If Today is Your Birthday: August 28
The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2008 to August 2009
In your Solar Return chart this year, Mercury is conjunct Venus, and both are in hard aspect to Pluto. This combination suggests a powerful creative urge this year. You are especially interested in art, music, and literature that is deep and moving. You have a lot of creative talent that can be expressed through many different media. You have the ability to make things that are both functional and beautiful.
In your social life, you are attempting to transcend the ordinary, which can be intense, but the extreme passions this combination arouses can also express themselves in jealousies and possessiveness. Something tiny can trigger all sorts of buried emotions, and this can be very revealing! If you find yourself dredging up old hurts, examine the emotional “slush” you’ve been carrying around with you. Avoid taking it out on your partner or on yourself. You might also make a large purchase or payment that necessitates changes in your spending habits.
While the past months may have been confusing or transitional in nature, a new sense of purpose is likely to become clear this year. It may be that you have been over-thinking and over-analyzing your life, and moving out of that habit can be quite freeing. Saturn has passed its conjunction to your Sun now, and the tendency to be hard on yourself is lifting.
Jupiter harmonizes with Saturn at the time of your birthday this year, suggesting a period of constructive accomplishment ahead. In general, you are practical, realistic, and your judgment is especially sound–and you derive much satisfaction from practical accomplishment. The key to harnessing this wonderful energy is to identify and find pleasure in the simple things that make you happy. A nice balance between optimism and practicality is with you this year.
Figuring strongly this year are new developments in, and new attitudes towards, love matters, finances, and social relationships. Your creative and love urges are powerful indeed. Willfulness could be your downfall, however, if you succumb to these feelings. New friendships, or new spins on established connections, are in your forecast.
2008 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.
2009 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.
