The Year Ahead
Forecast for July 2016 to July 2017
If You Were Born Today, July 4:
You have strong business sense, but you are also quite wise when it comes to people. You are independent, and although you’re attached to family and loved ones, you need to feel as if you are free in order to function at your best. You are creative and very clever, sometimes in a self-serving way, and have a youthful quality that remains with you throughout life. You need to avoid expecting inhuman things of humans! Many of you have a great fondness for history and research. Famous people born today: Nathaniel Hawthorne, Ann Landers, Abigail Van Buren, Eva Marie Saint, Neil Simon, Bill Withers.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The New Moon in your Solar Return chart suggests that you will instinctively begin a new phase of your life this year. A decisively new direction has come about in your life. This can be an emotionally stimulating time in which you feel the urge to initiate and project, even if you are not quite clear about what you are projecting. Much of the energy in your life can have a magical quality to it as things are just automatically going in a certain direction. It is important to be intuitive at this time and allow the natural course to show you the way to the next step. Surprises (mostly very pleasant) pepper your year. New beginnings are in order, and you are bound to feel some level of excitement as the year unfolds.
This can be a year in which you experience important turning points, or you could begin new projects or goals that have a long-term impact on your life.
This can be a busy year. Your communications are more colorful, and you have more impact with what you communicate. Your appreciation for art may deepen. You are also likely to present yourself well during this period of your life, and personal magnetism is great.
Neptune transits in harmony with your Sun from March 2017 onward. A higher purpose to your life is what you seek during this period, and you rely more heavily upon your intuition in order to achieve it. You could find that your intuition is subtly enhanced and that you’re often in the right place at the right time, probably because your hunches are more likely to be correct. You tune into your imaginative and artistic side. This is a good year for self-improvement programs or efforts. The need to “get away from it all” to find some peace and quiet now and again will be strong. A more sensitive – even mysterious -persona is projected this year, and this can attract pleasantly unusual circumstances (and people) into your life.
You are especially creative and expressive this year and your love life can be animated. You succeed best in fields or areas that allow you to make something beautiful, attractive, and/or entertaining. Personal magnetism is strong. You are playfully competitive and might win a major competition, if applicable. This is a good period for creative projects and joining with others in pursuing a common goal.
You are more sensitive artistically, your imagination is stirred, and you have an increased appreciation for subtleties. You are inspired and could even inspire others with your words. Some of your hunches could be prophetic. You are thinking more creatively, and express yourself with more sensitivity, compassion, and warmth.
You often have a way with words this year, and verbalizing your feelings can be enjoyable. You are able to 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. Even so, there can be distinct advantages to working in some level of solitude this year as it can be too easy to become distracted on social levels, which can impact your productivity.
You may be attracted to people with artistic inclinations or to relationships in which there is an imbalance of power or a theme of saving or helping. The more romantic or idealistic side of your nature can emerge strongly now, perhaps inspired by someone you care about or someone you meet this year.
You have a strong need for affection during this period of life, and you tend to be especially generous with those you love. Watch for overindulgence in this respect, but enjoy the good vibes as well. You can do especially well working with people you love.
There can be a stronger inclination towards togetherness and sharing. You are taking more pride in your relationships. However, there can be some struggles with trust in a relationship this year. You might also experience compulsive attractions and attachments, or attraction to complicated love relationships. The need for deeper intimacy is present, but fear of this closeness may be just as strong. This energy may instead play out on the level of finances — there can be some tension over your personal finances, and/or the need to make a large payment that necessitates changes in your spending habits. Finances may be complicated. Power struggles with money are possible.
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.
This is a period of new beginnings and fresh starts. The year ahead is strong for entertaining your more artistic or spiritual side. It is easier than usual to express your individuality in a manner that is true to you this year. Love and social matters can be up and down, but also quite magical at times. Personal appeal is excellent. New and interesting experiences are likely, but energy can fluctuate and impulsive moves should be watched for. This is a strong year for taking up interesting studies and for meeting people through learning endeavors.
2016 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.
2017 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.
