As you may have noticed, most people tend to feel pretty good on their birthdays, and that's because of the positioning of the Sun.

Sun - Recognition and Rewards

In astrology, the Sun reflects your core self, including your own sense of self as well as recognition and appreciation from others.

Recognition and Rewards: The Sun

Sun conjunct Mars

Prepare to get your way

If you've ever felt like getting your way, the next 12 months are what you've been waiting for. You've got a fire under you, and your energy levels are so high, you may find yourself wishing you didn't have to sleep. This is really a time that's all about you, and quite frankly, you're determined to make sure everyone else knows that. As you're scrambling your way up the career ladder -- or into the arms of a loved one -- remember to try to avoid stepping on people's toes.When it comes to your career, you might as well pick a goal (or many) and go for it. Your chance of working your way to success is extremely high. You have just the right amount of ambition and adventure in you to take the big risks necessary for great achievements. Be sure to keep an eye on your temper -- it could be your downfall. All the same rules apply to your love life. If you're already with someone, your tremendous passion could very easily rekindle the romance. Just remember to give them a break sometimes, as they may have a hard time keeping up! If you're still looking for the perfect someone, try to be considerate when you do find them -- they've just been completely swept off their feet by you and are probably still trying to catch their breath.

Sun conjunct Mercury

Think fast

Communication is about to become a major part of your life, in a very noticeable way. Who you are and how you think are one and the same, and will be for the entire year. From business affairs to matters of the heart, you'll know exactly what to say and when to say it. In fact, others may have a difficult time keeping up with you mentally -- but don't worry, they'll catch up eventually! Focus on being as clear as possible, and remember that there are other ways to communicate besides speaking. Writing a note to a special someone in your life is more than just romantic; it's an unexpected, tangible treat that will prove just how much you care. And you don't even have to 'say' a word!Writing, in general, is a great way to make the most of your year. If you ever wanted to be an author or journalist, this is your year to go for it. Keeping a diary or a scrapbook is another way to channel all your mental energy. You might consider joining a book club, as your critical faculties are highlighted. It's romantic if you're already part of a couple, and great way to meet someone new if you're single. Another great way to meet like-minded people is to take a class -- learn to speak Italian, and you just might find someone to travel with you to Italy!

Sun trine Saturn

Disciplined and dependable

You are what you do, and what you do is who you are. Your ego and your actions mesh exceptionally well. This will be an excellent year to take a close look at who you are and what you need to do to improve your life. You'll have all the discipline you need to do that job and do it well -- as well as whatever anyone else requests of you.So, it comes as no surprise that your job will go remarkably well for you. You can take on any project you're handed, and not only will the results be perfect, but you'll enjoy the work. You're decisive in your actions, and your grounded mentality will just add to your comfortable sense of responsibility. With such a strong focus on work, though, it may be surprising how important love is to you right now. The next 12 months will see you in a committed and dedicated frame of mind, and you'll be eager to take a more serious look at moving romance to the next level. In the midst of all of this, take some time to try to get to know yourself a bit better, too. You're on the track to self-discovery, and the timing is right for you to make some drastic changes -- if that's what you decide you want.

Major life changes

You cannot keep living your life as you have been. Something must change, and if you don't make that happen, then the Universe will -- and it won't be pretty. Like a snake shedding its skin, you must peel away at your own layers and protective barriers. As you do so, you'll become more and more true to yourself -- and only then will you be able to successfully conquer anything else life throws your way.Transformations like this are never easy, and you'll find your year is complicated by power struggles, emotional entanglements, self-denial and obsessive-compulsive tendencies. Accept any challenging tasks that are offered up. They may be difficult, and you may find they bring you to the end of your ropes, but when you finally finish, the end result will take you to a higher level of personal acceptance. Each accomplishment can also help take you to the next stage of your development. Relationships of all kinds will be especially trying and fraught with deceit and secrets. But that may work out in the end -- you'll need to accept that this is a year for you to focus on your own personal growth.

