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


For ages you’ve been annoyed by pointless rules or regulations. Worse, despite your best efforts to get them changed, nobody has any idea where to begin. Don’t give up. With the actual circumstances on which certain matters are based shifting, these could be altered, and without you saying a word.


The past weeks have been tricky, not only because of the numerous twists and turns in your own life and around you. Also, certain individuals have seemed determined to be difficult, if not actually obstructive. You tried reasoning with them, but that only made it worse. Out of character as it is, do the minimum. And wait and watch. You’ll soon know what to do, and when.


Being a diligent Virgo, you sometimes long to shed burdensome duties and decisions. However, when circumstances shift certain obligations elsewhere, if only temporarily, you’re annoyed – and concerned. Actually, bizarre as others’ ideas and plans seem, they’re all interesting and some will work far better than you’d imagined. So much, that when you regain control, you surprise yourself by being unenthusiastic about putting things back the way they were. Even more, you’re unexpectedly intrigued by further exploration of new yet bizarre ideas and options.

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.
