The Year Ahead
Forecast for February 2012 to February 2013
If You Were Born Today, February 22:
While sensitive and concerned with others’ welfare, you are not afraid to be different. In fact, many of you feel a “calling” early in life, or feel special or different. This can lead you on an unusual path, but always a very expressive one. Your ideas are unique and creative, and you feel compelled to share them! In fact, you can be very persuasive and intriguing. Many of the choices you make in life are altruistic ones. Famous people born today: George Washington, Ted Kennedy, Drew Barrymore, Steve Irwin, Sybil Leek.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The New Moon in your Solar Return chart suggests that you will instinctively begin a new phase of your life this year. A decisively new direction has come about in your life. This can be an emotionally stimulating time in which you feel the urge to initiate and project, even if you are not quite clear about what you are projecting. Much of the energy in your life can have a magical quality to it as things are just automatically going in a certain direction. It is important to be intuitive at this time and allow the natural course to show you the way to the next step. Surprises (mostly very pleasant) pepper your year. New beginnings are in order, and you are bound to feel some level of excitement as the year unfolds.
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 and November 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.
The year ahead is one of new beginnings. You are very sensitive and imaginative this year, and 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 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.
2013 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.
