Your Birthday Year Forecast:
When a Quarter Moon occurs in your Return chart, as it does this year, you are at some sort of a turning point in your life, in terms of personal growth. Events that occur this year act as catalysts that get you in touch with some important issues in your emotional life. Your emotions run high, and mood swings or identity crises are possible. There may be some kind of conflict in your life arising from a great urge to do something different. The year ahead promises to be a busy, dynamic, and significant period in your life.
With Saturn transiting conjunct your Sun from December 2011 until September 2012, new responsibilities are likely to present themselves this year, or you are required to take your current responsibilities more seriously. Although Saturn's influence is traditionally considered restrictive, it does not have to be a depressing influence by all means. Some people react in such a way, but others benefit greatly from the realism that now enters their lives. The kind of progress you make now may not seem significant for the time being, but you will look back on this period of your life as one in which you truly made REAL progress towards your goals. You may be recognized or rewarded in some way for the efforts you put forth. Because you project a more responsible and credible "you", people in authority tend to be more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work. Practical matters come into strong focus and demand attention. You are likely to cut out some of the frivolous things in your life this year.
Watch for too much involvement with others' problems and too little attention to your own in the process this year.
Work is solid this year, and you can see results from your efforts, or at least foresee success down the road. 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, with modest ambitions and the appreciation of slow but steady progress.
You may be actively involved with teamwork and collaboration with others this year. Your passions are stirred, and you generally find it straightforward to form positive connections with others.
Your affections are strongly stimulated this year, and you are more acutely aware of your powers of attraction. Romance, love, and sexuality occupy your mind more than usual. You can enjoy an increase in personal magnetism (as well as libido), but be wary of competitiveness or tension in existing love relationships, as your passions are ignited in general, whether they're feelings of love or anger!
This can be a "nose to the grindstone" year - you are likely to work hard and get yourself organized. You are certainly maturing in the period ahead, no matter your age, as you learn to accept your responsibilities and draw upon your own resources. A step by step approach to your life is most appropriate this year - avoid taking on too much at once. Romance is up and down but stimulating as well.
2012 will be a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It's generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice - take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.
