If Today is Your Birthday: July 11
The Year Ahead
Forecast for July 2009 to July 2010
With the Sun sextile Saturn in your Solar Return chart, work you have done begins to pay off this year. You may be recognized or rewarded in some way for the efforts you put forth. Because you project a more responsible and credible you, people in authority tend to be more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work. This is a year when you put your life in order in some significant manner. The key to success this year is adopting a realistic, practical, disciplined, and orderly approach to your life.
Busy, busy, busy! The Sun conjunct Mercury in your Solar Return chart suggests that you have a lot to do this year. At times, you may feel like the pace of your life is running ahead of you. You can be especially productive, however, in all types of communications–writing, speaking, learning, teaching, and so forth. Advances in intellectual and mental pursuits are likely, as you make steady progress that has long-lasting results.
Venus in creative aspect to Uranus brings an element of spontaneity into your personal relationships. This is a favorable influence for social meetings and events, and for situations that call for treating others with equality and respect. You may lose your fear of taking risks this year on a social level, and happily embrace all that is new, unusual, and out-of-the-ordinary with regards to romantic involvements as well as financial undertakings. You are ready to experiment, and not necessarily ready to commit. This could be a good year for financial undertakings involving electronics, technology, the internet, metaphysics, and the arts, as well as group activities. You have a taste for the offbeat this year, and this energy can bring sudden or unexpected romance into your life, perhaps a scenario that feels like love at first sight.
Mars squares Jupiter, Neptune, and Chiron around the time of your birthday, pointing to ups and downs energetically speaking–your energy and interest levels tend to wax and wane frequently this year. 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.
Mars also sextiles Uranus, which suggests bursts of creativity and energy that help you to further your goals. Healthy risk-taking is likely this year, as you are more able to spot an opportunity when you see one. It is easier than usual to break free from habits that have previously held you back from going after what you want in life.
With Mars trine the Moon’s North Node, you may be actively involved with teamwork and collaboration with others this year. This can also indicate an increased need for sexual union, as it stirs the passions and generally indicates ease in satisfying one’s desires through positive connections with others.
Mercury is in hard aspect to Mars around the time of your birthday this year, which is a good energy for debate or energetic mental work. It’s possible that you may be argumentative and irritable under this influence, and particularly impatient with vagueness. However, if this energy is applied well, you may simply enjoy a more active and clear mind. This influence excites and over-stimulates the whole nervous system. Be careful to avoid cutting words and aggressive driving. You may be involved in frequent lectures, debates, and discussions during the year. 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. Because Mercury is also harmonizing with Saturn, advances in intellectual and mental pursuits are likely, as you make steady progress that has long-lasting results.
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.
Getting your life into order is a priority for you this year. Energy levels may vary from day to day, but ultimately, the key to success is a slow and steady approach–keeping expectations realistic is important. Relationships are rewarding and new connections are made that help you to feel that you are moving forward.
2009 is 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.
2010 will be a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time, when it is easy to enjoy life and other people. Focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure. It is likely to be a rather lighthearted year, when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a good year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out, but avoid scattering your energies.
