Solar Return

Your Personalized Birthday Forecast

EACH YEAR, RIGHT AROUND THE TIME OF YOUR BIRTHDAY, THE SUN RETURNS TO THE EXACT POSITION IT WAS IN AT THE MOMENT OF YOUR BIRTH.
This is considered to be your own personal New Year, and it's known as the Solar Return. Astrologers have found that if you study the positioning of all the planets at that moment -- their relationships to each other and their placements in the signs -- you can gain insight into the upcoming year, until the Sun returns again.

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, after all, can come from formal, outside sources, such as a raise at work or a trophy for winning the game; from more intimate outside sources, such as your friends or partner...

Your Stress and Relaxation Ratings

On your birthday, everyone wishes you a wonderful year ahead. But what's it really going to be like? It can't all be a barrel of monkeys. We've created these meters to give you that at-a-glance view you need of your year ahead.

The Stress meter measures the potential for obstacles in the coming year. Whether it's one trouble spot after another or you've got a free ticket to Easy Street, remember that every hurdle life tosses up in your path presents a lesson. That's what life is all about -- jumping through hoops, growing and learning.
The Relaxation meter measures the easy times ahead -- those days and weeks when you'll have a smile on your face and a spring in your step regardless of what's going on around you. Though you may think you want a high Relaxation score and a low Stress one, it's actually best if you come out somewhere in the middle on both meters. That way, your year will be fun, interesting and complex -- just like you!... Read more

Recognition and Rewards: The Sun

Sun trine Jupiter

A year of optimism

What's better than optimism? Having your optimistic hopes and beliefs turn into reality. This will be an excellent year for your career, as everything you've been working on will finally reach the big payoff, and you'll receive the recognition you deserve for all your efforts. There's nothing like the power of positive thinking (and traditional good, hard work) to help bring about great results! You've also got a great opportunity on your hands to improve your love life. You're so generous and big-hearted that it will be hard for anyone to not fall for you, and that confidence of yours is equally sexy.In addition, you might want to take a look around at your life and try to determine if it's as absolutely great as it could be, or if there may be some things to improve. The timing couldn't be better for bringing about change than when you're in an idealistic frame of mind -- it makes letting go of the old or the negative so much easier. This is true for any aspect of your life. Meanwhile, if you're in the mood to expand your world, consider traveling. A far off place will add culture and knowledge -- as well as a bit of excitement -- to your own life. Your personal growth will inspire others.

Sun square Mars

Watch for aggression

Oh, have you got an aggressive temperament! And from this birthday to your next, you're going to want to do everything you can to keep that under control. Your energy levels are sky-high, but that means they're pushing your impatience factor off the charts. You'll find you have difficulties connecting with and truly understanding yourself, which will make it even more challenging for you to connect with those around you. Everyone from employers to loved ones could make you feel as though you're under attack, but you'll need to remember that this is just a phase and no one is really out to get you. One of the greatest advantages of this time will be your strength of character. If can you realize what's happening -- why you're losing your temper because your sweetie was two minutes late, or why your boss seems more demanding than usual -- then you can channel that energy toward improving the situation and calming yourself down. Focus this same energy on solitary projects and exercise, as well, since the more outlets you develop for yourself, the more successfully you'll get through these challenges.

Sun square Pluto

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 Scorpio

Mysterious minds

Is it possible to put a limit to where your mind might venture? In a word: No. Your thoughts will dig so deep under the surface, you might actually frighten others. Your penetrating gaze, smoldering as you contemplate every inch of your surroundings, could cause people to tremble in your presence. No secrets will be withheld from you, and even the most discreet or dishonest person won't be able to hide anything from your suspicious mind. No matter what crosses your path, you'll look for and find its darkest side.This entire year will be one of mysteries, and not one of them will be a match for you sharp intellect. In reality, there may not be more mysterious or suspicious activity than usual, so much as your ability to sniff it out will be quite astute. If you find yourself getting depressed because you're not getting anywhere with a particular situation, step back. Perhaps you should consider a more direct approach. You'll be inclined to hold back, but that will only make others distrust you. Try to remain open and honest no matter how difficult that might be. Your words will have the ability to transform and heal others, so be careful how you use your powers.

