The Year Ahead
Forecast for October 2008 to October 2009
Pluto is transiting sextile your Sun this year, and your attitude towards life is changing. What used to satisfy you may not continue to do so, particularly if your goals have been superficial or a poor reflection of your inner desires. You are no longer willing to make compromises in the important areas of your life, particularly with regards to career and your life path. You are more determined this year, and it’s an excellent time for getting rid of bad habits. This is a year in which to get your life back on track, as you have the willpower to do so. Others are bound to recognize your leadership skills and talents, or, at the very least, your potential. You want your life path and your objectives to reflect what youre really about. 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.
The Sun in hard aspect to both Saturn and Uranus might provide just the right impetus to accomplish a whole lot this year. If you find yourself spinning your wheels, however, it’s likely due to an internal struggle between holding onto traditional values and moving forward into untried areas.
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. Mercury in challenging aspect to Jupiter suggests an inclination to attach greater meaning to your experiences. A tendency to overstate, and to neglect important details when making plans, is strong. 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.
Mars in pleasing aspect to Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus infuses the year with enterprising yet practical spirit. This is a strong influence for professional as well as personal opportunities. Your faith in your ability to produce and to win takes you places you perhaps never imagined. You are able to see the “big picture”, which helps you to plan effectively. The energies of these influences favor negotiations, deals, legal matters, reasonable speculation, and travel. They’re also strong for positive outcomes in competitive activities, including sports and business, for example. Healthy risk-taking is likely this year, as you are more able to spot an opportunity when you see one. It is easier than usual to break free from habits that have previously held you back from going after what you want in life. 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.
With Jupiter in harmony to Saturn at the time of your birthday this year, a period of constructive accomplishment is ahead. In general, you are practical, realistic, and your judgment is especially sound–and you derive much satisfaction from your work. The key to harnessing this wonderful energy is to identify and find pleasure in the simple things that make you happy. A nice balance between optimism and practicality is with you this year.
This year, your determination to honor your deepest desires and goals leads you towards increased success. You are bound to form stimulating intellectual contacts and connections this year. The ability to see the “big picture” and to plan ahead will reward you. You’re finding it especially easy to go after what you want in a logical, faithful, and enterprising manner. A balanced approach to life, in terms of realistic expectations, is the best approach for maximizing success.
2008 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.

Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.
2009 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.
