The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2017 to August 2018
If You Were Born Today, August 18:
You are at once determined and emotional, so that there is a distinct tough side to your nature, yet a deeper, more sensitive and intuitive side as well. You love to learn, and will constantly seek out experiences that add to your knowledge throughout your life. Your mind is very strong and powerful, sometimes to the point of obsession! You can easily become fixated on one particular thing or feeling. If you pour your focus and determination into a particular life path or goal, your chances of success are great. With self-discipline, you can achieve anything you set your mind upon. You can be rather stubborn and rigid at times, but you are also friendly and likable. Your love life tends to be rather stable, as you think in terms of practicality and the long-term.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:
Transiting Uranus harmonizes with your Sun until March 2018. Your personality is sparkling during this period, which is sure to attract new circumstances and people into your life. Exciting (not jarring) changes and new interests characterize the period. It’s easier than ever to express your unique individuality, and if this involves changing careers or jobs, a new love affair, or an entirely new hobby, it’s something that takes you forward into unexplored territory. You are more willing to adapt to new circumstances, ideas, and unfamiliar situations this year. It’s a good time to join organizations and groups and to attend meetings or social events. You can find especially creative solutions to problems.
You are likely to feel very inspired to improve and do your best in the period ahead. You may assume a leadership role and 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 a definite purpose this year. You are encouraged to grow through your connections with others.
You are likely to enjoy professional as well as personal opportunities. Your faith in your ability to produce and to win takes you places you perhaps never imagined. You are able to see the “big picture”, which helps you to plan effectively. You might enjoy significant wins and positive outcomes in competitive activities, including sports and business, for example.
At the same time, you benefit from a grounding influence. Work is solid this year, and you can see results from your efforts, or at least foresee success down the road. This gives you a sense of responsibility and a feeling of directedness and purposefulness. Traditional methods work, and thoroughness brings rewards. Practice or refining a technique is favored this year. The approach that seems to work best with this aspect is a step-by-step one and the appreciation of slow but steady progress.
There can be a stronger tendency toward, or desire for, commitment and deep involvement in your relationships in the period ahead. You are taking love or friendship connections seriously!
At times this year, there can be some intensity in your love or social life, as you want to grow and develop in these areas of life. You should watch for impatience or too-high expectations in this regard. Your love nature is strong although given to extremes at times. You may overvalue something (or someone). Extravagances are possible.
As well, it’s important to double-check your communications this year, as you can be a little careless or too quick with them, and there is some tendency to drift apart from certain friends as you can be quite wrapped up in your affairs.
Travel opportunities are likely. Pinnacle successes can occur during this period – for example, publishing an important project, graduating, marrying, having a child, getting a promotion, and so forth. Matters related to universities, higher education, religion, publishing, legal affairs, and foreign interests tend to fare well.
You are more courageous than usual in the year ahead, and your personality absolutely sparkles. Others recognize you for your verve and originality. Your love life is bound to be intense, sometimes over-stimulating. You’re highly active, motivated, and enterprising in the year ahead. Creativity thrives. Some relationships can be loaded and have their ups and downs, while others prosper. This can be a particularly active period in your life, but you also take the time to enjoy quiet activities rewarding personal projects. Competitiveness can lead to good things but keep this moderate and pace yourself for best results.
2017 is a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice - let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.
2018 will be 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. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice - Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.
