The Year Ahead
Forecast for October 2007 to October 2008
The Sun is sextile Jupiter near the time of your birthday, suggesting that you are more aware of moral issues, and have a stronger than usual desire to improve and learn this year. This is a fortunate aspect that implies optimism and confidence are with you, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve this year. Your social life will likely increase and bring you in contact with more influential, powerful, or simply happy and helpful people. Travel opportunities are likely. It is not uncommon to marry, have children, graduate college, increase income, do freelance work, get a promotion, publish a book, or receive public recognition under this influence. Matters related to universities, higher education, organized religion, publishing, legal affairs, and foreign interests proceed smoothly. This is an excellent year in which to seek advanced training or to further your education. Some form of recognition for your work or for past good deeds may be forthcoming this year. Fortunate circumstances arise from a positive attitude as well as sincere self-expression. You are likely to enjoy good humor, optimism, and a larger perspective on matters that keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses and strains.
The Sun is also in creative aspect with Pluto, and you are likely to display more self-confidence when it comes to achieving your goals and going after what you want. Others are bound to recognize your leadership skills and talents, or, at the very least, your potential. You are motivated to get to the bottom of matters. You might find that you become more goal-oriented, as superficial goals no longer satisfy you. You want your life path and your objectives to reflect what youre really about, and you are likely to rid yourself of unsatisfying goals this year. 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.
Venus conjuncts Saturn, suggesting that problems in personal relationships that have been swept under the carpet may surface this year, and you are ready to face them. Dissatisfaction with loved ones becomes more glaring. Support from older people or authority figures may come by way of solid advice or tangible help. Renewed ties to old friends are possible, or a new sense of responsibility in existing friendships. A pleasing trine between Venus and Pluto suggests that romantic relationships and attractions have a fated quality to them this year. This could be a year in which you fall in love, and this could be with a person, an activity, or a cause! Meeting someone who transforms your life, and more specifically your values and attitude towards love, is possible under this influence. Strong existing relationships are likely to grow and transform in rewarding ways, as you are more open than usual to intensity and passion. Your finances could also improve dramatically this year. You are likely to weed out the unnecessary in these departments of your life this year, and to end up with a strong sense of meaning and purposefulness. For singles, this could be a year in which they find true love; and for those already in a relationship, a more meaningful and strengthened bond is likely.
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. Traditional methods work, and thoroughness brings rewards. This is a year when employing time-honored strategies works best for you. It may not be a period in which to push forward aggressively or to break new ground. In fact, you may tend to enjoy sticking to mundane tasks because it satisfies you 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.
With Mercury in harmonious aspect to Mars in your Solar Return chart, you are likely to be more actively involved in lectures, debates, and discussions during the year. You can convey your ideas well to others. Travel, particularly work-related, may be in the offing. Relationships with younger people may be especially rewarding. The ability to put your ideas into action is with you.
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. With Mars trine the Moon’s North Node, you may be actively involved with teamwork and collaboration with others this year. This can also indicate an increased need for sexual union, as it stirs the passions and generally indicates ease in satisfying one’s desires through positive connections with others. This aspect is one indication of getting engaged, married, the beginning of a significant new relationship, or the intensification of an existing romance.
You are more able to rise above petty problems and stresses this year, freeing yourself up to enjoy life from a broad, happy perspective. Getting organized and working steadily towards well-defined goals is also featured. Mental pursuits thrive, and an organized approach to life takes you places. Dramatic improvements to your romantic and social life, as well as finances, are likely this year. Your love life transforms in surprising and satisfying ways–there is nothing light or superficial about your relationships during this period of your life!
2007 is 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.
2008 will be 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. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.
