from-the-horses-mouthMY NOT VERY SERIOUS STARS

Scorpio 24 Oct – 22 Nov

An acupuncturist friend may puncture your ego with some much needed home truths. If you’re worried about your looks, it is time that you started appreciating what you have and how well you are. As a genius, expect more lows than highs.

Sagittarius 23 Nov – 21 Dec

Your lover may disappoint you this month by buying, what you consider to be, a poor birthday present. A man with dyed hair may come to your rescue in your hour of need. A good time to start eating Peking duck.

Capricorn 22 Dec – 20 Jan

Someone may give you a diamond ring this month but be careful of their motives. A long lost relative may contact you soon to ask you for money. You may find a purse and wonder what you should do with it but remember your karmic path.

Aquarius 21 Jan – 19 Feb

It may be necessary to hire a Private Detective this month if you suspect that your partner is playing away. You may go off of eating haddock and become obsessed with spinach. A man of the cloth may try to influence the way you live your life.

Pisces 20 Feb – 20 Mar

You may feel very nostalgic at the moment and long for past times and romance that you once had, but this will pass and you will start to enjoy the present moment again. Be proud that you have a strong moral code and that you know right from wrong.

Aries 21 Mar – 20 Apr

A neighbour may irritate you this month but be aware that it is better the devil you know. Don’t get into a friend’s car that contains their lost pet snake. If you can’t stop smoking, it is a good time to try and cut down.

Written by Rumbi Mapanga

Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision, And engrave it plainly on [clay] tablets, so that the one who reads it will run. “For the vision is yet for the appointed [future] time. It hurries towards the goal [of fulfilment]; it will not fail. Even though it delays, wait [patiently] for it. Because it will certainly come; it will not delay Habakkuk 2:2-3.

There was a time in my life when life seemed meaningless and it seemed like there was no reason to dream or carry on. Everything around me looked desolate and unproductive. I was a shell of myself, living like a zombie allowing the winds of life to toss me about. If you have read some of my articles before you might even guess what I am talking about. Darkness was closing around me. At the time it seems like there was no way out, my beloved ones had forsaken me – I felt lonely vulnerable with no anchor to hold on to, until I came to myself like the prodigal son in the word of God and realised that I can decree a thing according to Job 22 and it will be established.
