ARIES (March 21st to April 19th) You have a relatively smooth month ahead with not too many shocks in store. Financially things
are vastly improved on previous
months. All is not as predictable as it was once however and there is a great deal of room for improvement. Take time out to take stock of yourself, your life and your ambitions. You have abilities, you have energy, you even have the opportunities not accorded to others. Ask yourself therefore why you are not further forward? The answer could be innate laziness, or that you’re disorganised? Take advice and start to change because in the time you have left, there’s lots to achieve. TAURUS (April 20th to May 20th) An unexpected turn

BOOK REVIEW Walking Cardiff - By Peter Finch
Jury's Inn, 1 Park Place, Cardiff, CF10 3UD (formerly the Park Hotel)
Poet and ‘psychogeographer’ Peter Finch is the go-to writer on Cardiff; he has conducted numerous alternative rambles, literary walks, non-literary adventures and cycle-aided excursions across the city, which he has collected into Walking Cardiff. Te twenty walks visit the new and the ancient, the difficult, the undiscovered, the lesser-known, the artistic, the entertaining, the quirky and the unexpected. Finch and photographer John Briggs criss-cross the city, informing, discovering, exploring, enduring reviving old routes as they go, from its farthest reaches – Lisvane, Penarth pier, Llanrumney – to its familiar centre around Cathays Park and the castle. Walking Cardiff encompasses the city’s history while recording daily life on its streets, in its parks and its famous, and not so famous, buildings. Each walk is illustrated with a map and photographs by John Briggs. Ramble the routes yourself or just read the book. Cardiff is there to be discovered. Published by Seren, paperback £14.99, available from good book shops.
Walking Cardiff brings together twenty walks around the bustling capital of Wales in a guide that visits the new and the ancient, the difficult, the undiscovered, the lesser-known, the artistic, the entertaining, the quirky and the unexpected - uncovering Cardiff past and present for all to enjoy.

18 - Friday 22nd November 2019 - Cardiff & South Wales Advertiser
you somewhat confused for a while this month. It won’t quieten you for long though. Being the exuberant person you are, you’ll soon be back on form, scratching for your accustomed place in the pecking order. Do try to listen to advice though. You are something of a loose canon and inclined to go your own way regardless, when the spirit moves you, and this is not always wise. A much neglected family elder could with advantage be consulted if you need financial advice. Best all round however, not to look for good investments, they are too few and far between just now.
GEMINI (May 21st to June 21st) There will be a mind-boggling amount of work for you to attend to this month, it’s all part of your general popularity. You are one of the most sought-after people in your circle and will remain so all month so you will experience a great many interruptions. Don’t try to discourage any of this, just work round it. You would be filled with despair if things were any other way. Watch your health toward the end of the month however because you may just manage to overdo things. Relax at every opportunity you have and stop worrying about things you can’t change. It’s a fruitless activity.
CANCER (June 22nd to July 22nd) Mindful of your bank balance, you should think carefully before lavishing anything on one who really doesn’t care. You have closer friends and even relatives who deserve your attentions far more. An outing you postponed not too long ago could still be on the cards. You should not be surprised however if the other person who was invited with you, is less than enthusiastic about accompanying you. Take no notice and don’t be persuaded to go along with them. You must go on the outing if you want the advancement you seek. If you have any sense, you’ll rid yourself of an old obsession, it’ll do you no good. LEO (July 23rd to August 22nd) Life can seem awfully difficult at times. This month things may seem ever more so. It is all a matter of organisation however and with a little application you should be able to sort it all out. A swift word to a fellow club member could alert them to a possible inconvenience towards the end of the month. Financially it is all systems go. You have been very astute in your investments and you should reap some benefits soon. Take time to consider before you accept an unusual invitation to dine because it may be someone is about to ask a favour that you cannot under any circumstances grant them.
VIRGO (August 23rd to September 22nd) If
you receive an admonishment, you
shouldn’t be surprised. It really is only what you deserve. You must try to make amends for what you have engineered over recent months. Don’t look for excuses either, there are none. You acted from pure self-interest and pay day has come at last. You could make amends by apologising, it would be so simple and it would be accepted. If you are too stubborn however, you must just take what’s coming, on the chin. Once you have resolved the problem, you should start to look carefully at your long term plans. There are
SCORPIO (October 24th to November 22nd)
Things go in threes so they say, so if you have had two surprises, expect a third toward the end of the month. Be a touch careful of new ideas if put forward by a normally imaginative and creative person. This is someone you should not trust under any circumstances. You may find an unexpected invitation comes soon, if so, do accept, you may not get the chance again and such an experience is not to be discarded without very good reason. Take care not to over exercise this month, your health could be at stake. SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd to December 21st)
Uncertainty could colour your whole outlook this month. You must try to become better informed of the various aspects of the position in which you find yourself. You have a great deal of influence in certain quarters so don’t hesitate to use it if it becomes necessary. You may be told a secret in the next week or so and you’ll find it’s no real secret after all. Never mind, at least your integrity is intact and that’s all that matters. And anyway, the important thing is that no-one knows you were party to the information in the first place. CAPRICORN (December 22nd to January 20th)
If friends seem off-form just now, don’t nag. It could be that you are in such good form, you are eclipsing all those around you. This could cause great jealousies amongst those you work with. Therefore, to counteract any potential damage to you, do try to be a touch more understanding, of the weakness of others. You have been going through an extremely intolerant stage and all your friends and colleagues are suffering. It might help to get in touch with a distant relative. The distance is in miles rather than relationship, though if you don’t make contact soon, both could be the case. AQUARIUS (January 21st to February 19th) Try to put certain anxieties behind you. You were given the right advice at a crucial time, follow it and you’ll have no more trouble. Ignore it and you can’t really complain if things go wrong. Finances must be reorganised if you are to acquire that object you hanker after. Likewise an investment of time must be accorded your partner if both of you are to reap maximum benefit from your association. Socially there will be little of interest going on this month. Use the time wisely therefore in preparation for next month, because it looks like being a very eventful one in many ways. PISCES (February 20th to March 20th) Don’t complain too loudly if things don’t go your way. It could be your fault. On the other hand, if you have not made your feelings quite clear to those who matter, you can’t expect them to know how to proceed in the circumstances. Socially the month will be a very mixed bag. You will get a great many invitations to events you perhaps do not wish to attend. Conversely you may still be waiting for a particularly coveted invitation long after the event. Why worry? At least you are in demand in some quarters. It could well be, the event you fancied led to some unfortunate results.
good times ahead if you are well prepared. LIBRA (September 23rd to October 23rd) An old friend may let you down unexpectedly. You will be profoundly shocked if they do, but really you should not be because you have been warned. And if you think back to the not too distant past you will remember things said and done that you forgave and forgot. Perhaps they were just early warnings but don’t brood whatever you do, and don’t mourn the loss of a friend because when one door closes another always opens. The signs are, you’ll be more than happy with the new friends that will come and the circumstances that will change as a result. Life could be taking a turn for the better.
