FOR WEEK BEGINNING
AUGUST 18, 2015
Other people will be able to touch your heart
during August 19, 20, as a strong bond of
empathy links you together. This is stronger
with family members, but may also extend to
strangers. Influences emanating from the home
and family tend to arouse strong emotions
during August 20-23, leaving Arian people
feeling unsettled and questioning life.
You seem to be more sensitive to everything
during August 19, 20 and are therefore
prepared to invest more effort into regular
tasks. Any weaknesses in your constitution
may also be aggravated. Life is an adventure
during Thursday through Sunday and you'll
enjoy sharing it with someone close. As with
all adventures, some turn out to be better
experiences than others.
Gemini is out there trying different routes
to success and enjoying the experience. The
delights of life will tempt you in small ways
during Wednesday and Thursday, ensuring
that you'll indulge yourself in some form of
pleasure. It doesn't do any harm. The rhythmic
influences operating in your work sphere will
be comforting during August 20-23, even if for
no other reason than providing you with the
comfort of an income.
You are a naturally domesticated type
but are even more into that scene during
Wednesday and Thursday. Senses of harmony
and satisfaction are your rewards. Thursday
through Sunday connect you deeply with people
you love, arousing your protective instincts.
Children figure strongly in the equation then.
Lucky conditions also prevail.
Someone in particular totally inspires you
as you take this journey. You are really in a
communicative frame of mind during August 19,
20 as you pull yourself into step with your
environment. This attitude helps you to resolve
some issues. Domestic disturbances are likely to
cause some disquiet during Thursday through
Sunday. You'll simply want some time alone to
figure out the best way of handling a situation.
Extra cash is likely to find its way to you
during August 19, 20, whether through regular
employment or something extra on the
side. This is a good time to further financial

but it's unlikely that anyone will use it against
you. Find your own peace. Money flows rapidly
during August 20-23, making this a great time
for shopping and pay negotiations. You learn a
few tricks along the way, adding to your wealth
It's that time of month when you feel like
hibernating for a few days; just to get your own
affairs in order. You truly enjoy these moments
of privacy during August 19, 20. The depth
of your emotions is strongly evident during
August 20-23, powering the effective delivery
of words and plans: augurs well for education
Unexpected news connected to a child or
romance gets you going. Although you are
in with the crowd during Wednesday and
Thursday, a sense of discomfort lingers with
you. There may be some unpleasant situation
to manage. Thursday through Sunday are a few
days when you'll simply want to get away from
the mainstream of life: you simply don't like
showing deep emotions in public.
You seem to be very active dealing with all
sorts of people during August 19, 20, most
likely in the business sense. This exposition
does not make you feel comfortable. There are
plenty of fun activities to fill your life during
Thursday through Sunday, all in the company
of people you like. This is a good time for
Unexpected news also comes your way.
There's something of value you can learn
during Wednesday and Thursday, even if it is
just a handy hint. You'll quickly find a way to
utilise this knowledge. The power of Aquarian
emotions drives their lives in each one's
chosen direction during August 20-23, strongly
supplemented by a willingness and desire
There's a tendency to buy on impulse then
but you should think things through first.
Wednesday and Thursday is an emotionally
trying time. Pisceans tend to be overly
sensitive, so it doesn't take much to set you
off: this is just a monthly event. The richness
of life will be experienced through people and
events that bring you love and good fortune
during Thursday through Sunday. Emotions run

FILM REVIEW: LAST CAB TO DARWIN
Life, the universe and Rex
Michael Caton as Broken Hill cabbie Rex, facing his final flagfall.
The big screen
Confronting death in movies is
difficult under any circumstances.
In Last Cab To Darwin, Michael
Caton, as Rex, a Broken Hill taxi
driver dying from cancer, presents us
with a personal and emotional
enactment of an old man confronting
The film takes us on a journey
across the harsh yet beautiful
landscape between Broken Hill and
Darwin as Rex drives his taxi to visit
Dr Farmer, an advocate for euthanasia.
The stark countryside mirrors Rex's
loneliness. He apparently has no one in
his life apart from a few drinking
mates at the pub.
Then he meets Tilly, a young
Aboriginal man who is the
embodiment of exuberance and
Tilly's euphoria hides his
insecurities. He has taken the wrong
road too many times and is
directionless when he meets Rex.
The two of them become unlikely
road trip buddies.
Polly, Rex's neighbour in Broken
Hill, is closer to Rex than he cares to
admit in public because Polly is black
and Rex is white.
Issues around racial differences
surface in low-key yet influential ways
throughout the film.
Their love is exhibited around cups
of tea in the morning and the gentle
touch of hands.
At times, the film resorts to
sentimental and cliche
imagery, including the notion that a
person's death is like the sun setting on
a picturesque landscape.
Michael Caton is the heart and soul
of the movie while Tilly and Polly are
life-affirming people in Rex's life.
He may be dying but they offer him
love unconditionally, although
sometimes begrudgingly. Tilly also
provides humorous moments as
counterpoints to Rex's tragedy.
Your heartstrings will be tugged.
Rex's imminent death will definitely
