The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2013 to August 2014
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, Mark Salling.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
A trine between the Sun and the Moon in your Solar Return chart this year is a fortunate aspect. It suggests that your domestic and career needs are not in competition with one another in the year ahead. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa. This aspect is very powerful and rewarding. It suggests that you will be on top of your game this year, for the most part, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. A comfortable level of personal popularity helps to keep conflict to a minimum. 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!
This year, you can feel that your spiritual and material goals harmonize or at least don’t get in each other’s way. Circumstances and your own attitudes facilitate following through on your dreams or turning your visions and ideals into reality. Combining imagination and effort is successful now. There can be a sense that your dreams are realizable, and you can build stronger faith and acceptance.
You have a strong capacity to dedicate yourself to things you hold dear this year, and particularly to a creative vision. Your ideas and plans are especially big and far-reaching right now.
This is a strong year for learning and communications. You are able to find new insight into old problems, and your thinking processes during this period are likely to be especially original. This is a good year for projects involving technology or New Age topics. You may find more opportunities to attend meetings and other organized group activities, to communicate online, and to take part in activities involving computers, science, or metaphysics. Relationships with younger people in your life are rewarding. A subject or even a person can be especially inspiring, prompting you to explore new perspectives.
You might also benefit from publishing, higher education, foreign affairs, and travel this year. This is a year in which you are likely to find many opportunities to expand your horizons and to take on a new perspective. It’s a strong period for life and learning experiences.
This should be a strong year for new learning endeavors, awards and rewards for completed projects, communications, and new life experiences. Your cooperative attitude helps you to succeed across all life departments. You are thinking in big terms, but also willing to put in the effort to work towards your goals.
2013 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.

Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
2014 will be a Number Five year for you. Ruled by Mercury. This is a year of exploration and freedom. It’s a time when exploration and reaching out to others brings opportunities.
