Birthday Stars

Your pride is one of your ‘signature’ characteristics. However, your birthday chart accents rethinking who and what comes first, and even how you look after yourself and your own interests. Certain arrangements, personal, professional or even financial remain part of your life out of habit more than anything else, and they’re costing you in a variety of ways. You know what some are, and are ignoring them, but are unaware of others. Take that first step, and the rest will become clear.

Tue 21 August - 2018


Planning ahead may be a virtue and, often, efficient. Do too much forward thinking now, however, and you could complicate matters. At the moment, you’re better off reviewing what you’re doing and your priorities. Once you begin, you’ll spot a number of situations where you realise that changes would be both wise and timely.


As a Libra, an air sign, and somebody who prefers to think things through, the recent swift pace of events has been exhausting. True, this means lots was dealt with in a very short time. Tempting as it is to review and rethink arrangements, for now do nothing. Once the dust settles, in a few weeks’ time, you’ll be viewing those changes from a very different angle.


One of the biggest challenges for you, as a Libra, is acknowledging that, currently, clashes with others can’t be avoided. What’s more, you’re wrestling with several such issues. Once you stop hoping for a peaceable solution, you’ll begin to address those problems frankly and manage to reach an accord far more swiftly than you’d conceived possible. But, also, these discussions reveal that certain once-prized objectives are no longer worthwhile. This frees you, and just as you begin the process of exploring new options.

Year to come

With Jupiter, planet of growth, expansion and good fortune, having been in Libra for most of 2017, you begin this year with lots of ideas in mind. While you may have already acted on a few, you’re unsure about whether you should take others forward, and if so, exactly what your plan should be. This confusion is no surprise. With the thorough, cautious Saturn accenting these changes, either plans will proceed slowly or as you learn more, you’ll be forced to rethink things. Actually, this is best, since with the basis on which those arrangements are based shifting, figuring out what’s best will take time. Still, events around the Libra New Moon on 9 October, should clear the way.

Love and Close Relationships
Only months ago, you wouldn’t have believed you’d be tackling, and still less, discussing certain issues that you’ve been carefully avoiding, some for ages. Yet circumstances are giving you no choice. Even more amazing is the fact that once you’re accustomed to these frank discussions, you find yourself taking this approach in a range of situations.

Finance and Business
It’s the rare Libra who lives to make money. Even those who adore business, and there are many, like the challenging and, often, manipulating people, and enjoy the freedom and leisure that being successful brings. But now, with bountiful Jupiter accenting this side of life, you actually can have it all.

Health and Wellbeing
Being an air sign, and ruled by the luxury-loving Venus, you’re more likely to exercise or eat well if what you’re doing is interesting and, ideally, in a beautiful setting. And why not? Forget sweaty gyms and head for the most elegant spa you can find. After that, the rest will be easy.
