Aries
Family will stand by you during tough times. Be patient while handling any problem. Work will take up most of your time, so plan your day well. Visit a doctor if you are feeling weak
Taurus
Don’t dwell in the past, it won’t do you any good. Communicating freely with your partner will solve half your problems. Indulge in some retail therapy today
Gemini
Avoid setting unrealistic targets for yourself as it could cause undue pressure. Do not reveal plans to a colleague as they could create problems
Cancer
Pay more attention to family. Children could demand your time. Be careful while investing money. Start exercising and take up a healthy diet
Leo
Take up some charity work as that will bring you peace of mind. Family will support you in all your endeavours. Singles could meet an interesting person today. Travel plans could materialise
Virgo
You will complete long-pending assignments today. Be a good boss and listen to what your juniors have to say. Stu-dents will bring good news today. And, financially, it will be a great day, as you will receive money that you had lent
Libra
Try to take up a new course to enhance your career opportunities. Domestic expenses will increase, making it difficult to save. Your leadership qualities will help your team achieve success
Scorpio
Businessmen should set a target and work towards achieving it. Family members will help you complete your work on time. A new job is on the cards
Sagittarius
Some of you could volunteer to help an NGO today. Your seniors will appreciate your desire to do things differently. You could spend time with family today
Capricorn
Friends will find it difficult to influence you with their views. On the professional front, take the criticism of your seniors seriously and work towards it
Aquarius
For students, an outstanding academic record may help you to keep an edge over others at campus placements. Some of you could do something creative to surprise your partner
Pisces
Your life will change for the better, provided you make the right choices. You will be given more responsibilities and that will put you in the limelight. Also, don’t let petty arguments get to you — both at work and at home
Jonathan Cainer
Some people are worried about the long-term future. As individuals, they wonder, “Where is the world going next? Does it really have a place for me in it?” When we come up for air, we see that we are surrounded by folk with similar concerns. Some turn their uncertainties into objections. They look for people or situations to blame. But the wise understand that wherever we find fault we are contributing to a climate of conflict. But the world is evolving. Awareness is blossoming. The future will be more peaceful, prosperous and enlightened for billions, across the globe.
Apr 26 2015 - Apr 26 2015
Aries
You look at a situation one way, but another person sees it rather differently. Which one of you is right? Well, you both are. And, in another way, you are both wrong. It’s a bit like asking, ‘What is the natural position for a pendulum?’ It’s fairest to say that, as it keeps swinging from one side to another, it has no ultimate, ideal, permanent position. The minute it stops moving, it is no longer a pendulum. Two points of view are valid and must be bridged, somehow. Fortunately, you’re in a fine position to do that this week. In your love life: An apology? You have a right to be who you are. Grant yourself the confidence to stay your ground.
Taurus
The future hangs in the balance. Give too much weight to one need and you will tip the scales. Likewise, if you overly emphasise a different, contrasting choice. There is, in your life now, an arrangement that’s just about working. If you could simply make it more secure, you could get the best of several worlds. How can you accomplish that? By facing a fear and summoning the confidence you are so richly entitled to feel. Look at what you usually prefer to look away from. Then, you’ll make your next move for the right reason. In your love life: Your life is not lived in black and white. It’s an intricate web of colour and it deserves deeper consideration.
Gemini
Mount Everest, they tell us, is slowly shrinking. Arguments rage about the extent to which this is happening. It is not an easy thing to gauge. You can’t just climb up to the top and then drop down a tape measure. Still, though, it may already be a couple of metres shorter than it was in George Mallory’s day. I don’t suppose that really makes it any easier to climb. But, from a symbolic point of view, it is a helpful image. Your trickiest challenge is not getting any bigger. Indeed, this week, you will see clear proof that a problem is reducing. In your love life: Are we on Earth to pay for past transgressions? If you believe that you’ll miss your chance to get a big result.
Cancer
What does someone really mean? What are they truly trying to say? What are you supposed to make of their behaviour? Where is the hidden agenda? What is the deep motivation? Don’t you just love questions like that? Don’t you so much enjoy wrestling with the invisible and the unknowable? Of course, you don’t. So why put yourself through that? Take what’s happening at face value and remember, this week, that acts born out of emotion don’t ever stand up to reason. But that doesn’t make them all bad. In your love life: Are you playing an essential part in a complicated chain of events and circumstances? It’s time to make it all simpler.
