Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The Sun in harmonious aspect to the Moon in your Solar Return chart is a pleasant aspect, suggesting that your domestic and career needs are not in competition with one another this year. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa. 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. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!
This is an excellent year in which to advance projects revolving around communications – writing, speaking, selling, and so forth. Your reputation may be enhanced through word of mouth. Making new contacts through learning and mental pursuits figures strongly as well.
You are able to find new insight into old problems, and your thinking processes during this period are likely to be especially original. Relationships with younger people in your life are rewarding. A subject or even a person can be especially inspiring, prompting you to explore new perspectives.
You can get some serious mental work done this year. You may become involved in spreading your knowledge through various forms of teaching or networking. There may be some (or increased) travel for business.
You are especially friendly, expressive, and warm-hearted this year, and you are able to nurture others with your words, ideas, and conduct. You are more able to juggle many different projects and commitments. This can be a year of much learning and sharing, mind expansion, higher education, and possibly travel if you are so inclined.
You are more imaginative and attuned to the world of beauty and romance in the year ahead. Gentleness with others is the best way to attract what you want into your life. There could be truly “magical” times on a romantic and social level. You are especially romantic this year, and you are likely to idealize and expand a relationship through sensitive interactions and a more giving approach. There can be frequent trips down memory lane, forgiveness or increased understanding of past problems with the people in your life, and a generally “dreamy” attitude towards relationships. Benefits come through paying attention to your dreams and intuitions, as well as through creativity. Your intuition is generally powerful when it comes to money-making ideas.
However, another influence in your Solar Return chart indicates intensity in your personal relationships and romantic attachments. Passions, feelings of jealousy, and possessiveness run high, and these emotions are in direct proportion to fear of losing someone. You are likely to have to deal with these emotions in yourself, but you may also need to handle the jealousies and possessiveness of a partner. Fear of betrayal may be strong this year. You might also experience compulsive attractions and attachments, or attraction to complicated love relationships. The need for deeper intimacy is present, but fear of this closeness may be just as strong. Something tiny can trigger all sorts of buried emotions, and this can be very revealing! If you find yourself dredging up old hurts, examine the emotional “slush” you’ve been carrying around with you. Avoid taking it out on your partner or on yourself. This energy can also play out on the level of finances, and you may have some tension over your personal finances, and/or need to make a large payment that necessitates changes in your spending habits. Finances may be complicated. Sometimes this influences suggests power struggles with money.
With Mars conjunct Saturn in your Solar Return chart, you are more determined and hard-working than usual. Circumstances are such that you need to take care of business, and as a result, you can have a very serious disposition at times. This is an excellent period for getting organized and for sticking with projects through to the end. When you face obstacles to your goals, which is a likely scenario this year, you are likely to just keep on pushing. Progress may be slow, but it’s steady and solid. What you accomplish now will benefit you for years to come.
Learning, traveling, and communications are favored this year, and positive new contacts can be made through these things. Your love of beauty and romance is enhanced this year, but there can be some intense emotions and experiences to deal with. You possess good work ethic and you are more thorough and able to see things through to completion. Circumstances are such that you need to take care of business and apply yourself to practical matters.
2012 is a Number Seven year for you. Ruled by Neptune. This is a year of preparation, chance, and refinement. It is not a time of dramatic changes. Instead, it’s a year when reflection on the past is helpful, and when refinements to your life path should be made. It’s a good year to study and analyze. Unexpected twists to your life story and “chance” meetings are probable. Advice – take stock of your life in order to prepare for more exciting years to come, examine the past and plan for the future, get in touch with your deepest needs and uncover your personal power, don’t strain yourself or actively try to expand.
2013 will be 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.
