If Today is Your Birthday: January 24
The Year Ahead
Forecast for January 2007 to January 2008
Venus forms positive connections to 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. 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. Still, you are bound to experience periods of growth both financially and socially. You will gain new insights into close relationships, and strategy is the key to financial success this year.
Mercury conjuncts Neptune and is in favorable aspect to Jupiter in your Solar Return. Your ability to express yourself creatively and to solve problems intuitively 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. You are more sensitive artistically, your imagination is stirred, and you have an increased appreciation for subtleties. You are inspired and could even inspire others with your words. Some of your hunches could be prophetic. You are thinking more creatively, and express yourself with more sensitivity, compassion, and warmth.
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.
The year ahead is one of learning, subtle growth, and reward. It’s an excellent period in which to develop your intuition, write a book if you have the inclination, and share your ideas with others. You need to watch out for throwing yourself into impractical ventures, however.
2007 is 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.
2008 will be 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.