Sun quincunx Neptune

Turn within for the answers

Decisions just aren't your thing, are they? Basically, for the next year, your job, your love life, standing up for yourself and facing reality will all fall into the category of 'not your thing,' as well. Are you beginning to wonder just what your thing is? Quite frankly, it's you. But not in an egotistical sense; instead this is a time for introspection and learning to see yourself clearly.You'll be tempted to look outward to friends and family for answers to the question, 'who am I?' But the only person who really knows the answer is you -- you just need to dig a bit deeper. That will be a struggle for you this year, since you'd much rather drift into a dream world and let the real one slip away. Even though you would prefer a fast trip to enlightenment, that's just not possible. You have to take your time; uncovering who you truly are is not something that can be rushed or put on the fast track. Remain patient and you'll get there. If you want to go to a movie for a brief little retreat from time to time, that will work well, but you need to make sure you always come back quickly.

Sun quincunx Uranus

An odd perspective

Eccentric doesn't even begin to describe you. The stars will give you such an odd perspective of the world around you this year, that others will be inclined to ask what happened to the real you. The reality is that you've just got one heck of a finely tuned mind, and you're much more aware of everything around you than almost anyone else. However, it's likely that people will take your strange behavior and comments as attempts to rock the boat, rather than be impressed by them.There are two ways to respond to the criticism of others during this stretch of time. Your first option is to take what they say to heart and try to change who you are to fit some sort of societal norm. But beware: if you follow this route, you'll struggle throughout the year as your mind rebels against your actions. Your other option is to take things in stride and with humor. Turn it all into a satire -- write it out, create a comic strip, anything that will help those around you see the lighter side to your incredible insights. They'll catch on to the insights themselves later on. It'll just take some time.

Mind Expansion: Mercury

Mercury in Libra

The scales of justice

The scales of justice weigh heavily on your mind, but in a pleasing manner, similar to the way a new love interest might take up much of your thoughts. In fact, there's a very good chance that when you're not contemplating both sides to every issue, you will be thinking of a current or potential partner. You'll seek out harmony in every situation and you'll happily consider every option in an effort to find the one that will help the most people. Conflict will hold no place in your life, and you'll go out of your way to avoid it.You will make an excellent peacekeeper or arbitrator in legal or difficult situations, but beware of the circumstances that require you to make a decision. You'll be so obsessed with seeing every angle, that you'll have a hard time choosing one particular direction. If you absolutely must make a choice, try not to think too much about it. Accept all the information you have, and then follow whatever is intuitively in your heart. Your first instinct is likely your best move, so feel free and confident to go with it, even if the decision seems fast. Understand too that although you abhor conflict, you must deal with it on occasion. Stick with only the most worthy battles though, in an effort to protect your sanity.

Mercury square Pluto

Crossing the line of obsession

Once you've decided something is important and worth your attention, woe to anyone who tries to change your direction or your mind. You'll become easily focused, to the point of obsession, on anything that manages to find a place in your brain. Whether this means solving a problem or convincing others to see something your way, you'll be absolutely relentless. Folks will just have to get out of your way to avoid being lost in the shuffle of that problem-solving machine you've got lodged in your head.If there has been a prickly point in your life about which you'd like to come to an understanding and possibly smooth out, this will be your year. You just won't let up until all the pieces have fallen into place -- and even then you'll still push around at them a bit to make sure nothing is loose. Through it all, the most important thing for you to remember will be to keep an open mind and remain tolerant of other people's thoughts about your actions and opinions. Just because you think it, doesn't necessarily make it so, and if you can't back down just a little, every now and then, you'll find that those you care most about will have a hard time being around you.

