Omg, so for those of you who have noticed that my favorite photo of me was done by the wonder Nick Knedler, then I have to show you how cool my awesome gift from Patrick Noon is, who he had painted by a local Burlington artist.
The Year Ahead
Forecast for April 2014 to April 2015
If You Were Born Today, April 5:
Multi-talented and artistic, you are wonderfully expressive, direct, and straightforward. You have little patience for people beating around the bush, as this is not part of your own nature. While you do say it like it is, and you can be surprisingly blunt, you might frequently change your convictions and goals when you are inspired and enthused about something new. Discontent with the status quo can lead you to seek unconventional and exciting adventures. Famous people born today: Spencer Tracy, Bette Davis, Colin Powell, Gregory Peck.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The Sun in harmonious aspect to the Moon in your Solar Return chart is a pleasant aspect, suggesting that your domestic and career needs are not in competition with one another this year. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa. You are likely to 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 keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there will be less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!
Some powerful transits occur to your Sun this year: Uranus transits conjunct and Jupiter transits trine. These suggest a more dynamic period ahead than most. Your progressive forward-looking attitude and approach to life leads you on a path of fresh, new, and interesting opportunities.
With Uranus electrifying your Sun this year, you can expect a more liberated and interesting year than most. Changes are in store for you, and they’re likely to be very positive if you recognize and honor your need for newness in your life. This influence brings about big changes, sudden events, unanticipated disruptions, and surprising situations into your life. These happenings are likely to have a major impact on your character, vitality, and individuality. You are undergoing a dramatic change during which you may feel the urge to break out and embrace new and exciting things. Life will be exciting–and the changes positive–if you go with the flow. If you deny your urge for change, feelings of restlessness and rebelliousness will unexpectedly erupt, prompting sudden lunges for freedom that can have surprising results and reactions.
Jupiter’s harmonizing transit of your Sun from September forward points to creative expansion, and for some, a boost in romance. You have a stronger than usual desire to improve and learn. Optimism and confidence are with you, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve, and your social life may very well improve. You are likely to enjoy good humor, optimism, and a larger perspective on matters that keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses and strains.
You are very likely to attract loving relationships and/or new warm social contacts into your life. Your popularity increases and efforts to smooth over challenges in partnerships are more likely to succeed. This is an excellent period for negotiations, marriage, and business partnerships.
Mercury harmonizing with Saturn certainly helps to ground your thinking and to turn your thoughts to practical considerations. Advances in intellectual and mental pursuits are likely, as you make steady progress that has long-lasting results. It’s a good year in which to get organized, to do detail work, and to prepare for the future. Work done during this period in your life will have tangible results in the future. Relationships with younger people in your life are solidified.
You can make significant headway in studies and pet projects this year, and business matters benefit from a more systematic and responsible approach. Even so, the year ahead challenges you to step out of your comfort zone, and new opportunities, particularly related to career, social life, and creativity, emerge. Your approach to life is more enterprising, unique, outgoing, and positive.
2014 is a Number Seven year for you. Ruled by Neptune. This is a year of preparation, chance, and refinement. It is not a time of dramatic changes. Instead, it’s a year when reflection on the past is helpful, and when refinements to your life path should be made. It’s a good year to study and analyze. Unexpected twists to your life story and “chance” meetings are probable. Advice – take stock of your life in order to prepare for more exciting years to come, examine the past and plan for the future, get in touch with your deepest needs and uncover your personal power, don’t strain yourself or actively try to expand.
2015 will be 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.
