TANYA OBREZA was born in Slovenija and emigrated to Australia with her parents as a young girl. It was during her first visit to England that Tanya was introduced to astrology, and in 1980 she gained her London Faculty of Astrological Studies qualifications.

STAR OF THE MONTH
22 November – December 21
As one year spins into another, the planets encourage a review. Clearing the bills is an obvious move, but one that should start in the new year. It’d be daft not to enjoy the Christmas fun! After February, you should grab some quiet moments for that personal recap. There’s no hurry - all should be done at a gradual, graceful pace. Soon enough, the only surviving situations will be those of your choosing. In the meantime, December brings a time for raiding the sales. Don’t be shy about spending a few dollars - you deserve it, guilt-free. For now, you need only exert yourself in the pursuit of pleasure. Clear head and heart in preparation for a better, bolder 2020.
December 22 – January 19
Tidy your affairs early in the month, and you can look forward to a stress-free Christmas. It’s been a tough year, so allow more than a few days for rest. Life feels happier after the 24th, with your social life and sexuality soaring. And don’t worry too much about money. The planets stop siphoning Capricorn wallets and do their pilfering elsewhere. The new year celebrations bring extra festivities, and perhaps some new romance.
20 January – 18 February
With another year coming to an end, Aquarians are granted the right to reflect. Rather than move forward, you’re likely to pore over past mistakes. Don’t be so hard on yourself. With hindsight, these “mistakes” were probably blessings in disguise. If you see this as a chance to lay old demons to rest, you can resolve grievances rather than let them fester. Then allow yourself a few weeks to just relax and have fun. Enjoy the festivities ahead.
19 February – 20 March
Confusing emotions plague early December, as do erratic desires. It’s not until the festivities start that a hint of confidence enables you to regain control. Ask for what you want; it’s counterproductive to feign satisfaction. Early in 2020, look forward to substantial changes at work and at home. Meanwhile, you may as well surrender what’s left of your finances to the silly season.
21 March – 20 April
The pursuit of happiness can be difficult. Still, it shouldn’t stop you from having fun. Whether you’re exploring romance or being flirtatious, this month Ariens are ready to take wilder risks. Unfortunately, it’s not all play. By the new year, you’re jostled back into the workforce. Meanwhile, the festive season couldn’t be a better time to disconnect the autopilot and feel the thrill of free-fall.
21 April – 20 May
Endless problems have chipped away at many Taurean spirits. Not so now. Despite feeling tired, you should find this a triumphant month. No longer the victim, you’ll be mounting sharper defences. Professionally, you’re better able to make the right choices. Should love or unexpected romance mount a sneak attack, relax - it’s all friendly fire. Travel, too, will bring surprises. Looks like a fabulous festive season ahead.
21 May – 21 June
Saturn might try to send your financial confidence into a spin, but Jupiter helps lift your spirits. If you’re wondering what could make life happier, think love and friendship - just the thing for the festive season. Be aware, though, that others may not be honest with financial facts and it’s up to you to prise the truth out of them. This could call for a degree of cunning and patience. It may take until the new year to see the real figures.
22 June – 22 July
With most enjoying the silly season, there could be a noticeable lack of Cancerians in the conga line. Instead, you’re determined to claim a triumphant year’s end - but there’s a danger of overload. Finish your tasks, but still give festivities a look-in. Your reward? Sentimental ties may be renewed. Singles are happily surprised, while couples opt for a change in scenery — a fabulous end to a busy year.
23 July – 22 August
Slow down, Leo. December asks that you let some of that stress fall away. You should rediscover the art of play, and just before all the Christmas madness starts, you can expect finances to improve. If so, don’t deny yourself a few luxuries. The same applies to love. You may find a karmically linked soul but watch your expectations. The higher you place a friend or lover on a pedestal, the further they have to fall.
23 August – 22 September
Chances are you have a host of unfinished projects that are ready to be trashed. Great timing, as the cosmos offers exciting new starts for the new year. You become more ambitious, with a growing awareness of your talents. In doing so, unacceptable conditions are no longer tolerated. Just don’t assume authority on every topic. It’s a sure bet someone with more knowledge will call your bluff. Meanwhile, holiday travel looks likely.
23 September – 22 October
Librans still cling to the work ethic while others are setting the scene for fun. After the 17th, allow yourself the same seasonal liberties. Even though you’re coming to the party later than most, you gain in the attraction stakes as Venus puts together a killer new image and attitude. You’re less discriminating than usual. Fewer inhibitions can only mean a lot more fun. Celebrate year’s end as you never have before!
23 October – 21 November
Everything needs a great finale, including a year like 2019. It’s been a troubling time, but you’re now resolved to grab a better future. Your determination sets off a chain reaction that can’t help but lead to success. There’s every chance that you’ll secure a long-lasting alliance - whether it’s romantic or platonic is up to you. Meanwhile, celebrate the season. This is your reward time, so enjoy a little financial flamboyance or travel.
