Your Birthday Year Forecast: The Sun in harmonious aspect to the Moon in your Solar Return chart is a pleasant aspect, suggesting that your domestic and career needs are not in competition with one another this year. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa. You are likely to 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 keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there will be less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!
You are likely to make important contacts through learning, communicating, and mental pursuits this year. The period ahead is sure to be an intellectually stimulating one in which the exchange of ideas with others figures prominently.
Saturn transits sextile your Sun this year from November 2010 forward, and you are likely feeling quite solid and supported. Paying attention to the important details of your life is important now, and will lay the groundwork for future successes. This influence keeps you on track and structured. You are practical in your choices (for the most part), keeping your feet on the ground and paying attention to, and honoring, tradition as well as tried-and-true methods. You have the power of practicality, realism, and caution on your side in the year ahead. Work you have done in the past begins to pay off this year–not necessarily in dramatic ways, but in small, measurable ways. 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 are more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work. This is a year in which you put your life in order in some significant manner. Improved concentration, a more realistic outlook, and a practical awareness of the limits of time all help you to make steady progress, particularly in your career. Your concern for your future this year is stronger than usual, and you may find that projects you start, or investments you make, this year will benefit you for years to come. The key to success this year is adopting a realistic, practical, disciplined, and orderly approach to your life.
In March 2011, you benefit from transiting Jupiter trine to your Sun, and this is a time to find ways to improve your life and your satisfaction from life. Resolving conflicts with others is favored, as you come across in a more favorable light than usual. Jupiter is giving your ego a boost, and it’s likely a much-needed boost. New visions of the future and new inspirations are likely to come along with this transit. You are likely to feel very good and confident during this period.
The practical aspects of your love relationships will be especially important to you this year, and security factors prominent. You might find yourself especially involved in a love interest’s day to day affairs. Genuineness, commitment, and faithfulness are extremely important qualities that you are seeking in your love life this year. In your love life, you can sometimes struggle between sticking with familiar habit patterns and feeling like you need more. There can be some see-sawing as you try to find a balance for your needs for both stability and excitement. While there is a strong urge for security and familiarity in love, there can be some disruptions to these patterns.
You have an especially strong urge to get on track financially, to buckle down, to budget, and to save. However, there can be times when whim overcomes you, or there can be disruptions that throw you off course temporarily.
Dancing, swimming, photography, arts, and entertainment are especially favored this year. If you are an artist, this could be an especially inspired, imaginative, and productive year.
Saturn in opposition to Uranus around the time of your birthday suggests some restlessness. Attempts to assert your individuality, freedom, and originality undermine your feelings of groundedness and security. Yet, you are not satisfied when you conform. There may be sudden and unexpected twists that force you to do something different or that help free yourself from old habits. Adjusting your plans is in order, and striking a balance between convention and innovation is the challenge. Setbacks tend to be temporary and often lead to new, more creative paths or solutions. Ambivalence is likely and could color many of your interactions.
While many people born around your birthday experience this Saturn-Uranus influence in their Solar Return charts, it can be especially significant for you as both Venus and Mars aspect this pair of planets. Sticking to tried and true methods for achieving your goals is a strong tendency, but frequent challenges to your methods, and even opposition, will force you to think outside the box. Don’t waste your time on feeling frustrated or blocked. Use this energy to work harder. It’s important that you stay grounded and realistic in your expectations.
Jupiter joined with Uranus is also found in your Solar Return chart, and this suggests the need for progressive change in your life. You might take risks (perhaps, but not necessarily, foolish ones) for the sake of freedom. You are open to new energies, approaches, and attitudes. Fortunate events occur as a direct result of your willingness to entertain the unusual and to think outside of the box. Enthusiasm runs high, the desire for freedom from restrictions is strong, and thirst for adventure is with you.
The major key to success this year is managing to keep your feet on the ground and your expectations realistic. However, you are also bound to deal with issues of control, anger, and power this year, and you might channel this energy into a constructive new pursuit or passion. Overall, you are thinking clearly and making steady progress. Positive connections can be made through learning endeavors.
2010 is 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.
2011 will be a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It’s generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice – take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.
