Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The New Moon in your Solar Return chart suggests that you will instinctively begin a new phase of your life this year. A decisively new direction has come about in your life. This can be an emotionally stimulating time in which you feel the urge to initiate and project, even if you are not quite clear about what you are projecting.
Much of the energy in your life can have a magical quality to it as things are just automatically going in a certain direction. It is important to be intuitive at this time and allow the natural course to show you the way to the next step. Surprises (mostly very pleasant) pepper your year. New beginnings are in order, and you are bound to feel some level of excitement as the year unfolds.
This can be a year in which you experience important turning points, or you could begin new projects or goals that have a long-term impact on your life.
You’re also speaking up more often. This can be a year for improved mental connectedness or more energetic attention to communicating and sharing ideas. You re putting your ideas out there more confidently, and you re more inclined to put your ideas into action than usual.
You’re likely to have many projects and ideas going on at this time in your life–you’re hungry for variety, knowledge, and mental excitement. You have a pleasing way with words, whether spoken or written (or both), and a love for order in the world of ideas and problem-solving.
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.
Your optimism can help you to attract positive circumstances into your life. You are especially enthusiastic about your ideas, and expressing yourself verbally and in written form comes easily. Public relations and negotiations tend to run especially smoothly. This is a time for thinking about what is really important to you in the long run.
At times this year, there can be some turbulence in your love or social life. You might want to watch for impatience with others. Some disruptions in your friendships and attachments are possible. Unusual attractions (to people and things) can have you acting on a whim. You may deal with freedom versus closeness issues in your relationships. This Uranian energy may play out on other levels related to socializing, spending, and pleasure. For example, vacation plans may go awry or agreements could be broken. Impulsive spending is something to watch for.
Even so, this can be a time when some relationships go through healing. Ups and downs may lead to new commitments. You’ll have a chance to heal old wounds with regards to love this year. You’re also bound to find new ways of making money.
This can be a good time to get work done with or for loved ones as well as with home and hearth. It’s also a strong period for the motivation to grow and improve a business or long-term project.
Keep an eye out for a tendency to gravitate 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 in spots. Although you may enjoy an increase in your intuitive capabilities, you could also be too open to influence. With varying energy levels, aim to take advantage of the high periods 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.
With Uranus transiting square your Sun from May 2024 forward, you crave and seek more freedom, and how you deal with this issue makes all the difference as to the overriding themes of this period of your life. If you recognize your need for changes in key areas of your life and adapt accordingly, this can be an exciting year of discovery. However, if you resist change and insist on keeping things status quo, you are bound to feel very restless, tense, and rebellious. Either way, making healthy changes should be the focus instead of change just for the sake of change. Spontaneity, not impulsiveness, is the key to success this year. Fortunately, you have a lot of cosmic support for this.
Fortunately, from June 2024 forward, Chiron transits in harmony with your Sun, and it’s an important time for healing, both emotionally and physically. Your more unique qualities stand out most pleasantly. You have the chance to improve your relationships with others–and with yourself! A humbly confident approach to life earns you respect. Teaching others may be part of the picture, informally or formally.
You can feel as if you’re beginning a new chapter in your life, and the year ahead holds good energy for new opportunities. You’re optimistic and ready to take on a challenge. Despite some ups and downs socially, your social life is colorful and dynamic. You’re making significant connections this year.
2023 is 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 pay special attention to 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 often not formed in a Four personal year. However, it can be a wonderful year for building, developing, and laying a solid foundation for future successes. Advice - get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
2024 will be a Number Five year for you. Ruled by Mercury. This is a year of discovery and freedom. It's a time when exploration and reaching out to others brings opportunities. It's a good time to advertise, promote, and sell. Surprises are in store, and the routine is broken for the better. This is a year when exciting relationships can be formed; or, if you are already in a partnership, you're breathing new life into the relationship. Advice - explore, look for adventure, keep your eyes open for opportunities, diversify, mingle.
