The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2014 to August 2015
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:
The Moon is in its Balsamic phase in your Solar Return chart, marking the end of an important cycle, or stage of growth, in your life. You take more “down time” than normal, and this is natural, even good for you this year.
Transiting Saturn squares your Sun from December forward, and will have you reorganizing your priorities. You’ll be working hard at disciplining yourself. As you face obstacles to your goals, you begin to see the tools with which you have to overcome them. A dose of realism may seem forced upon you from time to time during this period, but your efforts to measure up to expectations can ultimately increase your confidence in your ability to be responsible for yourself. You are likely to have new or increased responsibilities, and it might take some time to get adjusted to them. The need to re-structure and re-organize your life will be apparent. You may lose yourself in work and responsibilities and take yourself too seriously! This is a time for working hard, but it’s important to make time for relaxation and meditation as well. Most commonly, this influence suggests that a period of the year ahead may be felt to be physically draining and frustrating. When you begin to feel this influence, the best strategy is to take a step back, avoid worrying about what others think of you, and simply apply yourself to your work and duties until it passes. Recognize that you may be challenging yourself by expecting too much. Your ego may be a little frail at this point, and, as a result, you may be harder on yourself than you should be. Much can be accomplished this year. Although you may not see immediate results for your efforts, important groundwork can be laid for the future.
You can convey your ideas more powerfully this year. You are quick to take the initiative and to put your thoughts into action. Adventuresome travel may be part of the picture. There can be more activity with young people, making connections, and learning. You are more inclined to put your ideas into action than usual. There may be a project, idea, or person that demands much of your attention or occupies much of your thoughts. It’s a strong year for any project or studies that require concentrated effort. You are especially resourceful.
You can bring great discipline and meaning to mental work of any kind this year. As far as mental output goes, you are more productive in a reliable and consistent way. You derive satisfaction from a job well done, especially if you can readily attach meaning to it. You are likely to enjoy dramatically increased powers of concentration. This is an excellent year in which to cultivate patience as well as to weed out the unnecessary in order to focus on what really matters. You may be more deliberate in how you approach communicating with others, choosing your words more carefully and successfully. Improved communications is the end result, and you might be surprised at how this can improve your success in general.
Watch for competitiveness or tension in your social life, as your passions are ignited this year, whether your feelings are of love or anger. Your social life is certainly more active this year, but you are also tuned in to working towards practical goals. This is a time when dedication and commitment to goals runs high. You derive special satisfaction from a job well done. This is an excellent time to cultivate patience.
With Mars conjunct Saturn in your Solar Return chart, you are more determined and hard-working than usual. This is an excellent time to get organized and to stick with projects through to the end. When you face obstacles to your goals, which is a likely scenario this year, you are likely to just keep on pushing. Progress may be slow, but it’s steady and solid. What you accomplish now will benefit you for years to come.
This is a powerful year for focus and commitment, but you should watch for a tendency to work yourself too hard, and with your social life, to set your expectations too high. There can be an increased ability to focus on those things that truly matter, and you can be very productive as a result. This is a strong year for better organizing significant areas of your life.

This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice – be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect.
