Zodiac #AtoZchallenge

I’ve been thinking of characters.  How I describe them, what I use to work out what they’re like and what their traits are.  One thing I don’t use, yet, is signs of the zodiac, probably because I don’t know enough about them.  For my last post in the challenge I wanted to try something different.  Here’s some horoscope notes for the zodiac signs using a tarot reading, not conventional I know but it’s all I can muster until I learn to read the stars.

Disclaimer: this is only for fun, I am not a professional Astrologist or Tarot reader.

21 April – 21 May Taurus:  Work features high and you put a lot of energy into learning your trade and passing it on, providing you with prosperity which you generously share.  You are going through a period of life changes, transformation is possible if questions are asked and decisions made.

22 May – 21 June Gemini:  Beauty abounds, it is a fertile time for nurturing and spiritual awareness is heightened.  You are busy and active, possibly involving a change in location.

22 June – 22 July Cancer:  Incredibly skilled and knowledgeable, you support others lovingly yet something’s been blocking you.  Facing your fears, you’re using your skills to get past this.

23 July – 23 August Leo:  You’ve been through a tough phase, you’re breaking free and overcoming gossip.  Now is the time for a significant life event.

24 August – 22 September Virgo:  You are happy spending much time alone in your garden.  You have a critical decision to make which can change your life’s path, have you given up too soon?

23 September – 23 October Libra:  Major changes are influencing you.  You let go of old ways and embrace the love in your life though there may be legal issues to be dealt with.

24 October – 22 November Scorpio:  Unexpected problems have you juggling your way through life.  The way ahead looks steadier with a new project going well.

23 November – 21 December Sagittarius:  Are you avoiding your own needs?  This may be blocking your inspiration.  You’re about to make a decision which will catapult you into a new life.

22 December – 20 January Capricorn: Your home is full of love and contentment.  Is someone being too self-possessed whilst another is providing all the security and home comforts?

21 January – 18 February Aquarius:  Are you following your own path to your detriment?  Have things taken a turn for the worse?  As a new opportunity appears you can follow a better path.

19 February – 20 March Pisces:  Time with childhood friends leads to nostalgic memories.  As you start a new project keep a balance in your life.

21 March – 20 April Aries:  Stand up for all the hard work you’ve put in and try to avoid conflict with others.  Love is overflowing around you right now.


That was fun to do and I might use it for one of my characters.  What do you use to help you with characterisation?  What sign of the zodiac are you and do you work out what your characters zodiac signs are?

My AtoZchallenge posts have mainly been about insecurities around my attempts to write and edit novels.  The current novels in edit are ‘Bags’, ‘Holiday stories’ and ‘Dream Gardener’ with many more desperate to emerge and take their chances in life.

You have encouraged me not to worry about genre, my writing style or anything else.  Many thanks, your comments have provided humour, warmth and comfort, I hope you have received something in return.

This blog might go a bit quiet now.. Much love, Lynne xx
