Your Birthday Year Forecast:
With the Sun and Moon in a waxing semi-square at the time of your birthday this year, the period ahead is one of new initiatives and action. You possess quite a bit of energy, but you must be aware that emotions color much of what you do this year. It can be hard to be objective as a result.
This can be a year in which you experience important turning points, or you could begin new projects or goals that have a long-term impact on your life.
Transiting Saturn continues to transit in harmony with your Sun until November 2016. This suggests benefits from keeping your feet on the ground and paying attention to, and honoring, tradition as well as tried-and-true methods. Work you have done in the past begins to pay off now – 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. When you project a more responsible and credible “you”, people in authority are more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work. This is a time in which you put your life in order in some significant manner. The key to success under this influence is adopting a realistic, practical, disciplined, and orderly approach to your life. Having a strong sense for both tradition and innovation opens doors for you. You have a real sense of tomorrow now, so it’s easier for you to take the necessary steps to make all of your “tomorrows” better.
Just when Saturn moves out of transit to your Sun, Jupiter moves into transiting harmony. From November 2016 forward, you benefit from a Jupiter transit. You have a stronger than usual desire to improve, grow, and learn. This is a fortunate aspect that helps boost optimism and confidence, and you can attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve. Matters related to universities, higher education, organized religion, publishing, legal affairs, and foreign interests can be especially favorable. It’s a good time to further your education. You are likely to enjoy a larger perspective on matters that keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses.
However, there can be some problems with blocks or delays with communications and transportation. Your thoughts are likely to be quite sober at times, and you should do your best to avoid negative thinking. This may be a year when you often retreat to work on specific tasks on your own. You might be required to travel for business purposes. The maturity of young people in your life may become an issue or area of focus. Thinking in realistic and practical terms is your best bet, and the need for tangible results for your efforts is strong. Still, there can be misunderstandings, misinformation, wishful thinking, or carelessness. Verify the facts before making decisions and avoid taking precipitate action. Certainly, you might often see things that others don’t, as you’re tuned into the subtle side of life and situations, but, at the same time, you may miss practical details.
There can be some fireworks in key relationships this year. Feelings can sometimes run hot and cold in love. Your affections are strongly stimulated, and you are more acutely aware of your powers of attraction. You can enjoy an increase in personal magnetism, but timing can be off and you should be wary of competitiveness or tension in existing love relationships, as your passions run high, whether they‘re feelings of love or anger.
Marketing and promotional activities can thrive. Business revolving around the home, nutrition, cooking, and real estate may be particularly fruitful.
You may win respect and recognition for your work or craft this year. There is a good balance between learning from tradition and seeing things progressively.
There is steadiness in many areas of your life this year, although relationships can be up and down. From November forward, you’re in an exceptionally strong position for taking advantage of new opportunities. There can be recognition for your work or talents. However, you may have a difficult time focusing on one or two projects during this period of life, and you can benefit from attempts to focus your energies.
2016 is a Number Five year for you. Ruled by Mercury. This is a year of exploration and freedom. It’s a time when exploration and reaching out to others brings opportunities. It’s a good time to advertise and sell. Surprises are in store, and the routine is broken. This is a year when exciting relationships can be formed, or, if you are already in a partnership, new life is breathed into the relationship. Advice – explore, look for adventure, keep your eyes open for opportunities, mingle.
2017 will be a Number Six year for you. Ruled by Venus. This is a year of relative contentment. It is a time when love is the easiest to attract, and partnerships formed under this vibration have a better chance for longevity. You are able to attract others, and material things as well, this year. This is a good year for establishing harmony in the family and in the home. Advice – develop existing relationships, be positive and receptive because these kinds of energies help you to attract what you desire.
