Birthday Stars

Letting go of longstanding dreams isn’t easy. However, what begins now and unfolds over the coming months is about exactly that. When you conceived of certain plans or ideas ages ago, or more recent concepts, each has its own significance. Still, the powerful planetary shift in your birthday chart indicates a major review of your priorities and, thus, the need to reconsider these, especially in the light of recent, new and appealing, ideas. This more adventurous your approach to this process, the better.

Mon 10 December - 2018


Dealing with one particular individual who regards planning ahead as dull is exasperating. But that’s the way they are, and your past efforts to alter their attitude have achieved little. You could, however, organise things for them while making your own plans, then tell them what they’ll be doing. It may work.


As much as you dislike things being out of your control, it’s now clear that certain tricky situations are entirely the responsibility of others. Acknowledging this frees you to focus on recently neglected personal matters and, even more, passions. This shift is a relief but is also a reward for your generosity with others, some of whom have neither noticed nor appreciated your efforts on their behalf.


Tempting as it is to impose order on December’s many twists and turns, your instincts correctly say these are taking you on a new, exciting but unfamiliar path. But the direction won’t be clear until after the Capricorn eclipsed New Moon on 6 January, which is about breakthroughs. So for now, focus on making overdue changes and, equally, what can go. True, initially, letting go of cherished alliances, achievements or goals will seem a sacrifice. Soon, however, you’ll realise just how thrilling the unexpected can be.

Year to come

Most Capricorns plan ahead, and while during 2018, that will continue, you’ll soon realise that even the simplest of arrangements will change, and often. Worrying as that sounds, the planetary setup favours you, at least in the long term. Certainly the events triggered by the stunning alliance between your ruler Saturn and clever Uranus, in August and September, indicates thrilling if surprising developments. Knowing that, during the year’s first half, make plans but don’t battle changes. Often these are about decluttering your life but, as frequently, the unexpected will be introducing you to something or somebody wonderful. These new activities or alliances will contribute to the powerful shift in your own identity, one that opens doors in wonderful if unexpected ways.

Love and Close Relationships
Although you don’t realise it, you’re a creature of habit, especially when it comes to close relationships, at home or even out in the world. Once you find a rhythm, a routine, you stick with it. Now not only should that change, doing things differently creates the space necessary to make some timely changes.

Finance and Business
Being an earth sigh, you both rely on past experience to shape decisions, and not just in the practical side of your life. But, also, you’re canny enough to notice that with so much changing around you, so, too, must those seemingly unchanging arrangements. This includes your approach to money and business.

Health and Wellbeing
There’s a fine line between a routine, that is getting in the habit of doing something that benefits you and a ‘regime’ which is grim and not much fun. It seems you’ve gotten into the latter, which has taken much of the fun and enthusiasm out of this side of your life. Break away, do something new, just for the fun of it.
