If Today is Your Birthday: March 25
The Year Ahead
Forecast for March 2008 to March 2009
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 and determination 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 and Venus also conjunct Uranus, suggesting that attractions may develop suddenly. Relationships that don’t support the individuality of both people involved are not easily tolerated this year. Your ideas and thoughts are inspired and on the unusual side. You are especially clever and have a good sense of humor. You succeed in areas that require spontaneity and the ability to quickly solve problems or come up with creative ideas. Stimulating new friendships are likely.
Whirlwind changes in your love life and/or financial state are likely this year with Venus conjunct Uranus in your Solar Return chart. It may be that you experience sudden changes or breakups with a friend or lover. However, the chance of a sudden new friendship is just as likely. At the root of this is a stronger taste for the unusual. What is familiar is less exciting to you than what is new and different. If a relationship seems to threaten your sense of freedom, you may have an easy time separating from it. Some fireworks in both your social and financial lives are to be expected.
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.
However, Mars in challenging aspect to Neptune cautions you to be aware of a tendency to be attracted to impractical ventures. You may experience passive-aggressiveness in others, which impacts your life in frustrating ways, or you could find relationships with others confusing and hard to define. Although you may enjoy an increase in your intuitive capabilities, you could also be too open to influence so that fears or delusions impact your ability to see your life clearly. This could also be a year in which you are considerably more creative.
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, and channeling your energy into constructive projects is necessary. You could find yourself embroiled in power struggles, however. You have a hard time accepting the routine in romantic relationships. 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 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.
2009 will be 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.
