July 16 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: July 16
The Year Ahead
Forecast for July 2007 to July 2008
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!
The Sun trines Uranus in your Solar Return chart, bringing exciting (not jarring) changes and new interests. Its easier than ever to express your unique individuality, and if this involves changing careers or jobs, a new love affair, or an entirely new hobby, it’s something that takes you forward into unexplored territory. You are more willing to adapt to new circumstances, ideas, and unfamiliar situations this year. It’s a good time to join organizations and groups and to attend meetings or social events. You are able to find creative solutions to problems now. Flexibility is the key to success under this influence. Your personality is sparkling this year, which is sure to attract new circumstances and people into your life.
However, with the Sun in hard aspect to Jupiter, you may often be tempted to throw out practical considerations in favor of big ideas and plans that may not carry weight. Optimism can run high, but be careful of blind optimism and extravagance. Because Mercury forms a tense aspect with Neptune as well, err on the side of caution if offers arrive that seem too good to be true. Some confusion, minor misunderstandings, or possibly deception could arise in communications this year, and you may be skipping important details without even realizing it.
A pleasing trine between Venus and Pluto suggests that romantic relationships and attractions have a fated quality to them this year. This could be a year in which 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 under this influence. 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 as long as you employ strategy.
Mercury sextile Venus adds charm to the way you present your ideas this year, certainly helping to smooth over differences in your personal relationships. This influence also helps you to express yourself more creatively.
Mars sextiles Uranus, and suggests bursts of creativity and energy that help you to further your goals. Healthy risk-taking is likely this year, as you are more able to spot an opportunity when you see one. It is easier than usual to break free from habits that have previously held you back from going after what you want in life.
It’s natural for you to express your more unique qualities, to let go of bad habits that have been weighing you down, and for others to appreciate your innovative qualities in the year ahead. Your romantic and/or social life becomes deeper and more meaningful as you make necessary changes and intensify your experiences with others. It’s a strong year for starting fresh, launching new projects, socializing, and making lifestyle changes that benefit you for years to come. Avoiding the tendency towards “pie in the sky” thinking will be necessary in order to keep grounded.
2007 is 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.
2008 will be a Number Six year for you. Ruled by Venus. This is a year of relative contentment. It is a time when love is the easiest to attract, and partnerships formed under this vibration have a better chance for longevity. You are able to attract others, and material things as well, this year. This is a good year for establishing harmony in the family and in the home. Advice – develop existing relationships, be positive and receptive because these kinds of energies help you to attract what you desire.
