The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2017 to August 2018
If You Were Born Today, August 20:
You are a hard worker, yet you also enjoy the comforts of home and family. Striking a balance between these two passions is important for your all-around happiness. You don’t turn to others for advice or help very readily, simply because you find much satisfaction doing things on your own; yet you are also highly companionable. You enjoy conversation, friendly companionship, and a peaceful environment. You try to avoid discord as much as you can, and due to your graciousness and gentle manner, you usually succeed. You are excellent at strategy. You may cling to your lifestyle and don’t make changes as readily as others. An overall feeling of stability is important to you. You are a very ardent, charming lover, and you may be drawn to partners who are emotional and a tad dramatic. Famous people born today: Robert Plant, Fred Durst, Connie Chung, James Marsters, Andrew Garfield, Amy Adams, Demi Lovato, John Noble.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The Moon is in its Balsamic phase in your Solar Return chart, marking this year the end of an important cycle, or stage of growth, in your life. You take more down time than usual, and this is natural, even good for you. This is a year when you are likely closing important projects or “chapters” in your life. This is an important year for reorienting yourself – discovering what you want, and identifying what you need to do in order to move forward more positively.
Transiting Uranus harmonizes with your Sun until April 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. Your passions are stirred and you’re likely to begin a new romance or intensify a current one.
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 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.
