If Today is Your Birthday: March 20
The Year Ahead
Forecast for March 2009 to March 2010
Pluto squares the Sun around the time of your birthday this year. You are no stranger to this energy that has been in your life since early 2008. However, you will be officially finished with this long-term transit in September. Until then, 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. 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. The good news is that you are more equipped this year to deal with it.
Mars sextiles Pluto in your Solar Return chart this year–an influence that certainly helps you deal with the Pluto transit to your Sun mentioned above. With this energy, you are more goal-oriented, as superficial goals no longer satisfy you. You want your objectives to reflect what youre really about, and you are likely to rid yourself of old habits that no longer serve your purpose. You benefit from being more decisive than usual, and your ability to concentrate and focus helps you to achieve what you set out to do. A new project or goal begun this year has a good chance of being successful and long-lasting. Your sexual and physical activities tend to be more intense, passionate, and focused. Its an excellent year in which to make a lifestyle change, as your ability to concentrate on what really matters to you is enhanced.
With Venus retrograde in your Return chart, dealing with past issues when it comes to love and money is highlighted. Venus in hard aspect to Neptune suggests dealing with illusions on a relationship level, and learning to discern between what you want to see and what truly is.
Mercury conjuncts Uranus and opposes Saturn in your Solar Return chart, and your mind can be quite restless this year. Striking a balance between convention and innovation is the challenge. Setbacks in communications tend to be temporary and often lead to new, more creative paths or solutions. Ambivalence is likely and could color many of your decisions and projects. It can be challenging at times to make one particular decision and stick to it.
Saturn transits opposite your Sun in November, bringing some increased responsibilities into your life. Your efforts to measure up to expectations can ultimately increase your confidence in your ability to be responsible for yourself. The need to re-structure and re-organize your life will be apparent, particularly in the realm of close personal relationships.
You are especially determined to meet your goals this year. Some increased responsibilities in your life are likely, which you meet head on. Your ambition is strongly stimulated, and possible conflicts with authority should be watched for. It’s a good year for solving problems from the past and finally ridding yourself of old habits that no longer serve you.
2009 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.
2010 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.
