If Today is Your Birthday: August 26
The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2006-August 2007
With the New Moon phase occurring in your Solar Return chart, your life is on an upswing. Life is moving forward, new beginnings are in store, and you feel fresh and vital overall.
Venus squares Jupiter, conjuncts Saturn, and opposes Neptune–a somewhat complex configuration, suggesting that your love life and personal finances will be subject to a number of influences, some of which are contradictory. Your love nature is strong, but given to extremes at times. Over-inflated expectations is something to watch out for. You may overvalue something (or someone), perhaps in an attempt to dramatize your life. While at times you may feel insecure on a social level–even reclusive–other times this year you feel quite the opposite: sociable, in the mood to party, dramatic, extravagant, and inclined to overindulge as a result of a feeling of inner discontent and a desire for more from life than daily routines. In social relationships, you may often find that you have to make a choice in which both alternatives are desirable, but you must choose one at the expense of the other. Jupiter offers ease, contentment, freedom, and material comfort. Saturn asks you to be responsible, hard working, dutiful, and serious. Neptune places a veil over your eyes, and seduces you into believing what you want to believe rather than what really is. You need to assess areas of your life that have become dysfunctional and, in the process, you may need to sacrifice a material benefit for a spiritual good (or vice versa). You are likely to face situations that are disillusioning on social, financial, and romantic levels. You are learning a valuable spiritual lesson that will help you to put your priorities in better perspective. This lesson may come in mysterious ways. Spiritual, artistic, or musical endeavors can provide a welcome relief. The final outcome will be a more serious and responsible attitude toward your own creativity and spiritual development. This can be a confusing time when you are not sure about who you are or where you are going in your love life. You may have to struggle to keep your feet firmly planted on the ground. Things that seemed glamorous in your dreams may reveal their flaws in the light of day.
Mars in square to Pluto around the time of your birthday this year suggests that you possess powerful, transformative energy, and much will depend on how you handle it. Channeled positively, you could move mountains when it comes to moving your projects ahead. If mishandled, however, you could be argumentative, stressed, and hell-bent on having your way! Avoid taking extreme measures to make things happen your way, and avoid people who might be doing same. Deliberately trying to maneuver things in order to get the upper hand will be a lesson in frustration.
Your mental faculties are attuned to otherworldly impressions with Mercury trine Pluto in your Solar Return. This aspect offers 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.
A Jupiter-Uranus trine in your Return chart suggests that an enterprising spirit this year can really take you places. Sudden opportunities for advancement in different areas of your life appear. At the heart of this is your ability to recognize and capitalize upon opportunities and potentials. Fortunate events occur as a direct result of your willingness to entertain the unusual and to think outside of the box. This aspect favors group activities, financial endeavors associated with groups or organizational efforts, educational pursuits, writing, publishing, speaking, and humanitarian efforts.
2006 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.
2007 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.
