Birthday Stars

As a Leo and a fire sign, you quite rightly pride yourself on your commitment to what and who matters most in life, and to your willingness to stand up for these. Consequently, you’ll be cautious about the sudden and, often, tempting ideas or offers coming your way, especially as they’re still taking form. Despite that, and the patience required, these are the beginning of a rewarding new cycle. Say yes. You won’t regret it.

Sun 20 August - 2017


Some changes can be anticipated, analysed and planned for. Those that are being triggered by August’s two eclipses, including the current powerful solar eclipse, are about introducing events so new that it’s unlikely you’ll recognise their potential. Now and over the coming days, explore everything and say no to nothing.


If you’ve already learnt the lesson offered by the tricky unruly planetary activity during August’s first half, instead of struggling to rein in this week’s changes, you’ll observe, learn and plan. But unless action is pressing, you’ll hold back until the dust settles, in a few weeks’ time. Does that seem forever? That’s because one of the lessons you’re learning is how to be patient.


Ordinarily obstacles are meant to be overcome but now they’re slowing your pace and, mostly, encouraging a review of existing arrangements and, even more, your future plans. This is timely, because the actual foundation on which these are based are shifting. So ask yourself questions about goals you’ve regarded as unchanging, then discuss what you learn with those who’re key in your personal and working life. What you discover could lead to a timely, if not overdue, shift in your thinking and priorities.

Year to come

Capricorn December 21 – January 18
You, as a Capricorn, might well have prided yourself on being somewhat of a control freak. During the past year or so, while your ruler Saturn has been positioned in the most strategic and reflective portion of your chart, however, you’ve had to watch, wait and leave things to others. While this wasn’t easy at the time, you’ve learnt to let go, and in ways you thought impossible. During 2017, especially during March, May, August and November, you’ll spot situations you’d once have found worrying and will, instead, observe. And, if you do make a move, you’ll approach things differently. This breaks old patterns and frees you to live, work and love with a new focus – and passion.
Love and Relationships
Often in the past trust has been an issue. While you’ve managed close alliances, from family to loved ones and partners, being truly vulnerable with them has been another matter. Now you explore exactly that. And you discover why it’s wonderful.
Finances and Work
Usually you’re well in control of life’s practicalities but, lately, events have taken over. While worrying initially, you’ve learnt it’s not about doing things your way but, rather, shifting your perspective. As you do, new and possibly completely unexpected opportunities appear.
Health and Well Being
When you’re in the mood to look after yourself, you do so, and spectacularly. Yet when you get out of the habit, as could easily happen during 2017, you look and feel worse. The solution? Not discipline but fun. Did you ever consider jazz dancing as exercise? It, and lots of other ways of moving to music, will do the trick.
