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


Few things are more aggravating than, having carefully organised a plan, things being thrown into chaos. Disastrous as the coming days’ changes may seem initially, they’re introducing you to new ideas or even an entirely different approach to certain longstanding arrangements. At least explore what’s arisen. You won’t regret it.


As a cautious, thorough Scorpio, ordinarily you’d struggle with the dramatic and far-reaching changes triggered by Monday’s eclipsed New Moon. But your instincts are correctly telling you these aren’t just timely, they’d lead to breakthroughs beyond anything you’d imagined possible. How? Those facts will surface later. If anybody asks, say nothing. Instead, adopt a mysterious attitude, then quietly savour this thrilling period of your life.


If you’ve learnt from recent events that what seem obstacles are actually prompting you to explore your options, then when August’s sudden changes arise, you won’t battle them, you’ll ask questions. While some will have straightforward answers, most developments will be ongoing and, in many cases, be far-reaching. Get involved. If changes are personal, seek insights from experts and if they influence others, too, join together to learn what you can. This won’t just be informative, often you’ll form new and rewarding relationships.

Year to come

Scorpio October 23 – November 21
Diverse as the situations you face during 2017 seem, they’re all about eliminating potentially restrictive habits, attitudes or ways of thinking. So the events triggered by eclipses in February and August may seem disruptive but, actually, they’re encouraging you to broaden your horizons. It’s the same with tensions in usually harmonious relationships, personal or professional. This is preparing you for Jupiter’s move into Scorpio, on 10 October, for a year’s stay. This period is about sheer good fortune, but often the variety that results from broadening your horizons. And this requires being inquisitive. Develop the habit as 2017 begins, and you’ll be ahead of the game.
Love and Relationships
Although your instincts say the unsettled events you’re experiencing are hugely promising, you long for reassurance. However, because this unsettled year also influences others, they’ll need you, too. The solution? Create a mutual support system. It will be surprisingly easy and work brilliantly.
Finances and Work
Inevitably, cycles of growth, even if it’s welcome, are costly, and not just in terms of money. Time, energy and even relationships can suffer. Acknowledge that to yourself and, where appropriate, explain it to others and, amazingly, all will be well.
Health and Well Being
During periods of change, you tend to hold your breath, both literally and metaphorically, until things are settled. But this goes on all year, which means it’s time to take up some form of relaxing exercise and, possibly, a practice that will calm your mind as well.
