The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2013 to August 2014
If You Were Born Today, August 23:
Your mind is sharp and you love to talk! You may grow into this qualitybeginning 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 falls shortly after a Full Moon this year, suggesting a period of communication and teaching. You may be turned to for advice more frequently, and you are very willing to offer your help. This is a strong year 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 rewarding this year.
Busy, busy, busy! The Sun conjunct Mercury in your Solar Return chart suggests that you have a lot to do this year. At times, you may feel like the pace of your life is running ahead of you. You can be especially productive, however, in all types of communications–writing, speaking, learning, teaching, and so forth. There can be a lot of change happening during this period of your life, but generally on a small scale.
This year, you can feel that your spiritual and material goals harmonize or at least don’t get in each other’s way. Circumstances and your own attitudes facilitate following through on your dreams or turning your visions and ideals into reality. Combining imagination and effort is successful now. There can be a sense that your dreams are realizable, and you can build stronger faith and acceptance.
You have a strong capacity to dedicate yourself to things you hold dear this year, and particularly to a creative vision. Your ideas and plans are especially big and far-reaching right now.
Because Mercury forms a tense aspect with Neptune, err on the side of caution if offers arrive that seem too good to be true. Some confusion or possibly deception could arise in communications this year, and you may be skipping important details without even realizing it.
You might benefit from publishing, higher education, foreign affairs, and travel this year. This is a year in which you are likely to find many opportunities to expand your horizons and to take on a new perspective. It’s a strong period for life and learning experiences.
Intensity characterizes your personal relationships and romantic attachments this year. Passions, feelings of jealousy, and possessiveness can run high, and these emotions are in direct proportion to fear of losing someone. You are likely to have to deal with these emotions in yourself, but you may also need to handle the jealousies and possessiveness of a partner. You might also experience compulsive attractions and attachments, or attraction to complicated love relationships. The need for deeper intimacy is present, but fear of this closeness may be just as strong. Something tiny can trigger all sorts of buried emotions, and this can be very revealing! If you find yourself dredging up old hurts, examine the emotional “slush” you’ve been carrying around with you. There may be some tension over your personal finances, and/or need to make a large payment that necessitates changes in your spending habits. Finances may be complicated. Some of you could experience power struggles with money.
This should be a good year for new learning endeavors, awards and rewards for completed projects, communications, and new life experiences, although there can be times when you take too many things on. You are especially inclined to share your ideas and knowledge. You are thinking in big terms, but also willing to put in the effort to work towards your goals. Ups and downs in social or love relationships may be part of the picture this year.
2013 is a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.
2014 will be 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 less active than 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 both things and people. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice – be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect.
