The Year Ahead
Forecast for April 2015 to April 2016
If You Were Born Today, April 23:
You are extremely clever, and oftentimes mischievous – a trait that keeps you youthful in spirit throughout life! As intelligent and talented as you are, you see so many possible paths to take that it can be challenging to focus on only one. Fortunately, you are versatile enough to make more than one life path successful. You tend to attract non-traditional relationship set-ups. Famous people born today: William Shakespeare, Sandra Dee, Lee Majors, Joyce DeWitt, Valerie Bertinelli, Shirley Temple, Roy Orbison, John Hannah.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The Sun in a waxing sextile to the Moon in your Solar Return chart has a fortunate influence on your year ahead. You can be especially productive this year, as in many ways you are starting fresh, but you have a rather clear vision of what you want to accomplish. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa, which helps to boost your confidence and happiness levels. You more readily accept that challenges are part of the natural cycle in life, which in turn helps you to meet them with confidence and to worry less. You are likely to be on top of your game this year for the most part, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. A comfortable level of personal popularity helps keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there will be less stress on both your mind and body.
There may be a project, idea, or person that demands much of your attention or occupies much of your thoughts. Its a strong year for any project or studies that require concentrated effort. You are especially resourceful.
Your ability to concentrate and focus helps you to achieve what you set out to do, and your ambitions are stimulated. A new project or goal begun this year has a good chance of being successful and long-lasting. You are determined to meet or exceed your goals this year. You benefit from being more decisive than usual. 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. Temper and impatience are the things to avoid most – these will surely trip you up.
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 can be quite prolific with your work, mental interests, and projects. This should also be a quite sociable year, although it’s not always about quantity and more often about quality of your connections.
There may be a problem with overshooting this year with Mercury-Mars-Jupiter strong in your Solar Return chart. However, you may need to stretch your mind in order to see new and overlooked opportunities.
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. You should do your best to watch out for tendencies towards self-deception. Things might look too good to be true, simply because you want to see the best. Relationship ups and downs are possible, as this could be a year when romantic mirages are more likely. The “highs” of a relationship may be thrilling, but the accompanying “lows” can be draining. Be wary of any “get rich quick” schemes, and try to tame your tendency to overspend.
Even so, some connections you make this year can be strengthening, growth-oriented ones. Your open heart is likely to attract easygoing friendships or love opportunities into your life. 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. However, do try to take off the rose-colored glasses when it comes to new financial initiatives and romance. If you don’t, you could be in for some disappointment when things fail to measure up to your dreams and ideals.
This year is strong for new beginnings and interests. 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. Relationships are likely to be up and down, but some will stand out as special.
2015 is 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.
2016 will be a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice – let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.
