For private sittings and appointments please contact Kenny on 96 587 8424 • 686 361 594 • kennycorris@hotmail.com You’ll have a spring in your step as it seems that you are on a winning streak, and that you have at last a free reign to get your own way for a change. Also evident is your positive energy, though you have been sorely tested of late. Make it a priority to practise what you preach, and your own wants and needs will be well taken care of. The pressure is taken off at the last minute, and you have a stay of execution. This will help you to get things right and also will make up for the lost time, and delays that others have brought upon you. Getting your house in order means holding your tongue, and waiting for the moment that’s right, to get you the attention that you need. Eliminate doubt from your mind and make the most of a situation that even as we speak is gathering momentum. A loophole does much to steer you in the right direction, and to enrich your plans. Actions amongst the Planets, especially between Mercury and Uranus in Pisces highlight what you have to take on next.

Nostalgia takes you back this week as you revere the happy days with someone from the past. Still the best time is now, and the combined energy of Jupiter in opposition to Saturn ensures that you have a chance to escape from the everyday pressures, and enjoy some much needed recuperation and rest. Plans are about to change quite dramatically. You put a lot into life now it’s time to take out just what you need right now. Just lately there has been a need to help others, but now the boot is on the other foot and you may have problems in admitting to it. People should enjoy helping you, now it’s your turn to need their attentions. Something doesn’t seem to add up, and you hate being lied to, especially by someone you love and respect. Energies of Saturn in your fourth house of mystery and intrigue, bring you the wisdom to see beyond, and the illumination of a way forward that will allow you the help that you need once and for all.

Kenny Corris brings you the Horoscope Keeping your head above water, isn’t an option since it is preserving all you hold dear. Somebody has got the wrong end of the stick, and is sending you mixed messages when you really need clarity and reasoning to move on and upwards. Take the opportunity to come up with a strategy that helps maintain the equilibrium. Stubborn energies of your opposing Planet of Taurus fan the flames this month, as a drama becomes a crisis and you are called on to keep the peace. With Uranus skirting Pisces and Mercury entering Aries it’s going to be a bumpy ride. You’ll get the chance to show just what you are made of if you take things in your stride. A month in which much can be achieved if you find the peace and solitude that you need to get your head together! Whereas you work well under pressure, you need to listen to the inner you when it comes to making any decisions; as these are infinitely better left on hold until you can give them the priority that they deserve. Pluto sends out strong messages and you would do very well to listen very carefully to the current one, since it offers you advice and in depth help to steer you in the right direction. With Uranus in conjunction with Mercury there is pressure for you to come up with the goods and others wait to see how you deal with this! Jupiter continues to bring you closer then you have ever been to finding luck and good fortune. Making a difference has always been your strength, but now you can go one step further! Put any doubts aside, and plough your strength into what you really want this time around, without compromise, without fear of failure. Boosted greatly by the combined energies of Uranus and Mercury this should be a carefree month, albeit one in which you can clear a lot of the backlog. A good time to organise, implement new ideas and for the renovation of plans made, but not implemented, as yet. You are in pole position to make that move.

Beaches...

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.

Info courtesy of www.realbenidorm.net Café Refuel the place to meet up after the Poniente beach for a beer and gossip. (Park Elx known as Dove Park also). 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 Señoria. This beach is popular with gay visitors especially in Winter when it is a sun trap.

LEVANTE BEACH - FINEST BEACH ON THE COSTA BLANCA Probably the most famous feature of Benidorm are its fantastic beaches. The busiest is the Levante beach where the sun rises and is just over 2km in length. Gay area of the beach is found at the old town end in front of the Don Cesar café. Find it by heading down to the beach from the square where the Queens and Bears bar are located.

LA CALA BEACH - FINESTRAT COSTA BLANCA Over the hill (Mont Benidorm) at the far end of the Poniente beach you will find La Cala Beach, reached by the number 5 or 41 bus from park Elche. This is a small cove which is mostly enjoyed by residents and ex-pats who are wintering in Spain. The area is well known for safe swimming and offers some great bars and restaurants right on the beach. It is popular with gay visitors and local gay residents. It is possible to walk over the hill to the nudist beach at Raco Conil, but you need to be fit. Walk to the top of the road to the left as you face inland from the beach. You will see a derelict villa. Follow the path to the villa for good sunbathing and daytime cruising.

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

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.
