Your Birthday Year Forecast:
When a Quarter Moon occurs in your Return chart, as it does this year, you are at some sort of a turning point in your life, in terms of personal growth. Events that occur this year act as catalysts that get you in touch with some important issues in your emotional life. Your emotions run high, and mood swings or identity crises are possible. There may be some kind of conflict in your life arising from a great urge to do something different. The year ahead promises to be a busy, dynamic, and significant period in your life.
Saturn’s square to your Sun lifts in October, and you begin to feel that life is working for you rather than against you. Many recent concerns and worries are likely to clear up at this point. In July 2015, Jupiter transits conjunct your Sun, and you’re even more forward-looking. Confidence and popularity receive a nice boost. You are looking ahead and leaving disabling attitudes and limitations behind. You are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life.
Your powers of attraction are very strong this year – you are especially magnetic. There can be pleasing circumstances surrounding your love life, finances, and creative pursuits. You are generous with others, and they with you. You might receive financial backing or special gifts in the period ahead, although a tendency to indulge and spend money is something to look out for. You seek a little more from your love life and you are likely to receive it. Some of you could fall in love this year, or existing relationships get a nice boost. Adventure-seeking is a theme. You have a freer attitude towards expressing your affection this year. Your open heart is likely to attract easygoing friendships or love opportunities into your life. Even so, there can be some tendency for disappointments in your social life this year. You will benefit from being more discriminating with money and people you allow into your life, and if you feel people are crossing boundaries, you may need to reorganize your friendships by turning away from those who seem to be taking advantage, and toward people who are trustworthy.
This can be a very powerful year for putting strong effort into a long-time goal or dream and making it happen. A new project or goal begun this year has a good chance of being successful and long-lasting. This is an excellent year in which to make a lifestyle change, as your ability to concentrate on what really matters to you is enhanced.
Especially from October forward, you are living life with more joy this year. Watch for a tendency to go overboard when it comes to romance, money, and recreation – enjoy yourself, but not to the point that you are borrowing from your future happiness and security. There can be a strong sense that you’re beginning anew, and people tend to enjoy your company, ideas, and contributions. This is a powerful year for energy levels, focus, and commitment.
2014 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 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. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
2015 will be a Number Five year for you. Ruled by Mercury. This is a year of exploration and freedom. It’s a time when exploration and reaching out to others brings opportunities. It’s a good time to advertise and sell. Surprises are in store, and the routine is broken. This is a year when exciting relationships can be formed, or, if you are already in a partnership, new life is breathed into the relationship. Advice – explore, look for adventure, keep your eyes open for opportunities, mingle.
