Its said that two canneries were competing for sales: one of them was producing white salmon, the other pink. Apparently, the producers of the white salmon marketed their product with the slogan guaranteed not to turn pink in the can. Their pink salmon competitors countered with: Guaranteed: No bleach used in the processing. Theres a smart way to make anything sound appealing. Dont be fooled by superficiality this weekend.

Unless, of course, youre concerned about what will happen if you fail to meet a deadline, and are seeking encouragement and reassurance. Even so, you may as well adopt the only attitude thats going to be helpful, and decide that no matter how seriously someone else seems to be taking a particular situation, you arent going to let it bother you so much. You have more power (and more reasons to relax) than you know. A brilliant offer completely free audio and video forecasts.

Its one thing if youre interested in the subject, and another thing entirely when youre working on something youre not remotely concerned about. Suddenly, even tiny marks on the wall look intriguing. Its amazing how easily we fritter away time when were really bored. After a while, we might even begin to wonder if we have concentration issues. This weekend, be inspired and take the path that most interests you. Be guided by your natural enthusiasm. Right here, right now Go to ozfree.cainer.com AQUARIUS JAN 21FEB 19 Oh Lord, its hard to be humble, when youre perfect in every way. I cant wait to look in the mirror, cause I get better looking each day. Its the lyric to a tongue-in-cheek old country song, which describes some of the attributes often ascribed to your zodiac sign. Yet, although youre a confident Leo, your confidence isnt unassailable. Which is a shame, because recently, youve been prone to self-doubt. The weekend brings an experience that helps you put that sense of lack behind you and allows you to have some fun. An amazing service Go to ozfree.cainer.com LEO JUL 24AUG 23 The Romans didnt invent their gods and goddesses; they copied them from the Ancient Greeks. Hermes became Mercury, and Aphrodite turned into Venus. The characters remained more or less the same, and their legacy and legends live on through, among other things, astrology. Your ruling planet, Mars, was linked with the Greek god Ares. As it aligns with Pluto this weekend, you can engineer meaningful, lasting change. Just remember to follow the Romans example; dont throw the baby out with the bathwater. Ready now... completely free audio and video forecasts. Go to ozfree.cainer.com ARIES MAR 21APR 20 Hello and welcome to the education platform for Aspiring Tightrope Walkers. Todays the day youve been waiting for. Weve talked about tightrope walking, weve visualised it, weve learned all about the distribution of weight, the need for patience, and the physical and mental finesse that are integral components of the craft. Now its time to do it for real. Okay that isnt quite true. No ones asking you to walk a real-life tightrope, this weekend. Nevertheless, in regards to a sensitive topic, getting the balance right is crucial. Unmissable gift Go to ozfree.cainer.com LIBRA SEP 24OCT 23 Will you do the right thing this weekend? Or will that, to some degree, depend on who youre trying to please? After all, you dont want to get it right in the eyes of someone who has a penchant for getting it wrong. And suppose youre not clear about whether youre getting it right or not? How will you know which yardstick to adhere to? Whose needs do you need to prioritise? Where there has lately been doubt and confusion, theres about to be conviction and lucidity. New, exciting ideas are about to replace old, worn-out ones. Oscars gift Go to ozfree.cainer.com CANCER JUN 23JUL 23 Would you please stand to welcome this important day in the yearly calendar. Its Friday the 13th, and we need to give it the respect its due. If we greet it with a fanfare, and lay out the red carpet, it might pass by and move on to other, less respectful individuals. Make sure youre careful about how you lay the carpet, though; you dont want to inadvertently create any lumps that unluckier folk might trip over. Fortunately, both today, and this weekend, you need have no fear of any kind of superstition. Youre luck is in. Especially for you Go to ozfree.cainer.com CAPRICORN DEC 22JAN 20 Paramhansa, which means supreme swan, is a title given to Hindu spiritual teachers who have achieved samadhi, a supreme yogic state. Swans are renowned, across different cultures, for their wisdom, grace, and faithfulness. They mate for life, and are ferociously loyal to their partner. Can you achieve this transcendent state of calm, confident reflection? Of course. Although youve never been an ugly duckling, a time of transformation is coming. As youll see this weekend, youre slowly but surely coming into your own. Dont miss out completely free audio and video forecasts. Go to ozfree.cainer.com GEMINI MAY 22JUN 22 Are we to blame nature or nurture for our intelligence...or lack thereof? Behavioural and clinical psychologists have been debating this issue for ever. I cant speak for either of them, but I can promise that the zodiac doesnt come into it. No one sign is any smarter than another. But that doesnt mean there arent times when our minds are sharper, or clearer than those of our peers. If that doesnt yet make sense, it soon will. Your celestial helper has sprinkled you with fairy dust this weekend make the most of it. Try this out Go to ozfree.cainer.com SAGITTARIUS NOV 23DEC 21 Imagine the problems youd have if you suddenly sprouted wings. How, for instance, would you ever carry anything? Even a backpack would be a struggle to fit on your back unless someone invented one with specially adapted wing straps through which your feathery appendages could protrude. With Mercury, Venus and Mars in Virgo, your levels of kindness and compassion are reaching new heights and your angelic qualities are shining through. Just try to find a way to carry spare provisions dont forget to take care of you. Discover the inner you Go to ozfree.cainer.com VIRGO AUG 24SEP 23 They say that its better to be wise than to be right. This idea stumped me when I first heard it. Surely it cant be wise to be wrong? Yet, sometimes, wisdom means stepping back from an unwinnable argument, knowing when to conserve energy, and understanding which hills are worth fighting for. Whoevers able to do that is the true victor. You know yourself well enough not to need to be seen as the winner of a battle. Dont waste your energy trying to prove your point this weekend. Youre powerful enough to stand back.
