The Sun conjunct Saturn and trine Jupiter in your Return chart indicates a stronger than usual desire for practical accomplishment this year. Your desire to learn and improve your practical skills is especially strong. Realistic levels of 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 these influences. 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.
New responsibilities are likely to present themselves this year, or you are likely to take them more seriously. This year is a good period to get your life organized. Although life may seem slowed down at times, you are more able to structure your life and your ambitions this year. Although Saturn’s influence is traditionally considered restrictive, it does not have to be a depressing influence by all means. Some people react in such a way, but others benefit greatly from the stark realism that now enters their lives. You are able to see the world around you in solid, real terms. Gone are the “rose-colored glasses”. With your ability to accurately assess your life, you can make real headway. The kind of progress you make now may not seem significant for the time being, but you will look back on this period of your life as one in which you truly made REAL progress towards your goals. You are now able to discipline yourself. Take this opportunity to structure your life and your goals, and work diligently towards them. You may be recognized or rewarded in some way for the efforts you put forth. Because you project a more responsible and credible you, people in authority tend to be more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work. Practical matters come into strong focus and demand attention. You are likely to cut out some of the frivolous things in your life 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 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.
Although you are bound to show great enthusiasm for your endeavors this year, over-estimating what you are capable of doing is a potential problem from time to time with Mercury, Venus, and Mars in hard aspect to Jupiter. You may get fired up over opposing viewpoints, and you may need to adjust your plan of action. Errors in judgment made now are likely due to impulsiveness and the overlooking of crucial details. You may take on so much that you end up spreading yourself too thin, for example; or you could have so many new ideas that you don’t have time to implement.
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. A year of hard work and effort is also in your forecast. You are taking on new responsibilities, but generally enjoy the challenges.
2008 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.
2009 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.
