Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The Sun in a waxing sextile to the Moon in your Solar Return chart has a fortunate influence on your year ahead. You can be especially productive this year, as in many ways you are starting fresh, but you have a rather clear vision of what you want to accomplish. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa, which helps to boost your confidence and happiness levels. You more readily accept that challenges are part of the natural cycle in life, which in turn helps you to meet them with confidence and to worry less. 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.
Pluto continues to oppose your Sun this year. It’s important to choose your battles wisely with this influence, 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 should be watched for. 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. 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! However, being aware of these tendencies can help you to overcome the negative side of this transit. This is a period for really getting to know yourself, what you’re capable of, and what you truly want from life. By the end of this transit, you’ll ideally be in a more personally powerful position, as you reclaim and fully own what you may have been giving away to others. You’re likely to feel more independent and self-aware.
This can be a busy period in your life. Your communications are more colorful, and you have more impact with what you communicate. You tend to seek out mental stimulation and activity. You are also likely to present yourself well during this period of your life, and personal magnetism is great.
Something big is in the works regarding your love life. You’ll have a chance to heal old wounds with regards to love this year. You’re also bound to find new ways of making money.
You are especially creative and expressive this year and your love life can be animated. You succeed best in fields or areas that allow you to make something beautiful, attractive, and/or entertaining. Personal magnetism is strong. You are playfully competitive and might win a major competition, if applicable. This is a good period for creative projects and joining with others in pursuing a common goal.
You often have a way with words this year, and verbalizing your feelings can be enjoyable. You are able to handle people well, and negotiations are favored in general. This can be a good year for dabbling in the arts, furthering a creative hobby or craft, and exploring new artistic interests. Even so, there can be distinct advantages to working in some level of solitude this year as it can be too easy to become distracted on social levels, which can impact your productivity.
However, watch for holding onto opinions and ideas too tightly. Attempts to make others believe the same things you do can be frustrating and unhealthy. Your style of communication may be too intense at times.
You may be attracted to people with artistic inclinations or to relationships in which there is an imbalance of power or a theme of saving or helping. The more romantic or idealistic side of your nature can emerge strongly now, perhaps inspired by someone you care about or someone you meet this year.
You have a strong need for affection during this period of life, and you tend to be especially generous with those you love. Watch for overindulgence in this respect, but enjoy the good vibes as well. You can do especially well working with people you love.
Watch for impatience or fits of temper that work against you this year. There may be changes in work schedules or life’s circumstances could challenge you in such a way that you need to change your goals or actions. This can also be a time when you tend to resist others and challenge them if they are trying to hold you back. Energy fluctuates this year. If you can avoid rash or impulsive moves, you could enjoy more courage than usual to do things that break the routine or clear the air.
Your unique manner of expressing and asserting yourself is in focus and appreciated this year. Suppressed anger is more effectively released in creative ways. Physical healing can help inner healing, and vice versa.
This is a period of new beginnings and fresh starts, and can be a busier year than usual. Love and social matters can be up and down, but also quite magical at times. Personal appeal is excellent. New and interesting experiences are likely, but energy can fluctuate and impulsive moves should be watched for. This is a strong year for taking up interesting studies and for meeting people through artistic interests and hobbies. Watch for putting too much pressure on yourself and on your relationships.
2016 is a Number Six year for you. Ruled by Venus. This is a year of relative contentment. It is a time when love is the easiest to attract, and partnerships formed under this vibration have a better chance for longevity. You are able to attract others, and material things as well, this year. This is a good year for establishing harmony in the family and in the home. Advice – develop existing relationships, be positive and receptive because these kinds of energies help you to attract what you desire.
2017 will be 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.
