Friday - - Your Stars -


There are many va­ri­eties of suc­cesses, and dur­ing the past 12 months, since Septem­ber 2016, when the for­tu­nate Jupiter moved to ac­cent your life, you be­gan a cy­cle of growth and ex­plo­ration.

Of course, it may not have seemed that way ini­tially. At first you were put in one un­ex­pected, strange or un­wel­come sit­u­a­tion after an­other. Only now that you’re look­ing back on these is it clear how much you’ve learnt, who you’ve met and how events broad­ened your hori­zons.

So now, with Au­gust’s two eclipses in­tro­duc­ing yet more that’s un­fa­mil­iar, you’ll recog­nise those sur­prises as op­por­tu­ni­ties, if in dis­guise. The se­cret is to ex­plore ev­ery­thing, in­clud­ing what holds lit­tle prom­ise or, per­haps, you’re sure you’d hate. Maybe. But cir­cum­stances have changed and so, too, have you.

If it’s about work, pos­si­bly re­defin­ing your role, give it a try. If it’s about a new daily regime, dare to be dif­fer­ent. In ev­ery case, this is pre­par­ing you for the ex­pe­ri­ences and en­coun­ters that will im­prove your life. While some will be no sur­prise, others will be as un­ex­pected as, ul­ti­mately, they’ll be thrilling.


You quite rightly pride your­self on your abil­ity to main­tain your cool, and your much ad­mired clear per­spec­tive, even when there’s con­fu­sion around you and others are anx­ious, if not strug­gling to im­pose or­der on chaos.

While you might feel just as uneasy, you long ago learnt there’s noth­ing to be gained by – to use the clever phrase – turn­ing a cri­sis into a drama. Rather, you’ll with­draw qui­etly, con­sider re­al­is­tic op­tions, then take ac­tion on what­ever seems wis­est.

Yet, as you’ll al­ready have no­ticed, this year is about ven­tur­ing into new and of­ten very un­fa­mil­iar ter­ri­tory, but in terms of mak­ing and deal­ing with money. True, the way this side of life func­tions is chang­ing. But most Tau­re­ans, whether in or out of the fi­nan­cial busi­ness, will se­lect a range of in­vest­ments that mix the safe or tra­di­tional meth­ods with a few ex­cit­ing and pos­si­bly un­proven ven­tures. It’s the same with your skills or ta­lents. Of­ten you’ll need to rene­go­ti­ate.

What’s most im­por­tant, and ul­ti­mately ben­e­fi­cial are those sit­u­a­tions where events draw you into new ac­tiv­i­ties, ways of think­ing and even work­ing. Far out, if not un­re­al­is­tic, as these seem ini­tially, ul­ti­mately you’ll recog­nise how prof­itable they are.


As a Taurus, and some­body ruled by the planet that ac­cents re­la­tion­ships of all va­ri­eties, Venus, you in­vest a lot of thought, time, en­ergy, and most im­por­tantly heart, into cre­at­ing and main­tain­ing healthy al­liances with those around you. In fact, others are drawn to you be­cause of this charm and your car­ing at­ti­tude.

Yet when ten­sions arise, as they will have around the time of eclipses dur­ing the first half of 2017, on Fe­bru­ary 11 and 26, you were un­sure what to say or do. Since then, you’ve been able to ob­serve both the sit­u­a­tions others were deal­ing with and, equally, when the mo­ment was right, you en­cour­aged them to talk and you did a lot of lis­ten­ing.

So now, as you’re look­ing ahead to the year’s se­cond half, you’re op­ti­mistic. The fact is, it’s about find­ing a new bal­ance, both in fam­ily and long­stand­ing re­la­tion­ships. But in those that are new or, if you’re seek­ing some­body spe­cial, pa­tience is es­sen­tial.

On Oc­to­ber 10, the for­tu­nate Jupiter moves to ac­cent all such al­liances, and from that point on­ward, while ten­sions will melt, new, of­ten un­ex­pected and life-en­hanc­ing en­coun­ters will re­store your faith in life – and in love.


Is­sues on the do­mes­tic or work front reach a head, then lead to con­struc­tive dis­cus­sions and prof­itable, if com­pletely un­ex­pected, break­throughs.

What’s most im­por­tant, and ben­e­fi­cial are those sit­u­a­tions where EVENTS DRAW you into new ac­tiv­i­ties, ways of think­ing and even work­ing. Far out, if not un­re­al­is­tic, ul­ti­mately you’ll recog­nise how PROF­ITABLE they are
