August 31 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: August 31
The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2007 to August 2008
The Sun conjuncts the South Node in your Solar Return chart, indicating that you are likely to be dealing with karma in your personal relationships, especially those with men. You may be feeling hesitant about pursuing your goals or “taking” what you want from life. Relationships always mirror our own inner conflicts, but this year, you are bound to find particular meaning in your relationship dynamics in terms of your own life path.
The Sun squaring Jupiter around the time of your birthday this year suggests ups and downs of enthusiasm and energy. At times you may tend to overdo things or to promise more than you can deliver due to an optimistic, but not necessarily realistic, attitude. Your eyes may be bigger than your stomach. You may feel vague restlessness and discontent with life as it is, although you are generally in a happy mood. Elevated moods could also be rather unstable, as they may not be based on reality. Channeled well, this energy can represent creative power.
Saturn transits conjunct your Sun in the year ahead. New responsibilities are likely to present themselves, or you are required to take your current responsibilities more seriously. Although Saturn’s influence is traditionally considered restrictive, it does not have to be a depressing influence by all means. Some people react in such a way, but others benefit greatly from the stark realism that now enters their lives. The kind of progress you make now may not seem significant for the time being, but you will look back on this period of your life as one in which you truly made REAL progress towards your goals. You may be recognized or rewarded in some way for the efforts you put forth. Because you project a more responsible and credible you, people in authority tend to be more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work. Practical matters come into strong focus and demand attention. You are likely to cut out some of the frivolous things in your life this year.
Despite this drive for security and stability, however, you are also discovering your more impatient and rebellious side in the year ahead. If you do find yourself unreasonably stressed, it’s a good idea to figure out the source of your anger and deal with these issues. If you have not been very assertive, you are likely to discover your “voice” during this period.
Venus opposes Neptune in your Solar Return this year. Some caution with your personal finances and your social relationships is in order. Most importantly, you should do your best to watch out for tendencies towards self-deception. Things might look too good to be true, simply because you want to see the best in others. Relationship ups and downs are possible, as this could be a year when romantic mirages are more likely. The “highs” of a relationship may be thrilling, but the accompanying “lows” can be draining. Uncertainty may characterize your love relationships from time to time this year. Be careful not to set yourself up for disappointment. The same goes for finances.
Helping you out is a sextile between Venus and Mars. Venus, the goddess of love, in harmonious contact with phallic Mars suggests pleasant sexual tension, libidinal attraction, and playful competitiveness in relationships. Romance is in the air, as this aspect increases your sensuality, sex appeal, and animal magnetism. In some cases, marriage occurs with this aspect. Now is also a good time to engage in creative projects and to join with others in pursuing a common goal. If you are involved in competition, you could come out a winner.
You are inclined to assert your will powerfully in the year ahead, as freedom is more important to you than usual. Some restlessness is likely. Nevertheless, increased responsibilities and the need to pay extra attention to your practical affairs are also themes. Focus and commitment are keys to success! Getting your finances and your love life in order plays a big role. Although ups and downs and a few disappointments in these areas of life are likely, the year is positive for personal relationships and creativity overall.
2007 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.
2008 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.
