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.
This is an excellent year in which to advance projects revolving around communications – writing, speaking, selling, and so forth. Your reputation may be enhanced through word of mouth. Making new contacts through learning and mental pursuits figures strongly as well.
You are especially friendly, expressive, and warm-hearted this year, and you are able to nurture others with your words, ideas, and conduct. You are more able to juggle many different projects and commitments. This can be a year of much learning and sharing, mind expansion, higher education, and possibly travel if you are so inclined.
You are more imaginative and attuned to the world of beauty and romance in the year ahead. Gentleness with others is the best way to attract what you want into your life. There could be truly “magical” times on a romantic and social level. You are especially romantic this year, and you are likely to idealize and expand a relationship through sensitive interactions and a more giving approach. There can be frequent trips down memory lane, forgiveness or increased understanding of past problems with the people in your life, and a generally “dreamy” attitude towards relationships. Benefits come through paying attention to your dreams and intuitions, as well as through creativity. Your intuition is generally powerful when it comes to money-making ideas.
With Mars conjunct Saturn in your Solar Return chart, you are more determined and hard-working than usual. Circumstances are such that you need to take care of business, and as a result, you can have a very serious disposition at times. This is an excellent period for getting organized and for sticking with projects through to the end. When you face obstacles to your goals, which is a likely scenario this year, you are likely to just keep on pushing. Progress may be slow, but it’s steady and solid. What you accomplish now will benefit you for years to come.
Learning, traveling, and communications are favored this year, and favorable new contacts can be made through these things. Your love of beauty and romance is enhanced this year, but you also possess good work ethic and you are more thorough and able to see things through to completion. While there can be some magical times on a social or romantic level, circumstances are such that you need to take care of business and apply yourself to practical matters.
2012 is a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to deal with practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
2013 will be 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.
