Birthday Stars

Few things are more challenging than finding a way to escape a situation or, possibly, an individual you want to avoid, no matter what. Being ruled by the charming Venus, you’ll always seek a gracious way out. While this works with most, dealing with certain individuals requires a tough, no nonsense approach. They count on the fact few are willing to take a tough line so, mostly, do as they please. Be one of the few who stands up for yourself. It will be like magic.

Ordinarily, if you know somebody or are familiar with the way they do things, you’ll trust them when making joint plans. While, usually, there’d be no problem, with so much in transition, you’re better off talking things through point by point. This may be dull, but it’s easier than facing unexpected problems later.


Although you make it look easy, living your life as a Leo demands considerable time and effort. And now that exciting yet sudden events are forcing an extensive rethink, you’re feeling overwhelmed, and unsure how to begin. Because these changes are influencing others, team up with those around you. And, also, because they’re ongoing, forget about a master plan. The formula? Live one day at a time.


Obviously, you’re not happy that decisions regarding crucial elements of your life are up to others or, possibly, in destiny’s hands. However, with inventive Uranus now influencing the way you live and work, the more flexible your attitude, the better. What initially seems unwelcome, if not unwise, could turn out to be a dream come true, if in a different form than you’d imagined. The trick is to avoid rigid plans, instead exploring everything and meeting everybody, for the sheer joy of discovery.

Year to come

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.
