If Today is Your Birthday: July 23
The Year Ahead
Forecast for July 2015 to July 2016
If You Were Born Today, July 23:
You are a very curious person, and your mental restlessness can attract a colorful life. Even if you don’t move around physically or travel, you are always looking for new adventures of the mind. You are friendly, likeable, and you need mental stimulation. Others tend to love your personal “take” on things, and they do enjoy your company. You may need to develop follow-through. You are attracted to unusual people and those who might bring a certain level of intensity or drama into your life. Famous people born today: Woody Harrelson, Slash, Daniel Radcliffe, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Wesley, Charisma Carpenter.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
Your birthday occurs around a First 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 great energy, motivation, and growth. You are more ambitious and desirous of action in the year ahead. This should be a busy, dynamic period in your life.
Transiting Saturn continues to harmonize with your Sun until October. This suggests benefits from keeping your feet on the ground and paying attention to, and honoring, tradition as well as tried-and-true methods. Work you have done in the past begins to pay off this year–not necessarily in dramatic ways, but in small, measurable ways. You may be recognized or rewarded in some way for the efforts you put forth. When you project a more responsible and credible “you”, people in authority are more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work. This is a year in which you put your life in order in some significant manner. The key to success this year is adopting a realistic, practical, disciplined, and orderly approach to your life. Having a strong sense for both tradition and innovation opens doors for you.
This can be a stand-out year for communications, ideas, and making connections. There can be a hectic pace at times, but you can be very productive during this period in all types of communications–writing, speaking, learning, teaching, and so forth.
Mercury harmonizing with Saturn certainly helps to ground your thinking and to turn your thoughts to practical considerations. 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, to do detail work, and to 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.
Your unique manner of expressing and asserting yourself is pronounced this year. It is easier than ever to express your individuality in a manner that is true to you.
This can be a year in which bursts of restlessness, rebellion, and impatience figure prominently, however. You have a tendency to act on sudden impulses without considering consequences. You assert your will and individuality powerfully, and you are ready to fight for freedom. 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. Arguments and confrontations are possible.
Energy fluctuates this year. Anger can erupt seemingly from nowhere. If you aren’t too rash or impulsive, you might be able to free yourself from restrictive circumstances. You could also have more courage than usual to do things that break the routine, and confrontations engaged in this year could clear the air and help you to move forward.
Venus conjuncts Jupiter and squares Saturn in your Solar Return chart this year, affecting either your finances or romantic relationships, or possibly both areas. In these areas, you may often find that you have to make a choice in which both alternatives are desirable, but you must choose one at the expense of the other. Venus with Jupiter suggests ease, indulgence, generosity, freedom, material comforts, and an expansive love nature. Saturn asks you to be responsible, hard working, dutiful, and serious. You need to assess areas of your life that have become dysfunctional and, in the process, you may need to sacrifice a material benefit for a spiritual good (or vice versa). The urge to expand and socialize is great, but circumstances may be such that you are unable to “play” as often as you’d like. Or, you may find that extravagances in your spending have a way of catching up with you, and buckling down is necessary this year. At times, there can be very pleasing circumstances surrounding your love life, finances, and creative pursuits. You might receive financial backing or special gifts.
You are more courageous about taking on new projects or goals this year. However, you can sometimes shoot yourself in the foot, so to speak, by being too impatient or willful, as you can put a lot of pressure on yourself this year. There can be stronger focus and harder work on important projects this year, which leads to solid results. It’s a good year to get organized.
2015 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.
2016 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. It is likely to be a rather lighthearted year when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a good year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out, but avoid scattering your energies.
