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 tend to be a bit bolder, more assertive, and energetic. You are especially interested in setting goals and challenges for yourself, and you’re taking the necessary action to meet them. You may meet or interact with others who encourage or inspire you in some way to have more confidence in yourself. Independent work is favored and competitive activities may also thrive this year.
This can be an especially busy year of your life! At times, you may feel like the pace of your life is running ahead of you. You can be especially productive, however, in all types of communications–writing, speaking, learning, teaching, and so forth–as long as you focus on a few important projects and pursuits rather than scatter your energies around.
There can be increased opportunities for friendship and love this year. Pleasurable activities are in focus. There can be some temptation to overspend or overdo, but also some very enjoyable moments.
You’re in excellent shape to see relating patterns and use them positively to encourage creativity and excitement. You’re creative, competitive, and smart about how to get ahead.
Relationships get a boost. You’re likely to feel pleasantly attached, finding it natural and easy to nurture and support people in your life. You’re strongly motivated to bring harmony, balance, and peace into your environment and relationships during this period.
At the same time, you are likely to establish connections and/or relationships with people that help forward your own personal growth. Teamwork and camaraderie, as well as meaningful connections, are themes. You feel your life has definite purpose this year. Through your contacts, you are encouraged to grow. You may assume a leadership role.
This can also 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.
This is a strong period for publicity and any other endeavors that involve spreading the word. As well, your ability to be objective–or to see the “big picture”–can be especially pronounced and rewarding this year.
With a Mars-Pluto challenge, you could move mountains when it comes to pushing your projects ahead if your channel this determined energy well. If mishandled, however, you could be argumentative or stressed. It may be best to avoid taking extreme measures to make things happen your way, and avoid people who might be doing same. Deliberately trying to maneuver things in order to get the upper hand will be a lesson in frustration. It may not be worth it in the end.
You’re likely to experience a stronger desire to seek meaning, wisdom, and mental stimulation in your life during this period. Others might frequently turn to you for guidance.
New beginnings are in store. You’re especially creative and energy levels increase in the period ahead, although they can also be up and down. You can experience stop-and-go energy, and it’s best to take advantage of the periods when you’re feeling especially enterprising and confident. You’re growing through your connections and a key partnership, and you’re finding ways to heal and improve. Your creative impulses are powerful, and your goals are evolving.
