The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2020 to August 2021
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, Taissa Farmiga.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
This can be a year in which you are a bit bolder, more assertive, and energetic. You are especially interested in setting goals and challenges for yourself, and you’re taking the necessary action to meet them. You may meet or interact with others who encourage or inspire you in some way to have more confidence in yourself. Independent work is favored and competitive activities may also thrive this year.
Still, 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 might close an important project or “chapter” 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.
This can be an especially busy year of your life! At times, you may feel like the pace of your life is running ahead of you. You can be especially productive, however, in all types of communications–writing, speaking, learning, teaching, and so forth–as long as you focus on a few important projects and pursuits rather than scatter your energies around.
There can be increased opportunities for friendship and love this year. Pleasurable activities are in focus. There can be some temptation to overspend or overdo, but also some very enjoyable moments.
You’re in excellent shape to see relating patterns and use them positively to encourage creativity and excitement. You’re creative, competitive, and smart about how to get ahead.
Relationships get a boost. You’re likely to feel pleasantly attached, finding it natural and easy to nurture and support people in your life. You’re strongly motivated to bring harmony, balance, and peace into your environment and relationships during this period.
At the same time, you are likely to 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 definite purpose this year. Through your contacts, you are encouraged to grow. You may assume a leadership role.
This can also be a year for improved mental connectedness or more energetic attention to communicating and sharing ideas. You’re putting your ideas out there more confidently, and you’re more inclined to put your ideas into action than usual.
This is a strong period 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.
With a Mars-Pluto challenge, you could move mountains when it comes to pushing your projects ahead if your channel this determined energy well. If mishandled, however, you could be argumentative or stressed. It may be best to avoid taking extreme measures to make things happen your way, and avoid people who might be doing same. Deliberately trying to maneuver things in order to get the upper hand will be a lesson in frustration. It may not be worth it in the end.
You’re likely to experience a stronger desire to seek meaning, wisdom, and mental stimulation in your life during this period. Others might frequently turn to you for guidance.
You’re especially creative and energy levels increase in the period ahead, although they can also be up and down. You can experience stop-and-go energy, and it’s best to take advantage of the periods when you’re feeling especially enterprising and confident. You’re growing through your connections and a key partnership, and you’re finding ways to heal and improve. Your creative impulses are powerful, and your goals are evolving.
2020 is 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 generally not as 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 what--and who--you want into your life now. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice - be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect, develop, build, and attract.
2021 will be a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time when you find it natural and easy to enjoy life and other people. The focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure than you are in other years. It's likely to be a rather lighthearted year when opportunities for "play" time are greater than usual. It's also a favorable year for expressing your creativity. Advice - reach out and connect but avoid scattering your energies.
