If Today is Your Birthday: January 14
The Year Ahead
Forecast for January 2007 to January 2008
The Sun in harmonious aspect to the Moon in your Solar Return chart is a pleasant aspect, suggesting that your domestic and career needs are not in competition with one another this year. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa. You are likely to be on top of your game this year for the most part, and positive connections with others can be made rather easily. A comfortable level of personal popularity helps to keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there will be less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you.
Mars is conjunct Pluto 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 powerful influence that helps you focus on your goals, take decisive action, and go after what you want. You won’t take “no” for an answer this year. You might totally revise an important project or area of your life, or you could be bent on getting rid of something in your life in order to move forward. The tendency to be too forceful or willful this year should probably be avoided. You should also watch for overdoing to the point of exhaustion. This can be a compulsive time when power struggles are more likely. On the other hand, it can be a time when you enjoy a strong sense of purposefulness, focus, and determination.
The Sun forms a tense angle to both Jupiter and Uranus around the time of your birthday this year, suggesting that the desire to expand and explore is very strong this year. Freedom is what you seek, and how you deal with this issue is the key to how this influence will play out. If you recognize your need for changes in key areas of your life and adapt accordingly, this can be an exciting year of discovery. However, if you resist change and insist on keeping things status quo, you are bound to feel very restless, tense, and rebellious. Still, making healthy changes should be the focus–change for the sake of change is not what you should be concentrating on. Do your best to think before you leap. Situations in your life that seem to curtail your freedom could be hard to handle now. Spontaneity, not impulsiveness, is the key to success this year.
Some exciting experiences on romantic, social, and financial levels are in store. Venus sextiles Jupiter and semi-squares both Mars and Pluto. 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! Financial benefits may come your way. Some people fall in love under this influence. Passions run high, and your affections are strongly stimulated. 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 configuration 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 challenged by Jupiter 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. Your mind is working at top speed this year. This means you can get a whole lot done, but it also suggests that you may not be paying attention to important details. Others may not get your ideas or opinions. Your senses are stimulated, and you could have sudden flashes of insight or fresh new ideas. You may be a little scatter-brained under this influence, and you could find it challenging to deal with routine matters or monotonous tasks. Learning new things is your passion this year–not recycling old ideas or performing repetitive processes.
The year ahead is sure to be an active one. Your emotions are especially intense, and your desire nature strong. Pouring your energy into a new project or resolution is a good idea now, when determination and persistence are easy to come by.
2007 is 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.
2008 will be a Number Seven year for you. Ruled by Neptune. This is a year of preparation, chance, and refinement. It is not a time of dramatic changes. Instead, it’s a year when reflection on the past is helpful, and when refinements to your life path should be made. It’s a good year to study and analyze. Unexpected twists to your life story and “chance” meetings are probable. Advice – take stock of your life in order to prepare for more exciting years to come, examine the past and plan for the future, get in touch with your deepest needs and uncover your personal power, don’t strain yourself or actively try to expand.
