February 5 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: February 5
The Year Ahead
Forecast for February 2008 to February 2009
With the Solar Return Moon just behind the Sun, this is a year when you are itching to do something new, but you are perhaps unsure about what that “something” is! You are likely closing important projects or “chapters” in your life. If you normally lead an active life with initiating qualities, you may feel quite restless. There may be a sense of loss, perhaps a feeling as though you are losing your identity. 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.
Venus conjuncts Jupiter in your Solar Return chart, and you are likely to find yourself more accepting and understanding of your friends and lovers. Contentedness in love is likely to figure and to attract positive circumstances (and people) into your life. This influence can indicate favorable outcomes when it comes to legal affairs, education, and travel. This year, youre bound to enjoy increased social opportunities as well as a boost in your personal popularity and magnetism. Others are looking on you favorably, particularly friends and lovers (or potential lovers). You are more friendly, optimistic, and big-hearted than usual. A cheerful and hopeful outlook increases your chances of gaining cooperation from others. This is a sociable, and perhaps self-indulgent, time when the pursuit of pleasure is one of your high priorities! You could find that you are more open and trusting of friends and lovers, and that you easily win others trust. Healthy speculation is favored. Financial benefits may come your way. Some people fall in love under this influence.
Venus-Uranus is a favorable influence for social meetings and events, and for situations that call for treating others with equality and respect. You may lose your fear of taking risks at this time, and happily embrace all that is new, unusual, and out-of-the-ordinary with regards to romantic involvements as well as financial undertakings. You are ready to experiment, but not necessarily ready to commit. This could be a good year for financial undertakings involving electronics, technology, the internet, metaphysics, and the arts, as well as group activities. You have a taste for the offbeat this year, and this energy can bring sudden or unexpected romance into your life, perhaps a scenario that feels like love at first sight. Childbirth is sometimes associated with this aspect.
With the Sun conjunct Chiron around the time of your birthday this year, you are likely to be recognized 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.
Busy, busy, busy! The Sun conjunct Mercury in your Solar Return chart suggests that you have a lot to do this year. 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.
Mercury conjunct Neptune suggests that your intuition runs high. You are more sensitive artistically, your imagination is stirred, and you have an increased appreciation for subtleties. You are inspired and could even inspire others with your words. Some of your hunches could be prophetic. You are thinking more creatively, and express yourself with more sensitivity, compassion, and warmth.
Mars forms a harmonious aspect to Neptune. You are more inclined to act upon your intuition, your sexual fantasies may be especially strong, and your creative impulses are potent. There will be times this year when you will have a “what will be, will be” attitude. This influence favors dancing, swimming, photography, arts, and entertainment. If you are an artist, this could be an especially inspired, imaginative, and productive year. Pay attention to your gut feelings, which will, more often than not, give you valuable information. If you are involved in sales, you will be able to tune into your client’s inner desires and motivations.
This year, your social life is fun and expansive. Your communications and mental output are more original and creative. In general, you are inspired–you are certainly getting in touch with the dreamier, more spiritual side of your nature. Closing important projects or chapters in your life also figures, as you make room for new beginnings.
2008 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.
2009 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.
