If You Were Born Today, July 12:
You are a colorful, likable, and intelligent person, but you are not always well understood, probably due to a somewhat contradictory nature. You have a way with words, possess great wit, and your intuition is very strong. If lacking confidence, you tend to get into a rut; but at your best, you embrace your spontaneity. Your life path is not always easy, but with age and experience, you learn how to avoid worrying excessively about the future. Famous people born today: Henry David Thoreau, Bill Cosby, Cheryl Ladd, Milton Berle, Michelle Rodriguez, Topher Grace.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The Moon is in its Balsamic phase in your Solar Return chart, marking this year the end of an important cycle, or stage of growth, in your life. You take more downtime than usual, and this is natural, even good for you. This is a year when you are likely closing important projects or “chapters” in your life. This is an important year for reorienting yourself – discovering what you want, and identifying what you need to do in order to move forward more positively.
Pluto opposes your Sun this year, and there can be some blocks and frustrations when it comes to going after what you want during this period. Pushing too hard to get your way can backfire. 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. It’s important to avoid power games with others which can be all too easy to become a part of this year. Look for healthy ways to release frustrations.
Beautiful energy is with you in your social and/or romantic life this year. There can be a stronger tendency toward, or desire for, commitment and deep involvement in your relationships during this period. You may be taking love and/or friendship more seriously. You can be quite particular in your tastes, and better than usual with money and savings.
At the same time, you’re welcoming more spontaneity into your personal relationships, or at least some of them. You’re in excellent shape for social meetings and events as well as for situations that call for treating others with equality and respect. You are more courageous on a social level, and happily embrace the new, unusual, and out-of-the-ordinary with regards to romantic involvements as well as financial undertakings.
This could be a good year for financial endeavors involving electronics, technology, the internet, metaphysics, and the arts, as well as group activities. Circumstances may be such that you handle money more carefully this year.
You have a taste for the offbeat in the period ahead, and romance or friendship can enter your life unexpectedly, perhaps in a scenario that at least feels like love at first sight.
With certain relationships, you’re finding ways to make progressive or unconventional set-ups work, or injecting more excitement and fun into steady connections.
However, you may not always have follow-through when it comes to your projects as you may be experimenting with new ideas and hobbies. Watch for wasting too much time on new ideas if it comes at the expense of productivity. Ups and downs may lead to new commitments nevertheless.
If there are health issues this year, look for blockages or constrictions since Saturn is involved with the Node.
Idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses surface this year. Making connections with others from different backgrounds may figure strongly. Widening your mind through unusual or different experiences can be part of the picture. You more easily make personal sacrifices for what you believe to be the greater good this year.
Saturn forms an opposition to your Sun from April to December 2019. Saturn calls upon you to identify the weaker areas of your life and to fix or strengthen them. Take the time to sort out details, improve your work, and become more efficient this month. Taking a slow and steady approach to life is necessary during this period. Pushing too hard will likely lead to frustration and setbacks. Take it easy and work on self-improvement. Results are not immediate, but will eventually come and bring healthy rewards. Relationships may be (or seem) more challenging than usual while Saturn opposes your Sun. Fortunately, this is a quick pass transit, lasting only a month or so instead of the usual several months.
You’re inclined to rock the boat this year so that you can break free from a limiting situation, but be mindful when/if making sweeping changes. With work, you’re expanding your interests in satisfying ways. Do watch for a tendency to communicate impulsively and to waste too much time on projects that don’t lead to something substantial. There can be increased steadiness and reliability in your social life, however, and some relationships (or a key one) improve happily. Your social life is more satisfying and people in your life tend to back you up.
2018 is a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time when you find it natural and easy to enjoy life and other people. The focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure than you are in other years. It’s likely to be a rather lighthearted year when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a favorable year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out and connect but avoid scattering your energies.
2019 will be 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 pay special attention to 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 often not formed in a Four personal year. However, it can be a wonderful year for building, development, and laying a solid foundation for future successes. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
