If Today is Your Birthday: August 28
The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2007 to August 2008
With your birthday falling on the day of a Lunar Eclipse, the year ahead is likely to be one of epiphanies and revelations. The year promises to be a busy period in your life in which you make dramatic changes in your relationships and spiritual focus. This could be a year in which your dreaming life is especially active, vivid, and memorable. This period in your life is the culmination of a stage of personal growth and development. Events at this time may bring to a head various developments in your emotional, psychological, or spiritual life over the past few years. There can be increased activity in your professional and public life, causing a conflict with your domestic and personal goals, for example. There is little moderation in your life this year. Connections are made or ended; or your job focus may change as one focus fades to make way for a new direction. The year ahead is certain to be a very busy, dynamic, and significant period in your life.
The Sun conjuncts the South Node in your Solar Return chart, indicating that you are likely to be dealing with karma in your personal relationships, especially those with men. You may be feeling hesitant about pursuing your goals or “taking” what you want from life. Relationships always mirror our own inner conflicts, but this year, you are bound to find particular meaning in your relationship dynamics in terms of your own life path.
Saturn transits conjunct your Sun in the year ahead. 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. Practical matters come into strong focus and demand attention. You are likely to cut out some of the frivolous things in your life this year.
Despite this drive for security and stability, however, your mind and interactions with others are far from predictable. Mercury opposes Uranus and squares a Mars-Jupiter opposition. 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. You may get fired up over opposing viewpoints, and you may frequently need to adjust your plans 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!
A tendency to overstate, and to neglect important details when making plans, is strong. There are times when you have so very many ideas that you may 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. Relationships with younger people may be excitable and perhaps erratic. Your mind is working at top speed this year. Your senses are stimulated, and you could have sudden flashes of insight or fresh new ideas. You may be a little scatter-brained under these influences, and you could find it challenging to deal with routine matters or monotonous tasks. Learning new things is your passion this year–not recycling old ideas or performing repetitive processes.
You are also discovering your more impatient and rebellious side in the year ahead. If you do find yourself unreasonably stressed, it’s a good idea to figure out the source of your anger and deal with these issues. If you have not been very assertive, you are likely to discover your “voice” during this period.
Venus opposes Neptune 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.
An emotionally-charged, busy, and exciting year is in your forecast. You are mentally stimulated and perhaps even over-stimulated. Finding a suitable mental outlet for this excess energy will be necessary. As well, you are inclined to assert your will powerfully, and you could find yourself very much in demand. 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. Increased responsibilities and the need to pay extra attention to your practical affairs are also themes. Focus and commitment are keys to success!
2007 is a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice – let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.
2008 will be 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.
