If You Were Born Today, July 17
You are versatile and are clever enough to wrap your brain around virtually anything you want to understand. You are an odd mix of progressive and traditional, as you can certainly identify injustices and root for the underdog, but you can be very stubborn in your own ways of thinking, balking at change just for the sake of change. You are extraordinarily intelligent and a very interesting conversationalist. You see things through! Famous people born today: Phyllis Diller, Art Linkletter, Donald Sutherland, David Hasselhoff, Camilla Parker Bowles, James Cagney.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The Sun in a waxing sextile to the Moon in your Solar Return chart has a fortunate influence on your year ahead. You can be especially productive this year, as in many ways you are starting fresh, but you have a rather clear vision of what you want to accomplish. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa, which helps to boost your confidence and happiness levels. You more readily accept that challenges are part of the natural cycle in life, which in turn helps you to meet them with confidence and to worry less. 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 to keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there will be less stress on both your mind and body.
You’re willing to put in the effort for a mental interest or project this year, and you can feel pleasantly dedicated to your work or ideas. You are more able to focus on what you’re doing and communicating, and more inclined to notice and consider details.
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.
Energy fluctuates this year. If you aren’t too rash or impulsive, you might be able to free yourself from restrictive circumstances. You could also have more courage than usual to do things that break the routine, and confrontations engaged in this year could clear the air and help you to move forward.
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.
Cooperation seems to work best for you this year, and your personal popularity is on the increase. Even so, in certain areas of your life, 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. There can be increased steadiness and reliability in your social life, 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. Money matters can thrive now.
2018 is a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It’s generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice – take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.
2019 will be 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.
