If Today is Your Birthday: January 20
The Year Ahead
Forecast for January 2007 to January 2008
Your birthday this year occurs just after a New Moon, suggesting a time of new beginnings and fresh energy. You are instinctively starting a new phase in your life. It’s time to give your life a makeover and to branch out into the untried.
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–as well as innovation. 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. In fact, the tendency to become disillusioned due to not seeing situations clearly is higher because Venus is also opposite Saturn. You might also experience some confusion regarding financial affairs this year.
Mercury in favorable aspect to Jupiter in your Solar Return suggests that your ability to express yourself and to solve problems is enhanced this year. You may have opportunities to travel, and matters related to publishing, teaching, and writing should go especially well. You may find that you have the right information at the right time this year. You could also have big ideas and plans. Work, especially in communications, goes well. Relationships with young people may be particularly rewarding and positive. An optimistic attitude serves you very well. The desire to expand your mind is strong, and this is a good year to take up studies or to further your education. It’s also excellent for teaching and speaking.
Increased focus and determination, the desire to learn and expand your mind, and strong pioneering impulses are your strengths this year. Some relationship tangles are possible, however, if you refuse to see your relationships realistically.
2007 is a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time, when it is easy to enjoy life and other people. Focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure. It is likely to be a rather lighthearted year, when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a good year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out, but avoid scattering your energies.
2008 will be 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. Positive new relationships are generally not formed in a Four personal year. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
