Your Year at a Glance: what's the unique focus of your year ahead, specifically from a romantic point of view? This handy bar graph reveals your personal themes for the coming twelve months.
Each year marks a new and different phase of your life. What are your goals for this year? What would you like to learn or accomplish? What opportunities will arise for you this year, at work or in love? Your Solar Return report answers these questions more in depth, but this bar graph provides a quick view into the focus of your next year of life.
Based on that snapshot of the planets' positions at the exact moment of your Solar Return, the graph reveals the themes of your very own New Year. The more heavily featured planets in your Solar Return chart are the ones that will figure large over the next year. If Mercury makes lots of aspects with other planets, for example, this will be a big year for you in terms of communication and education. You might write a book or go back to school. If Venus makes several significant aspects, this could be a big year for you in love!
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...

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

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.
Is it possible to be too in touch with the people in your life (and in your friends' lives and on the news, etc.)? Actually, it is. Your intuition is so sharp that you'll be soaking up the emotions of others like a sponge. If this is simply a case of you responding to your lover's problem, that's fine. But when you start getting teary-eyed because the woman in the commercial doesn't like her razor, you'll know that you're feeling the side effects of this aspect.Not surprisingly, this year will be perfect for love, as everyone will be drawn to your practically psychic affections. Your abilities to see a person's inner beauty will also make you an attractive mate. So if you're already with someone, you'll find your love could blossom in the coming months. If you're single, you won't have any trouble catching the eye of whomever you are dreaming of.You may also notice that you're drawn to images of reality, such as photography, TV and movies. They make a lovely escape if your own world becomes too challenging. Don't forget to visit your imagination as well. Whatever you create now will be beautiful and perfect.
The dark side of your subconscious is normally found deep within your soul, but for the next year, the boundaries between your subconscious and conscious states will start to blur. Fortunately, you'll have such a good grasp on what's happening in your life that you'll be able to use this as an opportunity for positive transformation.You're perceptive, magnetic and mysterious, and others can't help but be drawn to you. Your relationships will be strong because of this, both romantically and in the office. In fact, most people you come across will see you as extremely powerful. In the bedroom, this will come out as an intense passion that could easily leave your partner hungry for more. While at work, your presence will be awe-inspiring, and with your drive and ambition, you'll have no trouble impressing your boss and other higher-ups. Your ability to cut to the core of a situation is strong now; don't underestimate your abilities, but also make sure you don't abuse this to take advantage of others. Your mind will be extremely creative, and all types of artistic outlets, from drawing to cooking, are strongly encouraged.
A bitter battle between freedom and commitment is about to ensue -- if it hasn't already begun. Relationships could get especially troublesome and even at work you'll feel confined and restrained. As the year progresses, and you find yourself even more desirous of a 'free' life, consider your reactions carefully. There's a good chance that everything you're doing -- pushing people away, trying to escape from a current situation -- is really a defense mechanism.Freedom is a state of mind, and no one is completely free to do everything they want. It's all about give and take. What you need to do is figure out if someone or something is really taking too much from you, or if you're just making excuses to get away. Are you really trapped, or are you just bored? It's possible that you've let yourself become extremely picky and you're waiting for the perfect person or situation. Before you can come to any accurate conclusion, you're going to have to spend a lot of time getting to know yourself and understanding what it is you need from a relationship or career. That's going to have to happen before you can have success with either.
Remember your high school chemistry professor? The one who called exams 'learning opportunities' and gave more homework than any other teacher? Remember how you, muttering under your breath, did all the problems and struggled to understand? And how, the next year, all that work paid off when you knew more chemistry than anyone else? Well, it's going to be that kind of year for you.Try as you might, you're not going to be able to avoid jumping over hurdle after hurdle on your road of life this year. No matter how well you've got things planned out, unforeseen difficulties arise and unexpected problems present themselves, forcing you back to the proverbial blackboard for new solutions and agenda adjustments. Crisis control becomes the norm, hindering forward progress. You feel like you're paddling with all your might, going upstream and getting nowhere. Now, the important thing is not that you're having crises, but how you're handling them. Giving up, giving in, taking the easy way all seem tempting but you know in your heart of hearts that the situation calls for gumption, hard work, and backbone. The consequence of giving in is an inner feeling of weakness and resignation. Taking the hard high road leads to future satisfaction.
Yours is a journey of understanding. There is no map, and there is no destination. Yet you will continue on with your trip enjoying the opportunities for growth and learning that will be presented to you. You will have the ability to grasp lofty concepts and ideas, and you'll be fascinated by the history of ideas, beliefs and philosophies. It will be your intent to soak up as much information as you can these next 12 months in order to help put your own beliefs into context.Sharing your beliefs will also play a critical role in the year ahead. Explaining ideas to others around you will help you develop a deeper awareness of the world. Consider writing out and publishing your thoughts as another effort to help people (and yourself) come to terms with the many concepts floating through your head. Be sure you allow your thinking to remain flexible at all times, though, regardless of the direction your knowledge takes. Letting yourself get caught up in the fundamentals of one idea will be a waste of your mental capacities. If you get stuck, then move on to something else. There will always be time to come back later, if necessary.
