The Year Ahead
Forecast for October 2007 to October 2008
The Sun closely sextiles Pluto in your Solar Return chart. 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 solid 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 and opposes Uranus in your Solar Return chart, suggesting that problems in personal relationships that have been swept under the carpet may surface this year. Dissatisfaction with loved ones becomes more glaring, and some disruptions in your friendships and attachments are possible this year. Unusual attractions (to people and things) can have you acting on a whim. You may deal with freedom versus closeness issues in your relationships. It may be that you experience sudden changes or breakups with a friend or lover. However, the chance of a sudden new friendship is just as likely. At the root of this is a stronger taste for the unusual. What is familiar is less exciting to you than what is new and different. If a relationship seems to threaten your sense of freedom, you may have an easy time separating from it. Some fireworks in both your social and financial lives are to be expected, keeping things fresh and exciting. The best way to handle this energy is to open yourself up to the need for change in your love life or with regards to how you spend and make money–or both. Get in touch with this need for new experiences and/or attitudes so that changes are not forced upon you. 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.
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.
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. Your love life is bound to involve some fireworks as changes are required of existing relationships. Overall, your ability to strategize and plan ahead is a real asset this year.
2007 is a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time, when it is easy to enjoy life and other people. Focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure. It is likely to be a rather lighthearted year, when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a good year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out, but avoid scattering your energies.
2008 will be a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to deal with practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Positive new relationships are generally not formed in a Four personal year. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
