October 12 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: October 12
The Year Ahead
Forecast for October 2007 to October 2008
Your birthday this year occurs just 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.
The Sun is sextile Jupiter near the time of your birthday, suggesting that you are more aware of moral issues, and have a stronger than usual desire to improve and learn this year. This is a fortunate aspect that implies optimism and confidence are with you, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve this year. Your social life will likely increase and bring you in contact with more influential, powerful, or simply happy and helpful people. Travel opportunities are likely. It is not uncommon to marry, have children, graduate college, increase income, do freelance work, get a promotion, publish a book, or receive public recognition under this influence. Matters related to universities, higher education, organized religion, publishing, legal affairs, and foreign interests proceed smoothly. This is an excellent year in which to seek advanced training or to further your education. Some form of recognition for your work or for past good deeds may be forthcoming this year. Fortunate circumstances arise from a positive attitude as well as sincere self-expression. You are likely to enjoy good humor, optimism, and a larger perspective on matters that keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses and strains.
The Sun is also in creative aspect with Neptune. A higher purpose to your life is what you seek, and you rely more heavily upon your intuition in order to achieve it. A more sensitive–even mysterious–persona is projected this year, and this can attract pleasantly unusual circumstances (and people) into your life. You will want to reserve time alone–away from the hectic pace of life–for reflection, prayer, and meditation.
Work takes on definite shape this year, and you can see results from your efforts, or at least foresee success down the road. This gives you a sense of responsibility and a feeling of directedness and purposefulness. This is a good year to temper your energy and to exercise better judgment. It’s also a good year to get and feel organized. 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 period in which to push forward aggressively or to break new ground. In fact, you may tend to enjoy sticking to mundane tasks because it satisfies you 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.
Venus conjuncts Saturn, suggesting that problems in personal relationships that have been swept under the carpet may surface this year, and you are ready to face them. Dissatisfaction with loved ones becomes more glaring. Support from older people or authority figures may come by way of solid advice or tangible help. Renewed ties to old friends are possible, or a new sense of responsibility in existing friendships. Venus also sextiles Mars, adding creativity to the mix. Venus, the goddess of love, in harmonious contact with phallic Mars signifies pleasant sexual tension, libidinal attraction, and playful competitiveness in relationships. Romance is in the air, as this aspect increases your sensuality, sex appeal, and animal magnetism. Marriage could occur in such a year. Now is also a good time to engage in creative projects and to join with others in pursuing a common goal. If you are involved in competition, you could come out a winner. Venus is also conjunct the South Node of the Moon, which suggests the need to review your love relationships and connections in order to examine whether they are hindering your personal growth.
With Mercury in harmonious aspect to Mars in your Solar Return chart, you are likely to be more actively involved in lectures, debates, and discussions during the year. You can convey your ideas well to others. Travel, particularly work-related, may be in the offing. Relationships with younger people may be especially rewarding. The ability to put your ideas into action is with you.
With Mars trine the Moon’s North Node, you may be actively involved with teamwork and collaboration with others this year. This can also indicate an increased need for sexual union, as it stirs the passions and generally indicates ease in satisfying one’s desires through positive connections with others. This aspect is one indication of getting engaged, married, the beginning of a significant new relationship, or the intensification of an existing romance.
You are more able to rise above petty problems and stresses this year, freeing yourself up to enjoy life from a broad, happy perspective. Getting organized and working steadily towards well-defined goals is also featured. Mental pursuits thrive, you can turn your ideas into action quite readily, and an organized approach to life takes you places. Career and life path opportunities present themselves. There is nothing light or superficial about your relationships during this period of your life! Reviewing your ties is likely, and problems are revealed in your affectionate life. Making changes is necessary, but overall positive.
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.
