The Year Ahead
Forecast for November 2006-November 2007
Your power of attraction this year is quite strong, and you are likely to be more emotionally tied up in relationships, partnerships, and issues of cooperation and collaboration than usual. You may be more socially active or do some work with the public. Because the Sun conjuncts Jupiter and squares Saturn around the time of your birthday this year, you are likely to experience a great urge to expand, but also to face some roadblocks in your attempts to do so. Some re-structuring of your life and of your goals is now in order. Benefits will most certainly come your way, perhaps at a price, but well worth it.
You may be looking for new challenges, sometimes because you are forced to do so (because things are not going exactly as you had planned). You have a desire to grow and expand, but your attitude is tempered with some caution and feelings of restriction. It is best to breathe new life into old plans rather than to strike out with an entirely new plan altogether. Take steps to grow, but don’t overextend yourself at this time or you are bound to face frustrations. In terms of life goals and ego matters, you could find that you are occasionally in the position to make choices in which both alternatives are desirable, but you must choose one at the expense of the other. You need to assess areas of your life that have become dysfunctional and, in the process, you may need to sacrifice a material benefit for a spiritual good (or vice versa). As you face obstacles to your goals, you begin to see the tools with which you have to overcome them. A dose of realism may seem forced upon you from time to time this year, but your efforts to measure up to expectations can ultimately increase confidence in your ability to be responsible for yourself. You may lose yourself in work and responsibilities and take yourself too seriously! Recognize that it is unlikely that life itself, and circumstances in your life, are challenging. You are challenging yourself by expecting too much. Your ego may be a little frail at this point, and, as a result, you may be harder on yourself than you need be. Much can be accomplished this year. Although you may not see immediate results for your efforts, important groundwork can be laid for the future.
The Sun also trines the North Node of the Moon, and you are likely to form new relationships or connections that further your spiritual growth, or to enhance existing relationships with a spirit of camaraderie. Events take place in which you feel like you are moving forward and growing into a new phase of your life. Mercury’s trine to Uranus in your Solar Return chart indicates that there could be unexpected and pleasant news this year that enhances your life. You receive new insight into old problems, and your thinking processes during this period are likely to be especially original. You may find more opportunities to attend meetings and other organized group activities, to communicate online, and to take part in activities involving computers, scientific projects, or metaphysics. Unexpected gains may be realized through such mediums. Your intuition is strong, and insights seem to come from “out of the blue”. Original, creative ideas are easy to come by this year. An open mind is the key to success this year! However, Mars square Neptune cautions you to be aware of a tendency to be attracted to impractical ventures. You may find that is too easy to waste your time and energy. You may also experience passive-aggressiveness in others, which impacts your life in frustrating ways, or you could find relationships with others confusing and hard to define. Although you may enjoy an increase in your intuitive capabilities, you may also be too open to influence so that fears or delusions impact your ability to see your life clearly. This could also be a year when you are more creative than usual.
The urge to expand your personal circle and to socialize is great. Although you may not be able to “play” as often as you’d like, new people will enter your life and you are likely to find much enjoyment with them. Others are often looking on you favorably, particularly friends and lovers (or potential lovers). A cheerful and hopeful outlook increases your chances of gaining cooperation from others. You could find that you are more open and trusting of friends and lovers, and that you easily win others trust. Financial benefits may come your way. Some people fall in love under a Venus-Jupiter influence.
2006 is 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.
2007 will be a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.
