The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2020 to August 2021
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 backward 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:
The Sun in a waxing sextile to the Moon in your Solar Return chart has a fortunate influence on your year ahead. You can be especially productive this year, as in many ways you are starting fresh, but you have a rather clear vision of what you want to accomplish. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa, which helps to boost your confidence and happiness levels. You more readily accept that challenges are part of the natural cycle in life, which in turn helps you to meet them with confidence and to worry less. You are likely to be on top of your game this year for the most part, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. A comfortable level of personal popularity helps to keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there will be less stress on both your mind and body.
This can be a good time for updating your electronics and technology in ways that open up new avenues for communication or ease. Wonderfully creative ideas can fill your head this year.
It’s a particularly strong year for making connections and exploring your personal interests. You more readily embrace those things new, unusual, and out-of-the-ordinary with pleasures, love, or financial pursuits. You are ready to experiment, and while not necessarily non-commital, you do value your ability to choose your pleasures. This could be a good year for financial undertakings involving electronics, technology, the internet, metaphysics, and the arts. 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.
Your love nature is strong, but given to extremes at times. Over-inflated expectations is something to watch out for. You may overvalue something (or someone). There’s a dramatic, extravagant, or overindulgent theme that can stem from some inner discontent and a desire for more from life than daily routines. Watch for overspending.
You tend to be a bit bolder, more assertive, and energetic. You are especially interested in setting goals and challenges for yourself, and you’re taking the necessary action to meet them. You may meet or interact with others who encourage or inspire you in some way to have more confidence in yourself. Independent work is favored and competitive activities may also thrive this year.
At the same time, you are likely to 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 definite purpose this year. Through your contacts, you are encouraged to grow. You may assume a leadership role.
This is a strong period for publicity and any other endeavors that involve spreading the word. As well, your ability to be objective–or to see the “big picture”–can be especially pronounced and rewarding this year.
A Mars-Node connection stirs passions and could be indicative of a union, the beginning of a significant new relationship, the intensification of an existing romance, or particularly intense and satisfying projects.
With a Mars-Pluto challenge, you could move mountains when it comes to pushing your projects ahead if your channel this determined energy well. If mishandled, however, you could be argumentative or stressed. It may be best to avoid taking extreme measures to make things happen your way, and avoid people who might be doing same. Deliberately trying to maneuver things in order to get the upper hand will be a lesson in frustration. It may not be worth it in the end.
You’re likely to experience a stronger desire to seek meaning, wisdom, and mental stimulation in your life during this period. Others might frequently turn to you for guidance.
You’re especially creative and energy levels increase in the period ahead, although they can also be up and down. You can experience stop-and-go energy, and it’s best to take advantage of the periods when you’re feeling especially enterprising and confident. You’re growing through your connections, and you’re finding ways to heal and improve.
2020 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.
2021 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.

You can also write to email@example.com with your birth data and a request for your Sun sign.
These interpretations are partially based on the Solar Return chart in astrology. Of course, the Solar Return chart is most accurate, personalized, and descriptive when the birth time and place (in addition to the birth date) are known.
