After a strong year for recognition and career, 2009 brings the reaping of many benefits from this increased respect for what you do. Your business income improves, and you now focus on going after your fondest hopes and wishes, not only material and career goals. 2009 is a fabulous year for networking and establishing pleasant (and, in some cases, possibly even profitable) friendships and group associations. You continue to be especially ambitious this year, and there is a little less focus on family and personal matters, although changes are likely in the home, which can include moves, repairs, and changes in the structure of the family. In the last two months of the year, some will face relationship tests and trials, but strong partnerships survive and mature. Many Aries will be forming solid new business partnerships at this time. March and April bring some backtracking in the areas of relationships, partnerships, and finances. Take this time to review these matters with an eye on improving them. However, from the last week of April and through May, romance sizzles. Wonderful opportunities to make money occur in June and the first week of July. November can bring challenges, with career and partnership goals clashing. Changing roles on the career front figures strongly this year, as you take on more authority and power. 2009 brings wonderful benefits from networking–get connected!
Some form of pleasant culmination in your professional life brings rewards and recognition for you in 2009, dear Taurus. Your intuition tends to be spot on when it comes to career matters this year. Remember that the more you trust your intuition, the more it becomes available to you. You are loving your career in 2009, and this positive attitude brings great rewards. Some interesting events that reek of synchronicity and “magic” occur on the career front. Connections that further your career goals are made and come seemingly out of the blue–at exactly the right moments! Introductions to different people and new lifestyles continue to expand your mind. Casual relationships continue to mature and become more serious this year. Towards the end of 2009, work and health matters become more serious matters. A partner is more goal-oriented and is approaching your relationship from a more practical perspective. A lover could find your changing lifestyle or friendships hard to accept this year, becoming a real issue especially in February and September. Periods of pronounced intimacy occur in May, July, and December, but can also bring wonderful career opportunities. The Saturn-Pluto square in mid-November is most likely to bring work challenges, but could also represent a taxing period for a partner. Passion peaks and romance fairly sizzles from June 6-July 5.
Your curiosity is well known, dear Gemini, and in 2009 you’ll have many opportunities to satisfy it. Much pleasure through higher learning, connecting with people faraway and with completely different backgrounds than yours, and a broader scope of experiences is in your stars this year. Many of you will travel, and most will enjoy new and exciting adventures. For writers and artists, this is a year in which you’re likely to get published or expand your audience. A close partner is more outgoing and adventurous. For those hoping to meet a significant other, your best bet this year is while traveling, at school, or while taking a break from the routine. Strong periods for meeting someone special out of the blue are towards the end of May, mid July, and in the last two weeks of December. Romantically speaking, this year is more serious than last, but July 12-August 15 is exciting and spontaneous for love. Your professional life continues to be unpredictable and exposes you to new people and ideas. Some of you (mostly those born June 10-18) are going through quite a rebellious phase! The important thing to remember is that you are listening more to your ego than your heart during this stage, and if you go to an extreme, you could be leaving behind things or people who mean more to you than you may know. Life’s usual knocks don’t seem to upset you this year, and a positive attitude keeps things fresh.
In 2009, your major focus is on private matters and close personal relationships, dear Cancer. Getting family and home life into order figures strongly. New levels or depths of intimacy are uncovered in 2009. Sexual opportunities are likely to abound, or your focus on one partner becomes more expansive, warm, and intimate. Some of you will be taking a casual romance to an entirely new level this year and in coming years. Money from others or from outside sources is much improved this year. Non-tangible support is also abundant–assistance from others comes easily. You could be involved in some heavy research and digging on the job. Deep personal changes are ahead for all Cancers, but particularly those born from June 21-25. Your attitude towards close relationships and partnering undergoes transformations. Depth of experience will be sought. Many of you will deepen your commitment to a significant other. Over the next few years, you will be ridding your life of superficiality in your close relationships. Lessons learned may not always be easy, but empowering in the end. Power struggles are possible in close personal relationships for many Cancers. Your relationships tend to have distinct themes revolving around personal power, jealousy, manipulation, or self-will. Your biggest enemy now is resentment, which can act to eat away your confidence and healthy state of mind. In 2009, your eyes are opened to new experiences and belief systems. Some of you (mostly those born July 11-19) are enjoying a period of unique self-expression, insightfulness, and sense of freedom. Those born July 14-19 are likely to struggle with drawing personal boundaries with a partner.
