Forecast for January 2017 to January 2018
If You Were Born Today, January 18:
While you are essentially conservative and of a practical mind, you do have an emotional and impulsive streak. There is an inner restlessness in you that can sometimes be at the root of dramas in your life if you examine it closely. You prefer to be self-taught, finding much to enjoy in learning new things through your own studies. Poised, dynamic, and benevolent, you are an intriguing mix of intuition and practicality. Famous people born today: Cary Grant, Kevin Costner, A. A. Milne, Danny Kaye.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
Your birthday occurs around a Third Quarter Moon this year, and you are reaching an important turning point in terms of personal growth. You may be more emotional this year, and should watch for unnecessary conflicts and making hasty decisions as a result. Otherwise, this is a year of greater understanding and a strong desire to take care of business. This should be a busy, dynamic period in your life.
Uranus is shaking up some areas of your life this year. Unexpected changes in plans or events can test your patience. However, they could stimulate you to try new approaches and they certainly act to cut boredom. Your creativity is stimulated this year, but so is your excitability and your need for freedom. A strong desire to express yourself in completely different ways is likely to take hold, but sometimes the method you choose to express these needs is provocative or harsh. Surprises can most certainly happen this year, as well as the urge to do something completely new.
Mars aligns with Chiron at the time of your birthday this year, endowing you with an especially unique manner of expressing and asserting yourself. Suppressed anger is more effectively released this year in creative ways. It is easier than ever to express your individuality, as well as your sexuality, in a manner that is true to you.
You have the chance to shine this year, and you are especially appealing and charming just by being yourself. Opportunities—both personal and professional—are likely to present themselves as a result. You are not looking for credit for what you do, which frees you up to get it anyhow! Teaching others may be part of the picture, informally or formally.
The opportunity to grow through your love and social connections this year is especially strong. You are seeking intensity in love, and are especially aware of the importance of healthy relating and intimacy. You could renew and deepen love commitments or social connections. Strong and stimulating–even motivating–attractions to others are likely. Secret loves or attractions may develop and existing relationships tend to rise to a higher level of insight and understanding. Romantic relationships and attractions have a fated quality to them this year. This could be a year when you fall in love, and this could be with a person, an activity, or a cause! Meeting someone who transforms your life, and more specifically your values and attitude towards love, is possible. Strong existing relationships are likely to grow and transform in rewarding ways, as you are more open than usual to intensity and passion. Your finances could also improve dramatically this year, generally due to your increased ability to strategize and cut out frivolous expenses.
You crave and seek more freedom this year, and how you deal with this issue makes all the difference as to the overriding themes of the year. If you recognize your need for changes in key areas of your life and adapt accordingly, this can be an exciting year of discovery. However, if you resist change and insist on keeping things status quo, you are bound to feel very restless, tense, and rebellious. Either way, making healthy changes should be the focus instead of change just for the sake of change. Spontaneity, not impulsiveness, is the key to success this year. Optimism is wonderful, but when it’s blind optimism, life becomes a rollercoaster ride, so aim to keep your feet on the ground. Fortunately, you have a lot of cosmic support for this.
You are expressing yourself more clearly and you are more able to instruct others. There is a pronounced ability to order your thoughts and ideas and to recognize patterns. You can especially enjoy making plans, lists, and connections.
This is an excellent year in which to advance projects revolving around communications – writing, speaking, selling, and so forth. Your reputation may be enhanced through word of mouth. Making new contacts through learning and mental pursuits figures strongly as well. Business benefits from a more creative approach, but you should be especially careful that you aren’t missing important details. This can be a year in which you are building faith and confidence in your personality, skills, and talents.
Mars in challenging aspect to Saturn suggests some ups and downs in the year ahead due to your plans and efforts meeting with resistance. At times, circumstances seem to block your efforts to assert yourself, and you might feel like more effort than usual is required to complete tasks, which could lead to some frustration. Patience is necessary because progress may not always be steady, and energy can be stop and go. Even so, although progress may seem slow, it’s still happening! In fact, this is a great period for doing editing and refining work.
The year ahead is a busy and enterprising one, particularly along creative lines. It’s also a very important period for making lifestyle changes. There can be a strong inclination to make sudden and sweeping changes in key areas of your life. You have much energy to pour into your pursuits, although you can be a little moody when it comes to motivation for your projects – you need to feel inspired for the energy to flow well. Romantic and creative energy runs very high this year. Work on your ability to pace yourself, as it will lead to greater happiness and health. As well, temper enthusiasm with practicality for best results.
2017 is a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is less active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract both things and people. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice – be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect.
2018 will be a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time when it is easy to enjoy life and other people. Focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure.
