If Today is Your Birthday: February 14
The Year Ahead
Forecast for February 2007 to February 2008
The Sun conjuncts Neptune around the time of your birthday this year, and you are likely to find that your intuition is subtly enhanced. 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. You may often rely on your instinctual judgment. 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, prayer, and meditation. Some may find this influence confusing, however, because they don’t know exactly where they are headed. A noncommittal attitude in your personal life could leave people in your life feeling frustrated with you as you attempt to find yourself. If this is the case, it would be wise to cut yourself some slack (not too much!). During this time, you may be unsure where to direct your willpower. You could be undergoing confusion about what you want from life, where you are headed, and how to go about satisfying your ego. There is a reason behind this “identity crisis”–you are learning to let go of ego attachments.
With Saturn opposing your Solar Return Sun as well, 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.
Saturn and Neptune’s influences are contradictory. While a part of you is attempting to see things for what they are, another part is hanging onto dreams and ideals. Some disillusionments and reality shifts are bound to be a part of your life this year.
You get some help from Pluto’s sextile to the Sun, offering some purposefulness and increased chances of success in your endeavors. Others are bound to recognize your leadership skills and talents, or, at the very least, your potential. You are motivated to get to the bottom of matters. You might find that superficial goals no longer satisfy you. You want your life path and your objectives to reflect what you’re really about, and you are likely to rid yourself of unsatisfying goals this year.
With Mercury conjunct Uranus in your Return chart, there are bound to be some surprises in store. Your thinking is more clever and original this year, and there may be unanticipated opportunities for travel or “armchair” travel, as well as new friendships. You are able to come up with original solutions to existing problems, and brand new ideas, more readily this year. Unusual, sudden, or eye-opening connections to younger people are likely to figure.
Mercury also forms a creative angle to Pluto at the time of your birthday this year, suggesting that you stand to gain increased insight, psychological understanding and awareness, and focused attention. You are inclined to do a lot of “digging,” researching, analyzing, investigating, and getting to the bottom of things. Increased psychological awareness of yourself and others can benefit you greatly, and employing strategy in your decision making is easier than usual this year. Relationships with younger people may be especially rewarding and meaningful.
Venus is sextile Mars and quincunx Saturn in your Solar Return chart. Pleasant sexual tension, libidinal attraction, and playful competitiveness in relationships are also themes. Romance is in the air, and your sensuality, sex appeal, and animal magnetism are increased. Now is also a good time to engage in creative projects and to join with others in pursuing a common goal. If you are involved in competition, you could come out a winner. However, there can be times when you feel your love nature is strong but hard to express this year. Awkwardness in social situations is the result of over-thinking.
With Venus also conjunct the Moon’s North Node, you are very likely to attract loving relationships and/or new warm social contacts into your life. Your popularity increases and efforts to smooth over challenges in partnerships are more likely to succeed. This is an excellent influence for negotiations, marriage, and business partnerships.
Mars in challenging aspect to Saturn suggests some ups and downs in the year ahead due to your plans and efforts meeting with resistance. At times, circumstances seem to block your efforts to assert yourself, and you might feel like more effort than usual is required to complete tasks, which could lead to some frustration. Patience is necessary because progress may not always be steady, and energy can be stop and go.
The year ahead is one of creative challenges, increased social activity, and inventive ideas as well as circumstances. Measurable, steady progress can be made as long as you don’t push too hard, too fast.
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.
