If You Were Born Today, August 30
You are an extremely generous person who will bend over backward to help out a friend or loved one. You are that especially thoughtful person who remembers the “little things” about others. You are also very perceptive and people-aware. A humanitarian, you are sentimental without being sappy. At times, you may have a tendency to micro-manage your family and loved ones, as you seem to worry a lot about your future and your loved ones’ happiness. You may need to be careful with this so that others don’t perceive you as controlling or critical. Moodiness can be a problem for you at times. Learning to detach yourself and take a step back from situations will help you to better succeed in life. Your finances tend to fluctuate more than most. You are attracted to talented and successful people. You may have to deal with restlessness and changeability in your partnerships. Many of you go through many ups and downs in love.

Your Birthday Year Forecast
With the Sun and Moon in harmony in your Solar Return chart, the year ahead should be satisfying and balanced overall. You are in comfortable demand and personally popular, and you are able to achieve a decent balance between work and play; personal and professional life. For the most part, you are on top of your game this year, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there is less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!
Until December, you continue to benefit from a transiting Saturn trine to your Sun which was with you last year as well and is an especially grounding influence. This gives you a sense of responsibility and a feeling of directedness and purposefulness. Traditional methods work, and thoroughness brings rewards. Practice or refining a technique is favored this year. The approach that seems to work best with this aspect is a step-by-step one and the appreciation of slow but steady progress. Stabilizing elements in your life are appreciated.
This is a time when you feel confident and supported enough to pursue your desires. It’s a good time to take steps towards making yourself feel more secure and safe, and for family or domestic activities. This is also a period when you more readily support or defend your loved ones, and they do the same!
Energy fluctuates this year, however. 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.
You might also watch for a tendency to overstate and to neglect important details when making plans. You may have so very many ideas that you end up implementing none if you’re not careful! You are likely to have increased opportunities for travel and/or new learning experiences.
Intensity can characterize your personal relationships and romantic attachments. Passions, feelings of jealousy, and possessiveness run high. You may deal with these emotions in yourself, but you may also need to handle the jealousies and possessiveness of a partner. You might also experience compulsive attractions and attachments, or attraction to complicated love relationships. As well, you may have some tension over your personal finances, and/or need to make a large payment that necessitates changes in your spending habits. Finances may be complicated, such as power struggles with money. You are also very determined to make changes which can be good for you in the long run.
Even so, you’re likely to strengthen and solidify another key relationship. Renewed ties to old friends are possible, or a new sense of responsibility in existing friendships, are also highly likely.
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.
Fortunately, transiting Uranus harmonizes with your Sun from June 2019 forward. Your personality is sparkling during this period, which is sure to attract new circumstances and people into your life. Exciting (not jarring) changes and new interests characterize the period ahead. It’s easier than ever to express your unique individuality, and if this involves changing careers or jobs, a new love affair, or an entirely new hobby, it’s something that takes you forward into unexplored territory. You are more willing to adapt to new circumstances, ideas, and unfamiliar situations. It’s a good time to join organizations and groups and to attend meetings or social events. You can find creative solutions to problems now. Flexibility is the key to success under this influence.
It is easier than ever to express your individuality in a manner that is true to you in the year ahead. 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. Be mindful when/if making sweeping changes. Some relationships (or a key one) can be turbulent, while another strengthens. Special care with finances is wise this year. Teaching and learning can be in strong focus.
2018 is 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.
2019 will be a Number Five year for you. Ruled by Mercury. This is a year of discovery and freedom. It’s a time when exploration and reaching out to others brings opportunities. It’s a good time to advertise, promote, and sell. Surprises are in store, and the routine is broken for the better. This is a year when exciting relationships can be formed; or, if you are already in a partnership, new life is breathed into the relationship. Advice – explore, look for adventure, keep your eyes open for opportunities, diversify, mingle.
