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


Even during seriously unsettled periods, certain individuals decide firmly to make and stick to a single plan. While in the past their persistence has worked, even at their most determined they couldn’t sidestep the current disarray. Get involved, and they could blame you. Irrational as this sounds, for now, steer clear of them.


Weeks ago, you realised that between your ruler Mercury retrograde and this month’s dramatic planetary activity, even simple plans won’t go as expected. While you adopted a relaxed approach to this disarray, others didn’t. Now they’re moaning about those changes. Ignore them and instead focus on future plans. This avoids pointless discussions about what went wrong, and allows you to turn those changes into dazzling new ideas.


Usually you’re the first to spot new trends and discuss them with those who’re in the know. However, with your ruler Mercury retrograde from 13 August until 5 September, you’ll be short of facts and unsure of your priorities. Still, seek out gathering vital information, then discuss your insights with others. State your views, explaining you’re no more sure of the outcome than anybody else. Having clarified that, make a joint effort to explore changes in existing arrangements and future plans.

Year to come

Gemini May 20 – June 20
This is your kind of year, one with enough excitement and change to keep you happy, yet the variety of challenges you thrive on. Better yet, things move swiftly from one plan to the next and, happily, most things fall into place easily. If there’s any challenge it’s dealing with those who either dislike or are actually uneasy about this degree of transition. Instead of saying something amusing to distract them, delve into their concerns. While your efforts will calm them, their concerns could prove to be informative. Better yet, you’ll achieve more as a team than you would have on your own.
Love and Relationships
The secret to keeping others happy is simple. Update them regularly. And in depth. This applies to everything from family and loved ones to colleagues. The worst thing you could do is spring a fully planned arrangement on somebody close. You wouldn’t mind, but they will.
Finances and Work
Plan ahead. This is a year of examining what works, what doesn’t and most of all, exploring your options but probably not actually committing to major ideas or arrangements. That’s in 2018. This may seem ages from now, but what arises then will be worth waiting for.
Health and Well Being
With so much to think about you can easily neglect the all important routine of eating well and getting your body moving. The trick is to make it social, whether it’s a course in healthful cooking or going running with pals.
