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 conjunct Venus

Rich with romance

Love and money -- what could be better? How about getting both without really working for them? Yep, for the next year you'll see an influx of each, and with very little effort on your part! Your mere presence is enough to drive whomever you desire to their knees, and you'll have the veritable Midas touch. So, whether you're looking for your perfect romance, or the perfect stock, know that your chances of success are skyrocketing. Just remember to maintain a level of moderation: nothing is good in excess. During this time, you'll exude (and attract) confidence and beauty. This has the potential to be one of the peak times of your life, and your best bet is to go out and celebrate as often as possible. The more social you can be, the more fun you'll have -- and the more likely you are to meet someone new and exciting (if you haven't already!). You have an aura about you, and whether you're with someone or still looking, you can bet someone interesting is going to have their eye on you. Take some time to expand your own creative abilities. You'll have an innate gift for capturing anything aesthetically pleasing. From painting to composing to writing -- or even amping up your sex appeal -- you have what it takes to bring the world to a halt.

Sun trine Saturn

Disciplined and dependable

You are what you do, and what you do is who you are. Your ego and your actions mesh exceptionally well. This will be an excellent year to take a close look at who you are and what you need to do to improve your life. You'll have all the discipline you need to do that job and do it well -- as well as whatever anyone else requests of you.So, it comes as no surprise that your job will go remarkably well for you. You can take on any project you're handed, and not only will the results be perfect, but you'll enjoy the work. You're decisive in your actions, and your grounded mentality will just add to your comfortable sense of responsibility. With such a strong focus on work, though, it may be surprising how important love is to you right now. The next 12 months will see you in a committed and dedicated frame of mind, and you'll be eager to take a more serious look at moving romance to the next level. In the midst of all of this, take some time to try to get to know yourself a bit better, too. You're on the track to self-discovery, and the timing is right for you to make some drastic changes -- if that's what you decide you want.

Sun sextile Mars

The will to succeed

You know who you are and you're quite comfortable in your own skin, thank you very much. With this faith in yourself, you've got all the markings for quite the pleasant year. You'll easily accomplish whatever you put your mind to, and you'll have the strength to stand up for yourself whenever necessary. That said, you'll also manage to be flexible when called upon to do so, especially by a certain attractive someone. The scales of ego versus others will balance out nicely for you, and you'll feel the benefits in all aspects of your life.Your confidence in yourself will help you mesh well with others, which will prove fortunate as you work your way to a raise or promotion -- and it will be even nicer in the bedroom. In order to really succeed this year, you'll have to take the focus off yourself a bit. Assist a coworker with a tough project. Remember to put your partner's needs above your own, at least some of the time. You'll be surprised by how much your thoughtfulness comes back to work for you. And adding to the pleasantries of this time will be your own excellent health. As if everything going well wasn't enough, you'll have plenty of energy and stamina to keep things at their peak level.

Mind Expansion: Mercury

Mercury in Leo

Childlike spirit

If you've ever been envious of the open, innocent and playful minds of children, you're in luck. You'll think in a friendly and jovial manner, and you'll relate easily to anyone you come across. Any topic, even the more mundane or unpleasant, could be enjoyable and palatable coming from your mouth. If you can maintain your positive energy and lighthearted, non-serious persona, your mind will be open to all sorts of exciting stimuli.Entertainment would be a great field for you this year, as you'll not only love being in a crowd, but you'll find that people are magnetically drawn to hearing you speak. Though you won't be particularly interested in heavy, intellectual debates, you'll certainly be able to hold your own in any conversation. Your pleasant wit and charm will leave everyone satisfied with any discussion or show you put on, regardless of the views you express. Just be sure you don't let yourself get too egotistical. It could become awfully easy for you to think very highly of yourself because of the positive reactions you get from those around you, but don't let it go to your head -- that kind of thinking could lead you to become too dependent on the approval of others.

Mercury trine Neptune

Create your perfect world

Whenever you close your eyes this year, you'll suddenly be surrounded by a whole new world; it's one of your own creation and one where everything is perfect. The best part though, is that when you open your eyes, that perfect world will still be there. You've got the intuition to find only the best aspects of life, as well as the best people. Words will become your best friends. You'll know what, how and when to say exactly what someone else needs to hear. When you turn this talent toward a creative field such as poetry, literature or music, you'll find your skills exceed anything you could have imagined possible. You'll also notice that artistic images seem to flow through your mind, one after another: keep a sketchbook and pencil handy for any visions that seem especially perfect for paper. When it comes to love, these same talents couldn't be more ideal. It all boils down to you having an almost psychic sense of the world around you, and a lover will be pleased to have you instinctively know what they need. So if you're in a relationship, you'll be able to take it to the next level by knowing exactly what your partner wants. Or, if you're single and looking, you'll have no trouble finding just the right words to make a romantic interest fall for you instantly.

