Birthday Stars

For the past couple of years, decisions about your lifestyle, that is how and where you live, and even the timing of your day, have been substantially influenced by others, mostly those around you but also these in the wider world. While, you’ve had no real objections, certain elements of this routine have become restrictive. Not only can you alter, if not radically change, these, the time has come to discuss other elements of this routine as well. Worrying as this seems, it’s unlikely there’ll be objections of any kind.

Fri 18 October - 2019


True, the current slow pace, of both events and progress, is dull. But it’s also allowing you and others to tackle certain neglected tasks. With so much moving so swiftly, you’ve had little time for much else. Now, at last, you can tackle these and, better yet, spend time with those who matter most.


Every Full Moon brings both circumstances and feelings to a head. However, because the one on Sunday the 13th is in Aries, you’ve reached a turning point. Most decisions will involve your own plans and, especially, those linked to others. But, equally, this is about taking time to consider what truly excites you and whether you need to rethink your plans or even reorganise your priorities.


Leaving pivotal decisions to others, or even to destiny, may be out of character for you, as a determined Aries. Yet what and who you encounter will enrich your life now and, in certain situations, for years to come. By the Aries Full Moon, on the 13th, both feelings about these matters and facts will be clear. True, often this means embracing a new passion, pursuit or making a major change. Ignore others’ warnings or your own doubts. Plunge in. Whatever the case, you’ll never regret it.

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.
