The Year Ahead
Forecast for April 2012 to April 2013
If You Were Born Today, April 8:
You are a true pioneer with exceptionally strong business sense. You have little patience for slacking off and slowness. Quick-minded and generally thorough, you are also very independent, rarely asking for help. This trait can lead you to feel lonely at times. However, you are quick to help others if they sincerely need a hand. Famous people born today: Mary Pickford, Betty Ford, Julian Lennon, Patricia Arquette.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
Your birthday falls just after a Full Moon this year, suggesting a period of communication and teaching. You may be turned to for advice more frequently, and you are very willing to offer your help. This is a strong year for publicity and any other endeavors that involve spreading the word. As well, your ability to be objective–or to see the “big picture”–can be especially rewarding this year.
You may be reviewing your affectionate relationships this year in terms of how they are helping or limiting your personal growth. Your love nature is stimulated this year and your feelings are likely to be very strong. You may not always be thinking clearly as a result. You can be very idealistic when it comes to others this year. 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.
You have a stronger focus on, and dedication to, work in the period ahead, sometimes taking it a little too far. Taking the time to pull yourself away from your pet projects or work will help bring more balance to your life, and will ensure that you don’t neglect other important areas of life. However, you can make significant headway in specific areas this year, and you are likely to feel a strong sense of direction and purpose.
You are able to tend to the details while keeping your eye on the bigger picture this year, which can benefit your greatly.
Your ambition is stimulated this year. You are determined to meet or exceed your goals. However, you need to be aware of a tendency to be attracted to impractical ventures. You may experience passive-aggressiveness in others, which impacts your life in frustrating ways, or you could find relationships with others confusing and hard to define. Although you may enjoy an increase in your intuitive capabilities, you could also be too open to influence so that fears or delusions impact your ability to see your life clearly. Take an objective look also at how your dreams and visions fit into the lives of others and the world in general. As well, your energy can vary greatly from one period to the next, so take advantage of the “high” periods in order to offset the possible loss in productivity during the low-energy stages. This could also be a year in which you are considerably more creative.
Relationships are strongly in focus in the year ahead. Energy is up and down this year, but when you’re in the zone, you can accomplish much. Stay on top of your finances and responsibilities, as there is a tendency towards some escapism that can cost you more in the long run. Intuition runs high and creativity is strong.
2012 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.
2013 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.
