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 usual, and this is natural, even good for you. This is a year when you are likely closing important projects or “chapters” in your life. This is an important year for reorienting yourself – discovering what you want, and identifying what you need to do in order to move forward more positively.
Certain relationships are strengthened this year. The period ahead is strong for getting your life on track concerning fulfilling responsibilities and goals. 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.
You are more emotionally invested in relating well with others this year, and you can be especially reasonable in your dealings. Conversations can be supportive and genuinely two-way. Negotiations are fair and clear.
Marketing and promotional activities can thrive. Business revolving around the home, nutrition, cooking, and real estate may be particularly fruitful.
You may win respect and recognition for your work or craft this year. There is a good balance between learning from tradition and seeing things progressively. Timing is strong, and you tend to make firm, favorable decisions related to work or long-term projects.
A subject or even a person can be especially inspiring, prompting you to explore new perspectives. New or improved friendships are very likely. This can be a good year for dabbling in the arts, furthering a creative hobby or craft, and exploring new artistic interests.
You are likely to have great energy for debate or mental work. It’s possible that you may be argumentative and irritable, and particularly impatient with vagueness or slowness. You may be involved in frequent lectures, debates, and discussions during the year. You can convey your ideas more powerfully. You are quick to take the initiative and to put your thoughts into action. Watch for impatience that trips you up. Consider your responses more often before communicating. Avoid pushing people and projects.
Your thought process comes alive with energy this year. Learning may be exciting, although you may not always stick to the task.
The year is strong for physical therapy and healing, as well as for having a real sense of mission. Your unique manner of expressing and asserting yourself is in focus and appreciated this year. Suppressed anger is more effectively released in creative ways. Physical healing can help inner healing, and vice versa.
Certainly, spontaneity is an essential ingredient in your personal relationships this year. You quite readily embrace all that is new, unusual, and out-of-the-ordinary with regards to romantic involvements as well as financial undertakings. You have a taste for the offbeat this year, and there can be sudden or unexpected romance in your life. Renewing old ties in a new way is another strong possibility.
You are curious and seek out mental stimulation and new interests or experiences this year. This is a strong year for enjoying exciting new ideas and for connecting with others with similar interests. New or enhanced social relationships are likely. However, you may be too quick to speak or act out at times during this period, and it would be wise to look for ways to reduce stress and slow yourself down. Friendships can improve with more communication. Old friendships might be renewed.
2016 is 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.
2017 will be a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.
