February 17 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: February 17
The Year Ahead
Forecast for February 2010 to February 2011
If You Were Born Today, February 17: You are a responsible, success-oriented, and driven person who rises to most any challenge that comes your way. Your staying power is tremendous, and others are generally in awe of your ability to overcome obstacles. Your professional life is extremely important to you. You need to be careful that your worldly ambitions don’t take over your life. Others admire you for your cool and collected approach to the world, and although you enjoy this reputation, it can come at a price–you don’t always open your heart to others and might feel alone even if you are surrounded by people. Famous people born today: Rene Russo, Lou Diamond Phillips, Michael Jordan, Denise Richards, Billie Joe Armstrong, Paris Hilton, Margaret Truman.
Your Birthday Year Forecast: With the Sun and Moon in a waxing semi-square at the time of your birthday this year, the period ahead is one of new initiatives and action. You possess quite a bit of energy, but you must be aware that emotions color much of what you do this year. It can be hard to be objective as a result.
Both Neptune and Chiron are transiting conjunct your Sun this year. You are likely to be recognized for your more unique qualities. Your personal magnetism runs quite high. You have the chance to improve your relationships with others–and with yourself! A humbly confident approach to life earns you the most respect. Teaching others may be part of the picture, informally or formally. Opportunities–both personal and professional–are likely to present themselves. You are not looking for credit for what you do, which frees you up to get it anyhow! You are tuning into your imaginative and artistic side. You may often rely on your instinctual judgment. This is a good year for self-improvement programs or efforts. The need to “get away from it all” — for some peace and quiet now and again — will be strong. A more sensitive–even mysterious–persona is projected this year, and this can attract pleasantly unusual circumstances (and people) into your life. You will want to reserve time alone–away from the hectic pace of life–for reflection, prayer, and meditation. Some may find the influence of Sun-Neptune confusing, however, because they don’t know exactly where they are headed. A noncommittal attitude in your personal life could leave people in your life feeling frustrated with you as you attempt to find yourself. If this is the case, it would be wise to cut yourself some slack (not too much!). During this time, you may be unsure where to direct your willpower. You could be undergoing confusion about what you want from life, where you are headed, and how to go about satisfying your ego. There is a reason behind this “identity crisis”–you are learning to let go of ego attachments.
Mars harmonizes with Saturn around the the time of your birthday this year, and while Neptune’s influence can be a confusing and possibly even impractical one, Mars-Saturn helps to ground you. Much can be accomplished this year, especially if you move ahead methodically. 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. The approach that seems to work best with this aspect is a step-by-step one, with modest ambitions and the appreciation of slow but steady progress.
Venus is conjunct Jupiter and sextile Pluto in your Solar Return chart. This configuration boosts your personal magnetism and allows you to find deeper meaning in your love relationships this year. It can also indicate a strong year for finances. Pleasant changes in your love life may be in the picture. Contentedness, patience, and acceptance of the need for change in order to grow in love are virtues this year, and as a result, you tend to attract positive circumstances (and people) into your life. This influence can indicate favorable outcomes when it comes to legal affairs, education, and travel. Others are looking on you favorably, particularly friends and lovers (or potential lovers). You are more friendly, optimistic, and big-hearted than usual. You could find that you easily win others’ trust. Healthy speculation is favored. Some of you may fall in love under this influence, or find your love life particularly satisfying and fulfilling this year.
Saturn is square Pluto in your Solar Return chart. This suggests a need for you to come to terms with your own powers of authority and your effectiveness. Power struggles, frustration, and manipulation are possible themes this year. You may desire change, but feel blocked by others or by circumstances. Alternatively, you may be attempting to resist change that is inevitable. Persistence will pay off in the end, and the need to adjust your expectations becomes obvious.
With Jupiter sextile Pluto, initiatives involving business, the law, and commerce are likely to improve for you this year due to increased personal influence, faith, and insight.
Social and love relationships thrive this year and finances improve, likely through employing intelligent strategy. Your personal magnetism runs especially high during this period of your life. Work is solid and brings slow but steady rewards. You may find your interest in spirituality and healing arts increases this year. You benefit from practice and formal studies this year, if possible.
2010 is a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to deal with practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
2011 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. It’s a good time to advertise and sell. Surprises are in store, and the routine is broken. This is a year when exciting relationships can be formed, or, if you are already in a partnership, new life is breathed into the relationship. Advice – explore, look for adventure, keep your eyes open for opportunities, mingle.
