February 1 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: February 1
The Year Ahead
Forecast for February 2011 to February 2012
If You Were Born Today, February 1: You are strong-minded and often quite stubborn when it comes to sticking to your point of view. You are a highly original person who can be impulsive and self-willed. You are also very magnetic and easy to look up to. You love to start new things, but don’t always have the follow through to complete them! However, you are very strong at coming up with new ideas and having the courage to act upon them. You are artistic and creative, and you remain youthful throughout life. Famous people born today: Lisa Marie Presley, Rick James, Brandon Lee, Langston Hughes, Clark Gable.
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 usual, and this is natural – even good for you. 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.
In the first half of the year, you benefit from Saturn transiting trine to your Sun, which helps you to focus on your goals. This transit is a stabilizing one–others know they can rely on you, and you on them. Your vision is all the more realistic now, and pleasingly so. You work steadily and determinedly towards your goals. Authority figures and elders tend to look favorably upon you. This is a period in which 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 is stronger than usual, and you may find that projects you start, or investments you make, during this period will benefit you for years to come.
You are especially interested in setting goals and challenges for yourself this year, and taking the necessary action to meet them. You may meet or interact with others who encourage or inspire you in some way to have more confidence in yourself. Your energy levels are generally strong this year, and your sense of timing better than usual. You tend to instinctively know the right course of action to take in most situations. Your desire nature is strong, and increased physical activity, including sexual, is likely. Independent work is favored and competitive activities may also thrive this year. Joie de vivre and increased energy can truly enhance your life in many ways, not only because you are more able to enjoy life this way, but also because others sense your dynamism and you are likely to attract good things to you as a result. You could be rather wilful and impassioned, and it would be best to channel excess energy into healthy physical outlets instead of wasting your time arguing or getting yourself into conflicts with others.
There is a bit of the crusader in you this year, and you will vigorously defend anything and anyone that you love.
This is a strong year for learning and communications. 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, science, or metaphysics. Relationships with younger people in your life are rewarding. A subject or even a person can be especially inspiring, prompting you to explore new perspectives.
When it comes to romance and your social life, there is an exciting quality to your life this year. Your affections are strongly stimulated, and you are more acutely aware of your powers of attraction. Romance, love, and sexuality occupy your mind more than usual. You can enjoy an increase in personal magnetism (as well as libido!), but be wary of competitiveness or tension in existing love relationships, as this aspect ignites your passions in general, whether they’re feelings of love or anger! Some disruptions in your friendships and attachments are possible. Unusual attractions (to people and things) can have you acting on a whim. You may deal with freedom versus closeness issues in your relationships.
You have a great need for action this year and can easily get yourself motivated to go after what you want. Extra physical outlets for excess energy are a good idea, or else you can quickly become agitated or restless. You readily help and support others and this fills a need, but try to avoid defensiveness. You are quick to take the lead and to take charge this year, so that independent work is favored. Your romantic and social life is likely to be highly stimulating and a bit of a rollercoaster ride!
2011 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.
2012 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.
