April 8 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: April 8
The Year Ahead
Forecast for April 2007 to April 2008
The year ahead is bound to be a strong, stable, and steady one for you. Fortunately, a grand trine between your Sun and Jupiter and Saturn is formed around the time of your birthday this year, suggesting a period of constructive accomplishment ahead. You are practical, realistic, and your judgment is especially sound when it comes to your overall life objectives. At the same time, you actually derive much satisfaction from practical accomplishment. The key to harnessing this wonderful energy is to identify and find pleasure in the simple things that make you happy.
In addition, the Sun trines the Moon in your Solar Return chart this year (as it did last year), suggesting that domestic and career needs don’t compete with one another this year. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa. This aspect is very powerful and rewarding. It suggests that you will be on top of your game this year for the most part, and positive connections with others can be made rather easily. A comfortable level of personal popularity helps to keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there will be less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you.
Work you have done in the past begins to pay off this year–not necessarily in dramatic ways, but in small, measurable ways. You may be recognized or rewarded for the efforts you put forth. Because you project a more responsible and credible you, people in authority are more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work. This is a year in which you put your life in order in some significant manner. Improved concentration, a more realistic outlook, and a practical awareness of the limits of time all help you to make steady progress, particularly in your career. Your concern for your future this year is stronger than usual, and you may find that projects you start, or investments you make, will benefit you for years to come. Problems are easier to resolve this year. Your social life will likely increase and bring you into contact with more influential, powerful, or simply happy and helpful people. Travel opportunities are likely. It is not uncommon to marry, have children, graduate college, increase income, do freelance work, get a promotion, publish a book, or receive public recognition under this influence. Matters related to universities, higher education, organized religion, publishing, legal affairs, and foreign interests proceed smoothly. This is an excellent year in which to seek advanced training or to further your education. Business trips could figure strongly.
Mercury, the planet of communication, squares Pluto in your Solar Return chart, suggesting that you are hungry for deeper meaning to your life, but a suspicious attitude, or making mountains out of molehills wont serve you well. Some secretiveness is possible. At times, you may have a troubled mind and some mental anxiety. On the other hand, it can suggest the ability to engage in deep, penetrating communication this year. Mercury governs speech, and you will need to watch what and how you communicate. Something you write or say could lead to opposition from others. Your need to investigate and read between the lines is strong this year. Its best used for research and increased awareness of psychological motivations, both of others and yourself. Mercury sextiles Venus, adding charm to your style of communication.
With Venus square to Neptune, some caution with your personal finances and regarding your social relationships is in order. Most importantly, 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. Uncertainty may characterize your love relationships this year. Be careful not to set yourself up for disappointment. The same goes for finances! However, this aspect is quite weak in your chart, and thus is likely to be a minor influence in your life.
Mars sextiles Pluto and quintiles Jupiter around the time of your birthday this year, stimulating your ambition in a pleasant manner. You are determined to meet or exceed your goals. You are more able to act decisively this year, and business success is forthcoming as a result. Opportunities for travel are likely to present themselves. Some people may get married or have a child under this influence. Athletes may enjoy strong results in competition.
Overall, the year ahead is likely to be a productive and rewarding one. You are able to find pleasure in taking care of practical matters. It’s a strong year for getting organized, working on a pet project, or launching a new one. Travel that combines work and pleasure is likely. Improved concentration, a more realistic outlook, and a practical awareness of the limits of time all help you to make steady progress, particularly in your career.
2007 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.
2008 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.
