If Today is Your Birthday: March 18
The Year Ahead
Forecast for March 2007 to March 2008
The New Moon Solar Eclipse 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.
Pluto squares the Sun around the time of your birthday this year. You are no stranger to this energy that also occurred in last year’s Solar Return. You continue to redefine and reshape yourself and your life path. This suggests that some obsessive behavior is possible–perhaps you are trying to cling to a behavior that suited you in the past, but that has now outgrown its purpose or is in need of an overhaul. Your emotions tend to be turbulent. You are likely to experience events that highlight the necessity to share and trust. This year, 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–in others and in yourself. By October, when this influence lifts, you are stronger, more gutsy, and expressing yourself more authentically.
Venus trines Pluto and semi-squares Uranus at the time of your birthday this year, suggesting that romantic relationships and attractions have a fated quality to them this year. This could be a year in which you fall in love, and this could be with a person, an activity, or a cause! Meeting someone who transforms your life, and more specifically your values and attitude towards love, is possible under this influence. Strong existing relationships are likely to grow and transform in rewarding ways, as you are more open than usual to intensity and passion. Your finances could also improve dramatically this year. At the same time, some impulsiveness with your social relationships and/or finances is also possible. Conflicting urges to deepen an attachment, as well as to avoid ties that bind, can be confusing, or could occur in separate events this year.
Mercury’s sextiles to Venus and Pluto indicate a generally clear mind and improved relationships with younger people. Communications tend to be effective this year, and your mind is sharp, investigative, and focused. Jupiter trines Saturn in your Solar Return chart, helping you to focus on constructive goals with pleasure. You are more able to find pleasure in practical affairs.
Mars aligns with Chiron at the time of your birthday this year, endowing you with a more unique manner of expressing and asserting yourself. Suppressed anger is more effectively released this year in creative ways. It is easier than ever to express your individuality, as well as your sexuality, in a manner that is true to you.
Both Mercury and Venus are in the first degree of a sign in your Solar Return chart, continuing the theme of starting fresh.
You are instinctively beginning a new phase of your life this year. Changes in how you deal with authority figures as well as how you define yourself to others are likely this year. Your self-expression and occasional willfulness may surprise people around you. Your mental faculties are especially sharp and new projects are on your plate. Romantic excitement and passion also figure prominently in the year ahead.
2007 is a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time, when it is easy to enjoy life and other people. Focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure. It is likely to be a rather lighthearted year, when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a good year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out, but avoid scattering your energies.
2008 will be 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.
