If Today is Your Birthday: October 1
The Year Ahead
Forecast for October 2008 to October 2009
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.
In your Solar Return chart this year, Mercury trines Neptune and the North Node, and intuition runs high. You are more sensitive artistically, your imagination is stirred, and you have an increased appreciation for subtleties. You are inspired and could even inspire others with your words. Some of your hunches could be prophetic. You are thinking more creatively, and express yourself with more sensitivity, compassion, and warmth. Mercury trine the Moon’s North Node suggests making contact through learning, communicating, and mental pursuits. It indicates an intellectually stimulating year in which the exchange of ideas with others figures prominently.
Mars is sextile Pluto in your Solar Return chart, and you are becoming more goal-oriented this year. Superficial goals no longer satisfy you. You want your objectives to reflect what youre really about, and you are likely to rid yourself of unsatisfying goals this year. You benefit from being more decisive than usual, and your ability to concentrate and focus helps you to achieve what you set out to do. A new project or goal begun this year has a good chance of being successful in the long term. Your sexual and physical activities tend to be more intense, passionate, and focused. Its an excellent year in which to make a lifestyle change, as your ability to concentrate on what really matters to you is enhanced.
With Jupiter in harmony to Saturn 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. 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.
Creativity soars in the year ahead, and new avenues for expressing yourself open up for you. Work satisfies for the most part, as you discover goals that suit your “true self” better. Your year is filled with fresh energy as you begin new “chapters” in your life. New beginnings figure strongly, and making new contacts through learning or mental pursuits is also prominent.
2008 is a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time, when it is easy to enjoy life and other people. Focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure. It is likely to be a rather lighthearted year, when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a good year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out, but avoid scattering your energies.
2009 will be 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.
