The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2017 to August 2018
If You Were Born Today, August 17:
You are a bit of a maverick. Although sensitive, you are not afraid to do your own thing! Personal magnetism and appeal are strong, although you can be quite pushy and manipulative at times when you want your way. You have good people skills when you need them, however, and you are adept at combining business and pleasure. It’s just that you are very charming and might get used to having things go your way as a result. Your main challenge in life is to put the past behind you and to avoid letting worries and fear rule your life. You are highly intuitive and imaginative. Very amorous, you live for the excitement of romance. You are very giving in love, and need to make sure you are met halfway or you could become resentful. Loyalty in a mate is an especially important quality for you. Famous people born today: Davy Crockett, Robert De Niro, Mae West, Sean Penn, Taissa Farmiga.
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 harmonizes with your Sun until February 2018. 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 can find especially creative solutions to problems.
You are likely to feel very inspired to improve and do your best in the period ahead. You may assume a leadership role and establish connections and/or relationships with people that help forward your own personal growth. Teamwork and camaraderie, as well as meaningful connections, are themes. You feel your life has a definite purpose this year. You are encouraged to grow through your connections with others.
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 significant 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, 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.
As well, it’s important to double-check your communications this year, as you can be a little careless or too quick with them, and there is some tendency to drift apart from certain friends as you can be quite wrapped up in your affairs.
Travel opportunities are likely. Pinnacle successes can occur during this period – for example, publishing an important project, graduating, marrying, having a child, getting a promotion, and so forth. Matters related to universities, higher education, religion, publishing, legal affairs, and foreign interests tend to fare well.
You are likely to enjoy professional as well as personal opportunities. Your faith in your ability to produce and to win takes you places you perhaps never imagined. You are able to see the “big picture”, which helps you to plan effectively. You might enjoy significant wins and positive outcomes in competitive activities, including sports and business, for example.
Cooperation more than competition leads to benefits this year. This is a period of special attention to relationships, but you’re also highly active, motivated, and enterprising in the year ahead. Creativity thrives. Some relationships can be loaded and have their ups and downs, while others prosper. This can be a particularly active period in your life, but you also take the time to enjoy quiet activities rewarding personal projects. Competitiveness can lead to good things but watch for taking this to the point that you’re energetically drained.
2017 is a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It's generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice - take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.
2018 will be 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.
