Birthday Stars

The move by the planet of ideas and expression, Mercury, into Leo on your birthday, accents the importance of both rethinking your own plans and priorities and, equally, discussing them with others. You may be confident your thinking is clear, but times have changed and so have you, more than you realise. Only once you’re actually exchanging ideas with others about what’s next and, equally, what could become part of the past will you realise how broad, exciting and worthwhile your options are.

Wed 05 August - 2020


It would be easy to blame the current mess you and others are facing on sudden changes in circumstance. And while that would be valid, everyone ignored certain unsettling events, mostly because they were so puzzling nobody knew what to think. Now you do, and it means taking fast action.


Although most Capricorns acknowledge they are control freaks, you’re also adept at concealing this, even when making complex plans or decisions. But now events are running counter to your thinking and, obviously, you want to take control. Don’t. Begin asking questions. Over the coming weeks crucial, and ultimately amazing, facts will surface. These will change both your thoughts about the present and your vision of the future.


Between the recent eclipses and the brief visit by your ruling planet, cautious Saturn, to Aquarius, the sign of breakthroughs, you’ve lots of questions but not many answers. Tempting as it is to gather facts swiftly, instead regard this as a period of exploration, both of possibilities in the world around you but, as much, of new ways of living, working and even of new joys. That may seem extreme until you find yourself feeling so restless you realise changes aren’t just of interest, they’re necessary.

Year to come

Planning ahead may be a virtue, but between the Capricorn eclipsed New Moon on 26 December of 2019 and the eclipsed Full Moon in your sign on 5 July of the coming year, life is about breakthroughs. While some may be planned, those that have the greatest impact will also be the least expected. Once you understand that, instead of worrying when unexpected events force a serious rethink, you’ll recognise this as an invitation to rethink elements of your life, especially certain longstanding arrangements. What’s more, with your ruler Saturn shifting between your own sign and edgy Aquarius, while once you’ve have played it safe, life’s about discovery. For now, focus on the ideas, people and places you encounter, knowing each will add to decisions regarding the future.
