Your Astrological Week Ahead, With Psychic Bob
Virgo (23 AUG-22 SEP)
The people who say that the best form of revenge is a life well-lived
have clearly never pissed through the letterbox of a dole officer who’s
turned down your sickness benefit claim.
Libra (23 SEP-23 OCT)
On Thursday while you’re investigating some unusual looking pods on an
alien planet one of them opens up and a slimy creature jumps at your
face, pierces your space helmet and impregnates you. A couple of days
later just when you’re feeling your old self again, the gestated alien
foetus rips though your stomach, lets out a blood-curdling screech and
then scurries off leaving your shipmates stunned and horrified while you
lie there twitching as your guts spill across the table. And on Friday
an old flame gets back in touch.
Scorpio (24 OCT-21 NOV)
The internet is the greatest invention of the last 100 years, so by all means spend the weekend seeing what it would look like if you and the Nolan Sisters had kids?
Sagittarius (22 NOV-21 DEC)
Part of the doctor’s advice for your bleeding piles is to avoid excessive wiping. Why does he think you do that?
Capricorn (22 DEC-19 JAN)
We are the champions, my friends and we’ll keep on fighting ’til the end. Unless of course we get contacted via a third party by some shady Middle East betting syndicate.
Aquarius (20 JAN-19 FEB)
Why not give your home the feeling of space, light and warmth it currently lacks by burning the fucking place to the ground?
Pisces (20 FEB-20 MAR)
Don’t be too proud of this technological terror you’ve constructed. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force. Or Fern Britton.
Aries (21 MAR-19 APR)
A difficult day at work in your ad agency as it takes a whole eight minutes to decide to make the new set of aftershave adverts a series of oblique, pseudo-intellectual phrases mumbled over pictures of muscular torsos.
Taurus (20 APRIL – 20 MAY)
This week find a busker and then join in with whatever song he’s singing except do in a really weird falsetto while making obscene hand gestures.
Gemini (21 MAY-20 JUN)
This week you stand in front of thousands of people and explain why you sold out everything you, and by extension they, ever purported to believe in for the fleeting illusion of power, all the while your thoughts drowned out by your desperate, screaming soul. Enjoy.
Cancer (21 JUN-22 JUL)
This week you do what you can for the victims of the Pakistani flood by haggling over a pair of second hand trousers in Oxfam.
Leo (23 JUL-22 AUG)
There’s a certain romantic nobility to your drinking, a bit like Nicholas Cage in Leaving Las Vegas. Except that with you it’s really more Staying in Wetherspoons.
