Your Birthday Year Forecast:
Your birthday occurs around a First Quarter Moon this year, and you are reaching an important turning point in terms of personal growth. You may be more emotional this year, and you should watch for unnecessary conflicts and making hasty decisions as a result. Otherwise, this is a year of great energy, motivation, and growth. You are more ambitious and desirous of action in the year ahead.
Neptune continues to transit sextile to your Sun this year, however, softening and smoothing many of the rough edges. You are gentler, more intuitive, spiritual, and creative with this influence, and others are drawn to these qualities. Your natural ability to help others heal and calm down is enhanced. A higher purpose to your life is what you seek, and you rely more heavily upon your intuition in order to achieve it. You could find that your intuition is subtly enhanced and that you’re often in the right place at the right time, probably because your hunches are more likely to be correct. This aspect softens your disposition somewhat, as you tune into your imaginative and artistic side. This is a good year for self-improvement programs or efforts. The need to “get away from it all” — for some peace and quiet now and again — will be strong. A more sensitive, even mysterious, persona is projected this year, and this can attract pleasantly unusual circumstances (and people) into your life. You will want to spend more time away from chaotic situations.
Helping you with the practical side of life is a Mercury-Saturn connection. Your thinking is often practical and realistic, and your judgment is especially sound. You also derive much satisfaction from practical achievement. It would behoove you to identify and focus on finding pleasure in the simple things that make you happy.
Advances in intellectual and mental pursuits are likely, as you make steady progress that has long-lasting results. It’s a good year in which to get organized, to do detail work, and to prepare for the future. Work done during this period in your life will have tangible results in the future. Relationships with younger people in your life are solidified.
This can be a good time for updating your electronics and technology in ways that open up new avenues for communication or ease. Wonderfully creative ideas can fill your head this year.
There can be a stronger focus on loyalty in your relationships, and working relationships can improve or work with a partner can be in focus.
This is a year of both practical application and an imaginative approach. This can be a time of career advances and is a strong period for focusing on priorities. However, it’s also a period for projecting a warmer, softer image and for building your creativity and imagination or discovering a spiritual side.

Advice – let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.

Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.