Mercury sextile Jupiter

Achieving mental clarity

With your mind working as fast as it will be this year, you could find yourself wondering just why anyone bothers with computers! Well, slow down a bit every now and then, and remember that not everyone can think as fast or as well as you. Then feel free to get that mind of yours back into high gear, as you'll have success with all of your mental pursuits.You'll find you're especially talented when it comes to communicating your thoughts and ideas, as well as teaching others about more complex issues. You'll read and write with impressive clarity, and you'll have no trouble both understanding some of the world's most challenging problems and sharing your newfound wealth of information with others. Use this time to get out and about as much as possible -- the more you can see, the more you'll learn, and the happier you'll be. You can also take advantage of your mental state to improve your work and romantic situations. At work, try to wrap your mind around as many problems as possible; your boss will be thoroughly impressed as you solve issue after issue that has plagued the company. In your free time, you can use your excellent communication abilities to improve a current relationship or get yourself started on a new one.

Mercury opposite Pluto

Avoiding the propaganda

There's some sort of agenda behind everything that's said -- and that includes whatever's coming out of your mouth! For the next 12 months, you'll want to be careful that you aren't being hoodwinked, but you'll want to be equally sure that you're not trying to take advantage of someone else's gullibility instead. There's such a fine line between persuasive arguments and propaganda (or even lies). You'll need to work hard this year to make sure your statements are clear and honest with no attempt to deceive.Manipulation will run rampant, and it will be up to you to rise above it. Use this as a time to get away by yourself and do a little self-reflection. Your mind will be sharp, and you'll easily get to the bottom of any problem -- if you can just escape the rest of the world for a little while. Some obsessive tendencies might creep into your life soon, and you'll want to be sure you're putting them to positive use, rather than just dwelling on something inconsequential. You might even want to consider professional counseling to help you understand everything that's going on around you.

Love and Romance: Venus

Venus in Cancer

Trembling with emotion

Deep, romantic love was created for emotional creatures like yourself. If that isn't true at the time you read this, then just wait for the next few months to go into effect! Your entire being will tremble with love and emotion. Roses and candlelight will be the pathway to your soul. It will be so easy for genuine emotions to flow through you -- both your own and those of others -- that you'll have no trouble making sense of any relational confusion going on around you.You might even want to consider counseling. If you aren't already on the path to becoming a professional counselor, then consider helping out your friends. Your empathetic nature will cut to the core of any issues they may be having, and you'll be able to help them come to a resolution over problems that may arise. Your imagination will also be strong, which will aid in your empathies, but it will also help you create a more perfect world for yourself. Imagining the romantic world you'd like to live in will be the first step toward turning it into a reality. This will be a very sensual time for you, so live it up and let the emotions just run over you like water.

Venus trine Saturn

Stable, long-lasting love

In a world of constant changes and unreliable people, you're becoming a rock. You'll be one of those dependable, loyal people that everyone loves to have around this year. You won't be particularly social, but you'll accept anyone who comes to you. Relationships will begin easily, mainly because you won't feel like dealing with anyone who doesn't connect well with you. These same relationships will also be much more likely to last longer because you'll just naturally have a stronger connection to people who are reliable. So romantically, you could find yourself with a strong, stable partner.Though you won't be overly social, you will find yourself concerned with appearances. You'll be very much aware of the public image of those with whom you associate yourself, as well as what others think of you. Try not to let this go to your head; let your grounded nature override any shallow tendencies. Help someone (or many someones) in need this year. Simple things like making soup for a sick friend or volunteering at a homeless shelter will go a long way toward helping another and feeling good about yourself. On the financial side of things, if you have a bit of extra money, this year will be a good time to invest as you'll be likely to see a pleasing return.

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 Mars

Building relationships

From romance to friendship, you'll have a knack for building strong relationships with people. And whether you're part of a couple or searching for that perfect person, you'll have the skills and the luck to make it all work out. You'll have an incredible energy surging through you this year, and if you direct it toward romance, you'll reap the rewards.Be as social as possible for the next 12 months -- get out on the town, go out on dates, have fun with your friends -- anything to keep that energy flowing into positive, exciting outlets. In fact, you'll have something of a flair for exciting and stimulating relationships, whether friendly or romantic, and you can bet those around you will have a hard time getting enough of you. You'll be strong-willed when necessary and more than willing to stand up for any issue or person who needs your support. Building and creating are key, whether that means building up relations or applying yourself to creative projects. All of this will only add to your magnetic appeal, and people just won't be able to help but be drawn to you. Make them happy and host many parties and get-togethers. Again, the more social you are, the more you'll enjoy your year.

