Birthday Stars

Everybody has certain dreams, some so far-fetched that they’re likely to remain exactly that, an inspiring but unlikely fantasy. But with a little thought and effort, others could become reality. Some are actually within your reach, which means you need only act on those ideas. Tempting as it is to say you’re still trying to get things ‘right’, you’re simply putting these off. The sooner you take action, the more swiftly they’ll become reality.

Sun 17 February - 2019


Because you rarely discuss it, those around you, even those closest, are unaware how much you suffer when you’re unwittingly unkind or harsh. While, obviously, this is unintentional, on occasion your words come out that way. Say something. It needn’t be an apology, but simply mentioning it would mean a lot.


You’re sensible, so always weigh every option before taking action. However, the heightened feelings triggered by Tuesday’s emotionally intense Virgo Full Moon could lead to words, actions or decisions as sudden as they are irrational. Actually, that’s best, because this involves what, and who, you care about most, which can only be dealt with on the basis of your deepest feelings, not hard facts.


Because you invest serious time and thought in planning, once things are organised, there’s rarely a need for change. But with seemingly solid elements of your world shifting, some not unexpectedly but others suddenly, you’ll be discussing new and often unexpected options. While unsettling in the short term, this is breaking up patterns you didn’t even realise were restrictive. By the Virgo Full Moon on 19 February, you’ll be considering options that previously never crossed your mind or, perhaps, weren’t possible. Explore them all.

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.
