If Today is Your Birthday: January 16
The Year Ahead
Forecast for January 2007 to January 2008
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.
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. The year, in a general sense, 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.
Nevertheless, 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 focus and determination.
Venus conjunct Neptune in your Solar Return can be an extremely romantic influence. This could be a year in which romance enters your life or is enhanced. The only real danger with this aspect is the tendency to be starry-eyed about your romantic and social relationships. Fresh beginnings on creative levels are likely. Heightened sensitivity to, and awareness of, beauty and spirituality characterize the year ahead. You are easily influenced, seducible and seductive, and given to strong powers of imagination. You are more attuned to the world of beauty and romance, and gentleness with others is the best way to harness this energy. It can certainly be a magical time on a romantic and social level, but it could also be a confusing or illusory influence as well. You might also experience some confusion regarding financial affairs this year.
Restlessness may be your biggest enemy this year, unless you use it well by making important changes in your life. There can be starry-eyed romance, and taking off the rose-colored glasses from time to time can only help you to deal with the realities of friendship. This is an excellent year in which to quit a bad habit.
2007 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.
2008 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.
