The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2016 to August 2017
If You Were Born Today, August 13:
There is a regal, masterful aura about you. You are very intelligent, creative, and clever. Very passionate, you are a natural leader – people turn to you for answers – but you are also a fair and gracious person, not a domineering person. You are proud of your intellect. You live by your own truth, and you are very responsible. In fact, you thrive most when you are meeting your responsibilities. As strong as you are, you feel very helpless without a partner, and you are at your best when you maintain a healthy and strong partnership. There is also a somewhat reclusive part of you. You are not always explicit in expressing your affections. However, if a partner considers your actions instead of your words, he/she will value your loyalty, family values, and self-sacrifice. Famous people born today: Alfred Hitchcock, Dan Fogelberg, Kathleen Battle, John Slattery, Sebastian Stan, Bobby Clarke, Debi Mazar.
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!
Transiting Uranus continues to harmonize with your Sun this year until February 2017. 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.
However, this year, Saturn also harmonizes with your Sun, starting in December 2016, and this helps you to bring a balance of tradition and progress into your life. Saturn’s transit suggests benefits from keeping your feet on the ground and paying attention to, and honoring, tradition as well as tried-and-true methods. Work you have done in the past begins to pay off now – 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. When you project a more responsible and credible “you”, people in authority are more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work. This is a time in which you put your life in order in some significant manner. The key to success under this influence is adopting a realistic, practical, disciplined, and orderly approach to your life. Having a strong sense for both tradition and innovation opens doors for you. You have a real sense of tomorrow now, so it’s easier for you to take the necessary steps to make all of your “tomorrows” better.
As well, Jupiter moves into transiting harmony with your Sun from December 2016 forward. 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 can 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 favorable. It’s a good time to further your education. You are likely to enjoy a larger perspective on matters that keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses.
With Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus supporting your Sun, this is an excellent period for business and lifestyle balance.
Your powers of investigation are strong – you go to the origin of a problem and work from there. There may be a project, idea, or person that demands much of your attention or occupies much of your thoughts. You are especially resourceful when your curiosity is piqued.
There can be some wrestling with expectations in relationships this year. Feelings can sometimes run hot and cold in love. Venus in challenging aspect to Neptune and Saturn can affect finances or romantic relationships, and possibly both areas. Uncertainty in either of these areas is the theme, but this does not necessarily point to financial or romantic losses, by all means. It might point to, for example, a variable income that goes with the territory of self-employment, or a relationship that isn’t quite as settled as you’d like it to be for the time being. Saturn asks you to be responsible, hard working, dutiful, and serious when it comes to finances and/or romantic relationships. Neptune, on the other hand, places a veil over your eyes and seduces you into believing what you want to believe rather than what really is. 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 one (or vice versa). You are learning to put your priorities into better perspective. Venus is also moving towards a conjunction with the Moon’s North Node, suggesting that you are likely to attract growth-oriented relationships into your life. Your powers of negotiation are very strong, and this aspect points to some form of resolution to the matters mentioned above.
You may win respect and recognition for your work or craft this year. There is a good balance between learning from tradition and seeing things progressively.
You are better able to come to a good balance in attitude this year, and many life departments can benefit, although some relationships can be up and down and extra attention should be paid to financial matters. You’re in an exceptionally strong position for taking advantage of new opportunities while keeping your feet on the ground. There can be recognition for your work or talents.
2016 is a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time when it is easy to enjoy life and other people. Focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure. It is likely to be a rather lighthearted year when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a good year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out, but avoid scattering your energies.
2017 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 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. Positive new relationships are generally not formed in a Four personal year. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
