May 8 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: May 8
The Year Ahead
Forecast for May 2007 to May 2008
The Sun trine Moon in your Solar Return chart is a fortunate aspect. It suggests that your domestic and career needs are not in competition with one another this year. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa. This aspect is very powerful and rewarding. It suggests that you will be on top of your game this year, for the most part, and positive connections with others can be made rather easily. A comfortable level of personal popularity helps to keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there is less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you.
The Sun squares Saturn, Neptune, and Chiron, and also sextiles Uranus at the time of your birthday this year. This suggests receiving mixed signals from others and from circumstances in the year ahead, particularly regarding your life goals. Ambivalence is likely and could color many of your interactions. It can be challenging to make one particular decision and stick with it. You could find that others doubt you more often than not. Saturn and Neptune’s influences are contradictory. While a part of you is attempting to see things for what they are, another part is hanging onto dreams and ideals. Some disillusionments and reality shifts are bound to be a part of your life this year. Reversals tend to open up new possibilities and perhaps more rewarding paths, however.
Mercury sextiles Mars and squares Saturn and Neptune. Although you tend to swing from realistic thinking to impractical (or “fanciful”) thinking, you are able to find new insight into old problems, and your thinking processes during this period are likely to be especially active and progressive. Expect to be involved in lectures, debates, and discussions during the year. You can convey your ideas powerfully to others, and you may be invited to speak before a group. These influences can also indicate that the maturity of young people in your life becomes an issue or area of focus. Thinking in realistic and practical terms is your best bet, and the need for tangible results for your efforts is strong. Still, there can be misunderstandings, misinformation, wishful thinking, confusion, 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.
With Mars in a creative aspect to Saturn, work takes on definite shape this year, and you can see results from your efforts, or at least foresee success down the road. Traditional methods work, and thoroughness brings rewards. This is a year when employing time-honored strategies works best for you. It may not be a year in which to push forward aggressively or to break new ground. In fact, you may tend to enjoy sticking to mundane tasks because it makes you feel good to accomplish things and to have something to show for your work at the end of the day. Practice or refining a technique is favored now. Mars squares Pluto, however, which is an intense energy. It suggests that you have powerful, transformative energy at your disposal this year, and the results will depend on how you handle it. Channeled positively, you could move mountains when it comes to pushing your projects ahead. If mishandled, however, you could be argumentative, stressed, and hell-bent on having your way! Avoid taking extreme measures to make things happen your way, and avoid people who might be doing same. Deliberately trying to maneuver things in order to get the upper hand will be a lesson in frustration.
Venus opposes Pluto in your Solar Return chart, and intensity characterizes your personal relationships and romantic attachments. Venus-Pluto hard aspects can be erotic and intense, but the extreme passions they arouse can also express themselves in jealousies and possessiveness. With Pluto, jealousies are directly related to the fear of losing someone. 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.
Intensity characterizes your close personal relationships in the year ahead. You are attracted to people and circumstances that jolt you out of your routine. Superficial connections are no longer valued. If possible, try to avoid power plays and mind games this year…and the people who play them. You are likely to push yourself hard in order to go after what you want. Take time off for rest and relaxation.
2007 is 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.
2008 will be a Number Five year for you. Ruled by Mercury. This is a year of exploration and freedom. It’s a time when exploration and reaching out to others brings opportunities. It’s a good time to advertise and sell. Surprises are in store, and the routine is broken. This is a year when exciting relationships can be formed, or, if you are already in a partnership, new life is breathed into the relationship. Advice – explore, look for adventure, keep your eyes open for opportunities, mingle.
