Birthday Stars

While the New Moon influences everybody, and brings a fresh perspective on life itself, the fact it takes place on your birthday and is in Aries marks this as a turning point. You may already be considering saying farewell to certain elements of your life. Or, perhaps, breaking away from predictable activities or alliances. The trick is to maintain the foundations of your existing life while considering exactly which change you’ll be making.

Tue 28 March - 2017


Ordinarily, you’d be furious about being forced to halt progress in plans or projects, then begin again, and in a totally new direction. But that’s exactly what the current Aries New Moon, which is all about a fresh start, is telling you to do. Within days it will all make sense.


Since early March, you’ve faced confusion and a range of obstacles, all of which have been frustrating and slowed your pace. Finally circumstances permit frank conversations about these issues and, even better, Tuesday’s Aries New Moon leads to timely breakthroughs. However, these solutions aren’t instant, which means you’ll be doing lots of thinking, discussing ideas and exploring your options, well into next week.


February was all about decisions, some simple, others involving long term changes but each crucial in its own way. March is about the practical or financial side of what you’d already done and, even more, about future plans. The resulting analysis may slow your pace but will also ensure your time, money, ideas and even affections are being wisely employed. This may not be exciting. Still, deal with these in depth now and you’ll sidestep both unnecessary burdens and potential difficulties in the future.

Year to come

Aries March 20 – April 18
During this rewarding year, you’ll find yourself achieving personal goals and objectives, some longstanding. This is kick-started by your ruler, Mars, being positioned in Aries from 27 January to 10 March, which both focuses your mind and boosts your spirits. What you begin then will shape this year and many to come, as well. Plus, with fortunate Jupiter accenting close alliances, personal and out in the world, until October, working closely with others will bring remarkable benefits. This will be both exciting and challenging. In fact, you may need to slow your usual swift pace or even let others take the lead.
Love and Relationships
Despite your strong independent spirit, close relations with family, friends and even colleagues become a priority. Others take a greater role in your life, influencing everything from your tasks to your leisure time. Much as you love this, relinquishing control could sometimes be challenging.
Finances and Work
Imagination and teamwork are key. There’s the potential to benefit from new ideas, but because those are likely to come from others, you may need to let them take the lead. What you learn and the benefit you gain justify learning to be flexible.
Health and Well Being
During this demanding but exciting year, looking after yourself is even more important than usual. Since teamwork’s a theme, try partnering in your fitness routine. Similarly, coaching in your way of eating could smooth out those occasional ups and downs.
