You have a strong desire to make a difference in life – to carve your own identity and style and to be recognized for these things. You seem to know a little about everything, and your assessment of any given situation is quick and usually accurate. Your mind is sharp, and you are an independent and highly creative thinker. Although different, your ideas are accepted by others overall, as people sense your sincerity. Somewhat rebellious, you don’t readily accept labels or restrictions by authority. One of your most valuable traits is your versatility. You bounce back from setbacks, and you learn from them. You may be attracted to people who have an aura of mystery around them, and who tend to have problems to solve. You seek a powerful and even dramatic connection to a partner.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The New Moon Solar Eclipse in your Solar Return chart suggests that the year ahead is likely to be a pivotal one. You will instinctively begin a new phase or chapter of your life. A decisively new direction emerges. This can be an emotionally stimulating time in which you feel the urge to initiate and project, even if you are not quite clear about what you are projecting. Much of the energy in your life can have a magical quality to it as things are automatically going in a certain direction. It is important to be intuitive at this time and allow the natural course to show you the way to the next step. New beginnings are in order, and you are bound to feel some level of excitement as the year unfolds.
Transiting Uranus harmonizes with your Sun this year. 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 ahead. 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. It’s a good time to join organizations and groups and to attend meetings or social events. You can find creative solutions to problems now. Flexibility is the key to success under this influence.
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’re bound 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.
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.
The year ahead is one of new beginnings and the embracing of change and improvement. You are more courageous than usual, and your personality absolutely sparkles. Others recognize you for your verve and originality. Your love life is bound to be intense, sometimes over-stimulating. Some relationships can be loaded and have their ups and downs, while others prosper. You’re highly active, motivated, and enterprising in the year ahead. Creativity thrives.
2017 is 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.
2018 will be a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It's "nose to the grindstone" time. It's a time to pay special attention to practical matters, and it's not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Positive new relationships are often not formed in a Four personal year. However, it can be a wonderful year for building, development, and laying a solid foundation for future successes. Advice - get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
