July 1 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: July 1
The Year Ahead
Forecast for July 2009 to July 2010
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!
Venus is aligned with Mars in your Solar Return chart, and romantic and creative passions figure strongly this year. New beginnings on the romantic front are likely. If you are not currently in a relationship, you are more likely to make the first move and go after what or who you want. Your affections are strongly stimulated, and you are more acutely aware of your powers of attraction. Romance, love, and sexuality occupy your mind more than usual. You can enjoy an increase in personal magnetism (as well as libido!), but be wary of competitiveness or tension in existing love relationships, as this aspect ignites your passions in general, whether theyre feelings of love or anger! 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 could come out a winner.
Both Venus and Mars square Jupiter, Neptune, and Chiron around the time of your birthday, pointing to ups and downs in your love life, or in your perception of your relationships, mainly due to too-high or unrealistic expectations. This is also true energetically speaking–your energy and interest levels tend to wax and wane frequently this year. Tensions in love revolving around how much you are giving, receiving, and accepting are possible. Disappointments that might occur now come from unrealistic expectations. You’ll be learning a lot about your hopes, wishes, and dreams when it comes to relationships, but the lessons might not always be easy. You might want to examine if fear of commitment or intimacy is at the root of any upsets or disillusionments that might be experienced this year. Things might look too good to be true, simply because you want to see the best. The “highs” of a relationship may be thrilling, but the accompanying “lows” can be draining. Uncertainty may characterize your love relationships this year. The same goes for finances. Because Venus is also in favorable aspect to Uranus, there is a lot to learn about giving others, and yourself, more freedom, with a potentially very positive outcome. However, do try to take off the rose-colored glasses when it comes to new financial initiatives and romance. If you don’t, you could be in for some disappointment when reality fails to measure up to your dreams and ideals.
Inspiration comes from unusual sources this year, but you can have a hard time staying focused and organized at times. You may find that is too easy to waste your time and energy, perhaps due to occasional periods when you seem to lack drive and direction. 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. It’s a good idea to examine whether this is actually coming from within you–your own hesitance or confusion may be undermining your relationships with others, for example. Although you may enjoy an increase in your intuitive capabilities, you can 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, yet not always in a reliable or organized manner.
This can be a strong year for mental pursuits, learning, and increased understanding. An openness and receptiveness to learning allows you to absorb information like a sponge, and you’re drawing upon your intuition more heavily. Creativity levels are high. You can effectively use words to soothe, heal, and teach this year. You are also more open to new ways of looking at problems, thus it’s considerably easier to find solutions. You are more sensitive artistically, your imagination is stirred, and you have an increased appreciation for subtleties. You may be a little scatter-brained, and you could find it challenging to deal with routine matters or monotonous tasks. Learning new things is your passion this year–not recycling old ideas or performing repetitive processes.
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. Neptune moving very slowly at the time of your birthday this year places emphasis on spirituality and creativity on one hand, and the possibility of confusion and illusion on the other.
Romantic and creative passions are prominent themes in your life this year. Exploring your feelings, and a spirited, sensual approach to relating, figure strongly. Learning about what truly makes you happy in your social relationships might have you on a see-saw of ups and downs at times, but ultimately leads to greater understanding and acceptance. Creative impulses are potent and powerful, and opportunities to learn are abundant.
2009 is a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.
2010 will be a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is less active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract both things and people. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice – be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect.
