FOR WEEK BEGINNING
SEPTEMBER 1, 2015
Money revolves around property and
domestic matters during September 2-4,
ensuring that many will be making it through
property-related ventures or spending it on
the acquisition of items for the home. Arian
sympathies and dreams are aroused for a few
short hours on Thursday, accompanied by a
feeling of something more than the tangible
realities of daily existence.
You are well in contact with the emotional
side of your nature during September 2-4,
and your words certainly reflect this state of
being: communications are important. It is so
easy to visualise your dreams during Thursday
morning: you can almost reach out and touch
them. Hold fast to these dreams and use your
instincts to map a path.
September 2-4 will find many Geminis
looking more closely at their financial
situation, perhaps because of complications.
You will be glad to get away from it all. The
creative urges that surge during Thursday
morning are well utilised as you construct
a career for yourself. Instincts are finely
honed then and also assist you in furthering

during September 2-4, accentuating friendship
possibilities. Many Cancerians will also be
visualising their goals. Your mind is like a
sponge at the moment, absorbing ideas and
impressions. This proves to be particularly
useful on Thursday morning as you navigate
the ideas and ways of others.
You are in a regular, vulnerable phase during
September 2-4, when you will feel the eyes of
others focusing on your weak points. Take time
to deal with it. You are financially adaptable on
Thursday morning, allowing you to improvise
and improve your budgets and resources.
A refund or application for financial benefit
looks good then.
As your mind is so receptive during
September 2-4, you'll easily make valuable
contacts and relate well to existing friends.
Your mental state also assists you in
making progress with a goal. A spiritual
connection with another individual seems to
permeate your very existence on Thursday
morning: this is a delightful, harmless and
Deep emotional needs will be evident during
September 2-4, accentuating a close bonding
between yourself and your partner. Such
feelings are urgent and do not easily fined

resources that are at your disposal on
Thursday morning, producing some of your
finest work. You instinctively know what is
good for you then.
There's no cause for doubt. There is wonderful,
enriching, emotional and intellectual
interaction with someone close to you during
September 2-4. This period is generally
good for marriage. The beautiful sensuous
influences that emanate from a romance hang
delightfully in the air on Thursday morning,
tantalising you: a good time to luxuriate in the
mood of the moment.
There is a tendency not to feel the best during
September 2-4, with the trend most likely
aggravating a weak spot in your constitution.
This can be an emotional time. Love of family
is stimulated on Thursday morning through
circumstances that arise with other family
members. The deep connection to your soul is
brought to consciousness then.

others, whether you are simply enjoying the
company of others in a recreational pursuit or

intuitively aware of all that is going on around
you on Thursday morning, with such instincts
shaping actions and conversations during that
period of time.

communication and travel, something that you
will truly enjoy. You'll thrive on contacts made
during this time and are revitalised by the
experience. Elevating your consciousness to a
new level are the experiences and people you
encounter on Thursday morning. Words are
unnecessary in situations such as these.

FILM REVIEW: SOUTHPAW
Struggles in and out of ring
Forest Whitaker and Jake Gyllenhaal in Southpaw.
The big screen
Boxing films range from stories of
comebacks by former champions and
missed chances for those who could
have been contenders to the rise from
obscurity of underdogs in films such as
Rocky, Million Dollar Baby and
Southpaw acknowledges and
borrows from all these films to create
a mix of unfettered emotions and
Billy Hope is a world-class
champion who, after a tragic
occurrence following the successful
defence of his title, is left on the brink
of losing everything he has achieved
like a huge mansion and luxury
automobiles but, most importantly,
having his daughter, Leila, removed
from his care to become a ward of the
Billy and his wife and Leila s
mother, Mo, both overcame dire
childhoods to succeed in life.
In the world of boxing, Billy
encounters opponents in the ring as
well as barracudas like his manager
Jordan Mains, a fight promoter whose
motto is, "If there s money in it, it s
good". Family loyalties are tested.
The real struggle in Southpaw does
not happen within the boundaries of
the boxing ring. Boxing is the frame
within which Billy struggles to control
his temper and take control of his life.
The pounding his face takes in the
brutal boxing sequences is a metaphor
for the struggles in his life.
Billy turns to Tick, a former boxer
who operates a neighbourhood gym
for underprivileged youth, to salvage
his boxing career.
His ultimate goal is not to regain his
title as the world s light heavyweight
boxer but to reunite with his daughter s
feelings, collect his self-respect and
manage his life so he can value what
really matters in his life -- his daughter.
Forest Whitaker as Tick delivers the
Southpaw is less a boxing drama
than a family drama set within the
confines of the boxing world.
