The Year Ahead
Forecast for December 2009 to December 2010
If You Were Born Today, December 17: You are a leader at heart–whether you choose to lead or not, others naturally follow, turning to you for insightful and unique advice as well. You are articulate and sociable, and while a breezy manner might suggest otherwise, you have a strong business sense and possess keen organizational skills. You also admire others with a strong work ethic and may easily go into business with a romantic partner. Intuitive and compassionate, you have a philosophical or religious side to you that is not always immediately apparent. Famous people born today: Bill Pullman, Penelope Houston, William Saffire, Milla Jovovich.
Your Birthday Year Forecast: The New Moon in your Solar Return chart suggests that you will instinctively begin a new phase of your life this year. A decisively new direction has come about in your life. This can be an emotionally stimulating time in which you feel the urge to initiate and project, even if you are not quite clear about what you are projecting. Much of the energy in your life can have a magical quality to it as things are just automatically going in a certain direction. It is important to be intuitive at this time and allow the natural course to show you the way to the next step. Surprises (mostly very pleasant) pepper your year. New beginnings are in order, and you are bound to feel some level of excitement as the year unfolds.
Self-confidence and action are highlighted in the year ahead, with the Sun trine Mars and sextile Jupiter in your Solar Return chart. You tend to instinctively know the right course of action to take in most situations. Your desire nature is strong, and increased physical activity, including sexual, is likely. Independent work is favored and competitive activities may also thrive this year. Joie de vivre and increased energy can truly enhance your life in many ways, not only because you are more able to enjoy life this way, but also because others sense your dynamism and you are likely to attract good things to you as a result. Stress is eased as you feel more confident about your abilities and your judgment. Also, you are more able to assert yourself without rubbing people the wrong way. Some form of recognition for your work or for past good deeds may be forthcoming this year. Fortunate circumstances arise from a positive attitude as well as sincere self-expression. A square from Uranus to the Sun keeps things exciting and changeful this year, but transiting Uranus is passing its square to your Sun in March 2010 and the kind of high energy change you’ve been experiencing in the last year is winding down.
The Sun also harmonizes with Chiron and Neptune. A higher purpose to your life is what you seek, and you rely more heavily upon your intuition in order to achieve it. You are likely to be recognized for your more unique qualities. Your personal magnetism runs quite high. You have the chance to improve your relationships with othersand with yourself! A humbly confident approach to life earns you respect. You tend to be looked upon favorably by others. You have the chance to shine, largely because you are projecting yourself with self-respect and modesty at once. You are especially appealing and charming just by being yourself. Opportunitiesboth personal and professionalare likely to present themselves as a result. You are not looking for credit for what you do, which frees you up to get it anyhow! Teaching others may be part of the picture, informally or formally.
Venus also trines Mars, and pleasant and playful competitiveness in relationships is likely. Romance is in the air, as this aspect increases your sensuality, sex appeal, and animal magnetism. Now is also a good time to engage in creative projects and to join with others in pursuing a common goal. If you are involved in competition, you could come out a winner. Venus in square to Uranus adds an erratic and abrupt or changeful spin to your love life and/or your attitude towards spending.
Great enthusiasm is likely to be with you often this year, but you might sometimes overestimate your abilities. You may get fired up over opposing viewpoints. Errors in judgment made now are likely due to impulsiveness and the overlooking of crucial details. It will certainly be wise to keep your feet on the ground. Energy and mood fluctuations are expected to figure strongly in the year ahead. Conserve energy whenever you can.
Saturn is square to Pluto in your Solar Return chart. This suggests a need for you to come to terms with your own powers of authority and your effectiveness. Power struggles, frustration, and manipulation are possible themes this year. You may desire change, but feel blocked by others or by circumstances. Alternatively, you may be attempting to resist change that is inevitable. Persistence will pay off in the end, and the need to adjust your expectations becomes obvious.
Jupiter conjunct Chiron and Neptune in your Solar Return chart suggests that idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses have more significance in your life this year. You may experience an increased need for greater understanding, wisdom, and awareness, as well as increased interest in the healing arts and holistic health this year. It may be a time during which you reconsider or revamp your personal belief system. Everyday, ordinary life may not always satisfy, as you hunger for a more idealistic life.
New beginnings and fresh energy are with you in the year ahead. There is a sense that you are starting a new chapter in your life. Warmth in your social life and increased energy levels contribute to success this year. Romance is highly favored this year, although changeful and erratic at times. There are times when you overestimate your energy levels, so that pacing yourself is necessary. Increased confidence, as long as it is not overdone, helps you in all of life’s departments.
2009 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.
2010 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.
