Jonathan Cainer Zodiac Forecasts


PREVIOUS THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY
March 6th to March 12th 2006


MONDAY March 6
Twenty years of writing forecasts - Part 4

Photo: A convention of British astrologers, somewhere in London, somewhere between 1982 - 5. I'm on the far right in the jumper and tie (!). Nik Kollerstrom - astronomy expert - is second left. The late, great Charles Harvey is seated far left. Scientific correllation researcher, Mick O'Neill is seated far right. Historian and author Patrick Curry in the jacket, on the back row. And the others? If someone recognises anyone, please someone email me and, through the day, we'll update the site with info as it arrives.

My first ever daily zodiac column appeared on March 4, 1986 in the launch issue of the now defunct Today newspaper. Then, as now, the predictions had to be ready a couple of days in advance. I must, therefore, have been writing those initial forecasts twenty years ago this very day! 6,420 columns, 75,000 individual predictions or roughly eight million words later Iím still very much enjoying the job. I canít get any balder or greyer, but I reckon I can manage a good few million more words ... and Iím looking forward to the next twenty years!

WEDNESDAY March 8
Twenty years of writing forecasts - Part 6

Today's picture, by the way, was taken in 1983, in London. It shows a group of serious and highly respected astrologers... the kind who would never bring their art into disrepute by writing sun sign predictions! On the far left, at the table, is the late, great and still sorely missed Charles Harvey. Seated next to him, there's Danielle Claret, Jane de Rome and scientific correlation researcher, Mick O'Neill. From left standing are David Stevens, Astronomy expert Nick Kollerstrom, Rowan Bayne, Martin Budd, Simon Best, author and historian Patrick Curry, Michael Startup, Graham Douglas and, on the end, in the tie, with the dodgy patterned sweater... an early prototype version of Jonathan Cainer.

THURSDAY March 9
Good day to bad day email

Dear Jonathan,
Why do some days suddenly turn from good to bad... or vice versa? Is it to do with the planets? Or is it just because I'm a Scorpio?
Maureen

Dear Maureen,
Most planets move slowly, but the Moon covers a degree every couple of hours. That's fast enough to quickly make (and then break) a significant angular contact to your birth chart. We all come under such a passing influence quite often but only usually notice when other planets are also affecting that part of our chart... unless we are born under a sensitive sign, like Scorpio!


FRIDAY March 10
Sun, Mercury and Earth comment

The Sun, Mercury and Earth form a straight line this weekend. The technical name for this is an 'inferior conjunction'. To an astrologer, though, this is a very superior, deeply auspicious alignment that confers "clarity of communication". If you've been following this page carefully lately, you'll know the communication planet is currently moving "backwards". Many people have lately found themselves talking at cross purposes... or becoming confused. Though Mercury won't change direction for another couple of weeks, its alignment with the Sun will help many of us to shine light on situations that have seemed dark and mystifying.

SATURDAY March 11
No Thought for the Day


SUNDAY March 12
Astrology advert email query

Your Week Ahead:

Dear Jonathan,
I recently saw an advert from an astrologer offering to reveal my "key to wealth and success". After I accepted a free reading, she began to bombard me with letters. The latest warns of a dreadful development that, apparently, I can avoid only if I purchase a special report.
Anne

Dear Anne,
I doubt that the writer of these letters is a real astrologer... or even a real person. Her letters may seem very personal but they tend to be produced on large machines, owned by cynical marketing companies. I'm currently working, with a group of reputable colleagues, to develop an international code of conduct to help stamp out this abuse of astrology. Till then, at the risk of sounding like the pot calling the kettle black... no ethical professional would ever use a veiled threat in order to sell you a service.
