Your Birthday Year Forecast:
When a Quarter Moon occurs in your Return chart, as it does this year, you are at some sort of a turning point in your life, in terms of personal growth. Events that occur this year act as catalysts that get you in touch with some important issues in your emotional life. Your emotions run high, and mood swings or identity crises are possible. There may be some kind of conflict in your life arising from a great urge to do something different. The year ahead promises to be a busy, dynamic, and significant period in your life.
However, for the most part, your feet are on the ground this year. You are able to meet your responsibilities, and you are more willing to make important commitments. Your concern for your future 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. Your elders or authority figures in your life tend to look upon you favorably during this period in your life. The major key to success this year is adopting a realistic, practical, disciplined, and orderly approach to your life.
Care should be taken when it comes to expressing yourself this year, however, as the chance of misunderstandings runs high. Fuzzy thinking or glossing over important details should be watched for. Nevertheless, you are eager to put some of your ideas into action this year.
Spontaneity is brought to your personal relationships this year. Social meetings and events, and situations that call for treating others with equality and respect, are especially favored. You may lose your fear of taking risks this year on a social level, and happily embrace all that is new, unusual, and out-of-the-ordinary with regards to romantic involvements as well as financial undertakings. You are ready to experiment. This could be a good year for financial undertakings involving electronics, technology, the internet, metaphysics, and the arts, as well as group activities. You have a taste for the offbeat this year, and this energy can bring sudden or unexpected romance into your life, perhaps even a scenario that feels like love at first sight.
You are more inclined to act upon your intuition, your sexual fantasies may be especially strong, and your creative impulses are potent this year. At times, you will have a “what will be, will be” attitude. Dancing, swimming, photography, arts, and entertainment are favored. 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.
Love and romance are likely a big part of your life this year, but you could encounter problems due to overblown expectations or excessive behavior in this area. You may overindulge your various appetites whether for social intercourse, food, sex, candy, alcohol, or whatever tickles your fancy. Find a way to strike a balance between self-gratification and the obligations of daily life.
You are creatively inclined this year, and benefits can come through a gentle, imaginative approach to your life. Your social life picks up pace as you are especially willing to take personal risks in order to enjoy yourself more fully, although at times you may be inclined to go overboard. In a general sense, however, you are more practical and concerned about your future security than usual.
2011 is 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.
2012 will be 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.
