The Year Ahead
Forecast for October 2016 to October 2017
If You Were Born Today, October 17:
You have strong opinions and possess much determination. Your insight into human nature makes up part of your appeal to others. Your tendency to bang your head against the wall and to become frustrated easily is something that you outgrow and/or temper over the years. Your strong ideals and emotions, if channeled constructively, can bring you much success in your chosen profession. Communication is important to you, although your own communication style is moody. You are highly intelligent and possess the ability to “hit the nail on the head”. Although you can be blunt at times, you generally come across well to others, simply because they can sense your good intentions. Famous people born today: Pope John Paul I, Evel Knievel, Arthur Miller, Eminem, Ziggy Marley, Rita Hayworth, Montgomery Clift, George Wendt, Margot Kidder.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
Your birthday falls shortly after a Full Moon this year, suggesting a period ahead of communication and teaching. You may be turned to for advice more frequently, and you are very willing to offer your help. This is a strong year for publicity and any other endeavors that involve spreading the word. As well, your ability to be objective–or to see the “big picture”–can be especially pronounced and rewarding this year.
Transiting Saturn forms a sextile to your Sun this year, adding a nice layer of productivity and practicality to this period in your life. Responsibilities are easier to fill, and you enjoy benefits from organizing and bringing order to various areas of life. This influence helps to keep you on track. For the most part, your feet are on the ground. You are able to meet your responsibilities, and you are more willing to make important commitments. Your concern for your future is stronger than usual, and you may find that projects you start, or investments you make, this year will benefit you for years to come. Your elders or authority figures in your life tend to look upon you favorably during this period in your life. One of the major keys to success this year is adopting a realistic, practical, disciplined, and orderly approach to your life.
However, Uranus is transiting in opposition to your Sun this year, suggesting that certain areas of life are changing, and quite dramatically! Personal freedom issues become especially important to you. Others may seem to be introducing changes into your life, whether you feel ready for them or not. In truth, you are readier than you think. Changes in how you relate to others on a one-to-one level are essential to your personal growth, even if it feels a bit unstable for the time being. Something you have had to give up might now be available to you again, and you need to decide whether you still want it.
This can be an exceptionally busy year and sometimes an overstimulating one! You may wish to start many different projects but can overestimate how much time and energy you have to develop them. This can be a year in which you are building faith and confidence in your personality, skills, and talents. You can experience a stronger desire to seek out new learning experiences.
Mars is conjunct Pluto in your Solar Return chart, and your ambition is stimulated–you are determined to meet or exceed your goals. You can bring great discipline and meaning to your life this year. This is a powerful influence that helps you focus on your goals, take decisive action, and go after what you want. You won’t take “no” for an answer this year. You might totally revise an important project or area of your life, or you could be bent on getting rid of something in your life in order to move forward. The tendency to be too forceful or willful this year should probably be avoided. You should also watch for overdoing to the point of exhaustion. This can be a compulsive time when power struggles are more likely. On the other hand, it can be a time when you enjoy a strong sense of purposefulness, focus, and determination.
You are especially interested in equal, fair, and balanced relationships. There can be a stronger inclination towards togetherness and sharing. There can be more dedication and an emphasis on loyalty in your relationships. You’re also very willing to make sacrifices for love and friendship, as well as in the interests of saving up for something special and business pursuits. Work is more satisfying than usual.
The year ahead is excellent for enjoying the work you do and for pouring a lot of energy into worthwhile pursuits. You could find yourself in the role of guide or teacher. There can be some important changes made this year – it’s unlikely to be status quo. This is a strong time for solid work and practical success. Watch for stirring up unnecessary controversy and for impatience, however. Relationships that don’t support growth, changing needs, and progress may not be tolerated now.
2016 is a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice – let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.
2017 will be 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.
