December 18 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: December 18
The Year Ahead
Forecast for December 2008 to December 2009
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. It promises to be a busy, dynamic, and significant period in your life.
The Sun conjuncts Mars in your Solar Return chart, and you are more active, competitive, and impassioned than usual this year. Your desire nature is strong, and increased physical activity, including sexual, is likely. Independent work is favored. Competitive activities may also thrive this year. Increased energy and enterprise are with you this year. You are more willing to go after what you want in a direct, forthright, and straightforward manner!
With Mars square to Saturn and Uranus, and Saturn transiting square to your Sun this year, however, you could be quite restless. Attempts to assert your individuality, freedom, and originality can sometimes undermine your feeling of groundedness and security. Yet, you are not satisfied when you conform. There may be sudden and unexpected twists that force you to do something different or free yourself from old habits. Striking a balance between convention and innovation is the challenge. Setbacks tend to be temporary and often lead to new, more creative paths or solutions. Ambivalence is likely and could color many of your decisions and projects. It can be challenging at times to make one particular decision and stick to it.
Mars harmonizes with Neptune, helping to soften some of the characteristics and circumstances described above. Creativity and imagination run high this year.
With Venus conjunct the Moon’s North Node, you are very likely to attract loving relationships and/or new warm social contacts into your life. Your popularity increases and efforts to smooth over challenges in partnerships are more likely to succeed. This is an excellent influence for negotiations, marriage, and business partnerships.
With Jupiter in harmonious aspect to Saturn at the time of your birthday this year, a period of constructive accomplishment is ahead. In general, you are practical, realistic, and your judgment is especially sound–and you derive much satisfaction from your work. The key to harnessing this wonderful energy is to identify and find pleasure in the simple things that make you happy. A nice balance between optimism and practicality is with you this year.
This year, you are anxious to put your plans into motion, but if you don’t focus on one or two projects at a time, you could find you’re just spinning wheels. You are certainly more enterprising this year, and taking a balanced approach to life, in terms of realistic expectations, is the best approach for maximizing success. This could be challenging at times, since you are likely feeling quite restless. Rebelliousness is a possible downfall. Attracting positive, loving relationships and friendships is likely this year.
2008 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.
2009 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.
