July 5 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: July 5
The Year Ahead
Forecast for July 2008 to July 2009
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.
Mars trines Pluto and conjuncts Saturn in your Solar Return chart. You might find that you become more goal-oriented this year, as superficial goals no longer satisfy you. You want your objectives to reflect what youre really about, and you are likely to rid yourself of unsatisfying goals this year. You benefit from being more decisive than usual, and your ability to concentrate and focus helps you to achieve what you set out to do. A new project or goal begun this year has a good chance of being successful and long-lasting. Your sexual and physical activities tend to be more intense, passionate, and focused. Its an excellent year in which to make a lifestyle change, as your ability to concentrate on what really matters to you is enhanced. It’s also a strong year for getting organized and sticking with projects through to the end. When you face obstacles to your goals, which is a likely scenario this year, you are likely to just keep on pushing. Progress may be slow, but it’s steady and solid.
The Sun opposes Jupiter around the time of your birthday this year, and you may 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.
Mercury trine the Moon’s North Node suggests making contact through learning, communicating, and mental pursuits. It suggests an intellectually stimulating year in which the exchange of ideas with others figures prominently.
With Venus opposing Jupiter, your love nature is strong, but given to extremes at times! Over-inflated expectations is something to watch out for. You may overvalue something (or someone), perhaps in an attempt to dramatize your life. You often feel quite sociable, in the mood to party, dramatic, extravagant, and inclined to overindulge as a result of a feeling of inner discontent and a desire for more from life than daily routines. Venus is also trine Uranus, bringing spontaneity into your personal relationships. This is a favorable influence for social meetings and events, and for situations that call for treating others with equality and respect. You may lose your fear of taking risks this year on a social level, and happily embrace all that is new, unusual, and out-of-the-ordinary with regards to romantic involvements as well as financial undertakings. You are ready to experiment, and not necessarily ready to commit. This could be a good year for financial undertakings involving electronics, technology, the internet, metaphysics, and the arts, as well as group activities. You have a taste for the offbeat this year, and this energy can bring sudden or unexpected romance into your life, perhaps a scenario that feels like love at first sight. Childbirth is sometimes associated with this aspect.
Your mind is working at top speed this year. This means you can get a whole lot done, but it also suggests that you may not be paying attention to important details. Your senses are stimulated, and you could have sudden flashes of insight or fresh new ideas. You may be a little scatter-brained under this influence, and you could find it challenging to deal with routine matters or monotonous tasks. Learning new things is your passion this year–not recycling old ideas or performing repetitive processes. You are more sensitive artistically, your imagination is stirred, and you have an increased appreciation for subtleties. Some of your hunches could be prophetic. You are thinking more creatively, and express yourself with more sensitivity, compassion, and warmth.
New beginnings are in store for you in the year ahead. Intensity characterizes many of your pursuits this year as you focus on what matters most to you and weed out frivolous endeavors. New contacts on an intellectual level are made. Your social life picks up speed this year, as you lose your fear of taking risks in your personal life.
2008 is a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to deal with practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Positive new relationships are not as frequently formed in a Four personal year than they are in other years. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
2009 will be 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.
