Love Astrology is dedicated to two of my favourite things, Love and Astrology. I have always been interested and fascinated by this pseudoscience for as long as I can remember. Before I started applying Astrology to my life I didn't really have much idea who I was, or where I was going, but now I am fully aware of both my positives and negatives alike, and this has lead to a much fuller and calmer lifestyle. I hope by spending some time on my site you too can reap the benefits of this ancient and fascinating subject. Enjoy! Love & Light, Becky.
There is a lot written about the cusp online and in books but much of it is written in such a complicated manner its as though you need some kind of astro degree to understand it. I always endeavour to write in a way that everyone can understand, as astrology affects us all not just those who choose to study it and learn extra long words.
Many people write to me to tell me that they don’t think their characteristics match that of their given Sun sign and ask why this is. Just looking at a person’s Sun sign is never going to give you the full picture as their is so much more going on in someone’s birth chart. However, a lot of the time when you explain that they were born ‘on the cusp’ everything becomes clearer.
Being born on the cusp just means that you came into the world on the day the given sign changes or is about to change. For example, if you were born on the 23rd September you may be brought up to believe you are a Libra, but you could also share some of the traits of a Virgo as the sign of Virgo ends on the 22nd - 23rd September, depending on the year. In fact I believe that this can last up to 3-4 days after the sign has changed. So for instance if you were born at the very beginning of Libra you may feel that reading up about Virgo describes you very well, indeed many people who are born on the cusp find it a comfort to read up on both signs and feel that this gives them a greater insight into their character traits. This also works if you were born when one sign is coming to an end. So say you were born on the 20th or even the 18th or 19th you may feel that you have some of the watery traits of Cancer.
This can become altogether stronger when you have the same sign in your birth chart. If you are a Cancer but within your birth chart you find that there is a heavy Water sign influence it will mean that you just might be somewhat less chatty and more creative than a true Gemini. I’ve heard so many people try to tell me that astrology is tosh based on the ‘on the cusp’ scenario and then once explained they really don’t know what to say. So many people don’t believe or disagree with astrology because they do not fit their sun sign description which half the time they have read in the news paper, when really they are simply reading the wrong sign!
So if you are one of the many many people who just don’t feel they fit into their sign simply check out the sign before or after depending on when you’re born. I have listed the signs below. Please remember that these dates are approximate and can change depending on the year.
Aries: March 21st to April 19th
Taurus: April 20th to May 20th
Gemini: May 21st to June 20th
Cancer: June 21st to July 22nd
Leo: July 23rd to August 22nd
Virgo: August 23rd to September 22nd
Libra: September 23rd to October 22nd
Scorpio: October 23rd to November 21st
Sagittarius: November 22nd to December 21st
Capricorn: December 22nd to January 19th
Aquarius: January 20th to February 18th
Pisces: February 19th to March 20th

I have been away for a long, long time for various personal reasons. Although I have been keeping track of the comments, which are always so entertaining, interesting and insightful, this is just a quick note to let you all know I am back! I am also going to be offering birth charts etc. at a much reduced rate as, let’s face it, none of us have much money right now and I am not here to rob people, just to educate and help whilst being able to at least put a little something on the dinner table
I will be writing more posts soon, the first to be on the Cusp as this is an area I find particularly interesting. I will also be continuing the combined astrology posts which bring together Western and Chinese astrology which is a real eye opener.
There are also another 9 eBooks waiting to be written…so I have my work cut out. It would be great to get to know you all again so please feel free to drop me a line.
Love & Light
I know it’s only September but every year I get in undated with Birth Charts to make for people for Christmas and it becomes very difficult to complete them all on time as I have my own family Christmas to arrange. So this year I thought I would be organised (As organised as a Gemini can get!) and ask for anyone who wishes their chart to be done for themselves or a family member or friend for Christmas to get in touch ASAP. Any orders I receive from the 1st of December may not be completed until the Christmas madness is over.
If you are stuck for ideas for Christmas presents this year Birth Charts do make lovely unique gifts for friends and family. I write them personally myself with care, effort and thought to each individual and I NEVER write anything detrimental or upsetting, as I don’t believe that is what a Birth Chart is for, rather to discover our inner workings and help to understand why we do the things we do.
