PREVIOUS THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY|
February 1st to February 7th
SATURDAY FEBRUARY 1
Tonight, even if you can see the sky, through all those clouds and all
those streetlights, you still won't see the Moon. It is new invisible
in the sign of Aquarius. Expect tension followed by great relief.
Natalie Imbruglia b. February 4 1975. Aquarius.
Natalie Imbruglia will turn 28 on February 4. This means that she
was born while Saturn was in the sign of Cancer. Later this year,
Saturn comes back to this sign. We only experience two or three Saturn
returns in a lifetime, they often put as through difficulty but they
leave us stronger and more powerful.
Happy birthday also this week to: Happy birthday also this week to:

MONDAY FEBRUARY 3
Waiting for luck...
Last year, you wrote about ‘luck’ and said, at the end of your short
piece “I shall say more about this soon.” Well, despite writing in to
remind you several times, I am still waiting!” Rob
Hmmmm. Many people believe that luck is about timing. If you wait till
something instinctively feels right – and then do it – you are far more
likely to succeed than if you act when you feel you ‘ought to’. The
more preconceived expectations we have of others – or of ourselves...
or that we allow others to have of us... the more we may impede the
force of spontaneous serendipity that most people characterise as ‘luck’.
TUESDAY FEBRUARY 4
The Space Shuttle
Some people think that if astrologers are to keep up with the times,
they ought to not simply chart the movements of planets. They ought
also to take man-made satellites into account. They are, after all,
celestial bodies visible from earth. And you can hardly say that something
has no influence if it is beaming down news, weather and movies to millions.
I don’t entirely accept that argument but I definitely do see deep symbolism
in the recent loss of the Space Shuttle. In the timing and the manner
of their tragic deaths, those brave astronauts may yet have contributed
far more, to future world peace, than they will ever know.
Pre-Birth Experience: do you, or someone in your family - have a
memory of an other-worldly existence just before you were born? If
so, you could help with some research - click

WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 5
The drug of fame
Fame is a drug that intoxicates both fan and star alike. The fan becomes
convinced that their life is being blessed by a living god. The star
becomes convinced that he (or she) is truly divine. This hypnotic high
is addictive and soul-destroying. Yet it is such a part of ‘normal life’
that nobody questions it. Even when our heroes and heroines behave in
totally unacceptable ways, half of us want to make excuses for them...
while the other half seem happy to judge them in the kangaroo court
of headline and soundbite. Clearly, we are now having to question this.
That can only be for the good.
THURSDAY FEBRUARY 6
Fact from fiction?
As Neptune, the planet of deception, opposes Jupiter, the planet of
amplification, all the hot topics seem to be about who is telling the
truth. Saddam Hussein? George Bush? Tony Blair? Instinctively, we suspect
that all three are holding back information. The planets appear to confirm
this. They suggest that the name of the game now is ‘Reading Between
The Lines’. The difficulty here is that it is always easy to see what
you want to see – rather than what exists. On TV, in the news, in the
world of celebrities, we are hearing claim and counter-claim. It may
be a good while yet before we become fully able to separate fact from
FRIDAY FEBRUARY 7
What turns a person into a paedophile?
You don’t have to be a psychologist
to work it out. It MUST have something to do with their childhood. Not
all children who have been abused grow up to be paedophiles but almost
all paedophiles were abused when they were children. Secret sufferers
are everywhere. Some have mild cases, others severe. But if all todays
perpetrators were yesterday’s victims, what will some of tomorrow’s
victims grow up to be? We have a chain to break and a sick society to
heal. We need to stop judging and start understanding.
