If Today Is Your Birthday

The Sun squares Mars and Pluto around the time of your birthday this year--an intense, dynamic, and powerful combination! Power struggles are likely in the year ahead, particularly with men or those in authority. You have transformative energy at your disposal, and how this will play out depends 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. A need to control or gain power may be at the root of frustrations. You are inclined towards pushing yourself too hard in the pursuit of your goals, and it's best to be aware of this tendency so that you don't push yourself beyond your limits. Events that highlight the necessity to put faith in something or someone are likely to arise. You are likely to have more courage than usual to do things that break the routine, and confrontations engaged in this year could clear the air and help you to move forward.

With Mercury in harmonious aspect to Venus and Neptune in your Solar Return chart, you are likely to enjoy happy relations with younger people and to have increased powers of intellect. This is an excellent year for teaching and speaking. Intuition is strong and involved in the decisions you make. You present your ideas with charm and imagination, helping to smooth over differences in your personal relationships as well as aiding you on a professional level. Some of your hunches could be prophetic. You are thinking more creatively, and express yourself with more sensitivity, compassion, and warmth.

Mars trines Neptune in your Solar Return chart, helping to soften matters somewhat. You act more on intuition than ever this year, and your creative impulses are potent. If you are an artist, this could be an especially inspired, imaginative, and productive year. If you are involved in sales, you will be able to tune into your client's inner desires and motivations. Pay attention to your gut feelings, which will, more often than not, give you valuable information.

Venus opposes Neptune in your Solar Return this year. Some caution with your personal finances and your social relationships is in order. Most importantly, you should do your best to watch out for tendencies towards self-deception. Things might look too good to be true, simply because you want to see the best in others. Relationship ups and downs are possible, as this could be a year when romantic mirages are more likely. The "highs" of a relationship may be thrilling, but the accompanying "lows" can be draining. Uncertainty may characterize your love relationships from time to time this year. Be careful not to set yourself up for disappointment. The same goes for finances.

The desire to take control of your life is more important to you than usual this year. Power struggles with others may be the result, but with a little extra effort and self-understanding, you could enjoy increased focus and sense of purpose. The ability to express yourself with charm and imagination helps smooth over some relating problems. Getting your finances and your love life in order plays a big role. Ups and downs and a few disappointments in these areas of life are likely. Acting on your intuition will serve you well as long as you can discern between impulses that are intuitive and those that are purely defiant.

2007 is a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It's generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice - take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.

2008 will be a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice - let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.
