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


Few things are more annoying than, having made a plan, being forced by unexpected events to rethink everything. Except, judging by this complicated but exciting week, each day’s twists and turns will add a new excitement to your life. While some benefits will be clear right away, others will surface over time.


Welcome if unexpected events are one thing but the sudden changes triggered by the alliance between the Sun and Uranus, in Taurus, are another matter. While, initially, they could seem unrealistic or worrying, you’ll soon realise they’re breakthroughs, although in a new and unfamiliar form. For now, explore everything. This isn’t about making a single plan now but, rather, undertaking a journey of discovery.


The arrival of Uranus, planet of innovation and the unexpected, in Taurus on 6 March, began a cycle of change, in habits but, even more, in your world. Previously, your priority has been creating a productive, rewarding and happy, and importantly stable lifestyle. But now you’re restless. And, happily, you’re being given opportunities to explore that new mood personally, domestically, socially or at work. Consider the unfamiliar. While, you’ll definitely learn something, you could be thrilled by what, only recently, you’d have firmly refused.

Year to come

Interesting as others’ ideas and adventures may be, you like to know what to expect. Yet as you’ll have learnt between May and November of 2018, when the unpredictable Uranus, visited Taurus, sudden developments can be as rewarding as they are disruptive. Remember this from 6 March, Uranus returns to Taurus, to remain until 2026 - kick-starting a cycle of extensive growth. Disruptive as what arises seems, each change is introducing worthwhile new places, people and ideas. While unfamiliar initially, each will add something special, if unexpected, to your life. Because this influences the world around you, the more involved you get, the more you and others will both benefit from and enjoy what will, on reflection, prove to be a wonderfully adventurous chapter of your life.
