Your birthday has come around and what better time could there be for taking stock. Remind yourself of your talents, face your challenges and get set for a great year ahead.
Your sign is Fixed Earth, making you practical, sensible and reliable. Usually people know they can count on you to do what you say, say what you mean, and to be where you say you’ll be. You’re a creature of habit. Routine and consistency make you feel good, and you put security and comfort at the top of your list. The pleasures of life are what motivate you – good food, nice clothes, a cosy home – and you are prepared to work steadily to get what you want. Probably you aren’t ambitious, exactly. Getting to the ‘top’, wherever that may be, sounds draughty and uncomfortable. For you a secure position is fine and ‘enough is as good as a feast.’
However, your realism and down-to-earth approach often result in you achieving more than you expect. Generally you are ‘good’ with money, and although you are tempted by luxuries you rarely spend more than you earn. In relationships you are faithful and dependable. You’re very sexy and sensuous, also very aware of the needs of your loved one. However, you can be extremely jealous and possessive if the occasion arises. Usually you are long-suffering but if pushed too far you can lose it, big-style, and even be destructive, so you prefer to avoid confrontation. Tactile and creative, you may be a talented artist, sculptor or musician, although you may prefer to rely on something more consistent to ensure a steady income. You have a wonderful gift of enjoying life’s simple pleasures, and although you may seem a little materialistic, your way of living in the ‘now’ is a natural mindfulness, that gives you your own brand of spirituality. Carry on sending out that lovely, peaceful vibe – the world needs it!
• You can be dreadfully stubborn. There’s no point digging your heels in just for the sake of it.
• Sometimes trying new things is good for you, so why diss an idea just because it’s unfamiliar?
• Although you prefer to ‘tell it like it is’ there’s no point hurting someone just to give a dose of what you call reality. Keep schtum.
• Remember that your view of the world, however sensible and workable, never will be the only view.
• Never talk yourself out of your imagination, for it will stimulate your creativity.
Relationships may continue to be rather hard work, as you are reminded of your obligations. However, you know where you stand, which can be empowering, and everything can be placed on firmer foundations, going forwards. The movement of Jupiter into your House of Romance and Creativity, in August, gives you more scope to express yourself. Make plans to develop your talents, for you can find ways to put these into practice that you may not have imagined, and also to be noticed and appreciated. Although you may not think of yourself as particularly adventurous, for a few years now something deep within you has been prompting you to try something new. Give that some space, because if you bottle it up or tell yourself not to be silly, discontent could cause you to make mistakes. The coming twelve months can be interesting and stimulating. No-one is going to make you leave your comfort zone, but if you do the chances are you’ll find the grass really is greener – so why not have a go!
