The Year Ahead
Forecast for September 2008 to September 2009
In your Solar Return chart this year, Mercury, Venus, and Mars align in the relationship-oriented sign of Libra. You have excellent aptitude for understanding the arts, and you are talented in artistic areas as well. This year, you could enjoy making things that are beautiful, and you succeed in areas that require an aesthetic sense as well as technical ability. The need or desire to talk about relationship dynamics is powerful this year. Acquaintances may become intimate. You may be involved in frequent lectures, debates, and discussions during the year. You can convey your ideas more powerfully during this period of your life. You are quick to take the initiative and to put your thoughts into action. Adventuresome travel may be part of the picture. You may be more actively involved with young people. Strong sexual feelings and romantic passions are stimulated, and the urge to be in love is compelling. If you are not currently in a relationship, you are likely to be bold and to make the first move toward someone you are attracted to.
Mercury, Venus, and Mars also form harmonious aspects to Chiron, Neptune, and the Moon’s Nodes, indicating the forming of new connections and relationships that enhance your spiritual growth. Your popularity increases and efforts to smooth over challenges in partnerships are more likely to succeed. This is an excellent influence for negotiations, marriage, and business partnerships. You are likely to be actively involved with teamwork and collaboration with others this year. This influence also indicates general ease in satisfying one’s desires through positive connections with others.
This is an excellent period in your life for opening up communications with others, as you are more sensitive than usual and more willing to listen. Getting your point across is easier, as it’s not only about what specific words you choose to communicate, you intuitively express the meaning and intention behind the words. You can effectively use words to soothe, heal, and teach this year. You are also more open to new ways of looking at problems, thus it’s considerably easier to find solutions. You’ll also have the chance to heal old wounds with regards to love this year, and you’re bound to find new ways of making money.
Your birthday falls just after a Full Moon this year, suggesting a period of communication and teaching. You may be turned to for advice more frequently, and you are very willing to offer your help. This is a strong year for publicity and any other endeavors that involve spreading the word. As well, your ability to be objective–or to see the “big picture”–can be especially rewarding this year.
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 terms of major outer transits, you’re finished with a Pluto transit square to your Sun, which produced intense energy for the past few years. Ahead is another major transit, Uranus opposing your Sun. A feeling of liberation and freedom is what you seek now. What you need to do is avoid “throwing the baby out with the bath water” as you forge ahead and rid yourself of things that make you feel restricted or tied down. Unexpected changes are likely. They could stimulate you to try new approaches and they certainly act to cut boredom! This influence could offer you the drive to do something new, but avoid making hasty major decisions for the time being. 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.
The year ahead is bound to be productive and busy. Figuring strongly this year are new developments in–and new attitudes towards–love matters, finances, and social relationships. Your creative and love urges are powerful indeed. New friendships, or new spins on established connections, are in your forecast. New ideas and projects abound! Focusing will be the key to success. You are taking on new responsibilities, but generally enjoying the challenges. Your weakness this year is likely to be rebelliousness. You are trying to break free from old habits, but should avoid making changes just for the sake of change.
2008 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.
2009 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.
