The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2017 to August 2018
If You Were Born Today, August 2:
You are witty, charming, creative, and independent, although you thrive when in partnership and love the security of a long-term relationship. You are especially talented at the art of persuasion. This is a good birthday for entertainers and salespeople, although there is always a need or craving for down time – a simpler life. Your ability to get what you want can lead some of you down the wrong path, but rarely for long, as you are also good-hearted and prefer not to take advantage of others. You are both materially and spiritually inclined and will do what it takes to live as free from restriction and control as possible. Famous people born today: Peter O’Toole, Carrol O’Connor, James Baldwin, Edward Furlong, Mary-Louise Parker.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
With the Sun and Moon in harmony in your Solar Return chart, the year ahead should be satisfying and balanced overall. You are in comfortable demand and personally popular, and you are able to achieve a decent balance between work and play; personal and professional life. For the most part, you are on top of your game this year, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. 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!
You are bolder, more assertive, and energetic during this period in your life. You are especially interested in setting goals and challenges for yourself this year and taking the necessary action to meet them. You may meet or interact with others who encourage or inspire you in some way to have more confidence in yourself. Your energy levels are generally strong, and your sense of timing better than usual. Independent work is favored and competitive activities may also thrive this year, although you may need to tone things down at times and learn more patience. Your passions and enthusiasm run high, and the trick is to channel this extra energy constructively.
You are imaginative, creative, and communicate warmly and considerately. This is a favorable period for both teaching and learning, and for expressing feelings. Researching cooking, health, and nutrition can be fruitful now. It’s also a strong time for marketing, promotion, and building a thriving business with thoughtful and creative details. There is a good balance between learning from tradition and seeing things progressively at this time. Your timing is generally good, and you tend to make strong decisions related to work or long-term projects.
You’re in generally good shape for social meetings and events. You take a few more personal risks than usual, embracing the new, unusual, or nontraditional. You have a taste for the offbeat this year, and this energy can bring sudden or unexpected romance into your life, perhaps a scenario that feels like love at first sight. This may be a pivotal year for relationships and your social life.
You are likely to show tremendous dedication to a particular project or venture this year, whether it’s for business or recreation. You are focused, detail-oriented, and may be perfectionistic.
You’re zealous, motivated, and especially productive in the year ahead. Creativity thrives, and you’re likely to make some changes to your personality or self-expression that enliven your life. This can be a particularly active and assertive period in your life. It’s a time of rewarding projects, conversations, and social connection. Competitiveness can lead to good things but watch for taking this to the point that you’re energetically drained.
2017 is a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is generally not as active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract what--and who--you want into your life now. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice - be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect, develop, build, and attract.
2018 will be a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time when you find it natural and easy to enjoy life and other people. The focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure than you are in other years. It's likely to be a rather lighthearted year when opportunities for "play" time are greater than usual. It's also a favorable year for expressing your creativity. Advice - reach out and connect but avoid scattering your energies.
