Stu's Stars

A loose interpretation of the celestial skies, with particular reference to the New Year.

Happy Gift Box

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19) Happy Birthday!

If you’re one of those goats born too close to Christmas or New Year’s Day for anyone to get excited about your birthday, then take solace from the fact that your home planet (Saturn apparently! Who’d have guessed?) is pairing up with Aquarius. What a team! You’ll be unstoppable. Treat yourself to a big coat with poppers and secret pockets and learn to love winter instead of spending the whole time pining for summer.

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 19)

Your inventive nature is set to bloom as January ends, so look forward to that. Maybe dig out your old drawing board and get sketching in the meantime, so you’re ready when inspiration strikes. We could all use a smoke alarm that can tell the difference between a house fire and breakfast. Just a suggestion... 

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)

Pisces is a mutable sign. Crikey! But don’t worry, all that means is you’re flexible, have a flair for diplomacy and know how to roll with the blows. You can count on celestial assistance for the first part of the year too - up till the end of June. Beef up your diet with more veggies for a healthy glow.       

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)

Taking the most direct path is rarely the fastest way to reach a destination. There are usually mountains or rivers in the way which have little regard for your horns and determination. So even though you’re sizzling with energy as the year starts, don’t forget to program your SatNav. 


Taurus (Apr 21 - May 20)

Dig your hooves in and refuse to budge. The universe has had beef with you for far too long now and it’s time to sit it down and give it a good grilling. Who on earth does it think it is? Maybe avoid planning anything bigger than a wild party though. It never hurts to be practical.

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)

The first week of January is set to be a hoot (courtesy of an irresistible ‘air sign’ pair-up) lending you fresh perspective and wisdom. Learn what you can while your world fizzes and pops with the smart stuff but don’t forget to eat properly. And stay hydrated. And wrap up warm. You may be on fire inside but it’s going to be chilly out there.

Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 22)

The moon is your pal this year, more than ever! You’ll be rattling with energy and purpose in the middle of the month so don’t squander it. Plan something fun to lift people’s spirits as the winter grinds on like a turgid grey lump of cold porridge. Have an early pancake day! People love pancakes. And cake. There must be cake. 

Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22)

Research indicates that Leos only make things happen when they step outside the box. Leos tend to wonder what box we are talking about here and how exactly the lion got into the box in the first place. Hmm. Have you ever had a cat? Put one in a room with a cardboard box and observe...   

Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)

Things are likely to become confusing or maybe even a little chaotic around the 14th of this month, so maybe perform a little early spring clean on your panic room/bunker. Luckily you know how to shut out distractions and interference. Give your common sense a workout while you’re at it. You’ll need lots of that later. And pie! Fruit or savoury - both work.

Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22)

It’s perfectly normal to enjoy your role as Peacemaker General, even though it doesn’t exactly put a strain on your formidable brainpower. You can safely slob out in that role for all of January but bigger things are in the pipeline. Treat yourself to some funky new togs while the sales are on. 

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 22) 

You’ll feel like you want to come out of your shell this January and make the most of the winter weather. Talk as many of your buddies as you can into winter adventures. Especially if you have any Capricornian buddies. They’ll bicker and moan but they’ll love you for it in the end.

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)

Jupiter can’t make its mind up what it wants this year and is likely to fidget at length, leaving you free to laugh, learn and love to your heart’s content. When the ruling planet’s away you’d be a fool not to play. Wear more hats!
