The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2017 to August 2018
If You Were Born Today, August 8:
You are always looking for meaning in your life and in the things and circumstances around you. You could frequently find yourself assessing what things may be worth, and your instincts are excellent for figuring out what is worth a further look. You dislike routine and love to keep yourself active; yet you crave stability and security. A long-term, stable job that also allows you to mix things up would be ideal. Your insatiable curiosity makes you extremely interesting to know, as your ideas are always intriguing. You make a wonderful friend and companion. Even so, there can be times when you are overly practical and logical when a softer touch is more appropriate. In love, you tend to go the distance, but you do need to feel that you’re growing and improving through a relationship. You are ambitious and, while very loving, you can be quite stern when irritated. Famous people born today: Dustin Hoffman, Keith Carradine, Connie Stevens, Donald P. Bellisario, Meagan Good.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in your Solar Return chart marks this as a year of great personal significance, when major new beginnings, endings, and activities occur. This period is the culmination of a stage of personal growth and development. Recent developments in your emotional, psychological, or spiritual life come to a head. Relationships are especially significant this year. There can be increased activity in your professional and public life, causing a conflict with your domestic and personal goals. There is little moderation in your life this year! Surprises are likely. Connections are made or ended, or your job focus may change as one focus fades to make way for a new direction. The year ahead is certain to be a very busy, dynamic, and significant period in your life.
You may be feeling pleasantly attached this year, finding it natural and easy to nurture and support people in your life. You are more imaginative and attuned to the world of beauty and romance in the year ahead. Gentleness with others is the best way to harness this energy and to attract what you want into your life. There could be truly “magical” times on a romantic and social level. You are especially romantic this year, and you are likely to idealize and expand a relationship through sensitive interactions and a more giving approach. Benefits come through paying attention to your dreams and intuitions, as well as through creativity.
You’re in great shape socially and creatively as well this year. There is a distinct charm in the way you present your ideas this year, certainly helping to smooth over differences in your personal relationships. It’s a good year for cultural events, writing, and pleasure trips.
You are imaginative, creative, and communicate warmly and considerately. This is a favorable period for both teaching and learning, and for expressing feelings. Researching cooking, health, and nutrition can be fruitful now. It’s also a strong time for marketing, promotion, and building a thriving business with thoughtful and creative details. There is a good balance between learning from tradition and seeing things progressively at this time. Your timing is generally good, and you tend to make strong decisions related to work or long-term projects.
Even so, you are bolder, more assertive, and energetic during this period in your life. You are especially interested in setting goals and challenges for yourself this year and taking the necessary action to meet them. You may meet or interact with others who encourage or inspire you in some way to have more confidence in yourself. Your energy levels are generally strong, and your sense of timing better than usual. Independent work is favored and competitive activities may also thrive this year, although you may need to tone things down at times and learn more patience. Your passions and enthusiasm run high, and the trick is to channel this extra energy constructively.
There can be a stronger tendency toward, or desire for, commitment and deep involvement in your relationships in the period ahead. You are taking love or friendship connections seriously! There can be a willingness to make sacrifices if it seems the best way to make improvements in relationships and with money matters. You can be quite particular in your tastes, and good with money and savings.
You are likely to show tremendous dedication to a particular project or venture this year, whether it’s for business or recreation. You are focused, detail-oriented, and may be perfectionistic.
This is a year of reorganization, new paths, and significant relationship activity. You’re in big demand. You’re zealous, motivated, and especially productive in the year ahead. Creativity thrives, and you’re likely to make some wonderful connections. This can be a particularly active and assertive period in your life, but also a time of compromise and successful negotiation. It’s a time of rewarding projects, conversations, and social connection. Competitiveness can lead to good things but watch for taking this to the point that you’re energetically drained.
2017 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.
2018 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.