Love and Romance: Venus

Venus in Virgo

Love's details

Yes, there are times when you should go over everything with a fine-toothed comb to be sure you don't miss any details. Being in love is not one of those times. Nonetheless, you'll be inclined to focus on the details of all your romantic encounters this year, which could make them something of a challenge. In fact, romance is likely to take some extra time for you. You won't be prepared to share your heart and emotions immediately -- or even after a little while. Rather than expecting romance to work right away, you'll want to take some time to get to know yourself first. Until you understand who you are and how you connect to others, you won't be able to overcome the details of love that bog you down. Your highly-strung, and possibly uptight, approach to love could actually turn people off if you can't learn to loosen up. Study your relationships to try to determine which areas that have had you caught up are actually irrelevant. Then, take a step back and see the big picture. And stay there. The big picture, specifically how you feel when you're with someone, is more important than the smaller things. If someone chewing their nails is driving you that batty, then you need to go back to evaluating yourself some more.

Venus trine Jupiter

Perfect contentment

Imagine a lazy Sunday afternoon. It's sunny and warm out, so you bask in the sun for a little while. Then you come in and watch TV or read a book for a while; maybe you take a nap and then wake up in time to order some take-out dinner. Nothing great happened, but it's one of those peaceful, contented days that just make you happy. Now, imagine having that feeling for an entire year.You've got a wonderfully pleasant year ahead of you. You'll have plenty of opportunities for romance, either improving one you're already in or starting a new relationship. Although you may not experience anything that's amazingly great, you'll feel comfortable and content with where you are in life. The only downside to this will be that you could become so satisfied you tend toward laziness and are unlikely to motivate yourself to reach your full potential. Turn to your creative side for inspiration, as you'll appreciate all forms of art, both of your own creation and of others. You may also develop a predisposition for overindulgence. For the most part, you're going to enjoy the year and come out of it feeling refreshed and revitalized.

Venus sextile Mars

Building relationships

From romance to friendship, you'll have a knack for building strong relationships with people. And whether you're part of a couple or searching for that perfect person, you'll have the skills and the luck to make it all work out. You'll have an incredible energy surging through you this year, and if you direct it toward romance, you'll reap the rewards.Be as social as possible for the next 12 months -- get out on the town, go out on dates, have fun with your friends -- anything to keep that energy flowing into positive, exciting outlets. In fact, you'll have something of a flair for exciting and stimulating relationships, whether friendly or romantic, and you can bet those around you will have a hard time getting enough of you. You'll be strong-willed when necessary and more than willing to stand up for any issue or person who needs your support. Building and creating are key, whether that means building up relations or applying yourself to creative projects. All of this will only add to your magnetic appeal, and people just won't be able to help but be drawn to you. Make them happy and host many parties and get-togethers. Again, the more social you are, the more you'll enjoy your year.

Venus opposite Saturn

Who's really in control?

The battle for control is about to commence. From relationships to work to finances to your emotions, you'll be struggling to be in charge of anything and everything around you. Ironically, the harder you try to maintain control, the more people you'll come across who are trying to do the same to you. Even when others aren't placing restrictions on you, you'll project your own onto them, and they'll still come across as controlling. It's going to be up to you to understand what's happening and make the effort to free yourself of your own constraints.Your biggest challenge this year will be breaking down the wall to your emotions. Your conflict with relationships will be difficult enough, but if you can't come to terms with your true feelings, you'll never get anywhere. The best thing you can do is just learn to lighten up a bit and not take yourself so seriously. Don't try to deny that any of your problems exist, as that will probably only result in making matters worse. Instead, enjoy your life for what it is and don't get so caught up in your pessimistic details. You might want to spend some extra time at work if you're really feeling out of control since a project that you're working on will provide some level of power.

Ambition and Desire: Mars

Mars in Scorpio

A romantic hot commodity

You are a sexual, passionate animal. From this birthday to your next, you will be driven, mysterious, dynamic and exciting, making you a hot commodity in the relationship department. More than most people, your sexual energy will be well integrated with the rest of your soul, and you will have little trouble expressing just how you feel and what you want. You'll experience more severe emotional mood swings than usual, and they'll likely dictate how aggressively you assert yourself, but that comes with the territory when your passions run so deep.You may feel a lot of pressure to conform or suppress your inclinations and urges, and it will be up to you to defend your position both for yourself and for the others out there who don't have the courage to do it for themselves. If there's one thing you won't lack, it will certainly be the courage to stand up for yourself! Where you might have some difficulties will be standing up to yourself. Everyone has their inner demons, but yours will be front and center, and you'll need to decide how you're going to deal with them, whether you let them run your life or whether you take control and turn your passions into fun and exciting interactions.

