If Today is Your Birthday: August 7
The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2016 to August 2017
If You Were Born Today, August 7:
You are a person who is very concerned with balance so that you always aim to be fair. Even so, you are in fact given to excess and at times you can be quite indulgent, as you love all the good things in life. You are charismatic with a friendly, communicative matter but also a highly developed spiritual or imaginative side that others might not always know about. In love, you can sometimes be impulsive, as you follow your heart and not always logic, as logical as you are in other areas of life. You might notice that you are more accountable than most when things go wrong. Famous people born today: Mata Hari, David Duchovny, Charlize Theron, Brit Marling, Liam James, Michael Shannon.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The Sun in a waxing sextile to the Moon in your Solar Return chart has a fortunate influence on your year ahead. You can be especially productive this year, as in many ways you are starting fresh, but you have a rather clear vision of what you want to accomplish. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa, which helps to boost your confidence and happiness levels. You more readily accept that challenges are part of the natural cycle in life, which in turn helps you to meet them with confidence and to worry less. You are likely to be on top of your game this year for the most part, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. A comfortable level of personal popularity helps keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there will be less stress on both your mind and body.
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 November 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 November 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 can 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 favorable. It’s a good 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.
This is an excellent year for learning new things and meeting people who bring important information into your life. Making new contacts through learning and mental pursuits figures strongly.
However, there can be some problems with 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. This may be a year when you often retreat to work on specific tasks on your own. You might be required to travel for business purposes. The maturity of young people in your life may become an issue or area of focus. Thinking in realistic and practical terms is your best bet, and the need for tangible results for your efforts is strong. Still, there can be misunderstandings, misinformation, wishful thinking, or carelessness. Verify the facts before making decisions and avoid taking precipitate action. Certainly, you might often see things that others don’t, as you’re tuned into the subtle side of life and situations, but, at the same time, you may miss practical details.
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.
There is steadiness in many areas of your life this year, although relationships can be up and down. From November forward, you’re in an exceptionally strong position for taking advantage of new opportunities. There can be recognition for your work or talents. However, you may have a difficult time focusing on one or two projects during this period of life, and you can benefit from attempts to focus your energies.
2016 is a Number Six year for you. Ruled by Venus. This is a year of relative contentment. It is a time when love is the easiest to attract, and partnerships formed under this vibration have a better chance for longevity. You are able to attract others, and material things as well, this year. This is a good year for establishing harmony in the family and in the home. Advice – develop existing relationships, be positive and receptive because these kinds of energies help you to attract what you desire.
2017 will be a Number Seven year for you. Ruled by Neptune. This is a year of preparation, chance, and refinement. It is not a time of dramatic changes. Instead, it’s a year when reflection on the past is helpful, and when refinements to your life path should be made. It’s a good year to study and analyze. Unexpected twists to your life story and “chance” meetings are probable. Advice – take stock of your life in order to prepare for more exciting years to come, examine the past and plan for the future, get in touch with your deepest needs and uncover your personal power, don’t strain yourself or actively try to expand.
