Your Birthday Year Forecast:
A trine between the Sun and the Moon in your Solar Return chart this year is a fortunate aspect. It suggests that your domestic and career needs are not in competition with one another in the year ahead. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa. This aspect is very powerful and rewarding. It suggests that you will 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 to keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there is less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!
This year, you can feel that your spiritual and material goals harmonize or at least don’t get in each other’s way. Circumstances and your own attitudes facilitate following through on your dreams or turning your visions and ideals into reality. Combining imagination and effort is successful now. There can be a sense that your dreams are realizable, and you can build stronger faith and acceptance.
You have a strong capacity to dedicate yourself to things you hold dear this year, and particularly to a creative vision. Your ideas and plans are especially big and far-reaching right now.
Transiting Saturn square your Sun from February 2014 forward is a rather heavy and sober influence, but also one that is certain to straighten you out on some level. You’ll be working hard at disciplining yourself. As you face obstacles to your goals, you begin to see the tools with which you have to overcome them. A dose of realism may seem forced upon you from time to time during this period, but your efforts to measure up to expectations can ultimately increase your confidence in your ability to be responsible for yourself. You are likely to have new or increased responsibilities, and it might take some time to get adjusted to them. The need to re-structure and re-organize your life will be apparent. You may lose yourself in work and responsibilities and take yourself too seriously! As long as you work hard, but take time for relaxation and meditation as well, there is nothing to worry about. Most commonly, this influence suggests that a period of the year ahead may be felt to be physically draining and frustrating. When you begin to feel this influence, all you need to do is take a step back, avoid worrying about what others think of you, and simply apply yourself to your work and duties until it passes. Recognize that you may be challenging yourself by expecting too much. Your ego may be a little frail at this point, and, as a result, you may be harder on yourself than you should be. Much can be accomplished this year. Although you may not see immediate results for your efforts, important groundwork can be laid for the future.
This is a strong year for learning and communications. You are able to find new insight into old problems, and your thinking processes during this period are likely to be especially original. This is a good year for projects involving technology or New Age topics. You may find more opportunities to attend meetings and other organized group activities, to communicate online, and to take part in activities involving computers, science, or metaphysics. 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.
Hard work and humility are the major keys to success this year, even if you don’t always know where you’re headed. While there can be sobering and possibly lonely periods at times, it’s a good time for straightening up or organizing important areas of your life. Life may seem to slow down a little, and you can catch your breath. Your social life should be rewarding and mostly pleasant.
2013 is a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time, when it is easy to enjoy life and other people. Focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure. It is likely to be a rather lighthearted year, when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a good year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out, but avoid scattering your energies.
2014 will be 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 deal with 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 generally not formed in a Four personal year. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
