Forecasts for week beginning Saturday September 28, 2013

By Jonathan Cainer

We are still more than a month away from the next in the series of seven squares between Uranus and Pluto. The first was in June 2012. We’ve had two more since then and the fourth comes up in November. So why mention it now? Because in astrology, the weeks just prior to an alignment always prove most powerful. If October shows you that you can no longer trust promises and principles that once seemed sacrosanct, the alignment is working its magic. Around the globe, people are escaping repressive aspects of the past and redefining values in glorious ways.

ARIES (March 21 – April 20)
You have natural resilience, an impressive ability to put up with the kind of pressure that others simply can’t cope with. This allows you to accomplish great things. But it also means that every so often you exhaust yourself. You’ve been through a lot lately. You now have good reason to be tired. But you will soon also find that you have a good reason to feel elated. Despite all that you find worrying both in your personal world and in the wider world too, life for you is about to get much easier this month.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21)
Don’t look at where you have been. Never mind where you are going. Where are you right now? Look at your circumstances in isolation. Forget what led you to them or where you would like them to lead you to. Now, either you are somewhere that is entirely untenable without an explanation, a justification or even an aspiration… or you are somewhere that’s just fine, just as it is. If it’s the latter, why go any further? If it’s the former, why stay any longer? As you become clear and decisive this month, many problems will fade away.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 22)
People believe what they want to believe, which is why they see only what they want to see. How then, can they ever be persuaded of anything? That’s easy. Just find out what it is that they want to believe and show them something that seems to support this – but also suits your purposes. Now you know the secret, here’s a question. Who has recently been subtly manipulating you? This month, it’s time to look again at some of what’s been recently suggested. It could all mean something much more positive.

CANCER (June 23 – July 23)
A great deal is possible this month. You can allow yourself to be ambitious, adventurous and enthusiastic. You won’t find out how much you are capable of unless you try. If you do try and, despite your very best efforts, you run into some insurmountable obstacle, you will still gain from making the attempt. You will shift something. You will open at least one locked door. That, in itself, will constitute highly worthwhile progress. And it will mean that your next attempt is far more likely to succeed. Just keep going.

LEO (July 24 – August 23)
There are a hundred different roads you can go down. At least ninety-nine of these, though, lead nowhere that you would especially like to be. They look attractive only because your own path is now taking you through tricky territory. You’re starting to regret a particular choice; yet you always knew that it would not always be easy to stick to your plan. Diversions and distractions will only lead you round in a circle. This month brings you a chance to see why you first made a commitment and then a real opportunity to renew this.

VIRGO (August 24 – September 23)
What’s the difference between stress and excitement? Enjoyment! If something is fun, it’s not a problem – no matter how busy it keeps you or how much energy it takes out of you. If something grates on you, it will tire you out and wear you down – even if it’s minor, momentary, imaginary or irrelevant. In your life now, there is an issue that seems daunting or a hurdle that seems insurmountable. But this month, you are going to find a way to feel much happier about this situation and thus to become much more successful.

LIBRA (September 24 – October 23)
‘When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.’ So said Sherlock Holmes. You may not be a detective, but you are on the trail of a mystery – and this month, if you keep on asking the right questions, you’ll get answers that make proper sense. You face a perplexing dilemma. There’s no obvious easy way to solve a problem. But if you keep your wits about you, you’ll see a brilliant way to proceed. The impossible is… impossible. But the improbable? That’s more feasible than you think!

SCORPIO (October 24 – November 22)
A helpful conversation will soon do much to put your mind at rest. Someone knows something about the issue you are trying to resolve. The information is not secret, nor is it being deliberately withheld. All you have to do is ask the appropriate question to the appropriate person. Or maybe, you don’t even have to go that far. It may well be sufficient, this month, merely to raise a particular topic. What ensues quite naturally and easily from a series of crucial conversations will prove very useful and revealing.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23 – December 21)
Do you seek enlightenment? Here’s how to find it this month. Go straight past the door marked Doubt, along the Corridor of Confusion. Turn down the Hallway of Hope and then look out for the Revelation Room. Light shines brightly through the curtain that hangs in front of it. When you first go into it, you may need a while to adjust. Don’t be put off by the darkness. It’s very common to feel that you can see nothing just moments before you suddenly realise that actually, you can see almost everything! Have faith.

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 20)
There are battles to be fought this month. None of these, though, involve other people. They are inner struggles. Deeply personal conflicts between conscience and desire or fear and inspiration. It is all too easy to be overwhelmed by a negative impulse. If you suspect that the worst may be about to happen, do not let go for an instant of your belief in the best. As soon as you overcome the enemy within that seeks to undermine your sense of self-worth, you will conquer every other obstacle in your path.

AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 19)
You have become conditioned to compromise. You have cut your coat according to your cloth and have set your expectations reasonably. Usually now, you try to be practical. All this is very laudable, but it is not necessarily appropriate under the current cosmic climate. It is very important to indulge in far-fetched practices and explore some wildly ambitious dreams. There’s a genuine chance that, if you do this, some of these hopes and wishes will be fulfilled. Don’t play it too safe this month. Be honest about what you want.

PISCES (February 20 – March 20)
What makes life truly worth living? What’s the best, highest, most wonderful thing a human can aspire to? And, how good does it have to get… and for how long? There are some who believe that if you can manage to spend just a minute of your life, in a state of deep and true enlightenment, the richness of the experience will compensate for decades of darkness. There are others that say that one good idea can profit you for a decade. This month brings a rare and delightful reminder of just how good ‘good’ can get.