With the way you'll be chatting people up, it'll be like you just took a trip to Ireland and kissed the Blarney Stone... repeatedly. For the next year, you're going to have an incredible gift of gab. From social situations to romance, you'll know exactly what to say and when to say it.You'll have a natural eloquence, and you'll easily make sense of other people's ideas, confusing or otherwise. As you should be trying to keep the lines of communication as open as possible with as many people as possible, this ease of understanding will prove quite beneficial. Job associations and other relationships will flow more smoothly, and your ability to form new acquaintances will reach a high point. In fact, schmoozing, negotiating and diplomacy are skills you'll master this year. Love will also be a strong point for you since you'll be so good at saying what that special someone wants to hear. Just make sure you don't spend so much time talking that you forget to listen. Keep your emotions flowing openly and get creative with your dates -- poetry readings and museums will grab you now, and they always have just the perfect touch of romance.
Could the world possibly be more beautiful? Absolutely! And you're about to prove just how great it can get. Every one of your senses will be activated, and you will make it your mission in life to find beauty in even the ugliest scenes and to create beauty where there's nothing. You must remember, though, that beauty is relative, and it's impossible for all things to be aesthetically pleasing, no matter how hard you try to make it happen. Parts of this world must remain unsavory for us to appreciate the more desirable aspects.Your sweet soul, though, would love to see everyone equal and everything great. Perhaps that's not possible, but you can certainly do what you can to add more splendor to the areas around you. Take up an art project, or even help settle arguments between people. Your efforts will always result in some sort of good. And romantically, that's especially good news. Your pleasant charm and demeanor will make you an excellent and sensually exciting catch, and your affectionate and accommodating manners will place everyone's attention solely on you. Why look outward for beauty and justice, when it's so happily situated in you?
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.
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.
Your sexually energy is about to run rampant. You'll be fortunate enough to not only enjoy that with a partner (either someone you're with now or someone you'll meet soon), but you'll also be able to channel it toward necessary self-transformations. This is the perfect kind of energy for spicing up your love life and for making major changes to the rest of your life. Prepare yourself for some action this year!Normally, acting as you see fit, regardless of collective opinion, can lead to trouble, but in this case, you'll be focused on a worthwhile result; self-improvement. You may push this to a rather obsessive level, but as long as you use it to create something positive, something positive is what you'll get. The changes you put in place in your life will come easily to you, as will the changes that just occur naturally. You'll be able to adapt well to whatever is thrown your way, and you'll find that the more challenges you face, the more resilient you become. Nothing is going to get in the way of you doing what needs to be done. Your ability to transform yourself for the better -- and in the face of pressure and adversity -- will be quite impressive.
The mundane will drive you out of your mind, and anyone who moves too slowly could create a burning rage within you. Patience will be more than just a virtue for you this year; achieving a mere semblance of patience will be akin to climbing Mount Everest. To get through this year with as little strife as possible, you will have to seek out the unusual -- don't waste your time with anything that appeals to the bourgeois. You'll be so opposed to anything supported by the masses that you could get marked as a danger to their well being. Try to maintain your individuality this year, but without ruffling any feathers. If you feel like the world is out to get you, you may just be right. The general population rarely understands anyone who wants to move against the grain, and they'll be tempted to attack what they don't understand. This doesn't mean that you'll be at risk of a physical attack, but it does mean that your associations will be much more difficult than usual. You'll want to fly into a rage frequently as you face opposition on all fronts, but that will only make matters worse. Defend yourself and your beliefs, but aggression and brute force really won't get you anywhere. Challenge your intellect and come up with thoughtful, rational responses to difficult situations and interactions.
You have many lessons still to learn about life. As you know, you'll continue learning right up until the end, and the coming year is certainly no different. some of these lessons may be a little less pleasant than others. Your focus these next 12 months will revolve around how you deal with authority and responsibility and just how far you can and will go to get your way.Frustration will fill much of your time, as you will feel like your attempts to move forward are thwarted, and frequently by your own inability to act with enough responsibility the first time. You will become filled with anger as you begin to believe nothing will go your way. There's no real point in trying to hide your emotions because everyone will be well aware of them. It will be imperative that you calm down, rather than giving the appearance of doing so -- that way you can at least look at what's going on with a clear head. You're going to have to remember that this is a life lesson that is coming your way. The challenges you face this year will pass eventually, and you will come through stronger because of them. It will be a matter of learning to understand your reactions, and then figuring out where you can improve.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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!
