Be as creative as you can be. Reach out to people who can advise you and look back at previous experiences. Your past holds the clue to a happier future. As Venus (love) and Uranus (innovation) trine this week, you can tap into your ingenuity and easily smooth out any issues in your emotional life. Our gift free audio and video forecasts. Go to ozfree.cainer.com ARIES MAR 21APR 20 Life isnt always easy. Fortunately, the cosmos offers little gifts that help ease us through challenging times. The good news is that this week its your turn. As your ruler, Venus, forms a harmonious link with innovative Uranus, it creates a celestial situation that carries several promises. Youll find yourself able to balance your emotional life with the other calls on your time. And this will result in a series of beneficial (perhaps even romantic) moments. Surprises await. As long as youre prepared to go with them, youre in for a great week. Free audio and video forecasts. Go to ozfree.cainer.com LIBRA SEP 24OCT 23 Dont throw the baby out with the bathwater. This proverb could be the guide to your week. In the process of streamlining your life, its tempting to gather up lots of items and just clear them out. The danger is that you might inadvertently discard something of value. The same goes for emotional ties and relationships that have faded. Although creating more space is important (and necessary), be on the look-out for a hidden treasure you might have overlooked. It deserves a second chance. Free audio and video forecasts. Go to ozfree.cainer.com CANCER JUN 23JUL 23 Even if you dont know exactly how it happened, someone in your inner circle seems to have lately formed a wrong impression of you. It might be due to a simple misunderstanding or some misinformation theyve received. Following the suns link to your ruling planet, this week brings an unexpected chance to set the record straight. The cosmos offers an opportunity to rewrite a script so that youre seen in your very best light. You might be surprised by how swiftly you can change a relationship to one of mutual appreciation. Fresh possibilities await. Go to ozfree.cainer.com CAPRICORN DEC 22JAN 20 Even the best intentions sometimes go awry. How often have you started a big project only to get caught up in minor details as your time ebbs away? Comedian Steven Wright nailed the problem with his witty self-deprecating one-liner: Im writing a book. Ive got the page numbers done. You have one big task ahead of you and even though much good will flow from its completion, youve had trouble getting started and maintaining momentum. This week brings you the creative energy you need and support from a surprising (and inspiring) source. Free audio and video forecasts. Go to ozfree.cainer.com GEMINI MAY 22JUN 22 Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up. Pablo Picasso knew what he was talking about. It was a trick one of the greatest artists of all time managed to achieve throughout his adult life. If it feels as if the cares of the world are on your shoulders, its time to put them down and play to put yourself first and rediscover your hidden dreams. Whether you choose to pick up a paintbrush or try some other way of connecting with your free-spirited creative side, youll put your cares in perspective and find reasons to smile. Go to ozfree.cainer.com SAGITTARIUS NOV 23DEC 21 It doesnt take much to transform something mundane into something special. A dash of chilli oil added to a soup can lift it to new heights. A flash of colour in a decorating scheme can brighten a dull room. And all musicians know the value of a short burst of sound from an unusual instrument. This week, as Venus and Uranus link, you can control the level of drama in your life. Youll find that less is more. It wont take much: a simple gesture could be enough to refresh a relationship, take a friendship to a new level or bring about the change you desire. Go to ozfree.cainer.com VIRGO AUG 24SEP 23 Few things are more irritating than someone telling you to calm down or not to worry. Even if theres nothing wrong, its enough to raise anyones blood pressure. But the vibe youre currently sending out means that people seem to think you need that kind of advice. The fact that its well-intentioned doesnt mean its not infuriating. This week, as Venus links with innovative Uranus, you get a chance to set the record straight. Youre about to do the right thing at exactly the right moment. You can quell someones doubts and spark a positive connection.
