Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The Moon is in its Balsamic phase in your Solar Return chart, marking this year the end of an important cycle, or stage of growth, in your life. You take more “down time” than normal, and this is natural, even good for you. This is a year when you are likely closing important projects or “chapters” in your life. You may be itching to do something new, but you are perhaps unsure about what that “something” is! The year, in a general sense, is best used as a meditative time for inner searching. It is a time for letting go of the past in order to prepare for the new. Although the new is still totally unrecognizable, it is important to allow the necessary surrender to the unknown.
You are expressing yourself more clearly this year, and you could find yourself in the position to guide, teach, or instruct others. There can be a pronounced ability to order your thoughts and ideas and to recognize patterns. This can be a mentally busy year, and at times a little hectic. It will be important to avoid allowing busy-ness to cross over into worrying and nervousness.
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. There may be a problem with overshooting this year with Mars-Jupiter strong in your Solar Return chart.
You can have considerable influence on others both professionally and personally. You might find yourself in the role of leader or advisor.
With Venus in tense aspect to Saturn in your Solar Return, getting serious about love or money (or both) will be a theme this year. Money may be tight, or the need to buckle down with your finances may be necessary. 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.
Even so, connections you make this year can be strengthening, growth-oriented ones. A Venus-Node aspect in your Solar Return chart helps to boost your ability to smooth over differences with others, and can also mean that you meet people just when you need them.
Your ambition is stimulated with a pleasing Mars-Pluto aspect in your Solar Return chart. You are determined to meet or exceed your goals this year. You benefit from being more decisive than usual, and your ability to concentrate and focus helps 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. It’s an excellent year in which to make a lifestyle change, as your ability to concentrate on what really matters to you is enhanced.
This year can point to the need to make fundamental changes in order to begin anew. Love, finances, and social matters can require some restructuring this year. There may be the need to buckle down with finances in the period ahead. New ways or channels of communicating can open doors for you, but you might want to watch for controversy or rash moves. This is a good year in which to advance your goals and to quit bad habits. Priorities become clear.
2015 is 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.
2016 will be a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time, when it is easy to enjoy life and other people. Focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure. It is likely to be a rather lighthearted year, when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a good year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out, but avoid scattering your energies.
