The Year Ahead
Forecast for July 2014 to July 2015
If You Were Born Today, July 23:
You are a very curious person, and your mental restlessness can attract a colorful life. Even if you don’t move around physically or travel, you are always looking for new adventures of the mind. You are friendly, likeable, and you need mental stimulation. Others tend to love your personal “take” on things, and they do enjoy your company. You may need to develop follow-through. You are attracted to unusual people and those who might bring a certain level of intensity or drama into your life.Famous people born today: Woody Harrelson, Slash, Daniel Radcliffe, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Wesley, Charisma Carpenter.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
While there are some indications of impulsiveness and hasty reactions in your Solar Return chart this year, helping you along is a harmonious transit of Saturn to your Sun starting in December. This suggests benefits from keeping your feet on the ground and paying attention to, and honoring, tradition as well as tried-and-true methods. Work you have done in the past begins to pay off this year—not necessarily in dramatic ways, but in small, measurable ways. You may be recognized or rewarded in some way for the efforts you put forth. When you project a more responsible and credible “you”, people in authority are more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work. This is a year in which you put your life in order in some significant manner. The key to success this year is adopting a realistic, practical, disciplined, and orderly approach to your life. Having a strong sense for both tradition and innovation opens doors for you.
This is a good year for humanitarian efforts, for presenting your ideas, learning, and for asking for favors. Popularity can increase considerably. In business, you tend to be a bit of a visionary this year, making it a good time to come up with creative and imaginative plans, and also for presenting your ideas to others. However, watch closely for half-truths and putting all your eggs in one basket before getting all of the facts. As well, avoid impulsive, anger-driven communications which can get you into more trouble than they’re worth.
You are more imaginative and attuned to the world of beauty and romance in the year ahead. There could be truly “magical” times on a romantic and social level. You are especially romantic this year, and you are likely to idealize and expand a relationship through sensitive interactions and a more giving approach. Benefits come through paying attention to your dreams and intuitions, as well as through creativity.
You can be extremely focused on a project, and can make much headway as a result. There is much purpose and passion in the way you direct your energies this year. You might often come to others’ defence, supporting those you love and the ideas you believe in. There is a bit of a crusader in you this year. You might often get frustrated if results of your actions are not instant, but it’s best to cultivate some patience when it comes to realizing your goals. As well, if you are not getting the results you crave, consider that you might be aiming too high or too wide. Watch that you don’t work so hard that you neglect your relationship needs.
With Mars conjunct the Moon’s North Node, you may be actively involved with teamwork and collaboration with others this year. This can also indicate a stirring of the passions and relative ease in satisfying one’s desires through positive connections with others. This aspect is one indication of getting engaged, married, the beginning of a significant new relationship, or the intensification of an existing romance.
You can be especially hard-working but sometimes too hard on yourself and possibly others as you attempt to get things right. This year, you may be challenged to let go of the past if it’s holding you back, but also to recognize when to stick to things and preserve those things that are important to your growth - a balance should be sought, as either extreme will not contribute to success. However, when possible, you may want to choose to work independently and at your own pace.
While there can be some problems controlling impulses or overshooting the mark this year, overall, you are able to bring more stability to your life. This is about getting centered and discovering what’s truly worth your time. However, there can be a project or work that you are so totally involved in that you sometimes neglect your personal life. You can enjoy increased imagination and intuition, as well as the ability to stir and inspire others with your words.
2014 is a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice - Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.
2015 will be a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is less active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract both things and people. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice - be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect.

Back to If Today is Your Birthday
I am mourning genocide in Gaza. I mourn genocide in Gaza because I am the granddaughter of a family half wiped out in a holocaust and I know genocide when I see it. People are asking why I am taking this “side.” There are no sides. I mourn all victims. But every law of war and international law is being broken in the targeting of civilians in Gaza. I stand with the people of Gaza exactly because things might have turned out differently if more people had stood with the Jews in Germany.
