The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2015 to August 2016
If You Were Born Today, August 4:
You are good at networking, considerate of others, and giving of yourself. You are very sensitive, and at times dramatic. You are at your best when you’re generous and productive. Those who don’t learn this may experience many ups and downs. While you feel things deeply, you also bounce back from setbacks, often with more power than you had previously. 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. Famous people born today: Percy Bysshe Shelley, Louis Armstrong, Barack Obama, Billy Bob Thornton, Abigail Spencer, Meghan Markle, Daniel Dae Kim.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
With the Sun and Moon in harmony in your Solar Return chart, the year ahead should be satisfying and balanced overall. You are in comfortable demand and personally popular, and you are able to achieve a decent balance between work and play; personal and professional life. For the most part, you are on top of your game this year, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there is less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!
Transiting Saturn harmonizes with your Sun from January 2016 forward (and 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.
This can be a year in which you are building faith and confidence in your personality, skills, and talents. You can experience a stronger desire to seek out meaning, wisdom, and mental stimulation in your life during this period. Others might frequently turn to you for guidance.
This can be a strong time for updating your electronics and technology in ways that open up new avenues for communication or ease. Wonderfully creative ideas can fill your head this year. You might take on new and possibly alternative interests or projects.
Mars harmonizes with Saturn around the time of your birthday this year, helping to ground you. 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.
Venus conjuncts Jupiter and squares Saturn in your Solar Return chart this year, affecting either your finances or romantic relationships, or possibly both areas. In these areas, you may often find that you have to make a choice in which both alternatives are desirable, but you must choose one at the expense of the other. Venus with Jupiter suggests ease, indulgence, generosity, freedom, material comforts, and an expansive love nature. Saturn asks you to be responsible, hard working, dutiful, and serious. You need to assess areas of your life that have become dysfunctional and, in the process, you may need to sacrifice a material benefit for a spiritual good (or vice versa). The urge to expand and socialize is great, but circumstances may be such that you are unable to “play” as often as you’d like. Or, you may find that extravagances in your spending have a way of catching up with you, and buckling down is necessary this year. At times, there can be very pleasing circumstances surrounding your love life, finances, and creative pursuits. You might receive financial backing or special gifts.
This can be a good year for furthering your education, polishing your skills, or taking on a new interest. There can be some ups and downs in social relationships until you discover a better balance between work and play. It’s a good year for getting organized and for making solid progress with important projects. You can make significant headway in specific areas this year, and you are likely to feel a nice sense of direction and purpose.
2015 is a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is less active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract both things and people. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice – be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect.
2016 will be 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.
