Aries 21 March – 19 April

There is two ways this could go. With Jupiter, the god who likes to make little things big and big things even bigger, entering your money zone, you could get lucky with some extra money. Or you could indulge in a wonderful spending spree. Which would you prefer? Decisions will need to be made that have far-reaching consequences, and the advice you receive is good.  Lastly; are you in the mood for journey?

 Taurus 20 April – 20 May

Time to shine. You are kidding yourself if you think they don’t see you. So you may as well sparkle and take the initiative. What do you want? – Better decide quick, as this is a wonderful opportunity for you to make it happen.  While work is a drag and responsibilities mount up, this is still a time for a make-over, a new outfit or a new outlook on life.  Take care of your money and be financially wise.


Gemini 21 May – 21 June

With a New Moon and Venus, the goddess of love, entering your sign this month, its time to vamp it up and attract whoever you want.  Nobody can ignore you, and while it may just be the attention of the shop assistant, it’s still focused on you, and they will want to help. Think of all the ways this could be useful. So put your hand up and ask for something that was previously denied you.


Cancer 23 June – 22 July

Will you get the peace you desire? If not, get some well deserved time out. Sometimes the only thing wrong in life is that we need time to retreat and have a chance to rest the spirit. So don’t worry if you cannot make up your mind, with a chance to reflect it will all seem easier later in the month. Perhaps think about your old patterns of behavior and see if you are repeating them or not. 


Leo 23 July – 22 Aug

The possibilities from last month continue with recognition within your reach.  Any negotiations and talking that you have been doing will finally pay off and a golden opportunity with a job or career advancement will land in your lap. A group or social network, a buddy club or hobby group will bring benefits.  These associations will have information that is needed.  Once you have what you want – what are your new goals and ambitions?


Virgo 23 Aug – 22 Sep

Changes are stirring at work. It may be more knowledge that you need which means activating the learning parts of your brain! Or it may be that you find out something you did not know. It will all turn out perfectly fine in the end. But keep flexible and on your toes to make adjustments as needed.  Also you need a holiday or you will burst. Either get going now, or at least be planning one.


Libra 23 Sep – 23 Oct

An investment pays off, but overall this is a restless time when you need to expand your world and learn something new. Perhaps you will want a holiday, studying, plan on moving, travelling or maybe merely making lots of short trips. At the very least have a mini holiday and slow down to take it easy as these undertakings can easily become stressful and lead to emotional, rather than logical, decisions.


Scorpio 24 Oct – 21 Nov

Energy and sparkle light up your relationship zone and move you on to new connections and new activities. There are yet more people coming into your life. Sometimes less information is better, so make communications short and to the point, or you will be misinterpreted.  There could be both good news and bad news about your finances and emotions will be high with anything to do with money. Later in the month get extra advice.


Sagittarius 22 Nov – 21 Dec

Other people’s actions will cause you to react in an emotional manner. Don’t take anything personally because it’s not about you – it’s about them and what they want to do. You are their audience. Do you boo and hiss; or applaud? Enjoy the ride and you will learn more about the people you love and your love will deepen.  It can even blossom in unexpected ways as friends become very close.


Capricorn 22 Dec – 19 Jan

A social function that promised to be good, suddenly involves hard work. But you will still have a good time even while you do the necessary work.  This month begins a prolonged time of creativity. The artists among you will be delighted. The rest of you have a chance to change and expand on what pleases you and discover new interests. All of you have the chance to be more than what you were!


Aquarius 20 Jan – 18 Feb

Young people or children, especially your own, will be important to you this month.  They will have something to tell you or information that you need. A shared event has the possibility to bring you closer if you open up and listen. There is no need to “do” anything – just really pay attention. Observe how they act and focus on their vibrant energy and you will soon learn how to become younger in spirit.


Pisces 19 Feb – 20 March

OK so you don’t know which way to go. At the moment it does not matter. The road ahead is unclear and you don’t have a map. You can stop and wait until clarity returns. Or you can trust to intuition and luck and move ahead. There is no yes or no answer to any question you would ask. When the feelings of confusion are strong, I suggest that you go slowly.




Palmistry Hints – Your life is in your hands! June 2, 2011

Your thumb represents will power, logic and vitality. A solid strong thumb shows a strong physical body and practical application of will power. These are the “do’ers”.

A waisted thumb (narrow below the knuckle) shows a very mental and thoughtful attitude to life. These are the “thinkers”.

A supple “bendy” thumb shows good listening skills, a social nature and empathy. A firm straight up and down thumb shows a person who is not showy in love or friendship, and can be shy, but is very reliable.


We are all different, so for instance, don’t mourn the fact that you are a do’er and not a “thinker”, or shy and not social – play to your unique strengths!  Be who you are in all your glory. And grab hold of life in your unique way.

Garden Stories – “Easy Time”

A wise book says, “there is a time to sow and a time to reap”. But sometimes we think we don’t have enough time at the right time!

Take for instance a large pruning job that you need to do. Perhaps a hedge. In times gone past it would have taken all day.  But the weird thing is that once we use the cycles of the Moon and do things in sync with nature then they happen so easy! On a Moon day perfect for pruning the clippers cut easily and neatly, and the branches seem to melt off the hedge. They pile up so neatly that picking them up and putting the rubbish in the green waste bin happens in just a moment.  A day’s job happens in an hour. Try it and see.

– enjoy your garden!

Geometry of a Lunar Eclipse

Image via Wikipedia

 Two eclipses this month are highlighting Gemini and Sagittarius.

Time Zone AEST

2nd June New Moon with partial Solar Eclipse in Gemini at 7.02am which is not visible here in Australia.

3rd June Neptune goes retrograde in Pisces

3rd June Mercury enters Gemini

4th June Jupiter enters Taurus

10th Venus enters Gemini

13th June Saturn goes direct

16th June Full Moon with total Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius at 6.13am. Here in Australia we may be lucky enough to see this just before sunrise.

17th June Mercury enters Cancer

21st June Mars enters Gemini

22nd June Sun enters Cancer. The Solstice means it’s the shortest day. Yippee, each day means a few more minutes of daylight and the promise that Spring will eventually come.

What’s that in the sky?

20 + 6 does not equal 16.           It equals 26!

Why am I telling you this? Well; I know that the distance between the Sun and the planets needs to be more that 17 degrees before we get to visually see them. Last month I made a mistake in my calculations and got the answer of 16, and hence I thought we would not get to see any of the planets in the dawn skies.  

Well; you could have blown me down when one morning out for an early and chilly walk I looked up and saw Venus and Jupiter with the other planets not far away. They were beautiful,  and after I picked myself up I decided to go back to basic maths school!


So for all you early birds

Since 12 + 6 = 18 it means that Venus is just visible low on the horizon for only a few minutes about 6am. She will soon disappear completely as she gets closer to the Sun. Jupiter is higher and will be clearly visible, while Mars is the reddish star about an open hand span below Jupiter. Say hello from me and tell them I can now count! J

The Southern Cross is very low in the southern skies and completely upside down. While the magnificent constellation of the Scorpion will be low on the western horizon.


For all you night owls

Saturn is the only planet visible in the evening. He is hard to spot but well worth the effort. Take out some binoculars and let the Moon be your guide and have a look on the 10th June.

The Moon will be just above and a little to the left of Saturn. The bright star two hand-spans to the left is Regulus, the heart of Leo, and the star one hand-span to the right is Spica.

Throughout the month, the Scorpion will be rising higher and higher in the east and will be visible all night finally settling into the west by dawn.
