IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY
The setup in your birthday chart indicates a change of focus, both in your thinking and in your priorities. The move by Jupiter, planet of growth and abundance, to accent both your assets, what you earn and own, but as much your sense of self-worth, begins a cycle of questioning and expansion. Initially, what arises may seem unimportant but, as you explore and learn, you’ll realise you’re moving into new, and exciting, territory, and in many areas of your life.
Aries March 20 – April 19
Sometimes setbacks are exactly that, obstacles that slow your pace and must be overcome. However, those you’re currently facing are encouraging you to examine the pros and cons of certain potentially demanding arrangements in depth. While these could be challenging, the payoff could well justify the effort involved, if not be substantial.
Taurus April 20 – May 20
You rarely think about it. But the ability to win over others, even those who’re very difficult, that come with being ruled by Venus has become a real asset. Take good advantage of it. Still, bear in mind that with the actual circumstances in question shifting, you may need to rethink plans yourself.
Gemini May 21 – June 20
Disheartening as watching once promising ideas or ventures come undone may be, rather than being upset, you’re relieved. That’s because you’ve been so involved in making these happen, you haven’t really paused to think about your own feelings. Now that you are, you’re realising your excitement hasn’t just diminished, it’s completely gone.
Cancer June 21 – July 21
Usually, planning ahead isn’t just wise, it frees you to spend time exploring new options. But with the actual foundation on which those plans are based shifting, as the planets move into new positions, you’re better off focusing on changes and, perhaps, on elements of your life it’s time to let go of.
Leo July 22 – August 22
You’re not a control freak, as much as past experience has revealed not everybody shares your high standards. Consequently, you’re anxious leaving certain matters to others could lead to disappointing results. Still, you can’t deal with these yourself. Talk things over, then back off, grateful there’s someone who can do this for you.
Virgo August 23 – September 22
On 31 October, your ruler Mercury moved to accent the structure of your life, beginning a cycle during which you’ll be examining your domestic setup and activities out in the world. While this happens every year, it’s just been joined by fortunate Jupiter, which promises offers of many varieties. Explore them all.
Libra September 23 – October 22
Just when what only recently seemed promising situations looked to be sliding downhill, the mood is changing. And not only is it changing for the better, those who appeared not to care about the outcome of the matters in question aren’t just interested, they have some amazing solutions to suggest.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
A year ago, on 10 October 2017, the planet of growth, Jupiter, moved into Scorpio. While you won’t necessarily have been aware of an immediate change, looking back, life’s been full of exciting ideas and offers that this cycle is all about. While Jupiter’s departing, those welcome developments will continue for some time.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 20
While the independent side of your nature could well be regarded as an asset, you could also turn down offers that seem too easy. However, you’ve just begun a period of thrilling growth. Wonderful things are coming your way. If ever there was a time to say yes first, and ask questions later, it’s now.
Capricorn December 21 – January 19
This is a period of powerful growth, as is indicated by the movement of five of the planets into new positions within a period of just over two weeks. While some changes will be instantly clear, others will take time and a few will be difficult to discern. Still, each will influence your life.
Aquarius January 20 – February 17
From your point of view, a promise is exactly that. But not everybody shares that perspective and, in fact, certain individuals regard agreements of any kind as a fleeting idea more than anything lasting. Tempting as it is to try to change their attitude, be cautious. The odds are slim you’ll be successful.
Pisces February 18 – March 19
While you have a powerful philosophical streak, which enables you to be patient with frustrating people and in difficult circumstances, you’re unusually on edge. Take a break, for a day or, if that’s not possible, an hour. You will return restored, far more tolerant and, happily, feeling far more optimistic.
