For private sittings and appointments please contact Kenny on 96 587 8424 • 686 361 594 • kennycorris@hotmail.com Mars connects with Mercury and backs something you are finding it hard to bring yourself to say. For the sake of peace and contentment do not remain silent, since there is much to share right now, and new objectives do need to be viewed and commented on by others; to gain that extra and necessary perspective to make an impact. Venus resides, and is joined by Mercury, who begins the double act that allows for a conjunction between these very different planets. With Venus shining a light for you, in which should be reflected the need to connect with your heart, and Mercury making a play for what you are about to do, there is something worth waiting for. Mercury connects with Venus and then sextiles Neptune in turn. These form a corner in which a lot of deadwood is cut away and you are free to go either which way. Above all follow your instincts and intuition and make this an opportunity not to be missed. Right now you are resourceful, and patient, and very much in control. Crablike wanderings see you poised with pincers ready to nip something into shape. Taking all into consideration you are free to express your feelings and have restrained anger for some time just lately. Whilst you cannot stop the actions of others, you can give them a run for their money, so bring it on sooner than later. It is very hard to put your finger on what really is the problem holding you back, but dump some of that attention seeking behaviour in favour of making a clean breast of things. Romance flirts with your highly prized innermost self, and pride comes before a fall, so stop playing and play to win; whereby love can enter at long last. Chiron features towards the end of the month as specific actions of Mercury Mars and Venus join and go jointly into sextile. This is for sure, not a time to make any decisions but it is a time to plan and to keep your eye on things. You are about to make some changes that will ring a depth to new projects and a time to launch yourself!

Kenny Corris brings you the Horoscope Balance is the name of your game and Venus tugs at your heart string to be allowed the freedom to unite your innermost dreams and desires, before Pluto shows up and makes a mighty sweep in the opposite of directions. Right now is the need to consolidate and conserve, and testing the water, as you will, brings dividends. You may very well have bitten off far more than you can chew, but a challenge beckons and there comes a time to strike whilst the iron is hot. Many people have given you the so called benefit of their suggestions, but it is alone and with confidence that you strike a chord that heralds that which you need to do to lead you on. With the subtle fortune of a wayward Jupiter, conjunction with Pluto is designed to throw you off course. In actual fact with the subtle energies of ebullient Mercury and a fleeting glimpse of romantic Venus there is a time to weigh up the pro’s and the cons and stop stalling. They say that you will hurt the one that you really love!? Your instincts are telling you to take everything on board right now, but please, don’t do it if you value your pride. There is something being held back from you because, if known, it would alter the situation. With concerns and doubts nagging you, and no safe place to hide, put your faith in the tried and tested and follow your instincts Neptune plays with Venus and Mercury, and you are at a crossroads regarding a balance of work, rest and play. You need to have some quality time to prove things to yourself, and there is much on the home front to occupy you right now. Let bygones be bygones and see what will happen if you put faith into something else. The strongly psychic energies that embrace you are about to show you a loophole and a clear way forward. You are about to experience something that may initially put the cat amongst the pigeons, but will ensure that your need to move on to pastures new is taken into account and your wishes granted for all the right reasons.

Useful Information ALSA BUSES

This is the bus which runs to Alicante airport. You can catch it from either the Avda Europa, outside the Europa Clinica or from the bus station – but with baggage you would need to take a taxi as you are not allowed to take luggage onto local public buses. Departs hourly and on the hour from Avda Europa from 7am until 10pm – but there is NO bus at 9pm: costs 9.45€ one way.

Banks

In Spain banks only open for half a day, so make sure you go in the morning. Normal opening hours are 8.15am till 2pm, no Saturday opening. All banks have an ATM with an option to change the language into English – press the ‘cambio idiomas’ option.

Gay Beaches...

MAL PAS BEACH This is a small cove often missed by many visitors and is found at the end of the harbour road on the Poniente side of the Old Town. You can also reach it by steps from the top of the Old Town square known as La SeĂąoria. This beach is popular with gay visitors especially in Winter when it is a sun trap. PONIENTE BEACH (Popular gay area by the park at night) Beyond the Old Town starting at park Elche by the harbour and running for over 3km is the more sedate Poniente beach which is a favourite with local residents and Spanish families. The facilities are as good as the Levante but offer a less crowded space. Popular Gay area is in front of the park where you will also find the new CafĂŠ Refuel the place to meet up after the Poniente beach for a beer and gossip. (Park Elx known as Dove Park also).

BENIDORM COVES - TI XIMO & ALMADRABA These are small sandy coves reached by road at the far end of the Levante beyond the cable ski.

If you prefer to be more secluded these are recommended for the adventurous as it is quite a steep walk. There are no facilities so take plenty to drink and food if you are to spend an entire day there. RACO CORNIL GAY PLAYA NUDISTA 4km FROM BENIDORM This beach is best reached by hire car. Take the old Villa Joyosa road toward the casino. Take an immediate left at the casino and follow the road down to the car park where you will find a small rocky cove. The area both by the beach and at the top of the hill where you see a derelict Finca is very popular for all over sunbathing until sun down. The cove itself is mixed and is popular with Spanish couples too. You can walk if you take the number 5 or 41 bus to La Cala (From Park Elx by harbour) and walk over the hill. To get there face the beach and look to the right up the hill you will see a derelict villa set high up - head for it to get to the gay area which has been popular for 100 years! Take plenty of water with you as there are no facilities there.
