The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2014 to August 2015
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. Famous people born today: Robert Redford, Roman Polanksi, Patrick Swayze, Christian Slater, Maia Mitchell, Edward Norton, Madeleine Stowe.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
When a Quarter Moon occurs in your Return chart, as it does this year, you are at some sort of a turning point in your life, in terms of personal growth. Events that occur this year act as catalysts that get you in touch with some important issues in your emotional life. Your emotions run high, and mood swings or identity crises are possible. There may be some kind of conflict in your life arising from a great urge to do something different. The year ahead promises to be a busy, dynamic, and significant period in your life.
Saturn’s square to your Sun lifts in November, and you begin to feel that life is working for you rather than against you. Many recent concerns and worries are likely to clear up at this point. In July 2015, Jupiter transits conjunct your Sun, and you’re even more forward-looking. Confidence and popularity receive a nice boost. You are looking ahead and leaving disabling attitudes and limitations behind. You are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life.
Your powers of attraction are very strong this year – you are especially magnetic. There can be pleasing circumstances surrounding your love life, finances, and creative pursuits. You are generous with others, and they with you. You might receive financial backing or special gifts in the period ahead, although a tendency to indulge and spend money is something to look out for. You seek a little more from your love life and you are likely to receive it. Some of you could fall in love this year, or existing relationships get a nice boost. Adventure-seeking is a theme. You have a freer attitude towards expressing your affection this year. Your open heart is likely to attract easygoing friendships or love opportunities into your life. Even so, there can be some tendency for disappointments in your social life this year. You will benefit from being more discriminating with money and people you allow into your life, and if you feel people are crossing boundaries, you may need to reorganize your friendships by turning away from those who seem to be taking advantage, and toward people who are trustworthy.
Your social life is certainly more active this year, but you are also tuned in to working towards practical goals. This is a time when dedication and commitment to goals runs high. You derive special satisfaction from a job well done. This is an excellent time to cultivate patience.
This can be a very powerful year for putting strong effort into a long-time goal or dream and making it happen. A new project or goal begun this year has a good chance of being successful and long-lasting. This is an excellent year in which to make a lifestyle change, as your ability to concentrate on what really matters to you is enhanced.
Because Mercury forms a tense aspect with Neptune in your Solar Return chart, err on the side of caution if offers arrive that seem too good to be true. Some confusion or possibly deception could arise in communications this year, and you may be skipping important details without even realizing it.
Especially from November forward, you are living life with more joy this year. Watch for a tendency to go overboard when it comes to romance, money, and recreation – enjoy yourself, but not to the point that you are borrowing from your future happiness and security. There can be a strong sense that you’re beginning anew, and people tend to enjoy your company, ideas, and contributions. This is a powerful year for energy levels, focus, and commitment as well.
2014 is a Number Six year for you. Ruled by Venus. This is a year of relative contentment. It is a time when love is the easiest to attract, and partnerships formed under this vibration have a better chance for longevity. You are able to attract others, and material things as well, this year. This is a good year for establishing harmony in the family and in the home. Advice – develop existing relationships, be positive and receptive because these kinds of energies help you to attract what you desire.
2015 will be a Number Seven year for you. Ruled by Neptune. This is a year of preparation, chance, and refinement. It is not a time of dramatic changes. Instead, it’s a year when reflection on the past is helpful, and when refinements to your life path should be made. It’s a good year to study and analyze. Unexpected twists to your life story and “chance” meetings are probable. Advice – take stock of your life in order to prepare for more exciting years to come, examine the past and plan for the future, get in touch with your deepest needs and uncover your personal power, don’t strain yourself or actively try to expand.
