The Year Ahead
Forecast for January 2016 to January 2017
If You Were Born Today, January 16:
You are playful yet ambitious. While security is extremely important to you, so is personal freedom and you have a very determined, self-centered streak. You are smart, a little defiant at times, and very convincing and persuasive. There is certainly a bit of an entertainer in you, even those of you who are on the shy side. While you are a real thinker and dreamer, you are also a doer. You are spiritual and always aware that life is about something much more than the mundane. Famous people born today: Ethel Merman, Dizzy Dean, Sade, Kate Moss, Gabrielle Reece, Aaliyah, Debbie Allen.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
Your birthday occurs around a First Quarter Moon this year, and you are reaching an important turning point in terms of personal growth. You may be more emotional this year, and should watch for unnecessary conflicts and making hasty decisions as a result. Otherwise, this is a year of great energy, motivation, and growth. You are more ambitious and desirous of action in the year ahead. This should be a busy, dynamic period in your life.
You are likely to be popular with others when it comes to your ideas and communications, especially as you are communicating with optimism and cheerfulness, and this can bring rewarding experiences and opportunities into your life.
There is the ability to see what you’ve accomplished with more maturity, and as a result, your ability to plan for the future is enhanced.
You are more inclined to act upon your intuition this year, and your creative impulses are potent. You have an influence with you that acts to soften your disposition, smoothing out some of the tension in your life. At times, you will have a “what will be, will be” attitude. Dancing, swimming, photography, arts, and entertainment are favored. If you are an artist, this could be an especially inspired, imaginative, and productive year. Pay attention to your gut feelings, which will, more often than not, give you valuable information. If you are involved in sales, you will be able to tune into your client’s inner desires and motivations.
This can be a year in which you are building faith and confidence in your personality, skills, and talents. You can experience a stronger desire to seek out meaning, wisdom, and mental stimulation in your life during this period. Others might frequently turn to you for guidance. You can have many projects and ideas on the table now. You are hungry for variety, knowledge, and mental excitement. You could have a pleasing way with words, whether spoken or written (or both), and a love for order in the world of ideas and problem solving.
Jupiter transits in harmony with your Sun in August, and you have a stronger than usual desire to improve, grow, and learn. This is a fortunate aspect that helps boost optimism and confidence, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve. Matters related to universities, higher education, organized religion, publishing, legal affairs, and foreign interests can be especially strong. It’s a strong time to further your education. You are likely to enjoy a larger perspective on matters that keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses.
There is a spontaneous feel to your relationships this year. You are more willing to entertain the new or untried in your social life. You have a taste for the offbeat, and this energy can bring sudden or unexpected romance or friendship into your life. Reach out and connect. Venus in hard aspect to Jupiter in your Solar Return chart brings love and romance into your life, but you could encounter problems due to overblown expectations or excessive behavior. Find a way to strike a balance between self-gratification and the obligations of daily life.
You can experience more popularity or a stronger interest in others and making connections. This is a year of general fortune through your relationships and meetings.
Teamwork and camaraderie, as well as meaningful connections, are themes. You feel your life has definite purpose this year. Through your contacts with others, you are encouraged to grow.
This can be a year in which you are doing a lot of connecting and creating. You are experimenting and trying on new ways of relating and living. You may be making new friends or enjoying current friendships more than usual. The connections you make tend to be growth-oriented and encouraging. Learning, communicating, sharing, and teaching can be successful and in strong focus. The tendency to overdo things, however, should be watched, but do find ways to reach beyond your usual bounds.
2016 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.
2017 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.
