May 17 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: May 17
The Year Ahead
Forecast for May 2007 to May 2008
Your birthday this year occurs just 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 squares Pluto at the time of your birthday this year, which is an intense energy. It suggests that you have powerful, transformative energy at your disposal this year, and the results will depend on how you handle it. Channeled positively, you could move mountains when it comes to pushing your projects ahead. If mishandled, however, you could be argumentative, stressed, and hell-bent on having your way! Avoid taking extreme measures to make things happen your way, and avoid people who might be doing same. Deliberately trying to maneuver things in order to get the upper hand will be a lesson in frustration.
Mercury is in creative aspect with Mars, indicating a sharp wit. New mental pursuits and learning are favored. Expect to be involved in lectures, debates, and discussions during the year. You can convey your ideas powerfully to others, and you may be invited to speak before a group. You are quick to take the initiative and to put your thoughts into action. Adventuresome travel may figure in the year ahead. Mercury also forms hard aspects to Jupiter and Uranus, and a tendency to overstate, and to neglect important details when making plans, is strong. You may have so very many ideas that you end up implementing none! You are likely to have opportunities for travel and/or new learning experiences. Relationships with younger people may be exciting and stimulating but also rather unstable.
With Venus trine the Moon’s North Node, you are very likely to attract loving relationships and/or new warm social contacts into your life. Your popularity increases and efforts to smooth over challenges in partnerships are more likely to succeed this year. This is an excellent influence for negotiations, marriage, and business partnerships.
The desire to expand and explore is very strong this year. Freedom is what you seek, and how you deal with this issue is the key to how this influence will play out. If you recognize your need for changes in key areas of your life and adapt accordingly, this can be an exciting year of discovery. However, if you resist change and insist on keeping things status quo, you are bound to feel very restless, tense, and rebellious. Still, making healthy changes should be the focus–change for the sake of change is not what you should be concentrating on. Do your best to think before you leap. Situations in your life that seem to curtail your freedom could be hard to handle now. Spontaneity, not impulsiveness, is the key to success this year, and this can be a period of constructive accomplishment. Identify and find pleasure in the simple things that make you happy.
The year ahead is one of new beginnings. Others will notice a new mode of expression, perhaps a new style or manner, about you. You are likely to push yourself in order to go after what you want this year, and some conflict with superiors is quite possible. It is a strong year for attracting growth-oriented friendships, although relationships with younger people may be unreliable. Travel and new learning experiences are likely to figure.
2007 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. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
2008 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.
