The Year Ahead
Forecast for October 2007 to October 2008
The Sun in harmonious aspect to the Moon in your Solar Return chart is a pleasant aspect, occurring again this year as it did last year, 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 forms creative aspects to both Neptune and Uranus in your Solar Return chart. 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. Exciting (not jarring) changes and new interests characterize the period ahead. 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. Your personality is sparkling this year, which is sure to attract new circumstances and people into your 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. 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 and Saturn 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. Advances in intellectual and mental pursuits are likely, as you make steady progress that has long-lasting results. Mercury trine the Moon’s North Node suggests making contact through learning, communicating, and mental pursuits. It suggests an intellectually stimulating year in which the exchange of ideas with others figures prominently.
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.
Getting organized and working steadily towards well-defined goals is a theme this year. Mental pursuits thrive, you can turn your ideas into action quite readily, and an organized approach to life takes you places. 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 required, but with positive results. Your ability to maintain emotional equilibrium is a real asset.
2007 is 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.
2008 will be 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.
