The Year Ahead
Forecast for October 2008 to October 2009
A trine between the Sun and the Moon in your Solar Return chart this year is a fortunate aspect. It suggests that your domestic and career needs are not in competition with one another in the year ahead. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa. This aspect is very powerful and rewarding. It suggests that you will be on top of your game this year, for the most part, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. A comfortable level of personal popularity helps to keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there is less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!
In your Solar Return chart this year, Mercury and the Sun trine the North Node, indicating that you will make contact through learning, communicating, and mental pursuits. This indicates an intellectually stimulating year in which the exchange of ideas with others figures prominently. You are likely to form new relationships or connections that further your spiritual growth, or to enhance existing relationships with a spirit of camaraderie. People in authority regard you favorably. Events take place in which you feel you are moving forward and growing into a new phase of your life.
With the Sun and Mercury square Jupiter in your Solar Return chart, there will be times when you are inclined to overdo things or to promise more than you can deliver due to an optimistic, but not necessarily realistic, attitude. Your eyes may be bigger than your stomach. You may feel vague restlessness and discontent with life as it is, although you are generally in a happy mood. Elevated moods could also be rather unstable, as they may not be based on reality. Channeled well, this energy can represent creative power.
Venus in harmonious aspect to Saturn and Uranus suggests that you are able to bring a spirit of fun, independence and freedom to your relationships, while remaining responsible and devoted. Certain elements of your social and financial life are stabilized, secured, and more reliable this year. You may solidify a romantic relationship under these influences, or become involved with a mature partner. You have a taste for the offbeat this year, and this energy can bring sudden or unexpected romance into your life, perhaps a scenario that feels like love at first sight.
With Venus also square Neptune, however, err on the side of caution when it comes to matters that appear too good to be true. Also, watch for unrealistic expectations in your relationships. 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.
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.
In the year ahead, emotional stability and satisfaction are likely to increase your popularity and overall well-being. A tendency to take on more than you can realistically handle should be watched, however. Despite some minor disappointments due to overinflated expectations, your social life and finances stabilize and satisfy overall.
2008 is a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is less active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract both things and people. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice – be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect.
2009 will be a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time, when it is easy to enjoy life and other people. Focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure. It is likely to be a rather lighthearted year, when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a good year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out, but avoid scattering your energies.
