The Year Ahead
Forecast for July 2016 to July 2017
If You Were Born Today, July 18:
While you are very companionable and thrive in a partnership, you are also highly independent in nature, freedom-loving, and success-oriented. You are sentimental and in some ways surprisingly traditional, but your thinking is progressive. You can be known for your powerful mind, and also for your quirks! You are very loyal by nature, particularly in close relationships, but you still very much need for a relationship to grow and evolve. Famous people born today: Nelson Mandela, Vin Diesel, John Glenn, Kristen Bell, James Brolin, Elsa Pataky.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
Certain elements of your social life and financial life are stabilized, secured, and more reliable in the year ahead. An existing partnership can solidify, a romantic relationship may become steadier, or you can become involved with a mature partner. Circumstances may be such that you need to handle money more carefully this year, or this may simply come naturally to you now. Support from older people or authority figures may come by way of solid advice or tangible help. Renewed ties to old friends are possible, or a new sense of responsibility in existing friendships.
The year is strong for physical therapy and healing, as well as for having a real sense of mission.
While you can be a little impulsive at times, you aim to be very diplomatic when dealing with others this year. You are not afraid of competition, and can, in fact, find some competitiveness stimulating and motivating, but you tend to achieve much through cooperation. If you can learn to curb your impulsiveness, your insight can be a true asset.
This can be a year in which you are a little bolder, more assertive, and energetic. You are especially interested in setting goals and challenges for yourself this year, and taking the necessary action to meet them. You may meet or interact with others who encourage or inspire you in some way to have more confidence in yourself.
You often have a way with words this year, and verbalizing your feelings can be enjoyable. You can handle people well, and negotiations are favored in general. This can be a good year for dabbling in the arts, furthering a creative hobby or craft, and exploring new artistic interests.
Also, watch for impatience or fits of temper that work against you this year. There may be changes in work schedules, or life’s circumstances could challenge you in such a way that you need to change your goals or actions. This can also be a time when you tend to resist others and challenge them if they are trying to hold you back. Energy fluctuates this year. If you can avoid rash or impulsive moves, you could enjoy more courage than usual to do things that break the routine or clear the air.
Your unique manner of expressing and asserting yourself is in focus and appreciated this year. Suppressed anger is more effectively released in creative ways. Physical healing can help inner healing, and vice versa.
Advances in intellectual and mental pursuits are likely, as you make steady progress that has long-lasting results. It’s a good year in which to get organized, do detail work, and prepare for the future. Work done during this period in your life will have tangible results in the future. Relationships with younger people in your life are solidified.
Uranus transits square to your Sun from May 2017 forward. With this aspect, any situations that you have felt to be limiting of your freedom will be hard for you to accept any longer. You might experiment with a new look or manner, or simply come off in an entirely new way as you feel your life speeding up. You are not dwelling on the past, and instead, you are interested most in what the future might bring. In the process, you could resent others if they seem to be telling you what to do or think, and you are not especially receptive to good advice. There may be some confrontation with friends, a boss, or a partner that prompts a breaking of ties. Remember that you may be reacting to a bruised ego and you may not be in touch with your deeper feelings before making permanent decisions. It’s possible that you need to move on, but do take the time to make decisions wisely. You might be tempted to throw out practical or traditional considerations for more exciting or stimulating plans. Unexpected changes in plans or events are likely. Although they might be unsettling at times, 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. You are likely to be more outspoken than usual, perhaps even rebellious. This can be a strong year for artists and for developing skills and talents, particularly along creative lines.
Chiron concurrently transits in harmony with your Sun, however, and this supports you and helps to keep you humble. Projecting yourself with self-respect benefits you. You are especially appealing and charming just by being yourself. Opportunities—both personal and professional—are likely to present themselves as a result. Teaching others may be part of the picture, informally or formally.
You might surprise people with the changes you make this year, as they may seem sudden or out of character. You are making bolder moves than usual and you’re unusually resilient. You stand out as particularly personable and talented. Love and social matters can be more reliable and steady. New and exciting experiences are likely, but energy can fluctuate, and impulsive moves should be watched for. This is a strong year for making solid progress in projects or studies.
2016 is a Number Seven year for you. Ruled by Neptune. This is a year of preparation, chance, and refinement. It is not a time of dramatic changes. Instead, it’s a year when reflection on the past is helpful, and when refinements to your life path should be made. It’s a good year to study and analyze. Unexpected twists to your life story and “chance” meetings are probable. Advice – take stock of your life in order to prepare for more exciting years to come, examine the past and plan for the future, get in touch with your deepest needs and uncover your personal power, don’t strain yourself or actively try to expand.
2017 will be a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It’s generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice – take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.
