Your Birthday Year Forecast:
A trine between the Sun and the Moon in your Solar Return chart this year is a fortunate aspect. It suggests that your domestic and career needs are not in competition with one another in the year ahead. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa. This aspect is very powerful and rewarding. It suggests that you will be on top of your game this year, for the most part, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. A comfortable level of personal popularity helps to keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there is less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!
Neptune transits in opposition to your Sun this year from March 2013 forward. Your personal sense of reality changes dramatically during the course of this long-term transit. 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 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.
2013 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.
