October 12 Birthday Horoscope 2017-2018
If Today is Your Birthday: October 12
The Year Ahead
Forecast for October 2017 to October 2018
If You Were Born Today, October 12:
You are a charming, enigmatic person with a dual personality. Sometimes extravagant, and at other times cautious, your contradictory nature often baffles others. However, overall, you possess personal charisma and others find you fascinating. You have an unusual intelligence and insight into human nature. You are not always successful in your attempts to use tact, however! Curbing your excesses is something you can spend a lifetime attempting to do, simply because although you are aware of the self-indulgent side to your nature, you are not always in control of it. Famous people born today: Luciano Pavarotti, Aleister Crowley, Hugh Jackman, Josh Hutcherson.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
Your birthday occurs around a Third Quarter Moon this year, and you are reaching an important turning point in terms of personal growth. You may be more emotional this year, and should watch for unnecessary conflicts and making hasty decisions as a result. Otherwise, this is a year of greater understanding and a strong desire to take care of business. This should be a busy, dynamic period in your life.
Pluto continues to transit square your Sun this year and continues to redefine your value system and life attitudes as well as generate intense energy in your life. You are likely to experience events that highlight the need to trust. This year, events and circumstances are such that you learn about your own personal strength. You may have to deal with willfulness and issues of power and competition this year–in others and yourself. There is an inner drama taking place this year, and a feeling that external circumstances are undermining your feeling of powerfulness. In the process, you may be able to get in touch with your internal motivations. A tendency to want to control your life through some form of manipulation is strong during this influence. Meeting with obstacles in your paths, however, can force you into the position of using all of your resources to fight back, and you can discover resources you never knew you had in the process.
You may slowly uncover a new direction in your career–one that reflects more of the “true you.” You may also experience tangles in your close personal relationships, perhaps more so with males. Watch for jealousies and manipulative behavior. Things will not go in your favor if you resort to tactics to get what you want. If you have been feeling somewhat of a victim in your relationships or job position, for example, then this will be a year when you feel it more acutely and feel the need to do something about it.
Mercury harmonizing with Saturn in your Solar Return chart certainly helps to ground your thinking and to turn your thoughts to practical considerations. Advances in intellectual and mental pursuits are likely, as you make steady progress that has long-lasting results. It’s a good year in which to get organized, to do detail work, and to prepare for the future. Work done during this period in your life will have tangible results in the future. Relationships with younger people in your life are solidified.
Pluto’s long-term transiting square to your Sun ends this year, and this can feel as if a weight is off your shoulders. Ideally, you have a stronger sense of self and of your direction or purpose.
You are especially creative and expressive this year, and you might often act on impulse. Your love life may be especially animated. You succeed best in fields or areas that allow you to make something beautiful, attractive, and/or entertaining. You are particularly dynamic at this point in your life, sometimes impatient, and you often experience bursts of energy. You are courageous, but be careful to not go to such extremes that you are foolhardy, as this inclines you to mishaps.
Personal magnetism is tremendous this year. This is a good period for creative projects and joining with others in pursuing a common goal. Any artistic or musical talent you have can make you shine brightly in the year ahead. Activities that combine action or passion with grace are favored in this period–for example, dancing, playing music, and making art or love.
Venus and Mars form a square with Saturn in your Solar Return chart, however, and this can introduce challenges in some or one particular relationship. There can be some blocks or obstacles to deal with. While you’re awakening in many ways on social or romantic levels, there are challenges to deal with on other levels.
A new project or goal begun this year has a good chance of being successful and long-lasting. Your physical activities tend to be more intense, passionate, and focused. It’s an excellent year in which to make a lifestyle change, as your ability to concentrate on what really matters to you is enhanced.
This is an excellent year in which to advance projects revolving around communications – writing, speaking, selling, and so forth. Your reputation may be enhanced through word of mouth. Making new contacts through learning and mental pursuits figures strongly as well.
Your personal appeal is extremely high this year. There can be some very fertile, creative projects in the works. You have a lot on your plate during this period. Be a little more attentive to details with finances and relationships for best results.