Mercury trine Saturn

Success is in the details

Organized, efficient, detail-oriented. One might almost begin to think that your goal for the year is to satisfy as many qualifications on a job posting as possible. Well, there are certainly worse goals out there than trying to do well at work, and with the way things are lining up for you above, it looks like this could be a banner year for your career.Your communication skills are well developed and you'll be able to process just about any piece of information that crosses your path. Supervisors and coworkers alike will be thrilled with your focused attention on all the little things that really make a project come together; no detail will be too small for your keen eyes. Use this time to prove just how effective you truly are, and don't be surprised if your industrious attitude helps you move up that ladder.Romantically, this could be a good year as well. Your attention to detail will make anyone feel special, and whether you direct this toward a current lover or someone new, you can bet they'll be eager to pursue the relationship further. In fact, if you're not already married, this is an ideal time to consider a more serious relationship than one you've had in the past.

Love and Romance: Venus

Venus in Sagittarius

Forget commitment

Who could possibly want to be tied down when there are so many options out there to explore? If you don't feel that way yet, you will soon. This will be a year of constant change and new experiences for you, and you won't want to waste your time on anything that remains the same for too long. While this may not be an ideal situation for serious relationships, you can bet you'll have a lot of fun. In fact, if possible, you should probably try to avoid commitment all together -- it just won't be your thing. You'll be much more interested in going out with as many people as possible and moving around frequently.Travel will certainly be high on your list of things to do, and the more places you can visit, the happier you'll be. You might even want to consider a foreign romance. If you can't get to a foreign country, then go out with someone who's visiting your town. A little taste of something different will be quite satisfying. Keep an eye on how you deal with money throughout your escapades, though. You'll be awfully tempted to just throw it around, but don't let yourself go overboard. Something like Las Vegas is a lot of fun, but it's not a dependable way to improve your financial situation.

Venus trine Neptune

Dreams and intuition

Your intuition is strong, and your dreams are perceptive. This is your year to learn how to use them to their fullest. The connections you have with people are so strong that you may appear psychic at times, but really, this will just be you showing off your incredible powers of perception. You'll be able to read people like books, and with just a glance. It's in that glance that you'll be searching for your soul mate. Your romantic ideals will reach a peak, and you won't want to settle for anything less than absolute perfection. Write out a list of all the qualities you're looking for in a partner. Now cut that list in half. That will be a more realistic approach to either finding someone new or fully appreciating the lover you already have.Spirituality will be strong for you, too. This next year will be no time to worry much about careers, but rather about dreams, about your connection to this world, about your connection to the people in this world. Because you'll be so in tune with everything around you, you'll find your understanding of the mass consciousness and opinion will be quite strong. You'll easily relate to large numbers of people because you'll appreciate their needs and desires.

Venus sextile Pluto

Deep connections

There is no such thing as a shallow love for you. Everything you do for the next 12 months will be done at the absolute deepest level, and you won't have any patience for small talk or superficial acquaintances. Get to know people for who they really are on all levels, especially your partner (or someone who may soon be your partner), and you'll discover a whole new world of relationships. It is through this knowledge that you'll achieve understanding, and it's through understanding that you'll achieve acceptance. You'll find that the more you know and understand people, the harder it is for you to feel anything but true affection for them.You'll find this acceptance also draws you to people in need -- you'll want to help anyone you can. Channel your subconscious, creative energies, and you'll come up with unique and successful methods to assist anyone who needs it. By effectively communicating your most basic values, you'll also find that you're more likely to come into contact with those people with whom you can have the deepest connections. You can use this skill to avoid those shallow associations that will drive you crazy.

