The Year Ahead
Forecast for June 2019 to June 2020
If You Were Born Today, July 18:
While you are very companionable and thrive in a partnership, you are also highly independent in nature, freedom-loving, and success-oriented. You are sentimental and in some ways surprisingly traditional, but your thinking is progressive. You can be known for your powerful mind, and also for your quirks! You are very loyal by nature, particularly in close relationships, but you still very much need for a relationship to grow and evolve. Famous people born today: Nelson Mandela, Vin Diesel, John Glenn, Kristen Bell, James Brolin, Elsa Pataky.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
Your birthday falls shortly after a Full Moon this year, suggesting a period ahead 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 pronounced and rewarding this year. A project could complete and bear fruit.
You are very likely to attract loving relationships and/or new warm social contacts into your life. Your popularity increases and efforts to smooth over challenges in partnerships are more likely to succeed. This is an excellent influence for negotiations, marriage, and business partnerships.
You might meet someone who changes your perspective or encourages your more artistic, imaginative, or spiritual side. You might feel that you’ve met a soul mate or a special friend. Your intuition is powerful this year.
It’s a potentially wonderful period for bringing more imagination to your life. You’re especially sensitive to others’ needs and feelings.
With Venus in a tense aspect to Saturn in your Solar Return, however, getting serious about love or money (or both) is likely to be a theme this year. Money may be tight, or the need to buckle down with your finances may be necessary. You have an increased awareness of your limits. The responsibilities of certain relationships are magnified this year. You are likely to be more earnest on a romantic level. An existing relationship may become more serious, or you may form a new partnership with a serious or older person. Opportunities to socialize may be reduced, and this could be the result of increased responsibilities or it could stem from some lack of confidence.
Nevertheless, there can be certain relationships that grow and expand and are really quite magical as Venus harmonizes with Neptune. This might also indicate a creative pursuit or a satisfying hobby. As well, there can be a stronger tendency toward, or desire for, commitment and deep involvement in a special relationship. There can be a willingness to make sacrifices if it seems the best way to make improvements in relationships and with money matters. You can be quite particular in your tastes, and better than usual with money and savings.
Mars trine Jupiter in your Solar Return chart infuses the year with an enterprising spirit. This is a strong aspect for professional as well as personal opportunities. Your faith in your ability to produce and to win takes you places you perhaps never imagined. You are able to see the “big picture”, which helps you to plan effectively. The energies of this influence favor negotiations, deals, legal matters, reasonable speculation, and travel. This aspect also favors positive outcomes in competitive activities, including sports and business, for example.
This can be a year when bursts of restlessness, rebellion, and impatience figure prominently. There can be times when life’s circumstances challenge you in such a way that you need to take an entirely new direction or 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. 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.
Transiting Saturn forms an opposition to your Sun from February 2020 forward. Saturn calls upon you to identify the weaker areas of your life and to fix or strengthen them. Take the time to sort out details, improve your work, and become more efficient this month. Taking a slow and steady approach to life is necessary during this period. Pushing too hard will likely lead to frustration and setbacks. Take it easy and work on self-improvement. Results are not immediate, but will eventually come and bring healthy rewards. Relationships may be (or seem) more challenging than usual while Saturn opposes your Sun.
Pluto transits in opposition to your Sun starting in May 2020, and you might experience some blocks and frustrations. Pushing too hard to get your way can backfire. Avoid taking extreme measures to make things happen your way, and avoid people who might be doing the same. Deliberately trying to maneuver things in order to get the upper hand will be a lesson in frustration. It’s important to avoid power games with others which can be all too easy to become a part of this year. Look for healthy ways to release frustrations.
The year ahead is relationship-oriented, and you can find yourself in high demand. At times, the year can feel a bit hectic, as it’s easy for you to get worked up over issues, and you should probably watch for impulsive communications. However, it can also be a time for identifying and handling various problems that help smooth your path for the future. Work or special projects can be exciting and rewarding, and your social life is likely to open up pleasingly, even if there are adjustments needed in a particular relationship. It can be an excellent year for travel or mind-expanding interests and experiences.
2019 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.
2020 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.
