Forecasts for week beginning Saturday June 7, 2014.

By Jonathan Cainer

This week, as we approach the last Full Moon before the Solstice, Neptune changes direction and Venus completes an opposition to Saturn. This speaks of a need, for us all, to review old priorities and perhaps put some of our more far-fetched fantasies on the back burner while we deal with pressing practical matters. But it also says something about the unexpected pleasure to be found in dealing with what might have once looked like a regrettable chore or an unavoidable obligation. Real magic is now best found through accepting what you might once have felt tempted to reject.

ARIES (March 21 – April 20)
Some people say, ‘life is just like a movie.’ Psychologists must agree, else why do they say that we all project so much on to one another? But, even if our time on earth is merely a passing show on a flickering screen, it feels very real. So too, do the themes that our films follow. Some of us seem to be in an action-packed adventure, others appear to be in a romance. Your story now, is about a bid for power. It tells of a potential rapid ascent to a position of great status. This week, you take on a big role.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21)
We can all be armchair experts. It’s easy to sit around watching other people whilst judging the choices they are making. Yet when we are actually sitting in the hot seat, it’s a very different story. Friends and companions may well have opinions about what you should or should not do this week. You don’t have an opinion; you have a need – a real, pressing, powerful one. You also have an opportunity. If you can only really see one solution you had better apply it and stop asking too many more questions.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 22)
Here comes a new idea. It involves revisiting an old idea. It may require some humility – for you will have to accept something you previously rejected. And it will involve faith, for you cannot be sure that the idea will work until you try it. But all other ideas are not working and you really do need to progress. So, as you now have an idea about why an idea did not work last time, what harm can it do to try that old idea again in a new way? Any attempt to understand what once baffled you will turn out to be a good idea this week.

CANCER (June 23 – July 23)
You are not in charge of the universe. The weight of the world does not rest on your shoulders. You are not entirely responsible for the welfare of a particular person or process. You have got a part to play, of course. You’ve got a duty to attend to, too. You also owe it to yourself to draw a line somewhere sensible. It would be easy to take a certain matter too seriously and let it overshadow all else that is so good in your world. But if you keep a sense of perspective, you will be much more effective. Just relax this week.

LEO (July 24 – August 23)
Hold your nose closer to the page. Breathe deeply. There, that’s better. These words and letters have been impregnated with a special substance. Already it is making its way into your system. Inflaming and intoxicating you. Soon, you will be helpless and unable to resist every suggestion. Well, no, not really… but then, can you be sure that you are not already being put under such a spell? Who is to blame for this? Do try to remember, this week, that you can only be seduced by anything or anyone… if you want to be!

VIRGO (August 24 – September 23)
We can’t all know exactly where we are going – or when – or why. We have to keep an element of surprise in our lives unless we want to end up in a very dull world. Uncertainty is a double-edged sword. Too much awakens anxiety, just as too little creates complacency. But it is appropriate for you now to be feeling a little unsure of your ground – or your direction. Yet your outlook remains good. Be brave enough, this week, to concede your doubt about a crucial matter. Only then will you find the best answer.

LIBRA (September 24 – October 23)
It’s one thing to be scared of your own shadow; it’s another to be angry with your own opinion or afraid of your own behaviour. If there is something about yourself of which you disapprove – find a way either to forgive it or to change it. If it’s someone else’s attitude that is proving problematic, don’t waste time trying to make them see what they clearly cannot recognise. Focus this week on broadening your own horizons and you will yet attain a perspective from which very little looks as difficult as it used to look.

SCORPIO (October 24 – November 22)
Draw a deep breath. Now draw another. Go on. Don’t worry about whether anyone else needs to use some of that air. Be as greedy as you like. Air is free. There’s plenty to go round. And air is good stuff. Like water, we take it for granted. We value it only when there’s a shortage. And there’s rarely one of those. Now the question is, what else in life is equally abundant? Hope? Love? Comfort? All this too is, or should be, yours in copious quantities now. If not, this week, try acting as if you expect it to be.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23 – December 21)
What do you value? Where do your priorities lie? You may feel you can give a clear answer to such questions but much depends on your circumstances. We none of us really know ourselves until we get put to the test. Often too, just like anxious students, once we have been tested, we end up fearing that we have failed. We judge ourselves on the basis of insufficient evidence or unrealistic expectation. Change, for you this week, begins with a decision to value yourself. Trust that you are entitled to the best.

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 20)
As we edge ever closer to the solstice, we find you coming to a personal turning point. Something is changing within an important personal relationship. Now, please, don’t run away with the idea that I am talking here about your love life. I might be. I might not be, though, either. I’m just talking about an agreement, an understanding, a way of working. A basis on which joint decisions are made. Where things have been unsatisfactory, stale or stressful, there can now be a big shift for the better in the balance of power.

AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 19)
The bread is wedged firmly in the toaster. It cannot be drawn out. Many have tried and failed. Legend has it that one day someone will come along with the power to extract it – after which, marmalade will flow freely from the hills once more… Are you wondering what this has to do with your outlook for the week? It’s simple. You are, effectively, taking on a quest. It undoubtedly has Arthurian overtones. You have no option other than to be courageous. Yet you must also try to keep a sense of humour about what’s happening.

PISCES (February 20 – March 20)
Many people talk about a ‘sixth sense’. Those people are not Pisceans. You don’t need to talk about it because you know that it exists and have no need to prove this by singing its praises or questioning its existence. It’s just a fact of life. What interests you more is the seventh sense! Above and beyond your impressive intuition, you receive other signals from your heart of hearts. These are important messages. Trust your deepest feeling this week. No matter what’s worrying you, there’s a way to make it all okay.
