Strong, energetic, optimistic and powerful. Forthright, frank and honest, you can be prone to grandiosity and impatience, but your lively sense of humour and sensitive insightfulness always save the day.

You carry both the joy and responsibility of the awakening spirit of the Thunder Star. In I Ching Astrology, your symbolism has you marked as “the eldest son.” You have enormous energy and creativity. Yours is the soul of the pioneer. You are a groundbreaker. And every family needs one, although they might not always be quite so sure, as you will rarely heed anyone’s advice, You simply go for it and sort out the consequences later!

Your resilience and impulsive drive for independence can land you in hot water particularly early on in life.

And the advice to look before you leap, think before you decide and plan before you set out might not be that welcome. But I’m giving it to you anyway. To look at it another way, if in doubt always bounce your ideas off a close friend – but better not make that another 3 Thunder Star!

As a trailblazer you always bring joy to the party – people are drawn to you as much for your energy and wit as for your prescience. With vision comes the burden of delivery, and this can be your Achilles heel – delivering on the promises you make to yourself and to others. Your archetype of the first-born does, though, equip you with the bravado and surefootedness to manoeuvre successfully to the end of most of your goals. Should things not pan out quite as expected, you will simply shrug off any setback, dust yourself down and start again!

Which of the other Stars will rock you boat? The 6 Heaven and 7 Lake Stars will keep you in check and you might well find comfort within these boundaries, as they will ground you usefully.

By your very nature, you will light a fire under the slower earth-dominated 2, 5 and 8 stars.

In Chinese medicine, as a 3 Thunder Star, your wood element is associated with the liver. In practical terms, this means avoiding eating or drinking late at night; and get to bed early too, if you can. On waking, try a little gentle exercise before breakfast. The liver always appreciates a rest: a period of mild fasting will boost your energy – so try skipping at least one meal a week, but not breakfast.
