Your Birthday Year Forecast:
With the Sun and Moon in harmony in your Solar Return chart, the year ahead should be satisfying and balanced overall. You are in comfortable demand and personally popular, and you are able to achieve a decent balance between work and play; personal and professional life. For the most part, you are on top of your game this year, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. 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!
You feel energized and inspired creatively this year, ready to fight for something you believe in. You find it easier to assert yourself and your desires. The year is infused with enterprising spirit. Your faith in your ability to produce and to win takes you places you perhaps never imagined. You can see the “big picture”, which helps you to plan effectively. Negotiations, deals, legal matters, reasonable speculation, travel, and competitive activities, including sports and business, are favored.
Helping you with the practical side of life is a Mercury-Saturn connection. Your thinking is often pragmatic 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.
This is an excellent year in which to advance projects revolving around communications – writing, speaking, selling, and so forth. Your reputation may be enhanced through word of mouth. Making new contacts through learning and mental pursuits figures strongly as well.
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.
Your love nature is strong although given to extremes at times. Over-inflated expectations is something to watch out for. You may overvalue something (or someone), perhaps in an attempt to dramatize your life. While at times you may feel insecure on a social level, other times this year you feel quite the opposite: sociable, in the mood to party, dramatic, extravagant, and inclined to overindulge as a result of a feeling of inner discontent and a desire for more from life than daily routines.
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.
This could also be a year in which you are considerably more creative. Although you may enjoy an increase in your intuitive capabilities this year, you could also be too open to influence so that fears or delusions impact your ability to see your life clearly. Your energy can vary greatly from one period to the next, so take advantage of the “high” periods in order to offset the possible loss in productivity during the low-energy stages.
The year ahead is one of both practical application and a resourceful, confident approach. It can be a time of career advances and is a strong period for focusing on new ventures. You can make serious progress on work that’s important to you. Connections made this year tend to motivate you to learn more and gain more confidence in your ideas. Moderation in your social life is recommended.
