Birthday Stars

Everybody has certain dreams, some so far-fetched that they’re likely to remain exactly that, an inspiring but unlikely fantasy. But with a little thought and effort, others could become reality. Some are actually within your reach, which means you need only act on those ideas. Tempting as it is to say you’re still trying to get things ‘right’, you’re simply putting these off. The sooner you take action, the more swiftly they’ll become reality.

Sun 17 February - 2019


Little is more annoying than having to back out of an arrangement which required a lot of effort and juggling from everybody concerned. Worrying as this is, the current changeable climate is influencing others as well, which means that they, too, will need to rethink things, if not begin all over again.


Practical decisions are one thing and, while many are complicated, the facts are clear enough you know what to do. However, those involving domestic or family matters, or the balance between life at home and out in the world are more pressing, and far more complicated. Discuss these with those involved, and far more frankly that would be your inclination. You’ll be amazed how helpful others are.


It’s not that you’ve been sidestepping decisions. Every time you’ve come up with a plan, circumstances have forced you to rethink everything. While exhausting, this has proved informative but, also, led to rewarding discussions and introductions to fascinating people. Still, regard arrangements as minor, since with the rare occurrence of two Full Moons in your sign, Libra, on 21 March and 19 April, ongoing changes in circumstances, practical matters, and in your personal feelings, suggest there are many more twists and turns to come.

Year to come

As you begin 2019, you’ll be facing disarray in a range of matters, some personal, others practical and a few involving close alliances. Discussions will lead to decisions and, often, plans or joint ventures, but with so much around you in transition, you’ll be aware these are a trial run, and probably won’t last. While that’s true, you can still learn a lot from them. Equally, be conscious that your own priorities are unlikely to be clear until 4 October, when dynamic Mars’s move into Libra triggers and cycle of frank discussion, planning, then action. While, as you begin this year, this may seem a long time to wait, when you learn between now and then will more than justify the patience required.
