The Year Ahead
Forecast for November 2008 to November 2009
A trine between the Sun and the Moon in your Solar Return chart this year is a fortunate aspect. It suggests that your domestic and career needs are not in competition with one another in the year ahead. 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 fairly 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!
Exciting (not jarring) changes and new interests characterize the period ahead with transiting Uranus trine the Sun this year. Its easier than ever to express your unique individuality, and if this involves changing careers or jobs, a new love affair, or an entirely new hobby, it’s something that takes you forward into unexplored territory. You are more willing to adapt to new circumstances, ideas, and unfamiliar situations this year. It’s a good time to join organizations and groups and to attend meetings or social events. You are able to find creative solutions to problems now. Flexibility is the key to success under this influence. Your personality is sparkling this year, which is sure to attract new circumstances and people into your life.
Still, the Sun in square aspect to Neptune cautions you to watch for a vulnerability to delusions or misunderstandings. Your energy levels are likely to be quite variable this year–waxing and waning in a moody fashion. Inspiration comes from unusual sources, but you may find that is too easy to waste your time and energy, perhaps due to occasional periods when you seem to lack drive and direction. This could also be a year when you are more creative, yet not always in a reliable or organized manner.
With Mercury in harmonious aspect to Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus, you are filled with constructive, workable, and profitable ideas this year! There may be unexpected and pleasant news this year that enhances your life. You are able to find new insight into old problems, and your thinking processes during this period are likely to be especially original. This is a good year for projects involving technology or New Age topics. Advances in intellectual and mental pursuits are likely, as you make steady progress that has long-lasting results.
Your ability to express yourself and to solve problems is enhanced this year. You may have opportunities to travel, and matters related to publishing, teaching, and writing should go especially well. You may find that you have the right information at the right time this year. You could also have big ideas and plans, as your mind is filled with ideas. Work, especially in communications, goes well. Relationships with young people may be particularly rewarding and positive. An optimistic attitude serves you very well this year. The desire to expand your mind is strong, and this is a good year to take up studies or to further your education. It’s also excellent for teaching and speaking. With greater receptivity to new ideas and perspectives, you are more likely to attract positive energies into your life.
Venus in creative aspect to Uranus suggests that 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.
With Jupiter in harmonious aspect to Saturn and Uranus at the time of your birthday this year, a period of constructive accomplishment is ahead. In general, you are practical, realistic, and your judgment is especially sound–and you derive much satisfaction from your work. An enterprising spirit this year can really take you places. Sudden opportunities for advancement in different areas of your life appear. At the heart of this is your ability to recognize and capitalize upon opportunities and potentials. Fortunate events occur as a direct result of your willingness to entertain the unusual and to think outside of the box. The key to harnessing this wonderful energy is to identify and find pleasure in the simple things that make you happy. A nice balance between optimism and practicality is with you this year.
Although you could struggle with variable energy levels and some disappointments regarding career goals, overall you’re more enterprising this year than ever. A balanced approach to life, in terms of realistic expectations, is the best approach for maximizing success. Your ideas are golden this year–innovative yet also practical and “doable”. Relationships are exciting, fresh, and invigorating. Overall, your relationships improve due to a sense of inner peace and harmony.
