The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2023 to August 2024
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 exceptionally talented at the art of persuasion. This is a good birthday for entertainers and salespeople, although there is always a need or craving for downtime – 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, Carroll O’Connor, James Baldwin, Edward Furlong, Mary-Louise Parker, Joanna Cassidy, Michelle Lee, Matthew Del Negro, Victoria Jackson, Alvina August, Cynthia Stevenson.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
Your birthday follows a Full Moon this year, and you can frequently find yourself guiding and sharing during this period. Others frequently turn to you for advice, and you are especially willing to offer your help. It’s a strong year for publicity and any other endeavors that involve spreading the word. As well, your ability to be objective–or to see the “big picture”–is in the spotlight and rewarding this year.
There is little moderation in your life this year. Connections are made or ended, or your job focus may change as one focus fades to make way for a new direction. A project could complete and bear fruit. The year ahead is certain to be a very busy, dynamic, and significant period in your life.
A Mars-Jupiter influence in your Solar Return chart infuses the year with an enterprising spirit. This is a strong aspect for professional as well as personal opportunities. Your faith in your ability to produce and to win takes you places you perhaps never imagined. There can be positive outcomes in competitive activities, including sports and business, for example. You are more courageous about discovering the right activities for you, and you’re especially ready to take on a challenge.
Still, another focus this year can be nurture and supporting others. Needs and cravings are in strong focus, and you’re drawn to those things you feel are more wholesome, healthy, and natural. This can be a period in which you make significant lifestyle improvements and/or positive changes to your home and family life. It’s also a fine time for satisfying pet projects and hobbies.
While there can be some erratic elements to your social or love life, it can be an important year for attracting supportive, pleasant, or loving relationships. Your popularity increases and efforts to smooth over challenges in partnerships are more likely to succeed. You’re in better shape for negotiations and unions or partnerships.
It’s a year of powerful union, strong feelings, and good experiences with competitions. Physical energy can figure strongly. You’re more goal-oriented. Do watch for some impulsiveness in love.
You can feel energized and inspired creatively at this time, ready to fight for something you believe in. You find it easier to assert yourself and pursue your desires.
Still, with Mercury in challenging aspect to Saturn in your Solar Return chart, some difficulties and delays with communications are likely. Choosing your words more carefully can be beneficial. Aim to work smarter rather than harder. Doing editing and reviewing work can be rewarding.
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.
Relationships stand out as especially notable and growth-oriented. You’re in demand this year! Some stop-and-go energy points to the need to take advantage of times when energy levels are high, as well as the need to find inspiration in what you’re doing.
2023 is a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It's generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice - take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.
2024 will be 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.
