The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2014 to August 2015
You can be extremely persuasive and charming. However, although you do use your charm to your advantage, there is a point when your big heart and strong morals keep you from taking advantage of others. You have a strong presence and magnetism – qualities that help you immensely towards achievement and success. Security is important to you, and you will work hard to make sure your life is as stable as possible. While you can have a lot of things going on at once, you at your best when you stay organized and when you develop routines and schedules. While you are romantically inclined, you may have your fair share of challenges in love. Luckily, you grow and learn from early mistakes. You are intuitively drawn to loyal, stable partners because of a strong need for security in love. You seek balance in your personal relationships, and you are not afraid to work hard to achieve it. The practical aspects of partnership are important to you, as you intuitively know that although love is important, relationships also need to work in the real world in order to thrive.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The Sun in harmonious aspect to the Moon in your Solar Return chart is a pleasant aspect, suggesting that your domestic and career needs are not in competition with one another this year. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa. You are likely to be on top of your game this year for the most part, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. A comfortable level of personal popularity helps keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there will be less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!
You can be highly creative and original this year. You are especially dynamic and might often experience bursts of energy. Activities that require fast reflexes or spontaneity can thrive. You are bolder and more courageous. You are naturally competitive, but not in an aggressive or antagonistic manner. In fact, you are easy to smile in this period of life, and you more readily drum up enthusiasm than you do opposition.
Watch for competitiveness or tension in your social life, as your passions are ignited this year, whether your feelings are of love or anger. Your personal magnetism increases, but you can experience some poor timing in your relationships at times this year. However, with Venus sextile the Moon’s North Node in your Solar Return chart, you are very likely to attract loving relationships and/or new warm social contacts into your life. Efforts to smooth over challenges in partnerships are likely to succeed. You can also find it far easier this year to find people who share common interests and concerns, and this can be the source of much pleasure this year.
Your social life is certainly more active this year, but you are also tuned in to working towards practical goals. This is a time when dedication and commitment to goals runs high. You derive special satisfaction from a job well done. This is an excellent time to cultivate patience.
With Mars conjunct Saturn in your Solar Return chart, you are more determined and hard-working than usual. This is an excellent time to get organized and to stick 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. What you accomplish now will benefit you for years to come.
However, Neptune is in challenging transit to your Sun beginning in March 2015, and there can be events or circumstances that have you questioning your life path, or that leave you feeling as if you no longer have an anchor. Some confusion about where you are headed in life is quite likely. It can be a time of soul-searching and finding yourself. During this time, you may be unsure where to direct your willpower. You could be undergoing confusion about what you want from life, where you are headed, and how to go about satisfying your ego. There is a reason behind this “identity crisis”–you are learning to let go of ego attachments. Your self-image is being re-worked, and you are becoming more sensitive to a greater, perhaps more spiritual, sense of purpose.
This is a strong year for focus and commitment, although circumstances may be such that you begin to question your current path from mid-year forward. Ups and downs are possible in your social life, but ultimately it’s pleasurable and growth-oriented. You can be especially creative this year, and others tend to be attracted strongly to your more unique traits.
