If You Were Born Today, August 11: Famous people born today: Alex Haley, Hulk Hogan, Jerry Falwell.
Your Birthday Year Forecast: Your birthday this year occurs shortly after a New Moon, suggesting a time of new beginnings and fresh energy. You are instinctively starting a new phase in your life. It’s time to give your life a makeover and to branch out into the untried.
Venus conjunct Mars in your Solar Return chart this year points to creative energy, romantic excitement, and playful competitiveness in relationships. Romance is in the air, as this aspect increases your sensuality, sex appeal, and animal magnetism. A new or enhanced relationship is possible. Now is also a good time to engage in creative projects and to join with others in pursuing a common goal. Competitive activities are favored.
However, taking love seriously this year is very likely. Some of you will be taking a more casual relationship to the next level; others will be examining existing ties more closely. Pushing too hard for a commitment, however, might only lead to resistance and even rebellion. Balance in your love relationships is what you strive for this year. You are more sensitive to imbalances in your relating patterns, and this can lead to some feelings of unrest and dissatisfaction. What’s fair in your social interactions is what you are most concerned with. You want to grow rather than stagnate, and communication and stimulation are very important to you. Strong romantic passions are stimulated now, and the urge to be with your love partner is intense. Genuineness, commitment, and faithfulness are extremely important qualities that you are seeking in a partner this year. When it comes to love, you can sometimes struggle between sticking with familiar habit patterns and feeling like you need more. There can be some see-sawing as you try to find a balance for your needs for both stability and excitement. While there is a strong urge for security and familiarity in love, there can be some disruptions to these patterns. As well, intensity of feelings are prominent, and you could be dealing with fears, in yourself or in a partner, that can manifest as possessiveness or manipulative behavior, which should be watched for.
As well, examining relationships in terms of your personal growth is a theme this year. You may be questioning whether or not your love and social relationships are holding you back from developing.
Some of you will be cementing a creative hobby — turning it into a small business, for example, or taking it more seriously.
You have an especially strong urge to get on track financially, to buckle down, to budget, and to save. However, there can be times when whim overcomes you, or there can be disruptions that throw you off course temporarily. There may also be a large purchase that requires you to alter your budget.
In May 2011, you benefit from transiting Jupiter trine to your Sun, and this is a time to find ways to improve your life and your satisfaction from life. Resolving conflicts with others is favored, as you come across in a more favorable light than usual. Jupiter is giving your ego a boost, and it’s likely a much-needed boost. New visions of the future and new inspirations are likely to come along with this transit. You are likely to feel very good and confident during this period.
Saturn in opposition to Uranus around the time of your birthday suggests some restlessness. Attempts to assert your individuality, freedom, and originality undermine your feelings of groundedness and security. Yet, you are not satisfied when you conform. There may be sudden and unexpected twists that force you to do something different or that help free yourself from old habits. Adjusting your plans is in order, and striking a balance between convention and innovation is the challenge. Setbacks tend to be temporary and often lead to new, more creative paths or solutions. Ambivalence is likely and could color many of your interactions.
Jupiter joined with Uranus is also found in your Solar Return chart, and this suggests the need for progressive change in your life. You might take risks (perhaps, but not necessarily, foolish ones) for the sake of freedom. You are open to new energies, approaches, and attitudes. Fortunate events occur as a direct result of your willingness to entertain the unusual and to think outside of the box. Enthusiasm runs high, the desire for freedom from restrictions is strong, and thirst for adventure is with you.
You are finding new ways of expressing and asserting yourself this year. A change in attitude and new projects are likely. Love relationships are in focus as you attempt to bring balance and equality into this area of your life. Holding on too tightly, however, can lead to resistance.
2010 is a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to deal with practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
2011 will be a Number Five year for you. Ruled by Mercury. This is a year of exploration and freedom. It’s a time when exploration and reaching out to others brings opportunities. It’s a good time to advertise and sell. Surprises are in store, and the routine is broken. This is a year when exciting relationships can be formed, or, if you are already in a partnership, new life is breathed into the relationship. Advice – explore, look for adventure, keep your eyes open for opportunities, mingle.
