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


Although you’re adept at dealing with last minute developments, you prefer to know what’s coming and, more important, have time to learn about how best to handle any changes. With things moving so swiftly and often being completely unexpected, you’ll be making it up as you go along.


Being a cautious Virgo, you pride yourself on your ability to discern those offers that are worth pursuing versus those that are appealing but unreliable. But with your ruler Mercury retrograde until early May, even your analysis may not be accurate. The solution? Forget your usual analysis. Explore everything, even what seems impractical, and reject nothing. Bizarrely, what seems least promising could work best in the long run.


Actually, April’s major turning point is the Virgo Full Moon, on 12 March. Both events and the resulting decisions you experience then will shape the following several months. These are timely, if not overdue. Your challenge is to take action before plans are finalised. While, initially, this seems risky, you soon realise that these, too, are shifting, so all arrangements, small and large, should be regarded as tentative. Strange as this seems initially, you soon recognise how much freedom this approach gives you.

Year to come

Virgo August 22 – September 21
The first half of 2017 is about decluttering both your thinking and your life. This is needed. But as time moves on and you eliminate everything from burdensome relationships to unworkable arrangements, professional or otherwise, yet there’s little new to replace these, and you could worry. Being patient isn’t easy. But the boost to both your spirits and your life triggered by Mars’ presence in Virgo from 5 September to 22 October makes up for it all. This is about exploration and action, not finalising anything. So consider what long terms plans might look like but take your time making lasting arrangements.
Love and Relationships
The part of you that thrives on routine may struggle during this exciting if unpredictable year. Still, you’ll soon discover that discussing changes, and talking over potential plans with others isn’t just informative, it draws you closer.
Finances and Work
Because eclipses in February and August influence your daily routine and working life, sudden events could throw things into disarray. While unsettling, you swiftly spot this as the chance you’ve been waiting for to make dramatic, but badly needed, changes.
Health and Well Being
As a Virgo, you have an instinct for what your body needs and doesn’t, so eat wisely. Your stress levels are another matter entirely. You say you’ll calm down when life does. Instead, adopt a practice, even one as simple as a daily walk, to achieve that serenity amid this year’s excitement.
