Your Birthday Year Forecast:
With the Sun and Moon in a waxing semi-square at the time of your birthday this year, the period ahead is one of new initiatives and action. You possess quite a bit of energy, but you must be aware that emotions color much of what you do this year. It can be hard to be objective as a result.
Personal freedom issues are especially important to you this year with Uranus’s opposition to your Sun beginning in May. 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.
There may be a project, idea, or person that demands much of your attention or occupies much of your thoughts. Its a strong year for any project or studies that require concentrated effort. You are especially resourceful.
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. Even so, intuition runs high in the period ahead. 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.
This is an excellent year in which to advance projects revolving around communications – writing, speaking, selling, and so forth. Your reputation may be enhanced through word of mouth. Making new contacts through learning and mental pursuits figures strongly as well.
This is a year for feeling competent, effective, and secure. You have a strong sense of both tradition and innovation. You are also more able to express your unique qualities or to go your own way, without stirring up controversy, as you act in a professional, respectful manner. You are humble, and with increased realism, we can pursue our goals with more chance of success.
With Venus square to Neptune, some caution with your personal finances and regarding your social relationships is in order. Most importantly, you should do your best to watch out for tendencies towards self-deception. Things might look too good to be true, simply because you want to see the best. This could be a year when romantic mirages are more likely. The “highs” of a relationship may be thrilling, but the accompanying “lows” can be draining. Uncertainty may characterize your love relationships this year. Be careful not to set yourself up for disappointment. The same goes for finances. Do try to take off the rose-colored glasses when it comes to new financial initiatives and romance. If you don’t, you could be in for some disappointment when things fail to measure up to your dreams and ideals.
This should be an intellectually stimulating year in which you express yourself with more authority, and make important contacts. You can feel as if you are beginning a whole new chapter in your life, and big life changes are quite possible. Some of you could be starting new businesses. When it comes to love, try to keep your expectations realistic. Be vigilant with money and in your social life.
2013 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.
2014 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.
