If Today is Your Birthday: August 23
The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2017 to August 2018
If You Were Born Today, August 23:
Your mind is sharp and you love to talk! You may grow into this quality–beginning life as a quiet child and, over the years, you discover your voice. An interesting conversationalist, you are appreciated for both your sense of humor and sense of fun. Your creativity is strong, although you are often more of an “idea person”. You believe in your dreams, and you are more than willing to put effort into materializing them. In love, you easily attract others to you, but you can experience your share of ups and downs in your relationships. Part of the reason for this is a strong idealistic streak. You are generous and warm-hearted with your lovers, and you are willing to bend over backwards for them. However, your expectations in love may be high. Famous people born today: Barbara Eden, Gene Kelly, River Phoenix, Shelley Long, Kobe Bryant, Ray Park, Scott Kaan, Rick Springfield.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
Your birthday occurs shortly after a New Moon Solar Eclipse this year, suggesting that the year ahead is likely to be a pivotal one. You will instinctively begin a new phase or chapter of your life, and 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. New beginnings are in order, and you are bound to feel some level of excitement as the year unfolds.
This can be a year in which you experience important turning points, or you could begin new projects or goals that have a long-term impact on your life.
You are taking more interest and pride in your relationships this period. It’s a good time to strengthen and support others as well as to build trust. You tend to instinctively know how to behave in ways that boost others’ confidence. This is a good time to team up with someone to generate ideas or solve problems, or simply to listen to and be heard. Mental rapport can be experienced in your relationships now.
This can also be a pleasantly ambitious period. 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, and you should watch for impatience with others. Some disruptions in your friendships and attachments are possible. Unusual attractions (to people and things) can have you acting on a whim. You may deal with freedom versus closeness issues in your relationships. This Uranian energy may play out on other levels related to socializing, spending, and pleasure. For example, vacation plans may go awry or agreements could be broken. Impulsive spending is something to watch for. Even so, this can be a time when some relationships go through healing. Ups and downs may lead to new commitments.
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.
Transiting Uranus harmonizes with your Sun beginning in May 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 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.
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.
