The Year Ahead
Forecast for December 2008 to December 2009
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 and Neptune 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. This can be an extremely romantic influence. The year ahead could be one in which romance enters your life or is enhanced. The only real danger with this aspect is the tendency to be starry-eyed about your romantic and social relationships. Fresh beginnings on creative levels are likely. Heightened sensitivity to, and awareness of, beauty and spirituality characterize the year ahead. You are easily influenced, seducible and seductive, and given to strong powers of imagination. You are more attuned to the world of beauty and romance, and gentleness with others is the best way to harness this energy. It can certainly be a magical time on a romantic and social level, but it could also be a confusing or illusory influence as well.
Mercury in harmonious aspect to Saturn and Uranus suggests constructive improvements in your mental world. You are willing to put effort forth and are rewarded as a result.
This year, big changes are in the works. 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 believing what you want to believe rather than what really is in love and financial matters should be watched for.
2008 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.
2009 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.
