The Year Ahead
Forecast for January 2009 to January 2010
The Sun conjunct Jupiter in your Return chart indicates a greater awareness of moral issues, and a stronger than usual desire to improve and learn this year. This is a fortunate aspect that suggests optimism and confidence are with you, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve this year. Your social life will likely increase and bring you in contact with more influential, powerful, or simply happy and helpful people. Travel opportunities are likely. It is not uncommon to marry, have children, graduate college, increase income, do freelance work, get a promotion, publish a book, or receive public recognition under this influence. Matters related to universities, higher education, organized religion, publishing, legal affairs, and foreign interests proceed smoothly. This is an excellent year in which to seek advanced training or to further your education. Sun/Jupiter aspects often correlate with ceremonies that formally acknowledge past achievements. The Sun semi-square Venus indicates a possible tendency to overdo pleasures, whether these include over-eating, over-spending, or other such matters.
There is bound to be some struggle between convention and innovation, and between responsibilities and freedom, in your life this year. Attempts to assert your individuality, freedom, and originality could undermine your feelings of groundedness and security. Yet, you are not satisfied when you conform. There may be sudden and unexpected twists in your life that urge or force you to do something different or that free you from old habits. Setbacks tend to be temporary and often lead to new, more creative paths or solutions. Ambivalence is likely and could color many of your interactions. It can be challenging to make one particular decision and stick to it.
Venus sextile Mars in your Solar Return signifies pleasant sexual tension, libidinal attraction, and playful competitiveness in relationships this year. Romance is in the air, as this aspect increases your sensuality, sex appeal, and animal magnetism. Marriage could occur in such a year. Now is also a good time to engage in creative projects and to join with others in pursuing a common goal. If you are involved in competition, you may very well come out a winner.
A conjunction between Venus and Uranus also promises excitement on romantic and social levels. For some, finances are also affected. It may be that you experience sudden changes or breakups with a friend or lover. However, the chance of a sudden new friendship is just as likely. At the root of this is a stronger taste for the unusual. What is familiar is less exciting to you than what is new and different. If a relationship seems to threaten your sense of freedom, you may have an easy time separating from it. Some fireworks in both your social and financial lives are to be expected. Venus also opposes Saturn, and there can be a tug of war happening on romantic levels, and this is between responsibilities to others and the desire to be carefree.
Mars is in harmonious aspect to Saturn and Uranus, and you prefer to work very hard but at your own pace this year. Bursts of creativity and energy help you to further your goals, and a feeling of purposefulness helps to motivate you. You are more able to spot an opportunity when you see one, and it is easier than usual to break free from habits that have previously held you back from going after what you want in life. Work takes on definite shape this year, and you can see results from your efforts, or at least foresee success down the road.
The desire to create is strong, and the ability to realize creative or artistic dreams is with you this year, as you are motivated to bring form to your creative ideas.
Relationships are stimulating and changeful this year. You are eager to take on a challenge and happily engage in friendly competition. Some struggle between freedom and responsibility is likely in many areas of your life, but particularly in love relationships and with your career. A mostly optimistic attitude can carry you far this year. You are very much on track this year when it comes to going after what you want and pursuing your goals.
2009 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.
2010 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.
