The Year Ahead
Forecast for October 2018 to October 2019
If You Were Born Today, October 16:
You are gifted at communicating with charm, tact, and likeability. Your understanding of the nuances and subtleties of human nature aids in your considerable writing and acting ability. Communication is important to you, and although you can be moody in this respect (sometimes very talkative, and other times silent), you value human contact more than most. You are able to read a face or a gesture quickly. In love, you might be drawn to emotional or dramatic people. Famous people born today: Angela Lansbury, Tim Robbins, Noah Webster, Suzanne Somers, Oscar Wilde.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
Your birthday occurs around a First 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 great energy, motivation, and growth. You are more ambitious and desirous of action in the year ahead. This should be a busy, dynamic period in your life.
You benefit from a Jupiter transit to your sign this year, and this can help lift your spirits and increase your confidence. This transit can bring distinct opportunities into your life. Optimism and confidence are with you, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve this year. You are more sociable and might meet especially helpful people during this period. Travel opportunities are more likely. Your broader perspective on matters this year keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses and strains.
From April forward, Pluto transits square your Sun this year and redefines your value system and life attitudes as well as generates intense energy in your life. You are likely to experience events that highlight the need to trust. 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. 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. It’s a powerful time for making lifestyle changes.
An influence on your Solar Return chart this year helps ground your thinking and 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 — you’re laying down the groundwork for future successes! Even so, there are times when your mind is working at top speed and perhaps ahead of itself. You find it easier to assert your desires and opinions. However, there can be times when you’re too hasty or impatient. You might often get frustrated if the results of your actions are not instant, but it’s best to cultivate some patience when it comes to realizing your goals.
This is a year in which you seek out nourishment and naturally nurture and support others. Needs and cravings are in strong focus, and you’re drawn to those things you feel are more wholesome, healthy, and natural. This can be a year in which you make significant lifestyle improvements and/or positive changes to your home and family life.
You’re also quite driven to make improvements and effect positive change in the year ahead. This impacts many areas of your life beyond the personal, including relationships and work.
Venus harmonizes with Neptune around the time of your birthday this year, and you are more imaginative and attuned to the world of beauty and romance in the year ahead. Gentleness with others is the best way to harness this energy and to attract what you want into your life. There could be truly “magical” times on a romantic and social level. You are especially romantic this year, and you are likely to idealize and expand a relationship through sensitive interactions and a more giving approach. Benefits come through paying attention to your dreams and intuitions, as well as through creativity. Mind you, Venus also squares Mars, and while some relationships are gentle and inspiring, others (or a key one) can be competitive or temperamental.
This is a year of initiative and energy. The period ahead is likely to be a strong time for getting your life back on track and taking care of loose ends, although there can be times when it seems slow-moving as a result. Some relationships (or a key one) can work quite well, while others can be up and down. Your creative and love urges are powerful indeed! Focusing will be the key to success. You are taking on new responsibilities, but generally, you enjoy the challenges.
2018 is a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice - Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.
2019 will be a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is less active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract both things and people. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice - be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect.
