Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The Sun in harmonious aspect to the Moon in your Solar Return chart is a pleasant aspect, suggesting that your domestic and career needs are not in competition with one another this year. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa. You are likely to 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 keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there will be less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!
You are especially interested in setting goals and challenges for yourself this year, and taking the necessary action to meet them. You may meet or interact with others who encourage or inspire you in some way to have more confidence in yourself. Your energy levels are generally strong this year, and your sense of timing better than usual. You tend to instinctively know the right course of action to take in most situations. Your desire nature is strong, and increased physical activity, including sexual, is likely. Independent work is favored and competitive activities may also thrive this year. Joie de vivre and increased energy can truly enhance your life in many ways, not only because you are more able to enjoy life this way, but also because others sense your dynamism and you are likely to attract good things to you as a result. Stress is eased as you feel more confident about your abilities and your judgment. Also, you are more able to assert yourself without rubbing people the wrong way.
However, it's quite likely that you will be re-evaluating relationships in terms of whether or not they are contributing to your personal growth. You can face some hurtles as you move forward, one of which is likely to be tricky dynamics in close personal relationships. By December, Neptune's challenging transit to your Sun ends - an influence that has been with you since April 2011 and that may have at times confused you as to what direction your life should take. As this transit lifts, life tends to become considerably clearer.
You are more determined and hard-working than usual this year. Circumstances are such that you need to take care of business, and as a result, you can have a very serious disposition at times. This is an excellent period for getting organized and for sticking with projects through to the end. When you face obstacles to your goals, which is a likely scenario this year, you are likely to just keep on pushing. Progress may be slow, but it's steady and solid. What you accomplish now will benefit you for years to come.
You are likely to be popular with others when it comes to your ideas and communications, especially as you are communicating with optimism and cheerfulness, and this can bring rewarding experiences and opportunities into your life.
You could feel as if your spiritual and material goals harmonize or at least donít get in each other's way this year. Circumstances and your own attitude facilitate following through on your dreams or turning your visions and ideals into reality. You are building stronger faith and acceptance this year, and others tend to value you for these qualities.
There is a subtle sense of moving forward this year, although some attention to wrapping up past projects is necessary. You possess good work ethic and you are more thorough and able to see things through to completion. Circumstances are such that you need to take care of business and apply yourself to practical matters. New ideas are abundant, and lines of communication open up to you in the year ahead.
2013 will be a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice - Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.
