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


Obviously, you enjoy discussing intriguing ideas and turning them into plans. However, judging by the current link between Mercury and the practical Saturn, your focus needs to be on clear objectives and hard facts, not exciting but vague possibilities. This may be dull in the short term, but will pay off handsomely.


The obvious way to deal with obstacles, yours or those causing problems for others, is to sidestep them. However, judging by the series of challenging aspects to your ruler Jupiter, these are about what you can learn, not making swift progress. So sideline future planning and, instead, focus on exploring everything you can do or learn, and meeting everybody you can. You won’t regret it.


Ordinarily you’re easygoing about changes, even those that are unexpected or annoying, mostly because even big surprises have proved amazingly rewarding. Yet recent experiences of have made you both weary and wary of yet more unsettling events. While disruptive, these are leading to breakthroughs, that is, to ideas, activities or pursuits you’d never think of yourself. No matter how grumpy you feel, explore these. At minimum, you’ll learn something but, in reality, once you learn more, your mood will be transformed.

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.
