The Year Ahead
Forecast for February 2012 to February 2013
If You Were Born Today, February 20:
You possess poise and grace and while you may come across as very patient and calm, you can be impulsive and restless. Sensitive and concerned, partnerships mean a lot to you. You are always aware of others and their needs, and this is factored into your own decisions. You thoroughly enjoy being there for someone you love. Creative and intuitive, you are able to make something of your talents, but were not meant to focus on only one or two paths. As much as you crave security, you also need movement and small changes to keep you inspired. Famous people born today: Kurt Cobain, Cindy Crawford, Buffy Saint Marie, Gloria Vanderbilt, Sidney Poitier, Rihanna, Patty Hearst, Kelsey Grammer, Ivana Trump.
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.
This year, Neptune transits conjunct your Sun. Your tastes and desires are changing. The need to “get away from it all”, and for some peace and quiet now and again, will be strong. A more sensitive, and 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. Watch for excessive escapist tendencies, but also find ways to honor your needs for more down time, or circumstances may conspire to bring it into your life in possibly unwanted ways. Some may find the influence of Sun-Neptune 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.
Saturn transits in harmony to your Sun in October 2012 and this helps ground you. You have the power of practicality, realism, and caution on your side during this period. Work you have done in the past begins to pay off now–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. 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 begin or investments you make during this period will benefit you for years to come. The key to success is adopting a realistic, practical, disciplined, and orderly approach to your life.
There may be a project, idea, or person that demands much of your attention or occupies much of your thoughts. It’s a strong year for any project or studies that require concentrated effort. You are especially resourceful.
You are very likely to attract loving relationships and/or new warm social contacts into your life this year. Your popularity increases and efforts to smooth over challenges in partnerships are more likely to succeed. Watch, however, for overindulgence and a tendency to avoid problems in relationships by making too many concessions.
You are very sensitive and imaginative this year. Creativity is likely to be at a peak. You are especially “tuned in” to current trends and your ability to embrace the new while honoring the tried and true can be a significant key to your success this year. Your desires are evolving, and you may be changing directions in your career or with regards to your goals.
2012 is a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice – let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.
2013 will be a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.
