The Year Ahead
Forecast for December 2007 to December 2008
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. It promises to be a busy, dynamic, and significant period in your life.
With the Sun trine Saturn in your Solar Return chart, work you have done begins to pay off this year. 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 tend to be more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work. This is a year when you put your life in order in some significant manner. Improved concentration, a more realistic outlook, and a practical awareness of the limits of time all help you to make steady progress, particularly in your career. Your concern for your future this year is stronger than usual, and you may find that projects you start, or investments you make, this year will benefit you for years to come. The key to success this year is adopting a realistic, practical, disciplined, and orderly approach to your life.
Mars opposes Jupiter and Pluto at the time of your birthday, adding quite a bit of intense 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”. Mars opposition Pluto in your Solar Return suggests that you have powerful, transformative energy at your disposal this year, and much will depend on how you handle it. Channeled positively, you could move mountains when it comes to pushing your projects ahead. If mishandled, however, you could be argumentative, stressed, and hell-bent on having your way! Avoid taking extreme measures to make things happen your way, and avoid people who might be doing same. Deliberately trying to maneuver things in order to get the upper hand will be a lesson in frustration.
There may be unexpected and pleasant news this year that enhances your life. You are able to find new insight into old problems, and your thinking processes during this period are likely to be especially original. This is a good year for projects involving technology or New Age topics. You may find more opportunities to attend meetings and other organized group activities, to communicate online, and to take part in activities involving computers, scientific projects, or metaphysics. Unexpected gains may be realized through such mediums. Your intuition is strong, and insights seem to come from “out of the blue”. Original, creative ideas are easy to come by this year.
With Mars trine the Moon’s North Node, you may be actively involved with teamwork and collaboration with others this year. This can also indicate an increased need for sexual union, as it stirs the passions and generally indicates ease in satisfying one’s desires through positive connections with others. This aspect is one indication of getting engaged, married, the beginning of a significant new relationship, or the intensification of an existing romance.
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.
You are driven and motivated this year, but you could also be quite hasty and impatient. Try to avoid jumping into action when strategy would be more appropriate. You are willful, ambitious, and determined to not only meet your goals, but to exceed them. Channeling excess energy into physical activity can help. Avoiding manipulative tactics and power games is important. Recognition for your accomplishments is forthcoming, and adopting a thoughtful and disciplined approach to life works wonders for you. Hard work truly pays off this year!
2007 is a Number Seven year for you. Ruled by Neptune. This is a year of preparation, chance, and refinement. It is not a time of dramatic changes. Instead, it’s a year when reflection on the past is helpful, and when refinements to your life path should be made. It’s a good year to study and analyze. Unexpected twists to your life story and “chance” meetings are probable. Advice – take stock of your life in order to prepare for more exciting years to come, examine the past and plan for the future, get in touch with your deepest needs and uncover your personal power, don’t strain yourself or actively try to expand.
2008 will be 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.
