The Year Ahead
Forecast for December 2007 to December 2008
A Full Moon in your Solar Return chart marks this as a year of great personal significance, when major new beginnings, endings, and activities occur. This period is the culmination of a stage of personal growth and development. Events at this time may bring to a head various developments in your emotional, psychological, or spiritual life over the past several years. There can be increased activity in your professional and public life, causing a conflict with your domestic and personal goals. There is little moderation in your life this year. Connections are made or ended; or your job focus may change as one focus fades to make way for a new direction. The year ahead is certain to be a very busy, dynamic, and significant period in your life.
With Jupiter conjunct Pluto in your Solar Return chart, an increased need for shared interests with others, as well as for adventurous or risky undertakings, is with you this year as you strive for more personal significance. Benefits may come through those in authority or the government. The year ahead is one of personal growth and expansion–an ambitious time when a desire for success is especially strong. Your ability to sway or persuade others is enhanced. One of the most positive uses of this influence is a drive to better yourself. You might solve a problem that has been in existence for some time, or capitalize upon a resource that was previously hidden. Social or material goals may come into strong focus, and reform could figure this year. Your faith may be reborn or developed strongly now. You might decide to invest your time and energy (and possibly money) into an ambitious new project. You should take advantage of the increased drive this influence brings, but avoid tendencies towards self-righteousness, exaggeration, and obsession. In general, big business, the law, grants, taxes, education, and commerce are well-starred for you this year. Increased influence, faith, and insight are likely in the year ahead.
The Sun and Mercury are aligned with the above configuration, suggesting that the year ahead promises to be busy and active. Your thinking is proactive and ambitious. You not only think a lot about your ambitions and goals, but you feel the need to act them out. Your ability to express yourself and to solve problems is enhanced this year. You may have opportunities to travel, and matters related to publishing, teaching, and writing should go especially well. You may find that you have the right information at the right time this year. You could also have big ideas and plans. Work, especially in communications, goes well. You can be especially persuasive and convincing in your communications, whether written or oral. Positive trends in trade, business, and communications are likely. Your perceptions are especially acute. You can easily slip into the role of counselor or advisor. You are inclined to do a lot of digging, researching, analyzing, investigating, and getting to the bottom of things. The North Node involved with all of these planets suggests stimulating new connections made in your life that put you directly on a path to growth and fulfillment.
Pluto doesn’t quite reach a transiting conjunction to your Sun this year, but you certainly will be feeling Pluto energies in the works. Stirrings inside of you have you questioning your life path, and just how much satisfaction you are getting from life. By 2009, when Pluto is directly on the degree of your Sun, you’ll be ready to make big changes. For now, you begin to see the superficial things in your life and you wonder if you could be living life in a more rich, satisfying way.
Mars opposes Jupiter, the Sun, and Mercury. This adds quite a bit of energy to your year. Although you are bound to show great enthusiasm for your endeavors this year, over-estimating what you are capable of doing is a potential problem. You may get fired up over opposing viewpoints. Errors in judgment made now are likely due to impulsiveness and the overlooking of crucial details. Your energy levels run high this year, but you should watch for hasty or impetuous behavior. Remember that “haste makes waste”. This year is likely to be especially busy. You could be rather willful and impassioned, and it would be best to channel excess energy into healthy physical outlets. Others might find you temperamental. If you suffer from frequent headaches, it is likely that you are not dealing with your own anger or desire to take the lead appropriately. As long as you channel the excess energy constructively, instead of wasting your time arguing or getting yourself into conflicts with others, you can accomplish much.
Venus squares Neptune in your Solar Return this year. Some caution with your personal finances and regarding your social relationships is in order. Most importantly, you should do your best to watch out for tendencies towards self-deception. Things might look too good to be true, simply because you want to see the best. Relationship ups and downs are possible, as this could be a year when romantic mirages are more likely. The “highs” of a relationship may be thrilling, but the accompanying “lows” can be draining. Uncertainty may characterize your love relationships this year. Be careful not to set yourself up for disappointment. The same goes for finances. Do try to take off the rose-colored glasses when it comes to new financial initiatives and romance. If you don’t, you could be in for some disappointment when things fail to measure up to your dreams and ideals.
A power year is in your forecast. An increased desire to improve your life, and the drive for more success in general, figures in the year ahead. This is a year in which you have the desire to go for gold with determination–your ambition is stronger than usual. You are driven and motivated, but you could also be quite hasty and impatient. Try to avoid jumping into action when strategy would be more appropriate. It’s a good year for creativity and big business. Romance can sometimes be downright confusing! Overall, however, the year ahead is likely to be a productive, dynamic, and rich period of your life.
2007 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.
2008 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.
