If Today is Your Birthday: February 9
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.
The Sun conjuncts Neptune around the time of your birthday this year, 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. With Saturn opposing your Solar Return Sun as well, a dose of realism may seem forced upon you from time to time this year, but your efforts to measure up to expectations can ultimately increase your confidence in your ability to be responsible for yourself. You are likely to have new or increased responsibilities this year, and it might take some time to get adjusted to them. The need to re-structure and re-organize your life will be apparent at some point this year.
Saturn and Neptune’s influences are contradictory. While a part of you is attempting to see things for what they are, another part is hanging onto dreams and ideals. Some disillusionments and reality shifts are bound to be a part of your life this year.
Venus is conjunct Uranus, sextile Mars, and square Jupiter in your Solar Return chart. 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. Your love nature is strong, but given to extremes at times. Over-inflated expectations is something to watch out for. You may overvalue something (or someone), perhaps in an attempt to dramatize your life. This year, you often feel quite sociable, in the mood to party, dramatic, extravagant, and inclined to overindulge as a result of a feeling of inner discontent and a desire for more from life than daily routines. Pleasant sexual tension, libidinal attraction, and playful competitiveness in relationships are also themes. Romance is in the air, as these influences increase 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 could come out a winner.
With Venus also conjunct the Moon’s North Node, you are very likely to attract loving relationships and/or new warm social contacts into your life. Your popularity increases and efforts to smooth over challenges in partnerships are more likely to succeed. This is an excellent influence for negotiations, marriage, and business partnerships.
With Mercury conjunct Uranus in your Return chart, there are bound to be some surprises in store. Your thinking is more clever and original this year, and there may be unanticipated opportunities for travel or armchair travel, as well as new friendships. You are able to come up with original solutions to existing problems, and brand new ideas, more readily this year. Unusual, sudden, or eye-opening connections to younger people are likely to figure.
Making new connections to others seemingly out of the blue, coming up with inventive ideas, and unanticipated opportunities characterize the year ahead. While there is likely to be some confusion regarding your life path, your mind is open to new possibilities and your heart is hungry for adventure. Breaking the routine is a given this year.
2007 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.
2008 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.
