April 5 Birthday Horoscope 2016-2017
If Today is Your Birthday: April 5
The Year Ahead
Forecast for April 2016 to April 2017
If You Were Born Today, April 5:
Multi-talented and artistic, you are wonderfully expressive, direct, and straightforward. You have little patience for people beating around the bush, as this is not part of your own nature. While you do say it like it is, and you can be surprisingly blunt, you might frequently change your convictions and goals when you are inspired and enthused about something new. Discontent with the status quo can lead you to seek unconventional and exciting adventures. Famous people born today: Spencer Tracy, Bette Davis, Colin Powell, Gregory Peck.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
Transiting Saturn harmonizes with your Sun this year, and this can be a steadying, helpful influence. You are practical in your choices (for the most part), keeping your feet on the ground and paying attention to, and honoring, tradition as well as tried-and-true methods. You have the power of practicality, realism, and caution on your side in the year ahead. Work you have done in the past begins to pay off this year–not necessarily in dramatic ways, but in small, measurable ways. You may be recognized or rewarded in some way for the efforts you put forth. Because you project a more responsible and credible “you”, people in authority are more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work.
This is a year in which you put your life into order in some significant manner. Improved concentration, a more realistic outlook, and a practical awareness of the limits of time all help you to make steady progress, particularly in your career. Your concern for your future this year is stronger than usual, and you may find that projects you start, or investments you make, this year will benefit you for years to come. The key to success this year is adopting a realistic, practical, disciplined, and orderly approach to your life.
Pluto continues to transit square your Sun this year, however. You are refining and reshaping your personality and your life path. Some obsessive behavior is possible – perhaps you are trying to cling to a behavior that suited you in the past, but that has now outgrown its purpose or is in need of an overhaul. Your emotions tend to be turbulent. You are likely to experience events that highlight the necessity to share and trust. Events and circumstances are such that you learn about your own personal strength. You may have to deal with wilfulness and issues of power and competition – in others and in yourself – and learning a lot about your fears, desires, and goals in the process.
This is a good time for motivation levels regarding work or projects and personal interests. There can be opportunities to pursue absorbing topics and projects of interest. More joy and meaning can be found in your work or obligations.
However, you need to be aware of a tendency to be attracted to impractical ventures at times this year. As well, your energy can vary greatly from one period to the next, so take advantage of the “high” periods in order to offset the possible loss in productivity during the low-energy stages.
Relationships can be especially focused on nurture and support. There can be a stronger inclination towards togetherness and sharing; forgiveness and compassion.
This is a strong year for getting your life on track through improved work and attention to practical details and increased self-discipline overall, although there will be times when you battle with varying energy levels. Strong plans and lifestyle changes can be made at this time in your life.
2016 is a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice – let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.
2017 will be a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.
