The Year Ahead
Forecast for October 2011 to October 2012
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:
With Saturn transiting conjunct your Sun until August 2012, new responsibilities are likely to present themselves this year, or you are required to take your current responsibilities more seriously. Although Saturn’s influence is traditionally considered restrictive, it does not have to be a depressing influence by all means. Some people react in such a way, but others benefit greatly from the realism that now enters their lives. The kind of progress you make now may not seem significant for the time being, but you will look back on this period of your life as one in which you truly made REAL progress towards your goals. 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 tend to be more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work. Practical matters come into strong focus and demand attention. You are likely to cut out some of the frivolous things in your life this year.
Watch for too much involvement with others’ problems and too little attention to your own in the process this year.
Work is solid 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. Traditional methods work, and thoroughness brings rewards. Practice or refining a technique is favored this year. The approach that seems to work best with this aspect is a step-by-step one, with modest ambitions and the appreciation of slow but steady progress.
You may be actively involved with teamwork and collaboration with others this year. Your passions are stirred, and you generally find it straightforward to form positive connections with others.
You may gain some perhaps profound new insights into your life this year. You can be especially persuasive and convincing in your communications, whether written or oral, and your perceptions are especially acute. You are inclined to do a lot of “digging”, researching, analyzing, investigating, and getting to the bottom of things. Increased psychological awareness of yourself and others can benefit you greatly, and employing strategy in your decision making is easier than usual this year. Relationships with younger people may be especially rewarding and meaningful. There may be a project, idea, or person that demands much of your attention or occupies much of your thoughts. It’s a strong year for any project or studies that require concentrated effort. You are especially resourceful this year.
A tendency to overstate, and to neglect important details when making plans, is strong, however. You may have so very many ideas that you end up implementing none if you’re not careful! You are likely to have increased opportunities for travel and/or new learning experiences.
This can be a “nose to the grindstone” year – you are likely to work hard and get yourself organized. You are certainly maturing in the period ahead, no matter your age, as you learn to accept your responsibilities and draw upon your own resources. It’s a strong period for analysis and research.
2011 is a Number Five year for you. Ruled by Mercury. This is a year of exploration and freedom. It’s a time when exploration and reaching out to others brings opportunities. It’s a good time to advertise and sell. Surprises are in store, and the routine is broken. This is a year when exciting relationships can be formed, or, if you are already in a partnership, new life is breathed into the relationship. Advice – explore, look for adventure, keep your eyes open for opportunities, mingle.
2012 will be a Number Six year for you. Ruled by Venus. This is a year of relative contentment. It is a time when love is the easiest to attract, and partnerships formed under this vibration have a better chance for longevity. You are able to attract others, and material things as well, this year. This is a good year for establishing harmony in the family and in the home. Advice – develop existing relationships, be positive and receptive because these kinds of energies help you to attract what you desire.
