If Today is Your Birthday: February 24
The Year Ahead
Forecast for February 2007 to February 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.
At the time of your birthday this year, the Sun conjuncts Mercury. You have a lot to do in the period ahead! At times, you may feel like the pace of your life is running ahead of you. You can be especially productive, however, in all types of communications–writing, speaking, learning, teaching, and so forth. As long as you manage to pace yourself, this can be an especially alert, communicative, and productive year.
Venus forms hard angles to Saturn and Neptune in your Solar Return chart, affecting either your finances or romantic relationships, and possibly both areas. Uncertainty in either of these areas is the theme, but this does not necessarily point to financial or romantic losses, by all means. It might point to, for example, a variable income that goes with the territory of self-employment, or a relationship that isn’t quite as settled as you’d like it to be yet. Saturn asks you to be responsible, hard working, dutiful, and serious when it comes to finances and/or romantic relationships. Neptune, on the other hand, places a veil over your eyes, and seduces you into believing what you want to believe rather than what really is. You need to assess areas of your life that have become dysfunctional and, in the process, you may need to sacrifice a material benefit for a spiritual good (or vice versa). You are learning a valuable spiritual lesson that will help you to put your priorities in better perspective. This lesson may come in mysterious ways. Spiritual, artistic, or musical endeavors can provide a welcome relief. The final outcome will be a more serious and responsible attitude toward your own creativity and spiritual development.
With Mars in hard aspect to Uranus, this can be a year when bursts of restlessness, rebellion, and impatience figure prominently. You have a tendency to take risks and to act on sudden impulses without considering consequences. You assert your will and individuality powerfully, and you are ready to fight for freedom. There may be changes in work schedules, or life’s circumstances could challenge you in such a way that you need to change your goals or actions. This can also be a time when you tend to resist others and challenge them if they are trying to hold you back. Arguments and confrontations are likely. Technology may be a source of irritation, and electrical appliances may break down or not work up to par. Energy fluctuates this year. Anger can erupt seemingly from nowhere. If you aren’t too rash or impulsive, you might be able to free yourself from restrictive circumstances. You could also have more courage than usual to do things that break the routine, and confrontations engaged in this year could clear the air and help you to move forward.
The year ahead is bound to be especially eventful. You are itching for change–not content with the normal routine–and this basic orientation attracts unusual events that keep you on your toes. Impulsiveness might push you out of negative habit patterns, but you should probably avoid instigating change randomly just for the sake of change.
2007 is 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.
2008 will be 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.