Mars trine Saturn

Energized at work

Someone has to do the grunt work, and there's no reason it can't be you. You may not be able to offer up the most glamorous talents this year, but you will be able to dedicate yourself to your work in an honest and energetic manner that will prove to your coworkers and employers just how dedicated you are. The enthusiasm you exude will motivate others to work their best as well, prompting a successful and encouraging work atmosphere. This will open doors for you, and you could find yourself in the role of leader, if you're not there already.On the relationship front, you'll probably be looking for something more serious and long term. If you're already part of a couple, you may want to try to take things to the next level (moving in together or even marriage?). If you still haven't found that someone special, you'll probably start looking for someone else who's as serious-minded about love as you will be. Keep in mind, though, that this is all assuming you can drag yourself away from your work long enough to remember that romance exists. But love will be worth the effort, so do what you can to make some extra time for a few romantic nights.

Mars opposite Jupiter

A balancing act

Balance is a key part of life, and that's exactly what you'll be struggling with as you work your way through the year. One side of you is burning to get on with life, to get out there and forge ahead in new directions. Meanwhile, the other side realizes the value of learning and adequate mental development. How do you reconcile these two forces? Well, you do it with the patience that you don't quite seem to have enough of.You must figure out how to temper your passion and energy so you can learn greater respect and find a better use for your mental capacities. Your mind will be quite quick and effective, but you may let opportunities pass because you consider them to boring or studious. Most importantly, you'll need to make sure you don't put yourself in danger over your beliefs. Faith in your beliefs is strong, but this does not mean that you need to go to the street corner and start preaching. Instead, you should practice tolerance and realize that being self-righteous does not make you right. If you find you absolutely must defend yourself, then don't ever forget that the pen truly is mightier than the sword -- stand up for yourself.Meanwhile, your spurts of physical energy give way, sooner or later, to periods of exhaustion. When you're feeling up, you can't say no to new projects. By the end of the day, you've taken on way more than you can chew. Pacing yourself, and practicing the phrase 'I'll get back to you on that,' will help you find the fulcrum of the energy see saw you're riding this year.

Mars square Pluto

Controlling your lust for power

Do you remember Princess Leia's comments in the original Star Wars about 'The more you tighten your grip, the more star systems will slip through your fingers'? Well, you may not be dealing with star systems, but the lesson there will become brutally obvious to you this year: The more you try to control something, the less control you'll have. Nonetheless, you will be relentless when it comes to attempting to achieve absolute control. That will be your goal, and you will go to any dark and dangerous means necessary to try to satisfy your lust for power. Using devious measures and manipulation to get your way may seem like a good idea at the time, but this will ultimately lead you into trouble from which you'll have a hard time escaping. Don't think for a moment that control in a romantic relationship is anything to strive for. You'll easily confuse anger with passion, and the result could be that you end up alone. In fact, going it alone may be your best solution this year. There are some deep and dark roads to self-discovery you need to head down, and the fewer people you take with you, the better of you'll all be in the end.

Travel and Finding Truth: Jupiter

Jupiter in Taurus

Earthly wisdom

The world around you can offer up plenty of learning opportunities that you can use to improve your life. It will simply be up to you to uncover these and use them to your advantage these next 12 months. Nature, especially, can provide a wealth of knowledge. From the growth of the plants to the communication between animals, there's a lot for you to learn. One of the most valuable lessons you can learn this year will be to take pleasure in all the small things around you.It's time to unravel any cynical attitudes that may have been holding you back. Your life does not need to be any more complicated than you make it, and only you have the capabilities to make things easier for yourself. If possible, take responsibility for holding down the fort. If you're smart with your investments, you could create some extra time for yourself. Plus, notwithstanding your tendencies to go to excess with food and sex, you'll have a good grasp of the essentials of life, and your love and understanding of security will make you a solid rock that those close to you can build upon. Share your wisdom of creating this ideal life with others -- they may not heed your advice immediately, but you'll have at least planted the seed of knowledge.

