If Today is Your Birthday: March 23
The Year Ahead
Forecast for March 2009 to March 2010
Pluto is transiting square your Sun this year, and you are redefining and reshaping 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.
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 paths, 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.
With Mercury conjunct Uranus in your Return chart, there are bound to be some surprises in store. Your thinking is more clever and original this year, and there may be unanticipated opportunities for travel (or at least armchair travel), as well as new friendships. You are able to come up with original solutions to existing problems and brand new ideas more readily this year. Unusual, sudden, or eye-opening connections to younger people are likely to figure. This is a good year for projects involving technology or New Age topics. You may find more opportunities to attend meetings and other organized group activities, to communicate online, and to take part in activities involving computers, scientific projects, or metaphysics. Unexpected gains may be realized through such mediums. Your intuition is strong, and insights seem to come from “out of the blue”. Original, creative ideas are easy to come by this year.
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.
Saturn transits opposite your Sun beginning in December 2009, 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 are likely, which you meet head on. Your ambition is strongly stimulated, and possible conflicts with authority should be watched for. Intensity is the result of deep personal changes. It’s a good year for solving problems from the past and finally ridding yourself of old habits that no longer serve you. New and innovative ideas are easy to come by.
2009 is 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.
2010 will be a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is less active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract both things and people. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice – be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect.
