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.
This can be a year in which you experience important turning points, or you could begin new projects or goals that have a long-term impact on your life.
Mercury harmonizing with Saturn in your Solar Return chart helps ground your thinking and often turns your thoughts to practical considerations during the period ahead. Advances in intellectual and mental pursuits are likely, as you make steady progress that has long-lasting results. It’s a good year in which to get organized, do detail work, and prepare for the future. Work done during this period will have tangible results in the future. Relationships with younger people in your life are solidified.
It is easier than ever to express your individuality in a manner that is true to you this year. This can be a year when bursts of restlessness, rebellion, and impatience figure prominently, however. You have a tendency to take risks and to act on sudden impulses without considering consequences. You assert your will and individuality powerfully, and you are ready to fight for freedom. There may be changes in work schedules, or life’s circumstances could challenge you in such a way that you need to change your goals or actions. This can also be a time when you tend to resist others and challenge them if they are trying to hold you back. Arguments and confrontations are likely. If you aren’t too rash or impulsive, you might be able to free yourself from restrictive circumstances. You could also have more courage than usual to do things that break the routine, and confrontations engaged in this year could clear the air and help you to move forward. There may be a significant break from the past this year as a result.
Venus-Uranus is a favorable influence for social meetings and events, and for situations that call for treating others with equality and respect. You may lose your fear of taking risks at this time, and happily embrace all that is new, unusual, and out-of-the-ordinary with regards to romantic involvements as well as financial undertakings. You are ready to experiment, but not necessarily ready to commit. This could be a good year for financial undertakings involving electronics, technology, the internet, metaphysics, and the arts, as well as group activities. You have a taste for the offbeat this year, and this energy can bring sudden or unexpected romance into your life, perhaps a scenario that feels like love at first sight. Childbirth is sometimes associated with this aspect.
Idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses surface this year. Making connections with others from different backgrounds may figure strongly. Widening your mind through unusual or different experiences can be part of the picture. You more easily make personal sacrifices for what you believe to be the better good this year.
This is a period of new beginnings or a sense that you’re beginning a brand new chapter in your life. It’s a powerful year for making lifestyle changes but you may do battle with variable energy levels and wasting time on anger. Watch also for impatient actions or trying to cut corners frequently, which can put unnecessary pressure on you. Your love or social life can be rewarding. The year is particularly strong for friendship. This can be a wonderful time for learning and connecting with people who inspire you. New interests are fun and exciting.
2018 is a Number Six year for you. Ruled by Venus. This is a year of relative contentment.

2019 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, observe, research, 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.
