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:
With the Sun and Moon in harmony in your Solar Return chart, the year ahead should be satisfying and balanced overall. You are in comfortable demand and personally popular, and you are able to achieve a decent balance between work and play; personal and professional life. For the most part, you are on top of your game this year, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there is less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!
You are likely to be popular with others when it comes to your ideas and communications, especially as you are communicating with optimism and cheerfulness, and this can bring rewarding experiences and opportunities into your life.
You can be especially committed and dedicated to learning or a personal interest this year, and you might pour a lot of energy into it. This can be a very fruitful period as a result. Your mind is working at top speed this year. This means you can get a whole lot done, but it also suggests that you may not be paying attention to important details. Others may not always jump on board right away when it comes to your ideas or opinions. Your senses are stimulated, and you could have sudden flashes of insight or fresh new ideas. You may very well find it challenging to deal with routine matters or monotonous tasks. Learning new things is your passion this year–not recycling old ideas or performing repetitive processes.
There may be a project, idea, or person that demands much of your attention or occupies much of your thoughts. Your need to investigate and read between the lines is strong this year. It’s best used for research and increased awareness of psychological motivations, both of others and yourself.
You are more inclined to act upon your intuition this year, and your creative impulses are potent. You have an influence with you that acts to soften your disposition, smoothing out some of the tension in your life. At times, you will have a “what will be, will be” attitude. Dancing, swimming, photography, arts, and entertainment are favored. If you are an artist, this could be an especially inspired, imaginative, and productive year. Pay attention to your gut feelings, which will, more often than not, give you valuable information. If you are involved in sales, you will be able to tune into your client’s inner desires and motivations.
This can be a year in which you are building faith and confidence in your personality, skills, and talents. You can experience a stronger desire to seek out meaning, wisdom, and mental stimulation in your life during this period. Others might frequently turn to you for guidance. You can have many projects and ideas on the table now. You are hungry for variety, knowledge, and mental excitement. You could have a pleasing way with words, whether spoken or written (or both), and a love for order in the world of ideas and problem solving.
Jupiter transits in harmony with your Sun in August and September, and 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 are able to 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 strong. It’s a strong 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.
Venus in hard aspect to Jupiter in your Solar Return chart brings love and romance into your life, but you could encounter problems due to overblown expectations or excessive behavior. Find a way to strike a balance between self-gratification and the obligations of daily life.
Venus is also in hard aspect to Mars, and there can be quite a bit of impulsiveness and perhaps drama in your love life, and also with regards to finances, in the period ahead. Your affections are strongly stimulated, and you are more acutely aware of your powers of attraction. You can enjoy an increase in personal magnetism and libido, but be wary of competitiveness or tension in existing love relationships, as this aspect ignites your passions in general, whether they‘re feelings of love or anger!
You can experience more popularity or a stronger interest in others and making connections. This is a year of general fortune through your relationships and meetings.
Teamwork and camaraderie, as well as meaningful connections, are themes. You feel your life has definite purpose this year. Through your contacts with others, you are encouraged to grow.
This can be a year in which you are doing a lot of connecting and creating. The connections you make tend to be growth-oriented and encouraging. Learning, communicating, sharing, and teaching can be successful and in strong focus. The tendency to overdo things, however, should be watched, but do find ways to reach beyond your usual bounds.
2016 is a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later.

Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.
2017 will be 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.
