If Today is Your Birthday: January 28
The Year Ahead
Forecast for January 2008 to January 2009
Venus conjuncts Pluto and Jupiter in your Solar Return chart, adding depth and intensity to your social life. You could renew and deepen love commitments or social connections this year. Strong and stimulating–even motivating–attractions to others are likely. Secret loves or attractions may develop and existing relationships tend to rise to a higher level of insight and understanding. The potential down side to this configuration is obsession–something to avoid! An increased need for shared interests with a partner, as well as for adventurous or risky connections, is with you this year as you strive for more personal significance. You might decide to invest your time and energy (and possibly money) into an ambitious new project. Venus also forms a harmonious aspect to Saturn, and certain elements of your social and financial lives are stabilized, secured, and more reliable this year. You may solidify a romantic relationship under this influence, or become involved with a mature partner. Circumstances may be such that you need to handle money more carefully this year, or this may simply come naturally to you now.
Mercury conjunct Neptune suggests that your intuition runs high. 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. Mercury also harmonizes with Mars, and mental pursuits, new learning, and all forms of intellectual activity are favored as a result. Expect to be involved in lectures, debates, and discussions during the year. You can convey your ideas powerfully to others, and you may be invited to speak before a group. You are quick to take the initiative and to put your thoughts into action. Adventuresome travel may be in the offing. Young people may be particularly rambunctious.
Mars forms a harmonious aspect to Neptune. You are more inclined to act upon your intuition, your sexual fantasies may be especially strong, and your creative impulses are potent. There will be times this year when you will have a “what will be, will be” attitude. This influence favors dancing, swimming, photography, arts, and entertainment. If you are an artist, this could be an especially inspired, imaginative, and productive year. Pay attention to your gut feelings, which will, more often than not, give you valuable information. If you are involved in sales, you will be able to tune into your client’s inner desires and motivations.
Jupiter harmonizes with Saturn at the time of your birthday this year, suggesting a period of constructive accomplishment. In general, you are practical, realistic, and your judgment is especially sound–and you derive much satisfaction from practical accomplishment. The key to harnessing this wonderful energy is to identify and find pleasure in the simple things that make you happy. A nice balance between optimism and practicality is with you this year.
Your communications and mental output are more original and creative this year. In general, you are inspired–you are certainly getting in touch with the dreamier, more spiritual side of your nature. The ability to find a balance between optimism and practicality helps you to achieve your goals, however, and keeps you grounded. Your love life is transformed this year, and you stand to learn a lot about yourself and others. Some problems with impulsiveness are likely–physical outlets for excess energy will help.
2008 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.
2009 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.
