The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2017 to August 2018
If You Were Born Today, August 26:
You have a warm, mischievous, likable, and charismatic personality. Stability and security are extremely important to you, and you can be very practical and realistic. However, you have a dramatic streak and a craving for excitement which keep you moving forward. You have a strong character, but rarely a dominating one. People see you as sincere and humble. While there can be insecurities and worries in your youth, you are positive and growth-oriented, and many of you learn to get past them. You have a strong desire to be a master in whatever work you do, and you can usually succeed, but it typically comes when you let go of the desire and instead focus on working hard and enjoying yourself. Your emotions are powerful and you can be impulsive at times, but if you are able to channel this power into passion and focus, you can move mountains. You love to entertain and make people happy. Partnership is important to you, and you may even feel somewhat lost without it. You seek stability in love, and you have staying power in relationships. Famous people born today: Macaulay Culkin, Mother Theresa, Chris Burke, Dylan O’Brien, Chris Pine, Melissa McCarthy, Amanda Schull.
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 of 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 keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there will be less stress on both your mind and body.
You are taking more interest and pride in your relationships this period. It’s a good time to strengthen and support others as well as to build trust. You tend to instinctively know how to behave in ways that boost others’ confidence. This is a good time to team up with someone to generate ideas or solve problems, or simply to listen to and be heard. Mental rapport can be experienced in your relationships now.
You’re likely to be actively involved with teamwork and collaboration with others in the period ahead. There may be the beginning of a significant new relationship or the intensification of an existing romance.
This can also be a pleasantly ambitious period. You’re bound to enjoy professional as well as personal opportunities. Your faith in your ability to produce and to win takes you places you perhaps never imagined. You are able to see the “big picture”, which helps you to plan effectively. You might enjoy significant wins and positive outcomes in competitive activities, including sports and business, for example.
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.
At the same time, you benefit from a grounding influence. Work is solid this year, and you can see results from your efforts, or at least foresee success down the road. This gives you a sense of responsibility and a feeling of directedness and purposefulness. Traditional methods work, and thoroughness brings rewards. Practice or refining a technique is favored this year. The approach that seems to work best with this aspect is a step-by-step one and the appreciation of slow but steady progress.
At times this year, there can be some intensity in your love or social life, and you should watch for impatience with others. Some disruptions in your friendships and attachments are possible. Unusual attractions (to people and things) can have you acting on a whim. You may deal with freedom versus closeness issues in your relationships. This Uranian energy may play out on other levels related to socializing, spending, and pleasure. For example, vacation plans may go awry or agreements could be broken. Impulsive spending is something to watch for. Even so, this can be a time when some relationships go through healing. Ups and downs may lead to new commitments.
Travel opportunities are likely. Pinnacle successes can occur during this period – for example, publishing an important project, graduating, marrying, having a child, getting a promotion, and so forth. Matters related to universities, higher education, religion, publishing, legal affairs, and foreign interests tend to fare well.
The year ahead is one of constructive accomplishment and the embracing of change and improvement. You are more courageous than usual, and you’re open to change, but you’re tuning into a more moderate lifestyle that suits you well. Your love life is bound to be intense, sometimes over-stimulating. Some relationships can be loaded and have their ups and downs, while others prosper. You’re highly active, motivated, and enterprising in the year ahead. Creativity thrives.
2017 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.
2018 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.
