Happy birthday to me!

Sunday, July 29, 2007
Wanting to know the why behind something just leads to more questions, but this just stimulates your intellectual appetite even more. You won't necessarily get your knowledge the traditional way right now, either.

People power. To feel your best today, spend more time socializing with others. Attending a party would fit the bill perfectly! But, that's not the only solution. You can also go to any crowded public place where you can mingle with lots of people. Great day to go to a popular restaurant, movie theater or store.

You may have some uncertainty about plans to have fun. On the job, you should take one thing at a time. Impatience could block progress. Communications that were unclear suddenly make more sense.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (July 29). Though you concentrate on improving one area of your life, you're expanding in all directions this year. A bold business decision in August kicks off a wave of financial luck. Your free and easy attitude in September ensures there'll be many fun trips, dates and projects. Loving commitments are made in October. Libra and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 5, 38, 21 and 50.

Happy Birthday, Leo! Inventive, strong, and controversial, you stand apart from the crowd. Although you have plenty of friends and admirers, your unique mind and talent make you a maverick. No matter how friendly and amiable you can be, you’re a tough-minded competitor, determined to win. You never forget the lessons learned on your way to the top - or the people who helped or hindered you. You have a gift for mimicking others, and may have an excellent speaking voice. But your body speaks volumes too. Never wanting to feel vulnerable, weak, or discounted, you take special pains to strengthen, enlarge, or otherwise make a statement via your physique. You overcome more than you care to discuss, especially during your early years. Every lesson contributes to your business savvy, people skills and insight into human nature. You may cope with anxieties, phobias or nightmares, but may delay getting help. You dislike feeling weak or defective in any way and may set impossibly high standards for yourself. Because you need to feel prepared and in control, anxieties and phobias may be particularly difficult for you to reconcile. Pragmatic and strong-willed, you are more likely to be swayed by physical proof than mere talk. If you can see, hear, touch and smell something, it’s real as far as you’re concerned. You do respond favorably to certain evocative fragrances and may benefit from soothing, sensual aromatherapy. You need to be loved, adored, and admired. Some of you find emotional sustenance in sports or entertainment occupations. Others may become captains of industry. It’s important that you have a positive, healthy outlet for your enormous stores of ambition, creativity and energy. Born today are Hillary Swank, Simon Baker, Vivica A.

McCormick, Sid Kroft, Paul Anka and Eleanor Smeal.

Any bright ideas you get today concerning something new you could do to your home or abode would serve like a breath of fresh air flowing in on your surroundings. Follow up on them. Although you may be placing greater emphasis than usual on your material interest today, it will be a good thing. This focus could produce impressive results.

And then this long-ass one from Cafeastrology.com:
A Full Moon in your Solar Return chart marks this as a year of great personal significance, when major new beginnings, endings, and activities occur. This period is the culmination of a stage of personal growth and development. Events at this time may bring to a head various developments in your emotional, psychological, or spiritual life over the past several years. There can be increased activity in your professional and public life, causing a conflict with your domestic and personal goals. There is little moderation in your life this year. Connections are made or ended; or your job focus may change as one focus fades to make way for a new direction. The year ahead is certain to be a very busy, dynamic, and significant period in your life.

The Sun is trine Jupiter near the time of your birthday, suggesting that you are more aware of moral issues, and have a stronger than usual desire to improve and learn this year. This is a fortunate aspect that implies optimism and confidence are with you, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve this year. Your social life will likely increase and bring you in contact with more influential, powerful, or simply happy and helpful people. Travel opportunities are likely. It is not uncommon to marry, have children, graduate college, increase income, do freelance work, get a promotion, publish a book, or receive public recognition under this influence. Matters related to universities, higher education, organized religion, publishing, legal affairs, and foreign interests proceed smoothly. This is an excellent year in which to seek advanced training or to further your education. Sun/Jupiter aspects often correlate with ceremonies that formally acknowledge past achievements. You are likely to enjoy good humor, optimism, and a larger perspective on matters that keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses and strains. With the Sun also in creative aspect to Mars, your desire nature is strong, and increased physical activity, including sexual activity, is likely. Independent work is favored. Competitive activities may also thrive this year.

Mars squares Neptune and Saturn at the time of your birthday this year, however, presenting a challenge for you in the year ahead. Saturn and Neptune's influences are contradictory. While a part of you is attempting to see things for what they are, another part is hanging onto dreams and ideals. Some disillusionments and reality shifts are bound to be a part of your life this year. Your energy levels are likely to be quite variable this year--waxing and waning in a moody fashion. You may find that is too easy to waste your time and energy, perhaps due to occasional periods when you seem to lack drive and direction. You may also experience passive-aggressiveness in others, which impacts your life in frustrating ways, or you could find relationships with others confusing and hard to define. Although you may enjoy an increase in your intuitive capabilities, you can also be too open to influence so that fears or delusions impact your ability to see your life clearly. This could also be a year when you struggle to be creative yet also reliable and organized.

Mercury trine Uranus suggests that there may be unexpected and pleasant news this year that enhances your life. You are able to find new insight into old problems, and your thinking processes during this period are likely to be especially original. This is a good year for projects involving technology or New Age topics. You may find more opportunities to attend meetings and other organized group activities, to communicate online, and to take part in activities involving computers, scientific projects, or metaphysics. Unexpected gains may be realized through such mediums. Your intuition is strong, and insights seem to come from "out of the blue". Original, creative ideas are easy to come by this year, and you communicate with a special flair.

Jupiter in creative aspect to Neptune suggests that making connections with others from a different background is likely to figure in the year ahead. Widening your mind through unusual or different experiences can be part of the picture. Generosity and compassion increases, and your faith is boosted. You more easily make personal sacrifices for what you believe to be the better good.

The year ahead is strong for learning and expanding your horizons. You are generally less affected by everyday stresses than usual, able to put things into perspective easily. You are more quick-witted than usual and brimming with ideas. Avoiding the tendency towards "pie in the sky" thinking and rebelliousness will be necessary in order to keep grounded. Impractical ventures may hold a strong lure for you, and it is best to avoid jumping into new endeavors without thinking things over first.
