Your Birthday Year Forecast:
A Full Moon in your Solar Return chart marks this as a year of great personal significance, when major new beginnings, endings, and activities occur. This period is the culmination of a stage of personal growth and development. Events occurring this year may bring various developments in your emotional, psychological, or spiritual life over the past several years to a head. Relationships are especially important. There can be increased activity in your professional and public life, causing a conflict with your domestic and personal goals. There is little moderation in your life this year. Connections are made or ended, or your job focus may change as one focus fades to make way for a new direction. The year ahead is certain to be a very busy, dynamic, and significant period in your life.
You benefit from a harmonious Jupiter transit this year. Under this influence, you have a stronger than usual desire to improve, grow, and learn. This is a fortunate aspect that helps boost optimism and confidence, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve. Matters related to universities, higher education, organized religion, publishing, legal affairs, and foreign interests can be especially strong. It’s a favorable time to further your education, travel, or otherwise expand your personal horizons. You are likely to enjoy a larger perspective on matters that keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses.
There is added charm to the way you present your ideas this year, certainly helping to smooth over differences in your personal relationships. You are not only more diplomatic but you express yourself more creatively. It’s easier than usual to find satisfying channels for expressing yourself, and friendship opportunities open up. Love may be found through learning pursuits. Your communications — what you say and how you say it — help draw positive attention, good circumstances, and things you want into your life. Artistic or literary skills increase or are in stronger focus. You are talented at turning around a difficult situation and can excel at mediating, negotiating, liaising, and coming to mutually beneficial agreements this year.
There can be some blocks and frustrations when it comes to going after what you want at times this year. 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 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.
However, this can be a great year for motivation and ambition to do your best, whether this is about motivating yourself to improve your health and fitness or to be number one in your work or with business. As long as this is a gentle push that doesn’t stress you out, it’s a good time for doing a little more and feeling great about it.
Beginning in May 2018 and continuing until 2020, Neptune transits in harmony with your Sun, enhancing your creativity. A higher purpose to your life is what you seek during this period, and you rely more heavily upon your intuition in order to achieve it. You could find that your intuition is subtly enhanced and that 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 year 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 this year, and this can attract pleasantly unusual circumstances (and people) into your life.
While your energy and vitality fluctuate this year, when energy levels are up, you’re zealous, motivated, and especially productive. In fact, you can be extremely determined when you’re engaged. Creativity thrives, and you’re likely to make some changes to your personality or self-expression that enliven your life. Your social or romantic life gets a nice boost. Friendships and communications are highly favored. This can be a year of rewarding projects, conversations, and social connections.
2017 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.
2018 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.
