If Today is Your Birthday: January 23
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.
Venus forms positive connections to Neptune, Jupiter, and Pluto, as well as a challenging aspect to Saturn in your Solar Return chart, suggesting plenty of activity on social and financial levels this year. This could be a year in which romance enters your life or is enhanced. However, there can be a tendency to be starry-eyed about your romantic and social relationships. 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 opposite Saturn. You might also experience some confusion regarding financial affairs this year, but you are also likely to experience periods of growth. You may often find that you have to make a choice in which both alternatives are desirable, but you must choose one at the expense of the other. You need to assess areas of your life that have become dysfunctional and, in the process, you may need to sacrifice a material benefit for a spiritual good (or vice versa). The urge to expand and socialize is great, but circumstances may be such that you are unable to “play” as often as you’d like. Or, you may find that extravagances in your spending have a way of catching up with you, and buckling down is necessary this year.
There is a tight square between Jupiter and Uranus in your Solar Return chart. 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.
Mars in challenging aspect to Neptune cautions you to be aware of a tendency to be attracted to impractical ventures. You may find that is too easy to waste your time and energy, perhaps due to a lack of drive or feeling directionless. You may also experience passive-aggressiveness in others, which impacts your life in frustrating ways, or you could find relationships with others confusing and hard to define. Although you may enjoy an increase in your intuitive capabilities, you may also be too open to influence so that fears or delusions impact your ability to see your life clearly. This could also be a year when you are more creative, however. The universe is encouraging you to develop your intuition and creative powers.
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.
The year ahead is especially strong for new learning experiences, enhanced imagination, and creativity. Solving problems that previously left you stumped comes easily now. Ups and downs are likely in the areas of personal finances and social or romantic relationships, as you attempt to balance work and play time. This is a year of expansion and creative change.
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.
