If Today is Your Birthday: February 6
The Year Ahead
Forecast for February 2009 to February 2010
Jupiter transiting your Sun this year indicates a greater awareness of moral issues, and a stronger than usual desire to improve and learn during this period of your life. 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 in which to seek advanced training or to further your education. Sun/Jupiter aspects often correlate with ceremonies that formally acknowledge past achievements.
The Sun semi-square Venus and Pluto in your Solar Return chart indicates a possible tendency to overdo pleasures, whether these include over-eating, over-spending, or other such matters. There is a risk of becoming obsessed or even fanatical with certain things in your life, and this is more likely to be in the areas of close personal relationships.
Venus sextile Mars in your Solar Return signifies pleasant sexual tension, libidinal attraction, and playful competitiveness in relationships this year. Romance is in the air, as this aspect increases your sensuality, sex appeal, and animal magnetism. Marriage could occur in such a year. Now is also a good time to engage in creative projects and to join with others in pursuing a common goal. If you are involved in competition, you may very well come out a winner.
However, Venus also squares Pluto. Pluto adds intensity to the mix, as well as some suspiciousness and more emotional drama! With Pluto, you are attempting to transcend the ordinary in your life. Venus-Pluto can be erotic and intense, but the extreme passions it arouses can also express themselves in jealousies and possessiveness. Jealousies are directly related to the fear of losing someone. Something tiny can trigger all sorts of buried emotions, and this can be very revealing! If you find yourself dredging up old hurts, examine the emotional “slush” you’ve been carrying around with you. Avoid taking it out on your partner or on yourself. This aspect can also suggest making a large purchase or payment and having to adjust your spending as a result.
Mercury sextiles Uranus and trines Saturn in your Return chart, suggesting steady progress in mental pursuits in your year ahead. New ideas can be effectively put into action. You are able to come up with new and exciting plans that also have grounding in reality.
A mostly optimistic attitude can carry you far this year. Mental pursuits and communications thrive. It’s an especially strong period in your life for pursuing higher learning or other methods of mind expansion. Relationships are stimulating this year. You are eager to take on a challenge and happily engage in friendly competition, although jealousies and fears in relationships are also possible.
2009 is 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.
2010 will be 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.
