December 22 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: December 22
The Year Ahead
Forecast for December 2009 to December 2010
If You Were Born Today, December 22: You are an emotional person who is very connected to your past. You are exceptionally giving and supportive, sometimes to the point of martyrdom! You have to try not to feel resentful for all that you do for others by keeping this trait in balance. You would make an excellent counsellor. Your love life is likely very changeful. You are extremely hard-working and few can do the job as well as you. Sometimes you are impatient with others who don’t seem to have the same work ethic as you, but you must understand that few do! You can be a perfectionist. You are a wonderful combination of conservative and creative or inspired. Famous people born today: Diane Sawyer, Vanessa Paradis, Robin Gibb, Maurice Gibb, Ralph Fiennes.
Your Birthday Year Forecast: 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!
You’ve recently gone through major changes on a psychological level with Pluto transiting conjunct your Sun in the last two years. That influence has passed, and you are likely a much stronger person for it. Transiting Saturn square your Sun until August 2010 is a rather heavy and sober influence, but also one that is certain to straighten you out on some level. You’ll be working hard at disciplining yourself during this period. As you face obstacles to your goals, you begin to see the tools with which you have to overcome them. A dose of realism may seem forced upon you from time to time this year, but your efforts to measure up to expectations can ultimately increase your confidence in your ability to be responsible for yourself. You are likely to have new or increased responsibilities this year, and it might take some time to get adjusted to them. The need to re-structure and re-organize your life will be apparent at some point this year. Your ego may be a little frail at this point, and, as a result, you may be harder on yourself than you need be. Much can be accomplished this year. Although you may not see immediate results for your efforts, important groundwork can be laid for the future.
A square from transiting Uranus to the Sun starting in June 2010 keeps things exciting and changeful. You might often be tempted to throw out practical or traditional considerations in favor of more exciting or stimulating plans. Unexpected changes in plans or events can test your patience. However, they could stimulate you to try new approaches and they certainly act to cut boredom. This influence could offer you the drive to do something new, but avoid making hasty major decisions for the time being (if possible!). Your creativity is stimulated this year, but so is your excitability and your need for freedom. You are likely to be more outspoken than usual, perhaps even rebellious or on edge. Conditions that you previously accepted may seem stifling or even intolerable now, especially if they seem to restrict your freedom. Remember that your reactions are often ego-centered instead of emotion-centered. As a result, you are more inclined to act on impulse and to rebel, and it can be challenging to listen to your heart.
Jupiter and Neptune harmonize with Venus, and you are likely to find yourself more accepting and understanding of your friends and lovers. Legal affairs, education, and travel may bring rewards. You are more imaginative and attuned to the world of beauty and romance this year. There could be truly “magical” times on a romantic and social level. Social opportunities might increase, and a boost in your personal popularity and magnetism is also likely. You are more friendly, optimistic, and big-hearted than usual. Some people fall in love under this influence. Venus in square to Uranus as well, however, 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.
Mercury conjunct the Moon’s North Node and sextile Uranus suggests making contact through learning, communicating, and mental pursuits. It suggests an intellectually stimulating year in which the exchange of ideas with others figures prominently. You may find more opportunities to attend meetings and other organized group activities, to communicate online, and to take part in activities involving computers or scientific projects. Unexpected gains may be realized through these things. Your intuition is strong, and insights seem to come from “out of the blue”. Original, creative ideas are easy to come by this year.
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.
The year ahead is a pivotal one for you–one in which you are making many changes and in which surprises seem to be around every corner! Romance is highly favored this year, although changeful and erratic at times. New contacts are helpful. There are times when you overestimate your energy levels, so that pacing yourself is necessary. As long as you avoid rebelling only for the sake of it, the changes this year brings to your personality can be important and uplifting.
2009 is 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.
2010 will be a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.
