The Year Ahead
Forecast for October 2006-October 2007
The Sun conjuncts Venus and Mars and sits at the midpoint between these two planets in your Solar Return, suggesting that personal magnetism runs very high this year. This has the potential for being an especially creative year. For some, it can be procreative! Your love life will figure prominently. You have more initiative for getting things done independently this year. The desire nature is also strong, and you may enjoy increased sexual activity and physical activity in general. Playful competitiveness is likely to figure in relationships. This combination increases your sensuality, sex appeal, and animal magnetism. Marriage could occur in such a year. The urge to be with a love partner is especially compelling. If you are not currently in a relationship, you are likely to be bold and to make the first move toward someone you are attracted to. Now is also a good time to engage in creative projects and to join with others in pursuing a common goal. Any artistic or musical talent you have can make you shine brightly in the year ahead. If you are involved in competition, you could come out a winner.
The Sun forms pleasing aspects to both realistic Saturn and intense Pluto. Work you have done begins to pay off this year. You may be recognized or rewarded in some way for the efforts you put forth. Because you project a more responsible and credible you, people in authority are more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work. This is a year when you put your life in order in some significant manner. A more realistic outlook and a practical awareness of the limits of time help you to make steady progress, particularly in your career. Your concern for your future this year is stronger than usual, and you may find that projects you start, or investments you make, this year will benefit you for years to come. The key to success is adopting a realistic, practical, disciplined, and orderly approach to your life. You display more self-confidence when it comes to achieving your goals and going after what you want. Others are bound to recognize your leadership skills and talents, or, at the very least, your potential. You are motivated to get to the bottom of matters. You might find that you become more goal-oriented, as superficial goals no longer satisfy you. You want your life path and your objectives to reflect what youre really about, and you are likely to rid yourself of unsatisfying goals or paths this year. A new project or goal begun this year has a good chance of being successful and long-lasting.
Both Venus and Mars form soft aspects to Saturn and Pluto around the time of your birthday this year. Certain elements of your social and financial lives are stabilized, secured, and more reliable this year. You may solidify a romantic relationship under this influence, or become involved with a mature partner. Circumstances may be such that you need to handle money more carefully this year, or this may simply come naturally to you now. Romantic relationships and attractions have a fated quality to them this year. This could be a year when you fall in love, and this could be with a person, an activity, or a cause! Meeting someone who transforms your life, and more specifically your values and attitude towards love, is very possible. Strong existing relationships are likely to grow and transform in rewarding ways, as you are more open than usual to intensity and passion. With Mars involved, your ambition is stimulated–you are determined to meet or exceed your goals. As well, you take much pride in accomplishing tangible things. 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. This is a year when employing time-honored strategies works best for you. It may not be a year in which to push forward aggressively or to break new ground. In fact, you may tend to enjoy sticking to mundane tasks because it makes you feel good 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.
Mercury conjuncts Jupiter and squares both Saturn and Neptune, which can confuse things a little. There may be more misunderstandings through misinformation or wishful thinking than usual. Some unfocused, or even self-defeating, thinking could get you into sticky situations, such as signing contracts without knowing everything you need to know about an endeavor, trusting people who later misuse that trust, or problems on these lines. Try to keep yourself grounded in reality as much as possible. You can be successful in the entertainment industry or in any field that requires a lot of imagination and vision. You take on a dreamy and philosophical outlook, which opens up your heart to new experiences. Of course, there is a down side to every positive. Temper your enthusiasm with realism. Enthusiasm running high is a good thing, but if it’s over-inflated or impractical, you might set yourself up for some lows that are just as inflated as the highs! Do your best to avoid “get rich quick” schemes or anything along those lines. Things might look better than they are, especially this year. In terms of mental pursuits, you may often find that you have to make a choice in which both alternatives are desirable, but you must choose one at the expense of the other. However, it’s a year in which learning new things figures prominently and is favored.
2006 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.
2007 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.
