Or special quality pixels. Theres a magical aura shining over your cosmic outlook, and, when you read this, youll mysteriously know exactly what to do to make the best of your week. Voila. Its worked. Youre feeling better now arent you? With a blue moon, and Venus, your ruling planet, in your sign, even if the above seems to be unlikely, theres every reason to suggest that youre in for a surprisingly enlightening (and enjoyable) time. Trust that. Aries Mar21-Apr20Cancer Jun23-Jul23Libra Sep24-Oct23Capricorn Dec22-Jan20 If nothing ever changes, surely everything just stays the same? Suppose theres just a minor alteration? Could that eventually transform everything that seems to be stuck? Some people are so afraid of the unknown that they worry about the tiniest of fluctuations, imagining that theyll trigger a landslide of change. Adventurous Aries know its not quite so simple. You understand that a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Even if you cant move a mountain this week, you can definitely start shifting a few stones. Would you mind signing here please? I presume you agree with the terms and conditions? Sorry? You didnt realise there were any? Is that a problem? Surely you dont bother to read all the small print when you sign up to websites do you? In reality, we never really know exactly what were letting ourselves in for when we commit to anything. And you dont need to bother about that this week. As the blue moon heightens your sensitivity, rather than being bogged down by details, if you follow your hunches, you wont go wrong. For some people success is the only thing that seems to drive them forwards. They finish one task, then immediately start on another one. They dont seem to care much about what theyre doing; as long as theyre engaged with something challenging, they dont have time to think about how fulfilled they are. Blow the worlds biggest bubble? Design a square egg? If you set your mind to it, you can achieve something extraordinary this blue moon week. But it will only be valuable if you apply your heart as well as your head. Taurus Apr21-May21Leo Jul24-Aug23Scorpio Oct24-Nov22Aquarius Jan21-Feb19 Why would you bother to run when you can walk? Why walk if you can saunter? Why saunter if you can just put your feet up and wait until your needs are met? There are times when its smart to make lots of effort; to fight a corner or to push at a margin. And there are other times when we can just allow things to unfold. The blue moon signals a positive change. It doesnt mean your world will be challenge-free. But, if you refuse to take your problems too seriously, theyll be much easier to solve than you think. Spiritual folk talk about the importance of attuning with nature; that when were at one with the cosmos, life takes us naturally to where we need to be. Which is all well and good when things are going well. But not so easy when the universe seems to be throwing curveballs of drama our way. If you go with the flow, is there a risk that more trouble will come your way? The blue moon enables you to trust that even if a situation seems tense, it isnt as challenging as it seems. The more you relax, the more joy youll find this week. If youve got a good ear for music, you can tell the difference between a minor and a major key. But its not easy for anyone to be able to differentiate between a minor and a major issue. There are always factors that compromise our judgment. A trivial problem, for example, can seem like a big challenge when it triggers a series of difficult memories, or raises a concern weve been trying to suppress. All you need to know about this blue moon week, is that something that seems big is actually small and easy to deal with. Often, the most difficult ideas to grasp are the most obvious ones. We sometimes find it much easier to gaze into the distance than see whats happening right beneath our eyes. Youve been struggling to make sense of a bewildering set of circumstances. Youve been looking for a workable plan; a resolution that will satisfy everyone. Yet youve overlooked one basic but magnificent truth. The blue moon, in your sign, brings innovation and inspiration. A surprisingly easy solutions appearing. Your task, this week, is to recognise it. Gemini May22-Jun22Virgo Aug24-Sep23Sagittarius Nov23-Dec21Pisces Feb20-Mar20 Some issues arent worth thinking about. You can use up every last scrap of mental energy in an attempt to understand something or someone, but youre unlikely to gain much insight. Meanwhile, some mysteries can be easily understood. In this blue moon week, youll make important advances just by asking the right questions in the right way. The cosmos helps you differentiate between the issues that cry out for further understanding and those which its better to accept as they are. Dont let the past cloud your judgment this week. Does everything we do have to make sense? Are we really meant to be able to rationalise it all? Is there any space for impulsiveness, innovation, creativity and fun? Surely these things are important too? The danger of replacing magic with logic is that we lose more than we could ever hope to gain. Just because youre unable to explain why you feel excited about a situation doesnt mean you need to hold back. With the sun and Mars in your sign, and a blue moon, theres every chance your hopes will be fulfilled. Dare to dream. They say that a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. The problem, is that we dont always trust that process. Although experience shows us that perseverance carries us far, its not always easy to find the courage and energy to make the first move. The blue moon reboots your energy levels (and your enthusiasm) for a project youve been forced to lay to one side. Theres still a long way to go, but thats not a reason to feel daunted. Its time to be bold. Once you set off on this journey, rewards will soon follow. Ive seen fire and Ive seen rain. Ive seen lonely times when I could not find a friend, but I always thought that Id see you again. This reflective lyric was written by a fellow Piscean, James Taylor. I mention it because the blue moon brings an opportunity to re-evaluate a relationship. Love is always poignant; it contains moments of sadness as well as delight. Yet, as the sun enters your opposite sign, if you focus on the positive, youll find real, tangible reasons to celebrate. Happiness doesnt need to be tinged with regret. oscar cainer www.cainer.com For horoscope forecasts from Oscar by phone, call 1300 017 319. Max call cost $1.32 per minute, including GST.
