The Year Ahead
Forecast for May 2010 to May 2011
If You Were Born Today, May 16: Exceptionally talented in the creative arts, including music, you are very able to focus your energies enough to make a success out of yourself in the arts. Your personality is colorful, yet somewhat reserved and very poised. At times you can be so one-track minded that you can get into a rut. Charming and romantic by nature, you are likeable and personable. Famous people born today: Liberace, Janet Jackson, Megan Fox, Henry Fonda, Pierce Brosnan, Debra Winger, Tori Spelling.
Your Birthday Year Forecast: Your birthday this year occurs shortly after a New Moon, suggesting a time of new beginnings and fresh energy. You are instinctively starting a new phase in your life. It’s time to give your life a makeover and to branch out into the untried.
Some form of recognition for your work or for past good deeds may be forthcoming this year. Fortunate circumstances arise from a positive attitude as well as sincere self-expression. The Sun trine Saturn helps you to stay on track and to meet your responsibilities. Your concern for your future this year is stronger than usual, and you may find that projects you start, or investments you make, this year will benefit you for years to come. The key to success in this period of your life is adopting a realistic, practical, disciplined, and orderly approach to your life, while maintaining a healthy positive frame of mind.
You can focus excess mental energy into something constructive, possibly working especially hard on a project, this year. You may gain new insights into your life this year. You can be especially persuasive and convincing in your communications, whether written or oral, and your perceptions are especially acute. You are inclined to do a lot of “digging”, researching, analyzing, investigating, and getting to the bottom of things. Increased psychological awareness of yourself and others can benefit you greatly, and employing strategy in your decision making is easier than usual this year. Relationships with younger people may be especially rewarding and meaningful.
There may be a project, idea, or person that demands much of your attention and that occupies much of your thoughts. It’s a strong year for any project or studies that require concentrated effort. You are especially resourceful.
When it comes to love and romance, there can be some struggle between the desire for freedom and your responsibilities. Some of you might be dealing with overblown expectations, or struggling with whether to stick with the same routine or to break free and explore new ground. Finding a way to strike a balance between self-gratification and the obligations of daily life will be essential. Tapping into your imagination and the world of beauty and romance, as well as gentleness with others, will help you to attract what and who you want into your life. You might idealize and expand a relationship through sensitive interactions and a more giving approach. Benefits come through paying attention to your dreams and intuitions, as well as through creativity.
Saturn in opposition to Uranus around the time of your birthday suggests some restlessness. Attempts to assert your individuality, freedom, and originality undermine your feelings of groundedness and security. Yet, you are not satisfied when you conform. There may be sudden and unexpected twists that force you to do something different or that help free yourself from old habits. Adjusting your plans is in order, and striking a balance between convention and innovation is the challenge. Setbacks tend to be temporary and often lead to new, more creative paths or solutions. Ambivalence is likely and could color many of your interactions.
Freedom and adventure are big themes in your life this year, and you may be balancing this desire with the need to fill your obligations. Fresh energy is with you, and you feel as if you are starting a whole new chapter in your life. Projects that require concentration and focus will be especially rewarding. Social and romantic relationships are in focus, bringing some ups and downs. Finding a balance is a theme.
2010 is a Number Six year for you. Ruled by Venus. This is a year of relative contentment. It is a time when love is the easiest to attract, and partnerships formed under this vibration have a better chance for longevity. You are able to attract others, and material things as well, this year. This is a good year for establishing harmony in the family and in the home. Advice – develop existing relationships, be positive and receptive because these kinds of energies help you to attract what you desire.
2011 will be a Number Seven year for you. Ruled by Neptune. This is a year of preparation, chance, and refinement. It is not a time of dramatic changes. Instead, it’s a year when reflection on the past is helpful, and when refinements to your life path should be made. It’s a good year to study and analyze. Unexpected twists to your life story and “chance” meetings are probable. Advice – take stock of your life in order to prepare for more exciting years to come, examine the past and plan for the future, get in touch with your deepest needs and uncover your personal power, don’t strain yourself or actively try to expand.
