July 1 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: July 1
The Year Ahead
Forecast for July 2007 to July 2008
Your birthday falls just after a Full Moon this year, suggesting a period of communication and teaching. You may be turned to for advice more frequently, and you are very willing to offer your help. This is a strong year for publicity and any other endeavors that involve spreading the word. As well, your ability to be objective–or to see the “big picture”–can be especially rewarding this year. The Sun conjunct Mercury in your Solar Return chart suggests a busy period in which the exchange of information figures prominently.
Venus conjuncts Saturn and opposes Neptune around the time of your birthday this year. Uncertainty in Venus-ruled areas of life (romance, social life, and finances) is the theme, but this does not necessarily point to financial or romantic losses, by all means. It might point to, for example, a variable income that goes with the territory of self-employment, or a relationship that isn’t quite as settled as you’d like it to be yet. Saturn asks you to be responsible, hard working, dutiful, and serious when it comes to finances and/or romantic relationships. Neptune, on the other hand, places a veil over your eyes, and seduces you into believing what you want to believe rather than what really is. 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). You are learning a valuable spiritual lesson that will help you to put your priorities in better perspective. This lesson may come in mysterious ways. Spiritual, artistic, or musical endeavors can provide a welcome relief. Disappointments or disillusionments can lead to a stronger sense of reality and purpose. The final outcome ideally will be a more serious and responsible attitude toward your finances, romantic, or social relationships. A romance may be solidified or an attachment to an older or more mature partner could be part of the picture.
Some relief from the above conflict comes from a trine between Venus and Pluto. Romantic relationships and attractions have a fated quality to them this year. This could be a year in which you fall in love, and this could be with a person, an activity, or a cause! Meeting someone who transforms your life, and more specifically your values and attitude towards love, is possible under this influence. Strong existing relationships are likely to grow and transform in rewarding ways, as you are more open than usual to intensity and passion. Your finances could also improve dramatically this year as long as you employ strategy.
Mercury sextile Mars implies that you are more inclined to put your ideas into action than usual. You apply more energy to mental pursuits, your wit is sharper than usual, and you convey your ideas more powerfully. Mars in challenging aspect to Uranus does suggest some impulsive inclinations. This can be a year when bursts of restlessness, rebellion, and impatience figure prominently. You have a tendency to take risks and to act on sudden impulses without considering consequences. There may be changes in work schedules, or life’s circumstances could challenge you in such a way that you need to change your goals or actions. This can also be a time when you tend to resist others and challenge them if they are trying to hold you back. Technology may be a source of irritation, and electrical appliances may break down or not work up to par. Energy fluctuates this year. Anger can erupt seemingly from nowhere. If you aren’t too rash or impulsive, you might be able to free yourself from restrictive circumstances. You could also have more courage than usual to do things that break the routine, and confrontations engaged in this year could clear the air and help you to move forward.
With the Sun trine the North Node of the Moon, you are likely to form new relationships or connections that further your spiritual growth, or to enhance existing relationships with a spirit of camaraderie. Events take place in which you feel like you are moving forward and growing into a new phase of your life.
A busy year in which learning and the exchange of information figure prominently is in store for you. Your romantic and/or social life may be complicated at times in the year ahead. Although you may be forced into accepting some realities, the end result is a stronger sense of self-worth and commitment. Relationship challenges become apparent, and you have the tools to iron out differences. This is a strong year for new mental pursuits, learning, growth-oriented connections, and travel.
2007 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.
2008 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.
