Your Birthday Year Forecast:
When a Quarter Moon occurs in your Return chart, as it does this year, you are at some sort of a turning point in your life, in terms of personal growth. Events that occur this year act as catalysts that get you in touch with some important issues in your emotional life. Your emotions run high, and mood swings or identity crises are possible. There may be some kind of conflict in your life arising from a great urge to do something different. The year ahead promises to be a busy, dynamic, and significant period in your life.
With Jupiter transiting in harmony with your Sun this year, you have a stronger than usual desire to improve and learn, optimism and confidence are with you, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve this year. Your social life is likely to improve, and travel opportunities may arise. Matters related to universities, higher education, organized religion, publishing, legal affairs, and foreign interests tend to run smoothly. You are likely to enjoy good humor, optimism, and a larger perspective on matters that keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses and strains.
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.
You are especially friendly, expressive, and warm-hearted this year, and you are able to nurture others with your words, ideas, and conduct. You are more able to juggle many different projects and commitments. This can be a year of much learning and sharing, mind expansion, higher education, and possibly travel if you are so inclined.
You are more imaginative and attuned to the world of beauty and romance in the year ahead. Gentleness with others is the best way to attract what you want into your life. There could be truly "magical" times on a romantic and social level. You are especially romantic this year, and you are likely to idealize and expand a relationship through sensitive interactions and a more giving approach. Benefits come through paying attention to your dreams and intuitions, as well as through creativity.
With Mars conjunct Saturn in your Solar Return chart, you are more determined and hard-working than usual. 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.
Good humor and increased courage to take on new challenges bring positive circumstances into your life this year. Learning, traveling, and communications are favored this year, and favorable new contacts can be made through these things. Your love of beauty and romance is enhanced this year, but you also possess good work ethic and you are more thorough and able to see things through to completion.
2013 will be a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It's "nose to the grindstone" time. It's a time to deal with practical matters, and it's not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Positive new relationships are generally not formed in a Four personal year. Advice - get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.
