An astrological report prepared for

Person 1, born April 4, 1978:

Solar Return

Your Personalized Birthday Forecast

This is considered to be your own personal New Year, and it's known as the Solar Return. Astrologers have found that if you study the positioning of all the planets at that moment -- their relationships to each other and their placements in the signs -- you can gain insight into the upcoming year, until the Sun returns again.

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...

Recognition and Rewards: The Sun

Sun conjunct Jupiter

It's a wonderful world

Why have one of anything, when you could have many -- or all? This is one of the most favorable aspects, and your year will be filled with good luck, generosity and new experiences. You'll be full of confidence in yourself, and you'll have the optimism to believe that you can accomplish anything -- and you can! The word 'limitation' won't even make it into your vocabulary.Things will seem to magically work out for you, whether in love, money or family. Your natural generosity of spirit will make you a desirable partner -- but then, who wouldn't love you? Work relations will only improve, and you've got a great chance of earning yourself a raise or a promotion. Your thoughts and plans for the future will be more than successful; they'll earn you the respect you've been hoping for.Take advantage of this expansive time by increasing your knowledge of the world around you. This can include taking a class or a trip abroad. Enjoy your time, as you really can make just about anything come true, if you really want it to. The only things you might want to watch out for are a slight tendency towards arrogance, and a big tendency toward overindulgence. The concept of 'enough' may be elusive this year. But, who can help being a little arrogant, when you are nearly always right, as you will be this coming year!

Mind Expansion: Mercury

Mercury in Taurus

Steady thoughts

You're in no hurry to make any decisions this year. All ideas should be chewed on, mulled over and slept upon. A thorough and methodical approach is best -- or at least that will be your opinion these next 12 months. Keeping everything simple and straightforward is easy and it's always worked in the past, so why would you want to change anything? Beware that you're not avoiding new trains of thought because you're stubborn or, even worse, afraid to show there's something you don't know. Sometimes listening to others can bring about better and more practical ways of doing things. Still, you'll find that your steadfastness will be something that others will come to rely on, making you a stable force in a bumpy world. You'll be equally stubborn when it comes to how you communicate with people. You'll be slow and methodical in your speech, and you'll expect the same from those around you. Flowery prose will do nothing for you. Your simple approach can be extremely effective, though, especially when you're trying to prove a point. The straightforward, simple and concise way you'll have of speaking will make it easy for others to understand you, and you'll rarely have a need to say something more than once.

Mercury sextile Mars

Strong persuasive abilities

Throughout the year, you're going to develop an amazing knack for knowing just what to say. Whether the goal is to make a friend feel better about themselves or to convince your boss to follow your line of thinking, you won't have any trouble getting people to see things from your perspective.Your motivational and persuasive abilities are about to reach a peak, making this an ideal time for work. In addition to motivating others, you'll be ready and eager to take on whatever the world dishes out. Try to get yourself assigned to projects that involve communication. You've got great, concrete ideas, which will be easily backed up with hard facts. Everything from creating proposals to direct sales will be easy for you, and satisfaction will be found in every task you're able to cross off your list.Don't forget to take some time out for love as well. You'll have great energy, all conversations will flow smoothly and your creative mind will inspire highly romantic dates, which will be quite the treat for whomever you adore. If you're currently single but looking, take advantage of those great communication skills of yours to sweep someone special off their feet.

Mercury sextile Saturn

A transfer of knowledge

Persistence is a virtue. Yes, normally that saying is more appropriate with 'patience,' but in your case, the stars have made an exception. From now until your next birthday, you'll have the gumption to get the job done, no matter how much time and effort it takes. This will be made more powerful by the fact that you'll only apply yourself to projects that really are worth all that trouble.As you take on more projects and begin pestering people more to get the information you need, remember to call upon your own personal experiences for dealing with others. Consider how you respond to requests, and also offer up some advice to help with items other people are trying to cross of their lists -- your assistance will make them much more interested in helping you in return. If you find you enjoy the time you spend sharing your knowledge with those in need, you might want to consider teaching a class yourself. If that doesn't work out, try taking a class instead. Your mind will absorb and organize the new information well, and the simple transfer of knowledge is enough to make you happy now.

