The Year Ahead
Forecast for June 2009 to June 2010
The New Moon in your Solar Return chart suggests that you will instinctively begin a new phase of your life this year. A decisively new direction has come about in your life. This can be an emotionally stimulating time in which you feel the urge to initiate and project, even if you are not quite clear about what you are projecting. Much of the energy in your life can have a magical quality to it as things are just automatically going in a certain direction. It is important to be intuitive at this time and allow the natural course to show you the way to the next step. Surprises (mostly very pleasant) pepper your year. New beginnings are in order, and you are bound to feel some level of excitement as the year unfolds.
Venus is aligned with Mars in your Solar Return chart, and romantic and creative passions figure strongly this year. New beginnings on the romantic front are likely. If you are not currently in a relationship, you are more likely to make the first move and go after what or who you want. Your affections are strongly stimulated, and you are more acutely aware of your powers of attraction. Romance, love, and sexuality occupy your mind more than usual. You can enjoy an increase in personal magnetism (as well as libido!), but be wary of competitiveness or tension in existing love relationships, as this aspect ignites your passions in general, whether theyre feelings of love or anger! Now is also a good time to engage in creative projects and to join with others in pursuing a common goal. If you are involved in competition, you could come out a winner.
Both Venus and Mars are modified by a trine to Saturn, suggesting that certain elements of your social and financial life are stabilized, secured, and more reliable this year. You may solidify a romantic relationship under this influence, or become involved with a mature partner. You handle money more carefully this year. Work takes on definite shape this year, and you can see results from your efforts, or at least foresee success down the road. This gives you a sense of responsibility and a feeling of directedness and purposefulness. t may not be a year in which to push forward aggressively or to break new ground. In fact, you may tend to enjoy sticking to mundane tasks because it makes you feel good to accomplish things and to have something to show for your work at the end of the day. Practice or refining a technique is favored now. Venus and Mars are in hard aspect to Pluto as well, and you may be dealing with intensity, even primal feelings and responses, in your relationships. Learning to let go of controlling or manipulative behavior in relationships is a theme.
Pluto continues to transit opposite your Sun until December. You are likely to experience events that highlight the necessity to share and trust. Events and circumstances are such that you learn about your own personal strength. You may have to deal with willfulness and issues of power and competition this year–in others and in yourself. There are likely to be times when you feel on edge, volatile, or even threatened. There is an inner drama taking place this year, and a feeling that external circumstances are undermining your own feeling of powerfulness. In the process, you may be able to get in touch with your internal motivations. A tendency to want to control your life through some form of manipulation is strong during this influence. Meeting with obstacles in your path, however, can force you into the position of using all of your resources to fight back, and you can discover resources you never knew you had in the process. You may slowly uncover a new direction in your career–one that reflects more of the true you. You may also experience tangles in your close personal relationships, perhaps more so with males. Watch for jealousies and manipulative behavior. Things will not go in your favor if you resort to tactics to get what you want. If you have been feeling somewhat of a victim in your relationships or job position, for example, then this will be a year when you feel it more acutely and feel the need to do something about it. You could have problems staying calm, cool, and collected this year.
A square of transiting Saturn to your Sun in your Solar Return chart occurs starting in November 2009. This influence suggests going through some reality checks, particularly with regard to your personal and professional goals. As you face obstacles to your goals, you begin to see the tools with which you have to overcome them. Your efforts to measure up to expectations can ultimately increase your confidence in your ability to be responsible for yourself. You are likely to have new or increased responsibilities now, and it might take some time to get adjusted to them. The need to re-structure and re-organize your life will be apparent. Some of the reality checks are a direct result of a rather rebellious stage that you have recently gone through–a time when life seemed to speed up in order to give you more courage. Now, life slows down a little and you are more cautious.
Jupiter conjunct Chiron and Neptune in your Solar Return chart suggests that idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses have more significance in your life this year. You may experience an increased need for greater understanding, wisdom, and awareness, as well as increased interest in the healing arts and holistic health this year. It may be a time during which you reconsider or revamp your personal belief system. Everyday, ordinary life may not always satisfy, as you hunger for a more idealistic life. Neptune moving very slowly at the time of your birthday this year places emphasis on spirituality and creativity on one hand, and the possibility of confusion and illusion on the other.
Romantic and creative passions are prominent themes in your life this year. Exploring your feelings, and a spirited, sensual approach to relating, figure strongly. Creative impulses are potent and powerful. New beginnings and a sense of starting a brand new chapter in your life are with you this year. A slow but steady approach to accomplishing your goals will bring the most success.
2009 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.
2010 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.
