If Today is Your Birthday: August 5
The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2020 to August 2021
If You Were Born Today, August 5:
You are authoritative, well-liked, and respected. You tend to do very well in whatever you choose to do, and you are especially hard-working. You are especially good at managing and directing others, although this trait can be difficult if it’s extended to your personal life! Because you are so independent and strong, you tend to do best when you are your own boss or leading in some manner. While you can be stubborn and determined, you are also versatile and open-minded enough to always learn and improve as you mature. Famous people born today: Neil Armstrong, John Saxon, Loni Anderson, John Huston, James Gunn, Jesse Williams.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
Your birthday falls shortly after a Full Moon this year, suggesting a period ahead of communication and teaching. You may be turned to for advice more frequently, and you are very willing to offer your help. This is a strong year for publicity and any other endeavors that involve spreading the word. As well, your ability to be objective–or to see the “big picture”–can be especially pronounced and rewarding this year.
There can be increased opportunities for friendship and love this year. Pleasurable activities are in focus. There can be some temptation to overspend or overdo, but also some very enjoyable moments.
Still, you’re more than willing to put in the effort and dedication to a personal interest or project this year. You’re focused, detail-oriented, and passionate.
With Venus conjunct the Moon’s North Node in your Solar Return chart, you are very likely to attract loving relationships and/or new warm social contacts into your life. Your popularity increases and efforts to smooth over challenges in partnerships are more likely to succeed. This is an excellent influence for negotiations and partnerships.
Although you are bound to show great enthusiasm for your endeavors this year, overestimating what you are capable of doing is a potential problem. You may get fired up over opposing viewpoints, and you may need to adjust your plan of action. Errors in judgment made now are likely due to impulsiveness and the overlooking of crucial details. 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.
Even so, with Mercury opposite Saturn in your Solar Return, you may be dealing with criticism or blocks to communication. Being called out can be irritating but it may very well lead to improvements. It would benefit you greatly to take the time to sort out details, improve your work, and become more efficient this year. You could find you are motivated to channel your mental energy into tasks that require structured and organized thought, tackling projects that you may have found too mundane or downright boring in other years. It’s a strong year for polishing your skills and formal learning, although there can be a lot more work to do than you bargained for.
You’re likely to 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.
Relationships are in stronger focus this year, and you can find yourself in big demand. This is a strong year for innovation, although you’re also likely to deal with some obstacles. Some challenges in relationships are possible, but this is also a year in which you’re finding ways to heal, grow, and improve. Your creative impulses are powerful, and your goals are evolving. New methods and approaches revolutionize your life.
2020 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.
2021 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.
