If Today is Your Birthday: February 3
The Year Ahead
Forecast for February 2007 to February 2008
Your birthday falls just after a Full Moon this year, suggesting a period of communication and teaching. You may be turned to for advice more frequently, and you are very willing to offer your help. This is a strong year for publicity and any other endeavors that involve spreading the word. As well, your ability to be objective–or to see the “big picture”–can be especially rewarding this year.
With the Sun conjunct Chiron around the time of your birthday this year, you are likely to receive recognition for your more unique qualities. Your personal magnetism runs quite high. You have the chance to improve your relationships with others–and with yourself! A humbly confident approach to life earns you respect. You tend to be looked upon favorably by others. You have the chance to shine, largely because you are projecting yourself with self-respect and modesty at once. You are especially appealing and charming just by being yourself. Opportunitiesboth personal and professionalare likely to present themselves as a result. You are not looking for credit for what you do, which frees you up to get it anyhow! Teaching others may be part of the picture, informally or formally. The Sun also conjuncts Neptune, and you are likely to find that your intuition is subtly enhanced. Youre 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.
The Sun also forms a pleasing angle to Jupiter in your Solar Return, suggesting that you are more aware of moral issues, and have a stronger than usual desire to improve and learn, this year. This is a fortunate aspect that suggests optimism and confidence are with you, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve this year. Your social life will likely increase and bring you in contact with more influential, powerful, or simply happy and helpful people. Travel opportunities are likely. It is not uncommon to marry, have children, graduate college, increase income, do freelance work, get a promotion, publish a book, or receive public recognition under this influence. Matters related to universities, higher education, organized religion, publishing, legal affairs, and foreign interests proceed smoothly. This is an excellent year to seek advanced training or to further your education. Sun/Jupiter aspects often correlate with ceremonies that formally acknowledge past achievements.
Pluto is also involved with the Sun, however, and the aspect is a tense one. This suggests that some obsessive behavior is possible–perhaps you are trying to cling to a behavior that suited you in the past, but that has now outgrown its purpose or is in need of an overhaul. You are likely to experience events that highlight the necessity to share and trust. This year, events and circumstances are such that you learn about your own personal strength. You may have to deal with willfulness and issues of power and competition–in others and in yourself. This challenging aspect actually helps you this year because of the predominance of easy aspects–it gives you a little more drive to realize the opportunities coming your way.
Mars in harmonious aspect to Uranus suggests bursts of creativity and energy that help you to further your goals. Healthy risk-taking is likely this year, as you are more able to spot an opportunity when you see one. It is easier than usual to break free from habits that have previously held you back from going after what you want in life.
Venus is conjunct Uranus, although on the wide side so this influence is not as strong as the influences above. Whirlwind changes in your love life and/or financial state are possible. It may be that you experience sudden changes or breakups with a friend or lover. However, the chance of a sudden new friendship is just as likely. At the root of this is a stronger taste for the unusual. What is familiar is less exciting to you than what is new and different. If a relationship seems to threaten your sense of freedom, you may have an easy time separating from it this year. Some fireworks in both your social and financial lives are to be expected.
Others will notice a change in how you present yourself this year. You are likely to be more philosophical, compassionate, and spiritual than usual during this cycle. Teaching and communicating opportunities figure strongly. New ways to direct your energy open up doors for you. A more upbeat social life is also likely as your open mind leads you to venture forth along new paths.
2007 is a Number Five year for you. Ruled by Mercury. This is a year of exploration and freedom. It’s a time when exploration and reaching out to others brings opportunities. It’s a good time to advertise and sell. Surprises are in store, and the routine is broken. This is a year when exciting relationships can be formed, or, if you are already in a partnership, new life is breathed into the relationship. Advice – explore, look for adventure, keep your eyes open for opportunities, mingle.
2008 will be a Number Six year for you. Ruled by Venus. This is a year of relative contentment. It is a time when love is the easiest to attract, and partnerships formed under this vibration have a better chance for longevity. You are able to attract others, and material things as well, this year. This is a good year for establishing harmony in the family and in the home. Advice – develop existing relationships, be positive and receptive because these kinds of energies help you to attract what you desire.
