The Year Ahead
Forecast for August 2011 to August 2012
The Moon is in its Balsamic phase in your Solar Return chart, which marks the end of an important cycle, or stage of growth, in your life. You may take more “down time” than normal this year, and this is natural, even good for you.
Your social life is likely to transform and grow this year. You may be making new contacts, and your ability to sway or persuade others is enhanced.
This is a good 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 motivated by the desire to strike a balance in your relationships and in your personal environment. Smooth negotiations with others are sought. You are more diplomatic and gracious this year. Social affairs, pleasure, amusement, and romance are in strong focus this year.
You are likely to be dealing with periodic “roadblocks” to your plans, and these are signals from the cosmos that you need to slow down and review your goals before moving forward.
A freer attitude towards expressing your affection is likely to attract friendships or love opportunities into your life. This year, you’re bound to enjoy increased social opportunities as well as a boost in your personal popularity and magnetism. Others are looking on you favorably, particularly friends and lovers (or potential lovers).
The opportunity to grow through your love or social connections this year is especially strong. You are seeking intensity in love, and are especially aware of the importance of healthy relating and intimacy. You could renew and deepen love commitments or social connections. Strong and stimulating–even motivating–attractions to others are likely. Secret loves or attractions may develop and existing relationships tend to rise to a higher level of insight and understanding. Romantic relationships and attractions can have a fated quality to them this year. This could be a year in which you fall in love, and this could be with a person, an activity, or a cause! Meeting someone who transforms your life, and more specifically your values and attitude towards love, is possible. Strong existing relationships can grow and transform in rewarding ways, as you are more open than usual to intensity and passion.
Your social life intensifies and transforms this year, either through making new connections, or by an enhanced reputation and connections with people who better reflect your own values. You’ll find that doors open to you this year, and that new connections are made, through learning endeavors. Your more artistic, gracious, and diplomatic nature is spotlighted.
2011 is a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time, when it is easy to enjoy life and other people. Focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure. It is likely to be a rather lighthearted year, when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a good year for expressing your creativity. Advice - reach out, but avoid scattering your energies.
2012 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.
