October 8 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: October 8
The Year Ahead
Forecast for October 2006-October 2007
The Sun sits at the midpoint between Venus and Mars in your Solar Return, suggesting that personal magnetism runs very high this year. This has the potential for being an especially creative year. For some, it can be procreative! Your love life will figure prominently. You have more initiative for getting things done independently this year. The desire nature is also strong, and you may enjoy increased sexual activity and physical activity in general.
The Sun trines Neptune, and you could find that your intuition is subtly enhanced this year as well. Youre often in the right place at the right time, probably because your hunches are more likely to be correct. This aspect also softens your disposition somewhat, as you tune into your imaginative and artistic side. You may often rely on your instinctual judgment. This is a good year for self-improvement programs or efforts. The need to get away from it all — for some peace and quiet now and again — will be strong. A more sensitive–even mysterious–persona is projected this year, and this can attract pleasantly unusual circumstances (and people) into your life. You will want to reserve time alone–away from the hectic pace of life–for reflection, prayer, or meditation.
Mars trines Neptune around the time of your birthday this year, energizing the year ahead with increased creativity. You are more inclined to act upon your intuition, your sexual fantasies may be especially strong, and your creative impulses are potent. This aspect, as with the Sun in trine to Neptune, helps to soften your disposition, smoothing out some of the tension in your life. At times, you will have a “what will be, will be” attitude. This influence favors dancing, swimming, photography, arts, and entertainment. If you are an artist, this could be an especially inspired, imaginative, and productive year. Pay attention to your gut feelings, which will, more often than not, give you valuable information. If you are involved in sales, you will be able to tune into your client’s inner desires and motivations.
Mars also sextiles Saturn, adding form and structure to your life. This helps you to focus. As well, you take much pride in accomplishing tangible things. 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. This is a year when employing time-honored strategies works best for you. It may not be a year in which to push forward aggressively or to break new ground. In fact, you may tend to enjoy sticking to mundane tasks because it makes you feel good 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.
Mercury trines Uranus, suggesting that there may be unexpected and pleasant news this year that enhances your life. You are able to find new insights into old problems, and your thinking processes during this period are likely to be especially original. This is a good year for projects involving technology or New Age topics. You may find more opportunities to attend meetings and other organized group activities, to communicate online, and to take part in activities involving computers, scientific projects, or metaphysics. Unexpected gains may be realized through such mediums. Your intuition is strong, and insights seem to come from “out of the blue”. Original, creative ideas are easy to come by this year. Mercury is also in hard aspect to Pluto, and a tendency to read between the lines with a negative slant can most certainly stir up trouble if not kept in check! You are hungry for deeper meaning, but a suspicious attitude, or making mountains out of molehills, wont serve you well. Some secretiveness is possible. At times, you may have a troubled mind and some mental anxiety. On the other hand, it can suggest the ability to engage in deep, penetrating communication this year. Mercury governs speech, and you will need to watch what and how you communicate. Something you write or say could lead to opposition from others. Your need to investigate and read between the lines is strong this year. Its best used for research and increased awareness of psychological motivations, both of others and yourself.
2006 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.
2007 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.
