December 23 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: December 23
The Year Ahead
Forecast for December 2011 to December 2012
If You Were Born Today, December 23:
This is one of the more charming birthdays of the year, although it can also be one that uses that charm for personal gain! This is natural to a degree, but some of you will take this too far, while others will keep it in check. Some of you will find ways to market your ability to gain others’ confidence. You are a determined person with strong personal presence and magnetism. Your relationships and friendships tend to be unusual, or the people you attract into your life are an eclectic bunch. You are truly talented, creative, and mostly very considerate of others. Famous people born today: Harry Shearer, Corey Haim, Susan Lucci, Chet Baker, Eddie Vedder.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The Moon is in its Balsamic phase in your Solar Return chart, marking this year the end of an important cycle, or stage of growth, in your life. You take more “down time” than normal, and this is natural, even good for you. This is a year when you are likely closing important projects or “chapters” in your life. You may be itching to do something new, but you are perhaps unsure about what that “something” is! The year, in a general sense, is best used as a meditative time for inner searching. It is a time for letting go of the past in order to prepare for the new. Although the new is still totally unrecognizable, it is important to allow the necessary surrender to the unknown.
Neptune transits sextile to your Sun this year. A higher purpose to your life is what you seek, and you rely more heavily upon your intuition in order to achieve it. You could find that your intuition is subtly enhanced and that you’re often in the right place at the right time, probably because your hunches are more likely to be correct. This aspect softens your disposition somewhat, as you tune into your imaginative and artistic side. This is a good year for self-improvement programs or efforts. The need to “get away from it all” — for some peace and quiet now and again — will be strong. A more sensitive–even mysterious–persona is projected this year, and this can attract pleasantly unusual circumstances (and people) into your life. You will want to reserve time alone–away from the hectic pace of life–for reflection and meditation.
Later in the year, from October 2012 forward, Saturn transits sextile to your Sun – a very different influence but also quite positive as the one above. This influence brings more practicality to your mindest, and it helps you to keep your feet on the ground. Work you have done in the past begins to pay off — not necessarily in dramatic ways, but in small, measurable ways. You may be recognized or rewarded in some way for the efforts you put forth. Because you project a more responsible and credible “you”, people in authority are more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work. Your concern for your future during this period is stronger than usual, and you may find that projects you start, or investments you make, will benefit you for years to come. The key to success is adopting a realistic, practical, disciplined, and orderly approach to your life.
This is an excellent year in which to advance projects revolving around communications – writing, speaking, selling, and so forth. Your reputation may be enhanced through word of mouth. Making new contacts through learning and mental pursuits figures strongly as well.
Love and romance are a big part of your life this year, but you could encounter problems due to overblown expectations or excessive behavior. You may overindulge your various appetites whether for social intercourse, food, sex, candy, alcohol, or whatever tickles your fancy. Find a way to strike a balance between self-gratification and the obligations of daily life. You may lose your fear of taking risks this year on a social level, and happily embrace all that is new, unusual, and out-of-the-ordinary with regards to romantic involvements as well as financial undertakings. You are ready to experiment, although not necessarily ready to commit. You have a taste for the offbeat this year, and this energy can bring sudden or unexpected romance into your life, perhaps a scenario that feels like love at first sight.
Jupiter in creative aspect to Neptune suggests that making connections with others from a different background is likely to figure in the year ahead. Widening your mind through unusual or different experiences can be part of the picture. Generosity and compassion increases, and your faith is boosted. You more easily make personal sacrifices for what you believe to be the better good.
You have the opportunity to turn dreams into reality this year with a nice balance of creativity and realism. You are likely to make new contacts with people who further your learning, and communications projects can thrive in the period ahead. Socially and financially, you should watch for a tendency towards extravagance, but you are likely to find new ways of expressing yourself.
2011 is a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time, when it is easy to enjoy life and other people. Focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure. It is likely to be a rather lighthearted year, when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a good year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out, but avoid scattering your energies.
2012 will be 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. Positive new relationships are generally not formed in a Four personal year. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
