The Year Ahead
Forecast for July 2007 to July 2008
With the Sun in hard aspect with Jupiter in your Solar Return chart, you may be tempted to throw out practical considerations in favor of big ideas and plans that may not carry weight from time to time in the year ahead. Optimism can run high, but be careful of blind optimism and extravagance. Because Mercury forms a tense aspect with Neptune as well, err on the side of caution if offers arrive that seem too good to be true. Some confusion, minor misunderstandings, or possibly deception could arise in communications this year, and you may be skipping important details without even realizing it.
A pleasing trine between Venus and Pluto suggests that romantic relationships and attractions have a fated quality to them this year. This could be a year in which you fall in love, and this could be with a person, an activity, or a cause! Meeting someone who transforms your life, and more specifically your values and attitude towards love, is possible under this influence. Strong existing relationships are likely to grow and transform in rewarding ways, as you are more open than usual to intensity and passion. Your finances could also improve dramatically this year as long as you employ strategy.
Mercury sextile Venus adds charm to the way you present your ideas this year, certainly helping to smooth over differences in your personal relationships. This influence also helps you to express yourself more creatively. Mercury trine the Moon’s North Node suggests making contact through learning, communicating, and mental pursuits. An intellectually stimulating year in which the exchange of ideas with others figures prominently is in store for you.
Mars sextiles Uranus, and 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. Still, Mars also forms a square with Neptune, and energy levels are bound to be erratic. You may find that is too easy to waste your time and energy, perhaps due to a lack of drive or 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. Although you may enjoy an increase in your intuitive capabilities, you may 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.
Your romantic and/or social life becomes deeper and more meaningful as you make necessary changes and intensify your experiences with others. It’s a strong year for starting fresh, launching new projects, socializing, and making lifestyle changes that benefit you for years to come. Avoiding the tendency towards “pie in the sky” thinking will be necessary in order to keep grounded. Impractical ventures may hold a strong lure for you, and it is best to avoid jumping into new endeavors without thinking things over.
2007 is a Number Seven year for you. Ruled by Neptune. This is a year of preparation, chance, and refinement. It is not a time of dramatic changes. Instead, it’s a year when reflection on the past is helpful, and when refinements to your life path should be made. It’s a good year to study and analyze. Unexpected twists to your life story and “chance” meetings are probable. Advice – take stock of your life in order to prepare for more exciting years to come, examine the past and plan for the future, get in touch with your deepest needs and uncover your personal power, don’t strain yourself or actively try to expand.
2008 will be a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It’s generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice – take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.
