The Year Ahead
Forecast for October 2007 to October 2008
When a Quarter Moon occurs in your Return chart, as it does this year, you are at some sort of a turning point in your life, in terms of personal growth. Events that occur this year act as catalysts that get you in touch with some important issues in your emotional life. Your emotions run high, and mood swings or identity crises are possible.
There may be some kind of conflict in your life arising from a great urge to do something different. It promises to be a busy, dynamic, and significant period in your life.
The Sun forms creative aspects to both Neptune and Pluto 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. 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 this year. You benefit from being more decisive than usual, and your ability to concentrate and focus help you to achieve what you set out to do. A new project or goal begun this year has a good chance of being successful and long-lasting.
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. Changes are required, but with positive results. Your ability to strategize and plan ahead is a real asset this year. Making overly emotional decisions is something best avoided.
2007 is a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.
2008 will be a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is less active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract both things and people. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice – be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect.
