The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2023 to August 2024
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:
Your birthday this year occurs shortly after a New Moon, suggesting a time of new beginnings and fresh energy. You are instinctively starting a new phase in your life. It’s time to give your life a makeover and to branch out into the untried.
This can be a year in which you experience important turning points, or you could begin new projects or goals that have a long-term impact on your life.
You’re also speaking up more often. This can be a time of 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.
You’re likely to have many projects and ideas going on at this time in your life–you’re hungry for variety, knowledge, and mental excitement. You have a pleasing way with words, whether spoken or written (or both), and a love for order in the world of ideas and problem-solving.
Bursts of creativity and energy emerge at seemingly perfect times, and help you to further your goals. Healthy risk-taking is likely this year, as you are more able to spot an opportunity when you see one. It is easier than usual to break free from habits that have previously held you back from going after what you want in life.
Your optimism can help you to attract positive circumstances into your life. You are especially enthusiastic about your ideas, and expressing yourself verbally and in written form comes easily. Public relations and negotiations tend to run especially smoothly. This is a time for thinking about what is really important to you in the long run.
This can be a time when some relationships go through healing. Ups and downs may lead to new commitments. You’ll have a chance to heal old wounds with regards to love this year. You’re also bound to find new ways of making money.
This can be a good time to get work done with or for loved ones as well as with home and hearth. It’s also a strong period for the motivation to grow and improve a business or long-term project.
Keep an eye out for a tendency to gravitate to impractical ventures. You may experience passive-aggressiveness in others, which impacts your life in frustrating ways, or you could find relationships with others confusing and hard to define in spots. Although you may enjoy an increase in your intuitive capabilities, you could also be too open to influence. With varying energy levels, aim to take advantage of the high periods to offset the possible loss in productivity during the low-energy stages. This could also be a year in which you are considerably more creative.
With Uranus transiting square your Sun from May 2024 forward, you crave and seek more freedom, and how you deal with this issue makes all the difference as to the overriding themes of this period of your life. If you recognize your need for changes in key areas of your life and adapt accordingly, this can be an exciting year of discovery. However, if you resist change and insist on keeping things status quo, you are bound to feel very restless, tense, and rebellious. Either way, making healthy changes should be the focus instead of change just for the sake of change. Spontaneity, not impulsiveness, is the key to success this year. Fortunately, you have a lot of cosmic support for this.
Fortunately, from June 2024 forward, Chiron transits in harmony with your Sun, and it’s an important time for healing, both emotionally and physically. Your more unique qualities stand out most pleasantly. You have the chance to improve your relationships with others–and with yourself! A humbly confident approach to life earns you respect. Teaching others may be part of the picture, informally or formally.
You can feel as if you’re beginning a new chapter in your life, and the year ahead holds good energy for new opportunities. You’re optimistic and ready to take on a challenge. Despite some ups and downs socially, your social life is colorful and dynamic. You’re making significant connections this year.
