October 13 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: October 13
The Year Ahead
Forecast for October 2009 to October 2010
If You Were Born Today, October 13: You have a sharp mind and a great love of debate, justice, and the law. Always seeking answers and balance, you are inquisitive and not afraid to express contrary opinions, yet you do so in a rather tactful manner. You are both practical and responsible. Not afraid of hard work, you can be quite successful in your career, although you need a strong sense that you are moving forward in order to feel motivated. If you are expressing a tendency to scatter your energies, it’s a sure sign that you are lacking this kind of motivation. With your quiet demeanor, it might surprise people who don’t know you well that you possess strong convictions. Famous people born today: Chris Carter, Paul Simon, Margaret Thatcher, Sammy Hagar, Marie Osmond, Jerry Rice, Sacha Baron Cohen, Lenny Bruce.
Your Birthday Year Forecast: The Sun in harmonious aspect to the Moon in your Solar Return chart is a pleasant aspect, suggesting 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. You are likely to 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 keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there will be less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!
The Sun is trine Jupiter, Chiron, and Neptune 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. 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 happy and helpful people. Travel opportunities are likely. 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. 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. You are likely to be recognized for your more unique qualities. Your personal magnetism runs quite high. You have the chance to improve your relationships with others–and with yourself! A humbly confident approach to life earns you respect. You tend to be looked upon favorably by others. You have the chance to shine, largely because you are projecting yourself with self-respect and modesty at once. You are especially appealing and charming just by being yourself. Opportunitiesboth personal and professionalare likely to present themselves as a result. You are not looking for credit for what you do, which frees you up to get it anyhow! Teaching others may be part of the picture, informally or formally. 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 and meditation.
Mercury’s square to Pluto suggests intensity of thought processes as well as communications. Try to avoid power struggles when it comes to opinions and ideas.
Venus is opposite Uranus in your Return chart. Some disruptions in your friendships and attachments are possible this year. Unusual attractions (to people and things) can have you acting on a whim. You may deal with freedom versus closeness issues in your relationships. It may be that you experience sudden changes or breakups with a friend or lover. However, the chance of a sudden new friendship is just as likely. At the root of this is a stronger taste for the unusual. What is familiar is less exciting to you than what is new and different. If a relationship seems to threaten your sense of freedom, you may have an easy time separating from it. Some fireworks in both your social and financial lives are to be expected, keeping things fresh and exciting. The best way to handle this energy is to open yourself up to the need for change in your love life or with regards to how you spend and make money–or both. Get in touch with this need for new experiences and/or attitudes so that changes are not forced upon you.
Venus is also conjunct Saturn, which brings the need to “get real” in your personal relationships. Changes may be in store, and decisions might need to be made whether to leave a friendship behind or renew its unspoken vows on some level–to reinvent it, in other words. A sextile to Mars suggests a good level of harmony and magnetic appeal, so the outcome is likely to be strong.
With Venus trine the Moon’s North Node, you are very likely to attract loving relationships and/or new warm social contacts into your life. Your popularity increases and efforts to smooth over challenges in partnerships are more likely to succeed. This is an excellent influence for negotiations, marriage, and business partnerships.
Mars trines Uranus and sextiles Saturn in your Solar Return chart this year, and suggests that you work hard and at your own pace this year. You will likely experience bursts of creativity and energy that help you to further your goals. Healthy risk-taking is likely this year, as you are more able to spot an opportunity when you see one. It is easier than usual to break free from habits that have previously held you back from going after what you want in life. 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. Refining and improving techniques are favored this year.
Mars conjunct the South Node of the Moon suggests strong passions but that are sometimes expressed at the wrong times, and essentially working against you. Learning to express anger appropriately will be important this year.
Saturn in opposition to Uranus around the time of your birthday suggests some restlessness. Attempts to assert your individuality, freedom, and originality undermine your feelings of groundedness and security. Yet, you are not satisfied when you conform. There may be sudden and unexpected twists that force you to do something different or that help free yourself from old habits. Adjusting your plans is in order, and striking a balance between convention and innovation is the challenge. Setbacks tend to be temporary and often lead to new, more creative paths or solutions. Ambivalence is likely and could color many of your interactions.
New contacts in your life are warm, friendly, growth-oriented, and stimulating. Creative instincts are strong. Your enthusiasm, vitality, and creativity are unmistakable this year. You need to feel that you can move and express yourself freely in order for you to succeed, and thinking outside of the box is natural for you. New ideas are easy to come by, and improving and refining your skills are in focus. Excitement is likely in your love life, and changes need to be made in order to improve your relationships.
2009 is a Number Seven year for you. Ruled by Neptune. This is a year of preparation, chance, and refinement. It is not a time of dramatic changes. Instead, it’s a year when reflection on the past is helpful, and when refinements to your life path should be made. It’s a good year to study and analyze. Unexpected twists to your life story and “chance” meetings are probable. Advice – take stock of your life in order to prepare for more exciting years to come, examine the past and plan for the future, get in touch with your deepest needs and uncover your personal power, don’t strain yourself or actively try to expand.
2010 will be a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It’s generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice – take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.