Jupiter retrograde

Open Your Mind

For hundreds of years, people believed the world was flat. And then, in what was comparatively a blink of the eye, they were forced to change their views and accept that the earth was round. Don't be surprised if your beliefs go through a similarly drastic about-face, this year. You'll need to remain completely open-minded when it comes to the values of others because you never know when you might be completely stunned to discover that they could actually be right. This doesn't mean that you'll have to disregard the beliefs and faith you've worked so hard to develop over the years, but it does mean that there may be more to life than just what you understand at the beginning of the year. Travel as much as possible to open yourself up to new ways of thinking, and then share what you've learned. Talk with people you come across, and maybe even think of becoming a teacher. This will be one of those times where you may not even realize change is happening until much later. Just remember that, regardless of what you think or feel about the events and values around you, it's important to remain open to them -- they may just change your life!

Jupiter conjunct Uranus

A futuristic mind

One of the most amazing aspects of science fiction is that a certain portion of it somehow ends up being true years and years later. That's how your mind will be working in the coming months -- it'll just be so far out there that your ideas will seem like fiction, but wait a few years and suddenly everyone will realize just how right you were. Your mind will be working in hyperdrive, and it might be a good idea for you to write everything down so everyone else will have an easier time catching up later.Spend as much of your time traveling as possible, as new locations and cultures will enhance your imagination and bring even crazier ideas to the forefront. Living for the present may be difficult this year, so go ahead and let your mind wander into uncharted territory. Take advantage of your incredible technical savvy at work and wow your superiors with your brilliant solutions to age-old problems. Meanwhile, if you're looking for love, try to find someone who can share your vision of the future. Or, if you're already part of a happy couple, you should talk everything through with your partner so they'll understand what's going on in that head of yours.

Responsibilities and Restriction: Saturn

Saturn in Pisces

Faith in the unknown

So much out there is unexplained, intangible and just not understood. And yet you'll be asked to put your faith in it, anyway. Scary? Yes. But doable? Probably. Your fears may hold you back for a while. The unknown is always a scary place to visit, but you'll be asked to live there this year. Irrational thoughts will rule your world, and you'll feel like you don't have enough control over the chaotic circumstances that take hold of your life. Sometimes you need to take a leap of faith and trust that things will work themselves out in the end.In response to this, you may have problems with drugs or other addictions. You could also develop relationship issues, and you may not feel comfortable devoting yourself to someone else or relating to others with true compassion. However, once you can accept that you have these fears and faults, you can work on improving them. At that point you will begin to build up faith again, and you'll be more likely to be able to develop a compassionate and unconditional love, as well as a more matured trust in the intangibles of life, such as the mystical and spiritual aspects.

Saturn retrograde

Back to the Drawing Board

The drawing board is where it's at this year, and that's where you should try to spend most of your time. You could turn into a planning machine if you give yourself half a chance. And these won't be what-to-do-on-Friday-night plans, but rather, what-to-do-with-the-rest-of-your-life plans. Keep in mind though, that the year is about plans, not so much about taking action. You'll have the rest of your life to figure out how to turn your ideas into reality, so, for the time being, you should just focus on coming up with those ideas.One of the problems you'll face -- and this would be especially true if you were to try to go big with your plans -- is that you'll feel inhibited by some sort of authority figures or societal rules. Whether your boss isn't in the mood to listen to your proposal, or you can't get a permit to open a store in your neighborhood, you'll start to feel like you're being blocked every step of the way. So relax a bit and follow the rules for now. The time will come soon enough when you'll know that your planning needs to turn into action.

