March 21 – April 20
People have strategies for solving problems. They break them into small parts. Then, they fix the first thing. Then the next. As they keep going, the problem gets smaller. Eventually, it’s so tiny it’s no longer problematic. It’s an ideal way of tackling issues — unless the thought of giving yourself a list as long as your arm makes you feel even worse than the idea of tackling a major objective. There’s always something to worry about. To deal with a concern, put anything that’s not critical to the back of your mind. And relax. How can you stay focused and happy? Your latest forecast will give you the help you need. Call 0906 751 5601.
April 21- May 21
See that cliff in the distance? If you get too close, there’s a danger you might step over it. Why should this bother you? Doesn’t life surround us with potentially hazardous items and situations?

So today, you can deal with any nervousness. Yes, you’re dealing with something new and unfamiliar. But you’ve got what it takes to succeed. There’s no need to worry. All you need is some guidance. Your latest forecast can help. Call 0906 751 5602.

May 22 – June 22
Some people choose rose-tinted glasses to see the world more optimistically. Others prefer blinkers — turning a blind eye to things they don’t want to see. But, no matter our preference, limited perspective is a survival mechanism. We’d be overwhelmed by life’s problems and possibilities without it. We modify our way of absorbing information to give ourselves time to digest what we need to know. If you haven’t got the full picture today, don’t panic. You’re in the processing stage. You’ll soon know all you need to know. Your latest forecast has encouraging news. Move towards a brighter future. Call 0906 751 5603.
June 23 – July 23
Night and day are two radically different sides of one marvellous whole. They can never be in the same place at the same time. The transient hours of dawn and dusk come about as one replaces the other. We take this routine so much for granted that we forget how closely it parallels our inner cycle of light and dark thoughts. They give our lives contrast and meaning. And they can’t exist at the same moment. The legacy of the New Moon offers you a choice. You can step out of the shadows and into the brightness of realistic hope. For excellent advice to guide you through the twists and turns ahead, call your latest week-ahead forecast: 0906 751 5604.
July 24 – August 23
There’s a reason why there are more questions than answers. Although some answers are so brilliant they reply to lots of different questions, many of them lead to more questions. Which raises a question! Are these kinds of answers really answers? Surely they’re just starting points for future rounds of inquiry! You ‘know’ when you’ve found a real solution to a problem. You can feel it in your bones. The New Moon, in your sign, brought clarity. Trust the answer you feel sure of, and go ahead and build on the foundation it creates. How can you stay focused and happy? Your latest forecast will give you the help you need. Call 0906 751 5605.
August 24 – September 23
With power planet Mars in your sign, you’re trying to do as much as possible. There are changes you want to make . . . and you’re trying to take steps to implement them. Balls are rolling. Yet speed isn’t always the best way to solve issues. It doesn’t guarantee things are done as well as possible. Or that the best possible decisions are made. Some processes benefit from being allowed to unfold. Some things get clearer when you take time to do some research. You can afford to take the pressure off and do what you can today. There’s no need to worry. All you need is some guidance. Your latest forecast can help. Call 0906 751 5606.
September 24 – October 23
There are only so many times a conversation can be repeated before it gets irksome. Which is why you’re feeling frustrated. You keep getting pulled into a discussion you’ve had many times before. In the aftermath of the New Moon, you have a choice. You can stick to the familiar routine, or you can start doing things differently. The latter choice might not make you popular. It might ruffle the feathers of someone who finds the repetition comforting. But eventually, they’ll be grateful. If something isn’t right, go ahead and change it. Your latest forecast has encouraging news. Move towards a brighter future. Call 0906 751 5607.
October 24 – November 22
We’re sharing planet Earth with more than eight billion other people. Which makes you wonder how important any of us are. We might think that what we do is significant. But, if we put it in proportion, surely we have as much influence as a grain of sand on a giant beach? Actually, despite the maths, we DO all have a valid part to play. As your ruler, Pluto, moves towards a link with the Sun, you’re fully entitled to feel proud of a recent achievement. And feeling good about yourself spreads goodness around the world. Enjoy! For excellent advice to guide you through the twists and turns ahead, call your latest week-ahead forecast: 0906 751 5608.
November 23 – December 21
It’s perfectly natural, even healthy, to be wary about taking on new challenges. Caution is always advisable. Yet if we’re too anxious to upset the apple cart, we can end up with a pile of rotting apples. And unless you’re in the cider vinegar business, no one wants that kind of messiness in their world! It’s unlike you to be hesitant, which is why you’re uncomfortable. So make a decision and take a risk today. In the aftermath of the New Moon, fortune really does favour the brave. Make a decision. And go for it. How can you stay focused and happy? Your latest forecast will give you the help you need. Call 0906 751 5609.

December 22 – January 20
Are you in a position of command? Is someone on hand to fulfill your every demand? I’m joking of course . . . you don’t want to wield power over anyone. But feeling as if you have no influence doesn’t feel good. And you’re concerned that an upcoming development will leave you with even less control of a situation you care about. Yet all you’re losing is a misleading understanding of what’s actually going on. Newfound clarity will lead to a more accurate assessment. That, in turn, will increase your status and your chance of success. There’s no need to worry. All you need is some guidance. Your latest forecast can help. Call 0906 751 5610.
January 21 – February 19
Your ability to explain yourself and your plan isn’t in question. What’s essential is that you don’t just talk a good game, but that you play one. Just as a good poker player assesses their cards and knows how to work the other players, to stand the best chance of winning you need to check your hand, and consider the attributes of the other people involved. Try to take everything and everyone into consideration. Once you’ve assimilated all the information, use it to take steps towards making your brightest idea happen. Your latest forecast has encouraging news. Move towards a brighter future. Call 0906 751 5611.
February 20 – March 20
We have an extraordinary ability to blot out things we don’t want to see. Actually, we can do it with smells and noises too. We can get so used to the sound of a busy street that we don’t hear it. It’s only after a time away that we notice. Similarly with our routines. We adapt and adjust to cope with aspects of our lives that are less than ideal. In the legacy of the New Moon, you’re growing more conscious of something you should have objected to ages ago. Don’t berate yourself for not taking action until now. Just go for it. For excellent advice to guide you through the twists and turns ahead, call your latest week ahead forecast: 0906 751 5612.