Mercury square Pluto

Crossing the line of obsession

Once you've decided something is important and worth your attention, woe to anyone who tries to change your direction or your mind. You'll become easily focused, to the point of obsession, on anything that manages to find a place in your brain. Whether this means solving a problem or convincing others to see something your way, you'll be absolutely relentless. Folks will just have to get out of your way to avoid being lost in the shuffle of that problem-solving machine you've got lodged in your head.If there has been a prickly point in your life about which you'd like to come to an understanding and possibly smooth out, this will be your year. You just won't let up until all the pieces have fallen into place -- and even then you'll still push around at them a bit to make sure nothing is loose. Through it all, the most important thing for you to remember will be to keep an open mind and remain tolerant of other people's thoughts about your actions and opinions. Just because you think it, doesn't necessarily make it so, and if you can't back down just a little, every now and then, you'll find that those you care most about will have a hard time being around you.

Love and Romance: Venus

Venus in Taurus

Heightened senses

Sensual is hardly a strong enough word to describe your approach to life and love in the coming months. Your five senses will be highly developed and you'll love everything in its most beautiful state, from soft fabrics to flavorful foods to enhanced colors to gentle music to the sweetest flowers. You will seek out warm and comfortably safe places and people, and you will see nothing but the best and most luxurious aspects of life.You can be a money magnet this year, helping you finance the security you desire. Still, there will be a fine line between earning enough so that you're comfortable and going to an extreme to guarantee that you have as much of a safety net as possible. This year is about living life to its fullest, and it's not a time to get too caught up in the rat race -- that will just make you miserable. Instead, enjoy all the little things around you, and realize that with a bit of diligence you can make almost any situation work out to your advantage. And of course, take some time out for love. With so much sensuality at your finger tips, you will make anyone you desire very happy.

Venus trine Pluto

Seductive romance

Emotions will be running so deep for you, that you may find it nearly impossible for them to manifest themselves in any realistic form. In fact, you may even be able to influence others with the depth of your feelings without them even realizing anything has happened. Your emotions will flow from great depths to even greater heights, and you will have such a commanding knowledge of the dark and powerful side of romance that others can't help but be drawn to you.Your seductive prowess will be extremely strong, and if you so desired, you could probably get just about anyone to bow down and kiss your feet. Fortunately, your understanding of others will prevent you from wanting to have such extreme power over them. You will make an outstanding lover, though, for anyone who's lucky enough to be with you. If you start the year out single, you'll have no trouble attracting a partner if that's what you're looking for. You'll also have an incredibly accurate instinct when it comes to finances and investing. So if you have a little extra cash, you might want to dabble a bit in the stock market -- and see if you can't come out ahead both financially and romantically by the year's end.

Venus conjunct Uranus

A free spirit

Everything you do this year will be inspired by your need for independence and freedom. In fact, 'free spirit' could easily become your nickname. This will be an excellent time for travel because you'll be so open to new experiences, and the more places you can visit, the freer you'll feel. If you can get the time and the money, head abroad for as long as possible. If that doesn't work out, then take mini breaks -- travel to the nearest city and paint the town red, or discover how many odd little tourist spots are within a one- to two-day drive from your house.When it comes to love, you may develop an attraction for people who are a bit unusual. You won't want a commitment, and you'll develop a desire for something a bit kinkier than a typical relationship. It's unlikely that you'll be willing to settle for someone who doesn't have the same bent you do. Creative endeavors will also take on a new twist. You'll be way ahead of everyone else, and it may take a while for others to fully appreciate your take on the world around you. Let your creativity manifest itself in any project you consider worthwhile and just wait while everyone else slowly catches up.

Venus sextile Neptune

Grounded ideals

You're about to create the perfect blend of romantic ideals mixed with a grounded knowledge of who you are and what you want. You'll be sharply in tune with your own needs, and you'll intuitively know what those around you seek as well. There's a beauty to be found in everyone, and you'll see it instantly in anyone you come across. Thus, finding a romantic partner will be surprisingly easy, or you could see something new and pleasant in someone you're already with. Either way, love will work out well for you this year.Your imagination will be alive and strong and most visible in the realm of the unknown -- the mystical world, the dream world, etc. If you allow this to manifest itself in some sort of art form, your creations will be striking with their hint of something unreal. You're going to have a very strong connection with the mysterious side of life, as you'll be one of the few people who can actually see past what's real and tangible into the unseen world that surrounds us. Whether that includes something more mystical and spiritual, or something psychological will simply be a matter of preference. Whatever direction you take, you can be sure that you'll come out of these next 12 months wiser and more attune to the world around you.

