July 8 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: July 8
The Year Ahead
Forecast for July 2007 to July 2008
The Sun trines Uranus in your Solar Return chart, bringing exciting (not jarring) changes and new interests. Its easier than ever to express your unique individuality, and if this involves changing careers or jobs, a new love affair, or an entirely new hobby, it’s something that takes you forward into unexplored territory. You are more willing to adapt to new circumstances, ideas, and unfamiliar situations this year. It’s a good time to join organizations and groups and to attend meetings or social events. You are able to find creative solutions to problems now. Flexibility is the key to success under this influence. Your personality is sparkling this year, which is sure to attract new circumstances and people into your life.
The Sun also forms creative aspects to Jupiter and Neptune, and you may especially enjoy experiencing different cultures and ethnic styles this year. It is good for you to travel or at least expand your horizons by making new friends this year. You can be successful in the entertainment industry or in any field that requires a lot of imagination and vision. You take on a dreamy and philosophical outlook, which opens up your heart to new experiences.
Venus conjuncts Saturn and opposes Neptune around the time of your birthday this year. Uncertainty in Venus-ruled areas of life (romance, social life, and finances) is the theme, but this does not necessarily point to financial or romantic losses, by all means. It might point to, for example, a variable income that goes with the territory of self-employment, or a relationship that isn’t quite as settled as you’d like it to be yet. Saturn asks you to be responsible, hard working, dutiful, and serious when it comes to finances and/or romantic relationships. Neptune, on the other hand, places a veil over your eyes, and seduces you into believing what you want to believe rather than what really is. 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). You are learning a valuable spiritual lesson that will help you to put your priorities in better perspective. This lesson may come in mysterious ways. Spiritual, artistic, or musical endeavors can provide a welcome relief. Disappointments or disillusionments can lead to a stronger sense of reality and purpose. The final outcome ideally will be a more serious and responsible attitude toward your finances, romantic, or social relationships. A romance may be solidified or an attachment to an older or more mature partner could be part of the picture.
Some relief from the above conflict comes from a trine between Venus and Pluto. Romantic relationships and attractions have a fated quality to them this year. This could be a year in which you fall in love, and this could be with a person, an activity, or a cause! Meeting someone who transforms your life, and more specifically your values and attitude towards love, is possible under this influence. Strong existing relationships are likely to grow and transform in rewarding ways, as you are more open than usual to intensity and passion. Your finances could also improve dramatically this year as long as you employ strategy.
With Mars sextile the Moon’s North Node, you may be actively involved with teamwork and collaboration with others this year. This can also indicate an increased need for sexual union, as it stirs the passions and generally indicates ease in satisfying one’s desires through positive connections with others. This aspect is one indication of getting engaged, married, the beginning of a significant new relationship, or the intensification of an existing romance.
A lighter, freer expression is with you in the year ahead. It’s natural for you to express your more unique qualities, and for others to receive them well. New adventures are in store. Your romantic and/or social life may be complicated at times but ultimately very rewarding. Although you may be forced into accepting some realities, the end result is a stronger sense of self-worth and commitment. Relationship challenges become apparent, and you have the tools to iron out differences.
2007 is a Number Six year for you. Ruled by Venus. This is a year of relative contentment. It is a time when love is the easiest to attract, and partnerships formed under this vibration have a better chance for longevity. You are able to attract others, and material things as well, this year. This is a good year for establishing harmony in the family and in the home. Advice – develop existing relationships, be positive and receptive because these kinds of energies help you to attract what you desire.
2008 will be 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.
