Today's birthday: Having the stern, practical Saturn in Sagittarius for nearly three years has taught you patience, focus and, even more, that certain people and pursuits may be fun but are really a waste of time. You’ve learned to be tough about such matters and have benefitted from it. This birthday ends that cycle. What you’ve learned will shape plans and alliances that are demanding in the short term, but which promise long-term rewards. These lessons will pay off for the rest of your life.

Sagittarius: November 21-December 20 

Events are forcing you to reorganise some stable elements of your life. While you might be annoyed, you’ll soon realise that these changes are actually overdue.

Capricorn: December 21-January 19

Certain facts, which you don’t think should be widely known, must come out. The real question is how. The answer: slowly, point by point. You’ll be surprised how much others know.

Aquarius: January 20-February 18 

You’re strictly an observer of others’ adventures. Your enthusiasm could be mistaken for an intention to join in, which is decidedly not the case. Make that clear, gently, but firmly.

Pisces: February 19-March 19

Sudden but positive changes in circumstances could mean conducting a top-to-bottom rethink of your priorities. If ever there were a time to explore, it’s now.

Aries: March 20-April 18

Being a fire sign, you don’t mind sudden changes. However, what you’re currently dealing with is more than that. Disruptive as these changes may be, they’ll turn out brilliantly in the long run.

Taurus: April 19-May 19

You have an instinctive understanding of what’s important and what can wait. But with the planet of the unexpected, Uranus, taking a major role, things won’t go as smoothly as usual. Raise such matters before they become pressing.

Gemini: May 20-June 19

Looking back on a situation, you’ll be glad you were forced to make detailed plans. The facts that others insisted were necessary turned out to be highly informative. You learned a lot.

Cancer: June 20-July 21

You’ve been hoping that one particularly temperamental individual would see the problems he or she has been causing, but they’re getting worse. That’s because the person in question enjoys the attention and inconveniencing others.

Leo: July 22-August 21

Now that your ruler, the sun, has moved to join ideas planet Mercury, the accent is on cherished but troubled alliances. So, things are bound to change. Even more than that, new ideas are likely to arise.

Virgo: August 22-September 21

You’re reluctant to raise concerning issues with someone close, for fear of upsetting them. Not only should you raise these now, the individual in question will be relieved.

Libra: September 22-October 21 

Initially, you tried to conceal the extent of your differences with one particular individual by glossing over the issues, but now these can’t be ignored. Putting off those discussions will only make things worse.

Scorpio: October 22-November 20 

Last-minute changes in plans are unsettling. Still, those you’re currently battling are actually in everybody’s best interests. The sooner you reorganise things, the better.
