Birthday Stars

For the past couple of years, decisions about your lifestyle, that is how and where you live, and even the timing of your day, have been substantially influenced by others, mostly those around you but also these in the wider world. While, you’ve had no real objections, certain elements of this routine have become restrictive. Not only can you alter, if not radically change, these, the time has come to discuss other elements of this routine as well. Worrying as this seems, it’s unlikely there’ll be objections of any kind.

Fri 18 October - 2019


Most Virgos have a powerful intuition. However, as a sensible earth sign and ruled by clever Mercury, while you may sense what’s worthwhile or wise, you’ll then insist on getting facts to back up those feelings. Except for now. With things moving so swiftly, your feelings are far more reliable.


Ordinarily, one of your strengths is your ability to focus on facts, both employing what you already know but, also, gathering necessary information. Yet with the foundation on which many arrangements are based shifting, what seems reliable may not be. While revelations may be disillusioning, as frequently they’ll confirm your doubts, even about what seems solid. And decisions? For now, stand back, wait and watch.


The practical side of your nature is working overtime, on one hand, examining the source of persistent problems but, also, gathering reliable information about new ideas. You’ll soon realise the foundation on which several such arrangements are based is shifting. Initially, this is worrying but you’re soon gathering facts that both explain a lot and, also, give you the courage to make major, and timely, changes. Take things slowly, with the actual circumstances shifting, your own thinking, and decisions, will evolve at a slow pace.

Year to come

You’re practical but if things don’t happen fast enough, the impatient side of your nature can be amazingly impulsive. While, in early 2019, that fast action works, during the rest of the year’s first half, you’re urged to take it slowly. Note which activities and alliances are no longer rewarding, then seek remedies. If these work, great. If not, bide your time until mid-August, when Mars, the planet of courage, ego and action, moves into Virgo for a seven week stay. Add the Virgo New Moon, on 30 August, and you’ll be benefiting from new ideas, offers and, possibly, encounters. These transform your circumstances and, equally, your ideas about what’s possible. This new optimism means that once-distant dreams could soon become part of your life.
