The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2013 to August 2014
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:
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 year, you can feel that your spiritual and material goals harmonize or at least don’t get in each other’s way. Circumstances and your own attitudes facilitate following through on your dreams or turning your visions and ideals into reality. Combining imagination and effort is successful now. There can be a sense that your dreams are realizable, and you can build stronger faith and acceptance.
You have a strong capacity to dedicate yourself to things you hold dear this year, and particularly to a creative vision. Your ideas and plans are especially big and far-reaching right now.
Transiting Saturn square your Sun from November forward is a rather heavy and sober influence, but also one that is certain to straighten you out on some level. You’ll be working hard at disciplining yourself. As you face obstacles to your goals, you begin to see the tools with which you have to overcome them. A dose of realism may seem forced upon you from time to time during this period, but your efforts to measure up to expectations can ultimately increase your confidence in your ability to be responsible for yourself. You are likely to have new or increased responsibilities, and it might take some time to get adjusted to them. The need to re-structure and re-organize your life will be apparent. You may lose yourself in work and responsibilities and take yourself too seriously! As long as you work hard, but take time for relaxation and meditation as well, there is nothing to worry about. Most commonly, this influence suggests that a period of the year ahead may be felt to be physically draining and frustrating. When you begin to feel this influence, all you need to do is take a step back, avoid worrying about what others think of you, and simply apply yourself to your work and duties until it passes. Recognize that you may be challenging yourself by expecting too much. Your ego may be a little frail at this point, and, as a result, you may be harder on yourself than you should be. Much can be accomplished this year. Although you may not see immediate results for your efforts, important groundwork can be laid for the future.
Playful competitiveness is likely in relationships. Romance is in the air, and your sensuality, sex appeal, and animal magnetism are increased. Successful relationships are often created or sustained in a year under the influence of this aspect. It’s a good year in which to engage in creative projects and to join with others in pursuing a common goal. Competitive success is more likely.
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 a year of new beginnings and fresh starts. While there can be sobering and possibly lonely periods at times, it’s a good time for straightening up or organizing important areas of your life. Your social life should be rewarding and pleasant, and personal magnetism runs very high.

Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
2014 will be a Number Five year for you. Ruled by Mercury. This is a year of exploration and freedom. It’s a time when exploration and reaching out to others brings opportunities.
