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!
You begin your birthday year feeling quite solid and supported. Paying attention to the important details of your life is important now, and will lay the groundwork for future successes. This influence that keeps you on track and structured, is with you until October 2010.
In March 2011, you are benefiting from transiting Jupiter trine to your Sun, and this is a time to find ways to improve your life and your satisfaction from life. Resolving conflicts with others is favored, as you come across in a more favorable light than usual. Jupiter is giving your ego a boost, and it’s likely a much-needed boost. New visions of the future and new inspirations are likely to come along with this transit. You are likely to feel very good and confident during this period.
There may be a project, idea, or person that demands much of your attention or occupies much of your thoughts this year. It’s a strong period for any project or studies that require concentrated effort. You are especially resourceful. You can be especially persuasive and convincing in your communications, whether written or oral, and your perceptions are especially acute. You are inclined to do a lot of “digging”, researching, analyzing, investigating, and getting to the bottom of things. A new project or goal begun this year has a good chance of being successful and long-lasting.
You are likely to make important contacts through learning, communicating, and mental pursuits. The period ahead is sure to be an intellectually stimulating one in which the exchange of ideas with others figures prominently.
The practical aspects of your love relationships will be especially important to you this year, and security factors prominent. You might find yourself especially involved in a love interest’s day to day affairs. Genuineness, commitment, and faithfulness are extremely important qualities that you are seeking in your love life this year.
Saturn in opposition to Uranus around the time of your birthday suggests some restlessness. Attempts to assert your individuality, freedom, and originality undermine your feelings of groundedness and security. Yet, you are not satisfied when you conform. There may be sudden and unexpected twists that force you to do something different or that help free yourself from old habits. Adjusting your plans is in order, and striking a balance between convention and innovation is the challenge. Setbacks tend to be temporary and often lead to new, more creative paths or solutions. Ambivalence is likely and could color many of your interactions.
While many people born around your birthday experience this Saturn-Uranus influence in their Solar Return charts, it can be especially significant for you as Mars aspects this pair of planets. Sticking to tried and true methods for achieving your goals is a strong tendency, but frequent challenges to your methods, and even opposition, will force you to think outside the box. Don’t waste your time on feeling frustrated or blocked. Use this energy to work harder.
Jupiter joined with Uranus is also found in your Solar Return chart, and this suggests the need for progressive change in your life. You might take risks (perhaps, but not necessarily, foolish ones) for the sake of freedom. You are open to new energies, approaches, and attitudes. Fortunate events occur as a direct result of your willingness to entertain the unusual and to think outside of the box. Enthusiasm runs high, the desire for freedom from restrictions is strong, and thirst for adventure is with you.
Enthusiasm runs high this year, and you are especially able to handle minor stresses by keeping a broader perspective. You are also bound to deal with issues of control, anger, and power this year, however, and you might channel this energy into a constructive new pursuit or passion. Positive connections can be made in the year ahead, and your willingness to cooperate and exchange ideas is key.
2010 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.
2011 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.