Compatibility Charts are also lovely if you have a couple you wish to buy a gift for but don’t know quite what to get for them. I NEVER write about how incompatible people are only how they can use their different personality traits to help one another, and explain how better to understand why your partner does the things he/she does. For many people this can be a really big realisation as we look deep into the relationship and how it works, which person brings what etc.
I have done compatibility charts for Sisters and Brothers, friends and co workers, so it’s not just about being a couple, any relationship in your life which you would like to take a closer look at.
Any questions please feel free to contact me via my contact page.
I have the pleasure of knowing two Pisces Rats both of which are female and both of which are lovely and extraordinary. Pisces rats are either extremely chatty or excruciatingly quiet in fact they can at times fill a room with their silence. Pisces Rats are very clever and very quick and can be experts at anything they choose.
Creativity is second nature to them in all forms from fine art to singing and dancing! Pisces Rats are always willing to help their friends and will always be there if they are needed but don’t ever let it be said that these people are push over’s they can be quite bossy when they want to be! One of their problems is that they tend to see the best in everyone and then are always incredibly shocked when things go wrong and people let them down. This is something that is often a hard lesson for them which can take a long time to learn as Pisces rats do tend to keep going back to the people who let them down with some belief that things will change.
As age forces us all to mature there will come a time when these people suddenly realise enough is enough and begin to toughen up a bit but while they are young and especially in their twenties these kind hearted people are targets for being taken for granted. Maybe the Pisces Rats most redeeming personality trait is the way they care for their friends and family. It doesn’t matter what time of day it is or how they themselves feel they will always be there for a needy friend or relative even just for a shoulder to cry on. Something I have noticed is that Pisces Rats always offer very wise advice, and this stems from their own experience and suffering. You never feel judged with a Pisces Rat only listened to and loved.
Pisces Rats do like to make the most of their appearance and really enjoy shopping for clothes. They are almost always responsible for choosing the wardrobes of everyone in their family! They mostly have liquid Pisces eyes that are dreamy but also very quick they miss nothing! That is unless they are engrossed with what they’re doing then there isn’t much hope of them noticing anything else. Partying is also a favourite pastime of the Pisces Rat, ‘why have a glass of wine when you can drink the entire bottle’ should and is often their motto. My very good friend is always ‘topping’ up my glass and it’s rare for me to leave her company sober!!
There is always a certain ’something; about these Rats that makes them stand out from others. They have quite a hard edge look to them but with softness that makes them rather charming. As they are Pisceans they are of course drawn to using their ‘gut feeling’ and instinct to work things out but whereas say a Pisces Goat would be completely reliant on this the Rat brings a great dollop of very bright intelligence which the Pisces can use well to help them back up their natural instincts.
Birth Charts For Christmas
The Refined Rabbit The Rabbit is Yin (female) Rabbit year’s are: 1903 ~ 1915 ~ 1927 ~ 1939 ~ 1951 ~ 1963 ~ 1975 ~ 1987 ~ 1999 ~ 2011 ~ 2023. This is a list of symbols that you, as a Rabbit, should surround yourself with as they will help you to become your true self and give you a feeling of happiness and comfort.
Tree - Poplar ~ Food - Fish ~ Flower - Rose ~ Fragrance- Shalimar ~ Birthstone- Sapphire ~ Number- 4 ~ Animal- Squirrel ~ Spice- Pepper ~ Herb- Tarragon ~ Drink- Bordeaux ~ Metal- Bronze ~ Colour- Grey.
Rabbit’s are full of sensitivity and refinement. They like the finer things in life and are rather interesting people to know. Although there tastes are somewhat chic, they are normally understated in their appearance as they prefer the classical to the flamboyant and don’t like being the center of attention. But, although the Rabbit’s clothes may look plain and conservative you can rest assured they are made of the finest and most sumptuous fabric money can buy.
The same applies to their cuisine. In-fact some people do tend to assume the Rabbit is rather snooty, they do have a tendency of when first meeting people to sly away into a corner somewhere, usually on a comfy seat. But, quite simply, they are shy of meeting new people especially if they are loud. The best way to get a Rabbit to notice you is to be modest and refined. People born in the year of the Rabbit hate conflict. Whether it is a World War or in a personal relationship they cannot handle bad vibes. You can scream at one of these creatures as much as you like, but the most common reaction is for the Bunny to hop away into the safety of his burrow, alone.
