Birthday Stars

Everybody has certain dreams, some so far-fetched that they’re likely to remain exactly that, an inspiring but unlikely fantasy. But with a little thought and effort, others could become reality. Some are actually within your reach, which means you need only act on those ideas. Tempting as it is to say you’re still trying to get things ‘right’, you’re simply putting these off. The sooner you take action, the more swiftly they’ll become reality.

Sun 17 February - 2019


From your point of view as an enthusiastic but impatient Aries, the more you have to do, the more fun life is. Yet recent complications slowed your pace and, initially at least, seemed dull. Since then, however, you’ve realised just how fascinating these complicated issues are, and are eagerly looking for more.


While you’re by no means rigid in your thinking or attitude towards change, you still like to make your own decisions. However, judging by last Wednesday’s encounter between your ruler Mars and the unpredictable Uranus, events are forcing your hand. Actually, this is best, because it’s all about breakthroughs, events that are taking you into new, unfamiliar but hugely promising territory, personally, financially or professionally.


Being true to yourself and your passions, and organising plans that support those is as challenging as it is exciting. Still, with your ruler Mars in Aries from 1 January until mid-February, you’re debating your own priorities, now and for the future, and equally, those involving others. Now, changes in circumstances and in your priorities lead to intriguing discoveries. As a result, and to your surprise, you easily say farewell to once-prized activities and pursuits. This, in turn, frees you to explore new and often completely unexpected options.

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.
