Horoscope: September 2011


ARIES (3/21-4/19) Failure to keep your New Year’s Resolutions is a fault we can all empathize with. But it’s harder to accept in your case, as you are Ban Ki-moon.

TAURUS (4/20-5/20) While you may believe that “whatever doesn’t kill you can only make you stronger,” a third massive stroke in six months calls for a re-think. Or would, if you were able to control the left side of your brain.

GEMINI (5/21-6/20) There’s nothing wrong per se with dabbling in a little light lesbianism but it helps if you’re not a man, Gemini.

CANCER (6/21-7/22) Venus is in your rising House and Neptune has crossed the Third Meridian, but you’ll be too busy being caught up trying to seduce your ayi to give a shit.

LEO (7/23-8/22) The lion is powerful, assertive and regal. Ironic, really, since you’re a jumped-up, weedy little weasel of a junior official with no sense of humour.

VIRGO (8/23-9/22) Exploring new territories proves a blunder when your previously unknown, utopian ethnic minority emerges into a Chinese lumberyard and is mown down by a wayward bulldozer.

LIBRA (9/23-10/22) It’s been ten years since everyone mocked your prediction of the coming collapse of the US but try not to be too smug: nobody likes a smartypants.

SCORPIO (10/23-11/21) A new liaison will develop an intriguing twist when your homosexual lover turns out to be not only engaged, but also heir to the Mongolian throne!

SAGITTARIUS (11/22-12/21) You decide it’s time for a change of tack. Unfortunately, this will put you directly in the path of an oncoming Japanese fishing boat.

CAPRICORN (12/22-1/19) A chance encounter will lead you down an unknown path, bundle you into an unmarked car and dismember you in an anonymous fu lu fifteen hours later.

AQUARIUS (1/20-2/10) Aquarians are always considered tolerant, progressive individuals. Which is why you’re the first to be shocked by your increasingly violent hutong cat-killing habit.

PISCES (2/19-3/20) Try to remember what happened last year when you set off a box of Tibetan firecrackers in Tiananmen to celebrate National Day.
