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 sometimes be pushy and manipulative 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. Your main challenge in life is to put the past behind you and 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 remarkably giving in love, and need to make sure you are met halfway, or you could become resentful. Loyalty in a mate is a critical quality for you.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:
You have a greater than usual desire for security and establishing roots this year. You might focus on acquiring things, especially for the home, and stabilizing your domestic environment. Steadiness is your objective. Building upon an idea or developing a special project or your talents can be in focus. You’re more persevering.
Transiting Saturn continues to transit opposite your Sun until January, calling upon you to identify the weaker areas of your life and to fix or strengthen them. Take the time to sort out details, improve your work, and become more efficient this month. Taking a slow and steady approach to life is necessary during this period. Pushing too hard will likely lead to frustration and setbacks. Take it easy and work on self-improvement. Results are not immediate, but will eventually come and bring healthy rewards. Relationships may be (or seem) more challenging than usual while Saturn opposes your Sun.
Fortunately, wonderfully creative ideas can fill your head this year. Your mind is open to new methods and styles that work well for you. This can be a good time for updating your electronics and technology in ways that open up new avenues for communication or ease.
At times, you can wrestle with your expectations or struggle between reliance on logic and putting your faith in something. Some confusion or even deception can be a theme in your communications this year, and it’s important to avoid glossing over important details. Watch also for scattering your energies over too many activities and projects.
Especially after January, pleasing circumstances surrounding your love life, finances, and creative pursuits are in store. You are especially generous, and others often return the favor. You might receive financial backing or special gifts in the period ahead. You seek a little more from your love life and you are likely to receive it. You might fall in love or enhance an existing relationship. You’re a little more open with your heart and ready to share your creativity.
In certain areas, you become more goal-oriented, as superficial goals no longer satisfy you. You want your objectives to reflect what you’re really about, and you are likely to rid yourself of unsatisfying projects or pursuits this year. In a pinch, you can readily pull up the extra energy, determination, or motivation to get where you want to go. Your ability to organize and strategize is top-notch.
It’s easier than usual to recognize opportunities because you’re looking to advance. As you connect with your hidden talents or desires, you might embrace new directions or pursuits.
Events occurring during this period can alter your path as they open your mind to new directions. Changes in the world or in shifts in societal thinking seem to impact your personal growth more than others, and as you adapt to these developments, you quickly find ways to benefit from them or grow through them. You could be part of the change itself, inspiring others with new ways to view the world around you.
You’re filled with exciting ideas, and your personal interests are in strong focus this year. This period of your life is powerful for growing and improving–even upgrading your life. You’re personally popular and ready to try new things. Some issues with delays and off timing are possible. However, you’re making strong connections.
2022 is 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 pay special attention to 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 often not formed in a Four personal year. However, it can be a wonderful year for building, developing, and laying a solid foundation for future successes. Advice - get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
2023 will be a Number Five year for you. Ruled by Mercury. This is a year of discovery and freedom. It's a time when exploration and reaching out to others brings opportunities. It's a good time to advertise, promote, and sell. Surprises are in store, and the routine is broken for the better. This is a year when exciting relationships can be formed; or, if you are already in a partnership, you're breathing new life into the relationship. Advice - explore, look for adventure, keep your eyes open for opportunities, diversify, mingle.
