The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2017 to August 2018
If You Were Born Today, August 12:
You have a wonderful sense of humor. A “doer”, you tend to always keep yourself busy. You are one of the most resourceful people around, as you are often assessing usefulness and value of the things around you. You love to play, throughout life, and seem to be looking for ways to entertain yourself at every turn. Even so, you are a hard worker. You are a true pioneer in whatever you do, although you also do your best when you feel secure. As such, although you are a self-starter, the risks you take in life tend to be calculated ones. A true individualist, you also have very high ideals. You have a good sense for opportunities. In love, you are quite brave emotionally. Your emotions tend to be quite up and down, however, when it comes to matters of the heart, and you can surprise partners with great warmth and interest one day, and cool detachment the next. Famous people born today: Pete Sampras, Casey Affleck, Cecil B. De Mille, Mark Knopfler, Pat Metheny, Maggie Lawson, George Soros, Peter Krause, Rebecca Gayheart.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
With the Sun and Moon in harmony in your Solar Return chart, the year ahead should be satisfying and balanced overall. You are in comfortable demand and personally popular, and you are able to achieve a decent balance between work and play; personal and professional life. For the most part, you are on top of your game this year, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there is less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!
You’re in great shape socially and creatively as well this year. There is a distinct charm in the way you present your ideas this year, certainly helping to smooth over differences in your personal relationships. It’s a good year for cultural events, writing, and pleasure trips.
You are imaginative, creative, and communicate warmly and considerately. This is a favorable period for both teaching and learning, and for expressing feelings. Researching cooking, health, and nutrition can be fruitful now. It’s also a strong time for marketing, promotion, and building a thriving business with thoughtful and creative details. There is a good balance between learning from tradition and seeing things progressively at this time. Your timing is generally good, and you tend to make strong decisions related to work or long-term projects.
Even so, you are bolder, more assertive, and energetic during this period in your life. You are especially interested in setting goals and challenges for yourself this year and taking the necessary action to meet them. You may meet or interact with others who encourage or inspire you in some way to have more confidence in yourself. Your energy levels are generally strong, and your sense of timing better than usual. Independent work is favored and competitive activities may also thrive this year, although you may need to tone things down at times and learn more patience. Your passions and enthusiasm run high, and the trick is to channel this extra energy constructively.
There can be a stronger tendency toward, or desire for, commitment and deep involvement in your relationships in the period ahead. You are taking love or friendship connections seriously! There can be a willingness to make sacrifices if it seems the best way to make improvements in relationships and with money matters. You can be quite particular in your tastes, and good with money and savings.
There can be a strong focus on nurturing and supporting people in your life this year. You are more imaginative and attuned to the world of beauty and romance in the year ahead. Gentleness with others is the best way to harness this energy and to attract what you want into your life. There could be truly “magical” times on a romantic and social level. You are especially romantic this year, and you are likely to idealize and expand a relationship through sensitive interactions and a more giving approach. Benefits come through paying attention to your dreams and intuitions, as well as through creativity.
However, at times this year, there can be some intensity in your love or social life this year, as you want to grow and develop in these areas of life. You should watch for impatience or too-high expectations in this regard. Your love nature is strong although given to extremes at times. You may overvalue something (or someone). Extravagances are possible.
This is a year of special attention to relationships, but you’re also highly active, motivated, and productive in the year ahead. Creativity thrives, and you’re likely to meet wonderful people or enhance existing relationships with more warmth. Some relationships can be loaded and have their ups and downs. This can be a particularly active and assertive period in your life, but also a time of compromise and successful negotiation, as well as rewarding projects and conversations. Competitiveness can lead to good things but watch for taking this to the point that you’re energetically drained.
2017 is a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time when you find it natural and easy to enjoy life and other people. The focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure than you are in other years. It's likely to be a rather lighthearted year when opportunities for "play" time are greater than usual. It's also a favorable year for expressing your creativity. Advice - reach out and connect but avoid scattering your energies.
2018 will be 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 pay special attention to 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. Positive new relationships are often not formed in a Four personal year. However, it can be a wonderful year for building, development, and laying a solid foundation for future successes. Advice - get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
