If Today is Your Birthday: January 12
The Year Ahead
Forecast for January 2007 to January 2008
Mars is conjunct Pluto and trine Saturn in your Solar Return chart, and your ambition is stimulated–you are determined to meet or exceed your goals. You can bring great discipline and meaning to your life this year. This is a time when dedication and commitment to your goals runs high. You tend to be more productive in a reliable and consistent way. You derive satisfaction from a job well done, especially if you can readily attach meaning to it. You are able to see yourself, and your purpose, very clearly. This is an excellent year in which to cultivate patience as well as to weed out the unnecessary in order to focus on what really matters. You may be more deliberate in how you approach taking action and going after what you want, employing strategy. Work takes on definite shape this year, and you can see results from your efforts, or at least foresee success down the road. This gives you a sense of responsibility and a feeling of directedness and purposefulness. This is a good year in which to temper your energy and to exercise better judgment, as well as to get and feel organized. At times, you may be so focused and determined that you seem obsessive. As long as you don’t neglect key areas of your life, you can harness this tremendous energy and use it on a project that improves your life. This is likely to be a year of great success and determination.
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. It will be important to avoid feelings of guilt for what you are not doing with Saturn quincunx the Sun.
A very creative configuration in your Solar Return chart promises some exciting experiences on romantic, social, and financial levels. Venus conjuncts Chiron and sextiles Jupiter. The emphasis is on developing and strengthening serious bonds with others, and this year presents opportunities to do just that! This is a year of bonding with others, and of healing past wounds that may have been undermining your attitude towards relationships now. You may have an opportunity to bring emotional closure to a past relationship. It’s time to move forward. Something big is in the works regarding your love life. You’ll have a chance to heal old wounds with regards to love this year. You’re also bound to find new ways of making money. 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 and reasonable speculation is favored. Financial benefits may come your way. Some people fall in love under this influence.
Venus also forms a dynamic aspect with Mars, suggesting that passions run high. Your affections are strongly stimulated, and you are more acutely aware of your powers of attraction. Romance, love, and sexuality occupy your mind more than usual. You can enjoy an increase in personal magnetism (as well as libido!), but be wary of competitiveness or tension in existing love relationships, as this aspect ignites your passions in general, whether they are feelings of love or anger! Pluto adds intensity to the mix, as well as some suspiciousness and more emotional drama! Venus-Pluto can be erotic and intense, but the extreme passions it arouses can also express themselves in jealousies and possessiveness. With Pluto, 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 is influenced by Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus in your Solar Return chart, and you are inclined to attach greater meaning to your experiences. A tendency to overstate, and to neglect important details when making plans–and to feel guilty for what you might be neglecting–is strong. You may have so very many ideas that you end up implementing none! You are likely to have opportunities for travel and/or new learning experiences.
Major developments in your love life and in your work are in store for you this year. Passions run high, but you are unlikely to lose focus on your goals.
2007 is a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to deal with practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
2008 will be 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.
