July 8 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: July 8
The Year Ahead
Forecast for July 2008 to July 2009
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.
Nevertheless, the Sun opposes Jupiter around the time of your birthday this year, and you may often 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.
Venus trines 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.
Intensity characterizes many of your pursuits this year as you focus on what matters most to you and weed out frivolous endeavors. Your social life picks up speed this year, as you lose your fear of taking risks in your personal life. Sometimes, you can be tempted to go overboard and should be careful not to overextend yourself or promise more than is possible.
2008 is 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.
2009 will be 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.
