Your Birthday Year Forecast:
Jupiter transits conjunct your Sun this year, bringing more awareness of moral issues and long-term goals, as well as a stronger than usual desire to improve and learn. 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. You are more sociable and might meet especially helpful people during this period. Travel opportunities are more likely now. Your broader perspective on matters this year keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses and strains.
You display more self-confidence when it comes to achieving your goals and going after what you want this year. Others are bound to recognize your leadership skills and talents, or, at the very least, your potential. You are motivated to get to the bottom of matters. You might find that you become more goal-oriented, as superficial goals no longer satisfy you. You want your life path and your objectives to reflect what you're really about, and you are likely to rid yourself of unsatisfying goals this year. You benefit from being more decisive than usual, and your ability to concentrate and focus help you to 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 year ahead is infused with enterprising spirit. Professional as well as personal opportunities are likely to arise. Your faith in your ability to produce and to win takes you places you perhaps never imagined. You are able to see the "big picture", which helps you to plan effectively. The energies of this influence favor negotiations, deals, legal matters, reasonable speculation, and travel. This aspect also favors positive outcomes in competitive activities, including sports and business, for example.
Venus squares Pluto in your Solar Return chart, and intensity characterizes your personal relationships and romantic attachments. Passions, feelings of jealousy, and possessiveness run high, and these emotions are in direct proportion to fear of losing someone. You are likely to have to deal with these emotions in yourself, but you may also need to handle the jealousies and possessiveness of a partner. Resist the temptation to try to manipulate others into following your own romantic script, and avoid those doing same. Fear of betrayal may be strong this year. You might also experience compulsive attractions and attachments, or attraction to complicated love relationships. The need for deeper intimacy is present, but fear of this closeness may be just as strong. Something tiny can trigger all sorts of buried emotions, and this can be very revealing! If you find yourself bringing up old hurts, examine the emotional "slush" you've been carrying around with you. Avoid taking it out on your partner or on yourself. Because Venus also rules finances, 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. Sometimes this influence suggests power struggles with money.
With Venus in a tense aspect to Saturn in your Solar Return, getting serious about love or money (or both) will be a theme this year. The need to buckle down with your finances may be necessary. This does not necessarily signify financial losses, but you are likely to have an increased awareness of your limits. The responsibilities of partnership are magnified this year. You are likely to be more earnest on a romantic level. An existing relationship may become more serious, or you may form a new partnership with a serious or older person. You are likely to work hard this year, and this could interfere with pleasure time. Opportunities to socialize may be reduced, and this could be the result of increased responsibilities or it could stem from your own insecurities or lack of confidence on a social level this year.
You might often seem to have to make difficult decisions in which both alternatives seem to be equally as desirable. There may often be "either-or" situations, and sacrifices might need to be made between material and spiritual gains. Indecisiveness can be a result.
You are more self-confident and self-assured this year. You are likely to feel quite elated, and freedom is especially important to you. You are interested in expanding your horizons, and opportunities for doing so are likely to present themselves. However, love relationships can be a roller coaster ride this year, and finances require adjustments.
2012 will be 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.
