You can be extremely persuasive and charming. However, although you do use your charm to your advantage, there is a point when your big heart and strong morals keep you from taking advantage of others. You have a strong presence and magnetism – qualities that help you immensely towards achievement and success. Security is important to you, and you will work hard to make sure your life is as stable as possible. While you can have a lot of things going on at once, you at your best when you stay organized and when you develop routines and schedules. While you are romantically inclined, you may have your fair share of challenges in love. Luckily, you grow and learn from early mistakes. You are intuitively drawn to loyal, stable partners because of a strong need for security in love. You seek balance in your personal relationships, and you are not afraid to work hard to achieve it. The practical aspects of partnership are important to you, as you intuitively know that although love is important, relationships also need to work in the real world in order to thrive.

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!
Until December, you continue to benefit from a transiting Saturn trine to your Sun which was with you last year as well and is an especially grounding influence. This gives you a sense of responsibility and a feeling of directedness and purposefulness. Traditional methods work, and thoroughness brings rewards. Practice or refining a technique is favored this year. The approach that seems to work best with this aspect is a step-by-step one and the appreciation of slow but steady progress. Stabilizing elements in your life are appreciated.
There is special charm in the way you present your ideas this year, certainly helping to smooth over differences in your personal relationships. You might often meet with people or connect with projects that benefit you.
This is a time when you feel confident and supported enough to pursue your desires. It’s a good time to take steps towards making yourself feel more secure and safe, and for family or domestic activities. This is also a period when you more readily support or defend your loved ones, and they do the same!
Energy fluctuates this year, however. If you aren’t too rash or impulsive, you might be able to free yourself from restrictive circumstances. You could also have more courage than usual to do things that break the routine, and confrontations engaged in this year could clear the air and help you to move forward.
You might also watch for a tendency to overstate and to neglect important details when making plans. You may have so very many ideas that you end up implementing none if you’re not careful! You are likely to have increased opportunities for travel and/or new learning experiences.
Intensity can characterize your personal relationships and romantic attachments. Passions, feelings of jealousy, and possessiveness run high. You may deal with these emotions in yourself, but you may also need to handle the jealousies and possessiveness of a partner. You might also experience compulsive attractions and attachments, or attraction to complicated love relationships. As well, you may have some tension over your personal finances, and/or need to make a large payment that necessitates changes in your spending habits. Finances may be complicated, such as power struggles with money. You are also very determined to make changes which can be good for you in the long run.
Even so, you’re likely to strengthen and solidify another key relationship. Renewed ties to old friends are possible, or a new sense of responsibility in existing friendships, are also highly likely.
Idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses surface this year. Making connections with others from different backgrounds may figure strongly. Widening your mind through unusual or different experiences can be part of the picture. You more easily make personal sacrifices for what you believe to be the greater good this year.
It is easier than ever to express your individuality in a manner that is true to you in the year ahead. In certain areas of your life, you’re inclined to rock the boat this year so that you can break free from a limiting situation. Be mindful when/if making sweeping changes. Some relationships (or a key one) can be turbulent, while another strengthens. Special care with finances is wise this year. Cooperation brings rewards.
