If Today is Your Birthday: August 23
The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2015 to August 2016
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 around a First Quarter Moon this year, and you are reaching an important turning point in terms of personal growth. You may be more emotional this year, and should watch for unnecessary conflicts and making hasty decisions as a result. Otherwise, this is a year of great energy, motivation, and growth. You are more ambitious and desirous of action in the year ahead. This should be a busy, dynamic period in your life.
The Sun conjuncts Jupiter in your Solar Return chart, bringing more awareness of moral issues and long-term goals, as well as a stronger than usual desire to improve and learn this year. Optimism and confidence are with you, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve this year. You are more sociable and might meet especially helpful people during this period. Travel opportunities are more likely. Your broader perspective on matters this year keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses and strains.
Saturn is no longer in tense aspect with your Sun – it’s moving out from this aspect as your birthday year begins. This tends to feel as if a weight has been lifted from you. You may be feeling freer now. Ideally, you have become more self-reliant and organized.
Sharing ideas with others is important to year, but especially so in one-on-one situations. You may have a special confidante in the period ahead.
You are attracted to all that is new, unusual, and out-of-the-ordinary with regards to romantic involvements as well as financial undertakings. You are ready to experiment. This could be a good year for financial undertakings involving electronics, technology, the internet, metaphysics, and the arts, as well as group activities. 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 mind is sharp and sometimes combative, and the best way to use this energy well is to “attack” mental work, learning, and projects. Much can be accomplished if you apply your increased energy to your work or interests.
This can be a strong year for taking care of your responsibilities and for applying yourself to your work. You are especially skilled at planning ahead and devising effective strategy. People tend to respond your ideas positively.
Your social life can be especially interesting and progressive this year, and your need for freedom to be yourself is pronounced in your relationships. You could find that what and who you value changes or becomes clearer this year, and goals can very well adjust along with these discoveries. Permanent alliances can be formed during this period of your life. Good energy is with you for really applying yourself to your work or projects.
2015 is a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time, when it is easy to enjoy life and other people. Focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure. It is likely to be a rather lighthearted year, when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a good year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out, but avoid scattering your energies.
2016 will be a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to deal with practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Positive new relationships are generally not formed in a Four personal year. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
