Forecast for July 2017 to July 2018

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:
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!
This can be a great year for motivation and ambition to do your best, whether this is about motivating yourself to improve your health and fitness or to be number one in your work or with business. As long as this is a gentle push that doesn’t stress you out, it’s a good time for doing a little more and feeling great about it.
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.
This can be a year in which you are 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. Your energy levels are generally strong, and your sense of timing better than usual. Independent work is favored and competitive activities may also thrive this year, although you may need to tone things down at times and learn more patience. Your passions and enthusiasm run high, and the trick is to channel this extra energy constructively.
Pleasing circumstances surrounding your love life, finances, and creative pursuits are in store this year. You are more generous, and others return the favor. You might receive financial backing or special gifts in the period ahead. You seek a little more from your love life and you are likely to receive it. Some of you could fall in love this year, or existing relationships are enhanced. Adventure-seeking is a theme.
Nevertheless, some adjustments in your life are necessary due to overblown expectations. Do what you can to keep your feet on the ground and avoid expecting perfection from your relationships. In your love life or in your closest associations, there can be some strife due to off timing and impatience. Your affections are strongly stimulated, and you are more acutely aware of your powers of attraction this year. Watch for competitiveness or tension in existing love relationships.
Uranus continues to transit your Sun until March 2018 (since May 2017). 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.

Until February 2018, Chiron continues to transit in harmony to your Sun, however, and this supports you and helps 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 are not content with restrictive circumstances this year. You’re zealous, motivated, and especially productive, although energy can be chaotic at time. Creativity thrives, and you’re likely to make some changes to your personality or self-expression that enliven your life. Friendships and communications are highly favored. This can be a year of rewarding projects, conversations, and social connections. Competitiveness can lead to good things but watch for taking this to the point that you’re energetically drained.
2017 is 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.
2018 will be a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice - let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.
