If Today is Your Birthday: March 30
The Year Ahead
Forecast for March 2009 to March 2010
The lunar phase at the time of your birthday this year is the Crescent Moon phase. This is a year in which you are striving to break free from habitual behavior patterns in order to free yourself up for new opportunities. While you may encounter some resistance from others, your path is to push forward and uncover new ways of expressing yourself.
The Sun aligns with Mercury and Venus. It’s bound to be a busy year in which communication, socializing, and attraction are especially important to you. This influence 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. You are particularly interested in areas that require a good sense of proportion, balance, or a knack for doing things that are both functional and attractive. Aesthetics are more important to you than usual.
The Sun and Mercury in hard aspect to Neptune suggest that you could be undergoing confusion about what you want from life, where you are headed, and how to go about satisfying your ego. There is a reason behind this “identity crisis”–you are learning to let go of ego attachments. Your self-image is being re-worked, and you are becoming more sensitive to a greater, perhaps more spiritual, sense of purpose.
Venus in square to 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. Venus in hard aspect to Jupiter also suggests some inclination towards overdoing pleasures. It will be especially important to avoid overspending this year.
With the Sun, Mercury, and Venus 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. Attracting loving relationships and/or new warm social contacts into your life comes easily. Efforts to smooth over challenges in partnerships are more likely to succeed. This is an excellent influence for negotiations, marriage, and business partnerships. 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. You’ll also be making contact through learning, communicating, and mental pursuits. With Venus retrograde in your Return chart, dealing with past issues when it comes to love and money is highlighted.
Taking new approaches to your life comes naturally to you this year. An intellectually and socially stimulating year is ahead. The exchange of ideas with others figures prominently. Meeting others halfway is a focus. Socializing is especially important to you during this period. Intensity is likely in your love life. It’s a strong year for meeting new people that help you to move forward into unexplored territory.
2009 is 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.
2010 will be 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.
