The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2013 to August 2014
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:
When a Quarter Moon occurs in your Return chart, as it does this year, you are at some sort of a turning point in your life, in terms of personal growth. Events that occur this year act as catalysts that get you in touch with some important issues in your emotional life. Your emotions run high, and mood swings or identity crises are possible. There may be some kind of conflict in your life arising from a great urge to do something different. The year ahead promises to be a busy, dynamic, and significant period in your life.
This year, you can feel that your spiritual and material goals harmonize or at least don’t get in each other’s way. Circumstances and your own attitudes facilitate following through on your dreams or turning your visions and ideals into reality. Combining imagination and effort is successful now. There can be a sense that your dreams are realizable, and you can build stronger faith and acceptance.
You have a strong capacity to dedicate yourself to things you hold dear this year, and particularly to a creative vision. Your ideas and plans are especially big and far-reaching right now.
Even so, you may be letting go of a project, situation, or endeavor during this period of your life, and there can be a temporary emptiness as you realign yourself.
Transiting Saturn square your Sun from January 2014 forward is a rather heavy and sober influence, but also one that is certain to straighten you out on some level. You’ll be working hard at disciplining yourself. As you face obstacles to your goals, you begin to see the tools with which you have to overcome them. A dose of realism may seem forced upon you from time to time during this period, but your efforts to measure up to expectations can ultimately increase your confidence in your ability to be responsible for yourself. You are likely to have new or increased responsibilities, and it might take some time to get adjusted to them. The need to re-structure and re-organize your life will be apparent. You may lose yourself in work and responsibilities and take yourself too seriously! As long as you work hard, but take time for relaxation and meditation as well, there is nothing to worry about. Most commonly, this influence suggests that a period of the year ahead may be felt to be physically draining and frustrating. When you begin to feel this influence, all you need to do is take a step back, avoid worrying about what others think of you, and simply apply yourself to your work and duties until it passes. Recognize that you may be challenging yourself by expecting too much. Your ego may be a little frail at this point, and, as a result, you may be harder on yourself than you should be. Much can be accomplished this year. Although you may not see immediate results for your efforts, important groundwork can be laid for the future.
With Mercury in challenging aspect to Saturn, some difficulties and delays with communications are likely. Your thoughts are likely to be quite sober at times, and you should do your best to avoid negative thinking.
Relationships with younger people in your life are rewarding. A subject or even a person can be especially inspiring, prompting you to explore new perspectives.
Venus is in creative aspect to Jupiter, suggesting a freer attitude towards expressing your affection. Your open heart is likely to attract easygoing friendships or love opportunities into your life.
Hard work and humility are the major keys to success this year, even if you don’t always know where you’re headed. While there can be sobering and possibly lonely periods at times, it’s a good time for straightening up or organizing important areas of your life. Life may seem to slow down a little, and you can catch your breath. Your social life should be rewarding and mostly pleasant.
2013 is a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice – let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.
2014 will be 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.