2009 is likely to be a banner year for relationships, connecting with a significant other, and work with the public, dear Leo. Some of you will form a partnership that either leads to marriage or is otherwise significant, some will enhance an existing close relationship, and most will derive much joy from their relationships with significant others. New partners met this year are likely to feel much like a breath of fresh air. Challenging relationships, or challenges in relationships, tend to be left behind. 2009 is a commitment-friendly year for you. Some of you will be taking a casual affair to a whole new level. Romance becomes a little more serious, but “fun-serious”. Many of you will fall in love, or re-commit to a current lover. You continue to buckle down with money this year. Matters are not moving quickly when it comes to personal financesin fact, there can be some struggles regarding unpredictable trends with money from outside sources or shared with a partner, which should be sorted out by October. Those born early in the sign (from July 23-27) may be required to make adjustments in their work and health routines in order to accommodate new changing circumstances. Towards the end of year, many of you will be getting serious about learning, studying hard, and changing your attitudes towards work. Many will be working on perfecting and refining skills that will be useful on the job, and some will be forced into that position. Career matters are dynamic and exciting from June 7-July 5.
In 2009, dear Virgo, Jupiter is blessing your work and health sector, and you’re bound to experience more satisfaction from your job, improved working conditions, and better health. Although work can be hectic at times, you enjoy taking care of all the details. If you have been trying to land a dream job, it’s within reach in 2009. Virgos born early in the sign (August 23-28) are enjoying more credibility this year. Intense, fateful, and deep love affairs can develop for these early Virgos, or strengthening of current love ties. Virgos born September 8-22 are experiencing big changes this year. Increased responsibilities are likely. You could be taking yourself more seriously, and feeling a lot of pressure. Your worst enemy in 2009 is the tendency to be self-critical. Keep your sense of humor! Pressures and responsibilities notwithstanding, love, romance, fun, and hobbies are at the front of your mind in 2009. While romantic relationships of a more casual nature tend to fare well this year, unstable energy is with you for more committed relationships. Many of you are feeling strong urges to break free from your routine and to express yourselves in a freer manner. Conditions and responsibilities that you have previously tolerated or even enjoyed are now seen as overwhelming and restrictive. Saturn, the taskmaster, leaves your sign in October, which may be seen as a relief for many of you. A new cycle of buckling down with personal finances then begins. Career matters are exciting and dynamic from July 12-August 15.
With Jupiter, the planet of abundance, moving through your romance and pleasure sector virtually all year, dear Libra, 2009 is bound to bring pleasure in the romance department. Social engagements abound. For singles, meeting a special person is highly likely, although it is not necessarily a person who is partnership material. You are feeling quite free from responsibilities until the end of October, making it easier for you to let your hair down and have a good time! New responsibilities, and possibly pressures, are likely to appear in the last two months of the year, particularly for those born very early in the sign (September 23-27). Very strong opportunities for starry-eyed romance occur this year with Jupiter joining Neptune three times in your romance sectorin May, July, and December. Mind you, there is also a tendency to be a little on the gullible sideyou could be believing what you want to believe rather than what is. In November, family responsibilities, changing attitudes toward domestic life and family, and possibly issues with control and dependency will surface, and many of you will be feeling pressure to organize your lives and to become more responsible. Love challenges are possible from March 6-April 17, but April 24 to May 31 is an excellent period for partnering and romance. Career ups and downs are likely. Work is more creative than usual. Finances are stable and steady, and youre finding it natural to spend wisely, and to invest more in your home and nest.
2009 brings a strong appreciation for, as well as improvement in, your home life and family, dear Scorpio. The year is bound to bring pleasure, bounty, and expansion on the domestic scene. Its a year in which you rediscover your roots and work on loving yourself from the bottom up. You are also beginning a long and rewarding process of increased learning, studying, and expanding your skills set. For those born November 11-19, pleasant excitement on a romantic level is in store. You feel a little freer in expressing your playful side. For all Scorpios, you are becoming more resolute, determined, and courageous in 2009. You are more able to free yourself from limiting personal habits. Relationships are improved as you feel stronger and more comfortable in your own skin. Those who are married or in a committed partnership shouldnt make any serious decisions while Venus is retrograde from March 6-April 17. Its a period when a partner may not be as responsive or enthusiastic. From June 6-July 5, the cosmos are stirring up your passions in a close partnership. Some Scorpios will meet a special someone during this period. Already committed Scorpios will be spicing up a current relationship. There are likely to be some tests and challenges brought to your friendships and more casual relationships in 2009, as you are weeding out all that is superficial. Friendships that survive are mature and worthy. Money is often spent on building your nest and your sense of security this year. Some of you will be working out of your home, and some will be earning money through home-related endeavors this year.
