Happy Birthday!

Another year older, and I'm shocked about how quickly time is passing.

This year, I celebrated my birth day with Rob, crossing the lake and then enjoying a quiet supper at the club with Alex and Penny. Really, the whole week has been a gift,  renovating the front garden, spending a week's vacation on the boat, visiting wineries, going to plays.

I feel a bit like I need to make a resolution or two, with the turning of a New Year.  A good start would be to revisit the great advice I was given last year at this time.

My horoscope promises this year will be the opportunity for some kind of turning point.  We'll see what lies ahead.

If Today is Your Birthday: September 7

The Year Ahead

Forecast for September 2012 to September 2013

Famous people born today: Grandma Moses, Buddy Holly, Chrissie Hynde, Shannon Elizabeth, Michael Emerson.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

When a Quarter Moon occurs in your Return chart, as it does this year, you are at some sort of a turning point in your life, in terms of personal growth. Events that occur this year act as catalysts that get you in touch with some important issues in your emotional life. Your emotions run high, and mood swings or identity crises are possible. There may be some kind of conflict in your life arising from a great urge to do something different. The year ahead promises to be a busy, dynamic, and significant period in your life.

You are likely to be especially busy this year, juggling many different activities. At times, you may feel like the pace of your life is running ahead of you. You can be especially productive, however, in all types of communications--writing, speaking, learning, teaching, and so forth.
You might find that you become more goal-oriented this year, as superficial goals no longer satisfy you. You want your objectives to reflect what you're really about, and you are likely to rid yourself of unsatisfying goals this year. You benefit from being more decisive than usual, and your ability to concentrate and focus helps you to achieve what you set out to do. A new project or goal begun this year has a good chance of being successful and long-lasting. Your sexual and physical activities tend to be more intense and passionate. It's an excellent year in which to make a lifestyle change, as your ability to concentrate on what really matters to you is enhanced.

There may be a project, idea, or person that demands much of your attention or occupies much of your thoughts. It's a strong year for any project or studies that require concentrated effort. You are especially resourceful.

With Venus in a tense aspect to Saturn in your Solar Return, getting serious about love or money (or both) can be a theme this year. Money may be tight, or the need to buckle down with your finances may be necessary. This does not necessarily signify financial losses or hardship, but you are likely to have an increased awareness of your limits. The responsibilities of partnership are magnified this year. You are likely to be more earnest on a romantic level. An existing relationship may become more serious, or you may form a new partnership with a serious or older person. You are likely to work hard this year, and this could interfere with pleasure time. Opportunities to socialize may be reduced, and this could be the result of increased responsibilities or it could stem from your own insecurities or lack of confidence on a social level this year.

Nevertheless, you are likely to make at least one significant new connection that boosts your confidence in yourself.

There can be the need to buckle down and work hard, and perhaps to control your spending as well this year. It's a good year for making important lifestyle changes or for kicking a bad habit. You are more inclined to put your ideas into action than usual. Focus is the major key to success this year.
