July 11 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: July 11
The Year Ahead
Forecast for July 2008 to July 2009
With Mars conjunct Saturn in your Solar Return chart, this year you are more determined and hard-working than usual. This is an excellent period in your life in which to get organized and to stick with projects through to the end. When you face obstacles to your goals, which is a likely scenario this year, you are likely to just keep on pushing. Progress may be slow, but it’s steady and solid. What you accomplish now will benefit you for years to come.
Nevertheless, the Sun opposes Jupiter around the time of your birthday this year, and you may often be tempted to throw out practical considerations in favor of big ideas and plans that may not carry weight. Optimism can run high, but be careful of blind optimism and extravagance.
Exciting (not jarring) changes and new interests characterize the period ahead with Uranus trine the Sun in your Solar Return chart–an influence that was also with you last year. Its easy to express your unique individuality, and if this involves changing careers or jobs, a new love affair, or an entirely new hobby, it’s something that takes you forward into unexplored territory. You are more than willing to adapt to new circumstances, ideas, and unfamiliar situations this year. It’s a good time to join organizations and groups and to attend meetings or social events. You are able to find creative solutions to problems now. Flexibility is the key to success under this influence. Your personality is sparkling this year, which is sure to attract new circumstances and people into your life.
Mercury is opposed to Pluto–an influence that introduces some intensity into your thought patterns and interactions with others. Try to avoid coming on too strong with your opinions. You are hungry for deeper meaning, but a suspicious attitude, or making mountains out of molehills, wont serve you well. Some secretiveness is possible. At times, you may have a troubled mind and some mental anxiety. On the other hand, it can suggest the ability to engage in deep, penetrating communication this year. Mercury governs speech, and you will need to watch what and how you communicate. Something you write or say could lead to opposition from others. Your need to investigate and read between the lines is strong this year. Its best used for research and increased awareness of psychological motivations, both of others and yourself.
Intensity characterizes many of your pursuits this year as you focus on what matters most to you and weed out frivolous endeavors. Sometimes, you can be tempted to go overboard and should be careful not to overextend yourself or promise more than is possible. You are feeling light and free when it comes to expressing yourself this year.
2008 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.
2009 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.
