Forecast for August 2016 to August 2017
If You Were Born Today, August 31:
You can be extremely persuasive and charming.

You have a strong presence and magnetism – qualities that help you immensely towards achievement and success. Security is important to you, and you will work hard to make sure your life is as stable as possible. While you can have a lot of things going on at once, you at your best when you stay organized and when you develop routines and schedules. While you are romantically inclined, you may have your fair share of challenges in love. Luckily, you grow and learn from early mistakes. You are intuitively drawn to loyal, stable partners because of a strong need for security in love. You seek balance in your personal relationships, and you are not afraid to work hard to achieve it.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The Moon is in its Balsamic phase in your Solar Return chart, marking this year the end of an important cycle, or stage of growth, in your life. You take more down time than usual, and this is natural, even good for you. This is a year when you are likely closing important projects or “chapters” in your life. This is an important year for reorienting yourself – discovering what you want, and identifying what you need to do in order to move forward more positively.
Neptune is no longer opposing your Sun, and there is considerably more clarity in your life now than there was in the last birthday year period.
This year, you’re bound to enjoy increased social opportunities as well as a boost in your personal popularity and magnetism. Others are looking upon you favorably, particularly friends and lovers (or potential lovers). You are more friendly, optimistic, and big-hearted than usual. A cheerful and hopeful outlook increases your chances of gaining cooperation from others. This is a sociable, and perhaps self-indulgent, time when the pursuit of pleasure is one of your high priorities! You could find that you are more open and trusting of friends and lovers and that you easily win others’ trust.
You naturally nurture and support others this year. Needs and cravings seem to be in harmony, or at least not in conflict, with those of your loved ones. It makes you feel good to help and support, and family life is likely to run more smoothly than usual as a result. However, you need to be sure to take care of yourself in the process.
You have a strong desire to share your joy or good fortune with others. You can be very skillful when expressing your beliefs and ideas this year. You can be a persuasive salesperson, guide, teacher, or advocate. You have good artistic sensitivity this year, and you are especially candid and enthusiastic, which endears you to others. You have added charm and graciousness during this period. Your taste is on the more lavish side this year.
Your ability to express yourself and to solve problems is enhanced. 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. Work, especially in communications, goes well. 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 comes easily. Public relations and negotiations tend to run especially smoothly. This is a time for making long-range plans, seeing the big picture, and thinking about what is really important to you in the long run.
There can be significant involvement in publishing, television, or other areas where sharing ideas with large groups is a theme.
Pleasing circumstances surrounding your love life, finances, and creative pursuits are in store this year. You are generous, and others return the favor. You might receive financial backing or special gifts in the period ahead. You seek a little more from your love life and you are likely to receive it. Some of you could fall in love this year, or existing relationships are enhanced. Adventure-seeking is a theme.
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. You may be called to task for a responsibility that you’ve avoided in the past.
You are likely to attract growth-oriented relationships into your life. Your powers of negotiation are very strong.
The year ahead can be a strong period for socializing, new interests, and learning. You are better able to come to a good balance in attitude this year, and many life departments can benefit. You’re in an exceptionally strong position for taking advantage of new opportunities while keeping your feet on the ground. You are willing to put in effort for the projects that matter, but you are also giving your social life and leisure time a lot of attention.
2016 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.
2017 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.
