The Year Ahead

Forecast for January 2008 to January 2009

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!

With Venus and Mars in a hard aspect to each other, your affections are strongly stimulated, and you are more acutely aware of your powers of attraction. Romance, love, and sexuality occupy your mind more than usual. You can enjoy an increase in personal magnetism (as well as libido!), but be wary of competitiveness or tension in existing love relationships, as this aspect ignites your passions in general, whether they‘re feelings of love or anger!

Venus forms a harmonious aspect to Neptune in your Solar Return chart this year, however, suggesting that you are more imaginative and attuned to the world of beauty and romance. Gentleness with others is the best way to harness this energy and to attract what you want into your life. There could be truly "magical" times on a romantic and social level. You might even find and fall in love with the person of your dreams. Benefits come through paying attention to your dreams and intuitions.

Mars opposes Pluto at the time of your birthday, adding quite a bit of intense energy to your year. You have powerful, transformative energy at your disposal this year, and much will depend on how you handle it. Channeled positively, you could move mountains when it comes to pushing your projects ahead. If mishandled, however, you could be argumentative, stressed, and hell-bent on having your way! Avoid taking extreme measures to make things happen your way, and avoid people who might be doing same. Deliberately trying to maneuver things in order to get the upper hand will be a lesson in frustration. Mars also forms a harmonious aspect to Neptune, helping to soften your disposition. You are more inclined to act upon your intuition, your sexual fantasies may be especially strong, and your creative impulses are potent. In stark contrast to the intensity of the aspect described above, there will be other times this year when you will have a "what will be, will be" attitude. This influence favors dancing, swimming, photography, arts, and entertainment. If you are an artist, this could be an especially inspired, imaginative, and productive year. Pay attention to your gut feelings, which will, more often than not, give you valuable information. If you are involved in sales, you will be able to tune into your client's inner desires and motivations.

With Mars trine the Moon's North Node, you may be actively involved with teamwork and collaboration with others this year. This can also indicate an increased need for sexual union, as it stirs the passions and generally indicates ease in satisfying one's desires through positive connections with others. This aspect is one indication of getting engaged, marrying, the beginning of a significant new relationship, or the intensification of an existing romance.

A Mercury-Chiron conjunction in your Solar Return suggests that this is an excellent period for opening up communications with others, as you are more sensitive than usual and more willing to listen. 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 solutions.

Jupiter harmonizes with Saturn at the time of your birthday this year, suggesting a period of constructive accomplishment. In general, you are practical, realistic, and your judgment is especially sound--and you derive much satisfaction from practical accomplishment. The key to harnessing this wonderful energy is to identify and find pleasure in the simple things that make you happy. A nice balance between optimism and practicality is with you this year.

More involvement with groups enhances your life, and the ability to find a balance between optimism and practicality helps you to achieve your goals. Some intensity and a tendency to overdo is likely, however. Avoiding power struggles with others and jumping into decisions before giving issues careful thought, will be necessary. Plenty of romantic excitement is in store, and while there can be some tension involved, there could also be some truly magical moments in your love life this year. Your creativity soars.

2009 will be a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is less active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract both things and people. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice - be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect.


Hmmmm No romance, except maybe with life! That horoscope reminds me how much the stars come in to play when one is "in love." I remember well studying the horoscopes when I was in junior high and high sure I had "the one." When I married...well we will leave that to the stars, eh? As far as all those famous people: I have always enjoyed sharing a birthday with Betty White. I adore her. Who doesn't like James Earl Jones? He is so well loved that he even gets listed twice. I would love to have that man read to me every night. Anyway, thanks for letting the secret out of the bag, my dear friend. Your flag day is coming...I have six months to plot.

Hey, it's Kevin Costner's birthday, too. Two events that were in the paper today:
1778: English navigator Captain James Cook reached the Hawaiian Islands, which he dubbed the "Sandwich Islands".
1943: A wartime ban on the sale of sliced bread in the US went into effect. It was aimed at reducing bakeries' demand for metal replacement parts.

You are officially hotter than sliced bread. Hooray for another birthday!

(who is scared, real scared :)
