Birthday Stars

Few things are more challenging than finding a way to escape a situation or, possibly, an individual you want to avoid, no matter what. Being ruled by the charming Venus, you’ll always seek a gracious way out. While this works with most, dealing with certain individuals requires a tough, no nonsense approach. They count on the fact few are willing to take a tough line so, mostly, do as they please. Be one of the few who stands up for yourself. It will be like magic.

Tue 23 April - 2019


What began as a relaxed exchange of ideas has developed into something as complex as it could be exciting. While others want to talk things over further, you’re eager to turn these ideas into action, and learn from that. If so, because others are being cautious, you may have to go it alone.


Only recently, your plans for both here and now arrangements and the future weren’t just clear, you’ve been excited about what’s next. Now, suddenly, either things aren’t going as expected or they’re falling apart. Tempting as it is to leap into action and restore these, instead wait and watch. Within days far better options will appear, seemingly from nowhere. Explore absolutely everything. You’ll be thrilled.


April has two themes, the first the fresh start that your birthday is all about. But with your ruling planet, independent Mars, accenting discussion and new ideas, especially those that come through others, the emphasis is on teamwork and seeking advice. Take that approach as you set u your here and now life and organise future plans. While annoying initially, this ensures you’re updated on pivotal changes in everything from financial matters, domestic or career changes and new endeavours, especially those that require joint efforts.

Year to come

The final months of 2018 may have been frustrating. However, your ruling planet Mars’s move into Aries, on 1 January – to remain until mid-February – kick-starts a year of wonderful events. What arises not only makes up for past disappointments, new ideas or exciting encounters lead to promising activities and, often, long term plans. Be bold but, equally, ensure whatever you organise is flexible, since what seems your best option could improve, often and unexpectedly, over the months. Also, balance taking chances with keeping close track of financial and practical matters, since sudden changes could mean a sudden rethink. Most of all, during 2019, ensure plans are flexible, since intriguing ideas and encounters, some that seem risky if not unlikely this year, could come together spectacularly during 2020.
