You can be charming and would do well in any position that involves promoting, selling, and connecting. Relationships tend to be long-term, responsible, and possibly traditional. While you are a progressive thinker, your family values are strong.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:
Your birthday this year occurs shortly after a New Moon, suggesting a time of new beginnings and fresh energy. You are instinctively starting a new phase in your life. It’s time to give your life a makeover and to branch out into the untried.
This can be a year in which you experience important turning points, or you could begin new projects or goals that have a long-term impact on your life.
Transiting Saturn continues to transit in harmony with your Sun until October 2016. This suggests benefits from keeping your feet on the ground and paying attention to, and honoring, tradition as well as tried-and-true methods. Work you have done in the past begins to pay off now – not necessarily in dramatic ways, but in small, measurable ways. You may be recognized or rewarded in some way for the efforts you put forth. When you project a more responsible and credible “you”, people in authority are more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work. This is a time in which you put your life in order in some significant manner. The key to success under this influence is adopting a realistic, practical, disciplined, and orderly approach to your life. Having a strong sense for both tradition and innovation opens doors for you. You have a real sense of tomorrow now, so it’s easier for you to take the necessary steps to make all of your “tomorrows” better.
Just when Saturn moves out of transit to your Sun, Jupiter moves into transiting harmony. From October 2016 forward, you benefit from a Jupiter transit. You have a stronger than usual desire to improve, grow, and learn. This is a fortunate aspect that helps boost optimism and confidence, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve. Matters related to universities, higher education, organized religion, publishing, legal affairs, and foreign interests can be especially strong. It’s a strong time to further your education. You are likely to enjoy a larger perspective on matters that keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses.
You are more emotionally invested in relating well with others this year, and you can be especially reasonable in your dealings. Negotiations are fair and clear. Even so, there can be some problems with communication blocks or delays with communications and transportation. Your thoughts are likely to be quite sober at times, and you should do your best to avoid negative thinking.
There can be some fireworks in key relationships this year. Feelings can sometimes run hot and cold in love. Your affections are strongly stimulated, and you are more acutely aware of your powers of attraction. You can enjoy an increase in personal magnetism, but timing can be off and you should be wary of competitiveness or tension in existing love relationships, as your passions run high, whether they‘re feelings of love or anger.
Marketing and promotional activities can thrive. Business revolving around the home, nutrition, cooking, and real estate may be particularly fruitful.
You may win respect and recognition for your work or craft this year. There is a good balance between learning from tradition and seeing things progressively. Timing is strong, and you tend to make firm, favorable decisions related to work or long-term projects.
A subject or even a person can be especially inspiring, prompting you to explore new perspectives. New or improved friendships are very likely. This can be a good year for dabbling in the arts, furthering a creative hobby or craft, and exploring new artistic interests.
Certainly, spontaneity is an essential ingredient in your personal relationships this year. You quite readily embrace all that is new, unusual, and out-of-the-ordinary with regards to romantic involvements as well as financial undertakings. You have a taste for the offbeat this year, and there can be sudden or unexpected romance in your life. Renewing old ties in a new way is another strong possibility.
The year ahead is one of new beginnings. You are curious and seek out mental stimulation and new interests or experiences this year. This is a strong year for enjoying exciting ideas and for connecting with others with similar interests. New or enhanced social relationships are likely. However, you may be too quick to speak or act out at times during this period, and it would be wise to look for ways to reduce stress and slow yourself down. Friendships can improve with more communication. Old friendships might be renewed.
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.
