Look up to the skies and see ....  


23rd September – 22nd October



The Australian Lizard is found in the sky using the same stars as the constellation of Bootes, which is one of the 48 constellations listed by Ptolemy and is now one of the 88 modern constellations. Arcturus, the third brightest star in the night sky, belongs to Bootes.


Like their animal totem of Lizard, people born to this sign spend a lot of time patiently evaluating situations and people but when they make up their minds, they can move swiftly. The problem lies in making a decision, because they can spend a lot of time evaluating their options. They can become their own worst enemy by continually weighing up facts before moving.


Most Australian lizards share a great survival skill: they can shed their tail and regrow all or part of it. So when a predator grabs a lizard, the tail comes off to distract the predator and give the lizard time to escape. The first knowledge shared by lizard is detachment, and people born in the time of Lizard can give an impression of aloofness as they consider their options.

However, they are also reliable, faithful, personally attractive and very in touch with nature. They are trusted and respected people, diplomatic but not easily imposed upon or deceived. Like their animal totem, these people are very strong physically and can withstand great strain.
