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.
Neptune continues to transit in opposition to your Sun this year. Your personal sense of reality changes dramatically during the course of this long-term transit that begin in April 2012. You possess a strong desire for peace and harmony, and perhaps some sense that you have to make sacrifices for that end. Your body itself is sensitive, and you must be cautious with drugs, and be aware that you might tire more easily, so do try to select your projects accordingly. You may behave in an impractical manner, or you may be vulnerable to deception or betrayal from others. You may undergo a crisis of identity during the initial stages of this transit, and the experiences you have may lead you to a more refined understanding of yourself and the direction in which you want to head. This can be a time of illusions and confusion, or it can be a very inspired time. Recognizing that you need more on a spiritual level can help you handle the transit more constructively. You are more idealistic than usual, which can cause a few problems if you’re not careful. Some confusion about where you are headed in life is quite likely. Inflated expectations that can interfere with your mood, producing highs and lows, may be something you’ll be dealing with this year. The trick is to use this energy for creative envisioning and problem-solving. There is a reason behind this “identity crisis”–you are learning to let go of ego attachments. Your self-image is being re-worked, and you are becoming more sensitive to a greater, perhaps more spiritual, sense of purpose.
Nevertheless, setting goals and challenges for yourself can be quite successful. You may meet or interact with others who encourage or inspire you in some way. Your desire nature is strong, and increased physical activity is likely. Independent work is favored.
It’s quite likely that you will be re-evaluating relationships in terms of whether or not they are contributing to your personal growth. You can face some hurtles as you move forward, one of which is likely to be tricky dynamics in close personal relationships. Relationships can be confusing or tricky this year – you may have a hard time gaining clarity through others.
Mars is trine Neptune in your Return chart, suggesting that you are more inclined to act upon your intuition and your creative impulses are potent. This aspect helps to soften your disposition, smoothing out some of the tension in your life. At times, you will have a “what will be, will be” attitude. This influence favors dancing, swimming, photography, arts, and entertainment. If you are an artist, this could be an especially inspired, imaginative, and productive year. Pay attention to your gut feelings, which will, more often than not, give you valuable information. If you are involved in sales, you will be able to tune into your client’s inner desires and motivations.
Creativity is strong this year, and you can often put plans into motion and act on your dreams. Your desire nature is stronger than usual. Circumstances are such that you may be reassessing relationships and possibly your life path. You are tuning in to a more spiritual or creative side, although in the process, some confusion or lack of direction may be experienced.
2012 is 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.
2013 will be 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.
