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 transits sextile to your Sun this year. This is a subtle and positive influence that helps to keep you on track. You are practical in your choices (for the most part), keeping your feet on the ground and paying attention to, and honoring, tradition as well as tried-and-true methods. You have the power of practicality, realism, and caution on your side in the year ahead. Work you have done in the past begins to pay off this year–not necessarily in dramatic ways, but in small, measurable ways. 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 are more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work. This is a year in which you might put your life in order in some manner. Improved concentration, 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.
In recent years, you have had Neptune opposing your Sun, and this may have challenged your perception of who you are and where you are going in life. This long-term influence comes to an end this year, and you are likely to feel clearer and more purposeful as a result.
This is an excellent year in which to advance projects revolving around communications – writing, speaking, selling, and so forth. Your reputation may be enhanced through word of mouth. Making new contacts through learning and mental pursuits figures strongly as well.
Artistic talent is emphasized this year, and respected – you can truly shine. You are motivated by the desire to strike a balance in your relationships and in your personal environment. Smooth negotiations with others are sought. You are more diplomatic and gracious this year. This is a good period in your life for social affairs, pleasure, amusement, and romance.
If you can channel and focus your enterprising spirit this year, you can do especially well. Professional and personal opportunities are likely to present themselves. Your faith in your ability to produce and to win takes you places you perhaps never imagined. Competitive activities, including sports and business, can thrive. However, you are likely to be dealing with periodic “roadblocks” to your plans, and these are signals from the cosmos that you need to slow down and review your plans before moving forward.
Your affections are strongly stimulated this year, and you are more acutely aware of your powers of attraction. Romance, love, and sexuality might occupy your mind more than usual. You can enjoy an increase in personal magnetism (as well as libido!), but be wary of competitiveness or tension in existing love relationships, as your passions in general are ignited, whether they’re feelings of love or anger! You should do your best to watch out for tendencies towards self-deception when it comes to money and love. Things might look too good to be true, simply because you want to see the best. Relationship ups and downs are possible, as this could be a year when romantic mirages are more likely. The “highs” of a relationship may be thrilling, but the accompanying “lows” can be draining. Uncertainty may characterize your love relationships this year. Be careful not to set yourself up for disappointment. The same goes for finances.
You’ll find that doors open to you this year, and that new connections are made, particularly through learning endeavors. Your more artistic, gracious, and diplomatic nature is spotlighted. The key to success this year is to adopt a realistic, slow-and-steady approach to your life. You may at times feel like your life isn’t moving quickly enough, but the progress you do make is likely to be lasting.
2011 is a Number Six year for you. Ruled by Venus. This is a year of relative contentment. It is a time when love is the easiest to attract, and partnerships formed under this vibration have a better chance for longevity. You are able to attract others, and material things as well, this year. This is a good year for establishing harmony in the family and in the home. Advice – develop existing relationships, be positive and receptive because these kinds of energies help you to attract what you desire.
2012 will be a Number Seven year for you. Ruled by Neptune. This is a year of preparation, chance, and refinement. It is not a time of dramatic changes. Instead, it’s a year when reflection on the past is helpful, and when refinements to your life path should be made. It’s a good year to study and analyze. Unexpected twists to your life story and “chance” meetings are probable. Advice – take stock of your life in order to prepare for more exciting years to come, examine the past and plan for the future, get in touch with your deepest needs and uncover your personal power, don’t strain yourself or actively try to expand.
