The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2007 to August 2008
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. It promises to be a busy, dynamic, and significant period in your life.
The Sun joins with Venus, Mercury, and Saturn, all of which trine Pluto, in your Return chart. This is quite a combination! New responsibilities are likely to present themselves, or you are required to take your current responsibilities more seriously. Although Saturn’s influence is traditionally considered restrictive, it does not have to be a depressing influence by all means. Some people react in such a way, but others benefit greatly from the stark realism that now enters their lives. The kind of progress you make now may not seem significant for the time being, but you will look back on this period of your life as one in which you truly made REAL progress towards your goals. You may be recognized or rewarded in some way for the efforts you put forth. Because you project a more responsible and credible you, people in authority tend to be more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work.
This is a year in which you put your life in order in some significant manner. Improved concentration and focus, a more realistic outlook, and a practical awareness of the limits of time all help you to make steady progress, particularly in your career. Your concern for your future this year is stronger than usual, and you may find that projects you start, or investments you make, this year will benefit you for years to come. The key to success this year is adopting a realistic, practical, disciplined, and orderly approach to your life. This is a year when dedication and commitment to your goals runs high. You are more productive in a reliable and consistent way. You derive satisfaction from a job well done, especially if you can readily attach meaning to it. You are able to see yourself, and your purpose, very clearly. This is an excellent year in which to cultivate patience as well as to weed out the unnecessary in order to focus on what really matters. You might find that you become more goal-oriented, as superficial goals no longer satisfy you. You want your life path and your objectives to reflect what youre really about, and you are likely to rid yourself of unsatisfying goals this year. You benefit from being more decisive than usual, and your ability to concentrate and focus help you to achieve what you set out to do. A new project or goal begun this year has a good chance of being successful and long-lasting.
Your mental faculties are attuned to otherworldly impressions, offering you increased insight, psychological understanding and awareness, and focused attention. You are inclined to do a lot of digging, researching, analyzing, investigating, and getting to the bottom of things. Increased psychological awareness of yourself and others can benefit you greatly, and employing strategy in your decision making is easier than usual this year. Relationships with younger people may be especially rewarding and meaningful.
Although you are bound to show great enthusiasm for your endeavors this year, over-estimating what you are capable of doing is a potential problem with Mars in hard aspect to Jupiter. You may get fired up over opposing viewpoints, and you may need to adjust your plan of action. Errors in judgment made now are likely due to impulsiveness and the overlooking of crucial details. Nevertheless, you have a lot of energy and enthusiasm at your disposal. Channeled well, you could get a lot accomplished!
Venus conjuncts Saturn, suggesting that problems in personal relationships that have been swept under the carpet may surface this year, and you are ready to face them. Dissatisfaction with loved ones becomes more glaring. Support from older people or authority figures may come by way of solid advice or tangible help. Renewed ties to old friends are possible, or a new sense of responsibility in existing friendships. A pleasing trine between Venus and Pluto suggests that romantic relationships and attractions have a fated quality to them this year. This could be a year in which you fall in love, and this could be with a person, an activity, or a cause! Meeting someone who transforms your life, and more specifically your values and attitude towards love, is possible under this influence. Strong existing relationships are likely to grow and transform in rewarding ways, as you are more open than usual to intensity and passion. Although they can be up and down at times, your finances could also improve dramatically this year as long as you employ strategy.
There is nothing light or superficial about your life this year. Getting your finances and your love life in order plays a big role. You are set to make important changes to the way you live your life and express yourself, and you are likely to feel quite invigorated as a result. This is an excellent year in which to make big improvements to your life. You have the determination and energy to do so!
