Forecasts for week beginning May 26, 2012.
By Jonathan Cainer
Mystic tradition tells us that whenever there’s one eclipse, shortly followed by another, it is as if a giant, invisible portal opens over the Earth, allowing clear and easy exchange between different etheric realms. Last week brought an annular solar eclipse. Next week, people in some parts of the world (including Australia) will witness a powerful penumbral lunar eclipse. The Sun and Moon are currently aligned – not just in two dimensions, but in three. Thus, this week, we are betwixt and between eclipses. Those who wish to try to make the impossible possible may wish to consider themselves blessed!
ARIES (March 21 – April 20)
How can you hope to know what is going to happen next in your favourite TV series, unless you actually watch it? You can’t just guess. If the show were that predictable, you wouldn’t be interested in it. Nor can you hope to follow the plot by watching the comments of other viewers when they appear on the internet. It won’t supply the depth of engagement that you need to feel. It is the same with the situation you are now tempted to step back from. Really, you need to stick with it. You will yet be glad that you did.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21)
Ever seen a guardian angel? Or a wish-granting fairy? Can you produce proof of spirit guides and other such etheric assistance? Of course not. Such things are invisible. But that does not, ipso facto, mean they do not exist. Ever seen electricity? What does gas look like? Many hidden powers operate around us and some are very real. I make this point because I feel it is so important that you, this week, make more allowance in your plans for the presence of a little extra helping hand. Even if you can’t see it, it’s there!
GEMINI (May 22 – June 22)
Thirty years ago, when I began writing zodiac forecasts, I would often quote the phrase from many a fairytale about how they ‘all lived happily ever after’. I’d explain that none of us ever really does that. It is an unrealistic expectation. I’m older now. I have started to think differently. When I see astrological outlooks of the kind that you are now benefiting from, it confirms my new opinion. Good outcomes can happen. Their impact can last, if not ever after, for a very long while! This week, you will start to see what I mean.
CANCER (June 23 – July 23)
The world never ceases to supply us with reasons to worry. Just as nature gives rise to great trees, wonderful plants and amazing animals, it applies similar standards of quality control for those causes of concern. It makes them look good and seem convincing. We need them to have an air of authenticity, so that we can rise properly to the challenge they pose us. What is that challenge? To come up with an even better reason why we really don’t need to be so worried. That’s all you have to do this week… and you will!
LEO (July 24 – August 23)
Some children are ‘planned’. Others are ‘accidents’ or ‘surprises’. Does nature hold any of us in higher or lower esteem depending on those circumstances? The cosmos loves us all equally. We are all ‘meant to be here’. We are all entitled to just as much heavenly help. But to get that help, we have to do just one thing. We have to at least recognise the possibility that the universe actually does care about us and then ask it for assistance. You have an exceptionally strong astrological outlook now. Trust that and put it to work.
VIRGO (August 24 – September 23)
Blue? Pink? Are there not a whole range of dramatically different colours that come under these headings? Designers and aesthetes are sure of this. You have got to get specific. You have got to know, see and understand the distinctions. And those same subtle levels of perception apply to almost everything (and everyone) in this world. Why am I telling you this? You are a Virgo, you already know. This week, you are holding out for a very particular requirement. Rightly so! You will get it if you really need it.
LIBRA (September 24 – October 23)
From the day you first arrived, you have been looking round at the world and wondering what to make of it. You keep developing theories. You try them out for size. For a while, they fit. Then you outgrow them. You need new ways to help you understand where you need to be, who you need to be with and what you should do next. Did you ever really think that one day, you would find the ultimate answer? Something deep is changing in you now. Don’t fear this process, you can only benefit from it.
SCORPIO (October 24 – November 22)
Why are some people so annoying? Why do they think such crazy thoughts and say such stupid things? Why do we listen to them? Why can’t we just ignore what we don’t want to hear? What drives the difficult dynamic which now creates such tension in your life? Even if your own part in this is small, it is the only factor that you can easily adjust. And you can make a difference. Your astrological outlook this week, speaks of the chance to instigate a major change, first in yourself, then in your situation.
SAGITTARIUS (November 23 – December 21)
Sometimes, in an effort to keep pressure at bay, we create all kinds of pressure for ourselves! We think, ‘I really don’t want this to happen, so I had better do that.’ The plan we end up following proves so problematic that we may as well have just sat and waited for the trouble. Anyway, it might not even have happened. We can’t build an ark every time we see a raindrop. Be aware this week of smart ideas and options. But if a passing worry comes to visit, give it a bed for the night, not permanent residence in your home!
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 20)
Great military leaders say you can’t fight a war on several fronts at once. You must decide which territory you are willing to sacrifice and then choose the ground that you are going to defend at all costs. That’s where your resources must be focused. I’m not trying to suggest that you are under attack; but something is making you feel defensive. The more trouble you encounter in one area, the more you feel you can see potential trouble elsewhere. Relax. Pick your priorities and you will yet end this week with a victory.
AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 19)
It is here! It has arrived! We must welcome it for we have been waiting for this patiently, for so long. What is it? What do I mean? Don’t tell me you don’t know! Look around. This is it. The future! You thought it would never come. Does it seem so different from the recent past? Look at it again. Look more deeply into it. Look, too, at what you may be able to make of a real opportunity now. Here is a chance that you deserve and a gift that you have every reason to be grateful for. It is going to be a very good week.
PISCES (February 20 – March 20)
When you were a kid, did you ever try walking backwards down the street? That’s not such a hard thing to do if you have got friends with you and you trust them. But it is a tricky challenge to rise to if you are on your own. Aren’t you doing that now? Aren’t you looking at the past when you should be looking at the future? Shouldn’t you turn and face the road ahead? If you fear that you will see something unpleasant or problematic, that’s all the more reason to look carefully. You will yet be glad that you opened your eyes.
