The Year Ahead
Forecast for January 2010 to January 2011
If You Were Born Today, January 4: You are highly ambitious and responsible, working hard at what you do and rarely letting small setbacks steer you from your course. Goal-oriented, your biggest weakness is a tendency to take on far too much! You are responsible, a fabulous partner, direct and honest, and quite likable as well. You are a practical person who has much sound advice to give for those smart enough to ask you for it. Famous people born today: Sir Isaac Newton, Louis Braille, Jane Wyman, Dyan Cannon, Michael Stipe.
Your Birthday Year Forecast: A trine between the Sun and the Moon in your Solar Return chart this year is a fortunate aspect. It suggests that your domestic and career needs are not in competition with one another in the year ahead. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa. This aspect is very powerful and rewarding. It suggests that you will be on top of your game this year, for the most part, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. A comfortable level of personal popularity helps to keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there is less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!
The Sun conjunct Venus and Mercury in your Solar Return chart places a strong emphasis on your social relationships, love, romance, pleasure, and communication this year. These matters are tied to your ego and pride. You more readily and naturally employ charm this year, and you are generally quite likable and easygoing during this period of your life. You are also more expressive and curious than usual.
The Sun and Venus in creative aspect to Mars and Uranus in your Solar Return chart adds a spontaneous, creative, and original spin to your personality this year. You are more willing to take chances, and flexibility is one of the keys to success in the period ahead. It is easier than usual to break free from habits that have previously held you back from going after what you want in life. Romantic expression is spontaneous and charming.
Energy and mood fluctuations are expected to figure strongly in the year ahead. Conserve energy whenever you can.
Transiting Saturn square your Sun occurs for you starting in November 2010, and is a rather heavy and sober influence, but also one that is certain to straighten you out on some level. You’ll be working hard at disciplining yourself during this period. As you face obstacles to your goals, you begin to see the tools with which you have to overcome them. A dose of realism may seem forced upon you from time to time this year, but your efforts to measure up to expectations can ultimately increase your confidence in your ability to be responsible for yourself. You are likely to have new or increased responsibilities this year, and it might take some time to get adjusted to them. The need to re-structure and re-organize your life will be apparent at some point this year. Your ego may be a little frail at this point, and, as a result, you may be harder on yourself than you need be. Much can be accomplished this year. Although you may not see immediate results for your efforts, important groundwork can be laid for the future.
Saturn is square to Pluto in your Solar Return chart. This suggests a need for you to come to terms with your own powers of authority and your effectiveness. Power struggles, frustration, and manipulation are possible themes this year. You may desire change, but feel blocked by others or by circumstances. Alternatively, you may be attempting to resist change that is inevitable. Persistence will pay off in the end, and the need to adjust your expectations becomes obvious.
Jupiter conjunct Chiron and Neptune in your Solar Return chart suggests that idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses have more significance in your life this year. You may experience an increased need for greater understanding, wisdom, and awareness, as well as increased interest in the healing arts and holistic health this year. It may be a time during which you reconsider or revamp your personal belief system. Everyday, ordinary life may not always satisfy, as you hunger for a more idealistic life.
A more sociable year than usual is ahead of you. Mental projects and studies fare especially well this year, and new connections can be made through shared intellectual and cultural interests. Openness to change is a valuable asset this year. Major restructuring of your life will help you to clear your head and to get your priorities straight.
2010 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.
2011 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.