They don’t like their home to be a war zone. Rabbit’s are of the traditional way of thinking. Roast dinners on a Sunday, and occasions such as Christmas and birthday’s are big events and should be celebrated correctly. These people love their home, it is perhaps the most important place to them and they don’t like leaving it too much, even for holidays. If they do go on a holiday you will have to make sure it is somewhere equally homely for this person to be able to relax. Rabbit people are good at making money. They quietly succeed in their job not making a fuss but winning admiration nonetheless. If you are a friend of a Rabbit and you ever get in financial trouble the Rabbit will be sure to be the one to help you out. He will lend you however much you need and probably throw in some wise advice for you as well.
However, I did say "loan" you will have to pay the money back, he/she will not just forget they loaned it too you, it will probably be written down somewhere. Rabbits are incredibly squeamish. They hate the sight of blood, it doesn’t matter whose it is, if their own child cut’s themselves they will always try and find someone else to clean it up as they have a tendency for passing out at the sight of it. The also love reading and watching films, but they always make sure they are lovely, romantic and certainly not in anyway connected to the horror genre. So, I suppose if you are having trouble wooing one of these fearful bunnies you could always take them to see a horror film, that way they may have to jump into your lap and hide, just an idea!! Keeping a Rabbit healthy isn’t too much of an ordeal for although they always seem to have something wrong with them, they are willing to visit the Doctor. In fact it would be there idea.
A Rabbit person’s cupboard will be full of vitamins and minerals, anything that may help to improve their health. They certainly don’t let illness get the better of them and after some rest they will be back to work as right as rain.
Rabbit women do tend to suffer with gynecological problems and should go for regular check up’s with her doctor to make sure her hormones are in good order so as to keep away any metabolic, digestive and weight problems. As these can lead to her suffering with depression in later life.
Rabbits need peace and tranquility. Any stress will lead to them living a thoroughly miserable life that could lead to mental health issues. For these creatures are very sensitive both physically and mentally. What they need is a nice well run, quiet, loving home life, with a couple of well behaved children and well trained dog’s and perhaps a goldfish.
Rabbit’s are most compatible with: Goats, Pigs or Dogs. But do please stay away from Tigers, Roosters, Dragons and Horses, for they will upset your plan for a smoothly run life.
The 13th Sign
I have been inundated over the last few days with questions regarding this apparent new 13th sign. First of all I just want to clear up that this sign is not new, there has been talk of it for a very long time. Whether it is true and affects our signs as we know them I am not so sure about.
It is easy to get caught up in all the ‘hype’ regarding this, although I have to say in the UK it appears to have gone unnoticed. So many of you are worried that this changes everything, the core of who you are as a person. This got me wondering how many people are actually aware of their full birth chart as those of you who don’t ‘feel’ like the sign you were born under are welcoming the 13th sign with open arms, this however could be a mistake.
Pretty much all of what we read about regarding astrology whether it be from books, television or websites etc is all heavily based on one sign in our chart, and that of course is the Sun sign. And yes it is a very important sign, but by no means is it, can it or does it represent the fullness of what makes us who we are. To really see whats going on having your birth chart written up can be a real opener and answer many questions you may have had and bring up a whole load more that you didn’t!
If for instance you were born June 15th you would be a Gemini, but say you didn’t ‘feel’ like one, the descriptions you read about how you are supposedly meant to behave etc just don’t fit, it could be that your birth chart contains a heavy water, fire or earth element which would detract from your Sun sign and giving you characteristics you see in other signs, and in this case many of you are feeling like the 13 th sign explains all of that away.
For those of you who are worrying about this please get your chart drawn up it really may surprise you, and give you the peace of mind you have been looking for. And yes obviously it would be wonderful if you chose me to do this for you! That is after all my job, but I do take my time on charts as I really like to get to know the person through what I am doing and give them the best reading I can! But there are many other people and places where you can get a quick instant report, how accurate they are I do not know.
If you are interested her is the link to the Birth chart page:
I am currently very busy already working on charts and trying very hard to answer all your questions regarding the 13th Sign – Ophiuchus – Serpentarius – Imhotep or anything else you may like to call it. I will try and incorporate this into your charts but it’s quite tricky as it’s not something I’ve done before so please bear with me!!
Love & Light
