Forecasts for week beginning October 16, 2010.
By Jonathan Cainer.
Mars and Neptune form a right angle this week. Well, maybe I should qualify that comment. In reality, these two planets are mind-boggling distances apart. They only form a right angle in relation to us. But, in astrology, the view through the window of Spaceship Earth counts for everything. Those who read meaning into such patterns in the sky see in this alignment, a wonderful time of awakening. If you are hoping to make a dream come true… or to move on from a nightmare scenario and create a happier reality, your moment may be on its way.
LIBRA (September 24 – October 23)
We all make mistakes. Those of us who spend too much time watching and commenting on the errors of others are often amongst the most mistaken of all! If you’re being criticised, covertly or overtly now, it can only be a matter of time before your detractor hoists themselves on their own petard. And if you’re unhappy with someone else’s judgement? Then say something by all means. But say it just once, tactfully, to the person in question… don’t involve some third party in the tension. Then move on. It’s far more important now, to be adaptable, to be forgiving and to be positive… than to be “right.”
SCORPIO (October 24 – November 22)
“There’s a theory which states that if ever, for any reason anyone discovers what exactly the Universe is for and why it is here it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another that states that this has already happened.” The author, Douglas Adams, was talking about the world as a whole but he might have been talking about your personal world. It has changed a lot lately. Now, as Mars continues to pass through Scorpio, it is changing again. Here comes a strange but pleasing week. Ask the universe for what you want most. You may yet get it!
SAGITTARIUS (November 23 – December 21)
What have you got to hand? What’s on offer, naturally and easily? What can you achieve without having to try very hard? Whatever that is, it is all that is required. If you now have to struggle or strive, it can only be because you are inadvertently complicating something that may as well be kept simple. Think of yourself as a snake-charmer, playing the pipe of your personality in an effort to uncoil the cobra of confusion. This week, you can make it dance safely to your tune simply by trusting in your own powers of intellect and attraction.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 20)
Dead cows. Unmade beds. Bricks. Compromised religious icons. To an artist these are tickets to the kind of glorious fame that can only ever arise through controversy. The world is full of things that have different meaning for different people. So much so that it is a wonder we ever agree about the name of, or purpose for anything. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Value is in the pocket of the would-be purchaser. And your great chance this week makes sense only to you. So don’t go asking other people what they think. Respect your own insight, explore your own creativity and trust your own judgement.
AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 19)
Every so often we think something is fine and then we suddenly realise it is far from fine. Then, we wonder how we could ever have been so foolish. Yet we also spend a lot of time dealing with problems. We begin to feel as if we are wading through a never-ending stream of difficulties. Then suddenly, we realise that we are not in the trouble that we thought we were. After a moment or two of relief, we wonder how we could ever have been so foolish! A solution to an old problem is staring you in the face. Look more closely, this week, at what you have been more inclined to look beyond or to turn your attention away from.
PISCES (February 20 – March 20)
There is no such thing as a perfect relationship. The happy couples in the TV commercials are actors. So too are the stars of all those lovely romantic movies that we watch. I know you know this… but, hey! We all, occasionally, have to be reminded that real life is a roller-coaster. Recent events have caused you to question the role of a certain person in your world. You think you know now what needs to happen next. Don’t be so sure. You are steeling yourself for a big change. In fact, you only need a small change. A symbolic, subtle development could yet alter everything. And that’s what’s due to take place.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20)
We are living through a time of exceptional opportunity. We really must not feel, if we drop a ball or miss a chance, that we have blown it, big time, forever. We will eventually get where we need to be, even if we keep walking in the opposite direction. So strong and constructive are the current astrological influences that even if we make the wrong choices or jump to crazy conclusions, circumstances will conspire to turn us in our tracks. That’s true for all of us. It’s especially true for you, this week. You’re destined for some wonderful experiences and destiny won’t rest till she finds a way to deliver her golden gifts!
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21)
What are you “for”? What are you “against”? Recent events have begun to erode a sense of certainty that once seemed unshakeable. A problem? Not unless you are trying to freeze time and keep everything the same forever. You know, in your heart, you can go further, accomplish more and find more joy in life than you are currently doing. What you may not know is that an old, entrenched belief or opinion is preventing such progress. As you now see the good in what you once dismissed as bad and the downside of what once seemed ideal, you’re loosening up just in time to seize an exceptional opportunity.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 22)
Indestructible object. Irresistible force. Push. Shove. There goes the fan. Here comes the… Well, actually, it’s not like that. Intense events may be causing you to feel this week as if everything is crucial. It may seem as if you are at crunch point. You may feel you have reached the heart of Decision City and are travelling down a one-way street. Actually, though, you’ve got choice. You’ve got power. You don’t have to do anything that feels wrong – nor do you have to bring some ongoing process to an immediate conclusion. Resist the urge to think big, dramatic thoughts. Just take small, sensible steps and all will be fine.
CANCER (June 23 – July 23)
Whatever you’re worrying about, stop worrying. Whatever you’re regretting, stop regretting it. Whatever you’re afraid of… stop fearing it. Don’t just do this because I’m advising it. Do so because there really is no need. Do it in because you actively want to be motivated by inspiration rather than anxiety. Do so because you already have more to celebrate than you often realise… and because you are more loved, more appreciated and more respected than you know. Best of all, just do all this instinctively this week, as a series of encouraging developments finally start to set your mind at rest about a big issue.
LEO (July 24 – August 23)
How loyal do you want to be? At what point does dedication become devotion? When does a gently trusting “benefit of the doubt” become the uncritical acceptance of a preposterous suggestion? There is no specific cut-off point. This kind of boundary is rather like the line between the sea and the land. It ebbs and flows and, if you are walking with your eyes shut, it is easy to get your feet wet. This week, something will tell you when to pull back and when to march forward. As long as you look for that inner signal, you will make safe progress towards a dramatically improved bond of personal partnership.
VIRGO (August 24 – September 23)
Have you got a plan? Do you feel sure that you know what needs to happen this week? Do you have clear preferences and priorities? Oh dear. Oh well. You are not obliged to abandon all strategies and preconceived ideas… but over the coming few days, it will probably help! Mercury’s antagonistic alignment to Uranus implies you may be about to experience a few days of chaos, upheaval and profoundly positive, lasting change. Things are not about to turn out quite as you currently expect them to. But, if you can get over that and adapt, you will find that they are, nonetheless, due to turn out extremely well.
