The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2007 to August 2008
The Sun joins with Saturn and trines Pluto in your Return chart. 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.
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!
Mercury is in hard aspect to Mars and Jupiter in your Return chart, and you are inclined to attach greater meaning to your experiences. A tendency to overstate, and to neglect important details when making plans, is strong. You may have so very many ideas that you end up implementing none! You are likely to have opportunities for travel and/or new learning experiences. What you say or write could stimulate conflict.
Venus opposes Neptune and trines Pluto in your Solar Return this year. Some caution with your personal finances and your social relationships is in order. Most importantly, you should do your best to watch out for tendencies towards self-deception. Things might look too good to be true, simply because you want to see the best in others. 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 from time to time this year. Be careful not to set yourself up for disappointment. The same goes for finances. Because Venus is also in favorable aspect to Pluto, the outcome is likely quite good. However, do try to take off the rose-colored glasses when it comes to new financial initiatives and romance. If you don’t, you could be in for some disappointment when things fail to measure up to your dreams and ideals. Romantic relationships and attractions certainly have a fated quality to them. 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, although ups and downs and a few disappointments in these areas of life are likely. You are mentally stimulated and perhaps even over-stimulated in the year ahead. Finding a suitable mental outlet for this excess energy will be necessary. 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, particularly by cutting out bad habits and attitudes. You have the determination and energy to do so!
2007 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.
2008 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.
