The Year Ahead
Forecast for September 2006-September 2007
The year ahead is one of changes and adjustments as you rearrange your overall focus and your social life. The Sun squares Pluto around the time of your birthday, as it did last year. You are experiencing a long-term trend in which your life path is undergoing changes. You are likely to experience events that highlight the necessity to share and trust. This year, events and circumstances are such that you learn about your own personal strength. You may have to deal with willfulness and issues of power and competition this year–in others and in yourself.
There are likely to be times when you feel on edge, volatile, or even threatened. There is an inner drama taking place this year, and a feeling that external circumstances are undermining your own feeling of powerfulness. In the process, you may be able to get in touch with your internal motivations. A tendency to want to control your life through some form of manipulation is strong during this influence. Meeting with obstacles in your path, however, can force you into the position of using all of your resources to fight back, and you can discover resources you never knew you had in the process. You may slowly uncover a new direction in your career–one that reflects more of the true you. You may also experience tangles in your close personal relationships, perhaps more so with males. Watch for jealousies and manipulative behavior. Things will not go in your favor if you resort to tactics to get what you want. If you have been feeling somewhat of a victim in your relationships or job position, for example, then this will be a year when you feel it more acutely and feel the need to do something about it. You may slowly uncover a new direction in your career–one that reflects more of the true you. You could have problems staying calm, cool, and collected this year because your feelings are more intense and complex. Your best bet is to avoid resisting change, simply because resistance tends to attract chaos. The result will be a re-worked and re-defined “you”–more powerful, confident, and purposeful.
A sextile between Venus and Jupiter will help you to make positive choices in your social life and with your personal finances, even though Venus also opposes Uranus (see below). This year, youre bound to enjoy increased social opportunities as well as a boost in your personal popularity and magnetism. Others are looking on you favorably, particularly friends and lovers (or potential lovers). You are more friendly, optimistic, and big-hearted than usual. A cheerful and hopeful outlook increases your chances of gaining cooperation from others. This is a sociable, and perhaps self-indulgent, time when the pursuit of pleasure is one of your high priorities! You could find that you are more open and trusting of lovers, and that you easily win others trust. Healthy speculation is favored. Financial benefits may come your way. Some people fall in love under this influence.
Venus opposes Uranus around the time of your birthday. Some disruptions in your friendships and attachments are possible this year. Unusual attractions (to people and things) can have you acting on a whim. You may deal with freedom versus closeness issues in your relationships. It may be that you experience sudden changes or breakups with a friend or lover. However, the chance of a sudden new friendship is just as likely. At the root of this is a stronger “taste” for the unusual. What is familiar is less exciting to you than what is new and different. If a relationship seems to threaten your sense of freedom, you may have an easy time separating from it. Some fireworks in both your social and financial lives are to be expected, keeping things fresh and exciting. The best way to handle this energy is to open yourself up to the need for change in your love life or with regards to how you spend and make money–or both. Get in touch with this need for new experiences and/or attitudes and make some changes so that changes are not forced upon you.
With the Sun in positive minor aspect to Neptune and Jupiter, you could find that your intuition is subtly enhanced this year. Youre often in the right place at the right time, probably because your hunches are more often correct. This aspect 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. This is a good year to seek advanced training or to further your education. Sun/Jupiter aspects often correlate with ceremonies that formally acknowledge past achievements.
The Sun conjuncts the South Node in your Solar Return chart, indicating that you are likely to be dealing with karma in your personal relationships, especially those with men. You may be feeling hesitant about pursuing your goals or “taking” what you want from life. Relationships always mirror our own inner conflicts, but this year, you are bound to find particular meaning in your relationship dynamics in terms of your own life path.
Mercury conjuncts Mars around the time of your birthday this year, which is a good energy for debate or energetic mental work. It’s possible that you may be argumentative and irritable under this influence, and particularly impatient with vagueness. However, if this energy is applied well, you may simply enjoy a more active and clear mind. This can be a good year to eliminate wasteful activities. This influence excites and over-stimulates the whole nervous system. Be careful to avoid cutting words and aggressive driving. You may be involved in frequent lectures, debates, and discussions during the year. You can convey your ideas more powerfully. 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.
A trine between Mercury-Mars and Chiron in your Solar Return suggests that 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 are also more open to new ways of looking at problems, thus it’s considerably easier to find solutions and to creatively use your energy. This is a year when you can effectively free yourself from inhibitions and fears that have been holding you back from expressing your sexuality, anger, and self-assertiveness in positive ways.
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.
