The Year Ahead
Forecast for January 2009 to January 2010
The lunar phase at the time of your birthday this year is the Crescent Moon phase. This is a year in which you are striving to break free from habitual behavior patterns in order to free yourself up for new opportunities. While you may encounter some resistance from others, your path is to push forward and uncover new ways of expressing yourself.
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.
The Sun conjunct the North Node in your Solar Return indicates that you may assume a leadership role this year. You are likely to establish connections and/or relationships with people that help forward your own personal growth. Teamwork and camaraderie, as well as meaningful connections, are themes. You feel your life has definite purpose this year. Through your contacts with others, you are encouraged to grow.
Venus sextile Mars in your Solar Return signifies pleasant sexual tension, libidinal attraction, and playful competitiveness in relationships this 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.
Mercury conjuncts Mars, sextiles Venus and Uranus, and trines Saturn in your Return chart, suggesting much activity on mental and communication levels.

You may be involved in frequent lectures, debates, and discussions during the year. You can convey your ideas more powerfully. You are quick to take the initiative and to put your thoughts into action. Adventuresome travel may be part of the picture. You may be more actively involved with young people. Steady progress in mental pursuits figures strongly in your year ahead. New ideas can be effectively put into action.
Mars is in harmonious aspect to Saturn, and work takes on definite shape this year. 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.
A mostly optimistic attitude can carry you far this year. You are very much on track when it comes to going after what you want and pursuing your goals, and mental pursuits thrive.