Youve been through enormous personal changes in the last few years, dear Sagittarius, and ideally you have connected with what really motivates you and makes you tick. 2009 brings pleasing social interactions, plenty of opportunities to learn and improve your skills, and a changing attitude towards money and income. While there could be a lot of backtracking, review, and rethinking in the love arena, we don’t expect any major breakups or major new beginnings either. Romance really moves ahead, however, from April 24-May 31. This is a power period for your love life. Most of you will be having a blast. Some rigidity in your career could create challenges in your home life. The urge to rebel against conditions that you have previously accepted is strong, especially for those born December 12-19. Towards the end of the year, and particularly for Sagittarians born early in the sign (from November 22-27), friendships begin to go through some tests. This clean up is only beginning and will continue for a couple of years. Its designed to weed out the superficial friendships and to strengthen those that truly matter. Financially speaking, it’s mostly smooth sailing, except for some challenges in November. Open up a “dream come true” account for yourself, as money is tied to your sector of hopes and dreams for much of the year. 2009 is a fabulous year for learning, work in communications, and networking. Plenty of opportunities arise on intellectual lines, as well as on the home front. Some of you will have your eye on a dream home, and many of you will be enjoying pleasing family connections and support.
The year begins with a real burst of energy, confidence, and power, dear Capricorn. 2009 is a time of big personal changes for many Capricorns, but particularly those born early in the sign (December 22-26). Money matters are especially strong this year. A year-long trend towards greater flow of personal income is in your forecast, but do be aware that the flow can just as easily come in and go out if you’re not careful! You are feeling more generous this year, and although you could never be called a spendthrift, you are equally inclined towards spending and saving in 2009. Increased responsibilities in your career arise towards the end of the year. While there are no shortcuts or totally lucky breaks at this time, you are likely to derive much satisfaction from your achievements that come from your hard work. The challenges on the career front that November brings likely revolve around issues of control and power. From March 6-April 11, you will have to be patient and sensitive when it comes to a lover and love relationship. Its also a period of reworking or sluggishness on the career front. A spunky period for your love life, however, occurs from June 6-July 5, when your charm is super and romance fairly sizzles. Partnered Capricorns will also be having a good timeit’s a fabulous opportunity period for scheduling a romantic getaway. Opportunities to increase your income, as well as the receiving of gifts and favors, occur often in 2009.
This is your year, dear Aquarius. You are presenting a more generous, jolly, and pleasant you in 2009 thats sure to win you positive attention. Neptune in your sign continues to add an air of intrigue and mystery to your aura, and Jupiter, now in Aquarius as well, endows you with a likable, open, and happier manner that will invariably boost your appeal. 2009 is excellent for personal popularity and influence, as well as getting personal initiatives off the ground. Nevertheless, problems arise in a partnership regarding matters of sharing, intimacy, and finances. Some of you may be dealing with arguments with a partner (or ex) over money and/or sexuality and concepts of ownership. By the end of October, challenges with debts, taxes, or shared finances lift for most of you. Its also a time when you are feeling freer on an intimate level. While money that is shared or coming from others may be challenged in 2009, income from your own personal efforts is likely to improve. In January and February, issues surrounding independence versus dependence arise that need attention. A partnership may be tested, but strong ones come out of it even stronger! July 12-August 1 is a sizzling time for romance. In 2009, your feelings, ideals, and beliefs expand, and you have a strong desire to make everyday life more magical. A positive attitude will bring positive circumstances into your life, as long as you remain realistic. Try not to take unnecessary risks or gambles. Your heart is very open this year. Protect it with realistic expectations and youll have a grand ol time!
In 2009, dear Pisces, you enjoy an increasing feeling of hope, optimism, and spiritual protection. Your intuition is heightened to possibly even uncanny levels. Struggles in your close personal relationships are likely to continue this year, but should be straightened out towards year end. In recent years, Pisces have become more independent in spirit. Pisces are known for their selflessness and acceptance, so your recent insistence on equality in your relationships has thrown a few people you know for a loop. The important people in your life will adjust and accommodate your new need for self-expression. Just try to avoid making unnecessary sweeping changes, and try to discern between rebellious behavior and fair behavior. For those born March 13-17, this is an all-new energy, although you have likely felt it in the works for some time. Partnerships continue to experience freedom versus responsibility issues, and some wont survive the tension, particularly if they are holding you back from being yourself. For others, the partnership remains but is ideally much improved, accommodating your needs much better than it did before. For those born early in the sign (February 19-23), group work and friendships are very positive, empowering, and transforming for you in 2009. You are likely taking more creative risks this year in an effort to pursue dreams that suit your deepest needs. September 29-October 14 is an excellent period for romance. Love is pleasurable and exciting at once. Another short but exciting period for love occurs from April 18-22, when many of you will be enjoying a new or renewed romance.
