Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The Moon is in its Balsamic phase in your Solar Return chart, marking the end of an important cycle, or stage of growth, in your life. You take more “down time” than normal, and this is natural, even good for you this year.
Transiting Saturn squares your Sun from December forward, and will have you reorganizing your priorities. You’ll be working hard at disciplining yourself. As you face obstacles to your goals, you begin to see the tools with which you have to overcome them. A dose of realism may seem forced upon you from time to time during this period, but your efforts to measure up to expectations can ultimately increase your confidence in your ability to be responsible for yourself. You are likely to have new or increased responsibilities, and it might take some time to get adjusted to them. The need to re-structure and re-organize your life will be apparent. You may lose yourself in work and responsibilities and take yourself too seriously! This is a time for working hard, but it’s important to make time for relaxation and meditation as well. Most commonly, this influence suggests that a period of the year ahead may be felt to be physically draining and frustrating. When you begin to feel this influence, the best strategy is to take a step back, avoid worrying about what others think of you, and simply apply yourself to your work and duties until it passes. Recognize that you may be challenging yourself by expecting too much. Your ego may be a little frail at this point, and, as a result, you may be harder on yourself than you should be. Much can be accomplished this year. Although you may not see immediate results for your efforts, important groundwork can be laid for the future.
You can convey your ideas more powerfully this year. You are quick to take the initiative and to put your thoughts into action. Adventuresome travel may be part of the picture. There can be more activity with young people, making connections, and learning. You are more inclined to put your ideas into action than usual. There may be a project, idea, or person that demands much of your attention or occupies much of your thoughts. It’s a strong year for any project or studies that require concentrated effort. You are especially resourceful.
Your powers of attraction are very strong this year – you are especially magnetic. There can be pleasing circumstances surrounding your love life, finances, and creative pursuits. You are generous with others, and they with you. You might receive financial backing or special gifts in the period ahead, although a tendency to indulge and spend money is something to look out for. You seek a little more from your love life and you are likely to receive it. Some of you could fall in love this year, or existing relationships get a nice boost. Adventure-seeking is a theme. You have a freer attitude towards expressing your affection this year. Watch for competitiveness or tension in your social life, as your passions are ignited this year, whether your feelings are of love or anger.
You are more eager to embrace those things that are new, unusual, and out-of-the-ordinary with regards to romantic involvements as well as financial undertakings. You are ready to experiment, and not necessarily ready or eager to commit. This could be a good year for financial undertakings involving electronics, technology, the internet, metaphysics, and the arts, as well as group activities. You have a taste for the offbeat, and this energy can bring sudden or unexpected romance into your life for some of you.
Your social life is certainly more active this year, but you are also tuned in to working towards practical goals. This is a time when dedication and commitment to goals runs high. You derive special satisfaction from a job well done. This is an excellent time to cultivate patience.
With Mars conjunct Saturn in your Solar Return chart, you are more determined and hard-working than usual. This is an excellent time to get organized and to stick with projects through to the end. When you face obstacles to your goals, which is a likely scenario this year, you are likely to just keep on pushing. Progress may be slow, but it’s steady and solid. What you accomplish now will benefit you for years to come.
This is a powerful year for focus and commitment, but you should watch for a tendency to work yourself too hard or to set your expectations too high. Your social life may be an emotional rollercoaster at times, but certainly exciting. There can be an increased ability to focus on those things that truly matter, and you can be very productive as a result. This is a strong year for better organizing significant areas of your life.
2014 is a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.
2015 will be a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is less active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract both things and people. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice – be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect.
