Your Birthday Year Forecast:
Your birthday occurs around a First Quarter Moon this year, and you are reaching an important turning point in terms of personal growth. You may be more emotional this year, and should watch for unnecessary conflicts and making hasty decisions as a result. Otherwise, this is a year of great energy, motivation, and growth. You are more ambitious and desirous of action in the year ahead. This should be a busy, dynamic period in your life.
You are more able to have fun, and you seek out new adventures in the period ahead. There can be times when you’re emotionally restless, but for the most part, the year can be good for mental refreshment and broadening your horizons.
You can experience strong mental connectedness or more energetic attention to communicating and sharing ideas this year. You’re putting your ideas out there more confidently, and you’re more inclined to put your ideas into action than usual.
You might seek more intensity in love or with your activities, pleasures, or hobbies. Awareness of the importance of healthy relating and intimacy increases. It’s possible you renew and deepen a significant love commitment or social connection. Attractions tend to be strong and stimulating, perhaps hidden, and possibly highly motivating. Or, an existing bond rises to a new level. Romantic relationships and attractions can seem to have a fated quality to them this year.
This could be a year when you fall in love, which could be with a person, an activity, or a cause! Meeting someone who transforms your life, especially your values and attitude towards love, is possible. There can be more intensity and passion in relationships or pastimes. Your finances could also improve with an increased ability to strategize and cut out frivolous expenses.
You are willing to put in the effort to make a relationship work, or you may successfully team up with a partner to work or fill a responsibility. You find more value in security and stability in your relationships. It’s a powerful period for being fair and patient with one another, and reaping the rewards.
This can be a brilliant time for strategy and insight. You’re more willing to invest your energy into solving problems. Your natural talents are in the spotlight. This is a good time for healing, regenerative activities, particularly on a mental plane.
Bursts of creativity and energy emerge at seemingly perfect times, and help you to further your goals. Healthy risk-taking is likely this year, as you are more able to spot an opportunity when you see one. It is easier than usual to break free from habits that have previously held you back from going after what you want in life.
However, transiting Saturn opposes your Sun from April 2022 forward, calling upon you to identify the weaker areas of your life and to fix or strengthen them. Take the time to sort out details, improve your work, and become more efficient this month. Taking a slow and steady approach to life is necessary during this period. Pushing too hard will likely lead to frustration and setbacks. Take it easy and work on self-improvement. Results are not immediate, but will eventually come and bring healthy rewards. Relationships may be (or seem) more challenging than usual while Saturn opposes your Sun.
Fortunately, there can be helpful interactions with superiors or with older or more experienced people during this period, and benefits can come as a result. There can be a choice to structure, limit, or simplify your life in a significant way that leads to major improvements in your life.
Cooperation brings rewards this year. Satisfying new or improved pastimes can figure strongly. When you are motivated, you can accomplish great things, bringing new life to old goals. Strategy works best. It’s a great year to find a healthier balance between work and play.
2021 is a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is generally not as active as other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract what--and who--you want into your life now. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice - be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect, develop, build, and attract.
2022 will be a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time when you find it natural and easy to enjoy life and other people. The focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploring. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure than you are in other years. It's likely to be a rather lighthearted year when opportunities for "play" time are greater than usual. It's also a favorable year for expressing your creativity. Advice - reach out and connect but avoid scattering your energies.
