If Today is Your Birthday: March 23
The Year Ahead
Forecast for March 2008 to March 2009
Your birthday falls just after a Full Moon this year, suggesting a period of communication and teaching. You may be turned to for advice more frequently, and you are very willing to offer your help. This is a strong year for publicity and any other endeavors that involve spreading the word. As well, your ability to be objective–or to see the “big picture”–can be especially rewarding this year.
The Sun squares Pluto and Mars in your Solar Return chart this year. Your energy is intense and sometimes very insistent. Even without knowing it, you can provoke conflict with an intense aura. You can be very determined and willful at times. You can become obsessed with your work, and work with a sense of mission. Conversely, when placed in a work situation that is not meaningful, you become frustrated. It is important for you to latch onto something that is meaningful, and use your great energy to accomplish the work you set out to do.
Mercury conjunct Venus in your Solar Return chart adds charm to the way you present your ideas this year, certainly helping to smooth over differences in your personal relationships. This influence also helps you to express yourself more creatively. Mercury trine Mars suggests a swift wit. Mental pursuits, new learning, and all forms of intellectual activity are favored. Expect to be involved in lectures, debates, and discussions during the year. You can convey your ideas powerfully to others, and you may be invited to speak before a group. You are quick to take the initiative and to put your thoughts into action. Adventuresome travel may be in the offing. Young people may be particularly rambunctious.
Mercury and Venus also form creative aspects to Pluto, suggesting that you could renew and deepen love commitments or social connections this year. Strong and stimulating–even motivating–attractions to others are likely. Secret loves or attractions may develop and existing relationships tend to rise to a higher level of insight and understanding.
A harmonious aspect between Jupiter and Uranus suggests this could be a “lucky” year, although the luck is likely to come from a positive attitude and an enterprising spirit. It should be a strong year when sudden opportunities for advancement in different areas of your life appear. At the heart of this is your ability to recognize and capitalize upon opportunities and potentials. You are more open to new energies, approaches, and attitudes under this influence. Fortunate events occur as a direct result of your willingness to entertain the unusual and to think outside of the box. This aspect favors group activities, financial endeavors associated with groups or organizational efforts, educational pursuits, writing, publishing, speaking, and humanitarian efforts. A positive and optimistic outlook serves you especially well this year.
This could be a power year for you if you are able to harness your increased drive and set it to good use. Adopting a project or mission can be rewarding. You could find yourself embroiled in power struggles, however. Your charm is strong, and others warm up to your ideas readily. New insights into old problems figure strongly this year.
2008 is a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice – let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.
2009 will be a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.
