If You Were Born Today, October 2
You thrive on companionship, especially the one-on-one kind. For the most part, you are quite comfortable in a supporting role, and you possess an understated charm. Although tactful and caring, you also enjoy displaying your intellect, and there are times when you might try to score intellectual points, and regret it if you’ve hurt someone else’s feelings in the process! The thing is, you accept nothing at face value, and that, combined with your perceptiveness, endows you with a very interesting and intelligent perspective that others respect. You are spiritually inclined, well-respected, and popular. Famous people born today: Mahatma Gandhi, Groucho Marx, Graham Greene, Johnny Cochrane, Kelly Ripa, Sting, Tiffany.
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!
You have a stronger focus on, and dedication to, work in the period ahead, sometimes taking it a little too far. Taking the time to pull yourself away from your pet projects or work will help bring more balance to your life, and will ensure that you don’t neglect other important areas of life. However, you can make significant headway in specific areas this year, and you are likely to feel a strong sense of direction and purpose.
You are especially creative and expressive this year, and you might often act on impulse. Your love life may be especially animated. You succeed best in fields or areas that allow you to make something beautiful, attractive, and/or entertaining. You are particularly dynamic at this point in your life, sometimes impatient, and you often experience bursts of energy. You are courageous, but be careful to not go to such extremes that you are foolhardy, as this inclines you to mishaps.
Personal magnetism is tremendous this year. This is a good period for creative projects and joining with others in pursuing a common goal.
However, err on the side of caution if offers arrive that seem too good to be true. Some confusion or possibly deception could arise in relationships this year, and you may be skipping important details without even realizing it.
Fortunate connections are likely to be made this year–connections that benefit you now and down the road and that enhance your chances of success at achieving your goals. A new relationship with someone that helps to broaden your horizons, expand your mind, and deepen your personal philosophy of life is possible, or existing relationships grow and improve.
However, your energy can vary greatly from one period to the next, so take advantage of the “high” periods in order to offset the possible loss in productivity during the low-energy stages. This may be due to wavering motivation – you may be seeking out something more meaningful which can pay with your physical energy levels.
Saturn forms a square to your Sun this year from April to December 2018. During this time period, there can be times when you feel blocked from advancing in your chosen life path, or temporarily lacking in energy and confidence. Ego boosts don’t seem to be forthcoming, or if they are, you don’t see them in such a light. Some sort of buckling down is necessary at this time and is often perceived as limitations coming from other people or from circumstances. A general feeling of “slowdown” is likely, and if regular tasks seem more overwhelming than usual, it is likely due to poor spirits and lack of motivation. Sometimes, this transit is associated with problems with the teeth, bones in general, and the skin. It is also associated with mechanical breakdowns in your life. However, Saturn calls upon you to identify the weaker areas of your life and to fix or strengthen them. Take the time to sort out your life, improve your work, and become more efficient. Taking a slow and steady approach to life is necessary now. 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. This can be a time of fixing problems or taking on responsibilities so that your life runs more smoothly.
You seek out nourishment from — and naturally nurture and support — others during this period. Needs and cravings seem to be in harmony, or at least not in conflict, with those of your loved ones. It makes you feel stronger and good about yourself to help and support, and you seem to have a good support system in place for yourself.
Helping you out is a Mars-Pluto trine that suggests you’re going all in with certain projects and endeavors. You want your objectives to reflect what you’re really about, and you are likely to rid yourself of unsatisfying goals this year. Your ability to concentrate and focus helps you achieve what you set out to do. A new project or goal begun this year has a good chance of being successful and long-lasting. Your physical activities tend to be more intense, passionate, and focused. It’s an excellent year in which to make a lifestyle change, as your ability to concentrate on what really matters to you is enhanced.
While energy can be up and down this year and there can be some obstacles to clear, the period ahead is excellent for getting key areas of your life more organized and structured. Areas that you’ve overlooked now need your attention. Family and support systems can be in good place, however, and personal appeal is strong. There can be some very fertile, creative projects in the works. Cooperation brings excellent rewards.
2017 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.
2018 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.