Ambition and Desire: Mars

Mars in Cancer

Emotional understanding

How you assert yourself and your emotions will play a key role in your associations and relationships in the coming months. You'll have an abundance of sensitive and caring energy building up inside of you, but if you don't know what to do with it, you may be frightened by it and try to deflect attention onto others. The result could be a passive-aggressive attack on someone, and you'll intuitively know just how to hurt them. In the end though, you could end up just as miserable.Instead of going on the attack, try to develop a deeper understanding of your own feelings. Your deepest desires will be for an emotional connection, but that will only successfully occur when you are in touch with your own instincts. Even sexually, you'll really only be aroused by someone with whom you feel an especially close connection. Consider working from home whenever possible, as you'll feel safe there, and therefore, more likely to work more successfully on your projects. Home, in fact, will be a place of solace for you, so you might want to expend some energy fixing it up, or gardening, or any type of home improvement where you take the lead. The work will make you feel both relaxed and revived at the same time.

Mars trine Saturn

Energized at work

Someone has to do the grunt work, and there's no reason it can't be you. You may not be able to offer up the most glamorous talents this year, but you will be able to dedicate yourself to your work in an honest and energetic manner that will prove to your coworkers and employers just how dedicated you are. The enthusiasm you exude will motivate others to work their best as well, prompting a successful and encouraging work atmosphere. This will open doors for you, and you could find yourself in the role of leader, if you're not there already.On the relationship front, you'll probably be looking for something more serious and long term. If you're already part of a couple, you may want to try to take things to the next level (moving in together or even marriage?). If you still haven't found that someone special, you'll probably start looking for someone else who's as serious-minded about love as you will be. Keep in mind, though, that this is all assuming you can drag yourself away from your work long enough to remember that romance exists. But love will be worth the effort, so do what you can to make some extra time for a few romantic nights.

Travel and Finding Truth: Jupiter

Jupiter in Aries

Major breakthroughs

Seeing your big ideas turn into reality will be no problem for you. You will have an incredibly fresh and innovative way of viewing the world, which will help motivate you to kickoff new projects this year. As you embark on whatever new path you choose, you'll intuitively know how to push your old methods aside to make room for the new ideas and people that will be coming your way.Breakthroughs will be a major theme in your life for the next 12 months. Your enthusiasm and eagerness will help you get started on projects, and the growth and understanding you develop as you move through the year will allow you to see these projects through to the end. In fact, individual growth will be one of those breakthroughs you'll experience, and once you get past any ego hang-ups that may be slowing you down, you'll be on a direct path to knowing exactly what and when things need to get done, as well as knowing how to do them. Are there any negative sides to this? Well, realizing that you're right so often might make you a tad arrogant, so you'll want to watch out for that, but on the whole, this will be your time to make something great happen with your life.

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.

This Year's Karma: North Node

Northnode in Taurus


Possessions can be fun, especially the buying part. But there is a point where material needs become too important, and you need to learn to cut back and remember how to appreciate the smaller things. Freeing yourself of possessions will be your goal this year as you march along on the path to your destiny. This will definitely be no easy feat since your 'things' are likely very valuable to you. And there's certainly no need to get rid of everything or head off into the mountains for a few months of meditation, but you will want to try to break from of your dependence on financial and material pleasures.Your direction in life is most likely to come into focus when you can simplify and reduce your dependence on anything material. It is then that you'll be able to see both the forest and the trees. At the moment, you are probably somewhat limited by your perceived need for a certain level of security, when, in reality, you have far more than anyone truly 'needs.' You must learn to create a natural sense of abundance through your emotions and your connections with the world. Realize that you can be comfortable with yourself as an independent entity, regardless of whether you've successfully 'kept up with the Jones's.'

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.

Neptune in Pisces

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.

Neptune sextile Pluto

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!
