The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2019 to August 2020
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:
Your birthday falls shortly after a Full Moon this year, suggesting a period ahead of communication and teaching. You may be turned to for advice more frequently, and you are very willing to offer your help. This is a strong year for publicity and any other endeavors that involve spreading the word. As well, your ability to be objective–or to see the “big picture”–can be especially pronounced and rewarding this year.
You are determined to meet or exceed your goals in the year ahead. It’s easier to recognize and focus on your priorities. You benefit from being more decisive than usual. A new project or goal begun this year has a good chance of being successful and long-lasting. Your activities tend to be more intense, passionate, and focused. It’s an excellent year in which to make a lifestyle change.
It’s also a good year for group connections or new ideas, beliefs, and dreams. There can be more compassion in your relationships, as well as a real chance of being with–or meeting–someone with whom you connect on a soul level.
You’re imaginative, creative, and communicate warmly and considerately. This is a powerful period for both teaching and learning. Nurturing a special interest or pouring more love into a project can figure strongly. Researching cooking, health, and nutrition can be fruitful now. It’s also a strong time for promotion, publishing, and marketing.
Even so, your mind is working at top speed this year. This means you can get a whole lot done, but it also suggests that you may not be paying attention to important details. Your senses are stimulated, and you could have sudden flashes of insight or fresh new ideas. You could find it challenging to deal with routine matters or monotonous tasks. Learning new things is your passion this year–not recycling old ideas or performing repetitive processes.
You are especially creative and expressive this year, and you might often act on impulse. Your love life may be especially animated. You succeed best in fields or areas that allow you to make something beautiful, attractive, and/or entertaining. You are particularly dynamic at this point in your life, sometimes impatient, and you often experience bursts of energy. You are courageous, but be careful to not go to such extremes that you are foolhardy, as this inclines you to mishaps.
This period in your life is likely to be sensitive, sociable, and mostly pleasant. Friendships can figure strongly. You’re making personal improvements and your interest in comfort and pleasure increases. Others are taking a special interest in you. You’re more compromising and agreeable or cooperative, yet also assertive.
You may find it easier to express your desires with people in your life this year. You may want to be active with a partner or you team up to get things done. Your powers of negotiation are particularly brilliant. However, you do well independently as well, and in fact, you may feel stronger, more personally powerful, and effective than usual this year. You can do particularly well in a position of management or simply taking the reins and handling life quite expertly.
There can be someone in your life this year who changes your perspective or encourages your more artistic, imaginative, or spiritual side. Your intuition is powerful this year.
Relationships are in strong focus, and you can find yourself in demand this year! Helpful boosts are in the cards. You have both inspiration and determination on your side in the period ahead. The year is likely to be more sociable than usual, and helpful people can figure strongly. Work or special projects can be exciting and rewarding, and your social life is likely to open up pleasingly.
2019 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.

Advice - Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.
2020 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.
