The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2023 to August 2024
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.

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–in many ways, you’re starting fresh, but you have a rather clear vision of what you want to accomplish. External events tend to mirror your inner needs, 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 is less stress on both your mind and body.
This is a year in which you seem to react more deeply to life, or when you’re more inclined to explore your deeper feelings and desires. It’s a good time to specialize or focus on one particular project, relationship, or pursuit. You’re inclined to investigate, observe, and analyze. It’s a powerful time to get in touch with your intuition.
Certain relationships or connections in your life further your growth this year, or events take place in which you feel like you are moving forward and growing into a new phase of your life. People in authority regard you more favorably at this time. You feel your life has definite purpose this year. Through your contacts with others, you are encouraged to grow.
There can be some challenges or restrictions at times in your social life this year, but it can also be a time of maturity in a particular relationship. You’re working hard for what you want. It’s also a good time to make something more concrete of your pleasures, pastimes, or creativity. With patience, it can be an endeavor with legs to stand on.
Even so, a Venus-Jupiter square in your Solar Return chart brings love and romance into your life, but you could encounter problems due to overblown expectations or excessive behavior. You may overindulge your various appetites. Find a way to strike a balance between pleasures and obligations of daily life for best results.
This period of your life finds you especially observant and insightful. Others are fascinated with you, finding your unique qualities appealing.
You might find that you become more goal-oriented this year, as superficial goals no longer satisfy you. You want your objectives to reflect what you re really about, and you are likely to rid yourself of unsatisfying goals this year.
You’re likely to have many projects and ideas going on at this time in your life–you’re hungry for variety, knowledge, and mental excitement. You have a pleasing way with words, whether spoken or written (or both), and a love for order in the world of ideas and problem-solving.
Bursts of creativity and energy emerge at seemingly perfect times, and help you to further your goals. Healthy risk-taking is likely this year, as you are more able to spot an opportunity when you see one. It is easier than usual to break free from habits that have previously held you back from going after what you want in life.
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.
This can be a time when some relationships go through healing. Ups and downs may lead to new commitments. You’ll have a chance to heal old wounds with regards to love this year. You’re also bound to find new ways of making money.
This can be a good time to get work done with or for loved ones as well as with home and hearth. It’s also a strong period for the motivation to grow and improve a business or long-term project.
Keep an eye out for a tendency to gravitate to impractical ventures. You may experience passive-aggressiveness in others, which impacts your life in frustrating ways, or you could find relationships with others confusing and hard to define in spots. Although you may enjoy an increase in your intuitive capabilities, you could also be too open to influence. With varying energy levels, aim to take advantage of the high periods to offset the possible loss in productivity during the low-energy stages. This could also be a year in which you are considerably more creative.
The year ahead holds good energy for new opportunities. You’re optimistic and ready to take on a challenge. Despite some ups and downs socially, your social life is colorful and dynamic. You’re making significant connections this year.
2023 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 as 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.
2024 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 exploring. 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.
