PREVIOUS THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY|
June 1st to June 8th 2002
SATURDAY JUNE 1
Match Made in Heaven
The cosmic climate changes significantly this week. Venus is about to form a conjunction to Jupiter, which is good news for just about everyone. Soon, hopefully, we'll all be feeling a little more relaxed, romantic and prosperous...and a lot less stressed.
The Match Made in Heaven? Will Smith (b. September 25, 1968) Libra & Jada Pinkett (b. September 18, 1971) Virgo
Virgos are perceptive. When Librans are talking rubbish, Virgos can tell. And Librans are notoriously opinionated. When Virgos are talking sense, Librans can't tell! This little difficulty has to be resolved before we can safely declare it a Match Made in Heaven.
MONDAY JUNE 3
Jonathan away - Adam Smith
Jonathan is taking a break from writing the daily predictions this week - he will be back next week. Each day this week, one of the world's fine astrologers will hold the fort for Jonathan. Today's guest writer is Adam Smith. Adam, 33, is consultant astrologer based in London. He writes a horoscope column for Star, a BBC celebrity magazine. He also works for Astrolivelink, the live astrological telephone consultation service.
Adam Smith: Like everyone else I had to sit and stew during England's opening World Cup match. Astrologers are often asked to predict sporting outcomes, but this is a specialised art in horoscopy and not all of us do it - it's like asking a contract lawyer to conduct a criminal case, or David Beckham to play in goal. However, with Mercury, planet of communication going backward at the moment, few astrologers have been surprised at all the squad changes and second-guessing going on in Japan and Korea. All the newspaper headlines describing people performing 'U-Turns' is a sure sign Mercury is skewy.
TUESDAY JUNE 4
Jonathan away - Yasmin Boland
Jonathan is taking a break from writing the daily predictions this week - he will be back next week. Each day this week, one of the world's fine astrologers will hold the fort for Jonathan. Todayís guest writer is Yasmin Boland. Yasmin divides her time between sunny Sydney and London. A full-time writer, she is the author of Cosmic Love, a pocket-sized book about using astrology, feng shui, crystals and more to draw love to you. You can read her daily Moon Meditation column on her website www.yasminboland.com.
Yasmin Boland: If youíre sexy but single and looking for love, today could be your lucky day. The vibes from yesterdayís Venus-Jupiter rendezvous are still in the air so itís the perfect time to start a new relationship or improve an existing one. To use this energy, make a wish list of what you want from love. Nothing is too trivial include. Make it a good-looking list Ė use felt tip pens and coloured paper - and hang it (or hide it) in the west of your home or bedroom. The is the new projects area of any home and a great place for stowing your dreams. Once thatís done, put on your best clothes, go out and mingle, of course.
WEDNESDAY JUNE 5
Jonathan away - Eric Francis
Jonathan is taking a break from writing the daily predictions this week - he will be back next week. Each day this week, one of the world's fine astrologers will hold the fort for Jonathan. Today's guest astrologer is Eric Francis. Eric is a Seattle-based astrologer. He specialises in newly-discovered planets such as Chiron, and often works as a consultant to people in the performing and creative arts. His column appears weekly at www.PlanetWaves.net and monthly on AOL-UK. Eric Francis is the creator of Planet Waves, a web project devoted to astrology, metaphysics, ecological issues and relationships. The popular site offers weekly, monthly and annual horoscopes, as well as a special daily edition during the June 10 eclipse, plus amazing artwork and an archive of hundreds of essays by Eric and other writers.
Eric Francis: We're living through a stretch of time that's going to look a lot more significant from the vantage point of the future than it may appear now. If you've ever wondered, "What choices could I have made if I knew how meaningful those days were?" then stop, and think about today, and each day as it comes. Each will carry more momentum of change than the previous one. Each carries a greater calling for awareness and sensitivity to your deepest needs, and those of the people around you. But the bottom line is that we have the opportunity to make choices now that will help change the world, in ways large and small. And we don't have to do it alone.
THURSDAY JUNE 6
Jonathan away - Nick Campion
Jonathan is taking a break from writing the daily predictions this week - he will be back next week. Each day this week, one of the world's fine astrologers will hold the fort for Jonathan. Todayís guest astrologer is Nick Campion. Jonathan likes to call Nick his mentor - he was one of Nickís students in the early eighties and the two became firm friends. Nick has been in love with the stars since he was a child and travels the world writing and lecturing. His latest book, The Ultimate Astrologer, is a handy teach-yourself guide to astrology and is published by Rider at £10.99. You can find Nick on-line at www.NickCampion.com
Nick Campion: Iím constantly debating astrology with astronomers. There is a big difference between the two, even though they both deal with the stars. Astronomy is the physical study of the universe, what the stars are made of, how they move and so on. Astrology, on the other hand, is an ancient discipline that is all concerned with the meaning for our lives that we see in the heavens. The trouble is that astronomers are often to be found proclaiming that astrology is rubbish, which really gets on my nerves considering few of them know anything about it. I love both Ė gazing through my telescope at Saturnís rings on a clear winter night and then mulling over a horoscope for some great world event. And while Iím talking about the stars, one of the worst things about our modern cities is the street lights which permanently obscure the wonders of the night sky for most of us.

FRIDAY JUNE 7
Jonathan away - Bernard Fitzwalter
Jonathan is taking a break from writing the daily predictions this week - he will be back next week. Each day this week, one of the world's fine astrologers will hold the fort for Jonathan. Todayís guest astrologer is Jonathan Cainer returns on Monday. Todayís guest astrologer is Jonathanís long-time friend and colleague Bernard Fitzwalter. Bernard, from Cirencester, Gloucestershire, writes astrology columns in major magazines published around the globe. He is a regular Friday contributor to Astronews on this page. Below Bernardís forecasts today he also takes a close look at the final effects of the Saturn-Pluto activity which has shaded recent times.
Bernard Fitzwalter: Iíll be very glad when Mercury changes direction tomorrow and starts moving forwards again. I know that these periods of reverse motion, which occur three times a year, are always full of minor mishaps, but this one has really tested my patience. Virtually every electronic or mechanical device I own has gone wrong in some way, and thereís been plenty of the usual Mercurial mischief of missed calls, misinterpreted messages and letters which never arrived. Today the mayhem starts to subside; by next week things will be on the mend.
