The week ahead, #5

By Petra Papadopoulos on October 4th, 2013

Aries

20 March – 19 April

Aries.svg There is danger ahead. You may not realise it yet, but somebody you’ve been leaning on cannot be trusted. She is desperate to stab you in the back. Hand over no evidence or ammunition unnecessarily. Destiny is varnishing an antique chest of drawers.

Taurus

19 April – 20 May

225px-Taurus.svg It is easy to imagine at this pleasant point in your life that the universe is conspiring in your favour. By and large you are right but be mindful of an existential threat on Tuesday which could risk all you hold dear. Destiny is moulding clay.

Gemini

20 May – 21 June

Gemini.svg One of the greatest risks to a personality like yours is the temptation to be a hero. The affirmation you seek is better found in the love of friends. Relinquish your fruitless hate campaign. Destiny is closing comments for legal reasons.

Cancer

21 June – 22 July

Cancer.svg There is no easy way to confess to a loved one that they do not mean to you what they once did. But friendships, like Klout scores, ebb and flow with the movements of the heavens. He will forgive you. Destiny is reading an instruction manual.

Leo

22 July – 22 August

Leo.svgI once was blind, but now I see. Those are the words of the old spiritual. Their words will resonate with you this week as a challenge you face on Thursday reminds you of how far you’ve come. You need be afraid no longer. Destiny is asking advice from a Rabbi.

Virgo

22 August – 22 September

Virgo.svg This week, you will spend much of your time desperately confused about the behaviour of those around you. But when all others are losing their heads and you feel like a lone voice crying out in the darkness, try to remember you brought this on yourself. Destiny is cancelling the credit card she used to buy Adobe Creative Suite 6.

Libra

22 September – 23 October

Libra.svgThings are never as bad as you think they are. But pessimism has its place when it drives us to excel. Only by demanding the best of yourself and through discipline can you succeed in your endeavours. But live a little. Destiny is waiting by the front door.

Scorpio

23 October – 22 November

Scorpio.svgAn offer you will receive on Wednesday sounds attractive, but your reservations are justified. It can only lead to disaster. Sometimes stability is the best form of progress. Destiny is cancelling your OkCupid subscription.

Sagittarius

22 November – 21 December

Sagittarius.svg You cannot fight the forces at work against you. Their strength is too great and they have been planning for too long. One well-judged tweet cannot overturn the armies of trollish, obsessive, hateful campaigners. Language has its limits. Destiny is taking a cab.

Capricorn

21 December – 20 January

Capricorn.svgFor the first time in your life you are about to be offered some real responsibility. But responsibility comes at a price and you must learn to compromise if you want to achieve all that the world has to offer. Destiny is uninstalling Frontback.

Aquarius

20 January – 18 February

Aquarius.svg You may not remember it now, but you were once asked to make a choice that has shaped all the events of the last six months. Remember, however, that connections can be broken even more swiftly than they are made and that friendships forged digitally are worth less than nothing. Destiny is painting a self portrait.

Pisces

18 February – 20 March

Pisces.svg Excitement, like anger, can lead to rash judgements. Try to be forgiving of other peoples failures and remember that, like them, you too have said things in public forums you do not necessarily mean. Forgiveness is the highest virtue. Destiny is writing her will.
