Your Birthday Year Forecast:
A trine between the Sun and the Moon in your Solar Return chart this year is a fortunate aspect. It suggests that your domestic and career needs are not in competition with one another in the year ahead. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa. This aspect is very powerful and rewarding. It suggests that you will be on top of your game this year, for the most part, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. A comfortable level of personal popularity helps to keep conflict to a minimum. 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!
Your intuition runs especially high this year, and that you are able to apply this increased sensitivity to your pursuits in practical ways. You are more sensitive artistically, your imagination is stirred, and you have an increased appreciation for subtleties. You are inspired and could even inspire others with your words. Some of your hunches could be prophetic. You are thinking more creatively, and you express yourself with increased sensitivity, compassion, and warmth. At the same time, you come across with more authority and responsibility. You may be more deliberate in how you approach communicating with others, choosing your words more carefully and successfully. Improved communications is the end result, and you might be surprised at how this can improve your success in general. A trip to somewhere exotic could figure prominently this year. Bonds with important younger people in your life may be strengthened, as you tend to be more compassionate and understanding with them. As well, younger people are likely to respect you more. Advances in intellectual and mental pursuits are likely, as you make steady progress that has long-lasting results.
Again this year, when it comes to romance and your social life, you might experience compulsive attractions and attachments, or attraction to complicated love relationships. The need for deeper intimacy is present, but fear of this closeness may be just as strong. Something tiny can trigger all sorts of buried emotions, and this can be very revealing! If you find yourself bringing up old hurts, examine the emotional "slush" you've been carrying around with you. Avoid taking it out on your partner or on yourself. Major new insights into love and relationships can occur. Whirlwind changes in your love life and/or financial state are likely this year. 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.
You may experience 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, but creative solutions can be found.
Freedom is sought in your relationships, and your willingness to grant others the same kind and amount of freedom that you desire will be the key to success.
You are especially "tuned in" to current trends and your ability to embrace the new while honoring the tried and true can be a significant key to your success this year. A cooperative attitude also contributes to success. Your love life is likely to be very stimulating and sometimes rocky; your social life is expected to be exciting, as you are ready to try new things.