Leo
Some processes take a remarkably long time before they get to critical mass. The pace of change can be almost glacial yet if it is change, it must have a pace and sooner or later, it must stop “nearly happening” and start ‘really happening’. You’ve been waiting for something so long that you’ve all but forgotten you were ever waiting. You’ve distracted yourself. You’ve paid attention to other matters. You’ve told yourself that you were silly to think that anything ever would occur. Only... just look what’s starting to happen now. In your love life: Don’t ignore your own better judgement. Do what you know to be right, not what someone else considers appropriate.
Virgo
There is an old saying, “I’ll scratch your back, if you’ll scratch mine”. It doesn’t just apply to people with itchy backs. There are some favours that we can do for others more easily than we can do for ourselves. Sometimes, too, we find ourselves more willing to make an effort for a friend. We may not, for example, feel like cooking ourselves a supper —but if someone is coming round, we’ll make that effort. This week, subtly, someone needs to be shown that being helpful will increase the chance of getting what they most need. In your love life: Stop doubting yourself. If you question every development, you will lose the magic being showered upon you.
Libra
Do you ever feel as if you are being deliberately misunderstood? Does it seem as if no matter what you say or how you say it, someone else will construe a different meaning to your words? Are you also starting to notice how, despite your best efforts to attain clarity, you keep finding yourself in situations that could be easily misinterpreted... especially by someone keen to justify their own belief or prejudice? Here comes a much-needed chance to set a record straight and achieve a much clearer line of communication. In your love life: Imagine if you had the gift of infallibility. There may soon come a point when it begins to seem as if that’s the case.
Scorpio
What do you believe? What do you trust? What do you aspire to? What would you most like to learn, what would you most like to be free from, what would you most like to change, in this world, for the better? Think about what’s not acceptable and why. To what extent have you been missing an important point? Either your secret wish is silly — in which case it is time you dropped it and moved on — or it is truly worthwhile. In which case, you really need to stop doubting it and start giving it more of your time. In your love life: Is there too much complexity? Make things simple. Don’t let a small uncertainty create an enormous stumbling block.
Sagittarius
We are all connected in more ways than we really understand. We get fascinated by the connections that we can see and we forget the invisible ones. Thus we see members of our family as closely linked to us, our colleagues as being slightly less aligned, and we reserve a special place in our hearts for the people who share our religion or support the same football team that we do. But true bonds run deeper than we realise and are not dependent upon common cultural tradition. This week, you recognise a real friend. In your love life: Your epic journey of emotional discovery begins a new phase. But you now need to become more sure of yourself.
Capricorn
The world is full of people who seemingly love to shout. They think the person who wins the argument is the one who makes their point in the loudest voice. You know, though, that the most subtle, secret wisdom carries more weight than the most enormous announcement. Quality counts more than quantity, and the right word, in the right ear at the right time can... well, it can do precisely what this week, you are going to demonstrate that it can do! Prepare to break a circular pattern and make subtle but real progress. In your love life: Caught up in a situation? You are going to get much-needed help with a decision that has long been rather difficult.
Aquarius
Wake up, it’s time to take your sleeping tablet.’ That statement, surely, represents the epitome of futility. Or maybe there are dafter things to do and say. And maybe soon, if you are not careful, you’ll find out what they are. There’s a sort of Alice-In-Wonderland quality to the logic in your life at the moment. All seems sensible till you stop and notice that one person is painting the roses red while another is running hard to stay in the same place. Do as little as possible this week, until you can truly see a point in doing anything. In your love life: Someone is taking advantage of you. Someone else appears to be thwarting you, but they are doing you a big kindness.
Pisces
Never underestimate the importance of good communication and meaningful conversation. Do I really need to tell a Piscean this? Were you not born blessed with a natural ability to empathise? Is not that ability to attract trust one of your strongest suits? But then, once in a while, we all overlook the obvious. We get distracted by details. When other people do the same, key points get forgotten or overlooked. Without casting aspersions or creating conflict, your challenge, this week, is to bring a project back on track. In your love life: Nobody lives a clean-lined, glossy-magazine world. Get real and set yourself an attainable goal in your emotional life.
