The Year Ahead
Forecast for July 2012 to July 2013
If You Were Born Today, July 1:
You are an intriguing person who attracts attention whether you want to or not because of this quality. You’re a very determined person, sometimes quite stubborn, who is also hard-working. At the same time, you have a soft, giving, and perceptive side to you. Love relationships can be up and down because of a tendency to swing between being too soft and too hard. Famous people born today: Princess Diana, Pamela Anderson, Liv Tyler, Jamie Farr, Twyla Tharp, Dan Aykroyd, Debbie Harry, Estee Lauder.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
Chiron transits in harmony with your Sun this year. You are likely to be recognized for your more unique qualities. Your personal magnetism runs quite high. A humbly confident approach to life earns you respect. You have the chance to shine, largely because you are projecting yourself with self-respect and modesty at once. You are especially appealing and charming just by being yourself. Opportunities – both personal and professional – are likely to present themselves as a result. You are not looking for credit for what you do, which frees you up to get it anyhow! Teaching others may be part of the picture, informally or formally.
Until January 2013, however, you continue to experience a Pluto opposition to your Sun. The intensity of your self-expression may have the effect of alienating you from others’ help or sympathy at times during this period. It’s important to choose your battles wisely, as you can very easily become drained by obsessive thoughts and possibly resentments. You are learning to reclaim your personal power through the mirror of your relationships. This transit marks a major growth period in your life in which you struggle with the buried elements of your personality and ego as you learn to accept, transform, or face them. You may be acting in a controlling, jealous, or overbearing manner which can alienate others or even push them away. This comes from a deep fear of letting go and surrendering to the idea that some things cannot be directed or controlled. As this fear surfaces, your behavior may be compulsive or obsessive; or you may experience these traits through someone close to you, especially a male. Either way, you are learning to detach yourself or let go of something, someone, or attitudes that are no longer serving you well. You might fear the loss of a person, a lifestyle, a job, or other significant part of your life. What you need to do is avoid turning this into a self-fulfilling prophecy. The fear itself may lead you to compulsive, suspicious, or difficult behavior; and this behavior might cost you the very thing that you hold dear. You tend to act on impulse and often don’t listen to reason–even your own!
Your load tends to lighten considerably after January and the end of this Pluto transit.
This is an excellent year in which to advance projects revolving around communications – writing, speaking, selling, and so forth. Your reputation may be enhanced through word of mouth. Making new contacts through learning and mental pursuits figures strongly as well.
You are likely to be popular with others when it comes to your ideas and communications, especially as you are communicating with optimism and cheerfulness, and this can bring rewarding experiences and opportunities into your life.
Pleasing circumstances surrounding your love life, finances, and creative pursuits are in store this year. You are more generous, and others return the favor. You might receive financial backing or special gifts in the period ahead. You seek a little more from your love life and you are likely to receive it. Some of you could fall in love this year, or existing relationships are enhanced. Adventure-seeking is a theme.
On a social level, you are a bit of a risk taker this year, happily embracing all that is new, unusual, and out-of-the-ordinary with regards to romantic involvements as well as financial undertakings. 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.
Other cultures, travel, and broadening your horizons may figure strongly this year. While you might be quite sensitive at times to the new perspectives you’re learning about, overall there is a sense that you’re learning a lot.
A Jupiter-Neptune square in your Solar Return chart is an influence you share with many people with adjacent birthdays, and suggests that you are bound to enjoy experiencing different cultures and ethnic styles. It is good for you to travel or at least expand your horizons by making new friends this year. You can be successful in the entertainment industry or in any field that requires a lot of imagination and vision. You take on a dreamy and philosophical outlook, which opens up your heart to new experiences. Of course, there is a down side to every positive. Temper your enthusiasm with realism. Enthusiasm running high is a good thing, but if it’s over-inflated or impractical, you might set yourself up for some lows that are just as inflated as the highs! Do your best to avoid “get rich quick” schemes or anything along those lines. Things might look better than they are, especially this year.
The year ahead is likely to be a complex one, with wonderful opportunities as well as ups and downs. You are open to new experiences in love and in friendship. Watch for wastefulness and putting all of your eggs in one basket, however. As well, try to avoid rebellious behavior, which is a strong tendency this year.
2012 is a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to deal with practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
2013 will be a Number Five year for you. Ruled by Mercury. This is a year of exploration and freedom. It’s a time when exploration and reaching out to others brings opportunities. It’s a good time to advertise and sell. Surprises are in store, and the routine is broken. This is a year when exciting relationships can be formed, or, if you are already in a partnership, new life is breathed into the relationship. Advice – explore, look for adventure, keep your eyes open for opportunities, mingle.
