The Year Ahead
Forecast for December 2008 to December 2009
The Sun in harmonious aspect to the Moon in your Solar Return chart is a pleasant aspect, suggesting that your domestic and career needs are not in competition with one another this year. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa. You are likely to 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 keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there will be less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!
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!
Pluto is transiting conjunct your Sun this year, marking a period in which you are re-defining your basic personality and life path. Your personal goals come up for evaluation, and you may find that you are becoming a “new” person in many ways. There may be some event that leads you to uncover a stronger “you”. Frustrations on the job or in your personal life are likely to enforce some kind of positive change. This is an extremely creative and dynamic year when you should expect to make some significant changes in your life. Some struggles are more than likely as you forge a new identity and life path. Something has to change, and change it will! Your best bet is to avoid resisting change, simply because resistance tends to attract chaos. The result will be a re-worked and re-defined “you”. You are likely to feel more willful than ever. You are passionate this year, and feelings of resentment, frustration, and even outrage are more easily stimulated. You may face some roadblocks and conflicts in your work, with authority figures, or with key males in your life. These roadblocks are certainly not insurmountable–in fact, they arrive in your life so that you can find new ways of expressing yourself. You are turning over a whole new leaf. All that is superficial simply will not do it for you anymore. Your sense of self, where you are headed in life, and your relationships come up for serious inspection. What you don’t need, what doesn’t satisfy you on a deep level–these things need to be re-worked or they need to go. You are called to take control of your life. Situations that have made you feel helpless or ineffective to date will no longer be tolerated. This transit is an empowering one. By the transit’s end, you will feel considerably more in control of your life. You will have a more intimate relationship with yourself and your needs, and you will have uncovered your own strength and power. You may not see it while you’re in the midst of it all, but you’re sure to look back on the year as a memorable one that led to self-discovery and clear opportunities to make your mark on the world.
With Venus conjunct Chiron in your Return chart, something big is in the works regarding your love life. You’ll have a chance to heal old wounds with regards to love this year. You’re also bound to find new ways of making money.
Still, Venus is in hard aspect to Pluto. Pluto adds intensity to the mix, as well as some suspiciousness and emotional drama! With Pluto, you also attempt to transcend the ordinary in your life. Venus-Pluto can be erotic and intense, but the extreme passions it arouses can also express themselves in jealousies and possessiveness. With Pluto, jealousies are directly related to the fear of losing someone. Something tiny can trigger all sorts of buried emotions, and this can be very revealing! If you find yourself dredging up old hurts, examine the emotional “slush” you’ve been carrying around with you. Avoid taking it out on your partner or on yourself. This aspect can also suggest making a large purchase or payment and having to adjust your spending as a result.
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 intense this year, as you seek to sort out what behaviors and situations are the most authentic for you. Attracting healing, loving relationships and friendships is likely this year, but suspiciousness should be watched for.
2008 is a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It’s generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice – take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.
2009 will be a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice – let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.
