The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2018 to August 2019
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:
A Solar Eclipse occurring around the time of your birthday suggests the year ahead is a pivotal one. You are instinctively beginning a new phase of your life this year. A decisively new direction has come about, and it’s an emotionally stimulating time in which you feel the urge to initiate and project, even if you are not quite clear about what you are projecting. You may gain more attention than usual. Much of the energy in your life can have a magical quality to it as things are just automatically going in a certain direction. It is important to be intuitive at this time and allow the natural course to show you the way to the next step. Surprises (mostly very pleasant) pepper your year. New beginnings are in order, and you are bound to feel some level of excitement as the year unfolds.
This can be a year in which you experience important turning points, or you could begin new projects or goals that have a long-term impact on your life.
You can have many projects and ideas going on this year. You’re hungry for variety, knowledge, and mental excitement. You could have a pleasing way with words, whether spoken or written (or both) and a love for order in the world of ideas and problem-solving. The year ahead is likely to be especially busy. At times, you may feel like the pace of your life is running ahead of you! You can be especially productive, however, in all types of communications–writing, speaking, learning, teaching, and so forth. There can be a stronger focus on past performance.
You have Jupiter transiting in harmony to your Sun from February 2019 forward. Under this influence, you have a stronger than usual desire to improve, grow, and learn. This is a fortunate aspect that helps boost optimism and confidence, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve. Matters related to universities, higher education, organized religion, publishing, legal affairs, and foreign interests can be especially strong. It’s a favorable time to further your education, travel, or otherwise expand your personal horizons. You are likely to enjoy a larger perspective on matters that keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses.
You are very likely to attract loving relationships and/or new warm social contacts into your life. Your popularity increases and efforts to smooth over challenges in partnerships are more likely to succeed. This is an excellent influence for negotiations, marriage, and business partnership.
This can be a year in which you are building faith and confidence in your personality, skills, and talents. You can experience a stronger desire to seek out meaning, wisdom, and mental stimulation in your life during this period. Others might frequently turn to you for guidance. In fact, they may see the wisdom in your ways more clearly.
You are especially creative and expressive during this period, and you succeed most in fields or areas that allow you to make something beautiful, attractive, and/or entertaining. Personal magnetism is excellent at this time. This is a good period for creative projects and joining with others in the pursuit of a common goal.
Energy fluctuates this year, however. If you aren’t too rash or impulsive, you might be able to free yourself from restrictive circumstances. You could also have more courage than usual to do things that break the routine, and confrontations engaged in this year could clear the air and help you to move forward.
As well, getting serious about love or money (or both) can be a theme this year. Money may be tight, or the need to buckle down with your finances may be necessary. You may have an increased awareness of your limits. The responsibilities of partnership are magnified this year. You are likely to be more earnest on a romantic level. An existing relationship may become more serious, or you may form a new partnership with a serious or older person.
You might also watch for a tendency to overstate and to neglect important details when making plans. You may have so very many ideas that you end up implementing none if you’re not careful! You are likely to have increased opportunities for travel and/or new learning experiences.
Idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses surface this year. Making connections with others from different backgrounds may figure strongly. Widening your mind through unusual or different experiences can be part of the picture. You more easily make personal sacrifices for what you believe to be the greater good this year.
You can feel as if you’re turning over a new leaf or beginning a new chapter in your life this year. It may be early to see just how pivotal the year is, but it’s a time of important launches or directions. Your creativity is stimulated in addition to your excitability and your need for freedom. It is easier than ever to express your individuality in a manner that is true to you. In certain areas of your life, you’re inclined to rock the boat this year so that you can break free from a limiting situation. Be mindful when/if making sweeping changes. Personal magnetism is strong, although there can be some feelings of restriction in a key relationship or with money matters at times.
