Your Birthday Year Forecast:
Your birthday occurs around a Third 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 greater understanding and a strong desire to take care of business. This should be a busy, dynamic period in your life.
You experience a stabilizing Saturn transit to your Sun until October. With this transit, you are practical in your choices (for the most part), keeping your feet on the ground and honoring tradition as well as tried-and-true methods. You have the power of practicality, realism, and caution on your side. Work you have done in the past begins to pay off this year–not necessarily in dramatic ways, but in small, measurable ways. You may be recognized or rewarded in some way for the efforts you put forth. Because you project a more responsible and credible “you,” people in authority are more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work. This is a year in which you put your life in order in some significant manner. Improved concentration, a more realistic outlook, and a practical awareness of the limits of time all help you to make steady progress, particularly in your career. Your concern for your future this year is stronger than usual, and you may find that projects you start, or investments you make, will benefit you for years to come. One of the keys to success this year is adopting a realistic, practical, disciplined, and orderly approach to your life.
The need to “get serious” about areas of your life where you’ve been slacking is likely now as Saturn passes over your Sun this year. New responsibilities are likely to present themselves this year, or you are likely to take them more seriously. Gone are the rose-colored glasses! With your ability to accurately assess your life, you can make real headway. The kind of progress you make now may not seem significant for the time being, but you will look back on this period of your life as one in which you truly made REAL progress towards your goals.
Fortunately, you also have Jupiter transiting conjunct your Sun this year, expanding your opportunities and boosting your confidence. It’s a powerful period for donning a fresh new face as you approach the world in more confident ways.
This Jupiter transit brings more awareness of moral issues and long-term goals, as well as a stronger than usual desire to improve and learn. It’s a feel-good transit that boosts your popularity. People enjoy being around you! Optimism is with you, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve this year. You are more sociable and might meet especially helpful people during this period. Travel opportunities are more likely. Your broader perspective on matters this year keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses and strains.
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.
There can be the need to organize and structure your family activities, home life, emotions, or care of others, or there can be a strong sense of duty associated with loved ones or caring for people in your life this year. Responsibilities to your loved ones are clear and you readily accept them. This is a year in which you seek out nourishment and naturally nurture and support others. Needs and cravings are in strong focus, and you’re drawn to those things you feel are more wholesome, healthy, and natural. This can be a period in which you make significant lifestyle improvements and/or positive changes to your home and family life.
Financial undertakings involving electronics, technology, the internet, metaphysics, and the arts, as well as group activities are in good favor for the most. You have a taste for the offbeat this year, and this period can bring sudden or unexpected romance into your life.
Relationships are mutually beneficial and naturally equal, fair, and balanced in the period ahead. There can be a stronger inclination towards togetherness and sharing.
This is an important year for reorganization and discipline. The period ahead demands hard work at remodeling and renovating your goals or a particular area of your life. You may want or need to start over or rebuild in this area. You can feel driven to achieve and accomplish something.
Learning, studies, and communications are well-favored. You’re excited to grow and improve. You’re especially creative, resourceful, and enterprising this year. You’re willing to try new things, and there are distinct opportunities emerging to enjoy and express yourself. Still, you’re disciplined and ready to simplify, downsize, or organize to improve an area of your life. Responsibilities are in strong focus.
2020 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 pay special attention to 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.
