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


By no means are you anti-social. However, when it comes to explaining about tiresome details, you’ve a short attention span. This means that once certain matters have been discussed, you prefer not to revisit the topic. While that’s understandable, recent changes are crucial, and need to be reviewed and in detail.


Times of change, such as this is, are exciting and fun. Yet what’s happening now requires lots of rethinking of plans and long term reorganisation. While, ordinarily, you’d tackle such matters swiftly, with the actual changes unfolding over the coming months, you’ll need to ensure arrangements are flexible. This will require considerable thought, but when those frequent changes arise, they’ll well justify the effort.


The pace is swift, and mostly life’s about thrilling ideas and opportunities. But you’re also contending with frequent disruptive developments, especially involving practical or financial matters. Those whose advice you trust say wait until things are calmer. While, that would be wise, all of 2019 will be a rollercoaster of change, in your life but also in the world around you. The tricky is to declare your interests, organise finances for the coming months, but ensure arrangements are flexible. Long terms plans? They can wait.

Year to come

The move by your ruler Jupiter into Sagittarius, in November, 2018, began a year of excitement, growth and good fortune. While you’ll profit from your past efforts, offers and new ideas will appear from out of the blue. Explore whatever arises, conscious you won’t pursue everything but will learn from it all. As a quick-thinking fire sign, you’ll plunge in, confident you’ll benefit from each day’s experiences. By late August, when the powerful planetary presence in discerning Virgo clarifies what’s working and what isn’t, you’ll shed certain ventures or alliances, and focus more on others. Still, be wary of committing to far-reaching plans, simply because the foundation on which these are based is shifting – in your favour – and will continue to do so until well into 2020.
