If Today is Your Birthday: December 24
The Year Ahead
Forecast for December 2009 to December 2010
If You Were Born Today, December 24: You are extremely caring and responsible with those you love. You are determined and stubborn at times, sometimes struggling with worries and insecurities. You have true respect for anything that has withstood the test of time, and for (most of) those older than you. You are excellent with design and anything that requires order and balance, as you have an eye for these things. You have all of the ingredients for attracting financial success. Famous people born today: Ava Gardner, Ricky Martin, Stephenie Meyer, Mary Higgins Clark.
Your Birthday Year Forecast: When a Quarter Moon occurs in your Return chart, as it does this year, you are at some sort of a turning point in your life, in terms of personal growth. Events that occur this year act as catalysts that get you in touch with some important issues in your emotional life. Your emotions run high, and mood swings or identity crises are possible. There may be some kind of conflict in your life arising from a great urge to do something different. The year ahead promises to be a busy, dynamic, and significant period in your life.
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.
Again this year, Pluto is transiting conjunct your Sun, marking a period in which you are re-defining your basic personality and life path. This influence passes for you in October/November 2010. 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.
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.
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 challenges and surprises seem to be around every corner! Social contacts and romance are rewarding and unusual. There are times when you overestimate your energy levels, so that pacing yourself is necessary. Mental projects and studies fare especially well. Major restructuring of your life will help you to clear your head and to get your priorities straight.
2009 is a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is less active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract both things and people. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice – be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect.
2010 will be 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.
