Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The New Moon in your Solar Return chart suggests that you will instinctively begin a new phase of your life this year. A decisively new direction has come about in your life. This can be an emotionally stimulating time in which you feel the urge to initiate and project, even if you are not quite clear about what you are projecting. Much of the energy in your life can have a magical quality to it as things are just automatically going in a certain direction. It is important to be intuitive at this time and allow the natural course to show you the way to the next step. Surprises (mostly very pleasant) pepper your year. New beginnings are in order, and you are bound to feel some level of excitement as the year unfolds.
This can be a year in which you experience important turning points, or you could begin new projects or goals that have a long-term impact on your life.
Pluto continues to transit square your Sun this year and redefines your value system and life attitudes as well as generates intense energy in your life. You are likely to experience events that highlight the need to trust. Events and circumstances are such that you learn about your own personal strength. You may have to deal with willfulness and issues of power and competition this year–in others and yourself.
There is an inner drama taking place this year, and a feeling that external circumstances are undermining your feeling of powerfulness. In the process, you may be able to get in touch with your internal motivations. A tendency to want to control your life through some form of manipulation is strong during this influence. Meeting with obstacles in your paths, however, can force you into the position of using all of your resources to fight back, and you can discover resources you never knew you had in the process.
You have a stronger than usual desire to improve and learn this year, with opportunities emerging to match. Optimism and confidence are with you, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Pinnacle successes can occur during this period – for example, publishing an important project, graduating, marrying, having a child, getting a promotion, and so forth. It’s a good time to seek out 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.
Personal magnetism is strong. This is a good period for creative projects and joining with others in pursuing a common goal.
Pleasing circumstances surrounding your love life, finances, and creative pursuits are in store. You are especially generous, and others often return the favor. You might receive financial backing or special gifts in the period ahead. You seek a little more from your love life and you are likely to receive it. You might fall in love or enhance an existing relationship. You’re a little more open with your heart and ready to share your creativity.
Even so, some caution with your personal finances and your social relationships is in order. Most importantly, you should do your best to watch out for tendencies toward self-deception. Things might look too good to be true, simply because you want to see the best.
Independent work is favored this year, and you’re very often inclined to challenge yourself, which you might sometimes take too far. At times, you could feel quite restless or irritable if you don’t have something adventurous, challenging, or physical to do. You may need to tone things down at times and exercise more patience. Your passions and enthusiasm run high, and the trick is to channel this extra energy constructively rather than engage in unhelpful conflicts. Remember that haste makes waste. This year is likely to be especially busy.
Certain relationships or connections in your life further your growth, or events take place in which you feel like you are moving forward and growing into a new phase of your life. People in authority regard you more favorably at this time.
You have special charm when you’re presenting your ideas this year, certainly helping to smooth over differences in your personal relationships. As well, it’s easier than usual for you to turn difficult situations into winning ones. Expressing yourself more creatively can figure strongly, and you can find that you’re more popular than usual during this period of your life. Loving or pleasing communications and channels for self-expression are in focus. It’s a good time for cultural events or satisfying personal interests, and excellent for studies and learning.
You have a stronger ability to direct your energies into meaningful activities at this time in your life. You are self-directed much of the time, and you do particularly well for yourself if you have absorbing projects and a sense of purpose.
However, there can be times when your mind is working at top speed. While you can get a whole lot done, you may not always pay attention to important details. Others may not always catch onto your ideas or opinions. Your senses are stimulated, and you could have sudden flashes of insight or fresh new ideas. You may be a little scatter-brained, and you could find it challenging to deal with routine matters or monotonous tasks. Learning new things is your passion this year–not recycling old ideas or performing repetitive processes.
Influences in your solar return chart stir passions and could indicate a union, the beginning of a significant new relationship, the intensification of an existing romance, or particularly intense and satisfying projects.
Even so, Mars-Pluto energy with you this year is a little more complicated. If channeled positively, you could move mountains when it comes to pushing your projects ahead. If mishandled, however, you could be argumentative, stressed, and hell-bent on having your way! The bottom line is a tendency towards obsessive or compulsive behavior. Avoid taking extreme measures to make things happen your way, and avoid people who might be doing the same. Deliberately trying to maneuver things in order to get the upper hand will be a lesson in frustration this year.
Widening your mind through unusual or different experiences can be rewarding this year, and it can increase your compassion and generosity.
New beginnings and a fresh start can be in store. The year is strong for friendship, love, and learning. You can experience stop-and-go energy, and it’s best to take advantage of the periods when you’re feeling especially enterprising and confident. Some starts and stops are possible, as you face and then overcome obstacles. You’re growing through your connections, and you’re finding ways to improve and advance.
