If Today is Your Birthday: August 2
The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2014 to August 2015
If You Were Born Today, August 2:
You are witty, charming, creative, and independent, although you thrive when in partnership and love the security of a long-term relationship. You are especially talented at the art of persuasion. This is a good birthday for entertainers and salespeople, although there is always a need or craving for down time – a simpler life. Your ability to get what you want can lead some of you down the wrong path, but rarely for long, as you are also good-hearted and prefer not to take advantage of others. You are both materially and spiritually inclined and will do what it takes to live as free from restriction and control as possible. Famous people born today: Peter O’Toole, Carrol O’Connor, James Baldwin, Edward Furlong, Mary-Louise Parker.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The Sun in harmonious aspect to the Moon in your Solar Return chart is a pleasant aspect, suggesting that your domestic and career needs are not in competition with one another this year. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa. 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. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!
Some form of recognition for your work or for past good deeds may be forthcoming in August and September. At this time, transiting Jupiter aligns with your Sun, and fortunate circumstances arise from a positive attitude and sincere self-expression. Your popularity increases. You are looking forward instead of behind you now, and you are more aware of moral issues and long-term goals. You can experience a stronger than usual desire to improve and learn. Optimism and confidence are with you. Problems are easier to resolve. You are more sociable and might meet especially helpful people during this period. Travel opportunities can present themselves. Your broader perspective on matters keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses and strains.
You may have opportunities to travel this year, and matters related to publishing, teaching, and writing should go especially well. You may find that you have the right information at the right time this year. You could also have big ideas and plans. You are able to visualize in broader terms and see the “big picture” now. Your optimism can help you to attract positive circumstances into your life. You are especially enthusiastic about your ideas, and expressing yourself verbally and in written from comes easily.
There can be a lot of talk about feelings and relationships this year, and you are especially charming in your communications, verbal or written, although there can be times when you are quite impatient with others and this can express itself in your communications. There can be contact with influential people or with people who help you grow, learn, and expand. Even so, a friendship may suffer or even end through a lack of communication, so while you can benefit from word of mouth, you need to be especially aware of the need to reach out on a personal level as well.
You can be especially motivated to pursue an interest, course of study, or project this year, and you can be quick to learn. In business, you tend to be a bit of a visionary this year, making it a good time for coming up with creative and imaginative plans, and also for presenting your ideas to others. However, watch closely for half-truths and putting all your eggs into one basket before getting all of the facts. As well, avoid impulsive, anger-driven communications which can be far more trouble than they’re worth.
Love and social relationships can be up and down. On one hand, you may grow and develop a bond, but another relationship could be disruptive and dramatic. There can be events in close relationships that highlight a need to let go and trust, as there can be problems with hanging on to someone, a relationship, or material things too tightly. There can be a need to detach yourself from outcomes so that you can more thoroughly enjoy the present. There can be a large purchase or expense this year that forces you to reorganize your budget or that might be a source of worry. However, there are also indications of increased income, so that the two influences tend to balance each other out.
You are more inclined to act upon your intuition, your fantasies may be especially strong, and your creative impulses are potent. Dancing, swimming, photography, arts, and entertainment are favored this year. If you are an artist, this could be an especially inspired, imaginative, and productive year. If you are involved in sales, you will be able to tune into your client’s inner desires and motivations. There is special flair to your personality.
You can be extremely focused on a project, and can make a lot of headway as a result. There is much purpose and passion in the way you direct your energies this year. You might often come to others’ defence, supporting those you love and the ideas you believe in. There is a bit of a crusader in you this year. You might often get frustrated if results of your actions are not instant, but it’s best to cultivate some patience when it comes to realizing your goals. As well, if you are not getting the results you crave, consider that you might be aiming too high or too wide. Watch that you don’t work so hard that you neglect your relationship needs.
You can be especially hard-working but sometimes too hard on yourself and possibly others as you attempt to get things right. This year, you may be challenged to let go of the past if it’s holding you back, but also to recognize when to stick to things and preserve those things that are important to your growth – a balance should be sought, as either extreme will not contribute to success. However, when possible, you may want to choose to work independently and at your own pace.
Cooperation tends to bring the most rewards this year. Your broader perspective on matters this year keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses and strains. Your popularity increases, and there can be a sense that you’re beginning anew. You may need to work on controlling impulses and to watch for overshooting the mark this year. When you do put in the effort, you can work tirelessly, but energy levels tend to be up and down. Aim for moderation.
2014 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.
2015 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.
