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
With Uranus electrifying your Sun this year, you can expect a more
liberated and interesting year than most. Changes are in store for you,
and they're likely to be very positive if you recognize and honor your
need for newness in your life. This influence brings about big changes,
sudden events, unanticipated disruptions, and surprising situations into
your life. These happenings are likely to have a major impact on your
character, vitality, and individuality. You are undergoing a dramatic
change during which you may feel the urge to break out and embrace new
and exciting things. Life will be exciting--and the changes positive--if
you go with the flow. If you deny your urge for change, feelings of
restlessness and rebelliousness will unexpectedly erupt, prompting
sudden lunges for freedom that can have surprising results and
However, at the same time, Pluto is transiting square your Sun again this
year. This is a year in which you are refining and reshaping your personality and your life path.
Some obsessive behavior is possible - perhaps you are trying to
cling to a behavior that suited you in the past, but that has now outgrown its
purpose or is in need of an overhaul. Your emotions tend to be turbulent. You
are likely to experience events that highlight the necessity to share and trust.
Events and circumstances are such that you learn about your own
personal strength. You may have to deal with willfulness and issues of power and
competition - in others and in yourself.
Sudden flashes of insight increase your spiritual awareness. You may
become more outspoken, even rebellious. Career breaks or changes are
possible. Alternatively, you might change the direction of your life
path to suit the "new you". Unexpected events may cause you to rethink
some of your goals and ambitions. In the area of relationships, there
could be sudden attachments and equally sudden breakups. Ongoing
connections with others may also undergo abrupt fluctuations. This is a
year in which you may surprise everyone around you, as you are likely to
be "finding yourself", regardless of your age. This can have
positive results if you consciously watch that you don't act in an
adolescent or rebellious fashion. Listen to your heart - act rather than
You are especially creative and expressive this year, and you
might often act on impulse. Your love life may be especially animated.
You succeed best in fields or areas that allow you to make something
beautiful, attractive, and/or entertaining.
You are particularly dynamic at this point in your life, sometimes impatient, and you often experience bursts of energy.
You are courageous, but be careful to not go to such
extremes that you are foolhardy, as this inclines you to mishaps.
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.
Personal magnetism is tremendous this year. You are playfully
competitive and might win a major competition, if applicable. This is a
good period for creative projects and joining with others in pursuing a
You are thinking more creatively, and
express yourself with more sensitivity, compassion, and warmth. Getting your point across is
easier, as it's not only about what specific words you choose to communicate,
you intuitively express the meaning and intention behind the words. You can
effectively use words to soothe, heal, and teach this year. You are also more
open to new ways of looking at problems, thus it's considerably easier to find

actions this year. Bursts of creativity and energy help you to further your goals this
year. Energy and motivation levels are variable, so take advantage of
the periods when you feel inspired. People can't easily push you into
doing much of anything right now, as you seem to need to feel inspired
from within. Healthy risk-taking is likely this year, as you are more
able to spot an opportunity when you see one. It is easier than usual to
break free from habits that have previously held you back from going
after what you want in life.
The year ahead is likely to be an exciting one in which new
initiatives and changes in your social life are likely. You might often
act on impulse. This is likely to be a highly creative year, particularly in
communications fields. Energy levels can be variable, however, so that
time management is especially important. Nevertheless, when you are
motivated, you can accomplish great things, bringing new life to old
goals, and realistic elements to dreams that previously lacked some
