Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The New Moon in your Solar Return chart suggests that you will instinctively begin a new phase of your life this year. A decisively new direction has come about in your life. This can be an emotionally stimulating time in which you feel the urge to initiate and project, even if you are not quite clear about what you are projecting. Much of the energy in your life can have a magical quality to it as things are just automatically going in a certain direction. It is important to be intuitive at this time and allow the natural course to show you the way to the next step. Surprises (mostly very pleasant) pepper your year. New beginnings are in order, and you are bound to feel some level of excitement as the year unfolds.
This can be a year in which you experience important turning points, or you could begin new projects or goals that have a long-term impact on your life.
Your heart is with your family and your home this year. There is some tendency to dwell on emotional hurts from the past. However, a positive domestic theme can figure strongly during this period. You’re also more sensitive to the conditions of your surroundings and determined to make them harmonious.
Transiting Neptune continues to transit in harmony to your Sun this year (since April–a long-term transit). You seek a higher purpose to your life this period, and you rely more heavily upon your intuition in order to achieve it. Your intuition is subtly enhanced, and you’re often in the right place at the right time, probably because your hunches are more likely to be correct. You tune into your imaginative and artistic side.
This is a good period for self-improvement programs or efforts. The need to “get away from it all” to find some peace and quiet now and again will be strong. A more sensitive – even mysterious – persona is projected again this year, and this can attract pleasantly unusual circumstances (and people) into your life.
There can be a greater interest in relationships and love. It’s a fine time for excursions, romantic connections, popularity with your ideas and words, and personal charm.
Node connections in your Solar Return chart are strong for passion in your relationships or for a new start in a relationship. This can also be an important year for attracting supportive, pleasant, or loving relationships. Your popularity increases and efforts to smooth over challenges in partnerships are more likely to succeed. You’re in better shape for negotiations and unions or partnerships.
You could have more faith in a key person or relationship this year. There can be a focus on sharing or blending beliefs, morals, and values; or there can be a strong focus on growing and improving through one another. Having combined or shared goals and ambitions can be a strong bonding factor.
You can feel energized and inspired creatively at this time, ready to fight for something you believe in. You find it easier to assert yourself and pursue your desires.
You’re often taking the initiative during this period, looking for opportunities. There can be a lot of appointments, connections, or competition. You can have big projects or pursuits in mind during this period, and your enthusiasm and enterprise are strong. You have great stamina and endurance.
However, Mars in challenging aspect to Saturn in your Solar Return chart suggests some ups and downs in the year ahead due to your plans and efforts meeting with resistance. At times, circumstances seem to block your efforts to assert yourself, and you might feel like more effort than usual is required to complete tasks, which could lead to some frustration. Patience is necessary because progress may not always be steady, and energy can be stop-and-go. You’re able to rise to challenges, however, and grow through them. In fact, you’re exceptionally enterprising this year.
This can be a good time to get work done with or for loved ones as well as with home and hearth. It’s also a strong period for the motivation to grow and improve a business or long-term project.
You benefit from a helpful Jupiter transit in May 2024 that brings nice opportunities to you. Optimism and confidence are with you, and you come in contact with helpful people. Pinnacle successes can occur during this period, and matters related to universities, higher education, organized religion, publishing, legal affairs, and foreign interests are more likely to proceed smoothly. It’s a good time to seek out advanced training or to further your education.
You’re beginning a new chapter in your life story, and things feel fresh. The year ahead is strong for enjoying new opportunities to improve and grow–life brings interesting experiences your way. Your personal appeal is strong. New, different, or a renewed interest in your studies and personal projects and pursuits figure strongly.