Venus opposite Uranus

The choice: romance or independence

At some point you're going to have to make a decision: Do you want a relationship, or do you want your freedom? If you're in a relationship now, or if you start one within the year, you'll be torn between trying to create real intimacy and escaping to independence. If you really want love to prevail, you'll have to resist the urge to jump ship as soon as things get even a little complicated. It may be tempting to detach yourself emotionally, but you won't get anywhere romantically if you can't connect with your partner.All other aspects of your life will be a bit rocky as well, though not necessarily in a bad way. Your values will be up in the air, and you'll question everything you do, wondering if you've gone to far -- or if maybe you can push that envelope just a touch further. You'll face more commitment issues at work as you consider just how worthwhile that job really is. Financially, you may start to run into some trouble if you can't control your impulse buying, but then again, a spontaneous purchase on occasion can feel pretty good. Ultimately, you're going to have to allow yourself to be who you are. Your choices may seem more unusual than normal, but go with it, and just see what happens.

Ambition and Desire: Mars

Mars in Cancer

Emotional understanding

How you assert yourself and your emotions will play a key role in your associations and relationships in the coming months. You'll have an abundance of sensitive and caring energy building up inside of you, but if you don't know what to do with it, you may be frightened by it and try to deflect attention onto others. The result could be a passive-aggressive attack on someone, and you'll intuitively know just how to hurt them. In the end though, you could end up just as miserable.Instead of going on the attack, try to develop a deeper understanding of your own feelings. Your deepest desires will be for an emotional connection, but that will only successfully occur when you are in touch with your own instincts. Even sexually, you'll really only be aroused by someone with whom you feel an especially close connection. Consider working from home whenever possible, as you'll feel safe there, and therefore, more likely to work more successfully on your projects. Home, in fact, will be a place of solace for you, so you might want to expend some energy fixing it up, or gardening, or any type of home improvement where you take the lead. The work will make you feel both relaxed and revived at the same time.

Mars trine Neptune

Charitable directions

Though you may not realize it yet, you have the potential to influence large groups of people. The two areas where you'll see the greatest affects will be entertainment and charity. If you think those have nothing to do with each other, think again. One of the most useful things you can do for someone is provide them the occasional healthy escape from life -- it's no coincidence that people who couldn't afford anything during the depression still managed to get into movies, or that this was one of Hollywood's most successful eras.If you wanted to get into the entertainment industry, this will be a great year because you'll have the necessary aggression and persistence to get your foot in the door. Your fantasy world will be strong, and your ability to motivate yourself will be even stronger. You'll have a natural dramatic ability, so go out for a local production if Hollywood seems too far away. If you'd like to help out where you are (as you likely will), take some time to work at a volunteer organization or charity. You'll have an uncanny knowledge of what other people need, and your skills as a negotiator will help guarantee that they get it. Regardless of which direction you take, you'll be sure to come out successful by the time you reach your next birthday.

Mars opposite Pluto

Conflicts and manipulations

You want so desperately to be yourself, to be an individual. Yet the harder you try to go it alone this year, the harder a time you'll have. One of the biggest lessons you'll need to learn will be that not everything is about you. You need to consider others as well, or you could end up in jealous, possessive relationships or in power struggles with nearly everyone you come across.In fact, you may find that people almost seem to be trying to goad you with their intense interactions. Look beyond what you see on the surface and into the true soul of the person with whom you're communicating. There's a good chance that what you perceive as manipulation will actually be nothing more than your own projection -- something of your own creation. If you don't realize this, you'll likely respond with anger and aggression in an attempt to feel in control -- but you'll never have control if you can't even see what's really going on.It would also be wise for you to remember that the results do not always justify the means. Though it may be difficult, you'll need to put yourself in everyone else's shoes before you make any comments. If you wouldn't like to hear what you're about to say, then you should probably just keep your mouth closed.

