If Today is Your Birthday: March 25
The Year Ahead
Forecast for March 2009 to March 2010
The Moon is in its Balsamic phase in your Solar Return chart, marking this year the end of an important cycle, or stage of growth, in your life. You take more “down time” than normal, and this is natural, even good for you. This is a year when you are likely closing important projects or “chapters” in your life. You may be itching to do something new, but you are perhaps unsure about what that “something” is! The year, in a general sense, is best used as a meditative time for inner searching. It is a time for letting go of the past in order to prepare for the new. Although the new is still totally unrecognizable, it is important to allow the necessary surrender to the unknown.
Pluto will be transiting square your Sun towards the end of your birthday year (beginning in March 2010). Redefining and reshaping yourself and your life path come into play. 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 wilfulness and issues of power and competition–in others and in yourself.
The Sun aligns with Mercury and Venus, and these square Pluto. It’s bound to be a busy year in which communication, socializing, and attraction are especially important to you. You are especially interested in areas that require a good sense of proportion, balance, or a knack for doing things that are both functional and attractive. The tendency to read between the lines this year can most certainly stir up trouble if not kept in check! You are hungry for deeper meaning, but a suspicious attitude, or making mountains out of molehills, wont serve you well. Some secretiveness is possible. At times, you may have a troubled mind and some mental anxiety. On the other hand, it can suggest the ability to engage in deep, penetrating communication this year. Venus-Pluto can be erotic and intense, but the extreme passions it arouses can also express themselves in jealousies and possessiveness. Something tiny can trigger all sorts of buried emotions, and this can be very revealing! If you find yourself dredging up old hurts, examine the emotional “slush” you’ve been carrying around with you. Avoid taking it out on your partner or on yourself. This aspect can also suggest making a large purchase or payment and having to adjust your spending as a result.
With the Sun sextile the North Node of the Moon, you are likely to form new relationships or connections that further your spiritual growth, or to enhance existing relationships with a spirit of camaraderie. This aspect helps to smooth over some of the differences with people in authority. Events take place in which you feel like you are moving forward and growing into a new phase of your life.
With Venus also sextile the Moon’s North Node, you are very likely to attract loving relationships and/or new warm social contacts into your life. Efforts to smooth over challenges in partnerships are more likely to succeed. This is an excellent influence for negotiations, marriage, and business partnerships. With Venus retrograde in your Return chart, dealing with past issues when it comes to love and money is highlighted.
Your ambition is strongly stimulated this year, and possible conflicts with authority should be watched for. Intensity in your nature is the result of deep personal changes. It’s a good year for solving problems from the past and attempting to rid yourself of old habits that no longer serve you. It’s also strong for meeting new people that help you to move forward into unexplored territory.
2009 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.
2010 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. Positive new relationships are generally not formed in a Four personal year. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
