If Today is Your Birthday: October 2
The Year Ahead
Forecast for October 2012 to October 2013
If You Were Born Today, October 2:
You thrive on companionship, especially the one-on-one kind. For the most part, you are quite comfortable in a supporting role, and possess an understated charm. Although tactful and caring, you also enjoy displaying your intellect, and there are times when you might try to score intellectual points, and regret it if you’ve hurt someone else’s feelings in the process! The thing is, you accept nothing at face value, and that combined with your perceptiveness endows you with a very interesting and intelligent perspective that others respect. You are spiritually inclined, well-respected, and popular. Famous people born today: Mahatma Gandhi, Groucho Marx, Graham Greene, Johnny Cochrane, Kelly Ripa, Sting, Tiffany.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
Your birthday falls just after a Full Moon this year, suggesting a period of communication and teaching. You may be turned to for advice more frequently, and you are very willing to offer your help. This is a strong year for publicity and any other endeavors that involve spreading the word. As well, your ability to be objective–or to see the “big picture”–can be especially rewarding this year.
Personal freedom issues are especially important to you this year. Others may seem to be introducing changes into your life, whether you feel ready for them or not. In truth, you are readier than you think. Changes in how you relate to others on a one-to-one level are essential to your personal growth, even if it feels a bit unstable for the time being. Something you have had to give up might now be available to you again, and you need to decide whether you still want it.
Any situations that you have felt to be limiting of your freedom will be hard to accept any longer. You might experiment with a new look or manner, or simply come off in an entirely new way as you feel your life speeding up. There may be some confrontation with friends, a boss, or a partner that prompts a breaking of ties. Remember that you may be reacting to a bruised ego and you may not be in touch with your deeper feelings before making permanent decisions. It’s possible that you need to move on, but do take time to make decisions wisely. Your creativity is stimulated this year, but so is your excitability and your need for freedom. You are likely to be more outspoken than usual, perhaps even rebellious.
A major outer planet transit continues this year that acts to redefine your value system and life attitudes, and generates intense energy in your life. You are likely to experience events that highlight the need to trust. This year, events and circumstances are such that you learn about your own personal strength. You may have to deal with wilfulness and issues of power and competition this year–in others and in yourself. There is an inner drama taking place this year, and a feeling that external circumstances are undermining your own feeling of powerfulness. In the process, you may be able to get in touch with your internal motivations. A tendency to want to control your life through some form of manipulation is strong during this influence. Meeting with obstacles in your paths, however, can force you into the position of using all of your resources to fight back, and you can discover resources you never knew you had in the process.
You may slowly uncover a new direction in your career–one that reflects more of the “true you”. You may also experience tangles in your close personal relationships, perhaps more so with males. Watch for jealousies and manipulative behavior. Things will not go in your favor if you resort to tactics to get what you want. If you have been feeling somewhat of a victim in your relationships or job position, for example, then this will be a year when you feel it more acutely and feel the need to do something about it.
Your ability to concentrate and focus is enhanced this year with Mercury conjunct Saturn in the Solar Return chart. This sometimes suggests a need for solitude when you work, or a year in which you often retreat to work on specific tasks on your own. You might be required to travel for business purposes. It can also indicate that young people in your life are more mature or serious in their approach to life. Thinking in realistic and practical terms is your best bet, and the need for tangible results for your efforts is strong.
You can be quite active this year on a romantic level, experiencing ups and downs and advances as well. With Venus and Mars in a square aspect to each other, your affections are strongly stimulated, and you are more acutely aware of your powers of attraction. Romance, love, and sexuality occupy your mind more than usual. You can enjoy an increase in personal magnetism (as well as libido!), but be wary of competitiveness or tension in existing love relationships, as this aspect ignites your passions in general, whether they’re feelings of love or anger! Watch for impulsive spending.
Nevertheless, there will be opportunities to strengthen a relationship this year. While emotions can be tumultuous in general, you might meet someone who helps to ground you, you may strengthen a relationship and enjoy experimentation and excitement on a romantic level, or you might end a relationship and begin another, one of them more mature than the other.
There can be some dissatisfaction with the way you’ve been living your life, and with what you consider to be restrictions. whether these are internal or external ones. You may no longer be satisfied with superficial elements of your life, humdrum routines, or situations that keep you feeling tied down or locked in. Buried feelings and motives can surface, possibly erratically. Major changes can occur, and these help you to break out of monotony and to break bad habits.
Changes are in order this year, and it’s best not to resist them. You are learning how to claim your inner power, and there can be some struggles during this process. Your love life may be a bit of a rollercoaster ride this year. Watch for impulsiveness in love and with money. Nevertheless, you have opportunities to improve these areas of life.
2012 is a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It’s generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice – take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.
2013 will be a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice – let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.
