August 22 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: August 22
The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2009 to August 2010
Your birthday this year occurs shortly after a New Moon, suggesting a time of new beginnings and fresh energy. You are instinctively starting a new phase in your life. It’s time to give your life a makeover and to branch out into the untried.
Self-confidence and action are highlighted in the year ahead, with the Sun sextile Mars in your Solar Return. Your desire nature is strong, and increased physical activity, including sexual, is likely. Independent work is favored. Competitive activities may also thrive this year. Mars trine Jupiter brings increased understanding of others’ ideals, as well as a strong enterprising spirit, to the year. 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. The energies of this influence favor negotiations, deals, legal matters, reasonable speculation, and travel. This aspect also favors positive outcomes in competitive activities, including sports and business, for example.
However, with Mars square Uranus, some ups and downs in the year ahead are likely due to erratic energy, rebellious feelings, or outside interference. This can also be a time when you tend to resist others and challenge them if they are trying to hold you back. If you aren’t too rash or impulsive, you might be able to free yourself from restrictive circumstances. You could also have more courage than usual to do things that break the routine, and confrontations engaged in this year could clear the air and help you to move forward.
The Sun trines Pluto in your Solar Return chart. You display more self-confidence when it comes to achieving your goals and going after what you want. Others are bound to recognize your leadership skills and talents, or, at the very least, your potential. You are motivated to get to the bottom of matters. You might find that you become more goal-oriented, as superficial goals no longer satisfy you. You want your life path and your objectives to reflect what youre really about, and you are likely to rid yourself of unsatisfying goals this year. You benefit from being more decisive than usual, and your ability to concentrate and focus help you to achieve what you set out to do. A new project or goal begun this year has a good chance of being successful and long-lasting.
Venus harmonizes with Mercury in your Solar Return chart, adding charm to the way you present your ideas this year, certainly helping to smooth over differences in your personal relationships. This influence also helps you to express yourself more creatively, and can bring mentally stimulating friendships into your life. The lines of communication are open in personal relationships, and you’re bound to enjoy exchanging ideas with friends and romantic partners this year.
Mercury is square Mars and Pluto, and opposite Uranus, and your thinking (as well as speech) can run ahead of yourself at times! This can translate to having too many ideas to implement, or expressing yourself too hastily. Outside interferences with your projects is another possibility. It will be necessary to ground yourself from time to time, and make certain that your goals are realistic and doable. Your senses are stimulated, and you could have sudden flashes of insight or fresh new ideas. You may be a little scatter-brained under this influence, and you could find it challenging to deal with routine matters or monotonous tasks. Learning new things is your passion this year–not recycling old ideas or performing repetitive processes.
As well, romantic and social relationships, and possibly finances, are likely to stabilize this year with Venus harmonizing with Saturn and Uranus in your Solar Return chart. You may solidify a romantic relationship under this influence, or become involved with a mature partner. Circumstances may be such that you need to handle money more carefully this year, or this may simply come naturally to you now. At the same time, you are able to breathe life into social and romantic relationships. This could be a good year for financial undertakings involving electronics, technology, the internet, metaphysics, and the arts, as well as group activities. 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. Childbirth is sometimes associated with this aspect. Venus joining with the South Node of the Moon in your Solar Return chart suggests that you’re also liable to review relationships to see if they are contributing or hindering your personal growth, and/or dealing with past loves.
Mercury trine the Moon’s North Node suggests making contact through learning, communicating, and mental pursuits. It suggests an intellectually stimulating year in which the exchange of ideas with others figures prominently.
Jupiter conjunct Chiron and Neptune in your Solar Return chart suggests that idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses have more significance in your life this year. You may experience an increased need for greater understanding, wisdom, and awareness, as well as increased interest in the healing arts and holistic health this year. It may be a time during which you reconsider or revamp your personal belief system. Everyday, ordinary life may not always satisfy, as you hunger for a more idealistic life.
You are likely to enjoy many opportunities to learn about yourself and your relationship needs, as well as to expand your horizons, through contact with others. New and mentally stimulating friendships are in your forecast. Strengthening existing ties also figures strongly. An enterprising spirit is with you, although a few reality tests are likely. If you can focus your attention on more important or productive endeavors instead of pushing projects that are meeting with resistance, you will be able to accomplish much. Choose your projects wisely, as your energy levels may be erratic.
