Your Birthday Year Forecast:
A trine between the Sun and the Moon in your Solar Return chart this year is a fortunate aspect. It suggests that your domestic and career needs are not in competition with one another in the year ahead. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa. This aspect is very powerful and rewarding. It suggests that you will 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 to keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there is less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!
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.
Artistic talent is emphasized this year, and respected – you can truly shine. Certain elements of your social life and financial life are stabilized, secured, and more reliable this year. You may solidify a romantic relationship or become involved with a mature partner. Circumstances may be such that you need to handle money more carefully this year, or this may simply come naturally to you now. Support from older people or authority figures may come by way of solid advice or more tangible help. Renewed ties to old friends are possible, or a new sense of responsibility in existing friendships, are also highly likely.
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, and can gain tremendous new insight into matters.
You are more inclined to act upon your intuition, your sexual fantasies may be especially strong, and your creative impulses are potent this year. Dancing, swimming, photography, arts, and entertainment are favored. If you are an artist, this could be an especially inspired, imaginative, and productive year. Bursts of restlessness, rebellion, and impatience can be experienced, however. At times, you may have a tendency to take risks and to act on sudden impulses without considering consequences. There may be changes in work schedules, or life’s circumstances could challenge you in such a way that you need to change your goals or actions. This can also be a time when you tend to resist others and challenge them if they are trying to hold you back. Arguments and confrontations are quite possible as a result. Technology may be a source of irritation, and electrical appliances may break down or not work up to par. Energy fluctuates this year. If you aren’t too rash or impulsive, you might be able to free yourself from restrictive circumstances. You could also have more courage than usual to do things that break the routine, and confrontations engaged in this year could clear the air and help you to move forward.
You are generally more practical and concerned about your future security than usual this year, although personal energy levels can fluctuate and you may experience bursts of restlessness. Relationships tend to stabilize, and you can gain much respect for your artistic talents in this period. Fuzzy thinking and misunderstandings should be watched for.
2011 is 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.
2012 will be a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time, when it is easy to enjoy life and other people. Focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure. It is likely to be a rather lighthearted year, when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a good year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out, but avoid scattering your energies.
