With the planetary focus shifting to the cool-minded, cautious Virgo from the 18th onward, those details won’t just be important, they’ll be linked to exciting if complex future plans. The one challenge? Taking things slowly enough to make decisions once, and wisely.


After an unsettling July, the Leo New Moon on 1 August casts problems and sudden yet intriguing ideas or offers in a new light. Waste no time on debate. If the circumstances or individuals involved excite you, say yes first, then deal with the details later. Risky as this seems, the swift pace indicates ideas or offers could vanish overnight. Then, from mid-month onward, focus on the dull practicalities necessary to make these a realistic part of your life. It will be well worth the effort.

For ages life’s been way too predictable. The dramatic changes triggered by the Leo eclipsed Full Moon on 21 January kick start a cycle of growth, in terms of activities and encounters that will take you into mid-year. Explore each - this inquisitive mood will prove helpful when events prompt unexpected changes in your work or lifestyle. And take chances. Within months what seemed unrealistic will intrigue if not delight you. Also, focus on balancing life’s pleasures with looking after your wellbeing, physical and otherwise. Instead of making eating better or toning your body a duty, have fun - get others involved. Most of all, savour every day and month. Each will be thrilling, but when things come together until the year’s close, it will be spectacular.
