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.

Tue 23 April - 2019


Ordinarily, you’re able to shake off the unsettling feelings triggered by even unfair situations or unsavoury encounters. Yet they won’t go away. While they aren’t as much of a presence, they also haven’t vanished. What’s more, you’re still contending with the influence of those behind them. It would be unwise to underestimate their influence.


Ordinarily, when plans are being discussed or decisions have to be made, you’re there, expressing your thoughts but, also, asking what others are thinking. Now, however, certain individuals are in charge and you’re concerned. They’re unimaginative, rousing fears of dull arrangements. That’s possible. If so, quietly do something else, maybe with somebody else. The time has come to broaden your horizons.


March will have been a tricky month, with strange and often bizarre changes in plans, distracting obligations and surprising complications. While April brings more of the same, you’ll have begun to realise that what you’re least enthusiastic about turns out to be most rewarding. That’s the point. You’re being introduced to worthwhile new places, people and ideas. While you’ll spot the promise of some swiftly, others take time. Knowing that, regard each day and encounter as an intriguing and, potentially rewarding experience.

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.
