The Year Ahead
Forecast for October 2009 to October 2010
If You Were Born Today, October 18: You are a very fair person who is also determined and hard-working. Success usually doesn’t come at a young age, but it does after some early setbacks–and from your own doing. You are a leader and a visionary. You have your feet on the ground, but you are willing to look beyond what is right in front of you. You may have some troubles with people who deceive you. Although you possess an unusually strong ability to understand human nature, when you are personally involved, you tend to believe what you want to believe. Your intellect is sharp. When an important decision has to be made, you listen to others, process the information, and then follow your intuition. Famous people born today: Pierre Trudeau, Martina Navratilova, Zac Efron, Lee Harvey Oswald, Chuck Berry, Jean-Claude Van Damme.
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.

You are especially appealing and charming just by being yourself. Opportunitiesboth personal and professionalare likely to present themselves as a result. You are not looking for credit for what you do, which frees you up to get it anyhow! Teaching others may be part of the picture, informally or formally.

A square to Pluto suggests intensity of feelings, perhaps a sense that something needs to be left behind in order to begin anew, and some level of inner drama. There may also be a need to buckle down with finances, perhaps a large purchase or financial obligation that requires changes in your spending habits (towards the conservative!).
Mars sextiles Saturn in your Solar Return chart, and work takes on definite shape this year, and you can see results from your efforts, or at least foresee success down the road.