This Year's Karma: North Node

Northnode in Aries

Your true individuality

The desire to discovering your true individuality will hold a strong power over you this year. You'll be looking to develop a freer, more accurate way to express yourself as a distinct entity, separate and unrelated to those around you. This may sound an awful lot like a teenager struggling to find themselves, and it is similar, but your actions and reactions in trying to find yourself will go much deeper than just understanding your place in society. You will attempt to walk away with a truer idea of who you are and where you're going by the time your next birthday rolls around.You are already familiar with your place in in society and in your more personal relationships. The path to your future will start when you step beyond that and attempt to familiarize yourself with who you are as an individual. You will seek out challenges in an effort to fulfill the independent energy within. This could include anything from pulling away from a comfortable partnership to heading off on your own with your career. You don't want to alienate others in your search for your identity, but you will need to head out on your own if you're going to succeed in following your life path this year.

Broader Influences

Uranus in Taurus

Secure changes

You are heading into a unique situation in which you will have the power to make major change, but you'll be able to do so in a grounded and safe way. Progressive action can be scary and unpredictable, but you will manage to create a smooth balance between the radical ideas flowing through your mind and the processes needed to turn these ideas into reality. You will certainly see some major transformations occur in many aspects of your life, and possibly in aspects of the rest of the world as well.There is much wisdom to be gained from this world, both from nature and from history. Unlocking these secrets will be the key to keeping your originality and growth moving forward in a stable manner. Two of your major weaknesses this year could, ironically, be a fear of change and an impatience about upcoming transitions. Mixed in with your forward-thinking ways will be a stubborn steak, a part of you that just wants everything to remain the same. At the same time, you'll be giddy waiting for your plans to go into effect. If possible, try to find a happy medium. Your mental powers will be strong and stabling this year, so don't forget to use them on your own psyche as well.

Uranus trine Pluto

Adaptable to change

Wow, who could have guessed there was so much out there to learn? You knew there was a lot, but as this year progresses, you'll slowly begin to fathom just how broad our collective knowledge really is. And with your mind as open as it will be, you will jump on the bandwagon to learn as much as humanly possible while you can. Philosophy will also come to you in a new light. Where you once saw a jumbled mess of thoughts, you will now see enlightenment. You'll develop a new appreciation for what's been called the 'higher science.'A new understanding of your own consciousness will also blow you away. It will feel like there was an attic to your soul and the door was always locked, but somehow, this year, you found the key. And the effect will be jaw-dropping. There's so much about yourself that you probably didn't really understand or know about, but now you'll be ready to take your new insight and use it to improve your world. Change will become a necessity to you as you discover which of your traits and current choices could use a makeover. You will try to initiate it yourself, rather than waiting for someone or some event to come along that will force you to change. Fortunately, you'll adapt easily to any new development that comes your way.

Spiritual technology

Ever notice how so many of the greatest artists and writers got no credit for their work when it first came out? That's because they were too far ahead of their times -- sort of like you in the coming months. The exception being that you won't have quite as hard a time getting your ideas out (though it will still be a challenge). You'll have a wonderful openness to new thoughts and concepts, and you'll develop a clear style of communication that will help others see and understand your point of view. They may not agree at first, but they'll come around eventually.You will develop a lovely balance between science and spirituality this year. Technology will motivate you to turn to your spiritual side in an effort to understand all that's going on and why it's here. You might want to turn to less orthodox realms such as astrology, tarot or the occult to satisfy the unusual side of you. It will be your goal to push the boundaries of human knowledge farther out, and if anything can raise some eyebrows it will be going out of the mainstream for religious or spiritual beliefs. You, if no one else, will certainly develop a highly evolved understanding of the dynamics of human experience.

Altruistic motives

The truest compassion is not something that comes and goes depending on your moods or the circumstances, but rather, it's a state of being. It should be given out as unconditional love for all creatures, good and bad. The most real feelings of brotherhood and sisterhood will come to you this year when you are able to develop a genuine empathy for all creatures on earth. You will feel something of a craving to get out and help those in need as much as possible, and that's one craving you should certainly give in to. Volunteer at homeless shelters, children's organizations, hospitals, etc. -- anything that will leave you satisfied with the work you've done.Your spiritual connection will also become much stronger, and you'll feel an overwhelming desire to transcend the rational world and move more fully into your belief system. Again, feel free to give in to the desire. Let your dream world and your imagination guide you along the path to enlightenment. Just be sure you don't fall astray into the world of escapism. Though you might enjoy yourself there, you will not fully complete yourself until you leave the physical realm behind your entirely.

