image for Your Horoscope : Pisces

Help with an ethical matter will be forthcoming this week. Follow a friends advice regarding a moral dilemma that has been troubling you for some time. A surprise source of income could come your way.

You have discovered that a distant relative has recently been diagnosed with colon cancer and that the prognosis is poor. She is a spinster and has no close relatives. Even better she owns a four bedroomed detached house in Lewes, just outside fashionable Brighton. You were always her favourite nephew and she would send you a £10 W.H.Smiths token every Christmas. However you haven't had any contact for over 15 years as, to be honest, 'you found her and her cats rather dull'.

The dilemma you are considering is whether or not to suddenly take a keen interest in Cancer research and 'quite by accident' bump into Auntie Jean whilst fund raising in Eastbourne District General Hospital. This obviously will set off a chain of events resulting in you inheriting £500,000 worth of real estate.

Or do you keep a discrete distance, accept that you never really had much in common and send a respectful wreath come the day of her funeral.

With Mars and Venus in conjunction with your home planet Mercury, astrologically this is an ideal time to put your morals to one side and sail on the good ship 'Family Fortune'. Many a pair of Jimmy Choo's have been bought this way. As Nietzsche wrote in 'The Birth of Tragedy',

" True all credibility, all good conscience, all evidence of truth comes only from the senses… But I'd stop all this deep thinking lark for an elderly relative with Alzheimer's and a Swiss Bank account "

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