Mars sextile Uranus

Rebellious improvements

It's been said that fools rush in where angels fear to tread. Though you'll certainly fall under the category of fool this year, few people will be able to fault you for it. You'll have an original and unique take on the world around you, and you'll come up with innovative and successful approaches to tried and true methods. And this won't just be about how to make a better TV (though it could be). You'll be on a mission to improve the world. You'll have beliefs to stand up for, and you may find yourself becoming something of a freedom-fighter.Your creative thoughts will fuel a fire toward a brighter tomorrow, but this year, your cause will probably still be unfamiliar to most and, therefore, seem a bit radical. In reality, this is because you'll have a very forward-thinking bent. In time everyone else will catch up (due, at least in part, to your incredible efforts), but in the meantime, you'll have to deal with working in defense of your cause. If possible, use this as a positive outlet for that rebellious, fighting spirit that will be building up within you. This will be an excellent opportunity for you to channel your rebel qualities into making a real difference in the world.

Travel and Finding Truth: Jupiter

Jupiter in Gemini

Expansive mind

Mind expansion can be a wonderful thing. The more you know and the more you let your mind grow, the more success you'll have in this life. Your mind will be eager to expand itself to its capacity and beyond these next 12 months. The problem with this expansion will be a lack of depth. You'll be eager to cover as many topics as possible without getting far enough into them to have a full grasp of their importance. Nonetheless, educating yourself will be your prime motivator, so gear yourself up for some impressive mental skills by the time your next birthday comes around.Anything that will get you thinking and growing will easily grab your attention, so head over to a local college and sign up for a course or two. If you've ever wanted to learn a foreign language or brush up on one you already speak, this will be an ideal time. Travel will also be great for you. Whether you become a world traveler or just get to know the flavors of some nearby towns, you'll love the new people, cultures and ideas you'll be exposed to. If you can't get away at all, then at least pick up a book and start reading; even if you're not normally a reader, you'll find you're easily immersed in colorful narratives during the next few months.

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 square Saturn

Progressive or traditional?

Do you want to work towards a progressive future, or do you want to use more traditional methods to keep your life flowing smoothly? Those are the two directions you'll be torn between as you move through the coming months. This may not seem like much of a difficulty right away, but don't underestimate the trouble that can be wrought when trying to decide between progressive and conservative -- one need only to look at the political dramas occurring all over the world to see how much of an impact these beliefs can have.In fact, you may begin to feel like there's a political battle raging within you. You'll start to feel as if you've become two people, as part of you tries to engage your intuition and vision, and the other half works to apply practical and tangible methods to any problems you face. What makes life hard will be a lack of communication between these two sides. You'll only start to experience an improvement to this situation when you learn to find the middle ground of these two opposing forces. In the meantime, you'll need to accept that you're going to be something of an inconsistent mess of mood swings, which could leave those closest to you feeling dizzy. Just remember that it's more important to have a consistent philosophy than a consistent technique.

Jupiter square Neptune

Unrealistic dreams

Reality is almost never the way you imagine it to be. For example, you're working on a project and you know you're doing your best work. So you start imagine how your supervisor will react. They're going to give you a promotion -- and a raise! You start to think about what you're going to do with the extra money (it will be a lot, of course). And then your computer freezes up and you lose all of your work because you forgot to back it up. Does that sound like a familiar scenario? Something along those lines has happened to everyone at some point, but this could practically become a theme for your year.So how do you work around such delusions? Hard as it may be, about all you can do will be to buckle down and really focus on the project at hand. Your imagination will clearly be working in overtime, so try to channel that energy into something successful -- put all of your daydreams into a journal, and you may have some exciting, publishable stories by the end of the year. Process everything in your life carefully, and do what you can to leap over any emotional or psychological barriers that might hold you back. You certainly have the mental capacity for achievement, but it will all depend on how successfully your can focus yourself.

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!