The cycle of life

The cycle of life says that something must die in order for more life to go on. This could be something traumatic like a mother dying in childbirth, but that's extremely rare compared to all the other little things that occur by the millions every day. A piece of rotten fruit in a field provides nutrients to animals passing by or the soil below it. A caterpillar turns into a butterfly. Even you getting rid of old clothes to make room for new ones falls under this category. Change and transformation are simply processes of life, and ones that we deal with every day.This year, however, you'll be more sensitive to the transformations that occur, and they'll become a part of who you are. It will likely be a very spiritual time for you, as you will begin to question all that goes on around you. Just what is the reason for our cyclical behavior? How can one concept apply to every aspect of life (e.g. for every action there is an opposite and equal reaction)? These questions and many others will plague you as you make a transition from simply accepting the world around you, to really seeing its complexities and wondering if a powerful being is in charge, or if everything just fell into place somehow, like a well-oiled machine.

Societal transformation

Your mission for the year will be a total overhaul of all the outmoded forms of society that can no longer measure up or function as they're supposed to. Sound like a big job? It is. But you can start by just focusing on the structure of your own life and trying to transform that before you even attempt to tackle societal issues. One of the key areas you might want to look at improving, though, will be your social status. The higher you can raise your social standing, the more freedom you'll have to make more necessary changes later on.In fact, if you can increase your social status, you'll actually be on the path to breaking up some of society's most useless structures, which involve placing power in a small minority. Your goal is to work your way into that minority and try to break it up from the inside. Again, this is by no means a small task, and you should only focus on your own life this year. Maybe a promotion at work can help you reset some of your corporate structures, giving you practice for a bigger job later on. If you want to jump right in to freeing society from the power of the social elites, then see what kind of luck you can have in your own town. Volunteer for an elected official or get your own name on the ballot for the next election.

Next Steps

I hope you have enjoyed the valuable insight, wisdom and guidance of this astrology report. You might be a little curious about astrology and perhaps wondering how an astrologer can know so much about you!

Astrology is a mathematical system. It's all about applying meaning to numbers, or more specifically, finding meaning in the movements of the planets around the Sun, as viewed from our perspective here on earth. These planetary movements are easily captured and recorded with measurements, calculations, angles and so on.

That's why astrology works so well with computers, whose programs are also based on numbers and formulas. In 'the old days' -- thousands of years ago, when astrology was first recorded -- those early astrologers had to painstakingly observe the heavens and catalog their observations for the next generation of astrologers to build upon. Thank goodness for the computer age! Now we can simply use computers to make those calculations quickly and pull just the applicable pieces of information. Now, astrology is instant, based upon thousands of years of observations obtained through careful methodology.

Interpretations of planetary positions are based in part on ancient Greek and Roman mythology, but your astrological report is unique, describing you and you only. Even in the case of twin siblings, their birth charts differ from each other's in at least a few ways. And besides, no one amounts to just a simple interpretation of their birth chart; everyone's personality is complex. Your astrological report leaves plenty of room for variations based on your free will, personal growth and transformation over a lifetime.

Just like you, your astrological report is unique. It’s generated online in seconds and provides you with instant insight at your fingertips. Whether you have a pressing question about your future or you just want some guidance and direction, now you can have it all -- in a fast, focused, all-about-you format.

You can choose from several different types to find the report that's right for you and your needs. Your natal report is all about you -- your unique characteristics, strengths, weaknesses, potential and so on. Compatibility reports analyze the connections between two different people, to see how well and in what ways they get along. And a forecast is based on where the planets are today and how they're affecting you, uniquely. Be sure to try a free sample of another report to find out more about you!