Venus opposite Pluto

The darker side of romance

There will be a raw intensity to your desires this year, a dark side to your passions. Control will play a central role in all of your relationships. Are you the one in power, or do you feel powerless? From work to sex, power-plays will rule all of your actions. Will your control stem from real power, or will it be an illusion you create because your self-esteem isn't where it should be? It will be up to you to harness your deepest, darkest emotions in an effort to truly be the master of your domain.Love and sex will be areas of your life that will require close attention. This will likely be a good year for both, as you'll feel an almost fated sense of attraction to whomever you're with -- you two (regardless of when you met/meet) are meant to be together. However, this strong attraction could fuel feelings of possessiveness and obsession. Be sure you don't take your deep-rooted love for this person too far -- obsession and jealousy do not equal love. If you feel like you're starting to go overboard, you'll want to study your emotions and try to determine just where they're coming from. Even your most superficial relationships could develop a certain level of intensity, and one your biggest challenges will controlling your sexual magnetism.

Venus sextile Uranus

A unique take on others

Flashes of brilliance, intuitively knowing what others want -- you're golden, and your intelligence will shine brightly in the coming months. Your mind will sharpen and it will become easier and easier for you to relate to people. You'll get to the point where you almost seem to psychically know what others need. Sexually, this will make you a very enjoyable partner. You'll likely get bored easily, though and find you move on to someone new at a more frequent rate than you're used to -- not necessarily in a promiscuous way, but on a more intellectual level.Your keen mind won't settle for anything less than the smartest types you can find, and you'll be drawn to interesting and unique folks. Social situations will provide you an opportunity to be more open, as you'll be able to wander through the crowd getting to know all sorts of new people. The inspiration you receive during these interactions could help you further some sort of creative pursuit you've been working on. If you find your values differ from others, try to explain them more clearly. With time, you'll find that people tend to come around to your way of thinking.

Ambition and Desire: Mars

Mars in Taurus

Sensual energy

At your very core is an energy that is sensual and solid. You will have an honorable work ethic and a drive to defend anything that is of value to you. At the same time though, you could have some lazy tendencies, preferring to just enjoy life as it passes you by rather than actively participating. Try to keep the former traits strong and push back any laziness. You can accomplish a great deal and create an incredible sense of security if you channel that core energy of yours into asserting yourself for worthwhile causes.Sex will also be of crucial importance to you this year. Everything related to touch will hold a special place in your heart, but your personal relationships will be an especially powerful force in your world. Your sexual drive will be strong, but you'll want to ground it in tangible, physical ways that require you to assert yourself. A new exercise program could help. Sexual energies will be an important part of your self-worth and if you can focus those energies into making yourself look better, you'll feel better about yourself, as well. Just make sure you get out and do something, rather than letting stubbornness or laziness hold you back.

Mars conjunct Uranus

Rebellious energy

'Rebel without a cause' doesn't even begin to describe you. For the next 12 months, it will practically be your goal to stand out from the crowd, whether you have a good reason to or not. However, if you put this energy toward a good cause for creating a positive change, then your rebellious nature will take on a unique, activist-type approach that will benefit you and those around you. You are about to become a warrior for new and improved ways of doing things. Whether that's a faster way to mow the lawn or attempting to end world hunger, your efforts now will put you ahead of the crowd. You'll have energy to spare when it comes to putting your plans into action. Just make sure there's reason and method to your madness. Creating change for the mere sake of creating change is not necessarily the best approach. Realize that some routines are there for a reason, and altering things could make life more difficult for anyone involved -- including you. If you find yourself filled with an unusually strong anger or passion, put it to good use. Volunteer for a political campaign or join an organization that stands up for a cause you believe in: Just get out there and do something positive with your energy.

Mars sextile Saturn

The pleasure of success

An example of a day in your life this year: You plan out your day carefully on your calendar. You execute every last detail at exactly the time indicated. As you check off your last item, you smile, knowing you'll be going home fulfilled. If that sounds silly, just wait until it comes true. It's been said that the cure for depression is industry, and this year, you'll be quite happy.Your energies will be directed toward responsibility and a dedication to your work. Nothing will be finished until it's been done to the best of your ability, and you will be holding everything you do to the highest of standards. While that may sound tedious to some, it will be ideal for you. You really couldn't be happier than when you've just completed something as planned, if not better. And fortunately for you, your superiors will feel the same way. Though this may not be the greatest year for you when it comes to relationships (don't worry; it won't be bad, but rather neutral), you will shine with flying colors in whatever it is you do for a living. Take advantage of this time to move your career as far forward as possible.

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.

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.

Uranus sextile Neptune

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.

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!
