The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2015 to August 2016
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:
The Moon is in its Balsamic phase in your Solar Return chart, marking this year the end of an important cycle, or stage of growth, in your life. You take more down time than usual, and this is natural, even good for you. This is a year when you are likely closing important projects or “chapters” in your life. This is an important year for reorienting yourself – discovering what you want, and identifying what you need to do in order to move forward more positively.
Uranus continues to transit trine to your Sun this year until April 2016. Your personality is sparkling during this period, which is sure to attract new circumstances and people into your life. Exciting (not jarring) changes and new interests characterize the period. It’s easier than ever to express your unique individuality, and if this involves changing careers or jobs, a new love affair, or an entirely new hobby, it’s something that takes you forward into unexplored territory. You are more willing to adapt to new circumstances, ideas, and unfamiliar situations this year. It’s a good time to join organizations and groups and to attend meetings or social events. You are able to find especially creative solutions to problems.
Mars harmonizes with Saturn around the time of your birthday this year, helping to ground you. Work is solid this year, and you can see results from your efforts, or at least foresee success down the road. This gives you a sense of responsibility and a feeling of directedness and purposefulness. Traditional methods work, and thoroughness brings rewards. Practice or refining a technique is favored this year.
However, because Mercury forms a tense aspect with Neptune in your Solar Return chart this year, err on the side of caution if offers arrive that seem too good to be true. Some confusion or possibly deception could arise in communications this year, and you may be skipping important details without even realizing it.
Venus conjuncts Jupiter and squares Saturn in your Solar Return chart this year, affecting either your finances or romantic relationships, or possibly both areas. In these areas, you may often find that you have to make a choice in which both alternatives are desirable, but you must choose one at the expense of the other. Venus with Jupiter suggests ease, indulgence, generosity, freedom, material comforts, and an expansive love nature. Saturn asks you to be responsible, hard working, dutiful, and serious. You need to assess areas of your life that have become dysfunctional and, in the process, you may need to sacrifice a material benefit for a spiritual good (or vice versa). The urge to expand and socialize is great, but circumstances may be such that you are unable to “play” as often as you’d like. Or, you may find that extravagances in your spending have a way of catching up with you, and buckling down is necessary this year. At times, there can be very pleasing circumstances surrounding your love life, finances, and creative pursuits. You might receive financial backing or special gifts.
There is good energy for one-on-one situations, partnering, and both supporting and gaining support from others this year.
There is much vibrancy to your personality this year, as you open up to new ideas and experiences. This can be a good period for furthering your education, polishing your skills, or taking on a new interest. There can be some ups and downs in social relationships until you discover a better balance between work and play. It’s a good year for getting organized and for making solid progress with important projects. It’s also possible you are closing up important projects or chapters in your life.
2015 is 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.
2016 will be a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is less active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract both things and people. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice – be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect.
