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


There’s talking about potential decisions. You’ve been doing a lot of that. And then there’s actually committing to future plans, which you will soon need to do. Restrictive as this seems, this is more about defining what and, perhaps, who you’ll concentrate on, not fixed arrangements you’ve no hope of changing.


Making it through the complex days between now and early September, when the current unruly planetary setup eases up, requires that you ignore what doesn’t work or certain irrational demands. Then focus on what you can do. That may seem risky. But as events unfold, many of those obstacles will vanish, clearing the way to accomplish what you currently have in mind, but without the aggravation.


Whatever you do, August’s twists and turns will demand sudden changes and, often, that you rethink plans, both longstanding and recent. This slows the pace but also enables you to reorganise elements of your life that have been a consistent source of frustration. However, with eclipses on the 7th and 21st triggering ongoing shakeups, ensure what you organise and your attitude are flexible. If ever there was a time to rid yourself of burdensome arrangements and make far-reaching changes, it’s now.

Year to come

Sagittarius November 22 – December 20
As you well know, your spontaneity, which is one of your greatest strengths, can sometimes be a weakness. This is one of the things you’ve learnt over the past year or so, while practical Saturn has been in Sagittarius. That, plus an emphasis on working closely with others, from family and friends to colleagues and even neighbours, has already shifted your perspective. So when you’re faced with sudden and often very tricky situations, especially those in March, August and September, you’ll pause, gather information and possibly seek guidance. What you learn so broadens your horizons, you’re actually thankful you’ve learnt to take life at a slower pace.
Love and Relationships
This period isn’t just about moving at a slower pace, it’s about getting to know others deeply yet gradually, even those who’ve been part of your life for ages. The time you take to talk, to reflect and understand their world, changes yours. And creates a closeness and warmth you didn’t realise was possible.
Finances and Work
You’ve already learnt to draw the line at pleasures and excesses that, only recently, you wouldn’t have thought about. This involves money, but also time and even your ideas. Better yet, you’re getting more for the efforts you make, sometimes in miraculous ways.
Health and Well Being
While some Sagittarians thrive on exercise, others moan at even at the thought of it. Whichever you are, you’re in a period during which getting out and about isn’t just a good idea, it’s essential. But this can be fun. All you need do is decide to make it so.
