If Today is Your Birthday: October 31
The Year Ahead
Forecast for October 2008 to October 2009
Your birthday this year occurs shortly after a New Moon, suggesting a time of new beginnings and fresh energy. You are instinctively starting a new phase in your life. It’s time to give your life a makeover and to branch out into the untried!
Mercury trines Neptune in your Solar Return chart. 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.
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.
With Venus sextile the Moon’s North Node, you are very likely to attract loving relationships and/or new warm social contacts into your life. However, Venus is also square to both Saturn and Uranus, and some tensions in your love life, and/or regarding your personal finances, are quite possible. Conflicting feelings when it comes to your love relationships figure strongly, as you want to be devoted and responsible to the people you love, but you also want to feel uninhibited, unrestrained, and free. Without realizing it, you may make loved ones feel that they are annoying you or bothering you. Try to be patient and calm while trying to resolve any relationship problems that you encounter. The responsibilities of partnership are magnified this year. You are likely to be more earnest on a romantic level. An existing relationship may become more serious, or you may form a new partnership with a serious or older person. You are likely to work hard this year, and this could interfere with pleasure time. You may deal with freedom versus closeness issues in your relationships.
This year, you are instinctively beginning a new phase in your life. The ability to see the “big picture” and to plan ahead will reward you. Your mental output is more creative and imaginative. You’re finding it especially easy to go after what you want in a logical, faithful, and enterprising manner. Dealing with freedom versus responsibility in your relationships is likely to figure strongly. A balanced approach to life, in terms of realistic expectations, is the best approach for maximizing success.
2008 is 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.
2009 will be a Number Seven year for you. Ruled by Neptune. This is a year of preparation, chance, and refinement. It is not a time of dramatic changes. Instead, it’s a year when reflection on the past is helpful, and when refinements to your life path should be made. It’s a good year to study and analyze. Unexpected twists to your life story and “chance” meetings are probable. Advice – take stock of your life in order to prepare for more exciting years to come, examine the past and plan for the future, get in touch with your deepest needs and uncover your personal power, don’t strain yourself or actively try to expand.
