Birthday Stars

Letting go of longstanding dreams isn’t easy. However, what begins now and unfolds over the coming months is about exactly that. When you conceived of certain plans or ideas ages ago, or more recent concepts, each has its own significance. Still, the powerful planetary shift in your birthday chart indicates a major review of your priorities and, thus, the need to reconsider these, especially in the light of recent, new and appealing, ideas. This more adventurous your approach to this process, the better.

Mon 10 December - 2018


The events triggered by the last week’s clash between your ruler Venus and the unpredictable Uranus were seriously unsettling. True, some were in the air. But others were such a surprise you didn’t know what to do. On reflection, that’s best, since despite events being unexpected, everything worked out brilliantly.


Being ruled by the charming Venus, you’re deft at winning others over to your ideas, almost without discussion. Yet certain of the situations you’re facing are more complex, and will require considerable thought and, possibly, persuasion. Even more, recognise that with the actual foundation on which these are based shifting, your own views, priorities and plans could shift too, and far more dramatically than you anticipated.


Usually, when others take over decisions regarding your life, you’re furious. However, during December you’ve relieved. Not only are the individuals in question better informed than you are, their intentions are good. Still, initially, their choices or those of destiny itself could worry you. Be patient. Even unwelcome changes are breakthroughs, as you’ll discover, but probably not until February or March. And in the meanwhile? Begin decluttering your life of plans and passions that you’re increasingly forced to admit are going nowhere.

Year to come

As a Taurus, you thrive on stability. Yet recently, life has become a little too predictable, so much you’ll welcome the new ideas, unexpected offers and changes that are the major theme for 2018. Some are no surprise, others a relief, but all about broadening your horizons via study, or exploring new ways or places to live or work. Sudden or impractical as these seem, your experiences, encounters and what you learn are preparing you for the exciting if unsettling cycle mid-year, when the inventive Uranus makes a temporary visit to Taurus, giving you a taste of the coming years’ excitement. If you can’t say a firm ‘yes’, at least explore what arises. The more you learn, the more optimistic you’ll be.

Love and Close Relationships
There’s a stubborn streak in your nature that, once you’ve made a plan sticks to it, despite changes going on around you. Since 2018 will bring regular shifts your way, you’re better off letting go of some of those plans. You may battle this, but it will be a huge relief.

Finance and Business
Once you recognise the world around you, and your own circumstances are shifting, then instead of battling new developments, you’ll adopt an adventurous approach. You’ll not only enjoy the year’s twists and turns, you’ll profit from them.
Change is in the air, especially in the financial realms. Yet you’re still sticking with arrangements you made, many long ago. At least rethink these. Once you begin to broaden your horizons, you’ll realise how many opportunities you’ve bypassed. Now is your chance to make up for lost time.

Health and Wellbeing
When life’s challenging, there are few things that lift your spirits more than relaxing with those whose company you enjoy and something delicious to eat. However, during 2018, you’ll want your body fit and mind clear, which means combining heathy eating with luxury, something you’ll learn about this year.
