Birthday Stars

It’s easy to say that being forthright is vital. But for you, as somebody born under the rulership of the gracious and tactful Venus, that variety of approach isn’t just uncomfortable, it’s worrying. Yet as you begin to adopt this uncharacteristically frank way of expressing your views, you’ll find that not only do others understand your ideas better, your own mind is clearer. Blend this with your usually charming nature. You’ll be amazed how well it works.

Sat 29 April - 2017


When others talk about the excitement of last minute ideas or offers, you enjoy hearing about each twist and turn, and the eventual outcome. But now that it’s your own circumstances, it’s another matter. Appealing as making a single, lasting decision may be, it’s simply isn’t going to happen.


You’ve defined and dealt with all sorts of practical matters, many of which have been on your mind for ages. While you’ve accomplished a great deal, with both Mercury and, as of the 28th, your ruler Venus accenting close alliances, your focus will shift to those links that are important now and those you’re hoping will take a major role in the future.


Obviously you’d prefer to discuss and resolve differences about the issues you’re facing, some minor, others more complex, without triggering dramas. Yet by 11 April, when the Libra Full Moon brings matters to a head, you realise both your feelings and those of others are as important as straightforward facts. Despite pressure, your own or from those who’re in a hurry, explore every option and discuss ideas until everybody is ready to commit. This slows the pace but results in decisions that last.

Year to come

Libra September 22 – October 22
Because Jupiter, planet of growth and opportunity, moved in to Libra in October 2016, you’ve probably already realised that the amazing events it promises won’t necessarily appear in the form you expected. Initially, in fact, they could be unrecognisable. Add the disruptive developments triggered by eclipses in February and August and it might seem things are getting worse. Actually, this is about broadening your horizons. This all comes together between 22 October and 9 December, while Mars, planet of ego and action, helps fine tune your perspective on your options, and teaches you to state clearly what your heart desires.
Love and Relationships
So often in life you’ve comprised your priorities to keep others happy. This could happen again early in 2017, but something tells you to discuss your own desires, and with an unaccustomed frankness. This clarifies your own thinking but, importantly, ensures others know what you’re aiming for.
Finances and Work
Jupiter’s about opportunities of every kind, but especially involving the practical and professional side of your life. Despite that, you’ll sometimes need to ask others for support and, as often, put yourself first. This might be tough initially, but you’ll soon be doing it, and loving it.
Health and Well Being
As an air sign, you sometimes forget to eat and, equally, can ignore the benefits of being out in the fresh air. Make looking after yourself a joint effort. Get family, friends or even colleagues involved, and you’ll not only feel better, you’ll have a good time doing what’s good for you.
