Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The Sun in harmonious aspect to the Moon in your Solar Return chart is a pleasant aspect, suggesting that your domestic and career needs are not in competition with one another this year. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa. You are likely to be on top of your game this year for the most part, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. A comfortable level of personal popularity helps keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there will be less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!
However, you experience a Pluto opposition to your Sun transit until December. 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!
You are also experiencing a Uranus transit square to your Sun this year, also until December. With this aspect, any situations that you have felt to be limiting of your freedom will be hard to accept any longer. You might experiment with a new look or manner, or simply come off in an entirely new way as you feel your life speeding up. You are not dwelling on the past, and instead you are interested most in what the future might bring. In the process, you could resent others if they seem to be telling you what to do or think, and you are not especially receptive to good advice. There may be some confrontation with friends, a boss, or a partner that prompts a breaking of ties. Remember that you may be reacting to a bruised ego and you may not be in touch with your deeper feelings before making permanent decisions. It’s possible that you need to move on, but do take time to make decisions wisely. You might be tempted to throw out practical or traditional considerations in favor of more exciting or stimulating plans. Unexpected changes in plans or events are likely. Although they might be unsettling at times, they could stimulate you to try new approaches and they certainly act to cut boredom. Your creativity is stimulated this year, but so is your excitability and your need for freedom. You are likely to be more outspoken than usual, perhaps even rebellious.
Life begins to settle down for you after December. Fewer outside pressures will help you to express yourself more naturally and eases stress.
Good energy is with you for thinking on your feet this year. You are quicker than usual at grasping concepts and ideas, and also quick to take the initiative. Plans that were only in the idea phase might now be put into action. You may be involved in frequent lectures, debates, and discussions during the year. You can convey your ideas more powerfully.
You are in charge of your health and happiness every year, but you feel especially so this year. You are taking more responsibility for self-care and practical matters.
This is a very strong year for new ideas and a wonderful period for starting a new and inspired project. Others are truly interested in what you have to say – for the most part, your communications are well received. You can effectively sell yourself and your ideas. Promotional efforts can be strong.
Your thinking is quite grounded this year, and your mental energies can be extremely focused at times. You can manage detail and do research and analysis especially well. Your thoughts might often turn to practical considerations. Advances in intellectual and mental pursuits are likely, as you make steady progress that has long-lasting results.
If your values and personal philosophy are at odds with others in your life this year, this will be less tolerable and more concerning. You might review some of your attachments in terms of whether they are contributing to your growth and development.
Relationships this year can involve a lot of sorting out of priorities, roles, and balance of power. If you need more freedom, this is a time when confinement will be felt with stronger force, and you’ll want to let go of excessive restrictions. At the same time, you can work hard on promoting harmony. For some of you, this can be a make-or-break year in close relationships.
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, although many of you will be doing a lot of re-connecting with people from your past.
You can be especially hard-working but sometimes too hard on yourself and possibly others as you attempt to get things right. This year, you may be challenged to let go of the past if it’s holding you back, but also to recognize when to stick to things and preserve those things that are important to your growth – a balance should be sought, as either extreme will not contribute to success. However, when possible, you may want to choose to work independently and at your own pace.
Your energy levels run high this year, but you should watch for hasty or impetuous behavior. Remember that haste makes waste. This year is likely to be especially busy. You could be rather wilful and impassioned, and it would be best to channel excess energy into healthy physical outlets. Others might find you temperamental. If you suffer from frequent headaches, it is likely that you are not dealing with your own anger or desire to take the lead appropriately. You feel a great need for action, but if you don’t know where you’re headed, you might take the wrong turn. As long as you channel the excess energy constructively, instead of wasting your time arguing or getting yourself into conflicts with others, you can accomplish much.
Your popularity increases this year, and your ideas are generally well-received, even if your energy is up and down. Take full advantage of the times when you’re super energetic and motivated to compensate for low periods. There is much to learn from others, but some of your differences with people in your life could be more pronounced and frustrating. New ideas are abundant, and some can be quite marketable.
2014 is a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice – let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.
2015 will be 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.
