The Year Ahead
Forecast for October 2016 to October 2017
If You Were Born Today, October 29:
You are playful and spontaneous, and you are usually up for an adventure. Your attachment to your family and to your private life is very strong, and you will do pretty much anything to defend a loved one. You are a passionate person who enjoys debates and shaking things up once in a while. You can be hard to read, simply because there is a decidedly intense side to your nature, yet you can come across as quirky at times as well. Overall, you tend to be respected, and when people you don’t know well seem to be intimidated by you at first, it’s likely because they are in awe on one hand, and are unsure how to read you on the other. Famous people born today: Winona Ryder, Joely Fisher, Kate Jackson, Richard Dreyfuss, Ben Foster.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
You can be exceptionally busy this year! At times, you may feel like the pace of your life is running ahead of you. You can be especially productive, however, in all types of communications–writing, speaking, learning, teaching, and so forth.
Even so, intuition runs high this year. You are more sensitive artistically, your imagination is stirred, and you have an increased appreciation for subtleties. You are inspired and could even inspire others with your words. Some of your hunches could be prophetic. You are thinking more creatively, and express yourself with more sensitivity, compassion, and warmth.
The Moon is in its Balsamic phase in your Solar Return chart, marking this year the end of an important cycle, or stage of growth, in your life. You take more down time than usual, and this is natural, even good for you. This is a year when you are likely closing important projects or “chapters” in your life. This is an important year for reorienting yourself – discovering what you want, and identifying what you need to do in order to move forward more positively.
Your unique ways of expressing and asserting yourself are highlighted and appreciated in the year ahead. Suppressed anger is more effectively released this year in creative ways. It is easier than ever to express your individuality, as well as your sexuality, in a manner that is true to you.
There may be changes in work schedules, or life’s circumstances could challenge you in such a way that you need to change your goals or actions. This can also be a time when you tend to resist others and challenge them if they are trying to hold you back. If you aren’t too rash or impulsive, you might be able to free yourself from restrictive circumstances. You could also have more courage than usual to do things that break the routine, and confrontations engaged in this year could clear the air and help you to move forward.
There can be more dedication and an emphasis on loyalty in your relationships. Nevertheless, Venus in challenging angle to Neptune suggests some adjustments in your life are necessary due to overblown expectations. Do what you can to keep your feet on the ground and avoid expecting perfection from your relationships. Uncertainty in Venus-ruled areas of life (romance, social life, and finances) can be a theme at times this year, perhaps due to a variable income that goes with the territory of self-employment or a relationship that isn’t quite as settled as you’d like it to be yet as examples.
Venus with Saturn asks you to be responsible, hard working, dutiful, and serious when it comes to finances and/or close relationships. Neptune, on the other hand, places a veil over your eyes and seduces you into believing what you want to believe rather than what really is. You need to assess areas of your life that have become dysfunctional and, in the process, you may need to sacrifice a material benefit for a spiritual good (or vice versa). You are learning a valuable spiritual lesson that will help you to put your priorities in better perspective. Spiritual, artistic, or musical endeavors can be helpful, but you may need to find a better balance between responsibility and extracurricular activities. Aim to come to a stronger sense of reality and purpose, particularly with your finances, romantic, or social relationships. A romance may be solidified or an attachment to an older or more mature partner could be part of the picture.
You also have a lovely Venus-Jupiter aspect in your Solar Return chart this year, and you can experience more popularity or a stronger interest in others and making connections. This is a year of general fortune through your relationships and meetings, even if there are some ups and downs and lessons to be learned. You’re also very willing to make sacrifices for love and friendship, as well as in the interests of saving up for something special and business pursuits. Work is more satisfying than usual. Pleasing circumstances surrounding your love life, finances, and creative pursuits are also likely. You are more generous, and others return the favor. You might receive financial backing or special gifts in the period ahead. You seek a little more from your love life and you are likely to receive it. Some of you could fall in love this year, or existing relationships are enhanced. Adventure-seeking is a theme.
The year ahead is excellent for writing, speaking, and creating. There can be some important changes made this year – it’s unlikely to be status quo. Watch for stirring up unnecessary controversy and for impatience, which can trip you up. Tame the tendency to react too quickly to restrictive circumstances. Love and friendship bring joys and lessons. You’re likely to wrestle with some expectations but ultimately get to a better understanding of your relationships.
2016 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.
2017 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.
