Your Birthday Year Forecast:
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 usual, and this is natural, even good for you. This is a year when you are likely closing important projects or “chapters” in your life. This is an important year for reorienting yourself – discovering what you want, and identifying what you need to do in order to move forward more positively.
This can be a period in which you discover or develop natural talents. You’re likely to solve long-standing problems, and obstacles are removed so that you can pursue your dreams.
This is a strong year for tapping into your inner genius or personal potential and putting it to work for you. You can be determined to take better care of yourself, and discoveries made this year can fuel or reignite your motivation to pursue a particular path. There can be a real sense of mission this year.
You can be especially successful in pursuits that involve entertainment, the arts, and creativity. You are drawing opportunities to you in these areas this year.
You are more imaginative and attuned to the world of beauty and romance in the year ahead. Gentleness with others is the best way to harness this energy and to attract what you want into your life. There could be truly “magical” times on a romantic and social level. You are especially romantic this year, and you are likely to 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.
However, there can be some intensity experienced in a relationship this year, which can pull up jealousies and matters of trust. You might experience compulsive attractions and attachments, or attraction to complicated love relationships. The need for deeper intimacy is present, but fear of this closeness may be just as strong. Alternatively, there can be some tension over your personal finances this year, and/or need to make a large payment that necessitates changes in your spending habits. Finances may be complicated. For some, there can be power struggles with money.
You are likely to be popular with others when it comes to your ideas and communications, especially as you are communicating with optimism and cheerfulness, and this can bring rewarding experiences and opportunities into your life. It can be a good time for teaming up with a partner to learn together or to pursue a common project or goal. There can be a good feeling of being backed and supported.
Even so, with Mercury in challenging aspect to Neptune in your Solar Return, some difficulties with communications are likely. There can be misunderstandings, misinformation, wishful thinking, confusion, carelessness, and deception. Verify the facts before making decisions and avoid taking precipitate action. Read all the fine print before signing a contract or making an agreement.
As well, there can be some ups and downs in the year ahead as your plans and efforts meeting with resistance. At times, circumstances seem to block your efforts to assert yourself, and you might feel like more effort than usual is required to complete tasks, which could lead to some frustration. Patience is necessary because progress may not always be steady, and energy can be stop and go. Plans don’t always go smoothly with Mars in difficult aspect to Saturn in your Solar Return chart.
There can be a problem with overspending or overdoing pleasure this year. However, you are more strongly dedicated to work, which can help balance you out.
In partnerships and close relationships, you may be working together on a big project or doing a lot more together. Otherwise, excess energy could lead to some restlessness and disagreements. Overall, however, there is good energy for partnering this year.
There can be nice advances in the areas of health and healing as well as an improved spirit and positive lifestyle changes this year. There may be chances to teach or inspire others with your unique insights and perspective.
This can be an important year for tying up loose ends or for finalizing important projects. Partnering up to get something specific accomplished can be very successful. While there can be distinct opportunities on a mental level, watch your communications, as you can sometimes come across as too exacting or even critical. As well, conserving energy is important, as you can experience real ups and downs in the energy department.
