You have strong opinions and possess much determination. Your insight into human nature makes up part of your appeal to others. Your tendency to bang your head against the wall and to become frustrated easily is something that you outgrow and/or temper over the years. Your strong ideals and emotions, if channeled constructively, can bring you much success in your chosen profession. Communication is important to you, although your own communication style is moody. You are highly intelligent and possess the ability to “hit the nail on the head”. Although you can be blunt at times, you generally come across well to others, simply because they can sense your good intentions.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The Sun in a waxing sextile to the Moon in your Solar Return chart has a fortunate influence on your year ahead. You can be especially productive this year, as in many ways you are starting fresh, but you have a rather clear vision of what you want to accomplish. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa, which helps to boost your confidence and happiness levels. You more readily accept that challenges are part of the natural cycle in life, which in turn helps you to meet them with confidence and to worry less. 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.
This can be a good year for gaining support and recognition from others, and you may be forming alliances that last a long time. Through your contacts with others, you are encouraged to grow, but also to pay more attention to rules and structure.
This is an important year for motivation and ambition, even if energy levels are sometimes up and down. You might enjoy increased influence, faith, and insight. The desire for more personal significance can be strong. The ability to sway or persuade can be enhanced this year. You might go to great lengths to better yourself, you could solve a long-standing problem, or capitalize upon a resource that was previously hidden.
You have great enterprising spirit this year, attracting strong opportunities on both professional and personal levels. You are able to see the “big picture”, which helps you to plan effectively. You have significantly more courage and gumption, making the year ahead a unique one in which you are ready to try new things.
Personal magnetism is tremendous this year. This is a good period for creative projects and joining with others in pursuing a common goal. However, some caution with your personal finances and regarding your social relationships is in order. Try not to turn a blind eye to problem areas, as these can accumulate. Most importantly, you should do your best to watch out for tendencies towards self-deception. Things might look too good to be true, simply because you want to see the best. Relationship ups and downs are possible. The “highs” of a relationship may be thrilling, but the accompanying “lows” can be draining. However, tuning into reality from time to time can in fact stabilize things and bring a better balance to your life.
Personal freedom issues become especially important to you from June 2016 forward, due to Uranus transiting in opposition to your Sun. Others may seem to be introducing changes into your life, whether you feel ready for them or not. In truth, you are readier than you think. Changes in how you relate to others on a one-to-one level are essential to your personal growth, even if it feels a bit unstable for the time being. Something you have had to give up might now be available to you again, and you need to decide whether you still want it.
This is a year for exploring possibilities, self-improvement efforts, and for strong personal and professional goals. You have an especially enterprising spirit and might initiate new endeavors. You’re ready to put the effort into pursuing your goals. Be vigilant with financial affairs – stay grounded. From June forward, flexibility is important, as is self-awareness.
2015 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.
2016 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.
