Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The New Moon in your Solar Return chart suggests that you will instinctively begin a new phase of your life this year. A decisively new direction has come about in your life. This can be an emotionally stimulating time in which you feel the urge to initiate and project, even if you are not quite clear about what you are projecting. Much of the energy in your life can have a magical quality to it as things are just automatically going in a certain direction. It is important to be intuitive at this time and allow the natural course to show you the way to the next step. Surprises (mostly very pleasant) pepper your year. New beginnings are in order, and you are bound to feel some level of excitement as the year unfolds.
This can be a year in which you are building faith and confidence in your personality, skills, and talents. You can experience a stronger desire to seek out meaning, wisdom, and mental stimulation in your life during this period. Others might frequently turn to you for guidance.
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.
Uncertainty in Venus-ruled areas of life (romance, social life, and finances) can be a theme. This can play out in a variety of ways, such as having a variable income, or a relationship that is not yet settled or becoming difficult to define. This is due to Venus in your Solar Return chart in difficult aspect to both Saturn and Neptune. Saturn asks you to be responsible, hard working, dutiful, and serious when it comes to finances and/or romantic relationships. Neptune, on the other hand, places a veil over your eyes, and seduces you into believing what you want to believe rather than what really is. You need to assess areas of your life that have become dysfunctional and, in the process, you may need to sacrifice a material benefit for a spiritual good (or vice versa). You are learning valuable life lessons that will help you put your priorities into better perspective. Disappointments or disillusionments can lead to a stronger sense of reality and purpose. The final outcome ideally will be a more balanced approach towards your finances, romantic, or social relationships. A romance may be solidified or an attachment to an older or more mature partner could be part of the picture.
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 a new beginning or a new “chapter” in your life story. 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. Also watch for money and energy drains. This is a good year in which to advance your goals and to quit bad habits. Priorities become clear.
2015 is 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.
2016 will be a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to deal with practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Positive new relationships are generally not formed in a Four personal year. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
