Forecasts for week beginning Saturday July 5, 2014

By Jonathan Cainer ~

Venus, this week, forms a sharp alignment to Saturn. Mars makes an antagonistic aspect to Neptune. The Sun and Uranus have a cosmic disagreement too. All or any of these configurations can be interpreted as troublesome omens. Even the forthcoming Full Moon can be read in this way. But only by those who are seeking reasons to worry. Life is never without its challenges or its sources of irritation. But all cosmic provocations can also provide motivation towards positive change. If you’ve got hope in your heart now, you may yet encounter events that suggest it is truly justified.

ARIES (March 21 – April 20)
Why do we seem to spend so much time trying to understand the things that people are saying to us – and then even more time trying to work out how we got this wrong? Is this because we are not clever? Because others are not clear? Or because clusters of confusion hover over all our lives like clouds, waiting for their chance to shower us all in the misery of misunderstanding? Events this week highlight a previous communication error… yet thankfully they also provide a way to resolve tension and ensure future trust.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21)
You haven’t got enough of what you need! And if you want to get this, you’re going to have to sacrifice something you don’t want to miss out on. Or so it seems. This week, at several times, you may feel as if this is the situation and there’s little you can do about it. But there is one marvellous way to get the better of the forces of negativity that now seem to be ganging up on you. You can relax! Simply by refusing to worry and trusting instead, you’ll work all the magic you need in order to bring all the freedom you seek.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 22)
People born under your sign are supposed to be capable of convincing almost anyone of anything. On a good day, you can be an impressive advocate for any idea, regardless of how much you secretly, actually believe in it! You can even talk yourself into adopting positions that you can’t give your heart and soul to, just because you’ve come up with an argument that sounds so good! Yet this week, a plan will only work if it is made and followed with total sincerity. Thankfully, the influence of Venus will ensure this is possible.

CANCER (June 23 – July 23)
What will happen if you just keep smiling? Will you turn triumph into disaster? Or will you look like a faithful fool clutching the wheel of the ship of your dreams as it sinks below the ocean of disappointment? That’s a risk you’ll just have to take. If you man the lifeboat of despair and lower it into the sea of self-proclaimed stupidity, you’ll feel even sillier when the hole in the prow turns out to be a minor puncture. It can be easily patched! Your boat of hope will yet right itself and sail smoothly on to a brighter future.

LEO (July 24 – August 23)
Whose feelings must you keep in mind, whose sensitivities must you tiptoe round, whose needs must be met? What would happen if you were to leave these folk to their own devices? Are you obliged to act as their keeper? And do you find my questions slightly infuriating? ‘Jonathan, it’s no use you suggesting that I don’t have to do this… the stress of stepping back would be worse than bending over backwards!’ Well maybe you’re right. This week at least, a sacrifice you make will bring you a great reward.

VIRGO (August 24 – September 23)
The world is full of philosophers. They all have their big ideas about what we’re all doing here, what life is supposed to be about and how we can fulfil our ‘purpose on Earth’. If only they all agreed with one another we might know who to believe. Till then, unless we’ve got a lot of faith and trust in other people, the only thing we can do is consult our own heart and follow our own conscience. What’s yours telling you this week? Don’t ignore your deepest feelings. Let them guide you to the best outcome to a drama.

LIBRA (September 24 – October 23)
One of these days, Mars will move on out of your sign. Then I’ll stop looking at your outlook and remember that I must find more words to help you cope with pressure. And you’ll stop waking up in the morning realising there’s more to do today than yesterday. Actually, we don’t have long to go. Having been in Libra for ages, Mars leaves at the end of July. By then, you’ll have triumphantly achieved all that now seems so difficult. This week? Get your nose back to that grindstone. You’re nearer to success than you think!

SCORPIO (October 24 – November 22)
If you were in charge of the universe, wouldn’t you make some changes? After you’d organised some lottery wins on behalf of deserving causes and rescued ill-treated individuals from sorry situations, you might look at how humans are designed. What’s all this with the tendency to get sick? How come, when folk don’t tell the truth, a red light doesn’t flash on the end of their nose? There are many injustices you can’t fix this week. But if you keep a sense of humour, you may yet right at least one big wrong!

SAGITTARIUS (November 23 – December 21)
Somehow, this week, it seems as if life is obliging you to think hard about money – and why you don’t seem to have enough. If it helps, the same is true for Sagittarian millionaires as it is for paupers. All who share your sign are currently conscious of a need for further funds. Yet none are as close to collapse as they fear! You’re only being shown the extent of a need so you can turn your creative ingenuity to the art of generating more. An opportunity to increase wealth awaits. Remain optimistic enough to recognise it!

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 20)
As the waxing Moon, each day this week, rises higher in the night sky we move towards the special point in the year when a Full Moon in your sign enables all Capricorns to become exponents of emotional arguments that brook no contradiction and must be respected. Even if you’ve been feeling downtrodden and disregarded for far too long, this is where you get listened to, responded to and shown the consideration you deserve. Stop worrying and start acting as if you expect things to go well… and they will!

AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 19)
People who act as if they have all the answers are usually, we find, the people who are asking all the wrong questions! The truly wise know that there’s no such thing as a simple solution to any problem. Fix something here and you probably break it there. Make one person happy and you upset another. There’s no instant way to overcome life’s trials and tribulations. But it’s possible to find, in the heart of your heart, a way to live with all this in a loving, forgiving mood. This week at least, the sky grants you that!

PISCES (February 20 – March 20)
Read this forecast quickly. You’ve no time to lose. Look at all you’ve got to do. How can that happen in the time you’ve got available? Surely, you must rush. And once you’ve finished rushing, you can hurry up and do the next thing that needs doing. And attend to the next person who wants something from you. Can’t you? Or maybe this week, you can respond to the tense influence of a sharp link from Mars to Neptune by making a big decision… to let yourself off the hook and breathe out. Then all will be well.
