Here’s another sample piece….
Not only today, but also April the 5th and 9th are red letter days for you. The 3rd, 7th , 9th and 13th also promise to prove significant, while the 2nd, 6th, 11th and 14th warrant even more attention – as well as the 4th, 8th, 10th and 12th. Watch out, too, for the period from the 14th to the 29th. The rest of the month, you’ll find, will be rather more ordinary (apart from the 30th, of course).
Unfortunately, some of your more irritating aspects are going to come through today – like making sweeping statements that seem to be rich in content but on closer examination don’t actually say anything at all. You love influencing others, and are quick to expoit their gullability. You insist on treating each one-twelfth of the world’s population as if they were all identical, and you’re not averse to becoming incredibly rich. Have you considered a career in writing astrological columns for small-format daily newspapers?
Something is probably going to happen today; so be prepared, as definite developments are likely to arise from it. Be ready to look at things as they really are. You could receive a telephone call.
You may have to change some plans, while standing firm on others. In public places, you will encounter large numbers of people. Try to avoid confrontations, but don’t let anyone push you around. Be positive, yet realistic.
Letters will arrive, bringing mixed news. New information will come to light, and certain issues will inevitably be raised. Someone will ask you to do something, and you will be called upon to respond appropriately. You will almost certainly experience feelings and emotions. Keep an eye on both past and future, while living fully in the present. In short, keep your sights high, and your feet firmly on the ground!
All in all, then, a fairly typical day for Geminians, which could go either way.
Exercise particular care today. Be circumspect around large buildings, and don’t move too quickly, or go too far in one straight line. Don’t reject sincere advice, and postpone signing anything until the end of the week. Be especially vigilant around sophisticated technical apparatus such as computers, video recorders, nuclear particle accelerators and ball-point pens. Above all, don’t panic!
Even if you do exercise the utmost caution, you may not be able to avoid being run over by a bus on the Finchley Road, even though you live in Barrow-in-Furness. It’s just one of those days, really.
The thing to remember today is that the more you put into life, the more you will get out. After all, Rome wasn’t built in a day. So don’t put all your eggs in one basket, for too many cooks spoil the broth. Take the opportunity to clear away some dead wood, but avoid burning your bridges behind you; your boat will surely come in, and everything will be all right on the night. This could be just the shot in the arm that you need right now. Every cloud has a silver lining!
So, to sum up, life is not a one-way street, and any journey of 1000 miles begins with the first step. In other words, nothing ventured, nothing gained.
On the way to work today, you will form a key relationship with someone standing next to you at the bus stop, but you will not see them again for another 23 years. Just before noon, you will learn that you have won a major literary prize. After lunch, you will receive a visit from a very thin person. At 4.03pm GMT, you will meet the love of your life. Around 8 o’clock in the evening, you will become totally enlightened. But why am I telling you this? You know it all already!
Pay special attention to domestic affairs today, in fact don’t ignore family matters in general. Romance will feature, and time spent on relationships will be fruitful. Emotions will be prominent. Work and professional matters are likely to come to the fore, while investments and other financial matters, too, will occupy your mind. You would be wise to consider holidays and travel, too, at this juncture. Indeed, make sure that all kinds of communication are attended to. Hobbies will be highly rewarding. Today is an excellent day for shopping.
Well! Sex really raises it’s ugly head in your chart today, doesn’t it? Not a good time for celibacy, I’d say. But just remember that Scorpios can be a bit of a prick sometimes.
Don’t miss the Archers (BBC Radio) this evening.
There are a great number of stars in your chart just at the moment; many of them are fixed, but others are mutable, and they are all having a profound effect on your sidereal zodiac. Although your horary astrological prospect is unusually mundane, nevertheless there is quite a profound planetary shift going on, not least in the thirteenth house where Uranus is transiting, and the sun is semi-sextile Jupiter. What with Venus in Aquarius adversely aspected by Pluto, the question is whether your ruler, Mars, will now be overshadowed by the current quicunx situation vis-a-vis Scorpio – not to mention the small matter of the Grand Trine, due to occur in the Moon’s fifth quarter. At least there are no lunations due for a day or two; but don’t underestimate the de-stabilizing influence of the partial eclipse at the end of the week. It’s just as well that your cardinal sign is in the ascendant during the upcoming solar ingress, or the ruling synastry would be somewhat worrying, especially with the constellation of Sirius in your mid-heaven.
But then of course the whole situation will be completely different by tomorrow.
This is the day to really affirm your own worth and deservingness; you truly are a wonderful human being. You are a magnet, drawing to yourself prosperity, wellbeing and happiness. True soulmates in abundance are waiting to flow into your life right now.
So just open up to the bounty of the Universe, and let the Divine flow through you. Be really nice to yourself today. Book up an aromatherapy treatment, some Reiki, a bit of hypnotherapy and a really nice Aura Cleansing session. Then, after lunch, you could treat yourself to a Float, a Breathe and maybe a go on the Brain Machine. In the evening, perhaps indulge yourslef with a bit of Channelling.
By the way, St Michael’s line will be your ley line of the day. Amythest is the crystal to wear, and your lucky kitchen utensil for today will be the spatula.
I’m sorry, it’s getting late, so I’m afraid you’re not getting a reading today. Just sort of go with the flow or something.
